Sanzigen to replace ISSEN/XEBEC for upcoming new anime

The official website for the BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! smartphone game's "Band Story Chapter 2" event began streaming a music video clip for the band Roselia's song "Neo-Aspect" on Saturday. The clip was animated by SANZIGEN Animation Studio, the studio handling the anime's second and third seasons.

The BanG Dream! anime will premiere two more seasons by the SANZIGEN Animation Studio in January and October of 2019, respectively. The BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! game app is inspiring DMM.futureworks and Sanzigen's BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! ☆ Pico mini anime, which will premiere on July 5.

The original 13-episode BanG Dream! television anime from ISSEN and Xebec premiered in January 2017, and Anime Network Online and Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired in Japan. The Pastel Life spinoff anime began airing and streaming last week.

Sentai Filmworks will release the first season with English subtitles on home video on June 19, and it describes the story:

When she was a child, Kasumi Toyama (played by Poppin' Party's lead singer, Aimi) felt a heart-pounding thrill every time she gazed at the stars, and she's been looking without success for something that could inspire the same feeling ever since. One day, she comes across a star-shaped guitar in a rundown pawnshop and, for the first time, discovers the thrill she's been searching for. Kasumi becomes determined to form an all-girl band, and her search leads her to four like-minded souls: Saya, Arisa, Rimi, and Tae (all brought to life by the members of Poppin' Party). Does this band have what it takes to make their dreams of stardom come true?

Bushiroad launched the BanG Dream! multimedia project in January 2015, and the company formed the Poppin' Party band for the project in February 2015. The project's other bands include Happy World!, Pastel*Palettes, Afterglow, Roselia, and most recently, an all-male band. The band members consist of voice cast members who portray the characters in the story, and they play the same instruments as their characters.

The BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! smartphone game launched in Japan in March 2017, and an English version launched in April.
