Haruto: I’ll put this lightly, but kid, you’re better than the best.

Shin: You can’t do it.
Junya: The only unit that can have a CD debut is the one that takes the top at the Dream Festival.

Haruto: Can you accept their Cheers, Kanade?
Text: “Shin’ai Naru Yume e!”(To Our Beloved Dream!) by DearDream
Text: The cheering is in the Dream Cards!
Haruto: It’s not easy being an idol but it’s extremely exciting.
Kanade: I’m positive I’m going to love it when I can make someone smile!
As with Aikatsu, Dream Festival! follows idols who gain their power through outfits contained in cards. Dream Festival! is a multimedia project in which the actors that play the characters are in fact idols themselves. Like their characters, the real-life idols will perform at concerts for fans.
Dream Festival! will premiere on Japanese television on October 7. The streaming service bilibili will stream the series in China.
