Love Live! School Idol Project (1st Season)



Original creator : ASCII Media Works (Dengeki's G Magazine)
Animation production : Sunrise
Plot summary : The story sets in Otonokizaka High School. However, it was threatened to closure due to the reduction of the number of the students. That's why nine of them needs to become idols in order to promote their school !
The anime studio Sunrise, the music label Lantis, and ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G Magazine developed Love Live! School Idol Project in October 2010 as a self-described "ultimate user-participation project" which lets its fans vote on the future of the fictional idol characters. Online mobile phone polls have determined different aspects of the idols, such as hairstyles and costumes.

Note : The project already inspired several animated music videos since its debut. Seven single CDs and three album CDs of the idol unit have been released.

My thoughts : First Idolmaster, then Symphogear, next AKB0048 and now this ! Good to see how the industry handle anime with young singers in order to rid generic ecchi stuff a bit !

IdolM@ster clone huh? Depending on who the seiyuu are, I have to see it first before judging.

Huh earlier today when I saw this thread I thought "Hmm very much looks like something I'll like but not exactly expect great things from, I'll keep a eye out for it but not keep a eye on it" however after seeing that vid above, I'm still kinda thinking I shouldn't expect great things from this but damn I am exicted!
I will now be keeping a eye on it to see whats to come.
Whether or not this is great, I know I'm still gonna love it, the power of a vid like that is quite frightening!

What is surprising is how awesome the quality of those videos are. These are above and beyond your usual animated music videos. If the actual anime can keep that level of animation, it'll be a treat to watch.

This should cover the losses from making an Anime about the 'normal' lives of boring and un-moe highschool boys

Yea, the quality of the vids is awesome thats what caught me out and got me so exicted.
But can't deny I have doubts we'd see such animation for the anime but I'm guessing we will where it counts.
Vids did their job tho, like I said frightening how well the vid got to me

Also as we'd all expect there will probably be "waifu claiming" later on but gotta say, I'd go with the harem route here, couldn't have it any other way

I understand that those shows may be bad to you, but how are attempts at decentralizing your market a "loss" in any way?

Lets not kid ourselves, Sunrise isn't going to be making a ton of money from it. Hell, at best they could hope for is to break even.

At least the first PV costed 40 million yen, 2~4 times as much as a typical TV anime episode.

Sunrise 8th studio made Idolm@star into a mecha anime once, and now is producing a true idol anime. I have to say I'm full of deep emotions.

Are you going to say "budget"? Wait! Is your point really related to budget? Isn't it time or style?
Simply put, production time is consistency, and budget is framerate.
Even poor animation is costlier than a high-quality still shot.

I'm starting to get the feeling that people don't seem to get the joke... Don't worry, let me do the following changes so that it's more apparent-

...If people STILL don't get it then forget it- I'm not risking making this any more off-topic than necessary; transmission end.

Ha, first thing i thought was idolm@ster as well when i read the synopsis. Though it looks like its going to have the same problem as idolm@ster as well: TOO MANY CHARACTERS. Less than idolm@ster thankfully, but i still think its going to be a problem when the focus will be all over the place ie. the girls. The very large amount of girls.

50 episodes will not suffice, ikr?

Oh! I see now that you're talking about *financial* losses. Sorry, my misunderstanding.

Anyway, what exactly is this an adaptation of, if anything? All I can find from my quick research is that there are a few songs and albums plus some music videos by Sunrise, but that's pretty much it. Is this the first time we'll get to know these idols in any way or form? The iDOLM@STER had it easy because it was working with already iconic and fairly popular characters. It'll take some effort from Sunrise to make me care about these idols in the same way as I do for Amami Haruka, Kisaragi Chihaya, et cetera.

You'd be surprised at how well large casts can be handled with proper writing, planning and direction. Not to say that one shouldn't be wary though, as it can also go wrong easily (see: Angel Beats).

If its 50 episodes, then it should be fine as long as the writers don't mess up But where did you get the 50 from?
