Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteiru Kai?

Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteiru Kai?

Welcome everyone to Love Live! Sunshine!! The second generation of Love Live! School Idol Project where a brand new school idol unit picks up where the successful and now legendary μ's left off. Say hello to Aqours, an idol unit comprising of nine Uranohoshi High students, each with their hopes and dreams and how each other bond together as one to become the newest idol group everyone will love in the same way they loved μ's since the Love Live School Idol Project began five years ago.

The name Aqours is a portmanteau for the two words "Aqua" and "Ours" but amazingly, the name truly rhymes with "aqua" in it, matching the theme for this new generation of Love Live. It was also one of the suggested names for the new school idol group that won the idol-naming poll from a certain anime magazine months ago, with 4,644 votes garnered.

Now, let's meet the members that will soon to be your favorites;

  • Chika Takami (CV: Anju Inami) - The leader of Aqours and the youngest of the three sisters. She's a second year student and her family runs an inn. She's a fan of μ's.
  • Riko Sakurauchi (CV: Rikako Aida) - Formerly from Tokyo, she now resides to Uchiura. A second year student who loves to draw and likes to stay indoors.
  • Kanan Matsuura (CV: Nanaka Suwa) - A senior student who runs a diving shop with her grandmother on a nearby island.
  • Dia Kurosawa (CV: Arisa Komiya) - A senior student and president of Uranohoshi High's student council.
  • You Watanabe (CV: Shuka Saito) - A second year student and an excellent diver fit for a swim club.
  • Yoshiko Tsushima (CV: Aika Kobayashi) - A first year student who considered to be unlucky. She prefers to be called Yohanne instead of her real name. She dislikes mikan fruits
  • Hanamaru Kunikida (CV: Kanako Takatsuki) - A first year student and a daughter of a family of shrine keepers. Although she's a member of a local choir, she loves to read and gets dizzy easily.
  • Mari Ohara (CV: Aina Suzuki) - A half-Japanese senior student who is a daughter of an Italian-American father who had his hands full with the hotel businesses. She likes to do things at her own pace.
  • Ruby Kurosawa (CV: Ai Furihata) - A first year student and a good friend of Hanamaru. She maybe prone to crying but she's good at sewing.

Well, now you know them, it's time to get to know the first song of the newest generation of Love Livers. Their debut single, Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteiru Kai?, features a much aquatic theme for Aqours and it comes with not one, not two, but three songs which is a first for Aqours. It even comes with bonus tracks where the members of Aqours are introduced. Of course, keeping up with the Love Live tradition that has been from μ's for the past five years, there's a DVD or Blu-Ray added and inside, there's a music video of Aqours' first song for you to enjoy.

Welcome to the new generation of Love Live!
