Nijigasaki Highschool is a school in Odaiba, Tokyo which is popular for its diverse majors and free environment. They support student clubs and activities in order to increase the students’ creativity. There are plenty of clubs and within them lies the school idol club. While having their afternoon tea in a park Ayumu Uehara and Yuu Takasaki witness the debut of the idol club and are hooked on enrolling. To their utter disappointment, they realise that the club is disbanded. Ayumu, the spontaneous one, refuses to give up and they both reach the conclusion of reopening the idol club and pitching people on joining them. They decide to bring in the former members and prepare for a performance as beautiful as the one which brought them to the club.
Takasaki became the group manager and composer and joined with other talented students. They take part in various activities and advertise their club with creative performances. After the success of the first season, the second season was released on April 2 with new characters and their well-made storyline and is currently on the list of popular recent anime and on everyone’s watchlist. Unlike the other love live series which are fueled by stakes, responsibility and mission type goals, what makes Nijigasaki high school idol club unique to the love live franchise is its free approach to the audience. It focuses on the girls’ view on what makes them want to be a school idol and what is a school idol. They are not exactly the typical idol group who work together for everything but a group of girls having the same dreams sticking together and advertising their solo selves while working together and competing with each other. The description of the anime and its aim instantly make you want to watch the anime for its authenticity.
