    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 [email protected] with just the first episode! It is definitely worth a watch, ...

    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.

    Outstanding plot and concept
    Unlike Idol [email protected] 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.

    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!

    *Update with New Chapter* This is my favorite show of the season
    ***Update after watching latest season, "Wake Up, Girls! New Chapter."***

    Wake Up, Girls! New Chapter is such a let down. I can get by with the new character design, but the writing is terrible. Also, they went way overboard with cheap animation. So many stills that fill dialog and scenes of people talking have just mouth animation. Zero facial animations. This is one of the worst story and ...

    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 ...

    Wake Up, Girls! Love it.
    I know it’s too soon to say that this is a good show. However I can tell you that as of four episodes, the comedy and the story of how those 7 Girls came to start an idol group is awesome. The crazy things they make them go through are so funny. I think most people will really enjoy this show 9.5 out of 10 so far. ....

    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 – ...

    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 ...
