Babymetal Anime Series Announced


The rapidly ascending popularity of J-metal idol group Babymetal has led to the announcement of an anime series featuring the group’s main 3 girls, bringing the group full circle in terms of creepy fanbases courted.

The idol group is collaborating with digital studio Blue Ribbon Content and Amuse USA to produce the original short series, which will also debut in the western hemisphere due to Babymetal’s frequent (and highly successful) visits there.

The anime will apparently feature the idol group being transferred to a magical world of heavy metal music that is being assaulted by some menace, immediately tasking the capable girls with saving the world from imminent doom.

The brief anime series will also feature brand new live action performances from Babymetal, though no air date or other distribution specifics have been mentioned yet.
