New Key Visual for “Idol Jihen” Anime

A new key visual for the upcoming Idol Jihen anime series, as well as the opening theme CD package design, have been released!

MyAnimeList describes the plot of the series as:

“Increasing income divide, creeping environmental pollution, unsolvable waste issues, childcare waiting lists being discussed without those concerned, repeated corruption… The government, smeared by vested interests, can’t do a thing against the many problems and sources of discontent. It’s in this situation, with Japan cornered with no way out, that idols rise up to save the day!

The Heroine Party, Sunlight Party, Starlight Party, Bishoujo Party, Wakaba Party, Subculture New Party, and SOS Party. From these seven idol political parties, the idols who have become National Diet members and representatives for each prefecture will smash through the sense of stagnation covering Japan using the power of song and dance! They’ll bring back the smiling faces of the people, and wrap Japan in a glittering aura!!”

The series will begin airing on January 8.

You can find the visuals after the break!

New PV for “Danmachi: Sword Oratoria” Anime

The first promotional video for Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Gaiden: Sword Oratoria) has been released! This side story focuses on Aiz Wallenstein and her party of fellow Loki Familia members.

MyAnimeList lists the synopsis as:

“Sword princess Aiz Wallenstein. Today, once again, the strongest female swordsman heads to the giant labyrinth known as the “Dungeon” along with her allies. On the 50th floor where mysteries and threats such as a decayed dragon’s corpse that crumbles to ash and an irregularity that creeps ever closer to the party loom, Aiz calls for the wind and heads deeper into the darkness of the Dungeon. Eventually, she finds herself meeting a boy for the first time. “Um, are you OK?” In the Labyrinth City of Orario, the contrasting stories of the boy and the girl intersect!”

The anime will premiere in April 2017.
