Wow this is pretty fascinating.

I wonder why they didn't include Takane and Hibiki until the PSP version came around.

I knew of Idol Game but never got to see any photos...and I didn't know this topic existed. This is really cool <3

I wonder why they decided to change Takane's hair color from blonde to silver. Although this sounds odd, the silver hair actually makes her look younger.

I still wondered what it would have been like if they kept Chihaya's original name to be Ritsuko?

Then Chihaya would have one of the larger bust sizes in the game and Ritsuko would be the 72.

So that's where the iDOLM@STER originated then. All the original idols are there except Miki. I guess Miki was never part of the original gang afterall.

Yeah, she was added to 360 as one of (many) reasons to buy the new game instead of continuing to play Arcade. It's also why she had an alternate path and acted almost like a second main character to Haruka: she was new. The "alternate path" doesn't exist anymore because Miki's an old hat to the fanbase by now. Takane and Hibiki are just awesome enough that fans adapted to them extremely quickly.

Some Kubooka char from some Namco quiz game reused for some loketest of some idol-based arcade game for some Namco prototype some years ago.

Blond hair doesn't suit Takane.

That girl looks like a cross between Chihaya and Lucia, another Kubooka character.

I love Kubooka's art so much and I miss when he worked on iM@S.
