Why is this shit so oppressive? I fear for these girls now.
>Captcha: suffered iksomen
I really didn't want to like this show but after episode 2 I had to go download the movie as well. I am not a fan of idol shows. Well I did like AKB0048 but that was only because of the space shit. I find WUG strangely compelling though and it has nothing to do with perving. As to your question I think they just wanted to get us to sympathize with the girls. It had me wanting to kick every fucking guy in that room in the nuts that's for sure.
What do you mean? Right-chan looks like she is having fun.
>I fear for these girls now.
I don't see why. This kind of plot device can only be used once.
Leave it to Yamakan to unveil the truth of the idol industry, which is a cesspool of Yakuza, prostitution, abuse and rape worse than whiteys fucking underage girls in Bangkok.
I so fucking want them to just turn around, grab a Mao-cap, sing the Internationale while proceeding to beat the fuck out of everyone in the room with sticks and meat cleavers.
I dont like the concept of this show. Its girls in their teens pursuing popularity and cashing in on a retarded market.
>of this show.
your first idol anime ?
they asked for it.
I think this is why I like it. It's not following the same formula as other idol shows from what I can fathom. I hope it looks into the darker corners of the entertainment industry. I somehow think it will end up becoming more generic as it progresses though.
>after episode 2 I had to go download the movie
Never like Idol shows, but this one looks promising.
I admit, I'm an edgy-faggot who likes GRIM DARK DECONSTRUCTION shit, and this one is really getting close to it so far.
Well to be truthful I did not realize it was a follow on. So yeah I am retarded if that is how you see it.
The doujins will be delicious.
Especially knowing that these are real idols who voice them and gave them their real surnames.
Yeah, how old are they again?
I get what you mean.
There are such cute girls idoling it up for you, and clearly feeling bad because of the highly revealing outfit.
If I would have been there, things would have been different.
I would have given them an honest cheer from the bottom of my heart, and tell the other guys to fuck back with their uncomfortable remarks.
I'd have done everything in my power for the girls to feel good about their job, instead of feeling dirty and guilty.
which wug wud u fug
Nips have no souls.
>wut wug wud u hug
13, 14, 15, 15, 16, 17, 18 iirc.
hard to choose.
they all have some serious childbearing hips.
Post pictures with Yamakan
One can really see that he bears a grudge against the whole industry.
And that his earnest wish is to save anime.
Good Luck, Yamakan-sensei!
What the fuck? This show is seriously creepy. Japan is fucked up.
These guys did nothing wrong.
They thought they are dealing with a bunch of cheap whores that suck dicks for few bucks.
Blame Matsuda for being a pathetic piece of shit.
You tell 'em, sister! This is just so sick and wrong, fuck those men. Meet you at the Host Club later?
You're mom is seriously creepy for having given birth to you.
Fucking slut knows
I swear to Jesus m8. If someone breaks her, I'll fucking glass him so hard that he will from then on have a quality of life level equivalent to that of a terminal-stage leper patient.
I fucking mean it!
>the show is creepy
Say that after you see some of the more risque junior idols.
>Japan is fucked up
There's nothing wrong with appreciating beauty. Just because it's not a good thing to fuck them, it's ridiculous how people are turning their heads away from what was known as one of the most beautiful thing to human - that is children - since the beginning of time.
I can't wait for the doujins.
>WUG within 5 episodes
>Japan is fucked up.
Ever heard about Toddlers and Tiaras?
Nothing Japan makes is that disgusting.
Show them, Straya cunt!
to >>>/jp/ with you
>it's ridiculous how people are turning their heads away from what was known as one of the most beautiful thing to human - that is children
If this is parody, then it's pretty much spot on.
>hurr 3dpdtrapslesbianspurelovehandholdingsolewdwe'reallgirlshereXD do i fit in yet /a/???
Just see the Senran Kagura games announcements. They really do shit like this (and worse).
I don't know what you mean, but in pretty much all culture children and especially youthful (~10-12 year old) girls were an embodiment of beauty.
That stands true from ancient hellenic culture to the end of medieval age. Then came along America and muh freedom with its globalization.
This anime is not a deconstruction. It ain't realistic at all and this episode was pure asspull.
Either keep up with WUG threads or get the fuck out.
>Senran Kagura games announcements.
I'm so proud of my Minami, never losing her spirit.
Realism isn't binary.
>It ain't realistic
You're right, they're still not fucked by the producers.
>put on some mizugi
>are you virgin
>if you want the top get on my top
Yup, Idols in japan.
If they all get raped I pick this up.
Man the creepy old men and the otaku in the cafe cracked me up for aome reason. They're so letchy and pathetic, it really made the episode for me
I'm trying to find the youtube links. This thread has screenshots, though.
What the fuck?
Did they really get asked that question?
Leave it to Yamanakan for creating what would be the FIRST of its kind in modern late nite anime...
He's doing god's work.
It's an important trait to have in your idols.
WATCH THE MOVIE ALREADY!
Yeah but still that's kinda personal isn't it?
I went to Japan before and males rarely go to spas that females go too which explains why Matsuda's boss was there, getting her feet massaged and shit, so I find it an asspull how all these fat fuck old males were in the spa this episode.
Sorry but Japanese males go to bathhouses in the city and not a fucking spa.
It's like how males say they go to barber shops to get their hair cut while females say they go to a hair salon to get their hair cut.
So either the subs for this episode are bullshit or the writer for this bullshit was plain fucktarded.
Sorry but the term "spa" and a place that advertises as a "spa" has always been intended for a majority female cliente.
If this was real life, Wake Up Girls would be performing for mostly ladies instead and not fat fuck old men.
Also, the fact alcohol was served in such an establishment is breaking so many city codes the blood vessels in my head are bursting.
There is a big difference between an inn/hotel and a spa and the licenses each type of establishment is allowed to have.
Japan is pretty strict in its alochol licenses and enforcement.
The fact Yamankan is telling me some spa in the middle of the city is able to serve alcohol in the afternoon and also flagrantly employ minors as waitresses is just so much asspull I literally feel like I lost my buttocks watching this episode.
And don't even get me started on how a contract without any signature from Matsuda since he never saw the contract or knew about a contract beforehand can remain valid and how Matsuda and Wake Up Girls had every right to walk out of the spa any time they wanted and Sudo could not do jack shit about it because Sudo knows his contract is pure bullshit and invalid.
Fuck you Yamankan. You don't know how real life works, even real life in your own country.
Anyone who defends this episode is clearly deluded as Yamankan as well.
>pictures not working.
A little bit more than kinda. As an idol, you don't have much privacy. Sure, fans don't know everything about you but producers...
But the file is so big. I'm not sure it will fit.
Also, I find it funny how so many male adults have time to be at a spa in the middle of the day when Wake Up Girls is not even currently set in summer or the holidays.
What the fuck happened to their 9am to 5pm jobs?
They obviously have money to spend time at a spa but it is not even holidays season yet so how come they aren't at their jobs but at a spa in the middle of the day and there are so many of them?
It wouldn't be so surprising to see housewives at a spa in the middle of the day but for all these males to appear in this episode at a spa of all places calls for an impossible suspension of belief required from the viewer.
Like if you wanted this episode to have at least a shred of realism, have it set at a sports bar or beerhouse late at night when tired salarymen get off from work and want to drink some beer and shit not at a spa in the middle of the day.
At least, that way, there can be an excuse as to why so many adult males are able to be present at a venue in the middle of the day and clearly not working at all.
If Yamakan make this "realism" Yakuza kiil him?
Also exist documentary about the dark side of Idols?
Coming SOON to C86 in paperback
Tokyo Big Sight
Be There !!!
Well how else are they going to find out?
Yeah, it should have been on the application in the first place, but that's not Tange's style.
People also used to pour molten silver down the throats of heretics.
The entertainment industry is rough, but seems super hard mode in Japan.

Not really. I work at a betting shop and I get several people that stay there all day.
It's fucking anime dude. Just stop
>>I like eroge NTR
Pfft, please. Implying that it will end with anything but a perfect super happy ending with everything resolved perfectly. Sure, writers criticizing the idol industry is nothing new, but none of them have the balls to actually have a realistic ending. Hell, I would even settle for a bittersweet ending.
And it's hard to feel bad for these girls when they know (or at least should know) what being a gimmicky idol group is about. No one gives two shits about their songs or singing that's for sure.

Posts in this thread are the reason /a/ is being watched by the FBI.
What does that have to do with people's natural values?
I'm not saying they should let people fuck children, just that not even looking at them is ridiculous brainwash straight out from America.
Keep living in your delusions, basement dweller.
Even the average joe would know a ton of red flags are being set off when you have a 13 year old in a skimpy bikini serving alcohol.
looks like 2chan took note of this and are ready for more.
>implying they didnt fap to this
>implying they didnt like the thought of wrecking some 13 y/o girls cunt
I haven't watched this show but I'd give anything to be the girl on the far right
>Sendai Sendai Sendai
Hahaha. I can't believe Japs care this much about this stuff.
Also, the one before that had them cut up the girls' (school) swimsuits with scissors.
keep believing that the Japanese are anything more than a people of herd-mentality, and actually have the ability to think critically for themselves.
most of them would think that everything is a-ok since this is a legal establishment and all and these girls are professional whores.
Also, noone in the audience knew their real age and asian girls look young as fuck till thier mid 40s.
Sauce for documentray anon , pls.
Kaya should be 19 by the time of the second episode..Someone post their bios, its either born in 95 or 96.
That far right slut whos name I don't care about was the only one enjoying it, How could you enjoy that.
Glorious Miyuu body.
>laws in America
>not the most nepotistic and corrupt 1st world country there is
>entertainment industry not ruled by the liberals and Jews
>your beautiful theories not crushed by hard reality
Wake Up Girls is one of the stupidest idol group names I've heard in awhile. Also, the same face is starting to get to me, it's just getting creepy. Are people actually enjoying this in a non ironic way?
She's literally a child. A bit stupid and far to young.
This makes this shit even scarier.
Fuck you Lelouch, you're always being one obnoxious faggot, and notorious for hating small girls, but to take this shit out on Minami who is most probably just optimistic and being clearly awkward in the situation is a new low, even for you.
Not so much the second episode, but I am.
But I guess I'm not as cynical and bitter as the rest of /a/.
>far too young
I'm enjoying it, the second ep was tough but I'm really loving the show.
I count for five more episodes until every girl ends up in Soapland.
>tfw there are real idols voicing them
Except Yamakan is behind this. You never know what he's gonna do with a series. He will say one thing then do something else entirely.
It's really funny how there are retards actually believing that.
You probably also think USA is an amazing country respecting it's citizens and their freedom.
"I've sucked about fifty dicks."
technically she would still be a virgin if that's all she does
Minami is always optimistic about nearly everything. She was happy at first but even she was disappoint by the end of it all.
Japs fear nothing more than a loss of face. As most asians, actually.
Loss of face should not be mistaken with dishonouring something.
Face losing is fucking up and doing bad stuff only when noone looks, but if someone exposes your fuckups and crimes, you must cry bloody murder. You keep up your civilized facade at all costs.
Honour is when you do right and just even without anyone looking, when you do not have anything to hide behind your facade.
They hate it more that Yamakan showed something bad about a fictional version of Sendai than to do some serious soul-searching about the nature of the idol industry that they are fueling by being pandered.
Classical 'shoot the messenger'-reflex.
*fap fap fap fap*
Leave it to someone as big of a faggot as Lelouch to call her unironically a slut.
>Literally a child
She has breasts though.
I dunno, she really liked the posing.
>i'm not even murrican
Yoshino and Kaya became my favorites after this episode.
It's telling girls who want to be idols to wake up
But she didn't like the overall disrespect. There's nothing wrong with posing.
Something looks off about the pool
Yamakan just need to quit. He is a habitual failure.
>not hentai yet.jpg
Fixed. Raped Idols in 4 episodes at best, 2 at worst
Even posing, she was so pure I almost teared up.
How is it a failure if I enjoy it so much?
Waku Up, Girls! is a name that is representing the feminist revolutionary ideal behind this show.
Young girls emancipating themselves from industry/male-yakuza oppression and sexualization, empoering themselves and shake off the shackles of CIS SCUM sexual hegemony.
Wake Up, Girls! Wake Up, and smash the foul Patriarchy! You have nothing to lose aside of your shackles! This is the final struggle!
Definitely, the whole spa scene was absolutely tough to get through. It was bad seeing them all exploited but man, Minami's so oblivious that she did not see the sexual nature of the shit she was having to do at all.
It made me feel bad, man.
Go away, Jap.
You're almost saying this as if it wouldn't be the women who are privileged in this time and age.
She is just a slut that enjoys getting mens cocks hard.
I'm an Amerimuscle. I can't help it if everything he touches turns to shit. Soon he will have pixiv artists composing still frames that the VA's will talk over.
For a second i thought this was a Kisekae thread.
It made me angry as fuck
I hate white knighting, but at that scene, I wanted to murder some people.
so i went into this anime blind and dropped it halfway through episode 1 but what is a 'idol'? Is it just young girls that want to be singers but get raped or something? I have no idea why anyone would want to get raped, even in japan
I wanted to pick her up in a princess pose, and get her out of that rotten place.
She is a beatiful young girl, and I have nothing about her doing gravure, but those guys don't deserve her posing for them.
I like bullying and rape. But I wonder if this will make me feel uncomfortable like the pedophile father that zombie girl had.
If you are so out of idols i don't see a reason for you to watch this show.
>did not watch the 50 minute movie version on Crunchyroll
that's your loss, pal
looks like a junior-idol private pool (as seen in most junior-idol videos)
cannot into moon.
what is this.
some scary story?
>men taking pictures of the girls in their bikini
If any of them decides to leak these pics out, their idol career is royally fucked
Not really, as long as they don't get too close to guys.
Now that KISS would have fucked up Miyuu's career. I really don't understand why the fuck Matsuda didn't interfere at least at that point.
Of about 150 sovereign nations with a democratic system, Japan consistently ranks in the top 25 in transparency according to the corruption perception index, ahead of countries like US and France
It's like you don't think people would spend 48 seconds on google
It's "That pool"- specifically, a pool attached to the Hanazono Room. There's a Pixiv keyword for it: 例のプール . It's a pool used for all sorts of low-rent AV stuff.
Across the road is a kindergarten
Nope, background info. Nothing completely new, but a few interesting tidbits and a very small insight into how AVs are made.
For example...the main reason that pool always gets picked is, because it's in the middle of Tokyo and in a relatively inexpensive studio. Previously they would shot swimsuit videos at villas as far out as Shizuoka. It also has a massive amount of rooms as it was previously owned by some famous, rich person that unfortunately remains unnamed in the book.
Directors don't really like the pool, because it's too small to really swim and you have a limited amount of camera angles.
The Idol Industry is like very slow prostitution.
Ah, I now know where some of those younger junior idols got there.
Because he's a spineless piece of shit who should die.
Also, it's probably a serious biohazard site by now.
That wasn't a kindergarten, it's an all-girls middle school, I think.
I would need to check Google Maps to make sure, and I don't feel like doing that right now.
This looks like a high powered D&D stat roll.
>90% of all japanese males
No wonder their women are so quick on the gaijin cock
>wake up, girls.
>wake up to the realization that the idol industry is populated by desperate women of loose morals and dangerous men that exploit them.
Yamakan is not only saving the anime industry he's saving the idol industry. Is there anything this man can't save?
Their research methods are intransparent as fuck. I actually had to do a research paper about them and I was appalled of the lack of consistency and openess in their research criteria.
Also, Japanese statistics are not to be trusted. Never to be trusted at all.
Remember the claim of all their thousands of over-100 year old people? Yeah, guess what? They were dead since decades, but noone in their totally obsolete, paper-based bureaucracy ever recorded or gave a fuck about some old grannies living in a totally deserted village somewhere on an island.
And Japanese are also notorious liars, who are pathologically trying to save face for their country and collective when encountered with foreign scientists doing research and publications.
The entire Japanese political and bureaucratic class is one large nepotistic cesspool consisting of feudal plutocratic families that have ruled for centuries and pushed around positions to their incompetent, but loyal, offspring and retainers. It isnt even funny anymore.
I'd argue that Japan is even worse than China in that regard, as they have never experienced a society-bursting violent revolution that swept away the old ruling classes. They are literally the worst and most non-liberal of any 1st world countries in the world.
>it's an all-girls middle school
>Japanese middle school girls frequently prostitute themselves
I just checked, and the sign reads "Hanazono Youchien", but there may be a middle school somewhere else nearby, too.
This, he basically let everyone walkover him and does fucking nothing when the girl are being exploit.
Typical westerner wants the violent option. Or are you a filthy Chinese dog or korean mongrel.
The best part is that you get to discard the 13.
IIRC the married man in charge of hiring talent for AKB48 was busted for violating Japan's anti-child prostitution laws and his defense was that it's not cheating because he paid and none of the girls he paid for worked under him.
I never gave a fuck about this yamakan guy, but this show made me realize that he's doing god's work. Social justice and all.
I wish him luck. Swimming against the tide isnt something that will yield quick rewards, but the world will remember him for it.
Says america who witch hunts everyone who is attracted to not children, but even 14 year olds.
I really wish that he had been fired and made to walk out in shame, getting spat on by the girls. Fuck him.
Maybe he'll lend a hand to all the hikkikomori next. Unfortunately they aren't as photogenic and sympathetic as cute little idols, but I believe in Yamakan.
>They were dead since decades, but noone in their totally obsolete, paper-based bureaucracy ever recorded or gave a fuck about some old grannies living in a totally deserted village somewhere on an island.
Also their families kept their deaths under wraps so that they could keep collecting pension.
But Japan's government is a sham, a front for US/yakuza/zaibatsu.
I'm not even american.
Yes, Murrica a shit.
A big shit. But a different kind of shit compared to Japan.
One is literally the cancer killing the world, the other is literally the cancer killing themselves (and get mad when someone points that out for them, because SHAMEFUR DISPRAY).
Japan never had a revolution... they had RESTORATION (Meiji-era)
>Wake up, Hikkis
I don't think I could bear to watch it, it would hit painfully close to home.
They went wrong when they caved in to globalization.
Age of consent is not 13 anymore in a culture where cuteness and purity beats sexuality? Enjoy your lowering birthrates.
AOTS for me
For me too.
I hope we're getting a comfy episode now.
Serious question here: Am I the only one who feels bad for yamakan? A guy can only fail so much and be wished to fail by the masses before it's just too much. Did he really do anything wrong to deserve all this?
>inb4 PS3/PS4/Vita WUG game which is a IM@S ripoff where you control the useless spineless manager to help propel your rag tag group of WUG idols into stardom. Plus also the option romance one of the 7 WUG girls (or Prez) while trying to avoid getting caught in a scandal
Never understood this.
They still hate him for the Lucky Star Episode 1?
I guess that at this point, he's doing that on purpose by now, just to spite the fans.
Everything he's made before this has been one lengthy shitburger of wrong.
If it has a cruel twist and turns into a critical social commentary, it can become an instant classic.
>imagine playing the weak, spineless but good-hearted manager who is desperately trying to protect his girls from exploitation while the yakuza is breathing down his neck.
>imagine that he cannot evade the bad outcome of all girls being sexually exploited and pushed into hardcore/fetish AV, but only slow it down, telling white lies and cute stories, while crying internally, to the youngest and most naiive idols.
Something in the line of Schindler's List, Jacob the Liar and John Rabe with Idols.
>Wake up, Hikkis
What is...NHK ni Youkoso?
would love Yamanakan to remake Welcome to the NHK... following the manga closely, most likely will end up as home video OVA and can't have hard drugs portrayed even on late nite Japanese TV)
They hate him because he shit-talked against moepigs while making Fractale.
I would feel bad for him if he weren't so arrogant, but then again his arrogance is why he can make WuG. WuG seems to be doing okay, anyway, and maybe it'll smack some pigs to their senses if he goes all-in on making them feel miserable for supporting the exploitation of young girls.
Who will stand up for the exploitation of otaku?
Japan is not into that anymore... post WW2 situation under General McArthur spawned Keiretsu
That would be magnificent, and make me want to kill myself.
It'd be the Stanley Parable of idol games.
A VN like this pretty much writes itself.
The birthrate death spiral is more that it's borderline impossible to actually maintain a family while working yourself to death as Japanese corporations demand and women are flat out made to choose between having children or a career. Maternity leave and child care are a joke, the laws are on the books but utterly unenforced.
Yeah, Japan is so shit that it's doing better than US and EU now. Such a horrible country with the highest average lifespan on the planet, lowest crime amongst industrialized countries and healthcare that actually works.
Truly, I'd rather live in Somalia.
>Schindler's List with Idols
Oy Vey! Oy Gevalt!
Never claimed that Japan is a shithole. They are a really advanced developed country. But their society is shit-tier and doesnt really belong in the 21st century.
>If it has a cruel twist and turns into a critical social commentary
Squealer: WE ARE HUMAN!
The crime rate is pretty questionable because of massive underreporting and a police force that's still using 19th century methods.
Japan has major, MAJOR problems, but they're completely different problems from what most other countries are facing. It's kinda interesting, they're basically showing all the problems of a first world country without immigration, effective egalitarianism and unions.
>doesnt really belong in the 21st century
So what should we do about them mister know it all?
Crime in Japan is insanely low. Average western city is a warzone in comparison.
It's like what Scandinavia used to be before mudslimes happened.
Well, she is the best.
How far can Yamakan take the suffering before it starts to feel forced?
Why don't the girls quit?
This would actually be a plot I can imagine for a takotsuboya doujin.
One more chapter.
Didn't you hear? Everything is forced nowadays1
Because they have nothing better to do.
So, what's stopping the girls from going "fuck it" and just leaving?
They are not desperate for the money and they are not cock loving sluts.
The romanticized idea of being an idol, and the possibility of making it big one day.
Yeah? Try living in Hungary.
They really should quit.
Imagine, you as manager-san are fresh from college and take on a job at a relatively new agency. You'll be managing them as they start down their new paths towards stardom and eternal glory. At least that's what the head of the agency says. She leaves pretty quickly though for reasons that escape you and you're left alone in the unkind world of Japanese entertainment. You and the few girls who have entrusted their livelihood into your care. You, a fresh-faced, bright-eyed manager who must, no, who wants to see those young proteges of yours reach the very stars themselves.
But, the entertainment industry isn't kind to those new to its workings. Unsavory people run it, manage it, and keep the wheels of the entertainment industry eternally running. To do well on their turf you have to play by their rules.
Just how far will you go to help your idols reach success? Is success even all its cracked up to be? Will you willingly give up the values you held dear to your heart to help the girls down the path of idoldom? Or will it happen so slowly, so insidiously, that you don't even see the innocence stripped away before your very eyes?
The girls are just as unsavory as the rest.
>Not from the US
>Blames problems on a lack of immigration
You're a europoor, aren't you? Who said you get to decide what is 21st century and what is not? Go on, list some criteria.
Insert either some typical tropes of blackmail, debts etc.
Or, what I'd suggest:
Or going down the slippery slope and do questionable stuff, they are becoming social outcasts who can only live in that world from then on.
Society will shun them, and every other employer, be it the idol industry or even for mundane jobs, will know what they are and what they did, as rumours and gossip spread fast and destroying their private lives.
In the end, they are completely kaputt and can only exist within the confines of this exploitative industry, with no hope to escape this, aside of rising in the ranks and one day luring other naiive young girls into the trap.
Hope dies last.
Actually the poverty rate in Japan is 16% and climbing by 1.5% per year. A large portion of their population is underpaid, overworked & overstressed. Issues like the low birth rate and erectile dysfunction are closely tied to how overworked & underpaid the average salaryman earns. In fact age discrimination & job security are other points of interest Japan has failed to address. So no, Japan is far from a "utopia". Just because a bunch of baby boomers, whom have already earned enough to retire refuse to die does not mean Japan is doing better than the rest of the world.
A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
wtf are you talking about
Japan IS the embodiment of the XXI century.
Tip: birth statistics would look the same in every western country if not for immigrants.
Ask yourself what's better, lower population (on an island that's already overpopulated) vs shitskin ghettos in every city and crime +300%.
>Truly, I'd rather live in Somalia.
Soon as enough Somalians start moving to Japan. It will become Somalia. Seriously no matter if Europe, Asia, South America, North America or Africa it'self. Somalians cause the most shit out of any group. And turn cities into Detroit over night. Trust me if 1000 Somalians movie to a Japanese City will become a mini detroit. Not even Japan is safe from this if they their guard down.
>Crime in Japan is insanely low.
Only because the police generally turn the other way, with regards to organized crime and the general population lives in a perpetual state of fear.
I'd play the fuck out of it.
Also, I suggest to still implement a 'good end' which is very fucking hard to reach, even with everything objectively done right.
Just so that people will still play it.
Normal end, is that all end up in Soapland and the manager becomes 'one of them', who gave up all his ideals, killed his emotions, and begins to play the game as his peers and superiors wants him to.
>So, what's stopping the girls from going "fuck it" and just leaving?
The Japanese concept of "gaman"
>Gaman (我慢) is a Japanese term of Zen Buddhist origin which means "enduring the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity". The term is generally translated as "perseverance", "patience", tolerance, or "self-denial". A related term, gamanzuyoi (我慢強い gaman-tsuyoi?), a compound with tsuyoi (strong), means "suffering the unbearable" or having a high capacity for a kind of stoic endurance.
Gaman is variously described as a "law," a "virtue," an "ethos," a "trait," etc. It means to do one's best in distressed times and to maintain self-control and discipline.
Gaman is a teaching of Zen Buddhism.
>. Trust me if 1000 Somalians movie to a Japanese City will become a mini detroit.
This is true. But i doubt Japan will ever let that happen. Hell Somalis cause shit in Muslims neighborhood where they are hostel to anyone not muslim. Frenchfag here. Somalians are some of the worst people i ran into. And i am a self hating frenchmen.
Yeah, no. It's obvious you were never there. You feel safe everywhere at any hour.
Most "organized crime" in Japan is harmless Yakuza running Pachinko parlors and soaplands.
Implying he is wrong about what happens if you let Somalians,.
Gaman has been attributed to the Japanese-Americans and others held in United States' internment camps during World War II and to those affected by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in northern Japan. In the internment camps, Gaman was misperceived as introverted behavior or as a lack of assertiveness or initiative rather than as a demonstration of strength in the face of difficulty or suffering.
After the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, the resilience, civility, lack of looting and ability of the Japanese to help each other was widely attributed to the gaman spirit. The 50–70 workers that remained at the damaged and radiation-emitting Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant despite the severe danger demonstrated what was regarded as gaman as well.
Gaman is also used in psychoanalytic studies and to describe the attitudes of the Japanese. It is often taught to youth and largely used by older Japanese generations. Showing gaman is seen as a sign of maturity and strength. Keeping your private affairs, problems and complaints silent demonstrates strength and politeness as others have seemingly larger problems as well. If a person with gaman were to receive help from someone else, they would be compliant; not asking for any additional help and voicing no concerns.
>So basically, if you wanna become an Idol and realize the dream, you gonna have to GAMAN up.
It already feels that way after episode 2. If Yamakan wanted to make a show tackling realistic issues, he shouldn't have made every character NTR doujin-level retarded.
They went fuck it the moment a drunk fucker tried to kiss one of them.
I guess that means they would spread their legs and take 30 dicks in succession while eating cum because of gaman right?
Real names, surnames were changed.
Though they all work for a newly-opened company called Green Leaves.
Perhaps include subroutes for all the different girls, and over time if the player fucks up, we see the player's favorite character get torn apart by the industry in addition to the others; a magnifying glass focusing on a particular part of the piece, if you will.
In any case, we do need those good ends, as difficult as they may be to reach. Something to make the player want to keep going back at least. Lord knows I can't touch the Stanley Parable again, especially after the button route.
>It already feels that way after episode 2
You stupid fuck, I was obviously referring difficulty one has proving their innocence and how easily one can be arrested over the simplest shit. And organized crime is still just that. strawmanning faggot.
I'm not implying that at all. My cousin is a bus driver in a city full of them.
I usually have a high tolerance for melodrama too. But when you have to make characters inconceivably dense to create drama, especially in a show that otherwise tries maintain some semblance of realism, it just comes across as silly.
Sounds like the VNs on vndb tagged with "Unavoidable Heroine Rape" and other shit like that that I'm too much of a pussy to play.
Would there at least be a good end? ;-;
The good end would have to be more of a bittersweet end, of course, with them just going "fuck it" and crushing their own dreams.
>They went fuck it the moment a drunk fucker tried to kiss one of them.
>I guess that means they would spread their legs and take 30 dicks in succession while eating cum because of gaman right?
To be accurate, one of the girls (dammit... i forget their names... but she's the Maid Cafe worker) basically dropped her GAMAN, while i'm sure the other six still had GAMAN. WuG girls can't continue to perform their services since they're incomplete ("if one falls, the rest falls" type of mentality seen on Asians)
Is it wrong that my dick is getting so hard after reading that?
Meido-chan is Miyuu.
Also posting the Wug guide.
The loss of innocence is both fascinating, and horrifying.
The problem is that Yamakan is still pandering to some degree. If he really wanted to cause a shitstorm, he needs to make an anime where all the idols know the score from the start. Like, each of them has been involved in enjokosai since age 12, and get sweet new handbags from their "papas" monthly, and make fun of the idol fans like mad when-ever the cameras are off.
Basically, make everyone from the top to the bottom of the industry a piece of shit. That's how you blow the roof off.
well looks like Miyuu must have slept through some of GAMAN lessons.
>Gaman is also used in psychoanalytic studies and to describe the attitudes of the Japanese. It is often taught to youth and largely used by older Japanese generations. Showing gaman is seen as a sign of maturity and strength.
When it's a porn manga where you know the chick is just a set of holes existing to get fucked you just don't care.
But here after getting to know them watching this shit is just disturbing.
I somewhat agree, but it doesn't detract from my enjoyment. There are enough qualities to the show, and my suspension of disbelief can easily accommodate Yamakan's heavy-handed plot.
throw away your morals anon, it'll be much easier
Yamakan did a pretty damn good job of making the viewer become attached to the characters. I was pretty surprised the spa scene fucked with me as much as it did.
Usually it takes me a whole series before I start feeling that much for the characters in a show.
Please don't post subjective taste as "WuG guide".
And then, Yamakan is kill.
Woooo let's all shoot the messenger eh? I didn't make it, I'm just posting it.
Nothing's stopping you from releasing a "correct" WUG guide.
I feel like /a/ is the audience. Doujin when?
Please don't fight minna.
It'll be awesome, just like the plot of the second Patlabor movie.Except instead of giant robots it will be rampaging otaku.
>/a/ being the audience.
Sounds about right.
Must be the megacity life...
Tokyo metro has too many people
Methinks here should be a program to incentivize moving out of Tokyo and populate places to create/revitalize industry and where one can start a normal family.
Yeah, I feel you. Despite my complaints, I still enjoy the show enough. And regardless of how it was set up, the whole spa scene was pretty disturbing nonetheless. I like what Yamakan is trying to do. It's just it can be difficult empathize as much with the characters (especially the MC) when they are cartoonishly retarded in what's supposed to be a serious show.
If Yamakan want make a reflection about this...
Good for her, too. There's enduring the unbearable for the sake of something grander than yourself, and then there's enduring the unbearable so that other people take advantage out of you. They should start differentiating between those two.
You really have taken a liking to that new phrase you've just heard, haven't you?
Sorry, but that's incorrect, and that guide is incorrect too.
That's now obsolete.
And why is Yoshino so low? She's actually okay.
Being her only fan is suffering.
I felt uncomfortable for the whole episode and had to pause more than 5 times. Can't even imagine how the girls must have felt.
>Open a Yamakan thread
Man, it took me 1.5 hours to get through just that part. It was tough
Everyone had high hopes for Fractale too when it was only a couple of episodes in. I wouldn't get your hopes up for this show just yet.
You guys are fucking pussies. Sit back and enjoy the ride. It was interesting. Didn't you feel relieved after that Sudo fag got his shit kicked in? Justice.
>Defending the suicide capital of the world
Embrace your inner /pol/, /a/.
thought that was south korea
I was, but still, that spa part was awful on the heart.
He already wrote it. Three times.
>Firsts episode with fanservice giving that fells.
>Late episodes about girls dramas and suffering.
I want in this shown, but the ending is that muh friendship power to resolve the drama.
Also, exist documentary, manga or anything about the dark side of Idols?
It's not the country's fault if its citizens just happen to want to kill themselves. In fact they should be applauded for giving them the freedom to do so.
I wonder what it would be like if The Idolmaster was like this? Imagine the tears that would be shed.
Fractale was obviously crap after the first episode.
>helping waifus come to terms with their true nature
Since when are we talking about Greenland?
I thought it showed an interesting premise and was interested to see where it would go with it, for at least the first couple of eps. Discussion around the time seemed to agree, at least from what I saw. I mean of course some people thought it was crap from the first five minutes as with any show, but it didn't really seem to be the consensus at first.
She's one of the best. Mark my words, /a/ will finally realize this once she gets a decent amount of focus.
Now imagine this scene by Urobutcher...
Wouldn't work. If anyone pulls shit, either the Minase Group, Yukiho's clan, the Lunarians, a raging horde of angry animals... or Makoto will put a stop to it.
>goro av soon
>title Go to Bed, Girls
Gaman also refers to holding out on cumming during sex. Precum is called "Gaman Juice".
holy cow, why is it so high?
Oh sweet fucking jesus no
People were lured there by false advertising.
>ice, ice everywhere
>But it said greenland!
That never stopped Urobuchi. He'll just Ideon the world.
Huh. Is this worth watching, or should I wait another couple of episodes to make sure it doesn't go kotoura-san on us?
you know your dick wants it
Because we're talking about percentages, obviously. Consider the relative populations of Greenland and Japan.
This is why i have faith in this anime. Yamakan has managed to make me give a fuck about the girls, he's doing God's work
Let us patiently wait for that day.
But if he did that I'd have to poop in his mouth. It's not my fault, it's an involuntary reaction.
This is an effective deterrent.
> - dislikes Citizen Kane
Watch the movie, it's great and works well enough as a stand alone, then decide if you want more or not.
Is there SUFFERING in the movie? I love SUFFERING but hate idolshit. It's like the most annoying parts of Japanese culture concentrated.
Japs' taste is trult pure shit
Reminds me of this. And boy does she get fucked hard.
You'll probably like it.
>USA - 36,909
>Japan - 32,845
Japan has more population density than the US though
There's something seriously wrong with that picture.
Will check out, thanks.
So wait I thought this was a slice of life thing, is it about the mistreatment of idols in the entertainment industry?
Because that's actually interesting.
>Y-yeah, I was actually talking about percentages...
That title is genius. Make it happen.
No. It has one short arc about that then it's resolved by a retarded resolution and it's over.
Shut up weeaboo faggot.
>It features the actual voice actress of each idol.
>Goro is a young and bright new producer of idols, but the idols he has met are a bit strange. What's more, they don't take "no" for an answer?
>What will become of the pure and innocent Goro?
It's about a group of girls trying to hit big as idols despite the harsh environment that is the entertainment industry or the fact that they're ordinary girls that don't even get along so well instead of beacons of love and perfection.
>mfw this person probably hasn't ever been to japan in his lifetime
I feel more threatened walking around the suburbs here at night because of all the drugged up white trash that got laid off since their jobs moved to China than I was walking around Tokyo at 3AM.
Stay shit, NA
>this is how the real idol industry is!
>exaggerate everything to fool/pander people who want an edgy show
goro pls stop
How did Minami end up so low in this one?
>doesn't understand the concept of indecency
>would play along with Goro if she ever found herself alone with him
>just like she was whoring herself out on that stage for everyone to see
She's so moe.
but prostitution is all but legal there with very little consequence to the seller
I think her easy manipulation ads to the moe points as now the otaku can protect her from the evil pigmen that would exploit her
Again, I'm more than ok with this. You have fine tastes, guidebro.
I think she's just not as interesting as the others as a character. She's treated more like the group's mascot. Hopefully that will change eventually, I'd like her to be shown in a more relatable light.
no, we have to go deeper
Where does the whole Airi being apart of the Christians thing come from?
Well, the old fucks DID take pictures of them right? That shit is going to bite them in the ass in the later episodes no doubt.
It's completely legal as soaplands.
See pics related. It's a joke. haha
Not for gaijin ;_;
>Stand up (sexually)
>The maid cafe (deep meaning)
>My semen is also warm
Tange will also end their lives if that happens.
Fuck you, she's an optimist and a child, but not an exhibitionist. This is getting old, just look at her sad face later on.
I also don't agree.
We hardly got to see any character focus in the series so far to have an established opinion of that.
And so far she was the one who got the most awesome gimmicks, memorable moments and also the best performance with an awesome voice.
But it is. Tons of them have 0 problems with gaijins.
Yoshino is so awesome. She had no minuses.
I don't think Tenge is completely reliable yet.
So, what, is this an idol show that attempts to toss away the veil that idol life is all roses? Like a more serious version of O/A?
this is what creates ntr gold
Hardly. More like a momentary impression.
>most awesome gimmicks, memorable moments
Like a mascot. Or a token imouto. Or comic relief. Maybe her childishness is too idealized for my taste, I'd like if we had more insight on her beyond that. Not that I don't like her or anything.
>and also the best performance with an awesome voice.
I'll give you that.
>Matsuda is struck by a door and becomes concussed
You're almost saying it as if we got more insight of the other girls, save it for Airi/Mayu for the first arc and Miyuu this time around.
We can't really tell more of the others besides their "archeotype", for example Kaya didn't do anything that would make her standing lower or higher besides a few token lines.
If you're gonna say what you did about Minami, consider the other girls too. What did Kaya do then? Having her ass groped?
>Man, it took me 1.5 hours to get through just that part. It was tough
>I felt uncomfortable for the whole episode and had to pause more than 5 times. Can't even imagine how the girls must have felt.
u paused and the other guy took 2 hours to complete a 20 minute episode you can unload the pack that was building down there, and you can't help it.
Sticks and stones can break your bones so always pay your student loans.
I'm liking this. Please keep up the hard work.
I liked Kaya until she commented on Citizen Kane. She didn't criticize it as the shitsubs would make you believe. What she said would rather translate to "Whoa, this is too deep for me, I don't think I'd be able to deal with it." Most like what the average joe would comment on painting exhibitions.
America also being fucked up does not negate Japan's fucked up state.
This isn't Facebook, learn to type.
So what's this show about
Just a typo retard.
Can't you read? It's about a group of wake up girls.
It's a twenty minute montage each episode of girls being woken up.
Miyuu brights my week by just being her charming self.
It's about an underground doctor who is in charge of many celebrities' affairs. Each episode presents the life of a different woman working on a different part of the industry. Drugs are a recurring theme. Sleeping pills, antidepressants, even hard drugs. The Doc has to take care of them all, and often get them ready to do their job when they're in no condition to. Hence "Wake up, Girls!"
> exist documentary, manga or anything about the dark side of Idols?
Well, there's this news report from the Japanese equivalent of FOX NEWS
This fucking narrator-dude is everywhere, I swear.
In all objective measures measurable... America(ns) is simply in more fucked up state and Japan(ese)
>quantifying "fucked up"
>admitting you're a lolicon in public
>moreso during a TV interview
I refuse to believe these faggots weren't paid to do it.
It's measured in FRTs.
>that entire video
I doubt the hardships and suffering will last very long, but it could happen.
fuck this trainwreck country (inaka) group-idol
i need to erase episode 2 from my memory and
＜－－－ watch this idol-diva instead
Watching it now.
This guy is a huge shit.
>I doubt the hardships and suffering will last very long
You're in for a surprise, Anon.
He probably grew up watching shitty harem shows erry day.
Are you retarded? This isn't a trainwreck.
Why retards are misusing this word lately?
What the fuck, Japan... even the visiting gaijin are disgusted.
Also, the producer of that clearly likes the Fifth Element soundtrack.
Are you ready for I-1 Club in Sendai?
It's going to be another cringe-worthy episode that's for sure. Friday can't come sooner enough.
It be nice if we got some more character development regarding the aftermath of episode 2. Its still pretty sameface and they don't mention their names very often.
You mean the feminized, politically correct and multiracial loving gaijin? What a loss to Japanese society.
Hopefully they get a better song than suki dayo suki de suki suki
>multiracial loving gaijin
But the gaijin don't racially love each other, what are you smoking?
don't you know Sendai is like the equivalent of "Detroit" in Japanese standards.
So yes, objectively, Sendai is a trainwreck post 3-11 disaster; the company that Tange runs is a trainwreck (BMF all that funds like a big meech) and the girls are barely hanging on.
Yoshino = perfection
Yoshino's character development will be the responsibilities of being the leader of the group.
Mayu's will be about her mom.
Airi's about he lack of confidence
Nanami's about her parents not being there for her because of work.
Kaya's about being poor.
Miyuu's will be about a stalker fan.
Minami will just keep eating happily and without a worry in the world.
>Not liking suki dayo suki de suki suki
Torrent of "We'll Show You Everything" when?
Actually, the song is either called Shirt and Blouse or Little Challenger.
I don't get it, why did they take them to that place?
How is a spa an adequate place to sing for god sake, this is just forced drama.

However, you can help him. Spread this list!
They were only there to raise funds, of course being a bunch of delusional teenagers they probably were under the impression that all they were doing to do was sing, but the spa owner only wanted them as cheap waitresses to entertain the guests.
>Implying you wouldn't have the same dirty thoughts
"warm welcoming fans" that Miyu talk about don't exist. The people in the maid cafe think the same about them, they're just too beta/not drunk enough to act on it.
Did anyone else feel guilty watching that scene or was it just me?
I don't get all the hate directed at Matsuda, the poor fuck was doing all he could It's not like he was in the position to just tell everybody to fuck off.`
We hate Matsuda because he's Yamakan's self insert.
He didn't read the contract. The contract spelled out beforehand what the girls were expected to do. Any reasonable manager would have read the contract and warned the girls of what was expected beforehand, so that they could decide whether they wanted to go down that path or not. So it's all his fault, really.
>the poor fuck was doing all he could
He wasn't. That's why.
You have a fuckton of debts, no money, no experience, no contacts, no nothing but a bunch of girls with unrealistic expectations, what do you do in his situation?
You are too much of a faggot to simply tell them to fuck off and stop being delusional, and the only person you know has more experience than you, how would do you handle the situation?
Seriously though, what's with the Nyaruko songs? What does Yamakan have to do with Nyaruko/Kana Asumi/Xebec?
But he actually told them and they actually agreed (even if somewhat reluctantly) to everything in the contract, they all jumped into the idea that this was somehow necessary.
He is just the typical eleven bowing down, when Sudo lectured him about not knowing shit about how things worked he realized he was no one to complain.
I can't really blame the poor bastard, he really can't do much.
He told them once they were there, not before. If the contract wasn't presented to him before they showed up at the spa, he should have asked for it.
>what do you do in his situation?
Read the contract.
Following up, if it were just him, I could forgive a lackadaisical attitude about responsibilities and consequences. But he has seven teenagers who are looking to him for guidance and leadership. He simply let them down.
What difference does it make? The supposed contract wasn't even such, it was more like a list of activities if anything, it wasn't even supposed to be a formal agreement, Matsuda was confident in Sudo's experience and wether he read it before or not wouldn't make any difference.
I don't give a single fuck if this shit happens to real flesh and blood 3D girls. Not a single fuck.
If this anime is a call to action, it has failed to call on me. I won't watch it because I don't want to watch cute 2D girls be exploited.
Fuck off feminazi
>What difference does it make?
It would have made a difference to the girls if they knew what the list was before they showed up. Once you show up and do one show, the pressure to complete the task at hand becomes considerably stronger, especially to the Japanese psyche.
>Matsuda was confident in Sudo's experience
That's another strike against Matsuda's character right there.
It's not necessarily a realistic portrayal that Yamakan is going for. I mean, it is what he's trying to portray with it, but it's not the purpose behind the show. He's just trying to break the otaku bubble and make you sympathise with these characters and feel bad for sexualising them and then enlighten otaku to their own hypocrisy. Whether or not he succeeds in doing that is a different matter entirely, but it's definitely what he's trying to pull off.
You think they wouldn't have agreed if they knew about the photo shoot and the "games" beforehand? I think it was made pretty clear during the chitchat they had in the changing rooms that the were buying the idea of whoring themselves a little bit to test their resolve.
>That's another strike against Matsuda's character right there.
What does the poor bastard could possibly do, he really isn't in the position to complain.
>Moe pigs! This is a real idol anime

Japan is butthurt because truth came to the light.
It's something new from a society that is very secretive and likes to hide their wickedness under the rug and suppress individualism.
He really is just fucking with the people from Sendai making them look like a bunch of ignorant countryside folks.
>Respecting women and not getting fired for sekuhara
How exactly does an America bikini change anything?
Is that the equivalent to calling her a slut?
How long before this goes the way of Ryuko bikini pic?
It already got a nude edit and a slutty nude edit, that's all she's good for so it won't go the same way.
Sendai Tourism Board: Please save us Yamakan! Nobody visit us because Fukushima turn us into nuclear wasteland! Please make good, flattering anime of us so people come!
Yamakan: My privilege! I will save you like I save anime!
And Wake Up Girls was born.
Americans are sluts. My chinese porn comics told me so.
I don't see why everybody is losing their shit over all this "abuse" thing, these girls are literally whores.
First they show off their panties in a random show for no real reason, then they casually agree to dance in swimsuits in some cheap spa? Seriously, I can only assume.
Wait, where's this from?
I need that nude edit.
Without the weird lines over it.
Audition poster from 2012.
>This dream (anime) will raise Japan's spirits
Also, the very fact that the voice actresses share the same name (reading only, the kanji being different) as the characters makes this all the more self-conflicted. He's exploiting while exposing exploitation at the same time. And Yamakan being Yamakan, I'm not sure he even realizes what the show is implying.
Some faggot anon's twitter.
I just want to protect them all.
Please no more sad episodes Yamakan.
>Because this dream (anime) will probably raise Japan's spirits
He'd made the claim deniable.
fug the last one
kill the rest
The suffering hasn't even started. What are you going to do when oneor multiple[/spoiler:lit] oft the girls gets knocked up by a TV producer who then forces them to abort. The tears will nuture me for weeks.
Yamakan lurks here, do not give him ideas like that.
It's to late you can't stop the happening
Could anybody mediafire all of the nude edits?
Imagine if Wug was:
Written by: Urobuchi
Directed by: Anno
Produced by: Shaft
The depth and suffering would create a blackhole
Why would an animation studio be in charge of production?
I want to feed Minami.
Why is she so attractive with an apron?
Welp made a mistake there. Animated by Shaft.
I'm watching the movie now and I can't differentiate between any of these characters.
Such cute, innocent and lovely girls. It would be a shame if... some fat bald men... corrupted them... tainted them...
Is Yamakan Citizen Kane?
I'd stuff her face with love.
I would have sexual intercourse with her.
might be missing some, it's what I've grabbed from 2chan
>Sendai will win if they sue
On what grounds?
That Yamakan is damaging the local tourist industry?
I'd stuff her throat with my cock until she puked, then keep going.
This isn't a metaphor
Class action defamation lawsuit. I think.. because there is no other reason. Most anime mention names of cities and places, sometimes there are conflicts, gangs and destruction shown. Like that all cities in Japan would start suing.
Who's the music engineer for this show? Who writes the songs?
I think that he does, somewhat. After the Touhoku earthquake, he burbled something about anime needing to commit to reality, so his way of dealing with that is to break the fourth wall with the actresses, which I guess helps to highlight the lack of separation between director and audience, something that he's also moaned about in the past. I doubt that he sees himself as innocent in this, although his ego may just work that way, too.
I think Yamakan is trying to spite the GuP production committee at the same time.
Think about it, both animes had somewhat similar premises and an MC that was for some reason an outcast.
One of the dudes that does some of the songs from iM@S I'm pretty sure. The OP definitely sounds like something from iM@S at least, rather than something from Love Live for exmaple
It ain't an Idol Show that over-idealises Idol life to the point of saccharine.
It portrays the girls genuinely liking their jobs while not shying away from criticism.
Overall, it's done a good job balancing both idealism and cynicism.
But in spite of the criticism, it is still very much an Idol show. I've seen Im@s and I can say that WUG's plot feels like it's been ripped from A-1's Idolmaster.
Well Mizushima is Yamakan's good friend
That sounds kind of far-fetched? Or were you being sarcastic?
I'll pick it up then. Music is the deciding factor for idol shit. Just one guy though?
WUG is the Citizen Kane of anime
don't worry, it's good stuff.
If you are watching idolshit for the music then you missed the point
What do you expect him to watch it for then? The moe?
Didn't know that.
GuP was made to promote Ooarai.
The music is my favorite aspect of the iM@S franchise.
It actually has more than one song though.
Not getting the controversy with this show. Pretty much every entertainment indistry is exploitative in certain ways as humans tends to be exploitative creatures. Secondly, it is kind of silly to mock idols as a genre when the premise is the fantasy to begin with. The story is likely to show the girls pulling through despite the hurdles. Not to mention idol genres being deconstructed happens in almost all idol anime especially this past decade. Nothing really new here.
>"Detroit" in Japanese standards.
Wheres the fucking robocop?
You're right that most entertainment industries are exploitative. But when they're looking at sexual exploitaion of tenage girls it's a little different. I'll admit it's only episode 2, but so far WUG is a prety far cry from Love Live or AKB.
>Attempted assassination of Mamoru Oshii (failed)
How was this?
>idol genres being deconstructed happens in almost all idol anime especially this past decade
I'm not sure where to start pointing out everything that's wrong with this post but that sentence certainly is a particularly stupid one.
Teen exploitation happens in basically all entertainment industries though. Fashion, photography, music, and pretty much anything can be exploitative. Hollywood and TV is an obvious one. ButIit doesn't mean all those industries are broken. The idol scene can be Idolmaster levels of squeaky clean depending on the producer. I am not sure how the idol scene is any special. Pretty much any industry out there has its share of scumbags. As for the yakuza talk, I think they are more involved in stuff like adult video market. Anything as publicly scrutinized and gossiped about like the idol scene isn't a good landing pad for organized crime. They backed out of the MMA scene because of that.
I can't wait for WUG to have fan meets like handshake events and such.
Will WUG go full perfect blue?
I can only hope so.
It's an exaggeration, but Oshii attacked the modern anime industry in an interview and Yamakan called him a hack over twitter in so many words.
As saccharine as a lot of idol shows are, they are never free of the negative aspects of them. They always work that into the backstory in varying degrees. There are rarely any idol anime that portrays idolhood as flawless. Unless we're speaking idols having a limited role in a story or they are some kind of a superheroine story (AKB). I can understand WUG going a bit more cringey but its premise is hardly unique. Chances are it won't ever go the Perfect Blue route.
WUG is the Evangeline of idol shows
Why the fuck is there still no lewd art on pixiv
Urobucther making this?
The idol industry in Japan is legitimately quite bad, worse than any of those others. The main reason for this is because of the demographic. Idol otaku are a lot worse than anime otaku when it comes to things like purity and celebrity obsession. They have to maintain a very pure image and they have weird ass events like handshaking events (which otaku are known to ejaculate on their hands before going to). It can be very stressful. That being said, I have no sympathy for the girls and I'm not saying it needs to be radically reformed. They know what they're getting into, they can quit at any time and the pay is very, very good if you can get large enough where image becomes a serious thing to manage.
Sendai on the line, no chance. Plenty of cringe at the side I bet.
>I have no sympathy for the girls
I have zero knowledge on the subject, but I'm assuming their parents put them up to it.
>which otaku are known to ejaculate on their hands before going to
I was eating.
Not really. This isn't America where every mother wants their daughter to become a star so she makes her go to beauty contests at 3 years old.
>which otaku are known to ejaculate on their hands before going to
How does the idols know its cum?
>I have no sympathy for the girls and I'm not saying it needs to be radically reformed. They know what they're getting into
Some famous idols have been as young as eleven years old. Do you really think an eleven-year old or even a thirteen-year old knows what they're getting into?
They don't, they just get off knowing that their cum touched their waifu.
Not entirely true. Not all idols have handshake events for one. Idols have its share of psycho fandom but many idols are considered family friendly with a decently varied fanbase. Much like how people assume anime fandom is entirely psychotic otaku. That's not really true either. But yeah the girls usually can use the foresight or luck to join a credible and professional agency. I don't deny young girls may go through the creep factor though some male celeb are being targeted by fujoshi.
When getting a handful of slime, always assume the worst.
I think AKB49 had a good insight into the stressful part of being an idol singer.
Eleven year olds generally know what sex appeal and sex is. Especially girls who get puberty several years before boys. Lot of eleven year old boys may have less of a clue because their puberty period comes way later.
Why is the producer in idol anime always such a bro?
>Eleven year olds generally know what sex appeal and sex is
I can confirm this firsthand.
11 year olds don't give very good blowjobs
Are you retarded?
Maybe. We'll have to wait and see. At the moment he's pretty spineless and has been of very little use thus far
None of those things make the shows a "deconstruction" of the supposed idol "genres". The basic premise is in no way fantasy, Japanese idols really exist in a similar basic capacity to how they are portrayed.
>my little sweetheart's gonna be a star!!~
>I get all my infos about Japan from Sankaku Complex
Don't blame idols for it, retard, blame the shitty source of misinformation you have to rely on to make these retarded posts.
Are all those guys getting reach-arounds?
What's worth mentioning is that we almost never hear of suicidal or destroyed idols in real life. Even those who have been abused a bit usually pick themselves up and come out relatively unscathed or even have continuous careers. Despite how shady the idol business can be, you get way more total breakdowns from other types of musical/celeb careers. Japanese rock and pop scene can resemble western ones with all the total meltdowns and suicides. For some reason, idols never get there. Might be because most idols steel themselves up for it and most agencies don't get more risky than a bikini shoot or an ill advised meet and greet. Most idols actually get by decently well being dancing, singing cheergirls they are meant to be.
Don't remind me of that shit show called Dance Moms. If you have to ask why, I work in broadcasting and shit like that gets shown all the time.
Will the Wake Up Girls ever make it big?
I meant the facade of idols is fantasy, not their entire premise is. Even sugary sweet shows like Super Sonico showed exploitation. I just am not sure what deconstruction really means in regard to idols because most idol based anime always show it is a facade.
Airi > Miyuu > Minami > Kaya > Mayu > Yoshino >>>>>>> Nanami
I really hope Airi and Mayu turn out to be lesbians. They're so cute together.
Deconstruction doesn't mean shit in regards to anime. The only people who use it seriously are retards like yourself who have no idea what it means but use it anyway to sound smart.
The point is not the profession but the fact that asian parents tend to force their children into a career they see fit for them.
I hope so, but first there will be suffering.
>Can't even imagine how the girls must have felt.
Nanami is probably scarred for life.
I never used it. Some other anon did. I don't like the deconstruction wording either.
Don't most girls decide to get into modeling or even into softcore/nude modeling by themselves? That dynamic isn't exactly rare in western nations either. It's easy money. Not to mention the used panties market is there because the girls use it for easy yen.
1) This is a photo of a Smileage's meet-and-greet, and it's almost 4 years old already
2) It's a well-known photoshop, the facial expressions have known to have been altered:
3) If you knew something about how that photo came out, it has nothing to do with "le crazy otakus le cum on le hand so randum XD". And if you knew how those events are run, you'd know these rumors are idiotic, which is why nobody in Japan takes seriously.
Now please stop making it so obvious you are a Sankaku reject.
Are they going to have to suck dicks for their next job>
Working Girls! Go!
I wish Airi would suck my dick only after I make her my wife though
Japan is nowhere near as bad as Korea in idol mistreatment.
I just wish idols were more openly exploited (like the WUGs) so there were videos I could masturbate to
Good luck if you're a male Korean idol too.
You're a piece of thrash after national service unless you're some big shot loke Rain. Otherwise good luck trying to avoid getting thrashed by normals.
>incompetent manager basically forces girls into being semi-whores.
>gets forgiven and treated like it was nothing because "it can't be helped".
>he has the nerve to put all the blame on the director.
Fuck that piece of shit.
Are they aware that working girl is a euphemism for prostitute?
Good luck if you're a male Korean idol too.
You're a piece of thrash after national service unless you're some big shot like Rain (who somehow managed to avoid the frontlines of the DMZ). Otherwise good luck trying to avoid getting thrashed by normals.
New thread >>100588299
Probably not yet
>not putting the show title in the OP
Probably a little. But working is not really an innuendo laden word in Japan. It has some weird bushido work ethic ambuguity attached to it.
Just search for the best group in the show, it's real easy.
This isn't /ag/.
Oh, you little grasshopper, I see you are still unprepared for the world out there.
I hope you realize you are referencing to the Japan's own National Examiner, a porn magazine so amateurish even 2ch ridiculies for how poorly researched it is. The same article also seems to think that these entrance tickets come in randomly inside CDs, which is absolutely false if you ever bought one.
And I'm sorry, but any of these public events, no matter who the celebrity is, there's staff waiting at the top of the line to spray them with disinfectant. Japanese are hygiene freaks, sorry.
*spray your hands with disinfectant
Also, I scrolled the second link and it's totally irrelevant to the discussion, stop wasting my time with these walls of text please.
You mean a wuss
What's so creepy about it? Every fanservice show in Japan is about sexualizing high school/middle school girls. Are you new to anime?
2chan has crossed the line
So discard 13 and use the numbers to make this?

Looks like that Dokkoida HCG set.

I love it.
