Trigger is getting a spinoff as a "YouTube Original". Glad to see these tech companies everyone's afraid of putting their money into the good stuff (idols) rather than the post-apocalyptic action sludge that Westerners like.

.... still can't process how so many people like this more than SolidS, Growth, and LagPo, but then again, no one ever said anime fans were immune to the whole Taylor Swift/ One Direction/ etc. phenomenon. ...except anime fans themselves, that is.

Also more big news!

Kamikaze Douga (aka the studio that animated the CGI Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure openings) is going to animate the opening for the IDOLiSH7 anime!

They previously animated the music video for RESTART POiNTER

I absolutely looooooooooove the animation style for Restart Pointer. I'm usually not a fan of CG but it was so well animated and colourful that it was really enjoyable to watch! I can't wait to hear what kind of song the opening will sound based on Riku's ~dramatic~ back shot. I also wonder what kind of ending song the anime will have - there's a loooooooooot to look forward too soon and I'm hyped!

I'm especially looking forward to see how they tackle the other songs that didn't get animated like GOOD NIGHT AWESOME and THE FUNKY UNIVERSE. THE FUNKY UNIVERSE is my favourite song from part 1 so I'll probably cry if it gets animated.

I just have a lot of love for this series and its characters and the staff behind the series share so much love and dedication for it as well.

I love TRIGGER and I'm a big fan of The Radiant Glory so I'm very excited to finally see that animated. I'm sure from the PV it's gonna be gorgeous. I'm curious what the song Tenn was singing is!

The opening for the anime is finally here!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lOV0nYe3W0&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=BandaiVisual

Though, the video is only going to remain online until January 8th so be sure to watch it as much as you can! The opening is animated by the same studio that produced the MV for RESTART POiNTER! Also another little tid bit is that their costumes in the opening are based on their outfits in the upcoming IDOLiSH7 PS Vita game, "IDOLiSH7 Twelve Fantasia"!

Since they dropped this opening, in the mobile game you can roll in a new gacha that has UR cards of their outfits and nnnnnng I want one so bad.

Did Crunchyroll give up on this anime? The newest episode already aired in Japan and yet they don't even have a placeholder for the next episode...

The show resumes today with episode 3. It will go up in just over an hour as previously announced. Unfortunately CR did away with placeholder boxes for some reason.

I noticed that they no longer have time placeholders for the newest episodes, but they still have placeholders for days. I can see in my feed that "A place further than the universe" and "Evil or live" new episodes are coming on Tuesday. It would have been nice to at least know the day, since they have it for other anime. They also didn't say anything about it on their twitter.

Also, the Tuesday episodes mentioned are wrong. They are stating that episode 1 of "a place further than the universe" and episode 12 of "Evil or live" are coming on Tuesday. But those have already been published.

If any of developers / staff is reading this - please, at least put "+1" in your code in the episode number bellow the screenshot. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to make that change in the code.

Lol, idols having magical girl franchise posters in their rooms. I also hope the pacing picks up a bit.

Episode 3

These boys are now in the door, but big challenges await them. So to start things off, the boys are all going to be living together in a dorm, and there's some rearranging to do as Tsumugi just threw them together without picking a center idol. Riku volunteered to be the guy and group unity is assured, but not everybody is on the same page, especially Nagi as he's more concerned about having his fill of Magical Kokona.
So for now they aren't performing until Trigger's concert happens, all while MItsuki is trying to throw away Nagi's Magical Kokona merchandise away, but in the end everybody decided to watch it and got into the show during their down time. Seeing that these boys have so many kinks to work out in order to stand a chance against Trigger that it's good that they took a step back and focus on their chemistry before anything.

Note to self: Don't eat food and watch this at the same time because you won't be able to stop grinning.

Honestly, watching the boys interact with each other just as friends (as opposed to groupmates) and relaxing together was just so fun to watch! It really gave them time to flesh out their personalities and find out what kind of people they were. Also, Tsumugi's facial expressions are just so cute. And they somehow managed to make the girls in the audience look like they were straight out of a moe anime as well (read: they were really cute).

I've listened to the opening song so many times I've lost track tbh I love it way too much

Next episode is (hopefully) Trigger's concert and OH BOY am I looking forward to it! This was the part of the story that got me absolutely hooked to the game, and what made me realise this wasn't just your typical idol game.

Episode 4

The boys are still under orders to not even practice, and it's wearing on them. And then on the day of Trigger's concert, Nagi and Tamaki go missing, while Yamato goes out to get them. Along the way, they find Tenn and he's not feeling well, and he is Riku's twin brother. So after being carried to the venue, Tenn is all ready to go, and it was a hit. After the concert, Riku's determination to sing is renewed, and now they can sing and dance again. It's strange how things are connected.

This is officially ten times better than UtaPri. But JFC I hate the creepy 3d Animation...like what they did for Love Live whenever the girls did a performance.

The music's pretty good but...*small voice* I like Trigger's music better so far...

OH SHIT TRIGGERS NEW SONG IM SCREAMING (I lowkey expected it because I logged into the before watching the anime and they were like 'so uh trigger has a new song and you can play it from the 17th' but I'm still screaming tbh)

Anyway, this was pretty much as I expected it to be! I remember that moment when they said that Riku & Tenn were twins and I just kinda thought to myself 'well, I wonder where this will go from here'. I was just kinda shocked because it it felt like it literally came out from nowhere, but watching the anime, you can see that the hints are kinda there lol (or well there were hints that Riku knew Tenn).
I remember at some point kinda disliking Tenn anyone who hurts my son Riku is an enemy but you've gotta admire his resolve to get his work done (well I do, anyway) and his work ethic.
Also Trigger had matching earpieces!! (it's not very obvious with Gaku because his hair is almost the same color as his earpiece)

Idk, I kinda found that really cool. There were a lot of little visual elements that weren't in the game (like the dance i7 were doing at the end & Tenn lying down) that honestly make me really happy because I feel like they're putting a lot of detail and love into these scenes (ok that sounded weird it is there job after all).

Also, this face saved my life

The "Heavenly Visitor" ED was great! Nice it was all Trigger this episode. Hope there will be enough new Trigger material during the season for another full CD. Looking forward to it.

The brother rivalry is turning prickly.
