The “Minna de Kiratto Pretty Live 2018” event at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on Sunday featured 25 main cast members from the PriPara, Idol Time PriPara, and Kiratto Pri☆Chan franchises. The event was the biggest live event so far fo the Pretty Series idol franchise.
Kiratto Pri☆Chan premiered in Japan on April 8 as the latest anime series in the Pretty Series franchise, and is ongoing.
The anime has video uploading and streaming sites as a central focus, and once again has themes of singing, dancing, fashion, and friendship. The series centers on two first-year middle school girls named Mirai Momoyama and Emo Moegi, two aspiring idols who decide to use the “Pri☆Chan System,” a system used by famous people and companies to broadcast content. Like many girls starting their own channels and uploading content, the pair decide to become their own producers, starting their own channel in an attempt to become Pri☆Chan idols.
