Music production company Lantis began streaming the third episode of the GraP & RodeO original anime inspired by the musical duo GRANRODEO (Kuroko's Basketball opening themes) on Wednesday.

In this episode, GraP asks RodeO if he plays any instruments, and RodeO responds that his instrument is his voice. GraP makes fun of him and afterwards starts to teach him guitar.

The anime follows RodeO, an exceedingly ordinary high school boy whose dream is "to become a rock star." A creature appears before RodeO and introduces itself as GraP, a music producer from the future. "I will make you a star!" Can GraP turn RodeO into a rock star like GRANRODEO?

GRANRODEO lead singer Kishō Taniyama is voicing RodeO himself, while Hiroki Konno of the comedy duo King of Comedy is voicing GraP. The other cast members include Yūsuke Katayama of the Hikarigoke comedy duo and Aya Saitō.

GRANRODEO's other member, Masaaki Iizuka is also performing the opening and ending theme songs. Taketo Shinkai (Kayoe! Chūgaku) is directing and writing the anime, and Jun Oson is providing the illustrations. Lantis and Pie in the sky are producing.

The first episode aired on BS Fuji on October 19 during GRANRODEO's Rodeo Club - Season II variety show. Tokyo MX aired the episode on November 4.
