The official Twitter account for KLab Games and Kadokawa's "Magic x Idol" mixed-media project Lapis Re:LiGHTs revealed a new promotional video on Saturday that highlights the in-franchise idol groups Sugar Pockets and LiGHTs.

Previous videos highlighted the idol groups supernova, Kono Hana wa Otome, IV KLORE and Sadistic★Candy.

The anime will premiere on July 4 at 10:00 p.m. on Tokyo MX and BS11.

20 cast members in six of the project's units perform the opening "Watashi-tachi no Startrail" (Our Startrail) as the group Lapis Re:LiGHTs Stars. One of the units, LiGHTs, performs the ending theme song "Planetarium." The single with both songs will ship on July 8.

The theme of the project is in its full title, Lapis Re:LiGHTs ~Kono Sekai no Idol wa Mahō ga Tsukaeru~ (The idols in this world can use magic). "Asa no Hajime" is writing the scenario, and U35 is designing the characters. Yoshitaka Murayama is collaborating on the worldview setting, and Zuji is providing concept art.

The anime will star:
