I'm down for this. The first movie was actually decent, and this one won't be as predictable as the Idolmaster movie was.

Yoppi's new look is starting to grow on me. She feels like a real leader now.

Dafaq. Didn't this series bomb? Totally was not expecting a movie for this.

Not that I'm unhappy since this and Natsurio Kiseki (which wasn't a idol series, but a promotion for Sphere) are the only two idol series I actually found likable, whilst not being a fan of neither Idolmaster/Love Live.

Unless I'm mistaken the DVD/BD sales for the TV series were just below the manabi line but considering the obvious shoe string budget, it probably counted as a success anyway. XP

And lets not forget the anime is really a scheme to promote a musical act. If the real WUG is turning a profit, the movie is just part of their marketing budget.

(Anyone know how Japanese taxes work? Could this be like Uwe Boll movies, where the point is to lose money and claim a tax write-off?)

While I'm surprised to see WUG! getting a movie sequel despite having those QUALITY moments from the TV series!

On the other hand, I'm worried that it might get worse unless Avex Group backs Yamakan, Studio Ordet, and Tatsunoko Productions.

I heard the rumors and I can't believe it's actually happening. A movie sequel to Wake Up Girls is happening. I'm so giddy as a schoolgirl (metaphorically speaking of course) I'm a huge fan of Wake Up Girls. I loved the movie and anime and everything. Too bad it's still under the shadows of the IdolM@ster and Love Live due to the two being more popular and well known.

I, for one, welcome my WUG overlords "bows head' and will follow every news or anything related to this production. Am I alone in saying that I enjoyed Wake Up Girls more than the IdolM@sater and Love Live combined? I love Love Live too death, but Wake Up Girls appealed to me more.

I just hope they actually get enough animators to pull through.

This is possibly the only idol anime (that came out recently) I've actually liked and I'm really hoping the movie gets an actual budget this time. The TV series took the term QUALITY to a new level.

The pair of films will be titled Wake Up, Girls! Zoku Gekijōban (Wake Up, Girls! Continuation Movie).
The film will feature the return of the TV anime's staff, with Yutaka Yamamoto directing the film at his studio Ordet. Touko Machida is writing the scripts, and Chikaoka Sunao will serve as both the character designer and animation director. Satoru Kousaki from MONACA will compose the music, and DIVEⅡentertainment will produce the sound. The cast of the seven main girls will also return to reprise their roles.

Two films sounds like a stretch (especially after how the TV series struggled in the animation department). Really hoping Yamakan and his team can pull this off.

More Kaya and Yoppi screentime is always welcome
