After Sunrise registered the trademark for Love Live! Superstar!!, the official Love Live! website has now confirmed that this will indeed be the title for the new Love Live! anime. In addition, they also confirmed the setting of this new series, which is Yuigaoka Girls High School.
In addition, the website also announced that Love Live! Days Love Live! Sougou Magazine Vol. 08 magazine will launch official elections so that fans can vote for certain aspects of the anime’s story. This includes the logo for Yuigaoka Girls High School, and of course, the name of the school idol group itself.
The members of the group includes (from left to right in the image above) Chisato Arashi, Sumire Heanna, Kanon Shibuya, Tang Keke, and Ren Hazuki. In the second series, it was the fans who also decided that the second school idol group be named AQOURS. I wonder what this group’s name will be…
Once again, the new anime credits Hajime Yatate, the collective pseudonym for the staff of Sunrise, for the original work, while Sakurako Kimino is the one behind the original concept. And that’s not all, because Takahiko Kyougoku is also returning from the original anime as director. The project is tentatively dubbed as the well… “New Project”. And yes, the main girl also has orange hair and is pretty much another Honoka clone…
There’s not much information about this new anime project yet though, but it will be a different project from the upcoming anime featuring the Nijigasaki Academy School Idol Appreciation Club. The Love Live! franchise first introduced the Nijigasaki Academy School Idol Appreciation Club as part of “Perfect Dream Project” (PDP) for the Love Live! School Idol Festival smartphone game. And much like µ’s and AQOURS before it, the school idol group also has nine members. They would be the third Love Live! group to get an anime, with this new upcoming one being the fourth.
