LoveLive! has always been a franchise! The anime almost came last! I guess the games are coming last but really it is music discs, concerts, anime, novels, manga, fanbooks, picture books, games, apps, dakimakura, everything!

Nice to see Vita getting some good titles and the TV box too! Lots of anime tie ins.

You mean that Vita game (School Idol Paradise) or that iOS/Android game (School Idol Festival)?

2014 May and to get all the figures of Muse you need to buy 3 games LOL (Printemps, Bibis and Lily White)

Yeah, this seems like a separate thing from the anime, unlike in Idolm@ster case where they bundled the two in the BDs. The game is out at the same time the anime airs so it would be an attempt to capture the adoring watchers then and there, without the need to wait for a couple months later when the BDs are out. Doing this will also saves on advertising for the game. Clever businessmen, these people :D

Moreover, goodies for the game would very likely be included in the BDs releases. I think we should upgrade Love Live from a series to a franchise because that's what it is becoming. It's fitting when you think about Sunrise's other franchise: Gundam

The visuals are pretty good, there needs to be a PS Vita TV bundle for this game, they'd sell that Ouya-esque thing in seconds.

Good lord why would people use this assholes blog as a source for anything. He wears his studio biases so thoroughly on his sleeves and tries to pass himself off as a by standing commentator while subtly influencing the tone of how everything is to be received by his readership based on his own BS criteria. A shining example of everything that is terrible about anime blogs.

With these pics in the book, I expect to see Maki version of Love Live School Idol Diary to feature prominently in next week LN & Anime-Related Books bestseller list:

As for what Oricon will call it, what are they going to call the Girls Und Panzer fandisc that comes out next month? Similar boat I would think but months after the main series discs came out, not one month after like here.
The two are far from the same. Why? Love Live fandisc has anime but GirlPan fandisc does not. The latter only has seiyuu event, so I do not think it will be categorized as anime BD/DVD. The case for the Love Live *has* anime, even though it is just digest of the 1st season.

Bluray disc 8 announced for season 1, fandisc coming on Christmas Day!
http://www.lovelive-anime.jp/bd.html#bd08
Won't call it disc 8 and it is officially a fan disc separated from the volume count of the TV series.

Also I wonder whether it will be listed in the anime category by Oricon as it has an anime disc too (though just a digest of first season) and a bunch of other stuff like seiyuu footage, commentaries and booklet.
I found it funny that their own link has an anchor tag #bd08 so their webmaster at least is calling it BD8 LOL

As for what Oricon will call it, what are they going to call the Girls Und Panzer fandisc that comes out next month? Similar boat I would think but months after the main series discs came out, not one month after like here.

Anyways, if it has concert footage and a new single then they can bring out 10 fandiscs and I will buy them all!

Just got Printemps' Pure girls project today! Should have got it last week but it shipped late for some reason (I got other stuff last week but amazon split my order). Good stuff! Again I love the drama track "Onstage at the pool".

I still think Cutie Panther is my favorite out of the trio singles.
