Tokyo Color Sonic!!: New 2D Music Project Featuring a Star-studded Cast

Tokyo Color Sonic

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 features a 10 main character cast, with characters split into 5 different “buddy” units of singer + songwriter. Until February 2022, the franchise only had 4 teams (8 main characters).

Tokyo Color Sonic counts with drama + music in its CDs and standalone drama CDs that dive deeper into the events in the story.

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

The cast

Tokyo Color Sonic has a star-studded cast, counting with 10 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 5 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.
