Ensemble Stars! Game's Website Images List Anime, Stage Play
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The "multimedia" website for Happy Elements K.K's Ensemble Stars! smartphone game is currently hosting images that list that the game will get an anime and a stage play adaptation. The images themselves are not live on the website, but the website lists three "coming soon" boxes (see first image below) as part of the game's eight-part multimedia project. The image URLs corresponding to the sixth, seventh, and eighth boxes (based on the image URLs for the first five already-announced projects) list two novels, an anime, and a stage play, respectively (see second image below). The image for the novel project states that the two novels will ship in November 2015, and Animate lists that both novels shipped on November 14.
A separate image (pictured below) hosted on the site that is also currently not live also lists the same anime and stage play project.
The "idol-training produce game" takes place at a private boys' idol-training school with a history of turning out many great talents in show business. The protagonist is the school's lone female student who transfers to the school because of a special situation, and enters the school's producer department. Novelist Akira ([email protected]) wrote the original scenario for the game.
The game features eight different idol units and has a cast of more than 30 male voice actors.
Past multimedia projects for the game have included merchandise, a manga adaptation that premiered in Kodansha's ARIA magazine in August, a B's Log official "mook" book, a collaboration with the Animate retail store, and debut singles for all eight of the in-game idol units.
