Everything has been going online in the last year or so — and a new media mix project is bringing host clubs into the fray.
Remote Host brings the world of host clubs to the Internet, featuring a scenario by Hioko Kanasugi (DIABOLIK LOVERS MB). The music will be produced by anison production company F.M.F. and mixed at Studio Mausu.
The hosts of the media mix series are divided up into two host clubs: Club Venere (with character designs by jimao) and Club Saturno (with character designs by Otaka Poppo):
Series stars Lucifer (CV Kôsuke Toriumi) and Chronos (CV Hiroki Yasumoto) are former members of Planet 6, a formidable host club that once served at Club Galassia. Galassia’s owner, referred to only as the “Emperor,” is looking to pass ownership of the club over to one of the P6. Whoever proves that they’re the world’s best host — and that their group is the world’s best host club — will be the Emperor’s successor.
Check out the trailer for the project below, featuring a sample of its theme song:
So far, Remote Host has opened a website, Twitter account, and YouTube channel. The project will include live streams, YouTube videos, music, and “everyday life” posts from each of the hosts. And, as the project’s title suggests, there will be “remote host clubs” — though how exactly that will play out remains to be seen.
Remote Host is underway, having run its first livestream earlier today.
