Crunchyroll Streams Angel's 3Piece! Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
Crunchyroll began streaming the first episode of the television anime of Sagu Aoyama's Tenshi no 3P! (Here Comes the Three Angels) light novels under the title Angel's 3Piece on Monday. The series will simulcast on Mondays at 8:30 a.m. EDT.
The "loli pop comedy" light novel series follows Kyō Mekui, a high school student who tends to skip school due to a trauma in his past. Kyō secretly creates songs using vocal song synthesis software as his hobby. Three girls who just entered fifth grade — the crybaby Jun "Jun-tan" Gotō, the strong-willed Nozomi "Zomi" Momijidani, and the somewhat sleepy Sora "Kū" Kaneshiro who takes life at her own pace — email Kyō. These three girls, who were raised together like sisters since childhood, want Kyō to help them break into music in this "loli & pop symphony" story.
Shinsuke Yanagi (Ro-Kyu-Bu! SS, And you thought there is never a girl online?) is directing the anime at anime studio project No.9. Takayuki Noguchi (Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Girls Beyond the Wasteland) is adapting Tinkle's original novel character designs for animation, and Go Zappa (Koihime Musō, NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them!) is both writing and overseeing the scripts. Lantis is producing the music.
Aoyama and Tinkle launched the novel series in 2012, and Kadokawa published the tenth volume on July 7. The duo's Ro-Kyu-Bu! light novel series inspired two television anime series in 2011 and 2013, and also inspired several video games. Yuzu Mizutani launched a manga adaptation of Tenshi no 3P! in May 2014. Omiya's Tenshi no 3P! no 3P!! spinoff manga launched in Dengeki Moeoh in 2013.
