Let's Start Becoming Idols! (アイドルを始めよう! Aidoru wo Hajimeyou!) is the second episode of the Love Live! School idol project anime series. It was aired on January 13, 2013.
Honoka manages to get permission to use the auditorium for a concert in a month's time, although Umi has doubts that they'll be ready in time. Unable to think of a name for their group, Honoka holds a contest for the name before realizing they do not actually have a song to practice with.
As Umi reluctantly agrees to write lyrics, she puts Honoka and Kotori on an exercise regime to build up their stamina. As Honoka unsuccessfully attempts to get the pianist from before, Maki, to compose songs for them, Eli warns her that her idol plan could backfire and damage the school's reputation further. Honoka perks up, however, she hears the class is supporting her, as well as the fact that they received a name for their group: μ's.
Honoka once again approaches Maki, showing her how serious an idol's work is and giving her the lyrics Umi wrote. After a little advice from the student council vice-president, Nozomi, she sends Honoka a CD of her composition, while also anonymously voting for μ's on an idol ranking site.
