Expanded manga version of initial stories of 5 protagonists debuted in 2015

Malaysian publisher Gempak Starz announced on Thursday that it has licensed Ren Hidō's Akademi Bintang Muzikal: Star-Myu, the manga adaptation of the STARMYU franchise.

Gempak Starz describes the manga:

Hoshitani Yuuta is a new student at Ayanagi Academy, a high-performance music high school, in order to follow in the footsteps of a high school student whose performance he had admired in his middle school days.

In his first days, he befriends four students: Nayuki Tooru, Tengenji Kakeru, Tsukigami Kaito, and Kuuga Shuu. When they meet, they start a new chapter in their musical life!

The first meeting and encounter of each member is expanded and modified in this new portrayal of STAR-MYU!

Hidō published the manga in Kadokawa's Monthly Sylph magazine in 2015. Kadokawa published one compiled book volume for the manga. Hidō also published another STARMYU manga titled STARMYU: Stardust's Dream in the magazine from April 2016 to May 2017. Kadokawa published two compiled book volumes for the manga.

The first 12-episode STARMYU television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2015. The anime's second 12-episode anime season premiered in April 2017. The franchise will receive a new OVA in October, as well as a third season of the television anime in 2019.

The anime project also includes a two-part original video anime (OVA) project. The first OVA, which serves as episode 13 of the anime, shipped in July 2016. The second OVA, which serves as episode 14 of the anime, shipped in September 2016.

The anime's first stage musical adapted the anime's first season, and ran in Tokyo and Osaka in April 2016. A spinoff musical will run on April 27-28. The franchise is getting a separate stage musical project that will debut in July.
