Disney Channel Japan to Run 1st Love Live! Anime Season

posted on by Egan Loo

The Disney Channel in Japan will begin running the first season of the Love Live! anime on April 20. The series will run every Monday through Thursday at 9:30 p.m. and 24:30 (effectively 12:30 a.m. the next morning). The Disney Channel is also listing Love Live! among its recommended shows for April.

In 2010, the anime studio Sunrise, Lantis, and ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G Magazine launched Love Live! as a self-described "ultimate user-participation project" which lets its fans vote on the future of the fictional idols. A series of music CDs and animated music videos then followed. The members of the project announced in 2012 that an full anime series had been green-lit for the following year. The second season of the anime was announced in June 2013. A film will open in Japan on June 13.

Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and NIS America has licensed both seasons for North American release.
