During a special live stream, the production committee for the Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club multimedia project has revealed a brand-new OVA project that will be airing across Japan’s theaters starting next Summer 2023. A teaser visual was also revealed for the announcement.
Furthermore, the nationwide fan meeting tour Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club Nijitabi! TOKIMEKI FAN MEETING TOUR will start in April. The tour will go across multiple Japan prefectures, including Hiroshima, Tokyo, Aichi, Fukuoka, Osaka, and Hokkaido. Tickets for the Hiroshima, Tokyo, and Aichi shows will be included in the theme song single.
Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club is a Japanese multimedia spin-off project from Love Live! series and its game series Love Live! School Idol Festival. It was first introduced in 2017 as “Perfect Dream Project” and was initially created as part of the game Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars.
Unlike μ’s and Aqours, the previous groups from the franchise, they are a group of individual school idols who compete with each other while working together to keep their school idol club alive. Together, they are referred to as the Nijigasaki High School Idol Club.
At the same event, a new trailer for the Nijiyon Animation, the short television anime adaptation of Miyakohito’s four-panel manga spinoff Nijiyon Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Dōkōkai Yon-Koma was also unveiled. The anime will be airing on both Tokyo MX and BS11 on January 6, 2023.
Hajime Yatate, the collective pseudonym for the staff of Sunrise, is the credit for the original work. Sakurako Kimino was also credited again for the original concept, as in the previous Love Live! anime. Tomoyuki Kawamura directed the first season at Sunrise. Jin Tanaka was in charge of the series scripts. Takumi Yokota designed the characters.
