Love Live! School Idol Project

Hey, this wasn’t that bad. Not bad at all. I thought that I was going to dislike this show. I usually do when it comes to shows with a lot of singing. I just can’t appreciate it. That’s why I’m so surprised. It was pretty darn amusing.

Love Live! School Idol ProjectThe artwork looks good, the backgrounds look good and the characters look good. It all simply looks good. I especially like the character’s expressions. They don’t focus too much and they don’t get too fanatical with it. Everything is just fine.

The story is what will keep me watching, probably. It’s not that unique, but the setting is just right. The artwork and the story make a very good combination, which is why I have high expectations for this one.

I most definitely recommend this, and not just to music or idol fans. Just give the first episode a chance. You may just happen to like it, just like I did.

Plot Summary: Otonokizaka High School stands on the border of three cities: Akihabara – a pop culture mecca that’s evolving by the minute; Kanda – a conservative, cultured city where history and tradition reign supreme; and Jinbo – a quiet area reserved for a more mature, sophisticated population. Amidst this culture clash, the school now faces closure due to the enrollment of fewer and fewer students.

With the school planning to close within three years, nine female students come together with one thing in mind—form a pop idol group to revive the school’s popularity and keep it from shutting down. “In order to protect our beloved school, there’s only one thing we can do…become pop stars!”

Their goal is simple: Become an overnight sensation and use their nationwide media exposure to promote their school and bring in a wave of new students to the ailing area. A simple but solid plan, they figure. Naturally, they’re nervous and wonder if this plan can really succeed, but for better or worse their new journey has begun…

“All we can ask for is just a tiny bit of support from you. We truly believe that with your help, we can change the world around us. We will make our dreams come true!”
