Wake Up, Girls!


Wake Up, Girls! is an anime series produced by Ordet and Tatsunoko Production and directed by Yutaka Yamamoto. A film titled Wake Up, Girls! – Seven Idols (Wake Up, Girls! 七人のアイドル Wake Up, Girls! Shichi-nin no Idol) opened in Japan on January 10, 2014, and a television series aired in Japan between January and March 2014.

Green Leaves Entertainment is a tiny production company on the verge of going out of business in Sendai, the biggest city in Japan’s northeastern Tohoku region. The agency once managed the careers of magicians, photo idols, fortune-tellers, and other entertainers, but its last remaining client finally quit. In danger of having zero talent (literally), the president Tange hatches an idea of producing an idol group. On the brash president’s orders, the dissatisfied manager Matsuda heads out to scout raw talent. Matsuda makes a fateful encounter with a certain girl…
Wake Up, Girls! , SEQUEL to the movie “Wake Up, Girls! Shichi-nin no Idol” presents the Green Leaves Entertainment company in pursuit of discovering talent in the form of idols, for selfish, and inspirational views. As explained in the prequel movie, the 7 scouted idols are; Shimada Mayu, Nanase Yoshino, Kikuma Kaya, Hisami Nanami, Katayama Minami, Okamoto Miyuu and Hayashida Airi (As strange as it sounds, they have all been named after their designated voice actors).

In terms of character personality and designs, each character has their own traits and each has their own positives. In the space of 12 episodes, one cannot really expect significant depth for 9 protagonists (including that of Green Leaves Production). Although some of their personalities conflict with each others, it appears there is very little chemistry between them, which is a little strange.
