So much for that old canard that Sunrise only does mecha.
I knew this studio has tonnes of potential ever since the superb delivery of Kyoukaisen

Nico is better than anyone else as an idol, but her appearance is more childish than anyone else.
It is very cute.

I like Nico too. I thought she would make a decent leader, even though Honoka is probably better as the "face" of the group.

Nico is better suited as an adviser than a leader.

The reason for that is Nico doesn't have charisma to bring people together like Honoka does. Remember she was way too demanding on her old idol team and they all left her.

Most of all, Honoka doesn't have an ego so she won't try to scheme her way to leadership.

Plus, she has amazing people skills which you need to have when things get rough. Honoka has the ability to convince the most jaded or reserved people to join her cause or hype them up when they're down.

I agree that Honaka is better as the leader in terms of being the "face" of the group, I was referring more towards the so-called operations side, which I think Nico would be good at.

It's hard for me to describe this, but I'm thinking of something similar to Luffy being the captain of the Straw Hats, but Nami is the one who's actually running the whole ship when they're travelling at sea.

We're not sure how Eri (Class President) would turn out until she's part of the crew, but as of right now; Umi would be the one to take control of the team when it comes to training and other things like that.

All you have to do is not bring it up otherwise she'll get all embarrassed about it. lol

To be honest, I have a feeling that Eri is gonna be the 2nd in command aka the navigator.

What we know so far is:

Honoka is the Leader /Umi the Lyricist

Maki-sama is the Composer /Kotori is the Choreographer/Tailor

Nico is the Idol Adviser /Rin is the Hype (man) Girl

Hanayo is the the Ultimate Idol Fan Girl

Eri - Class President and is "Haruka" amazing (Just look at that chart!)

Nozomi is a perverted shrine maiden, stalker, and groper of unripe fruits (I approve this message. )

Basically, Honoka = Amami Haruka.

To put it in pro sports terms, Nico is the Coach and Honoka is the Team Captain. Nico handles group planning while Honoka is the inspirational leader.

One thing I've been mulling over, given the similarity of this show and Idolm@ster, is whether personalities other than the Haruka-archetype would make good leaders. What would it be like if we had the quiet, brooding type as the centre of the group?

In the case of Idolm@ster, I think Chihaya, Iori, and even Mami (notwithstanding her young age) could have made good leaders. The show would obviously have a different feel given their different personalities, but they would have their own styles of leadership that could still be effective.

In Love Live!, I can envision Niko having a similar leadership style to what Iori's would have been. We don't have much to work with at this point when it comes to Eri.

As show progresses i see less and less similarities with Idolm@ster. Yeah it is about upcomming idols but no Broducer and LL girls feel less over the top.
Besides I personally don't see anyone but Honoka being capable to be a leader. Sometimes group needs an instigater a kin to Chitanda. Naiv, fearless, riding on motivation and energy rather than what are results and what are the chances to make it.
I guess the only Honoka and Haruka overlap with their little ambition shout orders and force their visions on others while haing fun and getting along with everyone. FOr me Honoka came off as more solid character than Haruka.

I agree.

Plus, a dude would mess up the whole dynamic for LL.

Keep it yuri

I don't question that Honoka fits these characteristics the most, but I was thinking more about what would happen if they were to have a leader with different characteristics. Part of my line of thinking comes from the discussion in the book Quiet about the leadership styles of people with more introverted personalities.

Of course, the setting of Love Live! as a show about idols makes it somewhat strange to have that sort of leader. Even Takamina of AKB48 fame also exhibits many of these characteristics.

Idolm@ster would of course be very different if we replaced Haruka's energy with say Nagase Iori's will to win. And Love Live! would also have a very different tone if the focus was changed to Niko's know-how. There would probably be more exploration into the cut-throat and dog-eat-dog nature of the industry, as well as the need for manoeuvring into the spotlight by capturing media attention.

Then again, maybe Eri already fulfils some of these roles seeing how she has been pulling strings behind the scenes by uploading videos of their dances.
