Tatsuya Shiba and his sister Miyuki Shiba begin their first day at the National Magic University Affiliated First High School. Students are divided into their classes by their test scores. Students with the best grades are sorted into the First Course, the “Bloom” class while students with poor test score are designated as “Weeds” and placed in the Second Course. Miyuki who scored the top of her entrance exam is chosen as the class rep while Tatsuya, despite having the best score on the written exam, scored poorly in the practical exam and is placed in the Second Course.

Voice actress Saori Hayami, who is known for her role as Saki Morimi from Eden of the East is playing Miyuki Shiba while Tatsuya Shiba is voiced by Yuichi Nakamura, Fairy Tail’s Gray Fulbuster.

“Otonokizaka High School is planning to close within three years. However, nine female students come together with one thing in mind— to form a pop idol group to revive the school’s popularity and keep it from shutting down. ‘In order to protect our beloved school, there’s only one thing we can do...become pop stars!’

Their goal is simple: Become an overnight sensation and use their nationwide media exposure to promote their school and bring in a wave of new students to the ailing area. A simple but solid plan, they figure. Naturally, they’re nervous and wonder if this plan can really succeed, but for better or worse their new journey has begun... ”

There was an idol anime that was real popular, so they are going to keep making them until they start losing money.

Oh, wait, the attraction to anime production committees or the attraction to the audience?

For that part of anime fandom that likes watching Cute girls do Cute things in a Cute manner, Cute-Cubed for short, watching them be a cute idol group seems to offer Cute-Cubed opportunities. And for the part of anime fandom that likes to to fantasize about being in an idol group, it offers a projection fantasy.

And going back to the attraction to anime production committees, there's two demographics in one show! Perfect! Why, I wouldn't be surprised if next there's going to be a card player plays card game show that's mixed together with a magical girl show!

The first season of Love Live was not available for me and the page still says "unavailable in your region". Will the first season open up for me or can I only watch the second season?

Edit: Yay! I can watch the first season now. Thank you Crunchyroll!

In before the inevitable 'why isn't this series in the UK?' comments about Kawaisou from people who don't realise that it is (just not on Crunchyroll).
