It all started in July 2018, last year. It was about 10:00 pm at night and I wanted something, anything, to do.
I decided to go on an app I use to watch anime, but nothing really stood out to me at the time.
As I was scrolling through animes, an anime that was recommended to me caught my eye.
Love Live! School Idol Project!!
At first, I didn’t really want to watch it, after all I only thought the anime was about Nico, because I only have seen “Nico Nico Nii” once or twice on Youtube and that’s it.
I decided to watch it, maybe to make fun of it, but the first thing that surprised me was, the anime was, in fact, not about Nico.
I was intrigued.
I soon found myself laughing and enjoying watching Love Live, and that’s when I realized, “Hey, I actually really like this show!”
I watched both seasons of Love Live! School Idol Project!!, and while I was reluctant to watch Sunshine, I wanted to see more Love Live, so I decided to watch Sunshine as well.
Mari stole my heart.
Mari was my best girl for almost an entire year, until recently when I found even more love I had for Hanayo.
I found out there was a game a month later, and I’m still playing SIF every day.
When the Nijigaku song previews came out, my original best girl was Shizuku, then Ai, and now Rina! It’s actually still really hard to place my Nijigaku ranking though, since I love them all dearly.
I got my first Love Live merch last Christmas and it was a beautiful Mari figure. While that’s the only merch I have right now, I have a lot of merch I want, and will hopefully get!
I thought that my Love Live hype would die down, but it still hasn’t and it’s been over a year.
I guess I’ll stay in the Love Live fandom for awhile~
