New plans have been announced for the fourth Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ anime, revealed at the end of last Spring's Maji Love Revolution and slated for fall during January's MagiLOVELIVE 5th Stage event. Maki Fujioka (Wolf Girl and Black Prince), previously the animation director on the series, will now also handle character designs for Maji Love Legend Star. Sayaka Konno joins the team to work with Tomoko Konparu on series configuration.
You might remember that last Spring's Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love Revolution ended with rival group HE★VENS and a teaser for more anime to come. Social media reports from this weekend's "MagiLOVELIVE 5th Stage" event say that the fourth season of anime has been scheduled for fall 2016.
After Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love Revolution ended with Hikaru Midorikawa, Daisuke Ono, Tsubasa Yonaga, Yuma Uchida, Hidenori Takahashi, Ryohei Kimura, and Daiki Yamashita's rival group HE★VENS and a teaser for more anime to come, there was some concerned chatter about the format. Never fear! The series' Twitter account has confirmed that they have the go-ahead for a fourth TV anime. More after the jump.
