Sunshine anime coming this summer:
I'm pretty happy for Anju 'An-chan.'
She's gone from playing the mobage to ballotting for tickets to becoming leader of the next generation of School Idols and performing as a part of Love Live.
Now her group is getting an anime.
It didn't come up in the last thread, so.
KotoHonoUmiMaki (combining the original sets of hosts for the Nicovideo livestreams) are coming back on Saturday to do a "Revival" special. The LV link is here: http://live.nicovideo.jp/gate/lv248090953
BiBi have their next single coming up, and the upcoming Kotori/Honoka SID is expected for a March release. The same crew did commentary during Kouhaku Ura Talk as well, which Mimorin mentioned in a recent blog post. All in all they should have plenty to talk about.
I just finished watching this series and man, what a ride.
I still cannot get over the enjoyment I just had and the songs are still stuck in my head.
-Honoka is probably going to inherit the bakery too
-Nico will make bank being a super idol
-Eli would probably get a management position somewhere, given her leadership skills
-Umi will have the dojo after all
-Nozomi, Rin and Hanayo end up being the stay at home mommys
Everything works out.
> Nozomi not putting casinos out of business while leading a legitimate highwaywoman life evading bans because her sheer luck is too stronk
> Rin not swimming in big bucks from all her sponsorships and collaborations
> Hanayo not receiving recognition for leadership qualities, contributions to the school, and various career prospects by virtue of excellent resume credentials
Did all the shitty "AUs" on Tumblr influence you into making one too, anon?
I kinda imagine the μ's reuniting and becoming professional idols after everyone graduated. You cannot just kill off what you are passionate about
Eli, Nozomi, Hanayo, and Maki learned that the hard way. They spent years denying themselves of what they wanted to do.
Nico is the most passionate in the team, going as far as making second personas. Shame the authors treated her like a joke.
EliUmi have absolutely no dynamic. It feels boring.
I'm probably biased because I'm such a NozoEli fag, but even their seiyuus look cute together.
>Madoka Tier: NozoEli / KotoUmi
>Good Tier: NicoMaki
>Diabetic Tier: RinPana
>Lidah Tier: TubaHonks
What does diabetic tier or Lidah tier mean?
Also Nicomaki is pleb tier, not good tier.
I don't mind any pairings. Granted I have my favorites, but the great thing about Love Live is that different pairings have enough subtext and straight text to be seen. Fighting over pairings is kinda dumb.
Some pairings that I like are:
NozoNico (One of my favorites. I don't know, they just have a great dynamic)
KotoMaki (Rather obscure, I know)
NicoUmi (Really out there, but I does exist)
>(Really out there, but I does exist)
>but I does exist
I meant it. Jesus, my typing is bad today.
Need some head massage?
>Not liking any of the raibus
Absolutely the worst
With all due respect to stay-at-home parents, and that this all stemmed from an obvious (if not funny) joke in the first place; simply saying "so-and-so characters end up being stay at home parents" has several unpleasant connotations:
(1) that it is somehow a bad thing,
(2) that after all the unique traits that they have, and the things they have done, for example, as set out in >>1959077, all they are good for is being somebody's waifu (which in turn has its own implications),
(3) that you couldn't be arsed to put in the thought you did to consider the other members' possible future careers to them as well, smacking of laziness and/or lack of understanding,
...and so on. While not even taking into account the various occasions their CVs themselves have discussed the same topic of the girls' prospects.
So yes, to reiterate, the intention may have been a joke, but it is not funny.
Without any touch of sarcasm, you're the first I've seen to say this. Most remarks on King are about her teeth, or her eyes, etc.
And that's a shame when she's got plenty of personality, hard work, and musical talent to be attractive beyond typical "standards" of beauty. In the right outfits and camera angles, she is quite good-looking, I agree.
Aqours in general just seem to have made a hobby of making weird faces.
Love Live is a franchise that makes ALL pairings plausible and sexy.
Here's hoping that Sunshine can pull that off too.
>Love Live is a franchise that makes ALL pairings plausible and sexy.
I've seen this lauded a lot, and I can't say I like it. Given the choice between hinting at several pairings and cementing certain ones, I'd pick the latter any day.
I'm glad the fan artists seemed to have settled on certain pairings overall. Not that I'm against 'crack' or anything, I just prefer it when the original work leaves no doubt as to who gets together with who and artists choose to do their own thing if they want to.
>(1) that it is somehow a bad thing.
Not what I meant to imply. As I said before, in retrospect >>1959115 was a far more realistic scenario.
>So yes, to reiterate, the intention may have been a joke, but it is not funny.
Not in the business of doing what pleases you, I feel the need to clarify.
This. A character who acts lovey-dovey with another character is sweet and romantic. A character who acts like that with everyone just comes across as overly friendly.
It's pretty much the classic
>I love you, A-chan!
>Eh... do you really mean that...?
>Of course! And B-chan, and C-chan, and D-sensei, and E-kun, and...

>Honoka will always be the third wheel
Feels bad to be Honoka.
>Honks has 3 ships on the top 10
Why so negative?
I'm happy NozoNico made the list.
You know well that those two are the most innocent girls in μ's. I doubt that they could even define the meaning of sex, let alone be the tachi.
Nozomi is the only one who actually shows a dominating personality.
While "innocent" is not necessarily the word that comes to mind for Nico; in the SIDs and SIF especially, Nico's obliviousness to affection is quite blatant, presumably because she is so unused to it outside a familiar context. Hanayo is very innocent, I agree, her character arcs are about personal growth that can hardly be taken in any way to mean "yandere".
Nozomi strikes me more as calculating and knowledgeable about social behavior than "dominating", however. A dominating person wouldn't be content with taking a watcher's role like she has.
Anon you replied to is just fishing since >>1959365 didn't get an overwhelming response. But of course we knew that.
If anything, Eli's various fits of jealousy over Nozomi are the closest we'll get to yandere in canon. It doesn't seem like a trope Kimino and the other writers care for or enjoy much. That said, Maki's face on the Sakkaku Crossroads cover was compared to one doujin where she more or less manipulated Nico into falling for her, with remarkable likeness. BiBi is a dangerous unit.
Have you guys heard new BiBI's song already? What do you think about it?
Rather 90s and typically edgy of them. Which means the c/w track is the goofy one, the Love Novels/Trouble Busters equivalent for this single.
Which is a strange thought, considering how "PSYCHIC FIRE" isn't all that dorky a title.
More like Honoka will always have a smorgasbord of women to choose from and for some reason HonoUmi is now the most popular.
I remember when HonoEli was the top Honoka ship on pixiv.
If you didn't know by now TsubaHono is actually a moderately popular ship on pixiv. It's currently in the 200s along with HonoRin.
To push TsubaHono into 5th place, you best start drawing 5 pictures a day from now until the end of this year. 2000 extra pictures should be enough.
I guess pixiv has come around to liking the main RedxBlue pair or in Honoka's case OrangexBlue.
Given how often Red and Blue goes together, I can't help but speculate if the Sunshine anime will push ChikaxYou.
I will admit I more inclined to have Umi in a relationship with Honoka despite my preference for KotoHono.
I love the ship but Kotori agrees with almost everything Honoka because she doesn't want to hurt her. It's noble but if we take it to it's logical conclusion, there's no break on any of Honoka's rush in moments no matter how badly thought out.
Umi provides a nice alternative, she criticises Honoka for what she does wrong out of love.
OT3 is the best for Honoka, though. Umi tends to be way too strict and Honoka needs a bit of freedom. Having Kotori and Umi reigning her would be the best. Now, Honoka is a really demanding partner, that's for sure.
Actually, the TsubaHono works extremely well.
Most doujin about them features Tsubasa as a secret admirer who keeps her emotions lock while Honoka plays the dense MC.
Man, I had a good laugh at those doujin.
They're supportive of and inspirational to each other. Mutual respect is important for a relationship, whether it be developing or already a thing. The movie did well expanding on what season 2 touched on, when Honoka discussed what decision to make with Tsubasa, which also parallels Tsubasa seeking out Honoka after A-RISE were eliminated in the preliminaries.
Dismissing the ship as merely "pairing the spares" disregards how they are good to and for each other.
Tangentially related, but from what little they've talked about publicly of their relationship IRL, Emitsun and Sakuragawa's is somewhat like their characters too.
The rationale is basically Tsubasa inspired Honoka to be a school idol and when she first saw Tsubasa perform you could practically see her ladyboner. Tsubasa is also the one who first approaches Honoka and seems very eager to get to know her.
On the other hand KotoI never really made much sense to me. If it wasn't for Honoka they would have any reason to spend time together. You can even see in a lot of their doujin they usually act guilty like they're going behind her back.
>The rationale is basically Tsubasa inspired Honoka to be a school idol and when she first saw Tsubasa perform you could practically see her ladyboner. Tsubasa is also the one who first approaches Honoka and seems very eager to get to know her.
This is nothing but grasping at straws. Honoka never identifies anyone in A-Rise as her inspiration, she talked about the entire unit. She saw them as that and never really refers at anyone of them directly. It's always "A-Rise."
Another thing, I don't understand why you, and other people, keep bringing doujins up. I understand liking them, but in the grand scheme of things they are just fan creations and don't really matter.
Assuming you're referring to KotoUmi, it's time you read doujins with better or more pleasant storylines, or, this may come as a shock, but take a look at canon support for the pairing.
>I don't understand why you, and other people, keep bringing doujins up
Fan culture, mate
Same reason as to why people ships Cirno and Daiyousei despite the lack of canon proof
Tsubasa x Honoka is one of the most refreshing yuri pairings I have found.
Well, it doesn't matter for what I was talking about. Characterization in doujins is all over the place, it's meaningless for this discussion. It like saying that Madoka is totally in love with Homura (when canonically she isn't) because doujins say so.
Seems to mirror the English fandom. Though it's a shame that so few RinPana and KotoUmi doujins got translated though.
But since I'm just a pleb who ship the first 4 pairings (+NozoNico and OT3) I guess things are still going well for me. It's good to like common stuff it seems.
>Though it's a shame that so few RinPana and KotoUmi doujins got translated though.
With RinPana I concur, However KotoUmi holds quite a substantial chunk in the amount of doujins translated.
That's what I meant. Autocorrect had a stroke. Strange since it normally doesn't butt in when something is capitalized.
Either way, can't say I recall ever seeing any canon support for KotoUmi unless it was in SIF or SID or something
Anemone Heart is strange that it could be taken to be about their feelings for Honoka just as much as it could for them meaning the lyrics at each other.
I don't have footage on hand, but during the recent online broadcast of the 4th Live, some viewers noted that Ucchi and Mimorin were wearing red and orange flowers. Red flowers are for love, and we all know whose color orange is. Compare also the choreography where they barely exchanged passing glances, unlike, say, Garasu no Hanazono which is blatantly NozoEli.
I prefer KotoUmi over either pairing with Honoka, but we mustn't put her out of the picture for no reason, which apparently is still an issue which comes up whenever we start talking about second-year ships.
Umi is always concern about Honoka, you know.
Both Honoka and Kotori would be useless without her.
If anything, Eli's various fits of jealousy over Nozomi
Can you elaborate on this, please, anon? I really wish someone would at least make a summary of the NozoEli SID, aside from the first two chapter I've never found anything mentioned about it.
The first two chapters of the NozoEli SID are the most shippy, which is why they tend to get more attention. The second half of the book is more about the members celebrating Christmas with each other, hence the title.
Eli really does get jealous over Nozomi a lot. Her SID goes into their past before she became student council president, a position which essentially was forced on her because no one else would do it (the same phenomenon would occur when she was considering findng a successor), and Nozomi volunteered to be her vice-president when she saw how Eli was so stressed out over the whole thing. Therefore when Nozomi showed interest in stuff outside the student council, like hearing out Kotori talk about the second-years' school idol plans; or attending at a college to sit in for lessons she was interested in during the events of her own SID; and the like, Eli turns very clingy, as though Nozomi is abandoning her. Their brief falling-out in the Christmas SID can be attributed to this as well, since Nozomi chose to seek help from Umi and Maki instead of her like she used to, Eli keeps goading her and basically threw a tantrum and made sad puppy eyes at her until Nozomi decided to put her idea of becoming more independent from Eli on hold.
If you're referring to the "summaries" on tvtropes and tumblr, they seem to have been copypasted from a reply to a past thread on /u/ I did, actually. Aside from those, there are some translated fragments here dorple.tumblr.com/post/125503188172/ and here dorple.tumblr.com/post/134583999217/
Thank you kindly, anon, I'm always starving for more NozoEli.
>If you're referring to the "summaries" on tvtropes and tumblr
No, I was thinking about some rough details about the NozoEli SID that appeared just right after it came out, I think they were from some chinese blog from someone who had just received their copy. I do remember those past posts on /u and those translations on tumblr, hence me asking for something aside from the first two chapters. Thanks again!
Don't send me back there to search again, anon. It was a thread full of meme spouting losers whining over each others opinions and acting like they know better.
Wait a minute... that's just like the rest of the internet!
I CANNOT AWAKEN FROM THIS NIGHTMARE!
... But in all seriousness, I didn't find it. I'll take a second look tomorrow after work, assuming the thread is still up.
The full version is leaked already.
Only thing that remains is official lyrics, some from soramimi might need clarification.
Sakkaku CROSSROADS will, from the sound of it, be Maki-centered and with rotating secondary centers between Eli and Nico. There's a storyline here to be found in the "I used to think I understood you better than anybody else", "I lost my love", "rather than words, touch conveys more" and so on. Link it to the jacket art and Magnetic Today and the angst-ridden NicoMaki is all there.
PSYCHIC FIRE is definitely going to be a total riot to match or surpass Trouble Busters when performed live. Will Nanjolno have it in her to remain upright by the end of so many calls of "bibibibibibi..."?
CROSSROADS is a pretty sad song, trust Maki and Eli to always bring the angst.
>“This love has come too late
I cannot even convey that we should separate and move on"
That line is specially sad if you see it from a NicoMaki perspective.
My favorite line is "The person before me is the one I implore for". The part where the last note drags out is especially poignant.
If Aikyan's and King's seats were switched during their nico nama program, that would easily drive it home. But that would ruin the sad lonesome chuuni thing Yohane has going for her they were evidently trying to make part of her image.
Don't forget kotoumi, Yohane has gray color and then same hairstyle/color as kotoumi (although, she's the devil so I thought it could be kotonico, well, actually she's more like a mixture of kotoumi and nicomaki) while Riko is obviously the mixture of makiumi.
Ofc not, Honoka has a harem and so will Chika.
>I'm glad the fan artists seemed to have settled on certain pairings overall.
You say that, but I see plenty fanartists, good ones, that'll depict various different, mutually ships. I think a lot of them are just open to looking at different possibilities/universes, which is amusing to me considering how zealous the ones that do nothing but post can be.
Its the opposite actually. Umi is shy and awkward (to the point that the idea the she has devoted fangirls freak her out) and can't act on anything out of her comfort zone. It's Honoka who gives Umi the motivational push. To complement that Umi, as the most sensible one, is what grounds Honoka and Kotori on their more enthusiastic actions. Because they are very close, they do listen to her. Kotori is basically the emotional support, always trusting on whatever they want to do. All three complement each other perfectly.
Honkers was never a "third wheel". That was fanon generated by overzealous KotoUmi shippers who end up mischaracterizing all three characters.
Its also worth pointing out that OT3 has been lampshaded by other characters as well.
I was talking about the anime where Honoka was nearly quit the group, though. Besides, Honoka wouldn't be there if it wasn't for Umi (Umi was the one who composed the songs afterall)
I don't mind that there's variety. I'm just glad that there's some sort of overall consensus so I can just read those and think of them as set in the 'real' LL universe and the rest as what-if scenarios/alternate universes.
Ideally a show and other canon media themselves would establish a set of pairings and allow artists to make other ones if they want to do so. But that isn't what happened with Love Live, and I don't get why people praise that aspect of it. What >>1959524
says makes sense to me.
Umi is the lyricist. It's Maki who is the composer.
And Umi would never have even written the song or join µ's if it wasn't for Honoka convincing them to do so. This is not some one way dependency, they need each other.
For that matter, Maki would never have composed the song either if it wasn't for Honkers convincing her to do so despite knowing each other for barely 10 minutes. There a reason Honkers is the de facto leader.
Oh yeah, sorry I mean lyrics.
Also nobody said that Honk was useless, she's the leader afterall. I just didn't like the way how Honoka said that she's quitting the muse. Good thing Umi was there to save the group.
Back up. I thought we agreed DiaRuby was the Sunshine NicoMaki.
Alright time to give you some long overdue context on RikoYoshiko.
Riko's typical off-day schedule (and you can find this all on the LL Wikia) involves meeting someone named Yocchan at 12pm. I long suspected that Yocchan was in fact, Yoshiko.
Yocchan was confirmed to be Yoshiko in an article on Riko's subunit from January's Dengeki G's. Riko as we already know is in a Western Gothic subunit with Yoshiko and Mari.
On another note, this had led to a fanon interpretation on /a/vg/ that Riko is a whore playing with Chika and Yoshiko's hearts for fun.
She'll follow in Honoka's footsteps and be shipped with almost everyone causing a new Shipping War to engulf the fandom.
Either that or more ChikaRiko.
Maybe it'll be like Hanayamata where Chika starts getting closer to Riko making Kanan extremely jealous.
Yeah, but what happens with LL isn't lazy harem-type stuff, it's just a series where the official material doesn't focus on romance beyond teases, so the fans all have their own interpretations of how they think/want relationships to play out.
And LL being a multimedia franchise where different parts are written by different people with their own interpretations of the characters only spurs that on even more.
And Nico who's usually being pompous as hell when someone compliment her is blushed red by Eli's words.
Nico, I still have a lot of fries left, want some?
Eli-san, this shake is really good, wanna have some?
Nico has had that face since Maki told her to stop acting so sugary and unbearably cutesy. But Eli says in that pic: She's not necessarily acting, Nico's just being very school idol-like, which should be cute. Right?
>And LL being a multimedia franchise where different parts are written by different people with their own interpretations of the characters only spurs that on even more.
Yeah, so what that tells me is the creators never sat down and discussed who should be paired with who. That's fine, although obviously I would have preferred it the other way.
But then fans see this and go "Isn't it great, LL has all these different pairings!" Which is just bonkers to me.
Well whatever, people are free to like what they choose.
While we're on the topic, there's also the time when Nico offered Eli her cardigan because it looked like she was catching a cold.
Which is something she's never done for anyone else, not to mention that Nico seems to be not good with cold herself in the first place. She wears that thing even when the others are in summer uniform.
It's easy to joke about how Nico is the odd one out when the other third-years are doing the de-de-de; and how Eli is the odd one out in BiBi. But the fact is that they show a lot of regard and consideration for each other too.
Have there ever been any canon moments (SID, side stories, etc) where Maki was shown to be jealous/possessive over Nico? The infamous TsubaMaki NTR scene threw me in for a loop as I wasn't expecting Nico to be the jealous one, but I guess Maki has too many girlfriends to care if someone is getting close to Nico.
There is this scene from episode 4 of season 2. Maki looks suspiciously upset over Nico cooking for a special person.
how can i make myself look like i am catching a cold????
Here's Murata's longer adult release. The shorter one should be soon too thanks to anon's quick translating. Any QC is welcome!
Off the top of my head, Maki tends to react badly when the topic of the third-years' graduation comes up. There's the "I don't want a µ's without you" teary breakdown that even Pile joked about, and in one of the SIDs she becomes noticeably agitated when graduation is mentioned.
Did someone of you watched this video where all the seiyuu are like in a fan meeting and Ucchi starts crying and then Rippi starts crying as well? I can't find it but I want to know why they cried. To be honest, it made me sad...
>Watching Love Wing Bell performance on Go Go Love Live, Day 2
>Sea of Yellow and Green (RinPana Colour Code)
>That one hipster with Red and Yellow
>Think I even saw a Orange and Yellow
Would this count as an objection?
Onee-samas, please help an anon out. I'm not really a fan of idol-related things but I see so much nozoeli and nicomaki out there that I might just try to get into Love Live for it. So, is Love Live gay enough that it'd be worth watching just for that? Pls and thank.
just keep in mind this pic and the video is official art
Don't know how one measures a shows gayness. For me, if you can make dozens of screenshots of the anime that look gay without context I'd think that show is worth looking into.
The anime is not really that gay. If you going in expecting a bunch of shipping fuel then I expect you'd be quite disappointed. The strongest support for those ships actually come for other materials like SID, SIF, songs...etc... So if you're willing to give a bit of commitment then I guess that would be fine.
All this gayness oozing out never fails to please my soul.
I don't personally care for LL too much, watched the two seasons and that's it. I don't think the /u/ alone makes it worth it, NozoEli and NicoMaki have a few really shippable moments but that's pretty much it. It's not a bad show, but if you don't like idol stuff, I'm not sure if this is up your alley.
It's likely to not get what the big deal is about the ships, if you watch the anime solely.
The cast is very engaging, however, and their close bonds are evident. The anime only came in the third year when they had become a group.
Watch the anime first, then take a look at the 9-member specials, the After School specials, Fight Club, etc. See them casually touching each other, and making jokes about their characters' songs and lines, and talking about their own ships.
The IRL μ's are a grand story on their own, and it hasn't come to an end yet.
We have a MC who doesn't have any personal space (Honoka) and the rest of the cast tends to be in pairs. So it's pretty gay.
Firstly, don't expect much NicoMaki until the last 4 episodes. For whatever reason, storyboarding shafted that aside in favor of Maki with the First years or Maki with Honoka. To say the least, it was disappointing for pre-anime NicoMaki fans and confusing for everyone else.
As for NozoEli, their relationship is more established since they work together on the Student Council. Eli is also Nozomi's first friend at Otonakizaka. I don't remember much of S1 (NozoEli wise) but in S2, they start going out for parfaits and they share a hug in that episode they write Snow Halation on screen.
I'd personally recommend a different order if you want to get into Love Live alone.
1. Watch the MVs in chronological order.
2. Listen to both best Albums
3. Watch Anime
4. Read manga/SIDs
5. Watch the Concerts.
Of course it is, it features super-idol Nico-Nico-Nii after all~
This is the most convincing thing for NozoEli, actually. Nozomi's sitting on the bed and Eli just comes up behind her and drapes her arms around her like that. You just don't do that with anybody. You pretty much only do this with somebody that you are in a close, intimate relationship with. It's an EXTREMELY intimate pose.
Sorry for the wait, my orders got delayed getting to my proxy.
And I can't really do much about the cover, because it has sparkles all over it.
And this was so sweet and heartwarming that I felt the need to share it.
I scanned this a while ago for Girls in Boxes, but they've been busy with real life lately. You can do whatever you want with it.
You're wrong, there already is a scanlation.
What? You want it in English? Too bad for you, then.
Or, well, not. Art quality aside, the book is rather terrible, in terms of subject matter and that it rehashes overused cliches.
What I would give for a TubaHonk book that is actually in character and showcases their mutual, healthy, admiration and respect for each other.
More motivation for you to learn Jap then.
The language in doujin is usually quite simple. Would probably just take you a few months to to comprehend everything.
Also, can't blame people for spending effort on what they like.
Thanks anon. Somehow it feels quite intense. But Karuha surely delivers with one.
Maki's attempt at wooing Nico is hilarious,
Can't wait for this to get translated and typeset since with my broken jap i can't understand everything, considering this is one of the more wordy one.
>see 105 pages
>oh probably multiple artists
>actually just one
>and it's 90% lesbian sex
I want to make 100-page doujins of my favorite pairings too...
Soramaru has Lovelivers added to her SIF friends list.
Including Lovelivers who spotted her change her face card to the Sakkaku Crossroads promo SR Maki.
She could have, for all we know. Soramaru's far more open about her account details, like her all-Nico deck, her display name, and such, than most of the other members. I still remember her posting a screencap of the Merry Christmas popup and going WHAT IS THIIIIS.
The rest usually just talk about how they didn't pull URs of their own characters yet again.
Soramaru has had that badge for weeks now. It doesn't seem to really indicate whether Honoka is her best girl, the badge is a reward for one of the assignments unlocked at her level. When she eventually reaches level 112 she well might swap it for the Kotori-oshi badge, she's said before that Kotori is her favorite.
>, the badge is a reward for one of the assignments unlocked at her level
True, but still you have to make the effort of playing the song with an all-Honk team, so at least she had to willingly obtain it, it's not an automatic reward. I do know Kotori is her favorite tho, so we'll see what happens once she unlocks Blueberry train.
The new Miku collab merch featuring the standard pairings.
>Honks is the only one seen fit to get paired with another popular idol from another franchise.
> Her two BFFs are still loyal and devoted to her.
Yes poor Honoka.
Also Honks is not a third wheel and has never been a third wheel.
> KotoUmi fanon is more canon than HonoKotoUmi
Sure keep telling yourself that. Like whatever pairing you want, but the fact is Honoka was never the third wheel.
We can't have everything translated. We have only so few translators.
What matters is that the highest quality ones will fall to their hands.
I hope that someone translate the Love Live yandere doujin.
As a translator myself, I find it very distasteful to "translate" a translation from another language. Some meaning is bound to get lost along the way, and if the initial translation had errors in it, they will get carried over. Not to mention that the only people I have seen doing so do not give proper credit and might not even have received permission from those they had translated from.
Working with raws has a better likelihood of accuracy.
Never had problems asking for them, in my experience, except from scanners who can't or won't share for whatever reason. Chinese scanlators usually have, at minimum, a Weibo account or QQ contact. Those are pretty awful means of communication, but it's communication nevertheless.
Slowly catching up.
Thank you for the hard work! I did really badly in translating one of the pages for some reason (probably got confused on who says what [and the narrative used could work both ways], but rereading it again made me realise my mistake), sorry about that.
For Page 6:
PG6Bubble4: I thought we'd get to do it on the day I get back, how unexpected...
PG6Bubble5: You're always like this, Nico-chan
PG6Bubble6: Even though you're so busy and tired all the time
PG6Bubble7: When we do it, I'm always the one on the receiving end
PG6Bubble8: Do you really not want me to do the same for you...?
Almost done with the this >>1964251
It's pain reliever patch (think salonpas) because being an idol tends to be heavy duty and could take a toll on your body and muscles. She's been touring for a month.

Chu's day! (there's already a band called this apparently, so it'll probably be removed)
Powerful Garage (note: likely a reference to garage rock)
Komorebi (lit. "Sunshine filtering through foliage")
Sazanka (lit. Camellia)
Koakuma Individual (lit. Little Devil Individual)
Sumire-gumi (lit. Violet Group)
"Powerful Garage" may the both the siliest and most awesone name for me. Which is why it likely won't win.
