William Shatner Came Out as a Love Live Fan with his Best Girl

It started with a random fan question that the iconic Star Trek actor replied to in just 31 minutes.


Some fans had some real feelings on his choice.


Shatner had his own feelings and a reason why he won’t be saying NICO-NICO-NII anytime soon.


It’s nothing new for celebrities to talk about video games or anime. But they tend to talk only about intense fighting or iconic shows.

For anyone not familiar with Love Live, William Shatner has just come out loving a super cute musical hit that has made millions but doesn’t feature any fighting or “mature” themes. In fact, the different seasons of the show center around groups of young girls who are trying to become popular Japanese idols.

Fans have begun bombarding Shatner with questions and Crunchyroll asked if he had a favorite from Love Live Sunshine.


Although, Eli is from the original Love Live series and the blonde in Love Live Sunshine is Mari.


So he’s either wrong, misremembering who was in the 2016 anime, or is making a high-level Love Live Sunshine meme joke.


All of this begs a few questions. How much does he really know about Love Live?  Does he watch any other anime? Is he just flying around to sci-fi and Star Trek conventions then ducking back to his room to watch Love Live?

One of us is going to have to ask.

Majored in Music @Duke, but realized that being a Jazz singer wasn't a real job. Now I spend my days watching anime and writing about the music industry. Glad to be in the new round of GB hires. Look forward to my coverage.
