Look out, μ’s! Aqours is stepping into the limelight!
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.
The confirmed cast for the series is as follows:
- Chika Takami: Anju Inami (Naruto Stage Play)
- Riko Sakurauchi: Rikako Aida
- Kanan Matsuura: Nanaka Suwa
- Daiya Kurosawa: Arisa Komiya (Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters)
- You Watanabe: Shuka Saito
- Yoshiko Tsushima: Aika Kobayashi
- Hanamaru Kunikida: Kanako Takatsuki
- Mari Ohara: Aina Suzuki
- Ruby Kurosawa: Ai Furihata
Hajime Yatate, the pseudonym for the collective staff, is credited with the original concept for the project, and Kimino Sakurako is responsible for the original draft. Kazuo Sakai (Mushi-Uta) will direct the project, as Yuhei Murota provides character designs.
Previous updates to the Love Live! Sunshine!! website included character art and bios, as well as video embeds for three versions of the original TV commercial (15-second, 30-second, 60-second) and B-Side Step! ZERO to ONE
