    Hmmm, just watched Wake Up Girls episode 1 and I liked it more than the movie. I like that it had more interactions between the girls and I also really liked the "week after" scenario more interesting than the lead up to the concert itself, because the "we're going to perform anyway" thing was pretty cliche.

    It'll be interested to see how Yamakan balances celebrating and criticizing idol culture. Personally, I'm not a big fan of works that take a super scathing approach - while I acknowledge they're often saying something that needs to be said, they generally don't make me stop being a fan, they just make me more weary and defensive about it. Whereas works that celebrate but also criticize tend to be far more enjoyable, but can feel like they're not actually accomplishing much in the end because they aren't being critical enough. My guess is Yamakan will tend towards the latter - and I'll probably like the show more because of it.

    Re: panty flashes... I know a couple girls who perform at local anime conventions and have also made it on Japanese talent shows. I don't know what they did for the Japanese performances, but here they just wear bike shorts or something similar if they're performing something where their skirts won't cut it.

    P.S. Looks like I may end up watching Nisekoi as well, my Shaft fangirl of a girlfriend likes it.

    Dude, you were supposed to go like "That's not social commentary, they copped out!" And then I'd be all like "I know. Trolled." Actually, I thought the scene was funny despite the cop-out.

    The Silver Spoon comparison has always struck me as a bit superficial to be honest. Judging by the first episode, this is about crazy fanboyism and not agriculture. My biggest worry: they'll tone down the fanboy jokes in favour of also-run school comedy once he actually meets his idol.

    BTW, I think Wizard Barristers is a pretty good addition to the season. Granted, it's as silly as most of the other stuff I've seen this season, but it brings some much needed AWESOME to the table. Just hoping that the series progresses better than Galilei Donna did.

    My main problems with WUG so far are dull voice acting and the fact that most of the girls haven't yet gotten their chance to stand out as fun or interesting characters. However, it has potential to be great, and the more down-to-earth feel sets it apart nicely from the saccharine Love Live and wacky iDOLM@STER. Hope Yamakan doesn't bomb the show like he did with Fractale.

    Man, what a nice big potshot you just did there. Fine, let's see if Yamakan lives up to his promise.

    Wake Up Girls strikes me as the kind of thing I might have been interested in if it were another season. And if you turn out to be right about the social commentary I might stick around for a look. I'm not surprised you like it since it's less... "garish" than a lot of the other shows this season.

    Speaking of idol culture... did you catch Nourin's opening scene?

    I do actually agree that this season is a stinker, the lack of variety is very noticeable. I just disagree on which shows are the silver lining.

    I want to like Nisekoi because it's Shaft, but in the end I find I'm on the opposite side of you and Enzo in this debate: even Shinbo can't cover up how bland the first episode was. Meanwhile Monogatari SS was one of my favourite 2013 shows.

    I've seen the prequel for Wake Up Girls, what I still need to see the first TV episode. With the amount of anime I've watched this week to sample the new shows, 75 minutes in one go would have just been too much.

    To be honest at the moment I'm leaning towards dropping Wake Up Girls and Nisekoi. With Nourin, Sakura Trick and Seitokai Yakuindomo having pretty much secured their positions on my list (along with The Pilot's Love Song but that's a different genre), the competition for any other comedy slots I decide to open is going to be a blood bath since I kind of liked D-Frag, Engaged to the Unidentified and Hamatora as well. I worry about genre fatigue, even taking into account that SYD's sense of humour is a rather... "unique" among comedy anime.

    On the other hand, I may keep Super Sonico just because it's unabashed moe service might actually be a nice change of pace from all the more overtly comic stuff. How's that for guilty pleasure.

    I'm keeping four careovers: NagiAsu, Tokyo Ravens, Kill ls Kill, and Golden Time. There's also Inari KonKon and Wizard Barristers still to come.

    The wait is over

    NagiAsu slowly grew on my during it's first cour after a weak first few episode, but yeah, the "return" episode has me pretty pumped too. My girlfriend has been a big fan for a while so I'm guessing she's going to feel vindicated.

    Actually, a lot of the shows I'm really excited for right now are carryovers from fall, with NagiAsu and Tokyo Ravens being the ones I'm most interested in.

    And yeah, I did see Refrain. Liked the early episodes, didn't care much for the main route story. So basically, I think the same thing as every other Key anime I've watched. Maybe I'd like their main routes better if there was more focus on sappy romance and less on supernaturally inflicted deaths and revivals.
