Here we are! Full season review for Love Live School Idol Project.

Honoka Kosaka is a girl who loves her school, Otonokizaka Academy. When the school is planned to be closed down due to a lack of applicants, Honoka becomes determined to save it. Learning that school idols are popular, Honoka and her friends start up a school idol group called U’s (pronounced muse) in order to attract new students. Once they successfully prevent Otonokizaka Academy from closing, the girls from U’s aim for higher grounds and participate in “Love Live”, the ultimate school idol competition featuring the best groups in the country.

So we’ve got ourselves a good anime here. This isn’t going to be like my other reviews where I describe the action of each episode. Instead I’ll be talking about the anime and the characters as a whole.

It’s a pretty good anime with a few flaws that are below. There’s a lot of feels moments like in the third episode when Honoka, Kotori, and Umi open to a empty room and the episode where Eri realizes she wants to join Muse but she feels they’ll never accept her after everything she’s done. It’s a good anime if you really like J-Pop and idols.

The Highlights

  • Lots of beautiful girls
  • Good start and strong plot
  • Each girl has a unique personality and few of them crossover and have the same traits

Downsides

  • Eri was kinda annoying at the beginning, constantly getting in the way of Muse but not really doing anything to say she wants to save the school.
  • The CGI in the idol scenes was a weird thing coming from normal animation but it’s not all that bad.

Let’s look at the girls.

All Love Live Songs

So that’s it for the Love Live School Idol Project Season One Full Season Review. Until work through my list of anime I just have to review ie. my favorites I’ll be doing them in order of this post.

Wait! Before I end here, there’s something that needs to be done with an anime like this, you need to say your favorite. Now my friends have a love for Maki but she isn’t my favorite. I love her but she’s not my favorite. She’s about 3 or 4 on my list.

1. Nozomi Toujou(She’s so cute, her cards, and her boob grabbing is so funny and she’s got the best body out of all the girls)
2. Umi Sonoda(Not during her serious moments but when she sings, she’s got some sexy ‘come hither’ eyes.)
3. Maki Nishikino(Sometimes you need to love the tsundere and Maki is tsundere done right!)
4. Eri Ayase(Yes I call her Eri even though everyone else says Eli. I like her more once she’s warmed up to the group.)
5. Hanayo Koizumi(I definitely relate more with Hanayo more than all of them because I’m an awkward geek and she’s really cute without her glasses.)

Not that fond of Nico…that’s right I said it! And I’ll say it again!

The next anime that I’ll review will be Date A Live Season 1.

Until then
Later Days.
