It has been announced that “Meets SHIZUOKA ~ Yuru Camp△ × Love Live! Sunshine!! ~” will be held as a collaboration project between “Yuru Camp△” and “Love Live! Sunshine!!”. Set in Shizuoka, the hometown of both series, various initiatives will be carried out, accompanied by illustrations showcasing different locations.

“Yuru Camp△” is an anime based on the manga by Afro, known for its depiction of high school girls enjoying camping and its relaxed atmosphere. Since its anime adaptation in 2018, it has aired two TV series and one short anime series, with the movie “Yuru Camp△” released in 2022, all of which have been highly successful. The third TV series began airing in April 2024.

“Love Live! Sunshine!!” is the second series of the “Love Live! Project” under the theme of “fulfilling a story together,” which tells the story of nine high school girls becoming “school idols” to fulfill their dreams . It depicts the struggles and growth of the school idol group “Aqours,” formed at a school in the Uchiura area of Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture.

The project started in February 2015 with the release of the magazine “Dengeki G’s Magazine,” and continued with the broadcast of two TV anime series from 2016 to 2017, followed by the release of a completely new theatrical edition in 2019. On New Year’s Eve 2018, “Aqours” participated in the 69th NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen. As of June 2024, “Aqours” is approaching its 9th anniversary since formation, showing even more excitement.

Starting with the release of the key visual, the collaboration project “Meets SHIZUOKA ~ Yuru Camp△ × Love Live! Sunshine!! ~” will feature various initiatives involving illustrations showcasing different locations in Shizuoka.

Accompanying the announcement is the release of key visuals. Additionally, the characters visiting famous spots in Shizuoka will be depicted in illustrations by illustrator Fuyuno Kamome in the project titled “Meets SHIZUOKA ~ Scenery of Encounters ~.” The first three illustrations from the western area were unveiled.
