Love Live! Nijigasaki Episode 3: The Setsuna Box Opened

Last time Karin and some former School Idol Club members asked Nana about the whereabouts of Setsuna as her name was nowhere in the student directory. It appeared Nana was out of options.

Nana says Setsuna is done

Nana confessed to her true identity and was surprised Karin, an outsider, figured it out. The other girls tried to reason with Nana but she was adamant about her retirement and said they could continue chasing their idol dreams without her.

Yu playing piano

After a scene featuring Nana with Ai, Rina and the kitty from the previous episode she later heard someone playing piano. It was Yu carrying on the tradition from Riko who inherited her skills from Maki though Yu appears to be a novice pianist. Nana asked how she knew the tune of Setsuna’s “CHASE” song.

Setsuna overwhelmed by Yu's power

Yu rushed toward her excited to meet someone she could go crazy talking about Setsuna with. Her cuteness was too strong for “Nana” to handle. She let slip about the new SIC led by Kasumi and her desire to see Setsuna come out of retirement.

Setsuna explaining herself

Nana then explained why Setsuna retired. She felt her passion to lead her team to greatness was too hardcore after the argument she had with Kasumi. She wanted to lead the team all the way to the Love Live! tournament. That desire to become the best to make fans proud, she saw it as a selfish desire to become the best. Nana thought Setsuna’s selfishness disenchanted Yu but before she could answer Ayumu arrived, giving Nana a chance to walk away. We saw scenes of Nana at home and in the seitokai office forcing herself to give up the idol world no matter how badly she wanted to continue deep down. She felt it was best for the rest of the club to continue without her.

Karin's sexy intimidation

Karin’s so sexy her intimidation is both scary and hot. Both groups came together to discuss Setsuna and Nana. Karin was like “You have enough members to bring back the SIC so I don’t see what the problem is. If Setsuna doesn’t want to come back then no use worrying about her” but everyone felt it wouldn’t be the same without her. Even Kasumi admitted her toughness wasn’t all bad. The question was how to convince her to come back.

Yu's harem power activated

Yu was like “I’m the harem protagonist. I got this”.

Setsuna, new harem girl

Long and beautiful scene short Yu got herself another wifey.

Setsuna back in action

Setsuna is a Mortal Kombat fan.

Before another kick ass Setsuna performance she told her new beloved, “You want Setsuna back in action? Be careful what you wish for baby.”

Nijigasaki Anata-chan Harem

You see this right here? This is not just fanart. This is the “Anata Prophecy”. Either her harem will only consist of Ayumu, Kasumi and Setsuna or all of Nijigasaki will fall victim to her cuteness. It will be a most glorious journey to see if the prophecy is fulfilled.

Next time OG Hype Girl Ai will get the spotlight!

PS: Kasumi has a bottomless sandwich pocket.

    Setsuna is hot. Dark-haired hime cut girls are one of my two top favourite types of girl. I’m so happy it didn’t take them more than three episodes to light up this sex bomb ^^

    I was fully expecting Yu to be only Ayumu’s girlfriend, but this is turning VERY interesting. Yu harem? I like it!

  3. Well three episodes in and we already have the student council president AND the formation of the club!
    Granted some of the girls still aren’t members but hey, that’s speedrun progress right there.

    As a Setsuna fan I really enjoyed this episode also.

    Really been enjoying this love live~!
    I dunno if we’re going a harem route, but I could see it happening.
    I normally am not as into these types, but Setsuna is quite a fun character!
    Should be interesting how they get the rest of the group together.

    Karin’s a cool beauty who’s very perceptive. Her being an outsider(for now) gave her a different vantage point on things.

    You know, I think Kasumi and Hanamaru could get along swimmingly due to Kasumi’s endless supplies of bread and Hanamaru’s endless stomach.

    Nana thought her drive to be the best was sucking the fun out of the group, especially after her spat with Kasumi Therefore, if she quit being a school idol, then things would be honky-dory, she thought. She was very wrong on that front since if she quit, then, like a Fire Emblem lord, it’s game over. The others could not go on without her. As a result, with Yu using her protag-tier persuasion skills, Setsuna Yuki’s back and she’s not going anywhere!

    Yu’s harem continues to grow! She’s stealing all the hearts around the school.

    Karin is sexy and intimidating. I like that.

    Nice to have all the school idol club drama worked out in this week’s ep and not dragging on for countless eps. They can set their sights on the next challenge.

    All of Setsuna’s performances must have fire and her kicking.

    Looking forward to the Ai ep next week!

      Isn’t it wonderful?

      She took the torch from Kanan who took it from Nozomi and carrying on the legacy of seductive azure school idols. As I said on Twitter I know Nozomi has purple hair but it’s close enough.

      Quite. Sometimes it’s best to get the drama done with ASAP.


      The Ai hype is real!
