The second season of BanG Dream wrapped up last spring and we also had the film that landed this past September out of Japan. With Sentai Filmworks having licensed the two seasons so far, it’s no surprise that Sentai Filmworks is confirming that they’ve licensed the third season as well. Home video release plans are for down the line but they’ll be working to get it streaming through various partners. Their area of rights includes the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Latin America and Central America. The new season premieres on January 23rd, 2020.
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 came out previously.
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).
