The next school idol generation is here: The first season of the Love Live! Sunshine!! anime has begun airing on July 2, 2016.
Set at Uranohoshi Girls’ High School, a private school in the seaside neighborhood of Uchiura at Numazu city, the storyline follows a group driven by a big dream: to become the next generation of bright, sparkling school idols!
The girls decide to walk into the footsteps of famous school idol group μ’s whom the anime Love Live! was all about and create their own group, Aquors. Sunshine!! can thus be seen as taking over where Love Live! stopped.
Uranohoshi Girls’ High School is facing closure due to decreasing student intake. Second-year student Takami Chika hears about μ’s and, inspired by them, tries to start her own School Idol Club.
The series is produced by anime company Sunrise in association with the music label company Lantis and directed by Sakai Kazuo.
Watch Love Live! Sunshine!! to follow the adventures of the new school idol group Aquors and its nine members!
Good news for the SIF players too!
