The Multimedia Franchise “Gekidol” on its Official Website has announced that it will be releasing an original anime that will be centering around the three horsemen of entertainment, Theatre, Anime, and Idols. Although many idol projects are coming out every year, this definitely has a new touch to it and has definitely made me curious about what it brings to the table. The release of the Promotional Video for the Anime, which will be containing idols but in a post-apocalyptic world, is definitely going to be interesting, especially with all the happenings in 2020.
What Is Gekidol Anime All About?
The story is focused around the life of a young and aspiring girl, Seria Morino, who utilizes the technology of Theatrical Material System that enables 3D Holograms on Stage.
The story of the series occurs in a world where cities begin mysteriously disappearing, and five years into this Apocalyptic world, things have settled down a bit, and now Idols are looked upon as a glimmering hope in the darkness. This alone is enough to draw several parallels with the current situation with the COVID-19 Pandemic and other disasters that are destroying the planet. There’s not much information about the plot provided on the official website and what we could gather from the promotional video was definitely enough to spark interest in the upcoming Anime Series.
When Will The Anime Series “Gekidol” Air?
The Multimedia Anime Project “Gekidol” has been confirmed to premiere on the 5th of January 2021 and the 10th of January 2021. The Anime series is being produced by Hoods Entertainment and will be directed by Shigeru Ueda while Keiichiro Oehi is penning down the script for the anime. Kiyoshi Tateishi is handling the Character Designs.
Judging from the Promotional Video, the animation seems to be phenomenal and honestly something that I can’t wait for personally.
