People Trying to Come for UtaPri's Money : ZEXCS Makes TV Anime of Idol Project Shōnen Hollywood



The anime ZEXCS (Diabolik Lovers, Cuticle Detective Inaba) and the music label Starchild Records announced on Friday that they are producing a television anime series inspired by Ikuyo Hashiguchi's mixed-media project Shōnen Hollywood. Shogakukan Bunko published Hashiguchi's original popular novel Shōnen Hollywood in July 2012.

The anime will tell an original story set 15 years after the novel's story. It takes place at a fictional theater called Hollywood Tokyo in Harajuku, where members of the idol group "Shonen Hollywood" develop their talents with diligent work and studying.

The cast includes (from left to right in the image above):

Ryota Ohsaka as Kakeru Kazama
Daiki Yamashita as Kira Saeki
Tetsuya Kakihara as Ikuma Amaki
Shouta Aoi as Daiki Tomii
Kensho Ono as Shun Maiyama

Hashiguchi herself is in charge of the series scripts, and Toshimasa Kuroyanagi (Say, "I Love You".) is directing the anime. Kei Tsuchiya (Aruvu Rezuru - Kikai Jikake no Yōsei-tachi) is designing the characters.

The anime will premiere in July. Before the broadcast, the staff will hold a production unveiling event at Tokyo's Nakano Sun Plaza on May 18.

The Shōnen Hollywood project already inspired a popular live-action production that Hashiguchi also created. The real-life candidate Taiga Fukazawa ("Tora-chan") of Shōnen Hollywood's Haru (Spring) Team announces the anime in a video, but vows to not be defeated by it:

I like shounen hollywood as a stage play because I love the actors but I don't think I will like the anime. ( The design is a bit flat??)
