posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The video reveals that the show will premiere on October 2 at 10:00 p.m. on Tokyo MX. The anime will also air on TV Aichi, Yomiuri TV, and BS11, and will stream on the dAnime Store. The video also reveals that the in-anime band Plasmagica is performing both the show's opening theme song "Heart wo ROCK!!" and the ending theme song "My Song is YOU!!".
The website has also revealed that the new three-member band BUD VIRGIN LOGIC is joining the new series. The band's cast includes:
Ruriko Noguchi as Eileen, the band's vocalist and guitarist. She is a girl of the Royal Lion tribe, and is charismatic, beautiful, and has the personality of a king. However, she is also clumsy, so she often falls over and drops things.
Aimi Tanaka as Paypain, the band's bassist. She is a member of a rare Dark Giraffe tribe, and has since a young age been in charge of a mysterious organization. She serves Eileen as her maid. She hides a lot of weapons under her skirt, and she is quite scary when she gets angry.
Ibuki Kido as Handrek, the band's drummer. She is a "Mumroid" girl who was secretly developed at a facility owned by a mysterious organization. She joined the band after becoming Eileen's playmate. She calls Eileen "Master" and Paypain "Maid."
Takahiro Ikezoe is returning from the original Show by Rock!! series to direct the anime at BONES. Touko Machida, who wrote the scripts for the first eight episodes of the original anime, is handling the series composition. The main cast members — including the characters from the Plasmagica, Shingan Crimsonz, Tsurezure Naru Ayatsuri Mugenan, Trichronika, and Criticrista bands — are returning from the first season. Yūji Ueda is also returning to play Mable Arisugawa.
The new band Arcareafact is joining the series, and the group's cast includes:
- Yūsuke Kobayashi as Chitan, the main vocalist and pianist whose parents are both famous musicians. "With my piano, I spin the world."
- Taku Yashiro as Orion, the violinist and de facto band leader. "The glittering finest gold, noblesse oblige!"
- Eishin Fudemura as Seren, the bass guitarist and son of a "cosmic-level" major group leader
- Chiharu Sawashiro as Arugon, the drummer
