Love Live! has a fourth-yet-unnamed anime project in the works. However, it looks like it will be untitled for much longer, as Sunrise has now registered a new Love Live! trademark. They registered the trademark called Love Live! Superstar!! on June 16, and they made it public on June 30.
So far, the still officially untitled series has revealed five new school idols. They are (from left to right in the image above) Chisato Arashi, Sumire Heanna, Kanon Shibuya, Tang Keke, and Ren Hazuki. And much like Love Live! Sunshine!!, fans would also get to decide the name of this group. In the second series, it was the fans who 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.
