Wake up, girls!
Are you ready for episode 5?
You just missed it.
I just missed half of it.
Has Yamakan saved anime yet?
I didn't miss it. I just wanted to warn everyone of the impending suffering.
WUG time? Wug time.
There was a new episode, right?
Nice. I can hardly wait for my lovely, unfortunate idols.
I hope we see something of Nanami soon.
It's a Yoshino episode.
That's good too. I love all of them, and we can certainly appreciae some fleshing the characters out.
dat awful first live
I have the Japanese Cold, so I missed the first half. What I saw of it was pretty good though, if disheartening. Those Live comparison sequences.
Why do they all have the same face?
I wonder how they'll manage to raise their popularity.
Shitty live performances like that isn't gonna help them.
Even Ota was disappointed.
So you pay more attention to their personality.
>3/26 on sale
They should be releasing the CDs as the show airs, not afterward.
But you can't tell them apart by their personality if they're all bald.
they look unique in the anime
Welcome to the club, girls!
Ugly as ever, wow
Oh god, the no budget really hurts.
I'm sure I've seen this face before from another anime.....
I don't really care if they screw up shots of no-name I-1 girls who are only there to show how mass-produced they are. The art for relevant characters was much better this week.
♪♪♪ Can't touch this ♪♪♪
Chill people... there's no quality issues.
Some girls just love to wear MC-Hammer style sweatpants... just like last week
It's the female MC hammer, Yamakan isn't holding back anymore.
>[HorribleSubs] Wake Up, Girls! - 05 [720p].mkv
Here we go girls!
even I-1 club is stooping low to lolis???
how do I get through the first half of episode 2 it makes me cringe.
By not thinking all idol shows are the same.
Don't let it get to you. It's not dificult.
Why must the WUGs suffer so much?
And everyone drops it just as it starts to get good. Sasuga /a/.
Yoshino was so beta in this episode. And why did they suck so hard at performing their first song, you'd think they mastered it by now.
Masturbate to it.
They spent too much time going over the new dance. Plus they were distracted by the I-1 presence.
She should get that hip checked.
Less talented members like Airi are clearly dragging them down.
Them fucking up the dance was harder to watch than episode 2
Never thought I'd get more secondhand embarrassment from this than Chuu2.
Also, 456-chan spinoff anime when?
>Implying Airi wasn't specifically chosen for the group in order to make the other girls feel more talented by comparison
Why she gotta be a bitch about things?
She's clearly jelly of Mayu.
So if we're going down the 7 deadly sins route, Yoshino is envy?
Maybe pride since she wanted to do better than I-1.
Kaya still perfect, today was a good day.
No, it wasn't that she wanted to do better than I-1, she wanted to do better than Mayu, since "Wake Up, Girls doesn't exist without Shimada Mayu."
Everyone else thought she meant I-1.
Who /cringe/ here from their performance?
So what do the other girls represent?
Didn't pause nearly as much as in episode 2, but it was damn close.
Manami is clearly gluttony.
Mayu is possibly lust if the scandal about her is true.
Airi must be sloth.
The second episode has left me scarred. I can't start an episode without bracing myself for the horrors to come, real or not.
>7 deadly sins route
Gluttony - Minami
Lust - Mayu
Pride - Nanami
Envy - Yoshino
Sloth - Airi
Wrath - Kaya?
Greed - President
Apparently Miyuu is perfect
Nanami = pride
Minami = gluttony
nobody else really stands out much. and it's only a theory anyway. It's not likely any of them will embody Wrath, for instance.
Well this episode was boring.
>Dropping the microphone
Jesus. Their debut was perfect. What went wrong?
Yamakan managed to make me suffer more than Urobutcher does.
This performance is the new definition of shamefur dispray.
At least I-1 seems to have sent home most of the clones by now.
Speaking of Mayu's scandal, didn't that I-1 chick leave with some unidentified male? Calling it now, one of the WUGs spies on her and makes a photo and then WUGs use it to defeat her with the power of blackmail.
Clearly her manager/PR person/personal servant.
It's her manservant. She's clearly loaded by how she's dressed and carrying designer bags.
He's clearly a manservant.
Also calling it that this guy was the same guy that's in the photo with Mayu and was specifically sent by I-1 chick in order to sabotage her.
WUG fucking up everything is the deconstruction of the Haruka genre
At least Yamakan was merciful enough not to have the girls choke while singing.
This is so bad. Why are there only 30 seconds of the concerts shown?
If you want to see the whole concert go see the WUGs IRL.
Most expensive part to animate.
30 sec was hard enough.
I couldn't stop cringing at this part.
>/a/ Wake Up Girls fanbase watches Wake Up Girls live.jpg
Hang on, I think this is almost all of them.
Meanwhile on 2ch WUG is more discussed than the winter olympics.
Does she have brain problems?
Yes. Did you not see her dropping her mic during the concert.
The winter olympics is shit.
THAT'S NOT HOW YOU TRAIN YOUR UPPER BODY YOU STUPID BITCHES
I'm still watching it but I find the whole concerts scheduled at the same time thing a bit hard to swallow. I can't imagine that happening in reality unless there was absolutely no choice.
Do they even lift?
Nanami is suddenly significantly less bitchy.
But she was always the best.
It might have been planned to really give them a wake up call
Only because she had less screen time.
And when she had some she was bitching about her shitty Hikarizuka songs.
It's truly a cruel fate to be a background character in this show.
Why is it so arousing when a woman bends over like that?
Good to see I'm not the only one who cringed hard as fuck to this episode.
Because you just want to stick your dick into her while her knees buckle and she clings to you trying not to fall down from the pleasure.
I am actually enjoying this a lot, but then it comes I-1 and Yamakan is way too biased when showing them to us. It kills the fun.
Why is Matsuda suddenly talking back so much and dragging his words out? He hadn't done that at all before this episode.
Hell, this episode just felt off in general. Different writer?
This anime has so much quality frames
It exposes all of her curves
2/10 would not eat
Rank your I-1 superstars /a/
Time for Goro V2?
Ponytail boobs > left boobs > left flat > glasses.
Should've had her kewl shirt on.
Loli > ponytail > megane > bitch slut
This guy must be able to actually help them, they can't spend all of their time being scammed and humiliated.
They have to reach some kind of succes at the end of the show.
a shit = a shit = a shit = a shit
WUG > I-1
Where's chartfag so he can revise the I-1 section?
Me on the far left. Damn, I look good compared to you nerds.
But you're an Airi fan. C'mon dude.
I was about to complain about the lack of neckbeards being unrealistic but then I remembered they're japs.
They use this thing so much in JAVs that I forgot about it's true purpose and was like, wtf we porn now?
Only well-groomed well-adjusted gentlemen are worthy to become Airi gans.
God damn porn, making me think bad things about an innocent massaging tool.
Barely 10 people...
Being wug is suffering.
"What are you waiting, you shrimp? Just fuck us already."
They should just have invited their friends, after all.
Why are the girls' casual clothes so damn delicious in this show?
Because they just are.
Shut up it's an endearing character trait.
I like how angry Kaya and Nanami look.
the angry loli makes my dick hard.
smh, even encorebro knows it's a bad shooting night for the team.
He knows he's going to get trolled to hell and back on 2ch
No seriously, what is she doing?
Oh god. I got to WUG's concert at about 16:50 and I'm already seeing them mess up. I had to pause, I need to build up my defense for the second-hand embarrassment to come.
Not gonna happen, only 10 people saw that concert.
Don't worry, the concert only lasts 10 seconds, so it's over by the time you finish the first cringe.
Then why did I cringe 2 times?
Nanami doesn't bullshit around, she says what all the other idols want to say but wuss out.
Such a best idol.
Nanami: "Whip out your dick already!"
Minami: "Huh. What are going to do on the bed?"
Airi; "It was inevitable. He's a good man at least."
Mayu: "Please, be gentle with me."
Miyuu: "Ah, maiden's heart is really shy."
Yoshino: "We really doing to do it?"
Kaya: "Come on man, get the fucking clue. Don't make them even more worried."
Won't stop them from asking him, "Hey how was WUG's concert? Pics pls" He was a namefag after all.
>Letting some other producer handle WUG
Yeah, we all know how well that went last time
OST where? I need this song.
He seems like a trustworthy guy.
So why did they fuck up the performance now but they pulled it off well in the movie?
And don't forget that man in black that was watching them, I bet he's some I-1 special agent that was hired to assassinate Mayu.
Well, at least the prez is there to prevent the worst shit from happening.
Maybe Yamakan's next masterpiece will have animators (plural).
Not mentally prepared. They were too preoccupied with I-1.
I still can barely tell the difference between Mayu and Yoshino, why would they make 2 characters look exactly the fucking same?
You must be colorblind then.
Now this is brain problems.
>the difference between Mayu and Yoshino
Nigger, they look nothing alike.
He has smart-guy glasses. I think we should trust him.
You shouldn't be watching this show
>they look nothing alike
She's the same girl with a different hair color.
And Mayu, hope that helps.
Yoshino's hair is longer, is darker and has bangs.
So Mayu parts her bangs slightly to the side, wow that a difference.
Man, Mayu really seems to likes ducks.
So when's the suffering going to start?
They have just different hair color... but they are the same.
Yeah, different hair, hair color, eyes, eye color, eyebrows kinda make a difference.
The suffering never ends.
Yoshino has those slanted chink eyes. Mayu looks like a normal anime girl.
Im 3 episodes behind I need to step it up.
Why is she so perfect?
They're doing this on purpose, aren't they?
I think one reason that Mayu and Yoshino looks somewhat similar is to highlight that aspect of friendly rivalry between them. Two girls who can go toe to toe with each other.
Something about her smile always seemed kind of off to me..could never really pinpoint exactly what it is.
All their smiles look like :>
Her life is shit, you can't blame her for that
Seems like the episode only set that up though, and it never got established, developed, or resolved.
Her mouth looks like a seam.
>mfw they fucked up during the live
Get your shit together, WUG.
>like the episode only set that up though, and it never got established, developed, or resolved.
So what you meant is that it got established last episode with the journalist saying WUG is nothing without Mayu and then developed this episode.
Resolution will come later of course.
I guess that could be the best way to explain it.
oh shit I need to get off this thread now and watch the godamn episode
see you in 30 minutes
Why were they suddenly fucking up the one song they've done every other time they've performed well, even when in front of the old men in the rape center?
Leedah will backstab Mayu because jealousy
Where is my rape douijinshi about WUG?
Because they weren't thinking about the performance, but about the other group.
another shit ep
In a nutshell.
This anime is kinda bad, but it is still the one I am enjoying the most this season.
Former rivals that become bros at the end?
Replace Yoshino with Shiho.
Yeah, it certainly isn't the pinnacle of good writing.
Massaging her foot or calf presumably.
>Minami: "Huh. What are going to do on the bed?"
Don't defile the pure WuG's.
>Everything has to be Shakespeare to be good.
This show is so fucking cringe-worthy. I'm not dissing the show, it's just that there's so many embarrassing scenes that the second-hand embarrassment is overwhelming at times. I had to pause that concert like 5 times and take little breaks to calm myself down.
Have you already learned your lesson and started to support local idol groups instead of national or international mainstream?
But local idol groups make shitty shows whilst the mainstream even incorporate hilarious comedy routines as well as expertly performed songs and dances.
Well I guess it's pretty obvious where it's going to go from here. The message will be about mainstream idols being the 0.01% that survive being brutally inducted through a crazy evolution style culling system that pretty much destroys them and when the wug girls finally dissolve their act at the end they will look at things with a new perspective and be alright with going off to do other things in life. Probably.
Fuck I had to stop when the mic dropped.
Is there even an equivalent of this in Clapistan?
He's Canadian and works (mostly) solo. I mean a J-pop style idol group.
I thought they were the same because usually the leader is also the center.
Is there a word for looking amazed at something but in a negative way? Like, "wow, this is... bad."
Girl groups are a thing so I don't see why they shouldn't exist on a sub-national level.
Miley Cyrus (or some other Disney actress/singer) vs a country&western singer in your local bar I guess.
>nanami on top
When did you guys get taste?
Good Taste General
Maybe he's just getting too comfy.
Because this is the EXACT same setup as the movie where the manager fucking abandoned the lot of them. Matsuda wanted to put his foot down and make sure she wasn't gonna do that again.
Fuck off retard.
If you're offended, by the word nigger you should leave 4chan forever, you actual nigger.
>Nigger is /pol/
That's not a /pol/ thing, nigger.
Nigger is you serious?
this guy seriously cannot be serious
please god no way
Stop responding you dumb Negroes.
That's how it is in every industry
Because no one on 4chan ever said nigger before /pol/ right? We were all culturally enriched and racially sensitive people that judged people based purely on their merits and accomplishments right?
Is wug better than im@s?
also, this wug anime feels like the real life idol group situtions that's been going on unlike other idol anime who fails to portray on japan's real life idol group, see akb48 for example.
also, all this suffering throughout the wug eps. my god
>Is wug better than im@s?
>Is wug better than im@s?
And then the inevitable IM@S vs. WUG vs. LL war rekindles once again.
At least it's not 3D idols war.
>Is wug better than im@s?
/a/ has so much shit taste no one cares about AKB00
>war with iM@S
iM@S would just smash all of them in one second, it's no competition, at all. They will be completely decimated.
LL is not as comparable to iM@S and WUG. It has nothing to do with the idol industry. It's closer to Free than anything else.
Only if its about wish fulfillment.
In regards to what? LL never had any true rivals to one up against.
hope there will be tons of ntr doujins of wug
and some games that's exclusive to ps4!
The akb anime was about fighting a tyrannical space empire that had banned entertainment with the power of idols, why the hell would you expect it to portray anything close to Japan's real life?
This show is too good
I'll try and make space in the next version.
Airi episode when?
I can't wait to be a useless piece of shit all day and fail this dance.
>iM@S would just smash all of them in one second, it's no competition, at all.
True if we're competing in "number of shitty tripfags" category.
S2 was full of idol stuff
Still liking that useless piece of shit Airi over Minami, huh? You really ought to get that shitty taste of yours checked.
You have zero knowledge of the threads, then.
How is Nanase even good?
Jealous little cunt and doesn't even have the guts to be honest. Perfect backstabber.
Airi shouldn't be so high after this episode.
She lives in a fucking bakery and Miyuu is the ones that bring cookies for everyone.
Also she takes the useless moe so far it's not moe anymore, she fucks up so much it's embarassing.
She's the leader, she just felt threatened by I-1 and Mayu who's an ex I-1 member.
Sure she has to get over that, but it's nice drama.
I don't usually lol, but just for you... lol.
The Spice girls.
This is the slimiest show I've ever watch.
I takes me an hour to finish each episode.
Didn't Yamakan say he wasn't trying to compete with those kind of shows? Personally I think they're too different to compare. im@s was just trying to make a successful idol arcade game which was written before AKB48 rose in popularity. You competed with other players through an online system and other idols would lose at each audition. There was no winning in that version, only eventually defeat. It since has expanded much further than just an arcade game became more idealistic like we have now. This is trying something completely different from that and short lived if the group is supposed to break up. I'm enjoying both series in different ways so far.
She is the leader though.
Facts make you laugh?
Nah, it's not J-pop style.
Singing songs with clear voice and keeping a pure image is the exact opposite of the american popstar sluts and their "ohh ahh baby yeah" style of singing.
Being an idol must be painful.
That's why fans have to support them.
I barely even take screencaps anymore because every frame has QUALITY.
I'm still not done with the episode.
hey, I wasn't refering to the akb anime
I was talking about real life idol industries out there in japan
At least it wasn't nearly as bad as last episode's quality.
This show has the best QUALITY since Psycho Pass.
>picking over every frame for drawing issues
Yeah I sure hope this crashes and burns. Why wasn't it drawn by top animators who get shouted at by a slick guy with a megaphone?
>I barely even take screencaps anymore
She's defacto leader. That's why she has a problem with Mayu. She keeps usurping her role as leader whenever anything important happens.
>Yamakan is the WUG of the animation industry
Huh. Is he trying to save himself along with anime?
I don't understand why everyone looks so shit.
I can't even draw, but if you gave me some time I could do better than that.
You mean Im@s anime? The one that's generally considered a giant fuckup?
It was just fun idol SoL. Some episodes were good, some were crap.
WUG is actually trying to have a real plot.
Could you do better than that 15 times a second?
I never even noticed the Psycho Pass quality.
In this show is constantly bugging me in every scene. Only in the last couple episodes though.
Maybe it's a result of them not delaying the previous episode, like they were going to, and everyone's rushing.
>The one that's generally considered a giant fuckup?
Where have you heard that from? The anime has been a relative success in terms of sales.
Okay, this shit is getting annoying.
Technically it's 7 episodes in and they are still acting like strangers afraid to ask this slut why exactly did she quit. It's completely ruining the team atmosphere and is the main reason why they suck so much.
You missed the shitstorm when it started? Both here and on 2ch and 2chan.
And everybody expected it to sell like 3 times better. Anime was a failure.
>I never even noticed the Psycho Pass quality
Everyone was telling them they need to open up more and be more familiar with each other too.
To be fair the anime has had two years to be picked apart and it's flaws stand out like crazy now. There's so many problems with it you'd have to start from the ground up to fix it. It's more of an obligatory gateway now than anything.
Eh, that's just one thing, the faces looked good most of the time at least. WUG faces are totally screwed, like almost all the time.
Never equate actual period of time to episode count. It looks like they've only known each other in about a few weeks at most.
The series started around Christmas. It's now almost June in series.
The movie started in July. It's been close to a year in-series, and they've done one show, a minute of radio a day, and maybe 10 minutes of TV per day.
Just shows how bad they are at teamwork, no wonder they're going to disband.
Where did they say the group was going to disband?
Yamakan said he wanted to show an idol group from creation to disbanding, nut take it with a pinch of salt Yamakan says a lot of things.
She looks pretty hilarious.
>I can't believe I paid for this shit.
>We should've gone to I-1's concert instead.
Are all idol fans creepy Otaku? I thought there might be at least some girls there, but I guess the point is they were all at I-1.
I-1 probably sold out.
I can stand the quality, but the pacing is getting stupidly annoying, the anime is going to end with nothing happening at this rate. Or not nearly as much development as i would like to see.
In the idolmaster concerts there's a lot of girls as well.
A lot of normalfags love AKB48, girls included.
Miyuu fans are loyal.
They are Miyu fans
WUG doesn't have any fans beside Mayu encorebro and Miyu fans
There's also that one Airi fan.
What's this face saying?
This episode was boring as fuck until they were failing their performance, proving once again that WUG is only good when bad things happen to them. I want to see them get molested and abused.
Minyami is pretty popular though according to her episode.
I can't believe I used to tap that.
I don't see any old farts there.
They're sleeping with each other, yes?
They would have died halfway getting there.
There were three kinds of people in that concert:
1) Old school idolfags who can't get over Mayu
2) Maid café people
3) Mysterious people who appear in cliffhangers
Aren't they sisters?
Girls can't sleep with other girls.
It goes against the natural order.
Nah, I mean their segment's star is practically Minami. And I don't think only old farts watch that show.
Anyone has the rest?
Thanks a lot!
>ever winning anybody
The natural order is the Caos
Has this turned into a deconstruction of idol shows yet?
Deconstruction (French: déconstruction) is a literary theory and philosophy of language derived principally from Jacques Derrida's 1967 work Of Grammatology. The premise of deconstruction is that all of Western literature and philosophy implicitly relies on a metaphysics of presence, where intrinsic meaning is accessible by virtue of pure presence. Deconstruction denies the possibility of a pure presence and thus of essential or intrinsic meaning.
Derrida terms the philosophical commitment to pure presence as a source of self-sufficient meaning logocentrism. Due to the impossibility of pure presence and consequently of intrinsic meaning, any given concept is constituted and comprehended linguistically and in terms of its oppositions, e.g. perception/reason, speech/writing, mind/body, interior/exterior, marginal/central, sensible/intelligible, intuition/signification, nature/culture. Further, Derrida contends that of these dichotomies one member is associated with presence and consequently more highly valued than the other which is associated with absence. Deconstruction reveals the metaphysics of presence in a text by identifying its conceptual binary oppositions and demonstrating the speciousness of their hierarchy by denying the possibility of comprehending the "superior" element of the hierarchy in the absence of its "inferior" counterpart. Denying an absolute and intrinsic meaning to either element of the hierarchy différance is revealed (rather than proposed as an alternative) according to Derrida. Différance is a Derridaean neologism that is the antithesis of logocentrism, it is a perpetual series of interactions between presence and absence—where a concept is constituted, comprehended and identified in terms of what it is not and self-sufficient meaning is never arrived at—and thus a relinquishment of the notions of intrinsic and stable meaning, absolute truth, unmediated access to "reality" and consequently of conceptual hierarchy
Who fucking wrote that?
Trivia: the BD of this episode replaces the distant shot with a close shot of the phone flying in midair to hide the moonphysics.
Satoshi Con deconstructed idol shows before idol shows were popular.
Based Yamakan showing off his favorite WUG.
She IS the best WUG
Fucking moot messing up my images.
I know that's not a popular opinion, but I have very high expectations of her episodes, and absolutely adore her little interactions (so tsun towards Kaya and vice versa).
I actually found one of these in my mom's underwear drawer the other day.
So it is for her back?
1. why are you going through your mom's underwear drawer?
1. That's none of your business
>mfw it's obvious their producer is doing absolutely nothing for these girls
How long to 'special events' /a/?
>like 10 people at their concert
>they all messing up
Thanks, Yamakan. I feel saved.
Will you buy WUG CDs? Or will you be a traitorous I-1 supporter?
Webber pls come back to F1.
Seriously, the turbo V6es sound kind of cool, at least when compared to the V8s.
Weird seeing your own gifs on here.
Here have another.
Flaunting her mamies like that, does she have no shame?
I was cheering for the WUGs but they kept fucking up their choreography. Being WUG supporter is suffering ;_;
Don't talk like that bout Miyuu-chan you jerk.
This is pretty much this season's Samurai Flamenco. Nice original anime with fun ideas but nothing groundbreaking and shitty budget so it's gonna sell nothing (although it might still be profitable just because they spent 10 yen on it).
I am really hoping on of the I-1 members gets caught with a boyfriend, and you know the rest.
It's not that weird with all the fanbase being like 10 people
Keep crying. Yamakan is saving anime.
I'm not crying, I'm proud of being part of this little group of people. The threads are more slow and easy to follow.
Oh, okay. Based anon. Keep loving Wug.
Double the boots
Double the points
Even Twinkle thing they're a horrible failure, whatever will they do?
I hate the fucking sound of the turbo v6s but we haven't heard them at top RPM so I'll reserve final judgement. I want the good 'ol v10s and v12s back but that'll sadly never happen.
I'll miss Webber's wobbling too, the hatred between him and Vettel was fucking gold.
Spoilered for off-topic
Have a beach training camp episode and become better than I-1 overnight.
I for one love their little hats even if they were mean to Mayu-chan
Will he be a good or bad thing for WUG?
They all have similar faces because the production company that hired them wanted a uniform look for the new idol group they were creating.
He has the eyes of a good businessman, he will make them succeed
I have a feeling good as a whole, not sure what they'll be put through though.
RIP in peace.
Just give up already.
I-1 has got Toshino and her GF, the Hiiragi Sisters and Tetora-chan. Most of the group members are Veterans of the 2d Idol Business.
Now bow down to your senpai Toshinou Kyouko!
Captain Toshinou+Her GF>Tetora-chan>Hiiragi Sisters>Everyone Else
She'll be WUG's 8th member.
It's the Seiyus who perform in the actual concerts.
Im@s- A lot more songs but too episodic. Towards the end of the series there was something about the difficulty of being an Idol. Sadly that doesn't get built on.
WUG- More story-driven then the actual anime. Looks at the difficulties in being the Idol while remaining a story about a girl group aiming for the top.
I'll swing towards WUG.
Seriously, the idol industry is kind of fucked up.
A-Rise=Maho Matsunaga (Actual Idol), Ayuru Ohashi (Eila) and some other girl.
Sadly, the rivalry was never developed on and the LL arc got aborted by Hanada.
I think we got a lot of plenty stupid evil people tryring to fuck them up. He doesn't look like a total good guy, but might be capable of something.
No way it's SO fucked up as I-1... right?
In all seriousness, it's not all no fun allowed as what that scene conveyed. They also get all expense paid trips and other amenities. Of course, that's only if you're in a famous group...
I wonder, after the slut shaming incident on AKB I wonder if the anime is actually portraying how real idols are kicked out left and right, correct me if I am wrong but for the looks of it on the scenes we have been shown, you basically go to your next lession always possibly being it your last lesson on the group, I mean, those were trainees right? so they are kicked out for good, not just from the choreography.
So...what do we think of the other Rivals?
575- Fucking Sega needs to make this longer. We need more Captain Toshino, Uzume and Mugi pronto.
Nourin- Needs more music. On another note, Yukatan (both 3d and 3d) is a nice singer. Aikatsu-esque performance in the first episode was nice.
Super Sonico- Disappointed at the CG performance in First ep.
And here's to hoping that 7th Sisters will be there for the 10th or perhaps the 8th Idol War.
Does not compute. Aside from Main Girl status, they are nothing alike.
Mayu is more like Chihaya, except Chihaya bitches a little more about not singing and Mayu tries to pretend there is no problem at all, which clearly shows she is actually freaking out every other scene.
All that proves is that Center is always red cuz muh sentai.
I guess that might be in auditions, but there is no way they kick and already member of the group like that (Unless those in I-1 are just newbies trying to get in, but since they are with the "pros" i thought they were part of it too)
The AKB shaming incident was more the girl attention whoring than other thing, really. She did the video, not the production, i don't think she was forced to say that, they wouldn't do a thing that obviously gives them a bad image just because "lol we are an evil industry". The girl is even in the group nowdays and she even looks better with short hair.
I stretched the definition for Honoka and Ichigo.
In most promo art, their colour symbol is orange and pink.
That's what I don't get, the main girls are there, and the rest can't be just auditioning in that case, they may be just the lowest tier or something, they are even called by number.
Seems it works like a company. You start from the bottom and work your way to the top or if you're lucky and you're insanely cute and can sing, you'd instantly jump up to the main group.
I wonder how much bullying there is on I-1, the other bitch doesn't seem to like the idea of Mayu being back to business., of course I also hate the whole "you caused a lot of trouble for us" mentality on all branches of Japanese culture.
Is that why when someone's friend or relative introduces themselves they go, "Sorry [if] my friend/relative caused you so much trouble" even if they didn't even do anything troubling?
Yeah, in Japan you cause trouble just by existing.
So that's why they are dying out.
Better to die out than let subhumans in your country en masse like in Yurop and 'Murrika.
We all know this is gonna have a happy ending right? Riiiiight???
I would love this series to end with them getting a big break on their way to their biggest concert. Sold out tour. Only for all of them to die in a bus accident on the way to the concert. That would be the best ending ever! Or at the very least a homage to The Italian Job with them hanging over a cliff.
I hope so... for the WUGs, I-1 deserves to fall down by all the stuff the industry does.
I've been confusing Shiho with Hina for way too long.
Way kewl, mah edgebro.
Only for the blind. Flamenco was too early for its time. The world was not ready to handle the anime that will save all anime
How does one make the red not being fucked up?
MY FUCKING SIDES
Five episodes and we don't know why Mayu was kicked from her former idol group yet.
Knowing Japan, it might have been some kind of misunderstanding.
I'll miss you Japan but at least you can die Japanese
It was the other bitche's bf, she was playing cupid but the bitch thought she was doing her some NTR, she outed Mayu and everything went to shit.
She didn't like being there.
What does this mean? This is my first idol show so I'm probably missing something obvious here.
It's a sign of insecurity, and Chihaya from im@S does it all the time.
Surpass us WUG.
We will wait for you at the top.
We will wait for you at Saitama.
Are you fucking kidding me...
Chihaya is such a shitty idol.
Get fucked, Chihaya is a lovely idol.
Fight me you faggot.
>Chihaya is a lovely idol
Yeah no, you have shit taste.
She was photographed speaking to a man in a park.
I don't ever want to see Nanami sad again.
Chihaya is only good at murder.
Is it me or episode had less QUALITY than usual?
An excellent quality to have.
Is it bad that I want her tits to smoother my dick?
Hey theres what i came here for. Still dont get why the hell Airi isnt dead last though.
Less than last week's, but off-model shots were still in abundance.
>there are people who picked this up
>there are people who haven't dropped this
456 for background waifu of the year
>there are people who still shitpost like this
Haruka will pretend her from your lies.
Even for a far shot, it hurts to look at.
>Nanami > Miyuu > Minami > *
You guys got it exactly right? Faith in /a/ restored.
What a bro.
I was sad to see him so disappointed.
I don't even see the pairings in this.
Maybe Leader x Mayu, considering the last episode.
Of course the old slut can be paired with anyone, she would teach them the ropes. And by the old slut I mean Kaya.
Kaya should be paired with Yoshino.
Hell yes, my two fav WUG's
>that jealous Mayu
Honestly, why the fuck is Matsuda in this show? He is such an inexcusably useless piece of shit that should be fired.
He's the lazy good-for-nothing producer to counter iM@S. It's realistic. You just don't get glorious Yamakan style.
He may do well job wise, but iM@S's producer does a horrible job with bonding with the idols. It's realistic in it's own way.
Anon, please, don't do this to me.
And he bonds just fine.
He's not here to act as a self-insert I guess.
I can SI into some sheep who can't do anything on his own pretty well.
Haruka helped the other idols more than he did.
Rape doujins when?
Minami dropping the mic hurt so bad.
The first song was painful, especially the audience's reaction, but they seemed to get it together a bit during the second song, and the audience still cheered them on. The end of the episode was optimistic.
So is this show still about the not so happy side of idol life?
I'd fuck the shit outta her.
NO, THIS PIECE OF SHIT ARE NOT HEROES!
He's either a friend of the prez back from the days of old, or a scumbag who'll be gone by next episode.
Although, if he had NORMAL glasses, there would be something to fret about. Normal eyewear on characters like that usually imply "series antagonist". It's the ones who look like normies that are the most corrupt.
He went to the concert, he must be a good guy inside.
She's currently 15, and she was probably 13-14 in that gif.
Isn't that too old?
Probably someone who pushes WuG to L1 level.
Just the right age.
Which WUG would you want to manage and by manage I mean sexually abuse?
Is it wrong to want to throatfuck Miyuu until she passes out?
Why is she so popular for abuse
She stays pure even after being abused since the very concept of sexuality is alien to her. Just one more reason to protect her.
Because she's so pure and innocent that she probably doesn't even know that the thing between peoples legs have more function other than peeing.
She doesn't see anything wrong...
This is just a set phrase with the intention of being polite. We're not used to it in the West, that's it. As well as being sorry for every simple thing, that's something I can't understand but they do it all the time, even if they don't mean it. Most of the times are fake attitudes.
Wug-chan is the kawaii-est
It's a statement on modern idol groups.
They all seem as if they come of a conveyor belt.
she's the youngest
Nanami is the youngest you piece of shit, Minami is the second youngest.
I don't get it why do I look forward to Quality Up! Girls the most every week?
>WUGs see your dick.jpg
Nanami's face is so perfect there. I love her to pieces.
I'd like to see an episode of wug with a mechaike parody, complete with kicking minami or miyu in the head
I'm enjoying this show the most despite all the quality. The statement it's making and the whole atmosphere and the girls characters and relationships are just too good!
because it's the best show
It'll get better, right?
Kaya is getting real tired of the President's shit.
She's also getting real tired of how Producer doesn't have a sack. This is nothing like her idolm@ster animes.
Hope so, once they get more successful it'll be like Christmas every week.
What was the song Nanami wanted to play?
Nanami loves Hikarizuka Revue (homage to Takarazuka Revue an all female musical theater troupe very popular in Japan)
Just googled Takarazuka, this girl.
I can't wait to see WUG successful, if we ever get to that point.
Trust >>101714737, he is your friend. He fights for freedom.
I am anon, I really am hoping he is our saviour.
I don't know, I feel like he will fuck up everything like the last guy who wanted to take care of everything. The suffering will never end.
That would be really retarded though if they did the same thing twice in the plot.
it isn't supposed to be like idolm@ster
He looks more like a guy that can actually get the job done but the issue is how.
He does look shady though. He will definitely use methods that the WUGs won't approve of.
But it won't be as bad as second episode.
Something that can make one of the WUG snapped, but not as cringed as second episode. I can feel it
Hope so, more sexualized WUGs and suffering is always great.
The I-1 factory is too amusing. So blatantly made the bad guys.
>"Sorry we seem like amateurs"
Who the fuck puts that in their posters?
Lovely little epsiode but didn't move the plot much. Next episode looks good though.
They're trying to score points with some clumsy moe
Is she sitting in a bowl of soup/udon or whatever
She worked in a ramen shop, so I guess it's a ramen bowl.
If WUG is moe what is I-1 Club?
edgy grimdark aidorus for mature viewers only
No tie, what a plebeian.
When will the WUGs start slapping each other? Dear Leader seems like is going to be the first one to snap.
Mayu's gonna get slapped.
Why is Yamakan trying so hard to make the guy look bad?
Does he have a grudge with an Idol manager or something?
There should have been some slapping in the bathroom or something last episode.
Prez mentioned in the last episode that he built I-1 all by himself just with his love for idols.
I guess we will soon get some backstory why he treats them like shit now.
It's building up. Next ep is called Not Yet...
Mayu was his waifu, but she betrayed him.
So they can just go and sing somebody else's songs without permission? Where is the Nip RIAA?
Sounds great to me.
Maybe she was rape.
That'd be like cracking down on cover bands at bars. WUG are small potatoes.
My favorite characters right now are the president and the greasy fanboy.
In my country they crack down on weddings. And I remember some story about a poor old man playing Beatles songs with his harmonica in Japan getting caught...
WUG president or I-1 president?
The marketing is going quite fast. Already lots of CDs for sale and now even a nendo?
Could have been just a deal they made. Like how Watamote got a nendo. I don't remember seeing GSC as a sponsor though.
