How did everyone enjoy the anime? I forgot how the final performance of the 2011 anime went but it seemed like this one had a lot of still frames and not a lot of animation.
Also, Producer confirmed for prince.
Which episode was your favorite?
Ep 9 was my favorite because I love these three.
It was pretty shitty.
I'm glad this shit is over and can't wait for the ML anime.
>Get MC spot taken by some genki slut and another slut who does enjo kosai
>How does all these shit idols have more talent than me when I put more effort into this shit.
Had a bigger cast than the last one which is bad because it barely gives any developement to any of the characters. I thought the evil buisness woman was a good idea since she added conflict but in the end she always loses. Focusing the last arc on the most generic character of the show was pretty bad too.
I'm happy Uzuki made a friend.
>it seemed like this one had a lot of still frames
No kidding. Either this shit had a low budget to work with or it was rushed. I didn't really enjoy the second cour anyhow. After the first season of Mio drama, I just wanted to see my favorite idols enjoy themselves, and not having to go through their drama each episode.
Speaking of the first cour, I enjoyed how Mio reacted to the lack of a crowd at her first concert. It honestly had me shaking my head. After that arc, I wanted to see more idol-suffering. Besides Uzuki's bit, the entire second part was not just interesting.
And about the last episode..
>idols standing still and only their mouths moving
Fucking why??? Burn in hell, A-1. It's the LAST episode! At least put some effort into this shit.
I love Sachiko, so I'd say that episode. And episodes 1-5. Bedhair Uzuki makes me erect.
Shit, how could I not include that one too? I actually liked Darina in that episode.
Yeah I just realized that I contradicted myself. I meant to say something along the lines of wanting to watch my favorite idols "react to the highest and lowest degrees of emotion."
2011 had better concerts. But it kind of felt that the show didn't exactly know what direction it wanted to take. Not to mention it had the legendarily shitty Hibiki episode.
CG had glorious A-1 stills magic working for it. But it overall felt more tightly written. I found myself enjoying alot of things in CG more.
So is this shot supposed to imply romance or something?
I'm really surprised that they put literally no romantic undertones in the show aside from this.
Even 765 Pro had Miki lusting over Producer's dick.
Its called playing safe to avoid "certain" otaku from flipping out
Ironically, the fanart of Idol x Producer is more numerous compared to the original
Of course he marries Cinderella. But this an idol anime, where TakeP plays both carriage, fairy godmother and prince to his Project
>confessing your feelings to Producer near Rin
Big mistake, Dookie. Big mistake.
You better call the police to protect your house, because a certain someone is going to try to sneak into your house and slit your throat tonight while you sleep.
Darn, over a month away
Anyways, I actually warmed up to the series even though everyone else I know didn't. But I guess they can't handle drama
There should be a mega link somewhere in the archives.
I wanted to see how the others are recruited
When does the manga start? And who's the mangaka?
Why would you tie a ribbon from your neck to your hand. This just seems like a horrible idea
Natsuki's episode saved the second half for me
there's a ton of normal looking producer's in the background in some episodes.
Its the personality that makes a person moe
That episode was so fun.
Trying to pick this up again after holding it off since it started. Is the montage thing really common?
It's hard to get the feeling of "We worked hard for this!" When I get a song and a lot of stills of them doing practice.
English you say. It won't be rock for very long.
>No more animated Rin ever
I feel like dying here
All the episodes focusing on Anya.
There are some OVAs coming out and we might get a movie or something.
One of her new friends is a mute though.
I'm really glad Uzuki found someone as boring as she is so to perform with so she won't be slowing Rin down.
All the breaks ruined it for me.
If I watched it after it aired Im sure I would like it a lot more but the experience got fucked up and I am not even talking about the split cour.
I got Anya, Minami, and Ranko so I can't complain too much.
Uzuki and Miho mesh so well together.
Oh, don't be such a sad panda. It's as easy as bouncing a booru.
They wanted things to be different so it makes sense to have them as the big sisters to their respective units
But just thinking about her whispering lewdly into your ear about how she's going to make you Happy Happy~ with her autistic speech turns me on like no other. You just need more time with it.
Her nyan speech is easy to get used to since she just added ~nyaa to every sentence.
Kirari is actually squeaking at every single words that I wanted to rip her throats so badly.
I'm sorry you can't appreciate her cuteness.
I can't wait for more TakeP fan material with other idols. He can play off pretty well with just about any of them.
that was really too much for me
Even if the Producer turns out to be a Qt3.14 Female Producer?
>Is the best producer and the best girl in her respective series
I didn't see this in the archives so here's some translations.
Deremasu Episode 22 Rin/Chihiro Manga
Would you like me to accompany you to the film site?
I guess I wouldn't mind.
Speaking of which, ｍy apologies, Senkawa-san. The plans...
Of course, it's no trouble at all.
I'll be borrowing MY Producer for a bit.
Don't worry about it.
P-san is ONLY doing it for work, after all
>CG manga to amp up the producerlust if it ends up being a side story thing of the anime, like the 2011 anime did.
Amen. I know I probably will get disappointed but I just can't help but hoping for it.
I'm still impressed they decided to made it almost crystal clear that Haruka has a crush on P and even crazier, there's a potential male love interest for Ami that's NOT Producer (even though he's probably just appeared in Ami's arc).
Mana the absolute madman.
Oh god, episode 26 better give us some hints of Rin lusting for Producer.
It's gonna be so good.
It's gonna happen. On the last BD. Mark my words.
Do you really think it'll end like that?
Without a fanservice episode with all the girls in bikinis and Uzuki showing off her Uzukis and Mio playing beach volleyball with the local Mexican immigrants?
OVAs are confirmed to come along.
Whether it's it's own complete miniseries, or an extra episode 26 with the last BD volume just like with the 2011 anime, it's still not confirmed.
Either way, it's most likely the latter.
Even then, I didn't think they would continue to push Haruka's crush even more in the NoMake+. That one was hilarious.
>Mio playing beach volleyball with the local Mexican immigrants?
Not if Producer has anything to say about it.
Why is Natsuki such pure sex?
Hopefully its the silliness of the 5komas now that everyone is free to make any unit
But still have TakeP as one of the straightman
Is there actually a reason Nana and Natsuki were slowly added to main CG group?
Supplements in the wake of Anastasia and Rin being part of Krone?
Good chemistry. Same reason Ranko performed with Koume. Essentially, when the girls learn that Rin and Anya didn't join Krone just to advance their careers but to shine brighter as idols, they realized they wanted to shine brighter too. Part of how they improved was challenging themselves as well as breaking past boundaries. Asterisk was a two-girl unit but there's no issue shoving Natsuki and Nana in. The two don't disturb the balance of cute and rock, and it's a new experience for all of them. Rin and Anya joining Krone wasn't taking them out of the cinderella project either. Mishiro just wouldn't let them do non-Krone stuff for the Autumn Festival because it was Krone's debut and it'd weaken the brand she wanted to establish with them as the face of the company if they performed outside of Krone at the event. There's no issue with them participating in both Krone and Cinderella Project stuff in the Winter Ball.
For much of the winter ball, most of them were performing with different groups than usual. Getting them out of their comfort zone of their assigned units helps them develop. Their units were helpful at first to give them a base to develop on and debut on but it's also holding them back if they can't think or act outside of it.
But they aren't part of the final dance and served as replacements for the Autumn concert
In a way they are both tied to Miku and Riina but aren't that impact for the other 12
So its just part of the general idea to promote the "expanding your horizons" thing the season is about
After this is over, let's get something good to eat.
Could I get a strawberry pa---
Parfait? My, Arisu-chan's so cute.
Oh... I'd like the same thing too...
Wait. Does this mean I have to order the same?
I want to see Mika's reaction when she's in uni and hears that Rika's already lost her virginity.
Look at the hair, Mika dropped that already. It's more like she hasn't dropped the gyaru stereotype of "Man, I'm so tired of getting sex all the time which is why I value our special-nothings more".
The comic says she's close to the P but not getting any.
So I heard you want a Idol Mecha Anime.
All of you would be taking your lessons after this.
Second Batch of CP
Fufu Looks like everyone's happily doing their best.
Fufu I brought you some snacks,
Fufu Getting nervous before your performance?
Excuse me, Shibuya-san but why are you always coming here everyday?
Huh? But, Mika used to drop by very often too before, right?
If you really want, there are still a few season 1 fanart that remain untypesetted, I believe.
Although. I think their translations are gone.

It's all so clear
That card is blue, though.
Who's talking about the card's color?
>Rin is the new Mika
I wonder if they'll show the new girls
I don't usually mind drama, but that was very shitty drama
Only Rin and Anya handled their problems in the satisfactory way, and maybe Riina and Miku, but one of them was too gay for my tastes
No one cares about your shitty pixiv image
Left or right?
Yeah, thanks for the warning but those panties are coming off, whether you like it or not.
loli tummy and loli armpits
U-Umm... Minami-san, Anya-chan.
[ What is it? ]
What's the matter, Ranko-chan?
I-I was waiting for a chance to take a picture of you two together.
You won't mind me taking one?
Why are you two expecting at Miku to say "Ranko-chan's so cute" any moment now?
What are you, her parents? A doting ones at that.
It's a shame Shino didn't even get a cameo.
Maybe they'll put her in Starlight Stage someday.
>cakefags think it's cake hour
I actually like Yuri and ship Idolmasters in spite of the Producer.
Mugino on the other hand is a shitposter and unwanted trash on both /a/, /u/ and anywhere else.
Anything that makes it mad must be good.
As long as no one's engaging in bad stuff like "NG is NG", just take it all in jest
Ritsuko is fine too. That`s bad that we don`t have sweet glasses girl like Ritsuko in the CG.
Makinon is a very sweet girl provided that you ignore the fact that she violates privacy laws for shits and giggles.
Also, if you're defining Ritsuko to be sweet, you might as well refer to Tokiko, Eri or even fucking Leon as sweet while you're at it.
>Clip show instead of NG performance
>Get halfway through actually showing the last performance then reverting to a Montage
Why does CG hate idol performances?
Who am I kidding, it's Aniplex being cheap as always
She already has though
Just unlucky at certain moments
Unless you're not reading the title of this page, not aware this is an iM@S thread (not an idol anime generals), or just trying to incite a war between fanbases, I don't think it's that confusing. On a Love Live thread, LL = Love Live, SS = Sunshine, Rin = Cat, Kotori = Burd; On an iM@S thread, LL = Love Laika, SS = Starlight Stage, Rin = EK, member of NG and TP, Kotori = OL.
Then again, that's just me who know people on both sides. It also helps that
I have a a/m/igo who uses F91 to Hibiki (not to Azusa).
>TakeP entered the Anzu route.jpg
So this is a bad end right?
CG WAS ABSOLUTE SHIT, I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY TAINTED THE GREAT NAME OF 765 PRODUCTS WITH THIS GARBAGE
WHEN IS 2P11 ANIME S2? WE NEED THAT OR THE ML ANIME INSTEAD OF MORE OF THIS SHIT. FUCK I MAD, BEING BACK 765
I want Kanako to bake me a cake and other sweets. Of course, I won't share any of it with her considering she needs to maintain a strict weight count for her idol career.
This makes me want an idolmaster show that features multiple producers. We can have them get together, get some drinks and vent out their frustration/problem at the end of each episode.
Anon, we've been over this
she has self image issues because she's always been too much great girl for all the manlet 11's
>One night stand:
>Marry, raise fluffly haired kids with and grow old together:
>Superior Intelligence Agent
It was Chihiro right?
>Holding hands during nap time
The easiest answer.
The last episode was really underwhelming. It didn't manage to get me like the rest of the second season.
Sadly, the first 2-3 episodes of this series got me, but the rest of the show was so damn underwhelming compared to them.
The coolest vocal.
She's just embarrassed to be sitting in his lap.
He's not really stoic.
Just good at acting stoic
Yep. The biggest flaw of this show is that there were just too many characters just shoved in with very little screen time. Kuroi was a much better antagonist that made the 2011 cast shine even more.
>Kuroi was a much better antagonist
Not again! My combo has been broken because of a Nice input!
This isn't nice at all--- Oh?
Perfect is a given... Great is good...
Nice isn't just nice enough
[ ナイス = Nice, 無いっす = none (in this context, doesn't cout) ]
How should I react in this?
Is she trying something!?!
Alright, an FC.
I dropped it after first season. I was really disappointed with overall quality and half of the cast being simply irritating gimmicks instead of actual characters. It lacked happy mood, character interactions, decent character development, tension, good concerts... it lacked everything that could make it a good show.
2011 anime was based on a game in which characters had whole routes to themselves. CG is based on mobage where there's 100+ girls, each based on single shtick, each having just a few lines to show off her "character".
Because it makes him even more moe and shippapble once he reveals his true nature as an idealistic dude willing to be the only one to fight his boss to keep his idols
The only exception is Mayu who's instead stalking his fellow friend/co-worker producer
Its because they are a company and like any company, Scamco wants a profit, so they are trying to pander to every specific type and fetish out there so they can attract all markets and extract the most amount of cash possible.
No, he played like that because it shows he likes to play with people and he doesn´t follow the rules. Mishiro did nothing relevant.
The character designs this time were a lot better.
Every single Idol was sexy as fuck in their own way.
Who's the better enjo kosei?
Rin or Kanada?
Big sucking sleeve and tight wrapping sleeve
there's something extremely dirty about this delinquent looking girl
Kanade is very expensive and only does it with customers she actually likes.
Rin is much less expensive and does it with balding fat old men.
CG is better.
It had slut idols.
What's the difference between enjo kosei, gyaru and delinquent?
I enjoyed the (main) characters and atmosphere more on the whole, but the they tried to do the same despair arc with Uzuki leading up to the concert that they did with Haruka and the last episode fell flat because there never really was any tension.
enjo kosei = schoolgirl prostitute
gyaru = girl who wears "slut fashion"
delinquent = someone who fuck teh rules
Rin is delinquent enjo kosei.
Who's this blond loli with overly long sleeves and how much of her is in anime?
Holy shit. Compared to her, Mika is a fucking poser.
Most talented Idol comin through.
She's not even the best rock idol.
Go to an agency or TV/movie production and try establishing connections. Not everyone is lucky like AkaP who stumbles upon some company who's desperate to hire anyone.
Be warned, though. Just because you're a producer doesn't mean it would be easy. You could be happy to handle a Cool idol or settle with Visual idol but there's a chance that you might get a Mental idol.
I know, but it has Uzuki being a ditzy leader, Mio being cheeky and TakeP scaring the new recruits and revealing his chuuni speak leading to him getting roped to do it on the upcoming party
We need to combine best guitarist with best singer.
They just don't like the idea of any male existing in their idol anime unless it's a relative.
Kinda sad that I've met some posers that proclaim themselves as an idol anime expert and yet haven't touched Mahou no Stage Fancy Lala or Full Moon wo Sagashite. They can't even name an idol group that has no anime counterpart (not knowing Morning Musume is fine but unaware that there are others under the AKB banner is weird).
Mugino is not "They".
It's just one massive autist.
You know a person is that bad when even the most hardcore militant a/u/tist refuses to associate themselves with that person.
I want to molest a Fumi.
They really got lucky that there's a VA out there who just happens to love Russia of all countries.
Anya a beautiful
You know, despite being strong enough to murder bears with her bare hands, I often forget that Yuka is kind of a Womanlet. Even for a Japanese Person.
Her shortness makes her super cute.
How can one girl contain hold that much energy?
How about a spinoff of cinderella girls or sequel even?
There's a lot of girls we haven't seen yet or even have voiced, I'm not sure if they ever would do it but it IS a possibillity
Well, there's always Cinderella Girls Ensemble. But, if it gets an anime, the gags with the unvoiced idols will either be replaced by someone else or just not used at all. It happened before with Puchimas.
Not necessarily for the unvoiced girls, but there are alot of voiced girls that can use the spotlight.
For example: Yuka and Momoka are voiced by relatively new Seiyuu, but with an already established following.
Not to mention how there are some very Popular CGs but still has no voices for them as well.
As messy as season 2 was, season 1 was pretty fun and it made my winter rather memorable (. Thanks CG.
I'd spar with Yuka everyday, if you know what I mean.
Yuka a cute!
She deserved better friends.
It's hard to have something to talk about when you're surrounded by backstabbing and self-centered sluts who think of nothing but themselves.
