Pre-season Special / Episode 0

A fun little recap of Season 1, though they sadly didn't comment at all on any of the yuri-esque goodness. Also some behind the scenes stuff including a glimpse at the work Aqours has been doing in the real life town the show is set in. After watching Sakura Quest for the past couple of seasons, this was actually the most interesting part to me. Cool stuff and I can't wait for Sunshine to kick back into full gear next week.

Episode 1

Damn, so good to have this show back again and the first episode delivers in pretty much every way you'd want it to. It even brings a real emotional punch. There aren't many times I can recall where a first episode actually had me tearing up. The new OP song is really good though I'm not sure it's on the same level as Aozora Jumping Heart. The new outfits with the coats are great though and I'd love some figures with that costume. The new ED is excellent and probably one of my favourite EDs in a long time. The scene on the bus needs to have a clean version gif ASAP. A few of the characters still don't really jive with me as we're only one episode into the season and I'm already over the Yoshiko/Yohane gag. Mari continues to possibly be my favourite character in Sunshine even though she still can be very grating. I did love the "I don't speak Japanese" gag with Kanan on the pier. In fact, that whole pier scene with her and Kanan was just magic. Watching Mari try to hold it together but just break down in Kanan's arms. Perfect.

Excellent start to the season and I can't wait for more.

Episode 1

The second term has started so they plan to have a open house to attract more students to there school. They even plan to hold a concert and start looking for a place to practice. Things get complicated when Mari receives a call from her father that the merge with another school will happen and they have to cancel the open house. This brings the girls down but they aren't going down without a fight.

It's amazing how much I enjoy this silly franchise. It's that darn "never give up" attitude. Even in the face of a "no-win" situation they just keep reaching.

They really need to hire some better writers.

It's a luke-warm retread of the "Save the School" schtick, and after the third time it's beginning to grate.

Episode 1

Yeah, this was about as happy-go-luck and escapist as I remembered it.

I've been on the fence about idol anime lately because I am not sure if I'm the audience for it. This season's of idol shows will definitely let me know on that.

For now, when watching this show I want to consider two things: Do I want to escape and do I want to see decent pop choreography animated finely? For now, I'm having an okay time with the comedy going on in this episode, so yeah.

Btw, the exercise forms and physics in the show is top notch..

The Love Live series is honestly one of my favourite animes so I'm so happy Love Live Sunshine is back and I honestly loved the first episode! I actually like how they're continuing the "Our school is closing down!" story line because it shows how much more difficult it's gonna be for Aqours compared to μ's because I believe μ's managed to sort things out by the end of season one?

I can see why people might not like this though and I can see why it's not everyone's cup of tea but I love the happy go lucky nature of the characters and their determination is contagious for me tbh!

And it's always good to see my best girl again as well! <3

I'm so happy to see Love Live Sunshine is back, I honestly almost cried here xD
I'm actually surprised we got some drama already.


I don't know guys, but from the start I got a different vibe watching this episode. I honestly don't know what it is, the comedy and the drama seems slightly more different from the Love Live S1,S2 and Sunshine S1 (it's not a bad thing, I really loved this episode). I think it's due to the whole story of season 1 is being about Aqours realizing they shouldn't follow Muse's steps and actually creating their own story, thus allowing the director to break through all the parallels and everything of the past seasons and artistically create a totally new Love Live now. Maybe I'm thinking too much, though xD.

Man, I'd love to see they singing Step! ZERO to ONE!, Guilty Eyes Fever, Jingle Bells ga Tomaranai and Taiyou o Oikakero!

Is it really that bad to combine with another school? From what I understand, all the students of Uranohoshi Girl's High School would join the other school's student body. The new school would have a larger student body; meaning more potential friends. Other than a transportation/commuting change, I'm not sure why this seems so bad.

That said, Aquors has an incredibly daunting task. Winning Love Live is difficult, but I think it'd be even more difficult to significantly increase the number of new students. As Rika said, they're in a small seaside town and not Tokyo (which has millions of potential students). How many students could they really recruit in that town? If they're recruiting beyond their borders, they'd have to convince families to relocate (get new jobs/houses/etc.) or have students get apartments. From a financial (or any) standpoint, that is no small undertaking.

episode 1
in season 1, we saw Chika laying on her bed and looking at the muse poster. as she stretched her hand towards "muse" (represented by the poster) and contemplated winning Love Live, she quickly remembers the results of the previous competition and getting 0 votes.
this was one of the most memorable scenes in Love Live Sunshine, and despite my criticism to season 1's repetitive idolatrization of muse (among other things), this particular scene worked wonderfully - it captured Chika and Aquors dream of becoming as popular as muse, but faced with the harsh reality of being possibly the least popular school idol group. their dreams of winning Love Live is far away....and we see this scene again in season 2 episode 1 - this time as an actual dream. so far season 2 is off to a good start.

i wonder if or when they'll introduce new characters - they often do when making a sequel. in the case of Love Live, it was Nico's younger siblings. maybe we'll see Mari's siblings this time? :p
