Love Live! Nijigasaki Academy School Idol Club TV Anime Staff Announced Along with Updated Visual Featuring New Character
You can choose the name of the new girl via online vote
The official website for the Love Live! Nijigasaki Academy School Idol Club TV anime updated on January 30 with the staff for the upcoming next generation of Love Live! – one of two anime in production for the franchise. This comes a day after the announcement of a new character for the Nijigasaki Academy School Idol Club TV anime, whose name will be decided by an online poll.
The new character is rumored to be “Anata” (You) from the Love Live! School Idol Festival ALL STARS mobile game, and thus, like all good unnamed characters from an RPG, she needs her own name for the TV anime series. You can submit your name on the G’s Magazine website once per day until midnight February 13 Japan time. The form can be filled out from around the world – they even have options to say you’re from international countries – but it is all in Japanese.
The initial staff list for the Love Live! Nijigasaki Academy School Idol Club TV anime has been released on the official website, changed from Love Live! Sunshine!!. The staff is as follows:
Director: Tomoyuki Kawamura (Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon)
Series Composition: Jin Tanaka (Cinderella Nine, Go! Princess Precure)
Character Designer: Takumi Yokota (animation director on Love Live! Sunshine!! The School Idol Movie Over the Rainbow, chief animation director on Gourmet Girl Graffiti)
