As someone who stumbled upon this series with zero previous knowledge of what Love Live! is the highest praise that I can give this show is that it convinced me to watch the parent story for it, and what more can you ask for from a series of simple shorts such as this?

*Nijiyon Animation provided an adorable display of the hilarious relationships the girls have together. Each episode captures a new perspective of the idols and brings the viewer closer to the characters. Most episodes felt heartwarming and are a beautiful glimpse on what the series is about.

*Overall the show is cute and enjoyable, ...

We can see here one of the reasons why Love Live fans are resistant whenever one of the generations expands their cast: when every character is forced to have an appearance and say their bit, every situation and line starts to ...
