posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the The [email protected]: Shiny Colors browser game for smartphones revealed a new five-girl idol unit named Hōkago Climax Girls (After School Climax Girls) on Monday. The group members include:
Haruka Shiraishi as Chiyoko Sonoda, a friendly second-year high school student who loves chocolate
Hiyori Kono as Kaho Komiya, a tall, mature-looking sixth-year elementary school student who admires tokusatsu heroes
Mariko Nagai as Juri Saijo, a boyish second-year high school student with rough speech but a pure heart
Akiho Suzumoto as Natsuha Arisugawa, a second-year college student from a wealthy family
Bandai Namco Entertainment previously revealed three other units. Illumination Stars, a unit in the agency 283 Production. ("283" is pronounced "Tsubasa," a wordplay on the Japanese word for "wings."), is made of girls in their first year of high school, and the unit's tagline is, "Twinkling in the eyes, unlimited possibilities."
Reina Kondō as Hiori Kazano, a cool beauty with a stoic personality
Mayu Mineta as Meguru Hachimiya, a naive, friendly girl with a Japanese father and American mother
The L'Antica idol unit's tagline is "Turn the rusted key of destiny." The unit's members include:
Mizuki Yuina as Kiriko Yukoku, a silver-haired second-year high school student who has a mysterious air about her. Her ethereal atmosphere and her bandaged arms are her trademark. Although she speaks in few words, she has a kind-hearted personality.
Karin Isobe as Kogane Tsukioka, a 19-year-old woman brimming with confidence and positive attitude. She has a cute figure that attracts attention, but her clumsiness also often makes her stumble and fall when dancing.
Narumi Runa as Yuika Mitsumune, a free-spirited college freshman who is into many obscure subjects. She is pretty, goes with the flow, and immediately sociable even to people she has just met.
Anna Yamaki as Sakuya Shirase, a third-year high school student who goes to an all-girls school. She is generally good at sports, is an honors student, and has a model-like figure. She is popular with girls due to how she carries herself like a prince.
The Alstroemeria idol unit's tagline is "Flowers in full bloom, our theory of happiness." Its members include:
Ryōko Maekawa as Tenka Ōsaki, a second-year high school student and the older of the Ōsaki twins. She has been looking out for Amano since they were little. She is not good at socializing, and tends to embrace indoor hobbies, such as playing games and watching anime.
Noriko Shibasaki as Chiyuki Kuwayama, a 23-year-old woman with a memorable smile, and is often considered the older sister of the idols in the agency. Her maternal demeanor is one of her strongest charm points. She has a hobby of creating small accessories and trinkets.
The president of 283 Production is Tsutomu Amai, who may act like a "dandy" in his 40s, but has a no-nonsense personality.
Hibiku Yamamura will voice Hazuki Nanakusa, a 283 Production employee who may seem always sleepy but is multi-talented as she helps the idols with voice training, dance lessons, and makeup.
The overall theme song for the game is "Spread the Wings!!" by lyricist Saori Kodama and composer/arranger Akihiko Yamaguchi. Yōichi Sekine serves as the game's music producer at Lantis.
A tie-in four-panel manga also launched on the game's official website.
The game will be available on smartphones via what Bandai Namco Entertainment tentatively calls the "HTML5 New Platform."
