Can someone explain to me the appeal of the idol group genre?
A bunch of cute girls doing cute things?
This is too many girls though. I like my small group of 4 or 5 girls.
I've noticed the groups have gotten smaller.
12 > 9 > 7
Cute girls doing cute sings.
There are girls, they do cute things, and they DANCE. What else do you want?
They messed with the formula. Nature is correcting itself, we'll be back to 3-5 shortly.
They were foolish to think that could play god.
That's in order to appeal to the largest audience possible.
Cute girls working as hard as japanese salarymen.
Why does WUG look so fucking dull compared to LL and im@s? And yes, I watched all 3, you can judge WUG's book by its cover, it's incredibly boring.
You can't comprehend Yamakan's superior storytelling.
It's the hair colors.
Cute girls doing cute things with catchy tunes and flashy visuals. Also, there's the whole underdog -> top idol inspirational story that everyone can love.
With more girls, you have more potential. You can do more complicated formations and more importantly, with so many girls it's guaranteed that everyone can each find their own perfect one.

It's cute girls working hard towards their dream. Through hard work, they are able to accomplish something they used to only dream about. Anyone who has dreams and ambitions should be able to enjoy an idol series to a degree. The cute factor doesn't hurt.
This is literally backwards.
Cute girls singing, I guess. I can't fucking stand Jpop or idol groups so I really don't watch them
Now, if it was about an all-female No Wave group in the late 70s I would watch the SHIT out of that.
sora no woto was an idol anime
prove me wrong
protip: u cant lol
Personally I like that the cute girls work hard to get to where they are.
I could care less about cute girls doing cure things...
>cute girls doing cure things will never be animated
Idols don't play any instruments besides the rusty trombone.
