King of Prism is a Japanese media franchise produced by Avex Pictures and Tatsunoko Production. The series is a spin-off of the Pretty Rhythm multimedia series and focuses on the male characters introduced in Pretty Rhythm's third anime series, Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live, aiming for an older female demographic.[1]

The Pretty Rhythm series focuses on Prism Stars, idols performing figure skating routines through song and dance with special moves known as Prism Jumps.[2][3][4] The characters participate in Prism Shows, live performances that are scored based on how charmed the audience is.[5] Currently, there are two styles of Prism Shows for male Prism Stars: academy-style, standardized performances to appeal to women; and street-style, performances that incorporate street dancing and is not officially recognized by the Prism Show Association.

Set 1.5 years after Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live,[6] the story follows Shin Ichijo, a new student at Edel Rose Academy inspired by the group Over the Rainbow to train at becoming a Prism Star and participate in Prism Show Tournaments.[7][8] However, Edel Rose's ex-supervisor Jin Norizuki has established a rival academy, Schwarz Rose, who becomes their main competitor.[9]

Production[edit]

Hiroko Nishi and Takeshi Yoda had wanted to develop a late-night 13-episode television series that would focus on Over the Rainbow, the male characters of Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live, but their original plan was rejected.[15] When it was reworked into a film, it was rejected again, and the staff were told that if they were able to provide evidence that the project would work out, then it would be approved.[15] When the full version of Over the Rainbow's theme song, "Athletic Core", received positive feedback.[16] a character song album centered on them was produced.[17][18] In 2015, Over the Rainbow appeared in the movie Gekijō-ban PriPara: Minna Atsumare! Prism Tours if the audience chose to view route 4, which ended with a teaser for their comeback. The film was financially successful, with fans attending the cheer screenings multiple times with glowsticks.[19] After executives at Avex Pictures assessed the popularity of cheer screenings, they then approved the King of Prism by Pretty Rhythm film project.
