Love Live: School Idol Project Episode 1: Modern Disney Channel Corny Bullshit Material [Quick Look]

Love Live! School Idol Project Ep 1 Img0012

First Impression:

Honestly I wasn’t sure whether I actually wanted to even bother doing a “Quick Look” but….. whatever. I said I would do it, so I will.

I am going to be blunt here:
Throughout the entire episode, I wanted to just walk away. Why? There is no other way to describe this than what would be today’s modern Disney Channel Corny Bullshit Material. Pretty much this show has all the “Moeblob” you can get + music + corny plot. If you like that combo, THIS SHOW IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE FOR YOU!!!!!!!

The whole “lets become idols to save the school” scenario makes me cringe and vomit inside. I already dislike how over dramatic the characters are, and their personalities aren’t anything special. On top of that, the school itself- it doesn’t appear to be “Music Centric”. Honestly- if it were solely a music academy it would make a bit more sense for them to do this- and on top of that it appears (yeah yeah i know it’s early to say this since they will probably touch up on it later) that not until now – any of the three girls had any ambitions to become idols! This whole idea only came up because Honoka was inspired by the idol group that promoted UTX’s academy and all that jazz- making it super popular.

The music isn’t all that bad, there are a few songs I liked- but still, that isn’t enough to encourage me to blog it.

So with that said:

There is no way I am going to cover this on my own. If there is someone on the team who is interested in sharing, it might make it all more bearable to cover.

    I haven’t watched it all yet, but I got interested in this because it reminded me of Idolm@ster and AKB0048 (without the sci fi part). Does this remind you of Idolm@ster? I’m curious.

      Pffth, nope. Not at all. Not even a little bit. There is way too much corny bullshit in this one. On top of that, both Idolm@ster and AKB0048 made it very clear- right in the beginning that the girls’ were pursuing a dream to become idols. This one, hah- just came up with it on the whim for the sake of “saving the school”.

        Reading other sites, I love it how two people can have two different views on the same anime making me want to watch it even more.

    • Magicflier says:

      Yep, this reminds me of Idolmaster and AKB0048 as well! The reason that i’m watching this is because I really love these two. XD Idol/music animes have this weird charm to them that takes my attention so if your watching this for the same reasons them i’d recommend it. It’s a good change of pace from other genres

    This reminds me very much of the Barbie movies – which I do like and enjoy watching. HAHAAAHAHAHA I wonder if I should since this show is full of moe…

    I guess I’ll stick to barbies.

    Personally, i will give its at least 4 episode before judging.
    I on the other hand was already a fan of Love Live ever since its 1st Single so I’m going watch it all the way

    • Eva says:

      I typically go by the three episode rule for judging whether to continue watching/blogging or not- but this one was automatically a “NO.” for blogging, also I’m being extra picky about which shows I’ll be covering due to my Tendonitis symptoms returning. Despite my complaints, I will be watching a couple of episodes to see where it goes.
