Name: Love Live! Sunshine!! Duo/Trio Collection CD
Release Date: 2017-08-02 (Wednesday)
Price: 1700 yen (without tax)
Contents: 4 new songs and drama tracks
Twilight Tiger (Chika & Kanan) These childhood friends become tigers, shining in the morning sun—!
The costume image for the childhood friend combo of Chika and Kanan is Twilight Tiger! Imagine what kind of costume could incorporate the tiger’s distinctive colors and patterns alongside the gallantry and power the concept evokes.
Inferno Phoenix (Dia & Ruby) The sisters—clad in crimson flames—take off!
Phoenixes, reborn from hellfire, have symbolized destruction and reincarnation from time immemorial. The concept suggests the sound of energetic rock music, but how will the Kurosawa sisters’ costumes incorporate the deep crimson and flames of this image—!?
Unicorn Blizzard (You & Yoshiko) “You & Angel” become a silver-white blizzard!
A silver blizzard envelops the figure of a sparkling white beast. It gives the sense that those who approach it will freeze to death, and suggests a harsh, severe outlook on the world. Think about these two people obsessed with distinctive clothing: You, the uniform enthusiast, and Yoshiko, the fallen-angel fashionista. With this concept, what in the world will their costumes look like—!?
Hurricane Blossom (Riko & Hanamaru & Mari) The sounds of this balanced trio reverberate from under the cherry blossoms—
Hurricane Blossom was chosen as the image for this well-balanced trio composed of one person from each year. This concept conveys the beauty and melancholy of flowers scattering in a storm of cherry blossoms. You can definitely expect costumes that reflect the elegance and fragility of maidenhood ♪
(Warning: this was done quickly, my Japanese isn’t great, and my translation leans towards being liberal… hopefully it gets the point across correctly!)
Could I please get wallpapers of the Yukata Hanamaru and the recent Festival Umi, both unidolized and idolized with a night/starry background like in the Yukata URs? Sorry for the long request, tell me if you can't find the Umi I'm talking about, and thank you in advance!
