Like always all pics are from the official twitters etc. In case you don’t have them, wanna check yourself or if I suddenly die and you wanna pick up publishing Pretty Rhythm news in English: Director’s Twitter, official goods twitter, CG Director Twitter, Matsuura Mai twitter, Yamahara Kazuhiro’s twitter (I think it is)
Protip: you can just check the director’s twitter as he retweets any important announcement from the others.
Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream Blurays announced
It was announced on September 6th. It’s two BD boxes, 30 000 Yen each(around 220€). First one will be released on December 12th, with episodes 1-26 on 4 discs. Second one will be released on March 13th 2015 with episodes 27-51 on another 4 discs.
I really like the blurays’ description on online shops:
“Naritai jibun ni Prism Jump!! Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, after three years, is finally on bluray!! With this you can now enjoy Aira and everyone’s story in high quality as many times as you want!! It’s an anime for little girls but it even makes adults cry!! The story will remain deeply in your heart!! You can learn about the important things in life with Pretty Rhythm!!”
It’ll also have the Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream Laugh Theater/Specials from the DVDs. Those are super hilarious and you should totally watch them if you haven’t yet. They’re funnier than every other ~3minute comedy anime ever since 3min anime became something common. Maybe except for Senyuu. Too bad they didn’t do ones for DMF and RL.
The BDs will also have audio commentaries of the staff and seiyuus on a few episodes. Also seems If you preorder the 1st box you can get a free ticket for the second christmas event(see below), along with different covers for the 3 smaller boxes containing each BD. Doesn’t seem like it has any bonuses in particular besides that.
They’ll reveal the boxart later. It’ll probably be new illustrations. Looking forward to them.
I was right about how they’d announce BDs soon. They’ll probably announce DMF BDs sometimes later too, in the same 2 boxes format. I’m not planning to buy them because I’m not rich or crazy. If someone ever rips them it would be cool if they include the audio commentaries. However, with everything they already said on Twitter, at the various events and in the three books, I don’t really think they have anything new left to say; Most of those audio commentaries will probably be just jokes and everyone reacting to the scenes. I’d still love to hear them anyway.
They did a small event the 7th of September for the release of the Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live Prism Boys Collection
Album got released the 3rd of September. Rapidly checked on Oricon and it seems to be selling well. It was on 23rd place the day of it’s release but then went up to 7th place the 4th of September, before falling the next day. Weekly ranking isn’t out yet.
Ad at Machida’s Tower Record.
Apparently some of the people who preordered it won a signed version with this poster. It was a lottery.
Maeno Tomoaki (Hiro), Kakihara Tetsuya (Kouji), and Masuda Toshiki (Kazuki) at the event.
That’s a bouquet offered to the staff by fans. Director also received this bag on the right. They put the bouquet at the entrance of Tatsunoko studio.
Some fan present at the event’s homemade bag.
Matsuura Mai(I almost wrote Matsuura Aya) selfmade a Jin and a Hiro tshirt. She gave the Jin one to the director, and gave the Hiro one to Yamahara Kazuhiro for his birthday. She hand painted them, so if they wash them it’ll wash away. They’re one of a kind in the world masterpiece so they said they won’t wear them.
Ito x Kouji postcard by ioko offered to the director. ioko is a huge fan of Rainbow Live and has been drawing tons of Ito x Kouji. You can find it here. There’s also some on his/her twitter but it’s locked so you’ll have to follow it.
UUUWOOOOOOH MY BODY WAS NOT READY FOR THIS. Just how gay OTR can get. It’s like the Prism Jumps. Right when you think they can’t outdo themselves, they still manage to do something even more amazing.
That poster will be included in this month’s Otomedia magazine, gets released the 10th of September. It’ll also have yet another interview of OTR. That’s like the fourth one now, not counting the guidebooks. They’re milking them so much. My theory that they decided to milk a boys band for RL because the female groups from AD and DMF didn’t sell seems more and more probable. Also they keep calling the album “OTR’s debut album” so there’s probably more to come. I really want a OTR special OVA with all three of them hanging together.
Also CG Director joked saying that their clothes was supposed to be in CG at first. I guess cuz it’s so fabulous you can’t hand draw it simply.
A dedicated(and really rich) fan on twitter posted his collection of all the Rainbow Live CDs along with their normal and special/limited/preorder covers.
New info about the PriPara christmas event
It’ll be the 13th of December at the Makuhari Messe international exhibition hall. They’re actually doing two events, lasting all day:
The PriPara Fest in Christmas which will be from 11am to 4pm at hall number 4. It’s something for little girls to enjoy, with a makeup corner, a costume rental corner, a karaoke corner, a goodies corner and a photo shoot corner. Basically a event for your cute little girl to become an idol the time of a day. It’ll also have an i☆Ris and Prizmmy live. Tickets need to be bought in advance. Pricing is 800 yen for children and 1800 yen for adults. So if parents and their two children go, it’ll be a total of 5200 yen, around 38€. I guess it’s not too pricey. Children also get to get a limited Purichike. Not that all of this matters since it’s not like the majority of the people reading this, myself included, can actually attend. If you’re reading my blog for a while you should know I like mentioning stuff like that anyway.
The second event is the PriPara & Pretty Rhythm Christmas Party, from 6pm to 7pm, in hall 5. Notice how the name went from PriPara chirstmas event to PriPara & Pretty Rhythm chirstmas event, so I’m getting even more hyped now about possible Pretty Rhythm OVA with PriPara CG or that the PriPara movie will be an actual crossover, or at least Saints focused. Tickets are 7800 yen each, around 60€. Just wow that’s expensive. Sasuga Avex san. Everyone attending gets a special Purichike(not just kids).
Along with Pretty Rhythm and PriPara staff, Seiyuus and singers people confirmed present so far are i☆Ris and Prizmmy☆ members, Hara Sayuri(Rizumu), Enoki Azusa (Mion), Yonezawa Madoka (Serena/Jae Eun), Akesaka Satomi (Kanon/Chae Kyoung), Ookubo Rumi(Mia) Katou Emiri(Naru), Uchida Maaya(Wakana), Shishido Rumi(Juné) and Itou Kanae (SonaKanaHyeNee). i☆Ris and Prizmmy☆ will do lives and the seiyuus and staff will do a talk show. The event is only one hour so the talk show will probably be short.
Enoki Azusa posted on her blog saying she’s looking forward to the event.
This sounds like so much 100%fun guaranteed. I wanna go so much. I really hope some guys on 2ch write a report about it like with the 1st xmas event.
Seems Matsuura Mai is also a fan of Kinnikuman. I need to watch that someday.
A fan on twitter is doing a Pretty Rhythm cafe with her/his class for her/his school festival the 20th and 21st of September.
Lastly, Pretty Rhythm pics Matsuura Mai drew since the last time I did a post.
