I watched one episode of Love Live when it aired before being perturbed by the CG dancing and crossing it off my list. Time passed and one day, I found myself in Akihabara, being shown around by twitter user @aliveinthewired. In one of the shops, he pointed out a card featuring Honoka and noted how eerily she resembled one of the Kawaiikochans. What he said that day stuck with me, and only a few months later I’d watched the show and wasting a ton of time with the stupid mobage. Now I know: Umi > Eli > Maki > Nozomi > Kotori > Honoka > Nico > Rin > Hanayo.
