School Idol Tomodachi
With Love Live! merch, including Aqours, µ's, PDP idols, and any other side characters or voice actresses.
With BanG Dream! merch, including all members of all bands, even bands outside of the GBP game and voice actresses.
If you're not interested in any of the official merch we have, you can get a custom digital drawing or edit instead
What if it isn’t summer where I live?
Hey mate, you are free to do winter instead, and will be able to enter the "Summertime Sweetheart" category just like the other summer pictures. We just want you to capture the essence of your current season!
I don't feel like taking summer-themed photos, can I just take normal photos of my merch?
Yes. It will not qualify for the "Summertime Sweetheart" category, but you still have a chance to win in the other categories!
Do I need a good camera and good photography skills?
Any camera will do. If the quality ends up not being so good, you won't be able to win the "Picture Perfect Idol" category, but you can still use your creativity and take your chance to win in the other categories!
What if I don't have a lot of merch?
You don’t need “a lot” to do well in this contest! Even one item is fine. It might not get you to win the "SUPER OSHI" category, but we care about quality over quantity, so get creative, and see what summer-themed things you can create, or show off your photography skills!
What if I don't have any merch, at all?
Get creative, create your own! Printed characters work too! (As long as you use official images, your own art, or fan-art with the artist's consent + credit)
Do I have to use official merch only, or fan-made are allowed?
Fan-made merch are allowed, but we insist that you should do your best to find the artist and link to their store. Of course, you are also allowed to use your own merch.
Can I re-use old photos?
Yes, but they need to match the theme and you need to take them yourself. We might ask you for proof or retakes if we can't say for sure that you took them, and we may eliminate you if we find out you didn't.
I am not able to give you my address, can I still participate and get a prize?
We will be able to give you a digital prize instead, so feel free to join.
Most BanG Dream! characters are not idols, and Pokémon are not idols, can I still enter with a BanG Dream! / Pokémon themed photo?
Yes! We are aware that not all of them are idols, but we use this word because it's an easy shortcut.
Do I need to specify which category I'm entering?
You don't need to specify which categories you're entering.
Can I photoshop or edit my photos to add decoration, stickers, etc.?
You may add decorations, stickers, or do any kind of post-processing if you'd like. However, for the "Summertime Sweetheart" category, we will only take into account summer-themed decorations that are in the actual photo.
Can I include people in the photo?
Yes, you can include whatever you want in the photo as long as it's aligned with the general rules for activities and it contains some merch of any kind.
Any other question?

I am LOVING this beach-event-story and how much they all respect Rinko's boundaries. She's not forced to buy a swimsuit with the others and Lisa even scolds Ako for pushing too much when Rinko is clearly uncomfortable, and while still asked, she's not forced to join the others playing in the sea and can just stay behind and read. That's so refreshing to see, I love it!
An energetic and pure-hearted girl who pours everything into the things she loves!
Hagumi may be a bit of an airhead, but when it comes to the things she's responsible for, she won't do it half-heartedly! This girl decided to take up being a bassist on top of being the captain of her softball team and helping her family with their shop - and she balances them all perfectly! Even though she appears quite naïve and unintelligent at times, when she's decided to do something, she will give it her all without hesitation.
The cutest member of Hello, Happy World!
At first glance, Hagumi may look pure tomboy, but she also has many feminine points! Hagumi just loves cute things, especially bears and cuddly toys. She was initially interested in joining Hello, Happy World! because of Michelle! She is also adept at advising her friends about what gifts to buy for themselves and others. Hagumi is the type of girl who wears cute clothes that still let her play sports and run marathons whenever she wants to - she's not boyish or girlish, she just wants to look cute while doing what she loves!
Staying strong while hiding her struggles
In Hagumi's initial 3-star episode, she opens up to Kokoro and reveals that she actually has a difficult family life, where her parents are always arguing, her mother occasionally gets violent, and her father sometimes leaves the house for days at a time. Despite that, she still remains a happy and energetic girl, and rarely mentions the troubles she endures at home. She remains sensitive to the troubles of others and determined to spread smiles around the world. Hagumi, as you continue to support everyone, your fans hope to continue to support you too!
