A second season of Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai (Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club) was announced during the second day of the Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club 3rd Live! School Festival: Yume no Hajimari concert on Sunday, scheduled for a 2022 broadcast. The official website revealed a teaser visual (pictured above).
The first season debuted on October 3 and concluded with 13 episodes on December 26 last year. Funimation streamed the anime in North America with subtitles. UK anime distributor Anime Limited licensed the show and simulcast it on Crunchyroll in the United Kingdom and Ireland territories.
Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai follows on a new set of idols from the Love Live! School Idol Festival ALL STARS rhythm game. This marks the third anime installment in the Love Live! franchise. A fourth installment, Love Live! Superstar!!, will begin airing this July.
Tomoyuki Kawamura (Binbougami ga!, Mitsuboshi Colors) directed the anime at Sunrise, with Jin Tanaka (Yuru Camp△, Anne Happy♪) in charge of the series composition. Takumi Yokota (Senyoku no Sigrdrifa, Nami yo Kiitekure) designed the characters.
Buried within the numerous clubs at Nijigasaki High School lies the school idol club. The club, while lacking popularity, definitely does not lack potential. During their debut performance, they were able to seize a sizable audience, along with the attention of their schoolmates Ayumu Uehara and Yuu Takasaki.
Enamored, the duo makes their way to join the club; however, they are disappointed to find out that the club had just been disbanded. Nevertheless, Ayumu does not believe that it should have ended there. Together with Yuu, they begin restoring the school idol club, hoping to recreate the idol performances that dazzled them before.
