Tenshi no 3P! Light Novel Series Gets TV Anime in 2017
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Kadokawa announced at the "Dengeki Bunko Aki no Saiten 2016" event on Sunday that Ro-Kyu-Bu! light novel author Sagu Aoyama and illustrator Tinkle's Tenshi no 3P! (Here Comes the Three Angels) light novel series is getting a television anime adaptation that will premiere in 2017.
The anime will star:
- Yūki Inoue as Kyō Mekui
- Yūko Ōno as Jun Gotō (nickname Jun-tan)
- Yurika Endō as Nozomi Momijidani (nickname Zomi)
- Aoi Koga as Sora Kaneshiro (nickname Kuu)
- Rina Hidaka as Kurumi Mekui
Shinsuke Yanagi (Ro-Kyu-Bu! SS, And you thought there is never a girl online?) is directing the anime at anime studio project No.9. Takayuki Noguchi (Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Girls Beyond the Wasteland) is adapting Tinkle's original character designs for animation, and Go Zappa (Koihime Musō, NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them!) is both writing and overseeing the scripts. Lantis is producing the music.
The "loli pop comedy" light novel series follows Kyō Mekui, a high school student who tends to skip school due to a trauma in his past. Kyō secretly creates songs using vocal song synthesis software as his hobby. Three girls who just entered fifth grade — the crybaby Jun "Jun-tan" Gotō, the strong-willed Nozomi "Zomi" Momijidani, and the somewhat sleepy Sora "Kū" Kaneshiro who takes life at her own pace — email Kyō. These three girls, who were raised together like sisters since childhood, want Kyō to help them break into music in this "loli & pop symphony" story.
Aoyama and Tinkle launched the novel series in 2012 and Kadokawa published the seventh volume on April 9. The eighth volume will ship on October 8.
Aoyama and Tinkle's Ro-Kyu-Bu! light novel series inspired two television anime series in 2011 and 2013, and also inspired several video games.
