I recently decided to check Aqours Live and... well, it blew my mind. It's great to see how they dance exactly like in the anime. Not that i know anything about choreography but yeah.

I also once read a comment, somewhere that Sunshine!! is better as manga. Not that there's anything wrong with that but isn't too early for that? There's currently only 1 volume of it while the original Love Live! has 4 volumes. I don't know. Never mind.

Well, onto the episode:

Episode 2: Oh, Yohane. Still fun to watch as always. Seemed like there was more of her than ever.

I have to agree. Yes, I loved her in season 1, but she keeps getting better and better this season. She stole the show from all of the episodes so far

This episode didn't have the drama from last episode, but it was a nice change of air ! The only thing that bothered me was the groups they formed. I mean, when I realized they would split into small groups I was expecting Aqour's sub-units... It would be nice to see a Guilty Kiss appearance.

Kind of like they did in season 2 two of the first series? If you remember three groups that muse split up into were the actual sub units that actually transitioned a bit into yume no tobira.

Episode 3

The girls have another problem when the open house is pushed back a week and is the same day as the Love Live qualifier. Chika and the rest of the girls try to come up with a way to make it too both. There only choice is to split the group five at the qualifier and four at the open house but this isn't something they can agree on either. Instead they all perform and manage to find a way to make it back to the open house and have the concert.

Episode 3

Drama and fun all in one episode, though I do sort of wish they'd hold back a little on the drama at this point, or at least give it more room to breathe. 3 episodes in to the season and we've already had more than 3 "crisis" moments with their resolutions coming almost as soon as the crisis itself. Every episode doesn't need to be some major challenge for the girls to overcome otherwise none of the challenges ever actually feel tangible. Anyway, beyond that, great episode overall. I loved both performances, especially the first one. Great song and gorgeous costuming. I really want to see that one performed live. On the first song, though, it sounded a lot like μ's material, especially the opening/chorus which was pretty much note for note from Umi's "Watashitachiha mirai no hana." Not bad, but it had me scratching my head wondering where I had heard that song before.

That episode was just absolutely pure enjoyment from start to end.

From Mari's just absolutely perfect voice and mannerisms, the the daydream sequences with the boat and helicopter, to Yohane's "luck" powers, to those amazing Japanese idol costumes and the performances. I was laughing and grinning ear to ear the entire episode. Just such a fun show.

And every time they do that little "pop-up" face, like this episode with Riko, I just die laughing. I love this damned show probably too much.

back in the days of fansubbing, fansubbers would have a heyday with the sfx to the songs. It just is not the same anymore.

This is the only series that makes me wish that it was June 2018 just so I can import the entire series on Blu-ray and binge watch it.

Episode 3: Great outfits but the song, it's great too! Love it. Looking forward to see it in SIF, someday. But what's this? Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteru kai? also plays in the episode? Even better.

Binged the first 4 episodes so here's my thoughts:

Skipped most of the episode 0, checked the irl part, not all that great.

The first episode was pretty solid and it gets better as it goes on. I'm reminded very early on of the way the pacing is just right. It didn't take long to remember why Yohanne is best girl either. I'm totally having character amnesia here, I remember every character, but who is You Watanabe?? I remember Hanamaru well, but I don't remember You looking similar to her. Other than that the characters are great, as usual their chemistry is something to behold.

I don't consider myself a Love Liver by a longshot, but wow, that Open House performance seemed like something that we've been waiting for for a looooong time. The animation was 10/10, I think that's a main reason why a few might have bad feelings toward season 1, but already they're at it very early in the season. It's easy to tell the amount of effort they put into the show. From the performances, to the changing ED songs, and the impressive OP animation, they had to have been working hard on this since the first season ended not too long ago.

While the plot is the exact same formula they're been using for nearly a decade, they still manage to pull it off in a way that's fun to watch. I just wish plot development didn't come from a 2 second scene with a phone. I can't imagine making a scene with Mari's dad would have been that hard to get done.

Here's one big part where they massively failed: they had a huge chance to make the sub-units a part of the anime plot. I was so sure they would break off and make separate performances in this episode. It would have been impressive and innovative. They didn't do it though. Even if it was just for an episode it should have worked out. It's decisions like these that make me think they never plan on setting themselves apart from the original LL! franchise. If they don't take the opportunity here it really kills the chance of it happening later down the road. It woud be amazing if they added at least one Guilty Kiss/AZALEA/CYaRon/etc event, but that boat is sailing away at top speed.

ED song is great btw.
