Your chance to cheer for your favorite school idols in person is coming this summer, when the nine ladies of Aqours appear as part of this year’s Anisong World Matsuri at Anime Expo. And if you want to be decked out for the concert — or if you can’t make it and just want some shiny Aqours swag — you may want to check out Premium Bandai’s website. The company will soon be offering international shipping for merch from the Love Live! Sunshine!! Aqours 2nd LoveLive! HAPPY PARTY TRAIN TOUR.
Premium Bandai, in association with sites like Buyee and From Japan, will be making it easier for fans outside Japan to collect the cool items released as party of the tour. Items include mascot charms, coin purses, fans, ticket holder lanyards, happi coats, and a concert light that flashes in all nine of the idols’ image colors.
A full listing of available items can be seen on the Premium Bandai website.
The Aqours team is moving into the second phase of Love Live! Sunshine!!, which will include a second season of anime, another tour, and more CDs.
