Shonen Hollywood Gets 2nd Anime Season in January

posted on by Egan Loo
Announced after 13th episode on Saturday

The 13th episode of the Shōnen Hollywood - Holly Stage for 49- television anime ended on Saturday with an announcement that the second season, Shōnen Hollywood - Holly Stage for 50-, will premiere next January.

The anime is inspired by Ikuyo Hashiguchi's mixed-media project Shōnen Hollywood and is produced by anime studio ZEXCS (Diabolik Lovers, Cuticle Detective Inaba) and the music label Starchild Records. Shogakukan Bunko published Hashiguchi's original popular novel Shōnen Hollywood in July 2012.

The anime tells an original story, set 15 years after the novel's story. It takes place at a fictional theater called Hollywood Tokyo in Harajuku, where members of the idol group "Shōnen Hollywood" develop their talents with diligent work and studying. The cast includes several original members of Shōnen Hollywood from the novel. The franchise also inspired a new manga that launched on Saturday.
