“Wake Up, Girls! Shin Shou” TV Anime Announced

A continuation of the idol anime, Wake Up, Girls!, has been announced for 2017! Wake Up Girls! Shin Shou will follow the original members of the band, as well as include some new characters. An audition will be held between December 11 and January 16 to cast the voices for the three new characters.

Those who pass the first entry audition period will be narrowed down through a second screening held between February 4 and February 25. The final cast screening will be on March 11 in Tokyo. The voice actresses for the 7 original band members will be returning for this series.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis for Wake Up, Girls! as:

“On Christmas 2013, the band Wake Up, Girls plays their debut song to a small audience without much fanfare. After the concert, the group’s manager takes off with the money, leaving Green Leaves Entertainment on the verge of closure and the band without a future.

Despite this tumultuous beginning, the girls get a second chance, thanks to a mysterious benefactor and a shady business proposal. From here it’s a rocky climb to the top, but it’s a climb the girls are ready to make. Wake Up, Girls! follows the internal and external struggles of being a small-time idol girl band, from finding and accepting gigs to competing in popularity against other pop bands.

Through the band, the girls come to accept their pasts and become more certain about their futures. Faced with increasing stakes and popularity, each of the band’s seven members must find the strength and courage inside herself to give her all to the band.”

You can find the videos for the anime and audition, along with some visuals, after the break!

Preorders Open for “Pop Team Epic” Nendoroids

Ever seen these two girls? If you haven’t, they’re from a popular 4-panel manga series by Bkub Okawa titled Poputepipikku or Pop Team Epic in English. The series is full of anime/manga/video game references, and is very bizarre and hard to describe. It follows the antics of two high school girls named Popuko and Pipimi. Popuko is short and very easily angered, while Pipimi is taller and quite calm.

The Popuko Nendoroid is approximately 70mm tall (about 2.8 inches) and the Pipimi one is 110mm tall (about 4.3 inches). They can both be preordered through the Good Smile Company Online Shop: Popuko for 4,500 yen (roughly $39.05) and Pipimi for 4,200 yen (roughly $36.45) including tax.

Preorders end on January 12 and they will both be released in June 2017.
