Love Live premiere in Los Angeles: Cry all your sparkly, weeaboo tears

If you are into anime at all, there’s no way you haven’t heard of Love Live, the insanely popular series that tells the story of a group of girls that saves their school by becoming an idol group, and gaining popularity by singing and dancing their way into people’s hearts, creating more new students for the small, failing school.

(Don’t worry, they are planning a new season, but it will feature different girls at a different school striving to be idols!)

DefectiveGeeks (well, just me…) came down to the press event to get some answers for us weeaboos. At the press conference was director Shinji Higuchi, producer Yoshihiro Sato, Eren’s actor Haruma Miura (dreamy, quirky, perfect etc etc), and Mikasa’s actress Kiko Mizuhara (beautiful, well-spoken, perfect RBF, etc etc.)
