Kiratto Pri☆Chan Spawns Virtual Musical for 5th Anniversary

posted on by Ken Iikura-Gross
Kiratto Pri☆Chan characters come together for special performance

Although the first idol anime series was arguably 1983's Magical Angel Creamy Mami, it wasn't until the 2010s when the genre really took off with series and franchises like Love Live!, Pretty Rhythm, and Tsukiuta., among many others. With modern idol anime comes a lot of multi-media projects. One of those projects was the recent Kiratto Pri☆Chan virtual musical, titled Virtual Musical High School! Kiratto Pri☆Chan: Doki Doki Nyugaku no Sadame (Enrollment Destiny) and Mirai no Sadame (Future Destiny).

The Kiratto Pri☆Chan musicals' X (formerly Twitter) account announced the virtual musical in early December 2023. The account noted that the musical would be split into two parts with the first part scheduled for February 10 and the second for March 9. A follow-up tweet revealed a crowdfunding campaign where fans could also “enroll” in the same high school as the characters from Kiratto Pri☆Chan was opened.

A little bit about High School! Kiratto Pri☆Chan

According to the virtual musicals' website, the story follows the characters of Kiratto Pri☆Chan as they enter Sadame no Sono High School. In the first part, Hajimari no Sadame, the characters meet the ruler of the school, Sadame Ginga. Sadame tells them that the school's purpose is to heighten the power of Pri Chan idols to change fate, “Sadame Power.” In the second part, Mirai no Sadame, the characters are brought to a space colony to participate in the school culture festival, the Universal Sadamemorial Carnival. But lurking in the shadows, someone is watching the girls.

The two-part virtual musical features the following characters from Pri☆Chan:

Along with the returning cast, two new members appeared in the two-part virtual musical: Rico Sasaki as Dia Another and Rina Honnizumi as Sadame Ginga. There is also a special guest appearance by Suzuko Mimori as Ange Shiatori.

For a fifth year anniversary project, the Kiratto Pri☆Chan virtual musical was ambitious. Hopefully the café will come to fruition soon, as fans pledged to the crowdfunding campaign to see it come to life.
