RABU SONG, MOGYUTTO INCOMING? LOW BATTERY, Ho. HAIR DOWN ELI, NOZOMI'S HOUSE, NOZOMI LIVES ALONE ;_; NOZOMI NO FRIENDS ;_; FLASHBACK TO NOZOMI MEETING ELI FUCK YES HOLY SHIT BEST EPISODE OF LOVE LIVE, SNOW HALATION IMCOMING?
Ok so I know I say this every week, but this week's episode was the best episode of Love Live so far. It showed so much in the flashback, and finally revealed Nozomi's personality and her motivation for doing everything that she's done leading up to now. Also there was an adequate number of NozoEli scenes. Ahh, my heart~
This was everything I was waiting for and more. The biggest thing holding Nozomi back from being one of my top 3 favorite characters was that up until this point, nobody really knew enough about her since she was so mysterious on her motivations. All that changed this episode, though, and it was really nice to see more of her true self. I'm not even sure how I rank them in my head now, I like them all too much! The 3rd years in particular are my favorite, though. They just seem like they're the most well-rounded, as individuals. It will be really, really sad when graduation arrives ;_;
Also, Snow Halation next episode is pretty much all but confirmed, as the words they're saying at the end of the episode are the lyrics to Snow Halation.
Order (My Japanese is sub-par but it's a rough approximation of the meanings):
- Honoka: Omoi (Thought/Feeling/Emotion)
- Hanayo: Melody (it means Melody.... why are you reading this)
- Umi: Yokan (Premonition)
- Rin: Fushigi (Mysterious)
- Maki: Mirai (Future)
- Kotori: Tokimeki (Excitement/Heartbeats etc)
- Nico: Sora (Sky)
- Eli: Kimochi (Feeling)
- Nozomi: Suki (Love)
Snow Halation lyrics:
[Fushigi] da ne ima no [kimochi]
[Sora] kara futte kita mitai
Tokubetsu na kisetsu no iro ga [tokimeki] wo mi seru yo
[Yokan] ni sawagu kokoro no [melody]
[Omoi] ga kasanaru made
Kuyashi kedu [suki]te junjou
Korekara no [mirai] ni mune no
With that out of the way, I do have to wonder... if we'll see Wonderful Rush? Excusing the pun, the fact they're actually going with Snow Halation would imply 2 things. Firstly, that each one of the PVs has an actual story leading into how it was made, and secondly, that they plan on actually following the sequence in regards to the order of the PVs.
The bigger question for me is, are they seriously planning to have a season per PV? As much as I'd love that, it seems highly unreasonable, given that graduation is looming. That leads me to my next question. Are they planning on having more than 1 PV per season? The next PV would mean they'd have to wait til summer, and even then they still have 3 more PVs to cover. How would they do it? Are they even going to do it like that? I have all these questions and no answers... I guess only time will tell.
