The official website for the Wake Up, Girls! Shin Shou TV anime has been updated with another key visual! This visual depicts the seven group members happily performing in a live show together. Wake Up, Girls! Shin Shou will continue from where the Wake Up, Girls! story left off.

The synopsis for Wake Up, Girls! is listed below:

“On Christmas 2013, the band Wake Up, Girls plays their debut song to a small audience without much fanfare. After the concert, the group’s manager takes off with the money, leaving Green Leaves Entertainment on the verge of closure and the band without a future. Despite this tumultuous beginning, the girls get a second chance, thanks to a mysterious benefactor and a shady business proposal. From here it’s a rocky climb to the top, but it’s a climb the girls are ready to make. Wake Up, Girls! follows the internal and external struggles of being a small-time idol girl band, from finding and accepting gigs to competing in popularity against other pop bands.”

Wake Up, Girls! Shin Shou will begin airing on October 9.
