Back in April, Nippon Ichi Software America announced they would be commissioning an English dub for Seasons 1 and 2 of Love Live! School Idol Project. This follows a small number of other English dub projects by the publisher including Toradora! and A Lull in the Sea.
NIS America have recently announced that pre-orders have now opened for their Standard Edition release of Season 1 and Premium Edition set for Season 2. Both of these sets will include the English dub, with the latter including a number of additional “Premium Edition” extras including a hardcover slipcase and full colour artbook.
Both sets will be released on February 14 2016, with both being exclusively available on Blu-ray.
About Season 1
The traditional school Otonokizaka High is situated between the three towns of Akihabara, Kanda, and Jimbocho. This school is also in imminent danger of closing. Because of this crisis, the second year student Honoka Kosaka takes center stage with eight others to do something about it! “To protect the school we love so much, we have to do all we can… We have to become school idols! By becoming idols and advertising how great our school is to the world, more students will want to apply!”
About Season 2
At the intersection of three cities—Akihabara, Kanda, and Jinbocho—the traditional Otonokizaka High was facing a crisis of being closed down. Second-year student, Honoka Kosaka, decided to become a school idol, a trend that has been growing in popularity, in order to increase the number of students applying for her school. With her childhood friends, Kotori Minami and Umi Sonoda, they combined their efforts to form the group, μ’s. A while later, Maki Nishikino, a songwriter, Hanayo Koizumi, who always dreamed of being a school idol, Rin Hoshizora, Hanayo’s friend, and Nico Yazawa, the president of the Idol Study Club, joined the group, all with the aim of entering the school idol festival, Love Live. Additionally, Eli Ayase, the student council president, and Nozomi Tojo, the student council vice president, joined μ’s, bringing the group to a total of nine members. After overcoming many problems, ranging from the closing of the school to Kotori’s study-abroad incident to μ’s going on hiatus, what will the girls aim for next!?
