The story of World Dai Star is set in a world where the best actors are known as “Dai Star.” Their existence creates worldwide popularity boom for theater. The main character, Kokona Ootori, vies to get the “World Dai Star” title by auditioning for Sirius, a theater company that she admires greatly.
The project is also set to release a manga titled World Dai Star Encore that will begin its serialization on April 2. A game will also be launched in the summer of 2023.
