Idolland PriPara Anime, Game App Delayed Until Summer

posted on by Alex Mateo
2 new idols teased

The official website of Idolland PriPara, the smartphone app based on TAKARA TOMY A.R.T.S and syn Sophia's PriPara franchise, announced on Monday that the app and its associated anime have been delayed until summer. The game app, which will stream the franchise's first new anime in over three years, was scheduled to launch this spring. The website also revealed the third teaser visual, which teases two new idols in silhouette:

The text on the left reads "OOOamariOOOOOOOmasu" with each O representing a blank, and the text on the right teases "OOOOOORockOO!!" The NonSugar special event "Yakusoku no Te e Peropita Desu ne" will reveal part of the visual on March 6. The event will also premiere a video titled "Chо̄ Saisoku-shite, Chо̄ Saisoku Idolland PriPara Senkо̄ Cut Chо̄ Kо̄kai!!" that will preview footage from the new project.

The "virtual idol life app" from developer syn Sophia lets users create their own custom characters in the PriPara theme park, where anyone can become an idol.

Makoto Moriwaki is returning from the various PriPara television anime series to direct the in-app anime at Tatsunoko Productions, and Michihiro Tsuchiya is also back to supervise the series scripts. In addition to the many returning staff members, Avex Pictures is once again producing the music.

The staff will announce more information about the app and anime every month.

The Pretty Series of projects began with syn Sophia's Pretty Rhythm: Mini Skirt arcade game in 2010. The game inspired four television anime series, as well as five anime films and the spinoff King of Prism franchise.

The sequel game PriPara (Prism Paradise) launched in 2014 and inspired four television anime series and four anime films. The last television series, Idol Time PriPara, aired from April 2017 to March 2018. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime. The crossover film PriPara & Kiratto Pri☆Chan: Kira Kira Memorial Live opened in May 2018.

Kiratto Pri☆Chan is the latest anime in the Pretty Series franchise, and the first anime season premiered in Japan in April 2018. The second season premiered in April 2019, and the third season premiered last April.
