No announcements for the rumored "Pripaland" project
It was officially announced at the "PriPara & Kiratto Pri☆Chan Winter LIVE 2019" concert event held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba prefecture on December 15 that the TV anime Kiratto Pri☆Chan will enter its third season from April 2020.
Then the anime's official Twitter posted a visual for the new season introducing the three members of its main idol unit Miracle Kiratts: Mirai Momoyama, Emo Moegi, and Rinka Aoba in their new costumes, as well as a silhouette of a mysterious idol character. Further details of the highly-anticipated new season is scheduled to be revealed in January 2020.
Meanwhile, despite the fans' expectation, there were no announcements for the rumored "Pripaland" project (its trademark was already registered by Takara Tommy Arts in September) at the event.
Following the very successful PriPara series and its direct sequel Idol Time PriPara, the sixth installment of the Pretty TV anime series, Kiratto Pri☆Chan has been aired on TV Tokyo and its affiliates in Japan since April 2018. Its story is set in a world where girls can be "Pri☆Chan Idol" by producing their own streaming channels using "Pri☆Chan System."
