They should have just made this as the TV series and the idol crap as a spin off.

Season 2 please! XD
WUG's journey has just begun!

Maybe an announcement after the 1st Live Tour or at the event on Dec 7? :D

Clever, clever pun. I guess actually meeting WUG-chan at Acen gave me bias. Can't wait to see Miyu as a hawk~

It will most likely be like Puchimas.
And I most certainly hope this is the case.

Would be nice to have some more of WUG.

The WUG looked great in those animal outfits.

O_________________O tbh it wasn't that great. Are they hoping to gain some sales off of this?

WUG didn't sell save for the film.

It looks like Yamakan raided Nina Ichihara's closet and grabbed kigurumi of predators. Idolm@ster needs to step it up, Yamakan is trying to outstage one of your idols and doing a good job at it.

What the hell? I thought that WUG didn't have good reputation :o
I'm looking forward tho I don't think this will be as good as the original anime.

Lol, this looks cute tbh.

Aug 10, 2014 6:12 AM by Stark700

That's a clever pun.

I was expecting the next WUG announcement to be a second season, but this looks amusing.
