Aim for Victory (優勝をめざして Yūshō wo Mezashite) is the second episode of the Love Live! School idol project Season 2 anime series. It was aired on April 13, 2014.


A new rule in which contestants in the preliminary rounds must perform songs that have not yet debuted is introduced to Love Live!, so μ's decide to hold another training camp at one of Maki's villas in the mountains in order to come up with a new song. As Maki, Umi, and Kotori find themselves in a creative slump because of the pressure, the rest of the girls form camp groups of three to help them come up with music, lyrics, and costumes, but they still have trouble keeping focused. However, after hearing some encouragement from their friends, Maki, Umi, and Kotori gain the drive to come up with a new song overnight.
