THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I knew that Yukiho wasn't going to make it through this anime without crying. Her reactions were priceless. Scared of everything and running away from the stage. The part with Producer giving her confidence was pretty nice though. The song Yukiho sang was ALRIGHT*. This is the version by Yukiho's old seiyuu, it's a little sad since it was the last song she recorded. The version used in the anime is a new one by Yukiho's new seiyuu, which hasn't been released on any CDs yet.

The ED this ep is First Stage, Yukiho's image song. Pretty obvious choice for a Yukiho episode. I was hoping this episode would have Kosmos, Cosmos in it, but I guess they're saving it for later.

LOL @ Hibiki riding the cow, and her having to leave it.

Some other random songs - instrumental version of "shiny smile" was playing while they were driving in the van, and the song Yukiho couldn't sing at first was "My Best Friend".

Takane narrating the preview, next ep looks interesting.

Event Phase

Poor Yukiho, I was fearful for her life throughout the episode since men are always near and she could have died because of it, even the wimpiest man can scare her to death and look at how she pictures men they seem to be demons to her. Digging holes gag was there too.

Is it that death threatening of a fear?

That does bother me now because I want to know more of the circumstances of Yuhiko of why this fear of males and don't tell me it's like with that girl in Working! Cause that would totally suck.

There's not much to talk about how she got the fear, but it might be related to the fact that her father is a very strict person.

Background spoiler, might be or not revealed in the anime

There was someone that mentioned snake and it relating to her father possible occupation. I believe in what you say that her father being strict may have caused her that but that means it's the same way as that girl from working! Her:

Lol the difference is for Mahiru's case, her father tells lies about Males, in result her androphobia.
While in Yukiho's case, she's more likely scared of her father personality.

so, the cause is probably different, because Mahiru is not afraid of her Father, but Yukiho is. But this is just some speculations due to scarce background info.

Awesome episode. Hibiki taming the farm animals, Ami and Mami bringing the wrong case, Miki sleeping everywhere, Iori still with her bunny, and Yayoi acting cute (I focus on those 7 b/c they're my favorite).

I wonder if they'll say why she's scared of men. It seems that every Idol will have their ED. I think.

Another good episode as always, I don't see why this show is receiving so much hate..
Miki, I don't know why, but her, Yukiho and Makoto are my most favourites.
I guess it's because of their strong voices.
In the meantime, I can't wait to see Ritsuko make her debut.

Moe shows like this are a lightning rod for hatred, just like K-on. Don't let the low score bug you... it'll go up a lot more once its over, since it won't count all the people who watch an episode or two and dropped it with a low score. Same thing happened with K-on

Good episode. Yukiho and Makoto are two of my favourite idols and we had a lot of them this episode.

Next one seems to be centered in Takane and a cooking show. My guess is that the ED will be "Flower Girl". But crap, I want my Jupiter and 876 Pro. I NEED an ED with "HELLO!" and Ai singing "ALIVE"/Jupiter concert with "Alice or Guilty"/Eri singing "Crossword".

Seconded on the Jupiter. XD I wanna see Shouta already. D: Seeing Touma in the last one got me all excited that they might be in the 3rd episode~ >.> Ah well, I'm sure the time'll come~ ^^

This episode was cute, though. :3 Lolol I loved Hibiki with the animals, and her crying with the cow/bull towards the end. XDD

It was a pretty good episode. I did get rather annoyed with Yukiho's fear of men. I get that she had a strict father, but could that really cause someone to fear all men to that extent? She's scared of them as if she had a train ran on her on a regular basis before she got into the industry. :-/

If her father is a Yakuza Boss, yeah it will, what if she made love to a man he didn't approve of, poor guy will be buried in the foundation of [insert company here] and Yukiho might be slapped silly.

Lol I suppose but could that really make her view all men as some kind of creepy goblin? =P

I didn't like this episode as much as the first two, probably because I'm not a big fan of Yukiho's type of character, but it was still pretty good and I loved the performance at the end. I was surprised though that Iori and Yukiho, the only two characters I didn't like from episode one, got their personal episodes finished first and second. Anyway, I put all my thoughts about the rest of the episode in my blog post, check it out if you feel like it! Also, next week's cooking episode looks really good, I wonder which girl it will focus on, though it seems like it will be Chihaya or Takane.

I hate androphobic characters. They always annoy me. Whether it is in Working, Hoshizora, or this. I can't stand them. Ugh. At least her episode is out of the way.

I dislike androphobic characters too, but at least she didn't hit any of the men. In fact, by the end of the episode, her character showed a lot of growth and made me like Yukiho more than I did in the previous episodes. She broke out of her shell, and is even talking to guys now. I wish there was an explanation for her androphobia though.

The animation was a bit cheap at times. (While Yukiho is performing with her back turned, its looks as if only the top half of her body is animated, and a lot of still frames are utilized.) But still nice to look at even with a few off-models.

Liked the insert and ED songs. Yukiho has a nice singing voice.

Yay! Next episode will be a Takane episode! She's my favorite! :D Extra points for the director of FLCL story boarding it. Plus I liked what I saw in the preview, their going to be on TV!?!

The new song was pretty nice. And I was really happy that they put "First stage" as ED song. This show wont disappoint me ^^

Me too, I feel like I wasted all my patience on that with Working! I was at least able to like that show more because I found it funny...
Here's to the next ep!

A very K-on-like episode.
Yukiho is a sort of Yui without self-confident.
I ask myself if there will be one episode by character then final episode, or if it will continue for more slice-of-life continuity.

The crying was pretty annoying. I kinda wished she DID punch someone just to see some conflict.

I wanted that dog to jump on Mr. Producer. It kept staring at him throughout the performance.

Hibiki and the bull stole the scene for me.

Pfff. Yukiho's fear of men is just so exaggerated. She must've had a bad experience with men in the past to develop such a phobia, but we don't see any of that explained at all. Same with the dog phobia. At least the producer had a reason for being bad with dogs because he was bitten when he was a kid.

Not that great of an episode this time around. Good thing she opened up a bit more to the producer though.

I don't know but I don't like it, Girls who are afraid of men annoy the hell outta me because they act all dramatic -_- it's stupid.
(Just like in Working!!...Inami...she got on my nerves lol )

but I didn't really like this episode, except for Producer-san he's cool as always. I can't wait for the episodes that focus on Miki, Chihaya, Takane, Azusa, the older girls are cooler. IMO

That song is called Agent Yoru o Yuku, and it's Ami/Mami who sings the song from that medley. (The twins don't have their own separate versions of songs, they're all just "Futami" versions, since the seiyuu for both is the same.) Here's a video of her version.

Agent Yoru o Yuku will definitely be in the anime, it's one of the more popular songs. It's actually Makoto's image song, so it could be in her episode.

Miki is actually one of the younger ones, she's only 15, same age as Iori. Chihaya is 16. Yukiho, Haruka, and Makoto are 17, Takane is 18, Azusa is 21. I'm waiting patiently for an Azusa episode.

I think i won't drop this. I actually really enjoyed this episode. Mami was sort of funny before, but she finally got a chuckle out of me this episode. Yukiho is a mixed bag, she is annoying but at the same time i sort of like her.

And I agree with kuroshi_nazo that Yukiho was kind of annoying.

Her and Makoto's ED don't impress me much

A bit disappointed in this first 3 eps. It feels catering, didn't felt natural at all. Maybe I'm hoping for a wrong development? And the music is not that great either.
