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.
