2nd Season

At the intersection of three cities—Akihabara, Kanda, and Jinbocho—the traditional Otonokizaka High was facing a crisis of being closed down. Second-year student, Honoka Kosaka, decided to become a school idol, a trend that has been growing in popularity, in order to increase the number of students applying for her school. With her childhood friends, Kotori Minami and Umi Sonoda, they combined their efforts to form the group, μ's.

A while later, Maki Nishikino, a songwriter, Hanayo Koizumi, who always dreamed of being a school idol, Rin Hoshizora, Hanayo's friend, and Nico Yazawa, the president of the Idol Study Club, joined the group, all with the aim of entering the school idol festival, Love Live.

Additionally, Eli Ayase, the student council president, and Nozomi Tojo, the student council vice president, joined μ's, bringing the group to a total of nine members. After overcoming many problems, ranging from the closing of the school to Kotori's study-abroad incident to μ's going on hiatus, what will the girls aim for next!?

Honoka Kosaka

Voiced by: Emi Nitta
Honoka is a second year high school student and the founder of μ's. Her key characteristics are that she is always seen with a smile on her face and that she is full of energy. Whimsy and intuition dictate many of her choices, but once she decides on something, she races toward her goal without any hesitation. Even if things look grim, she overcomes such times with super positive thinking. She is the engine that drives μ's forward.

Eli Ayase

Voiced by: Yoshino Nanjo
Eli is a third year high school student. She is the student council president, and is a quarter Russian. She is clear-headed, has unparalleled physical flexibility, and can do almost everything at an above-average level. Even at school, she is very popular, and is admired for having a strong sense of responsibility.

Kotori Minami

Voiced by: Aya Uchida
Kotori is a second-year high school student and Honoka's very first friend. These childhood friends have been together since kindergarten. In direct contrast with Honoka, she has a soft and quiet demeanor befitting of her honors student status. While she may be quiet, she is a strong and confident girl.

Umi Sonoda

Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori
Umi is a second year high school student. She was brought up in the household of a dance school headmaster, which has helped her to become a graceful girl with an imperious air. She has practiced archery since her childhood and has flawless etiquette. She is the type of girl who is hard on those around her, but is especially hard on herself. She does not like doing anything remotely criminal, and abhors laziness. Honoka and Kotori are her childhood friends.

Rin Hoshizora

Voiced by: Riho Iida
Rin is a first year high school student who is quite athletic and optimistic. She would rather take action and keep moving instead of sit and think. She will participate in anything, as long as it seems to be fun. She finds joy in helping and looking after others, especially her good friend, Hanayo. No matter what anyone says, she always gives practice her all.

Maki Nishikino

Voiced by: Pile
Maki is a first year high school student whose parents run a large, successful hospital. She is known among her peers as being an outstanding singer who is also rather adept at playing the piano. She is high-handed to the point of arrogance and has difficulty expressing her feelings. She is quite courageous, never hesitating to incite an argument, even with her upperclassmen. Even so, she has a side that she keeps hidden as best she can—she gets lonely very easily.

Nozomi Tojo

Voiced by: Aina Kusuda
Nozomi is a third year high school student, and the student council vice president. In direct contrast to Eli, she has an easygoing personality and has a unique manner of speaking, due to her relaxed-sounding Kansai dialect. She and Eli make a good combination, with Nozomi acting as Eli's foil. She has a motherly heart, leading others to think that she is the most mature of all the members. Although she seems nonchalant, she can be surprisingly conniving.

Hanayo Koizumi

Voiced by: Yurika Kubo
Even though Hanayo is a first year high school student, she struggles more than others to stand out in class due to her meek personality. She lacks any traces of self-confidence and tends to give up on everything she attempts. She adores μ's, so she decides to join the school idol group along with her reluctant friends, Rin and Maki. She gets along well with Rin, and they quickly grow inseparable. She is perfectly happy eating a bowl of nothing but white rice.

Nico Yazawa

Voiced by: Sora Tokui
Nico is a third year high school student. She works hard to become an idol day in and day out—a true idol otaku. As the others' upperclassman working hard to become an idol, Nico often bosses Honoka and her friends around. While she may talk big, Nico does mess up a lot, making her an unexpectedly klutzy girl. Her rather forced catch phrase is "Nico-Nico-Ni!"
