The YouTube channel, Team ONIBE, published the translation of the presentation video of the character Sumire Heanna, of the new multimedia project of the Love Live! Franchise, which is titled Love Live! Superstar !!. The original video was posted in Japan on January 15.
Hehehe… It’s finally my turn! It’s okay! The heroine always comes near the end. You already know my name, of course… Heanna Sumire. Yes, that “Sumire”. I’ve put my show business activities on hold to focus on my private and school life, but now that I’ve entered high school, I ended up returning to the stage as a school idol! My dreams, of course, don’t stop here. My name will be known throughout the country, no, the universe, as a charismatic and galactic level school idol! Oh, I also stream, so please follow me. Galaxy!
