Picture a dark h-doujin about idols and take away the rape. Then add some angry jokes and bland speeches.
...but didn't they like HanaIro?
So about 1000x too tryhard, ya?
See, and now I have no idea if this just means everyone shitstorms about it or you changed the numbers around.
> mutter something about research and leave
It is one of the few shows where all girls are the best girl. The main male character is also not a bland self-insert, even though he is a ball-less pushover and has bad luck.
Yes, the animation is a bit derpy, but it has inspired actual feelings. It seems like the realistic depiction of the rise (and perhaps fall) of an idol group. I'm not normally a fan of idol shows, but holy crap, Yamakan has me hook-line-and-sinker.
>even though he is a ball-less pushover and has bad luck.
Then what are his good points? Because so far he sounds like a bland self-insert.
>(and perhaps fall
This is confirmed in NHK interview - Yamakan wants to do the story from formation to desolution of the band. So they likely break up at end of the season.
Which however, considering it also promotes real Idol band is bit risky as it would affect their real cariers. But scandals, inner conflicts and eventual break up pretty much confirmed. We dont know about format yet though - wether they`ll break up in TV anime,or he planes more WUG shows to expand on story, but he is dedicated to tell the whole story.
He plays guitar? Also indeed not much good to say about him, he is pretty pathetic. A guitarist that failed his dream of playing in a band (while the band he was part of still exists and plays) and become errands boy in 3rd rate talent agency.
He's a sweetie and he still dreams, even though he has been crushed again and again. He is good at taking orders, but not at taking charge.
Sounds like a self-insert. The again a self-insert can also be good when he mans-up, and that backstory could be interesting.
He's yamakan's self insert, so no doubt he will have his development. I suppose he'll lose his shit somewhere in the middle of the series and he'll start to man up right after it.
I see WuG as a sort of '2.5D', and I think that this is brilliant. All of the VAs are new, they don't have careers to throw in the toilet. They aren't just voicing their characters, they are playing them on stage. It is a sort of 'life' acting thing, art that goes beyond the screen.
I think that some of the girls will have their careers launched by this big project, a couple of them will probably retire from acting after this. I have no idea how well Japan is going to react to it, but signs indicate that it is at least making a splash (and pissing people off).
>I suppose he'll lose his shit somewhere in the middle of the series and he'll start to man up right after it

More like, lose his shit and start burning things.
He could well be Yamakan's self-insert. Matsuda feels like he has more to him than the usual 'bland teenage guy' that shows up so often.
But Director is Yamakan`s self insert?
Anything capable of pissing the 2ch fatfucks off it's fantastic. It's about time they deal with their shitty taste. Yamakan is a bad director, but he has guts, and I really appreciate it. That's one of the reasons I keep watching (and enjoying) this.
>"Why the fuck does that mahou shoujo themed idol unit gets more attention than WUP?"
>"What do you mean we only sold 883 tickets?!"
If he starts to rage against mahou shoujo and moe, I swear I'll build an altar dedicated to Yamakan. He would literally put all the otaku in Japan against him.
Better get started.
Sup OP, at least link to the official source instead of giving affiliate money to Yarashit.
And for those this expecting it to be grimderp and cater to their wishful thinking, give up.
In another interview before he said he doesn't strive to set himself apart from Im@s and Love Live, except that he'll produce idol songs instead of anisongs.
What a slut, she probably meets her regulars there after work.
Way to not being able to read articles. The only thing he stated is that he does not try to be different from IMAS and LL since he does not associate WUG with them, he is not competing. He is doing something entirely different.
The show already IS different, no matter how you try to spin it.
WUG name is already taken. Bad luck Yamakan.
(C86) [Fatalpulse (Asanagi)] - Wake Up, Girls! (Wake Up, Girls!)
I knew it was fake, but still had to check it.
That's pretty normal for a biblical scholar, but suicide for anime director. 0/10 would not happen regardless of how mad he is
Which idoru would you hire for a "bikini photoshoot" then abuse in your soundproof studio?
>not "Give Up, Girls!"
It's Yamakan who we're talking about
Remember Kannagi shitstorm?
Lucky Star 3 episodes shitstorm?
Yamakan vs Shaft?
Yamakan vs KyoAni?
Yamakan saving anime?
He's the drama master
Out of the way peasants, top idols coming through
He can't really do anything to Mahou Shoujo that hasn't been done before.
It's an incredibly flexible genre.
All of these, Hexer. All of these.
Why is she smiling?
It's an idol's smile of resignation, accepting the fact that she will be a cum dumpster for many peoples to come
Which WUG would you abuse?
Where's the live stream going to be at today? The usual guy is offline.
It airs tomorrow, anon.
Oh right. I must be getting my days of the week mixed up.
Nice body. Not too big, not too small.
