Aikatsu! Planet was the Aikatsu! idol franchise‘s first television project that combined animation, 3D CG, and live-action.

The story revolves around “Aikatsu Planet,” a world where anyone can assume the role of an avatar and become an adorably cute idol.

The tagline of the project is, “To become the ‘me’ I want to be, I enter the mirror.”

The project used anime and CG to depict the scenes in the “Aikatsu Planet” world, and it used live-action footage to depict Mao’s daily life.

BN Pictures was credited with the project’s development, original story, and production, and Bandai was credited with the original concept. Ryuichi Kimura served as both chief director and director, and Misuzu Chiba supervised the series scripts. Risa Miyadani designed the characters. Tohokushinsha Film Corporation produced the live-action footage. The characters Mao, Ruli, Kyōko, and Shiori sang the opening song “Bloomy*Smile,” and the new unit Starry Planet sang the theme song “Happy ∞ Ai”katsu.”
