The staff also revealed a new teaser visual for the new anime.
From the looks of things, this new anime will follow the 3-member group, Dramatic Stars. Teru Tendo, Kaoru Sakuraba, and Tsubasa Kashiwagi comprise the trio, and their seiyuu will be appearing on a live program to announce more details about the anime. Sougo Nakamura voices Teru, while Yuuma Uchida voices Kaoru. Finally, Taku Yashiro voices Tsubasa.
Nico Nico Douga will be streaming the program live, so better expect more announcements about the new SideM anime. They also opened a new official website for the anime adaptation.
Much like Cinderella Girls and Million Live, SideM is based on a social game for smartphones. However, instead of the usual female idols, it follows male idols. So, who do you think will be featured in the anime aside from Dramatic Stars? For one thing, fans are really excited for this one!
