I think that anon meant episode 4 which was the highest rated episode of the season, not last week's one which was the third lowest.

I don't think that is something strange, it was a silly episode of parody of "addiction" and "scandal" honestly it didn't help Ren much as a character and it only showed how superficial red x blue is as a couple, I had a feeling that they would handle them badly , but not so lazily.
Frankly Kanon is really boring as a character.

I am realizing that the main line, has a serious lack of direction or identity, each series is not very different from the other beyond the change of scenery and walking memes.

the point of new Love Live! series is to attract new fans so it checks out.
>>
>>3776699
Are there actually new fans though?
I think that most Liella fans are just old Musefags who left when Aqours happened and came back because they consider Liella to be the true successor to Muse.
At least the writers are clearly trying to pander to them with the lameass Muse references that they put in every episode.

What a shit OP
>>
I'm new to Love Live. I tried watching it in the past but I never found other entries enjoyable and always dropped it. Nijigasaki is better for me than something like Sunshine. But Superstars became more enjoyable because of Mei and Shiki.
I do really find Keke and Sumire cute since they're tsundere with each other.
>>
>>3776759
>I do really find Keke and Sumire cute since they're tsundere with each other.
All Keke does this season is make baseless insults at Sumire every single time she opens her mouth, and all Sumire does this season is nothing besides taking those baseless insults and being ignored by everyone else. Where the hell is the tsundere part of them?
>>
>>3776748
well, lame writing too, that's why we have school "problems" and funny animals, in addition to meme characters that people claim to have personality.

>the point of new Love Live! series is to attract new fans so it checks out.
if that's the case, the Pokemon anime does a better job and that's not kind of continuity.

Aikatsu would be a more correct example of that, each series dealt with something new, on the contrary the main line in LL is always the same idea and lack of identity each one.

Do you know which series was really different? Niji, with no Love Live as a goal, individual idols, then coherent units and consistency, no prior knowledge is needed for Niji and anyone can enter it at any time.

>>3776794
>Where the hell is the tsundere part of them?
it's the same dumb logic as with NicoMaki, people try so hard to pretend they're doubletsun when it's actually something completely different, doing things together and being in the same scene? There are real examples of doubletsun, but LL doesn't have any of that.

Well I take that as Keke still being mad at Sumire over her behavior in season 1. But I believe that anger is not the anthesis of love. If she hated Sumire she wouldn't stick to her all the time and make everything about her. In my imagination she's into her and is mad about it. Ofc you can interpret it differently, but given that not much is given anyways any shipping that depends on goggles. My main interest is the maintext ship though.

The problem is that Keke and Sumire don't tease or make fun of each other, which would be endearing to watch. Like that neesan said, Keke takes a shot at Sumire every time she opens her mouth and Sumire never responds. Who the fuck thought that was a good idea? Keke isn't tsundere, she's a cunt. They completely ruined her and Sumire in season 2.

They didn't ruin Sumire. On the contrary she's the only one who became better in S2 while everyone else became worse.

When it comes to Sumire, the group interactions boil down to these two patterns.

Pattern 1
>Sumire: literally minds her own business
>Keke: insults her for no reason
>Sumire: does nothing or says something like "Hey! I'm not that bad"

Pattern 2
>Sumire: says something that makes sense
>Keke: says that she's wrong and insults her for no reason
>Chisato: agrees with Keke for no reason
>Kanon Sue: says the opposite thing that makes no sense
>Keke: agrees with Kanon because she's always right
>Chisato: agrees with Kanon because she's always right
>Ren: silently agrees with the others
>Sumire: gives up

The interactions read like really bad fanfiction.

yes, it's quite obvious and it can even be said that they did that because another bitch would be introduced and you couldn't have the same meme twice.

any fucking reasons why Superstar is hated more than Sunshine?
still baffled at the charts from two weeks ago
>>
>>3781156
Very little intimate interactions compared to Sunshine. Kanon doing everything. Sumire and Keke's obnoxious exchanges. Ren and Sumire never doing or saying anything. Excessive "funny" faces and other such "comedy". Meandering plot from any generic idol series.
Add all this to it airing right after Nijigasaki (which handled a much larger cast much more gracefully and had lots of yuri), and Superstar doesn't come out looking great.

hated where? anyway I dont think its necesarily hate but rather people are getting bored, maybe staff is taking it easy because they know there will be another season but who knows, if things remain the same It wouldnt surprise me if superstars s2 ends up as the worst season of love live simple because its boring not because it had outright shit episodes
>>
>>3781156
Sunshine only had one insultingly bad episode. The rest were fine, some really good even.

Superstar on the other hand had multiple insultingly bad episodes. The rest were at best boring. There are no good Superstar episodes.
Episode 6 in particular was so bad it made the fucking dog episode look like a masterpiece.

Superstar S1 at least had three fairly decent episodes. The current season is atrocious, the new characters added nothing new to the group, even the songs and animation are blander. As someone else pointed out, this drastic drop in quality from the already-struggling S1 airing just after a solid Niji season didn't help either. I had a few problems with OG's S1 and Sunshine S2 but they're masterpieces compared to Superstar S2.

https://w.atwiki.jp/nicoliveanimesurvey/pages/847.html
The previous worst rated season, Sunshine S2 had an average score of 79.8

https://w.atwiki.jp/nicoliveanimesurvey/pages/1566.html
Superstar S2 currently has an average of 67.76.
For the remaining 4 episodes they had to get an average of at least 104.2 to surpass Sunshine S2.
So yeah, it's officially the worst season if we consider niconico ratings a reliable indicator of quality.

I never liked the ship desu but it's funny that they are currently the two worst characters in the franchise.
Kanon is now just a Mary Sue who does literally everything and is always right no matter how dumb and contrived the situation is.
Keke is now just an annoying bitch whose only purpose is to repeat the same unfunny joke every single fucking episode.
>>
>>3781653
>we
I'm pretty sure that very few thought that Superstar S2 was not going to be a bad season, we thought that it was impossible for it to be worse than S1

more than an isolated problem, it is an accumulation of factors, superstar is the final proof that Love Live formulas, it really does not work and people were lenient with OG and Sunshine (especially in S2 of each one)
>>
>>3781664
I personally dislike Superstar, but come the fuck on, this place is not reflective of the overall love live fanbase. Plenty of people were hyped for the series and I also remember those Liellafags in /vg/ claiming that the series was going to "save the franchise" or whatever other shit they told themselves.
>>
>>3781653
should have wrapped it on 3rd episode
>>
>>3781667
I don't know about /vg/ or any other of the English-speaking parts of the fanbase, but I've been lurking around 5ch's Love Live board lately.
It seems that the Japs (in general) haven't been optimistic about Superstar since season 1 episode 8 (the Ren episode). The S1 finale and announcement for S2 was met with little fanfare, and the announcement of the new members made them even less optimistic.

But of course there are Liella/Superstar fanatics there too. A big meme now is how the Superstar fanatics (星信) keep accusing anons of being Niji fanatics (虹信) whenever they shit on Superstar. Or them saying that the Niji fanatics are deliberately sabotaging Superstar by bombing the Niconico scores or by doing a false flag operation which caused the Hokkaido lodge controversy 3 weeks ago.
The 5ch people are pretty funny.

mad that het material is not allowed on a yuri board? I don't see that I did something bad, why do you defend the het so much?

>>3781698
yes, that's what happens in general and it's people who for some reason are afraid to come to this thread, they never have a real basis for superstar and they only attack Niji out of pure jealousy.
>>
>>3781667
Actually I never talked about the fan base, when I reflected on the franchise, I was referring to the staff and all the people who work in it, as they cannot maintain a consistent writing within the continuity of the anime and always resort to fanservice in one form or another.
>>
>>3781713
at least they stopped shitting on Niji when it became apparent how much superstar s2 sucks, but I find it silly how every nitpick or issue people appear to have with Supestar gets them instantly labelled as shitposters by these 2-3 dedicated assholes. I find it even funnier how they behave like people can't recognize their posting style when one asshole spent weeks saying "meds" to every superstar criticism, or implying that everyone that posted the same shitpost (lol lmao even) was the same guy. Those Liellafags are unironically killing the /vg/ threads.

I agree with what you said, before the natsumi episodes I was barely ok with the way kanon had been portrayed in s2 but after those 2 episodes I couldnt take it anymore, if only had they kept they same kanon we had during the first episodes of s1, that kanon was good
as for keke shes outright a huge cunt, what she does to sumire is not banter or what you would expect of that kind of pairing theyre trying to push with sumire. maybe we will see something different from what we saw from the pv but to be honest I dont have huge hopes for staff to fix the couple, if im proven to be wrong that would be great

Superstar S2 isn't horrible, it's just -- as the kids these days put it, mid. It's boring. Ironically, S2 of Superstar is suffering from problems that people say the Niji anime has. No story; no direction, and no impact. The 5th Niji live dominated the weekend discourse, I know, but nearly no one talking about the latest episode of Superstar after it came back from a one-week hiatus is a big problem. It didn't take long for Kinako to fade in the background and Kanon still does everything in her now nine-girl assemble. Wien was a breath of fresh air, but the writers haven't done shit with her since her introduction. The ShikiMei episode is the only standout of S2.
>>
>>3781643
Oooh, you sure got me! Anon, I know you cream your pants over Niji, but if that barely there subtext is your definition of "lots of yuri" I'm not sure who's the retard, here.

If people think that S2 is just boring then it'll just be lukewarmly received like S1 was.

But S2 has so much dumb bullshit in it like
- le wacky faces
- The god forsaken muse references
- Blue speaking random English and dumb le wacky inventions
- Red and Yellow's entire schticks
- Keke being the most insufferable bitch
- Chisato, Ren, and Kinako being nothing but Kanon yes-men (Keke too but her bitch thing is worse)

S2 is everything wrong about S1 and the Love Live anime in general ramped up to 11.

But the last straw for me was episode 6.
No, Kanon shouldn't have teleported literally 500 miles to deliver her dumbass sermon to Yellow.
It shouldn't have been her in the first place. The other first years were literally there. Why did they go all the way to Hokkaido just to have Kanon do literally everything for the 1000th time?
It didn't make sense logically nor thematically. It was absolutely unwatchable.

I feel so bad for the real life Liella cast. They're clearly doing their best, but it's clear that the director and Hanada just don't fucking care at all.
They care more about Muse their only success/fluke, than the characters they're supposed to be making an anime about.

You obviously havent watched the show properly.

Nobody knew what to expect from SS S1 so its mistakes were overlooked for its novelty but in S2 everyone expected more than just a boring to ok-ish season, the idea behind the new, and old, characters isn't bad but the execution isn't the best out there so maybe that's what's more infuriating about SS S2, good idead but not so good staff.

If it's another "Kanon Sue solves everything" episode, it'll probably beat Sunshine S1's finale as the most hated episode of the franchise.
>>
>>3782613
>If it's another "Kanon Sue solves everything"
It was a really silly thing to do, especially having the secondary girls supposedly take care of it, for Kanon to do it anyway.
Kanon is what people unfairly accused Chika and Honoka of.
>>
>>3782701
Ayumu was accused of the same too, particularly because she got two songs. I still remember the "hurrrr but everyone will surely get a new song in the final episode" cope by these fuckers lol
>>
>>3782753
it's funny how Ayumu is the most different of them and even Niji doesn't really work under the same hierarchy that LL insists on pointing out, in S1 Chika and Honoka were decent, the 2 changed in S2 for the worse but in a different way, then there's Kanon who she overcomes her "problems" and now nothing can stop her (literally)

It's also silly how now the joke character is Keke and Sumire is a normal person, compared to everyone else.
>>
What's the true rank of LL, best to worst?
>>
>>3782756
in what sense? I would personally put from best to worst:

1-Niji
2-Sunshine
3-OG
4-SuperStar

I wouldn't know what others thought and sunshine is there mainly for S1 and OG for the first half of S1
>>
>>3782753
I think that Ayumu got less heat than Chika or Honoka because Yuu exists.
And Yuu got less heat because everyone expected her to be the ultimate self-insert Mary Sue stereotype, but she ended up pretty normal and chill.
>>
>>3782756
Without fanworks:
Niji
Sunshine
Superstar >= OG
With fanworks:
Sunshine
OG
Niji
Superstar
Just my opinion of course, heavily affected by which ships I like
>>
Speaking of ships and stuff, I recently realized that I don't have Niji ships that I outright hate.
I have my favorites and stuff that I personally consider "canon" of course, but even then the crackiest of crack ships don't bother me. I find some rare pairings cute actually.

But for the other series, for some reason I just hate nearly all of them.
For Muse I only tolerate RinPana. I don't like any of the other Muses and their ships.
For Aqours I liked RubyMaru, any third year combos, pre-S2 ChikaRiko. Any ships involving You or Yoshiko can go to hell. Also, I have a special hatred for YouRiko and YouChikaRiko.
For Liella, honestly I just hate all of them. If I had to, I'd tolerate RenSumire because they're the least annoying ones in S2.

It's weird because I don't feel this way with any of the other franchises that I follow. There's something about Love Live characters that pisses me off for some reason.
The Niji characters are the exception. They feel like normal anime characters.
>>
>>3782798
Maybe it's because they're too loopy? They remind me of Animaniacs. Niji feels way more normal.
>>
>>3782798
>being this mad of crack ships of with no basis

Sis... Take your meds.
>>
Niji and Superstar are both boring. Rather watch Shine Post.
>>
>>3782829
the non-bases help is to increase the number of stupid fans, who act like superior beings for stupid reasons, ironically that type of fans in LL and bad couples, can be compared to series that are not yuri and the fans are irritating with their favorite couples, like Higurash.

>>3782798
I feel similarly, the mainline couples just don't work, they just have territorial and dumb fans (like when a Doujin HonoMaki was uploaded or translated and you had comments of people complaining about it and that the author should just dedicate himself to NicoMaki)

>>3782813
It also doesn't help that the characters in the main line either become parodies of themselves or stick with only one characteristic (remember when Umi didn't just scold Honoka?)

I really hope thats not the case, seriously if the china arc ends up saved by kanon then all the staff can go and fuck themselves, this is the perfect chance for them to cement sumire and keke as a real couple and not something forced that they have been doing for this season
>>
>>3782893
>the china arc
I think it's better not to have that kind of expectation, considering how bad it was to introduce new characters and continue without giving real development to the ones they already have, I don't expect the "china arc" to be something real or leave it for the movie and be a bad hybrid as the other 2 movies have been, especially the sunshine one.

>cement sumire and keke as a real couple
they are a meme couple, they are not made to be good, but so that people do not forget them.

Rewatching season 1 of Nijigasaki as preparation for the live, and man, I had forgotten how hard the relationship between Ayumu and Yuu hits. It's so damn well developed and you can actually understand Ayumu's feelings in episode 11 after watching episode 1, and noticing how she and Yuu started drifting apart as a consequence of the idol club.

It's truly a beautiful story and anyone that calls Ayumu "muh toxic" is a stupid speedwatcher.

Tomorrow is the last day so probably tomorrow. There are 4 days this time.

Speaking of the 5th live, there are suspiciously no new announcements in last week's day 1 and day 2, and today's day 3. Usually they announce little stuff each day and save the biggest announcements for the last day.

Maybe tomorrow's announcement will be something crazy big.

Which part of the 3 episodes you watched made you think this specifically?
And honestly, Love Live characters have always been designed by committee. Niji is actually the exception to that rule imo
>>
>>
>>
>>3783222
Are you implying that Niji S2 was bad?

Especially compared to the dumpster fires that was OG S2 and Sunshine S2?
And the ongoing flaming radioactive trainwreck that is Superstar S2?
>>
>>3783230
>Which part of the 3 episodes you watched made you think this specifically?
Honestly it's been so long that I don't remember anything specific, I just remember that being the vibes I got back then. Maybe I was just burnt out on idol anime
>>
>>3783251
I guess you can rewatch those 3 episodes and see if you still don't like it.

Personally, I like it because compared to the usual Love Live:
- The story is more grounded and down-to-earth.
- The characters feel more like real-life humans than cartoon characters. Also they don't talk insanely fast and scream at my ears every minute.
- Character development exists
- The yuri is more pronounced and is treated with respect. Especially for the main duo Yuu and Ayumu
- The songs are all bangers
>>
>>3783240
>Are you implying that Niji S2 was bad?
the usual unsubstantiated nonsense, the sad part is that the facts show the opposite and show that Niji is superior.

>dumpster fires that was OG S2 and Sunshine S2
this happens when you listen to the wrong fans.

> trainwreck that is Superstar S2
S1 wasn't good either, so...

>>3783251
>Maybe I was just burnt out on idol anime
That way of thinking of some people has always seemed funny to me, on the contrary, I who consume more than necessary, I have not felt burned in the least, not even with Idol or anime in general.
I just find the state of the fandoms sad, especially the main line of LL.

>>3783216

I'm sorry, but I don't think I'll ever buy SumiKeke. I see no reason why Sumire was so worried about Keke going back to China, when Keke is always a bitch to her. And the fact that it took nine episodes for the two to resolve their differences (again, because the Nonfiction episode was supposed to do this) makes it worse. Not to mention, SumiKeke killed KuuKaa, which was far more natural and endearing to watch. Anyway, three episodes left and Wien still has no motivation or personality. Also, SunnyPa jobbed offscreen and will never have an animated performance.
>>
>>3785076
>And the fact that it took nine episodes for the two to resolve their differences
Haven't watched the last few episodes but it seems more like there were 8 episodes of Keke being a shit for no reason and 1 episode of them "reconciling".

Also, I heard that there's a scene of Kanon being angry(?) at Sumire. What's the context of that?

>why Sumire was so worried about Keke going back to China, when Keke is always a bitch to her
I think that the only reason is that she is madly in love with Keke. It's funny that we have a similar conflict in Lycoreco but here without being a matter of death and life, Sumire in this case acted like Yuzu and just endured Keke's abuse maybe thinking that she had a lot of stress thanks to her family's ultimatum, or at least that's my interpretation of their relstionship.
>>3785090
Sunny Pa lost off-screen to Margaret so Sumire wanted only the second years in Love Live to secure their victory and to keep Keke in Japan but she didn't wanted to reveal Keke's secret so she did her "show business" diva thing and that made Kanon angry
>>
>>3785368
So basically Keke is the shittiest character in the entire franchise.
I can't believe I'm defending Sumire of all people, but she doesn't deserve Keke or the abuse that she constantly gets from her.
No, actually the abuse that she gets from the others too. Every time she dares to speak her opinion, everybody (not just Keke) immediately shuts her up even though she's right actually. Episode 5 comes to mind.
>>
>>3785391
>No, actually the abuse that she gets from the others too. Every time she dares to speak her opinion, everybody (not just Keke) immediately shuts her up even though she's right actually. Episode 5 comes to mind.
so much this, at this point shes my fav girl and it sucks seeing how it took too long for the writers to make her justice, I seriously dont see how they thought that keke's banter looked like that just banter and not outright cuntish behavior
>>
>>3785454
Yeah. My "favorite" Liellas are Sumire and Ren now, not because I actually like their characters but because of pity.
The rest of the second years are horrible human beings if they exist irl.
The first years are simultaneously both annoying meme machines and non-existent.

Though Sumire did improve from her being an annoying meme machine in S1 to being the only sane person in this group of brainless Kanon zealots.

fortunately the NND ratings hasn't been updated

fanservice and pandering.

>>3785611
Well the first part is about how Sunny Pa was destroyed by Wein and how Liella reacted to them, also there was a joke about how Shiki and Natsumi wanted to poison Wein and with that the last, hopefully, time that Keke was a bitch to Sumire implying she would do somethibg similar to win but offscreen defeat/victory aside the rest of the episode was good for SS standards and I don't think there is a lot of fans for the losers to be that amnoyed for their defeat even if that was the worst case scenario for that plot point.
>>
>>3785782
>them
*that
>>
>>3785782
Didn't watch the episode, but from what I've seen from people complaining about it
- For some reason Wien can participate in the contest as a middle schooler even though it was established in this very season that a school idol can only participate in Love Live 3 times (each year in high school)
- Even though in OG and Sunshine it was established that the contest is held twice a year so the previous retcon doesn't make sense either. It's a retcon of a retcon.
- Wien can participate as a solo idol which is, uhh???
- How SunnyPa lost is a rehash of Saint Snow but worse
- Sumire is made to be the villain and shamed by Jesus Kanon Christ even though everything is Keke's fault
- I'm not 100% sure on this, but it seems like the reason Keke was such a bitch to Sumire is because she suspected that Sumire already told the others. If that's true then this is not how regular humans act. You seriously can't trust your so-called "friend" of 1.5 years at this point? And Keke did in this episode doesn't make up for the shit that she put Sumire through this entire season which, again, no sane human would ever do for something as dumb as this.

Also what the hell is that poisoning "joke"? Are these girls fucking psychopaths?
Where are those people who were pearl-clutching over Ayumu's harmless """stalking""", when these girls were literally planning on murdering someone over a dumb fucking contest?
>>
>>3785847
>- Sumire is made to be the villain
Well that was something that Sumire tried to do herself, and failed in the end.
>she suspected that Sumire already told the others
I don't think so that is something that it wasn't even mentioned if I'm not wrong.
>poisoning "joke"
I don't think it was lethal, maybe something to make Wein sick or something that will make her underperform.
>>
>>3785857
Wait wait wait
So there's no reason why Keke was constantly being such a shit to Sumire? Not even an excuse?
Did Keke even apologize? I thought there's some kind of apology and promise not to be a shit to her again.

>I don't think it was lethal, maybe something to make Wein sick or something that will make her underperform.
I can't believe I'm reading this sentence. Did they do the "joke" before or after they know Keke has to go home if they lose?
Even if they don't know, no sane person would even think about doing something like this what the fuck

God there's no saving Superstar at this point huh
>>
>>3785868
>Wait wait wait

No, if there was anything it was just implied also no apology, it was like watching Citrus all over again with how desperate was Sumire to keep Keke in Japan.
>before or after
Before, just a "Shiki is mad scientist and Natsumi is a dumb piece of shit moment"
>>
>>3785879
So Keke did nothing wrong from the story's viewpoint, and there's a good chance that she will still be a shit to Sumire after this episode too?

You know what? If this is all true then 45.8 is a bit too generous I think.
At least Citrus had that mexican telenovela camp going on for it. This just sounds boring and retarded.
>>
>>3785889
>she will still be a shit to Sumire after this episode too?
They will bant, as in actual bant like what they did after the main SumiKeke scene with Sumire being active in the bant and not being somewhat passive like in most of S2.

Jesus christ, are the writers drunk? How did they not see the blatant contradiction in the Sunny Passion scene?

It was a laxative. Apply just before the show and watch her make a mess.
>>
>>3785847
for someone who hasnt watched the episode you sure know a lot, most of your points are correct except this one
>- I'm not 100% sure on this, but it seems like the reason Keke was such a bitch to Sumire is because she suspected that Sumire already told the others.

also the poisoning is meant to be a joke, if you seriously thought they wanted to kill her or something really grave then youre retarded, at most it was a Laxative, also youre assuming no sane person would thinnk about doing that but we know that natsumi would totally do it, shes just that kind of girl, it seems youre exaggerating in certain thing and also making a lot of assumptions for
as for keke yeah she was in the wrong keeping the girls in the dark, dont think they will address this subject further unless they want to go all in with the china arc, if thats not happening then forget that the rest of the girls will call keke out for her bullshit
>>

I've been lurking 5ch's love live board lately.

It's way more entertaining than watching the actual show itself.

And I know that it's just a joke. It was just an extremely dumb and unfunny one.

>also youre assuming no sane person would thinnk about doing that but we know that natsumi would totally do it, shes just that kind of girl
Exactly. No sane person would think of doing that. Natsumi and Blue are not sane people.

But my main beef with this one, besides that it's a horrible joke, is the fact that there was a moral panic around Ayumu's ""stalking"" but no one's talking about this even though it's literally a felony and like a million times worse than anything Ayumu could ever do.

And my problem with Keke is the fact that her atrocious behavior isn't even acknowledged as a problem from the show writer's point of view.
No apology. No hope for improvement. Everything literally is Sumire's fault.
>>
>>3785940
to be honest I dont remember any shitstorm regarding ayumu's stalking so I cant compare it

I agree with what youre saying about keke but shes not the only suffering from this shitty writing, the first natsumi episode was full of bullshit that actually made me dislike almost everyone with the exception of sumire, something we have seen at least from this season is that whenever a problem arises kanon will solve it and no one will blame anyone

The problem isn't /u/ but the ratings in Japan. We know it isn't the yuri because this is Love Love and Nijigasaki was popular in some part thanks to the yuri but SS apparently can't do that and that they put some of the worst parts of the season with the gayest moments doesn't help the entire Sunny Pa BS was something that the fandom didn't wanted since the end of S1 also Kuuka was a mistake that it only fueled shipping wars that maybe are also hurting the series, or just Keke in general that become too annoying to be a likable character

>>
>>3786096
>never put KuuKaa under the spotlight on the first place
I think that was the idea but the amount of adoration from Keke to Kanon fueled a ship that was never meant to be a thing, in retrospective it feels that all the focus on Kanon in S2 was a way, the worst way, to capitalize in Kanon's popularity and in the dinamics of KuuKa like Kinako in their first episodes and Natsumi in her episode and that's why Kanon felt sometimes like the MC of a harem anime and no I don't think it was a bad idea to not change ChiKanon for KuuKa and repeat the same mistake of Sunshine, sadly they also didn't use ChiKanon focusing in the first years and in SumiKeke instead. In some ways I feel that the staff is struggling to evolve from the early 2010s if we talk about yuri.

LL in a nutshell, they and the dumb fans, they think they are doing things right, but it has been shown that it only affects the quality of the series, but as long as we have dumb people who say "we don't need canon" then the staff will continue to screw it up indefinitely.

The problem comes from NND ratings that are the worst for the franchise in its entire history and those ratings come from Japan the land or the main target for LL. Our problem as foreigners is that we don't know how the staff will react to those ratings, maybe Liella can be saved the Aquors way but we don't know if that will be the case, at least Nijigasaki is the proof that the problem is bad writing and not the borderline maintext yuri that they are giving us, also Lycoreco ironically protected LL from those yuri hater trolls.
>>
>>3786297
It's funny that attitude of victims, but at the same time of victimizers, it's as if SumiKeke is superior and we are all fools for thinking differently (that also applies to the other 2 popular couples)

We don't hate the couple because we have mental problems, we are upset about the terrible characterization of the people and the way the couple has been portrayed, Sumire is a better character than she was in S1, but that doesn't justify the bitch attitude of Keke and now pretend it's the best couple ever created, it's just stupid.

Personally, I'm not interested in the couple, I'm not interested in any superstar couple either, I'm complaining about the series itself and the characters.
>>
>>3786272
>shit talking each other
Correction:
1. the shit talking only came from one side.
2. it's more the same baseless insults to Sumire's character repeated ad nauseam than "banter" as the redditors put it
>>
>>3786320
Another problem is that these people don't seem to understand Sumire's character either, although that's normal for popular couple shippers, personality is irrelevant, because they just project what they want, onto the characters.

it's annoying to compare, but look how Ayumu acted jealous and possessive, but later she reflected that she was being jealous and possessive and that was a bad thing, if YuuPomu was made in the main line, that would have been a "joke"
>>
>>3786320
I actually started to like Sumire much better (without Keke included, I have actual taste) once she was made into a strawman that would only say something wrong to be shat upon by Keke and then corrected by Kanon. The past episode only made me pity her more, with Kanon and her bullshit almost slapping her because she was a good friend that didn't spread a secret beyond her own person.
>>
>>3786316
>The problem comes from NND ratings
even if the ratings are from japan, using nnd like if theyre the most important thing ever is just nonsense, we are not longer in pre 2010, if they really care about what people think about the episodes they will have better and more accurate results using bilibilli and other streaming sites despite not being japanese, if they staff are really concerned about the ratings of a dying plataform then theyre absolute morons, if they really want to know what their own people think about the episode they will get better data using youtube, twitter and other sites instead of relaying on nnd just because that site happens to stream the episode
>>
>>3786328
that's not how marketing and development staff (or at least GOOD staff) looks at things, have you ever worked at a multimedia company? You don't look at the stuff that your supporters are saying, because most of them will praise whatever you do no matter what, you look at the complaints (at least the sensible ones) and issues that the fanbase has problems with, then you work out something from there.

If all you do is listen to positive feedback that creates a circlejerk effect where you will never improve on the defects of your story and/or product.
>>
>>3786323
Well Kanon didn't knew what was really going on so I don't blame her for that and now that you mentioned it at least Keke saved Sumire from Kanon's rage there.
>>
>>3786323
>that would only say something wrong to be shat upon by Keke and then corrected by Kanon
Wait did she ever say something wrong in S2?

In Natsumi's intro episode, Sumire's the one who's right about Natsumi being a greedy manipulating POS, with evidence mind you.
In response to that, Keke made a "takes one to know one" insult defending someone she barely knows over her teammate of over a year at that point.
Chisato the supposed club leader who should be neutral in these cases fucking agrees with Keke for some reason.
Kanon the actual club/cult leader "corrected" her contrary to the actual evidence. She's only "right" because the story made her right in the next episode despite it making no sense at all.

Speaking of the next episode, Sumire brought up the Natsumi contract issue again at the end. Something anybody whose brain is still turned on would be thinking about.
Chisato responded with "fuck off with your logical reasoning don't ruin the moment".

In the last episode, even though I don't personally agree with Sumire's plan since it was cruel to the 1st years (and holy shit if I was her I won't give a fuck about what happens to Keke she could be executed by the CCP for all I care), what she's saying does make sense if they truly want to win this time.
Kanon responded by almost doing physical violence instead of talking like a normal person.
She's way more tolerating of an outsider (Natsumi in her episode) than her own fucking teammate (of over a year at this point).
>>
>>3786333
I should have put "wrong" between quote marks, because yes, anyone sensible enough would understand that Sumire is being the most down-to-earth and reasonable member of Liella through this season, but because Kanon and co., are a bunch of irrational and/or nonsensical characters whose personalities and motivations are based on what the plot dictates has to happen, she has to look wrong.
>>
>>3786333
Natsumi wasn't that outspoken about her goals when she was with Kanon so I don't think that's fair with her. Sumire said that she was basically using Liella to return to her "show business" life in Kanon's face and Kanon even give her the chance to deny it but Sumire didn't that and then Kanon almost slaps her. In some way I think the secon years underestimated Natsumi and treated her like a child playing to be a scummy businesswoman.
>>
>>3786329
their supporters arent the only ones who use the sites I mentioned, you can find plenty of complaints on those sites aswell, my issue was that nnd is no longer the place to go if you want to get useful feedback

also I never implied or mentioned that they will only need to listen to positive feedback, that was an assumption youre making believing they will not find bad comments anywhere else other than ndd, which is false because if they really want to find the worst of the worst they have enough message/image boards to get all the info they want
>>
>>3786343
I never said that they had to exclusively look at NND to look for "bad" feedback, yes, you can find the same kind of feedback in other forums and places, but NND puts a number to it instead of having to look for random comments on twitter and social media.

Also the criticisms in NND are not isolated to that site, they're criticisms reflected on yaraon, twitter, 2ch, etc., so it may still be an useful tool to gauge the reactions, even if not to the same extent it was 10 years ago. What I'm saying is, they will/can use NND, but as part of their market research, I never claimed it would be their sole source.
>>
>>3786340
Regarding Natsumi, imo they as a group should've at least tried to confront her (not violently) instead of blindly following Kanon's hunch.
They owe Sumire that much at least.
And Sumire (and Blue) literally have proof that she's profiting over them.
>>
>>3786333
your post only reminded of how much I hated those episodes, you also forgot to mention ren who is also supposed to be smart and sensitive about money and yet she did fuck nothing, even shiki that at by that time wasnt part of the group yet she knew something was fishy about natsumi , writing wise I would put those 2 chs at they very top of the worst episodes ever in the love live history, at this point I think they are worse than the dog episode

as for the kanon thing, I dont even what to think about her anymore, she behaves really weird and the only justification and I can find is that she will do anything that the plot demands it

she needs to be saint with the 1st years, gotcha
she needs to be retarded just to justify bullshit, gotcha

>>3786321
true
don't let Juuki Hanada write anything Niji-related

The problem is that they don't know how to interact with the first years, including Natsumi, so they tend to overprotect them like what they did in the latest episode, just teenagers being teenagers I guess.

>>3786056
If you buy the SumiKeke relationship, then the episode works for you. I do not buy the SumiKeke relationship. That said, at least something HAPPENED in this episode. That's an improvement from whatever the episode before was.
>>
I finally watched the "sumikeke" episode yesterday and it was stupid.

the first half full of silly exaggerations and nonsense, in addition to using the "shonen" method of a new villain defeating the previous one to show that the new one is stronger, although here the problem is that sunypa were never good rivals and the new girl it is too exaggerated.

the second half was the cheap melodrama train, full of "dramatic music" and of course the cheesiest performances I've ever seen in my life, Keke's statements to sumire at the end were so artificial and incoherent, Keke narrated a relationship that never they had in S2 (maybe S1) and all the crap against Sumire made no sense, when Chisato was the one who gave shit to the first year girls.

if you're happy with this episode, you've got problems, but that's been the problem with the stupid main line of the franchise, as long as there's complacency/fanservice, nothing else matters.
>>
There's just something very wrong about Superstar S2. It's almost like it's cursed.

When the news of the new characters came, I predicted that they'll abandon any development of the existing 2nd years in favor of the new 1st years.
But what actually happened is that they somehow made all the 2nd years (except Sumire) so much worse and abandoned the 1st years completely after their respective intro episodes.

I know that it's a bad idea to air this right after Niji S2 because seeing how S1 went there's no way they could ever match the insane attention to detail and love that that the Niji team put into the anime.
People will obviously point that out and make comparisons. And they did.
But Superstar S2 is so much worse than even S1 in almost every single possible way.
The story is fucked. The characters are (as I said above) in shambles.
The art/animation suffered from the rushed production alongside other production issues (delays, the Hokkaido lodge controversy).
The songs all suck for some reason. Even the soundtrack sounds off.

It's not just the worst Love Live season. I honestly think that it's one of the worst anime I've ever watched.
What the fuck is going on?

>What the fuck is going on?
The reason I mention the main line is because Superstar feels like an accumulation of factors, bad factors, little personality or characterization, meme characters, meme couples, bad fanservice, inconsistency, dumb fans, and the "we're popular and successful, then there is no need to make an effort, because the fans will buy everything we do"

something similar that has even affected the MCU and Star wars, franchises that could not fail, failed miserably.

the camping site got mad with Love Live staff for using their lodge as the setting for episode 6? and Love Live staff had to release a statement that otakus on pilgrimage wouldn't be welcome at the lodge.

so the camping site dont like money? besides its not like they would need to do collabs just tell the otakus to behave like civilized human beans. I thought the camping suite were suing them for using their bsns without their consent, also I suppose theyre fine financially wise because otherwise they are basically saying bye bye to good shekels

it's a place for rich people that don't like smelly otakus there, they already have enough money with their usual clientele. Think of something like the Ritz Carlton hotel. They have an image that they want to uphold
>just tell otaku to behave like civilized human beings
You know very well that they wouldn't, but even if they did the owners still wouldn't want them anywhere near.

The "using without consent" thing was what happened with Cafe Casa.

Regarding the lodge place, IIRC the place's quite small so even if they want to accommodate the otakus they can't.

I think that this is how it went.
1. The staff made the scenes using the lodge as a reference
2. They asked the lodge for permission
3. The lodge said no, we can't handle this many people
4. The staff said okay we won't use the lodge as a reference
5. They don't have time to redraw everything so they did a sneaky and just changed the exterior a bit
6. The episode aired
7. The otakus found out about the lodge because it's still recognizable
8. The otakus came in droves
9. The place said please don't come the staff promised that they won't use this place as a reference
10. Controversy
11. Official Love Live twitter account said no we didn't use this as a reference, please don't go

They also used it without consent in this case too.
The fact that it happened twice with the same anime team is kinda dumb.

KLab is officially ruled out as the dev for SIF 2.
https://ss-agent.jp/job/69107
>Colorful Palette Co., Ltd [Development of a new smartphone game using a super-large IP] Job offer information for illustrator
>Other positions opened for the "new smartphone game using super-large IP"
>3D Background Modeler
>3D Animator
>3D Character Modeler
>Lead Planner
>Localization Project Manager (English)
>Localizer/Translator (English)
>Art Director
Seems to suggest that Colorful Palette could be the dev for SIF 2 but nothing is confirmed.

Even though KLab said they left SIFAS on their own accord, not being involved in SIF 2 feels very much like a punishment for everything that unfolded with SIFAS. Mynet, to their credit, has done a better job at listening to feedback from SIFAS players and all the recent quality of life updates have been great. (Game has also been very generous with free pulls and campaigns). It's good to see Bushiroad is doing everything it can to improve the mobile games, even if it will be sad to see the original SIF go.
