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 Starlightplans to have the same cast for both the anime and the musical!
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.
Referring to the main cast as ‘Stars’ is surely justified, seeing how they suddenly became active in different work fields: like voice acting, stage acting, idol, and more. Part of the main cast are Momoya Koyama and Suzuko Mimori, who will be voicing the two main characters. Koyama has already portrayed Sailor Mercury in the Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon musical and will portray the character Karen Aijou in this series. Suzuko Mimori, who has experience as a voice actress in many anime and got to perform at the Nippon Budokan as a singer, will voice Hikari Kagura.
The staff is also top-notch. The director is Tomohiro Furukawa (Yuri Kuma Arashi), the series compositor is Tatsuto Higuchi (Cross Ange Rondo of Angel and Dragon) and character designer is Hiroyuki Saita (Kumamiko). The animation production will be headed by Kinema Citrus. The musical will open its curtains in September 2017. It is considered the birth of a new form of live entertainment, incorporating the anime into the show, so fans shouldn’t miss it!
