>here you are explaining how μ's should have worked like a real idol group and just kept going and going.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe the average idol group keeps "going and going" and instead get kicked out of the spotlight when the girls get old and wrinkly.

>>26540
You're right, sometimes I forget there's a real world side to love live which it's intrinsically connected to. I guess continuing on with the 2D side of things without the 3D side would alienate more fans than sunshine could ever dream of and take the franchise.

Idols do. The groups don't. They just change members and keep going ad infinitum.
And if by 'get old and wrinkly' you mean 'turn ~20' (which as I assume you know is the age when people in Japan are considered adult, both legally and in a broader sense) then yes, they do. You might even know what they call it when an idol quits a group - they 'graduate'. Yes, graduate. And using the word 'graduate' here is by no means a coincidence, you're supposed to think of school when you hear it. So yeah this hilarious, twisted cult of youth is what permeates Japanese culture and is in no way an anime thing.

>I guess continuing on with the 2D side of things without the 3D side would alienate more fans than sunshine could ever dream of and take the franchise.
It's less about what will allienate fans and more about what will result in biggest $$$ profit. The oldest member of the old group turned 32 yesterday (I looked it up, frankly I'm a bit surprised, figured the oldest one would be just below 30) and there are a couple of others who are close to 30. The clock was very much ticking.
Taking IM@S' example Love Live higher ups must've figured they can just change the cast periodically instead of killing the golden eeg laying goose. They will suffer a blow in popularity initially I bet but it's about a long term outlook.

Anyway, I guess this was worth clearing up but I hope the thread will focus on the anime rather than the idol group which I think none of us care about.

Welp. Ep 3 went ahead and brought back all the eye-roller, unlikely drama from S1.

They gave everybody the wrong time - I'm sure that would totally happen - and then everybody and their mom showed up with the perfect timing and perfect synchronisation (all of them figured showing up to a concert at precisely the time it's supposed to start was a great idea) to save the day. And they even got to hear the final 30 seconds of the song, too! Pretty sure the girls had only one song, which is pretty eyebrow rising as well.

In other news I'm pretty disappointed Honoka Chika was such a wimp. Aren't these main girls supposed to be paragons of unyielding spirit? Being bad at giving up seemed to be Honoka's and Chika's only personality traits to begin... and then they just give up.

So yeah, this is going downhill fast. At this point it's like S1 except with even more bland characters, and I was never a fan of S1 characters to begin with.
And yes, I won't even spare a paragraph to Mari's setting.

That scene really didn't sit well with me also.
It seemed like half the city had nothing better to do than travel to a school in the pouring rain just to watch a couple of random school kids they don't know sing a single song. Not to mention they somehow managed to all sneak into the gym without making a sound and packed themselves in while the lights were off for just a minute. I'd be fucking scared shitless if I were those girls to see the place full when the lights went on, if nothing else it'd be creepy and disturbing. Besides, it also feels a bit insulting to everything u's achieved to have aqours handed this much support out the gate without earning any of it. In fact what was that bullshit before the concert about 'only' being able to fit half the school in the gym? There's no reason why they should have expected more than a dozen or two people to show up.

I wish they'd at least pretend Sunshine isn't just a knockoff. The entire ep was basically all about how the new girls are based on old girls.
There's using old anime as a crutch, and then there's trying to shamelessly copy everything.
Fortunately I didn't like old LL to begin with, otherwise I'd pretty pretty disappointed by now.
Or maybe I wouldn't be? Maybe Sunshine appeals to people who liked old LL and maybe that's why I dislike it. Who knows.

Even that alone bugs me. At first it seemed like they'd only make little nods and references to the original, but turned out the original ended up being the entire foundation for the story and events of this anime. Now it's nothing but "hey guys remember how awesome u's was?!" and it feels like they're trying to sponge off it's popularity by proxy rather than do anything original or different.
What's strange to me is the anime almost seems self awear of this. Even in the confines of the story so far it's been made clear they're simply coasting off the efforts of others and all those people showed up to their performance because u's made school idols cool. That class president has every right to be pissed at them. Aqours(and sunshine) are basically leeches.

I acknowledged that's nigh on inevitable. What I didn't expect was how bad it'll get.
>What's strange to me is the anime almost seems self awear of this.
It is, and frankly it actively tries to lampshade it (prez saying Eli was a prez, too; Ruby being another shy meek girl like Hanayo and of course Hanayo is her favorite; etc.) but it does not work. Let's do everything like original Love Live - no club room, practicing on rooftop, girl starts around a genki orange haired girl and her two friends, blah blah blah.

>>26675
I don't think she was complaining.

>>26676
Uhh, yes, that's the joke, hence Riko's reaction.

>>26680
Pretty sure the Nozo-Eli is meant to be Dia x Mari. Frankly the diver girl is the only girl that doesn't feel like a copy of an original LL girl. The rest have their equivalent. That would leave her as Maki and I can kinda see it when I squeeze hard enough but it's not the exact same thing, which is more than I can say about almost every other character.

Sorry, I took her reaction at face value. I find sarcasm is usually accompanied by silly faces in anime to make it obvious, much like they do for most other emotions/reactions.

You's (the characters; thanks Japan) reaction is meant to be taken at face value. Ruby wasn't really hidden at all but for whatever reason You didn't notice her, which leads to this <- reaction from Riko.

>>26715
Again sorry, I confused you for riko (I still haven't remembered half their names yet). I thought you meant you when you said Riko since you was the the one who said that. You seemed genuinely surprised by it which is why I asked if you was blind. I never even noticed riko until you pointed her out.

So they don't care about English, fine fair enough it's a Japanese anime. You would still think someone would see during planning that there's a problem with naming a character "You" when much of the show revolves around a group called "u's".

I haven't either. The only ones I remember are Ruby and Dia, since those stand out. The rest I look up constantly.

>>26717

First of all it's "µ's", not "u's". Second, even if it were "u's" u is pronounced ユ and You ヨウ so they don't really sound similar.
So it's purely an English thing and yeah, they have no real reason to care.

True, but Not-Honoka repeatedly pronounces it as "yous" rather than "muse".

Except you live on borrowed charm and personalities.

This week on LL not µ's: not-Nico turned out to be actually less Nico than you'd think. She fulfills a similar role but her attitude towards her fake character is mostly the opposite of Nico's as she wants to get rid of it. Surprisingly they actually made a rare, somewhat realistic portrayal of a chuuni character - someone who's neither delusional nor batshit insane, but rather a simple person who has absolutely nothing going for them but wants other to notice them nonetheless.
Kinda weird I'd say as any other portrayal (like the standard anime ones for example) would have made her cuter I think.

Weekly nitpicks (this shit doesn't make sense captain):
Just lightly pressing the power button of a laptop would simply put it in sleep mode, not turn it off. I think it worked the same way in essentially all laptops I've used (and I have used a bunch) and is simply an industry standard.
Last week Zura was incapable of keeping up with others for more than 10m while running, this week she kept up with them all the way when they were chasing Yohane. The special training must've paid off early, huh.
And of course we have a return of Lesbodynamics from Sakura Trick with Riko magically flying over from one balcony to the other and doing a frontflip while she's at it.

Now that I'm actually starting to remember what some of their names are I couldn't help but notice one of the characters wears a hat with their name on it. I originally brushed it off as being more "engrish isu kool!" kind of stuff. Is this the creator's way of acknowledging how uninteresting and forgettable these characters are and that we might need blatant guides/hints like that, or is she supposed to be really self absorbed?

Fuck right the hell off with this shit. How the hell do they expect anyone to give two fucks about any of this melodrama when they keep pumping it out so relentlessly?

Maybe it's just me but I care more when someone who's generally happy or content is suddenly going though a lot of pain and misery. When someone who's -always- miserable complains to you about how miserable they are it's nothing but annoying. That's what this anime is starting to feel like.

Did you even watch sunshine? It's blatantly unoriginal and celebrates it. It rehashes countless elements from the original series and is happy to do so. It's essentially a soft reboot where in they remake the original story but technically continue on from it. Even from a design standpoint the lead character Sunshine looks like a clone of the lead character from the original series, not to mention having practically the same personality.
>> No. 27062 [Edit]
Sunshine was made because of the scandalous nature of the first series involving the VA but not only do they set it in the same universe as the original series but all the do is promote the scandalous character of that VA in Sunshine. What more is the characters of Sunshine are markedly massively inferior to the original cast both in personality and looks. The chuuni is extremely embarrassing to watch instead to being a fun likable character and I never realized how the lack of NicoNicoNi would cause the show to be so unlikable. This series was a failure.

The entire matter is pretty damn fishy, considering the timing. That bomb was dropped just days after old cast's last concert, and a tad before Sushine anime was announced as well, although that was a matter of time anyway. That being said Sunshine project was started a good while before that piece of news went public, so things alligned a little too well to look like nothing but a coincidence.
