Tell me Sup Forums. We're they gay or what? The thought didn't cross my mind when I marathon'd the series until I skimmed the /vg/ thread.

Only Nozomi is gay

Colton Thompson
Colton Thompson

No they weren't. A bunch of lonely, pathetic weebs ship girls together in shows like this, it's kind of par for the course. You can just ignore the yurifags though.

Adam Phillips
Adam Phillips

I saw someone shipping the Aquors seiyuu. The real life 2.5Ds. That's when I knew for certain shippers are fucking insane. They take stuff like pic related seriously.

James Price

Well, to be fair animators had been teasing nicomaki ever since the PV days

Camden Bell
Camden Bell

Yeah, I was curious where the heck NicoMaki came from since they hardly interact until the trip in S2. Looked it up and saw the PVs cited. I don't think these are considered canon to the anime though.

Angel Gutierrez

Wasn't this also during Love Live's boyfriend phase?

Matthew Ward
Matthew Ward

LL has weak yuri undertones, and even as a yurifag I only saw the relationship between them as pure and good-hearted friendship. Of course, given that this show has an all-female cast it's not a surprise why the fanbase will ship anything and anyone.

Jack Cook

Why is Nico black? Why is Rin a ginger? Why does Pana have saggy tats? Why is Honoka the only remotely normally-drawn character in this image? Why is Nozomi a lardwhale? Why is Maki a shitskin? Why is Umi a poo-in-loo? Why does Kotori look like a tranny? Why is Eli a 7ft tall skelington?

Anime alone is not gay enough. You have to indulge in all the franchise to see it's full gayness. Seriously

Drama CD's had canon gay pairings
They released a game that ouright shows that the girls are gay
Also, they released canon gay songs:
Garasu no Hanazono (NozoEli)
Storm in Lover (EliUmi)
Anemone heart (KotoUmi)
Zurui yo Magnetic (NikoMaki)

Even their promo arts are gay.
Pic related. The gifts are wrapped in the color of their partners

Umi shipped with half the cast
Umi was originally designed to be a suave girl hunter.
Nico was a playful little imp
Honoka was a brilliant student

And no, that's not Umi. Umi's hair color is too dark. The gift's colors are not based on the hair but other traits
It was colored based on Eli's eyes

Carter Brooks

No.
There has been a slight hint of canon Nozo Eli in S2, but they're all canonly pure.
The animators even took care to not even show the face or the voice of the only male character of the show, Honoka's father.

Lincoln Ramirez

Honoka - Fighting
Kotori - Fairy
Eli - Electric
Nozomi - Psychic
Nico - Dark

Evan Lewis

If you can say they are not gay after reading manga you have to have some sort of disability.

Nozomi is a fucking huge faggot and Maki+Nico have "something between them they can't explain". Nozomi quite literally also confesses her love to Eri in drama cd.

So yes, some of them are gay and this is not any /u/ bullshit.

You might as well say that Superman's laser vision and flight is not canon because it was not made by the original author

Jeremiah Watson

It's pretty hard to tell from that pic, but LL actually works well around the sameface issue because even though they all share a similar structure, they have really distinctive eye shapes from each other. No idea why they went with just 2 or 3 eye designs for Aqours.

Elijah Miller

Is the anime the official canon format or is this a case of alternate universes?

I always thought it was the latter since the game, anime and manga have so many differences that you can't just lump them together as one universe.

Meh. Just treat them like DC or Marvel universe
It's a franchise built by a decade long generation of various artists and writers, each with various ideas and what not.

It's the fans who decide what material is canon or not then the industry will feed them.
Also more famously referred to as "Death of Author"

Hudson King
Hudson King

Should be Umi instead of Honoka.

Jayden Allen
Jayden Allen

This is one of those cases of "the creators couldn't give a shit." The same situation is addressed over in the GuP thread all the time. The real answer is that nobody on the production staff cares about "canon" for a product like this. If they think that something might be funny or interesting in some ancillary material, they greenlight it. They don't see "canon" as a barrier to any of this. The whole idea of what's "canon" for a given franchise is something that's pretty much always decided arbitrarily by the fanbase anyway. Creators just do whatever they want, pick and choose whatever they want, when writing new material. So if you want to come up with your own notion of what's canon, go right ahead. The eventual model of the "canon" will end up being whatever's closest to a consensus for a given franchise. But it'll never be some "official" thing.

You can't ignore the blatant general gay atmosphere of this frachise. Not only in the anime but there is so much yuri tesing and romantic tension between the characters in all the others media of the franchise: manga, drama cds, official arts, songs, various articles in the magazines and especially the diaries! So yes.

Adrian Sanders
Adrian Sanders

which further proves that yuri can sell but only when it's not the main focus.

Parker White

That also applies to yaoi, het, harem, and romance in general, user

Lucas King

I think is a general Japanese cultural thing that you have to give "only" hints of homosexuality to the oudience and not saying "look this character is a lesbian" in a outspoken way.

She did a public event with fans a couple of weeks ago and there was a lot of people from her agency and security guards. Her twitter is still silent. She will do a live event in a few months (I don't remember when). I don't know much more because I can't Japanese

Isn't this franchise quite literally dictated by fans? There's voting opportunities for Dengeki G's readers and they can send letters. I'm not sure to what extent things are decided by fans but I've heard the group names were user submissions that were voted on for example.

The creators probably have the mentality of catering to every fan request that's proven to have enough of a market via side material without any care given to a single canon.

Henry Ortiz
Henry Ortiz

Some of them are, others are at least bi but will probably end up in straight relationships in college. That said,
The thought didn't cross my mind
You serious OP? The yurishit in the LL franchise is pretty extensive and not exactly subtle in general, come on. I guess if you only played SIF or something since there isn't any real story or characterization there at all, but becomes pretty hard to miss if you follow it any more.

You can still just ignore it if you want though, any romance would be kept under the covers so to speak anyway since idols are supposed to be at least reasonably pure on the surface, even if they've got rougher pasts or other stuff going on entirely privately. Don't let it bother you.

Colton Allen
Colton Allen

Yeah, like GuP part of the fun is that the creators just do whatever the fuck they think would be amusing and pay attention to what fans like too. Helps keep it from feeling too serious or commercial and keeps the fanbase mildly easier going too. Which fits particularly since the whole idea of LL after all is to be some cheerful positive thing, serious bzs would be missing the point.

Touhou would probably be the ultimate example of a ludicrously immense sprawling community spawned by extremely minimalist setup and a creator who just rolled with it and told everyone to do whatever (aided by the fact that he's a superman whose veins flow with beer rather then the blood of mortal men).

Nasuverse though would be another one where they've got some unifying themes, universe building and systems, but while having some serious, dark and philosophical stuff have also been pretty flexible about having fun with it too and bringing fans onboard even to do new works. They even have got Zelretch to act as an in-universe reason to make whatever the fuck they want into canon and also generally fuck around with everyone else on the world.

Andrew Morales

OP here. I've only just recently started playing SIF so my only experience with the franchise is the anime. At this point I'm chalking up my ignorance to the fan teasing and innuendos to just assuming it was played for laughs (the heart straw in Nico and Maki's drink) or I took what was given at face value (Nozomi's closeness to Eli) and never gave it much thought. I guess I was in the mood for a heartwarming/'best friends forever' anime and focused only on that aspect

That, or I'm just dense as fuck. Likely the latter.

William Morris
William Morris

Chill, it's just subtext. Love Live was made to pander to both yurifags and waifufags so nothing is set in stone. Don't let people claim that their sexuality is set in stone and have fun. Also, play the japanese SIF, it's miles better

Easton Harris
Easton Harris

Then maybe we're both dense as fuck. I agree with your post completely, especially the "not giving it much thought" part. I also simply dislike shipping, which may be strange because some people say that there's no point in watching Love Live when you don't have your favorite characters to ship and masturbate to. Sure Nozomi may be a lesbian, but character's sexual preferences and it's relationships with the others are two different things. And discussing which pairing is the best triggers the shit out of me. What's your ID?

William Kelly

Benjamin Price

Love Live feels to me like animated Disney movies with the musical interludes inside a story, and the broad appeal beyond idol otaku. The anime itself is sanitary enough to reach all those people. You could say the thing that makes Japan a country superior to ours is their readiness to sexualize these innocent teenagers in numerous ways beyond the main production.

I bet the female fans never notice the raibus have some of the sexiest legs in all of anime.

Adrian Brown
Adrian Brown

Tempting but I have too much time and effort put into the ENG version and having both seems rather redundant. Besides, I hear we're getting the JPN format soon. Maybe. Hopefully...

I'll be honest, I didn't even get a lesbian vibe from Nozomi even with the whole 'parfait' thing with Eli until someone broke it down for me like I was a three year old. I honestly took that as the two treating each other to cheer each other up 'cause hey, I've treated friends out to cheer them up because that's what friends do.

Ayden Bailey

Agree with other user though, first and foremost they're idols so whomever they like is pretty irrelevant. Even if Nozomi and a few others are hard gay, it has zero practical difference vs guys because outright romance of any kind will never happen outside of doujins. They're meant to stay more pure.

I also simply dislike shipping
Normally I agree but the LL fanbase in general seems pretty chill about it compared to others. There are some pairings that have more official teasing then others, but really anyone can match up with pretty much anyone and there doesn't seem to be much combat over it, at least relatively speaking, obviously it's still the internet and somebody will fight over it. I guess there are a few that would be more out there, I don't think I've ever seen Honoka/Nico for example and can't even really imagine how that'd work. Actually now I kind of want to see someone try just for the sheer creativity of it.

Ethan Long

Don't bring porn into the argument if you will dismiss it first. The anime didn't have males both to appease yurifags and waifufags which are two of the same kind of disgusting purityfags, don't delude yourself. I think I already had this argument with you or an at least as delusional person.

Thomas Scott

I wonder if the requirement for idols to remain romantically uncommitted is holding back a style of pop music that's objectively superior to what we have in the west. So many people will never hear the world's best music because the fans are too creepy.

It does help though, idols have a much better image in Japan than they do in the US and their promotion of slutery

I don't know what it is with idols and armpits but they're always fucking showing them off. And I fucking love it.

The dances require them to do a lot of poses many of which require raised arms. Combine that with often sideless costumes and there you go.

Rin / Hanayo are marketed towards women.

Rin- Girl who has trouble accepting her feminine side
So basically they're intrinsically shit compared to the other succubi by design.

Umi can do martial arts and Japanese dancE, she looks great in pantskirts and kimonos, and looks quite dashing with her long, pitch-black hair. It’s no wonder that the younger girls always get excited and start screaming whenever they see Umi. Umi’s a confident and attractive girl – she’s “invincible”.

However –

I often catch myself thinking –

It’s awkward to say it out aloud. But let me just tell you this in secret.

Well, compared to the word “invincible”, doesn’t “rarely defeated” suit Umi better? Ah ah, if she knew that I had thoughts like that, she would surely kill me, but, Umi – I’m sorry. I can’t stop my imagination. Compared to a dashingly dressed Umi who clenches her fists and proclaims victory, a dejected Umi who is on her knees with both hands on the floor and tearfully admits “I lost…” is so much more attractive, so much more outstanding, so much prettier –

It makes my heart race so much faster

In my opinion, that Umi is as pretty as a picture!

The Kotori who watches Umi’s archery competitions with thoughts like that is a very messed up person, isn’t she?

Even if it’s only once, I want to experience what it feels like to be by Umi’s side when she bursts into tears. Although that’s how I feel, Umi is rarely defeated, and even if she is defeated, her serious nature will never allow her to lose her composure. Ever since our grade school days, I have never seen her like that, not even once

For that reason, I have made myself an “archery girl Umi” doll with some felt and yarn – along with another secret “defeated Umi” doll The doll of Umi, who is teary-eyed and dejected in defeat, is currently dangling from my desk lamp. It’s incredibly cute – you can’t help but to pet it. I had some fabric left anyway – ehehehe

I prefer sadistic Kotori more I think.

I listened to a bunch of Hanamaru videos so I could recognize her. She might turn out to be one of the best singers. I can't place the other two because I thought they would all have mature voices. I would have guessed the other way around.
