Mina Ōsawa (Given, School Babysitters) is designing the characters. Liber Entertainment Inc. is credited with the original work, Ailedore Public Relations Department is credited as manufacturer, and Twin Engine is producing the series.

Liber Entertainment Inc. released the original "love rhythm adventure" game for iOS and Android in summer 2015. The game features 42 voice actors in the main story, performing original songs. In the game's story, a famous talent agency called Ailedore has created an academy called Etoile Vio School to train budding idols. Players play as both a teacher and producer for the students.

A new app titled I★CHU Étoile Stage will launch in spring 2020, after a delay from this fall. The original anime announcement had also listed the anime under the title I★CHU Étoile Stage.
