I decided to watch it.
It was OK but… some of it seemed a bit unnatural, if that's the right word. For example, while I'm as much as a funny face fan as the next guy, there didn't seem to be any subtlety to them (I'm being serious btw). Like Riko's reaction in the picture, it was super-exaggerated and unnatural.
The episode also felt rushed, I think because they were trying to introduce all the girls in the first episode. Hopefully that will fix itself once it gets started. Still, the beginning of the muse series felt more natural, I don't think they tried to give all 9 girls a part in the first episode of that.
Hopefully it gets better, it certainly wasn't a trainwreck. Riko and You are super cute.

Do you like Maki or Honoka? Do a 10+1 scout for a chance at a UR! You'll definitely get at least an SR. Make sure the scouting screen has a pic of Maki and Honoka, the other scouting won't guarantee you an SR.
If you like someone more than Maki or Honoka you should wait until they have a UR and dump all your loveca on her.
I like both and I got SR Maki. It was cool.
I'm pretty new so it was fun to replace all my N's with R's. So now the songs are a lot more fun with the idol skills going off every few seconds.

μ's would never survive the current Aqours era Love Live environment.
File: 1471920446224.jpg (150.04 KB, 1280x720, [HorribleSubs] Love Live! ….jpg)
They would still make it at the very least to the top 5. You're forgetting μ's had people with credibility in a number of skills. Kotori is so good at costume design she was scouted for a grant abroad (she also was a famous charisma maid). Eri has experience in dancing and knows what exercises they should do to get their body in shape. Maki is an award-winning songwriter. Umi was born to inherit a traditional dancing dojo so she knows about choreography, and Rin is extremely athletic, even on a national level. They have the required skillset. And I'm not even getting into all those other secondary skills that are mentioned in character bios outside the anime.
Think about it. Aqours doesn't even have half of that and they made it to the top 100 just because they created a nice PV. They're currently scraping by with You making costumes simply because she has a thing for uniforms, as well as doubling as choreographer because she can spot good form in divers (granted she, apparently, is good enough to make it to the japanese national team). The only training they do is based on what Chika knows about μ's training and we don't know anything about Riko's accomplishments except that she loves playing piano and everyone had high expectations of her. Besides Riko (and MAYBE You's athleticism), they have no skills that properly translate into idol skills.

Body was too long…>>5690
A-RISE said it best when talking about μ's. It's extremely rare for a group of people of skill in such diverse areas, all associated with song and dance, to come together. I doubt that has changed along the years, specially when groups as small as Saint Snow make it to the top 10.
This is all assuming school idols are still a relatively grassroots thing and that there's no production agencies cutting backroom deals and producing school idols.
File: 1471962868286.jpg (500.79 KB, 850x1261, __kurosawa_ruby_love_live_….jpg)
But like Dia said they were up against a much smaller competition. The live in Tokyo just to enter the Love Live was a bigger event than the Love Live itself was in μ's time.
Also "same old" idol songs aren't going to cut it anymore, like it did 5 years ago. Saint Snow's sound was fresh and new. Riko needs a miracle.
You can't really justify nonsense. Here's an example when you mention Kotori being scouted to study abroad. Like where? Just no, this is so stupid. There are no foreign fashion schools that scout you because you can make a few costumes or cosplay. Also no other country has that kind of subculture would accept typical idol costumes as remotely good. So she basically has to go to a fictional second Japan. Worse still is she's not even going to Bunka, not even Bunka would scout her. That just isn't how these things work at all.
So we've established that Kotori being scouted is dumb and only works in a cheap narrative. What prevents Sunrise from pulling other dumb stuff from out of their butts?
Riko is a musical genius.
You is a fashion god.
Kanan is an expert at deep sea diving dancing which makes her ultimate dancer.
Mari is rich and worldly and appeals to all over the world.
Yoshiko has amazing popularity and is asked to star in Hollywood movies as a devil queen.
See you can make dumb stuff up all day.
Until they win and suddenly they're super talented?
I wonder if you even know how bad anime plots work.
File: 1472086627117.jpg (299.05 KB, 1904x2359, 1471710185274.jpg)
The amount of competition doesn't matter, it's quality that does. μ's was equipped with all the tools they needed right off the bat to become a top 50 group in this era and the addition of Eri made them top 5 material. I highly doubt many of the other groups have as diversified a skillset as μ's had. It's simply impossible for school idol groups composed of 2 or 3 people to have that much talent. Unless we've entered an era where producers are managing school idol groups or things are so complex school idol groups have their own clubs where only a couple of people go on stage while there's a whole club of people (including supervisor teachers) supporting them from the sidelines with songwriting, dance training, choreography, etc. or even whole groups with dozens of people. We don't know if that's the case yet, but a group like Saint Snow reaching the top 10 is a good indication not much has changed.
Saint Snow's song doesn't sound much different from the stuff A-RISE was putting out. When Daiya said "that's not enough anymore", she was talking about success coming from just pleasing the audience. We know groups like A-RISE and μ's did much more than that. A-RISE had a ton of charisma that made people look up to them and μ's had a drive that made people create an emotional bond with them. μ's and A-RISE would definitely still be successful in sunshine's era, though it's debatable whether or not they'd be able to win.
File: 1472086745835.jpg (228.59 KB, 1920x1747, 1471709934626.jpg)
Kotori had a pre-established interest in costume design. She applied that to her school idol activities. That is also the case for everyone else I mentioned. They didn't develop their specific skills as they became more involved with their school idol activities, they had them before they formed/joined the group.
>What prevents Sunrise from pulling other dumb stuff from out of their butts?
Again, this wasn't the case with μ's at all. The five I mentioned were talented at certain skills and there was even a buildup of exposition at least as far as Maki and definitely Eri are concerned. The whole reason why Eri didn't acknowledge them was because she was a talented dancer who considered their efforts equal to those of amateurs.
Aqours is still missing a proper dance instructor (who is probably going to be Daiya, also doubling as songwriter), a lyrics writer (probably Daiya too, maybe Hanamaru), a physical trainer (Kanan seems to be primed for that from what we've been shown) and a custom designer (this will probably be a collaborative effort by You, Yoshiko and Mari). With all those points currently being shabby at best, they got to the national top 100 and reached 30th place in a competition with former love live winners and other breakout groups.
μ's would be fine.
Come on I know you can't be that dumb so try to look at it objectively. The whole plot of Love Live was that they were ordinary girls, the Japanese love those stories. Maki was a musical talent? So is Riko. Eri didn't acknowledge them? Neither does Dia nor Kanan. Do you even remember the original's first live was to like 4 students who bothered coming? Sunshines got the entire school from the get go.
The story of Love Live is basically random stuff they make up as they go along. Aquors are all clones of the previous generation with a few of their character traits remixed.
Wow that must have upset you so much haha.>mad at anime
Why would anyone get mad at anime? Maybe if you took it way too seriously, that's probably something you do huh.
So if I say it's funny that predictably the new Love Live turns out into the same old Mary Sue plot I'm embarrassing? (which it is, predictably and that's funny)
You put too much effort into this.

I don't like mary sue because its a weird word. Like is someone a mary sue because at the point we meet them in the story they are already incompetent instead of a blithering retard?
Then you have people who call characters mary sues because they don't face "enough" hardships on their way to success. And then they set their criteria at like, Ulysses levels of struggles before finally succeeding, which is just unrealistic.
I dont know how much any of this applies to sunshit because i don't watch this garbage bring back muses
Are you sure it isn't you?
A mary sue isn't every character that faces less adversity than the protaganist of the Revenant.
Mary sues are characters who excel at (almost) everything and face little adversity. 3/4 of the show was spent just trying to convince all the members to join.
>Mary Sue stories—the adventures of the youngest and smartest ever person to graduate from the academy and ever get a commission at such a tender age. Usually characterized by unprecedented skill in everything from art to zoology, including karate and arm-wrestling. This character can also be found burrowing her way into the good graces/heart/mind of one of the Big Three [Kirk, Spock, and McCoy], if not all three at once. She saves the day by her wit and ability, and, if we are lucky, has the good grace to die at the end, being grieved by the entire ship.
If you mean they'll save their school you're right, duh. If you mean they'll win love live (this season) it's less obvious, and probably not since they're just copying the original series for the most part
