Crunchyroll describes the anime:
Nijigasaki High School is known for their diverse subjects and the freedom they give to students. Second-year student Yu Takasaki has been turned on to the charms of school idols, so she knocks on the door of the School Idol Club with her friend, Ayumu Uehara.
Sometimes friends, sometimes rivals, the members of this club each contribute their own thoughts and motivations to the group.
The franchise's staff introduced the members of Nijigasaki Academy's Idol Appreciation Club in 2017 as part of KLab Games and Bushiroad's Love Live! School Idol Festival smartphone game's "Perfect Dream Project" (PDP).
Hajime Yatate, the collective pseudonym for the staff of Sunrise, was once again credited for original work. Sakurako Kimino was also credited again for original concept, as in previous Love Live! anime. Tomoyuki Kawamura (Good Luck Girl!, Mitsuboshi Colors, Kamigami no Asobi - Ludere deorum) directed the first season at Sunrise. Jin Tanaka (Laid-Back Camp, Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode, Cinderella Nine) was in charge of the series scripts. Takumi Yokota (Pupipō!, Mitsuboshi Colors) designed the characters.
Update: Corrected background info. Thanks, Aerodynamic41.
