Kuma-Jet's in-game manga already inspired 13-episode season in spring

Production on a second season based on Bandai Namco Entertainment and Kuma-Jet's The [email protected] Cinderella Girls Gekijō (The [email protected] Cinderella Girls Theater) manga has been green-lit for an October premiere on the Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and BS11 television channels. A promotional video within The [email protected] Cinderella Girls game app made the announcement on Sunday. (Note: The Youtube video on the anime's website is region-blocked in the United States, Australia, South Korea, Mexico, and New Zealand.)


The first 13-episode anime season premiered in Japan on April 4. Each episode is five minutes long. Daisuki is streaming the series outside of Japan.

The anime stars:

  • Ayaka Ohashi as Uzuki Shimamura
  • Ayaka Fukuhara as Rin Shibuya
  • Sayuri Hara as Mio Honda
  • Ruriko Aoki as Riina Tada
  • Hiromi Igarashi as Anzu Futaba
  • Sumire Uesaka as Anastasia
  • Maaya Uchida as Ranko Kanzaki


Mankyū (Donyatsu, DD Fist of the North Star, Mobile Suit Gundam-san) directed the anime at the studio Gathering, where he also worked on the [email protected] net anime adaptation of the Puchimas! -Petit [email protected] manga. "BanNam" (Bandai Namco) is credited with the original work, and Kuma-Jet is credited with the anime's original character designs.

The [email protected] Cinderella Girls Gekijō five-panel manga is irregularly serialized in The [email protected] Cinderella Girls social mobile game app itself, often as a tie-in to game events and other media projects in the franchise. The "cute, comical" manga follows the idols' "real" daily life that can only be found in these panels. Kadokawa's ASCII Media Works imprint published the first compiled book volume in January 2015, and the sixth volume shipped on March 27.

The manga already inspired a mini-drama on the franchise's official streamed radio program, and an anime short that debuted in November.
