2nd film in idol anime franchise opens in Japan on August 22

The official website for the Aikatsu! Music Award: Minna de Shō o Moraima SHOW! anime film began streaming the film's first trailer on Friday.

In the film, an Aikatsu! All-Star awards ceremony will take place. The film will feature songs and stages featured throughout the anime series. The film will run about 50 minutes long in 50 theaters throughout Japan, and it will be shown in both 2D and stereoscopic 3D. The first 100,000 film attendees will receive a 3D Aikatsu! card.

Shinya Watada (Aikatsu! episode director, Gundam Build Fighters Try) is directing the film at Bandai Namco Pictures. Ryuichi Kimura will serve as supervisor, and Hiroko Yaguchi will serve as character designers.

The first 50-episode Aikatsu! television anime series premiered in 2012. Daisuki began streaming the series last September. Daisuki describes the series:

Ichigo Hoshimiya is an average first-year middle school student, but after her best friend Aoi encourages her to enter Starlight Academy, a famous idol-training school, Ichigo's whole life changes. She meets various rivals, becomes proficient in abilities that are integral to idols, and uses Aikatsu! cards while challenging herself with an array of auditions.

The curtain has risen on newbie idol Ichigo's cheerful, energetic idol activity!

The second half of the third season of the Aikatsu! TV anime series premiered in April, and the fourth season will premiere in October. The franchise's first film opened in Japan in December 2014.
