Yuka Shibata to Direct Idolm@ster Ep. 17

The new studio co-founded by Hiroyuki Imaishi, Masahiko Outsuka and Kazuya Masumoto “Trigger” has announed that its first subcontract for an entire episode creation has been signed. It is Idolm@ster’s 17 episode. The storyboard will be done by Yuka Shibata (Gurren Lagann), supervisor of the animation process will be Sushio (One Piece, Steamboy).

The studio has already worked on the Idolm@ster episode 15, but it was not a complete subcontract project, but just partial.


Let’s all wish a strong and fortunate position for the new studio and many more projects to come.
