The official [email protected] website announced on Wednesday that THE [email protected] MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e! (The [email protected] Movie: To the Glittering Other Side!) has earned a total of 765,217,400 yen (about US$7.65 million). Released in Japan on January 25, the film ended its initial 11-week run on May 30 and earned 678,422,000 yen (about US$6.6 million) by selling 462,693 tickets.

In the film, the producer works his very hardest to help the 765 Production idols prepare themselves at a training camp for their first arena concert. He also reveals that there are new girls joining the team as back-up dancers for the arena concert. These girls are all idols featured in GREE's The [email protected]: Million Live mobile game that started service last year. The idol Haruka is also named the leader of the group, and she is held in high esteem by the new girls, whose futures will be decided after the concert.

THE [email protected] MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e! will be released on Blu-ray on October 8.

A new [email protected] anime series will premiere in January 2015. Much of the staff from the 2011 The [email protected] anime seiries will return for the Cinderella Girls anime. Noriko Takao will direct the series at A-1 Pictures, and will also provide series compostion alongside Tatsuya Takahashi. Yuusuke Matsuo (The [email protected] [email protected] Master Namassuka Special CD jacket illustration, Yama no Susume character design) will design the characters. North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks acquired Sunrise's 2007 loose television anime adaptation of the franchise. It predates A-1 Pictures' more direct adaptation by four years. Crunchyroll streamed A-1 Pictures' version as it aired in Japan.
