The Rise of Otaku Chapter 209
Chapter 209 Finish Filming
Wu Yifans performance was beyond anyones comprehension. After all, it was only a variety show, the reward for the winning was only a mere 5,000 Moe Coins, plus a golden idol cup. With the first-tier idols earning ability, it was impossible for them to ruin their own image for such a little reward.
Before, Wu Yifans image was not bad, but today, this despicable image really made him lose a lot of points. On the scene, a commotion began to spread among Wu Yifans fans. Apart from some die-hard fans, some people had already taken off their fan clothes and decided to stop supporting him. Then two groups had an intense quarrel, which almost turned into a fierce fight.
It was very clear that he was going to lose a lot of fans today, even the amateur Zhou Yu could also see it, let alone the professional agent. But why would they allow him to do such a thing? Turning around to look at Wu Yifans agent, not only did he not show a bit of anxiety and restlessness, but he even clapped his hands on the side. It made Zhou Yu even more confused.
So Zhou Yu went to find Xia Huan, trying to get answers from him.

"Wu Yifan used to be an upright idol. Normally, he wouldnt do something like this." Xia Huan explained. "However, since it indeed appeared, it could only explain one thing, Wu Yifan planned to change his style. It is also possible that it was arranged by his agency, and it could also be that something has happened to him that it changed him. The status of an idol is not always stable, so sometimes an agency has to rebrand them accordingly."
Xia Huans speculation had some points, and soon Wu Yifans agent explained everything.
When this shooting was over and everyone was waiting for the last shooting in the break room, Wu Yifans agent came with a gift and an apology.
"Im so sorry, just a little gift, I hope you all will like it."
The gift that the agent brought was "Starlight Steamed Bun Set Meal". Although the set meals appearance was simple, the ingredients inside those buns were absolutely carefully selected top-class ingredients. Not only was it the supreme quality, but the daily selling limit was only 1000 buns, ordinary people could not buy it even if they had money. It seemed that he was already prepared to apologize.
Wu Yifan who followed behind the agent also had a guilty look, and he sincerely apologized to everyone one by one. He no longer had that arrogant look on his face at all. From the look of sincerity, it did not seem like he was pretending it; at least, Mr. Perfect expressed his forgiveness on the spot.
"Yifan, what exactly happened that it made you change so much?"
It seemed that everyone knew that what he did in the maze wasnt normal. After all, they were all working in the entertainment circle, so they knew clearly what was normal and what was not. Especially in the idols image-building, once youve built your image, there is a great risk if you want to change it again. Unless you have to, otherwise, no one would be stupid enough to do so.
Wu Yifan still lowered his head and didnt say anything, but his agent sighed and said, "sigh, its a long story. Our Yifan encountered a group of Troll Fans, and was forced to put on the Morally Corrupted label. His original image couldnt be used anymore, so we could only seek the opportunity to rebrand him. This show has given us the best opportunity. So we have no choice but to do this. Please forgive us."
Label items Morally Corrupted; once the label was put on, the idol basically could only play the role of bad guys, if the idol was not careful and encountered the Cancerous Fans or the NTR Fans, basically this idols idol career would be over. Even if the idol was not willing to give up, probably they could only be transferred to the fallen city.
The world of idols was also very cruel.

Seeing Wu Yifans pitiful look, Zhou Yu couldnt help but feel fortunate that little Muli and Bai Mo didnt have to go outside and join other companies, there were too many dangers.
Finally, Wu Yifans agent talked to Zhou Yu. It didnt matter if he betrayed his teammates in the middle of the show, but if the producer disliked that performance, Wu Yifans scenes might be cut out, then the transition plan would fail, so he had to get the Producers understanding.
Seeing Xia Huan gulping down the "Star Light Steamed Bun set meal", which said to be the delicacy that only kings were qualified to eat, Zhou Yu was drooling very hard. However, even if some of the buns were given to him, he wouldnt be able to taste anything because those Buns were simply too small. In the end, he gave all his buns to Firefly, who almost couldnt stop herself from snatching the buns.
"Its okay for me. Variety shows are not normal animations. Good doesnt necessarily win over evil, nor does it necessarily win in the end. It is actually not bad for a reality show."
Zhou Yu didnt mind it. In fact, he was a little tired of people, who had a saint-like heart, like Mr. Perfect. Xia Huan also thought the same, after all, he was also from a management company, he understood Wu Yifans situation. But the main problem was the producer Oba. If he didnt say yes, no matter how much they discussed, it would still be useless.
Oba was very arrogant. He just stayed in his hut inside the forest and left the shooting task to the director Ling Daoran. He wanted to wait until the end of the shooting to come out for editing. Poor Wu Yifan and his agent could only wait outside the hut. But looking at the tightly closed door, it seemed like they would need to wait for quite a while.
The shooting of the final scene was delayed for a long time. Only until the next afternoon did Oba come out of his hut and said, "variety shows are meant to be full of uncertainty, not to mention this type of challenging reality-variety shows. There is a precedent for the strong to lose and the weak to win, so I can live with that. But your act of concealing the true state of your idol is a breach of contract, and you will need to go to the Starlight idol committee to explain yourselves later."
Obas decision was to keep Wu Yifans scene, but the principle could not be lost, as for how the starlight idol committee would punish Wu Yifan, he would not intervene in that matter.
Wu Yifan and his agent all accepted the decision, as long as after the show was released, they could successfully rebrand Wu Yifan, all the cost was worth it.
The last scene was then continued as usual.
After the "coward" got into the last room, he no longer hid his true ability. He, who was as smart as Mr. Perfect, had an incredible battle with the maze master at the end. Thus, an evil character, who played a pig to eat tiger, was born.
No one knew how Wu Yifans image transformation path would be after the program was broadcasted. But this was not Zhou Yus concern. What he needed to worry about was whether the audiences from the real world accept this kind of show or not.
Zhou Fu had contacted several video sites and television stations to talk about the partnerships already.
Although Zhou Yus reputation was very big, and there was such a famous producer Mu Zi willing to be the middleman, the animation variety show was still a very new concept, people still had a hard time to accept it immediately. Almost everyone said that they had to check the footage first before they could actually make any decisions.
Therefore, Zhou Fu has been praying to God repeatedly recently that the sample must be done well.
Today, Zhou Yu, who had shut himself in the studio for a long time, finally came out.
