The big day finally came after the School Idol Club figured out when to do the big concert. So how well does it turns out?
As expected, the live concert went how I expected. Of course, Rina’s helmet didn’t quite work out as it malfunctioned. However, it’s nice how she gained the courage to perform without it.
Not only that, Lanzhu, Shioriko and Mia, besides their individual performances, decide to perform something together. Sadly, we didn’t get the chance to see R3BIRTH’s performance, which is their unit’s name to perform a song. Then again, it’s a surprise after all. Of course, seeing that student council representative become all hyped up to see Setsuna perform on stage is amusing. I can’t get enough of her expressions.
During the intermission, Yuu receives a gift of flowers from her fans that Ayumu presents. After reading the message on the card, she becomes flattered.
What is surprising is that Ayumu said that Yuu is a school idol even though Yuu doesn’t so. After all, she only supported her fellow members. But, then again, she does as she gives others a thrill, maybe not from singing and dancing on stage, but through the songs she creates.
Either way, she becomes glad to think this is true. After all, she eventually comes on stage and says that their fans can come to see them if they need to cheer up. So, maybe hopefully, someday Yuu will get the chance to sing and perform on stage, just like Suzune.
As for the prologue, Setsuna gives the Student Council position to Shioriko. Also, it’s interesting how Mia uses Shioriko’s office as a place to write her own music. Lastly, it seems that Ayamu finally meets up with the person that emailed her. I find it funny how she says “Nice to meet you” in a stereotypical way.
Either way, this was an excellent way to end the second season. Sadly, there were a lot of stills, showing how busy Sunrise is jugging both this and the second season of Superstar. I guess their next real-life live performance will give the full version of the concert that couldn’t make it in the anime.
Like the first season, the second season is pretty much the same but better. It’s good that the producers decide to tone down Lanzhu’s mean personality from the game. However, it took her a while to loosen up and understand what the School Idol Club meant. While she tried to quit, I liked how Shioriko and Mia intervened and decided to join the club with her.
Like with this and other installments, there are a lot of fun slice-of-life moments. Things such as the sleepover and of course the festival. Also, it’s nice how each unit received its own moment to develop as a group. With that, Setsuna/Nana finally reveals that she has been an idol all along. After all, the intrigue of her secret identity is what makes Setsuna after all. This is a big difference compared to Dia, Ren, and Eli. They have no problem making their school idol activities public.
Overall, the second season of Nijigasaki High School Idol Club builds on the greatness of the first season. My guess is that a movie might be next like the previous installments.
