Love Live! Superstar!!, the latest anime in the Love Live multimedia franchise, will premiere in July, the Love Live Twitter page revealed.

The anime was first announced in January 2020 with the tagline, “Watashi o Kanaeru Monogatari.”

The staff includes Takahiro Kyougoku (Land of the Lustrous) as director, Juuki Hanada (Granbelm) as series composer, and Yoshiaki Fujisawa (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) as music composer. Meanwhile, the cast includes Sayuri Date as Kanon Shibuya, Liyuu as Tang Keke, Nako Misaki as Chisato Arashi, Naomi Payton as Sumire Heanna, and Nagisa Aoyama as Ren Hazuki. 

Love Live! Superstar!! will be set in an all-girls high school called Yuigaoka and follows five freshmen who form an idol group. The group’s name, Liella, was decided in September 2020 via a vote. 

Liella’s debut single, “Hajimari wa Kimi no Sora,” (“The Beginning is Your Sky”) received a music video on January 30. The music video will be available for purchase from April 7 via two releases with slight B-Side variations, “Minna de Kanaeru Monogatari” (“A Story Brought To Life By You”) and “Watashi o Kanaeru Monogatari.”

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
