Funimation Not Streaming New Love Live! to U.K and Ireland

posted on by Andrew Osmond
Funimation apologises on Twitter for wrongly announcing title for the territory

Funimation confirmed on its U.K and Ireland Twitter feed that it will not be streaming Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Dōkōkai (Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club) to the U.K. and Ireland.

Funimation U.K. and Ireland's Twitter message reads, "Please note that human error caused this title to be announced erroneously, when it will not be available in this territory. We completely understand any disappointment and frustration caused and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience."

Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Dōkōkai premiered on October 3 on the Tokyo MX channel as well as on the Bandai Channel, Line Live, and YouTube Live streaming services.

The franchise's staff introduced the members of Nijigasaki Academy's Idol Appreciation Club in 2017 as part of KLab Games and Bushiroad's Love Live! School Idol Festival smartphone game's "Perfect Dream Project" (PDP).

Hajime Yatate, the collective pseudonym for the staff of Sunrise, is once again credited forthe original work. Sakurako Kimino is also credited again for original concept, as in previous Love Live! anime. Tomoyuki Kawamura (Good Luck Girl!, Mitsuboshi Colors, Kamigami no Asobi - Ludere deorum) is directing the anime at Sunrise. Jin Tanaka (Laid-Back Camp, Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode, Cinderella Nine) is in charge of the series scripts. Takumi Yokota (Pupipō!, Mitsuboshi Colors) is designing the characters.

Thanks to Dave for the heads-up.
