Futaba in a nutshell~

I'm glad to see the three working well together despite Futaba's nervousness. I think her confidence is improving although it may still not be quite well there just yet. Their CD debut is coming nothing short of being fun so far.

Gotta love the seiyuu cameos haha, I did not recognize Kugimiya's voice but I guess that's because I'm way too used to her tsundere voice. :P
And man, harsh for Futa to be replaced especially with someone she's kinda close with but I'm glad she managed to recover, she's becoming a stronger character :)

Rie Kugimiya ♥

I knew it!
I knew Futaba don't get this role,
but I thought they will change whole cast or just few supporting roles.
I thought they will pick some random seiyuu.
This was a shock when Rin said she got that role...
Poor Futaba... that was must hurt and looks like she was the only one who got cut from this series... ;(

Seiyuu life is hard.

Rie Kugimiya was so sweet so cute!
I couldn't stop fangirling ♥

That moment when your friend gets something you were supposed to get.. Felt quite bad for Futaba there. Nice to see her recover after being lectured by Hikari and making up with Rin. She's so cute when (almost) crying.. :3

Rie Kugimiya didn't get enough screentime, but she was still pretty cool though. KanaHana when!? >.<

It was hard to watch when Rin announced her role as Uma.

Futaba maturing after some consolation, glad it ended like this.

Rie Kugimiya appearing was nice, and how she was involved too.

This episode added more diversity to an already likeable show.

Poor Futaba, not bad enough to be replaced, but by someone she works with too, how cruel. :(

Well, she handled it like a champ imo...

Aww, poor Rin. She's adorable though lol

Rie Kugimiya this time, huh. Was a bit bummed there was no reference to an anime song in this ending, but their song was a bit cute, I guess.

I just realized how funny it is to see the characters of the seiyuu in the characters tab of this anime.

I really feel bad for Futaba. That must had hurt her feelings. And her friend getting the role instead added some salt to the wound.

Kinda dropped the ball for opting to choose "Into your Ears" rather than the usual "anime song of the week" requests for the ED, especially when Kugirie is the guest seiyuu for this episode.

Other than that, no complaints. Good episode.
I wish Cowboy Bebop never existed.

Poor Futafuta but she should not have been so hyped. It isn't uncommon to change seiyuu between adaptations. Glad she got through it and I hope she can land another gig soon before she ends it all.

Cool to see Kugyu, I guess. I hate tsunderes, though.

What are they doing with that CD scheduling, though? Cool to get to hear it, even if they didn't reference a song this episode. Just as long as they do it for the majority of endings, I'll be fine.

This episode had a lot more drama than the other ones, but it's good to see Futaba overcoming trials

You know, the last few episodes haven't been quite as exciting for me...
If I wanted to watch a show about idols and units, I would've. I was expecting more seiyuu-ish stuff.
Of course, there's the possibility that if the girls become famous then they could dabble with ease in the voice acting field.
I'm hoping that'll happen some time soon... but at the same time I doubt it.
I think the one thing I did like about this episode was Futaba dealing with rejection. It was very relatable.

aww poor Futaba she fail to get Uma role from Spiral Cafe and the more painful it turns out he was replaced by Rin. :(

but then Futaba can move on instead to drown in sadness and jealousy she encouraging Rin to do the best for his role. :)

Rin when crying was cute :3

lol the debut song sales delayed
and no request song in this episode, oh well...

I just wanted to give Futaba a hug once the bomb dropped >_<

Props to her for picking herself up fairly quickly after that; I can easily imagine that it would take most people IRL a bit longer, if not significantly longer, to recover from a blow like that.

I'm finding myself really getting more and more into this series with every passing episode, so I can't wait to see how far this goes~
Will I fall in love someday? I wonder?

I hope that they will stick with this ending song instead of going back to the first ending song with the song requests. Those requests aren't handled well anyway.

Kugimiya Rie this time but she didn't get that much screen time but it was nice to see here anyway.
It makes me wonder who we will see next week.

Futaba had it hard this episode but it seemed she has overcome it.
The question remains will the girls land any good jobs soon and will the be able to make money solely from entertainment at one point.

Kugimiya Rie graces the episode with her presence twice, yay!

Futaba learned an important lesson this episode, and the experience she gained, along with the insight from her sempai should serve her well later on. Rejection is hard to take, as is being replaced, and it's not even the fact that it was to a close friend that hurts the most. Learning to maintain ones belief in ones own abilities is really difficult to do.

Still, I would say half of it was Futaba's fault for jumping the gun. She riled herself up too much, so the disappointment when she didn't get the part was way too palpable. She has been in the industry for a while now, so she should know such things do happen.

The one good thing to take out of it, was that Kugimiya Rie actually remembered her, and not in a bad way either. That's got to count for something at least.

This is mostly matter of relationship awkwardness since the role fall to her own close friend in the same unit. If it someone else, I'm sure she could move on faster.

Well failures are part of life, but it also opens an opportunity to learn and change yourself. I hope we can see the new Futaba in the following episode.

Anyways I'm starting to like this guy now.

How naive of Futaba to not know that seiyuus are often switched up from drama cds to anime. I get the feeling that this episode is a very important one for actual voice actors. Must hit pretty close to home.

Nice cameo from Kugimiya Rie-san, that's some impressive CV.

Goodness, this episode was unnecessarily depressing. XD Futaba should have known better though. I don't listen to drama CDs, but I do know enough about them to know that it seems relatively rare for the seiyuu in drama CDs to reprise their roles in an anime adaptation. Still, I imagine that it must suck to be replaced by someone so close to you.

I just knew that something was going to happen from the very beginning with the Idol CD. It can be really annoying to try to work on a project like that, tell everyone a certain date, only for it to get shifted back a bit because of financial/time constraints. But stuff like that happens enough that you sort of just have to learn to shrug it off. To anyone more knowledgeable on the subject: Is it common for demo CDs to come with stand-in voices? Or are they usually just the background music alone?

It was nice to see Kugimiya Rie make an appearance. Drama CDs are a part of seiyuu life that I know so little about. Whenever I think of seiyuu, I tend to think of anime and narrations for things like commercials and documentaries. Perhaps I should start listening to those a bit more. I think that this episode encouraged me to do so (might be good practice to read over the lines myself, too.)

I really enjoy this show so much for a variety of reasons, and I can't wait for more.

Rie Kugimiya! Nice to see her.

Poor Futaba. She was so looking forward to working with Rie Kugimiya on the anime. A shame it didn't work out, for whatever reason. By the end of the episode, she handled it in a very mature manner. If she keeps working hard, I'm sure she'll get her big break. Also nice to see that they're all close friends, and that they won't let this tear them apart.

Yet another harsh reality of the seiyuu industry :/ Poor Futaba-chan :c I think she's the unluckiest of the bunch when it comes to role offers ;A; Still it was a good thing that she recovered from that. Go, go, Futaba-chan! \(^▽^)/

I feel like the thing about Futa-Futa not getting the role wouldn't have been too bad if it wasn't for the fact that the producer asked for Rin to advertise it on the radio show. With the drama CD V.A. on that same radio show. That's like getting a slap to the face followed by a punch to the stomach. Then kick you while you're down. :X
Least she managed to pick herself off the ground real quickly there. Some nice development for Futa-Futa.

Kinda wished there was more Rie though. And maybe a ZoT cover. Their debut song was nice though.

Even Kugimiya Rie's relaxed voice is loli! No doubt, queen of loli.

Futaba matured nicely there. These characters are starting to shape well, and it's showing. The only problem I had with this episode: how did Futaba manage to dance so well within a day? A mystery, but yeah I don't really care.

but it was really admirable to watch her overcome that! :)
Also, of course, Rie Kugimiya ♥
Overall, pretty good episode!

Rie Kugimiya this week! Oh men i wonder whose the next one.

Man, never expected the feels and to see how it hurts for a seiyuu not to be chosen from a drama CD to an anime adaptation (and the one who replaced you was your friend, double ouch) but dat development tho.
