First Step (ファーストステップ Faasuto Suteppu) is the third episode of the Love Live! Sunshine!! anime series. It was aired on July 16, 2016.
Ohara Mari, a third year student and the newly assigned chairwoman of Uranohoshi Girls' High School, states that if the girls can fill up the school gym with audience members, she will approve their School Idol Club. However, if they fail to get a full house, they must disband. Realizing that there aren't enough students in their school to fill the gym, the girls are forced to search outside the school to advertise their concert.
While trying to come up with a name for their group, the girls stumble upon the name "Aqours" anonymously written on the beach and decided to use it. On the day of the concert, only a handful of students show up, but the girls perform their hearts out nonetheless. Just as a power outage occurs and all hope seems lost, a whole crowd of people, who heard about the concert through Chika's sister and friends, arrive at the gym, while Dia secretly hooks up a backup generator, allowing the concert to continue.
