Angel's 3Piece adapts light novel series by Ro-Kyu-Bu! author

The November issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine revealed on Saturday that Sora Goto and Kanata Nakamura's Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight Overture manga and Yuzu Mizutani's Tenshi no 3P! (Here comes the three angels) manga will both end in the magazine's December issue on October 30.

Sora Goto is drawing the Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight Overture manga and Kanata Nakamura is in charge of the script. Goto and Nakamura launched the manga based on Bushiroad and Nelke Planning's Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight franchise on January 30. The manga's second compiled volume will ship on October 26.

Bushiroad announced the franchise in April 2017 with a stage musical and television anime project. The musical Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight The LIVE, billed as a "2.5 dimension musical and live concert," ran in Tokyo in September 2017. The 12-episode television anime series premiered on July 12. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the anime and is streaming the series on HIDIVE with English subtitles and an English dub.

The franchise centers on "Starlight" — the song and dance revue troupe loved throughout the world. Karen and Hikari make a promise with each other when they're young that one day they'll stand on that stage together. Time passes, and now the girls are 16 years old. Karen is very enthusiastic about the lessons she takes every day, holding her promise close to her heart. Hikari has transferred schools and is now away from Karen. But the cogs of fate turn, and the two are destined to meet again. The girls and other "Stage Girls" will compete in a mysterious audition process to gain acceptance into the revue.

Mizutani launched the Tenshi no 3P! manga adaptation of the Here comes the three angels light novel series by the Ro-Kyu-Bu! team of author Sagu Aoyama and illustrator Tinkle in Dengeki G's Comic in May 2014. Kadokawa published the manga's seventh compiled volume on July 10.

The "loli pop comedy" light novel series follows Kyō Mekui, a high school student who tends to skip school due to a trauma in his past. Kyō secretly creates songs using vocal song synthesis software as his hobby. Three girls who just entered fifth grade — the crybaby Jun "Jun-tan" Gotō, the strong-willed Nozomi "Zomi" Momijidani, and the somewhat sleepy Sora "Kū" Kaneshiro who takes life at her own pace — email Kyō. These three girls, who were raised together like sisters since childhood, want Kyō to help them break into music in this "loli & pop symphony" story.

Aoyama and Tinkle launched the novel series in 2012, and Kadokawa published the 11th novel on February 10.

The novels inspired a 12-episode television anime adaptation that premiered in July 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired under the title Angel's 3Piece.
