>stalks the idol
>name-fag on textboards
>source of scandals
Worst character of the season. I hope he steps on a lego.
Well, at least he defends the WUG's.
I bet he gets to go first at the weekly 'parties'.
You're supposed to self-insert.
>Being this new to idol otaku
I think you just described an /a/non in real life.
at least he's a loyal fan and will be there until the end... plus probably buys all the merch
>name-fag on textboards
But the guy is a namefag!
He may be fat and sweaty, but look at how amazingly symmetrical he is. His face looks like someone drew one half and then inverted it and copied it for the other side. Which is probably exactly what happened.
>smells like strawberries
>posts about cute anime with other cute /a/nons
>wouldn't ever name-fag on textboards
>source of everything good in the world
There, I described an /a/non for you.
The rest might fit, but that one? Fuckno!
>source of scandals
More like a member of the irc crew
Is that the new Perfect Blue? Fake rape when?
Next flashback. Stay tuned.
used to be, now I'm average weight
>smells like strawberries
>posts about cute anime with other cute /a/nons
>wouldn't ever name-fag on textboards
I'd rather kill myself. Check.
>source of everything good in the world
I can't stop laughing, Kaya's face is like "Bitch I'm a fucking crocodile, what are you gonna do about it?"
Spotted the prayer guy in the O of Official.
Uh, no it doesn't. His eyes are different, his chin line is two different lines, his hair is different, one side of his smile curls up a bit while the other curls down.
Ｔｈｉｓ ｃｈｕｕｂｏｕ ｓｔｉｌｌ ｃａｒｅｓ ａｂｏｕｔ ｗａｓｈｅｄ－ｕｐ ｓｌｕｔｓ． （ ﾟ Дﾟ）
Stop that shit.
Is Yamakan trying to tell us something.
I feel a bit better about our general thread quality if that's an accurate representation of 2ch in the show.
2ch are autists but, at the same time, very evil and bitter. Yeah, I know some /a/nons are this way as well, but the amount of them there is incredibly high.
So they spent 10 seconds with the liquify tool in Photoshop. Your point?
/a/ is more playfully evil.
I think it's the constant porn that unifies us, that and our hatred of the rest of 4chan.
>Yoshino above Airi
We are no longer brethren, chartfag.
2ch is on a whole different level at shitposting
coparing to it 4chan's one is like baby's first
What does this mean?
>her parents were killed in the tsunami
Remember Peal Harbor, japan?
I kind quite remember the middle but the first one is the katakana for 'the pleasure of' and the last one is 'inside.'
>I've always been good at playing corpses
oh fuck, suffering confirmed
Who were the two girls talking during the preview?
Can she get any worse?
Say that to my face and not online, and see what happens.
No. Tripfags, namefags, and other forms of attentionwhores do not exist so long as there is a filter.
I was wondering what happened to animation quality this episode?
They even shortened the performance section and resorted to animating lips only in most of the scenes. Is it budget cut after the ONA? Please explain.
I tried to ask the same question in >>100859255, but OP threw an autism fit at me and left. I'm pretty concerned, as I started to like this series very much due to realistic vibe.
Of course not. She's the best.
>I was wondering what happened to animation quality this episode?
Yamakan running out of animators. Few days ago he tweeted asking for help.
Ordet is on it's last legs.
Can’t wait for it to die. I might legitimately pop a bottle of champagne on that day.
Jesus Christ, that's just depressing. I had such high hopes with this show - finally some realistic side of this whole idolm@ster business with interesting characters and setting. And it's slowly sipping down the drain? I hope they'll rescue this somehow.
I'll give you interesting characters and setting, but c'mon, realistic? It's unrealistic in its own way.
But Yamakan gets props because he succeeded in surrounding himself with JKs.
I want to save their smiles.
The tweets were weeks ago, after chapter 1. They said they were only at EP3 and really tired because lack of personal. But Yamakan never said something about it again, so i hope this means he got the animators and everything will be alright from now.
Also, he said he was really sorry about the QUALITY and will surely fix this in the BD.
>Making a gif out of this instead of that but slap.
we are more lawful neutral
How often does this happen that a studio finds themselves needing more animators in the middle of production? Why'd they walk out on work? Just curious.
Happens everyday at SHAFT.
>Why'd they walk out on work?
It's not that animators quit, but that they got behind on their schedule (probably because they made a movie at the same time as a series)
>yamakan is saving anime
Maybe if they payed more to animators...
Why doesn't Mayu just advise everyone about how to be successful idols?
Why is Matsuda so fucking incompetent?
Because it's moe.
No animator in Japan tries to get into the industry for the salaries.
Maybe if producers tried to market to wider audience instead of ripping off otaku.
He's looking more like Adachi every episode.
>Hey Minami, good job
>Yeah Minami, good job
>Good job Minami
>Keep up the good work, fa-Minami
Being manager is suffering
It's not ripping off if they fork it up willingly
Why is Miyu the only one with decent taste in legwear?
Them Miyuus, god damn.
>No one discuss about drama in this episode.
It was forced, it was dramatic.
I look forward to these each week almost as much as the episode.
>More realistic than idolm@ster
The only difference it that it has pantyshots but everything else has been pretty much the same. Yamakan became an im@s/moe fag thanks to the anime (he tweeted about Ritsuko's episode being amazing) so I don't think well get to see any more suffering than Chihaya's.
Pretty spry for an old man.
Someone recaption this as "Sometimes you say the stupidest shit" or "bitches and whores".
I told you it isn't going to end well. I smell the rape.
/a/non along with his board pals.
I want to protect this smile.
>Me on the left
She knows the secret to hacking into your heart and dick.
Based Kaya, Airi got show down, hard.
"I didn't even know it was possible for it to be that small, anon."
She is a dirty old man in an aidoru body. Probably why most of you think she's "best girl."
I want to get lost in them.
Reminds me of the club president from Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai!
Are you implying a girl like that would ever not be best girl?
>Old person gets overexcited, ends up in hospital
Yeah, this shit never happens in real life.
Best Grill Best Grill Best Grill Best Grill Best Grill
Why not both?
What is your opinion of the best idols in this anime?
When girls like Minami and Miyuu are in the same group, Kaya just can't compete.
Well I wouldn't call it forced but it was fucking obvious something like that was going to happen. Seriously she had more deathflags than an akame ga kill character.
>So how long until granny di- Eh? uso.
I wonder if she will actually die though.
That centre looks like a bitch. Would wug Glasses, Ponytail and Hair-Behind-Ears-chan.
Why is a young girl staying with a bunch of old hags?
They dont have orphan house in sendai? Gotta share with old folk home?
Can someone make a gif of this scene? She takes a drink, and then the glass just kind of sinks into place when she lets go of it. Its like she just goes into slow motion for 2 seconds.
Capitalist cat is best cat.
>/a/ in anime
Adachi, this is one bitch I don't mind you throwing inside the TV.
Me with the cap
I thought she was just working/volunteering there?
Why can't all girls be as pure and innocent as Minami?
Whats the scandal?
She's got two wieners.
She fucked her producer.
Blame HS' shit quality for the bloated size.
>Spreads news about idols
>Makes them money
>Constantly mistreated in life
>Will never get to fug a wug
Fat guy is the unsung hero of this anime
Fuck, no wonder this episode was so QUALITY ridden. Checked the first two episodes too, and they weren't listed there. Guess we know who answered Yamakan's twitter plea.
When will this anime get good?
I don't want drama
I want cute idols
This is supposed to be idolm@ster done right
Man, that guy gets around.
Don't forget that we're all little girls.
Anime is saved again!
It's not about money, it's about rushed production.
Oh my god
So is there going to be a recap episode down the line?
>recap in a 12 episode anime.
Yamakan never fails to impress.
>Actas pulled the same thing and everyone bitched
When will Yamakan learn?
Why is she so best?
>hope he steps on a lego.
Damn nigga, that's fucked up.
That shit hurts when you catch it right on the bridge and you have flat feet
>judging otaku bro
All of you should be ashamed.
It's now cannon: Minami is best girl.
Meh episode. Not enough suffering.
I liked her swimsuit.
Manami and Mayu are carrying the group pretty hard right now.
Those old ladies are moe as fuck.
Would you watch a show about old moe?
>has been described by Lonely Planet as tasting like "rubber dipped in ammonia"
Would you eat this shit?
I've had worse.
What parts are animated by Tatsunoko pro? The concerts?
They should have been done the water thing, it would be far more popular.
>Would you watch a show about old moe?
WAKE UP SHEEPLE
WHERE'D THE BUDGET GO YAMAKAN
Minyami ate it.
What happened to my performance scene? I wanted to see them do it in their costumes.
This part looked so unnatural.
is there a gif of it?
Aren't they all the same person?
That shitty fantheory would have been so much better.
Why is Airi so cute?
I want to pour cold water on Miyu.
I want to miyuu her miyuus.
I would hackingu into her miyuus, if you catch my drift.
I like how pleased Kaya is.
We already know this chapter was quality because lack of animators.
Even gooks can draw better than this.
Would you spoil her?
>9 animation directors
So that's another two more ADs compared to last week. Lots of outsourcing this week too.
Is 2chan still going crazy over this?
I loved that deadpan response there.
i prefer their 3D smiles
I was worried at this point they were going to make a bulimia subplot instead
Episode 4: Scandal
After several weeks of regular gourmet show appearances, Mayu gets fat and somebody takes a picture of her and posts it on 2chan. Newspaper headline: "A former I-1 idol turned into Fatty McFatty"!
she has to have some kind of eating disorder if she stays that skinny after eating all the time.
I assume she's just another poorfag idol wannabe. It's free food so she just inhales everything she sees in case she won't eat again soon.
>kids doing weather report in animal costumes
Is Japanese TV really this bad?
Could've been worse
Yamakan promised he`ll fix WUG on BDs.
Seeing since Fractale rape priest is manager of H-Club, rape likely allready occured in the past with Mayu
I've seen variety shows about this, actually. The water is only about 40 degrees. Bunch of pussies.
Is that Hamdo?
Braid-tails is the hotest
WHAT THE FUCK IS A SUDO MAN?
Japanese technology! Where else you could see anti-gravitation fields used for such mundane tasks? I bet the technology is length implemented in their toilets too.
Maybe she has tapeworms.
Episode 2 looked fine, since it was assited by Liden Films
He's a forthright go-getter.
Leaked parts from new ED
Production studio: Sanzigen
I want to hug this shark.
i hope to see more of this guy in doujin works. He's solely made to create scenarios.
No. My wallet wouldn't even last a day.
Animation's pretty horrible. And the characters still look like aliens (and I'm fine with Air).
They'd pretty much have to redraw everything for the BDs, which seems unlikely.
Yamakan sweared on twitter they`ll fix everythign.
There's something special about the WUGs. Every episode has me smiling like a fool, and I have to admit that whenever they sing their song I have to stand up and pretend I'm waving around some glowsticks to show my support.
I hope that Matsuda steps up and gets to managing these girls well. They deserve better.
Step it up Nanami. With the way things are going, nobody is going to like you It's insane how best girl nearly every other girl can be That being said Airi and Mayu gotta step it up too
saving anime they said.
I bet she makes massive dumps
Matsuda made a couple of attempts at having a spine this episode. He might man up more quickly than I expected, which is cool.
jesus, her fucking cheeks.
why didn't they get it right in the first place?
>I hope I get what I want
What a fucking spoiled piece of shit, thinking she can get whatever the fuck she wants. Who the fuck does she think she is?
I'd beat the shit out of her if she was my daughter.
Mayu won't be best girl until she gets over her TRAGIC BACKSTORY
>Worst character of the season
>not ghost banri
Tatsunoko and Yamakan wanted to produce Movie and TV show ep 1 at same time, due to Sendai 311 memorial celebration. Avex was against, but Tatsunoko still followed through with it. Resulting with Tatsunoko and Ordet working on Movie and TV episodes at once.
Movie turned out ok, but at least the first 3 episode of WUG pretty horribly because simply could not finish at time. Same problem as SnK - horrible scheduling mistake. Ep2 looked better since Liden Films pitched it. Ep3 is a mess since Gonzo.
Hopefully the rest looks better, since the tweet about needing help was same time when they were finishing ep3.
Though actually, i dont understand why they dont just skip a week or air live-action commentary and interview with WUGs to win time.
Gonzo's still alive?
Even then I doubt she can beat the great leadership material brought by my Yoshino or even Kaya. I'm not expecting much from Airi or Mayu, but I think Nanami could definitely improve later on.
They revived back in 2011 but they're as useless as always. All the old talent that got fucked over by producers left some years ago and formed a new studio that I can't remember what it's called but they're the ones behind the Saki anime.
Revived. Works since return:
October - Last Exile: Fam, The Silver Wing
March - Ozuma (with LandQ Studios)
April - Zettai Bōei Leviathan
July - Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyō
July - A Town Where You Live
She was the I-1 center, I'm sure she has something buried in there.
is her skirt suppose to be this short?
>Though actually, i dont understand why they dont just skip a week or air live-action commentary and interview with WUGs to win time.
Because doing something similar to GuP's recap episodes is a bad idea.
It's not "a lego" it's just "lego"
It's like water. Now go drink a glass of lego.
Kyousogiga did it and it was just fine. If they`d just do episode touring Sendai and introducing VAs it would be fine.
>If they`d just do episode touring Sendai and introducing VAs it would be fine.
Probably, GuP did something similar for one of two recap episodes. Don't know if Avex will agree to something like it though.
She's responsible for the fanservice in this show after all.
No it's not.
A lego is one lego. Legos is more than one lego.
You're a horrible person and I hope you never procreate. Minami is a good girl and can get whatever she wants. She deserves to be spoiled.
Lego is the company. Officially it is not 'a lego' or 'legos', it is 'a Lego Brick' or 'Lego Bricks'.
>formed a new studio that I can't remember what it's called
I think it Studio Gokumi. They've actually done a pretty good job since branching off. They did Kiniro Mosaic and Nobuna
Yeah but no one says that. They say "A lego" or "legos"
Communist, please go.
W-why do you need to use violence?
>dislikes the sea
>best girl realm
Is this supposed to be some sort of fucking joke mate?
Because those Takaos are weapons of mass destruction.
The D so hard.
When I saw Kaya in the pink swimsuit, my penis wasn`t saved.
Isn't he basically the reason they will become big?
Wasn't this part of the plan of the boss anyway?
Someone recognized her and that will make them big. There is no bad advertisement.
And I didn't see those before you pointed it out...
>I hope I draw what I prefer doing
Well, she did annoyed me a little too, but...
The characters look like iM@S, almost.
What's the name of that chick next to Amuro
She said something along the line of "It'd be such a shame if I drew the wrong one", nothing obnoxious.
And only playfully. You are very bad humans if you can take what she said in a negative light.
Hey, I was even protecting her, why are you bitching at me?
And you can't deny it that she said it with an annoying Japanese high school girl voice "Eeeh. I don't wanna!'-like.
He seems like a pretty dedicated fan too, it's not like he means them any farm. Somebody would have noticed and spread it eventually, it just happened to be him.
OP is just a faggot.
Come on now, I'm sure that anon was just joking.
She said it in a playful, very adorable voice to lighten the atmosphere.
What you said, that annoying japanese high school girl voice is different.
My ass is adorable. That voice isn't.
>not adorable voice
Plot twist: He becomes too obsessed and tries to rape Mayu.
Yes it is. That voice is clear, unlike that arrogant high school hipster chick voice you're probably thinking of.
This was just plain playful. And adorable.
>Kaya & crew get sexually harassed at previous job.
>lol I'll slap her ass just like that one creep did to her.
Kaya is a cunt.
Jesus christ, ordet, get your fucking shit together.
She just never seen an ass before that just begged for a slappin'. You can't fault her, the ass was fat.
It's just idol banter anon. Gags and shit.
I want to protect Airi
Just remember Ijime Connect to understand the difference.
/a/ is so tame, it now blames the dicks incident to /v/. Even though the dicks were delivered, with justice, by /a/. I was there, even though I didn't post dicks.
On the other hand, 2ch not only joined the dick posting gladly, but they thanked us a lot for it. There were no dissenting voices.
In other words, /a/ has been infected by /co/ bullshit. /a/ would've been proud as fuck to kill that twitter before 2010, but not anymore. But the sheer amount of oldfags in 2ch ensures their bitter survival. Not even /jp/ compares.
Boss confirmed for having superpowers? Does that mean WUG will literally fight I-1, defeat them and finally achieve sekai seifuku? Anime is saved.
You better not be talking about the KitaEri twitter thing. Because that WAS /v/. Everyone on /a/ knew KitaEri wasn't involved and was a victim herself but the /v/ crossboarders decided to latch onto it because they didn't know better and they got her twitter shut down.
>But the sheer amount of oldfags in 2ch ensures their bitter survival.
because they have nothing better to do
Fuck off namefag
When is their old OP/only song being released?
He's a tripfag dumbass.
Iori is a slut, shut the fuck up.
Oh, piss off. /v/ is shit but you can't just blame everything you didn't like /a/ doing on /v/.
KitaxEri didn't die because she was involved. It died because Yamanaka has proven to be a big fan of KitaEri. So /a/ and 2ch dickspammed her to hurt Yamanaka tangentially. In the end, it was the only way we hurt Yamanaka.
Again, I was in those threads. Hell, I was making them. I wasn't posting dicks because fuck twitter, but I was supporting the actions. And so was most of /a/, until KitaxEri was deleted.
As if that makes it better
I'm pretty sure it was done by /a/. Didn't some faggots sent dixpix to Tanigawa as well?
But you can blame /v/ because /v/ was responsible. Similar incident that happened at around the same time.
Yamanaka doesn't give a rat's ass about KitaEri. If you were there you'd have known that it was revealed that Yamanaka had done something similar to her in the past.
Yes, same deal. /a/ did it, /v/ did it too, faggots like to cherry pick and pretend that /a/ was some bastion of righteousness that never did anything bad and /v/ is a hive of scum and villainy and it was all their fault.
The Tanigawa dickspam DID have /v/ involved, but /a/ was involved too. And Tanigawa was awesome enough to reply with something along the lines of "I don't mind the dickspam. I won't delete my twitter account or anything over it. I'm not a slutty VA, after all", referring to the Aya Hirano incident.
She also said she had seen like 5 before deleting them, and that they were the first non-censored dicks she'd ever seen.
/a/ started it, /b/ and /v/ joined in.
It wasn't that blatant, she just said "It doesn't really bother me, since I'm not a female voice actor."
what is uncle mugen doing in wug
>first non-censored dicks she'd ever seen.
So she'd seen plenty of censored dicks?
The tank quoted at the top was published months after the dickspam.
And no, although Yamanaka had messed around with KitaEri originally too, together with Ichiki, the KitaEri stuff was really tame (she had to scream some silly shit I don't quite recall, whereas Ichiki had to scream, in public, perverted stuff I don't quite remember either). And the KitaEri messing ended after one single incident. The Ichiki bullying went much, much over the line than that.
I personally think the angle they used was well done.
Decrepit wasting old ladies that have nothing to look forward in life anymore gets happiness and hope from a young rising idol who is working hard to get her mark on the world and inspire many more.
Truly a great episode for eats-a-lot.
>live on in our hearts
She works in the industry and drew Choku.
Of course she's seen some porn.
What's wrong with that?
You don't understand the "live on" vocab? You didn't know Nico Tanigawa was a team of one dude who writes and one girl who draws?
>not wug is wuggle wugen wugging in wug
i kek'd :)
Time to go back to your home board, /v/ermin.
This actually ain't half bad.
The idea isn't bad at all.
Just gonna need to spruce it up a bit with colorful gradient backgrounds and you are set.
Average animesuki user
Average board user
>Two years ago, there was an event for the anime "Oniichan no Koto Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne!"
>Producer Yamanaka, VAs Kitamura Eri and Mitsuhiro Ichiki were at this event.
>Yamanaka suddenly announced that they're going to play audio recordings from the audition for this anime.
Kitamura Eri and Mitsuhiro Ichiki reacted with surprise: "Hey, you didn't tell us you'd be doing that!"
Yamanaka: "Well yeah, if I'd told you, you'd have said no! (laughs)"
>Ichiki: "The audition recording... I auditioned for the lead, but didn't get that. You're going to play the tape of me failing to get a part?"
>Yamanaka: "He fit better in a different part, so we gave him that one instead."
>(Ichiki got a minor role as one of the 'AGE Team' members.)
>So Yamanaka played the recordings. Basically in the audition, VAs have to recite lines given by the producers. For Kitamura Eri, it was "But I haven't played doctor with oni-chan yet!". For Ichiki, it's "I just want to see a girl's naked body"
>These are not the kind of things you want to publicly broadcast into a busy shopping street in Tokyo, especially when you are there yourself as a guest. The Japanese are very conscious of their self image. One small stain can ruin their careers.
Sure, "Yamanaka had done something similar [to ijime connect] to [KitaEri] in the past". Please kill yourself if you think that's true, >>100889219
Miyu best girl
I missed the episode two version of this. Anyone got it?
It clearly shows Yamanaka doesn't give a shit about KitaEri. Thanks for proving my point, /v/irgin.
It doesn't, newfaggot.
Now crawl back to your post-2008 Strike Witches general.
She has transformation powers as well it seems.
So, the character names are all the same as the VA names. And we're shown video of the VAs at the end of every episode.
Speculation time! At the end of the season, the voice actors will form an idol group in real life. The whole anime is an attempt to convert otaku from 2D to 3D.
How much is it selling in Amazon?
>These are not the kind of things you want to publicly broadcast into a busy shopping street in Tokyo, especially when you are there yourself as a guest. The Japanese are very conscious of their self image. One small stain can ruin their careers.
I'm sure Yamanaka risking her career is how the Japanese show their affection.
>The whole anime is an attempt to convert otaku from 2D to 3D
I always fight myself not to puke everywhere whenever I see the 3DPD. If that's their intention, they are bound to fail...
nah, the one who followed up is 2chan.
STILL it's started by /a/.
I am in that thread (before the dicking) too by the way, fueling the fire to KitaEri.
She wears such a short skirt for a manager.
He didn't risk her career. He didn't really risk Ichiki's either with that one stunt, but you can still see the difference of treatment.
"まだお兄ちゃんに、お医者さんごっこしてもらってない！" is fucking nothing. Specially compared to "女の子の裸が見たいだけだったんだー！"
Man, I've completely forgotten how Sugita reacted to the whole incident.
Damn that was some brutal shit.
is this the lowest budget show of the season or what
Bro of bros.
Sugita is a paragon of justice and humanity in this sad, cruel world.
That said though, if I was a VA and had to choose between seating close to another VA and Kageyama Hironobu, I'd fucking seat close to Kageyama Hironobu, even if the other VA wasn't a bullying cunt.
"I know how you feel man. I know..."
Daily reminder that Yamanaka is still a big name in the industry, Kanemoto and Terashima continue to get big roles in anime and Ichiki is still C-list.
Reminder that Yamanaka deserves to be shot and killed.
Reminder that Kokoro Connect flopped despite pretty girls and an interesting concept.
What's the matter? Have a problem with a little bullying because it reminds you of your high school days? It's okay, you can cry if you want to.
Not really. He Terashima hasn't gott-
y u ruin Log Horizon for me now, Terashima, god damn you?
No, you're totally right. If people don't like assholes, it's obviously because they're the ones with problems.
Kokoro Connect flopped mostly due to the VA bullying drama.
Japan was totally enraged by that.
>During this video Ichiki is made to play a "punishment game" and the punishment is being electrocuted.
This is over the line.
I didn't realize this rubbish is accepted in /a/ now.
He really writhed in pain while the VA who electrocuted him (don't remember who though. Kanemoto, I think?) laughed and laughed at him.
The pastebin doesn't mention it, but he also had to pay his own travel expenses during the PR run, while the other VAs had theirs paid. He also got constant punishment games where he had to eat bread and water while the other VAs got to eat local cuisine and meat and whatnot.
And he was going to fly to america to play KoF. He had secured a place on the team and all (he goes head to head with the japanese champion), but he pulled out in the end because he thought he had gotten a main role that could have boosted his career - and then they told him there was no role.
That shit really went over the line, and far, far away.
They already are a group. Half the point of this show is to promote them.
>And he was going to fly to america to play KoF
In EVO, I mean.
It has always been accepted when used in moderation.
Kinda like :3
you updqted minami's age and not airi's and miyuu's too
It's all in the past bro you just need to get over it :^)
It's a shame because Silver Link wasn't involved and were just unfortunate enough to be working with them when the news came out.
>He really writhed in pain while the VA who electrocuted him (don't remember who though. Kanemoto, I think?) laughed and laughed at him.
Couldn't have he gone to the police or something? I'm pretty sure this breaks the law.
Are they retarded in CR?
It's not like Silver Link was hit hard over it. Silver Link was already paid for it in advance and had the show done well almost all of the profits would've gone to the producers anyway.
It's such poetic justice that treating their PR man in such an awful way ultimately led to them getting the worst public relations they could possibly imagine and cause the anime's downfall and a permanent stain on their records.
It was bound to happen.
He's a striving C-list actor. He had to accept shit if he wanted to keep on working on the industry.
Sure, he could have gone to the cops, and if he hadn't signed any contract that allowed such mistreatment, he could have had a case. But nobody would have wanted to hire him anymore.
Sadly how, in the end, nobody wants to hire him anymore because this shit exploded anyway. And it sucks how his only big role is in a show so shit as Freezing.
Someone else told me that the bullying incident's effect on sales was relatively minimal and that from the start sales weren't expected to be great. Could have still been a factor though.
best they can do with their shitty player
So, this anime is just a less darker version of Perfect Blue?
see the chart in >>100889155
Maybe he'll make some progress with his career once the Angel Beats VN comes out. His character should have his own route if Key sticks to their word.
You can also phrase it as a non-pshycotic version of it.
Which character did he voice, again?
The computer hacker who tries to get everyone to call him Christ.
Has KitaEri ever posted on her Twitter since then?
I want to drink Miyuu's bodily fluids.
What a faggot.
>What a faggot.
Said the shit eater.
How can I say I love her when I can't even eat her shit?
Looks like it got activated again, but it's just PR stuff now, not a personal one anymore.
I think the bulge has competition
You sound like a fag.
I am. Your point?
Did 2ch do this budha man under sheets?
Now they just need to put the Buddha guy in the water.
Did anything disturbing happen in this episode?
>suggesting the cops would have done anything
the cops are more aloof and corrupt than the fucking yakuza
Japan can't into time & labor-saving Photoshoop
Talk about gross ineficiency! It's no wonder they're having personnel and scheduling issues.
All that painstaking painting just to make the background is all for nothing if they can't animate the foreground properly.
I even saw the NHK-World video reporting on WuG... one animator (or the background painter) was even wearing medical grade bandage around his right hand because WuG's studio basically can't into XXI century technology.
(also, picture semi-related to WuG)
BGC 2040 was better anyway.
Seeing cute girls eagerly devour cow tongues makes both my stomach sick and my dick hard.
But beef tongue is delicious, what are you talking about?
Have fun with that.
Have you even tried it?
If you have a real mexican food place near you, ask for some "tacos de lengua". You won't regret it.
Though I like it in fillet. properly done, it feels like it melts in your mouth, yet it actually has a proper consistency. Man, I'm drooling here.
Hell yeah motherfucker. I go to my local deli all the time and get a tongue sandwich with spicy mustard. It's the fucking best, so tender and amazing
I'm sure it's good, but there's some things some people won't eat, simply because of what they are.
Dude, it's meat.
If you eat sausages, you're eating way worse shit than tongue. Hell, tongue is a premium item, and I think it's the most expensive cut other than the short loin.
I don't eat sausage that use pig intestines as a casing, if that's what you mean.
Have you ever seen a cows mouth before? rotting teeth, the tongue is covered in all this shit, you can smell their breath from 10 feet away, no way man.
Sausages (not the casing, but the inside) are made by grinding the meat that would otherwise be discarded (the intestines, the ass, the excess fat, etc). And it's delicious.
But well, your loss.
That's why you only buy sausage that specifically says "no bi products" on the package, same with hot dogs.
It's more expensive, but it's worth it.
There's two important references from this episode
One, is the hot water gag. It's a comedy group's famous gag and is frequently (or at least used to be) on variety shows.
Here is a clip of it on an HKT48 Variety show. Skip to 11:50 in the clip.
http://vimeo.com/70675245 (there is a fair amount of troll subbing in the video, be aware of that. Most of it is accurate though).
Also, the "Jejeje" one of the girls spoke towards the end. Made famous by the 2013 Asadora Amachan. I recommend watching this show to anyone that has an interest in idols. http://earth-colors.dreamwidth.org/59463.html
Why isn't anyone subbing this? CR's "typesetting" is disgusting.
I would if I spoke the language.
You don't need to speak the language. You can use the Commie approach: demux the CR .ass, add some typesetting to your liking in aegisub, and mux it (without forgetting to add your fonts) in a different video file. As for the video, you could use the Daiz way: Download the 1080p CR release, and re-encode it into 720p 10bit with x264, using a good crf (I don't remember what crf Daiz uses by default, though. 24? 18? 16? Something like that?)
>I would if I spoke the language.
But you complain about typesetting.
So Yamakan is really studying about the idol industry. I wonder where the anon who compared him to Kawamori is now.
Not really. At least not necessarily. Such references are pretty much popular culture in japan.
There IS one thing that makes it feel like he's doing his homework though: a lot of the style of the movie looks like it was plagiarized from the usual AKB48 documentaries that their producer releases every once in a while.
>watch the video
>all that bitches pretending to be cute & innocent
Jesus Christ, there are people who actually like these thing?
WuG is exactly the same thing though.
Well, they're very young.
But yeah, I quit idols after the Nogizaka46 scandal where, like, half of the group was implicated, so I don't even trust HKT for purity now. Much less if they look up to Sasshi.
I miss it though ;_;. But I'd just be wasting my time, there's no healing with 3D. Only momentary feelgood that will turn into rage when they reveal their slutty nature eventually.
Which Nogi46 scandal? There was the one with Hoshino and a couple other girls.
Damn, they ARE cute. Which group is this? I'm clueless when it comes to idol in general.
Would be better if they act normally instead of maintaining this "image" of their.
>the Nogizaka46 scandal
Care to elaborate? I want to know the details.
I am lurk in /int/ yesterday and I amazed how /int/ reaction when a Japanese HS girl attention whoring herself (and she said that she is a virgin etc)
Basically, they licking all her post.
Fuck off Finger-chan is mine.
But how can she be yours when she's in Japan, anon.
Well, she mostly replying me though.
I am that Korean.
If you look at the pictures, the ones that were hanging out with boys were way more than Hoshimina, Ashurin and Miyazawa. There was a picture with Misa-nee and Hinapyon, amongst like 5 others, being surrounded by boys, one of whom was giving the finger to the camera. But I remember simply saying "fuck it, I give up" after seeing another picture from the incident, with Miyazawa and Ichiki, each one sitting next to one boy, in one of those fair attractions where seats are couples.
I was also a fan of Miichan before her scandal. It made me drop AKB and move almost exclusively to Nogizaka and HKT, and then this shit happened. So I just quit. Again, there's no healing with 3D, only eventual rage.
Though I still follow Momoiro Clover and YuiKaori somehow. But I've never been as invested in them as I was in Nogizaka and HKT.
HKT48, the one posted in the vimeo link in an earlier post.
Also, the Nogizaka scandal goes beyond what I said in the previous quote. The pictures I mentioned got revealed because Hoshimina, Ashurin (the two youngest members at 13 and 14) and Miyazawa were keeping relationships with male models, which were revealed due to private twitters and cellphone chat logs. So I quit idols, fuck that noise.
I'll find a way
At least this isn't like the Koreans where rabid fangirls start ship wars.
>exactly the same as 2D
see >>100889807 >>100890356
They could have give them different costumes, so they wouldn't look so fucking alike
What else? Every idol's worst nightmare. Although what actually happened is anybody's guess at the moment.
Western fag detected.
Also, if you think they look alike, wait till you see Korean girl groups.
MomoClo is better anyway.
Akimoto is a pretty awful dude, and the early AKB management are also pretty shady. Like Togasaki was a hostess manager before.
The real scandal with AKB is how much Akimoto actually makes when most girls make like $1500 a month. And Akimoto's government friends that he uses constantly (aswell as Yakuza friends). Akimoto and Abe are known gambling buddies by the way. If your oshi is a theater girl only, he's blowing hundreds of thousands a night gambling while she makes nothing and has to beg to do gravure work to make money.
Not even to go into all of the Onyanko Club shit that he did back in the day.
Some time I wonder if it would be better to just let them have a normal relationship.
But then they wouldn't be idols, I guess.
When I first started following AKB I couldn't tell the difference between anyone while I was watching AKBINGO and now I go back and wonder how I ever thought they looked all the same.
Which Abe? Don't you tell it it's Shinzo Abe?
Their faces not as much as all the same fucking hair with awful Japanese cuts. If you don't look at their faces, you just see a lot of black hair on the same costume. And the fucking cuts, man. The fucking cuts. They are just awful.
Absolutely disgusting. Please leave forever. People like you made the AKB0048 threads horrible.
Akimoto was a massive campaign donator. They're buddies.
>Some time I wonder if it would be better to just let them have a normal relationship.
>But then they wouldn't be idols, I guess.
They could be normal singers/dancers/actresses/models whatnot, but they decided to go the idol way. They get their fans, airtime and money from fans who expect idols to be, as the original sense of the word shows, unreachable objects of worship. If they don't like that, they could simply not call themselves idols.
Holy fucking shit christ.
So Kawamori was right? The idol is running Japan?
So which group is the first idol group, at least the "modern" one.
Less of that more of lobbyists. I mean campaign lobbying happens all the time in the States.
Watch the United States of Money.
It's just like the US. Do you really think Obama, Boehner, Peloski etc. are the most powerful men in the room? No it's their rich friends that bought them into office and tell them what to do.
You do realize that post is over 14 hours old right?
Onyanko Club in the '80s, though there were a handful of proto-idol groups before.
Jun Togawa was a cutesy idol in the '80s too, and then she went full loco and stopped referring to herself as an idol.
Oh, so that's what you mean.
Yeah, I guess they try to go the middle-high school girls route.
still doesn't change the fact that Kitamura Eri was actually uninvolved with the bullying and only got caught in the crossfire because of the rumor that she was dating the producer.
Stop trying to justify that unwarranted attack on her twitter account. It's stupid how /a/ thinks they're some sort of internet avengers for bullying someone who did nothing wrong.
No I didn't, until you pointed it out, my bad.
Collateral damage. There was no other way to hurt Yamanaka, and dickspamming was already a staple.
What's the appeal of this, anyway?
They look cute, I guess?
Purity, pretty much. And hard work. The illusion of a girl, or number of girls, working hard for her/their fans (that includes you) while keeping themselves pure.
It can get really addictive, until most of the idols you care about prove to actually be lying cunts in a short period of time.
If you are delusional enough you can laugh with them for no reason and start believing that they are bringing happiness to your life. Until some says they have a boyfriend and then you start cursing them, burn everything you have related to them and move to the next girl playing a stereotype you like.
It's like following a more personal reality tv show. With high school girls. That's the main appeal of a group like AKB (in my opinion anyway). Variety shows with cute girls are fun also.
And then there are groups that have strong performances. MomoClo for example
>Check her video
Whoa, she like a stoner
>Don't pus me!
Welcome to Japanese humor. At least it isn't shitty puns and making fun of women for not being able to cook.
And your point is what exactly? Watching the anime doesn't mean I give a fuck about the VAs.
It's pretty hypocritical to try to get back at a bully by bullying an innocent person yourself though.
I'm pretty sure she IS a stoner.
If you've ever heard an avant-gardish japanese group, they're most likely influenced by Jun Togawa. From Judy and Mary to Midori and Shinsei Kamattechan to motherfucking Hyadain.
It's like having a waifu, only she's actually real, and you can stalk her, and sneak into her house and steal her panties. Maybe bring some chloroform too.
>At least it isn't shitty puns and making fun of women for not being able to cook.
Are you saying that Japanese humour isn't that or are you saying that at least this time it wasn't that?
But people really believe that someone that popular and (I guess) cute looking girl will keep herself pure for real? I mean, just think about it. Even if they were just average girls, they wouldn't do that, but extreme popularity just makes things even easier... You have to be really delusional to think they are actually pure. They're 3DPD for fuck's sake.
So what happens when it turns out someone has a boyfriend? Do they get hated out or something?
Is English your native language? The second one obviously.
It's a game of pretender. You know something is wrong, but why admit it?
>Do they get hated out or something?
Basically, every idol scandal basically boil down to one (or more) of them gettng caught of having a boyfriend.
>So what happens when it turns out someone has a boyfriend? Do they get hated out or something?
Pretty much. Unless they cling to their respective groups for the life of them, and then they get hated by wota while still being in the group, feeding from the normalfags. Like Micchan and Sasshi.
Explains a lot.
Why are you guys watching a show about idols if you don't even know basic things about idols. I don't get anime people sometimes.
Unpopular girls get fired. Popular girls get fake punished in someway usually. Minegishi from AKB48 famously shaved her head like a retard as a self imposed punishment for organizing dating parties and getting caught fucking some no name male idol.
Sashihara from AKB got transferred to the sister group HKT48 for having pictures of her and her boyfriend from when she was a trainee member.
>Why are you guys watching a show about idols if you don't even know basic things about idols.
I only picked it up because it looked fairly fanservicey and all the >yamakan saving animu it got. I really don't care about idols or know much about them, and hey, why not ask?
This is not a place to know about, discuss and give a damn shit about real idols. Go fuck yourself.
But this anime is a tie-in to promote a real idol group. You all need to stop denying it.
There's only one faggot denying it.
>not using the best song they did
Damn, the one without that background and sound noise taken down
I don't follow idols or know anyone who does, but even I know the basics to how idoling works in Japan just because I watch too much anime. You need to step up your level, newfriend.
Yeah so is AKB0048, but that doesn't make the real AKB any less shitty.
SURE IS JAYPEE IN HERE
I mainly follow MomoClo, not as much as years ago though.,and I agree with Anon here, following Idols requires huge amounts of suspension of disbelief (not necessarily because of the boyfriend/purity thing) and at the end of the day is not as 癒し as other things you could invest time on.(eg 2D)
But seeing certain things in the flesh provokes a particular kind of feeling, otherwise 2D would always prevail amount Otaku
And I feel genuinely bad about you those betrayed by your Idols.
No matter the situation, having your trust betrayed is always painful.
And you still need to fuck off.
Do you know why have /o/? Because this is not the place to discuss automobiles.
Do you know why we have /out/? Because this is not the place to discuss bicycles.
Do you know why we have /sp/? Because this is not the place to discuss football, boxing, etc.
Do you know why we have /jp/? So you can go there, die there and never come back.
This is an anime board. We discuss anime and anime only. Everything from this world isn't related to the discussion, especially 3D women.
Now please leave, or shut the fuck up.
I will never understand the appeal of the third dimension.
That's one mad as fuck anon.
When you stop being a teenager I'm sure you will.
>I will complete ignore the fact that I am at wrong here and just call you words that have no meaning on the internet to begin with.
Let me teach you how to spot a real pure idol. And trust me, they do exist.
>very little make-up
>as little jewelry as possible
>natural hair color
Also, after her scandal Sasshi got so much hate she won the Senbatsu Sousenkyo with 150,570 votes.
Still getting madder.
>When you stop being a teenager
Funny coming from someone bringing up 3D pigs to this board.
>God, I bet he is so mad. I sure won that one!
>Let me teach you how to spot a real pure idol
I think you forgot to add
>being a fat landwhale
To that list.
why i got feeling he will star in many WUG doujin?
Uh, we discuss the iM@S VA's all the time in those threads, they frequently do live performances with great choreography. There's nothing about these VAs I like though, they aren't pretty, nor do they seem to possess any type of talent.
Fat landwhales aren't idols.
I smell of almonds, not strawberries...
Which makes the instigators even bigger scum than Yamanaka himself.
But they are guarantee to be pure.
>I act like a faggot in threads for other shows, so it's okay if I do it here.
Not really. They usually get to fuck a couple of poor and sad souls. It's almost rape.
Not really, there are men with a landwhale fetish.
What a big sperglord.
It's like I can't discuss about faust in Madoka thread because it's belong to /lit/
No, really, they all love the VA's. Stop being so new.
>being raped by a fat landwhale
>can't tell anyone because of the shame
You're not making any sense, anon.
How ignorant and delusional you have to be to think that Idol culture is unrelated to Anime.
I mean, I know /a/ is full of niwaka but still.
You sound bitter. Did your oshimen graduated?
You have to be IRC or something.
No one is this stupid.
Here a breakdown of a landwhale
>being a girl
>untouched by men for almost all their live
If that's not pure, I don't know what is.
>An extremely obese woman. More commonly known as a BIG BITCH. Often seen cruising buffet lines or getting smashed by guys who are hard up for some pussy. Much like a real whale, there is a lot of blubber and they secrete grease and oil. They often smell like stale fish although they rarely go in the water.
Here's the real breakdown
>No one is this stupid
You are underestimating /a/, Anon-kun.
Though it definitely takes an special kind of stupid, what with all the seiyuu Idols threads you see here on a daily basis.
>all these 3DPD-lovers in this thread
Yamakan saving anime, amiriteoramirte?
Isn't it sad, little girl?
I actually misread his post and thought it said "related" instead of "unrelated", so I'll direct the post to you then.
>IRC this, IRC that
I am more mad at the angry sperglord who just want to discuss about ANIMATION
>which wug wud u fug
>Why [insert girl here] is the best?
But you just described me. Except I'm 48kg.
That's it I'm leaving /a/.
>I am more mad at the angry sperglord who just want to discuss about ANIMATION
What's there to talk about animation except that it's shit.
Pic or shut the fuck up.
We're all little girls on /a/.
>the weakest link
A grill can easily get laid, no matter what.
>btw I'm a girl ;^)
>famous last words
And I'm done.
Skirt is not long enough
All that purity.
You are not a girl niichan?
Please leave, /a/ is girl only.
One more niggersona.
I'm not a little girl.... yet.
I've still got 5 years to go
Wait, so that's supposed to be Persona cosplay?
I couldn't even tell...
Saving up money to go to Thailand, are we?
>hurr they're talking about VA's so I'll start posting niggers derp
So people actually believe that idols are 100% pure and don't use their fame to get access to all the alpha studs?
Otaku just don't want to know about it.
If something becomes public it shatters their fantasies.
That's the entire idea behind an idol and the difference between just a singer. She better be fucking pure or she's just another skank.
As do i. I make sure to always come and grab the latest version within a day or two of the episode airing lol.
You might as well namefag too you abomination.
What the eyes can't see the heart can't feel.
Forgot to quote.
Is she wearing a diaper?
