Love Live! Hasunosora Girls’ High School Idol Club 2nd Live Tour ~Blooming with ○○○~ (Hyogo Leg) (1080p)

All good things must come to an end. Sadly, this also means Hasunosora’s 2nd Live Tour.

This weekend saw the Hasunosora Girls’ High School Idol Club make their way to World Memorial Hall in Hyogo for the second and final leg of their ~Blooming with ○○○~ tour, bringing many of the songs they performed at the Chiba leg, but with some notable differences! We also got announcements of more LLLL content (including a cover series starting with Snow Halation?!) and confirmation of a 3rd Live Tour, subtitled TRY TRI UNITY!!!, beginning in November 2024.

Playback has been tested on the latest versions of VLC Media Player and MPV as of 5/20/24.

Love Live! Hasunosora Girls’ High School Idol Club 2nd Live Tour ~Blooming with ○○○~ (Chiba Leg) (1080p)

And thus, my dive deeper into Idol Hell continues.

We’ve officially included the first weekend of Hasunosora’s 2nd Live series in Chiba, where we got to see the girls show off their skills and repertoire, and with some new friends to boot! The three newest members of Hasunosora’s school idol club joined for a song and got to have an MC segment in front of the crowd, which is exciting!

I’ll admit that this was my first real dive into anything Hasunosora, having not been able to follow them until now. But if I wasn’t hooked then, I certainly am now! This week confirmed (as if we needed confirmation) that they’ve got massive skill as the newest group in the Love Live franchise, and have very much earned all the praise and adoration that has been thrown their way.

Love Live! Anime 10th Anniversary Orchestra Concert (720p)

It was a much different kind of Love Live! concert weekend, but was just as emotionally gripping and enjoyable from a fan’s perspective.

The 10th anniversary celebration of the original LoveLive! School Idol Project anime has come and gone, and with it came a symphonic celebration of the two seasons it gave us. From start to finish, we were treated to orchestral arrangements of many of the singles and soundtrack tracks we enjoyed through the show’s two seasons, culminating in a beautiful performance of “Snow Halation” featuring 2/3 of the original cast with full orchestral accompaniment. The event as a whole might not be to everyone’s taste, but regardless I think you should watch it. You might surprise yourself and end up enjoying it, too!

I’ve provided 1080p and 720p versions of this concert, as this was a major event for the LL franchise, and I want this to be available to as many people as possible. This 720p version reduces the total file size by about 2.5 GB.

Playback has been tested on the latest versions of VLC Media Player and MPV as of 4/1/24.

Love Live! Series Presents Unit Koshien 2024 (1080p)

I know I always open with this, but what a weekend.

I really hope the LoveLive! Series does more cross-series events because this was so much fun. We got to see each group show off a selection of their own units’ songs, as well as participate in some pretty insane collabs?

We got to sneak peek the new Liella subunit songs on D1, had a typical DiverDiva moment on D2, got SAINT AQOURS SNOW for the first time in years (to a massive crowd reaction as well!!), and (my personal favorites) Nonfiction and Deep Resonance collabs during D2’s extra innings portion. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Everyone killed it, even despite a couple groups being shorthanded.

LoveLive! Series 9th Anniversary Love Live! Fest [720p h.265]

All credit for subtitles and original files go to Team ONIBE and their amazing team that brought the original TLs to us.

Team Onibe has graced us with their subbing of the 9th Anniversary Love Live Fest just in time for its spiritual successor, in a way, the Unit Koshien, this weekend! This was one of the final concerts in the before times, before COVID kicked everyone’s asses and shut down the world for a while. It was also the last time I got to see a delayed viewing in a movie theater, so it’s a bit of a nostalgia trip for me.

It’s hard to think about at this point, with six group lives and numerous other activities under their belt, but this was just the third live for Nijigasaki, and their first real exposure to the rest of the Love Live community that may not have known about them. Their first numbered live happened almost exactly one month prior to Fest, so each of them performed their first solo songs from the Tokimeki Runners CD, and this would have been their largest live crowd to date (and still might be one of their larger crowds, if not the largest).

Aqours shone as they always have, with the first live performance of Mitaiken Horizon, the usual Aqours energy and polish, and fearless leader Anchan reverting to her superfan self for a few brief moments during closing MCs, shortly after µ’s performed Snow Halation.

And yes! µ’s performed a medley of their songs! It was their live performance as 9 since their Final Live in 2016, and it was so, so nice to see them back together again. The medley, of course, was followed by Snow Halation, and that legendary orange glow that accompanies it.

This encode shrinks the original even more than the 1080p encode published along with this, cutting 20 GB off of the original download and ~8 GB off of the 1080p encode size. This will be the ideal version for those with even tighter bandwitdh caps or less drive space to work with.

This has been tested with the latest versions of VLC Media Player and MPV as of 3/7/2024.

Love Live! Superstar!! Liella! 5th LoveLive! ~Twinkle Triangle~ (Tokyo Leg) (1080p)

Let’s GO confirmation of S3’s airing!

We have now arrived at the end of Liella’s 5th Live tour, putting an announcement-filled bow on top of it all. The setlist was more or less samesies as Fukuoka, so nothing really that notable to add to what I already said last time.

Of the information we did get, though, we now known the following:

  • New Liella subunit music dropping in late April
  • Season 3 broadcasts in October
  • That break in concerts I thought I was getting is no more. RIP my wallet if I want to keep up with these shows (I’ll probably have to pick and choose).

Love Live! Superstar!! Liella! 5th LoveLive! ~Twinkle Triangle~ (Fukuoka Leg) (1080p)

WOW!

The beauty of lives not tying into an anime season or movie is that you just don’t know what to expect. You could have bet me a thousand dollars to guess the song order for either of the days last night, and I would have lost every single time.

Eleven member versions of songs we’ve only heard with the original generation(s), subunit songs, songs we haven’t heard in a long time… we had everything, and it was amazing. I can’t wait to see what else we get/if they change anything for the Tokyo leg.

Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club 6th Live! I love You ⇆ You love Me (Kanagawa Leg) (1080p)

Another weekend of Love Live concerts has concluded, this time with Nijigasaki ending their two-stop, four-day 6th Live.

This weekend saw a new set of solo songs, some oldies-but-goodies, Christmas songs replaced with “Happy Nyan New Year Days”, and one of the most epic returns of a beloved character we got to know well during the Unit Live era of concerts. On top of that, we got announcements for a confirmed 7th live, and a Switch Visual Novel from Bushiroad that I HOPE gets formal localizations outside of Japan. We also received news that the end is closing in on us, as they announced the first of three finale movies releases this September 2024. I’m not ready to begin bringing Nijigasaki to a close, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the ride so far and plan on seeing this through to the end.

Compression of the files didn’t make all that difference from the raw original, but it lopped off a few GB total, at least, and cut out the non-live extra stuff.

Playback has been tested on the latest versions of VLC Media Player and MPV as of 1/15/23.
