The team is pushing back the fourth episode of the television anime of Sony Music’s “next dimensional idol project,” UniteUp!, to February 11 owing to the impact of COVID-19 on the production schedule, according to the website for the programme. The anime will instead show two special programmes on January 28 and February 4 in place of the third episode, which aired on Saturday.
Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs, and it had its Japanese debut on January 7.
According to Crunchyroll, the series is:
I’m going to be a hero, right?
High school student Akira Kiyose enjoys singing.
His tracks were uploaded to a video sharing website under the stage name “KIKUNOYU,” an online vocalist.
He is eventually discovered by the production company “sMiLea Production” when they hear him sing.
After abruptly retiring, the famed idol duet “Anela” founded the agency to support aspiring stars.
Akira establishes a group with fellow scouts Banri Naoe and Chihiro Isuzugawa.
The three internet singers want to make their idol debut with their own ideas and sentiments by drawing inspiration from the idols “LEGIT” and “JAXX/JAXX,” who are also members of the same agency.
The anime is being directed by Shin’ichir Ushijima (I want to eat your pancreas) at the CloverWorks animation studio. The series scripts are being overseen by Rino Yamazaki (Akebi’s Sailor Uniform, Shadows House, Spy Family). Along with Asami Komatsu and Yurie Hama, Majiro (22/7), who is the principal animation director, is creating the characters. The soundtrack is being created by Yuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia, Haikyu!!).
“Unite up!” the show’s anthem is performed by the cast.
In December 2021, Sony Music began the YouTube concept to highlight diverse musicians and “hidden gems.”
