The Idol Trend Gets Absurd

There are some things in life that just make me go “HUH?!” and Mamiko Noto and Ai Shimizu being asked to write scripts for Touka Gettan is one of them. 

These two have zero writing credits under their belts and the only logical reason I can see for this decision is that they are Popular Singer/Idol Seiyuu and this is yet another Multi-Talented Idol gimmick from an industry that is full of them lately.  Touka Gettan is already suffering greatly from a rough start to the anime, delays in launching the game followed by the need to patch it excessively and now this gimmick threatens (On top of the reverse airing gimmick) to do more harm to the animes scripting than good.  I hope they have a ghost writer handy or some sort of supervisor to watch over their every letter because if people thought Chiaki Morosawa (Directors Wife/Gundam Seed Destiny Script Writer), who actually did have some brief writing experience was bad, and that Manabi Straight’s animators directing the show ultimately made the show less than the sum of it’s parts, than this is a approaching a whole new level of risk.
