The song begins with the lyrics “Mita Koto Nai Yume No Kido Oikakete! / Chasing the path of a dream I have not yet seen” and ends with “Minna To Nara Setsumei Wa Dekinaikedo Daijyobu Sa / If we’re together, we’ll be alright even though I can’t explain it.” As Takami Chika (CV: Inami Anju) says in the 1st episode of the 2nd season, she believes in miracles.

  • I was attracted by the first “Chika Shout”.

Everyone knows that “Thrilling One Way” is a popular song, but it was still surprising that a Blu-Ray bonus song became No.4.

This song features very passionate lyrics. Please check it out if you can still manage to buy the special limited edition.

….Before we move onto No.3

This web site “TPG WEB” is a new form of column, report and information site about anime, manga and game . We will feature mainly on TV anime “Love Live! Sunshine!!” and various information to animation fans globally.

We feature special contents from the real life locations of TV anime “Love Live! Sunshine!!”, Numazu City in Shizuoka Prefecture, so please look forward to it!

Alright, now let’s check from No.3 to No.1!

Mijuku DREAMER(21 votes)

The featured song of TV anime “Love Live! Sunshine!!” Season 1 Episode 9, “Mijuku DREAMER”.

Comments from everyone

  • I like the lyrics which expresses each members’ feelings straight without using metaphors.
  • When played at the “Numazu Summer Festival · Kano River Fireworks Festival” held in July 2017, it became a special song when it impressed upon me just how reality and the animation were linked.

It must have been an irreplaceable memory for the fans to watch Numazu’s beautiful night sky while listening to the song at the venue on the evening of “The 70th Numazu Summer Festival and Kano River Fireworks Festival”.

Also, it seems that many fans cried at episode 9 when the feelings of 3rd graders which had passed over each other’s heads for several years finally came to a conclusion.

Mattete Ai no Uta(22 votes)

The coupling song of Aqours 2nd Single “Koi ni Naritai AQUARIUM”.

Comments from everyone

  • I was captivated by how the solo parts exhibited each member’s different personalities!
  • Because it is a rare love song from Aqours!
  • Because it is a song about “longing” which is the driving force of Aqours.
  • I love lyrics that are positive despite the melancholy, that make me feel the elegance of adults despite their youthfulness.

I think that there are many fans who were surprised that a coupling song took the No. 2 position! Just as the reasons stated, many were captivated by the solo parts and the fact that it’s a love song.

Among the opinions we received, some commented “it’s a refreshing medium ballad fit perfectly for the sea of Numazu!” Feeling the wind while listening to the song at sunset in front of Yasudaya Inn (Chika’s Inn)… What a good idea! (lol)

Omoi yo Hitotsu ni Nare(27 votes)

“I got energy and courage from that incident at 1st live! I was moved!”

Some people said, “When I was going through difficult times and felt like I was about to break, I listened to this song and remembered what happened at 1st Live with Aqours & Rikako Aida, and I was able to do my best!”.

Also, the lyrics “Nani ka o tsukamu koto de nani ka o akiramenai / Hold onto something, and don’t give up on it” resonated with many fans and moved them.

It seems that the incident at 1st Live touched the hearts of many fans.
