An anime project based on idols will premiere in Summer 2015. It will consist 6 episodes (30 minutes each) as part of a project that also includes games, live concert, etc.

Plot Premise:

The story is set in Japan in the future, not too long from now. In this world, data devices and video technology have been progressing to new heights, and people are abuzz about a new form of entertainment — Formula Venus. In Formula Venus or "F-V," the chosen top idols battle in live performances with their willpower, skills, and all their experience gained.


The official site is live and up now (expect updates soon):

The cast currently includes:

    Sawako Hata (former member of SKE48, AKB0048's Suzuko Kanzaki)
    Riho Iida (Love Live!'s Rin Hoshizora)
    Marika Hayase (Tantei Kageki Milky Holmes TD's Dancing)


Also this is going to be 12 episodes:

The television series will actually be six anime episodes and six live-action variety episodes, each 30 minutes long. The anime's story will be set in the same world as the game's, but it will feature a new anime original protagonist, "an aspiring idol aiming to be Venus."

Well, that game show episode sure was basically a half hour long advertisement, wasn't it? Still, I thought it was more fun and entertaining than the first anime episode. The anime episode was, frankly, not all that great. The production and art quality was surprisingly low across the board on this one. As an idol fan, I'll keep watching it and hoping things improve but it's not a good sign that I'm looking forward to the next game show ep more than the next anime ep.

On a side note, the Vita game looks and sounds pretty good.

Talk about total domination by the game team. That's what happens when you get the hand mirror as a consumable item. This is all about marketing the game, and the anime is just a stepping stone to that.
