posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Marginal#4 Kiss Kara Tsukuru Big Bang, the television anime adaptation of Rejet and Idea Factory's Marginal#4 franchise, began streaming the anime's first full promotional video on Saturday. The video previews the opening theme song "WeMe!!!!" sung by the in-anime idol unit Marginal#4. The single for the opening song will ship on January 18.
The anime will premiere in January on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS11.
Marginal#4 is the name of a fictitious idol group under Rejet's fictional "Pythagoras Production" label. Other idol groups under the label include "Unicorn Jr.," and "Lagrange Point." Marginal#4 consists of four members:
KENN as L Nomura
Toshiki Masuda as Atom Kirihara
Naozumi Takahashi as Rui Aiba
Yuuto Suzuki as R Nomura
Other returning cast members from the franchise include:
Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Shy Makishima (Lagrange Point)
Genki Okawa as Kira Himuro (Lagrange Point)
Shouta Aoi as Tsubasa Shindō (Unicorn Jr.)
Chiharu Sawashiro as Alto Takimaru (Unicorn Jr.)
Toshiyuki Someya as Teruma Nakama (Unicorn Jr.)
The anime follows the Marginal#4 idol unit, who made their debut at Pythagoras Production on February 13. The members give their all for their fans in their idol activities, but they are also normal high school students. The anime will follow both their everyday lives as high school students and their lives as idols.
Kentarō Suzuki (episode director on The [email protected] franchise, Little Busters!) is directing the anime at J.C Staff. Masahiro Yokotani (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Re:Zero - Starting Life in Another World) is in charge of the series scripts, and Yoko Ito (Love Stage, Amanchu!) is designing the characters for animation based on Sō Kirishima's original character designs. MIKOTO is producing the theme song music, and Daisuke Iwasaki penned the lyrics. Asuka Sakai (Yuyushiki) is composing the soundtrack. Each episode of the anime will have a different musical act composed of cast members contributing its ending theme song.
The franchise already includes over a dozen singles, several albums, and drama CDs. Additionally, Rejet and Idea Factory's Otomate brand released the MARGINAL#4 Idol of Supernova PlayStation Vita otome game for female players in November 2014.
