Many of our otaku readers will be familiar with Love Live!, the huge universe and fandom that revolves around a cute group of school idols.
Even if you aren’t a hardcore Love Liver, you’re probably vaguely familiar with the project.
In Love Live!, a group of high school girls form a pop idol group to make their school famous and save it from being closed down. After the group, “Muse,” save the school, they compete with other schools all over the country in the ultimate school idol competition.
It has an anime, manga, game, movie, and multiple books… it’s one of those rare fandoms that have such a huge following that people of all generations and countries are hooked on it.
Some people may know it for fun music game “School idol festival” (sukufes for short),
