This past Friday, Pony Canyon streamed the first promotional video for the upcoming anime adaptation of Nitroplus’s Super Sonico mascot. The anime, titled SoniAni -Super Sonico the Animation-, will be animated by studio WHITE FOX (Tears to Tiara, Katanagatari, Steins;Gate, Jormungand season one and two, Hataraku Maou-sama). The anime will air January 2014.
Super Sonico is credited with playing herself in the lead role and performing the opening theme song, “Beat Goes On!” (this theme will be her label debut). In the anime, Sonico is already a photoshoot model, game character, and a musician (being part of the girl band “Fastest Speed in Space”), even as she studies as a college student.
Sonico has inspired her own line of games (the PC visual novel SoniComi, the PS3 port More! SoniComi set to be released March 2014, and the 3DS game SoniPro set to be released sometime Winter 2014), figures, and merchandise. She is also set to appear in Namco Bandai’s SRPG Super Heroine Chronicle for the PS3 and Vita, which will be released February 2014.
