How excited are you for the next season of Love Live?
My excitement meter is off the chart.
Not really all that excited. LL was an okay show but it's my least favorite of the idol shows of the past few years.
Definitely the show I'm looking forward to the most next season. It sucks that the western fanbase is practically non-existent, especially considering how popular it's become in Japan.
Counting down the weeks.
Can't wait for more Maki
So, who's ready for the graduation?
It's weird. I like LoveLive, i think the characters and music are great, and the anime was okay. But i can't get into it, i listen to the songs or read or watch stuff for one day, and the next day already forgot about them. I don't know why this happens. Maybe the characters have too little development? Music is kinda generic? I'm pretty sure i'm not the only one because Love Live threads always dies soon or are slow as fuck.
Meanwhile with IM@S or Aikatsu i never had this problem, i think i'm even getting more into WUG than LoveLive.
It's funny, because I feel the reverse is true for me. I really enjoyed iM@S and still keep up with Aikatsu, but Love Live is the one I enjoy the most. It's surprising, given that LL was also the shortest of all the idol shows.
As I mentioned earlier though, a lot of your lack of interest may come from the fact that the western fanbase is virtually non-existent. We don't have general threads like iM@S, or any place in general that it's being discussed regularly.
It's different if you know Japanese however, the LL community on nico/twitter/2ch is much more active. I kind of hope season 2 gets some more western viewers, but at the same time I know it's only going to attract casual "waifu wars" viewers, so maybe it's for the best.
I'm pretty excited. Also can't wait for the figures to come out.
Dat fucking Umi figure. I'll be broke if they actually plan on making all 9 μ's.
Maybe this season ill finally remember MC, megane and blond's names! Woo!
Nico and Maki are the only two who matter anyway. Kotori needs to have her vocal cords removed
I wish LoveLive would become more popular on /a/.
I miss tomochin...
I like Kotori's voice the most. I think it's cute.
She needs to stop talking and singing. She is literally the only reason why i cant listen to the love live music. It physically pains me to listen to it
I still need to finish season 1
I like you. Suzuko, Orine and Sonata are still my favorites but you were my favorite every thread poster during airing
>Didn't like purest form of love
I don't have the pictures any more but you know who I mean.
>didnt like it
Where was that said? Did i say it? No? Didnt think so.
Sae x Sayaka is OTP, get used to it~ Im just joking, Im sure Megu will be possessed eventually, right?
i just found and watched love live about 2 weeks ago...im pretty lucky that s2 happens to be coming up
Nice. You've already seen the 6 music PVs I assume? Any favorite songs? Characters? Pairings?
Oh god I'm so desperate to talk to people who have seen Love Live.
What do you want to talk about? There isn't much until the new season.
Anything that makes the wait til season 2 shorter. Speaking of next seasons, I wonder what the chances are that Love Live will get a 3rd season. Its sales have been incredibly high so there's no worries in that department, the thing that concerns me more is that the group members can't stay school idols forever. With rumors about the 3rd years graduating next season, I can't see how they'll continue to make more beyond that (unless they graduate into being professional idols).
Oh well, it's a bit too early to start thinking of a third season. The only 3rd season I want out of Studio 8 right now is Horizon S3.
sorry i cant offer much discussion...My favorite girls are maki and umi followed by everyone else but nico...i dont care for nico...
When the second season was announced I wanted to go to sleep and not wake up until the day it airs.
dang it i read this entire thread as Love Lab instead of Love Live and i was so dang confused
I'm looking forward to hearing this little slut's squeaky voice again
Jesus christ it does things to my dick and I don't understand why. She sounds almost unnatural. Why does it do things to my dick anon?
Because it makes her sound unnaturally feminine
Nice to see someone so passionate about these girls, but you need to chill a little bit.
Umi is love, Umi is life.
How would you rank the Love Lives? Umi, Nico, Maki, Nozomi and Eri would be in my top five.
Those are in everyone's top five. Granted, there are only 9 girls to choose from.
Why is she so beautiful?
nico is rank 9 for me
Top 5 for me personally would be (in no particular order):
Honoka, Eri, Nozomi, Nico, Rin
I pretty much like all the members though. I'm gonna be super fucking sad when the 3rd years graduate...
>no particular order
>Honoka first, then Eri
I think we all know what you're thinking about.
Honoka ships with every girl easily.
Muse is her personal harem
Her swag is unbeatable. It just comes naturally.
There are usually threads on futaba compared to here. Thank god their taste are good for once.
Wish we would get more fan and official art of her having a harem though.
I certainly hope Rin is going to get more screentime and a bit of character development. They hinted at her having a bit of a complex about not being feminine enough but never went into it any further.
Did you guys know they are bringing over a iOS game?
I'm guessing every girl will get at least if not a full then a partial episode.
I'm interested in whether there will be a graduation arc.
That girl should learn to show some class.
I almost died seeing them in yukatas
Still amazed this show got a second season, japan has shit taste as always, bring on the 3rd season of AKB0048 instead!
I didn't like the first Love Live a huge amount when I saw it this time last year (!) mostly due to the drama, but for some reason I really like and miss it in retrospect now, especially after the OVA/6th PV. Really looking forward to season 2 and more Maki
Maki is bad for my health.
I loved S1 of that show. Nagisa & co. were great and they were the main focus of the episodes.
S2 was shit though. The AKB48 copies got too much screen time. This + all those uncreative copies of IRL idol events turned every episode into an AKB48 advertisement on crack, whereas S1 was much more subtle with the AKBpromoting.
Don't let me down Sunrise
Nevermind, I retract my comment. S2 was funny, not shit. The threads were entertaining and it was more of a trainwreck.
She's a baka and also isn't the most feminine. It can't be helped it's how she was born and raised.
More girls need to be born and raised like that.
She just needs a big wake up call penis to remind her that she's a girl.
Remember when it looked like we were going to get drama early on about Rin struggling with her whole tomboy label, but then nothing happened?
I can't wait, I've missed Maki and Kotori so much.
Plus more great songs but nothing beats Banzai.
>people hating Kotori
>people not hating Nozomi
She's just a breast grope device and a terrible singer. Also >being healthy
Do we know what the songs on the individual CD packs are yet? I seriously hope we get that as a single by Maki. Her voice is just incredible.
I do think MUSIC S.T.A.R.T!! and No Brand Girls are almost as good as Banzai and Snow Halation. They have a different kind of charm, though.
The less is that you shouldn't be ashamed of being a tomboy, anon.
Boning tomboys is some kind of dream for me.
>Wake up girls with penis
There's no way that could backfire, I'll be back.
>pantie shots with bulges
I didn't even intend that
WHO TOUJOU HERE?
Which idols are graduating this season and will they still be muse if they do or get more members?
Nico, Eri, Nozomi
Kotori, Umi, Honoka
Maki, Rin, Hanayo
We lose Makis ship, Sexy HARASHO and Breast Groper 5000.
Eri, Nico and Nozomi, as far as I know.
>will they still be muse
Of course. It's hard to believe that the anime is going to suddenly change the members of something that has always been like that prior to it. Which leads me to:
>get more members
Gee, I don't know. Why would people hate one of the two persons who ruined the last 3 episodes of the show with their stupid drama that could have been solved in 5 minutes if they just fucking sat down to fucking talk?
But in regard to fertility, Toujou is clearly the best.
Healthy to the max.
I wanna spank her
Kotori squeal's heal the soul.
You'll just get spanked back.
is that a 'go ahead'?
best love live
Sure, If you can handle it.
Ocean best girl.
idk she looks fat to me. i rank her 5th
what do the runes mean what are they measuring
Don't supose there is a compilation of all her squeeks somewhere?
Bust and waist size?
bust and hip size
Fuck, meant bust and hip size.
>small chest, big hips
Why is Maki perfect in every way possible?
I'm telling you Nozomi is worse. Go listen to Junai Lens. In fact, here you go.
I honestly thought this was Kotori's VA before I could identify by voice. That's how much I want Nozomi to stop singing.
is it bad if Nozomi's singing is growing on me?
>Her voice kills
>Hating that heavenly voice.
Which one is nozomi again?
high pitched != heavenly
Its basically nails on a chalkboard
She's ok if she's blended in in a trio or the full group. On her own or a duo is freaking bad. She's got a low-grade complementary voice. It just isn't good alone.
Nico's breast masseuse. Just click my link. That's Nozomi and Nico on the cover.
The big breasted fat ass.
Japan is a wonderful place.
Oh fatty! Okay. I honestly can never remember MC's, megane, blond or fatty's names. I just dont know why.
>small chest, big hips
>Big chest, big hips
Eri disagrees with your statement.
Is it bad if i like more True Nico than Idol persona Nico?
I'm so jelly right now. Why don't we get nice things over here.
It does take a certain degree of getting used to but its not bad by any chance. It would be better if they didnt force her chipmunk voice. In the most recent live her natural voice sounds really nice.
No, thats her best charm point.
Honaka, Hanayo, Eri and Nozomi in that order.
Small chest means she has dat complex. Also you can be closer to her heart.
Has anyone found some good mixes for some of the songs? I've only run into a few.
dat feminine charm
Maki has the best gap.
I want more of Hanoka's convincing.
I want to protect that smile.
I'll never understand the appeal of the gap, wouldn't it mean things would be wider and more cavernous than usual in there?
So why should I give this a marathon before season 2?
Is there going to be a live stream rewatch of S1 before S2 starts. I think there should be.
I really liked the first season but i never finished it because of the retarded drama.
I do hope this season will be more like the earlier episodes which were actually fun to watch.
Because its a good show.
I don't understand why people didn't like the drama. They gave an idol show a deeper plot and people called it "forced drama".
What the fuck is forced drama anyway? How can you determine is drama is forced? How do you separate forced drama from normal drama? A friend is moving away, it impacts you. And for Hanoka, Kotomi was one of her closest friends. It would not have been the same without her, so she became depressed. How is this forced?
One of the reasons love live was good was because of it's story. It taught that things don't always go the way you want them to, there are going to be hardships and roadblocks. However what results from those hardships and roadblocks is decided upon how you take action when they come up. That was the point of having all of that drama. So why did putting a good leason (one of which is not commonly found in anime about cute girls) lead to the series being bad?
>what is forced drama
I think people mistake it for drama used to move the plot. It didn't really move the plot but rather just exposed some of the characters. By that point, they already saved the school (we have people who haven't watched it here) so it wasn't really for the sake of moving the plot. I suppose it was to give them a new direction to go and it was fluent to the story.
Since I already watched imas and am watching wake up girls I'll give it another shot.
I understand and can respect that. I guess it just frustrates me when people insult the show simply because it utilized drama to progress the plot. It seems to me, and I could be totally wrong, that the existence of drama in any form of entertainment is purposed to further develop a story's plot. But maybe I should just chill out and not take it so personally.
Sorry for not using spoilers in my first post.
So what are people looking for in S2?
>more solo Maki piano
>Maki x Nico shipping
>Nozomi prophecies via breast massage
>2-3 New Songs
>Muse's vs A-Rise New sone please. Private Wars is amazing
>More of Maki's Mom Or any of the moms, for that matter Except Kotori's. Fuck the school.
>Drama that doesn't have a convoluted solution Who am I kidding? They probably will fuck it up. This is Sunrise.
I agree. Unlike IM@S where the plot was still there, the general plot of LL! wasn't there. It's not like it was really forced, because it was already happening on the side.
I think it's more when people use the term forced drama they actually mean poorly done drama or melodrama. Also people tend to dislike when series that started out as lighthearted change to drama later on, more so if they thought it was better before the drama came.
And people seriously need to get off of that train. Despite drama sucking a lot of the time, even better times than before the drama come from it.
I want Honoka convincing me.
Any decent place to get the episodes? The batch torrent I'm using seems to be dead, as are most of the others.
I was about to rewatch and am grabbing a batch myself. Nyaa seems to have a nice set of batches by FFF. I'm getting the 720 to save some cap room for the month. Fucking ISPs.
Ah you're right, never mind then.
I purchased them
Good for you Anonymous, really. Maybe if Japanese BDs weren't so expensive I'd do the same.
I was going to look for pics in Pixiv and this appeared as soon as i got in. Good or bad? Would you accept this gift from her?
>implying she isn't looking at Maki
>implying she isn't holding Maki's pantsu
I'll take them, kick out Nico and Give them back to her and comfort her.
The drama in the last episodes concerning a member of Muse was not pointless or convoluted. It has build ups and serves a pivotal point in the development of Muse. The only complain I have is that the drama was resolve pretty fast.
The reason many people do not like it is they didn't expect drama in a happy-go-lucky show like this one.
Isn't nisa localizing the series?
Inb4 buying localization. Fuck Lantis for splitting a 13 episode series in to 7 disksets.
>13 into 7
You know this isn't uncommon, right?
I still haven't heard anything about their release plans. Not that it matters to me, I already imported the series too.
My only complaint is that it was addressed in such a way that made Kotori seem like a huge cunt. They could have paved out Kotori's indecisive, weak willed personality more.
That's what the whole maid episode was about.
Most of the shows are split between 6 volumes.
But clearly from all the bitching we got, it failed to do it's job.
May I ask why? I found her unbearable.
I wouldn't mind a new generation story. I mean 75/76th generation's story is done but you can always do one with an earlier or later generation
It did do the job well, perhaps way more than it should have. People were bitching probably because they don't understand the character and the Hono-Umi-Koto dynamic that well.
I can't wait.
>Splicing ultimate health with ultimate flat
The possibilities are endless
I know realize how creepy are Nico's colors. Look at Maki, that isn't human at all. Damn vampires.
>Has anyone found some good mixes for some of the songs? I've only run into a few.
Pretty good, thanks for sharing. And that guy has a lot of LL songs remixed; did they release acapellas for some songs or something?
