Love Live! Superstar!! is the next Love Live! series on the way, with Takahiko Kyogoku from the first Love Live! anime series at the helm. An online vote was recently held to help choose the new school idol unit’s name from a pool of 16 candidates, and the official Twitter account finally revealed the results.
