Aniplus-Asia announced that it will air a simulcast of D4DJ First Mix, the television anime for Bushiroad‘s D4DJ multimedia project. The company will announce the premiere date at a later time.
The anime will premiere in Japan on October 30. Ani-One Asia also announced on Wednesday that it will stream the anime in various regions, including regions in Southeast Asia.
Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Un-Go) is directing the anime at SANZIGEN Animation Studio (BanG Dream! franchise, Monster Strike the Animation, BBK/BRNK). Bushiroad is credited with the original work, and the company’s founder and president Takaaki Kidani is the executive producer. BanG Dream!‘s Ko Nakamura is credited with the original story. Masahiro Nakayama is the supervising producer, and Shigeru Saitō (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star) is the music producer. The project’s in-story “Happy Around!” DJ unit is performing the opening theme song for the anime.
Bushiroad acquired 8.2% of SANZIGEN Animation Studio in December.
Following BanG Dream! and Revue Starlight, D4DJ is Bushiroad‘s new DJ-themed mixed-media project. The project includes live DJ performances, anime, and games. The project incorporates new music as well as remixes of popular music.
Game developer Donuts is developing the D4DJ Groovy Mix rhythm game for mobile devices. The game is scheduled to launch on October 25.
