A unique and new idol group is headed your way! Just announced at FunimationCon 2020, Dropout Idol Fruit Tart is joining the Fall 2020 anime season lineup on Funimation!

The series, from studio feel. (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!, Dagashi Kashi) and KADOKAWA, follows a group of show business dropouts—rookie idol Sakura Ino, promising newcomer Midori Hemo, former child actor Sekino Roko, former model Maehara Nina and former musician Nukui Hayu—who all live in a dormitory together. 

But when it’s revealed that the dorm is set to be demolished, manager Kajino Hoho has a plan: Start a new idol group called Fruit Tart with the girls, and pay off a hefty 100-milliion yen debt.
