News about IDOLiSH7 getting an anime adaptation stirred up their fans earlier this year. Today, at a special event, the premiere date for the anime series was unveiled.
The anime is set to premiere in January 2018. Advanced screening will be held on November 2 (special event).
The first key visual is already out.
A short video was released with scenes from the anime.
For those that might be unfamiliar with the game, here’s a brief intro to each group.
IDOLiSH7 is a 7-person group consisting of Kensho Ono (center), Toshiki Masuda, Shirai Yusuke, Tsubasa Yonaga, KENN, Atsushi Abe and Takuya Eguchi. They are known for their bright and upbeat songs.
