Series about students singing at academy premieres on Sunday

Funimation announced on Twitter on Friday that it will begin streaming ACTORS: Song Connection, the television anime based on EXIT TUNES' ACTORS CD project, in Japanese with English subtitles on Sunday. The anime will stream in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

Funimation describes the anime:

A Vocaloid x voice ACTORS collaboration, featuring songs from EXIT TUNES. Within a sprawling academic metropolis lies an exclusive academy where students are encouraged to join clubs such as singing and archaeology to earn points for recognition. The most important of these is the big singing contest where all contestants have to sing in front of the entire school!

The anime will premiere in Japan as ACTORS: Songs Connection on Tokyo MX, BS NTV, and AT-X on Sunday at 11:30 p.m.

Osamu Yamasaki (Hakuōki series, Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East both seasons) is directing the anime. Yukio Nagasaki (Love Live! School idol project, Love Live! Sunshine!!, Land of the Lustrous) is the sound director, and Asako Nishida (Love Live! School idol project, Land of the Lustrous) is designing the characters based on Meka's original character designs. Drive is animating the series, and EXIT TUNES is producing the music. Hideakira Kimura, Tomotaka Ōsumi, and Hiroaki Tsutsumi are composing the music.

The Sakutasuke unit will perform the opening theme song "Titania." Sakutasuke and the archeology club and singing club groups, will perform separate versions of the ending theme song "Inazuma Shock."

The story of the franchise centers on the everyday lives of students and teachers at the Private Amaka Academy, a school established by the the large university town group Slive Central.

As previously announced, Funimation will stream the following new, returning, and continuing series during the fall season:
