New PriPara anime premiered on April 4

The official website for the PriPara franchise revealed two characters on Sunday for Idol Time PriPara, the newest television anime series in the franchise.

Azusa Satou as Falala, a girl who sleeps within the clock tower of Paparajuku. Once in a while, she wakes up to play the harp. She appears only during Super Idol Time to grant rare coords. Punicorn and the other mascots seem to know her well.

Tomoyo Kurosawa as Galala, a mysterious girl who looks very similar to Falala. She seems to be connected to the reason for why Falala sleeps for so long.

The anime premiered on April 4.

The story focuses on Yui, a girl who lives in the town of Paparajuku, and who dreams of being an idol, even if she realizes that being an idol is next to impossible for her. Her friends often remark on how much she dreams about it. But then, the PriPara idol theme park opens in her town, and an idol named Laala is coming to town from Parajuku, which only makes Yui dream even bigger. The new PriPara theme park has been updated with new concepts. However, due to a system error, Laala is no longer able to PriPara Change.

The series has the keyword of "yume kawa," short for "yume kawaii" (dreamy cute), a contemporary real-life fashion look that emphasizes colorful hair and dreamy looks. The protagonist Yui is described as a "yume kawa" girl. An additional keyword for the series is "time," as the series introduced the new "Idol Time" system.

Makoto Moriwaki (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Onegai My Melody) returned from the previous series and is directing the new series at Tatsunoko and Dongwoo A&E.
