The official Twitter account for ARP Backstage Pass, the television anime adaptation of the ARP (nominally an abbreviation for Artists Republic Production) dance vocal group, announced on Saturday that the anime will now air in January 2020. The anime was originally slated to air this year.
The Twitter account also announced on Wednesday that the show’s theme song by ARP is titled “Burn it up.” A special program on Tokyo MX on July 28 at 7:30 p.m. JST will reveal more information about the anime.
The ARP group holds live performances — featuring singing, dancing, and interactive talking with the audience — in real-time using the latest augmented-reality technology. The ikemen (handsome) group members include their de facto leader Shinji, the talented dancer León, and the members of the Rebel Cross duo (designer Daiya and composer/writer Rage).
ARP’s executive producer Akari Uchida once produced Konami‘s LovePlus and Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side game franchises before leaving Konami in 2015.
ARP mainly holds concerts in the winter and summer under a talent contract with Avex.
