A second season of Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai (Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club) was announced during the second day of the Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club 3rd Live! School Festival: Yume no Hajimari concert on Sunday, scheduled for a 2022 broadcast. The official website revealed a teaser visual (pictured above).

The first season debuted on October 3 and concluded with 13 episodes on December 26 last year. Funimation streamed the anime in North America with subtitles. UK anime distributor Anime Limited licensed the show and simulcast it on Crunchyroll in the United Kingdom and Ireland territories.

Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai follows on a new set of idols from the Love Live! School Idol Festival ALL STARS rhythm game. This marks the third anime installment in the Love Live! franchise. A fourth installment, Love Live! Superstar!!, will begin airing this July.

Tomoyuki Kawamura (Binbougami ga!, Mitsuboshi Colors) directed the anime at Sunrise, with Jin Tanaka (Yuru Camp△, Anne Happy♪) in charge of the series composition. Takumi Yokota (Senyoku no Sigrdrifa, Nami yo Kiitekure) designed the characters.

Synopsis
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? [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Didn't expect Nijigasaki to have a second season, after the ending of the first i was already satisfied enough, and i like these group of girls a lot, not as much as μ's but even more than Aqours. Considering this is actually going to happen, i hope that at least Shioriko appears. I don't play SIFAS but i still have some basic informations about the story from chapter 20 onwards... all in all, i openly welcomed Nijigasaki girls since their discovery in SIF mobile game and their anime was the first time i watched a series of Love Live during its first broadcast. I have good expectations on Liella, also.

I won’t expect anything if Takesaki Yu will become school idol member for next season

Best news ever!!!

I was really worried that be might not get a season 2 since Liella was a thing already but I guess they can do both just fine. One year for each one seems good.

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE MY NIJI GIRLS AGAIN!!

More Love Live is good.

I'm not done with the 1st season yet. Just taking my time.

hopefully the songs that were worked on season 2 from the Tokimeki Runners album :)

Please let Shioriko appear this season. I'm going to be so upset if they cut her out. :(

The chances are smaller for these two, but it would be nice to see Lanzhu and Mia as well.

Can't wait to see more from my Queen Setsuna! ❤️❤️❤️

New DBZ and new Love Live in the same day. Gee, sure hope they never die :') xD

@RobertBobert
I made a DBZ "joke," close enough I guess.


Well, at least if every season of Love Live lasted the same 150-250 episodes, then it would be easier for me to get attached to it, lol.

Bare in mind Love Live! Nijigasaki story is based on the LL! All Star game compare to previous two, School Idol Project & Sunshine that are original source..so we can predict what will happen in season 2 of Nijigasaki (you know, the fang girl, China & American) if they do the story just like in the game, unless they change it..also, Takasaki Yu will have more bigger role this time as their song composer..

Really thought this show accomplished everything it needed to during the season it aired in but I guess it doesn't hurt to get another season.

Yay!!! I was waiting for this announcement!

Not too surprising considering how popular the franchise is but pleasing nonetheless.

At first I wanted to joke about Gundam, but then I remembered that this is literally the Sunrise franchise.
