"Music S.T.A.R.T!!" single to bundle franchise's 1st original video anime on Blu-ray

Japanese music company Lantis began streaming a preview video and a television commercial to promote "Music S.T.A.R.T!!" — the sixth single from the Love Live! School idol project anime's idol group μ's — on Sunday. The single will bundle a special original video anime (OVA) on Blu-ray Disc.

The sixth single will come in three variants on November 27. The deluxe edition with Blu-ray and the standard edition with Blu-ray will both have the special OVA and song animation clips, running 15 minutes long. The standard edition with DVD will just have the animation clips, 5 minutes long.

All three variants will have the title song track, a second song, the vocal-less versions of both songs, and an audio drama.

The deluxe editions will also bundle an exclusive panorama sleeve that opens into a wide illustration board (126 x 606 millimeters or 5 x 25 inches), and an "Otonokizaka Academy Attendance Set." The set has an alpacca plush pass case, three heart-shaped keychains with unit single jacket illustrations, and a μ's lunch bag.

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 last year that a full television anime series has been green-lit.

The series premiered in Japan on January 6. The media service Crunchyroll began streaming on January 8 at 11:00 a.m. EST. NIS America has licensed the series for North American release.
