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 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.

The previews reveal that, beginning next spring, Alice in Project will hold actual stage plays based on plays that appear within the anime's story. Hoods Entertainment will animate the anime project.

In addition, the booth is showing a promotional video. The official Twitter account is streaming a preview of the promotional video.
