One of the magical things about anime characters is that they rarely age. Sure, for the sake of the plot some of them get a couple of years older as the episodes roll by, and we occasionally get a glimpse of their younger years in one of those flashback scenes, but we rarely get to see what happens to the characters at a later stage in life.

That’s the unrealistic part of anime, but at the same time, that’s where the fun is for fans as we’re able to use our imagination and come up with all sorts of scenarios we think is ideal for our favorite characters. Here’s what some Love Live! fans think their lovely idols would look like when they’re in their 30s!

Love Live! is a series about a group of schoolgirls who, at the same time, are pop idols. The sensational series that has captured the hearts of fans in and out of Japan is popular for a multitude of reasons, but one of them is the fact that the leading group of nine lively girls are set at the age of 15 to 17 years old.

The Love Live! girls


Each and every one of them are adorable, cheerful girls in their prime of youth, brimming with endless possibilities for the future. What would they be doing and how would they look like 10, 20 years down the road? That’s entirely up to the imaginations of the viewers, and the following is what some Love Live! fans think their favorite characters would look like when they hit their 30s!

▼ Honoka Kousaka
Running her own bakery, perhaps?


▼ Umi Sonoda
Quite the traditional beauty.


▼ Eri Ayase
A white-collar worker? Or perhaps an educator?


▼ And this is how she might look like relaxing at home after work or on a day off.


▼ Rin Hoshizora
Seems to be a loving and caring homemaker.



▼ Hanayo Koizumi
Another member of the group whom fans think will make the perfect wife/mother.



▼ Maki Nishikino
Working hard as a doctor.


▼ Who…smokes at home. Huh.


▼ Kotori Minami
Seemingly becomes quite the temptress. We were referring to the ice cream, of course.


▼ Niko Yazawa
The ever-dependable big sis her two younger sisters rely on and look up to.


▼ Nozomi Tojo
Is just as, if not more, voluptuous…



From here it looks like many fans have fantasies of these girls becoming good wives and mothers. Who do you think would make the best mum? Leave us a comment below!
