A Justified Tier List: Love Live!

The Love Live cast "µ's" Clockwise from the left: Nozomi, Rin, Hanayo, Kotori, Honoka, Umi, Nico, Maki, Eri

The Love Live cast “µ’s”
Clockwise from the left: Nozomi, Rin, Hanayo, Kotori, Honoka, Umi, Nico, Maki, Eri

In this series, I’ll be talking about TIER LISTS, mostly from visual novels but like right now, it can also be from anime. Really, the point of these posts is to speak my mind as to how and why I rate characters as they are. For instance, people seem to love Kotori in Love Live (the SIF poll confirmed it!), but I’m just infatuated with Maki and Nico. Anywho, we’ll start from the bottom and work our way up, though I would assume people already know who I picked for top 1.

UPDATE: Well, this song had pretty much redeemed Hanayo as a singer, and would have overtaken Rin if it wasn’t for how good THIS song is. Unfortunately, more of Nozomi’s mediocre (that’s putting it nicely) singing has been plaguing both μ’s and lily white (the UmiNozoPana group) so the most up-to-date rankings are:

  1. Maki
  2. Nico
  3. Umi
  4. Eri
  5. Kotori
  6. Honoka
  7. Rin
  8. Hanayo
  9. Nozomi

More New Vegas, More Loli Androids! [Part 1]

We’ve all had our Follower Trains before~

A lengthy discussion with cousins last Thanksgiving about Skyrim and New Vegas has pretty much reignited my interest in playing both, though Path of Exile has pretty much taken up my time until recently. Sadly, Skyrim on Legendary is severely unbalanced when paired with rebalance mods like SkyRE and ACE. I’m getting two-shotted by most enemies. One would think this is just the NPC de-leveling happening, but when even those bastards in Bleak Falls Barrow are kicking my ass, it’s the difficulty level. I might give it another try on Expert or, Madoka forbid, Adept, but Legendary + rebalance = no go. Continue reading
