First Live (ファーストライブ Faasuto Raibu) is the third episode of the Love Live! School idol project anime series. It was aired on January 20, 2013.
On the day before the concert, Umi starts to get cold feet about performing in front of others. To get her used to other people, Honoka and Kotori get Umi to hand out fliers to help build her confidence.
When shown the costume made by Kotori for the concert, Umi has some reservations about it being so short, but Honoka manages to convince her to make sure all their efforts don't go to waste. However, on the day of the concert, no one shows up, as all the freshmen are busy checking the other clubs.
Just as Honoka is about to break down over her wasted efforts, a nervous girl named Hanayo Koizumi shows up to see the concert, prompting Honoka to go ahead with the performance. Some time into the performance, Hanayo's friend, Rin Hoshizora, shows up to drag her away again, but is quickly distracted by μ's performance. After the performance, Eli appears and asks them about what they'll do next. Honoka insists to her that they'll keep on performing so that they can one day fill up the whole auditorium.
