Development of Love Live! Superstar !!
The franchise announced a separate anime adaptation in addition to Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai in January 2020, which features a new set of characters who are all freshmen at a new school that was once demolished. The school is located between the Omotesando, Harajuku and Aoyama neighborhoods of Tokyo. Additionally, an audition for one of the lead actors was held on March 12, 2020, but was postponed due to COVID-19. Atsushi Saitou serves as character design adapting the style of the series' original character designer, Yuuhei Murota. The name of the school was decided through fan votes and concluded in May 2020 with Yuigaoka Girls High School (結 ヶ 丘 女子 高等学校, Yuigaoka Joshi Kōtou Gakkou). The names of the main characters were also announced: Kanon Shibuya, Tang Keke, Chisato Arashi, Sumire Heanna and Ren Hazuki. The name of the project, Love Live! Superstar !! was announced in July through the exclusive Love Live! Days. In September, the group's name, "Liella!" He was also chosen through fan votes. The name was chosen from 16 options that fans could vote on. The name "Liella!" comes from a combination of a French word "lier" which means "to connect", which is the same as Yui (結) in the name of the school in Japanese, and "bright", which means "inner glow". Behind the group's name are the feelings of hope that today's little stars who have their own brilliance will one day become superstars.
