Trivia: Love Live!

  • Dueling Shows: With the second season of AKB0048 which both premiered in the Winter 2013 Anime Season.
    • The franchise as a whole with The iDOLM@STER. Interestingly enough, many of the cast members of Love Live have worked alongside iM@S cast members elsewhere, and Emi Nitta (Honoka) seems to have struck up a fast friendship with Eriko Nakamura, the voice of Haruka Amami.
      • One detail of note is that four of the supporting characters in Love Live are voiced by Cinderella Girls! Specifically, Those Three Girls Hideko, Mika and Fumika (two of whom are in the central cast for the Cinderella Girls anime), along with Honoka's little sister.
      • In addition to this, Love Live has started the Love Live! Sunshine!! Project, bringing in new voice actresses, much like iM@S has done with Cinderella Girls and Million Live, with a lot of the Sunshine Girls just as young as the Million Live voice actresses, some possibly even younger. Among the girls is Ascended Fangirl Takatsuki Kanako, an utaite who seems to be a big fan of Love Live (she's the one in the μ's cosplay) and iM@S (note the giant iM@S wall scrolls in the background).
  • Dyeing for Your Art: For the 4th Live, Aya Uchida bleached her hair to make it look more similar to Kotori's shade of ash-blonde, especially obvious in the video footage of the concert, where the color of her hair is even lighter than in these photos. This was said to have caused her much pain and damage. Nevertheless, she repeated it for the 5th Live; where Pile also dyed her hair auburn and Aina Kusuda dyed her hair purple, making them further resemble Maki and Nozomi respectively.
  • Fan Community Nicknames: Love Livers (No, it has nothing to do with the organ).
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Occidental Love Live fans (and School Idol Festival players) often call Honoka "Honkers".
    • Japanese fans often give Kotori a sort of fan-symbol of (・8・); it's meant to be a bird's face, since "Kotori" means "little bird". Aya Uchida, who voices Kotori, is also fond of the emoticon and has been seen using it on Twitter and in blog posts.
  • Name's the Same: "Lily White" is also the name of a Touhou character.
  • No Dub for You: Originally, the first season was released sub only in September of 2014. On April 24th, it was announced that both seasons will get dubbed re-releases.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content:
    • The group's name, μ's, was chosen from submissions of Dengenki G's readers.
    • Aquors, the new group of girls in Love Live Sunshine, also had their name be decided by fans.
  • Relationship Voice Actor: All of μ's end up as voice actresses in The Guided Fate Paradox. In fact, the game credits the actual μ's members as the voice actresses instead of their real voice actresses.
  • Hey, It's That Sound!: The background music that's used in the fashion show event in season 2 is actually Puwa Puwa-O! one of Printemps's songs. Also in season 1, when the girls go to a karaoke bar, and the instrumental version of Love Novels, a song from Bi Bi plays in the background.
