Re:Stage! Project About Middle School Idols Gets Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Amane Makino stars in project with novel, game app, concerts, CDs

The official website for Re:Stage!, Monthly Comptiq magazine and Pony Canyon's multimedia project about idol singers in middle school, announced on Sunday that an anime adaptation has been green-lit. The announcement was first made at the "Re:Stage! Prism☆LIVE!! ~2nd Stage~ Ready for Dream" event at Tokyo's Yamano Hall earlier that day. Although the announcement does not specify the anime's medium, the project team will reveal the "broadcast schedule, staff, and other details" later.

The story centers around the first-year student Mana Shikimiya (Amane Makino) as she pursues her dreams of winning at Prism Stage, the competition that determines the top middle-school idol.

The project has already spawned a novel serialized in Kadokawa's Monthly Comptiq magazine, a smartphone game app, concerts, events, and music CDs. In addition to the anime, Sunday's event announced that the project will hold a national tour next year with the main group KiRaRe as well as the other groups.

The smartphone app launched in Japan for Android in July 2017 and on iOS in August 2017. The novel by original creator team yoree. and illustrator Tsubasu Izumi launched in Monthly Comptiq in the August 2015 issue. Kadokawa published the second compiled volume in January 2017.
