The BanG Dream! production team announced on their Twitter account that the band Morfonica will be getting their own animated project later this summer. The announcement did not reveal whether the project would be an anime television series or film. 

Morfonica was formed in 2020 as the fourth band in Bushiroad’s BanG Dream! franchise. The group primarily consists of five first-year students from Tsukinomori Girls High School — a prestigious school for elite high-class girls. Mashiro Kurata (voiced by Amane Shindou) provides the band’s vocals, Touko Kirigaya (voiced by Hina Suguta) plays the guitar, Nanami Hiromachi (voiced by Yuuka Nishio) plays bass, Tsukushi Futaba (voiced by mika) plays the drums, and Rui Yashio (voiced by Ayasa) plays the violin.

Bushiroad launched the BanG Dream! multimedia project in January 2015. The first anime season premiered in January 2017, with the second and third seasons broadcasting in January 2019 and January 2020 respectively. The series has also inspired a variety of live concert films. Issen and Xebec handled animation production for season one, with Sanzigen taking over in season two and three. The latest film, BanG Dream! Poppin’ Dream!, debuted in Japan on January 1st, 2022. 

Sentai Filmworks has licensed all seasons and films in North America and streamed them on their HIDIVE service as they aired. They describe the third anime season as: 

The girl-powered bands are gigging again. That means Poppin’Party and other fan favorites are set to return for an all new season of BanG Dream! Now that Kasumi and the rest of Poppin’Party are taking charge of their own show, the sky’s the limit for their rockin’ musical ambitions and dreams of stardom. But they’ll have to contend with other bands looking for their big break, and their friendship will be put to the ultimate test as they rock their way to the top of the charts!
