Chika Takami, a self-proclaimed normal girl, has never been involved in any clubs and lacked any notable talents. However, after a visit to Tokyo, she discovers a stage where even an ordinary girl like her could shine—the world of school idols. Inspired by the former superstar school idol group μ’s, Chika is determined to start her own school idol club in her seaside hometown at Uranohoshi Girl’s High School. But even before gathering any students to join the group, the aspiring school idol finds her greatest obstacle to be student council president Dia Kurosawa who stands firmly against the creation of the club.

Just when it seems there is no hope, Chika meets Riko Sakurauchi, a transfer student from Otonokizaka High School, home of μ’s. Somewhat shy but a talented piano player, Chika believes her to be a promising recruit, though convincing her to join is easier said than done. In spite of that, Chika chooses to charge forward and overcome the obstacles keeping her from forming a school idol group that shines as bright as the nine that came before her.

Where do I start with this review? Hmm… First thing first you should watch Love Live! before getting into Love Live! Sunshine! with that being said lets starts the review.

Love Live! Sunshine! is about high school girls who want to become idols. They form an idol group which is inspired by the idol group “μ” the characters from last season. I enjoyed this season more than the ones before and the movie put together. I liked the characters personalities more. It wasn’t as silly as the first Love Live! season. I really liked the story, the character’s interactions and dynamic. Not to mention the fact that they were from a small island, made the show more interesting in a way.

I really liked how the story built up. I also liked the way the characters came together. Not to mention, I loved how realistic the story was. However, the anime was just good… If you decide to watch it, I can assure you that you’ll enjoy it and have fun with it. If you decide not to watch it… you would be okay.

Overall Rate: 7/10
