Any new news on this? It's already June and I've yet to see any new episodes...Was it cancelled?

No. The shorts are set to start July 4th, and those will air BEFORE season 2. Nothing has been said on S2's release date yet.

I was so happy when I heard it was getting a second season. It's one of my favorite series ever.

The only thing in this show I'd look forward to would be Shingancrimsonz-- they were to only reason that made me finish the first season.

This !
Why do you people want a new DTB so badly, the 2nd season was a fucking travesty and is so shit it will doom any sequels off of it with its clusterfuck of a ending and raping of lore.

Maybe they want to remake it ? but yeah that sounds pretty impossible.
Just forget it, it's just my little hope.

Good News for the Series...I GUESS...

Awww yes ^^ this show was so cute! More Cyan and Rom ♥

What sort of drama will they display this time?

First season was terrible, I could barely sit through it. I suppose, this is a good news for the fans.

Nov 9, 2015 1:39 AM by ToG25thBaam

I'm in favor of this. I sure hope there will be a good reason why Cyan would need to be brought back to meet her friends again in MidiCity. This means more bands from the game could make their appearance here, huh?

Either way, I'm definitely looking forward to this sequel. :)

Although with Love Live, the manga was released in January 2012, the anime in January 2013, and the game in April 2013, so that doesn't really count considering the game didn't come first.

Love Live is originally a music video in 2010 before it gets manga/anime adaptation.
