Buried within the numerous clubs at Nijigasaki High School lies the school idol club. The club, while lacking popularity, definitely does not lack potential. During their debut performance, they were able to seize a sizable audience, along with the attention of their schoolmates Ayumu Uehara and Yuu Takasaki.

Enamored, the duo makes their way to join the club; however, they are disappointed to find out that the club had just been disbanded. Nevertheless, Ayumu does not believe that it should have ended there. Together with Yuu, they begin restoring the school idol club, hoping to recreate the idol performances that dazzled them before.

Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai shines its spotlight over the reformed school idol club as they recruit both former members of the club alongside newcomers. Taking the first step toward their dreams, how will these girls achieve idol stardom?

There are few anime as equally enjoyable as they are remarkable. And there are fewer still as thoroughly pleasant as Sunrise's latest foray into the world of school idols.

Love Live: Nijigasaki is a wholesome reminder of why I enjoy anime, and of why the slice-of-life genre is so captivating.

Admittedly, after the middling and sometimes frustrating experience that was Sunshine, I wasn't too sure what to expect from this year's offering of Love Live. While I was a big fan of the original series (Nico is my favourite character in all of anime), Sunshine missed the mark in many regards. It forgot what made Love read more

“The tiny melodies blend together (Our Colors)
Let’s paint this arch, now. It resonates throughout the city (reaching for far blue sky!)” - lyrics from Nijiiro Passions!

This show came as quite the pleasant surprise. Given the nature of spinoffs, it’s not unusual to believe that they rarely ever live up to or exceed the quality of their original counterparts and tend to fall short. But that is not the case here. Along with having several noteworthy changes and improvements, this installment to the Love Live franchise came in as something incredibly refreshing and serves as an excellent starting point for the girls of Nijigasaki.

Love Live Nijigaku represents the next stage in the evolution of the best ongoing idol franchise. It takes everything we know and love about the series to new heights and breathes new life into the Love Live series.

Disclaimer, when it comes to idol shows, I am very easy to please. Cute girls, good songs and good performances are really all I look for. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised to see how much more Nijigaku contained. If you’ve seen sunshine and SIP, which you most likely have if you’re here, you’ll recall how fluffy and cutesy those shows were. While we had the drama of read more

„Never get dragged into Love Live! idol hell or your wallet will hate you.”
- everyone who has already spent too much on Love Live!

After the Aqours movie "Over the Rainbow" (Love Live! Sunshine!!) in 2019 we finally get a Love Live! continuation with a new setting. All those fans who are already familiar with the Love Live! mobile games know what Nijigasaki is about. Even if the main goal is not the Love Live! competition this time, we feel that our girls are doing their best to make everyone happy. Lean back, relax and just enjoy the wonderful world and music of read more
