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.
And how long has it been on sale?
Studio is piss poor so don't expect any good animation.
>Everyone has VERY high expectations for Wake Up Girls, both in terms of sales and quality of the show.
Umm, no we don't? This is 883 Yamakan we're talking about here.
There was a thread earlier that showed the sales so far, they are extremely high
another yamashit bomb
>Everyone has VERY high expectations for Wake Up Girls, both in terms of sales and quality of the show.
What. Everyone is simply laughing at the clown making it.

Even if japs won't shit all over this show because lol Yamakan, it will sell 4500 copies most.
Try harder, OP.
Yamakan is all the more reason to shit all over it. They hate him.
>Everyone has VERY high expectations for Wake Up Girls
Maybe you should actually read those 2ch threads. Oh wait, you can't.
>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.
Just wait until they will be forced into prostitution or whatever other rape and slut drama begins.
This much IM@S fags frustration.
Its already most popular ainme on 2ch, discussed in Prime time japanese TV, and ten times higher in rankins than Space Dandy
Its finally Yamakan`s Golden Age!
First vollume has ticket to live concert, drama cd, authograph and stuff. Its gonna sell - no questions here.
Other vollumes - will see.
You were the chosen one! It was said that you would save the anime, not join the others. You were to bring balance to the industry, not leave it in pantsu.
I think 3frt's is a pretty high estimate
Wug is masterpiece. Deal with it.
We are entering the age of Yamakan.
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.
The group is named after love hotel, the manager steals the money and disappears, in episode 2 Goro makes them gravure idols.
Sounds already more exciting?
Choose your poison.
Would you that ass?
>the manager steals the money and disappears
What a tweest.
Though honestly I'm expecting her to come back.
I wasn't going to watch it, but the panty shot made me pick it up. On the whole, I really liked it. Much better than I expected it to be and I think it could rival Idolmaster which I also enjoyed but this has a better start up with them all not being successful from the get go.
Who is this girl and when will she appear? (Mobage rips)
The healthy eater is my favourite so far.
Haven't watched the show but Airi looks like my type.
Airi will suffer most. She is talentless, fat, cant sing, cant dance, no will power - random girl that got there only since they picked litterally everyone.
All those flat girls.
That's okay. My white knight tendencies draw me to that kind of girl. I just want to cuddle her and kiss her cheek and tell her she'll always be perfect to me.
Kaya is best.
Oh good, they were missing a sporty girl.
One of the three NEW character in character list.
I can't help but think she really resembles Haruka and >>100036499
I pick this one. I hope they all appear in anime.
this anime looks promising
10 times shit is still shit.
Are these from the mobage rip?
Oh my sides
Holy shit, Mari?
I think I found the best.
Was better than I thought it would be.
Needs shopped preservatives
I don't like your implications there, son.
Truly a new golden age of anime is upon us. Based Yamakan.
God damn it Yamakan, don't defile Sendai. The grandest city in Tohoku should not have to suffer for your pathetic ambitions. This city deserves better than the likes of you.
The girls all look the same and I found several really bad animations. The fact this even has sales blows my mind. The whole first episode was a mess.
The amazing part is
its same girl
Why is she so best?
She has to please many old men daily
Primary schoolers can become idols?
These niggas knows what up.
So many characters. I want them all.
Professional dick masseur?
This is better than Kancolle, seriously.
Yamakan - the slayer of battleships and tohus.
jesus christ, that 5head
Its a shameless CG rip off.
>Wake Up, Girls! - Seven Idols - 01
>Wake Up, Girls! - 01
What's the point?
Voiced by Ami Koshimizu
It's not that hard to figure out, anon.
oh, it has battleships too!
stonk and intedepdent
So which episode should I watch first?
Another best character incomming
Seven Idols is the intro movie. The other is the proper first episode. Start with Seven Idols
Is this yet more yuri or subtext shit? Oh boy I hope it fails if it is.
For mother land!
girls in this franchize sure like to eat
no yuri yet
She sees your bank account
I assume this one is aspiring manga artist or something
more military geeks
Already chose mine one week ago. Glad I wasn't mistaken about her being best girl.
Give me the Sugihara sisters and I'll be happy.
If Yamakan made FRT out of his frustrations at moe overrunning and decreasing the quality of the anime industry's output, is his making of a fanservice moe show an elaborate ruse?
Somehow feel slight autism
It's a deconstruction of the moe genre. It's not even going to be some sudden turn or anything like Madoka, but just a scathing eye turned towards all the contradictions and unplesantness of the whole industry and everyone ensnared in it.
Watched both movie and first episode.
This show is anything but realistic, why do these people keep saying that it does?
>someone days ago suggests discussed=popular
>has multiple 300 post threads where people point out how fucking stupid it is
>people still post the same fucking argument
it's like arguing with a liberal
Wait, wait, wait.
Why are there so many characters ? I'm new to idol shows, is it the norm ?
Let me tell you one thing.
Something with that many cute girls simply cant fail - no matter how hard Yamakan would try or how shitty script could be.
Reminds me of Nao Kamiya a little.
This is mobage from last year, just like this anime it is also a marketing gimmicks for Yamakn new units.
most posted here are from Mobage. Not sure how many of them will actually appear in anime.
But yeah. For example IM@S has length over 100 recurring characters. Lets not forget AKB48, which has 98 real members
Are you writing an LN?
WHY ARE THEY SOOO YOUNG?!?!
Take a look at the age of debuting idols.
they are same age as their VAs, also same names and partially looks
SAMEFACE WAIFUS FOR EVERYONE
Are any of the mobile game idols in this group?
This is a sister group of AKB48 and their ages are similar.
Man, idols are too young. How the fuck are we supposed to fantasize over girls that aren't even 16 yet?
No, it just shows how pretentious and hypocritical he is.
Best girl. classy, mildly stuck-up, has high expectations of herself and others.
how aren't you?
Are any of the Basement Dwellers picking this up? Don't really wanna go with HS unless it's a last resort.
I have my eyes on you
The only good character in this show, sad that she's gone or else the series would be at least somewhat decent.
OI YOU FUCKING IM@S MANELTS, is anyone else picking this up, tell me NAO!
Wtf with captcha today, is getting hard as fuck.
ıt is not even on fansubdb. I don't know.
>all these samefaces
Anon please, superior idol Mobage coming through.
Moot wants your money
I might actually like their irl versions too
Apparently 3 of the VA`s are orphans, because of earthquake in that region. So "charity anime" is not just joke
yep, moot has a backdoor to google to make it harder for you to type the captcha
just pay the fucking thing, what nigger country do you like that you cannot pay $20 a year
>15-17 year old
>49kg, 39kg, 45kg, 40kg
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.
>just pay the fucking thing, what nigger country do you like that you cannot pay $20 a year
you are not foolilng anyone
If thats what 4chan is becomming, we might as well all start using facebook
Are they trying to compete with CG?
I belive its pretty normal weight for Japan.
Also, there are orphans along VAs - who knows, maybe they are all PSTD after earthquake and starved for days under ruins
But idols always wear those tiny shorts underneath their skirts.
I don't think this show is very realistic at all.
The art's better than ML at last.
where are all these coming from?
CG is old and busted. WUG now beats Kankolle and Tohus.
I don't think you know how BMI works for kids & teens.
Well of course ML is shit, i don't know why they keep forcing it.
Did you watch the episode?
I'm ten mintues in now.
Man, yamakan's really trying to sell this, hell, the studio too, I mean, they even did a movie for it? Wow.
Movie first, then episode. Movie explains why pantsu
Movie, mobage and TV series.
Its too cute to fail.>>100039288
Even though it was on purpose, it was completely unnecessary for the camera to suddenly pan/focus on it.
They should do it with more subtlety instead of shoving it in front of our faces.
Minami spin-off Series when?
Is that leader?
I actually did like the movie. It felt like a better first episode than the actual first episode which didn't get good until the last scene which was like "holy shit what"
Yamakan already set FRT measure
How many FRT will WUG be?
Shit, I had no idea. Wasn't Idolm@ster just a Xbox 360 game or something ? I just know it from doujins.
And what is Mobage ? Google tells me that it's a company that makes mobile game, did they make some kind of "Create your idol waifu" app ?
Holy fuck, I feel like a newfag.
>Holy fuck, I feel like a newfag.
Because you are a newfag anon, no need to deny that.
Less than 1.
Cardpacks where? The one I had wasn't the latest.
I had to start the game with this girl because Nanami isn't a starter Rare.
Ah, I'll try that then. Hopefully it'll be more interesting than this episode is.
I like 3D idols, but somehow I've never found an idol anime I liked.
>still mad that CG didn't make it into the movie
> TIL what FRT is
>2nd post get
I wish this was more about cute idoru doing cute things where there's never any problems and all the girls each have one funny trait and everyone love them.
But there's already im@s for that.
Fucking ML, and some of the worst girls too.
A-1 is afraid that CG girls will steal the thunder so they have to go with the ones that won't.
What is Yamakan planning?
We have like three of those already. It's reality now.
Heh, I guess. Do you want to be called senpai or something ?
Can anyone explain me rapidly what the fuck all of that is about ?
Do these people even watch im@s?
Scroll down a bit maybe we'll see Patrick Bateman there
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.
Now you can call ME senpai.
>170cm, around 80kg
>I wasn't even chubby then
Perhaps by Amerifat standards you may not be.
Good joke, faggot.
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.
Fuck this I'll never remember.
I wonder what is going to happen to them all after the series ends?
What, who are these? Are they idols? Will they make an appearance?
Fade into obscurity like the AKB0048 girls who graduated from AKB48.
Maybe reunite for S2.
I want to watch WUG with Nao and talk to her about how shit it is.
One of the girls is actually an ex junior idols.
Can't remember which one, but the picture has been posted yesterday.
Love Live has one of those too.
so... does anybody have any guesses of what's gonna happen in the next episode?
are they're gonna go along with that Sado-kun since japanese don't know how to say No?
are WUG gonna be whore in some beach resort?
Does this anime deal with prostitution, sex, drugs and alcohol?
Don't remind me ;_;
At least Nakaya is finally getting some work.
Thank you very much, senpai !
I find the whole "idol culture" fascinating, and kind of creepy-ish to be honest.
you talking to nao?
who's nao again?
They can't do that so early they have to turn him down.
I don't want to see them be lewd so early on.
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.
depends on what you mean. Prostitute already showed up. Tange asked about virginhood. Drugs and alcohol in a show with imnors will get through the censors.
Is this true?
Surprisingly, people can actually tell the difference between CGs from the shapes of their eyes.
Anime designs like WUGs makes it harder to differentiate because there is less effort put into the art.
>depends on what you mean.
Like they are blackmailed, the must do free stuff to boost their popularity or shit like that.
>talented in anything but voice acting
Oh, so they're talking like real people?
Nao is Nao. Come here, Nao.
>never get through
so I1 wears AKB48 uniforms while being a parody on Dream C Club which is a parody on Idolmaster ?
Dream Club isn't really relevant. There isn't any host clubbing going on here.
I-1 is just the in-series AKB.
They are talking like an amateur people trying so hard to sound animeish. And they way the conversation flow is hardly natural with akward pause and tone here and there.
Have you seen the episode preview? They actually tried, but its still sound awkward as fuck.
President Tange returns.
Eh, works for me. The way conversation flows between me and others is hardly natural,
sounds like Yamakan is going for realism.
Only after they're relatively successful. She'll come to collect and Matsuda will have to fend her off.
>The way conversation flows between me and others is hardly natural
Yeah, but at least you didn't try to sound like an anime character while doing so.
I'd prefer if it they stopped trying to sound like anime girls and spoke like normal girls. But I guess that wouldn't be moe moe kyun~
So, they are whoring themselves for free?
Is that Aya Hirano?
Why do these mobage characters look better and more memorable than the main girls?
What is yamakan planning?
How do you say no to the only guy willing to help you when debt collectors are all over your ass? It's time to go gravure.
A lot of panty shots.
It's the art style.
>not fine with getting touched
>fine with flashing panties
Seriously, the panty shots were horrible.
Character development happened.
Deconstruction of panty shots via desexualization.
>I can give or receive blood from Nanase, Minami, Nanami, and Kaya
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY GIRLS
JESUS FUCK HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO REMEMBER ALL THESE NAMES AND PEOPLE
There are just 7 dude, chill.
The majority of the card game girls are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. I've only seen a couple who even have voices outside of the main cast.
give him a skirt and some shimpan and we'll talk
It's not hard to have higher ranking than Space Dandy. That anime was made with Western fans in mind.
They tought it would be their first and last performance, so they had nothing to lose.
Ho I watch the OVA or anime first? How do I get into this, /a/?
Watch the one subtilted Seven Idols first.
If you watch episode 1 first, you'll feel like a piece is missing in the story.
Someone has to post this on 2ch.
Just use their hair colors.
Look on the bright side, least it isn't all jet black like normal japs.
not too hard.
But really, it's not too difficult to just learn a few names.
This is one of the bigger gripes I have with this anime. The way the smile is exactly the same, the way they sigh is exactly the same, hardly any personality is put into their expression.
Yamakan, are you even trying?
episode where they have to style and dye their hair according to the trends
kidnaps mayu episode
>hardly any personality is put into their expression
That's what he's going for.
It's called Wake up, Girls! but it's obviously meant to be Wake up, Idol Fans!
All Idol groups are all the same mass-produced shit.
Now look at just one of them and tell me which color is it.
recaptcha is google's fault
So is that Yamakan with the Gendo pose in the back?
If you can't read those easily then maybe I should give you the number of a good optometrist.
What was that site with the names for all the hair colors?
Now I feel almost guilty for not wanting to watch it.
Which girls are those?
thats one of the girls. yamakan is int he red shirt I think.
doesn't matter if you get it right with these shit captchas
If you're not with me then you're my enemy.
Auburn and Gray going by the hairstyles.
Left is Miyu, you can tell by the red and the twintails.
Dunno about right.
By their unique Animal Mascot Character.
Any :> in this anime?
i'm not sure what to think about this anymore
you can't deny this
But Chihaya is perflat.
What makes this WuG Chihaya so special anon?
Chihaya > Umi > Yoshino
How many Idol games are there now?
Cinderella Girls, Million Live, Wake up Girls, School Idol Festival, Tokyo 7th Sisters.
Not even picked up
And here they said it'd be difficult to place Wake Up Girls into character archetypes.
Maybe there's a Takane in the Phone game or one of the many rival groups.
I am looking forward to seeing Minami Tsuda and Yuka Ootsubo work together again.
The last time, Minami Tsuda and Yamakan were working together he was still trying to save anime.
3 years later, he's given up and just made an Idol Anime.
How is that hack Yamakan still allowed to work in the industry ?
He's possibly an even bigger hypocrite then Miyazaki
He should have been run out of town after slutty shrine maidens.
Stretching it with the Miki/Eli/Kaya comparison.
No real personality archetype there and the only thing linking them is that they're well-endowed blondes.
Dafuq is this? Did a google image search and got nothing.
I like Miyazaki.
He sticks by his beliefs (politically) even when it's unpopular.
And he's giving a fuck you to Abe and the Ultras.
I am hoping Wind Rises wins a Oscar just to sock the Ultra-Nationalists. They can go back to making Voldemort comparisons after kissing Miyazaki's ass.
>Studio is piss poor
So this anime is basically the story of their life?
>Director has no talent
>Has to make an Idol Anime chocked with fanservice
>it's still completely lifeless and soulless
It amazes me how Yamakan can suck the life out of anything, even the stuff he's supposedly passionate about.
How do I read this?
Yeah even i was sort of weirded out by that.
What the fuck are you smoking? The youngest one is Jan '99, which is age 15.
Red Leader will be there to hug the depression out of her like a Good Leader should.
And then Red Leader acquires the Yuri Harem like her predecessors before her.
First episode was boring as heck, the song was good though
13 is pretty normal age debut over there.
Minami a best
Oh yes, we need these two to meet a certain pair from Tokyo.
Not into Yuri. I'd fuck the 4, though.
What lies have you told?
I'd let her fuck my ass with this nose
somehow it feels like i've seen these three somewhere
But anon... Fucking cookies.
It's confirmed, WUG is the Citizen Kane of anime
Airi will actually suffer least because she can bribe everyone with her cookies and japanese sweets
And that's why she's best idol.
Why does she have a yamaka on her head?
Wasn't very popular on CR yesterday.
I also don't get the marketing behind it. A movie and TV series were released on the same day?
Only one matters.
Million Live. Joking. ML a shit.
Is anime saved?
If it doesn't have a shouting MC with a grimdark depressing setting then crunchyroll won't watch it.
not sure if crying or evil eyes
Shy girl is best girl-
Citizen Kane is a movie about a young man who starts a newspaper company based on strong core values.
But gradually he sells out his beliefs for the love of greater profits.
It's a perfect analogy for Yama--I mean Rupert Murdoch.
What every do you mean?
Woah this thing just got deeper than eva.
Is it still too early to lose hope for a second eva?
But we can still hope for another Madoka , Idol version.
I want things to get disturbingly real.
Yamakan sacrifices himself to save his Idols from a life of coercion, exploitation and overwork?
So many science babies in ML and CG.
>obligatory kancolle reference to boost sales
Wait what, that means it's the second most popular show that started this season. So I'm not sure what you mean by not popular.
then explain the popularity of Kuroko, Log Horizon, HxH, SAO, Golden Times, Magi and the list goes on.
The third most popular. Corrected.
the CR chart isn't that useful as there are new releases daily and they go straight to the top. CR needs to adjust the algorithm to pull weekly stats instead of daily.
oh god the captcha
make it stop
Change your IP if your captcha is always two blotted words.
The UK list. Somebody please explain to me 'Recently, My Sister Has Been A Slut'.
short term fix seems to be switch browsers
This anime was really about whores and prostitution!
>whores and prostitutes
no need to repeat yourself
Which one is he gonna fuck first?
Yamakan's face when he was fired from Kyoani for being a shitty director
Ponytail because she wanted to quit.
Yamakan you fail to us, now you are a fake messiah
Only reason I'll try to keep up with this. She's adorable, even if her little "introduction" at the cafe was cringeworthy as fuck.
Except their dignity
It is not even arousing. Did nips fap to this cheap fanservice or are they laughing at how ridiculous it is?
Mayu looks nice.
So, what am I supposed to watch first and why are there two different episodes of the same stuff?
Mayu is a nice girl
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.
Watch the movie
Then the first episode
You have at your fingers the pooled collective knowledge of humanity from the most abstract theories of existence to the day to day questions that come to your mind. Everything you want to know can be answered if you just look for it. Your question was answered before you ever thought it up. All you have to do is look and you will find it.
I beg you. I BEG you. Please learn to look these things up so you don't have to ask questions.
>All in all, the approach to idols in WUG is very superficial and anime-otaku-ist.
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.
If they were 3DPD then idol otaku would lose their shit.
Yamaka didn't account for 2D otaku expecting a higher calibre of fanservice.
I assume that you think about the look-alike idols of the 80s, and you must be reading too much Japan Times.
No, I'm not familiar with 80s idols and I don't read weaboo news. You are delusional if you think there is notable differentiation among modern groups.
>Animu & Mango
Things that will blow your mind:
Yamakan joking its slut group whoring itself. Refered is AKB048 and Dream C Club - IM@S concurent with more fanservice
Is Twinkle a real duo?
I actually liked it... I mean, it's not great, but I thought it was entertaining. There are other people who like this show, right?
Of course i liked it too, best show of the season so far for me. Not saying it's the best thing ever.
of course there are only a few hit and run posters in here shitting up the place.
>Cartoon-watching weeb still expecting his phony messiah to redpill him about something he's actually shilling for
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.
those were the days, man, those were the days
What are "show-off panties"? Are they special kind of panties worn by idols so they don't show their real underwear?
Just look at all the WUG threads. At the very least, /a/ doesn't think this show is outright shit and maybe actually interesting.
Source? Too crazy to believe.
Can't get enough of best girl.
Assuming they meant dancers underpants
Guess which version turns me on?
>mfw chuuni2 will sell just as bad
get fucked moefags, your shit studio will finially die now
season2 is completely unnecessary
wich wug wud u fug?
Who voiced them? I thought I heard HanaKana.
>gets all his inputs about Jap culture from it
>still wants to come across as expert of anything Japanese by virtue of watching animu
>claims he's not an entry-level weeb of the worst sort
Don't worry, Yamakan will redpill you anytime now.
It's cute and sexy. Dunno where it will go from here, and could've done without the LN-style scene, but it isn't half bad. Will give 3 episode rule at minimum.
Her left hand looks really weird in this
Haven't seen the show yet, but this screenshot looks like something out of a beginner drawthread. Dunno what it is, the hair? Looks kinda rudimentary.
Do they sound as bad as the amateur seiyuu in akb0048?
I liked it a lot. I don't know why people are complaining about the animation and voice acting.
This isn't KyoAni, I'm not expecting top tier animation but it's still pretty good. I'm also a huge fan of amateur seiyuus so I likd it a lot.
>There are other people who like this show, right?
Dunno, the character designs are all pretty bland in all honesty. But she just stood out the most to me, mostly in personality though.
Yes. It's not really awful, but you can tell that they're clearly new to this.
>mostly in personality though.
Personality goes a long way.
Sounds fun, with the amateur seiyuu, gonna check it out.
It fucking depends on who's teaching them how to voice-act and sync their mouths, and how much time they spend in the sound stage. If you want an all-pro cast, go back to IM@S.
>implying WUG mobage will not beat Kancolle and Tohus and create a new cult
Nevermind found it.
Or maybe they do know their shit about the idol industry, and are dumbing things down to appeal to an audience for whom deviation from standard tropes is undesirable.
Not while China is breathing down Japan's neck.
>IS 40 frt
This makes me so mad, every fucking time
I smell a smelly fat Idol-otaku fag stalking girls and disgusting them with sweaty handshake on events.
Its obviously you are just a fanboy not happy people show not nice things about your hobby.
KyoAni died in the eyes of moepigs when they announced Free!. They cast their lot with fujoshi scum, thinking that they could also keep the pigs at the trough. Idiots.
Oh, have you cleaned your bedroom? And your dick? And you look so pale today.
I did not ask about the recording process. Learn to read.
Its brits of course they love incest
It's because you imply about voice quality.
I smell an idiot who just escaped from the containment pen that is Shitkaku Complex, trying to force the "3DPD is PD rite guis, us tru-otakus" on here because he thinks it makes him sound more Japanese.
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.
>this sweaty greasy threesome just waiting to happen
Holy shit I'm old.

This is boring as fuck.
>Japan selling anything to China
>China not pirating everything
I guess that idolshit could be a cultural export weapon. Make the Chinese less interested in bombing Japan and more interested in jerking off. Castrate the enemy with waifuism.
Thank you for your input anon.
Both of you get out with your stupid drama.
Going to ride Kancolle for a long time.
I am half way through the film and keep minimizing it to watch someone play farming simulator instead.
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.
>what did Yamakan do except from slapping a costume that is famous for being an overused "generic idol outfit" and calling it a day.
Audited 2000 people, trained them, established bussiness connections and their concerts, creates anime to promote them - ITT: created actual irl Idol group?
I thought Yamakan said he'd quit forever if fractale failed and only sold 1 Frt
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.
Love Live! on the other hand is clearly made by someone who knows shit about idols.

Is that why it was so much better?

May be the only book on the subject
Please continue with your blog anon. I'm pretty sure everyone wants to hear how you waste your time.
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).
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?
>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.
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.
It's the first time i'm hearing of this.
Sasuga Yamakan! Its almost as entertaining as Miyazaki trolling right wing
>your standard idol show with pantsu and cutsey girls doing cutsey things
>suddenly insert deep meaning and genre deconstruction
Look at the Holocaust deniers and laugh.
Another thing: if the anime happens during the 2011 earthquake why are they showing an outfit only used in 2009?
>I don't have any real arguments I could support so I will make up excuses for not posting anymore
When Yamakan > Dentsu
Yamakan must be happy about this shitstorm, it'll make it easier to sell his show.
i wouldn't be so sure.
talked about =/= volumes sold
I'm betting the virtuah farming is more interesting.
You shouldn't gamble when you can't win.
Controversy sells, and if it doesn't mean money he also gets free and greater publicity for the show.
You are way too sure of your own luck aren't you?
Like how Aku no Banana sold tens of thousands of BD volumes, right?
It boggles my mind that some anon don't understand something as simple as this.
It can't be helped.
Exactly. And see what happened to Valvrave. Basically, it's not going to sell if they mess up big time at some point or viewers will only watch it 'ironically'.
What is the shitstorm about?
PANTSU AND GENERIC IDOLSHIT IN YAMAKAN 'I WILL SAVE THE INDUSTRY' ANIME!
or something along the lines
>If the anime happens during the 2011
He's a brave man, battling against the enemy in its own terms. Godspeed Yamakan.
It's sad that we won't be able to have threads about it without Yamakan shit storms.
>YAMAKAN 'I WILL SAVE THE INDUSTRY'
But that's just a meme.
in 2ch asides from a WUG thread there also a Yamakan hate thread. he finally got people talking and flaming over the show and that is clearly a shitstorm generated by several seconds of pantsu
It doesn't as some anon pointed out above. But some of the ggirls might be Tohoku orphans.
Shhhhh, let them believe in what they say.
You should know what you got yourself into long before it aired.
I never thought Japan could shitstorm over 2D pantsu.
after all the Yamakan trolls drop it in 2 weeks, maybe.
Wouldn't that make the show even creepier ? Poor, orphaned girls with no-one to turn to when theyget molested.
>20 main characters not including non-idol characters
>implying even half of them will get enough if any character development
>implying this won't survive of idol waifu fags that will keep playing the 3-5 minutes his waifu was relevant on the show over and over
not under normal circumstances.
but this show has Yamakan involved.
see the difference.
With all these efforts, plus the movie, merch and games and whatnot, if this franchise fails - may it spell the end for Yamakan? I mean, for good? It this doesn't become a hit, he's fucked. We may see the end of an era here.
You can't kill Yamakan, period.
Who ever kills Yamakan must become Yamakan
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.
So, the current Yamakan may not be the Yamakan who made Fractale?
Do they hate him that much?
Speaking of Fractale...
This will be the sixth time we have destroyed Yamakan, and we have become exceedingly efficient at it.
They hate him because they know he speaks the truth.
Looking at the Mobage characters - the more of them appear in anime the better. They look better, many much so than the actual cast.
So the reference is more out of date? Wow such realism, very research of idol industry
>it's like arguing with a liberal
Is this a boy or a girl? Think carefully.
too many cute girls for it to fail
otakus will buy it
It says GIRL right there.
Only a faggot would care, faggot.
