The is the second project for the "Pretty" series' 10th anniversary in addition to the previously reported "Pretty All Friends."
Kiratto Pri☆Chan is set in a world where girls can be "Pri☆Chan Idol" by producing their own streaming channels using "Pri☆Chan System." The story follows two girls in their first grade of junior high, Mirai Momoyama (CV: Koko Hayashi) and Emo Moegi (Miyu Kubota). Because of their sense of rivalry against the popular idol Anna Akagi in their school, they end up making their debut as Pri☆Chan Idol.
