Just because it has more posts doesn't mean they are positive posts.

yeah, post count is irrelevant.

>>100031331

Number of posts don't equal popularity.

It's just the obligatory mechashit of the season. Those always get many posts.

I think the time loop is just a plot device to get Ordinary High School Student into a future mecha war.

No, they just read SnK manga unlike /a/ newfags and crossborders and knew the story was shit.

>Proper discussion

These 'proper discussion' doesn't mean that it is generally well conceived. Or do you honestly believe that a proper discussion is a thread that constantly praise it for being great for over 8000 threads?

There's plenty of controversial shit going on with this anime that generate plenty enough talking point about it compared to any other anime thats aired this season. It being most discussed is not a surprise.

What's wrong with iM@S, AKB, Love Live, and WUG? What makes one worse than the other?
>>
>>100033174
They're all shit
>>
>>100033174

I love them all.
>>
>>100033174
They are all idealized Fairy Tale Cinderella type Disney entertained shows, designed to promote cute girls and merchandize.

Wug on other hand is semi-realistic drama about idol industry, and charity show to help people in the region that suffered from reathquake.

IM@S is video game adaptation. AKB is shittiest idol band ever - anime at least has nothing to do with real one or music thankfully. Love Love is nice Lantis/Sunrise media project.
>>
>>100033095
My opinion is based off facts. Therefor I have objective taste
>>
>>100033174
iDOLM@STER is great
Love Live is shit
AKB is not really your typical idol series
WUG is decent

>>
>>100033253
>Wug on other hand is semi-realistic drama about idol industry

It is as semi realistic as Love Live and Im@s is.
Why the girls still insist on hanging on the almost bankrupt idol company? Why would a rich girl with proper education enlist on that shitty company in the first? Why do the producer is still around instead of filing a bankruptcy when his boss already ran out of country?

Didn't one of the members of AKB shave her head after getting caught having sex with someone or something along the lines of that? I have no idea about what happens behind the scenes of that kind of stuff so I have no idea what actually happened.

>>100033397
For someone who hates fun?
>>
>>100033386
Why do real girls follow the shitty director hated by all industry and fans in whats expected by everyone to be a flop?

Unrealistic.. wait, thats what actually happens! Maybe since they are in shit region and Yamakan gave them, talentless hacks with no expirience or potential a chance.

golden time and klk not even on the list

>>
>>100033509
What? Every girl would jump in at the opportunity to be famous. 2000 girls went to the casting.
As shitty as Yamakan may be, he have connections and the experience to pull it off.

These girls in the anime on the other hand is on a sinking ship, and yet they are still around. But here comes a male mc to save the day, and he will by the looks at it. That itself is pretty unrealistic for me.

Oh these girls will have talent alright. If they don't, this show will be all about them failing and eventually make their debut in AV world.
But this isn't something that Yamakan will pull off, this show is after all a promotional anime for the girls he assembled.

Not every women in Japan ends up as an AV actress. Look at AKB alone. Only 3 or 4 went to AV business. Out of hundreds of girls.
>>
>>100034472
Since IMAS and LL are as realistic as Disney cartoons

Obviously because it's so original and profound. Yamakan is a genius! He did it again! He's saved anime!!

Why is the anime industry not seeing how Yamakan sees it? It took only a short movie and a 24 minute tv anime to describe how a initially good-willed industry gets destroyed by the people that surrounds it.

Great depiction of how the girls struggle so hard just to keep up with this rotten entertainment business.

10/10 Yamakan. I have never seen such a strong public statement in anime since LoGH.
