This has been bothering me for a while so i might as well ask it. I may have missed it at some point so if i'm wrong, feel free to correct me. Thank you.

It has to do with OP, mainly (and only) Yoshino herself. She's credited as Nanase Ayano, although isn't it supposed to be Nanase Yoshino?

I've never been a fan of I-1 Club, but that song at the start... It was actually pretty good, despite its short length. Also, this episode (5) was actually great to watch, so thumbs up for this.

True. Each of the WUG! member is named by their VA, but only the first name. As for Run Girls, Run (that gets formed soon) they're named by their last name.

So Ep 7 was a live action episode? Is that why it’s not on? Due to some licensing snafu?

Actually, there's another episode that aired today that was the true finale.

I wonder if CR will stream it.

Maan, this series/franchise deserves so much better.

I'll miss it, but if it can come back as a stronger production, then I will be happy.

Episode 13 (Finale)

It's finally the day for Wake up, Girls final concert tour, but not only that there are other concerts being held at the same time. Their junior's Run Girl, Run go first and being nervous they mess up but get over it and do a good job on their first performance. Than it's time for Wake up, Girls and they start with 7 Girls war and end it with their new song Polaris. During their new song the weather messes with the equipment and their Mic's don't work, so they jump into the crowd and perform in the crowd. Meanwhile I-1 center is revealed to be Moka and a special presentation is shown and it's footage of all the idols performing in Sendai. The president of I-1 announces a new idol festival and the next day WUG is surprised that Moka stepped down as center and will settle things in the Idol Festival. WUG and their Juniors are going to compete in the Idol Festival as rivals.


Final Thoughts

New Chapter takes place two years after the events of Beyond the Bottom during a idol recession. The season pretty much is about WUG getting jobs in the media to make a name for their group. They get jobs as hosts on tv, star in tv drama and even photo shoots. Not only that but we are introduced to three new characters Hayashi Ayumi, Morishima Otome, and Atsugi Itsuka who are be fans of WUG and later become idols themselves.

When it came to New Chapter the one thing I had a problem with was of course the new animation they used. It's weird how they went from the animation they used in the first season and films to this. Not only that bad CGI as it looked really slow that it made me think there was lag. The problems didn't stop there as in two episodes they used still frames of building while the girls talked just, so they wouldn't have to animate them. It's good that the rest of the season wasn't like that but that still ruined those episode for me.

The best thing about New Chapter had to be the music as we 7 Girls for the opening and Shizuku no Kanmuri for the ending song. Between the two 7 Girls was my favorite and the opening did a good job as we see the WUG perform to the new song. We also get to hear songs from other idol groups like I-1 and Next Storm. For the last episode they go all out as we hear Run Girl, Run first song and than WUG sings all their songs.

In all the Wake Up, Girls: New Chapter could have been a better sequel if it wasn't for the animation and poor story. With the way things ended there could be another film in works or even another season? Well what ever is next hope they improve on their mistakes because Wake Up, Girls can definitely compete with other idol shows if done right.

7/10

I love WUG. I'm gonna miss it. If this series had better animation, it would be a lot more popular without a doubt. It has such a cute story.

And so it ends. The outfits as well as the song RGR had was cool. Polaris (song) sang by WUG! was also great.

Despite the animation, it was fun. Going to miss it. Hopefully there's more of because, RGR. They deserve more.

"This story is only the beginning!" ? Hmm...
