New Uta no Prince-sama 'Theater Shining' Project Teased

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Project developed with the keyword "movie", splits 11 idols into 4 teams

On Tuesday, the official webiste of the Uta no Prince-sama media franchise announced a new project tentatively named "Theater Shining" (named similarly to the franchise's "Shining Agency"). The site also opened a teaser website for the new project.

The announcement did not note the format of the new project, although the project's page notes that the project will be developed with the keyword "movie." The announcement notes that the project will split the 11 idols of the Shining Agency into four teams.

The project page will announce more details, including the project's title and cast, "soon."

The Uta no Prince-sama media franchise originates from Broccoli's similarly named dating simulation video game series for female players. The games were adapted into three television anime series. The first series, Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 1000%, aired in Japan in July 2011, and ended in the September of that year. Niconico streamed that series outside of Japan as it aired. Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 2000%, the second series, premiered in Japan in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the series outside of Japan as it aired. Uta no Prince-sama Revolutions, the third series, premiered in April. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the first and second anime series and released them on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in North America in 2014. Sentai Filmworks has also licensed the third series for North America.
