Show By Rock!! TV Anime's 2nd Band Promo Video Posted

posted on by Karen Ressler
Fictional visual-kei band introduced for 2015 series based on Sanrio mobile game

A promotional video for ShinganCrimsonZ, one of the bands in the Show By Rock!! television anime, debuted during the anime's Niconico Live program on Friday.

The ShinganCrimsonZ are a visual kei band who, like the main characters' band Prismagica, aim to be the top band in the world. Their catch phrase is, "We continue fighting against stagnant fate in the crimson mind's eye!"

The staff of the show is unveiling new images of new bands from the show every month. The first video introduced Plasmagica.

The anime Show By Rock!! adapts Sanrio's mobile phone rhythm game of the same name. Sanrio began distributing the game developed by Geeks for iOS and Android in 2012. The game is free to play, but has in-game items that can be purchased.

Sanrio describes the story of the original game on its website:

Metropolis of music, MIDICITY. A kitty girl wearing gothic lolita clothing named Cyan is scouted by Maple Arisugawa, the president of a music agency. From there, she meets chuchu (a pun off of the sound that rabbits make) the honor student rabbit girl, a net geek dog girl named Retoree (from "Retriever"), and an alien sheep (?) girl named Moa. Together, they form the band named "Plasmagica," and aim for the top of the world.

However, the path there is long and tough, and keeping in high spirits is important. By battling against other strange bands, Plasmagica slowly grows toward a top-grade band. In the end, they'll be a band that becomes the driving force of MIDICITY's music industry... Maybe?

Gonna be a music millionaire!

The cast of the original game for Shingan CrimsonZ includes:

Kishô Taniyama (Attack on Titan, A Certain Magical Index, Junjō Romantica) as Crow, the guitarist and vocalist

Jun'ichi Yanagida (background characters in Haganai, K, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse) as Aion, the guitarist

Mitsuhiro Ichiki (Freezing, Maid Sama!) as Yaiba, the bassist

Teruyuki Tanzawa (009 Re:Cyborg, Tayutama - Kiss on My Deity) as Rom, the drummer

Plasmagica's cast in the original game is as includes:
