The new Love Live has come as quite a pleasant surprise. There are definitely some changes and improvements here. For one thing, the artstyle is a bit different which at first I had mixed feelings for. However, it looks really clean and still feels like Love Live.

The story is also different with no callbacks to previous shows which already makes itself distinct. It isn’t the same school closure plot point we had twice before. Personally, I like this change as it shows that the series is willing to be innovative and doesn’t feel repetitive.

Arguably the biggest change is the CG which has improved drastically. Live read more

First time reviewing a Love live while it is airing, and I'm here to tell you how fun it is so far!

This series of love live so far has offered a different sort of take on the usual tale of getting to the big event, and without the idea of the School closing down. Which is something fresh to see for a Love live series. Following a group uqnie and interesting girls, as how they progress towards their goals, and facing troubles along the way, still as interesting as the previous series and sunshine.

The characters per usual have something about them, that makes them. Which read more

This was the surprise of the season for me. I gave the first Love Live a 5 - while I liked the idea of the franchise, the show itself was underwhelming. But Nijigasaki is a joy to watch. There is so much going on, I quickly got invested in a seasonal show that I initially had low expectations for (possibly because the character designs frankly look a bit generic).

The animation is the most impressive part. There is tons of character animation in the show, I haven’t seen a cute girls show with characters moving this much in a while. As someone who admittedly spends more read more

I really can't decide if I love this anime or don't like it.

Not talking about quality, though, it's awesome, but about preference. I mean... The girls are all really cute, but some stuff feels unnatural: the musics are awesome... it's just odd someone randomly dancing in the middle of a park. I do enjoy watching it, though... but at the same time I don't...

Dunno how to explain.

Nevertheless, it is indeed an anime worthy of the Love Live name. And it's so different from the first that it doesn't really falls into that gray spot that Sunshine fell, where it's basically repeating what was read more
