Added DiffLines:

** A generic School Idol group named "George", considered to be one of the greatest School Idol groups to have ever existed.


** As in January 2019, the reveal of [[http://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/AJ201901280009.html a news flash of 78% of the Japanese in their 20s to 50s favoring legal same-sex marriages]] might have developed some hope to Kusuda and Nanjo becoming an official lesbian couple.


** Counting as both this and HarsherInHindsight [[YokoOhNo depending on]] [[VocalMinority who]] [[LesYay you]] [[NoYay ask]]; In the ''School Idol Diary'' novels, Umi refusing to get married and have a family (although she would potentially become Eli's girlfriend). Her voice actress, Mimori Suzuko, would eventually be confirmed to have had a relationship with pro wrestler Wrestling/KazuchikaOkada, and later married in April 2019.

** When it comes to [[ActorShipping Actress Shipping]]; Almost no one will see some voice actresses (Notably Creator/YoshinoNanjo and Aina Kusuda due to both [=NozoEli=]'s charisma and them wholesomely shipping with each other) being [[HeteronormativeCrusader heterosexual]]. And again, [[YokoOhNo it barely helped that Mimori had a relationship with Okada]].

* WinTheCrowd: As for [=NozoEli=] fans, the relationship between those two in the manga adaptation of ''School Idol Diary'' is pretty much praised, combined with the writer's wholesome afterword of supporting them. Whether that they're truly becoming an eventual lesbian couple is a completely different matter.
* YokoOhNo: The news of the [[https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20180113-00000005-tospoweb-ent 5-month relationship between]] Mimori and wrestler [[Wrestling/KazuchikaOkada Kazuchika "Rain Maker" Okada]] caused [[https://twitter.com/CyberSpace8058/status/952055505534427136 death threats from extreme fans]] and [[https://www.facebook.com/651482388258634/photos/a.651522124921327.1073741828.651482388258634/1830714357002092/?type=3&permPage=1 upset reactions]] from (a very small amount of) fans who hoped the [[CastFullOfGay voice actresses would eventually become a]] [[LesYay genuinely gay couple]] after years of [=teasing/queerbaiting=]. Like Oohashi's marriage, this reaction [[strike:pretty much]] died down after '''their''' [[strike:Mimori's eventual]] marriage [[strike:with Okada]].

Added DiffLines:

** Umi's [[https://imgur.com/a/oxrHrXH rather frightening smile]] ([[https://imgur.com/a/23lq3W1 sometimes followed by a frown]]) in both the second season's fourth and seventh episodes are seen as '''a''' lethally threatening expression of [[strike:her]] anger.

Added DiffLines:

** "MOMENT RING" being dubbed the "Final Single" is significantly more ironic after the announcement of μ's next single in 2019.

Added DiffLines:

** No one can decline Kotori Minami's generous request once she says the magic word "Onegai!" (translated as "Pretty please!"). [[note]]This originates from the first season's 2nd episode, where Kotori begs Umi to write the lyrics of their planned songs.[[/note]]


* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Nico, in episode 5. The reveal that she was in a previous idol club [[TeamPrimaDonna and all her friends left because she was too mean and demanding]] was indended to make the audience feel sorry for her, but it doesn't change the fact that she spent the entire episode stalking/harassing the girls, stealing their food, posting hateful comments on their video, demanding that they disband their group and outright physically assaulting them- [[IJustWantToBeSpecial all because she felt that if she couldn't suceed as an idol]], [[ItsAllAboutMe no one else in the school should]]. It's treated as a touching moment when the girls make her president of the Idol club, ([[FisherKing even the rain stops to symbolize this]]), [[SpoiledBrat when really all that's happened is that they became her enablers.]]

** Nico's birthday is July 22nd, which is the same birthday as [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Arle Nadja]]. Creator/EricaMendez would later voice Arle.

** Also Eli in episodes 7 & 8, for a lot of the same reasons as Nico. The reveal that she couldn't make it as a ballerina was again intended to generate sympathy for the character but it didn't justify her constantly MovingTheGoalPosts to stop the Idol club from suceeding. She comes accross as a selfish ObstructiveBureaucrat motivated by petty jeliousy rather than someone the audience should actually feel sorry for.

** In terms of fanart and memes, the crossover between the franchise and ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' is well-liked outside Japan, especially given the absurdity of putting ultra masculine Jojo characters next to ''Love Live's'' cute and all-female idols.
