WUG!! This is a new monthly manga series that started in May. The first chapter seems to follow the anime more or less, starting from the part where they do the TV stuff. Not sure if we’ll get anything in the way of new story content, but who knows? Also the art is nice. And it’s WUG so you should read it anyway.
It’s Mariko time!
Note that this chapter was originally published last year, and Terashima Yufu actually just made her major debut last month. At any rate I guess I’ll follow the manga and post some of her stuff here too.
Terashima Yufu 1st Single – #ゆーふらいと (#Yu-Flight)
B-Side (Live) – ぜんぜん (Zenzen)
Weird diversion arc ends here. Back to Mariko next!!
The anime has been confirmed to be short episodes, probably around 5 minutes each.
Looks like this series is finally getting tankoubon releases; there’ll also be a new story about Hinami split between the first 2 volumes.
As for the anime, Yurino’s seiyuu has been announced as Matsui Eriko (Isuzu from Log Horizon, Kamiya Nao from Cinderella Girls, Mo~tan from Etotama). There’s also a new key visual… looks okay I guess. Somehow Momona doesn’t look silly enough and I didn’t expect Yurino’s hair to be that dark <.< oh well.
And now for a quick diversion.

Most of them are Ryuusan but there are a bunch of Mariko ones too! For some reason there is only a single Rina one :v
New mini-arc coming up next.
Basically nothing happens in this chapter. Sorry.
In other news, if anyone has access to timely uploads of scans from Comp Ace, please let me know!
For those who are uh… curious… about the stuff in this chapter’s glossary, the idol unit in question is BiS (Brand-new idol Society). They deliberately do controversial stuff like this; their image revolves around taking the ugly side of idols to the extreme.
In other news, more cast info for the Million Doll anime! It defies all of my predictions o_O
