The official website of Love Live! Sunshine!! anime series has added the Philippines the list of Asian countries that will live screen the upcoming musical event Aqours First Love Live! ~Step! ZERO to ONE~ this month.

The information has been confirmed to Anime Pilipinas by the representative of SM Cinema.


According to the representative, the live screening will happen at Cinema 3 of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City, which is coincidentally the venue of Final Love Live! live viewing last year.

Ticket prices will be announced at a later time, because of the ongoing discussions regarding the items that will be given away to the live screening attendees.

There are also plans for selling merchandises during the event, but the items may be very limited in quantity.
