Love Live! Once Again (もう一度ラブライブ! Mōichido Rabu Raibu!) is the first episode of the Love Live! School idol project Season 2 anime series. It was aired on April 6, 2014.


With a new school year approaching, Honoka succeeds Eli as student council president, with Umi as vice president and Kotori as a member. Word soon reaches the group that Love Live! is taking place yet again on a larger scale then last year. However, since the format has changed to include regional preliminaries, they soon realise that in order to qualify for the tournament, they would have to beat A-RISE in the regional preliminary. The group is surprised when Honoka suggests they do not need to enter Love Live!, feeling it is not something that she would say. Later that night, Yukiho informs Honoka that the opening date of Love Live! is at the end of March, when the new school year begins.

The next day, Nico challenges Honoka to a race to decide if μ's should enter Love Live! or not. Honoka comes to understand the meaning of those words, as Eli, Nozomi, and Nico will eventually graduate and no longer be school idols, making this year's Love Live! the last opportunity for μ's to perform together as a group of nine. With the others easing her worries, Honoka states her true desire to enter Love Live! and aim for victory.

Errors & Goofs
