Everyone has VERY high expectations for Wake Up Girls, both in terms of sales and quality of the show.
It's going to be a real shame when the first volume is released and only 2k-3k volumes are sold.

Ganbatte, Yamakan

>Green Leaves Entertainment is a tiny production company on the verge of going out of business in Sendai, the biggest city in Japan's northeastern Tohoku region. The agency once managed the careers of magicians, photo idols, fortune-tellers, and other entertainers, but its last remaining client finally quit. In danger of having zero talent (literally), the president Tange hatches an idea of producing an idol group. On the brash president's orders, the dissatisfied manager Matsuda heads out to scout raw talent. Matsuda makes a fateful encounter with a certain girl….

Sounds awful. Like, the most boring thing you could make without it being haremshit.

It's not going to make a lot of money if the girls don't improve their voice acting.

Although, it's already screwed from the get go by making it slightly more realistic and using that fucking dull as shit colour scheme.

Are they whoring themselves out cause they can't afford food or something? That puts them in severely underweight category if you look at a BMI. I mean, I weighed almost twice that in 7th grade and only like a foot higher and I wasn't even chubby then.

Marketing and franchise expansion.

Idolmaster was an arcade game, got a Xbox360 home release, a sequel that bombed on 360, spin-off portable games, and a rerelease of the sequel on PS3. they followed this up with a mobile phone game.
"Mobage" is a japanese contraction for Mobile Game as well as a comany name in its own right.

In an attempt to get his way back into the industry, Yamakan started a project under the pretense of helping the earthquake and tsunami victims.
There he interviewed over 2000 girls and handpicked a handful of them, destroying thousand of girls dream in the process.

From there he trained these girls to become the idol unit he dreamed of, but apparently these girls are talented in anything but voice acting, which is apparent in the anime.

Gravure shot is pretty normal thing to do as an idol. Sure, some of them may be not as comfortable, but they need to suck it up and do it.

Suda-san is taking them to the right direction with the beach shooting session. They need to expand their portfolio, and this is the easier way to do so.

3 years later, he's given up and just made an Idol Anime.

Citizen Kane is a movie about a young man who starts a newspaper company based on strong core values.

The Iiwake Maybe costume is now just a generic idol costume that gets used whenever an "idol" pops up in anime. I'm not starting to make a list of all the times this happened in other series or had costumes closely patterned on it.
All in all, the approach to idols in WUG is very superficial and anime-otaku-ist. As expected Yamakan knows shit all about it and has to fall back on old and tired tropes.

As opposed to the real life idols who each have their own identity and appearance? The idol industry uses the same formula to the point that it doesn't make a difference. They all look, sound and act the same.

No, all the idol references in this series have so far been out of touch with reality, "realism" my ass.
"I want to represent a generic idol, so I'll have them wear an Iiwake Maybe costume" is a very uninformed and shallow trope, entry-level stereotype which reflects on how little research has been done. This is what comedians in manzai acts do,from an animu series which somehow wants to shill idols and still be taken seriously I'd have expected some more sophisticated references than that and "maid cafes".
But then again you can't expect people who have worked their whole existence in anime industries to know much about the world outside.

The moment the name of the project popped up I was hooked since I've taken a liking to idol anime as of lately. Of course I noticed Yamakan was involved and quickly jumped to a negative expectation of the show. So far, with the movie and first episode, nothing has hindered the enjoyment of the show. I like the approach they're taking towards building the WUG idol group and the gloomy atmosphere isn't much of an issue at the moment.
Decent start, will keep watching.

It's not that they're undesirable, it's that they're completely lost without those tropes, which in turn defeats the purpose of a SOL show disguised as an "idol animu".
Kawamori had talks with staff and went to idol concerts to study his stuff, what did Yamakan do except from slapping a costume that is famous for being an overused "generic idol outfit" and calling it a day.
The worst part anyway are the people who don't even realize this show is a shill for his own flop group and think it'll redpill weebs about something.

You clearly don't know what you're talking about. Yamakan (or whoever) is definitely familiar with idols, to the way the I-1 Club girls are all in a circle and put one of their legs forward or the way the hungry imouto did that V-shaped mark. And all other kinds of details that you wouldn't know if you were a fucking idol casual. I'm impressed and am looking forward to more.

So he basically created this show in order to shill his flop group of underground idols. We already know about that, but I was talking about what he did in the way of understanding mainstream pop groups.
It's pretty obvious by the way he's pitching it, and especially WHO it's pitching it to (anime otaku exclusively), that the closest thing he has in mind are maid cafe hostesses (which is probably where he first saw those Iiiwake Maybe cosplays) and Niconico camwhores.
So ironically any criticism you might find in the series can only be understood as a self-criticism to his own flop group and the anime industry which feeds it (the panchira... ugh).
>>
>>100058076
I see he achieved his goal: making the obsesssed idol-otaku rage and trow tantrum since he exposed in unfavorable light.

Amusing seeing people like you cry. Especially looking at how dumb your arguments are. You realize the show is written by same people as IM@S and many people are involved in it?
>>
>>100057962
>needing a book to get into the subject

Yeah, because the whole thing is a static unchangeable world and so it can be easily be summed up in a book.
And don't get me started to the fact they only reference oh-so-wacky English news articles, sometimes published by the same co-authors, because they don't have much firsthand experiences themselves.
In a way, it reminds me of those videogame books published by 90s sociologists who never played a game in their life.
>>
This show is more of Yamakan's view of the idol industry in general. He and the writers could write what they think about idols and the fandom that supports them in any way. Pray that they get the facts and the details right, because if the viewer only gains information about idols only through anime then he is making a terrible mistake.
>>
>>100058500
If you want to end this discussion with an elaborate U MAD, go ahead because the battery of my smartphone is almost over anyway.
Also, I'm probably much more informed about those "unfavorable opinions" than you are. That's a benefit of knowing Japanese, being able to navigate through net tabloids and having things in perspective, so don't worry about redpilling me with your entry-level Sankaku shit.
Our difference is that I don't need a middleman to feed me with confirmation bias.

Usually yes, but we are talking niche markets here. People on /a/ or 2ch already knew about the show, and people that not frequent these boards will not magically hear about the show. The controversy angle only works if it plays out in a really public forum (and with forum I mean TV audiences, major newspapers etc.)
We here are mostly an echo chamber. Nothing that we talk about here has any effect on the outside world.
>>
It's far less interesting to know how /a/ reacts to Yamakan than what the Nips do whenever he's involved with something.
>>
>>100061336
