The production of an OVA episode for Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club has been announced. The OVA will receive a theatrical release in Japan in summer 2023.
More details will be released at a later date.
Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club anime, or Nijigaku, currently has two TV anime seasons. The first aired from October to December 2020 with 13 episodes while the second aired from April to June 2022 with 13 episodes. A short anime adaptation of the Nijiyon 4-koma spin-off will begin airing on January 6.
The show differs from other anime in the Love Live! multimedia project by featuring solo idols. The original lineup of Nijigasaki idols was first announced in 2017 as part of the Love Live! School Idol Festival game’s PERFECT Dream Project anniversary project.
Crunchyroll describes Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club as:
Nijigasaki High School is known for their diverse subjects and the freedom they give to students. Second-year student Yu Takasaki has been turned on to the charms of school idols, so she knocks on the door of the School Idol Club with her friend, Ayumu Uehara. Sometimes friends, sometimes rivals, the members of this club each contribute their own thoughts and motivations to the group.
The staff of the show’s two seasons includes Tomoyuki Kawamura as director, Jin Tanaka as series composer, Takumi Yokota as character designer, Misako Akama as color designer, and Daiki Sugiyama as photography director, with Mebachi credited with design works. Season 2’s lineup included Yuuya Horiuchi as assistant director, Yasutoshi Kawai as art director, and Gou Kurosaki (Love Live! Nijigasaki CG supervisor, Love Live! Sunshine!!) as CG director. SUNRISE was the animation production company.
