I'd agree but Tohru could make Kobayashi immortal somehow? Such as changing her into a dragon. That is, if this was Western animation. Probably won't happen in anime.

Yeah I don't really care either to be honest. I keep forgetting that the thing happened.

The problem is that they don't feel like a romantic ship before or after that chapter, or in any of the other media.
They're always the archetypal "friendship" ship, which is frankly not that interesting when there are more romantic-oriented ships in the franchise like ChikaRiko, YuuPomu, NozoEli, KanaMari, EmmaKarin.
If any of those got something like that, you can bet that people here will never stop talking about it.

Actually, ChikaRiko and YuuPomu did get something like that in the anime. Their respective events basically revolutionized the discourse of the Love Live yuri fandom overnight.
Whereas for the RinPana thing, it sadly just feels like a minor footnote in history. Most people's reactions to it were just "oh, alright".

Yes, they are cute. And they fit well together, with Hanayo being mostly shy but enthusiastic about a few things, and Rin being mostly bold but shy about some things. Also, childhood friends are always nice.

It's Kasumi's birthday!

My thoughts on some Kasumi ships.

>ShizuKasu
They genuinely enjoy each other's company.
You might say "of course duh", but this is pretty unique among the other gremlin (Nico, Yoshiko, Sumire) ships which always have an element of the other half of the ship being annoyed at the gremlin's existence.
You have to sidestep this fact when thinking about making romance between them, but not with ShizuKasu because they just like each other period.

Also, they have this kind of "we have each other's backs" kind of dynamic.
This is best shown in episode 8. This makes ShizuKasu unique among Kasumi ships because usually she doesn't take the active protecting role. It gives her more depth than just "the gremlin" of the group.
Shizuku also has a more possessive side when with Kasumi. In fanon she gets a bit yandere too. There's a lot of possessive ships in Niji if you think about it.

>YuuKasu
Yuu/Anata is one of the few people who regularly compliments Kasumi. It's a simple thing to do, but Kasumi seems to greatly appreciate this.
Because of that Kasumi is very protective of Yuu. It's less active like with Shizuku, but more of a defend her honor thing.
The main factors with this dynamic is Yuu being overly affectionate with anyone and Kasumi's general respect for senpais and love for her fans.

>AyuKasu
They're rivals for Yuu/Anata's attention. This dynamic was best shown in episode 2 of the anime.
Kasumi is also the most common victim for Ayumu's passive-aggressive one-upping, especially in fanon and seiyuu antics.
This plays with the fact that unlike the other gremlins, she's easily intimidated by others especially the older girls.
However, they still have a pretty friendly relationship because of Ayumu's general friendliness with kouhais and Kasumi's general respect for her senpais.
They just have a little bit more spice, mainly because of the Yuu rivalry.

>SetsuKasu
Another rivalry ship, but more of an idol rivalry instead of something more personal like AyuKasu.

A sweet KasuShizu doujin with more interesting writing than you'd expect from a standard fake dating plot. For instance, Kasumi has noticed that Shizuku has a crush on her.

I’ve been away for a few months but I’m back because the mad lads finally did it, YuPomu hit 10 million views on Pixiv.
I thought ShizuKasu would hit 5 million views before YuPomu hit 10 million, but ShizuKasu seems to have heavily slowed down over recent months.
Anyway, here’s the top 10 most viewed Niji ships on Pixiv;
>YuPomu – 10.0 million (7.4 million on the 17th August)
>ShizuKasu – 4.9 million (4.0 million on the 17th August)
>AnaPomu – 3.2 million (2.9 million on the 17th August)
>AiRina – 3.1 million (2.6 million on the 17th August)
>KanaShizu – 2.8 million (2.2 million on the 17th August
>KanaHaru – 2.2 million (1.7 million on the 17th August)
>KanaEmma – 2.2 million (1.7 million on the 17th August)
>SetsuKasu – 2.0 million (1.8 million on the 17th August)
>EmmaKari – 1.6 million (1.4 million on the 17th August)
>SetsuKari – 1.4 million (950,000 on the 17th August)
Kanata being a ship magnet will never not be funny.
Anyway, whilst YuPomu has chugged on as if nothing is happening, the other ships are in need of season two to inject some life into them.
Even then desu, Niji is coming dangerously close into entering ‘YuPomu and the rest’ territory, if it hasn’t already. The Niji anime is basically this anyway, isn’t it? So it fits with the story I guess.
I was watching the Niji 3rd Live Blu Ray that released a couple weeks ago, and the digest was literally all about YuPomu, when the digests of previous groups Lives had been about everyone, so I now I’m thinking what on earth is the point of the rest of the Niji cast kek

It's funny cause ChikaRiko got so much hate for supposedly being the centre of everything, but with YuPomu it’s 10x more blatant and everyone loves them(including me desu, YuPomu is good).
Somewhere right now KOUGI is screaming kek

Honestly, what happened to ChikaRiko was a tragedy.
ChikaRiko walked, was beaten half to death by the hate mob known as the Love Live fanbase, and then was abandoned by their own creators to die in a ditch, so that YuuPomu and all the other Niji ships could run.
It was a miracle that YuuPomu didn't get the same horrible treatment by the fanbase.
My theory is that most of the old guard of the fanbase has already lost interest in the franchise by the time Niji aired. The fans who like YuuPomu and the Niji anime today are mostly newer fans who are more accepting of yuri (and character development that wasn't half-assed).
>>
>>3628640
Nah, Nippon just loves childhood friends and couldn't forgive ChikaRiko for breaking You's heart. That's why the movie's attempt to do ChikaRiko included inventing a childhood meeting for them.
>>
>>3628641
Yeah, Childhood friendship is one of the oldest tropes in anime and that's why nips love it so much. But in western forums you can see a lot of people complaining, parodying or being indifferent towards it because that trope appears in a huuuuge amount of anime so at some point they get bored of it. In addition, nips tend to overthink or exaggerate many things, being dishonest doesn't help both sides to understand each other.

>Nah, Nippon just loves childhood friends and couldn't forgive ChikaRiko for breaking You's heart.
No. The hatred for ChikaRiko started way before YouChika was even a thing.
And it's not just the fault of the shippers. I'd say most of the hatred came from the waifufags who considered ChikaRiko as somehow taking screentime away from their pet waifu.
I even remember some musefags who really just hate anything Aqours and any change from the muse seasons.
>>
Oh yeah, I forgot to add one thing.
Among the yuri shippers who dislike ChikaRiko, the YouChika shippers were relatively well behaved compared to the shippers of that one other ship which must not be named.
I don't really remember YouChika shippers harassing artists. I don't think that they even hated ChikaRiko that much compared to that other group of shippers.
>>
>>3628714
As someone who only watched s1, I never saw Chika Riko. But I definitely saw You Chika.
So for me it's not hate, just indifference. I don't see them like that, and probably never will be.

I suppose what ultimately separates friendship from romance when it comes to girls may just be the jealousy, where it gets harder to just look at them as close friends. That's why for example I saw Yu Ayumu, but not much else (with Yu) in niji. Setsuna is just a friend to Yu, and Ayumu got super jealous and clingy as a result. Well, it doesn't help how much she wants to be with Yu forever, for Yu to ONLY look at her, being Yu's idol... and so on. That just gets rather suspicious.


You can ship anything you want pretty easily, but it's rare it's so blunt and in your face like what Yu Ayumu was. Heck, Yu not even hesitating on denying it, when Ayumu claims Setsuna would be more important to Yu than herself, doesn't help. That's perfect boy(girl)friend behavior right there.
No wonder it's on top, really. For the rest you gotta go past the anime and kinda enter the fandom quite a bit to get your fix.
>>
>>3628721
Stepping aside that I don't get how you couldn't see ChikaRiko, yeah that's kind of my point.
YouChika shippers have little reason to hate ChikaRiko because ChikaRiko, or at least the idea of ChikaRiko, is what gives YouChika foundation in the first place, which is the jealousy thing.
If they hate ChikaRiko so much that they want anything ChikaRiko gone from the anime, they would lose YouChika with it too.

I personally see both, but I like ChikaRiko more because they had a kind of season long development between them, while YouChika felt like it was just invented for that one episode and then forgotten.
You's "jealousy" was limited to that single episode vs Ayumu who has it as one of her main personality traits. Honestly, You could've used that personality trait because for most of the anime she didn't have any traits at all.
While from the other side of each pairing, Chika never seemed to care much about You vs Yuu who had a long history with Ayumu and was clearly shown to care deeply about her.

>I suppose what ultimately separates friendship from romance when it comes to girls may just be the jealousy, where it gets harder to just look at them as close friends.
While I somewhat agree, I believe that there's more to YuuPomu than that.
I first "accepted" YuuPomu as a viable ship not in episode 11, but actually in one of the first few scenes of the anime. The part where they just hang out with each other, but with a very strange closeness if you consider them just friends.
Particularly this moment where she just casually took that piece of cream of Yuu's face and eats it.
People like to meme that straight girls act like this all the time with their straight friends, but no that's not true. At least it's not like how it's portrayed here.
There's just a strange obsessive aura between these two.

The funny thing is that that's exactly what happened in S2, when ChikaRiko was destroyed, YouChika just disappeared completely and at the same time You became a one note joke (a bit with Zuramaru too)

>Particularly this moment where she just casually took that piece of cream of Yuu's face and eats it.
that's a trope completely related to romance, if they use it it's because the meaning was completely intentional.

>>3628640

if you consider that Niji is basically a spin-off that did things differently (that is good) in contrast to SS that was a "return to the original" with the director (basically screwed up for the third time) I would say more that Niji appealed to a completely different group of fans (the good ones) while something like SS appealed to idiots from the past who are happy to be treated like idiots and make mediocre fan material.

in the end it's not that the franchise or the fans got better, it's that Niji is different from her deformed sisters.

Yes Anon, the one Love Live series you like is the best, and you're the best for liking it.

If consistent relationship, you mean no switching, then yeah it did a pretty bad job by making people
thinks that KuuKaa is a ship even though there is no evidence. I checked the magazines and there is no evidence of Kuukaa, there is
only KanoChii and a bit of SumiKeke.
>>3621455
I am still not sure if they are willing to go with ShioPomu or LanShio for the next season.
>>3621460
Damn, that's too bad.
>>3621479
>Also about Lanzhu, I think she's too childish and autistic to be shipped with anyone.
Lanzhu could work if they retcon her personality in the anime.
>>3621730
>meaning they were created just for the anime by Saito.
They should have never being made, I listen to their live and it was so bad. The worst rival up to date, even
A-Rise is better. SunnyPa is one of the biggest problems of SS and they still didn't gain any art after their live.
>>3621524
Please remove Anchan debut in T7S confirmed for the next OP.
>>3628078
What about her other ships likes ShioKasu and MiaKasu etc.
>>3628537
Wow, KanaEmma has more view than EmmaKarin, I thought EmmaKarin would have surpass EmmaKanata in view.
