THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Lol nervous Futaba again in a nutshell. Decent episode.

We get to see more of what it's like at the studio with the girls. In particular, I thought this dude is kind fun to watch from the episode:


Ichigo sure has an amusing chemistry with him.

I thought Banjou's motivational words to Futaba were great, particularly when he said "If I'm gonna die, I'll show them a wonderful death!" & "So, we've gotta die with all we have. Right?"

The cameos have been pretty neat so far.

Kaibara's interactions with the girls were hilarious! That dramatic Earphones scene and their reactions though..

Rin getting flustered about stage clothes was cute! A nice glimpse of Dem thighs. :9

Decent episode. This show is surprisingly being not as boring as I expected. Hopefully, the flow will stay the same throughout.

This anime is hilarious. I really love the face expressions they have whenever they get flustered.

Glad to see the trio will still stay together! Futa sure had it rough at first but it figures something would come up :)

Hey, they formed a unit. Very cool. Good for them!

Why was the ending song and preview missing subs this week? Funi messed up.

I've definitely heard of Banjo-san, but I can't say I've seen a lot of his work. Cool cameo, though. Moon Pride is cool but it would have been more fitting if the song was by a famous seiyuu unit instead whether current or classic.

The girls are becoming idol seiyuu. I can't say I saw that coming. I wonder how well they can sing...
I haven't heard many seiyuu radio shows, but I can't say I've heard a theme song sung by the seiyuu hosting. Any examples?

That's not all; there were also subs for non-existent lyrics during the interview.

Banjou haha

Feels like Hata was hinting at it with the most recent chapter of HnG, but who knows.

Sailor Moon Crystal, huh. Still haven't gotten around to watching since I hear it's bad compared to the older seasons. Maybe I'll get around to it soon for nostalgia's sake.

Very happy to see the trio get rewarded for their efforts.
Just hope the workload isn't too much for Rin.. balancing work and school can be really tough

This episode reminded me how much I miss going to the studio to voice act :c
and I also realized that I AM FUTABA, FUTABA IS ME. That part when she imagined herself in a concert and her flabby arm went BLOB... that was 100% me.
Anyway, it was a nice episode and there are lots of stuff going on with the girls! So excited!
Oh, and I loved Moon Pride as the ending this week. Awesome :P

At first I giggled because it did sound lame. But then again, it's functional and sounds OK. Unlike other cringey idol unit names from recent anime. Muse, the Cinderella anime ones, etc.

Next episode seems to be focused on Ichigo. And since we're going down the idol route a bit, I hope we don't get into melodramatic stuff like the case with Mio in the first season of Idolmaster Cinderella Girls. Ichigo seems vulnerable to fall into that, but she seems humble if anything, so I hope not.

well it was obvious they'd be called earphones since they're called that in the ED too. but anyways, i'm happy the girls are getting more work~

and it looks like we got sailor moon crystal's OP in the ED this time.

Ichigo is the Queen! Cute shy Rin in mini-scirt, Futaba almost unconscious because of news - they are all good. And I more and more love their face expressions, it's so funny.
I made a gif from one of my favourite moment.

The build-up the guy made for the unit name was pretty funny. Not sure how I feel about Ichigo's hairstyle there at the end, though. Either way, enjoyable episode and loved the ED as usual.
Insert philosophical quote or exceptional picture here.

Why does that picture remind me so much of the original Bumblebee?
Banjou Ginga was a treat for this episode, and the perfect voice of encouragement for Futaba. His CV consists of a major line of supporting and narration roles (very few Main ones), but his tenure as a Seiyuu spans all the way back to the Original Dragon Ball, MS Gundam, Dr. Slump and City Hunter Era (we're talking 1970's era). Even nowadays he is still relevant. Mad respect for him and his contributions to the Industry. Inspirational.

After watching all the struggles and agonizing that Zuka had to go through in Shirobako, I'm really happy that we didn't have to go through the same with Futaba here. Essentially they did the radio show for the length of the anime (3 months so I guess 1 cour), and had good enough reviews to keep things going. Seeing them all react differently to the unit formation announcement was nice, and I get the feeling Ichigo will make a play for the center role from the get-go. Futa-Futa and Rin-Rin probably won't mind much. It was hilarious seeing Rin-Rin get all flustered at wearing a short skirt.

Having never watched Sailormoon, I don't think I've ever heard MoonPride before. In any case:

Don't, it'll ruin your memories of Sailor Moon. That being said Moon Pride was a decent song, not Moonlight Densetsu level for sure but it's better than the songs they used for DBZ Kai and DB Super as far as remakes go.

The show was pretty good until now. But i guess i hoped that this show will be somewhat different from what i see now.
Give me more auditions, voice acting, struggling to get roles, tough competition between seyuus and etc. Maybe some cameo of known seyuu could step into main role and act as some important character. Web radio was already very vaguely introduced plot point. But ... Idol unit? Really???

Just cut Shizuka's scenes from Shirobako into one episode and you will have better "Seyuu's Life" than this is.

Have to admit that the moment idol unit was mention my hand was hovering over the drop button, ioli stuff is meant to be avoided in my opinion.
Tho i will have a look next week hopefully it's not as bad as i think it is.

I know seiyuu do an endless variety of things... *remembers video of a blindfolded Kamiya being poked with Daikon on stage on some random show* I hope the show continues to focus on those things and doesn't focus too hard on being an idol/idol unit.

Eh? Idol unit? Please no... hopefully they do veer more toward actual voice acting and focus more on them finding roles, etc.

Moon Pride this week, eh?

Kuroko no Basket web radio had their theme song by Kagami's and Kuroko's voice actors, seiyuu radio Dear Girl ~stories~ has all of their themes sung by OnoD and HiroC (the hosts). I can't remember any other radio shows right now...

Wonder if there will be one of those episodes where Rin gets sick from overload and they have to take care of her. Seems common in these kinds of anime.

I've been doing research on seiyuu because I was interested in it, so I'm aware of some of it, but the show is interesting so far. The most interesting parts are cameo seiyuus and different anisongs featured in ED. Didn't think that the short hair girl was the main of main girls, though.

Small roles, but Masumi Asano, the co writer, also participates in each ep. I guess she's like the mentor of these new main seiyuus?

It's do damn entertaining to watch every week
"In the past few months since we met, I've shared many memories with Nagato. Though I've also shared memories with Haruhi, Asahina-san and Koizumi, I found that I've experienced more events with Nagato in particular. In fact, every situation seems to involve her. I might as well mention this, she's probably the only person to cause the bell within me to shake the most vigorously..." ~ Kyon, TMOSH

Seiyuu seems to be hard to do, you need every time to looking for a job because your role in the industry is not fixe
