Why It Rocks
- Adorable character designs despite looking a bit generic but are beautiful and nice to look at.
- Catchy songs,like Snow Halation,nominated as the best anime songs in all time.
- Nine likeable school idols with unique traits.
- Nico's siblings and her mother are very cute.
- It spawned internet memes like, "Nico Nico Ni!", Umi Sonoda's "Love Arrow Shoot!" and the poker face scene in the second season, etc.
- It has a spin-off, called Love Live! Sunshine.
- Top-notch animation, especially for the sing and dance scenes.
- Tearful moments such as the first live with only one audience (who later become their teamate),the moment that Hanayo decided to join their squad,and the graduation scene.
- There's a film version,talking about their story afterwards,also introducing a mystrious Japanese singer resembles Honoka.
- By all means,it had become one of the most successful Japanese anime franchises,as the live activites also goes well.
- Its success inspired BanG Dream! ,Renue Starlight,and other successful anime franchises.
- Repeative facial design, though not only the series is troubled with this problem.
- Eli Ayase might not be a likeable antagonist at first,while her background information turned out to be insufficient then. Honoka also performed incapable sometimes,though she's the leader of them.
- The show kind of rips off K-On! in a sense and makes this mediocre in comparison depending on who you ask.
- A-RISE,the main opponent team in the story,only had two songs and just one stage outfit by contrary.
- Even the upcoming antagonist,Saint Snow,had their own Live show,full album and Arcade Game appearance,while A-RISE did not had the opportunity to have any of them.
