The drama was good for most of the show, but I think they really overblew it to stupid proportions at the end of episode 12. It was just too heavy.

I hope S2 keeps its drama in check, but I also hope it doesn't do the opposite and go full lolcomedy. A graduation ending will be dramatic enough.

I struggle to think of ways that that conflict will fit into the show. The entirety of S1 was about the girls working together. Things like actual competitions just feel more "iM@S" to me than the spirit of Love Live.

Well, I'll judge it when I see it. Maybe they can work it well.

Maybe it's because it has little to do with the idol industry in-universe, and how it's not about workmates and rivals in a company who have to work for thousands of strangers but about a group of friends in school who work together and make their own dances and songs.
>>
>>102110187
Not going to happen.
I hope I'm wrong though
>>
>>102110266
It's in the title of the franchise: The Love Live idol competition.

Who knows, maybe they'll be brave enough to actually delay the competition and not show it in the second season. Fans like me want to see them at least meet their future rivals in a preliminary way.

Its Love Live school idol project. Kind of need the franchise.

Unless they move to professional idols, have a few years of that until they conquer the world and have concerts all over the west as well and create world peace.

>>102110168
Its well done, most idol shows don't have NEARLY as much thought put into it. Fuck idolmaster hardly does. Now it doesn't even develop its existing characters, just add more cute chemistry. Which is fun in its own run but its not exactly complex.

But with LL their real life counterpart has a big part of their characters. You have a lot more to look for when you have someone acting the character in RL then just via game or anime

Also helps LL was improved upon years before the anime was announced

That's why I think it would be ideal for us to have 3 seasons. S2 for the titular Love Live event, and S3 for everything up to graduation. It would extend the franchise's longevity, and Sunrise/Lantis could squeeze another PV or two in between.

But we might actually get a graduation this year anyway if the rumors of a leaked graduation song are true.

If they cover 'Sayonara Memories' or write a song of a similar theme 'confessing to your lover before graduation' then it would be perfect.

Imagine Maki saying this

"I’m sorry I can’t say it any better
But I… about you.. how do I say it…
I can’t say goodbye to you now
I don’t want to stay as just friends
I thought we could back then.
I…you… about you…
For a long time now… I’ve always…always
…Loved you.

Ah I’ve finally said it!"

Just finished watching this for the first time. Despite episode 12 being a trainwreck and the copout ending for 13, I loved it for an idol series. Does anyone know if the manga or novels are further ahead than the anime? I'm curious/excited to see what S2 will cover.

>>102128007
There's a manga but it's unrelated, and untranslated. Also not consistent with the anime.

The source material isn't a manga or novel by the way.

Ep 13 is maybe a copout by the way ti went down to fast, but ep 12 is definitely not a trainwreck. Everything in ep 12 was handled logically down to each character's reaction with a proper buildup. The only reason people couldn't accept at first is because the show changes narrative from an ever happy one to a drama filled one. After rewatching many times, I think ep 12 is the one of the best in the show.

Aikatsu is by far the best idol show once you get into it, the first episodes aren't that great though and especially the cgi is really awful at first. But it only gets better the more you watch, the cgi dance scenes even become good at a point.

Oh don't worry, her popularity sky rocketed off of the anime with all the molesting and spiritual reality. She may not be the strongest singer and she may not be in the spotlight very often but she is a very big part of the job. She ties everything together and makes it wonderful

She's the seasoning that elevates a good dish into an excellent one. Shes that extra hint of flavor that makes you go "Wow!"

Honoka, Umi, Eri and Maki sound great in pretty much anything.
Rin is pretty close there.
Kotori and Hanayo have their moments where they fuck up.
Nico and Nozomi cant really sing that well.

Are you me? Because that is exactly how I rate them (in regards to vocals). I feel like too many people assume that since Maki is canonically good at singing in the anime that she's the best, and has the most beautiful voice. Truth be told, though, I actually feel Honoka, Umi and Eri are all on par, if not better at singing than Maki. Maki's solo "Darling!!" was really unimpressive, and is pretty much the reason I don't think she's as good of a singer as so many LL fans think she is. Rin is also a lot better than people give her credit for, but her character isn't portrayed as being good at singing so people generally ignore her.

Seriously, if you don't think Honoka or Rin are actually good at singing, listen to もうひとりじゃないよ and Mermaid Festa Vol. 2 ~Passionate~. People seem to forget that Emi Nitta (Honoka's VA) was trained professionally to sing, she didn't become the center for nothing.

I didn't really like Kotori's singing too much initially, but she's grown on me a lot since then. I'd say the weakest singing voice belongs to Nozomi, but I still like her. Anyway, that was a bit of a rant, it's just rare that I see someone's taste line up so perfectly with mine.

That's about how I line up too. I don't see how there could be much room for deviation. Although, personally, I'd put Honoka a step below the Soldier Game trio. There's no denying that she's good, she just seems to a bit inferior to them. Rin would be a step below her. I've never really been "wowed" by any of her vocal work. Her voice is just pleasant to listen to. The rest is about the same.
Also is it just me or does Hanayo sound different in almost every song she does.

I agree that Rin has a pleasant voice, but it doesn't really "wow" you. I think I'm okay with that. As for the Soldier Game trio, I personally feel Eri is the best singer, followed by Umi, and then Maki. For me, Honoka is above Maki, but I guess it comes down to personal taste.

>Also is it just me or does Hanayo sound different in almost every song she does.
Oh god yes, I thought I was the only one who thought this. She's the only one I find it incredibly difficult to tell when she's singing due to this.

Isn't voice direction (from director/producer/whoever is in charge) involved when it comes to singing voice?
The VAs are simply doing their job.

>>102185782
>As for the Soldier Game trio, I personally feel Eri is the best singer, followed by Umi, and then Maki.
Are you me? But what really solidified Maki's presence in the top 3 is her song from that PS3 game, Himitsu to Hanazono. That song is pure ear sex.

>She's the only one I find it incredibly difficult to tell when she's singing due to this.
I used to get her confused with Kotori, but in more recent songs her voice has become more percussive and abrasive so is a lot easier to differentiate. Does that even make sense? Anyway Hanayo's CV is a gravure model so I just take it as it comes.
>>
>>102185829
That's always going to be a part of it, which is what makes it difficult. Nozomi has to sound like Nozomi when she sings, the same for Kotori, Nico etc. The thing is, even with that in mind, I still believe she is the weakest singer, with Nico. Don't get me wrong, I really like both their characters, and I still enjoy their songs, but if you're rating vocal abilities they are probably the low end, at least in my mind.

If you go back and listen to 硝子の花園 I would say that Eri is the one elevating that song, Nozomi is more just trying to keep up. My example would be at 2:58 of that song. Compare Eri to Nozomi, and you'll hopefully understand what I mean. I don't think Nozomi is terrible at singing, but of the group I feel she's the weakest (at least in regards to singing). Goddamn do I love her speaking voice, though.

I always felt bad for Nozomi, because she's paired with Eri who is a noticeable better singer. The seitokai version of the ED is painful to listen to simply because of the huge contrast in ability.
>>
>>102185626
Honoka and Rin do not have such an unique voice as Umi, Eri or Maki. What they do have is consistence and a wider vocal range.

If you watched the new years live when they performed soldier game Pile could not really sing Eris part that well and Mimorin ate her at that performance easily.
If I were to rate Umi would be the best followed by Eri with Honoka and Maki close by.

Me too anon, me too. It's made worse by the fact that NozoxEri is my favorite pairing in Love Live. 硝子の花園 was like a dream-come-true song. If anyone did actually enjoy it, you should also check out the NozoEri Radio Garden series they've been doing, it's so cute. There are currently 7 parts out on nico, definitely worth a listen if you like that pairing.

I wish they'd do Soldier Game again with every member present. I'm disappointed that they left it at that. The dance move at the end where they go "Ahhh" is mesmerizing.

>>102186144
Pile did seem awkward in Soldier Game. Although, Pile sounds awkward/different for many songs in the lives. It's not as smooth and supple. Honoka and Rin definitely got the range, but they lack they vocal vibrato that I find orgasmic. That's a pretty important factor to me. Ucchi is actually a pretty good singer, but I think the squeeky Kotori voice really hinders her.

>>102186270

>>102186307
While I don't really think it's "cheating", that's kind of the point I was getting at when I said Nozomi had to soung like Nozomi, and Kotori/Nico etc. Their character voices are more extreme in regards to the personifications, which make them less "natural". I remember having a similar discussion with a friend back when I was less fond of Kotori, and he made the same point, of her voice being harder by default to maintain in a song.

The point I was making in my post however, was more that I feel even if Aina Kusuda (Nozomi's VA) were to sing in her most natural voice, Nanjo would still be better. It doesn't help that Aina has to try and sound like Nozomi, but if you're looking at the end results, what it means to me is that Nozomi is the weakest singer. But hey, that's just my opinion. I love Nozomi regardless.

You need to listen to her solo of 僕らのLIVE 君とのLIFE then. I think this is the song that turned me around and made me realize she's actually a good singer. This is what she sounds like when she's not in chipmunk-mode, and my god it's good. (If you listen to the 3rd Live of WonRush she also sounds *incredibly* good, since she's singing more naturally than in the PV). The "chu~n chu~n chu~n chu~n" at 3:50 nearly gave me a goddamn heart attack.

>>102205546

>>
>>102205668
i agree with you but none of that matters since literally all of the other members follow her lead...she'd always be the leader as long as that dynamic continued
>>
>>102204932
Honoka is the glue that sticks Muse together, Without her, the group would just fall apart. They could have decided to continue after Honoka quilted, But they didn't do that. The reason is quite simple that there's no one to push them forward anymore. Eri recognized it more than anyone else and she decided to put the group in hiatus.

Without Honoka:
_ No Umi & Kotori. They have made it clear, especially Umi, that Honoka is the sole reason for them to be in an idol group.
_ No Maki. She also has to fight between remaining idol or drop music to focus on study for becoming doctor. Without lyricist, costume designer and inspirational leader, a practical minded Maki would see no point in continuing,
_ No Eri. Eri was Honoka's rival in ideology. After she was won over by Honoka, Eri knew that without this girl, there is no Muse.
_ No Nozomi. She thinks the same as Eri.

Thus, you see that only Nico and Hanayo (who have intense passion for idol) and Rin (who follows Hanayo) were continuing. But they are destined to fail because they have lost all creative people.
>>102205668
Umi can't be leader because she's too shy for that position.
Eri can't be leader because she used to be an antagonist of the group. Maki and Nico would not have listened to her if not for Honoka. You should notice that all Eri's suggestion have to go through Honoka before the group act on them. Furthermore, Eri can't bring the "fun" into being idol. Her leading method would make the group dry like the Student Council. Rin or anyone else is not exactly genki.

It's not much of a question whether Honoka keeps the group together- my issue with her being the leader is the lack of her mental strength.

She is the glue, shes the reason they even went out on this journey in the first place. Without her the group wouldn't exist and minus her breakdown she does a pretty good job.

Besides its not like its a dictatorship. Every member is important. Everyone has their role and Honoka role is just keeping everyone together. WIth out her none of them would even do this shit

Niko would still be alone trying to be an idol, Kotori would just leave, Umi would just do archery and studies, Eli and Nozomi would just run council, Maki would probably just be a tryhard for academics and Hayano and Rin would just continue to chill while obsessing over idols.

"Leader" doesn't really exist but Honoka was a big reason any of this happened, thus she has the role

>>102206669
Shes only human. One person can only take so much pressure and stress before they break, especially when you're the one everyone looks to to keep it positivity. Shit is really stressful, its not like she didn't learn from it and do what was right in the end anyway

The only thing about their dynamic that bothers me is how helpless Umi and Kotori are without her. Umi is just as close with Kotori as Honoka is but she does nothing to try and prevent Kotori to leave, rather just accepts it.

Okay so I'm actually going to try and address the issues people have with Honoka's breakdown and the subsequent drama that occurs in the final episodes of Love Live, because I feel it's something that's largely misunderstood and gets more hate than I feel it deserves. This is a pretty long rant so I'll have to break it into 3 parts.

[Part 1]

Firstly, let me start by saying that I did not enjoy the "drama" the first time I viewed it, largely because I felt it was out of place, and really disliked the lack of initiative Kotori showed in regards to handling the situation.

With that being said, to anyone who believes Honoka's reaction was "stupid", unwarranted or unbelievable and forced, I have to say it's not as far off as you might think.

This is something that more comes from life experience, but even if you're young you might be able to relate. Any time you truly focus and dedicate yourself to something, as Honoka did with μ's, you lose a lot of perspective on things, since you're so invested into this one particular aspect of life. If you've ever personally tried really hard at something, maybe you can understand this. For the younger people in this thread, that might be your studies, sports or hobbies. For those of you my age or older, it'd be work, or hobbies that you still hold onto.

[Part 2]

Now imagine that you've been working at this one thing for weeks, months even. Every bit of you is attached to this, and if something doesn't go well, it can mentally break you. I know, from an outsiders perspective, it isn't much. You really have to experience it personally to understand what I'm talking about here. Keep in mind this happens as a result of whatever it is taking up a LARGE percentage of your life. Anyone who leads a balanced lifestyle will be more adept at brushing such things off, since they have a better sense of context and perspective that allows them to move on without being too caught up in it.

But in this case, Honoka IS caught up in it. She's deeply invested, μ's is the group she formed with her 2 closest friends, and despite how many hurdles and trials they've faced, each time they have managed to overcome them and move forward, as a group. Come episode 10, they are SO CLOSE to their goal. This is the performance that will decide whether they can maintain their ranking. Honoka is sick. It starts raining for their outside performance. Guess who fucking motivates the group to do it? Honoka. They performe No Brand Girls, then Honoka faints from her fever. After all her practice and effort, it's not the group who falls short, but her. Imagine the mental burden and guilt from knowing that.

[Part 3]

Now imagine recovering and having the group tell you they decided to withdraw from the event you were all trying so hard to get into. Most of you won't even be able to relate to such a feeling of letting not only yourself down, but those closest to you. Whatever, Honoka takes it in stride, returns to school and they all get back into the groove of things. Now for some fucked up reason, is the time Umi decides to tell the group Kotori's leaving, because Kotori was unable to earlier. Put yourself in Honoka's shoes. You've been best friends with this girl from childhood. You made promises to always be together, and thus far, you have. Everyone managed to move on through the strength of their unity and friendship, and now, out of nowhere, she tells you she's leaving. Anyone who thinks Honoka is weak for acting the way she does is living in a fairy land. On top of all this, you have to keep in mind Honoka is a high school girl. She's not a fully mature adult, and I've seen many adults handle lesser situations with far less grace and composure.

Now I'm not arguing Love Live is the deepest show, or that it's final episodes couldn't have been handled a bit better, but a lot of this hate for the "drama" seems to just be people bandwagoning and throwing around stupid words like "forced" thinking it makes them clever. It doesn't. Honestly, my biggest complaint with how the final episodes were handled largely falls on Kotori. People give Honoka a lot of shit, but honestly she reacted fairly reasonably given the situation.

That's just my 2 cents. It's frustrating seeing people not understanding that. Honoka is a lot stronger than people give her credit for, and anybody who's ever tried their hardest to do something should be able to empathize with how she reacted to her best friend declaring she'd be leaving, them being pulled out of Love Live (without asking her) and her feeling guilt for letting the group down from her passing out.

This is the internet, anon. You can do whatever you want. With that being said, I doubt you'd have much reason to post it again, since anyone that I wanted to read this rant (Love Live fans) is most likely in this thread already.

I'm actually quite enjoying these off-season threads. It's just really nice to discuss stuff like this with people who actually enjoyed the show, there's not really a substantial fan-base anywhere that lets you do that (unless you live in Japan).

Is that the first thing you thought of? That it tries too hard to be dark and unique.

This ending was practically ripped from LL's Kotori arc. And it has the possibility of two Idols who most likely won't leave the group.

Anyway, I'm sitting back to see how Touko is going to write her way around the fact that Airi and Nanami can't leave because Avex or DiveII want to cash in on a long-term asset. We all know how controversial the LL ending was.

We've already blown them out of the water before the show began airing.

I've been thinking about the last 2 episodes and I say LL is the I-1 to the WUG. Lantis/Dengeki/Sunrise have had 4 years to promote and develop the franchise. WUG is a new franchise threw everything in on the first go. It'll take a while for them to reach LL's popularity.

Yamakan got a severe kinghit from the Im@s movie and another one from the LL Saitama Concert. Im@s will be performing at Saitama in a few days (with all 3 franchises!). So that's another massive hit right there.

Afterwards, we just wait for Aikatsu to kick the twice dead corpse.

The Lantis Alliance will put that bastard in his place.

And I wonder if we should start calling it the Year of Idols since next season is chock-ful of Idol Shows.

Or KotoMaki.

I say the following are reasonable Nico pairs without being crack

NicoHana- Both Idol Otakus
NicoMaki- Obvious reasons
NicoHono- Honoka goes with anyone.
NicoKoto- They keep designing lewd outfits for their fellow Idols to wear. It seems like their minds are on the same track. Although then again, it's more likely they just want to see some more skin from their waifus.
