Upcoming TV anime Kageki Shojo!! finally entered stage right with its first teaser trailer being released today. Alongside the trailer, the musical theater anime website updated with a special sub-website for the fictional in-universe school’s 100th anniversary, complete with the school’s song!
While no date for the Kageki Shojo!! TV anime has been announced as of yet, we do know that it’s being produced at PINE JAM by director Kazuhiro Yoneda, both having worked together on Hozuki’s Coolheadedness. The series is adapting Kumiko Saiki’s manga series, which is available from Seven Seas Entertainment as Kageki Shojo!! The Curtain Rises, describing it as such:
Like the Takarazuka Revue, the young women who go to the Kouka School of Musical and Theatrical Arts play all the parts of musical theater, be they female or male. Narada Ai is a jaded former idol performing female roles—her roommate, playing male roles, is bright-eyed country girl Watanabe Sarasa. From the school to the stage to the rest of their lives, there is no challenge these young women can’t face with their passion for performance. Also known as Kageki Shoujo!! Season Zero in Japan, this recent re-release of the original two-volume series for the franchise is packaged in one updated and beautiful omnibus.
