Tokyo Color Sonic!!: new 2D music project counting with a star-studded cast

And 2021 keeps on giving! A new 2D music franchise hops on stage. A big welcome to the star-studded Tokyo Color Sonic franchise.

Introduction

Tokyo Color Sonic is the name of the mixed-media franchise created by sprout and counting with character designs by the popular illustrator Ryo Fujiwara.

This franchise counts with a 8 character cast, with characters split into 4 different “buddy” units of singer + songwriter.

Tokyo Color Sonic is going to count with drama + music in its CDs.

The announcement event is available to watch for free on YouTube.

The cast

Tokyo Color Sonic has a star-studded cast, counting with 8 main characters voiced by some of the most experienced male seiyuu when it comes to 2D music projects.

Tokyo Color Sonic

At the core of Tokyo Color Sonic is a “buddying” format, something that leads to the 8 characters pairing up, thus creating 4 different teams of singer + songwriter.

Due to the members of Tokyo Color Sonic being singers, songwriters, and sound engineers, some characters (and thus, seiyuu) may not sing for some CD releases.

Team 1

Team 1 counts with the face of the project Arashi Komiyama (CV: Shoya Chiba) and Sora Kirishima (CV: Yuto Uemura).

Arashi is a vocal and Sora is a songwriter.

Below are voice samples for both characters.

Iori is a vocal and Haruhi is a songwriter.
