With plans for a summer 2015 broadcast, the first blush details of the idol series Venus Project have been announced. The show is part of a multimedia idol project that’s on its way out to take Japanese fans by storm this summer. It comes from Galat and they’re looking at doing the whole range of products, from the anime to games, manga and more. There’s a PS Vita game set for the spring which will come out alongside a webmanga while the TV series in the summer is set to be twelve episodes, which includes six variety program episodes along with six anime episodes.
The cast announced so far includes:
Karen Takano: Ami Himesaki (member of LinQ)
Mitsuki Sarashina: Rui Tanabe

No production or creative team have been announced for the project yet.
Plot concept: In the near future, Japan has developed sophisticated digital and image technology. People are enthusiastic for a new type of entertainment called “FORMULA VENUS.” Abbreviated as “F-V,” it is a sorted live battle of the top idol performances based on the idols’ power, techniques, and developed experience. The story is about the drama that happens among the girls in VENUS PROJECT as they aim for the top by concentrating on difficult battles, passion, and friendship.
