Love Live! Ep 3 – First Live!

Well, this week’s Love Live blew past really quickly (or at least it felt like that to me). I guess it was mainly because of the anticipation for Muse’s First Live!!

Nobody said it was gonna be a full house...

Of course, everything couldn’t possibly go too smoothly for the newly formed idol group. However, one thing is certain, they are one step closer to getting their other 6 members as the ones who watched that live (excluding the classmates who helped out), are, as you should know by now, the future members!

But looks like one is still uninterested...

Okay, back to the starting.. For one, I liked how they transited to the OP. Certainly, they would not play Muse’s version of the newly composed song right at the start, and leave us in suspense. And instead, they played the OP…

Such a spoiler.... haha

Such a spoiler…. Wrong song!!

Also, they really did a lot to lead up to the live (it’s supposed to be big after all). Like how Muse is getting recognised by schoolmates with three even asking them to dance. Moreover, their rank on that ranking thingy for idol groups went up, and the giving out of fliers should have guaranteed at least a good half full hall for the live.

You don't say... It's Akiba!!

And since last week Honoka and Kotori had their problems and training, it’s Umi’s turn this episode. The expected stage-fright problem was faced by Umi where she is bad with large crowds, or simply not wanting to step out of her comfort zone. On top of that, she also had a problem with short skirts (which was already mentioned in ep 1) but she could not be selfish, and drag the rest down with her. Hence she gave in to the cute costume…

Maybe i should have started with this pic to grab more attention.. xP

Finally, it is time for the concert and the empty hall did shock me at first… The deafening piano did well to make the scene really emotional. Even Honoka could not keep up her optimism and was about to break down…

Luckily.. Hanayo managed to escape from…

Rin, the... tiger?

Rin is just adorable. Apart from Rin (since day 1), I also like Umi, who is a lot like Mio from K-On. Both act the strict and cool one but get embarrassed easily. Both have strong singing voices. And both of their names have 3 letters! In my opinion, Maki is also quite like Umi, just that Maki has more of the cool factor (dang, its gonna be hard choosing between them). But we’ll see the difference in time..

Credit goes to Mimori Suzuko for her beautiful voice!

So… with all the hype over the first live gone, it is time for recruitment! Well, the name of the next ep says it all, “MakiRinPana”! So it’s gonna be the first years first…

Not sure what Pana stands for though...
