Love Live! Superstar!! Synopsis:
Everyone has a dream they strive to achieve, and so does the musically talented Kanon Shibuya. However, due to her stage fright, Kanon fails to make it into Yuigaoka Girls’ High School’s music program and instead ends up in the general curriculum. Even though Kanon makes the conscious decision to quit music altogether, her classmate Tang Keke rekindles Kanon’s passion for music with her own: a passion for school idols.
Although Keke and Kanon try to form a school idol group, their effort meets strong objections from Ren Hazuki, the daughter of the school’s director. Even so, the girls soon visit the director, who allows them to set up their school idol club under one condition—they must win first place at the Yoyogi School Idol Festival.
The resilience of these aspiring idols is put to the test as they face the challenges that come their way. Throughout their journey, the girls make new friends and meet new members that join them to become the dazzling idols others can only imagine.
Love Live! Superstar!! Synopsis n.2:
Yuigaoka Girls High School is a newly established school that lies between the Omotesando, Harajuku, and Aoyama neighborhoods of Tokyo. The story centers on its first batch of students. With no history, no upperclassmen or alumni, and no reputation, it is a school full of unknowns. Five girls, among them Kanon Shibuya, have a fateful encounter with school idols.
Kanon decides, “I love singing. I want to make something come true with song!” Many feelings converge upon a star that has only started to grow. The future is blank and full of possibilities for these girls, and their story that everyone will make possible has only just begun. Soar with your wings, our Love Live.

Development of Love Live! Superstar!!
The franchise announced a separate anime adaptation other than Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club in January 2020, which features a new set of characters, who are all first-year students in a newly reopened school originally on the verge of demolition. The school lies between the Omotesando, Harajuku, and Aoyama neighborhoods of Tokyo. In addition, an audition for one of the main cast was held on March 12, 2020, but was postponed due to COVID-19.
Atsushi Saitō serves as the character design adapting the style of the series’ original character designer Yūhei Murota. The school name was decided through fans’ votes and concluded in May 2020 with Yuigaoka Girls High School (結ヶ丘女子高等学校, Yuigaoka Joshi Kōtō Gakkō). The main characters’ names were also announced: Kanon Shibuya, Tang Keke, Chisato Arashi, Sumire Heanna, and Ren Hazuki.
The project’s name, Love Live! Superstar!! was announced in July through the series’ exclusive magazine Love Live! Days. In September, the school idol group’s name, “Liella!” was also chosen through fans’ votes. The name was chosen among 16 options that fans could vote for.
The name “Liella!” comes from a combination of the French word “lier” which means “to connect”, which is the same as Yui (結) in the school’s name in Japanese, and “brilliance“, which means an “inner glow”. Behind the group’s name lies the feelings of the hope that the small stars of today who have their own brilliance will become superstars someday.
The cast of the five main characters was later revealed in December 2020: Sayuri Date, Liyuu, Nako Misaki, Naomi Payton, and Nagisa Aoyama. Date and Aoyama are members who passed the open audition that was held earlier in the year. The group’s debut single, “Hajimari wa Kimi no Sora” (始まりは君の空) released on April 7, 2021. The single includes an animation PV and released in two versions—each with different B-sides: “Minna de Kanaeru Monogatari” (みんなで叶える物語) and “Watashi o Kanaeru Monogatari” (私を叶える物語).

Reviews of Love Live! Superstar!!
Reviews of Love Live! Superstar!!:
Love like from the outside looks like a long and confusing franchise to get into but whether you are an old fan, a current fan, or are completely new, here’s my reasoning why I think you should give this season a try:
Firstly, I would like to state that you do not have to watch any of the other seasons to watch this, it’s a completely new story with completely new characters. This is the same for the other seasons but I think this one stands out as a good starting point due to it being the future of the franchise.
Art and animation of Love Live! Superstar!!
The art in this season is especially amazing. All the background environments are drawn with so much detail and it really immerses you in the setting. I was a bit skeptical about this since Love Live! Superstar!! has been using the school setting for four seasons now but this time the environment has a really cozy and unique feel to it and overall really stands out compared to any high school set anime.
Next, the animation is so fluid, especially for a slice-of-life style show. The character expressions are so exaggerated that it makes it so much more amusing to watch. You can really tell they have thrown their budget into making this season look good and it has paid off.
Characters of Love Live! Superstar!!
Compared to the other seasons, they have cut the main cast down to just five members. This has already allowed each character individually to get more screen time and if the anime continues on like this it shouldn’t have any problems with handling character development going forward.
The soundtrack of Love Live! Superstar!!
All of the jpop style idol songs they have released so far have been great. The music for the opening and the ending is especially nice, as well as the visuals for both. In contrast to this, however, there is also some really nice background piano music in some more emotional scenes that hits the tone really well.
Story of Love Live! Superstar!!
I’m not going to lie and say the story is some kind of incredible masterpiece. It looks like it’s going to be your high school girls wanting to become famous idols shenanigans.
Enjoyment of Love Live! Superstar!!
You may have looked at my score and thought I was mad. After only 4 episodes rating something a 10 but I think the enjoyment I got from this anime already made it worth this score. There are so many moments where I was just laughing so much at the weird stuff going on and it’s overall just very lighthearted and entertaining.
Voice acting of Love Live! Superstar!!
A big part of Love Live! Superstar!! is the culture behind the voice actors. I am nowhere near an expert on this but I can say that so far all the voice actors have done an amazing job.
The voices that stand out the most are obviously the main girls and at first, you may look at their lack of roles and be suspicious but there is absolutely nothing to worry about. The voices for all the characters fit perfectly and they convey the emotions of the character extremely well, on top of having nice singing voices.
In conclusion, I think you should invest your time in this anime or at least give the first episode a try and if you enjoy it, you will probably enjoy the rest. I understand it won’t be for everyone but for the few that like this kind of stuff, this one already has stood out a lot to me.
