posted on by Egan Loo
The Bandai Channel posted the trailer for the Love Live! Sunshine!! television anime with English subtitles on Wednesday. The same trailer, in the original Japanese without English translations, has announced earlier this month that the anime would launch worldwide simultaneously next month.
Funimation, which will stream the anime in North America, describes the story:
Nothing is more appealing than the bright, sparkling world of School Idols! The girls of Uranohoshi Girls' High School are swept into idol fever, wanting nothing more than to become the next-best School Idol group. And they plan to do just that. Chika Takami brings together eight of her classmates to form Aqours, their own idol group. As long as they don't give up, any dream can come true!
Anime Expo will host idols from Love Live! Sunshine!! in a special "~Love Live! Sunshine!! Event: Nice to Meet You, We are Aqours!!~" talk session and screening in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Kazuo Sakai (Mushi-Uta director, episode director for Love Live! School idol project, Gundam Build Fighters) is directing the series at Sunrise, and Jukki Hanada (all previous Love Live! School idol project anime) is handling the series composition. Yūhei Murota returned to design the characters, and Tatsuya Katou (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma) is composing the music at Lantis.
The Love Live! Sunshine!! project was first announced in February 2015. The project's three key phrases are "Reader Participation," "Inspired by μ's," and "Seaside Town Setting." The group's name Aqours was chosen by fans by popular vote.
NIS America released the two earlier Love Live! School Idol Project anime seasons and the film in North America. Crunchyroll streamed these television anime seasons as they aired in Japan.
