I thought I’d give Love Live! a shot because it was recommended to me by a few people and it was short, 13 episodes. Although, the story was predictable, I found the episodes easy and relaxing to watch; I fit in one or two episodes before bed.
There were only two memorable scenes for me in the first season. In the first scene, the hype train of their idol group µ’s hits a small speed bump before continuing on to the road of happiness and sunshine – which also describes the series in a nut shell.
The second scene packs in a few things: an awesome club room filled with lots of merchandise referencing a troubling trend of materialism and that idols are characters, explained but Nico’s cringe worthy “Nico Nico Nii”.
Although, nothing out of the norm happens I will probably continue the series once I finish up on a few others. Also, one of the positives of this series is that there is so much extra content for it.
