The official website for the DYNAMIC CHORD franchise's DYNAMIC CHORD Jam&Join!!!! smartphone app announced on Wednesday that the app will end service on April 18. The app's staff said in the announcement that management support from the developer and service updates had become difficult, so the decision was made to end service.
Unreleased story content will debut on the app's website from March 27 to May 15, and an Instagram account for the story will also launch in April. Sales of paid items for the app will end on March 27. Staff will no longer respond to support inquiries for the app after May 15.
In the game, players secretly support DYNAMIC CHORD franchise band members as new employees at a live performance venue. The game launched in August 2018. Asgard, the company that owned the honeybee label that managed the franchise, dissolved on January 4, and the company Arithmetic took over management of the app.
The franchise includes games, anime, manga, a stage play, and drama CD adaptations. The play, titled DYNAMIC CHORD the Stage, will run at the Hulic Hall Tokyo from May 10-15.
The franchise's 12-episode anime series premiered in October 2017, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for home video. The series streamed on HIDIVE as it aired. Crunchyroll added the anime to its catalog in November.
The DYNAMIC CHORD anime follows the musical careers and personal lives of several bands under the "Dynamic Chord" agency and music label. The show's in-universe bands are progressive rock band rêve parfait, veteran rock band KYOHSO, newcomer rock band Liar-S, and global performers apple-polisher.
