Well… this news is certainly surprising. But hey, at least it’s news that FUNimation is picking up at least some of the shows that are starting this anime season. Today FUNimation announced that they will be simulcasting the Puchimas! -Petit Idolm@ster- web anime.
Considering Puchimas! has a new episode every weekday, new episodes will be provided Monday through Friday at Noon EST starting on January 4th. These episodes are only two or three minutes long and they put a new spin on the Idolm@ster world as the 765Pro idols start to live with miniature versions of themselves called “Puchidoru.” A Japanese promo for the show can be seen below and trust me, if you enjoyed the original IDOLM@STER series, this one is for you. If it isn’t however, don’t worry, FUNimation also hinted that they would be announcing more simulcasts tomorrow and next week.
