Shojo Kageki Revue Starlight

Summer 2018
Also Known As:
少女☆歌劇レヴュースタァライト (Japanese)
Young Girl Opera Revue Starlight (lit.)
Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight (romanization)

At the center of the story are nine girls who are attending a prestigious music school.
Each of them receives a mysterious invitation to an audition that could make all their wishes and dreams come true. And with that, their own version of battle royale begins.
Referring to the main cast as ‘Stars’ is surely justified, seeing how they suddenly became active in different work fields at one time, like voice acting, stage acting, idol actives and more.


This new project between Bushiroad and Nelke Planning links ‘Musicals’ and ‘Anime’ and hopes to bring a new kind of entertainment to the otaku world. Shojo Kageki Revue Starlight plans to have the same cast for both the anime and the musical.
