Nitro+'s Super Sonico Mascot Gets TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The staff of the Japanese software maker Nitroplus confirmed on Saturday that a television anime adaptation of its Super Sonico mascot has been green-lit. Nitroplus already opened a website for SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation-, which was first announced at the Nitro Super Sonic 2013 event earlier in the day.
Super Sonico is the mascot girl of the "Nitro Super Sonic" events held by Nitroplus. In her back story, she is already a photoshoot model, game character, and a musician, even as she studies as a college student. She is also part of a three-piece girl band named "Daiichi Uchū Sokudo" (Fastest Speed in Space) as the vocalist and guitarist.
The character already inspired her own line of games, and figures including a giant 1/2-scale statue. Super Sonico is also appearing in Namco Bandai Games' Super Heroine Chronicle for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita systems and even in a promotion for THQ's Saints Row: The Third game.
