    01 "The First Thrill"
    (はじまりのトキメキ "Hajimari no Tokimeki")
    October 3, 2020
    Ayumu and Yuu are hanging out just outside Nijigasaki High School when they discover a concert by none other than Setsuna Yuki. When they realize Setsuna is a member of the "School Idol Club" which is a part of their school, the duo set out to achieve the school idol dream and join the club, until the student council president Nana Nakagawa shuts the club down. Despite this, Ayumu decides to become a school idol, with Yuu supporting her.

    (Cutest♡ガール "Cutest♡Gāru")

    The club is now shut down. Furious, Kasumi decides to revive the club with herself as president. She turns to an eager Ayumu and Yuu as the next members of the club, and explains to them why the club went on hiatus and ultimately shut down. She then proceeds to film a PV with Ayumu only for her to later realize that she's been forcing Ayumu to become something she wasn't, not unlike what Setsuna did to her back then. She then learns her lesson and films Ayumu's PV without forcefully directing her.

    (大好きを叫ぶ "Daisuki o Sakebu")
    October 17, 2020
    Karin and the others find out about Setsuna's real identity, and when they tell Kasumi and the others they act confused. Yuu isn't discouraged by this as an avid Setsuna fan, so she calls her to the rooftop to talk. Nana complains that all her dreams have been shattered and there was no way her club could have entered the Love Live given the state it was in right before it shut down. Yuu responds by telling her not to join the Love Live because it didn't matter to her anymore. With this new profound knowledge Nana changes into Setsuna and performs DIVE! on the balcony. She, along with Shizuku, Emma, and Kanata, the previous members of the club, all join back in along with the current members.

    October 24, 2020
    The girls had just finished setting up the clubroom when Ai and Rina ask to join. When the two ask what a school idol does, nobody can seem to answer. Everyone has their own ideas, and when Ai is asked for her idea of a school idol, she said that as long as she had fun it'll be alright for her. The girls then start practicing their singing and dancing. Throughout the rest of the episode Ai figures out what it means to be a school idol, and realizes she must follow her own path to shine.
