Interesting to see that snow falling this episode with the cold weather.

I liked this episode with the chill mood and usual humor.
Glad to see Aqours keeping it together after their recent performances. Ruby got some interesting moments imo and I like how close she is with Dia.

Those tears ;_;

Fantastic episode again, I wanted this episode to be so much longer, glad to see it's continuing next week.

Chika and her Mikan accessories are absolute gold. XD
Hanamaru with them round layers. xD
I love how You was doing the salute when Hanamaru fell over the girls. XD

We finally get to see Saint Snow again, I was expecting we'd get to see them perform, too bad we couldn't. I totally did not expect Saint Snow to fail the qualifiers though. :o

I really liked how they decided to draw parallel with Leah and Sarah's relationship to Ruby and Dia. I loved how Ruby was able to understand what Leah was going through and seeing her speak up at the restaurant that Leah would just be lonely without her sister was a really sweet but embarrassing thing to say especially with Dia right next to her.

I absolutely adore how close the Kurosawa sisters are, The Dia and Ruby moments this episode were so sweet. Loved it when Dia told Ruby she was really proud of her. The whole pier scene was really emotional. The sisterly bonds are simply too strong for me. <3

The final scene with Ruby and Leah arguing about their sisters was funny. xD
The final shot with the tree, the lights along with Ruby and Leah was great.

Somehow I feel the lyrics of the ED especially the beginning really resonate with the context of this episode. Feels like something Dia would tell Ruby.
Also, Dia Ruby ED shot. <3

Siblings are great (I have one), but I'm bothered by the fact that they didn't SHOW the performance yet again. Otherwise I'm surprised that they're actually going to continue this episode's plot thread and AWAKEN THE POWER!

Forced comedy aside this episode was really sweet, I just wish Ruby would stop squealing all the time for no good reason. And now I really want to hear that Snow White song, the intro was so hype, but not showing their performance when they're going to get two episodes was a kick in the nuts. I know they failed, but it was still a dick move to not show them performing.

I thought this will be a Hanamaru diet episode, thank god it's not it. I thought Saint Snow school is in UTX?? By the way totally did not expect for them to failed their performance. I'm glad Saint Snow got a lot of screen time, but I'm pissed they didn't show their performance. Even if they failed, should've show it to us, I want to hear the new song god damn it. And there's still more of Saint Snow on the next episode, A-RISE never even got this treatment.. I really like Sarah, I don't know why. Seeing Ruby crying with her usual pigii and arguing with Leah who's the best onee-san is cute as well. Seems Ruby and Leah will be singing together can't wait. There's some a little bit of YohaRiko and some MariKanan moments XD.

Nice episode.

Love Chika with his mask... Some funny moments too. But They are not cold by wearing a skirt when it is snowing? Like in real life, I'm sure I can't support that.

Ruby was so cute, I'm glad the episode was focus on her. Really love the DiaRuby scene *-* Was expecting her to sing the ending in solo or with Dia but look like it is first year. Like most of you, that's sad they didn't show the performance of Saint Snow...

I had a really bad feeling about this saint snow when Ruby saw Leah tremble, it's already end up in failure so skip performance will save up some time.
It's was a bit drama but it was kind of sweet.

Ruby and Leah thinking to make a song for they big sisters together. / Getting closer and so on.

So after building them up for so long, they get rid of the only real competition for Aqours in the entire show... So the rest of the season will be nothing but Aqours steamrolling through Love Live with a bunch of drama about them graduating copied from the original show.

You're not happy with the fact that Saint Snow is actually getting some real emotional development, unlike A-Rise where they were reduced into the background and just became cardboard cut-outs used as a goal for u's to achieve? At the very least we're getting some kind of drama with them!

Though I can see why you're disappointed with no actual Saint Snow song, hopefully we get to see some king of glimpse of it next episode.

Saint Snow as idols is over. Now, we are going to see Saint Snow outside the school idol universe. There's gonna be some "emotional development" like you say, but no more cool Saint Snow like we were waiting for a very long time. Damn it, it took 8 episodes to see Saint Snow on scene and when we finally get to see them, the hype was real ! The intro of the song was leading into something freaking amazing but all of this... for nothing. Thanks for trolling us, assholes.

Nice episode.

Hokkaido looks great covered in Snow. LOL Hanamaru wearing so many layers of clothes.
Poor Saint Snow. Sad they didn't make it to the next round.

Nice of Ruby to cheer up Leah.

I dunno, I didn't like this episode much. Sure, the story behind Saints Snow failure was interesting but also kinda generic and forced (not to mention I was hype up to see their performance again and they didn't even animate it). Right, this applies to μ`s too but doing this several times in a row just feels pretty stale. They are seeing the end of the school as the end of their life which is kinda dumb and shortsighted approach to their lives. Shouldn't they emphasize that friendship is worth more than this? Surely they would be able to sing together even after that, right? (times like these I can actually appreciate shows like Wake Up, Girls that maybe aren't perfect but deals with those things a lot better).

Heck, I would actually liked if this was the hint to the fact that Aqours continue singing even after the school and Love Live ends... Cause Love Live isn't really everything there is in the world, right? But if this isn't the true in the end then this episode actually served no story purpose. And I'm not mentioning the fact that they entered their inn by pure chance... surely that wouldn't happen if not forced by the plot.

Also, Ruby was playing Cpt. Obvious in the end, not really telling her anything new rather then empty naive phrases (in the light of this it really shows how immature and dumb she is for her age compared to other girls..) But Ruby actually isn't anything more outside of her archetype of 'cute little thingie' so why do I even care, hm?

Other than that, Hanamaru's gluttony is getting her annoying more and more, it just always feels like comedy element inserted where it shouldn't be.

All-in-all, not a best episode, actually one of the worst in this series. Maybe that's just me because I still can't see any worth in Ruby 'archetypical' character - she never overcome her shadow unline other characters. But I also think that if they wanted emphasize failure here, they would do a lot better job if they let them fail some minor event instead, that would serve better as warning for them (and for viewers too) and it would also keep things more personal. The was it was with Saint Snow this episode, it just felt as an afterthought.

Leah: At least you can sing, what's your name!
Chika: Who I am doesn't matter, what matters is our dance formation.

Chika: No one cared who I was until I became a school idol.
Leah: If I took off that mask would you lose.
Chika: No, but it would be extremely painful.
Leah: You're a big idol.
Chika: for you.

Leah: Well, you got yourself caught. What's the next part of your master plan!
Chika: Making you fall... with no chance of winning!

Liked how they gave Ruby and Saint Snow character development. It was nice to see how one affected the other and vice versa.

Also nice to see that the focus was on siblings(lol I can somehow relate)

And as others have said, bad move not to include Saint Snow's performance. But, would you still complain considering that song was different from the one shown in an earlier episode? THEY MADE ANOTHER SONG FOR SAINT SNOW

Lastly, another foreshadowing to the inevitable end to Aqours. Though, this is one of the things that makes SS greater than the original SIP. The slow build-up makes it so much better than the sudden, K-On! copy-paste graduation plot in μ's

This episode is so focus on drama just like the previous ones, but at least it's not that 'drama'. Haha. Poor Saint Snow didn't make it to the final round. Poor Leah and Sarah. Glad Ruby is there to cheer Leah up and they decided to dedicate a performance for their big sisters. Aww.

I love this photo, btw. They're all so cute. :3



Zura is the star of this episode. Lmao. Chika's mask, though. Hahaha. So cute.

I like the Ruby/Saint Snow focus, both Leah and Ruby feeling down about it being the last Love Live with their big sisters. But in the end Ruby cheering her up. Found it funny when Ruby was like no my sister is better xD

Well generally the ED does mix well with the overall theme of the series.
Though for this particular episode,

Try and be brave, I know it's scary,
It's not like I was able to do it from the start, either
I messed up a lot,
I was really frustrated,
But that gave me strength, so don't give up


felt like something Dia would say to motivate Ruby since she can be pretty timid. xD

('o') really nice especially if you put it that way, with best girl Dia(Mari) saying something like that to Ruby

as for me, its:

But dreams won't fade
Dreams won't fade


that part was,for me, emotional with the way they sang it. And the scene in ep7 when the other Uranohoshi students gave them their support was where I think it was meant for.

so, if the ED was for the series, I guess to the OP was for the build-up of everything that has happened so far?

Nice siscon episode, very heartwarming especially at the end. If only that fatass would stop stuffing herself every fucking second she's on screen. Yoshiko falling on her butt was a cute moment.

I didn't expect Saint Snow to lose that way as I thought they were Aqour's rival and they will meet in the final round. Now that they're eliminated, I wonder if another "rival" will appear in the final round?

I like the conversation between Dia and Ruby. It was a heartwarming scene between two sisters.

I enjoyed the scene between Ruby and Leah. Little sisters' talk!
Leah smiling like that was a rare but great sight.



I look forward to see how Saint Snow developed after this loss in the next episode. :)
