An all-new Ensemble Stars!! anime film is on the way to theaters in Japan on March 4, and the full trailer has debuted to show more of what’s to come. The feature has the idols of the series—which is based on Happy Elements’ male idol-themed games of the same name—visiting New York to take part in the Idol Film Festival, so check out some footage of Ensemble Stars!! -Road to Show!!- along with a sample of SCREEN10’s theme song, “Life is so Dramatic!!”

The idols and their respective voice cast members featured in the SCREEN10 unit include Aira Shiratori (VA: Kohei Amasaki), Kohaku Oukawa (Tasuku Kaito), Hinata Aoi (Soma Saito), Makoto Yuki (Showtaro Morikubo), Mao Isara (Yuki Kaji), Mayoi Ayase (Chiharu Shigematsu), Ritsu Sakuma (Daiki Yamashita), Izumi Sena (Masami Ito), Rei Sakuma (Toshiki Masuda), and Nagisa Ran (Junichi Suwabe).

The Ensemble Stars!! -Road to Show!!- anime film is being directed by Masakazu Hishida (KING OF PRISM -Shiny Seven Stars-), and the soundtrack with the theme song and more is set to launch shortly after the movie on March 10.


“Tougenkyo Guzou Ken (Shangri-la Idol Fist),” “Mayonaka no BUTLERS (Midnight Butlers),” and “La Mort,” the three films in which the Ensemble Square’s idols appeared, were nominated for the Idol Film Festival (IFF), an annual idol film festival held in New York. In order to attend the award ceremony, the idols who were chosen to represent the films headed to New York.

After participating in the film festival and reception party, the idols head out to various places in New York City to enjoy some sightseeing before the awards ceremony, but a suspicious shadow creeps up on them…
