Love Live! Superstar!! Anime Season 2 Previewed in Video
A streamed special screening for the Love Live! Superstar!! anime debuted the extended version of the second season’s promotional video on Saturday.
The members of the anime’s Liella! idol group themselves had planned to appear in a live stream on Saturday. However, Sayuri Date (Kanon Shibuya), Liyuu (Tang Keke), and Naomi Payton (Sumire Heanna) were in a taxi accident on July 3. The members stated on Twitter that they received minor injuries and are not seriously injured. The three are recovering.
Crunchyroll streamed the first season in the U.K. and Ireland, and it describes the story:
The first students have arrived at Yuigaoka Girls’ High School, a new academy built on the crossroads of Omotesando, Harajuku, and Aoyama. With no history, no upperclassmen to rely on, and no name to speak of, this school’s totally starting from scratch!
In the midst of this, a team of five girls led by Kanon Shibuya discover “school idols.”
—I love singing! I really do! And I want to accomplish something with it!
So the hopes of these stars, still small in stature, begin to accumulate…and so begins the “School Idol Project” of five girls with a blank slate and infinite potential.
The members of Liella! include:
- Sayuri Date as Kanon Shibuya
- Liyuu as Tang Keke
- Nako Misaki as Chisato Arashi
- Naomi Payton as Sumire Heanna
- Nagisa Aoyama as Ren Hazuki
The anime’s second season will premiere on NHK Educational on July 17.
