I've became a huge fan of Love Live! since last year, and I love it just as much as The iDOLM@STER. I first started learning about Love Live! when I went to the idol event in Anime Jungle at Los Angeles, mainly for The iDOLM@STER, and I get to cheer the singing cosplayer of my waifu, Hibiki! When I met one of my cosplaying friends over there, she cosplayed as Nozomi, and she typed "Nozomi" on my phone, which was the first thing that I learned the girls' names. When I went to the Anime Expo, there were some Love Live! products over there, and I got my picture taken with Honoka cardboard standing right next to me. I even have tried playing Love Live! School Idol Festival for my phone, but my phone is too slow to download more content in that game. I wish that I would get a better phone to play rhythm games like Love Live! School Idol Festival and The iDOLM@STER: Starlight Stage.
Finally, when I started watching the anime, Love Live! School Idol Project, I've been loving it so much, and like I said, I love it as much as The iDOLM@STER. Love Live! followed a much simpler story than The iDOLM@STER, because Love Live! mainly just focused on 9 high school idols getting to save their school from closing, whereas The iDOLM@STER mainly focused the idols to become really popular and universal, and there were a fair amount of drama involved. Love Live!, on the other hand, is much more straightforward by having Honoka trying to attract new students by gaining popularity through the formation of a school idol group in Otonokizaka High. Nozomi called the school idol group "Muse", and she was the Student Counsel Vice-President, along with Eli, who was the Student Counsel President, and both of them were the last recruited for Muse, so they get to have 9 members.
My favorite idol of the anime is Kotori Minami, because I got to say that she's easily one of the nicest person I've seen in the anime history. I love the way she treated her friends generously, and she doesn't get that annoyed by Honoka whenever she does something silly, although Kotori was also upset a few times during the anime. I also love her voice in both English and Japanese, because I love Cristina Vee and Aya Uchida, who are both amazing voice actresses and singers. I even listened Spicaterrible, which is such a breathtaking song by Aya, and I never got tired of listening to it. I also love Kotori's cute ash-colored, straight hair. Everything about Kotori is so adorable, and that's why she's my favorite idol.
All in all, I love both The iDOLM@STER and Love Live!, and I'm really glad that I get to be part of those fanbases. Both this and Otonokizaka are filled with nice people, and I'm really happy that I get to be part of them as well. After all, both of The iDOLM@STER and Love Live! are filled with lovable characters, and they get to make lots of awesome, upbeat songs.
