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:

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!! 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.
