Yes, it’s true. This is #4, folks. Not that I’m complaining about seeing cute anime girls rockin’ some J-pop. I’m not. It’s just that this the fourth video/preview, and judging by the plot-like bits they’ve interwoven into each preview, the anime` does exist and has gotta be close to being done by now. Come on and hurry it up, guys!

In case you don’t know what I’m blabbing on about, Love Live! seems to be a story of h.s. girls who are recruited as an idol supergroup. It looks to be loads better than the perv-o-rama that Idol Master was. The songs are fairly good, with #1 and #2 being the best, the animation is top notch, and there’s little risque material (a few camera shots now and then which are arguable).

Anyhow, here are the previous three videos/previews:

  1. Preview #1
  2. Snow Halation
  3. Egao Jump

Thanks to Doremi subs for all of the above.

We’re halfway through summer, so let’s see how the summer anime` season is turning out.

Blue Flowers (Aoi Hana) — Dropped. Yup, it’s shoujo-ai.

Sora no Manimani — Eeh. I’m barely holding on. It’s pretty shallow and spazzy, which is a shame. The characters could lead to some deep and interesting stories.
Taisho Baseball Girls — Fantastic. This is everything that K-On! could have been.
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 — Spellbinding. If you watch only one series this summer, watch this one!
