Following up on its initial tease last month, more info has arrived for Pony Canyon’s “Seiyuu×Hero×Music” project, PRELUDERS. In addition to the first teaser visual, a bunch of character visuals were revealed along with cast additions and info on the music release plans.


PRELUDERS is set in an era in which everyone has the power to become a hero, and they share their abilities on the video service Hero Cast, where viewers rate and react to them. A battle unfolds between young hero teams High Five and S-quad, who aim to take on criminal groups like Discord, who abuse these special abilities. 


The teaser visual features S-quad member Ko Kujikami (VA: Yuma Uchida) and High Five member Asuka Morito (Junya Enoki).
