Setsuna looks so fucking dorky, especially when all I can see is her wearing some oversized boxer shorts.

at the end of the day Sunshine has 4 to 8 characters that are useless (I'm talking about the protagonists)

I like how Ayumu's grip towards Yuu is not subtle at all, you can see the strength in those fingers.

I like how much of a dork she is too. Kinda makes it hard to ship her with anyone. But her x vice-prez is cute.

By far the best "student council president that doesn't allow idols" of the whole bunch.
And yeah, I think the vice-pres fangirling hard for her is pretty cute too.
>>
>>3726748
>I like how Ayumu's grip towards Yuu is not subtle at all, you can see the strength in those fingers.
She's also holding (Yuu) closer to her so that Yuu wouldn't get near Setsuna. I guess it's the timeline where she hasn't gotten over her jealousy towards Setsuna yet.

Her thing with the vice president works precisely because it's one of the few ships where she doesn't act like a no thoughts head empty anime otaku.

AHAHAHA EAT SHIT FAGGOT, THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT LOVE LIVE AND BEING A GROUP

So

>Ayumu is going abroad? WTF
>Yuu is going to have her composition contest
>>
>>3727422
>>3727447
They explicitly said that they're not joining Love Live, retard(s).
How the hell did you even misinterpret the episode as that?
>>
>>3727449
my jap is very rusty and they didn't bring enough attention to the issue, but still, they're finally a "group" (without name but still)
>>
Nevermind, apparently they brought up Love Live multiple times but never said if they were or were not joining

Kind of weird they're tip-toeing around what's an elephant in the room now, but I get it, they're probably waiting until the BD numbers come out
>>
>>3727451
No, the point of the episode was that they're decidedly not a group.
They decided against being upgraded to a proper club and having to join competitions like Love Live and such because they prefer being like they currently are right now. Paraphrasing Karin near the end of the episode, not as one single unit, but as themselves with each of them being different to one another.

The event that they're going to have in the coming episodes will be their "first live", where they would perform solos, unit songs, and group songs by themselves (without the groups from the other schools).
>>
Who says the title for the next episode? Ayumu and Yuu?
>>
>>3727471
Both of them I think

Feels like possibly planting the seed of where the series could go next season (if we get a next season).
>>
>>3727490
yeah I felt that too, what with Lanzhu's comment about "I'm not yet ready to stand in the same scenario as you girls". So they could join but don't feel ready yet. I also feel that they're trying their best to bring some closure this time around in case we don't get a movie or a third season.

Holy shit how are you people so bad at reading this

Karin and the other 3rd years have exactly zero thoughts about competing in the dumb contest.
Shioriko and Mia literally said that they don't care about competing in the dumb contest.
Even fucking Lanzhu said that she doesn't care. Her saying that she's not ready to perform with the others means that she's not ready to perform with the others, not that she wants to compete in the dumb contest.

They don't want to compete in the dumb contest. They're not competing in the dumb contest. End of story.
Why do you even want them to compete in the first place?
The main fucking point of the Nijigasaki project is solo idols from day one. Why do you want them to abandon that and follow the tired Love Live formula instead?
>>
>>3727584
why are you so dead set against it? Also Lanzhu literally says that she would like to join you disingenous faggot, it's right fucking there in the episode, but then she says that she doesn't feel ready to stand with them

She said that she was a bit tempted but not really.
The fact that none of them fucking cares about the dumb contest is my point.

I'd also like to add that the main point of this episode is them wanting to stay being different individuals instead of becoming a group.

to join as a "club", otherwise their own members are free to do it as themselves apparently. Nobody knows how love live actually works so we don't even know if they have groups and solo acts separately or together.

Agupon's not even trying to hide her excitement for ep12, there is a hilariously strong "I've been waiting for this day" vibe.
She's been hyping up YuPomu in S2 for months now, time to finally see what got her so elated.
>>
>>3728118
Ayumu is 100% getting a new song
>>
>>3728120
Eh, if she gets a new song it would have to be something like a duet with Yu, because if she gets another solo the cries of "Favouritism" would be deafening.
>>
>>3728123
if they cared about "favoritism" Ayumu would have long ago stopped getting centers, literally the only songs where she isn't a center is on Zensoku Dreamer and Mirai Harmony.

Also Yuu singing completely misses the point of her previous development - she will probably play the piano for this song.

Mirai Harmony being invoked in ep11 and a scene in the ep12 preview brought back this memory.
Is this scene finally coming?
>>
>>3728126
NTA but being the center of a group song multiple times is quite different compared to getting 3 anime solos while the others only have 1 each.

>Also Yuu singing completely misses the point of her previous development
Which part exactly?

IMO it would be fair as long as she's not actually giving a performance like an idol. Singing while playing the piano perhaps.
>>
>>3728139
that's exactly why, people are already questioning why she's not an idol and the previous episodes explained why she isn't one. Making her sing would fly in the face of that and only confuse viewers.

Also Ayumu and Yuu are the protagonists, Nijigasaki isn't really an ensemble series, so I can only consider people that complain about the character focus Ayumu gets to be idiots that lack any kind of long-term memory. The dream started with these two and it will probably end with them, there's a reason for why the first two dialogues in Nijigasaki were from Yuu and Ayumu, while the ending dialogues in season 1 were ''also'' Yuu and Ayumu.
>>
>>3728141
I believe that people will get it as long as it's clear that it's a one-time special occasion.
Though there are people in this very thread who still want them to be a group and compete in Love Live after the yesterday's episode.
Yeah Love Live fans aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, I guess.

But still, a duet would be so romantic. It would also round out their characters by showing that even though they take different paths, the two of them are on the same level.
Again, as long as Yuu only sings in a limited fashion, just this one time, and just with Ayumu.
It's a very fine line that they have to walk so I won't be disappointed if they don't go this route.
>>

Likely similar reasons to why Setsuna was involved with YuPomu in ep12 of s1, her story with Haruka might be relevant with whatever issue Yu&Ayumu are going through next episode.
Iirc Kanata and Haruka's issue in S1 was that they had become *too* independent and both tried to carry the load on their own without help from the other, but in the end they decided to depend more on one another and carry the burden together so to speak.
I guess this would explain why the preview shows a dejected Haruka confiding with Kanata whilst Yuu and Ayumu are shown just brooding on their own.
>>
>>3728287
I guess that's why there's that scene of Haruka going off to the Love Live preliminaries last episode. Interesting.

>Ayumu adding Emma to her list of enemies
>>
Weird theory before the new episode. Maybe the email thing wasn't about Ayumu, but was about Yuu being invited overseas. The email was addressed to Ayumu because she was the one who sent them Yuu's music or something.

I didn't expect no new song to be honest.
>>
Who knew Ayumu would cheat on Yuu with the british
>>
>>3731379
I remember some bongs complaining that they didn't get any love live content despite (arguably) being a relevant country, so the fact that they're finally on Love Live's radar is pretty nice

Also the movie will probably be in London then
>>
>>3731385
but pomu will only be there for two weeks, so unless there's some stupid contrived "ayumu goes missing" plot or something it's still unlikely imho
>>
>>3731385
Will it be a movie or a third season?
They're still quite far away from spring and the graduation stuff.
>>
>>3731386
are you retarded?
Ayumu has to go to London, since she asked Emma before about it, Emma tells her that she will go to Switzerland to visit her family, then Mia tags along because she's bored from Japan and she's a rich whore, then asks Rina to tag along, who gets Ai to tag along, who gets everyone else to tag along and then they pay Kanata's ticket between everyone.

There, I made this in less than 5 minutes.
>>
>>3731388
That sounds like a Love Live plot, not a Nijigasaki plot.
>>
>>3731393
... you're retarded. May I remind you that Ayumu going to London was setup with a simple "Hey Ayumu-senpai, no one in Bongland cares about idols, it would be nice if you were to come here, wouldn't it?"

And that's fucking it, that's a very flimsy justification yet it happened here
>>
>>3731394
Exactly. Simple. Not a contrived setup to get everyone to go abroad for an epic bri'ish adventure, thus rendering the point of Ayumu going there alone meaningless.
>>
>>3731399
??? Who the fuck said Ayumu has to go alone? The entire point of the episode was making her resolute enough to go to London on her own, there's nothing that prevents her friends from catching up with her or going there after she has already decided to do it alone, making that step was HER development.

You're really fucking stupid.

So this episode was basically OG S1's Kotori drama, but this time the characters communicate like normal people.
>>
>>3731516
They had nearly a decade to improve, that's the bare minimum. Still felt kinda flat.
>>
>>3731516
To be fair, Kotori's situation was a bit more serious since she and Honoka would have been separated until they finished High School at the very least.
>>
>>3731547
They only "improved" because the writing team in Nijigasaki is completely different from the mainline series.

The mainline series' writing is consistently as bad as it was a decade ago, seeing how Sunshine and Superstar turned out.
>>
>>3731606
You'd expect the characters to act less dumb in the more serious situation though.

Highschool girls generally act smarter than Honoka and Kotori.
It wasn't even a rash decision, a misunderstanding, or anything. It was just forced drama that came literally out of nowhere.
At least Kanan and Dia's dumb shit with Mari was set up from the beginning.

Not really.

I'd excuse it if it was a rash decision or an emotional response. It wasn't. What Kotori did was a calculated dumb decision that was only made because the writers were hacks who didn't know how to end their season.

I'm happy that they're only going to be separated for two weeks. That way we can have the separation drama and still have them be together afterwards.

The third years going their separate ways in Sunshine was pretty sad.
>>
>>3731633
Hope they're saving something nice for the finale then because S2 peaked with Shioriko's episode. Starting to think they should've handled Lanzhu with two episodes. Or played less safe in general. Of course the writing is better than the other series (Superstar in particular is an abomination), but my heart hasn't been beating fast these last few episodes...

I think that having Lanzhu's story climax be in Mia's episode was the right call.

If there's a problem with Niji S2, it's the fact that it's hard to fit 13 characters, which in of itself is an ungodly amount of characters, in just 13 episodes. They have no choice but to be economical with the limited amount of character focus that they can give.
If they can connect one character's story with another's then they'd do it. This is why episode 12 was also a Kanata episode in addition to being a YuuPomu episode.

And it's not like Lanzhu didn't have enough screentime to flesh out her story. She was basically the season's main plot.
>>
>>3732223
The idea to give one character one episode is terrible anyways. That's happening if you have multiple writers work at shit at the same time.
If you can help it, telling the story in a more organic and less formulaic way is always going to be better. Even if that means some characters get shafted more than others.
>>
>>3732250
It depends on if you want a plot-focused story or a character-focused story.
A plot-focused story can survive with a less than solid cast, but you need a solid plot.
A character-focused story can survive with a less than solid plot, but you need a solid cast.

A franchise like Love Live will never be able to pull of a good plot-focused story.
Why? Because you can't make an engaging plot out of highschool girls singing and dancing no matter how much you try.

It's hard to make a show with good characters if you focus too much on one at a time. Characters get developed by getting put into many different situation, aka interact with different things/people.
I'd actually argue, that's one of the main issues of the franchise and why Bang Dream worked a bit better with its characters. Though of course it's easier to do with not so many in the first place.
It's also why I generally like the "leads" of the love live groups the most. Honoka, Chika and Yuu get to interact with the most things. Of course personal taste will always play a role here as well, and some characters I like more based on that. But that ends up a lot more superficial or is based on relatively small things. Not like that's bad per se, that's in part where fans come in. It's not quite the same though.
>>
>>3732256
The thing about niji is that every characters personality is nerfed compared to the side materials. I'm not expecting Ayumu to go around punching people like in the 4koma but it wouldn't hurt for them to make the girls act a bit more vivid. A lot of the dialog isn't even character-driven, it's just the same "I want to be a good school idol!" platitudes. Whenever I go back and watch clips from OG or Sunshine I get surprised by how much of a difference there is in how the characters act.
>>
>>3732269
Yeah, you're absolutely right. The franchise's magic number 9 is an insane number of characters to begin with.

However, I do appreciate the effort that the Niji anime made to keep the focus relatively balanced. After 25 episodes I consider these 13 characters to be "real" enough vs most of the Muses and Aqours being bland cardboard cutouts.

>>3732276
>A lot of the dialog isn't even character-driven, it's just the same "I want to be a good school idol!" platitudes.
There's almost nothing of that sort in the Niji anime. What the hell are you talking about?
And almost every line of dialog is character-driven. Especially compared to the dialogue in OG and Sunshine where the characters are almost always speaking in turn like a hivemind, the only thing differentiating them being their catchphrases and gimmicks.




>>
>>3732276
Also most of the characters' personality aren't nerfed. Most of them are improved actually.

Rina's not just a generic genki girl with a mask. She's someone who struggles with communication issues and use the mask to overcome it.
Setsuna's not just a generic otaku genki girl. She's someone who can be responsible as the student council president, and her double life gimmick actually has meaning now.

I blame all the people who "joked" about Ai being a lolicon for AiRina being phased out for RinaMa. Both the WW and JP fanbase were at it, it was annoying.

This season was really, really good. Could've been perfect with a little more conflict and angst, but that's probably a personal bias. I want both a movie and another season, they really made something special with this entry in the franchise.

Now... hoping Superstar S2 is not as offensive as the latter half of S1 was. I guess I'll have to start drinking again to face every episode if they don't improve the writing by 100%

It's held back by the whiny insufferable cringelord Yoshiko though

Also, it's a "short movie" to be streamed on the Love Live official YouTube channel. It doesn't seem like it's going to be a full length season.

Okay now that I've read the news more closely, there's going to be
1. A "series anime" in 2023
2. A "short movie" streamed on YouTube to promote the "series anime" thing
3. Other stuff like a radio show, etc

Still, why does it have to be a generic rpg setting and fucking Yoshiko.

I just saw the trailer. I didn't even know that a trailer was released 3 weeks ago.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRYJrV18QNw
What is this? Why does it look like the most generic idolshit imaginable?

If you compare it with Niji S2's first trailer it's like they weren't even trying. Why? Why did they screw up something as simple as a trailer?

>tfw I recognize most of these artists and RT them daily

I think my only concern with the final episode if it was too insider-y? It's possible to enjoy it on its own, but you really get a bigger kick from it if you indulged in everything Nijigasaki. But considering how much of Niji's success has been driven by fans (they were only meant to be game-only characters), it was nice to see the series give a shoutout to its fandom--locally and overseas.
>>
I know the μ's anime did something similar by showing off the New Year wood board wishes made by fans, but did Aqours do it in Sunshine?
>>
>>3736771
There references weren't story related and weren't stupidly in-your-face like "Honoka Coffee" so I think that it's fine.

I might be biased because they showed my Southeast Asia home country in the episode. Being noticed gives a warm and fuzzy feeling.
>>
>>3736797
*The references
>>
>>3736680
At this point I'd take generic idolshit over whatever that trailer was. It's so, so bad. Watching this season just after Niji's 2nd is going to be a depressing experience. Unless they went for a stupid trailer on purpose to make the actual series look better in comparison... even if it's not going to help that much at all.
>>
>>3736680
Thank God we're finally getting something good after the disappointment that was Niji's 2nd season. Whoever's choice it was to air Liella 2 a month after Niji ended is a genius. It would've been unbearable to wait as long as it usually took between generations to stew in Niji trash

We may be Nijifag central, but really? Get better bait. It may be better if you attempt to falseflag, though given how low effort your bait is, I doubt you can even pull that off

I'm late to the party, but it's funny that LL now has his own version of Joe, Planet Sheen, The Cleveland Show, The Battle for Endor or more extreme, the Minions and Rabbids.
I thought that the Vtuber project was the worst thing they could do after SS.

I'd much rather them do something new with existing characters than repeat the same godawful premise for the Nth time with new ones.

The examples I mentioned show exactly what happens with that "something new with old characters" premise, in the end it's just lazy writing with easy jokes and autofanservice with the original series.

Niji was the final proof that you can use the Idol premise with LL and they will do a fantastic job with it, that the other series don't do a good job, it's something different. By the way, I loved the final episode, being a spin-off it would be great if this could have more seasons and not just the final movie, although the movie would be good anyway.

Here's hoping we'll get some good stuff out of Yohane's spin-off

I think that there's actually quite a bit of chance for a third season because
1. Season 2 ended far from the third years' graduation unlike the other series' second seasons. They still have 2-3 months if we assume that season 2 ended around mid-January.
2. Ayumu ended up going to London alone and only for a short period of time (2 weeks)
3. Yuu still has her concert thing in Japan. The others also aren't itching to go to London.
4. The two new British girls (the color reversed YuuPomu) have unique character designs and are probably going to be important characters with their own story.

frankly that would be great, that this will be the series that really does things different from the main line (which repeats itself a lot) you can still do a lot with these characters that remain the same people (without mutating horribly like the others)

There's also still some stuff from the game they can mine for stories, like Emma finally meeting Mai. Same for the bond stories. I have no idea what the anime staff could get from S3 of the game because the story has been aimless for months and I don't even think the writers remember the whole School Idol Exhibition plotline anymore. What is interesting is that S3 is kinda mirroring the S2 anime theme of wondering about the future. Anata isn't certain if being a composer is what she wants in life and questions if she would have the same passion for composing for those who are not her friends.
