Momoyo Koyama, Suzuko Mimori star in multimedia project about girls aiming for the stage

Bushiroad opened a website on Sunday to reveal its newest project, Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight. The project has both a musical and a television anime in the works. Nelke Planning is collaborating with Bushiroad on the project.

The project stars:

Momoyo Koyama as Karen Aijō

Suzuko Mimori as Hikari Kagura

Maho Tomita as Maya Tendō

Hinata Satō as Junna Hoshimi

Haruki Iwata as Mahiru Tsuyuzaki

Moeka Koizumi as Nana Daiba

Aina Aiba as Claudine Saijō

Teru Ikuta as Futaba Isuruzaki

Ayasa Itō as Kaoruko Hanayagi

Tomohiro Furukawa (unit director for Yuri Kuma Arashi, Brothers Conflict) is directing the anime at Kinema Citrus. Tatsuto Higuchi (CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon, Schwarzes Marken) is handling the series composition, and Hiroyuki Saita (Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear, My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) is designing the characters.

The franchise centers on "Starlight" — the song and dance revue troupe loved throughout the world. Karen and Hikari make a promise with each other when they're young that one day they'll stand on that stage together. Time passes, and now the girls are 16 years old. Karen is very enthusiastic about the lessons she takes every day, holding her promise close to her heart. Hikari has transferred schools and is now away from Karen. But the cogs of fate turn, and the two are destined to meet again. The girls and other "Stage Girls" will compete in a mysterious audition process to gain acceptance into the revue.

The "2.5 dimension musical and live concert" will star the same cast as the anime. The musical will have five performances between September 22-24 at the AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo.
