... Dang it, now I feel like translating that.

Million Doll, the popular web comic distributed and serialized through the free app Ganma! is getting a anime adaptation, planned for July. It follows the local idol Itorio in Itoshima, Fukuoka prefecture, and a shut-in idol otaku blogger known as Suuko. Asahi Production will be handling the animation. The general open seiyuu auditions, and all the events done by performers for the anime from April to September will be held at the Akiba Cultures Theater.

Missing a few things in that translation, but more or less. As for that website...

ひきこもりのアイドルオタク「すう子」は、1つだけ特技を持っている。 それは、ブログの力で女性アイドルの人気に火を付けること。 すう子は福岡県糸島市の地方アイドル「イトリオ」に目を付けて売り出そうとするが、 アイドル現場のカリスマ「リュウサン」と地下アイドル「マリ子」の存在が立ちはだかる! 業界で話題の「ミリオンドール」は、アイドルオタクである筆者藍が描く、リアルすぎるアイドル群像マンガ。オタク用語集もついてるよ。

Suuko, a hopeless shut-in of an idol otaku, only has one thing he's good at - using the power of his blog take any female idol, and light her popularity on fire. When he sees a local idol out in Itoshima, Fukuoka going by the stage name Itorio, he gets it in his mind that she could really make it. But then there are two other idols whose mere presence gets in the way - the charismatic, live performer Ryuusan, and the underground performer Mariko. Drawn by Ai (or Ran, depending on which reading is used), Million Doll is an all too realistic idol manga that's got everyone talking. Now with an otaku vocabulary glossary!

I have never saw a Idol anime, yet the plot of a girl boosting another girl on their carrier as idol could be somewhat unexpected(More if its by self sacrifice), If this story is set like theatrical drama, I am in.

The first episode had some nice moments and I still really like the concept but, man, the quality was all over the map. The CGI was just awful. I was really looking forward to this one and came away a little disappointed. Hopefully it improves soon.

Episode 1 is now up.

Episode 1

Suko may be a shut-in, but she does know how to make others famous. Her blogging skills are a sight to behold seeing that Itorio is starting to get the attention it deserves. That's a solid way to start things off. And then there's Ryuusan who figures to be a pretty annoying guy. That omake scene at the end is a nice way to finish off this short as well.

I didn't expect this to be a short... But it looks pretty good anyways, especially if they can sort out the animation problems.

Nice shout out to CookPad too. (A hugely popular user driven recipe site in Japan, also available in English. Less useful than it used to be though since it's moved to Pinterest style interface rather than a category interface.)

Episode 1:

Wow there are a lot of shorts this season or is that just me? Anyways. Nice concept if done right but so far the only thing that makes this unique from the other idol animes is that Suko can make people famous over twitter.

The CGI was horrible, please never do it again. But the character designs were pretty nice. But not too bad for a short. Requires very little commitment for me so I will see how this turns out.

Well, I've still got a lot more anime to check out first episodes of, but so far this sits in my "worst of Summer" slot.

As Swaggercandy said, the CGI was horrible. And when there wasn't CGI, there was almost no animation at all. That's not in itself a problem--I've seen some shows done quite effectively with minimal animation--but it just looked downright shoddy here. And the story itself holds no appeal for me. I doubt I'll even bother with episode 2.

It wasn't that bad.

Let's just forget the CGI scene never happened.

Ugh. Why... WHY DOES THE ANIMATION HAVE TO--- UGH.

I understand low budget but this is ridiculous. The over reliance on still shots... THAT CGI NIGHTMARE WTF.

What makes it so frustrating is that this is actually off to a decent start. I really dig the concept and I love how they seem to be digging a bit deeper into the Idol subculture than I've seen other Idol anime do. Especially with the omake at the end explaining commonly used terms.There's real potential here but the absolutely abysmal animation is going to send those who isn't really invested in the concept running for the hills.

If they touch on the subject of oshimen next episode to shed a little more light on why DD are looked down upon, this show will have me hook, line, and sinker.
