3rd Prism Nana OVA Episode Previewed in Music Video
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the Magical Suite Prism Nana OVA project began streaming a music video on Saturday for the third episode in the project. The video features the insert song "T・H・N・P (Tottemo Halloween Nana Party)." Voice actresses Suzuko Mimori (Itaru Washioka/Heat Nana), Asami Imai (Asuka Asagi/Earth Nana), and Eri Kitamura (Kotone Oribe/Aqua Nana) perform the song. The "hybrid music video" features the three voice actresses in person and also features anime sequences.
The video is available for streaming until October 31.
Other cast members in the OVA project include Yoshino Nanjou (Riino Hoesaki), Chika Anzai (Mako Hiiragi/Lightning Nana), and Daisy × Daisy (Hina).
The project will have seven episodes, and the director and the screenwriter will change between episodes. These episodes will utilize the "star system," where the same characters will star in each episode but the staff for each episode will have freedom in style and story.
The staff of the episodes so far includes:
- Episode 1: "Yume Kanaetai...!? Kibō no Advance (Zenpen)" (I Want to Make Your Dream Come True...!? Advance of Hope: First Part). Director Yukihiro Miyamoto, character designer Kazuya Shiotsuki, and scriptwriter Miku Ooshima.
- Episode 2: Hoshizora-hen" (Starry Sky Story). Director and scriptwriter Seiya Numata, character designer Rina Iwamoto.
- Episode 3: "Medal no Kuni no Halloween ~Noriko to Yōsei~" (Halloween in the Land of Medal ~Noriko and Fairy~). Director and scriptwriter Hajime Ohtani, character designer Etsuko Sumimoto.
Daisy × Daisy, who previously performed the song "Hoshizora Connection" for the project's seventh promotional video, performs music for the OVA.
SHAFT first announced the project with prototype Nendoroids at Comiket in 2012. The project previously spawned a series of pachislo (pachinko parlor slot) machines and a seven-part pilot promotional video series. The project's Facebook page announced in June 2015 that the project would get an OVA series.
Kantoku (The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.) is responsible for the original character designs. The story centers around three adolescent girls — seventh grader Kotone Oribe/Aqua Nana (voiced by Eri Kitamura), eighth grader Itaru Washioka/Heat Nana (Suzuko Mimori), and eighth grader Asuka Asagi/Earth Nana (Asami Imai) — from a future not too distant from our own time.
