Idols shine bright in front of their fans, but there is so much more that comes with the life of an idol! Learn more in Idoly Pride when it joins the Funimation Winter 2021 anime season lineup.
Series official synopsis: After a successful audition, high school student Kotono Nagase and her best friend move into a dorm with eight other aspiring idols. They quickly realize it takes more than cute choreography and cute outfits to reach the top—it will take blood, sweat, and tears to advance in the idol-ranking VENUS program, where the top spot is held by superstar Mana Nagase…who happens to be Kotono’s older sister.
Idoly Pride begins its simulcast on January 10. The series will stream on Funimation in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland, and on AnimeLab in Australia and New Zealand.
From studio Lerche (Assassination Classroom, Toilet-bound Hanako-kun) and director Yū Kinome, Idoly Pride stars Japanese voice actors Sayaka Kanda (Good Luck Girl, Sword Art Online the Movie -Ordinal Scale-) as Mana Nagase, Mirai Tachibana as Kotono Nagase, Mai Kanno (I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying) as Sakura Kawasaki and many, many more in its stacked lineup.
