Crunchyroll describes the story:

Otonokizaka High School is planning to close within three years. However, nine female students come together with one thing in mind— to form a pop idol group to revive the school's popularity and keep it from shutting down. 'In order to protect our beloved school, there's only one thing we can do...become pop stars!'

Their goal is simple: Become an overnight sensation and use their nationwide media exposure to promote their school and bring in a wave of new students to the ailing area. A simple but solid plan, they figure. Naturally, they're nervous and wonder if this plan can really succeed, but for better or worse their new journey has begun...

In 2010, the anime studio Sunrise, Lantis, and ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G Magazine launched Love Live! as a self-described "ultimate user-participation project" which lets its fans vote on the future of the fictional idols. A series of music CDs and animated music videos then followed. The members of the project announced in 2012 that an full anime series has been green-lit for last year.

The first anime season premiered in Japan on January 6, 2013. The media service Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. NIS America has licensed the series for North American release.
