Monday's Love Live! Sunshine!! Niconico Live program announced that the Love Live! franchise continuation will receive a TV anime in Summer 2016.

Love Live! Sunshine!! is part of the multimedia Love Live! project co-developed by Dengeki G's Magazine, animation studio Sunrise, and music label Lantis. The new project was announced last February and revealed in the June 2015 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine.

The new series follows the nine-member school idol group Aqours (pronounced "aqua") at Uranohoshi Girls' Academy in Numazu, Shizuoka Prefecture. Chika Takami, who is a fan of Otonokizaka Academy's μ's school idol group from the original Love Live! series, similarly forms Aqours in order to save her school from being closed down.

Aqours' first single, "Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteru kai?," was released on October 7, 2015, with the music video animated by Sunrise. The group's second single was announced at the Niconico Live broadcast for release on April 27, 2016.

Kazuo Sakai, who directed the music video for the first single, will direct Love Live! Sunshine!! with character designs by Yuuhei Murota.

Oh dear god, Aquors is a mixed bag as a group, music wise it's alright and I have no worries there but I'm afraid this may end being like Cinderella Girls, another disasterpiece with great music.

Dear Sunrise.
Please don`t turn Sunshine into Cinderella Girls v2.0

We need a decent script writer who knows how to write a good drama.

*kerching*

Can understand why those involved want to keep a successful franchise running.

Is there any precedent for changing the line-up in successful long running ensemble shows? As far as I can recall the only long running shows I've seen completely ignore the passing of time (As do most western cartoons) so they have no need to change the characters.

sheesh, they're not being very original with the plot are they...

I guess they really want to get the same boom in popularity the first season did for µ's.

This franchise was practically screaming anime so it was inevitable. I kinda feel it might be a bit early but guess we'll see what happens. Really enjoyed the latest Love Live! movie so I hope so I'll definitely watch this even though the cast is new.

Yeah, they should've waited a little longer before announcing an anime, it's way too soon, and it may rub fans the wrong way.

It is way too soon, marketing isn't everything, having an actual good product is very important, this is why they need to wait and also it gives time for people to get over the loss of Muse, to get their minds fresh and ready for a new group.

Aqours is also being added to the School Idol Festival mobile game on iOS and Android as well, cards and stories starting this month without stories, proper stories voiced by the seiyuu coming later (but soon). Details on the official site's news page.

We all knew this was coming. Sunrise wants to make another Gundam don't they :P

Although I don't like how they chose complete unknowns to voice the characters, the original at least had some recognizeable names in the cast. And for the love of god don't let Mari Okada have anything to do with this. The first season's infrequent melodrama was cringy enough.

Personally, in 20 years I foresee my daughter watching the 26th entry in the Love Live franchise featuring a middle-aged Eli coaching another group of moeblobs wanting to save their school from closing, and being able to tell her that I was there when it all started. Good times.

Seems like a lot of people (165,845) tuned in to watch the Aqours Nico Nico Live tonight.



Originally it was going to run from 21:00 to 22:00, but Nico Nico Live extended it to run from 21:00 to 22:45, but it still went overtime up to 23:04.

I wish Aqours every success in the future as a Love Live fan, but I also know the immense pressure the Aqours seiyuu will be under since they have an extremely high bar to reach if they aim to surpass Muse.

This is what Muse has achieved so far:
・シングル最高売上13万(ゴールドディスク計6)
・アルバム最高売上14万(ゴールドディスク計2)
・アルバムオリコン1位&アニソン史上初の月間総合1位
・シングル初動9.6万枚で深夜アニメ歴代最高初動枚数記録樹立(※シリアル、イベチケ無し)
・同一名義のキャラクターによる3作同時週間TOP10入りは史上初の快挙
・5thライブ円盤初動4.9万枚、アニメイベント円盤歴代最高初動でオリコン週間総合1位
・NHK Rの法則出演(3曲、トークあり)※アンコール放送でPrintempsの追加メッセージ
・MJ出演(3曲、単独トーク、金爆のバックダンサー)
・NHK1時間単独特番制作(8曲、NHK本気のカメラワークと演出)
・多数企業とのコラボ商品展開(神田祭、ねぶた祭、七夕祭り、パワーパフガールズなど)
・劇場版動員3週連続1位&公開150日で観客動員数200万人突破、興行収入28億で深夜アニメ歴代1位
・TOKYO MXで特番放送
・来年1月2日(土)からNHK全国でTVアニメ1期再放送決定
・第66回NHK紅白歌合戦に初出場決定
・声優ユニット初となるミュージックステーション出演決定
・劇場版BDが初動20万越え
・μ’s 紅白前半2位の視聴率

Guess it only makes sense they'd want to do the anime as soon as possible. After all that is what sky-rocketed Love Live's popularity in the first place.

Looking forward to it. Also there is absolutely no way this is going to screw up as bad as Cinderella Girls. I mean the movie didn't suck like Idolm@ster's so that's already a good sign. More to the point unlike Cinderella Girls which was handled by a completely different team than the original Idolm@ster anime (Despite both being animated at A1) I think this is going to be mostly the same staff.

It was though. The girls were almost all bland as shit, some of them just completely lacked distinctive personality traits altogether, Mio is a complete cunt of a human being and the drama was horrendous.

Also what in God's name was Kirarin even supposed to be? It's like this weird mish-mash of 5 different character types.

You'd really have to try to be worse than Cinderella Girls.

It was a disasterpiece, it has a terrible cast, and the second season was ruined by far too much drama, it's like they were pulling a WUG but failed to see why WUG is decent in the first place.

This will end up like Cinderella girls - trash compared to the original.

Of course when you have a franchise that sells insanely well, especially Love Live, selling even 20% of what the original sold ( in terms of BD sales alone ) would be a huge success. Makes complete sense why they're doing this.

Well, who didn't see this coming?

Seriously though...why are they following the original plot line? Half the aquors girls are already pretty similar to the muse members.

I don't feel enthusiatic for this at all.

Praying this won't become cinderella girls ver 2.0.

I'm still pretty bummed out that the old characters are getting ditched. I'd like to see Nico and the rest doing their idol thing after high school. None of these new girls aside from maybe Ruby look appealing to me.

Not so fast if you think of this project as a continuation (or extension) of an existing (all roads have been paved). It would not be the case of a project that is born from nothing. Also, I think that all of this has already been working for more than one year.
