Things we learned from the Bang Dream! 5th Live

Bang Dream! 5th Live
The Bang Dream! 5th Live concert, held at the Makuhari Messe from the 12th to the 13th of May, 2018, is where everything's about to change in front of a massive audience, especially fans of Bushiroad's Bang Dream franchise because after they got swooned by Poppin' Party on the first day and Roselia on the second day, there has been a slew of big news happening in the world of the Bang Dream franchise so in case you missed it, here's what in store for them.

First and foremost, they've given us a teaser for a male band group calling themselves Argonavis with Shuta Morishima, Seiji Maeda, and Daisuke Hyuga taking charge to it. This new all-male band from the world of Bang Dream! will have their first live in July and that's pretty much all the info heard round the world so stay tuned for more.

In addition, the Bang Dream! anime series will return for Seasons 2 and 3 this next year. One by January 2019 and the latter by October 2019. The new seasons will be taken care by Sanzigen, replacing ISSEN and Xebec as the studio in charge of it. In addition to the new seasons, there's a new Girls Band Party PICO anime skits airing on July 5 during the course of the Bang Dream! TV variety show. Think of it like Puchimas or Cinderella Girls Gekijo but the skits will star the bands from the Bang Dream! Girls Band Party app game from Poppin' Party, Roselia, Afterglow, Pastel*Palettes, and Hello Happy World! Of course, we already know that the Pastel*Palettes are getting a spinoff anime soon so there's more to expect for Bang Dreamers worldwide.

Lastly, and the most important one, is who will be taking over the role of Roselia bassist Lisa Imai in the franchise. Late last year, Yurika Endo announced that she will be retiring from being a seiyuu after her final live show later in the summer due to health concerns, shocking fans on who will take her place on the Lisa Imai role and at the end of the second day of the Bang Dream 5th Live concert, they're happy to announced that the role of Lisa Imai will be handed over to (drumroll please, Ako)...Yuki Nakashima, also known as Yuuki Otokura from THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS. Yuki Nakashima will begin voicing the character soon so stay tuned. This situation is vaguely similar to what happened in THE IDOLM@STER franchise when the role of Yukiho Hagiwara, originally voiced by Yukari Ochiai until she left the franchise for security reasons, was handed over to Azumi Asakura.

Handover aside, much to the disgrace to Pokemon fans too many, Roselia will be having their fan meeting at the Culttz Kawasaki on Monday, the 17th of September, 2018, so if you're one of the yobs who like messing up field trips to the rocking sounds of Roselia, here's your chance to be part of it.

Anyway, that's pretty much about everything as announced at the recently concluded Bang Dream! 5th Live concert so which one are you excited about the most?
