Anime News

It’s full steam ahead for the newest TV anime project of idol franchise phenomenon Love Live! A new promo video highlighting the 5 main cast has been unveiled this Sunday, which shows the character designs for each as well as their names. Check out the PV here!

From left to right in above image, the characters’ names are: Chisato Arashi, Sumire Heanna, Kanon Shibuya, Tang Keke, and Ren Hazuki.

The name of the school in the story, which will be the main setting of the anime series, has also been announced as “Yuigaoka Girls’ High School”. As with previous generations of Love Live!, the school’s name was decided via fan vote.

The new idol project uses the tagline, “Watashi o Kanaeru Monogatari — Hello!!! Love Live!” (“The story of my dreams coming true. Hello!!! Love Live!").

Original work is once again credited to Hajime Yatate, the collective pseudonym for the staff of Sunrise. Original concept is still credited to Kimino Sakurako (Strawberry Panic). Takahiko Kyougoku (original Love Live! School idol project series and film) returns as director alongside Jukki Hanada, writer for Love Live! School idol project and Love Live! Sunshine!!. Atsushi Saito is adapting the original character designs by Yuhei Morata for TV. Yoshiaki Fujisawa also returns as music composer.

The new project was first announced on January 19, during the second day of the Love Live! Fes event which celebrated the franchise’s nine successful years in the business. First generation group μ’s (much to the excitement of OG Love Live! fans) shared the stage with other groups from the franchise: Love Live! Sunshine!!’s Aqours and Saint Snow, and smartphone game Love Live! School Idol Festival’s Nijigasaki Academy’s Idol Appreciation Club. The concert was held over two days at the Saitama Super Arena.

Love Live! is a multimedia project co-developed by ASCII Media Works’ Dengeki G’s Magazine, music label Lantis, and animation studio Sunrise. The project has encompassed several media including anime, manga, live concerts, and smartphone games. It was launched in 2010 with μ‘s as its faces. The project was adapted into an anime series in 2013, with a second season following in 2014. The project and the group μ’s proved to be a massive commercial success, topping CD sales in Japan and selling out concerts in venues as big as Tokyo Dome.
