Hachigatsu and Love Live are both about a group of high school girls coming together to form a more unorthodox club and all the challenges that come with it; in Love Live it is school idols and in Hachigatsu it is girls baseball. Similar tropes, similar personalities amongst the girls, similar drama you name it. Formulaic wise it is K-On part 500.
