    Outstanding plot and concept
    Unlike Idol M@ster or Love Live , WUG shows the darker and more realistic side of the idol industry. This may be the best anime from this season. I also hope that it can be a turning point for directer Yamakan

    P.S. The movie is the actual first episode, you should watch the movie before watching the series.

    Best Anime of the Season!!!!
    Before i clicked the play button i had the impression this was going to be one of those cheesy comedy harem-without-the-guy idol animes, but i was dead wrong.
    Wake Up, Girls! is done brilliantly with very lovable characters, a realistic setting and plot, and outstanding performance(s) already closely rivaling Love Live and Idol M@sters with just the first episode! It is definitely worth a watch, ...

    One of the few Idol anime I can marathon
    I'm not really a fan of idol anime do to the lack of realism in it. However, Wake Up, Girls is able to be believable all while being interesting. People who may hate on the series see it as a threat to their favorite Idol shows… The characters I think are well mixed so you won't get an anime where it seems like all the characters are similar. There are 7 total girls my favorite being ...

    Was Definitely Shocked
    I decided to start watching to blow some time. I realized after about 10 minutes into the movie (yes, the movie is first), that this was going to be a lot better than I had originally thought it would. It has realistic drama in it from the start, and I am already getting dem feels.

    Had some nice Easter eggs in it so far,

    Amazingly high quality anime.
    I am not really interested in Japanese idols. I didn't like Idolmaster at all. But this anime, at least after EP1, is amazingly well animated (performance scene). Music is good. Story is good. I know no one is watching this one, but I love it, I didn't like the previous shows by this director (yamamoto) except Haruhi, but this will be perhaps the best show by him.

    This Once Caught Me By Surprise!
    With a limited schedule, I have to select only a few shows from each season to watch based on the synopsis. I originally passed on this one because I expected this to be a typical rising group series where the group has to overcome hurdles and each character gets an episode to flash back for character development. I was wrong. After seing comments about the show I decided to make the time to watch ...

    An idol anime, might make you cheer for them?
    Its my first anime about Idols so i have no basis for its genre? to really give so here is my thoughts.
    Its down to earth about forming the group and struggling in the harsh competitive world of idols. Each character has her own traits and quirks and to be a solid group they will have to find something to unify them as both the group and as individuals. It has some harsh realities of what might ...

    An Idol Singing show that's slightly different, yet pretty good.
    There are namely two elements that make up a pop singer – 1) you need to have a really good song everyone likes (that’s the most important) and 2) have good looks (not as important as the first, but it’s just as much nonetheless). Fans can go for one, the other, or both. Famous performers throughout history have at least one of those elements, while there are those who managed to attain both – ...

    For those like me out there...
    I've admittedly usually avoided idol anime, just of the fact I've assumed they were for women...Reluctantly watched this and was pleasantly surpirised. This is such an overused phrase but, "the struggle is real" with these girls. The situation, the resolution, everything felt pretty genuine. Like in life things might not always get wrapped up in a nice neat little package, but you must perservere ...

    This show will have you hooked!
    Great storyline, premise, and drama. One of the better slice-of-life anime I've seen. All of the characters are so unique and likeable. You'll get attached soon enough. The storyline is well paced and realistic, which I think is a trait that gives the show a lot of substance!
