Synopsis of Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai
Buried within the many clubs of Nijigasaki High School is the Idol Club. The club, while lacking in popularity, is definitely not without potential. During their debut performance, they were able to capture a sizable audience, along with the attention of fellow members Ayumu Uehara and Yuu Takasaki.
Delighted, the duo make their way to join the club; however, they are disappointed to learn that it has just been disbanded. However, Ayumu doesn’t think things should end there, so together with Yuu they begin to restore the school’s idol club, hoping to recreate the performances that once dazzled them. Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai highlights the reformed idol club as they recruit the two former club members along with other newcomers. Taking the first step towards their dreams, how will these girls achieve stardom in the idol world?
