Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club [lower-alpha 1] is a Japanese multimedia spin-off project from the Love Live! series and its game series Love Live! School Idol Festival . It was first introduced in 2017 as "Perfect Dream Project" and was initially created as part of the game Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars . [1] Unlike μ's and Aqours, the previous groups from the franchise, they are a group of individual school idols who compete with each other while working together to keep their school idol club alive. Together, they are referred as the Nijigasaki High School Idol Club. [lower-alpha 2]

Contents

They are featured in the spin-off game Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars along with μ's and Aqours. They also appear as SR rarity cards in Love Live! School Idol Festival. [2] [3] The girls were initially split up into groups of three to begin activities in three different apps before their addition to the game: Dengeki Online website (Kasumi, Karin, Setsuna), Famitsu App website (Ayumu, Ai, Rina), and the game's official website (Emma, Shizuku, Kanata). Each place is working as a separate room or branch office for the Nijigasaki High School. [4] Later, they were officially split into three subunits: DiverDiva, A・Zu・Na, and QU4RTZ. An anime television series adaptation by Sunrise aired from October 3 to December 26, 2020. A second season has been announced and is set to premiere in 2022.

Plot

Nijigasaki High School (虹ヶ咲学園, Nijigasaki Gakuen) is located in Odaiba, Tokyo. The school is popular due to its free school style and diverse majors. [5] The story centers on the members of the school idol club in Nijigasaki, who work together as solo idols and their attempt to prevent the club from being abolished. As the story progresses, more girls begin to participate in the club's activities.

Characters

Where appropriate, plot descriptions mentioned below refer to the story in Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars . Other parts of the franchise, such as the manga and animation series, feature some variations in the storyline.
