Why do they do this?
Why do they feel the need to remind me that my cute 2D grills are voiced by 3DPD?
They are trying to push the VA and make them popular
I think they're cute.
Except for Mayu. and Kaya.
WUG is also a real idol group.
The anime is kinda made to promote them.
Because the entire show is just marketing for those 3DPD girls careers.
Does the whole 'moe gestures' (flashing the peace sign, double hand waving etc) seem so fake and artificial to anyone else?
Maybe it feels more genuine and sincere to the Japs but it's one cultural relativity which I can't bring myself to like about them.
Oh god those girls are hideous. Why can't they just get some Korean idols to replace them?
because fuck you.
I'm more disappointed by the fact that the staff in the background don't join in with the idols when they make a peace sign at the end of the preview.
The two on the right aren't that bad, especially the one sitting down.
Yamakan puts a ton of effort in WUG to make you draw connections between the show and its 3D parallels- the character names are modeled after their VAs, the VAs dress (at least their hair) like the characters, and they're putting a lot of focus on popularizing the VAs.
While on one hand it's a publicity stunt, on the other, it fits pretty well with Wake Up, Girls!' more cynical perspective on the idol industry.
Because they haven't animated episode 3 yet, so it's not possible to show an animated preview. Expect more scenes replaced by live action in the future.
No such thing as pure. Just marketing yourself as pure. Wish I could erase that thought out of my mind and enjoy those moments, but every time they do that I just think they're thinking
>God I could go for a smoke right now
>Who is this nerd anyway? Get lost already jesus.
>Who the hell even invented this retarded peace sing. It's so dumb.
Fuck off, retard.
Sounds like a personal problem.
>Does the whole 'moe gestures' (flashing the peace sign, double hand waving etc) seem so fake and artificial to anyone else?
Oh absolutely, things that work in 2D don't necessarily work in 3D.
Glad to know I'm not alone on this one.
Because when the 2D idols fuck for jobs the 3D idols will also fuck for jobs.
Miyu 3dpd best 3dpd
But 3D did that awful shit before 2D.
It's like knowing the characters at Disneyland actually hate kids, it takes the magic out of everything.
She has a weirdly shaped head.
Twintails reminds me of my cousing, hot damn.
Fuck stop that. No they don't.
Why does this show makes itself so easy to troll?
Go back to tumblr, OP.
this is not for you amirecan viewers. it's for the japanese otaku who eat this shit up.
So by the end it'll just be a J-Dorama? Not sure if want.
I hope you get arrested for this rape.
that girl in the middle-right
Who with me?
miyu best idol
>Wearing shoes indoors
Do you want them to put a trigger warning for you next time, OP?
the thing is that disney built a fucking system of tunnels so you wouldn't see the short bald man wearing the mickey mouse costume while smoking and flirting with cinderella
all they are doing here is going "hurro america pig, slut girl real cute? you like"
I will remind you that that is the plot of the next KyoAni show.
It's a public building, I'm pretty sure that's ok.
Yeah Disney is known hiring tons of inexperienced people for their scholarship programs, but Disney's actually pretty strict about hiring people for the costumes. There's even a case where fangirls found out an actor's real name after he got too popular (he played Peter Pan), and Disney fired him just because it ruined the character's suspension of belief.
I agree, real Minami is rather cute.
Just be glad you will never experience the akwardness of visiting a moe cafe in japan.
Fuck yeah, best in 2D best in 3D
Are you suggesting an elaborate system of tunnels to hide the private lives of idols? Because I really like the sound of that.
Do you think these was all an elaborate scheme by Yamamoto and his friends to get some young idol pussy?
Yamakan is a lifelong virgin.
Why would one of Japan's greatest heroes need an elaborate scheme to get young idol pussy?
The "peace sign" is actually V for victory
the american soldiers made the japanese girls they were raping hold it next to their face and say "victory" while they were raping them
>short bald man wearing the mickey mouse costume while smoking and flirting with cinderella
It reminds me of Karekano
>tfw being an oldfag
That never happened. You're thinking of Russian soldiers in Germany or Japanese troops in China.
this is the first time i wrote this line.
what do you mean by "everytime"?
do you mean "i laugh everytime i read this post" or...
ARE YOU FROM THE FUTURE?
>3DPD doing the Shaft head tilt
Glorious nippon never invaded anything.
Gook pigs attacked glorious nippon and had to defend!
Except for China.
It's an attempt to tether you back to reality. It's because they care about you and they want real life to be bearable for you. It's because anime is best enjoyed from an outside perspective, rather than that of a person who has been completely consumed by the 2-dimensional world.
Yeah, Anno did that 16 years ago already
They saw AKB0048's BD bonuses and thought people would like it if they did the same thing. The thing is, nobody gives a shit about WUG because they're newbies, so it's useless.
Their gestures are forced and not cute at all. Also the thing that annoys me in that kind of videos is that idols always have obvious as fuck makeup. Even the AKBs are like that. It's like the person who does their make-up has no idea what they're doing.
Normal seiyuus never have this problem. Maybe idol otakus like seeing badly made-up girls.
This is what the typical faces of 'idol' otaku look like.
The anime (and anime in general) is far too kind to their physical portrayal.
I guess 2D almost always makes something look better.
Just because all idol otaku are subhuman scum doesn't mean they all look it.
Can i get a video in this thread? seems pretty interesting and I'm too lazy to search for it
I remember that. Although the video I had replaced it with the american VAs instead so I had to skip the previews.
Image related. This is what happens when you get dual audio, they think it's okay to use the American video.
Well it looks like I wont be getting any boners for the rest of the month.
Oh come on now, what the fuck
Honestly I already find them awkward enough in anime.
>MUH 2D! 3DPD AMIRITE GUYZ
You pathetic faggot
>le "ironic" shitposting
No anon, you're pathetic. Fuck off back to wherever you come from.
I come from here and it wasnt ironic
The fear anons have of real women even just pictures of them is fucking pathetic
>I come from here
Pure cancer. I bet you weren't even aware of the internet when 4chan was created. Go back to /b/.
How does it feel to be a complete retard who can't even comprehend what this thread is about?
Fuck off to /v/ or /b/, you'll fit right in.
Sure thing man
Look another beta faggot
Which seiyuu was it who got death threats from otaku when they found out she had a boyfriend?
most of them?
Those are idols I think.
What the fuck is wrong with those people ?
I don't understand. You're upset that real people are involved in the production of anime? That's stupid.
Otaku are scum, more news at 11.
i never want to see seiyuu ever
When you work in media and especially marketing, you have to bend over several times a day and take it up the ass to keep your job.
They are doing it under duress as it's hard to break out in the industry. They want to come across as otaku-friendly as possible. Don't forget the 2chan faggots are extremely autistic about 'purity' and 'moe', a smallest of slip can piss them off and a legion will reign down upon the VA.
It's a suffocating environment to work, I would go mental in a week.
Stop trying to fit in, you don't.
That has to be awkward as fuck, how do customers there suspend their disbelief? I'd just be thinking "She's only saying this and doing this because of her job, she probably think the customers here are fuckups, etc etc." And in general being nothing at all like certain ideal maid cafe employees.
Perhaps I just have too dim a few of people, I am on /a/ after all.
Yeah. Basically this.
They have been getting back to prr november levels lately.
Either a janny killed himself and they had to replace him or they took a vacation, for which i wouldn't blame them.
John Lennon was shoot by a fan. Idol industry in not at that stage yet.
Few people out of thousands of fans acting like retards is nothing new anywhere.
>That has to be awkward as fuck, how do customers there suspend their disbelief? I'd just be thinking "She's only saying this and doing this because of her job, she probably think the customers here are fuckups, etc etc."
Those are my exact thoughts on maid cafes.
I don't understand how this differs from literally every serviceperson. You aren't actually autistic enough to believe strippers like you?
I have known from the start that this is all an act. Who would want to sincerely serve a bunch of sick minded otakufags?
There's a major difference between going to a miad cafe and going to see a stripper.
Why are you people so autistic? Why can't you just learn to enjoy fun things, even if they're "fake"?
A whore, then.
Not really. Not at the basic, fundamental level. They're both about someone pretending to be something they're not for the entertainment of others, in a live setting.
I am too autistic to go to strip clubs, if that is what you mean.
I mean, at least with cartoon girls I am demeaning something that does not exist. Real life prostitution and strip bars just sicken me.
>implying that hasn't been tried
It's not like I enjoy worrying about this shit you know.
Behind your back, the so called idols chain smoke and abuse your ancestors just to vent the bullshit they have to put up with. Then go back out and smile like a stupid fucking doll on display.
It's a depressing job.
I don't see how a maid cafe is "fun".
I don't find awkward things fun.
It's the intensity. With service people they're just being polite because it's common politeness, with maid cafes there's a level of stuff that makes it feel really fake
Someday robots will be dubbing anime instead of people.
>if it's common, it's not fake
And? Seriously, give me a good reason as to why I should feel guilty, responsible, or bad about this. Give me a good god damned reason.
Am I the one forcing them into that situation? No, I'm not. All I'm doing is enjoying their cuteness. Stop trying to make me feel guilty about liking cute things, like Yamakan is trying to do.
>he doesn't know about 2.5D
>hes never seen an attractive seiyuu
I feel bad for you, OP
No, what I mean is there's a difference between someone serving you a beverage with a smile and...well what happens at maid cafes.
it makes me happy that twintails is equally retarded irl
The doesn't count because he was forced to kill John Lennon by Catcher in the Rye.
I guess for Westerns, they really cannot wrap their head around the idea of "prostituting false companionship" outside of psychiatrists and people who are supposed to "fix" you. On the same note, in Eastern cultures, the idea of trying to "fix" your mental issues is a big no-no because you are not supposed to have mental issues, so they go to places like these under the guise of debauchery and paying for a service to experience something which is almost human in their lives.
B-but all idols are lesbians r-right? That's what /u/ told me, they wouldn't lie.
Maid cafes are hilarious.
It doesn't exist.
Twintails the best
>Implying the workers at maid cafes don't get off to the idea of master/servant relationships
No I am not asking you to feel guilty. I am talking about those idiots who actually support these idols and promote the nonsense that goes on in the industry.
Does it even matter? This show is shit anyways
Yamakan is 2.5D.
If I was a rich global entrepreneur with enough power to get away with shit, I would hold important business meetings in completely inappropriate places like maid cafes in Japan or at fucking homeless soup kitchens or some shit.
I could never enter or sit in a maid cafe. It's just to fucking awkward.
Are you going out of your way to be too specific so you can "win"?
We're talking about servicepeople whose primary function is interaction with the customers: strippers, whores, "clubs", disneyesque actors. They're all performers, it's all fake.
I seriously don't get what the draw of a maid cafe even 'is'.
>I am talking about those idiots who actually support these idols and promote the nonsense that goes on in the industry.
I support idols and promote the nonsense that goes on in the industry. Do I think it's sad that idols are treated like shit up to and including the point where they make a big break and can support themselves independently, and then are still controlled by their companies? Yes. But I still like idols, and enjoy watching them.
So fuck off, and stop telling me I should feel guilty just because I like cute girls doing cute things.
Well I suppose that'd make things more palatable. I just hate that artificial sheen to it all. I know it's mandated by their job, they know it's mandated by their job. I know there's someone under that uniform who is having to act like they enjoy doing those fucking stupid "magic spells" and shit to make the food taste good.
A lot of those cafes don't even look too good on the interior too.
>giving in to del/u/sions
That way of thinking is exactly WHY you're not a rich global entrepreneur.
Yurifags are dumbasses more news at 11
bitches calling you goshujin sama
This is what the Japanese school system actually believes
It's the truth. Japan had to defend against western imperialism for 500 years.
Fun things aren't fun.
You really should feel bad if you justify supporting the poor treatment of cute girls by greedy businessmen in anyway.
>implying they are cute anyway
>implying their music isn't shit (catchy, but shit)
It's one of the few places where even the most disgusting pigs can go in and be treated as masters.
They sure had it tough
Judging by the butthurt flowing from your posts, you are a neckbeard basement dweller who gets off to fake idols making him feel 'special'.
You need professional help mate.
Although Lyndon Johnson used to do shit like that, although less extreme.
This isn't /jp/
We believe in 2 dimensional girls being pure because it's more realistic than fake 3 dimensional girls.
That makes sense here.
Why should I care about some Jap bitch?
Isn't it the same shit as Hooters basically?
I don't know, I think a lot of girls who work at those places actually enjoy the idea of it. They are either wannabe idols or enjoy some facet of otaku culture themselves. Honestly I think a lot of them are fujoshi who honestly enjoy every second of it. Of course there are going to be customers they don't like, but it's not as though all of them hate their jobs. If they really needed the money, they would just prostitute themselves directly, since maid cafes aren't far off from that really.
It's something that they most likely wanted to do, whatever the reason for that is. It's too niche to be anything else, in my opinion.
I don't justify the poor treatment. I justify enjoying cute things. If the cute things comes along with poor treatment, yes, that sucks, but I'm here for the cute things. If I could change the poor treatment, I would, but I can't.
>you are a neckbeard basement dweller who gets off to fake idols making him feel 'special'.
Where do you think we are?
>/a/ - Personal Blogging General
I honestly believe /a/ has turned into /b/ 2.0 with tumblr and 9fags circulate memes.
>The food is terrible.
>The costumes are cheap and badly designed, looking like they were bought in bulk at a going-out-of-bussiness sale for an amateur porn studio. (Which many probably were.)
>The heavily scripted dialogue/responses are so bloody plastic and fake that nobody should ever be immersed in this.
>The girls are clearly disgusted.
>The atmosphere is awkward.
Maid cafes: Just who the hell keeps going to these things?
Don't ruin the /a/non's doujin fantasy land he lives in. All idols and maid cafe workers are forced to work there and are sexually servicing their bosses. They all hate it and just want to be normal girls, but they can't leave because they have sick grandparents to care for.
Just got here last week, eh? Don't worry, the need to try so hard will fade, with time.
>Where do you think we are?
Don't confuse /a/ with /jp/. Not all of us are fucking losers with mental disabilities.
You remind me of that guy that paid a girl to snuggle with him.
I wonder if the Wug's seiyuu know all about the lewd things that are being said and done to their characters
I'm not saying we are. What I am saying, though, is the fact that you're berating others for being losers with mental disabilities points you out as a massive normalfag.
Normalfags don't belong on /a/. They definitely don't belong on /jp/, but they don't belong on /a/, either.
There's nothing wrong with being normal and being on /a/. But being normal and trying to force that normalcy on /a/ is not allowed.
He's the type of guy to dress up like a little girl and sing along to OP/ED anime and idol shows while dancing his fatass to match the choreography.
I don't understand hooters either
the food is shit, and the bitches are fake
Why would they care? It's just a job.
The fact that you think there's something wrong with this and are berating others for it just proves how much of a normalfag you are. Please, leave the premises immediately.
I thought hooters was different, in that it's a "family restaurant" with stacked girls as the servers, nothing more too it.
There's that buzzword again
What the fuck is Miyuu doing.
Oh yes, it's just a job until girls who aren't even adults yet see shops like this or the one with the dog or pool.
Just by hiring only stacked waitresses as the servers, there's something to it. That said, hooters isn't really the same as a maid cafe, because there's no performance at hooters beyond the outfit and the girls themselves.
That's basically what his argument sounds like.
In the case of WUG, I think these girls had no other options because of the Sendai earthquake so it does feel pretty fake with them. I'm sure they liked the idea of becoming famous and singing and dancing/whatever, but I'm sure none of them really like the path they are using to do it.
You're not even subtle anymore.
"Normalfag" is a buzzword which is used inappropriately with startlingly regularity, yes, but I am using it quite appropriately here.
You are berating and belittling others for acting in ways that bring them happiness simply because these aways of acting deviate from the norm and deviate from the way of acting that brings you happiness.
That is the definition of a normalfag. You are a normalfag. You don't belong on /a/. Please, leave.
Go back to /v/.
What is there to be subtle about? The point of the matter is is that if you berate someone for enjoying something just because it's strange or different, you are a normalfag. That is the very definition of what being a normalfag is.
You don't have to like idols. You just have to not berate others for liking idols.
Oh cut it out, I don't want to think they aren't having fun with it!
Than /a/ is full of normalfags belittling people for liking Naruto.
Don't be a cunt. Using the word "normalfag" does not give you exclusive rights to 4chan. Broadcasting that you are awkward and unpopular irl does not give you epeen. It's just sad.
>personal blogging general
the board itself wouldn't be a general
>Implying anime taste and normalfaggotry are the same thing
I think a better comparison would be theme restaurants. There's one somewhat close to where I live that does medieval dinners, with jousting and jesters and stuff while you eat roast turkey or whatever. I've never been there, so I don't know if the wenches call you sir or what, but that idea of roleplay is part of the experience.
Pretty much. Since "normalfags" don't like "moeshit".
I'm a normalfag for thinking the person in this image should be killed? This is what /a/ has become?
Why are you here, serious question.
You would undoubtedly be more happy on Reddit or Facebook or /b/.
>You are berating and belittling others
Only stating facts
>that brings you happiness
Rapists and Molestors get happiness from their acts too, so that mean we should encourage them? Get real, otaku are scum and sick people that take shit too far and end up terrorizing VA's and the people around them.
>fitting in meme
You're pretty autistic m8.
He's just trolling. Probably.
I swear, reductio ad Naruto-um is like the /a/ equivalent of reductio ad Hitlerum.
>Broadcasting that you are awkward and unpopular irl does not give you epeen. It's just sad.
No one ever said anything like that. The fact that you think that liking idols makes you awkward and unpopular, instead, broadcasts the fact that you are, in fact, a normalfag.
Using the word "normalfag" doesn't give me exclusive rights to 4chan, no. But people like you don't belong on /a/. People who judge others for liking things different than what the mainstream likes. /a/ has no place for people like you.
And I didn't make that claim originally,. but yes, now I agree that you are a freak.
He should be donated to science to see what kind of mental deficiency causes one to have extreme shit taste.
You forgot to memearrow sekrit club.
Yeah, those fags that act like /a/ is some unknown hideout are the worst.
See, more reductio ad Naruto-um. You're misconstruing my argument, and I can't say I appreciate it.
>Only stating facts
You're calling others losers for liking idols. This is the same as normalfags calling you a loser for liking anime. You are a normalfag, you just don't realize it.
>Rapists and Molestors get happiness from their acts too, so that mean we should encourage them?
Amazing strawman. May I have another?
>Get real, otaku are scum and sick people that take shit too far and end up terrorizing VA's and the people around them.
I never supported this. All I'm saying is that because you think I'm a loser because I like idols shows the fact that you are a normalfag and do not belong on this website. Leave. Get out.
Do you even know what that term means? "Trolling"? Because I don't think you do.
"Trolling" is a term which means that I am explicitly expressing an opinion which I do not actually hold for the express purpose of eliciting an emotional reaction from you.
I do genuinely hold these opinions, and the implication that I do not is both immensely ignorant as well as offensive.
all buzzwords are misused, that's why they are buzzwords
Let me see if I can communicate my point better.
lel u mad m8 top kek le dodge much autism wow rusemaster epig
According to Google he isn't.
I dunno why people still think "He must be trolling!" whenever they see somebody going full retard these days, when such things are extremely common.
Easy there normie.
Don't be sad because you'll never fit in /a/, you'll always have reddit.
You don't fit in here, though. People who think it's okay to berate and belittle others for their hobbies don't belong on /a/, never have, and never will. You need to leave. Immediately.
The fact that you even think it's okay to call anybody a "freak" for their hobbies tells me more than anything else you can ever say. Leave. Get out.
This thread is beyond saving
>reductio ad Naruto-um
This phrase comes from someone claiming to be a quality poster that "belongs on /a/".
I was talking about the mad idolfag, not the guy in the pic.
I never claimed to be a quality poster. In fact, I never claimed to belong on /a/. What I did claim, however, is that you, for judging others for their hobbies, are a normalfag, and do not belong on /a/.
I don't see what's wrong with "reductio ad Naruto-um", since people use this argument a lot on /a/. It's essentially the same thing as reductio ad Hitlerum, in that someone tries to invalidate an argument by bringing Naruto up and comparing your argument to Naruto or people who like Naruto.
You can't save everyone.
Seems like sarcasm is not your forte.
But i disagree, /a/ is pretty isolated compared to other boards, go and dig a bit in foolz and you'll see the communities of anime fans that form on other boards because we bounce them, /tv/ calls them /a/ rejects.
Then theres delusional waifufags like OP.
No, they probably are. It's just the whole otaku-pandering part that might be a little uncomfortable for them.
Yes, I'll double-down here.
The meme of using the word "normal" as insult is tiresome and really only used amongst those who are new to the board.
It's been a long time since 4chan was some backwater website. It's popular now.
I'm pretty sure /a/ is hated by every board even though it is the 4th biggest board of 4chan.
>MUH SEKERIT CLUB
>GET OUT NURMALFAG
>Don't be sad because you'll never fit in /a/, you'll always have reddit.
Or could it be that people simply browse multiple boards?
>I never claimed to belong on /a/
>normalfag, and do not belong on /a/
You don't seem to understand logic.
>just want to talk about cute WUG idols
>The meme of using the word "normal" as insult is tiresome and really only used amongst those who are new to the board.
This has never been true.
You can't just make things and up and state them as fact.
>It's been a long time since 4chan was some backwater website. It's popular now.
And look at the state of boards like /v/ and /co/.
That's what people are hoping /a/ doesn't turn into.
>The meme of using the word "normal" as insult is tiresome and really only used amongst those who are new to the board.
I'm not using the word "normal" as an insult. I don't care if you're normal. I'm fine with you being normal. The word I'm using as an insult is "normalfag", which is a completely, entirely different word than "normal". A "normalfag" is someone who attempts to force normalcy upon others, as opposed to simply being normal.
I don't mind normal people. I do mind normalfags. So please, leave, Mr. Normalfag.
No, I don't seem to understand your logic. Please, explain further, as I have no idea what you're trying to say.
I'm not justifying my presence on /a/. I'm telling you that you don't belong on /a/, and that you should leave. Please.
There are a lot of freaks and weirdos out there.
based mods banned the troll and deleted his shitposting
It just makes me happy the evil autists have probably destroyed several of your threads and diminished the kind of discussion you can have greatly.
i'd have sex with all these 3D women
while thinking of their 2D characters
Yeah. I can tolerate waifuism and love for 2D.
But faggots like OP are as bad as normalfags if not worse.
>Get real, otaku are scum and sick people that take shit too far and end up terrorizing VA
That said, anime VA and idols wouldn't have a job to begin with if not for the otaku crowd. In fact, their jobs are created by the otaku demand for cute girls doing cute things.
Today they've been on a roll, hope they keep it up.
When will manager man up?
Now that the trolls are gone,
which wug would you wuv?
I'll go there if they have good food like a big bowl of Ramen or Katsudon even Burger Steak will suffice but all I see are tea and that fucking Omurice. Seriously, why do they just keep serving Omellet Rice although Tea and coffee is always nice
Doesn't justify treating them like dogs.
Someone post that idol who shaved her hair off because she decided to have a relationship with a guy she likes, but had to apologise because her fat otaku fans realised that she is no longer "pure" and unleashed their fury.
fuck off and make your own thread, we're talking about other things here
you mean which wug wud i fug?
No one's justifying that kind of behavior, jesus christ.
All these deleted posts
That's why they have tsundere cafes where they can mock the loser geekboys.
Sure that too
Man why do cafes look like shit?
That was hilarious.
I'm not trying to justify anything, but you seem to hate otaku "scum", and I'm just pointing out to you that without them, most anime VA would just end up in porn or prostitution, or freet their life away at McDonald's or WhateverMart. Otaku shouldn't treat VA like possessions, but VAs should hide better their disgust of otaku.
>Arino as Amuro
I never saw a subtitled version of that
Damn, did that actually happen?

I thought they look kind of cute.
