Now that the girls heard the bad news, they decide to move forward.
Since its inception, Love Live School Idol Project have grown into a very popular idol-genre franchise. It garnered a lot of fans around the world with its story of a group of girls banding together to save their school through singing. Love Live Sunshine focuses on the successors of Muse, Aqours. Does it live up to the original series? Let’s find out.
A few months back, I shared my thoughts about Kidani Takaaki believing that idol boom will die and the band boom will happen. Of course, that never really went into fruition since girl band shows are not too different from idol anime.
Regardless, Bushiroad, the company behind the Love Live School Idol Festival mobile game decided to take gamble. They created a new franchise called BanG Dream focused on girl bands. They created an anime series to jump-start this trend. You might be asking yourself, did the anime succeeded in that goal? Not so much.
For a while now, I have come across an article about BanG Dream. It’s about a statement that Kidani Takaaki made. He said that “the idol boom that has continued until now is already finished this year.”
In other words, he believes that idols will make way for the girl-band boom. However, I am very skeptical of that for many reasons that I will share.
