BUSHIROAD’s smash-hit multimedia franchise returns for a second anime season! Kasumi and the rest of Poppin’Party may have achieved their goal, but it turns out they were just at the starting line. Performing is a lot of work, and, of course, they’re not the only band in town! Do they have what it takes to reach true musical stardom?

The new season will not only feature Poppin’Party, but will also feature bands shown in the BanG Dream! Girls Band Party mobile game. This includes the following bands: Roselia, Afterglow, Pastel*Palettes, and Hello, Happy World! RAISE A SUILEN, formerly known as THE THIRD(TBD), will also make an appearance in the show.

Are you ready to continue hanging out with Kasumi and all of her friends?
