Love Live! S2 10: Love death

Oto. μ’s: Get laid, get paid.

Pon. That motto’s too good for them. It’s too purely, aesthetically beautiful for them.

Oto. Is this still the preliminaries? Are the last three episodes just gonna be the competition? It’s about time, I suppose. Also, I had completely missed where they beat A-RISE for the regional spot. See? μ’s is a much better group with much better music.

Pon. But with worse characters, for the most part. The A-RISE leader kid looks like a contract killer at the end. What I don’t understand is why, in the age of smartphones and Facebook and Twitter, we still get these shows in which characters talk about the end of high school as if it’s the end of an era, as if they’ll never talk to each other again … no, I just realized it. It’s because this shit is written by adults well past high school. They can’t help getting their bullshit nostalgia all over it. When you’re in high school, it sucks and you can’t wait for it to be over. I don’t know many people who’d disagree with that.

Oto. I was gonna say it’s because the transition out of high school is a big deal for teenagers, but yeah, that works too.

Pon. The transition out of high school is something you’re fucking hungry for by the time it happens.

    I have a running thing going involving Love Live and the X-Files, so, pretty sure Tsubasa is an X-Files character in that trenchcoat. (Honoka, by the way, is obviously Mulder, and Maki is Scully. I’ve given this a lot of thought.)

    Any show that deals with high school and deals with in the way of “everything is over after graduation” seems like this is the case with the creators. It is the last place where so many people you know and can see almost every day are congregated though.

    1. I have sympathy in the sense that working for a living and feeding oneself is a pain. If I remember correctly, something had made me really annoyed at nostalgia around this time. Probably Ernest Cline. But I do tend to be wary of nostalgia as a plot driver, whether or not that’s really the motivation behind Love Live.
