Genjitsu no Yohane Love Live! Spin-off Will Begin in July, Key Visual Released


The Genjitsu no Yohane — Sunshine in the Mirror anime, a fantasy spin-off of Love Live! Sunshine!!, has received a July release window and a key visual depicting its cast of characters.

Genjitsu no Yohane — Sunshine in the Mirror was officially announced last June, following an earlier April’s Fool announcement the same year. It is based on a series of illustrations that began in 2020 and feature the Yohane persona of chuunibyou character Yoshiko Tsushima in a fantasy setting. A Kadokawa-published manga titled Genjitsu no Yohane -Unpolarized Reflexion-, illustrated by Kouta Matsuda, began in 2022.


The Genjitsu no Yohane — Sunshine in the Mirror anime is described as:

The story that nobody knows, of the girl that everybody knows ——.

Numazu, a picturesque port city surrounded by the sea and mountains.
Yohane, a girl who could not fit in with her surroundings since childhood, lived her days keeping a distance from the people in the city.

The thing I want to do, the place I truly belong in, that’s ——.

Walking with a girl who cannot be honest,
A mysterious world that you know of.
