μ’s! Music Start… again!

The latest issue of Dengeki G’s magazine announced the main cast for the upcoming Love Live! Sunshine!! The roles will be filled as follows:

  • Chika Takami: Anju Inami (Naruto Stage Play)
  • Riko Sakurauchi: Rikako Aida
  • Kanan Matsuura: Nanaka Suwa

Love Live! Sunshine!! is set in a small school in the seaside town of Uchiura. This tiny town, which isn’t far from Numazu, Shizuoka, sports a school with fewer than 100 students enrolled. It’s from this small school, that the next pop sensation will arise.

The new group still doesn’t have a name yet, so the production team is turning to the fans for help. From April 30 through May 11, a poll will be held, in which fans can offer their input.

Aina Suzuki was a competitor in the 2013’s Anison Grande Prix event, and Aika Kobayashi performed the ending themes for Freezing and Queen’s Blade Rebellion.

Love Live Sunshine Cast Announce 001 - 20150427

Love Live! Sunshine!! was first unveiled in February by Dengeki G’s magazine. The initial reveal showed a red-haired girl standing at the center of a beach setting. A month later, the image was revised and updated, to feature the nine girls who will (presumably) make up the idol group in the series proper.
