Last minute designs, they just can't hold a candle to Umi, Yoshiko, or Konoe, probably best to skip this one unless they have veteran idols or really good current rookie talent to voice them.

So I just started Love Live like a couple weeks ago. This is great news to me, though I'm not exactly sure what all the hate is about.

It's just the same stuff that happens every time a new batch of characters come out. People said the same things about Aqours, they said the same things about the Nijigaku girls and they'll keep on saying it with every single new Love Live project until the heat death of the universe.

I ain't watch love live but i'm a big fan of the studio behind love live so i'm trying to get much clarifications and such. Does this new project separate from the other love live with nijisaki-something on its brand that they announced last april to have an anime? Or the nijasaki brand and this new project were the same?? I'm not so sure.

If Funi had streaming rights to BOTH first 2 series/seasons (the non-Sunshine series) and the movie, then I will watch the first 2 series and the movie.

I am very underwhelmed by the character design. It looks bland and boring. But it could have been worse. They could look like those butt-ugly women from a western AAA video game. The orange girl Kanon looks cute and nice, though. I love her snazzy hair bang.


“butt-ugly women from a western AAA video game”........ What in the flying Hells are you even talking about?

This is probably why cheap digs are never advised because it just winds up sounding nonsensical in the end.

All I can think of is that he wishes the women in Red Dead Redeption 2 had looked more like Love Live characters, and... well, that game would have had a very different tone.

I think the issue with this key art is the poses look awkward but the designs will probably look better in moving animation.

I agree but I think more characters are planned - also, you'd be surprised to find that most of the casts have a following,regardless of screen time. This makes it easy to keep churning out samey characters without much depth.
