Today's apparently right in the middle between Shizuku's and Kasumi's birthday.
Hence the tag #しずかす真ん中バースデー

But is it really in the middle?

Love Live officials once released a list of middle birthdays for the Aqours cast
Of which YoshiRiko's middle birthday fell on Valentine's Day

Oh god

Though technically, that list isn't 100% correct since it uses the group member order, while it's customary to use the ship name's order.
YoshiRiko for example, should've been 07/01.

K Hey, Shizuko
K: So, today is our middle birthday
S: Middle Birthday?

K: It's a thing where two people exchange presents and stuff exactly between their birthdays
S: There's such a thing? I didn't prepare anything though?
K: It's fine, it's fine. I already prepared something, after all.
S: Huh?

K: What I mean is,
K: how about, as presents, we show each other our summer homework?
S: Do you know the meaning of "each other"? Won't I be the only one showing mine?

S: Geez, so your aim is to go to my place today?
K: Pleeease. Even if we're in different departments, our homework is mostly the same.
S: I guess it can't be helped. Since it's our middle birthday, I'll allow it.
K: Hooray.
>>
>>3526094
~Some time later~

K: Somehow it's finally finished.
S: You should do it properly next year.
K: Thanks, Shizuko. I'll give you something in return next time.
S: Nah, it's fine.
K: ?

S: I mean, spending time with you like this
S: To me, that's the best present.
K: ...!!

K: As... as long as it made you happy, I'm glad...
S: Huh?
S: Are you embarrassed, perhaps? Your face is is all red.
K: That's just because it's hot!

I miss sunshine s1.
>>
>new season already 6 episodes in

I end up taking a few months away from anything LL and already miss half of the new season. Disgraceful, even to myself. How is it so far? How's the /u/ or goggles situation? The music?
>>
>>3526407
You're lucky that there's been many delays due to the Olympics, otherwise we'd be in episode 6 by now.

>How is it so far?
Kinda meh. It feels like it regressed back to OG levels of writing and isn't trying to break any new ground compared to Nijigasaki. They haven't taken any advantage of there being only five members and stubbornly stick to the original formula, which means that Ren's screentime has suffered.

>How's the /u/ or goggles situation?
Also meh. There's a lack of chemistry between the main couple. Keke has a huge crush on Kanon but Kanon barely takes her into account. Also hints of Chisato being You 2.0.


>The music?
Katy Perry-like.
>>
>>3526408
>we'd be in episode 6
Episode 9, I meant.
>>
>>3526367
Me too. I miss 2016 in general.

>Avoid idol anime for the longest time
>2016, finally dive into LL, fall in love with the Muse girls
>Turns out their graduating just as I find them

It was nice to see Sunshine starting and all the hope I had through S1, but I wish I'd come around to idols at Muse's heyday
>>
>>3526408
>Keke has a huge crush on Kanon but Kanon barely takes her into account.
To be fair even Keke doesn't seem to care that much about Kanon ever since she's pigeonholed into the meme "pairing" with Yoshiko 2.0 for the majority of her screentime last episode.
>>
>>3526415
Based on one fucking episode?
>>
>>
>>3526408
Disappointing to hear in every aspect. I'll still give it a watch - so far the only main LL season I couldn't finish or stomach was Sunshine S2, so as long as it isn't that bad, it's probably worth a watch

What guilt?
>>
>>3526962
The guilt of having taught Ruby about Mari's feelgood game. The guilt of allowing Ruby's tears weaken her resolve when she tried to put a stop to it after she realized what they were doing. The guilt of letting her own sister sneak into her bed almost every night and letting her whisper inappropriate plans and confessions afterwards.

IMO they should add one more character so that it'll look more balanced.

>Shioriko was next to Rina before
That was the wrong one actually. Shioriko should've been to the left of Emma from the start.
The ordering was always center, left, right, left, right, left, right, and so on.

It's kinda funny and sad that Ai lost so much in season two. Her character was destroyed by the season two writers. Suffered a humiliating defeat by Setsuna and had a brief breakdown. Got cucked by a 14-year-old. And now she's routinely at the bottom end of the School Idol Channel ranking polls in JP and Global. Karin, at the very least, got a reconciliation scene with Emma and Kanata. Ai didn't get anything like that. Her entire persona as just a fun-loving girl who wants to get along with everybody was shattered after she betrayed her friends for Lanzhu, and the sudden change in motivation (wanting to beat Setsuna for popularity) didn't do her any favors.

Nah. Super Star didn't lower itself by using cheap shock value to stir up attention (and having it backfire badly as it did in AS). SS also earns its triumphant moments. Chapter 30 having to dig deep into the bond stories to create a sense of a happy ending, when there have been zero references to any of that in season two (and season one) was incredibly desperate. Most importantly, Keke wasn't written as a stereotypical Chinese tyrant like Lanzhu was during the early chapters of season two.

Well, I do think that was a bit shitty with the way the episode preview made it look like a kiss, I don't consider it shocking enough to be shock value. My definition is based on a larger scale, such as everything that happened in chapter 20 in AS. Karin and Ai betraying the club for piss-poor, out-of-character reasons. Lanzhu shutting down the Niji club and establishing a monitoring committee to prevent them from practicing and performing at school. The implication that the club's hard work in establishing the School Idol Festival was wiped out and how everyone was now believing that the Associations did all that. And Kasumi's surprise concert being sabatoged. The fact that all this shit began when Anata (Yu) was out and everyone at the club just sat on their hands and waited for her to return and fix everything (and in retrospect, actually did very little in resolving the entire mess) just made everyone looked so useless. Like a bunch of headless chicken. Pomu moping over the club being divided, but the only significant action she took in S2 was forcing Shizuku and Setsuna to join Azuna because she was jealous of Anata being excited about DiverDiva was just embarrassing. Chapter 20 was nothing but cheap melodrama that forever damaged the reputation of AS and the game spent the entire season trying to walk back from it.

>Like...?

Kanon and Keke's performance in episode three. Kanon overcoming her stage freight and finally being able to perform publicly with Keke. Nothing in S2 of AS felt earned. Even the finale finale was another asspull of everyone deciding to enter the School Idol Exhibition as a group, when they already entered and performed as sub-units.

Kanan felt guilty about Mari turning down opportunities and injuring herself for Aqours, because being a school idol was something Mari never initially cared about. (Whenever the anime flashbacked, you could see Mari being bored while Kanan and Dia were excited). All to save their school that was doomed no matter what. And that was resolved. Mari told Kanan she had no right to decide what was best for her and slapped some sense into her.

>Well, I do think that was a bit shitty with the way the episode preview made it look like a kiss,
It wasn't just "a bit" shitty.
It was a message from the writers, meaning: "haha you thought it was gay, it wasn't".
It was an insult to yurifags in general. And they had the gall to do it in the least gay season of Love Live so far.

At least the AS writers had the guts to actually go through with what they wanted to do, only backing out a bit at the end because of the hysterical waifufags.
The only thing the Superstar writers were capable of doing was literal clickbait targeting yurifags who don't nearly have as much screaming power as the waifufags.

>Kanon and Keke's performance in episode three. Kanon overcoming her stage freight and finally being able to perform publicly with Keke.
And then everything from that episode was promptly forgotten in the next episodes. You talk about asspulls but at least the AS story had a coherent flow from chapter to chapter.
>>
>>3528986
>At least the AS writers had the guts to actually go through with what they wanted to do, only backing out a bit at the end because of the hysterical waifufags.

Chapter 23 suddenly undoing the controversial actions of Lanzhu and the monitoring committee (the twins from the anime) being revealed to be on the Niji club's side when they followed to a T suggest otherwise. Not to mention Ai's new motivation for joining Lanzhu other than "wanting to be friends with everyone" (even if it means screwing over her old friends). The sudden change in the portrayal of the Associations from a serious threat to actually being a great benefit to the Niji club is also another questionable development. There's always going to be an asterisk on season two on whether or not this was the original story or if it was hastily modified after the horrific reception to chapter 20.

>It was an insult to yurifags in general. And they had the gall to do it in the least gay season of Love Live so far.

Super Star is just as gay as past series, and yes, I'm including the Niji anime on the list. Hell, you could even argue that pomu gay landing on Yu in episode 11 and just walking away at the beginning of episode 12 was equally queerbaiting as the kiss preview from Super Star.

>And then everything from that episode was promptly forgotten in the next episodes.

Why? Because they didn't get gay married in the next episode. It was still a powerful moment that advanced Kanon and Keke's relationship, as well as push them closer to forming Liella.
>>
>You talk about asspulls but at least the AS story had a coherent flow from chapter to chapter.

??? SIFAS S2 had absolutely terrible pacing and horrible handling of story threads regarding the main characters. I already talked about the contradicting developments in chapter 23, but there were also dropped plot points such as Shizuku suggesting that Lanzhu was actually on the same skill level as Kasumi, but then she isn't surprised that Lanzhu beat Kasumi in Ai's tournament. The theme of amateurism versus professionalism was entirely dropped. And Lanzhu "I want everyone to know how great I am" suddenly becomes triggered when Shioriko uses the "special" word to describe her. And the SIE tryout being pushed to the background, despite Kaoruko saying it would start immediately after they got back from training.

Where is the gay then?

>Hell, you could even argue that pomu gay landing on Yu in episode 11 and just walking away at the beginning of episode 12 was equally queerbaiting as the kiss preview from Super Star.
Here's the difference that for some reason you're missing.

>pomu gay landing on Yu in episode 11
It was treated as gay by the everybody involved. It had lasting consequences that was explored in the following episodes. It was an important plot point of the entire anime.

>the kiss preview
It was never treated as gay by the characters. Not even a blush.
It was never treated as gay by the writers or the audience either. It wasn't anything but a cheap unfunny gag with no consequences whatsoever.

The two scenes are in no way comparable to each other.

If you want a real comparison, it's this scene from the Niji anime that was also featured in the previews.
Here, even though it was also a cheap gag with little consequence, there were real feelings involved and everybody there treated it as an actual "gay thing" that happened.
In this case, the writers were laughing with us (yurifags). It was like, "haha look at these cute gay girls, very gay chin lift".
Compare that to the one in Superstar where it was just a mean-spirited shot aimed at us. "haha these fools thinking these girls are actually doing the gay thing but they're actually not gottem!!1!"

>It was still a powerful moment that advanced Kanon and Keke's relationship
If only it actually advanced their relationship because literally nothing has changed between them in the next episodes.
>>
>>3529009
Wow. If that was "terrible pacing and horrible handling of story threads" then Superstar would be absolutely unwatchable by your standards.

An actual anime handling a story worse than a mobage would be hard to believe but here we are.
>>
I did some research and apparently, the anime writer is Jukki Hanada. The manga is written by Sakurako and magazine pre-anime materials written by Inui Kakko, both are way better in terms of writing than the anime.

There is also the drama CD that is apparently the best representation of SS by far. It seems Kanon and Keke are already girlfriends.
Sumire and Keke is a dumb comedy duo.
Ren is the mom of the group.

>>3422404

I think the anime would have been way better if they did it like the drama CD, starting the group fully form so we can avoid pointless drama like the future Ren's arc and focus on character interactions, them having fun and bonding.

Too bad, almost nobody knows about the drama CD or reads the magazines and the new manga. So the anime is the only impression that almost everyone has about Superstar.

>>3529012
>a crackship
Not that anon, but I agree that SumiKeke is a crackship,I dislike ep 4 and 5 so much about and what they did to KuKa. Also, it's funny that SumiKeke has a major anti-fandom. I remember, there were threads on 2ch and 5ch that were bashing SumiKeke and wanted KuKa to be back. Another proof is the crackship is almost never posted on /u/

>>3529009
Honestly, I like S1 way more than S2. Shioriko is a good anti-villain and I enjoyed ShioPomu.
>>
>>3529022
>Where is the gay then?

*waves at everything Keke and Kanon related* Keke and Chisato ogling at Kanon in her cute clothes (and Chisato taking pics). Chisato's affection for Kanon, and the ship teasing between Sumire and Keke. Your argument right now is:

>"I want gay."
>something gay happens in Super Star
>"No, not like that."

If you're mad that the shipping isn't limited to the same couples, that's fine, but admit to the biad instead of trying convince yourself that LLSS isn't yuri. And ship teasin between various couples has always been a thing for the franchise, and that includes Niji.

>It was never treated as gay by the characters. Not even a blush.

Keke had a visibly clear sensual reaction to Sumire blowing in her ear. It was gay, but not as gay as the preview alluded to.

>It was treated as gay by the everybody involved. It had lasting consequences that was explored in the following episodes.

It was very gay, but the strong sexual vibes from the cliffhanger was quickly defused by pomu just walking away like someone pressed the rewind button. There was consequences from the scene, but not exactly the same that was suggested. pumu's romantic jealousy was watered down to being afraid of taking a different path from Yu's.

>>3529059
Good point , pre-anime SumiKeke was a bit popular but KanoChi overshadow it for some reason even though KanoChi does not have a strong foundation. I guess, some people really like childhood friends no matter what.

>>3526756
I got a bit lazy, but here's chapter 3. The pacing has gotten faster now. Way less descriptions of the Mise-en-scène. I liked the details in chapters 1 and 2, but I guess they're writing based on the poll results now.

>Chapter 3
The young kunoichi and the spirit's guidance

Arriving at the destination dictated by Ayumu's necklace, Setsuna found herself engulfed in a sea of trees. Within this dense forestry, Setsuna could make out two figures in the overgrowth. One figure, a mature looking woman was sat on top a branch of a massive cedar; While her companion, a girl about Setsuna's age, was situated at the base of the ginormous monolith. The two seemed to be in the middle of a riveting conversation.

>Setsuna: Excuse me...

>Young Girl: Who's there!?

At the sound of Setsuna's voice, the young girl immediately leaped up to the older woman's side and took a defensive stance. Gripped within her hands were two small unfamiliar looking blades pointed directly towards the rude interloper.

>Setsuna: Ah, no I'm not anyone suspicious! I was only led here by this necklace-

>Mature Lady: ...What became of the princess miko?

Despite the tense confrontation, the older woman spoke with a leisurely tone that carried an air of serenity

>Mature Lady: That necklace... was a present that I have given to the previous princess miko... It was to keep the miasma at bay...

>Setsuna: Eh? I don't understand what you mean. Umm, it's only a rumor, but it was said that bestower of this necklace was none other than the great wind spirit herself.

>Young Girl: Mouu! Are you dumb or something? The person that you're speaking to IS the great wind spirit! Here in the flesh!

Not feeling any hostility from Setsuna, the young girl lowered her weapons and puffed out her chest in pride when introducing her companion.

>Setsuna: EEEEHHHH!?!?!

Spirits are supposed to be beings of pure anima that possess insurmountable levels of power. Existing on a plane far above any mortal man, they don't even have the concept of a lifespan.
>>
>>3529088
>Young Girl: Fufun, just so you know, our clan has formed a covenant with the great wind spirit since time immemorial!

>Setsuna: Wow! That's amazing!

>Braggadocios Young Girl: That's right! I belong to a clan of shinobis that reside in the Eastern Raptor Kingdom's Hidden Nakasu Village. And today, I'm here to pay respects to the wind spirit as the new Hokage of my clan!

>Setsuna: Ehh! You're the Hokage?! Hee... If I recall correctly, shinobis are...

>Talkative Young Girl: Yup! We're an elite group that specializes in covert operations! We can even use secret techniques and hidden tools in battle like those kunai that I was holding before.

>Setsuna: Ah, you're basically a ninja, right?

At the behest of Setsuna's deduction, the previously wordy girl grew pale in distress.

>Regretful Young Girl: AAaahhhh, Kasumin has said too much again...!

It seems like contrary to the traits that a shinobi should possess, this young girl who calls herself the Hokage has the tendency to be careless.

>Setsuna: I can take it that your name is Kasumin-san?

>Kasumin: It's not Kasumin, it's Kasumi! The 'N' is title reserved for the Hokages only.

>Setsuna: I see, then shall I call you Kasumin-san too?

>Kasumi: Geh! Kasumin has once again leaked out confidential information! Uggh... Who the heck are you anyways?!

>Setsuna: Aah! That's right, my apologies for going off topic, my name is-

Setsuna revealed to the two individuals her identity and exposited on everything else that has occurred.

>Wind Spirit: Hmm a dragon huh... I see, so the necklace has lost its resistance to the miasma and has sought me out once more...

>Setsuna: Oh great wind spirit, surely from the longevity you have spent on this earth you must know of a way to defeat the accursed dragon and rescue the princess miko?
>>
>>3529090
>Wind Spirit: Hmmm... as far as I know, there is but one method to fell a dragon. Once you pass the trials of the three great spirits, the path will become clear...

Fire, Wind, and Water, the three elements that govern the world. It is said that overcoming their respective trials will grant great boons to the challenger.

>Setsuna: Then allow me to take on that trial now!

Without hesitation, Setsuna stepped forward to the gauntlet

>Kasumi: Hey-, That's not fair! I was going to be the hero who saves the world!

>Setsuna: Ehh?

>Kasumi: Saving the world is the perfect first mission fit for a Hokage such as myself. Don't you know the saying of "Behind every shadow in history, there's a Nakasu"? That's precisely why I shall be accompanying you!

>Setsuna: How can you just decide on something like that so frivolously

>Kasumi: Even if I spent more time considering it, the result would be the same. Setsuna-tono, we'll make it work somehow!

The overly optimistic kunoichi has made up her mind. No matter how many times Setsuna tried to warn her of the dangers ahead, the young shinobi would not go back on her words. In the end, Setsuna was beaten down by her persistence and relented.

>Wind Spirit: Now then as the spirit of the wind, I shall administer your first trial. And... I'm pleased to say that you have both passed with flying colors~

EEH?

Both Setsuna and Kasumi stared in bewilderment.

>Wind Spirit: You're both able to see me, no? Only those pure of heart can perceive the presence of a spirit, and thus you have passed my trial. Now then, allow me to guide you to the fire spirit's domain.

Legends say that the spirit of the wind has the ability to grant flight to humans, and yet for several grueling days Setsuna and Kasumi trudged on to their destination with their bare legs.

>Wind Spirit: Us spirits can only act as your passive observers. We are allowed to lend you a bit of aid, but direct intervention is a big no no. Even a fraction of our power is able to break the rules of nature after all.

Absolutely haggard after their long journey, Kasumi clung onto Setsuna's arm like a ragdoll as she struggled to move her exhausted body.

>Kasumi: W-We're finally here!

After crossing countless ravines and scaling steep treacherous valleys, the two travelers have at long last arrived at the fire spirit's dominion, the Heat Hazed Cave.

>Fire Spirit: Ya-hoo, long time no see, Windy.

Deep within the lava spewing depths of the grotto a single pillar of scorching igneous stood like a blazing skyscraper amidst a sea of flames. And sitting cross legged on top of that towering obelisk, whose height would hurt one's neck just to peer at its peak, was the spirit of fire.

>Fire Spirit: I got the deets of the story. A dragon huh... Welp, let's hurry up and get started with my trial then.

The fire spirit donned a sinister war like smirk as she eyed her prey.

>Fire Spirit: Two-on-one is fine by me. If ya want to pass, you'll have to make me admit defeat.

Despite giving the two heroes an advantage in numbers, the match was still heavily in the fire spirit's favor. From her point of view, fighting these two mortals was mere child's play. Before Setsuna and Kasumi could even make an inch towards the massive rock, a single movement from either of them was met with a leisurely thrown burning ball of hell. It was clear that even with the two of them, they wouldn't be able to close the distance.

>Setsuna: Looks like we won't get anywhere without creating an opening somehow.
>>
>>3529095
>Kasumi: Hehe, then it's a job for none other than the great Kasumin! O-i!

Dashing forward, Kasumi attempted to draw the fire spirit's attention

>Kasumi: Here I go! Ougi! [Puppet String Jutsu]!

*Pachin~*

Posing with one eye closed, Kasumi activated her skill and-

... ... ...

>Setsuna: K-Kasumin-san? What was that just now?

>Kasumi: Uugh- Kasumin was planning to mesmerize the enemy with her cuteness and leave them completely entranced, but...

>Setsuna: I-It was really cute! Really, it was!!

>Kasumi: Muu-, Looks like I'll have to get serious then! Ougi! [Papillion's Dream]!

Scrounging out her ground up sleeping powder, Kasumi aimed it at the fire spirit, but just as she let go, a sudden gust of wind caused the explosion of soporific grains to backfire and rain down onto Setsuna's face...

>Kasumi: Waan! Please wake up, Setsuna-tono!

>Setsuna: ...Ha!

>Kasumi: Thank goodness!! Alright no more playing around, time for Kasumin to get even more serious! Ougi! [Muteki-Kyu Doppelganger]!

>Setsuna: !? Wuh there's so many Kasumin-sans...! Am I still dreaming...?

>Kasumi: Don't get confused by your own ally's technique, Setsuna-tono!

It would seem that at this point they were never going to be able to defeat the fire spirit- or so they thought.

Fire Spirit: Fufu... Ahahahaha! What the heck are yous two doing!

Watching the two fools' idiotic exchange, the fire spirit could not stop herself from laughing. From this, the fiery onslaught came to halt and in that instant-

>Kasumi: You're wide open! Ougi! [Shadow Rush]!

Dashing in like a swift gale, Kasumi appeared behind the spirit of fire.

>Fire Spirit: O-Oh shit!

>Kasumi: Prepare yourself! Ougi! [5.67 Billion Hands]!

Placing her hands onto the sides of her victim's waist, the skillful shinobi started to relentlessly tickle the spirit with her dexterous fingers.

>Fire Spirit: Pfft, Ahahahaha, stop, stop, I give, I give!

>Kasumi: Phew, I did it! ...Huh- Kyaaa-!?
>>

The fire spirit who was laughing up a guffaw landed upon her back, causing the victorious shinobi to suddenly lose her footing upon the narrow pillar.

>Setsuna: Kasumin-san!

Leaping up into the air, Setsuna grabbed onto the cascading body just in the nick of time. As she held Kasumi's petite body in her arms, Setsuna leaned in close to her face to the point where she could feel the young girl's tiny breaths on her cheek.

>Setsuna: Are you alright!?

>Kasumi: K-Kasumin's more than capable of looking out for herself!

>Setsuna: Ahh, I'm so sorry! I've done something unnecessary once again, haven't I...

>Kasumi: Uu..., no, I'll let it slide since you did save me this time...

Unable to stand the distance, Kasumi looked away in embarrassment.

>Fire Spirit: Yaa- You guys really got me. An' so you both pass! As a prize I'll give you here this.

And with that, the fire spirit abruptly took something out from her behind and tossed it into Setsuna's hands.

>Fire Spirit: With that you'll be able to cleave through that ol' dragon's tough scales lickidity split.

>Setsuna: C-Could this be the Illusory Crimson Lotus Sword!?

It was the very sword from the picture book that Setsuna had admired. And now she was staring at it in her own two hands.

>Kasumi: But how can it be a sword if there's no blade? Could it be broken, Setsuna-tono?

>Setsuna: No, the blade materializes once you infuse the sword with your spiritual power. Let's give it a test run shall we. [TRACE ON]!
>>
>>3529100
As if responding to Setsuna's cry, a sabre of crimson light poured out from the sword's hilt. Steeling herself, Setsuna unleashed a scarlet slash upon a nearby boulder and within an instant, the once massive rock was cleanly bifurcated with surgical precision.

(See, isn't that just the coolest!) (Wow, it's really sharp!)

At the display of the blade's fearsome lethality Setsuna bounced around in excitement while Kasumi gawked on in fascination.

>Fire Spirit: Words are the bridge to the heart ya see, if you give yer attacks a name of their own, the sword'll respond better to yer feelings. Now then, that'll be ma last piece of advice to yous before we part ways. Just so you know though, the water spirit is far stronger than me~

>Wind Spirit: I shall be remaining here as well. Here, allow me to refresh your amulet to usher you in the correct direction...

And with that farewell, Setsuna and Kasumi both thanked the spirits before setting off to their next destination.

>Kasumi: Haaa~... Kasumin used way too much DP for the trial this time.

>Setsuna: Eeh, are you alright? But we have no means of recovering DP at the moment...

>Kasumi: Well, I'll make it work somehow so no worries!

The two elemental spirits watched on from the mouth of the cavern as the silhouettes of the traveling pair disappeared into the distance.

>Wind Spirit: Those two youths... When they finally reach the [TRUTH]... They might come to detest us...

>Fire Spirit: Well it can't be helped, cuz all we can do is just watch over the twos after all.

The spirits smiled melancholically while the two adventurers pressed on, unaware of their fate.

And that's it for this month. Personally I think Shioriko as her rival or Karin as her Mentor makes the most sense plot wise.

>>3529036
>*waves at everything Keke and Kanon related*
Ah yes the stuff in episode 1 and half of episode 3 but not in the other episodes because the writers have no sense of continuity and pacing.

>Keke and Chisato ogling at Kanon in her cute clothes (and Chisato taking pics)
Ah yes another lame gag that had no consequences whatsoever.

>Chisato's affection for Kanon,
Ah yes her affection that was clearly shown by her doing absolutely nothing of note in the majority of her screentime.

>Keke had a visibly clear sensual reaction to Sumire blowing in her ear.
No, she didn't.

>It was gay
No, it wasn't.
Sumire didn't mean it to be gay.
Keke didn't act like it was gay.
The writers didn't write it to be gay, but purposefully put it in the previews as if the audience could be fooled by it.
Again, compare it to the Karin/Himeno agokui scene. The Superstar writers in comparison clearly had ill intentions compared to the Niji writers.

>>"I want gay."
>>something gay happens in Super Star
>>"No, not like that."

No, it's more like

>"I want gay."
>nothing gay happens in Super Star
>"Please I want gay."
>"alright :^)"
>gets hopes up, but not really because I'm not as dumb as the writers thought I was
>nothing gay happens in Super Star

>If you're mad that the shipping isn't limited to the same couples
No, not really.

>And ship teasin between various couples has always been a thing for the franchise, and that includes Niji.
The difference is Niji and Sunshine had real feelings involved instead of just "ship teasing".

And I fucking wish Superstar had even ship teasing. All of the "examples" you mentioned besides Kuuka were barely even that.
>>
>>3529036
>It was very gay, but the strong sexual vibes from the cliffhanger was quickly defused by pomu just walking away like someone pressed the rewind button.
Maybe, just maybe, she realized that she was doing something wrong, and like a normal person she backed out before things get messy. It's something called de-escalation.

>There was consequences from the scene, but not exactly the same that was suggested. pumu's romantic jealousy was watered down to being afraid of taking a different path from Yu's.
It was actually her fear of change which causes the romantic jealousy. It was her theme that was consistent from the first episode to the last.

For the sake of the argument, let's assume that the Niji writers really did use the "rewind button" (they didn't).
In comparison, the Superstar writers (not the characters) did a clean memory wipe after episode 3 because they don't want to commit to KuuKa.
And for the "kiss" thing, there never was anything for them to "rewind".

>>can't refute anything I said
>>"LLSS is still worse, though."
I don't want to refute anything you said. I never claimed that it was good, but it's really just bog standard mobage plot (if anything S2 made things a bit more interesting). I never expected much from it.
However, I never acted like it was literally the worst thing ever, because it wasn't to me.

The Superstar anime though, is actually boring, horribly paced and written, even compared to a fucking mobage. And the worst part: maybe it's actually openly hostile to yuri.
>>
>>3529126
>maybe it's actually openly hostile to yuri.
Not that anon but I don't think that's true. From my point of view is not malice but a combination of incompetence and wanting to have another NicoMaki-like ship.
>>
>>3529149
I fucking hope so.
My goodwill for this franchise was only won back by the Niji anime, but the Superstar anime is wasting a good chunk of it every episode.
>>
>>3529149
>>3529155
Another explication could be Hanada or someone else has a bias against KuKa or they don't want to lose the little SumiKeke fandom from the pre-anime materials.
But yeah, I think the wanting another NicoMaki-like ship might be the real explanation.

NicoMaki is in the same category as EliUmi and YoshiRiko.
Style over substance ships that go nowhere.
They're easy for the writers to "establish" without much effort from their end.

Hmm, both of you are correct about Ayumu not wanting to take a different path from Yu and not wanting change, but the root cause of it was Ayumu being afraid that Yuu and her would no longer be special to each other and wouldn't be the centre of each others lives, that's what caused the burning jealously when she saw Yuu with Setsuna and why she asked if Setsuna was more important than her.
It's why the flower's "Unchanging Feelings" meaning was important in helping Ayumu move foward, and why in Ayumu's photo essay there is heavy emphasis on Yu being the irreplaceable centre of Ayumu's life, whom Ayumu feels lonely without even if she's enjoying her time with other people (With Ayumu also still getting jealous when Yuu is with another girl).
As well as why there was focus on how Yu basically puts Ayumu on a pedastal and will abandon everything, including her own family, in order to come running to be by her side should Ayumu give the word.
I honestly love these sort of relationships, they may not exactly be the healthiest, but they are addictive to watch and read about.
Inject more YuuPomu into my veins please.
>>3529052
>I hope people don't forget that yuupomu are childhood girlfriends.
One of the funniest things that has come out of Superstars airing is how it has elevated YuuPomu, I've many people on JP Twitter begin to realise just how abnormal Yu&Ayumu's relationship is in comparison to what they're currently watching.

Super Star is also far from over yet and will likely have a longer life ahead of it, with all the girls currently being first years. So, it's ridiculous to say any ship is "dead" at this point.

>I've many people on JP Twitter begin to realise just how abnormal Yu&Ayumu's relationship is in comparison to what they're currently watching.
That and the fact that ChiiKanon (that's their ship's name right?) and YouChika are abnormal too in a sense that they barely feel close at all, as if being "childhood friends" is just an informed attribute.
Love Live has always failed in portraying the childhood friends dynamic, until YuuPomu that is, which goes to the opposite extreme like you said.

>I personally think it's more a case of them throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks.
>Whichever of the Superstar pairings comes out on top in terms of popularity will be what they stick with in the future I bet.
I feel that this is the case too, and I hate it. This is not how you write a show. This is how you make a soulless capitalist product.
>>
>>3529209
Eliumi has a bit of foundations, but people just exaggerate them just because they are similar characters.
The "establish" thing is a general fan work problem, it is easier to invent things than to use established characterization to write something.

>ignoring that most fans don't give a shit for other material even if it's canon
frankly the catheterization of NicoMaki in the manga is more interesting than what fans insist on continuing to use.

>That and the fact that ChiiKanon (that's their ship's name right?) and YouChika are abnormal too in a sense that they barely feel close at all

I believe it's ChiiKano, without the final 'n', so as to stick with the 4 mora format that ship names tend to have. Not that it's terribly important or anything.

Chisato and Kanon feel kinda close, though in a weird way. Certainly not in the same way as Ayumu and Yuu, but that's fine. An exact repetition of that might be boring, anyway.

Whenever they're in a group, Chisato directs pretty much everything she says at Kanon specifically. She hardly even talks to Keke or Sumire unless she's spoken to first. I mean, sure, it hasn't been that many episodes yet and Sumire in particular hasn't been around for that long, but the way Chisato acts when they're hanging around in a group kinda stands out. She seems kinda fixated on Kanon. Though, yes, not quite in the same way that Ayumu is fixated on Yuu.

As far as Kanon goes, what she feels about Chisato is somehow even more more vague. Kanon herself certainly seems kinda stumped on that, though maybe that's just as far as their idol group is concerned. The best we have so far is that Kanon wants Chisato to stick with dancing because of whatever that childhood promise(?) meant to both of them. We'll probably get more of that in the next one or two episodes. Hopefully they don't mess it up the way they did with the resolution to You's drama.

There's also a cute manga chapter with the two of them, even though if it's ultimately not super insightful or anything.

I disagree for both of those.

I think Chiisato does feel like Kanon's childhood friend because of how much time she's willing to spend to help her without anything in it for her. But it's entirely platonic, so not exactly good for /u/s.

You's feelings for Chika are very strong, making S1 of Sunshine feel almost like a love triangle, with Riko winning Chika in the end and You accepting her loss. It's an earlier version of Pomu, except with the childhood friend losing.
>>
Speaking of Chisato acting weird
>>
>>3529441
I noticed that she raises her shoulders a bit when Keke steps closer to Kanon to rant about Sumire. Like the situation is making her anxious or nervous or something. Though she certainly doesn't let it show on her face. Might be noteworthy, considering how little she ever says or comments on things.
>>
>>3529427
>Chisato and Kanon feel kinda close, though in a weird way. Certainly not in the same way as Ayumu and Yuu, but that's fine. An exact repetition of that might be boring, anyway.
She's more of a repetition of You in my opinion, and not in a good way.

I really hope that your observations about the subtle stuff will amount to something.
Though I can't trust the writers for this season to make anything subtle to be honest, seeing how loud and annoying the last two episodes were.
And remember how Kanon asked Keke to drop her honorifics after episode 3 that should've marked a change in their relationship? I don't think the writers remembered.

>Hopefully they don't mess it up the way they did with the resolution to You's drama.
Oh god I think I repressed my memory about that episode and it's all coming back.

>I think Chiisato does feel like Kanon's childhood friend because of how much time she's willing to spend to help her without anything in it for her
That's what normal friends do though? It wasn't anything special in my opinion.

>You's feelings for Chika are very strong, making S1 of Sunshine feel almost like a love triangle,
That was only in her episode. She never acted like that before or acted like that again after that episode.
Honestly, characters having little sense of continuity feels like a recurring theme for the mainline anime series.

>with Riko winning Chika in the end and You accepting her loss
Wasn't it just Riko saying "let's all be super friends" with You never dealing with her problems directly with Chika? God I fucking hate that episode.
>>
>>3529453
>That was only in her episode. She never acted like that before or acted like that again after that episode.
There were indications of her being jealous of ChikaRiko before her big episode. Aside from that, it's pretty normal of her to not be very showy with her feelings, since they've known each other for so long. You's attempts to become closer with Chika through a mutual hobby had largely failed, but they had a pretty comfy thing going on before that Tokyo slut ruined everything.

Not saying it's particularly special. It's friendship, but not the crazy kind like we see with Ayumu (and somewhat with You).

>Wasn't it just Riko saying "let's all be super friends" with You never dealing with her problems directly with Chika? God I fucking hate that episode.
I was referring more to the confession scene.

Maybe it's because she is keeping her distance as only a helper or maybe it's in her natural. Chisato doesn't talk or speak up her opinion much, she just always calmly and carefully observing everyone and only speak the right thing and take the right action when it's necessary.
For example, pic related has her crossing her arms watching the situation but the moment Keke started screaming she immediately got herself ready to intervene. Some other examples are when she left Kanon and Keke to talk alone before their live, when she protected them from Ren's harassment, or when she led Kanon into chasing after Sumire.
The only time Chisato ever talked about herself was when Keke asked her if she's interested in school idol, every other time she speaks up it's always about Kanon or the group. Even though she has been getting decent screen time ever since episode 1, neither the characters nor the audience knows what she is thinking. Chiichan a mystery.

Another very brief and subtle change in episode 3. This is when they first found out where the venue for KuuKaa stage is, which we learned in episode 5 is also the place where Chisato and Kanon made their weird promise. In the very last frame before it cut to the next scene, Chisato switched from looking at the stage to looking at Kanon from the corner of her eye.

I'll admit I wasn't a fan of her based on herd design, but her character is definitely intriguing.

>>
>>3529622
Cute!

>>3529905
If only they focused on that instead of le wacky (but actually boring) hijinks.
Those subtle scenes are just a minuscule part of the show. Most of the rest are frankly garbage that can easily be edited out.
What were they actually thinking when they decided to make a filler beach episode while everybody besides Kanon is woefully underdeveloped?
Like, they're don't have the excuse of having too many characters anymore.

And whether or not those subtle scenes will actually amount to anything is still a very big if.

>>3529910
In my opinion, Ayumu belongs to a different class of characters from those two.
You and Chisato are the "low-key quirky" character archetype. They have wacky quirks like being obsessed with sailing + uniforms and rapping + the owl respectively, which don't actually add anything to their characters but for some reason the writers decided to focus on those instead of developing them properly.
Ayumu doesn't have and shouldn't have quirks like that because she's the "girl next door" character. She's the easily embarrassed normal girl who has a darker side.

They're physically separating Chisato and Kanon in order to further set up their conflict/drama. It's not that complicated.
Also, less than half of the episode takes place on the island, much less on a beach. You're making a bigger deal out of it than it actually is.
>>
>>3529959
>They're physically separating Chisato and Kanon in order to further set up their conflict/drama.
Fine idea but terrible execution. They could've done anything else, like, I dunno, yuri and character development instead of whatever we got.

And I'm not just talking about episode 5. The majority of episodes 2, half of 3, and 4 were also just boring training segments and dumb gags.
The most frustrating thing is that I know that they can do better.
Just look at episode 1. Episode 1 was perfectly paced. Compared to the other episodes it felt as if it belongs in another, better show.

I mean it's Love Live. This franchise is more about the pairings than the story. OG Love Live had one of the most boring stories ever. Rewatching it made me realize nostalgia is why I believed it was any good.

OG wasn't about the pairings either though.
Sunshine was the first time that pairings became somewhat of a focus.

In my opinion, Sunshine and Nijigasaki (especially Nijigasaki) handled both story and pairings/character development better than OG and Superstar.

Credit where credit's due, Superstar is better than OG in the pairings department because of stuff like the last episode.
It was still kinda awkward, especially the dialogue (these writers really need to learn about "show, don't tell"), but it was leagues above the trash fire that was episode 5.
>>
Also, I still can't get over how they just forgot about KuuKa.

Keke was the one who first talked to Kanon about Chisato at the end of episode 5, but in episode 6 it was what's-her-name instead.
I don't think that Keke and Kanon even interacted this episode.

It's probably a coincidence, but it would honestly be hilarious if Ren was Chisato's childhood bully. It would explain why Ren was so soft towards Chisato but cold to everyone else. She feels guilty about how she treated her when they were little. It would also be hot if Chisato bullied Ren back sexually
