You seem cool, and I've been planning on getting into Discworld soon, so I'm going to add you, if that's alright. No need to reciprocate if you don't want to, esp. with regard to the access thing -- I only give it because my blog is circle-locked from the get-go.

(I still have yet to engage with Love Live, which a lot of my friends like but which I just have this weird instinct to keep at arm's length. Is there any entry point that you recommend?)

badass_tiger: Charles Dance as Lord Vetinari (Rin on the beach)
From: [personal profile] badass_tiger
Sure thing! I mostly just talk about Vetinari anyway, and he's usually not a spoiler-heavy character, so hopefully I won't inadvertently spoil anything major.

Ooh, Love Live is a sprawling franchise consisting of quite a few different things, so it depends on what you're into. I got into it through the mobile game, School Idol Festival. It's a virtual card-collecting + rhythm game and I'm really into the competitive aspect of it. Of course, it's a very simplistic game if you're more into the depth that video games have.

The anime is fairly simplistic, but I absolutely adore it. It's just the right mix of adorable, funny, and heartwarming. The characters may seem a bit one-dimensional at times because the franchise does rely on magazines, the game, drama CDs, etc. to add depth to the characters, but the anime is definitely a great start. The manga is more plot-heavy and rather more sophisticated, though it does lose out on the lovely animated mini music videos the anime has. Although this only applies to the original Love Live anime/manga, School Idol Project. I have a lot of criticism for Love Live Sunshine, which focuses on the 'second gen' group, but it has its own fans.

And of course, if you love music, then there is a huge variety of songs of different genres, and each girl has a unique singing voice. They also mix the girls into smaller groups and subunits to release singles, and the diversity is a thrilling adventure into idol music.

tl;dr: I'd recommend watching the anime, Love Live School Idol Project first, which might get you more into the music and characters, and people usually find that the game continues to refresh their interest in the franchise after they've consumed everything else that has been released so far.
