The series that some of the popular seiyuus fanboy real hard.
I never really have an idea what Love Live! is. I didn’t even know that this is about a group of idol-slash-high school students before I started gaming. www Well it doesn’t matter. What DOES matter is that this is a rhythm mobile game and that’s all I care for lol.
In this game, you get to be someone (XD) who helps µ’s (pronounced as Muse) around. When I was starting out, I didn’t know what I was doing at all (I don’t think I already know what I’m doing now haha). There’s a story part and then there’s the rhythm gaming part. To unlock a song, you’d have to move on through the story. But you can’t continue with the story if you haven’t cleared a song (or meet a requirement) so they pretty much go hand-in-hand.
The tricky part is the raising the idol part then forming a team. You get to get cards (I think that’s how you call them?) of idols, either the main members of muse or ordinary students. You raise their levels through practice and your bonds with them through lives (a.k.a the rhythm game part). Now I said tricky because you don’t just get a handful of idols but a BUNCH of idols, like imagine creating AKB48. You also get to form sub-teams just like AKB’s sister groups. It’s @_@ inducing I tell you. I applaud Akimoto for managing 48++ girls lol.
I say that the whole idol thing makes me @_@ but I’m enjoying forming teams, assigning leaders etc because you get extras and bonuses if you max your idols and other whatnots. Plus I like the girls and their songs. I was once under the impression that this is mostly for guys but it’s enjoyable enough for gals too.
