‘Love Live! Sunshine!!’ Fantasy Spin-Off Featuring Yoshiko Gets Anime

A chuunibyou has got to be one of the most annoying characters of any high school-themed anime, but they also add the extra spice and comedy that the story might be lacking.

Love Live! Sunshine!! is not spared from having such a character, and this news is all about it.

To explain it better, a chuunibyou is basically a teenager who is convinced that they have superpowers. Remember when you used to think you were a Saiyan or shinobi? It’s precisely that but as a teenager.

Love Live! Sunshine!! is here with a spin-off series that reimagines the chuunibyou character Yoshiko Tsushima in her fantasy land. The series is titled ‘Genjitsu no Yohane: Sunshine in the Mirror’ and is set for a 2023 release.

The story follows Yoshiko as Yohane, a fortune teller in the mythical land of Numazu, a harbor town surrounded by sea and mountains. Yohane is the kind of girl who never fits in with the crowd and doesn’t like to follow the rules.

She sets out on a journey in the fantasy world to find the place she truly belongs and is accompanied by various companions. These companions are members of Aqours, reimagined in different roles like a fairy, magician, and more.

According to the teaser, ‘it is a story no one knows, about a girl everyone knows.’ The whole thing is Yoshiko’s fantasy world becoming a reality since she’s a character who deserves that.

Moreover, the franchise has also revealed a key visual featuring all the characters for the upcoming anime series. Their cast from the original series will be returning for the spin-off anime too.
