Kasumi Toyama has always been captivated by the “beat of the stars.” Since then, she’s been searching for something… a spark that’ll excite and thrill her! Following a trail of star-shaped stickers, she soon stumbles upon a Random Star guitar at her school mate’s house! Could this mark the start of something amazing? A sparkling, heart-racing high school life begins for Kasumi as she decides to form a band!
Written and illustrated by Mami Kashiwabara, BanG Dream! tells the story of 1st year high school student Kasumi Toyama, who endeavours to form a band after a series of chance encounters reunites her with the “beat of the stars” sensation she first experienced as a kid. While the BanG Dream! manga shares the same premise with the hit television anime series currently airing in Japan, the manga provides more comprehensive details to each character and features additional scenes not seen in the anime.
Volume 1 of the BanG Dream! English manga is slated to come out in Philippines and five other countries in Southeast Asia near the end of March and publishers Shogakukan Asia are currently exploring opportunities with overseas partners to release the manga in other territories such as in the US.
