Didn't see a thread, The Angsty Mayu and her Friends Show thread.
Here have some gifs.
I'll post some more in a bit.
Is it bad that you start to know each character's name after episode 4?
I don't think so.
There are plenty of character's names I can't remember even after I finish the anime.
7 names really isn't hard.
I only know the name of three, maybe four of them, Miyu is best idol, Mayu is like Chihaya but less bitchy, Kaya is easily recognizable, and Airi is Mayu's bff or something like that.
not sure if i'm colorblind or not... but there are times when I have hard time telling Mayu and Kaya apart
The two youngest are Minami and Nanami.
They do look very similar. The difference is in the eyes and the hair color really.
Kaya has her forehead exposed.
Oh shit I assumed you meant Yoshino. Sorry it's late.
What is this
Why are they in 765 Pro office
yeah... i meant yoshino looks like mayu from a distance
i'm half awake right now ;_;
SO the story so far...
WuG live performance took a nose dive all because everyone that's not Mayu was fawning all over i-1 !?
Except Yoshino (I think) who was too focused on going over Mayu herself because a tabloid journalist decided to tell the others they were filler.
I got the vibe that it was more a lack of communication between everyone. (Especially Yoshino and Mayu.) Which fucked up their practices. And thus made their performance shit. Although I suppose the I-1 thing also is part of it.
I love all the Wugs.
Me too. But some more than others.
WuG Bluray when?
I'm seriously watching aired version for plot... but too bad it's not getting home-theater plasma TV treatment in my living room because of unforgivable lapses in quality!
I guess it won't be unless it gets good ratings and the like.
This was hard to watch.
Well it can only go up from here, right?
That slow, unappreciative, forced clapping. I had to pause for a bit, good lord.
I expect the next episode to be full of conflict, the new producer or whatever he is will lecture them.
I can't tell the difference.
more bitchfest between Mayu + i1 captain and simmering beef between Mayu and Yoshino?
Yeah, probably, Yoshino finally spitting it out and Mayu angsting harder over it, I just want the whole scandal to be clarified but I am beginning to think it was like this, Mayu was playing cupid for the guy and I-1 Captain McBitch, she got jelly because she thought it was otherwise and exposed them and shit happened.
Just watched ep 5.
Why are they fucking up their coreography now? They had it basically fine for 4 episodes.
Apparently they broke under pressure of being scheduled the same day of I-1 and the whole "we can't compete" thing, also, the whole "power struggle" between Mayu and Yoshino.
Makes sense I guess.
I feel like the last few episodes have been pretty damn flat compared to ep 2 which was moderately confronting. Hope it picks up soon.
When are they going to stop sexualizing the wugs?
from episode 0 (movie) to ep 5... pacing is kinda slow to me if WuG is just gonna be 12 eps TV. I think there's risk of "rushed developments" (plot) that will show up in ep 10 or 11. I wish for a steady-state and natural development in plot... and a extention of tv episode from 12 to 16.
Who cares what you wish for?
He brings up a good point though. It's moving slow for a 1 cour show.
Believe in Yamakan as he believes in you.
Did anyone else watch this?
The seiyus are cute, but still 3D.
Mayu and her many facial expressions. That aside she's a lovely girl.
I only know the full names of Shimada Mayu, Okamoto Miyu and Nanase Yoshino. For Airi and Kaya I have some vague ideas and no clue for Nanami and Minami.
As someone who has performed music before, watching WUG mess up so bad made me cringe like hell.
Is incredible that I can at least name all the idolm@sters from the series but not all the WuGs and they are less.
Mayu's getting a nendo.
You mean perform like the idols?
Perform, as in performing music in a Wind Ensemble in front of a lot of people.
so, choreography and all that stuff, right?
On one hand I'm happy to see that WuGs are getting nendo'd, on the other I'm really annoyed they started with Mayu. WuG doesn't really feel like it has a strong leader, so they really didn't have to start with Mayu. To frank I still don't like her for being so mopey and jaded all the time. It should have been Minami or Miyu imo.
I want a Miyu nendo.
Kaya is best WUG.
Second best WUG.
If you add Yoshino into that top 3 then you have amazing taste.
WUG's made by Ultra Super Pictures, which Good Smile Company is a member of. This is why it's getting figures even though it's selling like shit. They'll probably make the other ones too.
Are you psychic?
Looks like we both simply have amazing taste fellow anon.
So is the show still about the ugly side of idol life?
She needs to learn the basics.
Chest bump involves inhaling and no movement of shoulders.
nope, now it's about them getting their ass stomped by not-akb48
Fired. Out. Never come back.
Why are we watching a show that's physically painful to watch?
God I hate how dancing has become shake your booty and pretty face. For Tango we're so focused on not messing the fuck up in front of the judges we have no time to practice "smiling."
Idols are a pandering industry, smiling is a part of their job.
because we are tired of sugary nothing shows they go down easy but don't satisfy?
Tango and idols are not the same thing though.
Why is Mayu so lovely?
I keep seeing sperm in the speech bubbles.
I knew I wasn't the only one.
I love the OP.
I'm watching it at the moment. It's just painful. Should I continue?
I'd buy Yoshino's nendo.
Where do I apply to become an animator for WUG? I want to sabe anime along with Yamakan, this show deserves more quality.
are you in Japan?
>Implying you need to be in Japan
implying you know Japanese to communicate with the studio
(fuck meme arrows)
Why the fuck would you try to be chinese cartoon animator if you don't even know nip ?
I'm not in Japan but I'm willing to move, I know some basic Japanese but I don't think I'll need it since the only thing I need to do is draw delicious teens.
Too bad it doesn't get figmas, I would like a good idol figure, there aren't any.
If they starting introducing nendos you know it's just some desperate attempt.
Fuck I hate nendos, what kind kind of people buy that shit.
people with different tastes
Stuff like these reminds me of that guy with those Strike Witches like figma girls who likes to cook... or something
Has Yamakan saved anime yet? How are the pre-orders for both the "movie" and the show? And is Ordet still struggling with the production?
>And is Ordet still struggling with the production?
Watch the episode and you'll figure out the answer yourself.
>Why are we watching a show that's physically painful to watch?
Well,we watch Watamote, or at least some of us do, right?
