Love Live! Super Fan Appears in Men's Fashion Magazine
posted on by Eric Stimson
A major fan of the hit anime series Love Live! School idol project has been photographed in a men's fashion magazine flaunting his tastes.
"The Liver [Love Live fan] blood that flows through my body is boiling!"
"I found something to put you in a trance!"
The model, who goes by the name Nuppe Sōiumono, also enjoys Is the Order a Rabbit? and Tōken Ranbu.
"The 2-D wave is rippling through Shibuya now! There's no time to strike such chaotic poses."
The photos have attracted interest online (the first picture has been retweeted over 10,000 times) partly because Sōiumono, with his sense of fashion and hairstyle, evokes an ikemen (an appealing, attractive, fashionable man) image rather than that normally associated with diehard otaku. Love Live! super fans (who are called "Livers") tend to have a different sort of "geek chic," as seen below.
Among other ardent Love Live! fans, this guy changed his life around thanks to his obsession with the anime. Love Live! The School Idol Movie premieres on Saturday.
