HIDIVE desribes the story:
No one said being a glamorous movie star was going to be easy. Luckily for Maya, she has the talent and dedication to help her achieve her goals of stardom. Encouraged by her mentor, a reclusive actress named Tsukikage, a mysterious admirer who leaves Maya purple roses and even a beautiful and talented rival, Ayumi, Maya begins to finetune her skills to captivate her audience. But will that be enough to turn her dreams into reality?
Suzue Miuchi launched the original manga in 1975, and it inspired a 1984 television anime series and a 2005-2006 anime remake, as well two live-action television series. There was also a three-part video series that started in 1998. Miuchi acknowledged in 2009 that she would end the manga "soon." The 50th compiled volume of the manga was delayed indefinitely in 2013, and the 49th volume was released in 2012.
The Flash anime studio DLE produced the first Glass Mask film, Glass no Kamen Desu ga the Movie Onna Spy no Koi! Murasaki no Bara wa Kiken na Kaori!? (It's Glass Mask But… the Movie: Female Spy's Love! The Purple Rose Has a Dangerous Scent!?), as well as the parody television anime Glass no Kamen Desu ga (It's Glass Mask But) and The Glass Mask Year 3 Class D. The Glass Mask Year 3 Class D also inspired a theatrical anime on July 22.
