He did it.
Yamakan finally made a successful anime.
You can always bet on a shitty idol anime.
Then why did AKB0048 sell bad?
That's the movie though.
The actual show is far from that.
Because it has AKB
for a Yamakan production maybe. Though the movie is cheap as hell. Shit will drop with the later tv anime volumes.
Does the actual show come later or is already out?
>Cute girls doing cute things #257832 sells well
Whoda thunk it.
Didn't the movie absolutely tanked at box office?
Thats the iM@S movie right?
I don't understand the graph... The scales are inverted...
So... Uhhh... What is it showing exactly?
Are you implying that's a bad thing?
You should have used an image of Tohka for this post.
Movie is the equivalent of vol.1 here.
It's just two first episodes put together.
Is the movie the one with fuckton of shit bundled with it?
Its only on episode 2. Way to early to talk about success. Currently the only reason anyone is buying it is they are expecting pain and suffering as they lose their virginity one at a time in cheap hotel rooms and backstages.
>#20 for days
If it keeps that up we are looking at 20-30k sales.
It's still a movie, something that didn't air on TV.
Movies ALWAYS sell better than TV anime
It's still doing pretty mediocre for a movie though
I have a soft spot for VA newbies and I hope this sells well for their sake.
I'm actually a little sad that it might fail due to Yamakan's toxic name.
If it's not available on Japanese TV then why is it on Crunchyroll?
It either aired or was steamed in Japan.
>If it's not available on Japanese TV then why is it on Crunchyroll?
Because Crunchyroll licensed it. Do you think Little Witch Academia aired on TV?
We sure got a lot this season
japan has shit taste, as always
Everyone could watch LWA on youtube.
It was on nico and the rating was atrocious.
It was glorifying AKB48 way too much. That was just disgusting.
The movie is really more like just an hour-length OVA; it's the first two episodes smooshed together because TV schedules aren't designed to accommodate a 14-15 episode show. I guess Yamakan put this set in theatres as a "movie" because that's the only way to get this rather pertinent info out there at the proper time, since OVAs normally come bundled in as extra episodes on BDs, or as standalone releases after the TV series is all out. In this case the movie is effectively the vol. 1 by which we're supposed to judge how this is doing, since it is effectively episodes 1 and 2. Or I guess if you want to be technical it's volume 0, episodes 00 and 0.5.
As to why he had the intro be the movie, and not the final 2-3 episodes, I don't know. Or wait, I do know, they haven't actually finished making those last eps yet. Kind of odd but whatever. Given how well the movie is doing in sales several weeks into the TV series airing, this shows that a good amount of people are eating their words on all the yamakan shit talking (which still continues in wug threads there unabated) and buying it. If you want to buy WUG the TV series you've obligatorily got to start with the movie first since it's essential to setting up things. Like I said the movie is essentially the real volume 1 here. And it's doing fantastic.
I'm trying to aboid Yamakan's anime whenever possible.
Shut up with your wall of text, it's still a movie no matter what you say so doing that much is expected.
And "doing that much" in context is pretty bad, it will probably do 7-8k at most, for a movie it's pretty shit
I wonder how guys.
step it up anime
It's more like an OVA.
Is Yamakan actually gonna make it?
Nico ratings = prone to anti-yamakan troll army. The fact people are still buying wug in appreciable quantities, enough that you can't ignore it and write it off as another bomb, means a fucking lot. People are ignoring all the shitposts or biting the bullet and secretly admitting liking the show by buying it on one hand and shittalking it on the other because that's the futaba culture. Judging from sales either a totally non-futaba related group has saved yamakan's ass or the otaku crowd there has truly become heavily tsundere for yamakan. Being the subject of tsun and dere is much better than just being the clown getting shitted on for years, Yamakan scored bigtime.
And it's well deserved imo; wug is surprisingly good and engaging, better than love live so far imo (and I am not one to easily toss LL under the bus, especially for fucking yamakan of all people), and I'm still impressed that they had a nicely animated dance sequence in the movie instead of doing cg dance crap like everyone else now.
Agreed. Kawamori and Okada had an opportunity to do something amazing but it came out half-baked. Hopefully Yamakan's efforts will produce something idol-related that isn't crap
he said shitty
This basically means that the anime itself is 7-8k range. That's what I was saying with that wall of text your slow ass can't even take 2 minutes to read. Or I'm sorry would that take 20 minutes for you? Is English not your first language or something? Too bad.
We all know the reason for that.
That ain't Airi.
>This basically means that the anime itself is 7-8k range
Like I said movies always do a lot better than an anime.
Even if it's a prequel or whatever, the numbers you will see for the movie will be very different compared to what you will see for the anime.
Which is normal, movies are more of an 1 time thing impulse buy, to buy an anime series you have to be prepared to use a lot of money
There's always an exception to the rule.
You can safely assume that 90% of idolshit will sell well.
What about Aikatsu?
Ugh, I don't get why people like this shit.
Animu movies are typically either a standalone one-off (original), or are released -after- a series/property has already established itself as popular enough to merit getting a full-blown movie because it's a safe investment. For example Index, Nanoha and Madoka got movies.
On the other hand WUG's "movie" is not part of this typical formula, being done as an intro before we knew anything about this series at all. If you split the 52 minutes in two that's two 26 minute halves.. take in the fact that the last couple of minutes of that was credits and you're at about 48 minutes, which is 24x2, that literally is two TV episodes squashed together. It's obvious that that's what it is, as was said for whatever reason they put it out separately so that the TV series would get a jump-start since they otherwise couldn't fit all that in to a 1-cour.
Aikatsu is aimed at little girls, they don't buy anime
Then your statement 90% idolshit will sell well is fucking false.
I can also say that 90% of yamakanshit will not sell.
But look at what is happening now?
Dude stop, you can call it whatever you want but every official statement state it as a movie.
The movie is a good standalone, and the tv series is more like a sequel to it.
It's not a real movie.
It's just 2 episodes turned into an OVA. No different that a normal volume with 2 episodes.
And it was on Nico.
It doesn't sell.
The movie is literally half the price of an actually volume BD price and comes with extra goodies similar to what you found in ordinary BD volume.
Shut up already, it's not a question of formula or whatever, it's a question of format.
For a movie the price is different, the promotional status is different, the 特典 are different and you don't have the 1-2-3 oops you don't have the 4 dangling in front of you
You obviously don't know how stuff sell in Japan so stop being so fucking delusional please
>Its a movie
>bacause I said so
You need to pay to watch it on Nico before it went free after the cinema screening is over. What you "feel" or what you "thought" here is irrelevant. Seven Idols is a movie, Yamakan says so.
Who are you to question the word of god?
Lots of things are on nico, nico itself isn't as widespread as you think. And yeah it's a "true" movie, it's considered as such so what you think doesn't change anything, fucking stop already
>This basically means that the anime itself is 7-8k range
No it doesn't. The later volumes wont nearly sell as much as the movie.
They all look the same
Where's that image that compares the K-On! butts?
Aikatsu sell though, just not BD.
For example there is a reason why Precure still continue despite selling nothing in term of DVD/BD, it's still one of the most popular and succesful anime franchise in Japan.
Aikatsu is no Precure but it's still really popular these days
Like it or not the movie is effectively the vol 1 sales, and hence the TV series' vol 1 is effectively the vol 2 sales. Hence people already getting the TV's vol 1 are people who like the series enough to trust that the rest of it will turn out good, and are signifying that they are throwing money down on the whole thing already. For an anime-original, that kind of confidence is extremely hard to get; for example Sekai Seifuku is futaba's most-anticipated show of the season but even so, they are being very very antsy with the pre-orders for it. Sure SS's rankings spike way up to the top, but only briefly after the episode airs; this shows there are a lot of people still waiting to be sold on the show (most will in fact wait until the whole thing is done before putting in a vol 1 order); WUG is in the same boat.
>Like it or not the movie is effectively the vol 1 sales
It's also half-price. They might buy it to support the show and not buy any other volumes.
What if they are just trolling the preorder?
The nico crowd clearly didn't like it, are they just trolling the rating? closet fan?
I find it highly unlikely.
Guess we'll just have to wait and see then. The TV show is at close to the same quality of the movie so far for better or worse; the real deal-breakers will be coming soon depending on how real shit gets or doesn't get with the girls.
Shit already got way more real in ep2 (covering the fact that there are shithead "fans" like the drunks at the resort along with shithead producers catering to them) than I think any other idol anime I've seen, and that hasn't really made a negative dent in the rankings, so people are kind of gearing themselves up for it go anywhere. If it was gonna bomb hard we could have already seen it drop like a rock if the otaku got scared off by ep2 not being so rosy, in other words so far so good in terms of overall sales outlook.
I wonder what the owner of this fine establishment thinks of its portrayal in WUG.
He probably wishes he had bitches in white bikinis running around
>Fuck, I can't do any business for a while because now we're going to get a surprise inspection
For the owner, free publicity.
For anyone who goes there.. well they might be pissed. Not sure if the owner values the perceived integrity of the local patrons or the prospect of his place getting national attention more.
The only reason Japan hates Yamakan is not his direction or anything, but his Twitter shitposting addiction.
He cant spend a day without being rude to someone or talking like an asshole.
I hope it sell tons, so he can only make the "otaku pandering garbage" that he loathes so much from here on out.
Because anime fans don't care about AKB48 and AKB fans don't care about anime?
It aired at Niko, and pretty much everywhere else in the world. WUG is super popular in China now for example.
His next project ought to be Lucky Star season 2. Just to completely confirm that the otaku have defeated and captured him.
AKB was abomination of idol show, while AKB itself is abomination of idol group. It was doomed to fail.
china doesn't count
they are brain dead hardcore weeaboos who consume anything japanese
In other news:
Call for "help" by Yamakan was answered by his production Holding USP.
Episode 2 production was assisted by Liden Films of USP.
Episode 3 sheduled to have Trigger.
I only had to sexualize the MCs.
This is how anyone saves anyme?
Kiddyshit that isn't Precure never sells
So Ep 3 is the rape episode?
His tweet was only a few days ago, those episodes would have been finished already.
Stop replying for obious troll. Its LRD level shitposting with "token lolis"
>Trigger will be saving anime from both directions next week
I don't want Manager to lose his way in Ep.3
Trigger is gonna DP an anime?
Ep 3 is not about manager.
They get 3 minutes at the weather report segment of TV show. Nothing unusual happens, but l-1 Club fans see it and recognize Mayu. Shitstorm on 2ch ensues. People search web and find Spa "event" photos uploaded on the web with WUG girls.
Shitstorm ensues irl and on 2ch.
Meanwhile l-1 Club girls are in Sendai. They run into Mayu, and bitchslap her telling she is using their reputation for own promotion and is tainting it with her slutty scandals.
Title of the episode is "scandal"
>Manager gives the WUGs their uniforms in ep 3 (presumably)
>Subtle hints dropped by Trigger that they are life-fiber uniforms
Yamakan is dirty LIAR!
>Underages prostitutes makes money.
You are just mad you cant look as sharp as he.
>yamakan is a hypocrite
>shinbo is honest
He is an anime director that hates anime and the otaku that watch anime, he IS an asshole.
Yamakan is a hack
Japanese piggu please go.
I'd say he's more like someone who has aspirations to bring more high-level artistic ambitions to the medium, but not only relentlessly talked shit (and then ate his words by directing Lucky Star), but failed to make something really compelling (Fractale) after that and continues to shittalk to this day.
If he just laid low, stayed humble and never touched Twitter, he could have been a rising star. He doesn't get the politics of the industry, aka you can only talk shit once you're perceived as having a resume that allows you to do that. Hell most of the world works like that really, he's just an idiot for ignoring that.
Basically an arrogant prick. It's only normal to loathe him.
As half assed as it might be, he at least tries. That's more than you can say about 99% of the faggots that bitch about otaku or the state of anime.
>He is an anime director that hates anime and the otaku that watch anime, he IS an asshole.
that's a good thing in my mind at least, the problem is that he's unfortunately just as bad himself
>it's the first two episodes smooshed together because TV schedules aren't designed to accommodate a 14-15 episode show.
Are you fucking serious? So I'm just wasting my time watching the movie right now?
No, the movie is episodes 1 and 2.
The TV series starts on episode 3.
Directors and producers that bitch about otaku and the state of anime are just mad because their prime has passed or they think their work is better than it really is.
Pretty much this. I'd just say he's passionate. I sat in on his talk at one of the Otakons in the past and he's a reasonable guy.
Outside of children's programming and family shows, anime is and always was aimed at otaku. Making anime that isn't for otaku while aiming it at the otaku market to force some sort of paradigm shift that isn't going happen is why Yamakan is a miserable failure.
It is kind of ironic that he was the one that started the rot by directing Haruhi. I dare say that Haruhi is responsible for all the haremshit and trash LN craps that we are getting nowadays.
No, the movie is literally a stand-in for what should have been TV episodes 1 and 2. They just released it separately because that wouldn't all fit in a usual 1-cour. So skipping movie = you are in essence starting at episode 3 and hence will have totally missed the introduction of the girls and also the manager/president, the background of the situation etc.
There is like 2 minutes of briefly touching on the movie content in TV ep 1 (besides replaying the end dance) and it's way way inadequate for watching the movie itself.
Yamakan, go die in a fire.
Everything you don't like about anime has been around for decades, long before Haruhi, Lucky Star, K-ON, or whatever show makes you mad. Only casual idiots that don't know anything about anime and hacks like Yamakan from the anime industry actually believe that.
If you really think they look the same you are either not a real butt-lover or you should get your eyes checked.
You wanted cellulite bottoms instead?
This. OP's graph is for the movie, which is "officially the lowest grossing movie based off a TV anime ever made, making only 10 million yen at the box office" (>>100331629)
Of course the graph is impressive, because it includes the first days when the movie wasn't even out. It has preorders around 1,5k, which is exceptionally bad.
Of course the Yamakanfags (or IRC trolls?) try to put it not against other movies, but against regular show volumes. This is nonsense, as shows usually get spikes after airing, once a week, while movies are shown several times daily in the cinemas. Movies are NEVER put together or are compared to show volumes.
WUG's show volumes do mediocre at best, and there is a significant drop if you compare the movie points to the show points. Probably because the movie is only have the price of an average anime show volume and comes with a CD, so more people are willing to cough up $29 one time, but snub the show itself.
>It has preorders around 1,5k, which is exceptionally bad.
This has to be some elaborate ruse.
It dropped 2 spots since then. WUG is finished.

More like because movie is essentially a v1 while theoretical v1 is more like v2. v1s almost always do much better than the rest until release date gets close, especially in case of original anime.
Fact that it's cheaper than usual isn't as significant as you make it out to be. 3k ¥ is still quite a lot of money and if someone is willing to buy the movie it means he might buy the whole series if it satisfies him.
Anon, joking isn't bad but spreading misinformation is nothing to be proud of.
>One time only 3k
>6 BDs a 6k
You must be retarded if you don't think that this price isn't a significant improvement for the sales.
They're generally accustomed to prices around 5-7k for their limited edition BDs, so 3k with the usual bonuses is dirty cheap in comparison.
>officially the lowest grossing movie based off a TV anime ever made
It's Airi's birthday today.
Does this count as a scandal?
So is anime saved?
Not really since she's not a real idol.
