Idol group AKB48 will have their first television anime next spring, it has been revealed. The story will revolve around 9 young girls aiming to become “legendary idols,” modeled after the Top 8 selection in AKB48′s general elections. The voice actresses for the 9 protagonists will be chosen through audition from the approximately 200 girls in AKB48 and their related groups.

Kawamori Shoji of “Macross” fame wrote the original draft and is serving as general director. AKB48 producer Akimoto Yasushi is in charge of planning and supervising. Okada Mari (“Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai,” “Gosick,” “Fractale”) is handling the series composition and the script.

Other staff members include character designer Ebata Risa (“Macross Frontier”), director Hiraike Yoshimasa (“WORKING!!,” “Amagami SS”), and executive producer Otsuki Toshimichi (the “Evangelion” movies). Animation will be done by the studio Satelight.

The first round of audition for the voice actresses will narrow down the field of 200 to 30 candidates, to be announced through a special website in mid-November. The final selection will be done through a publicly held audition in Tokyo.

The 9 winning members will not only voice the characters in the anime series, but they will also sing the show’s theme song.

The series is planned to start airing next spring, though the show’s title and the broadcasting station have not yet been announced. A comic version based on the original draft is also being considered, to be published by Kodansha.

I really like this idea! Though I was expecting them to make a series more based on the members and not people based on the members... If you know what I mean. XD I really love the promo pic even if it's just a rough sketch. And I'm guessing that the 9 people will make an unit especially for the anime like Buono!? :D

Gogogogo Nakayan!!

They're only choosing 9 members out of over 200 members, but I think wota 4 and the few members whose dreams are to become seiyu will have a very great chance on passing the initial audition.

However what I don't get is what they're trying to plan to do with only 9 members...

^Well, with 9 members it'll already be the largest AKB48 subunit (unless you count whatever Team Z was). ^^; I'm thinking that the members participating won't be limited to that nine though, as it says that those nine will be the "senbatsu" of the seiyuu so that leads me to believe that members that didn't quite make the cut will voice the smaller roles.

So I'll start the senbatsu wishlists, lol:

1. Nakayan=> "Acchan"
2. Tanamin=> "Yuko"
3. Shawako=> "Yuki"
4. Airin=> "Mariko"
5. Lemon=> "Mayuyu"
6. Amina=> "Haruna"
7. Rabutan=> "Takamina"
8. Chiyuu=>" Tomochin"
9. Miichan=> Original Character (why Miichan? Just because I want her in everything of course :P )

The 9 girls, for whom the audition will be, are aiming to become "legendary idols". And these "legendary idols" are what is modeled after Top 8.

Internet killed common sense.

They have to give one of the parts to Mayuyu. She's one of the most appropriate members to pick for something like this.

Definitely gonna be interesting to see though, no matter who is picked :)

My wishlist still stands though. XD

You AKB fans are lucky to get an awesome staff like that working for this series. Kawamori is pretty much the most capable director working at the moment. Whatever he starts working on, he gives it 110% effort and his eye for visuals and talent in storytelling are among the greatest the industry has ever seen. If you want to get a hint of what Kawamori may be up to with this series, go check out the two Macross Frontier movies he worked on in the past few years. Itsuwari no Utahime was released in 2009 and the blu-ray release of Sayonara no Tsubasa came out only a week ago. Furthermore, Okada is a great writer and the other people mentioned already are considered to be among the most enthusiastic and skillful people working in animation today.

Right now it seems like this series might become one of the most legendary anime titles released in the past 10 days - it has potential to become really HUGE.

Ten days? Don't you negate your previous words with such sarcasm?

Oops. That's what I get for typing it up hastily in the morning. I meant 10 years.
