"Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump!" is a frequently ripped song from the Love Live! franchise.
"Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump!" was released as the third single by the Love Live! idol group μ's on August 24, 2011.[note 1] It is also included in all of μ's solo albums and μ's Best Album Best Live! Collection.
Nico Yazawa was chosen via a poll to be the song center of "Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump!", and became the protagonist for the promotional video. It is the first and most iconic µ's song where Nico is the song center.
The song was written by Hata Aki, composed by Okumatsu Makoto, and arranged by Takada Kyou.
The first rip of "Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump!", "Natsuiro Egao de 1,2,Jump! (NICO Mix) - Love Live! School idol festival", was uploaded on July 21, 2016 for the Nico Yazawa's Birthday event. It has since been deleted due to being blocked for copyright.
The song was then used in "A leaky announcement" and "An even leakier announcement [SPONSORED]", with the satirical "leaked" announcement of Nico being included in the tournament (which actually did happen, but only in the bonus arrangement "AFTER SCHOOL JEBINATORS - SiIvaGunner: King for Another Day").
After that, "Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump!" was used as the main theme for the SiIvaSummer All-Star Festival event, being featured in trailers and some rips during the summer. 10 rips (8 of them being the solo versions for each µ's member excluding Nico) of the song were also uploaded, plus "Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump Fusion Collab!", acting as the event's finale.
- In-universe, the song is performed by the nine-member idol group μ's, the main protagonists of Love Live!; the actual song was recorded and later performed live by the voice actors of the nine members. Aside from the version released as a single, an instrumental version and nine solo versions for each of the members were also released.
