According to this question, both μ's and Aquors are real life groups.

So, I am wondering what other groups that are mentioned in Love Live! School Idol Project and Love Live! Sunshine!! are also based off real life idol groups.

    If I'm not mistaken, ARISE also has a real life group. But they are not active. They formed only for the anime but held no concerts like u's. – 絢瀬絵里 Jan 16 '17 at 4:55

    Not sure if Saint Snow is considered as seiyuu unit or not. It's not mentioned on Wikipedia. – Aki Tanaka Jun 4 '17 at 7:14
