Time to celebrate another Love Live! birthday again!
Once again it’s time we take a day to celebrate the birthday of the former Idol Research Club’s president, Nico Yazawa. So before jumping into the wall of pics, let’s talk a bit about Nico.
As we know Nico was the president of the Idol Research Club at Otonokizaka High School. I say “was” because after graduating she handed that position over to Hanayo as she was the next person with the most knowledge about school idols. Honestly though for her personality, I feel that Nico comes across as being immature and insecure. She’s always trying to gain the spotlight and when she can’t she throws a tantrum which isn’t something that a 17 (or I guess 18) year old girl should do. Whatever the case though, I don’t hate Nico with a passion *glances at Tsuyuki* rather I don’t like her as much as I do with some of the other girls.
As we saw in ep 4 and 13 of season 2, Nico does have a family, something that is usually nonexistent in anime. Nico’s mom ended up being surprisingly cute too. I liked how in ep 4 we get some back story and depth to Nico’s character, showing her motivation for wanting to participate in Love Live so much. The first idol group she tried to put together failed, so when Muse came around this was her second chance to make that dream come true. While she had misplaced views about this, straight up lying to her siblings, in the end thanks to Honoka and the rest of the group, they were able to help Nico sort out this issue and everyone left happy.
Another aspect I like about Nico is her pairing with Maki. Yes I’m totally on board with the Maki x Nico ship, I really like that one (even though there are some very, very good Maki x Rin and Maki x Honoka pics out there) so I’ll support this one all the way. Nico x Nozomi also works well, both have very different personalities yet they still bounce off each other well and make for some interesting banter.
So in the end I guess you either love or hate Nico, there isn’t much of a middle ground but if there was that’s where I’d stand. She has her moments, but she can be very annoying as well. As for where she ranks in my list of Love Live girls… hmm, I can’t remember but it might have been somewhere near the bottom.
That’s it for the write up on Nico, I guess what you’re really here for is to look at some pics. I’ve got 50 selected, so please enjoy them. I’ll be back at the end with a few closing comments.
And there you go, 50 pics of Nico in her various forms. So that’s gonna bring this birthday post to a close, but before I leave you, I should also mention that if you play Love Live! School Idol Festival, don’t forget to sign in today because you’ll get 5 free Love Gems. So be sure to do that especially if you’re planning on going hard in the current Kotori event. You can get more info on that event in Deven’s post.
So that’s all for me here, the next Love Live birthday to celebrate will be August 3rd, which is the birthday of Muse leader, Honoka Kousaka. So be sure to join me once again as we celebrate her birthday!
Thanks once again for reading and I’ll cya later!
