Ahem. Wow, have been busy and not come here for a while and what do I see? In depth discussion, yuri goggles, yuri goggles with super glue on, lots and lots of delicious images, Eri-sama~, Maki-sama~, Umi-sama~, Kotori-chwan, Honka-chan, nico nico ni~, nyan nyan, Hanayo, craziness, Justice league, Wonder Woman, and... batman... wtf. Seems very exciting!

Some important open questions we can make predictions on...

1) Will Kotori stay with Honoka/Muse, or go Overseas?

2) Will Muse successfully put on a final 9-person concert?

3) Will Muse continue on beyond the finale of this episode, or will they dissolve?

4) Which yuri pairings will be hinted at, if any?

5) How many girls get their breasts groped by Nozomi in the final episode?


My predictions...

1) Kotori changes her mind and chooses to stay with Honoka and Umi. This is announced after her "going away" concert so that this concert can retain its emotional poignancy in the heat of the moment.

2) Yes, Muse succeeds in putting on a final 9-person concert.

3) Muse's future will be uncertain, but no definite dissolving (you know, just in case the show gets a sequel ).

4) These yuri pairings are hinted at - Honoka/Kotori (for obvious reasons), Nico/Maki (lightly).

5) 2.
Yuri? Hmm... Honoka/Kotori/Umi. Umi/Maki/Eri (Umi's a player but Eri is fine with getting her hands on anything she can her hands on). Maki/Nico. Rin/Hanayo. Nozomi is a hard one... she just gropes everyone that she can. Damn, I wish I could see Nozomi groping Eri... *massive nosebleed

The OST is due out on April 10, so you won't have to wait long to hear the A-Rise song .

This ending feels way too unsatisfying... of the S2 hooks I've seen in endings this season, this one is the most blatant. It really didn't feel like an ending and more like a mid-season episode, like as if Idolm@ster ended at episode 13. The difference though is that IM@S could've ended at said episode and it would've been a satisfying ending, while this... DAMN YOU SUNRISE, SECOND SEASON RIGHT NAO!!!!!!!

They're gonna be releasing a 6th PV soon though, so that's consolation at least, but still

Spoiler for Episode 13:

In the end, this was a great series from start to finish despite the show having a lot of frilly comedic moments and blatant advertisement to buy the single CDs. And I thought the characters grew a lot during the last 13 episode, compared to about 2-3 in idolm@ster. Though the only thing now I wish for is a 2nd season. Come on Dengeki and Sunrise you guys know you want to!

The bit I disliked the most is how predictable whole Kotori thing was.
I really think it would be much better and emotional if Kotori left and Muse had a send off performance for her.

And then have Kotori come back in season 2 saying that school was not for her and come back.
Would be far more emotional.


Otherwise nice episode and good shows over all. Better than I thought it would be and hope to have season 2 at some point especially now that A-Rise knows about Muse.

8/10 from me.

Good show overall, but it did felt like the second half got too predicable and the drama was out of place sometimes. It's no where near the iM@S level for me especially in the drama department. I'm not expecting a second season since the show may or may not sell well enough to warrant that.

Once again Maki is still my favorite.

It's selling extremely well actually so I sure hope there's a second season!

Anyways, Eri~

Was that Maki's mom that ran into Kotori's mom? Looked like they knew each other.

Predictable? Yes. But did I love it? You betcha. At the end of the day, I always viewed Love Live! as a feel good show. And in that department, it shines. The characters each have their quirks but gel perfectly together.

9/10

P.S.
Second season, we need you now! Thanks in advance.

I really like the part where ARISE is watching. The look on their faces was priceless. lol

Right after that scene, they showed Muse's captains of their years.

Eri, Honoka, and Maki aka the better versions of them.

Lowegear, where did you hear about a 6th pv?

Acquiring minds want to know. (me)

A lot of anime have the reputation of starting great, and ending great, but being weak in the broad middle in-between.

I would say that Love Live! is now an example of the complete opposite of that.

The 1st Episode was a little bit silly, and hard to take seriously at times, but still reasonably enjoyable and demonstrating real potential.

Episodes 2 through 11 hardly missed a beat, including many memorable and wonderfully dramatic moments. The show just kept steadily improving throughout almost this entire run.

But now, we finish off with a finale that is a little bit silly, and hard to take seriously at times...


I think I get what the writers were aiming for with the final two episodes of Love Live!, but I also think it was ultimately more than they could execute well in two episodes worth of content. I can't help but think that Love Live! would have been better off if they had just kept pushing Muse forward with a solid bounce back after Honoka's collapse, and if Kotori's subplot had either never happened or Honoka had soldiered on through it without ever quitting.

So to be fair, I do appreciate what they tried to do here. And there was some nice and compelling elements to it (I honestly really loved the DDR scene, as I think it smartly demonstrates one of the lasting benefits to Honoka becoming a School Idol). But some parts of this final episode are almost impossible to truly believe. Let's be frank - Nobody changes their mind on a major life decision when they're at the freakin' airport. And how the heck do amateurs pull off a packed concert on a wing and a prayer like that? I mean... wow!

I have to say, though, Honoka's dad in tears was loltastic. Such delicious cheese!


On the whole, Love Live! was a fun and rewarding watch. Episodes 2 through 11 was an extremely strong run for this show. But if ever an anime should have just played things straight, I think it was this one.

Ah well, 85/100 overall.


I have mixed feelings about a second season. Logically speaking, the 3rd years would be graduating before then, and that means Eri and your comedy relief (Nico and Nozomi) would have to be replaced. Eri was simply fantastic overall. I think she'd be really hard to replace. So would the comic value of Nico and Nozomi.

That being said, this show is selling great, so a second season is almost a definite. It's not every day Sunrise can get easy money out of a non-mecha property.

If anyone recalls, there were three sub-groups formed from the Muse members - BiBi, Printemps and Lily White - and until I remembered the groupings (i.e. Eri, Maki and Nico for BiBi etc.) I thought that was the direction they were taking the show in. As such, whilst watching, part of me thought it was a little bit of a cop-out that was solved all that little too quickly.

The other part of me then took over and shut me up, after which came the tears of happiness for the final performance of the season - genuinely loved this series from start to finish, and I'm looking forward to any future showings. A slightly more 'realistic' portrayal of the life of an 'idol', that went beyond the public persona that an idol showcases (see A-RISE in this for that kind of portrayal). Admittedly I haven't seen AKB0048 or Idolmaster but if they're in the same vein as this I will watch the hell out of them

any character development for Nico is always nice.

Though i do agree that with all the great buildup, the ending is kind of conventional. It would probably better if there's 1 more episode to the show so there's time to build on more emotional impact in the usual unorthodox ways the series has showed us so far. I wouldn't say that the ending dragged the whole series down, but it's certainly not as perfect as we would've liked it to be. So, many, cliches XD
