We’re only days aways from the start of the Summer simulcast season getting underway and today bring you some very exciting news! Get your glow sticks out as we’re delighted to announce that we will be bringing the series Love Live! Sunshine!! to the United Kingdom.
About Love Live! Sunshine!!
Love Live! Sunshine!! is the sequel to the phenomenon that was Love Love! Having had two seasons of anime and a follow-up movie, Love Live! Sunshine!! is the next generation in the franchise.
Synopsis: Uranohoshi Girls’ High School, a private school in the seaside neighborhood of Uchiura at Numazu city, Shizuoka prefecture.
A small high school in a corner of Suruga Bay, it is home to nine teens, led by second-year student Chika Takami, driven by one seriously big dream:
To become the next generation of bright, sparkling “school idols”! As long as we don’t give up, any dream can come true…
All we have to do now is keep pushing hard for fame and glory!
Now their “School Idol Project” begins to make their dreams come true!
We’re delighted to confirm that we will be bringing this series to both Blu-ray and DVD in the United Kingdom. The only details we can share with you right now is that this will be happening next year. So it’s TBC 2017 until you hear otherwise.
But the show hasn’t even aired yet so how are you going to see it during the summer season? We’re also delighted to confirm we have partnered with Crunchyroll to simulcast the series exclusively to the UK & Ireland.
“Nobody can deny the impact that Love Live! has had on anime fandom around the world” says Andrew Partridge, President of Anime Limited. “Being able to bring the next generation of Love Live! to the United Kindgom is something I’m very excited about as we know there are lots of passionate fans of the franchise in the UK. At the moment we can only confirm we’ll be bringing the series to Blu-ray and DVD and that will happen next year.”

We also want to take a moment to mention that if you’ve not seen Love Live! before, our good friends at MVM Entertainment have released both seasons on Blu-ray and DVD. Crunchyroll streamed both seasons as it was airing.
