Just like last time, I'm back with another list that nobody cares about! This time, it's my favorite songs and costumes from Love Live 2nd Season!
As always, this list is not a "Best of" list so much as it is a list of my favorites. With that out of the way, let's get to it, shall we?
1) Dancing stars on me!
This may well be my new favorite LL song, not even exclusively for 2nd Season, but overall. Really catchy tune, I just find myself listening to it on repeat for days... years... decades...
2) KiRa-KiRa Sensation!
Maybe it was the fact that this song concluded one of the most emotional episodes of Love Live, or maybe it's just that good. Either way, this song really grew on me the more I listened to it, and that's why it's #2.
3) それは僕たちの奇跡 (Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki)
I gotta say, this song blew me away when I first heard it, and it was an instant favorite. Everything clicked, to the point where I think I may have listened to it a bit too much, not that I like it any less, seeing as it's still #3.
4) ユメノトビラ (Yume no Tobira)
Probably the closest Love Live is gonna get to having a "beautiful" song, I really like the start of this track. The piano into guitar is nice.
5) どんなときもずっと (Donna Toki mo Zutto)
Like with the opening, I fell in love with the ED almost instantly. It really finished the episodes off nicely, the only thing I didn't like too much was the giggling at the end of the full song track. Still a great song.
1) それは僕たちの奇跡 (Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki)
This is like the Wonderful Rush of season 2 for me, in that it has a great song, nice dance choreography, and an amazing costume. I think this is possibly my favorite costume in all of Love Live. This, or the Wonderful Rush outfit. Ahh, so good.
2) Snow Halation
Is this cheating? I mean Snow Halation has been around for a long time before 2nd Season... but hey. Still a great costume, the re-animated version was incredible.
3) ユメノトビラ (Yume no Tobira)
Really simple outfit, especially when compared to A-RISE's outfits, but I liked that about these costumes. So simple and pure.
4) KiRa-KiRa Sensation!
I get the feeling this outfit will grow on me more over time, and probably sneak its way up the list in future. In fact I'm sure it will.
5) Happy maker!
Okay this might be a surprising #5 pick, but let me explain. Dancing stars on me! had nice outfits, but I only really loved the outfits for Nozomi/Maki/Nico (the rest were nice but I loved those 3 in particular). I know the Happy maker! outfits are really simple, even keeping their school uniform skirt, but I still really like them for some reason. Maybe it's related to the fact that when you first see them is the same moment you realize that there will be more Love Live!
Oh, and before I end the post, it's Honoka's birthday today! I hope I don't oversleep and actually manage to finish my birthday drawing for her that I'm working on.
