posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The second Blu-ray Disc volume for the second season of the Love Live! Sunshine!! anime topped Oricon's animation Blu-ray Disc chart for the January 22-28 week, and ranked #2 in the overall Blu-ray Disc chart for the same week. The release sold 34,634 copies. It shipped in Japan on January 26. It is the second consecutive Blu-ray Disc release for the anime to top the animation Blu-ray Disc chart, with the first volume of the second season also topping the chart in December.
The second season of Love Live! Sunshine!! premiered last October. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Funimation began streaming an English dub for the series last October.
The first Love Live! Sunshine!! anime premiered in July 2016. Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Daisuki streamed the series outside of Japan.
The anime will get an all-new film project.
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.
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" that lets its fans vote on the future of the fictional idols. The project inspired the first television anime season in 2013, and a second season followed in 2014. The Love Live! The School Idol Movie anime film then premiered in June 2015.
Crunchyroll streamed both seasons of the anime, and NIS America released both seasons and the film on home video.
