Hello, everyone!

Hi, I am Coco Miyashita!

Hi, I am Yuri Mido!

Pleased to meet you!

Today, welcome to our special livestream!

We are the students from Shinonome Academy!

And we are here to meet everyone who were watching today!

This is the place where you could know more about School Idols and LoveLive!

This is… the School Idol Station!

Now, Stage Start!!

It’s my first time doing with this livestream!

So, as do I.

It seems we can do interact with some people in our livestream today. What do you think, Yuri?

Umm… Actually, it was my first time interacting and to read comments in our livestream today, Coco.

So then, there is a reason why we did this livestream!

That’s right! And that is, the SIFJL is currently on publishing break today!

What does that mean, Yuri?

That’s means, no new Episodes to be published today!

I see. Now, I understand!

So, for now, as that segment is currently on a break, let’s have some recap on some previous Episodes that were published!

Hmm…. So then, what has happened in the story? Was it from the “Story Episodes”?

Exactly, Coco! We are going to recap and summarize on what has happened in the Story Episodes of SIFJL SEASON TWO!

Let’s begin, shall we, Yuri?

But before that, let us know the characters who were present in the Story Episodes!

I want to know them more!

Alright, let us find out and learn more about the characters in the Story Episodes of SIFJL! Coco, are you ready?


Okay, let’s begin!

The Idol Chasers

“You are a School Idol and… a Supporter!”

So how the Idol Chasers was formed? It was formed when people who have mutual interests about School Idols have gathered.

“Idol Chasers… We are the people who were the supporters and fans of these lovely School Idols! Not only we just follow them in order for them to keep continuing to chase for their dreams, but we are also chasing for our dreams in order to see them closer face-to-face! We are definitely chasing them in order for us to realize our own true dreams, and to follow our own hearts leading to our unforeseen future!”, said Chiharu.

It was formed, thanks to the two people who have shared their thoughts and feelings for each other about School Idols.

It is meaning that every people have the right to follow a School Idol who is taking her necessary steps in becoming a popular artist — making her road to total stardom. That School Idol is also following and continuing her own path of dreams leading to her own “radiance”. And so, Idol Chasers are people who were called as the “supporters” or “fans” of these School Idols. They kept to continue to follow them wherever they go, while they were supporting them and giving them rightful directions in making them grow better while singing and dancing in the live stage.

Idol Chasers also give love and support to these lovely School Idols by getting and buying their merchandise and figures. Also, they were get inspired and they were covering some of their songs, as well as singing and dancing along with it! And sometimes, Idol Chasers can be like anything, just in order to follow and support these School Idols. Sometimes, they can even compete with its related video games, as well as participating in some tournaments and championships, attending live performance events and ocassional attractions, and even showcasing their own cover versions of the songs by School Idols.

When these mutual hobbies and interests of people about School Idols have combined, this is where the Idol Chasers was born.

Wow! So cool!

I never thought that this group of people have existed in our universe.

But then, call it as a work of fiction!

Everyone, just to give you clarification, SIFJL segment is just fanmade, okay?

Which means, it has no relation with the original LoveLive! Series at all!

Basically, that footnote in the picture which is shown on the headers of the Story Episodes are well indicated! Take note!

I hope that you are still watching with our livestream! Please watch it until the very end!

That’s right. We got still some more stuffs to reveal!

Alright, stay tuned! We shall be back for more!

This time, we shall be talking about the characters who had found the Idol Chasers!
