I wasn't expecting such a great movie especially with the slow start this one has. But there's definitely a sincerity and theme of what idols are being all about that makes this anime really moving. The art's quite unique but the two reasons I enjoyed this anime so much was because the compelling stories and themes and the characters. It's a movie about Girls trying to become idols- the movie moves fast but the great thing about that is there isn't any downtime at all. Once the plot starts to accelerate it just piles on the enjoyment from the dilemmas and struggles, the individuality of read more

Wake Up, Girls! Shichinin no Idol works as an intro into the show, think of it as a 52 minute long first episode. It's simple enough, a talent company runs out of talent and tries to scramble together some girls to start an idol group. The characters are cute and the music is great and it even made me laugh a few times, it's enough to make me start watching the Wake Up, Girls! as it airs.

Fear of the unknown, excitement and hope of potential fame... this anime oozes potential of a fantastic journey to the spotlight. Introducing the character arc of center, Shimada Mayu, retired idol, the read more

Get a group of girls together with dreams, give them your business card, and ask them if you want to be an idol. What do you get? Wake Up, Girls! It’s no mystery that the movie is about a group of girls performing music as an inspiration. Although they each have their own different reasons for becoming an idol, the girls of this group stands together in unity to perform music for the audience and hoping to earn themselves a name in the music industry.

Wake Up, Girls! Shichinin no Idol serves a prequel to the anime series of the same name. I highly recommend watching read more

What they have in common is the dramatic atmosphere around them, with less comedy in the series. Later on, they will get the hang of it, inspired by their leader, growing up, and give it all they have in the stages.
