At the "Argonavis LIVE 2021 -Kitto Bokura wa-" concert held in Hakodate last night, Bushiroad announced new information about its boy band project ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream!, including the change of its name to from ARGONAVIS.
As its title suggests, ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream! was originally launched in May 2018 as a spin-off project to Bushiroad's girl band-themed mixed-media project BanG Dream! Following the manga and novel, its 13-episode TV anime was aired in Japan from April to July 2020. The TV anime's compilation film ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream! Ryusei no Obligato (Meteoric Obligato) was released in Japan last Friday, November 19, and all-new feature film has been in the works for a release in the summer of 2022.
With "BanG Dream!" no longer in the title, the project is expected to become independent and go its own way.
