If you’re unfamiliar with Love Live!, it’s a super-popular multimedia franchise including anime manga, light novels, and music.
It focuses on bands of school idols like the aforementioned μ’s, Aqours, and Saint Snow as they struggle to achieve success usually starting from nothing. You know the plot.
The franchise debuted in 2012 with a manga written by Sakurako Kimino and illustrated by Arumi Tokita published on Dengeki G’s Magazine, and then it sparked multiple anime series, movies, and more.
