*reads the in-depth post Strider made*

Funimation or no Funimation, I am going to wait patiently for Hulu, and then I will have thoughts. I am still quite interested in this.

Once the initial fan-girling was over and the actual story started, I felt like it had it's ups and it's downs. I like the setting, art, and animation. There are some pretty big question marks when it comes to personalities, but that will be answered in time. The pacing seemed a bit too fast, we were introduced to the majority of the cast in just a few minutes. As for the CGI, it's done nicely. It blends very well, in contrast to how many do it. It doesn't overpower the screen is how I felt about it. I have the feeling they just did that with the OP video though, like setting up a high quality OP song because you will reuse it a lot. I feel like the CGI for the actual show could possibly get worse down the road. Don't Vorry Desu.

I can't stand it when a PV episode sums up the entirety of a first episode, I regret watching that one.

One thing I can't quite understand is what exactly it is about the 1st Love Live that really made it enjoyable. I'm terribly biased because I'm a Nico fan, so I can't quite put into words what it is about the show that makes it fun. I'm wondering if they can replicate that here in Sunshine. Are they looking to copycat the first season or do their own thing?

Should have been an hour long episode but it was still excellent. Only thing that I hope for is that they dont show too much of muse and allow aqours to take canter stage more. I already want to buy the series on bluray and hope that a US company licenses it for a home release.

Character design, pacing, and a spin-off rhythm game that seeps into the soul.

I'm hoping that now they've paid tribute to Muse/explained Chika's motivation, they won't really focus on Muse anymore. There might be something next week to explain why Riko didn't seem to know about them but hopefully not much more.

I agree. I'd still love a cameo from at least some of the original cast some point down the line but they really need to keep Sunshine as it's own thing. There are already so many callbacks in the Aquors character archetypes that they are going to have a hard time making them stand on their own without referencing Muse every few episodes. With too many references to the first series it would just be impossible.

I'm thinking Yoshiko/Yohane/weirdo Chuni is this group's Nico.

I like the music better though than in the first series. They don't seem to be too screechy like Muse.

Suspiciously, if Dia is so against School Idols, how does she know you need original songs for the Love Live event?

Well. For me, Chika is my favorite girl. I don't know why I love the lead girls. But I love her personality...

Seems like a crappy remake of the original. I didn't like it

Also anyone notice the alien girl voice acting was really bad?

Needs more Hanamaru screen time.

You know... I want to really like this, and I kind of do. The thing is, though, as things stand, it just looks like a slightly tweaked copy of the original series. I really, really hope it makes an effort to differentiate itself, and soon. I did enjoy the little cameo from μ's, and Riko being a transfer student from Otonokizaka, but it can't continue to use the original series as a crutch. Chika, to me, seems like Honoka on steroids, and I think I like her a little more than Honoka, although, that's not hard. I do wish they didn't introduce every character in the first episode, but assuming this is a single cour season, I can forgive that.

But really, I may be being a little to harsh and critical, but this episode did feel like this was leaching off the success of the original series, a little. And I feel like I can't really blame it for doing so. At least, for the opening episode.

Love Live! Sunshine!! EP 1 / Want to Shine!!

Chika chases after flyers and ends up seeing Muse on a big screen ans she wants to start The Idol Club but is met by reluctant recruits and a Strict student council president

I actually like Chika * she reminds me Of Karen ( Hello Kirino Mosaic and Yamada / Working)

You seems down to Earth but is on the swim club!

Riko the Transfer Student from Muse's HS

Not a bad start it is far enough from Love Live to have meaning
