Brand New All-Star WUG

Posted by DiGiKerot in Wake Up Girls! at October 9, 2017 on 11:12 pm

If there is one thing you need to know prior to going into the new Wake Up Girls, it’s that Moka is kind of a tiny idol jerk.

If there’s another thing you need know, it’s that Moka ended up replacing Mayushi’s old friend/rival Shiho as the center of I-1 Club when they went head-to-head over the single sales of the Unmei no Megami single and her Team M version outsold Shiho’s Team S (Yes, they really called them Team S and M), causing Shiho to form I-1 affiliate unit Next Storm with a bunch of newbies. Their single was pretty good, a Love Live sub-unit single kind of way, if you’ve not heard it, but in the context of the show, getting away from the somewhat gross and hostile environment of the main I-1 Club ended up doing Shiho the world of good.

The New WUG; Same as the Old WUG. Kinda.

A new PV for the new series of Wake Up, Girls!, which is due to start next month, dropped during the Nico stream today. You should go watch it.

Hackadoll is the Secret Best WUG Anime

Well, maybe not, though most of my exposure to the IP as a whole comes from the fact that I apparently know way too many WUGners.

Hackadoll is kind of a weird one. Anime based upon mobile, Free-to-play games are not an uncommon commodity. There’s money in F2P games, but the issue with all those games is in user turn-over. Flashy adverts attracting niche audiences, particularly ones with fluid disposable income, is kind of an important part of the life-cycle of these things, as they require the attention of a constant stream of new players to sustain themselves, and that’s why things like Rage of Bahamut: Genesis end up existing.

So there’s a new WUG movie PV

Not that there’s a whole lot to say about it, though I do continue to love Yoppi’s radical new hairdo. That, and the return of everyone’s favourite character, Kuniyoshi Ota. Huzzah!

At least, the WUG Wrestling Championship seems to be more real than the WWE is this week.
