I Want to Shine!! (輝きたい!! Kagayakitai!!) is the first episode of the Love Live! Sunshine!! anime series. It was aired on July 2, 2016.
Having been inspired by the school idol group μ's, Takami Chika, a second-year student at Uranohoshi Girls' High School, tries to start her own School Idol Club. As Chika and her friend, Watanabe You, try to recruit members, she faces resistance from the student council president, Kurosawa Dia, who states she will not approve such a club.
Later that day, Chika comes across a girl from Tokyo, and explains to her how she became inspired by μ's, who showed her how normal people could shine. Inspired by her story, the girl introduces herself as Sakurauchi Riko, a transfer student from Otonokizaka High School, the same school μ's attended.
After You decides to become the first new member of the School Idol Club, Riko transfers into Chika's class. In high hopes of gaining another member for her club, Chika asks Riko to join, only to have her invitation declined.
