The story follows these seven girls who aspire to star in the so-called "idol sengoku jidai" (idol warring states period) of modern day. The Green Leaves Entertainment is a tiny production company on the verge of going out of business in Sendai, the biggest city in Japan's northeastern Tohoku region. The agency once managed the careers of magicians, photo idols, fortune-tellers, and other entertainers, but its last remaining client finally quit. In danger of having zero talent (literally), the president Tange hatches an idea of producing an idol group. On the brash president's orders, the dissatisfied manager Matsuda heads out to scout raw talent. Matsuda makes a fateful encounter with a certain girl….

The fact that Yamakan looks exactly like the producer is somewhat off-putting for me.

Time to see if I can last one episode of this. :/
For some reason I feel like I've grown tired of the shows he's involved but don't want to remember why.

Somehow looking at this reminds me of Memories Off 2nd.... it's a good feeling too. I love that series, with a wonderful OST I brought with me everywhere apparently. Wow, looking at it now it really is old but it never gets old

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed Idolm@ster, and Love Live was okay, so I will prolly give this one a try at least.

I tend to really gravitate towards idol anime, with the presence of several forms of cute inspired girls certainly helping. The iDOLM@STER was entertaining, AKB0048 was good, and Love Live was downright awesome.

So I'll keep an eye on this, but I'm a little worried about the Fractale director being in charge.

Main problem of Fractale was script not the direction. And he still made a great job with Kannagi

In this case it's different because the writer (Okada) was scripting a story develped by Hiroki Azuma. The problem is Azuma didn't even know how his own story was supposed to end. In fact, Yamakan himself had to come up with an ending to try salvage the project (an attempt that failed, of course).


I think Okada did the best she could with what she was given to work with.

I don't blame Mari here(unlike AnoHana), I blame Azuma but I still think that so much hate for Yamakan is exaggeration. Yes, he is sometimes extreme in his speeches but he is not the bad director.

I'm shifting expectations from "Could this be the next Love Live!?" to "... Poor Man's Love Live". Hopefully it'll be a decent watch at least.

No, Yamakan really is a rather poor director, and I guarantee you Wake Up Girls is gonna be little more than an overblown AKB48 fanfic.

Im@s anime had the sameface and still worked, though.

It didn't work as well as Love Live! did, imo, and "sameface" was probably part of the reason why. When numerous girls are splitting time for attention, having them all look alike is not good.

For me a maker or breaker will be if they use cgi for performance sequences. Those really put me off in Love Live and akb4008.

Im@s made a huge impression on me, but part of that was not only the charas and personalities but also the setting worked for me. In Love Live the school setting didn't really work for me, and the sci fi setting of akb4008 was one of the main things that made me drop the series 1/2 way through. So setting will be another important part.

That being said, the charas and their personalities are the big sales point for me, and here Im@s ran away with the prize for me. Love Live's idols were also nice, and akb4008's weren't bad either - don't get me wrong.

Oh yeah. The music part of things! lol

Both Im@s and akb4008 already had a large storeroom of music to draw on, while Love Live much less so. I wonder how WuGirls will fare? Basically starting from scratch, I'd guess?

Anyway, in all these things "sameface" is not so much an issue (at least for me personally it isn't), so unless it gets super bad I am still willing to give the series a shot at least. ^^

Too fat. Try to troll better or add IMHO to your posts.
