posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for Bushiroad and Nelke Planning's Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight franchise announced on Sunday that production on a mini anime has been green-lit. The title of the new anime is Shōjo☆Konto All Starlight (Girl Comedy Skit All Starlight). The website asks fans to wait for more details, but teases slapstick comedy skits featuring the nine girls.
Sentai Filmworks licensed the franchise's earlier television anime, and it describes the story:
After receiving a mysterious invitation to audition for a coveted spot with, Starlight, a popular musical revue troupe, star-struck contestants begin honing their talents and competing against each other for a chance of a lifetime. Among the hopefuls are childhood friends, Karen and Hikari, who once promised each other that they would take the stage together. With each contender working tirelessly hard to win, it's the girls' passionate dedication to their lifelong dream that'll truly transform their performances as the curtains rise.
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 streamed the series on HIDIVE with English subtitles and an English dub.
Sora Goto and Kanata Nakamura launched Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight Overture, the first manga for the franchise, in Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine on January 30, and ended it on October 30. The manga's second compiled volume shipped on October 26.
