Synopsis of first 5 episodes
President was three episodes missing returns, the work that the president brought at once activity resumes in earnest, members were gourmet report 3 minutes mini corner and weather forecast for the variety show of each and is divided into two sets of WUG finally Although he was supposed to charge the corner ..
Sore eat Katayama is noted above all
Crown radio program also determined following the TV Episode 4! Topic not favorable to the true dream WUG As the be recognized in public but WUG it means that production of Saramo 2nd single also undertake, promote walking as idle smoothly, has withdrawn from I1 club national idol group also people The spread between
WUG that resulted in the finished 2nd single at last 5 episodes, to perform live again, but was also the day of the performance of Kokeraotoshi I1 Sendai live theater that day. It is confronted by city stains I1 club one color, the difference of overwhelming force, but still hard at lessons of their own people as hard as possible, true dream we were going to the publicity of live in a step-by-step fashion
Today, thousands worshippers ventures to Kannagi shrine to worship their lord and savior Yamakan
Let's settle this once and for all!
Red Lion is Best Girl.
Red because Red designates Leader status (a la Yuuko, a la Haruka, a la Honoka, a la Ichigo, a la Naru)
BD 1 includes concert ticket, Drama CD and other goodies
Already outranking Space Dandy, Kill la KIll, Nisekoi and other new staff (except Chu2)
I am sorry to disappoint you, but the best girl is not even in anime yet. Pic related.
The anime best girl is without questions Kaya though
And just when I thought this gamble couldn't get anymore insane.
Will the concert be in February to compete against the Love Live mini-juggernaut?
Wake UP Hanekawa
Yeah she's alright.
I live in a country where the Crocs might as well be one of our National Animal.
12 04:14 Jan 2014: Name: Nameless posted
Gee, It is a good after all
maximum smug face
So how many Cinderella Girls VAs are involved in this franchise?
So far I've counted Nozomi Yamamoto, Ayaka Ohashi, Yuka Ootsubo (but she's more known for being TOSHINOU KYOUKO!) and Minami Tsuda.
You may remember Minami as Phryne from Fractale.
Which is just sad. Shit like this shouldn't sell, no matter what's added with the first vol.
Preorder this in spring to support our God
Thats like, your irrelevant opinion.
People genuinely liked it this time. Yamakan still can fuck up, like fractale - but so far its good. Also something with this amount of cute girls, simply cant fail.
There's pretty large gap on the chart between Chu2 and the rest, so this anime could be anywhere between 2k and 9k sales number.
no show this season has noticable preorder points yet, so thers no big gap. Only ranks are somewhat relevant.
Where's the concert going to be?
Seriously, this is insane.
He's just throwing everything on the table at once with the expectation that everything just might work out.
It took LL about 2 years before they organised a live-action concert.
What are the chances that Im@s can't beat WUG's first week sale tickets?
Kaya is cute
Kayaaya is super cute
Kayaaya is the cutest in the world
Kayaaya is so cute
I love Kayaaya
Kayaaya is so bewitching
Kayaaya is my wife
>People genuinely liked it this time.
What exactly are you calling people? The Japanese otaku that eat up each and every idolshit anime produced? Of course they loved it, but that doesn't mean that anyone with some actual taste liked it.
I have pretty good taste and I liked it.
I have actual taste, and I liked it.
I thought Japan hated WUG
Yamakan might be controversal director, but he seems to be a good bussinesman. USP was his idea and he made it live, convinced other studios, partners and sponsors and make it work. Despite him himself having little resources he pulled ambitios project like WUG once again, established busines connections, organized actual idol bands and venues for concerts.
At very least in the region WUG takes place, the girls should be popular. its already on mainstream TV.
Also wug is at work since 2011, after Earthquake. Mobage existed for more than a year already and other promotional events were held until now. The audition itself was such a thing too.
They did actually by the looks of it.
You have shit taste and apparently you did not read any of its thread on /a/ when it aired. You are a minority.
Hell, while i hate ANN, i am kinda surprised they gave it 4.5/5 rating despite pantyshots.
Wasn't the Mobage only released this January?
Japan loves idolshit but hates Yamakan. They are very conflicted.
>ANN idol praising anime with most gratuous fanservice of the season
this must be signs of apocalypse
What's their beef with Yamakan?
Most discussed anime on 2ch, mentioned at prime time TV, mainstream magazine articles.
Lots of hate and trolling as expected, but also genuinely hooked up a lot of people.
He has a huge ego and his shows aren't very good comparatively.
He calls it how it is.
>most gratuous fanservice of the season
Japan loves cute girls. They will succumb. There is no escaping Yamakans corruption spell.
no such thing as bad publicity. Stir up this much shit and you're bound to get enough people who like it.
yeah that's basically porn.
ImoCho is the first non-hentai show in a LONG time to give me a raging erection. I think my dick is fucked up because the censoring doesn't take away from my state of arousal one bit.
Think what you want about Yamakan or WUG in general, but you cant deny your dick.
I originally had a lot of big expectations for Yamakan's artistic integrity, but everything about WUG contradicts his 'saving the anime industry' motto. This guy is a brilliant businessman, from the looks of it, but he is an utter failure when it comes to following his own words. Marketing young girls to sing in front of mass public sure is innovative.
Then again, no one in Japan took him seriously to begin with. Who would expect good things to come out from a guy who directed BRS, Kannagi, Fractale the Ghibli ripoff and the awful first four episodes from Lucky Star?
Yeah that was really explicit. However I feel ImoCho is more steadily lewd than Nourin. It's close though.
WUG : 2ch :: KlaK : 4chan
Lots of people are watching it, but everyone watching it knows it's shit, having convinced themselves it's possibly a deconstruction of shit, only to discover that it's just shit.
He woke up to a cruel reality and succumb to the mainstream trend.
Now he toils away for a bread producing the very kind of show he hates.
In other words, he's become one of us.
he should try making yuri anime then, we could use more of that
Yamakan just likes idols. He also has a schoolgirl fetish.
You are either ignorant or trolling.
WUG is a first serious and realistic anime since Tokyoo Magnitude. Thats it - you can search your memory and you`ll not find another one.
Its also a charity anime genuinely helping the people from Sendai. 3 of the VAs are even Orphans, whos parents died back in 2011. Its a huge organizatory effort and it a serious attempt to make something people of the region could be proud about.
The character designs specifically were made dull, so that viewers would pay attention to their personalities - not appearances.
The story is far more serious than fairy tales of IM@S and Love Live, and while not quite buzzword "deconstruction" - does not disappoint delivering what Yamakan actually promised.
>Its also a charity anime genuinely helping the people from Sendai. 3 of the VAs are even Orphans, whos parents died back in 2011. Its a huge organizatory effort and it a serious attempt to make something people of the region could be proud about.
Kaya is orphan
Now you know why her story in anime is one of the more serious ones and she looks like if she seen some shit.
Now I feel like a bad person for NOT wanting to watch moe pigshit.
My new OTP.
I would gladly welcome a crossover.
And if not a crossover with the Lantis Alliance Franchise then a crossover with our Sister Franchise Pretty Rhythm (same music studio)
yamakan at work
When I was young. When I still had dreams, I wanted to save you from moe pigshit. I wanted to save the industry from stagnation.
B-but I need to pay my bills. I-I'm sorry. Ideals are for the young when you still have time to dream.
Success of WUG still largely depends on how good its music will be. So far we seen too little to judge.
I'm glad he didn't permanently retire after Fractale. I need anime to be saved for a long time.
Yamakan is like Ironman.
He has assembled he old crew from Lucky Star to save the day.
Well, at least the first song was good.
Not bad so far
>WUG is a first serious and realistic anime since Tokyoo Magnitude. Thats it - you can search your memory and you`ll not find another one.
Except that's fucking wrong you retard. Just fucking stop, it's not a realistic anime at all. Holy shit I can't believe any of you retards are actually believing this shit. God and here I was thinking that the "Sasuga Yamakan" posts are just ironic shitposting and that you faggots actually still have some taste left.
There was a fuckton of realistic anime ever since Tokyo Magnitude, just a few to name from the couple of past seasons would be Gin no Saji, Uchuu Kyoudai, Golden Time, Chihayafuru.
Post the others please.
>Its also a charity anime genuinely helping the people from Sendai. 3 of the VAs are even Orphans, whos parents died back in 2011
You fags will lap up any bullshit
Wasn't Yamakan the one who said that anime was just pandering shit, and that Madoka would fail in the midst of Fractale?
How is this anything different?
>Gin no Saji, Uchuu Kyoudai, Golden Time, Chihayafuru.
Assume every post treating WUG as a 'serious' anime as sarcastic and trolling.
I'm personally not convinced.
Fractale was meaningful but it still bombed because of it's horrible ending.
>light music has somehow become a genre
You just replied to a newly made pasta that was freshly kneaded a couple of days ago.
It was when the full PV were first released if I'm not mistaken.
Also, imminent mobage image dumps by the same fags over and over again.
dem fat thighs, truly the best.
He's fighting fanservice with more fanservice, neat isn't it?
>IM@S buthurt fags this delusional and mad
How much money do anime directors make? Yamakan is saving anime, so he must be rolling in the dough, right?
It was always a genre in Japan.
>a kid game that nobody actually play
>implying anybody actually care about jaxa or how realistic it is that hibito can actually survive when he ran out of oxygen
None of them are realistic besides gin no saji. I am still not convinced such school exist though.
Why is Kaya so best?
Hey, at least none of them have a girl fallen on top of a guy.
Hey man, quit lumping that shit on us, I love iM@S and I like this too, there's 0 reason for either fanbase to hate each other.
Best girl confirmed
>There was a fuckton of realistic anime ever since Tokyo Magnitude
To be sure, Yamakan was rebelling against the lack of creativity in the anime industry and the overuse of moe. WUG might be some sort of a charity anime but that has nothing to do with the intrinsic creativity of the show itself - it's marketing, if anything. If Yamakan wanted to unique, idol anime is hardly the genre to be unique in. Not to mention that WUG is not the first 'serious' idol anime that shows the toils of being idol and how stressful it is: we already have Aikatsu.
I'm going to save this post as soon as I find a good picture of Yamakan.
Minami is the Tiger.
I like the WUG mascots.
They look fierce and aggressive instead of cute and saccharine.
I'd imagine I could wear one of these to the Bar to watch football and not get any weird looks.
It'll be like those ties with a hidden anime character.
I forgot to mention about mention about TM8.
It was borderline supernatural with the ghost shit.
WuG is actually much more realistic and gritty than all of them to be honest. I am still not convinced yamakan can pull it off though.
Pig would have been more appropriate for her.
I am surprised he did not mention White Album, Watamote or Yahari ore as "realistic"
He probably things realistic writing is absense of magic powers and mecha in anime
What's up with the hard on for "realistic" anime anyway? Isn't part of the appeal of anime is that it doesn't have to be realistic?
Man, I've missed this stuff. One of the reasons I started watching anime in the first place.
it's meta-anime which makes it fresh
And Perfect Blue.
Needs more love because there's so many asshats whining about 'no deconstruction of the idol industry.'
Maki's Daughter (or is it Eli's daughter?) is the Purple Wolf.
Nanami von Wolf. Adolfine Nanami.
Best girl will appear later, pic related.
That said, Airi is untalented, cant sing, cant dance, no willpower, just a random girl from the street with stupid dream of being idol. She is like a parody on most IM@S/LL characters.
She is likely to fail and suffer, or even worse - turn bitch and betray her best friend, repeating l-1 story
Nips animate everything, regardless of genre.
Otaku only want escapism.
Since all the Mascots are predators or aggressive, might I suggest the Wild Boar?
Light Blue is a Polar Bear.
I don't even care about who made the show, i just want to be that manager guy.
That's a beaver if I ever saw one.
are the other WUG actually going to show up? I thought it was just the main 7.
she is pure
Wug is the most pure and serious of them all. By all means its different. Blaming Yamakan for trying to cash in the idol genre is just dumb.
He IS showing creativity doing such anime.
>I am still not convinced such school exist though.
It's like you've never even drove 40km beyond your suburb.
Agricultural Schools are real. Just look it up.
However I was never enrolled in one so I don't know if their practicals are as gruelling as the series portrays.
If anything I wish anime set in Catholic Schools would be more realistic and show the CATHOLIC side of it. I had to attend compulsory masses and go to religious camps every 3 months.
3 new girls will show up for sure and be relevant, no idea about the other Mobage characters though
Are you a masochist?
Shit, I want this.
Did you even AKB?
God, this was the best anime I've seen since Madoka aired.
AKB already did everything Yamakan wanted to do but nobody watched it.
>Implying you wouldn't like getting pushed around by an hot milf
I was really inspired by the movie, I really liked their dancing too, hah.
But now I don't know what to think at the end of episode one.
You mean, ugl grandma?
Also, is stuff like idolm@ster as nice as this seemed in the beginning?
I-I think this is my first idol anime.
I watched it.
I felt like the plot of the movie was really cliche and so it didn't do anything for me.
Also this is a terribad way to end something that's 52 minutes
Final Stage when? ;_;
IM@S is nice if you want pure entertainment, but its pretty shallow
LL has bit more story and is fun, but neither are really like WUG
I feel kinda conflicted about it.
It was just like watching SnK, I knew I was watching complete and utter garbage yet I enjoyed it. It just feels bad knowing that my taste is shit.
if Yamakan is going to blatantly selfinsert himself, I wish he gave him his own appearance at least. Yamakan is so handsome.
That line make me cringe.
I thought it was a cute referential thing to end it on. Reminded me of Kyon.
What was it referring to?
More suffering plz
I think he had a picture of him in a magazine in the movie when a character was flipping through it. On my phone, so I can't go and screenshot, though. Also, he was in the back when the girls were in the studio recording room at the next episode preview. You can see him in the mirror.
That the first episode is about to air.
I-5 will show up as the Rival.
I think another rival group is appearing voiced by HaruTomatsu and KanaHana.
And let's not forget Naru and Rinne from PR.
I am glad that i many years, i`ll be able to tell my grandkids, that i was there whe Yamakan saved anime.
You could also tell them about the time Yamakan failed to save anime with Fractale.
>HaruTomatsu and KanaHana.
They are Twinkle, no? I am almost sure I heard KanaHana there.
And how he didn't give up.
God bless him.
>Anna & Karina
Probably some kind of European Russia-themed unit.
You forgot how he promised to retire if Fractale failed and then proceeded to become a total sell-out.
Yamakan is Citizen Kane.
And then saved anime anyway.
He's the Ed Wood of anime.
By being a sell-out.
>WUG is a first serious and realistic anime since Tokyoo Magnitude.
WUG is Sendai Magnitude: Aftershock
Are Twinkle a real people? I believe i read about them in some other manga too.
this isn't Sakura Trick.
Eri was the best Idol. Russians are great.
God I'll enjoy when the fallout will happen after the anime ends and this will be considered the worst anime of the decade because of the shittiest fanbase thanks to IRC.
Possibly more russians
Who the fuck picked the girls for the anime, the others are much better.
Kaya is perfection
The Director made Maido cry. Never forgive.
Also shows how serious she is about this whole thing. Others are not affected as much, but she seems truly passionate about becoming idol and this chance.
She was not the only one crying though.
It is as if this show was written by Mari Okada
Man this show got kinda real at points. I liked it. Really shows how campy other idolshit shows were, especially Love Live
So Touko is conceding to Mari (AKB0048) that Idolshows should be full of suffering not idealism?
Will there be any ShihoxMegumi?
It's called working from the inside.
Parody on K-ON?
Did they disband?
That 13 yo girl is cute.
Damn, they all are. Cant remember when i liked whole cast of anime so much. Even the rich bitch and Leader.
Why is she so perfect?
I liked SOME IM@S/LL girls, but by far not all. They were too shalowly or unrealistically charactarized or not paid attention at all. The reason WUG girls are interested, is that they already have fleshed out characters and emotions.
The enemy looks threatening. Will the WUG girls be able to defeat the evil idols empire?
I just did not understand why this part in OP was in such bad QUALITY? The dance sequence in movie and Ep 1 looked ok, so where did this abomination came from?
It seems whole budget of ep 1 went into movie
Best and cutest girl.
This show is really optimistic
From what I've picked up from 2ch threads, they've donated the money that they had for the OP for the relief of Sendai people.
I`d prefer Yamakan to sell his collection of ties, but ok. I can accept that.
Actually yamakan=Mayu,I-1 club=Kyoani
So we'll see Yamakan getting stomped and his idols thrown out of business by the end of the series? GLORIOUS!
maybe i'm biased cause i'm gay for yamakan
but i really enjoyed episode 0 and 1
This actually makes sense.
No. Its actually a good show. Though ep 1 had a lot of QUALITY.
Miyu x Yoppi OTP
I like to think that this scene and all the ones that focused on manager-san means he'll be treated like a main character in this show. Then I just realize that this is an idol show that I'm watching.
The ED shows graveyard/crematorium.

I'm pretty sure that's his main point. He's showing that im@s is making a lot more money.
holy shit, it's #38 now. For some reason Stalker uses another item "Wake Up Girls! 1 初回生産限定版 [Blu-ray]" in 2014 rankings, which is less popular at #199.
Wake Up Girls! 七人のアイドル - movie
Wake Up Girls! 1 初回生産限定版 - TV
both only became available yesterday
That's the actual anime, this thing at #38 is the shit that's selling just for the event tickets.
Thanks for the laugh bro.
Time to put some new titles on my backlog to.
well, it still shows that people are interested in the franchise. Anime sales might pick up depending on how episode 2 goes.

As opposed to IM@S?
To be fair, the movie is actually much better than ep1
When will Yamakan actually do something good?
Is it even gooing to happen in my lifetime?
I hope Maya gets some closure from her time with I-1.
But WUG is decent.
What is Haruhi?
What is WuG?
Did he do Disappearance?
FRACTALE ALREADY SAVED THE ANIME INDUSTRY
WITH WAKE UP GIRLS, YAMAKAN WILL SAVE THE IDOL INDUSTRY
Considering this show is pretty much one of the better shows this season you are looking at it, besides that you always have Haruhi.
He did Episode 0, God Knows, ED, and directed a lot of episodes.
He also wrote this song personally for his fuckgirl Hirano
This is your opinion. I dont agree with it, but respect it.
Just note, that in new world order, where Yamakan becomes worshiped overlord and God, renegades like you will be imprisoned and executed.
He's the one who choreographed Hare Hare Yukai
>Hare Hare Yukai
TFW I haven't been around back then and the Haruhi release I watched didn't have it. ;_;
Or maybe the release I watched had it but I was too much a pleb back then to enjoy it, I don't even remember what the ED was because it was one of my entry stuff.
>Hare Hare Yukai
He did both it and Lucky Star dance too
God Knows was also his idea
He personally wrote the OP for S2 too
He directed 3rd of S1 and half S2 episodes (was not involved in 88). Him disliking E8 is one of the reasons he was forced out.
He also did Kannagi OP
He seems to really like dance/idols
>Yamakan gets kicked out
>Kyoani enters gold age
I wonder how did that happen.
Kanngai OP shows he always dreamed of making Idol anime
now his dream came true
I don't know why, but I absolutely love it when real places are copied into anime 1:1 like this.
It's a non-3DPD connection to real life.
I want to marry Kaya.
Her body is super interesting but her voice is lovely too.
These uniforms are pretty dumb. What's with that retarded gap for if they're not even going to pander to armpit fetishists.
You mean they got lucky with Yamada helming Keion?
You can. Just fly to japan and confess to her.
Looks cute and pure. Aside the skirt length..
Wow, she don't even looks that bad for 3DPD.
All girls are based on the VAs - same names, same age, same backstories partically.
Also, Kaya is orphan whose parents died in Earthquake.
Looks on par with any other idol.
Skirt needs to be shorter.
According to Wikipedia, there is a folk dual named "Twinkle" from Sendai.
Kaya is perfect.
My little sister is older than most of them. This feels so wrong.
That'll make you feel all better when fapping to all those WUG rape doujins in C86
Anyone know where is the girl performing leg split scene? From the picture I saw, it looks like it was during the audition but I did not see in it in both movie and ep1.
Huh, she's younger than me yet she looks like she's 28 or something.
Japanese people look the same from 17 to 45.
It's not in the movie/episode. Some anon linked to it on youtube.
Wow why did they left it out. Thanks.
I wonder what exactly 'surprising personal history' means here. I doubt it's just her part time jobs.
She is poor and she needs money.
I'd audition Kaya everyday.
You know that doesn't work Suzaku
Considering she slapped a client because he touched her ass and quit her old job because of that I don't think that's the case.

They're all perfect.
Where is this at?
One good thing about this show will be doujinshi. I hope at least some of them would feature Yamakan.

I wonder if they`ll make place his Stone statue on central square, or those of the girls at least
Kaya's instant ramen?
Chick peas. If you catch my drift.
Why Sendai of all places? Is it Yamakan's hometown?
Helping Tohoku earthquake victims.
But holy shit, I didn't think they would promote WUG that much.
Buttdevasted by fukushima and earthquake.
Fukushima is like right next to sendai.
And how will an idol anime accomplish that?
Can anyone tell me where I can learn to read and understand this ranking system?
Pumping some money into the city by otaku tourism I guess.
Holy shit Yamakan is saving anime for real.
>Beating a group led by TOSHINOU KYOUKO, her waifu, the Hiiragi Sisters and rounded off by Tetora-chan.
Is this nigga serious?
Cuties except for Miyu.
It's a large city which used to be rather prominent, but currently on a decline, and it's also been heavily affected by tsunami recently. This makes for a dark and gloomy backdrop where something like a local idol group can be a glimmer of hope.
On the sales threads.
Amazing, not only is Yamakan going to save anime but Sendai as well.
Where to get movie?
Nyaa, it's the one called seven idols.
I hope you have some for all the girls.
It'll probably end with WUG getting some respect but I-1 ultimately winning, just like Rocky 1.
The first numbers are the amazon preorders rank and previous ranking. Lower number is better here, but since it's still so early in the season things could change quickly.
The number in parentheses is accumulated points that measure expected sales. This number will continue to increase until the BD releases, so it isn't very meaningful yet. It's based on the amount of time spent at various ratings and other factors, and is relatively accurate except for the top sellers.
Looks like /a/ got finally some taste.
Good enough for now, I guess. You'll all come around eventually.
I'm okay with this.
not all, but some others that are low quality.
seems someone took the images with a 3ds.

Edits sooner or later, I guess.

VA were casted from 2000 Sendai girls. Three of the current WUG VAs are orphans.
Its rumored that money from anime goes directly to charity funds.

I wonder how it looks in Japan
I am praying it will end with them going to Love Live
Seeing this picture made me realize that the coloring in WUG is horribly muted and dark and only makes the girls harder to distinguish from each other.

>Movie premiered in 108 countries simultaniously.
No it's not. Crunchyroll doesn't count as "premiere"
Its intentional. In one interview Yamakan even stated that characters are visually little distinguished intentional too - in fact, he was confroned about it during production, and ordered to keep the designs low key, so that viewers would focus on character and not appearance.
Kaya confirmed for best WUG.
It does. Read japanese wiki. It not just CR.
According to wiki its actually first such attempt to broadcast movie simultaniously with release worldwide for anime. Though right now it`ll probably become a trend. Sailor Moon does the same.
So that's where all the animation budget went.
>Movie premiered in 108 countries simultaniously.
I think you mean "went on Crunchyroll"
So, what exactly are the "show-off pantsu" that Date clan manager forgot?
Do you have any specific reason to insist on being retarded?
Wake up Girls cured my mom's cancer.
I'm not sure why but looking at them dancing with their uniforms already aroused me even without the pantyshot.
I honestly thought Leader was best WUG but I guess I'm in the minority here?
Not minority, you are literally the only one.
Oh it's those big spats-like things. Okay
She wasnt liked much due to negative character shown, but she redeemed herself later with the active position when tha ex idol joined and attempting to act as leader properly later.
But yeah, she is not the most popular.
I think she has the prettiest face of all of them, I love those chinky eyes.
I like her. I think she make a good pair with Kaya.
Well she was the former center until she got kicked out/parents.
those eyes tho
ugh 3d everywhere
Is it true that some of the voice actors are orphans? Does anyone know which ones?
You are not alone.
>Well she was the former center
No no, Center is main. Leader is the Chihaya looking person
Kaya for sure, not sure about the other two. One underage dropped out of school few years ago and not visiting it anymore. One more has parents in tokyo and for some reasons living alone in Sendai. One is an ex-junior idol (also from L-1, not Wug)
Nips do investigation work on that shit, we got info and sources reposted from 2ch occasionally, but no summary.
The crazy thing about this was how those ANN reviewers also liked it
>Agricultural Schools are real. Just look it up.
Aggie jokes are the best.
True. I though after pantyshots they`ll rage and spew about it, but all of them took is ok.
It just the type of show they like. In 2011 they mostly ranked Fractale higher than Madoka. (the reviewers there dont follow 3 episode rule..)
Most of the scenery looked really crappy in the show because of budget though. It barely had enough details for one to recognize the places
I thought that in a few shots the place looks like a deserted town, seeing how empty it is on the roads.
Are there any idol popularity rankings from Japan yet?
I'd like to know how good their taste is this season.
So the pantsu were just a one-time thing since the manager forgot to buy some shit and further episodes won't have any real panties?
Yamakan must be doing something right if even normalfags from ANN likes it.
I predict this show will be a financial success.
Yeah the real city looks better, the only exception I found yesterday was the stage where they preformed their Christmas live, it looks pretty crappy on a normal day. (Homeless people were sleeping under the pile of umbrellas and other shit to the right, that's probably where Yamakan will end up)
>No "in the future, it will be the future, and that future is indeed the future"
Sorry, no immersion.
>Haruka just got fired from 765 Pro and now is working for Yamakan.jpg
>singing and dancing Nyaruko OP2
Did TOSHINOU KYOUKO or Asumin approve this?
I feel cheated.
I sure am glad I voted 16 times for her.
>worst love live
It scary to think, that from what was shown of the characters, i would probably able to lure few of them in my van that is parked inside dark valley with promise of sweets and tasty food.
The other should fall for "Idol Auditions"
manager was best Girl rip
She returns in 3rd episode
>gratuitous panty shots
Speaking about it. What exactly do summaries say?>>100090072
google translate is horrible
>watching dance scene in slow motion
>can't see Kaya's pantsu
This is bullshit
Watch the movie.
God damn it. Just finished both Movie and ep 1. Truly monumental. It just goes to show that you just need borderline decent animation and a visionary script and idea to make one of the landmark animes of 2014.
Absolutely stunning. Well done Yamakan.
You got saved anon.
God damn it. Right seed needs more details. How the fuck can they mess up the reference picture on the left?
We've been over this.
She made an effort to not flash because she's actually the most pure.
Episode 2 = Although the girls doubt the yakuza guy, they agree to work with him. However he makes more and more requests and the situation ascalates.
Episode 3 = Tange comes back and the members have their first apprearance on TV (weather forecast and cooking show). Minami is very hungry
Episode 4 = The WUGs now have their own radio show and prepare for their second live concert. However, there are some unpleasant rumors about SENTAA and her being in I-1 Club before joining WUG.
Episode 5 = They are having their second life concert soon, but on the same day I-1 Club is also having one in Sendai. The WUGs practice really hard and advertise their own concert
Or, you know, nopan.
Kaya is too pure for that.
>one of the landmark animes of 2014
These episodes summary really reminded me of im@s.
We'll see how they pull this off though.
More like every time she flashed they were obscured because she's probably some animator's waifu.
Maybe "life performance" is the better term here, since they're not a band
Shows dealing with idols always bored me like Idolmaster and Love Live.
>However he makes more and more requests and the situation ascalates.
But it's made by THE Yamakan, anon!
It would be fucking nothing, matsuda will step in like a proper harem mc he is and save the day.
Mio Honda gonna save anime.
This Anon preaches the truth.
I'm really interested to see if this anime will continue into greatness or take a turn as a trainwreck.
>They are having their second life concert soon, but on the same day I-1 Club is also having one in Sendai. The WUGs practice really hard and advertise their own concert
I-1 club confirmed for evil troll group.
If anyone is going to step in it's going to be Kaya.
Matsuda is way too beta for now.
Nah, pretty sure it was coincidence. They are after all, just finished building their Sendai branch concert hall. H-Club is too popular to even bother with them.
Kaya? You mean the flasher? Pretty sure she would enjoy the attention she got there.
>Implying he won't bash the yakuza's head with his guitar
>harem mc he is
I didn't see her panties, where did you?
She's perfectly pure thank you very much.
Look it's in her character description:
Kaya Kikuma is an 18-year-old third-year high school girl who is responsible for the group's sex appeal and fashion.
She's obviously going to be the one to object against Sudo's perverted demands.
>convince the other girls its fine to flash their panty and told them just to enjoy their performance
>not flashing it herself
>all the other girls are now labeled as slut and lower their popularity
>she is now the most popular girl in the group
Are the panties they flashed based on their own?
I hope Yamakan's anime saves us from the clutches of KyoAni.
KyoAni fans are blind and idiotic, incapable of realizing there is nothing but lifeless autistic blobs.
The problem is, their shows used to look pretty(And still are I guess, if you can stomach the artstyles), which attracted these morons into thinking they were good because of that, and now they're too fanboyish to back off, thus the sales never end.
WUG however is not pretty and dressed up, because Yamakan is too busy giving what little money they have to starving orphans, and because it's not pretty, these shallow morons have no interest, they're not intelligent enough to see anything that requires half a thought, so visual are everything to them.
Thus is the sad state the industry is in.
I'd love more of both.
How about... A group of christmas cakes in various life circumstances trying to form an idol group?
Anon you have to wake up and accept that cute idol girls doing cute idol things will not save anime.
Instant fail, no-one would consider it.
It already saves it, it's the second most sold anime this season.
Most sold =/= saving anime
Saving anime means not only does the otaku can watch it and say its good but also anybody else who watch it.
>most sold anime this season.
First of all, only the movie sold well.
The anime series is currently at the lower half of the bunch.
By this definition Ghibli studio saving anime all year err year.

I expect Chuu2 to fall off the top 100 after a few weeks in.
Sekai Seifuku, Nisekoi, WUG will be in the top 100.
>Episode 3 = Tange returns
I will find you and cut you if this is false
ANN is the most disgusting normalfag place on the internet.
ANN says its deep masterpiece saving anime
well there was samurai flamenco which was some what realistic at the beginning .... but that went bananas and beyond the exceptations
Barristers aired and looks like blast - more sakuga than whole season of KLK and SD, great aciton and fanservice. 2ch expects it to be first in sales.
however that being umetsu anime, doubtful
That was a shame. I liked original Samumenco, i loved Samurai Gorilla, i endured King Torture... but then it went full retard. Latest episodes are just boring sentai with horrible animation.
That's tv movie WUG, tv series is lower
Movie still counts, its basically just first 3 episodes and it aired on TV
Funniest post of the day.
Well, Golden Time realistic from setting standpoint. Ghost is just MC being shizophrenic.
That said its hardly a good example, since realism does not simply mean absense of giant mecha and mahou shoujos. It does not portray or even try to human life realistically - its another escapist romantic light novel. The setting does not matter, it could be love triangle of astronauts on mars -it will bethe same shit.
>Rich as shit 10/10 foreigner waifu who will love you no matter what falls in love with a completely average guy in 2 days after friendzoning him.
Yeah, I'm not buying it. He was friendzoned hard.
>Ghost is just MC being schizophrenic
No. Golden Time is NOT realistic by any means.
You're just trying to amend your ridiculous mistake. Stop, now. At least learn to know when you're making a fool of yourself.
You know, split personalities and shizophrenia are real. Even sleep walking is.
I told that GT is escapist fantasy, however its in normal modern setting. Just a generic female written love novel.
This show is shit.
Underage are not allowed here.
>Completely average guy
You talking shit about Tada Banri's swag?
Someone please love her.
Sorry, I like Nanami's overconfident and sassy personality, but I have a special weakness for Minami's genki attitude and innocence.
She's my 2nd favorite.
I assume many missed the plot elemenet but here you go:
Mayuu tells the dull girl that quote/speech form she read in a book of quotations.
This is part of idol training, since they have to give interviews and pretend to be smart, so at least study figures of speech.
Nanami then uses "smart" quotation about happyness and something
Mayu smirks at her since she recognizes that Nanami learned said quotation from the same book as her, as she also trained to be idol
The real-life version looks like complete shit compared to the nice 2D one
What the fuck? There was a 50 minute OVA before the actual episode?
Japan is so ugly in real life. I don't think I could stand living in such a place.
It's a city. What did you expect?
If it wasn't for Minami, she would be my favorite
look at that sameface
I can't wait for rape doujins. I can't wait for Miyuu endo-kousai doujins.
Do you think Miyu has fucked any of the fat otaku her patronize her maid cafe?
I doubt that people actually liked it that much when the season has just begun. The concert ticket and other goodies most likely got the idol otaku and ticket scalpers preemptively buying that shit up more than usual. opinionwise, the first episode felt like a boring version of idolm@ster with only enough comedic moments such that you could count them off of one hand and your typical panty fanservice.
>No panty-shot for Yamakan
So I watched the first episode of this and I'm genuinely curious as to why so many people adore it.
It's not just a few of you. Lots of people with seemingly good taste think this is a great show.
But it just seemed so... boring to me.
We adore it?
Like 75% of the fanbase so far are people just watching because Yamakan and seeing if he will fail and doing ironic shitposting about samefaces, pantyshots, moe, etc.
ANN loves it unironically and they usually have pretty good taste
So you wanted another shitty sweet IM@S clone. Got masterpiece instead, too deep for you, thus got bored.
Go rewatch IM@S? People like WUG for entirely different reasons.
I like them both for the same reasons.
Its great. A log of great books, movies, theatre shows are "boring" - either requiring to use ones brain, preexisting knowledge or deal with things unpleasant and not enjoyable commonly,
You find it boring since you await entertainment, you are not interested in seeing girls stories, how the idol industry shown in different light, melancholy of town after disaster. Its fine.
War and Piece must be one of the most boring books ever. WUG however is not, its entertaining - just not in a form you expected.
You are the shitposter, please dont project your idiocy on other people here, let along majority.
WUG is genuinely liked by a lot of people.
ahahaha oh wow ANN is probably the shittiest place to talk about "taste". Filthiest normalfags on internet.
That said once in a millinium stars align and one might have same impression as them.
>WUG is genuinely liked by a lot of people.
My sides. Not even him.
Check WUG threads, delusional retard.
I barely even post in these threads.
It's cute you like the show and want a good fanbase following it, but try not to get sidetracked to your group than the show itself.
I watched it. Three times. Twice from BD.
