Love Live! (Japanese: !, Hepburn: Rabu Raibu!) School Idol Project is a Japanese multimedia project co-developed by ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Magazine, music label Lantis, and animation studio Sunrise. The project revolves around a group of nine schoolgirl friends who become idols in order to save their school from shutting down. It launched in the August 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, and went on to produce music CDs, anime music videos, two manga adaptations, and video games. A 13-episode anime television series produced by Sunrise, directed by Takahiko Ky?goku, and written by Jukki Hanada aired in Japan between January and March 2013, with a second season airing between April and June 2014. Both anime series and film are licensed in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand by NIS America, MVM Entertainment and Madman Entertainment, respectively. An animated film titled Love Live! The School Idol Movie was distributed by Shochiku and released in June 2015. A follow-up project focusing on a new set of idols, titled Love Live! Sunshine!!, launched in 2015.

Plot

Honoka K?saka is a girl who attends Otonokizaka Academy (, Otonokizaka Gakuin). When the school is scheduled to be closed due to a lack of applicants, Honoka becomes determined to save it. Honoka goes to UTX, where her little sister planned to go for high school, and sees a crowd watching a music video of A-Rise, UTX's school idol group. Learning that school idols are popular, Honoka and her friends follow A-Rise's footsteps and start their own school idol group called ?'s (?, My?zu, pronounced "muse") to attract new students. Once they successfully prevent Otonokizaka Academy from closing, the girls from ?'s set their sights higher. They participate in Love Live, the ultimate school idol competition featuring the best groups in the country. Despite winning the competition, the girls from ?'s disband soon after for their own personal reasons.

Characters

Where appropriate, plot descriptions mentioned below refer to the anime television series. Other parts of the franchise, such as the manga and novel series, feature some variations in the storyline.

?'s

Honoka K?saka ( , K?saka Honoka)
Voiced by: Emi Nitta[2] (Japanese); Marieve Herington[3] (English)
Honoka is a second-year student at Otonokizaka Academy. Her family works in a wagashi shop named Homura. She loves singing and has a cheerful and bubbly personality and she never gives up on anything, to the point of usually overexerting herself. She is shown to be lazy and reluctant to do work, but is highly driven when it comes to her school idol activities. Her hobbies include swimming and collecting stickers. In the manga, she was a part of the kendo club. She is the leader of ?'s, and is seen taking center position in most of the group's songs. She later succeeds Eli as student council president.
Eli Ayase ( , Ayase Eri)
Voiced by: Yoshino Nanj?[4] (Japanese); Erica Lindbeck[3] (English)
Eli is Otonokizaka Academy's third-year student council president who is determined to save the school. Although she opposes Honoka's plan at first, she ends up becoming the second to last girl to join ?'s. She is part Russian because of her grandmother, and tends to say the Russian word "" (IPA: [x?r?'?o]; pronounced horosho, "good"). She is extremely talented, excelling at academics and athleticism, and is able perform her duties as the student council president flawlessly. Eli's specialty is quilting, and her experience with ballet qualifies her as the group's choreographer.
Kotori Minami (? , Minami Kotori)
Voiced by: Aya Uchida[5] (Japanese); Cristina Vee[3] (English)
Kotori is Honoka's classmate and childhood friend, and is the daughter of Otonokizaka Academy's chairwoman, whom she closely resembles. She is known for having her head in the clouds despite holding responsibility as the group's wardrobe supervisor. She is very considerate of the feelings of the people around her, but also indecisive and prone to going with the flow. She later joins the student council and assists Honoka and Umi in taking care of their student council duties.
Umi Sonoda ( , Sonoda Umi)
Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori[6] (Japanese); Kira Buckland[3] (English)
Umi is Honoka's classmate and childhood friend who is a member of the school's ky?d? club, in which she is quite accurate. She believes Honoka is a little too carefree and undisciplined, but realizes the perks of having an adventurous friend, and usually acts as the voice of reason among the second-year trio. She is the main lyricist of the group. As the daughter of an iemoto mother and a shihan father,[7] Umi has expertise in kendo, koto, nagauta, shod?, and nichibu. Umi is said to be very scary by Kotori when her sleep is disturbed by others during the training camp with the members of ?'s. She later succeeds Nozomi as the student council vice president.
Rin Hoshizora ( ?, Hoshizora Rin)
Voiced by: Riho Iida[8] (Japanese); Faye Mata[3] (English)
Rin is an athletic first-year student skilled in hurdling, association football, and basketball. She is a tomboy, and like Honoka, has a cheerful personality but loses motivation easily. She is best friends with Hanayo, who she tends to look after, and has a habit of ending her sentences with "-nya" (the Japanese equivalent of "meow"). She has a complex about looking "cute" due to an incident in her childhood in which several boys made fun of her for attempting to dress in more feminine attire. She is eventually able to put the incident behind her with the help of her friends in ?'s, and begins to express her femininity more.
Maki Nishikino ( , Nishikino Maki)
Voiced by: Pile[9] (Japanese); Caitlin Glass[3] (English)
Maki is a first-year honor student who comes from a wealthy family of doctors. She is a talented singer and pianist, but is expected to become a doctor and inherit her parents' hospital, which causes her to refuse to join ?'s at first. She initially comes across as aloof and standoffish, but eventually warms up to the group over the course of the series. Maki is the main composer and vocal coach of the group. She later becomes the vice president of the Idol Research Club.
Nozomi Tojo ( ?, T?j? Nozomi)
Voiced by: Aina Kusuda[10] (Japanese); Laura Post[3] (English)
Nozomi is the third-year student council vice-president, and the oldest of the group. She acts as the voice of reason to Eli, who was the first friend she made after spending her whole school life transferring from one place to another due to her parents' work, choosing to live by herself in order to stay in Otonokizaka. She also acts as the spiritual leader of the group, and has an almost all-knowing vibe to her, acting when she knew things got too far and even naming the group based on events that were yet to happen. Although she is not from that region, Nozomi speaks in Kansai dialect. Her hobby is fortune-telling, and she uses it to quickly fit in at a new school whenever she is forced to move. Despite having a serene personality, she has a rather mischievous side to her, and is prone to groping the other girls' breasts when she finds them distracted or depressed as a form of "cheering them up".
Hanayo Koizumi ( , Koizumi Hanayo)
Voiced by: Yurika Kubo[11] (Japanese); Xanthe Huynh[3] (English)
Hanayo is a first-year student interested in drawing and origami. Her closest friend in the group is Rin, who she has known since childhood. Rin refers to her as "Kayo", an alternate reading of the kanji in her name. She has an extreme fondness for rice and eating in general, and is naturally shy. Prior to joining ?'s, she had poor self-esteem and was prone to giving up easily. She has dreamed about being an idol since she was little and her catchphrase is, "Somebody, please help me!" or a variation depending on the media. She later becomes the president of the Idol Research Club.
Nico Yazawa ( , Yazawa Niko)
Voiced by: Sora Tokui[12] (Japanese); Erica Mendez[3] (English)
Nico is a third-year student interested in fashion, and thus acts as the group's wardrobe supervisor alongside Kotori. She has the strongest desire to become an idol out of everyone in ?'s, and has tirelessly worked hard in order to achieve her goal. However, much to her chagrin, Nico is childlike in appearance and behavior despite her age, looking much younger than the rest of the group. Nico formed the Idol Research Club, but all of her club members left one after another because of her high standards. When Honoka and her friends ask her to have the club as ?'s base of operations, she is reluctant at first, doubting how far they are willing to go to become successful idols, until she approves of their effort and eventually joins the group. She has a tendency of acting like a big shot and constantly craves attention, but is deeply caring of the people around her. Unlike the other members of the group, she has an idol persona, and tends to invoke her catchphrase, "Nico Nico Ni" with an accompanying pose. After she graduates, she passes on the role of club president to Hanayo. Nico's three younger siblings are Cocoa Yazawa ( , Yazawa Kokoa) (Voiced by: Sora Tokui (Japanese); Janice Kawaye (English)), Cocoro Yazawa ( , Yazawa Kokoro) (Voiced by: Sora Tokui (Japanese); Stephanie Sheh (English)) and Cotaro Yazawa ( , Yazawa Kotar?)

Production

Since the first issue of ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Magazine was published, the editors of the magazine have hosted reader participation games whose development is directly influenced by the people who read the magazine. The project was first announced in the July 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, which revealed that the magazine would be collaborating with the anime studio Sunrise and the music label Lantis to co-produce the project.[17] The project officially began with the August 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, which introduced the story, characters, and a more detailed explanation of the project. The original plan for the story was written by Sakurako Kimino, who also writes the short stories for Love Live! featured in Dengeki G's Magazine. Original character design and illustrations are provided by Y?hei Murota.

Starting in August 2010, online mobile phone popularity contests have periodically been held to rank the characters, which influences the positions of the idols in the anime music videos produced by Sunrise. For example, the idol who ranks first in a given contest will be in the center position in the front row in the music video that follows. Other polls are used to determine different aspects of the idols, such as hairstyles and costumes.[18] Starting with the November 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine, readers were polled to determine the name of the idols' group. After the editors narrowed it down to the five most popular names, readers were polled for a final time, ultimately choosing the name ?'s. A similar polling system was used to determine the names of the three subunits: Printemps, BiBi and Lily White.

Reception

Anime News Network had two editors review the first season in 2013: Carl Kimlinger reviewed the first six episodes of the series, finding fault in some of the characters lacking depth and the use of 3D animation in the dancing scenes, but praised director Takahiko Ky?goku for his use of visuals and for giving a realistic approach to idol groups.[140] Rebecca Silverman reviewed the latter half of the series, criticizing the 3D animation and the characters not breaking stereotypes but found it enjoyable because of its charm and offering viewers some characters they will like, concluding with, "When you're feeling down, give this a watch, because if nothing else, Love Live! has its heart in the right place and only seems to want us to smile."[141] Silverman reviewed the second season in 2014, commenting on its tendencies to get melodramatic and lack of equal attention to the main cast, but praised it for fixing the problems she found in the first season and providing genuine emotion from its characters, saying that "it is a lot of fun and one of the most enjoyable entries into the idol genre, a position it solidifies with this second season."[142]

In 2014, Love Live! won the Anime Work Award in the 19th Animation Kobe Awards, an annual anime event in Kobe, Japan.[143][144] In 2015, ?'s won The Best Singing award in the 9th Seiyu Awards.[145] ?'s ranked No. 8 among Oricon's best-selling artists of 2015. The group sold over 800,000 music CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs for over ¥3.15 billion. This is the first time ?'s has reached the top 10 in the annual list of best-selling artists. In 2013, ?'s was ranked at No. 64, and was ranked at No. 13 in 2014.[146] ?'s was ranked No. 10 among Oricon's best-selling artists of 2016, earning about ¥2.54 billion in 2016.[147] ?'s is the only female idol group from anime that ranked No. 10 among the top 15 Nikkei Entertainment's Girls Group Ranking in 2016.[148]

Love Live! was ranked No. 1 in top-selling media franchises in Japan for 2016 and ranked No. 4 in 2015. The franchise earned over ¥8 billion in 2016 and ¥5 billion in 2015. This includes the raw yen totals of Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, music CDs, novels, and manga, but not video games, film tickets, digital downloads, and other forms of media sales.[149][150] In 2016, ?'s received the Special Award in the 30th Japan Gold Disc Awards and their second best album Love Live! ?'s Best Album Best Live! collection II was also chosen as Animation Album of the Year.[151] The group even dominated Tower Records Japan's anime CD ranking of 2015.[152]

Controversy

Fans of the English version of the Love Live! School Idol Festival game discovered that most of the homosexual subtext between the various girls depicted in the game were removed. In some instances, overt references to relationships between girls were changed to imply a relationship between a girl and a boy. Klab has since issued a statement on the controversy:

"We have reviewed the English version of Love Live! School Idol Festival in light of our gamers' thoughtful and heartfelt comments. Overall, we think that our localization effectively conveyed both the content and tone of the original. We also think that perhaps we could have done better with the translations of some of the dialogue. We view our relationship with our gamers are [sic] very much a two-way street: we hope to provide fun and entertaining games and are always open to feedback (including constructive criticism) where we can do better."[153]

An update released on June 30, 2015 made adjustments to the translated text to retain their original meanings.[154]
