Based Yamakan actually saves anime this time.
Go watch the movie now:
Wake Up Girls! Senguku Battling Idols! Samurai Seven. The movie.
TV series: "show your pantsu!" and Goro making them gravure idols in ep 2
>all the speculations what the name means
>yamakan trolls everyone
Yamakan showing the gritty realities of idol "industry"
this was actually pretty enjoyable, although now i want rewatch all of akb0048
I wonder what BDs will have. The Producer sure knows how to promote newcomer idols though.
Watched EP01 since it finished downloading first before the movie did.
I am not impressed, especially the animation and the seiyuu quality.
The story isn't anything special either, but I'll see what the movie have to offer, hopefully it would at least be more digestible in terms of animation.
Main villain of the show detected.
Yamakan preparing ground for femdom doujinshi?
Most popular girl so far. Which is expected - dumb is adorable.
Her fanbase on /a/
The obligatory edgy one.
I didn't know the movie was actually out so I just watched the first episode. It was shit.
>amateur voice acting where the girls can't even talk to each other without strange pauses or sounding awkward
>dull colour palette that makes everything seem worse than it already is
>such blatant pantsu flashing it borders on the uncomfortable
Pretty funny how she went full into those songs
no tehe here
mfw Citizen Kane
One of rival idols is AV star
Are you incapable of waiting like 10 minutes so you can watch it in the proper order?
Kaya-chan a best.
This here, is sculpurose whore, that will suck dicks to get jobs, poison her rivals food and spread bad rumors - all to get to her goal and get rich and famouse in industry.
ITT: she is the only of them with potential to become real idol
Definitely the non-virign of the group
Ehh, I liked it.
But the producer inspected them all throughfully to make sure they all are?
Proper order or not, the animation quality and the voice acting is awful and you can't deny that. Is this what the best they could do, in episode 1 to boot, I'm not sure if a good story would be enough to save it.
That's the whole point.
The seiyuus voicing the girls aren't really seiyuus. They're new idols in training in need of publicity and debut.
Green Leaves is a real idol talent agency. Even the animu girls are designed based on their seiyuu's appearances and all of them share the same first names.
Worst girl by all means.
No talent. No personality. Cant sing. Cant dance. Cant even speak properly. Copy paste from IM@S. Fat. Only passed audition, since they let pass everyone as could not be picky at all.
Looking forward for her suffering. There is no Cinderella fairy tail end in this show, girl, unlike IM@S.
>9 animation supervisors in the first episode
Well Ordet's off to a good start.
So, is this worth checking out?
They were already trained by Yamakan, and yet they still performed poorly. Only a couple of them is bearable, the rest is simply...bad.
I love her qualities: cheerfullness, low IQ so she`s not threatening to Otaku, skills in pleaseing old men in her cafe.
>anime is saved, AOTY, Madoka and Monogatari killer
>first realistic anime since Tokyo Magnitude
>is it worth checking out it guys?

She`s the cutest
She has nice thighs for a thirteen year old.
does this mean that yamakan is "saving anime" again?
don't know how to read these moonrunes
I gotta agree with >>100026111 and that it still sounded awkward as hell even when they responded to each other. There were so many strange pauses and it was more like they were reading monologues than talking to another human being.
Why does the gluttonous girl hang out with old people?
Watch out for Yutaka "Yamakan" Yamamoto!

So are we all in agreement?
Love Live is the Top Gun of Idol Anime.
Wake Up Girls! is the Rocky of Idol Anime.
Why did Adachi become producer for Idol band? I though he hated women?
>first realistic anime since Tokyo Magnitude
Why people keep saying this, an untalented, cowardice, inexperienced faggots becomes a producer. That fact alone is enough to nullify this show from being 'realistic'.
And if you want 'realistic' the company should've filed bankrupt already and the girls would leave the agency.
But noooo, a single man is here to save the girls and bring the company back from the scratch.
what is im@s then? aikatsu?
Love Live is Disney Fairy Tail
WUG is Grimm Fairy Tail
They sold the company to Yakuza to avoid bankrupcy, next episode is about them whoring themselves to work out this money. Do you even watch the show?
So, WuG is IM@S rival anime? Dream C Club? Is that "in your face" to IM@S fans?
Dream C Club > IM@S
Is it implied that some of the girls aren't virgins?
>They sold the company to Yakuza
What? when? Where? All I know is that a guy named Suda comes in the picture and offer them a job.
And gravure shots is hardly considered as whoring and its pretty normal shit to do as an idol over there.
He's going to slowly take his anger and revenge by mindbreaking and whoring the girls out one by one and convince them it's their true nature to be whores and bitches.
Next episode should be good.
I want to protect that forehead.
Wake Up Girls < iDOLM@STER as Gen'ei wo Kakeru Taiyou < Madoka Magica.
Does anybody ever actually follow through when they say "if [bad thing] happens, I'll never do [thing that I like doing] again"?
I'm pretty sure that Fractile not only bombed, but bombed so hard that it turned you and your lofty claims into a laughing stock, Yamakan.
They performed hymen check on all of them before hiring them.
Would you the real life counterparts?
If I-1 Club is an AKB equivalent I cant see how WUG can compete.
According to episode summaries, it should be a beach episode.
I would Kaya
>would you a 3DPD?
IM@S - mindless fanservice to promote shitty Video Game, sweet fairytale with idealized idols and events
WUG - realistic masterpiece deconstructing a perverted by likes of IM@S and LL idol genre
>all but one of them born after me
>they're making something of their lives
WUG has the core girl from first L-1 Club cast, that made it popular in the first place.
im@s is the Saving Private Ryan of Idol Anime.
Just the right mix of melodrama and realism to sell like a motherfucker. I wish I could comment on Aikatsu, but I never watched it. Based off of absolutely nothing but screenshots I would say it is the disney's pocahontas of anime.
Well anon, why don't you put on a skirt and do a song and dance for fat neckbeards? I'm sure you'll get some fans as long as you smile!
Why would I watch about the shitty reality behind the idol industry?
Did not seen the summaries, just the titles.
2- Most gendle
4- Heaven or Hell
we're breaking a fractale
ahahahahahah oh wow.... AHAHAHAHAHA
>the I-1 club girls look less generic than the WUG girls
That's like saying a new start-up idol group with Acchan or Oshima Yuko and WITHOUT Akimoto would get anywhere other than being a glorified center girl act.
It really is snowing...
>WUG - realistic masterpiece deconstructing a perverted by likes of IM@S and LL idol genre
You mean a marketing stunts for Yamakan new idol unit that he handpicked himself featuring his self-insert.
If you still have any hope that this series then I suggest that you abandon that hope and watch this with zero expectations.
It would be stupid of him to ruin these unit images, and if he is THAT stupid, this is the last time we ever heard of him.
Am I the only one who felt very sorry for the poor wotaku guy who dashed in for the DVD right afterwards?
I could watch this all day...
>IM@S fags this buthurt and mad that their shit show is dethroned and exposed as fake naked king
tange best girl
3rd episode is when one of the idols is filmed getting eels stuffed up her ass and starts screaming about how she shouldn't have quit her day job, all because they didn't get a big enough audience in time. Crude but not unheard of in reality.
Not enougth pantsu
Guys I'm fucking stupid.
What's going on here, why is there two Wake up Girls episode 1? What's the difference? I watched the episode without ~Seven idols~
Where was this from.
>We'll show you everything!!
Seven Idols is the movie and you're supposed to watch it first.
..and one of Im@s episode featuring those girls in a shady game show where the cameraman keeps trying to get a risque shots.
Been there and done that.
>implying doing >>100024995 wouldn't tear up your hymen
There is a reason gymnasts don't "lose their virginity."
Seven Idols is the movie and the prequel. You need to watch that first to make episode 1 make sense.
As realistic as Saving Private Ryan was the main point. That's probably an insult to at least one of those things though. I guess I'll just rewatch both. This should be a fun weekend.
I like both.
Its parody on Dream C Club - IM@S clone that became more popular video game, since provided lot more fanservice
Yamakan is truly saving anime, one pantyshot at a time
How the fuck did we get a movie release this early? Did it air on tv?
Crunchy roll. Movie is basically just better animated 3 prequel episodes anyway, though it is screened in Japanese cinemas too.
So anyways, is anyone subbing this?
Or are we stuck with HS?
I always wanted to see an epilogue to Saving Private Ryan where all the officers involved are court-martial. That movie bugs me to no end, yet so many people hail it as some sort of pinnacle of WW2 movies.
>Dream C Club
inb4 shitkaku article from 5 years ago
As much i like the Director, i dont want to see doujinshi of her..
>they're much older
Yamakan doing it wrong.
what slutty ass idol group is Yamakan making? Those girls look like they could be christmas cakes.
SONS OF BITCH SONS OF BITCH SONS OF BITCH SONS OF BITCH SONS OF BITCH SONS OF BITCH SONS OF BITCH SONS OF BITCH
They look older than their ages.
what? they might look it, but its their real age there - same as in anime
Why is Miyu the best?
>mfw it's real
Being an idol is a dead-end career that normally ends by age 25 unless you're extremely popular, anon. By the time that they hit 30, they'll have moved from singing and dancing in front of the camera to fucking in front of the camera, assuming that they're still in front of the camera at all.
If you find your career between now and then, you'll probably be better off than most of them on your 30th birthday.
I missed about 5 minutes worth of the movie because I started singing that at that point.
No Crunchy edit for this one?
That bottom right is actually pretty attractive.
I like how Director woman says they need at least 1 person in group that can sing.. clearly stating that its irrelevant if others can even sing.
I bet she also explicitely forbidded to pic related >>100026046 to open her mouth during performances too.
I believe the most optimal route they can take is marry their producer-san at age 22 and quickly exit the idol scene so that the last memory the fans have are of this legendary, mythical pure idol girl and live out the rest of their lives as quiet housewives occasionally allowing remixes or compilation albums of their songs to be released.
If Rocky of Idol anime is taken, what's Miss Monochrome?
Isn't this the anime that Yamakan said was going to save Japan after the earthquake?
idol groups sing in harmony usually. The girls generally sound like shit live when they do solos without the power of studio magic. So just get one good girl to sing and have the other girls do easy lines.
It's going to help Sendai if I recall right.
Idols are 90% moe show and tell, actual talent is optional.
>Japan saving line
Well yeah these days you don't need to actually sing to be a hit music star, you need a good producer that can advertise you, a good composer to make you music for you, and some one who's decent with a mixing program or console.
...why don't i remember watching this at all in episode 1?
He used a pretense as 'helping the earthquake victim' in order to worm his way back into the anime industry. It also shield him from any criticism people would direct at him.
1rst WUG BD will include:
-ticked to WUG live idol band concert
-SNS game limited code for some bonuses
-4 videos of instructions how to dance WUG dances
-6 drama CDs
Lets see if people will buy it.
>some one who's decent with a mixing program or console.
I don't think that's needed either since most music is poorly mastered these days.
Someone shop "Deaf" in her shirt
>six drama CDs
this is going to be really embarrassing if he can't get it to sell.
Audition bits from Youtube.
Yes. It saves the Kanto region. All VAs are from that region, from the 2000 people audition.
type, its 1 CD. 6th item in order.
How many episodes will it be?
The founder of Encourage Films passed while working with Yamakan on Miyakawa-ke.
I bet Yamakan murdered him.
That's because they spent all the budget on the movie, which you were supposed to watch first.
I can't wait Goro actually fucking those Idol.
I think the guy chose honorable death over association with Yamakan. Who wouldn't?
The fastest and most accurate TMA release ever. Even the girls they hired look and sound like the characters.
>yfw the girls are actually the voice actresses and the start-up idol unit
>mfw Goro fucks the girls after their idol careers fail
>That's because they spent all the budget on the movie
The prequel movie is one thing, the anime series is another. Watching the movie doesn't fix the problem the series have.
In case you don't know modern music industry is not about singing. Pretty much none of the popular pop stars know how to sing.
They aired on the same day. I say the second episode will look a lot better since they're no longer splitting resources.
She hacked into my heart and then put it in a stomach hold.
Did anyone else find the pacing a bit slow? The first episode felt like I was watching it for an hour.
I kind of thought the pacing was too fast. It feels like we're already halfway into the show since they montaged the part where you get gud.
That's not how it work.
Pretty sure Ordet outsourced most of the work, this is more of a matter of a budget issue.
They've set out most of the portion into the movies and the rest to the series. If ep1 were any indication, were in on one QUALITY ride.
they outsourced the background and environments to Koreans which is why the anime outside of the characters feel soulless inb4 Seoul.
That song that they danced to at the end was so generic and terrible.
Why is every idol song that isn't iM@S so fucking generic and awful?
Is this a lame joke? Cus I actually laughed.
>Is this a lame joke?
they all have their own flavour though, Love live is completely different from AKB0048, and it's different from Aikatsu, Miss Monochrome, No-Rin and WUG too.
>Why is every idol song that isn't iM@S so fucking generic and awful?
Because they're merely the pretense of idols.
Both movie and TV are made by Ordet and Tatsunoko, without much outsourcing - only the usual: 2nd key and inbetweens
So problem with TV is likely budgting, and production schedule
Off to a great start, aren't we?
I thought you were saying that you watched seven idols and felt that the first episode lasted an hour, I'm not being mean. It is actually a bit slow paced.
IM@S songs are shit. Love Live at least has talented composers and production behind it, but not IM@S.
WUG thong is shit, but dance is great - as expected of Yamakan
>I say the second episode will look a lot better since they're no longer splitting resources.
The magazine staff listings showed 1 animation directors on the first episode but the episode credits actually listed 9. The episode 2 listing showed 6 ADs, now imagine how it'll be when the actual episode credits show up. WUG is working on a very tight schedule.
Idolmaster songs are shit though.
The movie came first, right?
Oh no, I meant the first episode, not Seven Idols.
Pretty much. Love Live was the only idol show with bearable music.
Not really, every idol song that I've heard besides iM@S seems to follow the same terrible, paint by numbers musical formula.
>paint by numbers musical formula
What does that mean exactly?
I read anime instead of song. You are right.
You don't know shit about iM@S music if you actually think that.
It's the best music in the business, period.
Has anyone else said that they're going to sub this? I just want the damn PV already.
oh look,IM@S cancerous fanboys are out of woodworks
IM@S music is shit. Deal with it. Its a shitty video game that cant even compare with proper all media competitors or real idols.
s2 needs to hurry the fuck up already so Love Live can show everyone how it's done
More like Slut Live.
I'll repeat myself, you don't know shit about iM@S music if you actually think that.
Really, you don't.
>she sees you are dick
>i repeat myself, you dont know shit about Justin Bieber music if you actually think like that
IM@S music is shit. Deal with it. Its general conclusionthat LL is lot better in that aspect
just the way I like it
Why is she even trying to be an idol with skills like that?
She could be a VIP prostitute making thousands of $ per fuck.
But anyway, music aside, I enjoyed the movie and I would give it an 8/10.
For fuck sake, fuck off. Even Natsuiro Kiseki has better songs than IMAS.
You're not fooling anyone, you have not listened to anything that wasn't in the anime, and I doubt you even listened to that.
Love Live is shit.
because muh experience and muh steppingstones.
do you even watch the show? She is already filthy rich. She wants to be famous,
Need I remind you that idol is not a singer? Sure it may not be comparable to a real singer or musician, but their song is one of the more decent one when it comes to idol group.
She wants to grow as a singer and dancer. She has been studying music since she was little. Why idol, though, I don't know.
Well this is going nowhere.
So, you admit IM@S anime songs are shit?
>hanging out with shit tier production company
This show is realistic alright.
sounds like Iori
A girl being able to spread her legs isn't exactly some amazing skill.
let's see you do it faggot
Its not about pure singing, IM@S had nice voices too. The probelm is composers. Absolute most IM@S anime songs were generic and unmemorable - only handdrawn dancing made it somewhat bearable.
In contrast, Lantis actually bothered to hire decent composers and stuff for Love Live, Natsuiro Kiseki has Sphere that is popular on itself, and Macross (which counts as idol show too) had songs that blew up all the charts. There is no excuse really.
They are not the best songs that the franchise has to offer, no.
I mean, there's 70GB of iM@S music, and all of it is good, some of it is absolutely fantastic and revolutionary.
I'm not a girl. Leg spreading comes naturally to girls.
She is in shit tier region. All the industry is in Tokyo. In movie she already was disappointed, called them talentelss hacks and wanted to quit.
(Fail) pandering to those levels are hard to watch.
Ymakan really has no pride.
Umh, i dont care about terrabytes of Vocaloid music if BRS songs were shit, some character songs of some shitty anime might be good to- does not matter to topic That aside, Love Love makes most of its profits atm from live concerts - their music actually sells (also, its not top standard too - its just good in comparison to IM@S)
>I'm not a girl
Yeah right, fucking liar.
This is not your average leg spreading.
She's either a gymnast or a ballerina.
Chicks that flexible can get filthy rich in sex industry.
>revolutionize genre by deconstructing it and showing grim reality
>calling it pandering
he just shows things as they are
Then why don't she quit?
Its all a setup for the mc that will be the hero that would bring the girl to their peak of popularity and save the company. And the mc happens to be a complete faggots, and I bet he will man up when the story needs him to be.
This show is hardly realistic when you consider that harem like situation no?
Sendai is basically a fucked up place next to Fukushima. Nobody actually want to be there.
>mc that will be the hero
You mean it wasn't a former super famous idol saving them?
Why does everyone claim Harem as soon as there are more girls than guys? It's an Idol show, did you expect there to be guys? the only idols that have shown any interest in the manager are Airi and Miyu
Best girl, best VA
If you want to watch a good show about idols, watch Amachan, or just follow AKB or MoMoKuro.
No shitty low budget anime is going to be any good.
AKB did a great job on the idol aspect ;_;
I am waiting for MC to pick guitar back. There are two possibilities
- he ragequits the agency, reunites with Kazusa and Setsuna and form his own band
- he unshealthes his guitar and makes rock performance with WUG
I said a harem like setup, never did I mention that this show will be harem.However the mc and the situation he is in ticks every single checkbox that would qualify him as generic harem mc.
its the worst abomination Japan produced since rape of nanking
Morning Musume for life
I wouldn't mind the MC if he wasn't such a blatant self-insert for Yamakan.
Okay, your post is almost unreadable, you sound like you're from from fucking gaia or facebook or whatever.
iM@S has many concerts a year, and they fill arenas, every fucking time, and they have over a hundred songs plus they cover many others, there's 14 members, and there's one thing that's the most important, their music is good.
>Not wanting to insert yourself into the savior of anime.
Yamakan is a cutie
>being this much a fanboy of a shitty video game franchize
go back to gaya
Anyone has that pic of Yamakan shrine?
Somehow this is my biggest fap fuel this season for me. Carelessly showing off their panties on stage just gets me so hard.
That was some shitty bait dude.
I wonder what the scandal will be.
How many episodes are planned for the first season? I say first season because Yamakan very clearly intends for this to become a franchise.
Amachan is about idols?
Just a 12 episode season for now.
Post a good IM@S song.
Oh wait. You cant.
>there's 14 members
Non-virgin idol. It's foreshadowed.
I would, but you'd just call it shit even if you liked it, so no, I will not.
CG and ML don't count, though they have some very good songs too.
>CG and ML don't count
Kyun! Vampire Girl
not even fraction as good as even the first LL singe
If you're gonna list stuff that entry-level then I better post my favorite iM@S song.
He said a good song, not anything about entry-level.
It is obvious.
I bet it is that slut from the maid cafe.
Kaya has so much potential drama it's not even funny. Her mom probably died in an accident too.
I never knew she was nigger. Nice plastic surgery.
Also, even porn games have better songs than IM@S
in a sea related accident. That's why she takes so many part time jobs and doesn't even look like she wants to go to college.
It's the slut from Tokyo
>Also, even porn games have better songs than IM@S
mfw its actually treu
Most 18 yo nip girl have fucked by that age.
Not to mention shitty previous jobs. Clearly has money problem. Must have done enkou once or twice.
I bet it's "Leader".
Must have sought sex to ease her stress from failure in the past.
You can stop samefagging now bro.
She quit because she didnt want to sleep with the producers to be the center.
Was that in the movie?
Blame Tsunku for not thinking out of the box, which is why it's just a shadow of its former self.
>could have, should have, would have
Or maybe she did and still lost the center position.
Thus "it's unfair".
μ's a shit
A-Rise is the real deal
Is AKB not popular anymore or something?
Other girls are you even trying?
They all sound like generic anime OPs.
So does that.
Sounds like korean idol song.
Shut up already, Verty.
>complains aobut generic OPs
>posts generic EDs
>It doesn't cost us anything to show our panties.
She is the purest and most mature of them. She knows womans dignity is not affected by things they do by choice. She kicked a customer that tried to grab her ass and than left workplace trowing shows at the chief for complaining about it. She is by far the best girl so far (also maid is the moest)
The nose knows.
Airi is the plainest aidoru for now.
Chill-chan is obviously the best. She's the only one giving zero fucks and trying to solve problems logically rather than whining.
I watched it with zero expectation and i ended up loving it.
I hope it doesnt turn into shit... the first episode and the movie were really damn good. They voice acting wasnt good, though.
I believe Airi is a parody on IM@S. They specifically included plain, fat, without talents or willpower, not able to dance, not able to sing, " I wanna be an idol!" village idiot, so that they could later crush her dreams.
She is the "regular girl" the anime message is aimed at. Wake up, Girl!
She looks like Haruka with mole
wake up girls is just a love hotel, stop reading into it.
She will suffer. This is inevitable.
More interesting would be, if because of that she`ll turn into a bitch, and betray her best friend. So that l-1 story repeats again.
BD1 contains ticket to their concerto
> Goro making them gravure idols in ep 2
They don't let him go ahead with it do they?
You can't do that to Idols.
She's a parody of BOTH im@s and LoveLive.
>Haruka's plain and haircut.
>Her family runs sweet shop like Honoka
I want to protect that hymen.
If this series is suppose to criticize the idol business, why did they make a real idol group of it?
Do novice idol groups even sell that well? I read that when AKB first started they had trouble even filling up 250 seats. Considering how many idol groups are out there now competition would be pretty fierce.
For the eventual underground AVs
Yamakan is a hypocrite, more news at 11
The series is actually, supposed to save Japanese region that suffered after earthquake. Yamakan already saved anime. Now he saves Japan.
The darker tone of the series is, since its dedicated to all that died in the earthquake and tsunami.
Novice groups dont get their own anime. WUG is already in prime time news, so its good start. At least locally in Sendai, they sure would be celebrities.
>This is stupid and you're all stupid. We, the smart ones, will exploit them for our gain.
In case, it's successful
>See, told you.
She's nothing more than a plot device to pull in "Fallen Idol"-chan. She is probably going to quit or suffer horribly just to stand out a little bit.
But Amachan already saved Tohoku.
Why can't the West make something like this without the open sluttery and anti pedo brigade?
The site has some nice character art. Any way to rip it?
http://www.wakeupgirls-social.jp/wp-content/themes/pardy-pc/images/chara/chara1.png to 10
Not Chihaya actually doesn't want to make me kill myself whenever she opens her mouth.
Can't wait for the ensuing drama of her and the fallen idol to fight over the "center" and leader position.
So guys, which WUG would you fug?
All, but Kaya i would marry.
Forehead. Also marry.
She's seen some shit.
Both twin tails.
Anyone but forehead because she is a disgusting working woman who is blatantly a self insert for feminists.
Also too old.
Ripped from the WUG social game.
Just finished watching both the short movie and the anime.
Why is everyone such a god damn tasteless prick in /a/? They don't know good shows when they see one.
All I say is fuck your mindless moe garbage. Fuck that homosexual pandering tripe they're pumping into the airwaves.
JUST STOP AND WATCH WUG.
Say it's shit, and it just goes to show that you can't be saved. Yamakan 2014.
It is because some anons are weary of the show because of Yamakan.
Congratulations on being the only person on the internet that says 'sculpurose'. What the fuck does that even mean?
Its called typo
What the fuck? WuG is mediocre at best, even the prequel movie isn't that good and episode 1 is a complete shit.
You are the one who need to get your taste checked. Fucking weekend kiddies.
That didn't occur to me in the slightest. I guessed it was a typo but I had no idea of what.
So in which episode will the 13 yo member deliver a blowjob for the producers of a recording company?
make what? Idols are an asian perversion.
You mean teen stars?
Boybands and girlbands? But honestly gyaru idoru is just not for the west
Ah fuck, I made the mistake of watching episode 1 first
I just saw the movie. I might actually end up liking this unironically
The West has better anti-pedo laws. That's why.
you realize two maybe three of the girls are orphans right?
looking this smug
damn, yamakan never changes
Kaya definitely is. Leeda lives with her grandparents because shock in Tokyo, I think. Who else?
He knows he's hot stuff.
What a fucking sexy beast, he is. I'd let my ass get saved by him.
Miyuu, also just 18 and working full time not going to school. Mayus mom also seems broken I bet there is a reason for that.
So, we've established not-Chihaya as best WUG right? Her seiyuu sounds the best despite being new
(Actually, she doesn't really act much like Chihaya. She's much more positve)
>all those empty seats
This is from the movie premiere right?
Empty seats 100%.
Tange is best girl. Hope she comes back soon.
Lets try that again, will the image be replaced?
>this is the last time we ever heard of him.
Well, with all the other tie-in stuff (game etc.), if this fails, he surely is finished.
Movie definitely felt more polished than the TV episode
I always get these conflicting images in a WUG thread. How was the movie premiere actually?
I wanna know that too
>mfw they probably are having so much fun
That was cruel as fuck. Convinced me to watch the show.
I wish their faces would differ a little, make them bald and I bet you can't tell the difference.
>Implying they're not all the same girl
Yamakan will save anime. You'll see.
I figured out to pay attention to their hair. Even though two of them have the same hairstyle
They kind of all rook same.
>3 if the VA are actually Tohoku orphans
Yeah, poor them. Right now they are nothing more than Yamakan marketing gimmick, being used by him.
thanks, now is easy
Are you serious? Because the website of their "agency" gives me shit.
I love Leader
I just called long tails "the moe one"
I just call her "best girl".
Which girl would you wake up?
Forehead a best
But Leader is best girl
i'd wake up yamakan from his delusions
Minami or Nanami
>Generic same face idols
>Same otaku pandering shown
>Yamakan saving anime
How this happen?
No Anon. Calling a realistic wake up call like this as mediocre shows how much you are devoid of things that go around us. You rarely see anime like this.
I'm telling you, you need to open your eyes. Yamakan has a message that he wants to tell to the industry and to the whole audience that is involved.
>You rarely see anime like this.
I've seen enough. Perhaps maybe you should expand more of your mediocre library?
Well I tried helping degenerates like you. Can't say I turned a blind eye completely.
so...which ones weren't virgins?
At least watch more titles to mature your palate anon. This show is hardly impressive, and for you to be all over it just show how immature you are when it comes to this medium.
Twintails obviously, just look at the face she does when they ask that.
>I only watch mature anime for mature people such as myself
I liked it and you're not going to stop me.
Did you even watch the movie?
Of course not, but try not to make greater than what it is.
Its enjoyably, but hardly special.
Of course I did, how can I criticize an anime without watching it? Do tell me anon, what makes make WuG plotline so great? For me it suffer from a pacing issue especially on the later half of the movie. And some of the girls didn't get a fair treatment and exposure compared to others.
The one with Yamakan had a crowded room. The ones without Yamakan had no body.
It's the proof that Yamakan, not his anime, is what people are waiting to see.
this is too complicated, better this:
short air -> center's friend
pony tail -> tsundere
twin tails -> moe
long tails -> slut or boobs
I don't know which screen they use at Toho, but even if they goes with the smallest one it probably only filled about 80% of it instead of a full house.
I'm glad Kaya is already recognized as best girl.
Now I have a good reason to watch WUG.
Manager runs away with money
Male manager has a new harem
2 idols will whore themselves to pay debts
3 idols will be blackmailed and forced to have sex with politicians because of obscure pasts
1 idol will die because another group doesn't want them to become popular
1 idol will quit because sexually harassed by Male Manager
Male Manager will make a deal with Japanese mafia to boost popularity of his group (drugs involved, the idols will have to help the mafia distributing them)
A lot of other stuff
Pony tail is the edgy one.
>Calling best girl slut
just call her a bitch
> big boobs
> works in maid cafe 'serving' nerds
she's a slut, sorry, is more easy than long tails
>Calling Miyu a slut.
I'll fuck you up.
The group being named after a love hotel is foreshadowing. By the end of the anime, the girls will be forced into prostitution and/or porn by Yakuzas.
What's with the shitty animation? Why the fuck do they all have the same face? Are you guys seriously implying that this shit will save anime?
>inspires the people around her
Miyu is marriage material
>helping out orphans
>helping out radioactive sendai
Why is Yamakan so based?
She should be the MC, just like Honoka.
Because he is the salvation of Japan.
Hunting down those uniforms.
That's the joke?
Blue and Leader train together and fall asleep in the same bed.
Ojou and Genki Girl go on a not-deito of Sendai. Genki Girl shows her all her favourite places while complimenting Ojou on how kind she is. This makes her blush.
Kaya spends half an episode protecting Miyu from Ojou's advances. Nobody takes away her woman! Nobody!
President skypes with Ritsuko on how to manage an Idol company
Miyu meets Nico, Hanayo and Aoi.
Fucking make it happen Sunrise.
>jumper under an open blazer
Best girl just keeps getting bester.
How many cases of sexual harassment are there in the idol industry? I'd assume a lot and that it's in America with all of those child stars on Nickelodeon.
>How many cases of sexual harassment are there in Japan?
Google for statistics.
This thread has been fucking derailed.
>That awkward smile on the far right 3D.
This one caught my eye for some reason I don't know.
She has the best fashion sense of the group.
She's 14 you sick fuck.
Which Wake Up Girl has best panties?
Which unseen Panties are you most looking forward too?
Miyu best, I'm disappointed we didn't see Kaya's after she made the first remark about just showing them.
Anyone know who else is subbing this?
you like gluttons?
legal in spain and old enough for hugs and headpats
Yoshino's flashes a little at this point.
>Which unseen Panties are you most looking forward too?
Kaya's, since she's 18 I'm sure she has some sexy adult underwear.
>old enough for hugs and headpats
>Watching anime frame by frame to search for pantyshots
What I'm doing with my life
sounds like you need a better hobby.
I don't see the problem.
So she does. Although it's a bit hard to tell what they're like.
Doing gods work son.
Just update the picture.
I think she's the best WUG
I can't choose a favorite, all of them are lovely.
>mfw we'll be compiling all the fan service from now on
So who wants to take a bet that the producer lady was telling the truth about the family emergency and didn't actually steal the money? I mean, it would seem strange how the movie went its way to establish her character only for her to disappear halfway through it. Also, the last time we see her, she looked visibly distracted and down about something and Manager had to call her like three times to snap her out of it.
I'm guessing that's what happened, we'll see her later and she'll explain that she forgot to transfer the money before she left.
She's still a bitch for completely dropping the project she herself started, emergency or not.
So, you do know that if this fails Yamakan will go broke until sudoku, right?
Yoshino's seeming plain white fit her straight forward personality, they tell us what we've seen is what she is, she has nothing to hide.
Minami's stripes and bow indicate she wants them to be seen, even if she doesn't know it herself, it's possible she had thought about the flashing before putting them on and was fully prepared too.
Nanami's Polka dots(Possibly strawberries) are childish, telling us behind her bitchy outward act, she's really still just a kid.
Miyuu's fancy bowed pink ones show us what she's already told us, she wants an exciting life, a she's not afraid to show a little skin for lewd to give her some excitement. But the soft colour indicates she's pure inside.
No one gives a shit about Airi, so we didn't see them.
Kaya is not the same case however, even though she was the first one to speak up about it being okay with them showing panties, she took great care to make sure she didn't flash. She's pure, but hides this to seem experienced and mature to the other girls.
Last is Maya, who due to her idol past, instinctively picks elaborate and frilly ones as she had been trained to do as part of a slutgroup.
I am a Pantsu whisperer so I'm fairly confident in these assessments, sasuga Yamakan.
I thought the distraction was because she was thinking about running away
Almost everything is right, but the I-1 group have VAs with some famous lesbian characters, so I doubt they're a slutgroup. Even Mayu seems pretty gay towards Airi.
>No one gives a shit about Airi, so we didn't see them.
Cannot bring myself to watch the one hour episode. I'm sorry, Yamakan.
I wonder if Vert realizes that he is the new Siztra....
pls keep your shit in one thread
What are you even replying to?
Are you ready to be WUGed?
Must admit that was more a stab at AKB more than anything else, I do think she's been conditioned into wearing frills due to Idolpast though.
I'm going to save this for research purposes...
I finished both the movie and the first episode yesterday. I'm liking what I'm seeing so far. I'm really beginning to like idol shows, though I still haven't watched Pretty Rhythm.
Did anyone thought the "what about the show-off panties" part in the movie was a little weird? I was expecting the girls to go "ehhhhh" out of embarrassment or something at the Manager saying that and going out to buy it, but they barely reacted, just went "oh well." I'm not complaining, just thought it was odd since I was expecting the usual anime reactions.
You're a cultivated conoisseur and a refined scholar.
That was why I liked the scene. I'm tired of usual anime reactions. For once we see something a bit different: they have nothing to lose and at that moment they don't care.
Those seem like pretty accurate predictions, I hope you're correct, you may have a promising future in this line of work
Look at that sleazy bastard.
Even if this show bombs hard and the show goes on to be shit it already has pretty much the best threads on /a/ this season.
At least it can't be worse than Im@s.
But it already is a couple of level below Im@s. The movie have an animation quality akin to any seasonal title and the first episode of series is really really a disappointment.
The song is mediocre and the story is bland.
And don't let me start on the seiyuu, shit is bad yo.
The only thing that could redeem this show is the return of the president. She is the only character that I actually cared out of any of the girls in the show and its freaking fun to watch her antics.
So no Crunchy edit confirmed?
What the fuck is pixiv doing?
Clearly not enough art being produced for this show.
>wake up cocks.gif
They are still busy pumping out Kancolle arts.
The animation is shit, I can't discuss that.
The seiyuus are all new, it's normal that they are a level below im@s ones.
The song is good. The Im@s songs are really mediocre (in my opinion).
>the story is bland
Are you kidding me? Im@s plot is so shit that it will be nearly impossible to be worse than that. The characters are all cliche and have no depth at all.
>The characters are all cliche and have no depth
You haven't played the games or listened to the countless talk tracks and drama CD's, or read any of the manga then.
>If you find your career between now and then, you'll probably be better off than most of them on your 30th birthday.
Ah yes, the day I acquired my eldrich powers as a Touchless Wizard. Truly, I remember that day well.
It is a pity females are naturally mana-less beings; perhaps they can follow the path of the Catamancer, and acquire many felines.
So, what happened with Yamakan?
He went from moe hater to "he who saves anime with moe idol anime"?
He's saving anime from the inside.
The seiyuu is new is no excuse.
The story IS bland, there is absolutely nothing interesting in it and the plot is all over the place.
>The characters are all cliche and have no depth at all.
Have you tried to watch EP01 of idolm@ster?
The characters in WuG are the one that you should label as bland and uninteresting since the tried soo hard to make them look the same as their seiyuu.
stop please you have absolute shit taste
Yamakan still hates moe, the problem is it's the only thing he knows how to do.
I'm sure he has a plan that we cannot comprehend.
Honestly this, I spent the entire movie shitting all over it on twitter, was bored as can be in the middle, although I can blame that one mostly on Mayu angst, and considered it a terrible experience.
Then I came on /a/, jokingly arguing best girls, and next thing I know I'm actually anticipating the next episode.
Episode 1 of im@s established each individuals more than WuG did the whole movie.
Slow pacing would make the episode seem shorter.
How can a mean who can withstand shitty voice acting and horrible animation as well as bad character design calling out others for having a bad taste?
Now tell me anon, what makes the story so good? As far as I know, what we got is nothing more than a generic story of a dude who will save a bunch of girls and the company by sheer effort, inexperience may he be.
>there is absolutely nothing interesting in it
Well this is like, your opinion man.
im@s is even more generic than that. If there existed a really good idol show I could agree with you, but trying to call a generic show by comparing with another even more generic...are you kidding me?
How do I watch wake up girls?
Is it the film first then the series?
Because iM@s has a three-singer limit.
Throw too many singers in, it all sounds the same.
Im@s is generic, and so does this show. But everything that has been shown in WuG has been done and better in Im@s. Be it the characters, song or the story.
Do you even LL
Can I fap to it?
If you don't mind me watching.
>Is it the film first then the series?
No, they released the film now but they intend for you to wait 13 weeks for the series to finish before watching it.
It could be between episode 1 and 2 or something you fucking huge dick.
How is it generic? What part of it has been done to death? Can you name at least another title that is similar to it?
I think the limit's five. You can hear the difference depending on what singers you choose.
I found their reactions quite realistic. Flashing your "panties" is kind of inevitable anyway when doing some dances in a skirt (just think about ballett).
There's plenty of weird shit other than that.
The fact that Mayu never seen her own stage performance for example is really, really strange.
There's spreading and then there's SPREADING.
Miyuu a best idol.
There are quite a few actors who don't watch the movies they're in.
The plot may not be amazing and the direction not that great, but this anime IS more realistic than other idol anime. That's really WUGs only redeeming feature so far.
I can understand actors, but a dancer for example always review their performance in order to fix any mess up or to improve it.
Live performance is a lot different than recorded acting.
Oh look... Another generic idolshit... Again...
How can it be realistic when you have a fateful meeting, an ojousama, a dialogue that is as generic as you get eg: "I believe in you", "You are shining", and how the girls are so, so positive especially on their first gig, how they somehow out of nowhere manage to be a single unit even though the instructor said it was impossible, that sudden "I don't mind flashing out my panties", and the fact that they still wants to become idol using a company that should be filling a bankruptcy by the mc himself.
Also the reason why the producer ran away is also not clear. Money? What money?
What a fresh comment you have there, anon.
You have great taste
I didn't say it was all-out realistic, I said it was MORE realistic than some other shows. That's a difference. Of course there are still quite a few unrealistic elements left. But it's not all happy-go-lucky-we-are-idols-being-an-idol-is-fun either.
I think the reason was clear. Didn't she say in the letter that she left because her lover was in some kind of trouble?
I'm starting to agree, her uplifting message made Kaya and Yoshino perk up and stop being so depressed. She's a sparkle.
This show is as realistic as the idolm@ster if you left out those happy happy moments and lighthearted episode. There's struggle, there's tears and there's a moment where reality hit them.
Whether WuG will contain the same elements happy-go-lucky moments, only times will tell.
Miyuu has long legs.
Do girls usually walk in a single file like that?
Kaya is the tallest WUG, her legs are probably longer but she doesn't dress like a slut so you can't see it.
You're right, time will tell. I think WUG will be a bit more critical towards the idol business though. You already have the group named after a Love Hotel, after all.
>she doesn't dress like a slut
Whoa whoa, where did that come from?
The MC is clearly Mayu, the beta manager is totally irrelevant
Probably not, but it makes it easier to animate.
She dresses like a fashionable young maiden thank you very much.
just finished the "movie", not nearly as bad or cringeworthy as i expected
seriously though, why was the manager so insistent on them flashing their underwear? and what was he going to buy before the concert but didn't?
I was pretty sure it was done as joke, and I actually laughed when the girls find that out. But apparently some anon have this "this show is realistic" mindset stuck up deep inside their ass think that the names imply something else and treat the scene differently.
You forgot to activate the subs?
>why was the manager so insistent on them flashing their underwear
>manager so insistent
Its not the manager, rewatch the scene. The girls somehow insist that they don't need a special underwear for it and decide to flash out their panties, and not a single girl in the group object to it.
This come out as strange because neither of the girls ever being portrayed as being bold before, as if the scene is a desperate attempt to justify the fanservice.
If anything, this is the first ever plot forced fan-service I ever seen.
no i didn't. i remember that he was supposed to get them costumes, but i can't make the connection 'you don't have proper costumes' => 'you need to flash the audience'
Is Japan aware that Kaya is best girl or is it just us?
Mayuu is best grill dude.
Of course it was a joke. Look, all I say is that this show is a bit toned down, nothing more. It's not a masterpiece (not even close), it's not super realistic, heck, idolm@aster may even be more enjoyable, I don't know. But it has its own flavor.
