Last month Dengeki G’s Magazine announced Love Live! Sunshine!!, a new project in the Love Live! franchise, with a visual featuring a new character. Recently, the official website of Dengeki G’s magazine has revealed a new updated visual showing 8 more new characters.
Here is the first visual
No information about Love Live! Sunshine!! was revealed in the previous issue of Dengeki G’s magazine, so here’s hoping that the upcoming issue, releasing on the 28th of this month, will have the first new information of the anime. Since the first visual, there has been speculation on who the character might be, with various fans tracing her to a possible character in the Love Live! School Idol Paradise mobile game.
Love Live! School Idol Project is an original anime produced by Sunrise studios that aired in January 2013. The conception of the anime project was started in 2010 by Dengeki G’s Magazine. The editors wanted parts of the project to be heavily influenced by fans, parts such as the costumes, hairstyles and names of the idols. While this project was taking place, a manga of the project called Love Live!, written and illustrated by Sakurako Kimino and Arumi Tokita, began serializing. An anime series soon premiered, followed by an app and an OVA. The second season titled Love Live! School Idol Project 2nd Season aired from April 6, 2014 to June 29, 2014 for a total of 13 episodes.
Love Live! School Idol Project synopsis of the series from Haruhichan:
Otonokizaka High School stands on the border of three cities: Akihabara—a pop culture mecca that’s evolving by the minute; Kanda—a conservative, cultured city where history and tradition reign supreme; and Jinbo—a quiet area reserved for a more mature, sophisticated population. Amidst this culture clash, the school now faces closure due to the enrollment of fewer and fewer students.
With the school planning to close within three years, nine female students come together with one thing in mind—form a pop idol group to revive the school’s popularity and keep it from shutting down. “In order to protect our beloved school, there’s only one thing we can do… become pop stars!”
Not much is currently known about Love Live! Sunshine!! It could be a new anime series, a new mobile card game, a PlayStation Vita title or even a banner image for a new radio. Regardless, all will be revealed in the next issue of Dengeki G’s magazine, releasing on the 28th.
