Coming This Fall: Star Mu

Today we’re going to cover High School Musical the Anime I mean the Shortform, Music, Slice-of-Life, anime Star Mu, also called High School Star Musical… yeah.

“The story involves a group of high school students at Ayana Academy, a school with music as its main focus. A trio of students are called Hanasakura-kai, designating the most talented from the music department. To get in, individuals must enter through a Star Frame class. The series tells the story of Yuuta Hoshiya, Tooru Nayuki, Kaito Tsukikage, Shou Tengeiji, and Shuu Kuga as they aim for a position in the musical department after being spotted by Ootori, one of the Hanasakura-kai members.” (Source)

Animated by C-Studio, (Dragonar Academy), and directed by Shunsuke Tada (Dragonar Academy, Kuroko no Basket, and Prince of Tennis).


One of the big selling points of this anime is the musical focus. Collaborating with people like Takeshi Masuda (Outbreak Company), Wataru Maeguchi (Hayate the Combat Butler), and Ken Arai (Parasyte).

The trailer doesn’t really get me pumped or excited for the show. The staff is somewhat promising, with Prince of Tennis and Kuroko no Basket, but then there’s… Dragonar Academy. Which doesn’t lend itself too much narrative credit.

High School Star Musical will begin airing October 5th, 2015 for the Fall 2015 season.
