"Pretty" series' new TV anime series is set to premiere on April 8
Takara Tommy Arts' official website for Kiratto Pri☆Chan, the latest installment of its "Pretty" arcade game/anime franchise, has posted a 30-second CM for its upcoming TV anime, narrated by one of the protagonist girls, Mirai Momoyama (CV: Koko Hayashi).
Following the three Pretty Rhythm series, Pripara and the ongoing Idol Time Pripara, Kiratto Pri☆Chan is set to premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliates on April 8. This is the second "Pretty All Friends" project for the "Pretty" series' 10th anniversary, in addition to the upcoming film PriPara & Kiratto Pri☆Chan ~Kirakira Memorial Live~ to be released in Japan on May 5, 2018.
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. With the support of their classmate Rinka Aoba (Nanami Atsugi) who serves as manager, they start
producing their own channel to promote themselves.
