The official website for the television anime of Kumiko Saiki’s Kageki Shoujo!! manga revealed on Tuesday that the anime will premiere on July 3.
Seven Seas licensed the manga for the English market and describes the plot as-
Ever since she was a little girl, Sarasa has wanted to play the role of Oscar as part of the Kouka Acting Troupe, an all-female acting troupe similar to the Takarazuka Revue. But before she can do that, she has to attend two years at the Kouka School of Musical and Theatrical Arts. As Sarasa practices singing, dancing, and acting, she grows closer to the other girls in her year, including her roommate, the stoic former J-idol, Ai. Though Sarasa is great at making friends, her outspoken nature and grand ambitions earn her lots of enemies as well. Can Sarasa keep her upbeat attitude and achieve her dream of stardom?
Sayaka Senbongi and Yumiri Hanamori star as Sarasa Watanabse and Ai Narata, respectively. In addition, Hiroki Nanami, Sumire Uesaka, You Taichi, Riko Sasaki, Satsumi, and Risae Matsuda also star in the series.
Kumiko Saiki released an original manga series called Kageki Shoujo! from 2012 to 2014 for Shueisha’s Jump Kai magazine, and ended the original serialization after the magazine ceased publication in October 2014.
After that, Nozomi Saiki began work on a sequel to the manga called “Kageki Shoujo!!” in 2015. Last year, the manga was nominated for Best Shoujo Manga in the 44th Kodansha Award. Shueisha published the original manga in two volumes, but re-released the series in one compiled volume in March 2019 with the title Kageki Shoujo!! Season Zero. This is the volume that Seven Seas Entertainment released in English under the title Kageki Shoujo!! The Curtain Rises.
