This episode we are formally introduced to Love Live’s most popular character (out of all the Love Live tags on Danbooru she has the highest number of art) and not to mention that she is Shinn’s current waifu, ladies and gentlemen I present to you the greatest Idol in the world, Nico!

What else you want from me, bitch? I can't twirl my foreskin like I used.

Turns out that even though they have 6 members, and Honoka forgot that that was the requirement needed to form a club, they can’t because there already is another club that exists called the “Idol Research Club” and it only has one member because you need five members to form a club but as long as the club has one member it can still function. And that one member is Nico, who is an idol otaku. She is a die-hard fan of idols and berates the girls for going at it half-assed.

I can see why people love her. That face is just begging to go "AHEAHEAHE"

So Honoka comes to the conclusion, with the help of Nozomi at least, that Nico is just very lonely and honestly wants to make friends but doesn’t know how. We thankfully get to see this through a flashback involving a loli-Umi.

G'DAMN GURL I WOULD HAVE THE MOST BOSS TEA PARTY EVA WITH HER.

So instead of forming their own club the girls join the Idol Research Club instead, this pleases Nico-sempai and she is now a member of the group. I can’t go against the current on this one, I love Nico (not in the same way as Maki though). She just steals the show and runs with it. Nico is like the Henry Rollins of Love Live, whenever she is on screen your are fixated on her and with good reason. She is cynical, snarky, obsessive, and overall misunderstood. She strikes a chord with many people because they have been there. They have been outcast because of their interests and seeing someone like Nico go through the same thing and somehow gets what she deserves makes them feel like they can get it too.

Back up. I almost sounded like I had something to say. Here’s more Nico

I still love Maki though.
