Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club is directed by Tomoyuki Kawamura and features animation production by Bandai Namco Filmworks. Crunchyroll currently streams the first two seasons of the series and describes the story as follows:
Nijigasaki High School is known for their diverse subjects and the freedom they give to students. Second-year student Yu Takasaki has been turned on to the charms of school idols, so she knocks on the door of the School Idol Club with her friend, Ayumu Uehara.
Sometimes friends, sometimes rivals, the members of this club each contribute their own thoughts and motivations to the group.
