    It's a little saddening that people think like that at times. I do understand the need to give other girls the spotlight from time to time but just because they're the 'main' girls doesn't mean you should shaft them in popularity polls for others if you in fact do like them over the others in the first place!

    I've been meaning to watch through iM@S as well, specifically Cinderella Girls. I've only mostly gotten into that through art but I really like Shiburin's and Uzuki's designs.

    As far as my love for Hanayo...I don't actually eat very much rice myself! Think of it like a Phoenix Wright conversion where they change ramen/rice into burgers! XD...I do actually like eating rice whenever I can though. I feel like a lot of people undervalue Hanayo's singing voice in general, and indeed, Printemps is my favorite subunit as you could probably tell from my listing lol.

    I'll say more on Steins;Gate later, gotta go to my wrist therapy for right now. I need a PhoneWave (Name to be determined) in my life right about now.

    Edit: Especially since I got the time wrong and I was an hour and a half late XD.

    Anyway, Steins;Gate is one of the very few instances of time manipulation that I actually enjoy. Its not that I would enjoy the ability to try to change the past, but the futility of trying to do so just amused me in a way I never thought was possible, just by adding alternate dimension 'world lines'.

    ...Thinking back on it, the Faris route near the end really had me tear up.

    Hehe, yeah Nozomi is great. It makes me a little sad that a good number of people dismiss her tactics as solely sexual harassment (which it is, no doubt), but to me, it's really funny and I'm pretty sure that was primary intention.

    As for Heinz, I had similar issues with Elfen Lied (anime) regarding morality.

    My list post-sunshine is a bit different from before since Maki is more tolerable to me now.

    Hanayo > Kotori = Honoka > Maki > Umi > Nozomi > Rin > Eli = Nico

    I just find Hanayo too adorable to not have her at the top and its hard to choose between Koto/Hono second. Both of them have their strong points, character flaws aside! (You know what I'm talking about lol). The bottom 4 was usually static for me side from Maki becoming tolerable enough to move up a few spots. Not that I dislike Nozomi or Rin of course! Eli has a certain mature charm about her but its not really enough for me, and well...Nico is Nico lol.

    Speaking of, am I wrong in thinking Honoka and Chika do poorly in popularity polls mostly based on the fact that they're overwhelmingly the center in so many songs and not because of their character traits or flaws? It's just something that sits wrong with me.

    Okabe is a pretty nice male lead. A little bit uh...coocoo if you catch my drift but its good for morale and as you said easy to get behind~. Kurisu is indeed a tsundere done right, which is why she's one of my all-time favorites! One of the things I liked most about the plot was that I felt so bad for Mayushii and had me thinking "How can I possibly save this girl if everything I do results in her getting killed no matter what?". Dilemmas like that really get you thinking.

    Not gonna lie but their character designs are what initially caught my attention. Well, technically Kotori was my first best girl, but now she's thirdish. After that, well, it's like you say. Loyalty is an admirable and noble trait in my eyes. There were times where I wished that Nozomi would be the leader rather than the support, but I feel if that were to actually happen, I would lose a little interest.
    I tend to favorite the "underdog" frequently. The one who's there and leaves you wanting more, kind of. Someone who by all means could take the spotlight but chooses not to, or tries to and fails.

    Likewise~ I hope the discussions don't just stop just because the season is over though

    Anyway, as far as the original Love Live! ...perhaps! I feel like I haven't binged on it enough and would love to discuss it with someone else other than my artist friend over at DA~. Its weird how after not watching the original or really listening to Muse much outside of SIF since my wrist broke made my opinion of Maki shoot up for some reason, cause I think I had her at #7 in Muse and now she's at #4. (I blame pulling a yolo Magician Maki a month ago lol).

    Steins;Gate is another one I'd like to discuss someday. Actually, I hope S;G0 gets a translation soon. What little I've heard of it I'm into. That said, I don't remember THAT much of the anime and its been a while since I've played through the VN.

    As for Fall 2016, I'm not much of an anime person, much preferring to read manga!...BUT Working!!! is one I've been meaning to watch and its getting a new season apparantly. That said, after the season starts if you find any that are pretty good let me know and I'll give the first few episodes a try~.

    You look very traumatised by the conclusion of two certain shows.

    Hope you recover soon.

    My post was a bit hyperbolic due to certain things putting me into a foul mood, but yeah, I was more than a little upset with the direction of episode 13 and since my impressions of a whole show tend to lean heavily on the last few episodes I can't help but feel resentful towards the entire 1st season of Sunshine after being left on this sour note. I do agree that the live performance was one of the better ones in the show, although I still prefer the fantastic one in episode 9 (helps that Mijuku Dreamer is an amazing song full stop).

    I can still make excuses and say that the episode was only the way it was because they were desperate to make an episode that felt conclusive and that S2 will demonstrate Aqours in their best form, but for now I'm leaning towards pessimistic. At least I have that 3rd Aqours PV to look forward to; I've never disliked a single Love Live PV out of the 8 I've watched and I've always been excited for the next one.

    It's way way too early to get excited over it (assuming it'll even happen), but yeah as I mentioned in the episode 12 thread I really like the idea of a Love Live 3rd Generation especially if my guess is right and Sunshine's overdose on references and similarities is simply intended to get the audience used to transitioning to new characters and settings. In the meantime though there are a lot of other fish in the sea; despite the disappointments on the idol front 2016 has been a pretty good year for anime.

    Oh no i still love Muse and Umi the most. The SS characters that i like are Chika, Riko, Hanamaru and You (only as a character, her voice is....weird like Kotori and Maki, but Kotori sounds cute and Maki still sounds great, while You is just weird). I can't stand Yohane as a character, but her voice sounds great and she has thunder thighs. I have bought tons of merchandise with a few copies of their Bluray boxsets. I have no intention of buying any Sunshine material besides a Chika or Riko Alter figurine in the future, but that is about it. Still no release date announcement on the Muse Solo Live vol. 3 it seems - -

    But looking back on it as a whole, SS really is a mess with no replay value, besides their performances. I do think the good episodes make up for it though. They are over hyped and will get a 3rd season for sure, hopefully they can tone down on the silliness and be more consistent in the next two seasons.

    What are your opinions on the SS characters?

    For the characters i cared for and that i think are important, then yes. But i would have to agree that the 3rd years are done pretty bad with how their attitude turns 360 immediately after their drama was over. I just have the impression that SS will have 3 seasons since the 3rd years are barely on screen, hell Kanon can't get more than 3 seconds most of the time. The situation with You, Riko, and Chika is far from over and they are essentially my main focus and i believe that is what SS wants us to focus on in season 1. Character wise i am just looking at the 2nd years for now and i think they did a great job.

    As for writing it is a toss up because they flip flop all over the place. You get some strong episodes such as 4, 8-11, while i would consider the others fairly poor. The original is more consistence for sure though with plenty of just as good episodes too. Another thing is that i agree with you about SS being very spontaneous in their music performance with zero to barely any lead-in with episode 6 insert being one of the "WTF". One thing i could say for certain is that SS does have THE POTENTIAL to be great if they can be consistent. Their weakest point is really their consistency and i want to emphasize on it. A lot of what i believe is really on their potential since they have some great episodes and experience from the original to work with.

    Anyways don't take that comment on the thread too seriously, i was just getting crewed out because i am not on the entire bandwagon 100%. If you swapped out most of their anime insert songs with their debut and sub-unit songs, then i would have no problem with any of the music in the anime. Not that they are bad, but they already have better stuff just sitting around. It seems if you don't like some of their music due to style and genre, it means you think they have no talent and are horrible. There are Muse songs that i can not stand like Puwa Puwa and After school Navigators, but nobody assumes that you hate the band. It seems the SS fans can't take any criticize and call you for being salty for Muse, not because you don't like Pop/Jrock fusion.

    With our contrasting impressions on the final episode of Love Live Sunshine's first season, it's weird to look back and see that I was the more optimistic person about this anime in the first 2 episodes.
