Gaiden Episode 02: What Awaits On The Door to Future

The following day, Coco and Yuri are indeed preparing for their livestream. They are seemed to be prepared and more confident this time.

Alright, Yuri! Let’s finish this livestream ourselves!

Okay! We are on the last stretch!

Part 1

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our livestream again!

We will finish everything what we have started here!

Hi, I am Coco Miyashita!

And I am Yuri Mido.

This is the School Idol Station! Stage Start!

Previously, we had talked about the Idol Chasers.

That’s right! And they were present in the Story Episodes of the SIFJL segment!

Hmm… I can’t believe that these kind of people have existed in the School Idol World just in order to support us!

Indeed. And many more projects are totally made continuously, thanks to the never-ending support of the fans worldwide.

Yuri, I got a question.

What is it, Coco?

As School Idols ourselves, we can be both School Idols and Supporters. To what School Idol group are you keeping to root for?

Eh? What a sudden question. Alright, I am going to answer. For me, it is going to be Aqours.

Aqours? I love them! I really love them to see that they have started from nothing to total stardom! And now, they are shining like brilliant jewels!

Okay, I have answered your question. For you, Coco, who is your favorite School Idol Group?

Me? Before Aqours, I do really love this School Idol Group from the bottom of my heart. It is none other than μ’s!

I see. They were considered as the real, Legendary School Idols! Now, although that they were not physically present in the stage forever, they were always spiritually present among the future and present generations of School Idols today!

After μ’s, there are lots of Next-Gen School Idols that are appearing from left to right!

Who could be those groups that are now present, as of today? Let’s find out!

The School Idol Groups
The Otonokizaka Girls’ High School Idols, µ’s!

“µ’s! Music… Start!!”

µ’s existed way back in 2010, just at the time when they debuted with their first song and PV, called Bokura no LIVE Kimi to no LIFE.

µ’s consisted of at least nine members, and they were the following:

Honoka KosakaEmi Nitta
Eli AyaseYoshino Nanjo
Kotori MinamiAya Uchida
Umi SonodaSuzuko Mimori
Rin HoshizoraRiho Iida
Maki NishikinoPile
Nozomi TojoAina Kusuda
Hanayo KoizumiYurika Kubo
Nico YazawaSora Tokui

µ’s has released over at least 50 different songs, and at least about 50 albums under their group name. Their most popular song, called Snow Halation, has become a trend and it has sometimes topped into the Japan music rankings in the past.

µ’s has collaborated with several companies, video games, and some other Anime series in order to boost up their popularity and audience.

µ’s finally rested in live performances and other related activities, ever since their last day of their Final LoveLive! live performance in April 2016. Not for long until January 2020, they had made their final blow on the LoveLive! Fest event, which was done in order to celebrate LoveLive! Series’ 9th Anniversary.

Their legacy has been passed down on the future School Idols who wished to follow their footsteps in searching for their true radiance. Ever since then, they are granted with the title, “Legendary School Idols”.

Aqours 5th LoveLive! -NEXT SPARKLING!!-
The School Idols from Uranohoshi Girls’ High School… Aqours!

“Aqours… Sunshine!!”

Aqoursアクア debuted in the universe or series since October 7, 2015, with their first animation PV and single, titled as “Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiterukai?

Currently, the members are:

Chika TakamiAnju Inami
Riko SakurauchiRikako Aida
Kanan MatsuuraNanaka Suwa
Dia KurosawaArisa Komiya
You WatanabeShuka Saito
Yoshiko TsushimaAika Kobayashi
Hanamaru KunikidaKanako Takatsuki
Mari OharaAina Suzuki
Ruby KurosawaAi Furihata

Aqours has released over 50 different albums and singles, which also include the ones from their sub-units counterpart (namely as CYaRon!, AZALEA, and Guilty Kiss).

Aqours has also done several major live shows, which included one-man live shows and fan meetings, under their School Idol Group name. This group has done at least over 10 major live show performances. Their very-first live performance was done since February 25 and 26, 2017, titled as “Aqours First LoveLive! ~Step ZERO to ONE~”.

Nijigasaki High School Idols!

“Sound up, TOKIMEKI!”

The current members are:

Yu TakasakiHinaki Yano
Ayumu UeharaAguri Onishi
Kasumi NakasuMayu Sagara
Shizuku OsakaKaori Maeda
Karin AsakaMiyu Kubota
Ai MiyashitaNatsumi Murakami
Kanata KonoeAkari Kito
Setsuna YukiTomori Kusunoki
Emma VerdeMaria Sashide
Rina TennojiChiemi Tanaka
Shioriko MifuneMoeka Koizumi
Mia TaylorShu Uchida
Lanzhu ZhongAkina Houmoto

Nijigasaki High School Idol Club is actually a different kind of School Idol Group, which is not actually a group, unlike from µ’s and Aqours. In fact, all of the members there are considered as either friends or “rivals”. Sometimes, even though that they clash by their superior live performances, there are times that they were re-united because they were all having one common goal. And that is, they wanted to make their own dreams to come true. But what is that “dream” that they wish to come true?

And that is why, girls can become both a “School Idol” and a “Supporter”.

The Yuigaoka Girls’ High School Idols Liella!

“We are the Yuigaoka Girls’ High School Idols Liella!”

Liella!リエラ had debuted in the series, since the release of their first song and PV, entitled Hajimari wa Kimi no Sora, since April 7, 2021.

The current members are:

Kanon ShibuyaSayuri Date
Keke TangLiyuu
Chisato ArashiNako Misaki
Sumire HeannaNaomi Payton
Ren HazukiNagisa Aoyama

The group name, Liella!, was a combination of French and Spanish words, namely lier and brillante, respectively. Lier means to bind or connect, and brillante means brilliant or to shine. This group name has been decided and picked up through an online poll by Dengeki G’s Magazine, which was done between August 17 until 31, 2020.
