THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Eh it was okay I guess, animation quality works and the main characters introduced so far has diverse personalities.

Chitose is kinda fun to watch and seems like she has a life goal set already related to being a seiyu. Not bad for a start but not too impressive either imo.

Surprisingly well adapted for a first episode, given Diomedea's poor track record. Glimpses of Watari Wataru's witty writing along with great characterisation can be seen throughout the episode, and the usage of relatively new seiyuus for the main characters fits well with the theme of the series.

Though of a similar genre, this probably isn't going to blossom into something of Shirobako's level, but it definitely has the potential to be one of the better series this season.

Lmao, I enjoyed this first episode a lot. I'm already loving the main girl of this show XD. Definitely feels like a character that Watari Wataru would think of, lol.

That ending was really funny XD.

Times have changed lol. True most seiyuu now have to sing and do live performances like that. Sucks for the girls who dont want to do that. Hell, males have also been singing a lot recently too. The attention to detail is nice. They also mention the need to be careful with what they post in their blogs and stuff. MC keeps questioning wtf is up with the seiyuu industry lol. You gotta love how she instantly disliked the idea of voicing in a LN adaptation. In love with the MC. "Kono kusso gakki chou namai ki" I laughed so fucking hard. "This little bitch is so cheeky" or so. And the legendary "Their LN only sells because of the art." They kind of showed a scene like Shirobako where they are picking a girl and they honestly dgaf who does who as long as the girl is "fresh" and cute lmfao



Basically they said:
Idol+LN+Adaptation = $$$$$ and she gets a role that she didn't even audition for and her manager facepalms lmfao

Well the characters seemed interesting tho some seem to have their heads up a bit to high.
The main characters seems all over the place so not sure what to expect from her, it's clear that she can't handle to position yet tho.
The director and producer also seemed a bit strange and a very carefree.

The only question i got is is this an idol anime?
If it is it's an immediate drop for me.

Decent start to the show. Makes me wonder just how weird the anime industry can be for real.

Chitose is great! Loved her sneaky little monologues and her observations are fun to watch as well.

Looking forward to her new role and how the other Seiyuu's react to it.

Yup, the I think perfect "Onii-chan" figure taking care of her MC newcomer Voice Actor figure. And dealing with the "Cold" Senior and damn snotty younger Voice Actor are totally something not that easy to get used with. But still, it's fun to watch.
"Katta na". LOL

Eh. really. People are liking that girl. Hmm... as for me the kind of character that I would stuffed in a body bag anyway. She's to cocky if I must say.
But still the anime has an interesting premise so I will stick with it. And really feel like they're shitting in the industry. Yeah make fun of ln author and yet even this anime is based on light novel adaptation. X(

This show is awesome, Great start. XD

The small performance in the beginning was really good.

I found all the commentary on the anime industry hilarious
"Why would people make anime that won't sell? I wonder"
"Those people can't draw, produce music nor act, yet they want to be apart of this industry"
"Light Novel anime barely listens to the original author anyway"
Epic XDD
The anime industry truly is weird.

I love Chitose already, She's got quite the personality.

The producer and the music guy make me laugh way too much.
That ending with all three of them getting hyped and laughing was so funny. XD

I really like her personality, a bit on the spoiled side but she was definitely fun to watch. The ending was epic lol. Where all three are laughing and Gojou is all like "what did I get myself into" expression lol. The show does feel like Shirobako since we get an inside look of the seiyuu industry.

Those drawings were hilarious.

Heard some good things about this so jumped in

Isn't the most scintillating or original but is fairly enjoyable I think
Quality is okay so far. MC was cute(a lot), I like her
Some of the script was too exposition-convenient I think, but first episode so I'll not bash it

Hope MC/onee-san does not go too far in to Oregairu edgelord territory, because fuck him
I can like simply bad mouthed guys and gals though so that's okay for me

Another one connected to the anime industry but I doubt it would get to the same level as Shirobako. It got some preaching words about the industry too. I really like the straight way of saying things including the bad ones and it looks like the anime is attacking itself.

Well finally subs are out, pretty interesting so far. Definitely a more cynical take on voice acting and the business in general than I expected, though played to comedic effect. And the girls certainly aren't afraid to show their true characters, warts and all, which is admirable in a sense.

I honestly reminded about last season's most hyped series when i see these lines, but then..

And i just realized this is made by Diomedea.. Idc if the script writer has any connection with it or not, but their attempt to "destroy" Kancolle will surely go well here. "Destroy"-ing LN, that is.

Whoooaa... I love the MC, Chitose. Her expressions are spunky. I like those eyes and the anime really focuses on those eyes for her expressions.
The characters seem to be very interesting especially the seiyuus which have very spunky personalities too.
The animation is very good and the colors used are good as well.
Those laughs by those two guys are so funny to hear. :v
Looking forward to the next episode!

That jab though about the light novel adapations, I bet that's what Wataru felt when Yahari S2 adaptation sucked so bad for some people kek.

Anyway this show just throwing some extreme savage about the industry especially the LN, with a mix of shit-talking like that sweet burn from Momoka to Chitose and I'm loving every single of these shit, more of that please.

Also I'm starting to like Chitose so far especially her monologues, her way of thinking about the industry, and that egg print on her clothes was also cute though

Overall, one of the hidden gems this season

There were a lot of shots fired this episode.
What's wrong with a light novel anyway. I love how they showed a nerdy light novel author and when seyuu don't want to hang out with him was just lol.
Those laughs in the end lol GAhahaha Gahahaha.
MC looks like an arrogant kid honestly, i don't like her at all, but i understand why people do, she is not your typical MC

Anyway good start, i'll be sure to watch it all the way through

I loved the ending with the look on Chitose's brother had. That look on his face was one of "this will not go well for anyone." Now I can't wait to see the next episode.

Apparently the guy behind Oregairu worked on this, and it shows.

Its like a much darker and cynical take on the same idea that Sore ga Seiyuu did. The characters and writing are great. Main girl is like Komachi from Oregairu, both energetic and dark.
