Love Live! Sunshine!!'s Aqours group announced at the "Aqours First LoveLive! ~Step! ZERO to ONE~" concert in Yokohama on Sunday that the Love Live! Sunshine!! anime is getting a second season this fall. The concert was the first major concert for the nine-girl Aqours group, and it took place on Saturday and Sunday. The group also announced that the "Love Live! Sunshine!! Aquors 2nd Love Live! Happy Party Train Tour" will be held at Nagoya's Nippon Gaishi Hall on August 5 and 6, at Kobe's World Memorial Hall on August 19 and 20, and at Saitama's Seibu Prince Dome on September 29 and 30.


Pretty excited about this tbh. Who is ready for more Love Live?! The girls will return again for Fall 2017 for another season. As a fan of both the franchise (I play both the game and seen all of the previous seasons/main series), I' am excited.

Not much of a surprise given the sales, while lower than LLSIP, are still very high. Still great to see if confirmed! Very much looking forward to season two and all the new songs and MVs

I'm definitely excited. I just hope that the new season is just as good, if not better than the first one

As said, not exactly shocking, but still great news. Oddly enough, it's going to be partially airing while I'm in Japan again just like with the first season. lol

in season 2 of LLSIP, there was focus on character development for Nico, Hanayo and Nozomi.
maybe in this upcoming second season, they'll choose Ruby, Yoshiko and Kanan
(i think the latter really needs an episode for herself, like Nozomi did)

Hah, yes! All that waiting's finally paying off. While it's too early to say, but i say it anyway: LL!S!! 2nd Season is Anime of the Year, to me.

Also, there are two things i'd like say.

The first is that i knew it would come in upcoming fall. How? I don't know if this makes any sense but:

LL!SIP Season 1: Winter 2013
LL!SIP Season 2: Spring 2014
LL1 The Movie: Summer 2015
LL!S!! Season 1: Summer 2016

Another thing is what i'm expecting from upcoming season. To see Aqours win Love Live! and maybe, just maybe μ's could make a real appearance, not any minor appearances or anything like that. As a big LL! fan, i'd like to see that happening. It would be so cool.

Yeah, that was one thing they did really well in SIP S2. Once they had the band together in S1, they really did a great job of giving all of the characters their own development and moments to shine. I'm not sure I'll ever personally come to like Yohane but I felt the same way about Nico in SIP. Truth to be told, I still don't really like Nico but at least her S2 development made me care about her a little.

Ruby and Kanan definitely do need more individual focus as they've largely just been defined so far by their relationship to other characters instead of really being made to stand on their own.

I'm sort of on the fence about Aquors winning Love Live. Not that I don't think it will happen, I'm pretty sure it will, but it feels pretty much destined that they will and that's sort of boring. I'd almost like to see them switch it up some how.

I do really hope that μ's does show up in some capacity, or at least some members of μ's. Sunshine has done more than enough at this point to distance itself from being a SIP clone and is really standing on it's own as a great show so they've earned a throw back or two. Plus, I'd really selfishly just like to know what the μ's girls are up to at this point in time. lol

*nods*

As others have observed, this is not a shock. Been looking forward to this, and I have every expectation that it will still be fun.

I have something to look forward to this fall and hope this time they meet someone from μ's. Fans really expected that to happen in the first season but instead got a tease.

saying it was a tease is a severe understatement. the series made constant references to μ's - far more than it really needed.
they were not subtle, either - a significant portion of the series was dedicated into μ's that stretched for several episodes.
it's fine that they wanted to make a point that μ's was very popular, but they did it at the cost of less time on Aquors.
by comparison, Pripara episode 1 was able to make the same point in ~2 minutes or so in the 1st episode, and Aikatsu gracefully transitioned from Soleil (Ichigo being the main) to Luminas (Akari being the new main)
hopefully this won't happen in season 2.

I am well aware that they had reference to μ's through out the season I did watch it. Fans expected them to meet someone from μ's as they even tease us with a loli look alike of Honoka. If you remember that scene that was what I meant with tease.

ah, that scene was adorable, i remember :p i could be wrong, but i don't think μ's are supposed to be that much older compared to Aquors.
this scene seems to imply that μ's victory was fairly recent when Chika decided to become an idol


as for Aquors meeting μ's - at most, we might see a glimpse, or μ's from "afar" (the camera might zoom-in on them)
them meeting in person seems extremely unlikely, given that

but who knows, maybe Sunrise will surprise us.
