Bandai Visual began streaming a promotional video on Wednesday for the upcoming Aikatsu Stars! television anime. (Note: The linked video is region-locked to Japan.)


Yume: Someday I'll be the top star idol. Yume Nijino. Aikatsu begins!
Yume: Nice to meet you, everyone! I'm Yume Nijino, a first-year middle school student at Yotsuboshi Academy.
Yume: Together with all my friends, we train to be idols every day.
Yume: What are we aiming for? To be the top idols that everyone adores, S4!
Yume: Right now, I'm just at the starting line, but someday I'll grow up, I'll shine as the top star on that wonderful stage.
Yume: Aikatsu Stars! premieres on April 7, 2016. Tune in, everyone!

The Aikatsu Stars! television anime series will premiere first on TV Tokyo and its affiliates on April 7 at 6:25 p.m., and it will air on Thursdays. The show will also air on BS Japan on Mondays at 5:00 p.m.

An anime film will then follow in Japanese theaters on August 13. A new anime short tentatively titled "Aikatsu! ~Nerawreta Mahō no Aikatsu Card~" (Aikatsu! ~Aiming For the Magic Aikatsu Card~) will also screen alongside Gekijōban Aikatsu Stars!. The film and the short will mark the first time the franchise is screening a double feature.

The TV anime series and film will star:

Miyu Tomita as Yume Nijino
Ayaka Asai as Laura Sakuraba
Minami Tsuda as Hime Shiratori
Sumire Morohoshi as Tsubasa Kisaragi
Azusa Tadokoro as Yuzu Nikaidō
Ayaka Ohashi as Yozora Kasumi

The series will feature a new protagonist named Yume Nijino. Yume aims to become a top idol, and she enrolls in the Yotsuboshi Gakuen (Four Stars Academy). This academy has a special group called the S4, who are the top four active idols in the school. Yume and the other first-year students aim to become a part of the S4.

The film will revolve around the students of the Yotsuboshi Gakuen traveling to a southern island in search for the "Legendary Dress."
