Become a star with CloverWorks new idol anime.
The co-production studio behind Spy x Family, CloverWorks, has released the new trailer for the upcoming anime UniteUp! The show follows character Akira Kiyose, who signs up with a K-pop-like talent agency called sMiLea Production to follow his dreams of becoming an idol.
After listening to Akira’s vocal performance on a video streaming site, sMiLea becomes aware of him, leading to her decision to explore the character to form the newest idol group, Protostar. This group will include new up and coming singers like Banri Naoe and Chihiro Isuzugawa.
Famous idol duo AneLa founded the production company to train aspiring idols like Akira and Chihiro. However, other groups will make their debut with sMiLea, such as Legit and Jaxx Jaxx.
