Hello! I am Kitahata, the editor-in-chief at MANGA.TOKYO. I live in Japan and turn press releases from Japanese companies into articles that are easy for those outside of Japan to understand. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
Magic-Kyun! Renaissance, the multimedia project by Pony Canyon, Sunrise, and Broccoli, has so far released video game software for PlayStation Vita, music CDs, and a TV anime.
ArtiSTARs, a vocal group made up by its voice cast members who are wearing the same costumes as the anime characters, appeared on stage when the opening video was projected. They sang the opening theme song ‘Magic-Kyun! No.1☆’ with synchronized dancing which put the show on blast. Immediately after their usual call-and-response, ‘Kyun kyun?’ and ‘Magic-Kyun!’ they performed its project theme song ‘Kimi ni Maji Kyun’ and the fans’ excitement filled the air at the venue.
They performed mainly songs from the TV anime series with each associated scene projected above the stage. The show recreated the Magic-Kyun world. The cast members choreographed and gave a lesson on how to dance ‘Magical Flower,’ the theme song for the video game for PlayStation Vita. The cast members and the fans sang and danced together!
Soon after the show had finished, the fans began calling for an encore. The fans were surprised by the video which depicted the anime characters sitting backstage and couldn’t stop cheering. The members of ArtiSTARs reappeared on stage as if they had stepped out from the video. They performed the ending theme song of the TV anime series, ‘Please Kiss My Heart,’ and other two songs. The show was a great success.
The night show on the 14th was recorded and the Blu-ray and DVD will be released on 20 September 2017. Together with a special photo booklet bonus, you can re-experience the excitement of the show. Their details will be announced on the official website!
