Love Live! (ラブライブ! Rabu Raibu!?) School Idol Project is a Japanese multimedia project co-developed by ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Magazine, music label Lantis and animation studio Sunrise. The project revolves around a group of fictional school girls who become idols in order to save their school from shutting down. It launched in the August 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, and went on to produce music CDs, anime music videos, a manga adaptation, and video games. A 13-episode anime television series produced by Sunrise and directed by Takahiko Kyōgoku aired in Japan between January 6 and March 31, 2013. A second season began airing in April 2014. Both anime series are licensed in North America by NIS America.

Plot[edit]

Honoka Kōsaka is a girl who loves her school, Otonokizaka Academy. When the school is planned to be closed down due to a lack of applicants, Honoka becomes determined to save it. Learning that school idols are popular, Honoka and her friends start up a school idol group called μ's (pronounced muse) in order to attract new students.

Characters[edit]

μ's[edit]

Honoka Kōsaka (高坂 穂乃果 Kōsaka Honoka?)
Voiced by: Emi Nitta
Honoka is the main character of the series, and is a second-year student at Otonokizaka Academy. Her family works in a wagashi shop named Homura. Honoka has a cheerful personality and she never gives up on anything, to the point of usually overexerting herself. Her hobbies include swimming and collecting stickers. She is the leader of μ's, and is seen taking center position in some of the group's songs. She later succeeds Eli as student council president.
Umi Sonoda (園田 海未 Sonoda Umi?)
Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori
Umi is Honoka's classmate and childhood friend who is a member of the school's kyūdō club, in which she is quite accurate. She believes Honoka is bossy and pushy, but realizes the perks of having an adventurous friend. As the daughter of a traditional family, Umi has expertise in kendō, koto, nagauta, calligraphy, and traditional dancing.
Kotori Minami (南 ことり Minami Kotori?)
Voiced by: Aya Uchida
Kotori is Honoka's classmate and childhood friend, who is the daughter of the Otonokizaka Academy's chairwoman, whom she closely resembles. She is known for having her head in the clouds despite holding responsibility as the group's wardrobe supervisor and choreographer. She also has a really kind heart, not wanting to hurt anybody.
Nico Yazawa (矢澤 にこ Yazawa Niko?)
Voiced by: Sora Tokui
Nico is a third-year student interested in fashion, and thus acts as the group's wardrobe supervisor alongside Kotori. She grew up admiring idols and aspires to become one. However, much to her chagrin, Nico is child-like in appearance despite her age, looking much younger than the rest of the group. Within the group, she is a very good cook. Nico used to be the president of the Idol Research Club, but all of her club members left one after another because of her high standards. When Honoka and her friends ask her to have the club as μ's base of operations, she is reluctant at first, doubting how far they are willing to go to become successful idols, until she approves their effort and also joins the group.
Eli Ayase (絢瀬 絵里 Ayase Eri?)
Voiced by: Yoshino Nanjō
Eli is Otonokizaka Academy's third-year student council president, who is determined to save the school. Although she opposes Honoka's plan at first, she ends up becoming the last girl to join μ's. She is part Russian because of her grandmother, and tends to say the Russian word "хорошо" [xərɐˈʂo] (pronounced "horosho", 'good'). Eli's specialty is quilting, and her experience with ballet qualifies her as the group's choreographer. She has two brothers, but a sister named Arisa appears instead in the anime.
Nozomi Tōjō (東條 希 Tōjō Nozomi?)
Voiced by: Aina Kusuda
Nozomi is the third-year student council vice-president, and the oldest of the group. She acts as the voice of reason to Eri, to whom she is close friends with. Although she is not from that region, Nozomi speaks in Kansai dialect. Her hobby is fortune-telling and she has the habit of groping the other girls when she finds them distracted or depressed in a form of "cheering them up".
Maki Nishikino (西木野 真姫 Nishikino Maki?)
Voiced by: Pile
Maki is a first-year honor student expected to become a doctor and inherit her father's work in her parents' hospital despite being a talented singer and pianist, which leads her to refuse joining μ's at first. Maki is the main composer and vocal coach of the group.
Hanayo Koizumi (小泉 花陽 Koizumi Hanayo?)
Voiced by: Yurika Kubo
Hanayo is a first-year student interested in drawing and origami. She is referred to as Kayo, an alternate reading of the kanji in her name. Also, among the main cast, she is the best at handling children. Her catchphrase is, "Please help me, God," or a variation depending on the media. She is also a shy girl who dreamed about being an idol since she was little.
Rin Hoshizora (星空 凛 Hoshizora Rin?)
Voiced by: Riho Iida
Rin is a first-year student skilled in hurdling, association football and basketball. Her closest friend is Hanayo, who is her childhood friend. Like Honoka, Rin has a cheerful personality but loses motivation easily and is a tomboy. She also has a habit of acting like a cat.

Other characters[edit]

Kotori's mother (ことりの母 Kotori no Haha?)
Voiced by: Noriko Hidaka
Kotori's mother, who is the principal of Otonokizaka Academy.
Yukiho Kōsaka (高坂 雪穂 Kōsaka Yukiho?)
Voiced by: Nao Tōyama
Honoka's younger sister who often does embarrassing things in private.
Arisa Ayase (絢瀬 亜里沙 Ayase Arisa?)
Voiced by: Ayane Sakura
Eli's younger sister who is a big fan of μ's. Having mostly lived abroad due to her being part-Russian, she is unfamiliar with many Japanese customs. Like her sister, she tends to say the Russian word "хорошо" [xərɐˈʂo] ('good').

Production[edit]

Since the first issue of ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Magazine was published, the editors of the magazine have hosted reader participation games whose development is directly influenced by the people who read the magazine. The project was first announced in the July 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, which revealed that the magazine would be collaborating with the anime studio Sunrise and the music label Lantis to co-produce the project.[1] The project officially began with the August 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, which introduced the story, characters, and a more detailed explanation of the project. The original plan for the story was written by Sakurako Kimino, who also writes the short stories for Love Live! featured in Dengeki G's Magazine. Original character design and illustrations are provided by Yūhei Murota.

Starting in August 2010, online mobile phone popularity contests have periodically been held to rank the characters, which influences the positions of the idols in the anime music videos produced by Sunrise. For example, the idol who ranks first in a given contest will be in the center position in the front row in the music video that follows. Other polls are used to determine different aspects of the idols, such as hairstyles and costumes.[2] Starting with the November 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, readers were polled to determine the name of the idols' group. After the editors narrowed it down to the five most popular names, readers were polled for a final time, ultimately choosing the name μ's. A similar polling system was used to determine the names of the three mini units Printemps, BiBi, and Lily White.

Media[edit]

Manga[edit]

A manga adaptation, written by Sakurako Kimino and illustrated by Arumi Tokita, began serialization in the January 2012 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine. The first tankōbon volume was released on September 27, 2012,[3] and two volumes have been released as of June 27, 2013.[4]

Anime[edit]

A 13-episode anime television series, produced by Sunrise and directed by Takahiko Kyōgoku, aired in Japan on Tokyo MX between January 6 and March 31, 2013 and was simulcast by Crunchyroll.[5] The opening theme is "Bokura wa Ima no Naka de" (僕らは今のなかで?, lit. "We're Living in the Moment") and the ending theme is "Kitto Seishun ga Kikoeru" (きっと青春が聞こえる?, lit. "Surely Our Youth Can Be Heard"); both are performed by μ's (Emi Nitta, Aya Uchida, Suzuko Mimori, Yoshino Nanjō, Pile, Riho Iida, Aina Kusuda, Yurika Kubo and Sora Tokui). An original video animation episode was released on November 27, 2013.[6] A second season began airing on Tokyo MX from April 6, 2014, also airing on TV Aichi, Yomiuri TV, and BS11,[7] and is being simulcast by Crunchyroll. The opening theme is "Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki" (それは僕たちの奇跡 That Is Our Miracle?) and "Donna Toki mo Zutto" (どんなときもずっと Always No Matter What?); both are performed by μ's. Both anime series are licensed by NIS America for release in North America.[8][9]

Video games[edit]

A free rhythm game, titled Love Live! School Idol Festival, was developed by KLab and released by Bushiroad for iOS devices in Japan on April 15, 2013.[10] A version for Android was also released. The game will also be localized in North America, as well as China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea. A series of three rhythm-action video games developed by Dingo Inc.,[11] titled Love Live! School Idol Paradise, will be released in July 2014 for the PlayStation Vita.[12] The three games will be released as Vol. 1 Printemps Unit, Vol.2 BiBi Unit and Vol.3 Lily White Unit.

Music[edit]

Aside from individual and duet singles, the nine idols of μ's are divided into three mini units with their own singles themselves: Printemps, BiBi, and Lily White. Printemps is composed of Honoka, Kotori and Hanayo; BiBi is composed of Eri, Maki and Niko; and Lily White is composed of Umi, Rin and Nozomi. Each of μ's' singles was released with an anime music video.[13]
