posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
ASMIK Ace began streaming four videos for ARP Backstage Pass, the television anime of the ARP (nominally an abbreviation for Artists Republic Production) dance vocal group, on Sunday. The videos preview the character songs for the main characters.
The show's characters include:
Kazuhiko Inoue will play the chairman, and Wataru Komada will play Haruomi Matsumoto.
The anime will premiere in January 2020. The anime was originally slated to air this year.
The show's theme song by ARP is titled "Burn it up."
The ARP group holds live performances — featuring singing, dancing, and interactive talking with the audience — in real-time using the latest augmented-reality technology. The ikemen (handsome) group members include their de facto leader Shinji, the talented dancer León, and the members of the Rebel Cross duo (designer Daiya and composer/writer Rage).
ARP's executive producer Akari Uchida once produced Konami's LovePlus and Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side game franchises before leaving Konami in 2015.
ARP mainly holds concerts in the winter and summer under a talent contract with Avex.
