Bandori! or BanG Dream is a musical-fiction anime series created by Takaaki Kidani who got the inspiration from the successful game by his own company called Love Live! School Idol Festival. No matter whom you ask, everyone will agree that one of the core reasons for this series’ success is its undeniably amazing choice of music. BanG Dream started off as a manga and developed into much more. The idea was that of the Bushiroad president Takaaki Kidani. His aim was to develop something purely based on music, hence he devised this project of an all-girls band manga that later turned into a chain of media productions of the story. Since its first release, the anime has been a huge hit, it’s the third season with the best performance from all three seasons. The idea behind this anime was to hire voice actresses who could actually play their own instruments and make a series out of the concept. The inclusion of different bands leads to a total of 7 bands that play as part of the series. The central band of girls called Poppin’Party is if you think about it, Poppin’Party is an actual band because they played together in the series, only that their representatives were some animated figures. Poppin’Party is what can be called the central band of the series who meet up with other bands namely – Afterglow, Pastel Palettes, Roselia, and Hello, Happy World! and The Third which was renamed as Raise A Suilen before joining the series.
BanG Dream Season 4 Release Date
Wish we could say that the release date is out or at least that the production house has announced confirmation for a Season 4, but as of now, no news has been given regarding this matter. Considering the successful first two seasons and an extremely successful third season, it is likely that the authorities will proceed to make a season 4. Some speculate that Season 4 will be announced soon given that the first three seasons were released at a faster rate than most amines of this type. We definitely wish to see this bubbly, cheerful and hopeful anime series on air again with more banging music which makes it so delightful to watch.
Some factors that make it a certainty that a season 4 will be made is the immense success of the previous season as mentioned before and the large amount of profit that every media of this anime is getting. The anime has its own video game and albums that have sold millions, earning a huge profit for the company. t is highly unlikely that the production house will try to break this chain of profits and web that they have made after some harsh initial struggles of making such a deviant and new concept.
