My Predictions on Songs Set List
As teased by the narrator at the end of the Day 2 of the Aqours Online LoveLive! – LOST WORLD –, there would be a ‘Part 2’ of the Online LoveLive! event that shall happen. And yep, it has happened!
For my predictions in the songs set list to happen in the WHITE ISLAND online live, there are as follows. The first songs in the set which we are about to expect to encounter and to hear are the songs coming from their recently-released duo-trio collection album, the WINTER VACATION album CD. Another song to expect from them is the KOKORO Magic “A to Z”, which is, in fact, that its B-Side song was performed on the LOST WORLD online live last October. As usual, they might perform some songs from the ‘Over the Rainbow’ movie. And remember that their bonus song, the i-n-g, I TRY!! might also appear on their live!
And finally, don’t forget one song in which we never heard from them in the live before. The name of that song is… Future flight! And most likely, it may appear on their online live this December 30 and 31! Look forward into it!
And that is, my possible predictions! They might also announce some stuff at the end of their online live paid streaming, so better watch your eyes… and ears for this one!
The event, LoveLive! Sunshine!! – Aqours Countdown LoveLive! – WHITE ISLAND – shall be commencing this December 30 (7pm JST/UTC+9) and New Year’s Eve (10:30pm JST/UTC+9)! Look forward into it, and celebrate your New Year’s Eve with Aqours!
