Musical adapts anime's 1st season, uses 1st season's songs

The official Twitter account for the STARMYU anime series announced on Saturday that the anime series is getting a stage musical adaptation that will premiere in spring 2017. The musical will adapt the anime's first season and will include the songs from the first season. The anime's staff originally announced the musical at the Animate Girls Festival 2016 event in Tokyo on Saturday.

The 12-episode STARMYU television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2015. Funimation streamed the series as it aired, and it describes the story.

Ayana Academy: home of musical dreams and insane competition. New student Yuta Hoshitani dreams of being in show business, but to get there he'll have to gain acceptance from the Kao Kai (Cherry Blossom Flower Association), Ayana Academy's three highest ranking students. For Yuta and his friends to get into the music department, they'll have to get into the Star Frame class, which is taught by the Kao Kai members. Though the newcomers are struggling, they catch the interest of one of the Kao Kai members, which just might send them on the starlit journey they've been dreaming of!

Shunsuke Tada (Kuroko's Basketball, Prince of Tennis) directed the series at C-Station (Dragonar Academy), and Sayaka Harada was in charge of the series scripts. Asami Watanabe designed the characters, and Tadako (Arashi's "Love so sweet," "Monster") was responsible for the dance sequences.

The anime project also includes a two-part original video anime (OVA) project. The first OVA, which serves as episode 13 of the anime, shipped on July 27. The second OVA, which serves as episode 14 of the anime, shipped on September 21.

The anime will receive a second season that will also premiere in spring 2017.
