i'm pretty sure it's because they don't think it'd do well outside of asia, not yet at least. and they'd be right, if you look at how well it's doing in japan compared to how much of an audience it has in north america or any of the western countries. it's a shame, really, because we won't see anything for it in the west until it gains some mainstream popularity, which given the nature of the franchise seems highly unlikely. guess it's time to learn moonspeak and move to nippon.

it's outselling it, but in terms of if it actually rivals iM@S, I don't know. iM@S is pretty huge, and it's been around for a long time (and stayed huge) so it has a much more established fanbase.

what I can say though, is it's the closest rival to iM@S, more so than any other idol show. give it some more time and maybe you'll get your answer.

I would hope so as well, but you do realize the graduation song was leaked, right? That's the only reason anyone is even considering the possibility that the 3rd years graduate.

If they do end up graduating, I'm assuming they will still stick around and form a mini-group as professional idols. Since μ's is a 9-member group, Honoka and Eri's imoutos will probably join, along with a new character. That's the safe bet, but again, nobody knows what is going to happen. We'll all be on the same boat come season 2.

I'm wondering if the franchise should expand. Knowing the bastards at Namco, they still aren't satisfied by their 10 digit bank accounts.

In the show, School Idols are an national phenomenon and there are a number of groups we didn't see on-screen.

Not to mention there's the side characters in the SIF game.

Simply developing A-Rise and a few other idol groups near the top should be enough to expand the franchise.

A manga has already been serialised. In fact, the run began before the anime.

AND

Sakurako likes it.

It's more apparent in the manga where they're childhood friends and senpaixkouhai.

Also RedxBlue.

Honoka being our Lovely Leader has a choice between two Blue Wingmen- Umi and Eli.

I'll be ready when the day comes. That being said, I kind of enjoy these off-season Love Live threads, because there's an absence of the casual waifu-wars viewers that will be jumping on board come season 2. I do hope we get some good threads when the show airs again, though.

"Eri is a lonely widow living in 19th century St Petersburg who spends her boring days waiting on suitors asking for her hand in marriage. Although she knows they only want her inheritance, she entertains them during lunch.

Umi is a shy girl from a poor farming family in Voronezh. The 8th child and a female, she moves to St Petersburg to seek her fortune and finds a job working as a maid at the Ayase household.

Eli becomes intrigued by her bumbling, easily flustered maid and befriends her.

The relationship between master and servant becomes blurred as their relationship becomes stronger. Eli gets closer and closer to her maid until one day on a wintry night, they kiss"

>>101730932
Silly anon, there is no good on /a/. They were just not terrible, which is all I can ask for. As the other anon said though, the overall quality is generally higher because the people posting actually knew enough about Love Live to have a discussion, as compared to the seasonal trolls that only talk about currently airing anime and which girl is their waifu.

Short answer, no. It'd be safe to assume a 1-cour show though, which means 13 episodes, like season 1.

>Hell do we know anything about s2?
So far all we know is there's a graduation song that was leaked on the radio, which started rumors about what's happening with the 3rd years. Also, everybody is expecting that they finally actually make it to Love Live. Nothing is certain, so just sit back and get on the hype train.

Last year I went to C3 in Hong Kong and watched Choucho perform 'I JUST FEEL MY WIND'

The funny thing is that I was hoping to meet the seiyus when I was in HK last year. And it seems Love Live only became huge in Hong Kong (cosplay performances, the live concert screening, the concert in Hong Kong) after I left.

Speaking of Choucho, hope she returns to the PRD more often. She also performed in a Guangzhou anime convention.

I like watching both. And, I don't mind the rivalry as long as it stays friendly.

What would life be like without competition and striving to do your best?

Well according to shounen anime, it would be boring.

And maybe in a few years time, franchises like T7S (The new game by Donut), Star Plus (Toei Idols), WUG (Yamakandols) can surpass Love Live?
>>
>>101777225
I would say it's unlikely. The law of diminishing return dictates that it's getting harder to have a break-out success in a saturated market. Idol anime is growing but it will reach the top point in the next few years. All idol franchises have to go mix media in order to gain success. That requires tons of money for initial investment, which Bandai has a clear advantage on. Most importantly, new shows have to offer what Love Live & Im@s & Utapri don't have, which I don't think those shows can.

Who UMI here?
>>
>>101778651
Rewind a few years and people would have assumed the same thing to be true for iM@S, the undisputed king of idol anime. Who would ever have thought that this small venture from Dengeki/Lantis would step up to rival that.

I mean, to use a different example, if you go back a decade in video games, you could say it was easier to break out because there was less competition, so more attention was given to the titles that actually did release, compared to right now where countless game titles are released, both from AAA developers as well as indies. Yet, when you look at what's actually happened, there seem to be more break outs now than ever, largely due to an ever-increasing userbase.

The bigger idol anime gets, the more chances studios have to break out because people will always be looking for something fresh/different. All I'm saying is don't rule it out, because it's probably more likely than people think it is.
>>
>>101778651
I think there is a chance into the future considering idol culture has existed for ages and even before anime capitalized on it, they were always around.

Even in anime alone, idol characters have been around for almost 50 years now.

I don't think cynical 'look at those ugly fanboys' shows like WUG stands a chance though.

The problem with WUG is that it tried to bite off a lot more then it could chew and it's the business equivalent of an all-in.

As for the show itself, only time will tell if it'll work out. Madoka Magica was cynical and became immensely popular.

As a criticism of the Idol Industry, I would much rather watch Perfect Blue.
>>
>>101783783
For me, a lot of the problems with WUG have to do with it's complete lack of anything to get attached to, be that the music, the characters or the real life idols. As you said, a part of that may have to do with just how cynical it is about the very thing it's dealing with, but it's more than that.

Production qualities aside, it doesn't feel like a show that knows what the hell it wants to do. If it's trying to be an introspective look at the idol industry, it's failing. It tries to point out many of the cliches while falling victim to many of the same things. I keep hearing people claiming how "realistic" it is, but those people don't seem to know what the fuck they're actually talking about, because WUG has the most black and white characterization I've seen from any idol show. "Bad guys are bad, let's cheer the good guys!". I think that's one of the things I really enjoyed about Love Live, was it's inherent lack of any "bad guy". People like to complain about the drama (I didn't really have a problem with it, to be honest it seemed completely reasonable, but that's a different debate) but they forget what iM@S had with it's arc, and all the drama created because there was a bad guy wanting to do bad things. WUG is headed in the same direction, but unlike iM@S, it doesn't have an established fanbase or history.

With all that being said, I'm still watching WUG, so we'll have to wait and see how it pans out.

Hono/Eli- Really popular in the manga. SenpaixKouhai, Childhood Friends and RedxBlue.
Umi/Hono- Another RedxBlue + Childhood Friends Pair. Let's hope this doesn't end like a certain anime set in a Catholic School.
KotoHono- My personal favourite. Kotori was Honoka's first childhood friend. Makes it more special, if that makes sense.
HonoMaki- SenpaixTsundere Kouhai
HonoRin- SenpaixKouhai. Plus they have similar personalities.
NozoHono- Well they did seem to get along in the 4th MV.
HonoHana- Hanayo will get taught the finer points of Idoling by her senpai and fellow Printemps member.

You sure you're not talking about Rin?

Not hating on Rin, to be honest. It's just that she has nothing going for her besides her relation with Hanayo and her genki attitude. She never steals the show like Nico and she never has any distinct role in the drama. It's a pity because I love her voice and character design and I want to see her fleshed out in S2, possibly with a single episode character arc.

I just realized something:
Eri is still part of the student council, and it can be assumed that she's near the top of her grade (I can recall this specific moment in the MUSIC S.T.A.R.T PV and a part in the Snow Halation PV she's studying). Not only this she is part of the idol group which takes up a good chunk of time for practicing and physical conditioning.
How does she have time to do student council work, keep up with the brutal schoolwork, study for college entrance exams, and still have time for mu's?

Nico sees Maki on the same train. She blushes and smiles instead of talking to her about her true feelings.

Eli and Umi spend time over Christmas. They go to a nearby Coffee shop on Christmas Day while Nozomi follows them. After telling Eli how she really feels about her, the two of them kiss. Nozomi stands outside the window and takes a picture on her phone.

She runs away before either of them notice. Pleased with the photo, Nozomi says 'I'm so happy for you, Elicchi.'

She walks along the bridge alone with a phone in hand, wiping the tears away from her eyes.

Rin and Hanayo get comfy during Christmas.

Honoka finally realises her true feelings, that she can no longer lie to herself, that she can no longer stay as 'just friends'. She runs across the city, finds Kotori and confesses her love to her friend.
>>
>>101803857
They were filming a MV and Nozomi was the cameraman.

The whole idea of giving out chocolates to the 3rd person was a trick by Nozomi to get chocolates from every member in μ's.

With the exception of Nico and Maki. Nozomi was expecting them to give valentine chocolates to each other, they just needed a little push.

You know, that's what I first though too, actually. But in the Wonderful Rush PV, Kotori actually forgets her hat at home. In episode 10, she has her hat, so I think it's more that the animators just wanted a nice little throwback.

That's how it starts, anon. I used to be like you, thinking "goddamn she has an annoying chipmunk voice". Then you start thinking her squeaks are pretty cute. Before long you're in love with her voice, buying every bit of Kotori merchandise you can get your hands on, unable to control your urge for more of that delicious helium-voice.

All I'm saying is it's a slippery slope.

She probably bought a new hat when they arrive.

On the other hand, I like the idea of Maki time swapping with her 10 year old self. And Nico having to babysit 10 year old Maki until 16 year old Maki returns.

Such yuri potential.

>>101852413
Dengeki had readers vote on improving the appearance of the characters. That's why Love Live's design is a collaborated effort from fans as well.
>>
>>101852413
There were a bunch of different artists working on a lot of the official art. Funny thing though, the official artist, murota yuuhei actually drew the first and last images in >>101851417

He really improved a lot. It's kind of nice, seeing Love Live grow and evolve like that.
>>
>>101852879
In the first couple PV, they were aiming for the more mature look. Later the character were drawn to increase the moeness and youthfulness.
>>
>>101852996
That probably explain why I like 3rd PV design the most. It's kinda middle ground between new and old design.
