The TV anime 22/7 is an anime adaptation of the digital idol group 22/7, which is produced overall by Yasushi Akimoto and is a joint effort between Aniplex and Sony Music Records.
The project was announced in 2016, with 11 voice actors selected from a pool of 10325 people to play the idol characters, as well as real live performances and other group activities.
The project was born on December 24 of the same year, and initially only eight characters were revealed in advance to be cast, with the remaining three being announced on September 20, 2018.
Their activities include releasing a CD, participating in real live shows and events, and appearing on radio and live TV shows, including the crowned variety show “22/7 Calculating”.
The abbreviation (nickname) of the title is “Nananiji”.
A key feature of the show is that each character reflects some of the cast’s personalities and profiles, with American-born voice actors playing American-born idols and having the same interests.
This makes the characters and cast more in sync with each other, and that’s what makes it so different from other idol projects.
The anime adaptation was announced at the first live event on July 22, 2017, and two and a half years later, the anime will finally begin airing in January 2020, the third anniversary of its debut.
