You know, I'm not sure I really have a lot to say about this series. It isn't as plot heavy as Princess Tutu, and I guess I'm not fangirling over it as much as certain other non-plot heavy series, at the moment at least. Which isn't to say it's bad, just I don't have much to say about it.

Beach episode, as predicted last time, and we get a bit more character development. We're at Maki's house, but Maki isn't as keen to get involved in having fun with the others, as that's her way. The characters generally are getting more used to being around each other as well, and we got a few good moments. Nico trying to one up everything was pretty entertaining, as was the pillow fight.

So.. I guess this is a post to say I don't have much to post? I'm probably going to hold off on these until I actually have something to say, probably a season 1 retrospective or something. Or if something happens I want to comment on. I started with the post per episode for a series I generally had a lot more to say about, and kinda carried it over, that probably wasn't a great idea. Not that it's a bad show, it knows what it is and it does it reasonably well. It's fun.

Love Live 9

No screenshot today because it's late and nothing jumped out at me. Sorry!

Love Live is back, and we're in Akihabara to visit a maid cafe today, because the show knows its audience. Next episode looks like the beach episode too, so that's definately a thing.

It wasn't a... bad episode, all in all. Nozomi is still a creep, but it was a good episode to give Kotori a bit more character, especially since she's been around a while. We learn more about her, and why she joined Honoka to become an idol.

And... I don't really have much more to say about this episode, it was fairly light, which doesn't have to be a bad thing, even if I do have some issues with it. It's a fun show, but one that doesn't need much discussion. Nico had some good scenes again, and they pushed into another idol's terf. Will that become an issue? Stay tuned and find out, I guess.

Until next time!

I think she's copying my style

Love Live season 1 continues and how many anime am I watching right now that's involved ballet at one point or another? Clearly I have good taste. Or maybe I just know what I like.

Maybe it isn't such good taste, I think the one thought that came out of episode 7 was that I'm really not a huge fan of Nozomi's running gag and, from what I hear, it's pretty much a running theme in the series. So that's not great. But aside from that, the anime's been alright so far. It's all fairly predictable, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing if they do it well. I'm enjoying it, mostly. The characters are likable, Nico has been amusing since her introduction, and Rin is pretty cool. So much so that when I was at Hyper Japan I picked this up, despite only seeing a handful of episodes!

Which is pretty cool as well! Patch out!

Awesome sauce!

In our quest to watch more up to date anime, we've moved on to Love Live. So we're about a decade further than we were before at least! It's actually been a couple weeks since we watched the first two episodes, but luckily they had a 'Previously On' before the opening, to make sure everyone's up to speed. I'm not used to anime this plot intensive!

But continue the plot does, with or without us, as the trio (still a trio, despite what the opening wants to tell us) prepare for their first idol performance! It doesn't go entirely well, but then hey, they've still got a lot of episodes to get it right. And to fill out the rest of the cast. I'm enjoying it so far, it's decent if unspectacular. There's one or two things I'm still not too hot on, but we'll see how it goes. And yep, I'm aware I'm half a decade behind the rest of the world here!

So yeah, looks like I don't have a whole lot to say about Love Live just yet (it being so long since I saw the first episode probably plays into that!), but I'll probably have more to say once we're further along. Until next time!
