1. Next live will be in 2015
2. Pacific Racing Team will be doing a collab with Love Live
3. Love Live! Pizza Hut Project begins on the 24th.
4. School Idol Festival will be translated into English, Korean and Chinese in time for the Second Season
Who else wants to Pile on Maki?
I would on Kotori.
I saved this from the front page without ever having read / watched Love Live. That is one really fuckable girl.
The thing about her stage name is that it makes it onerous to do searches for her.
Welcome! Please don't sexualize Maki, though.
>The thing about her stage name is that it makes it onerous to do searches for her.
This is extremely frustrating.
>Please don't sexualize Maki, though.
She doesn't need anyone's help for that.
General threads please go.
Rin is the cutest LL.
Dem thick thighs.
Why'd they draw Nico with purple hair and tits?
Optical illusions don't help if you can tell they cropped 40 pixels off her line.
Fat where it matters.
Rin looks like a little boy.
This is starting to bcome obnoxious.
It is semi-canon, deal with it.
I'm still angry they didn't develop further on her tomboy complex.
Rin and Hanayo are secondary characters anyways.
I'm upset that FFF didn't add in her "nyaa".
One day, there will be a General for all the Idol Shows
You, I like you
so basically, WUG general?
>so basically, WUG general?
Huge shitstorm where everyone fights over pointless, redundant shit?
Holy shit this artist. I might start liking HonoMaki because of him.
>Pacific Racing Team will be doing a collab with Love Live
What does this mean?
>you will never be groped by Nozomi
>you will never grope Nozomi
Kotori finally seems to have regained her popularity after the drama with dear leader Honoka that left both Kotori and Umi in the dump in PV6 ranking (Honoka is too stronk). First survey of the year had Kotori jumped to 1st place after being last in PV6 general election
1. Kotori +8
2. Nico +3
3. Honoka 0
4. Rin 0
5. Maki -4
6. Nozomi +2
7. Umi 0
8. Hanayo -2
9. Eri -7
I just realized, with girls like her you can grope her from further away.
I don't think there is a cuter idol than Maki.
That means Idols + Race Car, a perfect and natural combination.
Does this mean I'll see lots of cars with LL! stickers on them while walking down the street?
What the fuck
Why did Eri drop so far and Kotori move up so much? Did I miss something? Glad Rin is still up there though.
Eventually WUG will get bigger with CDs and lives out there too, not as big as others, but still, so i don't see why not.
>tfw I'll never rich enough to buy Bentley Continental GT and put favourite raburaibu decal on it for shit and giggles.
Fucks sake nips make up your minds.
It has been out there since forever. For shame that we don't live in Nip land.
That is one of the greatest things ever.
But Umi isn't lewd.
After all this time, i still fail to understand Kotori's appeal. Not that i don't like her, but i don't get her super popularity.
I really don't want another Kotori center
some drawfag should fix her face
Kotori has always been popular. Remember she won PV5 election. People probably hated her for hurting Honoka in the anime, but that seems to be forgiven. Kotori is a lot more popular in Japan so she just recovers her position.
Eri has also been an average -to-below performer in previous polls. Maybe this is the sign that people are forgetting S1?
Bird-chan's design is very well received in Japan. She has originality look on her. I don't remember any anime character with this look.
>9. Eri -7
foul play confirmed that's fucking impossible
Honoka is centre in 1st, 2nd, and 4th PV
Nico is in 3rd PV
Kotori is in 5th PV
Maki is in 6th PV
Who will win da centre in next PV?
I like her because she's absolutely adorable and I love her voice. And her hairstyle is great, too.
But these are just my opinions.
I think we all nyeow the answer to that nyon, anyon.
i uh like her mom
I'd like to some Rin nyan for sure.
Tell me what you're thinking, anon.
I voted for Maki last time because she's my favorite
, but this time Eri, I will make this happen on /a/ at least
Believe it or not, Eli is the centre in Mermaid Festa Vol.1.
Maybe if Eli win da centre, we will get Mermaid Festa Vol.3?
Isn't that just ep 8's screenshoot? You missed Eri's wink.
Where were you when shit went down?
Bracing for the shitstorm of the season.
I didn't take it myself, anon.
I hope s2 doesn't have Maki-hospital drama
hovering over screenshot hotkeys.
sadfaces get me excited
>sadfaces get me excited
You're a horrible man
My heart was squeezed watching Honoka's sad face. I ended up having a terrible day.
>not being a sadistic cunt
being nice is overrated, anon
How was /a/'s reaction at the time?
This is still the worst moment for me, because I actually wasn't expecting it.
What's on the second Nicorinpana CD? I can't really find much info about it.
Yurika Kubo (Hanayo's seiyuu) is in a new idol seiyuu group, Underground Princess.
Other members are Yui Watanabe, Satomi Akesaka, Mai Fuchigami, Hibiku Yamamura. Last two are also from that Arpeggio mini-unit.
Manga scan never ;_;
So far no more info on that. I've checked amazon but there's nothing more in the description.
no, no feels

Is Yamakan even trying at this point?
My only exposure to Love Live is the anime and a little bit of School Idol Festival.
What else do I need to go through to be "caught up" with the franchise?
WUG is an embarrassment to to the niche/culture/whatever you want to call it
Another thread another good week
That's pretty much all you can do. The other option is to listen to a lot of the songs, but things like drama CDs are hard to follow if you don't know Japanese well.
Here's my experience.
I knew about LL! about 9 months before the anime aired, when the anime was first announced. I decided to not get into it before the anime because I knew there wouldn't be anything to really follow.
Even now, I do pretty much what you do. I watched the show, play the game, listen to the music, and watch the music videos sometimes. There's not really much more. It's just about enjoying what there is and you can participate in threads like these if you want.
LL has cuter girls, less drama, less bad world ugly realism.
What otaku would want to see idol anime how ugly in reality that profession is behind the scenes?
A show based on realism isn't bad, but WUG is just shit in execution
As a modern idol anime otaku, I can confirm.
WuG is kind of hard to watch sometimes.
The girls are about to put on a performane! AAAAAND one of the girl's elderly friends is in the hopstial.
The girls found a job working at a bar!
AAAAAAND they're getting sexually harassed.
It gets kind of uncomfortable and not as much fun to watch.
LL!, on the other hand, is cute, colourful and fun (for the most part).
I hope second season has more of this
Most episodes had a "molest Maki" quota that needed to be met
There's are a lot of things to do if you're really into it.
- Read the LL manga.
- Watch the Live concert (there are 4 of them already).
- Listen to all the songs & OST (there are ton of songs released).
- Follow the regular radio broadcast by the VAs.
- Read the School Idol Novel.
- Watch the extra material Love Live chibi version.
- Buy the new Vita for the next game.
- Subscribe to Dengeki to get interviews and first information about LL.
Wug was not intended to fight others idol anime... right?
Love Live is school idol, not professional idol. Thus, they can realistically neglect any baggage that the industry has.
WUG is full of drama and negatives. The animation is bad and the songs are uninspiring. No wonder it feels like a chore to watch.
Maki chuuni anyone?
>Dump all your gifs!
Well, if you insist.
>Eri's playful face
Her gap moe is unparalleled.
Of course not. Wug was just to double "save" the anime and idol industry.
(Are the reply timers longer recently?)
Why don't we just dump the entire anime here since it's so giftastic?
Did you get that gif from Tumblr, by chance? It's got that terrible washed-out "Tumblr tint" to it.
Guilty as charged.
Have a Honoka.
My favourite gif.
Is anyone still playing the mobile game live?
I just started playing a week ago. Right now I'm just waiting for version 1.7 of the APK to be uploaded. Apparently ETA is less than an hour.
Flustered Maki is the best thing.
A-Rise will win the s2.
I hope so
CAN I DO A NAKED BABY
It will be revealed that
The reason Aoba can maintain the base wave length at all time is he isn't supposed exist in the first place.
Goddamn, I love her thickness.
I want the fat idol.
I must have her.
Hopes and dreams.
But there is no fat idol
Nozomi is a fatty fat and you don't even try to deny it.
Got some official art/weight chart as proof?
All weights are confidential, apparently.
>Putting anyone next to the character that is the most child-like
>this body will never be canon
Such a shame.
Will Umifag ever return to our mortal plane?
He's dead, but his love will live on.
Alright, I'm going to try this
I'm going to give so love to Hanayo because she really need it.
Personally, I like Nozomi
Why didn't you choose me, Honoka?
that all I got
Don't forget this.
Who is this and what has she done with Hanayo.
That's Hanayo after too many rice bowls.
>167 posts when I come back
OP here, I am proud.
Mainly because of that thingamabob ponytail she wears.
I don't think I've seen any girl try to do her hair like that.
Current arc in WUG has not one but two girls possibly leaving.
As LL fans who've watched a similar story arc, how do you think Touko should resolve this? We're also presuming that they won't disband until Avex makes enough money from the franchise.
1. Download Best Album and listen to it. It's a compilation of most of the songs released before the anime.
2. Read the manga if you know Chinese at 99mh.
I'm watching it and I was the first who got hyped for it.
I'm not going to criticise Yamakan for criticising Idol management. It's fair criticism after all.
I guess the main problem is that the execution is bad >>102261126. Mid-way through the Minami episode, we suddenly got a dramabomb. I don't like melodrama for the sake of melodrama, and unstoppable tears every 2 episodes. It's why I hate soap operas and that one Korean Drama I watched.
The characterisation needs a bit of working on. Kaya barely gets any lines even though it's implied she's very independent with the number of part time jobs shes picked up. I'm wondering what is Matsuda's role. It's Tange who has the connections and makes the major decisions.
Other times, the characters seem a bit over the top. Just look at the last episode. The Manager of I-1, despite having a sold-out crowd tries to ply it off as WUG ruining it all. And then we pan to their concert and there's only 4 people watching them.
>Mid-way through the Minami episode, we suddenly got a dramabomb. I don't like melodrama for the sake of melodrama, and unstoppable tears every 2 episodes.
I'm the same way. How did you feel about the last few episodes of Love Live!?
I personally found them kind of silly, but it was okayish because I knew that it would all end up happy in the end.
I know why it wouIdn't make sense but I was not happy about no special costumes for Start Dash,
I didn't really like that either, but I was more disappointed that they never actually participated in Love Live! I mean, the show is called Love Live!.
I also kind wanted a new song at the end in the same way that iM@S had a new song in its last episode.
Wait for season 2, anon. It's not going to be like K-ON when they strive for budokan and end up doing absolutely nothing.
Season 1 was about setting up the premise and making mu's. Season 2 is where all the shit's going to go down.
What about the 3rd years graduating? Or do they still have a few months left at school?
Agreed. WUG's writing has absolutely no concept of subtlety and it's making it impossible for me to take anything seriously.
Typically school ends near February for Japan and they're still in their summer uniforms. I suspect they have a few months before the third years graduate.
I love seeing Nozomi suddenly all submissive.
As in, school graduates in February, but they're still in their summer uniforms. This suggests that they're still very early on in the school year, meaning they have a few months before graduation.
Yeah, sorry I didn't get that right.
Oh. I just assumed that since they already had the summer episode when they go to the beach house that they were closer to winter than summer.
I'm assuming it's already Autumn or late Summer by that time when the holiday ended and school starts again. Also, it has rains.
They mentioned something about the rainy season too. Japan typically has its rainy season June-July so we can assume it can be anywhere between early July to early September, in that case.
You mind sharing me the link?
Nevermind, found one.
>The Manager of I-1, despite having a sold-out crowd tries to ply it off as WUG ruining it all. And then we pan to their concert and there's only 4 people watching them.
This was my final nail in the coffin to the "realistic idol show" premise
Does she need to be all rapey though?
I disagree. Her rapist natures were needed to capture Kotori when she was running away from the others in her maid uniform. She also has to rape the three bakas to keep them in check.
It's a crucial part of the idol group.
You're giving me flashbacks to the original Negima anime.
that's a good point.. they wouldnt have even been able to perform because their grades if not for her aggressive molestation
He lives on in all of us.
Rin Shake imposter please leave, you tarnish Rin Shake's good memory
He's in a better place... living his peaceful life with his waifu. I am envious.
Rinshakes isn't dead though?
someone please tell me the story of umifag
He was an umifag. The end.
You're right. He lives on in all us Rinfags.
great story i read it twice
Wasn't there a graph with Raibu's popularity, where Kotori's was skyrocketing?
They managed to make a character that is really "cute", without feeling forced IMHO.
How come i'm not famous like him around here?
You're not a fag enough.
>Bloody Mary with a big fucking syringe
Which would you drink?
Haven't tried Moscow Mule yet (Kotori one).
Now I need to find some Blavod and ginger ale.
>Green Apple Syrup
>Kyoho Grape Liqueur
>Grape Fruit Juice
Marin is cute as fuck
sasuga Eri x Umi
I'd actually buy pizza hut shit if I could get the LL box
It's like they're not even trying to be subtle when shipping NicoMaki.
Who needs subtlety when you have canon
Isn't it great?
Would you do a naked baby
Leader is like Honoka.
Red is a copy of Kotori.
Purple is Umi.
Nice to see Eli's love for Chocolate was noted here.
Right one reminds me of Nozomi. She gives off that molester air, A-RISE's molester that is.
The fuck's that?
Purple (Todo) is the leader.
Too many rice bowls doesnt exist.
Guys come on
Are they getting married this season or what
Can we talk about something else for a change?
It's bad enough that it has to polute every aspect of the franchise in the most annoying and forced way possible.
Why are you so mad at people having fun?
If you ask a question you'll get answers, just choose a topic
>Dengeki G is bringing out wall scrolls two at a time
Oh, cool, I wonder which two girls are fir-
>inb4 they release one with the two of them together
The drawings look similar to ones for the Vita game.
They haven't released much images for the vita game, which ones ar eyou talking about?
I see a bit of similarity there.
Looks horrible. Why can't they make it like Idolm@ster?
Just buy it for the figures
woop, I meant to say I'm only buying it for the figures
Who /hype/ here?
I hope they release a video soon
I hope they release the english mobage translation soon.
To be honest, models looks and moves like shit. Vita can do way much better than that, might as well just release the game on PSP.
DIngo better get their shit together
Slow thread today.
Not much left to discuss.
It's almost morning where I live. Might as well stay up until work.
Her hairstyle reminds me of Azazel-san
Motherfucking captcha is now on rampage. Mistype em 3 times a row.
Why the hell people named Kotori in idol animu must be colour-coded as green?
I must admit I like Hanayo's VA more than her.
These costumes show an awfully large amount of skin.
>implying you have problem with that
I totally agree. Such a waste.
In the live she looks much more easy going and fun to be around and really tries to do her best to entertain the viewers.
She's such a good entertainer. Too bad Hanayo's character isn't anything like that.
Maki's eyes look extremely seductive here.
LL threads are always slow, but i don't see it as a bad thing anyway.
To be honest, I like it this way. If thread's too fast it feels like I may have missed something while I'm busy,
Look at those legs
Maybe there are rooms for that in S2?
It's just Maki being the most sexual rabiu
Thats a wierd way of spelling Eri.
What a wonderful taste
>eri with glasses
For what purpose
Glasses are cute.
I think there was a pic of her VA with glasses
I don't like glasses girls even when they take off their glasses,
but When girls who don't normally wear glasses put them on I get really excited
Looking at the visuals, I'm not really that hyped but we'll see how the gameplay goes.
...at least we get to hear their voices
I want to rape a Russian.
I want to hug one
Fucking Russians. Why won't they tell us their secrets?
So, wich rabu raibu seiyuu is the hottest, and why is Mimorin
Iida is so fucking delicious
Love and let live
Oh god, can't they just stop it?
It's getting really annoying.
Second from the right because nice feet.
eh ive abandoned that dimension
Nanjou or Yurika no questions.
How do you get past the nose?
Her name is Eriko Hori
I read her blog daily, she seems like a cool down to earth person.
Why is Maki/Pile the best grill/VA?
>finally got to see what the Dengeki G wall scroll looks like
>now waiting for the character CD songs
I'm always waiting for reveals. Always.
I just don't follow the real life counterparts
Didn't mean to quote. Apologies.
I don't see anything wrong with it. I could be retarded though.
I can't seem to get it to work. I keep getting a moonrune error. I don't know what i means.
Do you have the latest update?
Post a screenshot.
I've never gotten it to work. I grabbed the latest apk when I saw the facebook fanatic admins post it. I tried several times and don't know how to get it to work.
you have to update the app via App Store or Google Play
This is what it looks like.
The mobage won't work if your phone is rooted.
I am not sure if that also applied to the ios version.
That is probably the most retarded thing I've ever heard. I'm not uninstalling Cyanogenmod for that, sadly.
i heard it doesn´t work for rooted or jailbreak devices
download SuperSU and hide root in settings
Do you know what's the name of the song?...
Seems to work, now I think it's telling me to update. It comes up with a window after I get through the start window with all the girls in the grass and after I close that it restarts. Is there an update somewhere I don't know about?
Is there another error message?
This is what I got. All I saw was "version" and "play" and thought I needed an update, despite that I thought I was given the latest update.
I appreciate your help so far. I've really wanted to play this.
it´s the new update. You have to download the updated apk, check the case and you´re ready to go
Yep, you need the update
Got it, thanks!
Don't know. But now this makes me want to see Kotori Minami meet Kotori the Yuri Fangirl even more.
It's either Nico thinks that Idols should show more skin.
Or it's a trick on their husbandos to bare that little bit more.
Probably the latter. The real life concert costumes don't show nearly as much skin.
All those who worship Eli salute you.
Isn't Yoshino near-sighted?
where can i get it?
Soramaru is the cutest.
Pile is the hottest.
No. We need more NicoxMaki.
Pile and Aina formed a duet as Open-chan and Secret-chan. If you don't know who they are, they're the mascots for the Taiwanese and Japanese 7/11 stores.
Fuck this gay earth.
what Tw/Jp 7/11 story is this. Been to japan few times I havent notice this. I should as my cousin if they have seen it in Taiwan
I want to Kit Eri's Kats.
We Deus Ex now
I'd かしこい エリーチカ's かわいい, if you know what I mean.
Japan calls for aid.
START:DASH best song
Kitto Seishun > everything else
Why is the love so strong?
I could list ten "best songs" here. I can't choose only one.
I always feel great when listening to it because it reminds me of when the show was airing.
I think I saw them when I was in Taiwan.
Hopefully Big China will be let in on the fun.
After all, there are LL fans as far inland as Chengdu.
holy shit that body
I love all the different combinations of girls singing it
They released the shortened versions, I hope for full versions someday
But DAHLING! DON'T WORRY DON'T WORRY
Uchi is going to be in a Live-Action Magical Girl series series. And it looks as bad as the crappy Chinese ones I've watched
So Uchi as the Genki Pink lead.
Mimorin as her Blue Wingman.
Sora as the Obligatory Yellow Loli
Yurika as the Green Tomboy character who Uchi falls in love with...but then she finds out that Yurika is a girl.
The Best Song is the First Song.
Bokura no live, Kimi to no life
Why would you link such an awful version
Maki a cute.
SS'd from my iPad mini.
Oh god why?
Just got my SR Rin from the event score match. Anyone else got theirs?
God what a whore...
She's not a whore.
She just has a girlfriend who likes making her wear lewd outfits.
Wake up grils > Love Live curbstomped idolz > those idolmaster whores > Mr. Roger's Aikatsu
then why are you here in a LL thread?
Time for some Soldier Game
My personal favorite is Wonderful Rush, but really there is no particularly "bad" song.
What the fuck is Eri doing
She has a case of chuunibyou.
The letter E
I never noticed that
So /a/ how do you like album covers? Sexy or Retro? I am going do an album featuring the love live girls and I was wonder what you like.
What is even going on here
Does anyone know why there's a connection between Keisuke Honda and LL?
WOW my mind
In 2100, war has been waging for many years against a mysterious aliens from out of space. The unrelenting enemy has been called AKB and their allies WUG and Pretty Rhythm. Collectively, they are now as the Avex of Evil.
The new graduates from Otonakizaka Military Academy and Starlight Military Institute are called up to join the fight as part of the 76th Division under General Haruka Amami.
In the 10th episode, General Haruka dies by taking a blow meant for her sub-ordinate Captain Honoka Kousaka. With her dying words, the General tells her to become a 'Super Pilot.' Powered by rage, Honoka proceeds to wreck the shit out of General of the AKB Forces Acchan
DVD Special Drama
Listen to Nourin OP.
why does love liveu make me so horny
Live on, LL thread
Because Maki is in it
Glasses make everything cuter.
Is this an abomination?
Yes, for multiple reasons.
So we know what we think of WUG.
But what about Nourin and SuperSoni?
Bibi: Eli walking in on Nico and Maki
Printemps: Hanayo getting awkward as Honoka and Kotori are unable to keep their hands off each other.
Lily White: Rin gets amused while Umi and Nozomi fight over Eli.
>starry sky Rin
>west Mahime Kino
GoogleTranslate is amusing as always.
Something like that is probably in the work right now.
Episode 6: Princess Maki dies by taking a blow meant for Lieutenant Nico. Dying in her mecha, Maki proclaims that she 'was glad to meet Nico.' With tears falling down her eyes. Nico goes blind with rage and unleashes a torrent of blow against her killer The Mad Miyu.
Please no sunrise I don't want an another valvrave abomination.
I'm thinking more along the lines of Xenoglossia with a touch of Gundam.
Episode 4: Haruka meets her rival for her Exclusive Mecha. Ace Pilot and top student Aoi. Despite some initial disagreements, they become friends. Later on, they team up in battle and render an entire Unit of Pretty Rhythms combat-ineffective.
I don't remember that part in the OVA, Maybe I need to watch it again.
Maki at all ages is the sexiest.
My heart goes doki doki whenever I see Maki
B-b-but my mecha anime tropes.
You always kill off the Best Characters to motivate the MC.
But where's MY motivation to continue watching the show if my favorite idol is dead?
>You will never share the same scarf as Maki
>You will never have Nico share her scarf with you.
This is far worse in my opinion.
Why is Eli best Love Live?
Because she's the student council president.
Both don't exist.
Even if they do, they will be together instead of us.
Retro looks nice.
Agree, being the president is a big part of her appeal. It adds to her presence of authority.
You guys should pretend to be Nico/Maki and share scarf with each other.
