So I'm in the episode 10 of Love Live, and what's up with all the Nico/Maki shipping? They LITERALLY have ZERO interaction in the series. L I T E R A L L Y. I can understand Eri/Nozomi, but what is the shipfag logic in Nico/Maki? It's crack as hell. Please explain this?
Also before someone tells me to fuck of to /u/ or tumblr, I won't because they would say they are gay just because and call me homophobic because I don't see it, so please explain this to me because I'm really confused, thanks.
Because it is true love.
1. MVs- Chocolates in 4th. Lewd hugging in the latest
2. Manga- Nico was Maki's first friend. They both dreamed of attending UTX
3. Anime- Second Season has a lot of Nico and Maki
4. Music- Zurui yo! Magnetic Today
Thank you, you saved me looking for the non-existent Nico/Maki in S2.
>2. Manga- Nico was Maki's first friend. They both dreamed of attending UTX
I can understand this, would be a reason of why people ship them together but if they do not interact much more aside from that in the manga I would still not understand why the shipping.
There is basically no interaction of them in the anime, just some pictures in the official art. This is enough for people to ship these two? Hell, it would make more sense to ship Umi with Eri. I do not understand this pairing, but thank you.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure I won't be able to enjoy doujins of them anymore, thanks for that, too.
Because you're a little fucking secondary faggot who has probably never touched the PVs but yet believes he knows all there is to know about the depths of Nico and Maki's love. Fuck off to tumblr or reddit you gay homophobic sack of shit.
Well OP there it is. Just try ignore it.
By the way, this guy is >>117130287 is a huge yurifag, don't expect anything serious from him
and this guy >>117130448 looks like he wants to start .
Just back away thread and argument from this while you still can. You don't have to go to /u/ or tumblr just don't pay much mind to these guys
This, lots of LLfags are delusional shippers who fantasize about fictional lesbian relationships. Lovelive exists to cater to its fanbase so they are more than happy to oblige.
Such is life when you're a pre-anime fan.
I knew the anime was going to cause an explosion of yuri fanart.
Never expected NozoEli and KotoUmi would become more popular then EliUmi or KotoHono.
Lay off OP.
At least he isn't asking where Natsuiro Egao de came from unlike a few clueless tossers.
It's more like what they do in the MVs.
Anime also launched HMHS MakiRin, HMHS HonoMaki and HMHS HonoNico.
From S1 Ep1
Also callback to MV1.
why do yurifags want to ship girls when they're just being normally friendly? is it because they just don't go out and interact with other people much and don't know how friendly girls interact?
Fuck off faggot, I bet you think it'd be more realistic if they had boyfriends and shit. Nobody wants you to shine your shitty normalfag wisdom on them here.
Personally I ship the girls because I think they would/do interact cutely together. I don't have any delusions of romance or anything like that unless it's something like Sakura Trick. For love live I like the "friendly girls interacting" like you said
The MV this gif is from is apparently a big factor for it, since the music videos were before the anime. And made them a popular thing before the anime started.
My Goggles are powerful.
So powerful it's causing me to see Yuri everywhere.
The only way I would accept boyfriends is if they genderbent their significant half.
Maki and her annoying, arrogant shouta boyfriend Nicomaru.
I'm exactly the same as you, I don't really care if there is romance or not between the girls
I just care that there is no boys so I can self-insert, so yes, bash me.If there is any I will support it, though, because I still like yuri.
This is pretty much why discussion of cute girls doing cute things is impossible on /a/, cause all the shipfaggots come out of the woodwork to spew their sexual fantasies.
I dream of Nico and Maki marrying and raising a lovely daughter who goes on to become a Second Generation Idol.
I'm so sorry. I really wish an anime girl would love me someday.
I'm really sorry, really. I'm not a bad person, I just like to imagine a girl liking me, that's all. If there is any canon pairing I will support it, also I won't really get mad if one of them gets a boyfriend, just die a little inside but I keep it to myself.
i too just want to watch girls being friendly and interact a lot because they're cute. so i don't really give a fuck on who to ship because their friendship alone is a thing of beauty.
>doesn't consider platonic and romantic love as cute
Face it, there's no place for you. Might as well kill yourself.
W-well, as the girl
friendactually. I do not self-insert in the characters, though, so I enjoy the POV shots.
>image dumps of girls making out, naked in bed and doing lewd stuff in general
Their cuteness comes from how the character acts in the show, not how I imagine them to be in my head.
Probably all the time.
Compare Upotte the Anime to Upotte the Manga.
Compare 2005 Idolmaster to A-1 Idolmaster
>I dream of Nico and Maki marrying and raising a lovely daughter who goes on to become a Second Generation Idol.
what I wouldn't give for something like that.
>tfw couldn't find image I wanted of Eri/Nozomi potential children.
So in other words you have no capacity for imagination and/or cannot separate headcanon from facts enough to allow yourself to enjoy some off-screen fantasies? I'm not saying you should go all out with imagining their fucking children or anything but shit sometimes fans have really good art but just rejecting it because it's made by fans is silly especially when the show acknowledges the will of their fans by putting them together to do cute shit like pic-related.
Sexual things can also be cute too.
Maki's only flaw is that she isn't Umi.
not the guy you replied to
Touche, but Umi's flaw is that she isn't Maki
I don't want to continue this anymore because I think you are a pretty cool guy
>I don't want to continue this anymore because I think you are a pretty cool guy
Red and blue are the best.
I have a theory that there is factory where Chihaya is being cloned.
Fanfiction tier shit would be shafting Idols into a sci-fi with giant robots and lightsabers.
Honestly Umi isn't anything like Chihaya, besides the hair color/eye color.
>implying crack exists in LL
I'm going to ship whatever I want and you can't stop me or force me to tumblr because there are no such things as crack in Love Live. From the NozoRin to the UmiMaki to the NicoTori. I'll ship them all anyway I want.
>lack of confidence
>almost identical personality being Chihaya a little bit more gloomy
Admit it, she's a Chihaya clone but that's not bad, Umi is unique in her own way, like, she does kyuudo and all, I like that.
85%+ of heterosexual males are into girl on girl, so chances are pretty good you're either a fujo or a sodomite.
If it isn't canon then its fan fiction. Nowhere did I say that you aren't allowed to enjoy whatever you want, nor did I say anything about dismissing good art because of its subject matter, but when any kind of thread related to the topic devolves into either shipping wars where people spew their fantasies or 'x is best'/'y is shit', it is equivalent to writing gay fanfics of twilight characters. 'acknowledging the will of the fans' is just a nice way of saying that they are just pandering, which is still different than fan fiction.
>prioritizing romanizations when the franchise canonically spells it Eli
>anything like Chihaya
I wasn't talking about that.
Come on guys, Umi isn't that flat.
She atleast has a bump.
>anything like Chihaya
Eh, I won't look like anything to anyone since I ship discreetly in my own head and don't force my ships on other people. The vocal shippers will always be more annoying than me, canon ships or not.
>I'm right, the franchise is wrong
>thinking anyone is actually retarded enough to not understand what you're saying in the proper context
It's okay my almost raibu-mate I understand what you mean
Chihaya has perflat 72
Umi has healthy 76, considering that she's athlete tier for being kyuudou and kendou.
Chihaya is jealous of big breasts. Umi isn't, and many people around her adore her figure.
>>I'm right, the franchise is wrong
Of course, they are Japs and know JACKSHIT about romanization. Eri is not a foreign name (since it's originally written with Kanji), the romanization they are using is wrong, if it actually was written with katakana I would understand why put the L in the romanization, but there is no L in Japanese, it's R.
Because there's no L.
There was literally no reason for them not to use Eri if her name was fucking Eri. You can say "wrong romanizaiton" but even the japanese are not that fucking retarded. It's not like there haven't been characters in the history of ever that had their name romanized into Eri.
>the franchise is so fucking retarded
>a company based in fucking nipland itself doesn't even know that there is no direct equivalent 'L' character in Japanese
>they definitely didn't deliberately have two different spellings for her name while keeping her ethnicity in mind
>romaji is the correct way to spell her name no matter how the very people that conceived her states officially how her name is supposed to be spelled with English letters
Yes yes, everybody is fucking retarded and you are the only source we can rely on.
That's my point. There is nothing wrong with writing her name as Eri.
Eri is Eri, they pronounce it Eri even though they could go for Eli because Japs do can pronounce the L. The only reason they replaced the R with the L is to make her name seem foreign.
But then it's fucking Eli you sperglord.
Don't even go there.
Anon, anon please.
Her name is Eli. They outright put "Eli" on every merchandise. They WANT it to be "Eli". The ONLY REASON why it's "Eri" in any way is because they can't say Eli. It's that simple. Stop being a faggot.
No they fucking don't. They refer to her as エリ, 繪里. It's not the fucking same no matter how much you believe it to be.
Tell me how many actual nip fanart have "Eri" as a tag on pixiv if it's so fucking common.
Good, the faggots left.
in terms of character, i think season 1 Eli is closer to Chihaya. just change being hipster with singing to being hipster with dancing. she also had a conflict in the past that prevented her from performing. she's also quite strict without going overboard that Umi does. of course, when you look at the physical aspect, Eli is a blonde with Russian blood and has a body of a supermodel. she also grew out of that phase quickly after around the end of S1
The bullying never stops though I wonder if he even browses here anymore with dead threads and /vg/.
You should go back to fucking school because that's not how equivalence works you dropout.
He doesn't even post scans on /vg/ with his wordpress. Even when stuff gets dumped on /a/, they are ignored which is good and bad. He also supposedly plays SIF so it makes sense for him to be there too.
>繪 ≡ e
>里 ≡ ri
Nope, you're still wrong. It doesn't even matter if you accurately define the context, even if the kanji's pronunciation is identical to the letters you assign them to, it doesn't change the official spelling of Eli's name.
LL is a yuri heaven for all otaku and yurifags in Japan for some reason.
>mfw don't even care much about the show
>mfw drained all my balls on all the KotoUmi doujins lately
God I love Muramurapocky. God bless Japan.
It's only correct spelling within the confines of your head, anon, and that's all it'll ever be in this world.
>How do you even fap to yuri?
By not being a faggot
It has some melodrama if you're into that but not a lot of it. Most of it is cute girls being cute idols with their cute dance routines and fun songs.
There are always exceptions like you but you can't ignore all those loud people that hate Kotori, Nico, and Eli for their role in the anime. Best to play it safe for newcomers.
it's a better K-On! show or CGDCT in terms of having accomplished what they were set out to do in the beginning. in the span of 26 episodes, it has more actual idol group sing and dance performances than [email protected], though they used CG. it also managed to give focus on all characters and none of them felt left out despite having 9 characters. at its core, it's a simple story of friendship between girls who enjoy and are determined to becoming idols.
Rin is a girly boy who just wants to be treated as manly and still hasn't gotten over being bullied.
Her girlfriend Hanayo helps her become a beautiful groom for a day.
Same reason everyone bitches about the Namassuka Trio.
IDOL DRAMA arcs.
They are practically obligatory in almost every Idol Anime except PP and Aikatsu.
I liked it. Seeing Honoka race all the way to the airport to stop her girlfriend from leaving was great.
I wonder what the King of Asspulls will do in KantaiKore next year.
I'm expecting at least the Idol Ship to sing on stage.
>I can understand this, would be a reason of why people ship them together but if they do not interact much more aside from that in the manga I would still not understand why the shipping.
There's more to it.
Maki also gets dragged into Nico's goofy bullshit.
It's a good day for a confession, neh Kouta-kun?
Rin could pass for a reverse-trap but that is about it.
Maybe there will be a plot twist that one of the Normals is actually a guy?
I didn't like her self pitying in that one episode where she kept on going about some kind of inferiority complex due to Honoka and Umi. Don't like how she just rolls over and listens to whatever Honoka says either.
I got a copy myself, but someone on twitter let me know it'd be a waste to scan it as there's someone else with it as well.
Would that be your scanner perchance?
It's quite boring, honestly. And short.
He's obviously not making an LL thread to make an LL thread, he wanted to be attacked for his shit taste.
>not a part of the fanbase
Why are you even here?
Seems a little fake, could be nicomaki thread in disguise, unless OP is that stupid. Whole thread has been on autopilot
>could be nicomaki thread in disguise
I'm willing to accept this
What part of ALL girls school don't you get?
There's stuff from s2 and not the MVs that people haven't been posting. But generally it's all the small things that people pick up on.
I almost feel bad for you. Almost. You have a few options, either become one of us, leave, or continue being a faggot.
No, I won't have a regression on being a deluded retard with yuri goggles sealed on 24/7. I grew up from that already and now appreciate when girls are just friends, and support canonical pairings. Shipfaggots should just drop dead, you're hella annoying.
>implying I can't appreciate when girls are just friends
>implying I don't support canonical pairings
Oh please, tell me more about your ascension.
So I was looking around (usual places) and I stumbled onto yet another Idol Rhythm game called Idol Rizm.
They even have their very own (and possibly the most perfect) Nico-clone.
Or maybe it's Nico's long lost twin sister separated at birth when Daddy Yazawa left?
This whole entire show is about their friendship, of course I'd appreciate it. Stop being a pretentious faggot and get the stick out of your ass. I can clearly recognize the difference between what is canon and not and still occasionally indulge in fantasies provided by both talented fan artists and the show itself.
Face it, the show recognizes a strongly supported ship, and they do so by putting in small cute friend shit between obvious pairings to show their own support.
This entire franchise is about giving fans what they want and seeing as you're in the minority, tough fucking luck.
Do you support the friendship or the pairings, then? You can't support both as they are mutually exclusive. Also the pairings will never be canon, doesn't matters how much yurifags (still a minority among the fanbase) want them.
The latter just to fuck with you. It literally doesn't matter to me whether it'll be canon or not, I love their friendship, their chemistry, and all the fanart that features them doing lewd or friendly shit with each other.
i'm shipping all 3 first years together, nico can get in there if she wants i guess
Nico definitely too attached to her mom to even make a move on Maki. Anime and official art agree.
It doesn't have to make sense, anon. It just has to be fun.
No. I take anime way too seriously to just have "FUN" with a bunch of braindead 16 years old girls (and men with the exact same mentality) that ship everyone with everyone for the sake of shipping and then call you an homophobic bigot when you point out it's not canon and never will. This is why I hate /u/, this is why I hate tumblr and Pixiv and shipfags. You're intolerant fucks that will say we are intolerant when you shove down our throats your crack pairings until we get enough. FUCK OFF.
>getting mad at shipperfags when the fucking thing panders to them extremely hard
This series is not for you. Like fuck I don't know what you're expecting from something done by Sakurako.
Legitimately speaking, you should probably look into a different hobby. Or at least look into different genres. I can't understand how you can take this anime seriously enough to be actually offended. It's just people having fantasies about fictional characters for fuck's sake. You can shake your head all you want towards the guys foaming in the mouth about their non-biological children running around which is what I do but a lot of us just really enjoy the fact that this shit gets so much quality fanart and love from its fans and if you can't at least enjoy that seeing as most of it is yuri pandering then I'm sorry to tell you that the shit's already been occupied.
chill man, if you don't like it, just hide the post
you know what i hate? people buying overpriced Dr. Dre beats when there are better headphones for 1/3 the price.
but the point is, you don't see me going around everywhere telling people off
I'm just fucking tired of shipfags forcing everyone to have a love interest. I already know all of you are sexually deprived, just don't project it.
>Like fuck I don't know what you're expecting from something done by Sakurako
Something with actual pairings or none at all? This shipshit is annoying.
> It's just people having fantasies about fictional characters for fuck's sake
And shoving them down your throat EITHER YOU'RE A HOMOPHOBIC SHITLORD IT'S RIGHT THERE YOU CAN'T SEE IT BECAUSE YOU HATE GAYS.
>a lot of us just really enjoy the fact that this shit gets so much quality fanart and love from its fans
And I do too. My only complain is that shipfaggotry is literally out of control.
>as most of it is yuri pandering
You have to be a yurifag to consider this yuri pandering. Love Live! is animeota/wota pandering.
>backhanded comment about our collective sexual depravity
>various other past statements implying being a normal fag
I really don't know why I decided to sympathize with you, I completely forgot how you really don't belong here at all. Just continue to pound sand anon, I'll keep feeding you this shit if it can rouse this shit out of you. Hopefully it'll eventually make you leave.
This ones a little risque, I usually don't enjoy posting stuff like this but things are a little different now.
You have to post another one too.
I don't think I can keep up
I don't even keep track of these kind of pictures. I just like contrast.
I try to keep things organized but it's impossible sometimes. I also like contrast, I feel like this is is also one of the appealing factors of NicoMaki.
>it's impossible sometimes
The purple must have confused me.
Certainly, Toujou's nozos were a big factor.
There are several of them. They just don't get scanned.
Or, if you meant the lewd ones, then I agree.
It disappoints me that there are still no KotoHono doujin.
I know is asking for one good KotoHono doujin really too much to ask for?
I enjoy the nicomaki and umikoto doujins, but I really really really want a good KotoHono doujin scanned.
Remind me, she was alone during the boat pairoff right?
Yeah, I've never gone along with it either.
Honoka clearly acquired Maki as a concubine early on; she was the one who scouted her out. NicoMaki seems like the creators just wanted Nico paired up with someone, anyone at all.
The only real challenge on Honoka's part is that Umi and Kotori were already her in her harem for years, while she had to seduce Maki from a cold start.
Oh holy fucking shit.
They look terrible together. I mean they could be gay as fuck for each other, but aesthetically, their appearances don't compliment each other at all. I mean that sort of thing isn't necessary for a real relationship, but in fiction, a couple should look cute together.
Go to sleep.
whenever i see this picture of Nozomi and Nico, i think less of how it's nice to ship them and more of how i want an ffm threesome with them. the other pictures seem to be ship material though.
They make nice musical instruments.
Did something too rough last night?
Nothing stop you from posting lewd stuffs.
No. We barely get any RinPana doujins as it is.
The mobile game is actually pretty good too. Pretty genius multimedia strategy.
They're just kind of opposites in like every way is what I think it is:
-Maki is the second youngest character, Nico is the oldest
-Maki is the second tallest, Nico is the shortest
-Maki comes from a rich family and is an only child, Nico comes from a working class family with multiple siblings
-Maki shies away from attention, Nico desperately craves it
-Maki is talented at composing and singing, Nico just kind of lacks talent in general
-Maki at the start thinks idol activities are beneath her interests in classical music, Nico thinks idols are the shit
-Maki is curiously naive about everything, Nico is really cynical.
-Maki is generally considered in universe and out to be traditionally beautiful, Nico is considered to be the least so.
It makes sense in a way that yuri fags would pair them up in a way. Honestly the show kind of lends itself really easily to this sort of thing with Honoka/Umi, Rin/Hanayo, Maki/Nico, Eli/Nozomi and Kotori/Alpaca. Even Yukiho/Ayase makes sense in a way.
I know I know. I mostly prefer lewdcute things too. Kotori is more on the overly girly cute side and she thinks the same way we do about designing outfits, she's one of us. She's dangerous because of that.
>Good at anything
Realistically? It has a thin metal cable that you can put around your waist and adjust the lenght so the tail looks good.
Unrealistically: She's the one who gave Nico her puttplug anyways so this might be a vaggo one.
Why don't you have one yet, anon? You're such a fucking faggot holy shit.
>She's the one who gave Nico her puttplug
Great. Now I'm imagine Kotori forcing Nico to insert buttplug in front of her. And my boner just won't calm down.
There's literally nothing to hate about her once she comes to terms with her past. She's a sweet, caring, hard-working, talented senpai with a killer body and superior Russian genes.
You didn't explain your opinion either, which apparently means you can't.
Reminder that this is an actual thing, and it is one of your fetishes.
>Bumping from page 9
If we were like 50 posts before the limit I could understand but what are you even doing.
>what are you even doing.
Replying to a thread I like.
Shocking concept, I know.
If you liked the show I'd say that's believeable.
This thread however is the shittiest we've had in ages and that's something rather terrifying in a dead fanbase.
Even with him the threads were terrible. And there's those one or two dedicated shitheads that keep insulting him anyways. LL threads are dead, the people that knew something about the franchise have left or are only here to inform newfags about things.
Until the movie comes out we will have nothing to talk about since only 3-5 people care about the manga and barely anyone wants to discuss the music.
Even if the movie comes out some will be able to watch it much earleir than others which will lead to lot's of people not entering the thread because they don't want to get spoiled
See you guys in fall 2015 when the BD of the movie comes out.
There will be no S3. Pray for a manga adaption.
>this faggot spamming is sexual fantasies.
Think about it; someone actually took his time wrote all these.
I finished those lewd Kousaka and Ayase sisters doujins and nearly finished the lewd papa's one but after the threads started sucking this hard I didn't feel like delivering anymore. Soory lewd papas guy if you're alive somewhere out there.
Looking at my last post I think I should go to bed. Not seeing your signature picture makes me doubt your authenticity but what ever. If the threads become bearable again I'll upload that stuff.
Dude do you even smug giggle?
This is how Nozomi survives. The more breasts she rubs, the more hers enlarge thus sustaining her life force.
>"the second years started the group"
I have a problem with this because they wouldn't have been able to do anything without Maki writing their first song. Second years and Maki are the core, founding group. Everyone else is just window dressing and ancillary staff.
Honoka isn't needed either because she doesn't really do anything than saying ファイトだよ.
Oh, maybe Kotori too. Since you can just hire some designer to do it.
Talking about hiring someone, let's just dump Umi and Maki. Professionals do better than them.
Conclusion: let's just worship A-RISE
