So I went ahead and decided to give this a shot.

You know, aside from all the Yamakan bashing and what not, I for one was pleasantly surprised at, not only the show itself, but the characters as well.

I honestly think this might just work.

It was good.
>>
Everyone who isn't a buttblasted IM@S fan found it passable. Definitely giving it a shot.
>>
I hope it turns into something too.

Idol shows usually do characters well, and that one song they had can compete with the best of the competition.
>>
Hopefully it isn't just the Movie that's good. But the movie was good.

The characters are great but Yamakan is making them do lewd stuff so early.

The show is a metaphor for Yamakan's existence.

There's not a single anime out there that has a sameface issue this bad. The designs just plain out suck. Then again, you can't really complain considering that the animators can't even cope up with this shit as they are doing now since they are being slave driven, imagine if those designs were actually complicated and good just gonna leave this here as an example of what I'm talking about http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqMCYf1FibU then the animators would most likely end up doing sudoku.

>making them do lewd stuff so early.

I like the approach he's taking, faglouch. A taste of harsh reality sometimes comes off better than all the lovey dovey shit that other shows pass on.

Honestly, as good as having ideals and all that shit is, at the end of the day it's not with friendship and optimism that you can pull through when you're faced with bills to pay and you need to eat in order to stay alive after wasting your youth away.

It's a bold approach, but this is what I'm enjoying about it so far.
>>
>>100317503

Don't be so harsh. Don't forget we are here for escapism. Even if Yamakan-sama attempts some sort of "saving" on us, it's still an idol show.
At least I expect it to be for the most part.
It would be great to see the girls slammed down by the reals of the sho business but I doubt Yamakan has the guts and skills to take us there.

Obviously, but more or so, I believe that it is important to have something that we also can relate too.

Having this said, I feel that the harsh reality aspects that the show portraits deliver this; even though none of us are actually idols trying to make it through the industry obviously.

The question here is not about saving or not saving, since most bullshit around that term doesn't even come into matter here.

The main point is to bring to notice something of more realistic value to the viewer, something that this can relate too in his daily life struggles, something that proves that life isn't all sunshine, willpower driven by friendship and flowers, something that at the end of the day might not even turn out for the best.

That's just how things are; even if we are here for escapism, it's important not to forget this.

I have never worked in the Japanese entertainment industry (but I did work for a small talent agency, have done recording and live performance engineering and session musicianship), but this show is striking me as rather realistic.

I've met this Sado-san guy, I wanted to punch him so bad.
>>
>>100318436
>light

If anything, iM@S was a lot more lighter than this is.

At the end of the day, iM@S never really showed the girls going through such harsh struggles and all of their personalities felt somewhat unreal, with the exception of Chihaya.

WUG so far captures the reality of the business a lot better than iM@S did, in a much more depressive tone.

Now I'm not saying that one is better than the other, to each, each one's opinion; it's just, at the end of the day iM@S had a much more lighter tone and this currently has, and it's not the other way around.

I mostly agree.
Also I did put the word "saving" in quotes.
There I did it again.

The thing about life and anime is a complicated one as the medium is broad enough to encompass some really twisted stuff and it can not, as a whole, be easily accused for the lack of "reality".
However, "reality" in an idol show is a risky business as target audience already has a set of expectations.
We well see. I, for one will stick with the series...I'm intrigued.
>>
>>100318258
The "flat" acting probably stems from the fact that none of the seiyuu are really actors. There are some, like Kaya or Chihaya-looking girl that have nice speaking voices, but I would not be surprised if this show ends up being the only show that these girls get their voices in.

I like idolm@ster a lot as well, but I feel that this is passing off as a more realistic idol show.

>>100318810
One movie and a episode.

And so far I felt a more harsh reality tone on everything, including the characters, than I did on idolm@ster.

As good as the iM@S girls are, face it, most of them are completely unreal.

Aside from Chihaya, who had a massive build-up throughout several episodes for her story, iM@S did little to nothing to make the other girls "believable".

Now I say this even though I like all of them very much.

It's just, in a real world view, it doesn't happen, it just doesn't.

You get stuff like what this guy on >>100318585
said.
Sado-san guy's and people stealing money left & right.
At the bottom line, it's all about the money.

Having worked on a small talent agency, if you were in the producer's shoes and happened to have the problems as WUG is showing, how would you go about and fix them?

Would you close the agency, resort to taking Sado-san's path and whore up the girls, or is there any possible way out of the debt hole?
>>
>>100320846

>>>100318585 (You) here.

I wouldn't whore them up at all. I'm really wondering about the ownership of the agency. Does Tenge own it? If not, who does? How is it still running?

I'd have more shows, even the sidewalk/back of grocery store shows. Steady gigging is great practice for a band, and it is more exposure. The more an audience is aware of the group, the more they might talk about it.

I'd probably push Shimada Mayu's name a bit more, and promote WUG as a 'new generation returning to old values'.

A fire-sale on the CDs might recoup part of their cost, but it would be very important to get a recording done that has Mayu singing with the group.

I'd be careful not to over-expose Mayu at the expense of the other girls, but it is a thin line to walk. Her history and past controversy is an instant boost to recognition, and I'd want to capitalize on that.

Sado's sponsorship could help a lot (but also destroy the image, turning into another MacDonalds not-AKB48). Perhaps there are other sponsors, like local businesses, who would put up money to rent concert venues in exchange for advertising.

If it works anything in Japan like it works here, Matsuda needs to spend way more time on the phone, making contacts and proposals.

Not him, but that could be a good discussion for the thread. Well, if I were in his shoes, first of all I would try to find all kind of alternatives to not to have to resort to whoring up the girls, because this way they could hurt their reputation too early in the game. Alternatives? They could volunteer and do some kind of social work, and meanwhile singing and dancing. I don't know. They are in Sendai, a devastated city, so they could "play" this role for a bit and gain the trust of its inhabitants (and popularity). Better than prostitute your idols for sure.

>>100321584
>I'm really wondering about the ownership of the agency. Does Tenge own it? If not, who does?

I'm actually wondering about this as well.

My biggest fear is that she comes back into the picture once they start to succeed and the money starts rolling in.

Since she's the president and the one who has the ownership rights to the entire group, this will fuck up everything.

Also, on your suggestions, putting WUG as a new generation returning to old values would for sure cement the relationship with the city, I would go for that approach as well, in hope that with this, some better form of sponsorship could surge by.

Giving in to Sado-san's sponsorship is a huge risk; but in all honesty, faced with that or closing the agency, I don't really think that Matsuda has any options..

One thing keeps brothering me though, Matsuda used to be in a Heavy Metal band, knows someone out there who made it through in the scene and still has contact with him/her and was able to get the concert gig set-up thanks to the Metal scene as well.

I wonder why doesn't he try and use more contacts in this area to help the agency; he probably has them.
>>
>>100321584
>If it works anything in Japan like it works here, Matsuda needs to spend way more time on the phone, making contacts and proposals.

Is this the reality of the job?

You just sit in the office and take it up the ass making calls over and over in hope that some of the contacts you make actually shows genuine interest in being a part of what you're promoting? All the time with the best disposition and happy tone in your voice?

This. He really isn't cut for this job and it shows. He recruited one girl while Tange recruited five. As soon as she left, he was still reluctant to assume responsibility for the group despite being the only adult (unless you count Kaya, but let's be real, 18 is no adult), and as soon as Sado showed up he jumped at the chance of being told what to do again instead of having to make decisions.

That said, this makes him a pretty interesting character with lots of room for development, which I hope happens at a steady pace.

The girls and the manager could end up helping each other. That could be a really good development and we could get to know the characters under a new light. The manager growing as a business man and the girls as artists, supporting each other under lots of pressure.

I thought about this as well..

But then it hit me, does this really happen in real life? Is this even possible?

I hate to say it, man... but I don't think it's going to happen.

The manager looks like a bro. He used to be a metalhead and a musician, so he knows what's up. I trust him. He won't sell the girls out and they will help him overcome all the pressure from contacts, money lenders and shit.

You're talking about the guy that tweeted after the earthquake about how Madoka Magica's final episodes should not be post-phoned and that it was at those very times that "we" need to be reminded of the harsh reality "we" live in.

I think the guy's on a mission or something.. so I wouldn't be surprised if the show ends up with a not-so-happy ending.

Aside from this though, it seems like the Japanese are taking well the reality aspects of the show, so.. maybe it can work after all?
>>
>>100322788
That's exactly what I'm hoping for. For all the realism people keep talking about, this is still an idol show promoting a real idol group. I'm expecting so see some typically hamfisted criticism of the corporate exploitation of young girls that is the idol market, yes, and I also expect some down to earth, relatable drama involving the main characters, but at the end of the day the show will be about coming together and overcoming such challenges as a group and growing as individuals. And moe, of course.

Another example of show-off panties are like these from AKB48 (some variety show). They're basically frilly short shorts that idols wear under their skirts. They're panties allowed to be shown off, hence the name.

Idols are supposed to be an ideal to be strived for.
Something you can never reach and is a culmination of excellence in specific properties.
In this case, great dancers, singers with great looks and attitude to boot.

If they are not virgins, that means someone attained them. Thus they are not idols anymore.

That sounds logical, which explains the bald idol incident some time ago as well. So being an idol is like deliberately having your freedom robbed away in exchange for fame? How horrible.

>>100343902
Like I said before, idol is just a buzzword to identify any non-hag celebrity who also has some sort of personal charisma. The term, therefore, is used also for AV idols, gravure idols and variety show idols.
Don't look too much into the semantics because most of the wasei eigo used by Japs has no deep meaning and sometimes is even used improperly.
>>
>>100344157
He could just return it to her, you know.
>>
>>100344144
Let me put it this way.
It's a job. You also willingly put away some of your time and freedom to be a plumber to fix a pipe.

For them they dance and sing and act and socialize as well as be celibate in exchange for loads of money.
Now, after they graduate from being an idol, they are free to do what ever they wish. They can even get boyfriends or get married by this point.
And seeing that many idols retire by 30 something. It's not all bad.
Even more so when you look at the average marriage age of women in japan.

Kill yourself. Its brazzilian deviant art level shit. Wug designs are realistic and girls are really easy to recognize, all with fleshed out characters. In fact, Yamakan specifically demanded designs not to be to flashy so that people would focus on personality, not appearance (or hair color). And it works.

Movie BD is doing good. Box Office however really meh, only 10 million yen in 4 days. Than again, it was shown only in laughtable number of theatres, and calculating the ticket costs most screengs sold well. It not a proper movie to compete with others, but basicaly episode 0 promotion screening.

TV still at somewhat decent position, but obviously people wait for episode 2, most buy the movie instead. The TV BD 1 is more like vol 2 in this case.

bay|NDK|Yamakan> And the one path that anime has been avoiding is to look at reality face on
<bay|NDK|Yamakan> For example, in the live action genre, this genre has been bold in confronting reality. There have been plenty of movies about vietman and i'm sure there will be lots of about 9/11
<bay|NDK|Yamakan> And for japanese live action, there was a lot of live action movies about (missed)
<bay|NDK|Yamakan> (zenkyoto?)
<bay|NDK|Yamakan> And you can say that anime may have been avoiding confrontation with reality, but for something that's supposed to be representative of popculuture, it's lacking
18:19:00 <bay|NDK|Yamakan> And this would be a long story to tell, but if you look at the history of japanese animtion, it's not that long, it's a relatively young genre, and if you look at the oldest one.. but it only goes back to 100 years ago(missed?), and the first feature length is the legend of the white snake which was made 50 years ago
<bay|NDK|Yamakan> so you can say the history of japanes animation goes back 50 years
>>
>>100345076
ay|NDK|Yamakan> And the history of japanese animation only started after the war in the pacific, after it was after, and it's post dated after the zenkyoto student movement, sothe japanese animation hasn't been in existsence with a large social movement, it's always been a peaceful existence.
<bay|NDK|Yamakan> So as a result. It's been nuturing an enviroment where it's been free to be diverse (para)
<bay|NDK|Yamakan> But just as all other forms of art, such as music have done, confronting reality, i think it's time for the genre for japanese animation has come to a turning point, and i think it has to do that, i think just as it was coming to that point to maturity, the great earthquake happened this year.

So I had this dream about Yamakan right after watching the WUG Movie. I think it's an omen that he will save us.

I was in a Special Taskforce led by Captain Yamakan given a mission to clear out an area of Xenomorphs.

Our squad made landfall on a planet and proceeded to exterminate the Xenomorphs with extreme prejudice. But there was just too many of them.

As the Xenomorphs continued to attack, half our squad was killed and the rest sustained severe injuries.

Our taskforce was steadily forced back until we reached a hangar. We barricaded the door and prepared for the worst. As the Aliens screeched and banged the door, we said our prayers as we loaded our rifles for one final stand.

Captain Yamakan looked us in the eye and told us 'Take all the injured men and retreat back to the landing zone. I will handle the Aliens'

Realising what he planned to do, I looked at him and begged him to reconsider 'But sir, there are too many of them! You'll die if you face them alone! We can't leave without you'

But Yamakan stood his ground, against both me and the impending Alien swarm "It doesn't matter. Just go!"

Understanding that Yamakan would not leave with us, I ordered our men to take all the injured and retreat back to the spaceship.

As the last to board, I looked back at Captain Yamakan for one last time. Dual-wielding two rifles he fired at the aliens like a man possessed. Not caring for his own welfare but only for that of his men.

I turned away and ran onto the ship. With the precious minutes our Captain had brought us, we escaped the planet into the darkness of space as Captain Yamakan went down fending off a swarm of Aliens.

In the end, success of the Idol show no matter the approach still depends on the music. We heard to little of WUG so far to judge - the first song is decent, but not outstanding.

So far Love Live leads far ahead of other idol shows in this aspect. Lets see if WUG will have resources to catch up.

I never saw IM@S but I should give it a try.
Dropped Love Live two or three episodes in, the characters were dull except for a couple of secondaries and the CG was ugly.
AKB was fun and I really liked some of the songs. CG was terrible though.
And I'm also loving WUG.

So I think there's really no rule.

If only they'd been a little smarter and tried airing just the movie now and the show next season.

>>100370082
>>100370299
The controversy and delays and QUALITY will just make it more popular. The show has the potential to break 20k BDs if the story ends up being decent just because of all the publicity it's getting from the drama.
>>
>>100370587
I'm not sure you think that will happen
Seriously i'm even surprised it's episode 3 not 2

And the fact that earlier he was asking the public to come to the studio to help animate the show?

That's pretty fucking desperate.

It's not really rare
This time mostly because Tatsunoko sucks even Tatsunoko won't admit that
>>
>>100373262
It's like WUG! really happening. Realistic as fuck.
>>
>>100373065
He's not coming to the "public" he's asking animators who are available to work/help out on it. The director for Shingeki no Kyojin did the same thing.
>>
>>100373302
>>100373186
Oh i forget to say,remember Gatchmen crowds?Tatsunoko fucked up this even it's their own anime,not surprise they keep fucked up for others

Wait, so Tatsunoko is involving in the production of WuG?

Well that explains a lot of things.

Fucking faggots. They could make a break one week or recap episode as some anon said.
Didn't they do that with GirlzUndPanzers?

It was Tatsunoko animator tweeting, and he did not really state he quits.

On other hand, after calling for help, Yamakan specified he calls people to Ordet, not Tatsunoko
>>
>>100373672
Tatsunoko basically in charge of WUG,even animators get the money from ordet
