Love! Live! Sunshine!! Fantasy Anime Announced

Love! Live! Sunshine is ready for a major comeback. After wrapping its story some years ago, the anime's idols are back in action thanks to an upcoming anime. Today, it was announced the series is returning for a spin-off anime, and it will bring our favorite singers into a fantasy world any isekai would envy!

The announcement just went live in Japan as the Tokyo Dome held the Aqours 6th LoveLive! Windy Stage. It was there fans were treated to the fantasy anime's first trailer, and it turns out the whole crew behind Love! Live! Sunshine is returning for this spin-off. This special show marks a first for the franchise as it will reunite an idol group that already has a complete series under its belt. But given these girls' popularity, it is easy to see why Love! Live! wanted to bring them back.

At this point, little is known about the fantasy anime, but we do have a title. The series will be called Sunshine in the Mirror, and it will bring the original anime's cast into a fantasy realm. So far, it seems the series will lean into isekai tropes and inspire some new music along the way. So if you are eager to see the next era of Love! Live!, this show won't be one to miss!
