The lollypop anime aesthetic has been gaining popularity in recent years, but this trend is getting its own animated show.
The lollipop anime is the latest to make the cut and will premiere on Crunchyroll on April 22.
“It’s an anime style that is very much based on the lollipops,” Crunchy.com’s Ryan Lott said.
“We’re not just trying to replicate a lolliflower, we’re trying to capture a lot of that flavor.”
Lott said the series is a mix of animation and live action, and is set in the fictional city of Honshu, Japan.
It will be a “live-action-animated hybrid” featuring animated scenes with the same animation as the original lollies, but with a live-action soundtrack and a more modern visual style.
Lott says the series will feature some anime elements from other anime styles, such as shounen and comedy.
There’s also a “lollipop”-themed stage in the premiere episode, where viewers can watch clips of the show as well as the anime itself.
“The Lollipop Lifestyle” is one of several new animated series to hit the airwaves this season.
