Fanart for my favorite anime series, Love Live (yea the whole thing). Back when I was into another anime, Akuma no Riddle, I made a series of fanarts where I would match a pokemon with all the characters. I thought it would be fun to do this for the girls of Love Live but to make things more interesting, I would match them with a pokemon fusion instead of just one pokemon.
Yoshiko (YOHANE) strikes me as a ghost/dark/psychic type user and after watching the episode where she tries to adopt a "lost dog" she names Laelaps, I was thinking it would be great if I gave her a dog-like pokemon.
So I have chosen to fuse Poochyena (dark) and Honedge (ghost). Poochyena is my favorite dark type and I think honedge just looks super cool....
When I get more free time I may continue with the other girls of Aqours and Muse. Till then, I am open to poke-fusion suggestions or maybe NPC suggestions to match with each girl.
P.S. I suck at coloring so i made it grayscale lol
A while back I made fanart for Love Love, in the description, I typed out my thoughts on the show. Now that this is a fanart on the successor, Love Live Sunshine, I might as well share my short review on it. Is it better than the original? in terms of story, Sunshine's season 1 is better; however when it comes to season 2, the original takes the win. Sunshine's second season was ok, it had some pacing problems but yea overall it was fine. I never expected the second season to beat School Idol Project's second season anyways considering that it's my top anime of all time.
In terms of music, sunshine is definitely better. The girls of Aqours, in my opinion, harmonize better and have better singing voices overall. The songs of Muse kinda feel too generic. There are gems with muse though like snow halation but aqours really experimented with their music a lot and it paid off. We got EDM songs like Daydream Warrior, punk rock songs like Strawberry Trapper and Thrilling One Way, and other hits like my personal favorite, My MAI Tonight. No more listening to the banshee screeching of nozomi, the whiny hanayo and nico the rapper (I love them but damn they need to have their vocal cords to be blessed by the holy spirit).
Character? I prefer Muse more than Aqours. Maybe I'm biased but I like muse as a group more, the members are easier to sympathize with plus they seem to be closer. In fact, Aqours had a whole episode tackling how the 3rd years are so disconnected from the 1st years; meanwhile, you have muse whereby the end of the 1st season they're practically one big happy family.
Despite all this, Sunshine is worth the watch. It's got better drama and it was much more complex than the original. Nothing beats the simplicity of the original series though.
P.S. If muse does not show up in the Sunshine movie I will flip my shit.
