Love Live! Sunshine!! fans have something to look forward to this July as the new anime series based on the Genjitsu no Yohane -Sunshine in the Mirror- magazine illustration series is set to premiere on Tokyo MX, BS11, and other television channels.

The first full trailer promotional video for the anime series was released on the official website on Sunday, giving fans a glimpse of what's to come. The "story no one knows about a girl everyone knows" reimagines Yoshiko Tsushima, the school idol afflicted with chūnibyō (adolescent delusions of grandeur), as a fortune-telling girl. Set in Numazu, a scenic harbor town surrounded by the sea and mountains, the story follows Yohane, a girl who never fit in and who journeys through a wondrous world in search of her aspirations and true place in the world.

The returning cast includes Aika Kobayashi as Yohane, Kanako Takatsuki as Hanamaru, Arisa Komiya as Dia, Ai Furihata as Ruby, Anju Inami as Chika, Shuka Saitō as Yō, Nanaka Suwa as Kanan, Rikako Aida as Riko, and Aina Suzuki as Mari.

Asami Nakatani, director of Ensemble Stars!! Road to Show!!, is directing the anime at Sunrise, while Toshiya Ono, known for his work on Land of the Lustrous, The Promised Neverland, and Suite Precure, is supervising the series scripts. Yumiko Yamamoto, who worked on Seven Senses of the Re'Union and Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld, is designing the characters, and Tatsuya Katō, who previously worked on Ensemble Stars!, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, and Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, is returning to compose the music.

Fans of the Love Live! franchise can also participate in the production of the anime by submitting their ideas for backstories on the Numazu residents. The staff may incorporate these ideas into the actual production. In addition, a "Yohane no Uranai Koheya" (Yohane's Fortune-Telling Booth) web radio program will launch, and fans can already submit messages for the program.

The Love Live! franchise has always been known for its user-participation theme, and this new anime series is no exception. Fans can look forward to seeing how their ideas will be incorporated into the show.

In conclusion, Love Live! Sunshine!! fans have something exciting to look forward to this summer with the premiere of the new anime series based on the Genjitsu no Yohane -Sunshine in the Mirror- magazine illustration series.
