The official website for ARP Backstage Pass, the forthcoming TV anime featuring four-member AR dance vocal group ARP, has announced that it is set to premiere on Tokyo MX and BS 11 on January 13, 2020.
ARP (AR Performers) is a virtual idol project produced by Osaka-based game developer YUKE’S. Renowned game director Akari Uchida (Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side, Love Plus) serves as the project’s general producer.
The unit ARP was formed by Shinji, Leon, and the two members of the in-unit Rebel Cross, Daiya and Rage, in 2016. They have signed to avex (both in the story and the real) and have performed mainly in their summer and winter concerts. All of the four members graduated from International School of Music (ISM)’s Yokohama school.
The upcoming TV anime ARP Backstage Pass focuses on the four members’ school life and traces of their past. Tetsuya Endoh (Hikaru no Go) is attached to direct at Dynamo Pictures.
