Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it is streaming ARP Backstage Pass, the television anime of the ARP (nominally an abbreviation for Artists Republic Production) dance vocal group. The first episode debuted on Monday in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East.
The show premiered on Tokyo MX1 on Monday, and it will have 11 episodes.
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 mainly hold concerts in the winter and summer under a talent contract with Avex.
