I haven’t done an artbook review in a long time. So for this week I’m taking a break from my usual figure posts and we’re gonna take a quick look at the Wake Up, Girls! Visual Collection!
The theme for the next couple of weeks will be “idols” so I’ll try and showcase idol-related goodness. Let’s go WUG-chan!
The Wake Up, Girls! Visual Collection is a 25-paged full-color artbook! The textless illustrations come from many sources such as Blu-ray covers, album colors and other promotional images! I was surprised at how pretty comprehensive it was. I loved the artwork they used for the Blu-ray covers so it’s finally nice to have glossy textless versions.
To be honest I got into WUG a little bit later. When the original key visuals were released I wasn’t sure about the show because the character designs for the girls seem to share similar faces… Later I decided to marathon it after hearing good reviews from my friends and I enjoyed it! (then again, I kinda like most idol shows) I kinda of wish I got into WUG sooner because the voice actresses performed live at last Anime Central.
And don’t worry I-1 Club fans your favorite members get some artwork pieces included too!
Probably my favorite WUG outfits! They’re so cute!
And here’s some more I-1 Club art! These are taken from their singles: Little Challenger and First-Rate Smile!
Not shown are the last few pages feature portraits of all the voice actresses of the WUG girls! And they’re super cute. Now I kinda wish I made the trip to see them live…
The artbook also came with a nice clear poster too (which sadly I forgot to take a photo of)
Well, that was a quick review of the artbook but it’s so pretty that I didn’t want to give away the rest of it. If you’re a fan of WUG this is a definitely a great addition to your collection! (Are there any readers who are WUG fans?)
Tune in next time for hopefully another review! Keeping up with the idol theme I plan to showcase something Cinderella Girls related since the anime is airing this season! Thanks again for reading!
