Hello! I'm Reo or Riolu however, you prefer to call me~
I'm 22, and my other interests beside Love Live and [email protected]: Fish Island: Fishing Paradise; Girlfriend Kari, Granblue Fantasy, Princess Connect: Re: Dive; Sdorica, Moe Girl Cafe 2, Kantai Collection; Visual Novels, etc.
My best girls are: Nico, You, Kasumi, Honoka, Maki, Ruby, Shizuka.
It's really nice to meet you!
Now how did it began?
I saw the original anime series from 6 years ago.
I saw the anime thinking "Oh i wonder this will turn out."
and it blew my mind away.
It had amazing music, and powerful friendship to get back on track if one fails.
The Nico Nico Nii quote which from Nico said; stole my heart.
I played the original School Idol festival game for 4 years, I swapped from EN server to JP server, the time too, I didn't want to get behind D:
I grew to love other characters other than Nico & You through out the game.
However, there was a time where i got burnt out and ragequitted from serious game crashes and the game freezes mid-way of the song.
So that point on, i quit about a year ahaha..
In other words, Love Live was my gate-way to open my doors to The [email protected] as well!
I played Deresute and MLTD in my own time.
Now, ALL STARS was here, and it is interesting!
I still have to navigate the game to get through everything but all is great!
Kasumi sounded like an "kawaii boku" aura i gotten from Sachiko Koshimizu, but the only differences are the tricks she do all fail lel.
hey there everybody, my name is marz, i'm also nozomified on SIT, and i'm 21 years old from southern california. my best girls are nozomi tojo (my teenage gay awakening and currently my #1 daughter), ruby kurosawa (would DIE for her smile), chika takami, mari ohara, and leah kazuno (in no particular order).
my idol story goes as follows;
6 years ago, i was a sophomore in high school, and i was having the worst year of my life. i'll spare the details here but between deaths in the family, major relocation, living in a homophobic and abusive home, and several emergency room trips, everything felt like it was falling apart around me. i'm not gonna go ahead and say that love live saved my life, but when i downloaded it on a whim, it became some dumb little routine that may just have played a part in me being here today. when you're depressed, having a routine to look forward to every day that isn't something like school or work can make the worst days a little more bearable. and that's what SIF did for me. just the act of logging in every day and playing some cute but generic jpop songs felt like such a relief. i've always loved rhythm games and this was an easy way to take them wherever i wanted.
my first UR was also nozomi's, her "fruits of summer" UR (paired with nico, also the first UR pair in the game). my dumb self back then had no idea that cards with backgrounds were so powerful, so i'm sure my main team was 9 off-color Ns because of course it was. i had no real interest in getting better, or even keeping the game, and i'm sure most of my pulls were solos back then too. when i started reading the story, i figured the anime would have something more substantial, and it did. it had more music, more animation, and more heart in its story than i expected. looking back on it now, muse's story is actually pretty melodramatic and objectively not very compelling, but something made me stay. i liked the purple one, who was mysterious and unpredictable and seemed to always be there when she was needed, even if nobody knew. something about a girl being so protective and caring for people who didn't understand anything yet was really striking, and i realized i already had a couple of her cards in the game. i put them on my teams, read her story, and fell so head over heels for a darn anime girl (right in the middle of Baby's First Lesbian Crisis, at that). as i've grown older, of course that feeling has faded, but my love for her has grown in so many different ways. i owe so much to her i can't even put it into proper words here, but if any of you guys know even just a little bit of what i'm talking about, i'm sure you understand just fine.
and then there was aqours. where do i begin on how this group changed my life? i first discovered them on the love live wikia, wondering to myself "wtf is sunshine??" i knew they'd be replacing my beloved muse, and i wrote them off as a cash grab. i wish i could take all that back, because i found 11 stories that resonated with me in so many ways. i particularly identified with chika--who i regrettably perceived as a honoka clone--when i found out about her insecurities with being painfully normal and "wasting" her youth. at this point, i'd already graduated high school and wasted all my own youth, but it was with that sadness that i really reflected on my own self and chika's ambitions.
i wanted to be like her and live up to her, in other ways. i wanted to hone my own arts and find myself, even though at the time graduating high school had left me insanely depressed at the realization that i had no special talents or interests to pursue. chika gave me that push to find people like myself, who turned their passions for niche things into reality. to my sister, who was trying to get back into cosplay and found my interest in love live inspirational. to my newest friend group, who all had such a variety of interests and talents that i wanted to try them all. to my girlfriend, who i met at a happy party train tour delayed viewing and who loves idols as much as i do. it's absolutely insane, the influence that this franchise has had on me. i always wonder where i'd be right now, what and how i'd be doing if love live didn't take up so much of my headspace. i save money to go to conventions to buy merch, i anticipate stateside aqours concerts a year in advance so i know i can see them live, i definitely put thousands of dollars into gacha and merch at this point, and part of me wants to be ashamed, but i'm also kinda proud.
i also wonder where i'll be in six years. will this series still exist, and if so will it STILL find new ways to capture my attention and make me love the franchise even more? even if it doesn't, i don't think i'll ever forget what love live did for me, and that's a lot to say about an anime girl tap tap game, but it really is a powerful thing; to find something you love so dearly that it keeps you alive, helps you meet people you'll never forget, and brings you closer to your friends and family.
so what am i doing now? well, i was so inspired by love live that i ended up watching a bunch of other idol series!! it's definitely one of my main sources of entertainment now, and i've found an excellent way to provide an outlet for my creativity; i make idol OCs! i'd love to post more about them here some time, because i'm really proud of their story and the world i made.
i know this has been a really long activity, but if you read my entire story, thank you. i'm sure this must have resonated with somebody out there, and i may regret this cheesy message somewhere down the line, but i have a lot of love tied to SIF and i hope it stays that way for years to come <3
Hello my name is Hamachi Kuro, and I'm a learning artist .. im studying in college right now ..and I live in Malaysia. My first sight on the Love Live franchise is when I felt like a need of change of pace when I watch animes in 2017.. so I did search for LoveLive mostly for how well known Nico Yazawa is.. and I immediately hooked up to these girls especially Honoka Kousaka who always optimist to pursue her dreams... I treated all groups equally and all of them are shining in their own respective ways~
I Stan on Honoka, Kasumi and Riko
Nice to meet you fellow LoveLivers! I might as well post my arts here.. Tee hee
Yo everyone! I'm Kyuuten and I've been following the Love Live! series since 2015.
I saw some LL content in 2014 since, as an osu! (non serious) player, I saw everyone with these cute girls as avatars and in their userpages - though I wasn't really interested. Then in summer 2015, thanks to my (ex) best friend, I decided to give LL! a shot and I don't regret it!
My best girl in the beginning was Honoka (who still stands 3rd in my u's ranking) but then I ended up loving Eli and Umi too. My Aqours' best girl is Mari along with Ruby and You, meanwhile for Nijigaku girls I absolutely love Kanata, Emma, Shizuku and Setsuna! But in general, I like all the girls. They're really important to me!
I hope this didn't sound too basic and I hope this community continues to grow strong. See you around!! ♥
Hiya! I’m PopDaze, better known as pop or poppy, I’m a card editor and I’ve been in the love live community for some years now, and the way I got into it was through my sister. She used to watch it, and one day I had asked her what it was. She told me it an anime called Love Live, but I didn’t really know what that was. I looked it up and started to watch the first episode. I loved it immediately with the cute style and interesting story. After about a week, I finished the first two seasons. My initial best girl was Nico, but after a while, it shifted to Maki, who’s still my best girl today 💞. When I found out about Aqours, I immediately started to watch it. At first, I loved Mari and Yoshiko, and then Dia, and now You. Then I started to go deeper into the fandom and made card edits and oh god, my first edits were terrible. Now, I’ve improved a lot and made so many friends along the way, and I’m so grateful for everything Love Live has done for me. Thanks for reading 💞💕💖
Hi guys! I’m @turquoisypink on ig. I only got into Love Live in the midsummer, but I love it! My best girls are Honk, Nozomi, Mari, Dia and Hanamaru, but I love them all :3 no special story here, I just heard about it through Cons and wanted to give it a try! My biggest ever cosplay was from this - Angel Mari, and I’m gonna upload some of my photos of her later~ can’t wait to get to know you all!
Hello everyone! I'm Silvia (Simoga23 on Twitter), and I'm a Love Live Spanish fan since 2017. My favourite girls are Kotori, Yohanne and Kanata, but let me explain my story:
Before watching the anime, I started playing the game (in 2015) because there were cute anime girls and cool music, but that was it.
After two years without playing it, I decided to download it again, and furthermore, decided to watch the anime (recommended by my cousin, who decided to watch it after I introduced her to the game). And even nowadays I can't stop regretting that I didn't watch it sooner, because these girls are EVERYTHING to me now.
They help me when I'm in a bad mood and encourage me to achieve my dreams, and I can't be more grateful about it. I really love these 27 girls who make my life brighter everyday.
And remember, μ'sic forever!
How did I get into Love Live! and what does it mean to me?
I'm a 16 year old girl living in Scotland! I've been a fan of Love Live! for just under 2 years.
I got into Love Live! through my friends, who were huge fans of the anime and were pretty good at the game! I was at one of their houses and they made me listen to a huge compilation of Love Live! music, and I loved the style so I went home and watched the anime. I got into the game shortly afterwards, and grinded so I could do a few steps of Hanayo's birthday scout. (Ironically Hanayo is my worst girl, but due to association with a toxic person in my life rather than me disliking her character!)
Kotori was my favourite from the start. I loved her character design (I'm an artist if you couldn't tell!) and her soft and happy demeanour. I cosplayed Kotori a few months afterwards, and doing so helped me embrace my femininity and I now love wearing cute dresses!
Fast forward on maybe a year. I had a tainted view of Aqours as one of my friends was a hardcore µ's fan and hated anything to do with Aqours. I knew little about Sunshine but I knew that Ruby was my worst girl as I hated her signature catchphrase and how people would spam it during events on SIF. Despite this I took the plunge and watched Sunshine as I wanted to see why my friend hated it so much.
My eyes were opened to the world of Aqours and Ruby quickly became my best girl. Sunshine came at a good time for me, as around the time I was watching Sunshine, my older sister was nearing the end of high school. Her and I are incredibly close, so Ruby and Dia's relationship always resonated with me. But when I watched the episode where Ruby shows her fears about Dia leaving school, it was like watching myself on a screen. Ruby had all the same fears that I had, and it was incredibly comforting to watch her overcome those fears. I wanted to prove to my big sister that I could look after myself, just like Dia did. At this point Ruby overtook Kotori as my best girl. I see a lot of myself in her.
This year I took my first ever exams. I'm a very anxious person so this was terrifying to me, as I'm sure it is for many others. I had to deal with a death in my family during my exams, but Love Live! was always there for me. On the day of my results, I listed to Step! ZERO to ONE, to remind myself that whatever happened that day, there was always hope, and I would move forward.
Ruby is now my go to cosplay (with my big sister as Dia of course <3) and I love the Love Live! community within Scotland! Everyone is so kind!
Sorry if this was too long! Please hmu if you want to be friends, I love meeting people in the Love Live! Community!
Hi everyone! I'm Vert and I have been a Love Live fan since 2015. My best girls are Nico, Hanayo, Mari, Yohane and Rina. I really like drawing and cosplaying a lot, and I'm part of a Love Live dance group named AiRis (airisdolls on Instagram, I would really appreciate it if you check out our account ♥). And that's all for now, thanks for reading! ♥♥♥
Hello! It's really good to be here! My name is Callum, I'm from the UK and I've been into Love Live for about a year and a half now since March 2018.
I originally engaged with Love Live by making fun of it with my sister, who hated it(and still does). Naturally this lead me to find Love Live memes, and these got me to watch both seasons of SIF and Sunshine, even if it was just an ironic watch at first. In March 2018 I downloaded SIF out of curiosity and genuinely enjoyed it. I haven't been the same since! My sister got me a Nico figurine as a joke for my birthday this year, but unbeknownst to her I absolutely treasure it. (I don't know how she's going to react if she ever finds out)
I don't hate any of the characters, but my favourites are Umi and Yoshiko. I admire Umi's work ethic, politeness and singing voice, and I took up Archery because of her! I admire Yoshiko's journey of finding people she feels comfortable being herself around, because it's what I want to do in regards to my autism. I'm leaning towards Ai, Setsuna or Karin for the Niji girls, but I won't know for sure until All Stars gets an English release.
I'm looking forward to taking part in this new community. I hope everyone has a good day!
