Love Live! Sunshine Voice Actress – Rikako Aida writes “Do not resell!” on her signed bromide [ラブライブ! サンシャイン!! Aqours 声優・逢田梨香子さん][Rikyako]

It has always been every fan’s dream to pull out the highest rarity of anything.

One of the Japanese fans managed to pull out Love Live! Event Limited autographed bromide by Rikako Aida.

However, Rikyako specially wrote “Do Not Sell” on her autographed bromide.

It’s quite funny and at the same time dishearted by the actions of some “Love Livers” that made the seiyuu resorting to this method to gently remind the fans not to resell on any platform.

The original lucky recipient of In-Real-Life gacha mentioned that she will keep this Riyako Autographed bromide as her heirloom, so to others please be relieved.

Love Live! officials have started to crack down on infringed Love Live! products.

Japan’s well-known doujinshi retailer, Melon Books have issued a notice that they’ll be taking down and discontinuing any sales of Love Live! related doujinshi.
It is believed that Melon Books are following up with the addressed announcement by the Love Live! officials.

Melon Books have already removed the Love Live! capsule machines and related doujinshi books goods.

Currently, many doujinshi artists are puzzled on the “boundaries” of the infringement.

Originally, it was thought that the previous announcements were only for counterfeit official goods. However, doujinshi is affected as well. Continue reading Love Live! officials are cracking down on copyrighted items and doujinshi. Melon Books have discontinued Love Live related Doujinshi.

[Love Live] Sunshiner improper etiquette during Bushiroibu!

After Aqours live, most sunshiners went to play their smartphones, went home, threw away distribution items and cluttered the bins.

“Good work on the Bushira!
Some points for sunshiners to improve
・Don’t come if you’re just interested in Aqours
・Don’t play your smartphone after Aqours
・Don’t leave just because Aqours is over
・Don’t throw away other distribution fliers just because you are interested in Aqours only
・Don’t throw away souvenir towels
・Remember the milky call
・Don’t scatter the garbage around”

Some comments by the Japanese:
– I went to the Bushira but Aqours fans were sickly cold during milky and they were playing with smartphones.

-By the way, the reputation of Love liver, which had already went downhill, is going to fall further. Although the contents were really good, but the quality of the fans is really garbage.

-Rather than resting.
It was a song with no physical strength for the call.
Everyone was terrible.

Basically, it’s about respecting other seiyuu/artistes.

Pile’s thoughts on μ’sic Forever

Felt it has been a long time since I’ve written such a long blog post.
It has been a year since FINAL LOVE LIVE. The time has been going by so fast.
There were lots of interviews after FINAL LOVE LIVE!, and I thought there will be lots of opportunities to talk about my own feelings about it.
It has been a busy 6 years, but also a fulfilling one. I have gained lots of precious experiences. Continue reading Pile’s thoughts on μ’sic Forever

Mimori Suzuko has been diagnosed with a lung inflammation and reassures fans not to worry about her condition. [三森すずこ] [急性気管支炎]

Mimori Suzuko (Mimorin) has just tweeted on her Twitter that she has been suffering from a lung inflammation called acute bronchitis.

なんとまぁ、病院いってみたら急性気管支炎だそう。でもすぐ治る気がする!普段はあんまり体調悪い系のつぶやきはしないようにしてるけど、今回はラジオで散々ゴホゴホしてたから、みんなを心配させないためにもご連絡♪

“How awful, the hospital seems to diagnose me of having acute bronchitis (when I last visited). But I’m currently on treatment and is healing well! Usually, I try not to tweet about having a bad physical condition. I have been murmuring during today’s radio live, thus now I’m informing everyone not to worry about my current condition♪”

Despite suffering from a lung infection, Mimorin is still very concerned about her fans. And it’s kind of reassuring. Stay strong Mimorin!
Let’s all hope for a speedy recovery for Mimorin-san!

Love Live! Sunshine!! Aqours Second Year Interview「ラブライブ サンシャイン」「電撃G’s magazine」「Amusu Translation」

In the upcoming Dengeki G’s Magazine issue included the Aqours second-year interview.

The contents included Aqours’ Live activities and also a rare glimpse of opportunity for the second year to share their experiences during their participation of the Love Live! Sunshine!! audition.

LoveLive_Sunshine_Aqours_second_year_Dengeki_Ginterview_8.1_01

Anju inami (aka Anchan) was originally a LoveLiver (*this fact is something that was known to many people), and specifically a Hanayo oshi (fan). Anchan has been to μ’s Live before and once thought that μ’s was an elusive presence.

LoveLive_Sunshine_Aqours_second_year_Dengeki_Ginterview_anju_inami_8.1_1.jpg

Furthermore, Anchan was a fresh blood in a seiyuu(voice acting) firm for 2 years. Despite trying out various seiyuu audition, she was still not being selected.

When Anchan first heard about LLSS audition, she decided to give it her very best last shot in voice acting.

LoveLive_Sunshine_Aqours_second_year_Dengeki_Ginterview_anju_inami_8.1_2

Love Live! was one of her dream work, thus Anchan challenged the audition with the accumulated 2 years of experience, and even thought of giving up being a seiyuu if she were to fail in her last audition.


LoveLive_Sunshine_Aqours_second_year_Dengeki_Ginterview_Rikako_Aida_8.1_1.jpg

Rikako Aida (aka Rikyako) already likes to listen to μ’s songs, watched the LL anime, and also a Sukufesu(SIF) player like any of us.

Rikyako fell in love with Rikochan the moment she saw a picture of Rikochan during the audition.

Rikyako was once a transfer student and has many similarities with Rikochan.

During the studio audition, Rikyako directly voiced out her interest in voicing Rikochan. “Please let me voice act as Rikochan!”

Rikyako held dearly to her phone every single day till the announcement of the result.

Rokyako’s wish was granted in playing the role of her favourite character, and she hugged her mother while crying in joy.

LoveLive_Sunshine_Aqours_second_year_Dengeki_Ginterview_Saito_Shuka_8.1_1

Shuka Saito (aka Shuchan) first known about Love Live! through SIF. And Shuchan thought that it was impressive for seiyuu to synchronise with the dancing. It was really charismatic.

Shuchan has not officially announced her year of birth, but she revealed that she is the youngest among Aqours members.

Moreover, she was still a Joshi Kousei (high school girl) when she participated in the audition. It was unexpected to be qualified, as originally it was simply a simple motivation to participate in her favourite works.

LoveLive_Sunshine_Aqours_second_year_Dengeki_Ginterview_Saito_Shuka_8.1_2.jpg

Shuchan was extremely nervous during the audition. And because this audition will be Shuchan’s lifetime opportunity, she showed her best skills (*She has been learning dancing since elementary school), singing and dancing.

Shuchan performed the Honoka’s part for 「僕らは今のなかで」and expressed that she has memorised the Honoka’s dance steps for「僕らは今のなかで」 !

There are even more interviews with the 3 Aqours second-year members. Their feelings and desires about this Love Live! project.

If you’re interested, do remember to buy an own copy for yourself! (or perhaps even more)
