NIS America is thrilled to announce its acquisition of Love Live! School Idol Project for the North American market. Love Live! is a brand-new anime series set to begin airing in Japan this January. Putting an interesting spin on the anime world, Love Live! features fictional animated characters and living, breathing group members side by side! The package release date information will be announced in the coming months. For those interested in a sneak peek, visit Crunchyroll to get your early fix of Love Live! beginning January 8, at 8 A.M. PST.
This voter-inspired idol project has already inspired several music videos across the web (and across the Pacific) by fans who voted on almost every aspect of the character creation process that included Sunrise animation studios, Lantis recording studios and Dengeki G’s Magazine. The basic premise behind the idol group is that these 9 girls are striving to become the next big idol sensation following the closing of the school they all attended in an attempt to save it. Since the start of the group, three albums have been released: Umiiro Shōjo ni Miserarete, Kotori Lovin’ You and Honnori Honokairo! Be sure to check out this anime when it becomes available. If what I have seen and heard is any indication, this could be one of the best anime series of the 2013 Spring quarter.
