Five women, included in this Kanon Shibuya, possess a fateful encounter with school idols. Kanon decides, “I really like singing. I wish to make something become a reality with song!” Many feelings converge upon a star which has only began to develop. The long run is blank and filled with possibility of these women, as well as their story that everybody can make possible only has just begun. Soar together with your wings, our Love Live!
