Hi, my name’s James but online I normally go by my handle Hammy45 or just Hammy. I’m a male, He/Him, 27, from regional NSW in Australia. I’m a reserved person and not particularly outgoing but make no mistake, I love this franchise. My top 3 characters for each group in order are:
As for favourite songs, it’s a bit more difficult as there are so many good ones but I’ll just list a few for each group:
μ’s: Yume no Tobira; Bokutachi no Hitotsu no Hikari; Natsu, Owaranai de; Arifureta Kanashimi no Hate
Aqours: Kokoro Magic A to Z (I know it’s not released yet but dammit it’s a good song); Yozora wa Nandemo Shitteru no?; WONDERFUL STORIES; WHITE FIRST LOVE
Nijigasaki: CHASE; Yume e no Ippo; Anata no Risou no Heroine; Meccha Going!!
Now the story part. I think this is the first time I’ve told my full story anywhere. I got into Love Live around 2014. I was skimming through Crunchyroll for something to watch and I came across a show called “Love Live! School Idol Project” (I think the second season had just ended at this point). As soon as the OP started, I was taken aback. I had never seen anything quite like it, I even watched Glee back in the day. By the end of the third episode with 2nd years only START:DASH!!, I was completely sold on the show; costumes, music and everything. I think I rewatched both seasons multiple times, played SIF a fair bit and even went out of my way to see the movie when a screening came to Sydney. After the movie, I started to waver on the franchise and eventually succumbed to the “This show isn’t made for you” feeling I was getting and made a decision to give up on it.
Around Aqours second season I saw LL pop up in my Twitter feed and realised my love for this franchise and it’s characters never disappeared. I started to marathon everything again and caught up around Awaken the Power. I had taken a particular liking to Ruby ever since the first Aqours episode, so this was a particularly special episode for me. I absolutely adored the growth that she had achieved in that time and the heartwarming relationship she and Dia had with each other.
Ever since then, I’ve tried to keep up on almost everything the franchise has to offer, including the introduction of the Nijigasaki girls. I’m currently playing EN SIF (currently rank 193), JP All Stars and I’ll play EN All Stars when it gets released (I still don’t know if I’ll keep playing JP when it happens yet). This has literally taken me hours to write and several rereads so if you’ve made it this far, I want to thank you so much for reading this.
Hi there! My name is Juno, I’m 21, and I’m from New York. I’ve been into Love Live since I watched the anime back in 2015 and was hooked immediately. I started playing SIF around then, and later branched out to other Bushiroad franchises (BanG Dream, Revue Starlight, etc). My favorite music genre is vaporwave and its subgenres and my favorite album is Infinity Frequencies’ Computer Afterlife. I have had a history of being a whale for cards I like, but I’ve gotten my spending under control. I’m looking forward to meeting you all!
Hi everyone! My name is Azeku, and I am so excited for the opening of idol.st! I am a huge Love Live fan, and have been playing Sukusuta a lot for the last couple weeks. I hope we can all get along! よろしく！

I hope to have a great time and make nice friends one here!!
Heylo! Im Karinmaki (or Aka, whichever works!)
Im a young furry artist who likes Love Live and many other franchises!
I like doing character impressions and I'm a proud neso mom ;w;
I got into love live when i was in late 3rd grade, i played the game when only muse was in it.
I later found out in early 4th that they had an anime, and i tried watching it. I truely enjoyed it. I then found out about Aqours, and i fell in LOVE with them. I was part of the game and anime franchise until i found out about the seiyuu in mid-5th grade. I loved Suwa, SOSO MUCH-
Aqours and Muse has done so much for me and im happy SIFAS is out now. G'day, Minna!
dear whoever translated the first chapter of all stars' story and the current event story: you are god. thank you for your services.
ayumu really is your childhood friend in the game and she cares so much for you i think it's the cutest thing ever ajskdbskb
I got into Love Live a little over three years ago in August of 2016. Me being the middle school weeb I was wanted a new anime game to play, and I came across SIF in the App Store! I had no idea what it was about, but I did recognize Nico because of her Nico Nico Ni. So I dowloaded it and I’ve been a fan since.
I got SIF a month before the huge Aqours update. So this was my time to know about Muse and bond with them. I ended up watching School Idol Project and Rin became my best girl along with Nozomi and Umi (Rin and Umi are still my best girls to this day). Rin and Umi mean a lot to me because I can relate to them a lot. I tend to be very hesitant and nervous like Umi, but once I feel comfortable, I become a spark of energy like Rin! I also think they have the best voices in the group, and I think Umi is the prettiest girl ever!
Before the Aqours update some of the songs were included in the B-Sides, one of them being Koi Ni Naritai Aquarium. I had no idea who they were, but knowing my interest in sea animals and aquariums, I was immediately interested. Koi Ni was the first expert song I ever full comboed. Too bad it was in an event! After playing SIF with Aqours I watched Sunshine, and You, Ruby, and Chika became my best girls, and man I love them way too much. Ruby was my first ever best girl, but it slowly became You. As of now they’re tied, but HHHHH they’re so amazing! CYaRon and Aqours in general have made me feel so comfortable and confident. They make me feel safe. They taught me that I can be me, and being me will be the best thing for me.
Love Live has helped me a lot, especially now. These girls, specifically Aqours, have helped me a lot in my freshman year of high school and now they’re helping me stay determined in my sophomore year. They’re the reason why I have so much energy and positivity. They’ve helped me become who I am today. I’m so grateful to come across this series. I don’t know what I would do without them.
Okay, not sure if anyone else has gone in-depth about this, but earlier today I decided to try and figure out how exactly the level cap for bond points/kizuna works. I think I have a better understanding of it now, so I've decided to share what I've learned with everyone! The information may not be exactly 100% accurate (Especially since math isn't necessarily my forte), so I'd appreciate corrections!
