I like all 9 of the girls, but there is a Top 3 for me...

1. Honoka - She came off as pretty silly and ditzy in the first episode. But even here, there were some scenes that highlighted her potential as an inspirational lead character that wears her heart on her sleeve. Honoka is ultimately an highly endearing mixture of honesty, integrity, emotional transparency, sentimentality, optimism, love of life, and an admirably relentless drive to achieve her dreams and "set things right" in her own mind. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and its not hard to see why. Honoka gives substantial depth and meaning to a role that can easily come off as shallow and superficial - That of the role of the music idol. Honoka made the "School Idol" concept seem as worthwhile to me as the "Magical Girl" and the "Super Hero". She's also a Yui Hirasawa that actually works for it.

2. Eri - A great, great foil for Honoka. Though I think it sadly hurt Eri's popularity, having her be an antagonist for the first half of the show was definitely the right move. Eri kept challenging Honoka, opposing her, raising valid (if at times slightly petty) points against Honoka. The ending to Episode 3 is particularly vivid in this regard. Yes, Muse, you successfully put on a concert... but it was to an audience of less than a dozen, and Eri rightfully recognized that was the most important fact here. Eri didn't deny Honoka's dreamy optimism, but she kept Muse honest. She represented the cold, hard reality of what Honoka was truly up against. Which made Honoka's eventually victory (signified by Eri agreeing to join Muse in Episode 8) that much sweeter.

As a protagonist, Eri was a great compliment to Honoka. Someone who appreciates Honoka's over-the-top visionary nature, and shrewdly adds in the details necessary to make it feasible. Eri is strong, proactive, passionate, intelligent, focused, mature, and yes, highly attractive. She's the practical "Dream Girl" in many respects.

3. Maki - It's funny to think back on it, but it was a Maki avatar that lead me to watch this show in the first place. For pure hotness, Maki is indeed the star of this show, imo. Her tsundere characteristics are truly adorable, and gives her a personality so finely fitting for her appearance. I also like how Maki represents the music side of things. Her piano playing and singing really is great, and she probably has the best voice in the series.

Maki did ultimately slide into a more secondary role once the final arc kicked things into high gear, and that's probably why she's not higher on this list. But Maki was instrumental in adding a lot of color, fun, and heart to the earlier and middle episodes of this show.


One thing that my Top 3 all of in common is a key element: Leadership. Honoka, Eri, and Maki all have good leadership abilities. Each is the leader of their respective age category, imo. And I tend to respect good leaders.

Spoiler for You won't believe this:


LL is so big that they even got a King as a huge fan too.

I'd pay top rupees for a Start: Dash rendition from him.

That would be the most epic thing ever. Hosaka/Sinbad singing a LL song?

Just slip in another BBQ/Vegetable theme and it'll sell like hot cakes!

Make it happen Sunrise!

You got it backwards: Love Live and the entire school idol business began because of SINBAD.

1. Maki. Do I even need to say why?
2. Nico, for being an adorable buttmonkey.
3. Eri, for her overall look and sophistication, and for being the most down to earth member (along with Umi).

The one I like the least would be Hayano. She never stood out.

already voted... for Maki... simply because Niko is already a center in Natsuiro... and simply because I wish the 6th pv will be hospital themed... Blame this pic for that...



Now somehow the 'betrayal guilt' is starting to gnaw on me... I'm sorry, Niko-sama

A bit off topic, but I saw your un-edited post before. You play Tekken?

I think I know another reason why you wish for that theme, lol

All characters are available to vote... so basically in this 2nd round we vote for 1 out of 9 again? I was thinking it would be cut to... say... top 5, after the 1st round.

I don't know what you're talking about. I-It's not like I play it everyday.

It's the only way that I can describe it.

I'm still waiting for someone to draw a Ghost in the shell lineup pic with Maki in the middle as Motoko.

Their hairstyles are very similar too.
