Hanayo informs μ’s of a school idol tournament called Love Live!, in which the top 20 school idol groups from across the nation come together to compete against each other. Needing the school’s permission to enter, the group went to ask the chairwoman for permission, and despite Eli’s objection, she approves of their entry on the condition that none of them fail a subject in the upcoming exams. This puts a lot of pressure on three of μ’s members, who have generally bad grades. The girls then split jobs to help the three members. Will μ’s pass their exams and get to perform in the Love Live! tournament?
