The second season of BanG Dream has wrapped up and we knew previously that more was coming as a third season was announced that has a January 2020 debut. The other piece of the puzzle that was announced was the September 13th, 2019 FILM LIVE event that will be happening. They’ve opened a separate section to promote that on their site here. With that just a few weeks away, the official site has now dropped a new 30-second teaser for the project to get fans in the groove for it.
Check out our review of the first season.
These seasons will have Sanzigen handling the animation production for both of the seasons. They’re also working with DMM futureworks to produce the mini web series BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! ☆ Pico which you can see below.
The first season of the project was directed by Atsushi Ootsuki based on the series composition from Yuniko Ayana. Natsuko Nita adapted the original character designs done by Hitowa Issen and Xebec handled the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes Aimi (Aimi Terakawa) as Kasumi Toyama, Ayasa Itou as Arisa Ichigaya, Rimi Nishimoto as Rimi Ushigome, Sae Oozuka as Tae Hanazono and Ayaka Ohashi as Saaya Yamabuki.
Plot Concept: The story follows Kasumi Toyama (played by Poppin’ Party’s lead singer, Aimi) when her life changes on the day she finds a star-shaped guitar. Determined to form an all-girl band, her search leads her to four like-minded souls: Saya, Arisa, Rimi, and Tae (all brought to life by the members of Poppin’ Party).
