We are going to be saved? NOOOO!

Though I have to admit that I like the idea of choosing rookies, shows could use more voices. I tend to love music of shows in which Kousaki Satoru takes part...might check it out it in the end.

It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren’t being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP.

The only idol anime I watched was, AKB0048, and that was such a let down for me.
I'll give this one a shot.
Hoping to hear some good voices.

They should do stuff like this more often. Keeps things more interesting.

But why another idol anime? :S

Pass. Looking forward to the DRAMA when it flops, though.

So it's an anime with idols, but I don't think expectations should be anything like iM@S.

It takes place in the Tohoku region, it's going to be about the 2011 earthquake. It's going to play up the tragedy really high. Up to 11 maybe.

Why?

It's Yamakan. Whether you love or hate the guy, for good or bad, he's going to try. In his words, he's going to "save anime".

I couldn't even get to the halfway point in that episode.

He also did Black Rock Shooter, which was very unsatisfying.
The only good thing I found out was that he worked for Kyoani, and did the Haruhi dance sequence.

Someone care to explain to me, how exactly this guy is saving anime?

It's sarcasm. He has a very high opinion of himself, which tends to invite ridicule when he fails.


That makes more sense then.

I enjoyed Lucky Star but it looks like most of his shows are failures.

This anime needs some Yui Ogura love and she can bring Kaori with her too.

iDOLM@STER started the whole idol thing on anime last year, that's not counting those children anime. iM@S was great, but I didn't even bother watching others because I wasn't expecting much of them.

Yutakan Yamakan? No, don't let him direct anything. Even if I haven't seen any of his shows I can already tell things like Fractale are shit.
