NIS America has confirmed they have licensed the second season of Love Live! School Idol Project for North America. The series has started streaming on Crunchyroll. This is not that surprising as the series has gained a good deal of popularity internationally. I liked the first season but felt it had room to go further and really differentiate itself from the other anime of this type, so I’ll be checking it out at some point to see if it reaches its full potential.

NIS has yet to announce a home video release for the first season, which is long overdue as the series aired over a year ago. Hopefully with this confirmation that they’re continuing on with the streaming of the series a DVD or Blu-ray confirmation isn’t far off!

Santa Ana, CA (April 7, 2014) – NIS America is thrilled to announce its acquisition of Love Live! School Idol Project (2nd Season) for the North American market. The title is now available for viewing on Crunchyroll and a retail release is also planned, with launch details to be announced at a future date. For more information on streaming the show, visit Crunchyroll.

About the show:

Otonokizaka High School is planning to close within three years. However, nine female students come together with one thing in mind— to form a pop idol group to revive the school’s popularity and keep it from shutting down. “In order to protect our beloved school, there’s only one thing we can do…become pop stars!” Their goal is simple: Become an overnight sensation and use their nationwide media exposure to promote their school and bring in a wave of new students to the ailing area. A simple but solid plan, they figure. Naturally, they’re nervous and wonder if this plan can really succeed, but for better or worse their journey continues…
