    I'm thinking one of the main reasons to watch this show is because of the original character designs from SHUFFLE! artist Nishimata Aoi. The other main reason? Check out who's on the seiyuu cast:

    (It's pretty sad if you don't know who she is)
    (Yuki from Suzumiya Haruhi)
    (Mikuru Suzumiya Haruhi, Kaede from SHUFFLE!, Nanami from Soul Link)

    This becomes an instant-watch for those who know these wonderful women and their voice talent and I'm glad to be one. I hope it shapes up to be a great series.

    The problem I have with Nishimata's art is that they all look too similar. But FUCK! I did not expect those two. I just didn't. I can't say whether this is good for me or bad. :lmao

    That's a good enough reason for me. Although hopefully a fansub will be released for this series.

    Good luck, hopefully we get a group(s) that can keep up a good pace with this one. Or at least one at all...


    Yeah they do tend to look similar, but for some of us that's a good thing. I'm a big fan of the stlye so it's all good. And it's definitely a good thing, you need to watch it. :p

    And I hope this series ends up being as good as I'm hoping. As I'm planning on being a frequent customer to this thread. Gotta at least be prominent in some threads.

    Bah, my usual source doesn't have any subgroups listed for this yet. But I'm sure there'll be one or two picking up.

    They look too too much like SHUFFLE! characters. I can already spot Primula and Sia in there. It's their hairstyles.

    Yes, but they look like rehashes. The artist makes like it really is them, which it isn't. >.>

    Even in the other series, they look almost the same.

    No... not a Shuffle ending.... :(

    Shuffle spoiler:
    Spoiler:
    Wanted Sia to be picked.... and I liked the light hearted comedy segments of early on, more than the darker end of the series. Though I expected it to happen from playing the game...

    I just watched episode one, didn't like it very much. Quite a bit of the beginning was just singing, and then after was a dilemma that didn't intrigue me. It got kinda interesting near the end, but then the girl said the corniest line ever
    Spoiler:
    she sings for revenge!? wtf
    . The plot doesn't seem very interesting, but at least episode 2 looks good, so I'll keep watching for now.

    Ok I have a problem with the title!!! Everytime I'm in the forums, I read the title "lovely idol" and it reminds me of "lovely item" from Ouran Host Club!:glomp

    By any chance does Hunny-senpai make a guest appearance in this?

    Ok just watched the "lovely items" and it wasn't all bad. The concert in the beginning was awful but once that was over it became a regular harem. The manager guy is pretty pathetic. Considering he made two succesful girl groups, he still seems to have confidence issues. As well as having a crappy apartment. :huh

    Too bad no Hunny appearance.:cry I swear this show was made for him. So much pink, flowers and overall cuteness.

    ^Ya they looked like robots. They didn't even dance they just stood there for the most part and posed for all the fanboys in the audience.

    I liked Shuffle, so if I follow your oppinions guys, I give it a shot.
    It seems a "lot" of people are ddl it as a torrent. I've got 1299 seeders and 601 leechers, I suppose it's because that's not that bad...
