Yohane the Parhelion -The Story of the Sound of Heart- (720p)

Another great weekend of lives has wrapped!

Aqours returns to the stage to become their alternate universe selves that they played in Yohane The Parhelion: Sunshine in the Mirror. Through each night, we were taken through a recollection of the major story points during the season, culminating in the (spoiler alert) defeating of the calamity that had been plaguing Numazu throughout the entirety of the season.

No major surprises this weekend, with songs from the show, Blu-Ray songs (some of which were unreleased), and a special surprise on the third day that may or may not have brought Aikyan to tears. Overall, it was a very enjoyable live that put a bow on what has been this series.

This upload saves an additional ~4 GB in storage requirements when compared to the 1080p version. Playback has been tested on the latest versions of VLC Media Player and MPV as of 12/18/23.

As always, please seed! Hit and runs only hurt others those who come after you.

Ijigen Fes iDOLM@STER x Love Live! Uta Gassen [720p h.265]

100 songs.

Two historic franchises.

What. A. Weekend.

I’ve been a Love Live fan since the winding-down days of the original School Idol Project, but during that time, I picked up the iDOLM@STER series starting with 765Pro and later Cinderella Girls. So to say this weekend had me excited is a pretty severe understatement. Albeit I know far more of the Love Live! side than the iM@S side, but getting to hear both in one weekend, and collabs across the two franchises, was nothing short of amazing.

What isn’t amazing, though, is the audio quality Stagecrowd gave to us. After going through so many hoops to get these (a DRM-protected platform for international fans, guys? Really?), I managed to back up copies of both days. Importing them to Handbrake to encode them in the usual H.265 MKV container I use, I discovered that the two channels of audio were given a measly 63 Kbps worth of bandwidth. That results in smaller source files than I’m used to, but also significantly worse audio quality than I would prefer.

At least the 720p version is 6 GB smaller than the 1080p version, right?

Audio quality aside, these two nights are a must see for fans of either franchise. And I wouldn’t skip a night unless you’re really a solo oshi of one of the iM@S idols, as there were different iM@S cast members present for each night. And minus a few songs, the setlists were completely different between the two, meaning different solos, different group songs, and different collabs (and some legendary ones at that).

Aqours EXTRA LoveLive! 2023 ~It’s a Mugendai☆WORLD~ White Day Concert (Day.1&2)

And thus concludes Aqours’ run of concerts until their next live (or extra live series) gets announced!

We got a pretty good variety of songs throughout these two days. Where the Valentine’s Day concert opted to go with the first solos, White Day brought the newer ones including the legendary “Cotton Candy Ei-Ei-Oh!” with cheers. We got more Miku, 1st/2nd/3rd year songs, and some of the funniest entertainment we’ve had in a while with the intermission and one of the D2 MC sections.

Apologies ahead of time for any quality issues. This was ripped from PIA, so we get to deal with the quality they provided us for the VOD.

Aqours EXTRA LoveLive! 2023 ~It’s a Mugendai☆WORLD~ Valentine’s Day Concert (Day.1&2)

Aqours is back! And with full cheering!

Man it’s tough to describe how happy these last two days made me. We got quite a few callbacks, some new performance (Miku!!!), and the usual Aqours antics we’ve all come to expect, but with such a high level of performance even for their own standards. The intermission was something else as well (if you can find a TL of it, I highly recommend checking it out. It was so dumb and hilarious).

Aqours 6th LoveLive! ~KU-RU-KU-RU Rock ‘n’ Roll TOUR~ Windy Stage (DAY.1&2)

WHAT. A. WEEKEND!

I’m not exaggerating when I say that the last two days blew my expectations out of the water and…god that was just so damn GOOD!

We got Kinchan playing the guirar for real, NEW YOHANE SINGLE, orchestral everything, AND A FREAKING GENJITSU NO YOHANE ANIME IN PRODUCTION!? WHAT?! I still haven’t come down from this live almost 24 hours later, if you couldn’t tell

Aqours ONLINE LoveLive! ~LOST WORLD~ [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.

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a re-encode! I totally missed that this came out and was a little late to the party as a result, but now that I have an extra device to handle encoding, the task overall is much easier!

This live was super special at the time, and we didn’t even realize it going into it. This was the last time we’d see Kinchan for a while on a live, and we got that GLORIOUS KimiKoko center shot, which absolutely made the rest of my year.

Again, massive thanks to Team ONIBE for taking the time to sub and time these for our enjoyment. Hopefully, my re-encodes (especially this 720p one) help you save a little space here and there.
