Wonderful, yet wild night of performance!

In this topic post, I am going to talk about the event that I had recently attended! Also, I am going to post about my opinions and feelings for this screenplay! Are you ready, people?

Nijigasaki High School Idol Club and SIF ALL STARS
My custom poster layout for the delayed viewing event, as seen in my IDS Facebook Page post.

Most of their songs are well integrated with the LoveLive! School Idol Festival ALL STARS game. The intermission part uses the ‘visual novel’ style of the game itself.

Speaking of this newly group, they can be good or not when it comes to both singing and dancing on the stage at the same time. This is what I had observed last time. Well, they were just new School Idols which were about to rise from nothing to popularity. And, they are the future of LoveLive!

Pre-Screening Photos

As usual, freebies were given to the people who attended the screening event. This includes the postcard, a T-Shirt, and a poster as freebie merch.

Observations with the Nine Girls of Nijigaku

Below, these are what I had observed with the nine girls during their solo performance.

Aguri Onishi/Ayumu Uehara

Her first solo song somehow made the fans cheer, but not as loud as with the other eight girls. Her second song (from the Love U my friends album) wasn’t really impacting the fans much. I just noted that the high pitch of some parts of her song might be the reason, and she somehow got difficulty in singing and reaching the high notes while dancing. Well, it’s a part of every idol’s experience, and I know that she can still excel more in the future live shows.

Mayu Sagara/Kasumi Nakasu

Yay! It’s the kawaii Kasumin! Her song from the “Love U my friends” album is really catchy. Until at her song from the TOKIMEKI Runners album, everybody is just chanting the L-O-V-E Kasumin phrase.

Her song was picked as the encore song at the end of Day 2 performance.

Kaori Maeda/Shizuku Osaka

As she said, her inspiration is from Audrey Hepburn. That’s why her design was based and inspired from that mentioned person. Her fancy fashion, as well as carrying a parasol (umbrella), has finally touched my interest.

Both of her solo songs are likely either calm and mellow, since her character sign is represented as a ‘raindrop’.

Miyu Kubota/Karin Asaka

The audience/viewers were finally awake from their lack of cheering powers when she finally performed on stage! But not until with her song from the ‘Love U my friends’ album.

When I was driving with a car going to the event place, this song was played. Basically, singing with this song with feelings can make you cry a lot. I don’t know, but, I tried that by myself, and in the end, I can almost cry in tears.

When the next song plays, this is the time that our ‘tiger’ groups go wild. Due to the fact that the dance part is sexy, our ‘tiger’ groups had almost lost their minds! For the singing part, I think she needs some more practice since there are some parts of her song (second part) that she needs to adjust very well (voice quality) while dancing.

Natsumi Murakami/Ai Miyashita

It’s the Genki Cheergirl! Ai will cheer you up!

Basically, I have no other observations or comments on this one. Her performance was done and executed well.

Akari Kito/Kanata Konoe

If we have a ‘tiger’ that growls and do ‘yakkai’ moves while standing, how about a ‘tiger’ that lies down while doing ‘yakkai’ on the floor? Basically, they did this during this solo performance.

Her song from the ‘Love U my friends’ album, My Own Fairy-Tale got some potential. Somehow, I can listen to this song up to the very end.

Until when the ‘Nemureru Mori ni Ikitai na’ song played in background, our ‘tiger’ group lie down on the floor while doing their yakkai moves! Oyasumi!

Tomori Kusonoki/Setsuna Yuki (The Headliner)

The audience got alive when her solo performance has commenced! As usual, regular yakkai and tigering moves were seen here.

She is one of the girls that fans cheer hard on, next to Karin Asaka.

Maria Sashide/Emma Verde

Her performance was just simple. I can observe that she can sing freely with no problems while dancing.

Also, there are little girls who performed with her on the second solo song! How cute.

Chiemi Tanaka/Rina Tennoji

Rina-chan Board… Dokidoki!

No other comments or observations of mine had been made during her performance.

During MC or stage talk, her face is covered with a VR LED mask. But during her solo, her mask is taken off.

TOKIMEKI Runners and Love U my friends

Since almost all of the songs performed are from the SIF ALL STARS game, I got now an idea of what kind of songs that I am hearing in their live performance. This also include the CG animations in which they were present in the game, and in their live performance.

Closing Notes
The poster is now stuck in my cabinet door!

Basically, this is the only DLV (delayed viewing) that not many people went to watch. Since this is the first live performance of the rising School Idol group, the audience may be not enough. And at the end, the Nijigasaki High School Idol Club performed their best live show up to the very end. And they cried, also.

Several announcements had been made, including the upcoming URs of these girls (some of them were released already in the present time) in the SIF ALL STARS game, the sub-units songs, their first fan book, and the unexpected TV Anime adaptation.

So basically, it is not over yet. We do still have an impending LoveLive! Fest in which it will take place around next week. Also, delayed viewing screenings in some countries were already announced. So then, the hype for LoveLive! Series will never ever fade out. If Nijigasaki High School Idol Club’s first live isn’t enough for you, then LoveLive! Fest shall be serving as your ‘Part 2’ of your total enjoyment of the LoveLive! Series.

The Nijigasaki High School Idol Club is the future of LoveLive!

Basically, it happens when you dance to Starlight too much…

Thank you for reading, everyone! See you next time!
