posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Theater company Alice in Project and animation studio Hoods Entertainment (The Qwaser of Stigmata, Fantasista Doll) are collaborating on the Gekidol project. The project will combine stage theater, anime, and idols. The project will launch in spring 2016. The project opened an official website and Twitter account, and the project also has a booth in Comic Market 89. The website reveals a teaser visual for the project, with the text "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. Theater + anime + idol = Gekidol."
The project's Comic Market booth is distributing a handout that provides more details on the project. The official Twitter account is previewing portions of the handout, including an English version.
