Happy Birthday Kotori

Something that's been in the back of mind this past week.

At first the insert song of the last episode sounds like it's going to be a sweet reprise of the episode's theme.
And then it suddenly became, to put it in the nicest way, weird.
Why do group songs more often than not sound weird and not really fit with the episode that it's featured in?

Been quite behind, and watched Sunshine s1. Seemed better than the previous Love Live one. Also made me want to do write fanfic of You (not to be confused with (you)) and Chika, but luckily that feeling went away 2 days later. A very dangerous feeling, that I tend to not have.

Okay, first the positives:
- They kinda remembered that KuuKa once existed
- There's a bit of actual plot around the end

But most of the episode was still either boring or unfunny as usual.
Chisato is back to being bland and nonexistent.
Sumire is still Yoshiko 2.0. (At least Keke interacted with her less this episode. Those interactions were painful to watch in the previous two eps.)

And most importantly, there's still barely any yuri here after 7 fucking episodes.

Why are they doing this?
Why are there so few heart to heart moments in this season?
Everything feels so bland and painfully platonic. Why?
It's got to be deliberate at this point.

Are they seriously going to use the same save the school plot for the third time?
>>
>>3535400
Who knows. It can be just a personal problem with all the drama being about Ren losing the school but this is Love Live so it can be "saving the school" again.
>>
>>3535400
They might be. Though at this point the whole thing might still turn out to be a red herring of some kind.
One of the girls from Sunny Passion even kinda lampshaded the whole situation when she was surprised that the others aren't doing the whole school idol thing for the sake of their school. It would be too weird if they suddenly went all in on that now.
So far the only one who's trying to save the school is Ren. Or perhaps it's just the music course, considering what she's planning with the school festival and all that. Perhaps she thinks that if she doesn't save the music course in particular, she doesn't save the school at all, because it wouldn't be in the image that her mother had in mind for the school. Or maybe she just wants to use the music course as a way to set the school apart from other schools and increase attendance that way.
Either way, considering her facial expression during the announcement, it doesn't look like she wants to do what she's doing. I guess she feels like there's no other option left for whatever reason.

Then again, that has always been kinda weird. Imagine your past self going to such great lengths to... save the school you went to. Who the hell does that. But I guess that's just anime logic, better not to think too hard about that.

Actually I think that scene is a (very unsubtle) way for the writers to hint to the audience that the group actually needs a reason to do the school idol thing.
And it seems like they're actually going to give them that reason in the most unoriginal way possible.
If they namedrop muse in the next episodes my soul will fucking leave my body.

It's more like that the music course is her mother's main addition to the school's reopening (i.e her legacy), and if Ren had her way she'll throw the general course under the bus to preserve at least that bit.

>the rehashed plotline and sumire abuse
I honestly didn't think SS could disappoint me this much, but it pulled it off.
>>
>>3536257
I've long curbed my expectations ever since it's clear that the people in charge of this season do not care about yuri, or even the most basic character development.

I don't know what they were thinking when they hired the muse seasons' director back.
I don't like using the word, but "hack" seems very appropriate in this case.

Everything he does it's futa, he even put it in his bio, just because you can't see the dick it doesn't mean it isn't there.

It does mean that, because that's how pictures work. Pictures are not some magical portal to another world, if something is not drawn in an image then it's not "hidden", it's simply not there at all.

Coming from the NHK reairing of the Niji anime's first episode today, it still amazes me how good it was compared to the other seasons. Especially compared to the mess that is Superstar right now.
The dialogue, the pacing, the soundtrack, the songs, the yuri, the overall atmosphere, all of them were just really on point, even from the first episode.

Also, I noticed how the Niji anime didn't really try to be "funny".
On the other hand, the other seasons tried way too hard and ended up failing miserably. I think that OG and Superstar had the worst cases of this.
>>
>>3538406
Yeah, but that made some of the middle episodes sag a bit, it's the least funny LL season yet. Still, I'd take chemistry between girls over comedy, so you're not wrong.
>>
>>3538406
I wouldn't say the nijis didn't have jokes in it. Even ep 12, which was pretty serious as an episode overall, had a bunch of light-hearted moments.

>it's the least funny LL season yet
Is it though?
While it's true that Niji didn't try to be explicitly funny, I still think that it was funny in a more subtle, background humor kind of way.

I'd say that Superstar is the least funny actually.
The "jokes" are usually just characters being loud and obnoxious, or characters being put in situations that make them react in loud and obnoxious ways.
Yeah, I know that this is the Love Live brand of humor (which I have never liked tbqh), but I think that it's especially bad this season.

>>3538422
I'm not saying that it didn't. You're absolutely right. Honestly, I think that the jokes in Niji are just subtler and maybe "smarter" I guess.

Even in supposedly serious moments like the infamous Setsuna trip scene, it still managed to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen in anime because of how deliberately cliched it was and the shoujo sparkle sound effect that they added. And then of course Ayumu's reaction afterwards.
I don't think that any other season of Love Live can manage to be funny in that kind of way.

Yuri-wise I think Sunshine season 1's ChikaRiko was peak. Their moments were written like something out of a romance. If I didn't know any better I would have thought the show was yuri. Setting was also comfy but I wasn't a fan of the constant mention of muse or the majority of the cast's one line quirk.
I was pleased with how gay Niji was too, hope they'll make a season 2.
>>
>>3538557
Niji season 2 was confirmed already, actually! But... will it be (very) gay?! That's still unknown.
>>
>>3538557
That's just your goggles. I didn't feel anything special there. If anything You was more gay than those two combined, as far as I was concerned.

It's really just a matter of what you like to see in things (aka goggles). It takes a lot for most people to recognize there's something going on.
>>
>>3538565
Chika and Riko had a lot of heartfelt 1 on 1 moments in the show. The first time they met felt like a love story setup, their private talks on the beach and their room windows, the bicycle escapade, even Riko's reactions to Chika were different compared to everyone else's were noticeable. You was gay for sure since she was the designated Yaya. Back then there were a lot of complaints about the show being basically chikariko and friends, so no it wasn't just me.
>>
>>3538557
I really liked ChikaRiko too. It's the first time that the franchise tried to write character/relationship development into the story instead of just slapping a lazy pandering ship with no development whatsoever and call it a day.

>>3538570
>Chika and Riko had a lot of heartfelt 1 on 1 moments in the show.
Yes, this. This is the good shit.
I still feel that it was a huge waste that they abandoned most of those moments and returned to the lazy pandering formula in S2.

Luckily, the Niji anime made those kind of moments the main focus of the show.
I view Niji as taking the good (gay) parts of Sunshine and expanding on them, while removing the bad parts like the boring idol plot and unfunny "comedy".

Sadly, in Superstar they instead decided to do the exact opposite.

>>3538565
>If anything You was more gay than those two combined,
No, and that was only in her episode. Nothing before or after that.

You is such a wasted and boring character to be honest. She's one of biggest criticisms of Sunshine.

I always hated that ChikaRiko was wasted in season two just because the fandom preferred You just because they were childhood friends. At this point it is evident that the staff is aware of what happens in pixiv, 2chan, 5chan, etc. And Sunshine season 2 its a proof of that. (RIP ChikaRiko and Rubymaru)
>>3538585
The problem with SuperStar is that relationships do not develop and even force them to change, only Kanon and Keke (at the beginning) have been active characters and the rest are soft and have no screen time. (The perfect example of all this was episode 5, what the hell was that episode?)

just look at Mezashi too who hasn't stopped drawing yohamaru
>>
>>3538630
Superstar relationships will also be a problem. Kanokeke is clearly the most popular ( even has seiyuu pandering), followed by KanoChisa. I highly doubt they want to keep both of them alive at the same time. And it looks like SumiKeke isn't as popular as they hoped, and considering what happened on Sunshine's S2, it looks like season two will be a shipp mess again.
>>
>>3538630
>The problem with SuperStar is that relationships do not develop and even force them to change, only Kanon and Keke (at the beginning) have been active characters and the rest are soft and have no screen time.
It's especially egregious when you consider that there are only 5 girls this time. They can't use the "oh no 9 girls too many not enough screentime" excuse anymore.
It's even more embarrassing when you consider that Nijigasaki did a much better job with character/relationship development even though it had 10 girls instead.

I'm blaming most of this on the muse director what's-his-name returning. The main writer (Hanada) also did Sunshine so I don't think he's the one to blame.

>The perfect example of all this was episode 5, what the hell was that episode?
Filler.

>>3538642
We're lucky if they develop even one ship.
It's very clear that they're reusing the muse formula: don't develop the characters or ships, throw a scene or two of pandering to bait the audience.
I'm not biting though. If they don't care enough about the characters and ships to develop them properly, then why the hell should I care?
>>
>>3538650
I think the director is taking his time because he know that SuperStar is going to have 3 seasons, 1 season per year, so we are going to see the girls graduating in the end. It might have been different if there was just 1 season that was confirmed. So the director will have to work with the mindset that SS need to be conclude in 12-13 ep. And make sure every girl has many interactions as possible. Honestly, It would have been better if all 5 knew about each other from the very start and that would have avoid many useless drama.
>>
>>3538650
>I'm blaming most of this on the muse director what's-his-name returning
Worst decision ever. I can't understand it after seeing how the franchise evolved after so many years. Even at the time Sunshine was a criticism of what OG did wrong / did not do

The worst part its that the first 3 episodes were actually very good, even if episode 2 had a lot of filler. For the first time I noticed the OST in an LL series, and the sets and backgrounds were colorful af.

After those weeks of hiatus between episode 3 and 4, I had a lot of hype but from ep 4 to 7 the quality dropped a lot, even in the animation (ep 7 was "decent", but it doesn't come close to the first three ep )
>>
>>3538630
>The problem with SuperStar is that relationships do not develop and even force them to change
I blame Sumire for that, we could have gotten a well-developed KuuKaa where Keke called her girlfriend Kanon instead of Kanon-chan. Unfortunately they had to forced Sum*Keke and so they had to reset KuuKa to make sure it is not the prevalent ship anymore.
>>3538642
Hopefully they ditched KanoChisa and concentrate on KuuKa, it is the ship with the most potential after all. However, I don't have any hope of them doing that.
>>
>>3538661
Even if he does actually have 3 seasons to waste, why would he even waste one season or even a single episode in the first place?
Is it possible for someone to be that retarded?

>>3538662
>For the first time I noticed the OST in an LL series
Really? I actually thought that the OST's the most lackluster since OG's OST. The only time that the OST was a bit noticeable to me was in episode 6.
Personally, I think that Sunshine's OST was the best, with Niji's OST being a close second.

Wait, I just checked the credits.
It seems that besides the director, Superstar and OG also share the same soundtrack composer. Huh.
>>
>>3538667
>we could have gotten a well-developed KuuKaa where Keke called her girlfriend Kanon instead of Kanon-chan.
Oh yeah. Speaking of that, I noticed that Keke actually did drop Kanon's honorifics in the few moments that they interacted in episode 5 and 7.
I wish that they or someone else made a bigger deal out of it, but eh I'll give the writers credit for remembering at least.
>>
>>3538672
>Is it possible for someone to be that retarded?
Unfortunately yes, he is mostly likely a gardener type director where he has no plan in the direction and has makes it up on the fly, the problem for being that type of director is that it will lead to many plot hole and inconsistency. The opposite which is the architect type of director where the director makes up well-detail plan in the beginning to makes sure everything is there and that writing quality is good. Anigasaki has an architect type director mostly likely because how consistent it's. However, SS director probably don't know how to write outside the formula so he just went with it.
>>
>>3538676
Maybe they are planning to go back to KuuKaa? I remember someone on /a/ pointed out that episode 7 felt is written by someone that clearly dislikes Sum*Keke. Keke being rude toward Sumire and her obsession toward Kanon with the election.
>>
>>3538661
I would understand that if the series developed in another way and showed more concrete advances instead of setbacks, let's take a look:
We are currently in the "introductory phase of the girls"

EP 1-3 was entirely for Kanon and Keke (and maybe a little bit on Chisato). The 2 have good dynamics, the "filler" parts help the dynamics and in a way influence Kanon's problem (Keke being very animated making Kanon even more afraid of ruining the live). And imo Tiny Stars is one of the best songs in the franchise. Very good start

Ep 4 introduces Sumire, who so far does not stop looking like someone very selfish. The relationship between Kanon and Keke does not seem to have advanced much and that is all, the character that took the least time to introduce and that I do not think would have deserved more because it is only comic relief (although with 5 girls having a character only for comic relief does not seem like a good idea). Not very good episode

Ep 5 was about ... ??????
Like 5 minutes talking about Chisato and that's it. The rest of the episode was about SumiKeke, which was forced on considering how the previous episode ended. Even in 2ch / 5ch there were many people upset with this and asking for Kuukaa to come back. And don't forget the disgusting "kiss bait." The worst episode yet.

Ep6 was about Chisato, also not much to say here, typical promise between childhood friends although it was nice to see the relationship between Kanon and Chisato. To be honest, it's easy to understand why KanoChisa is the second most popular post after watching the episode. Even Chisato had a conversation with Ren after she disappeared. The song wasn't as good as Tiny Stars but it was fine

Another problem with EP 5-6 is that the relationship between Kanon and Keke seemed to have receded to a point where they hardly even spoke. And the dialogues with Sumire are 98% with Keke and they are just jokes, she hasn't even had a relevant conversation with the other 3 members of her group after almost half a season.

EP 7 was about the elections, at the moment it seems that she will continue to be re-elected in the next episode so it is not all bad. But again it is filler that little contributed to the character dynamics, yeah it was good that they remembered that Kanon and Keke were close and their dynamics are funny but the rest of the girls did not have any important interaction, Sumire was a walking joke the whole episode and Chisato went soft again and almost disappeared. Near the end, Ren's conflict appears, which seems to be very good even if they reuse the FUCKING SCHOOL CLOSURE PLOT AGAIN.

You can see? There is too much filler in only 7 chapters that Niji and even Sunshine always had a focus even if they were not quite good, the relationships between the girls appear and disappear in each episode and apart from Kanon and a little Keke, none have had enough screen time . All this without even mentioning the yuri that has dropped enormously this season.
>>
>>3538667
>Hopefully they ditched KanoChisa and concentrate on KuuKa
It would be very rare for them to kill a ship on childhood friends but I don't think they want to kill the most popular ship either. Hard choice

>>3538681
I think many of us had that feeling lol. I have nothing against the SumiKeke bros, but if the staff really wanted to send SumiKeke they should have done it before the relationship with Kanon grew so much and in a less forced way than what happened in EP 5
>>
>>3538682
>EP 1-3
Honestly, they should have keep with that pace and continue on with KuuKa, if they developed their dynamic more, it could have been an excellent pair. It's really the best ship that SS has so far.
>Ep 4
I really think Chisato should have been the one to open up to Sumire, I know ChisaSumi seems weird at first but there is potential there, maybe Sumire starts liking dancing, that can be a good start.
>Ep 5
Maybe they saw people reaction in 2ch/ 5ch that's why they back down with the Sum*Keke?
>>3538683
>Ep 6
I agree, I can see why it will be hard to give up on KanoChisa unless Chisato had a ship that is extremely good.
>Kanon and Keke seemed to have receded to a point where they hardly even spoke
Maybe they tried to switch to Sum*Keke while trying to reduce KuuKaa to nothing but that backfire very hard likes you said with 2ch/5ch
>EP 7
It feels likes they know they screwed with the Kuuka to Sum*Keke switch so they tried to backpedal by concentrating on Kanon and Keke dynamic again while disregarding Sumire and Chisato. They probably thinks a lot people hates Sumire, so they have to make her the buttmonkey in that episode.
>FUCKING SCHOOL CLOSURE PLOT AGAIN.
I hate that plot/trope so much, it is the most unoriginal way they could do.
>the relationships between the girls appear and disappear
I think they don't know which ship to push, that explained all the inconsistency. But they seriously should have chosen the designated pairs at the very start and makes it clear.
>the yuri that has dropped enormously this season.
Could it because of the chinese pandering? I remember there was controversy about a yuri scene in Honkai Impact.
>>
>>3538690
Another choice would be to go with an OT3 but that I don't they will go with that.
>they should have done it before the relationship with Kanon grew so much
The only way that I can see Sum*Keke being acceptable if Sumire joined in Episode 1 or 2.
However, we will lose Tiny Stars which would really suck or it would have been a trio instead of a duo.
>>
>>3538682
>>3538683
Wow. You took the words right out of my mouth. I agree 100%.

Yeah the main problems with this season are
>lack of consistency (in character development especially)
>lack of focus
>lack of yuri

It's funny that even though the Niji anime was the one that had girl-of-the-week episodes, it felt way more consistent and connected from episode to episode than Superstar.

Also, a bit of a tangent, but regarding the treatment of Sumire in episode 7: (yeah I know this discussion has been done to death)

As much as I hate her myself, it did feel as if Keke and Chisato were bullying her in the episode.
It's fucking weird for Keke since she was chummy with her in the previous 2 eps, and especially weird for Chisato who literally had bullying be part of her sad backstory.
Yeah, Sumire is fucking annoying but this is not how friends/teammates should act with each other.
If this was the Niji anime they probably would've actually dealt with helping Sumire learn to be a better person, instead of just making her be the unfunny butt monkey forever.

>inb4 kasumi
Kasumi's way less obnoxious than Sumire (imo she's the most likable out of all the "gremlins")
She learned her lesson in her episode.
Her butt monkey status was more just her being unlucky than being deliberately antagonized by the others. She clearly loves and is loved by the others.
>>
>>3538711
Making a single anime episode takes a lot of time. It's literally impossible for them to change course every week depending on people's reactions.
The only logical explanation is that they can't be or don't care to be consistent.
Or they're playing the long con of pandering to everybody and only after gauging fan reactions they decide on next season's course.

But the reality is they're being inconsistent and that's bad writing.
>>
>>3538630
Rubymaru was never a thing.
>>
>>3538720
>It's fucking weird for Keke since she was chummy with her in the previous 2 eps
Not that anon, could it be someone else wrote episode 7 or the writer has amnesia? It really feels the person that wrote the episode really hates Sumire. Honestly, if I was Sumire, I would have quit the club. I wish Kanon asked Chisato and Keke to stop the bullying...maybe the writer don't see it that way.
>>3538723
My guess is that they did not planned enough about the characters and the plot, that's why they are clueless about each character interacts with each other, that's why they are many inconsistency. If they were smart, they would have not done any ship switching.
They probably never took any literature class.
It's funny I read some SS fanfics that are way better then the show, consistent and the characters are likeable.
>>
>>3538723
>It's literally impossible for them to change course every week depending on people's reactions.
Exactly. They already finished doing the episodes a long time ago, it is impossible that they have changed it so quickly. Even in sudden emergency changes like the SIFAS incident, they had many weeks to change the story they already had planned.

>>3538766
There are several people in charge of the script and each one is doing what they want with it, including the submissions

The writing is just bad and they never had a literature class in their life

Or the one that in my opinion is even more viable than the previous one
> Or they're playing the long con of pandering to everybody and only after gauging fan reactions they decide on next season's cours

After the second season of Sunshine, I can't imagine anything else
It makes even more sense if you consider that unlike the other generations, there weren't many scans, CD dramas that talked about relationships between girls. I think the closest we had was the first CD that I think has something from KanoKeke, SumiKeke, KanoChisa and SumiRen (I can't confirm that because I never listened to the drama since I haven't found it with subtitles) and some "seiyuu pandering "

Then that would be the reason why they are testing which ship is more popular. It seems like a terrible choice to me since it not only shows laziness on the part of the writers by making the fandom do the character interactions, but it also generates inconsistencies that we are having right now with SS
>>
>>3538733
It once existed. Especially when the Sunshine project started, the scans, mini stories, cd dramas on even SIF stories were full of RubyMaru. In the anime apart from its introduction episode they did not have as much presence as other ships.When season 1 ended, it was almost completely replaced by Yohamaru in all media because it was more popular, and also stronger at that point.
>>
>>3538776
>There are several people in charge of the script and each one is doing
That explained everything, it should be one competent person that is in charge of the scripts.
>The writing is just bad and they never had a literature class in their life
Yeah, it really feel that they did not take any class, they broke some many writing rules. One major broken rule is The show don't tell. They kept telling instead of showing. Also another one is that the writing lack of subtlety.
>there weren't many scans
And those scans don't help with the character interactions at all. It's just character A saying a long monologue and character B responding with a long monologue. It would have been smarter if they put actual natural dialogues instead.
>CD dramas that talked about relationships between girls.
Would be nice if you can share it even though there is no subtitles, I want to know the differences between the drama CD interactions and the anime.
>seiyuu pandering
I remember that Liyuu is pro-KuuKaa.
>they are testing which ship is more popular
This is literally the worst way to do things.
>It seems like a terrible choice
I agree 100%
>>
>>3538715
Some of the reasons why Tiny Stars is so good is because it is a duo (Their voices really match very well), the lyrics are about the thoughts of Kanon and Keke and even the initials TS are Tang and Shibuya. All of that would be lost without including someone else in the group.
>>
>>3538784
>Their voices really match very well
I agree, both voices blend each other so well.
>The initials TS
That is quite clever.

After reading the lyrics, the song does really fit their relationship, especially those three sentences:
(Because we're not alone)
(The same dream together forever)
(Let's hold our hands together tightly and go, tiny stars)
>>
>>3538782
>There are several people in charge of the script and each one is doing
Oh shit, I forgot to put those 3 points were my assumptions, but watching the episodes it seems that there are at least 2 writers involved

>And those scans don't help with the character interactions at al
Agree,they were funny stories that were even referenced in the anime, but no more than that
>Would be nice if you can share it even though there is no subtitles
Don't save the link, sorry m8
>I remember that Liyuu is pro-KuuKaa.
Yeah and looks like Sayuri too

It's not unusual for episodes to have different scriptwriters (脚本).
It's the job of the series composition/script director/main writer (シリーズ構成) to lay out the ground story and maintain consistency between episodes. Only the main director outranks this role in terms of writing.

However, in Superstar's (and also in OG's and Sunshine's) case, the series composition and the scriptwriter for every episode is the same person: Jukki Hanada (花田十輝).
https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%A9%E3%83%96%E3%83%A9%E3%82%A4%E3%83%96!%E3%82%B9%E3%83%BC%E3%83%91%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B9%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BC!!#%E5%90%84%E8%A9%B1%E3%83%AA%E3%82%B9%E3%83%88

Yeah it's kinda baffling if you think about it. This has to be deliberate somehow.

Also I'm not really sure how much power does he actually have compared to the director.

Side note: he's also the series composition for Yagakimi, Granbelm, Hitoribocchi, Yorimoi, and Hibikek.
