Writings on Love Live! Sunshine!!
Out of convenience, and in order to make a few comments so that my articles can be better understood, I have decided to link all of them on this one page.
First of all, one may notice a shift in my writing starting with the ninth piece. Without going in depth, all I can say is that I strove for something that would give my sentiments their full expression: I will let the reader be the judge of whether I succeeded or if my locution has only become heavy and ponderous as a result.
Secondly, as my pieces are designed to “give my sentiments their full expression”, it should go without saying that they are not intended as reviews, for they paint my experiences just as much, if not more than Sunshine itself. I wrote them for myself first and foremost, and only posted them in the hopes that someone may find their own feelings echoed by these compositions, and be pushed to deepen, or at least sharpen, their thoughts. They obviously give spoilers for each episode, and as such are not intended for people who have yet to watch it. I’d go as far as saying non-fans shouldn’t bother: just as the fan I am feels estranged by the cold and distant words of the reviewer, those without emotional attachment to the series will probably feel alienated by the quantity of emotions I attempted to convey.
Having said this, I will not keep anyone from reading any of the numbers listed below. And to anyone who decides to do so: I hope you enjoy them, and at best, find me somewhere in there.
