Popin Q is an original anime movie produced by Toei Animation in commemoration of its 60th anniversary.
The company has been a little less than generous with the amount of information it releases over time, but that practice has attracted a lot of attention.
The release date has been announced!
Manga.Tokyo found out that the movie is going to be released throughout Japan on December 23!
The movie is about five troubled junior high-school girls who create a strong bond while struggling with adolescence. The voice cast members to play these five attractive heroines will be Asami Seto, Shiori Izawa, Atsumi Tanezaki, Aki Ozawa, and Tomoyo Kurosawa. The movie has an interesting combination of music and dance which gives the dramatic story a unique flavor. The direction is handled by Naoki Miyahara who has worked on numerous dance-related anime motions in the Pretty Cure series and the character draft is handled by Kouhaku Kuroboshi who is best known for the TV anime World Conquest Zvezda Plot. It seems like an interesting movie infused with Toei Animation’s vigorously cultivated technology as well as its outstanding creativity.
