Title: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: SakuraMaxX on February 04, 2013, 03:29:54 AM

Mobile social game from GREE.  Not sure what I'm supposed to think of this.  No Cinderella Girls stuff this time around, looks like it's using the primary 765 idols.  Information coming soon.

Game doesn't seem to be public yet so I can't do anything about it.  Can't read what's on the site because I'm illiterate.

GREE, stahp. Please.
I can only read a little bit here but I don't understand much of it...is it just a card collecting game or something?

Why the reversal of the main Luxury colors...?

More to the point, I have a hard time seeing a collecting card game work with only 13 or 14 characters. (They may not include Kotori.) 16 or 17 if they include the base DS idols. (Equally as likely as Kotori; however, their likeliness is for all of them, and seperate from Kotori) Add 2-3 more if they include Yumeko, Cineria, and even less likely Mai. (They won't, though.) It can be done, I guess; but not as a card GAME surely. Maybe if it's just a "collect and trade cards" thing, it might work. I feel bad shortlisting the game's potential because of Cinderella Girls, but I don't see how it can bring anything new to the table. Considering the heart, star, and (what is that, a diamond? A sparkle?), along with the pink, yellow, and blue backgrounds, there seems to be a type system of some sort, one eerily alike to CGirls' Cute, Passion, and Cool, respectively. But the idol choices seem to betray that. (Mostly Yayoi; I might see Ritsuko in Passion, but Yayoi has no place in Cool. None.)

If you can't read anything on the page, don't worry. You're not missing much. Amazing how they can have a big page and blog post and say very little. ^^

There's a thing where you can pre-register for the game or something and get a rare Chihaya card.
http://wpp.jp/imas-million/

I guess you just click the big blue button on the top.

Other than that, A-1 Pictures'll be drawing the cards.

The site says it works in Firefox. You can do that for now.

... Or you can use Chrome. Doesn't look like you need to spoof your user agent, at least for this part. Dunno about the actual game.

Yay, and be sure to turn off your cell phone speakers when playing in public places, if you don't want to have everyone look at you weird.

Oh.... OH! Now I see what the colors mean. Huh. It makes a LOT of sense now. And somehow, I'm only slightly upset about the stepping on the CGirl's toes. But then, these girls all come with Luxury outfits with comparable color schemes, voice acting, primary stats, etc. I like how the idols are now separated by the same Vocal/Dance/Visual as the games usually are. Makes it make more sense in terms of the "fights" than CGirls. I only ask that they give us image colors for the new girls eventually. Also, that 876 is included. (They aren't in CG, so it's not too much to ask, is it?) Maybe they'll even include New Generation...?

Those new idols are just variants of the main idols.
There is a short sex hair Azusa.
A gray Makoto.
Haruka with just one ribbon and more srs face.
And that short haired miki....
At least they are not touhous this time like CG.

I'll give you the Azusa (though I still think she's adorable X3) and the Haruka, though the "gray Makoto" is more like "gray, juggling Eri" And the short-haired Miki seems slightly more tomboyish and less lazy. Also, one of the new Visual girls looks like Karen from Harvest moon. Still, I think we'll be out of this kind of thinking in a while; when we got Hibiki, people kept comparing her to Miki and Futami-tachi, while Takane got a lot of comparison to Azusa. Also, Ai to Haruka(which I would not say now, though a Yayoi comparison would be well warrented). Not sure if Eri and Ryou got the same comparison...

But I'm the kind of person who is always excited about new characters. Sometimes cautiously optimistic, like now; I'm slightly less cautious because CGirls have too many fans now for these newbies to change their minds too drastically.

EDIT:

After looking at the PV again, I've noticed that we get a- although brief and colorless- look at more idols, when they're showing the concept art. A girl with a short ponytail who matches the sillouette from the Dance category who looks kinda spunky and flirty, a girl with short hair in a shape from the Vocal category who looks kinda nervous but adorable, a girl with long and partially braided hair who looks serene and may be from Vocal, and a long-haired but generic girl with a headband who might be from Visual. (Hedgebet on Vocal)

I wonder if there's an enforced unit-count, like in CG (or what I've seen of CG gameplay..) It seems like it might be 3 idols, but then the idol "fight" scene looks kinda odd with 9 cards attacking Ami, Yayoi and Azusa. (Including another Ami. XD) Also, the "Commu" sections imply, at least to me, that Solo idol might be an option. Perhaps there will be advantages and disadvantages to having a single idol and to having multiple idols. (Which would be cool.) Maybe even a Quintet, like in CG and (some parts of) 2? Just spouting off random ideas...

Fuuka is totally Azusa 2.0. If she ever made an appearance in the main series, I'd love to see interaction between them. She's Azusa's long-lost twin. XD
Speaking of the main series, somehow I could picture the Million Live girls in an actual main iDOLM@STER game more than the CG girls. Even if some of them look similar to existing characters, they seem as if they were made with that intent. Not that I'd mind...

So, something that just hit my mind right now... that Chihaya Rare card. That smug smile, her carefree face, the arms in what almost seems to be a half-shrug...

... For some reason, I see that card and hear her singing I Shot the Sheriff like she really means it. Anyone else see that and think she's up to no good? ^_^

I'm seeing a bit more positive Western first impressions on this than Cinderella Girls. I just can't help but think that maybe that's because of A-1's artists' involvement.

Either way, I'm still excited for this. Has anyone heard about the gameplay for this one. From the impression it gave me, it's closer to your traditional iMAS games, but that's just me.

It has nothing to do with A-1 melting faces. Of course these new idols are better recieved because unlike cinderella girls these aren't touhous.
Also new idols revealed

(http://www.bandainamcogames.co.jp/cs/list/idolmaster/million_live/images/idol/bg_nao.jpg) best of the revealed girls.

But Megumi is still the best of the new characters

She reminds me of Kyoko from CG. Aside from her ponytail being on the other side, they kinda look the same.

Also, any news on the CD they're getting? Will it be another popularity thing or will they all sing?

Well, this could be like the Prototype thing with Takane and Hibiki, since the idol in the picture has a different eye color than the idol that is just revealed.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Neko-P on February 15, 2013, 10:55:12 PM
Huh. I'm still really liking the new designs. I think it also highlights my biggest problem with many CGirl designs; they're too one-note, too focused on a "concept." In some cases it works, like with Ranko, where she is a chuunibyou who has trouble being honest even with herself. In some cases it doesn't, like with Anzu, who has annoyed me since day 1, or like with Miku or Nana. (Also, I really like Kirari, but that's more because tall girls are cute~) In some cases, it makes the girls with less focus look "generic" or seem like they have undefinable personalities, which is in part because there's only so much that can be shown, personality-wise, in two cards and ten-ish lines of dialogue. It can be done well and leave a well-rounded character- I think a good example is Rin, who was somewhat popular since day 1, but also Mika and Rika, who are sociable, but with hidden depths, and whose garu-culture-ness doesn't take over their entire being.

Here, they're trying to make characters they'd seriously infuse into the games, who would stand out in-universe as an idol, but not stand out out-of-universe where she would seem too fantastical in the surprisingly-grounded iMAS universe. (Even if ribbon-girl reminds me disturbingly of Mayu...) Granted, people still think Takane's from the moon, and Hibiki talks to and understands animals (in the anime only, last time I checked, and it was the only thing I didn't like), and Chihaya's dead brother speaks to producer but these stand out because the rest of the imas world is well-rooted in the mundane. (Plus, Takane's probably not from the moon and Hibiki's wildspeak is anime- and possibly episode-exclusive, practically speaking.)

Puchimas doesn't count, shut up

Some Android notes.
(https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2024156/projectimas/iml-cap.png)
In case you can't read, it says "You already pre-registered, please wait until the public release."

Gree works just fine with a Japanese IP (the key notification icon means VPN) and a Gmail address so far, it tried to activate through a SMS right after e-mail confirmation, but the account was already up and live by then. Guess it's for some additional goodies like Mobage (or simply account security).

I can seemingly play without issues on other region-locked games like that freaky AKB stuff via the browser.

The actual Gree apps (apk) log in fine, but crash, though I'm pretty sure that's because of my phone since I'm using a very-bleeding-edge version (SGS2 CM10.1 nightly).
Haven't tried another rom, but Cocona's device works fine with an app he tested, which crashes with me (NepColl). The app version of that freaky AKB stuff had the same issue.
Code: [Select]
E/AndroidRuntime: java.lang.RuntimeException: pad block corrupted
E/AndroidRuntime: at net.gree.asdk.core.storage.CookieStorage.decryptSession(CookieStorage.java:239)
E/AndroidRuntime: at net.gree.asdk.core.storage.CookieStorage.access$1(CookieStorage.java:235)
E/AndroidRuntime: at net.gree.asdk.core.storage.CookieStorage$1.run(CookieStorage.java:117)
E/AndroidRuntime: at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:856)

The Gree app itself works fine, though.

Do note: to get the Gree apps through the Play Store, you'll need not only a Japanese IP, but also a Google account with the country set in Japan (easy enough) and maybe a Japanese SIM operator code (I'm not too sure about that last one, which is the role of MarketEnabler/MarketAccess, but I haven't tried without).
You can easily switch accounts anytime by hitting the menu button in the Play Store.

Despite all this I'm still not getting my hopes up until I get to the actual game. There's always a way for NBGI and friends to start blocking disgusting white pigs at the app level. And it's not like I'll be playing it anyway, I don't speak Japanese. But I have time to waste.

(https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2024156/projectimas/1361058915533.png)

When is the release date anyway?
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: SakuraMaxX on February 17, 2013, 05:43:45 PM
MarketEnabler doesn't work for me anymore for some reason so I have to resort to finding the apk by scanning Google.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Yunabeco on February 17, 2013, 07:27:05 PM
The values that were checked by the store and modified by MarketEnabler aren't checked for downloading anymore.

Now it's divided into two parts: the search part (when you lookup the name on the Store) and the download part (whether it will let you download it in your country).

For the search part, I believe it checks all three: IP, account and SIM operator. That's whenever you hit the Search button and type text to get the app listing.
Warning: the Play Store caches pretty much all queries. So if you do change any of those three then try again and find out it still doesn't work, try changing the text a bit.

Now, for the actual download (on the app page), it just checks Google account country, which you can hit Menu > Accounts to change.

Which basically boils down to:
- If you want to download NepColl, access it directly ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.gree.android.pf.greeapp57531a ) on your phone, chances are it won't let you on the web store. Then Menu, Accounts, pick a Japanese account and download.
- If you want to see NepColl on the search results, get a VPN, pick a Japanese account, and run Market Enabler (which I haven't tried).

I'm using this self-made and rudimentary script to change my operator code instead of MarketEnabler. Run as root.

Code: [Select]
#!/system/bin/sh
/system/bin/setprop gsm.sim.operator.numeric 44010
/system/bin/setprop gsm.sim.operator.alpha "NTT docomo"
/system/bin/setprop gsm.sim.operator.iso-country jp

/system/bin/rm  -r /data/data/com.android.vending/app_sslcache/*
/system/bin/pm enable com.android.vending
echo "Done."

It's temporary and won't persist after a reboot (though it can be configured to be so). I'm using SManager to run it.
Disclaimer, run at your own risk, I can't be held responsible if this utterly destroys your phone, make backups, yadda, yadda.

Two different queries, respectively before and after running the script above.

tl;dr: you need at least a market link (or the Gree app, which has them) and a Japanese Google account to get an app, and a Japanese IP and Gree account to play Gree games.

TBH, I'm surprised Ritsuko is in the visual tab, normally she's paired up with the vocal heavy characters like chihaya and asuza.
Also that one idol with the bump-it hair looks just like mizuki from Aikatsu.

I thought the exact same thing. Out of the idols we've seen so far, I only like is Shizuka the Chihaya clone, Megumi, Nao and Fuuka, Azusa's long-lost twin. Although these idols do look like they belong in the iM@S world more than the CGs, some of their designs could've been better.

I'll agree that some of the designs are unintuitive or bland, but I like others. Though some confuse me, like the new girl whose concept art shows glasses YET SHE WEARS NONE IN HER STAGE OUTFIT. I mean, Idolmaster has a long, accepting history of Meganekkos; why REMOVE a meganekko's glasses in this game? I sorta-not-really got it in CG, since there was a myriad of idols and some may have preferred them without glasses. (Like with the "awakened Ritsuko" videos I've seen on youtube...) But she's so CUTE, and she even had PIGTAILS in the concept art. She looked so much less generic, and then...! She's still SO CUTE though, and she sounds amazing! Also, she's my age.

I like ponytail girl, though. And the gaijin. (That's the blond with pigtails, Emily, did any of you not catch her.) For some reason, gaijin characters don't seem too popular in the imas fandom, Miki's psuedo-gaijin-ness notwithstanding. She also has a somewhat more accurate bust than some other gaijin girls I've seen in anime. The blond new girl from Visual is also kinda cute-looking; she seems really calm, but I can't think of anything that sets her apart... Also, the new Ojou girl is kinda funny, since she goes from trying the "OH HO HO!" laugh to coughing. I REALLY like the dance girl with the headband, Elena. She's cute, good at dancing in a way none of the other girls can claim (at the very least, she's trained in Samba or something, and my age has a unique hair color. I also like the Kyoko-expy, but she is rather generic...

Tentative favs are: Elena, Sayoko(?), Miya(?), and Nao. (Four 'cause I'm kinda obsessed with the idea of a four-idol unit, with a specialist for Dance, Vocal, Visual, and then a more well-rounded or personality focused person for the "leader." )

I know how you feel... I'm a glasses wearer... She looks really good with them... Maybe it's character development, like she feels the need to shed her glasses to feel stronger? Or maybe they just wanted to keep Ricchan unique? I prefer the second...

She could just wear contacts on stage. That way her fans wouldn't be able to easily tell it's her if she's walking down the street, I believe. She looks cute either way. ^_^

At first I just thought Julia had her hair cleaned up for her stag appearance, but... Yeah, the concept art looks nothing like her, and doesn't even match the voice-over at all.

On new girls:

I like the vocal girls quite a bit.
The girl with the headband(Sanase? I'm relying on the voice-over here...) is rather cute. X3
Julia's STAGE art is cute, but I'm not sure how to take her with the concept art as it is... Her voice fits the stage art better, but her signiture fits the concept better...
I'm not sure how to take the last girl. I'm ambivalent.

The new dance girls are... Meh?
Subaru's kinda cute...
The Mio-expy just strikes me as someone who is trying too hard to be cute.
I kinda like the other girl's design, but I'm still not sure about her. (She does seem like she should be in a unit with Julia, though...)

The visual girls are, of course, nice to look at.
Shiho has a nice design.
I kinda like Roco's design, as well.
Windswept-girl is interesting to look at, but her voice doesn't strike me as unique.
The 11-year-old is ADORABLE. X3

The last ten girls are here! And a dance tab girl is actually trying to compete with Nonowa...

Wowzers... By the way, "Julia" of the Vocal tab is bothering me. Her concept art looks nothing like her...

She likes punk rock and can play the guitar, so I guess it's all good. Just needs to kill some metal.

I really like these new character since they blend in well with the existing canon.

But I'm really curious about their singing voices more than anything. This is iDOLM@STER after all. I just wanna hear them sing. X_X

Here's hoping they appear in a future main installment, or at the very least get CDs. It would be so amazing if we got a new full iDOLM@STER game with brand new idols. It would be amazing if I could coordinate brand new characters and voices *_*

Post by: Neko-P on February 27, 2013, 01:22:36 AM
... Why does Julia's bust grow so much between street and stage clothes? It does little to make the stage clothes version mesh with her concept and signature.

My current faves are now (or at least, the ones I'd want to use in a unit or, if I ever apply myself, a fanfic): Sayoko, Miya, Akane, and either Nao or Minako. (I want to write a four-member unit, and I can't decide if the dance-heavy girl should be Nao or Minako... Leaning Nao right this second, but Minako's so cute...)

I feel like there should have been an "all-around" category. (Character? Tension? Average?) Mostly because the trio that they always seem to push is Haruka, Chihaya, and Miki, but in Million Live that's a group of two vocals and one visual, which seems... unbalanced. (On the other hand, PF is balanced with 1 of each, while RK is two vocal and one visual. Two visuals with Ritsuko.) I would have put Haruka there, as well as maybe Yayoi (moving the twins to Dance) and Yukiho (moving Iori to Visual). As for new girls to put there, maybe Neo-Haruka Mirai, Arisu, Akane, Subaru, Yuriko, and one of the Lolis. (Maybe one more from each section to even things out? Those were the two from each category who stood out to me.)

Also, am I the only one who didn't know that Iori was vocal...? I always thought she was visual-oriented. Similarly, I though the twins were dance, and that Azusa was visual. (I never knew what to think of Ritsuko, and Yukiho as visual is something I didn't think of, but makes sense in retrospect.) Then again, I was really only aware that Chihaya and Takane were high-vocal, Makoto and Hibiki were high-dance, and that Miki was high-visual. (Which makes me ask: who was the high-visual idol before Miki...?) Then, this isn't the first time I disagreed with typing. *CoughCinderellaGirlCough* Seriously, Yukiho should be Cute, Yayoi Passion, Makoto Cool, Azusa either Cute or where she is, Iori Cute, Hibiki Passion...

Iori has been VI for as long as I can remember and the Futami twins have been pretty much strictly DA oriented. Azusa is mainly VI with a comparable VO stat. Ricchan was practically the "Mario" of the game, with high stats all around. Iori was the big VI before Miki with Ricchan and Azusa close behind.

I don't like the VIDAVO changes much either, but there's been worse.

The 876 idols would have fit in with MILLION LIVE... I can't help but feel sad that they didn't make an appearance.

I don't like the VIDAVO changes much either, but there's been worse.

The 876 idols would have fit in with MILLION LIVE... I can't help but feel sad that they didn't make an appearance.

So... I was right...?

So in a perfect(-ish) world: (Spoilered for rambling/generally not-being-useful-ness)
New "All-Around"/"Character": Haruka, Ritsuko, Yayoi
Updated Dance: Hibiki, Makoto, Ami, Mami
Updated Visual: Iori, Miki, Yukiho
Updated Vocal: Chihaya, Takane, Azusa

Azusa in vocal doesn't bother me as much, since, as you said, she was also pretty good in the vocal stat. Plus, it's kinda needed for balance. Dividing the 37 new girls, though, may be a problem... Unless we add 876 to make it an even(ly divisible by 4) 40 to sort out...? But that might be a problem when Ami and Mami take up two character slots, meaning we would maybe need 39 instead...? (Cut Ryo so that he can be a male idol...? Would alleviate his not being in Dance, as well...) So with Ai in Vocal and Eri in Visual, we'd need one more new girl in "Character" than in the others, but I don't think that's a problem.

Distribution of new girls + Ai and Eri (Last two bolded)
Character: Mirai, Arisu, Akane, Emily, Subaru, Konami, Rio, Yuriko, Shiho, Iku
Dance: Tamaki, Reika, Elena, Noriko, Nao, Minako, Umi, Mizuki, Ayumu
Visual: Eri, Tsubasa, Megumi, Fuuka, Matsuri, Chizuru, Miya, Karen, Momoko, Roco
Vocal: Ai, Hinata, Shizuka, Tomoka, Serika, Sayoko, Anna, Julia, Kotoha, Kana

... so, basically, the girls with weaker ties to their type (Rio had hobbies that sounded more Visual-oriented, Akane's only claim to dance was being energetic, etc.) or that seemed more well-rounded (Mirai as a Haruka-clone, Arisu is a huge fan of all things idol, etc.) moved to the new type, and the others stayed. Some stayed despite my wanting to move them because I wanted to keep them roughly where they were (so no former dance idols in vocal) for the sake of numbers; every category has exactly 13 idols under this classification system.

Not sure where Jupiter (and Ryo) would fall, though, since we haven't seen their stats (minus Ryo); Rough guess (balanced for Ryo, as the only four male idols in the games): Hokuto VI, Shouta DA, Touma CH or VO; Ryo would probably pick up CH to balance, and because he would probably be super-excited about being a male idol, with Touma having VO. Ryo and Shouta may switch the CH and DA, but it's doubtful; Ryo never did a backflip. Also why I'd consider Touma for CH for his all-rounded-ness, but Ryo isn't really VO, and this whole thing was made to make things closer to the games, so...


So we can all agree that the social games may have a good job of making new characters, but they do poorly at categorizing the old ones.

Well, the game is region-locked. Unless an app variation is released (I didn't see one on iTunes), then there's no way to access the game from outside Japan unless you can spoof your location.

French IP/region/language, Chrome Beta browser/UA, SGS2, and a Gmail address (I am completely serious). Chrome PC still fails with Piyo-chan pouting most of the time about unsupported terminals, but that particular screen got lucky.
Oh, and voices didn't work with Chrome Beta, but audio issues are known with that. Might work with the stock browser, haven't tested.
Now, where do I learn Japanese.

Some assets directly from the horses's mouth server:
(http://m.ip.bn765.com/204d120a9)(http://m.ip.bn765.com/20b3e3ea5)

EDIT 1/2: It's technically region-locked since you indeed need a JP GREE account to access it (or get that (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2024156/caps/Screenshot_2013-02-28-16-24-23.png), yeah, it's getting pretty cold here), but contrary to popular belief you don't need an approved phone e-mail or phone number to get one. Just perform the registration on a Japanese IP. It can even be in English. Click the link in the e-mail, just go back to games.gree.net when it wants your phone number, and confirm the account you're now logged in is locked to Japan in Settings/Profile/Living in. You can now use any IP to log in and play. Though this may be subject to change pretty damn soon (remember Mobage).

EDIT 3: Addendum+Erratum, Chrome PC actually works real fine. Better than on my SGS2. Kotori no longer talks shit about my browser after switching to the UA I use on my phone (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2024156/droid/ua.txt), clearing all gree/bn765 cookies and logging in through gree.net.
I had to use the Developer Tools User-Agent override (Ctrl-Shift-I, lower right settings button) instead of the User-Agent switcher extension which stopped working for no apparent reason. Ticked "Emulate touch events" too, which is apparently needed for voices (tap unmute, tap on idol and give it a couple seconds). Don't forget to switch it on every time; the Developer Tools settings are only active for the current tab.

I didn't see anything yet about goodies unlocked through phone confirmation. Actually, I don't see anything about a phone anywhere in the Settings, and the confirmation link doesn't work anymore. That's a shame. Since it had all countries, I want to try it now.

If you want to give all your money to Scamco, it's now possible. Paypal is accepted and works, even with another Paypal e-mail and country.

Well, now that pretty much everything works, I believe that ends my research. At least until bn765.com/gree.net starts to crack down on the filthy white pigs we are.

... they are? I'm not surprised, to be honest; after all, this is the fandom that broke game discs for Jupiter's inclusion. But, I figured that, after the good reception of Cinderella girls, this would be somewhat well-received... At the very least, a little more neutrally. Bad reception does explain the lack of fanart, though... ( I mean, we've had the girls revealed for a little while now, I'd expect at least a little. I think even Jupiter had some art soon after their reveal...)

I'm kinda surprised that they're not taking to ML. Was this a problem pre-launch? If so, I guess they wanted 765 to remain an exclusive club or something. I am a little put off by them adding so many idols to 765. Seems like they should have had a partner production or something so that you can use the original 765 idols and still have new ones.

That said, though, I have no problems with the characters we got. They've been given some fantastic treatment (idol art, casual art, voices), so this has been a pretty exciting thing for me.

well if you ask , you see the reason i discovery Japanese complaint and bashing about ML begin on the day ML launched, i curious how Japanese fandom reception on ML i think is going more positive than i thought but hoo boy how wrong i am, i think it just on one website so i check several other website  boy i am wrong again.

and now i present you the Japanese fandom complaining and bashing factor on ml:
warning:please prepare your mentality and your faith on im@s fandom

1.the fact ML using anime artwork:
surprise surprise the Japanese fandom dislike the fact ml using anime and accusing scamco being to lazy and some say their miss im@s old style artwork heck there even say they are crappy and of course there some (more many though) cg artwork is superior.

2.ML character
since first day (yeah i checked it) the Japanese fandom reception toward them is negative.
here the most common bashing:
their face same, clone, rip-off, not original, no individuality,their hair is unrealistic (to some of them)
and somehow the bashing getting worse (in some side) after ML release some comment call them don't have im@s character aura or simply don't feel there a new character

some community dislike the exclusive privilege ML girl get (voice and album)

and don't bought up the fact ml girl is part 765pro a good way you getting bashed here a excellent comment from them:
"i can't not laugh with fact them (ml girl) is part of 765pro"
"how can be they are part of 765pro"

heck there are who skeptical 765pro main girl going be shoved out and ML girls is the main focused and with the fact i mentioned earlier well....

3.ML concept
one of the plus point the Japanese fandom negative reception toward ML
here a rough ML concept:
a group of idols (in ML case 50) sing in place called theater remind you with something?
yeah the fact ML make 765pro being like AKB is make Japanese fans rather unpleasant at least
and here the comment which work as last strike to me as this comment make me look ML jaded and skeptical as now:

"765pro in regression/is degrading" (i forget which one is true probably because i don't wanna remember it)

as above comment say many Japanese fans think ML concept make 765pro lose it way or lose it originality.

4.the complaint (which probably the root of most current bashing)
many complaining the fact ml have many bug, error and technical difficult.

well that's it the reason why Japanese fandom bash and complaining ML it doesn't help some Japanese fans maybe dislike ML as ML album pre order starting to drop (this or the fact ML album published by lantis) however there still some who like ML even it's not much as the hater so don't worry

also one last thing there one thing Japanese im@s fandom really want a genuine sequel, a sequel with im@s signature game-play.

I know that the western fandom [gleaning this from tumblr, i haven't been on /a/ in a while] is perceiving it as trying too hard to cinderella girls 2.0.

The popular opinion seems to that CG "earned" its cds/voices/shiny festa/anime cameo?/whatever. Like it started out not very official but then it got popular enough to warrant them. But million live has anime art, voices, and all that right off the bat. I think that's caused some resentment.

Of course I don't play cinderella girls anymore since I'm not verified [I just drop in to get login bonuses and look at the pretty cards] so I'm not "in the loop".

It's such a crying shame they're being received so negatively.

Coordinating is by far my favorite part of the main iDOLM@STER console games, and as much as I love our beloved idols, I would die to have even more characters and voices to work with and coordinate. All the increased possibilities made me really happy... But I guess I can kiss those thoughts goodbye. :(


I would have loved to see brand new idols in a main installment and see what new combinations I could make, and see the chemistry between all the different idols, both new and old.

Just gonna throw out the fact that there will be multiple 8th Anniversary concerts, if you buy the Million Live CD Thank You! you can try to get a ticket before anyone else does, and the last such anniversary concert is at the Tokyo Game Show. That second fact could be mere coincidence, who knows - the Cinderella Girls CD is being released around the same time after all. At least some of the original Im@s idols will be around for the concert, but there will be others performing.

But no, what'll kill a franchise is having a high profile main game that doesn't do well... twice. After one, a franchise kinda starts limping and really needs something good to turn it around. After two, it's gone. That being said, Million Live is not said high profile main game.

I mean, if side games like these could ruin a franchise, no one would make 'em. Besides, who'd say that Sakura Taisen/Devil May Cry/Idolm@ster is a bad series because their pachinko games were horrible pachinko games? I know I wouldn't.

I'm sorry maybe i overreact about this but I'm starting think ML killed Imas franchise since some Japanese fans comment say so and there 3 defining factor in my opinion:

factor 1:
there a post in some popular Japanese community who say ML in ranked #1 in most played game in gree plaform instead praise majority of comment somehow end-up being recommendation to other idol themed series (like AKB0048,love live,Aikatsu and so on....) and several days later ML significantly drop from the ranking.

Factor 2:
with Lawson campaign announced many Japanese fans in my community starting get sick with the scamco aptitude to forcing the Japanese Imas to like ML or the fact scamco rushing ML Promotion/want ML get popular fast.         

Factor 3:
With Announced of promotion if you buy ML CD you get Anniversary concerts ticket many buy ML CD but most Japanese fan reaction toward this move is disgust, pathetic and disbelief how low and dirty scamco(or Lantis) could be. (Also from my personal observation this factor is worst impression ML give to Japanese fans)

also the reason why some Japanese fans call ML as Franchise killer to Imas Franchise most likely dislike us who see CG and ML as "side game" Japanese fans treated ML as "main games" (which supported by Imas homepage)

also if you interested how popular ML i suggest to check pixiv because Japanese Fandom for some reason despite ML ranking system

I am sorry to reply this so long because i need to set mind straight again and do some research

It is kinda strange that Namco, or Lantis, is pushing so hard to make ML a success. CG didn't get THIS much push when it came out.

At least some of the original Im@s idols will be around for the concert, but there will be others performing.

Do you know who will? Any names yet?

I am apologize if this sounded rather extreme but did you think it's not impossible to say million live is  franchise killer for Imas franchise?

I am sorry if this sound rather harsh but i am starting think this after i read too many negative opinion about ML in Japanese (which dominating let's just say every post/news about ML)

Well, Daverost pretty much said my argument: Cinderella Girls was kinda like a sleeper hit in terms of popularity. It became a hit on its own because it "earned their place" over time. Million Live, as I've felt it, was Namco's attempt on jumping on the bandwagon CG started for them, and taking every measure they could to make sure it gets as big of a following to CG (familiar anime art, all idols have VAs, etc.). I guess we all know how that story is going. ML's situation is probably salvageable, and could be turned around to what Namco envisioned where it would be, but for that to happen I'm betting on one factor: time.

Japanese iDOLM@STER do have a tendency to overreact from what I'm getting.

Post by: rin fans on April 20, 2013, 07:46:54 PM
after some time of memory digging i remember the reason why Japanese fandom say ML going kill Imas Franchise : Extreme paranoia

The day when ML release there a rumor who starting appear and say ML girl going appear in the movie and as time goes on this rumor starting evolved to being say ML girl going appear in Im@s 3 and being main character on Im@s 3.

because emm.. ML girl is "not well received" to say at least and they fear they ruined the franchise and in the end their paranoid become "ML kill franchise" thing

so the Factor 1 i mentioned probably because some of they already paranoid enough to suggest other fan to leave Imas franchise for good

on other hand the third website i always come usually always cold headed about this starting to get the impact to sure they don't say ML kill the franchise thing but they starting thing ML kill 765pro

on the note i usually look 3 website about Imas franchise news related thing and here their view about ML:
1st website:the most paranoid one
2nd website:the anti-ML already become bland and vocal about their haterd
3nd website:the cool headed one but starting get the impact

note:only 2nd website is the one who focused on Imas franchise only the 1st and 3nd website is more to anime,manga and game general but their opinion is more honest before in the end the anti-ML in 2nd website more bland

and lastly because i tell Japanese fandom opinion about ML i'm starting to think to tell my opinion ML to

and here the freshly baked insult toward ML:
> Social Games latest "Idol Master Million Live" is a big hit
   I'm sorry, when did you hit?
I just using Google translate about this but this clear enough

Implying that any of the iDOLM@STER spin offs aren't killing 765 pro. I like how the backlash of ML seems well spoken but yet I barely seen any grief for CG.

However I agree that anyone who is too worried about this game is just paranoid. Just let $camco be $camco. Loyalty issues are clearly none of their worries. They'll do whatever it takes to expand the franchise even if it hurts a few of their existing fans.

Post by: ninjamitsuki on April 20, 2013, 11:55:36 PM
I actually kind of wanted the Million Live girls to be in iM@s 3, along with the old idols.

I just want something brand new to work with when it comes to coordinating. I love all of our 765 idols dearly but I'd die to have some new idols to meet and produce, and have them interact with the 765 idols. I actually made a post on Tumblr about my pipe dream about iDOLM@STER 3, where basically it was like Pokemon versions, one version had 765 and one version had Million Live, each had different song selection and the rivals in the game would be the characters from the opposing game. But hey, maybe the next generation of consoles could have enough space for ALL the idols.

I thought the only thing preventing my pipe dream from happening other than it being a fan idea was the large budget it would require, but I suppose fan hate is the other major reason.

While I don't want to say goodbye to 765, I do want some sort of fresh start.

well about this whatever i search the answer
the answer always same

okey dokey if CG takeover because CG idol is loveable and appealing character but not okay if ML takeover because ML idol is shit/unappealing and melt-face

Also lately because ML 765pro image getting bad most likely because they become like AKB (sure this thing is trivial but for the Japanese AKB is sacred thing)(and this reason is also source of most bashing come from) the other reason is because ML 765pro lose it original touch 

Also the reason why many buy the ticket mostly because they paranoia i say earlier most of Japanese fans say they going go to TGS concert just to confirm their own paranoids 

Also they still small but there a faction who want CG takeover Imas franchise because for them is the only way to save Franchise, for greater good 

i also interested if true ML girl going be main character in Imas 3 i wonder how much Japanese fans who going leave

So the Cinderella Girls are okay?

Then I guess my pipe dream about different versions would involve popular Cinderella Girls instead of Million Live girls. I changed my post accordingly. Even though a lot of the Cindrella Girls' personalities are very simple stereotypes.

But that would still require a large voice budget, I imagine.

Either way I am probably the only person in the world who wants new idols. It's just... I want something fresh.

Implying that any of the iDOLM@STER spin offs aren't killing 765 pro. I like how the backlash of ML seems well spoken but yet I barely seen any grief for CG.

CG's story goes more or less like this: CG started out as something fans were indifferent to. They don't exactly hate it, but they weren't quick to like it, either. At the opening months, they have to rely on the 765 idols' name to boost interest to it; the starter rares were the 765, the invitational campaigns offered 765 idols, some comp gachas (while they were still around) have one of the 765 for the S Rare, etc.

Eventually and over time, people were focusing on the original idols, mostly on some populars like Anzu, Kirari, Jougasaki sisters, basically those who got Cinderella Masters now, but still the focus was on the originals. It perhaps came to the point where they no longer need the 765 to boost CG's name, and more focus came to the originals. All of that, however, didn't happen overnight. I assume it took CG eight to ten months for them to reach this state in their popularity.

I believe it is possible for ML to achieve the success of CG. But as you may have guessed, it's gonna take time. And they've only been around for a few months, so they're obviously not there yet. What makes their situation different from CG is that ML have a bigger budget spent on it, so they obviously need ML to do just as well as CG now. I'm assuming that's not the case, since some people feel that ML is being forced into them, and that feeds the paranoia we've been talking about. In my opinion, perhaps Namco got way in over their heads with this. This isn't a business perspective, but I think the best route for them to take the sleeper hit route again and, like in CG before, focus more on ML originals.

Even though a lot of the Cindrella Girls' personalities are very simple stereotypes.

Well, if an idol's popular enough, they flesh her out. This is the case when an idol gets new cards in the game, so their cards look more or less like a story.

Either way I am probably the only person in the world who wants new idols. It's just... I want something fresh.

I hear you. But while it's perhaps a good bet to use popular characters to add to 765's cast, Namco might just make new idols and introduce them the way Project Fairy was introduced to us.

Ahaha, you said the g-word.  I didn't want to be the one to bring it up, but now that the topic has been broached... I'll say it, it is inevitable, and it will hurt.  The passage of time makes it so.  I'm not saying I want it to happen- on the contrary, I don't want to let go.

Imas relies on voice actresses instead of just faces, which I think has helped to grant the franchise a longevity that most real idol groups would envy.  But because of that, there are certain voices that are frankly, irreplaceable.  (I'm still not fond of how Yukiho turned out.)  So I suppose they might start phasing out characters rather than casting replacement actresses.  I'm sure fans of the first few to go will make a horrible screech.  Or perhaps they might turn over everyone at once in favor of a new "generation".  Neither sounds fun.

This thread is the first time I've seen Imas criticized here in any form, so now that the door has been opened... *wedges foot in door*.  I've always been a little wary of Cinderella Girls, that patchislot game, and whatever Million Live is.  Cell phone and pachislot games... I guess Namco Bandai couldn't be satisfied with what they were getting so they had to push and push... did they push too far?  I've always been impressed with the effort Namco Bandai put into their main franchise... the songs, the skits, the character designs... not so much this other stuff.  I think they've been cribbing a few too many trends from the real life industry.  Super huge groups, tickets in CDs, yeesh.

For what it's worth, with the amount of development we got in Im@s 2, I'd say there's still a few things that the original idols can do. The narrative seemed quite hands off, and there weren't that many commus. And don't get me started about the amount of new content without buying DLC...

But eh... if they announce another full blown Im@s game, I'm just prepared for the moment they say they've got an entirely new cast. I've kinda resigned myself to it at this point. However, I think it's about impossible for them to have a 48-idol cast (taking ML's example 'cause they've got the fewer idols), simply because 48 main characters is simply too much to put in one game. So, something's gotta give - at best maybe some faces from each, plus some new ones might be called for, if they're not going back to the original cast. That's an if, though, a big if, and really, do we have enough information to be guessing like that yet?

... Well, we're fans. We'll do it no matter what. ^^

Although thinking about it, DLC characters would... what? Extend the life of a single game? And they've split games like in SP... but that's still 48 characters.

The next generation of consoles could be really powerful, though, so who knows. Maybe they could add a considerable amount of new idols without replacing the old idols and upsetting fans, while also pleasing those wanting something new.

There's also the idea of having two opposing versions of the game. I actually made a post about my dream iDOLM@STER game that would use that as a gimmick on Tumblr: http://ninjamitsuki.tumblr.com/post/48066832967/an-awesome-pipe-dream-i-came-up-with-for-idolm-ster-3

It's a fan idea but I think the basic gist of having two separate games with rival agencies could be cool.

Either way in a new game I would like to see more interaction between the idols, in fact I think that could be a great way to make things fresh in iM@S 3 with the same cast. I'm going to add that to my wishlist in "Things you want in a future installment".

I'm looking foreward to Nao, and I'm curious what they'll do with Haruklone Mk. III Mirai's song, but not super excited about the batch.

I like the songs so far, though I'm having trouble keeping up with idol names. Which is surprising to me, since I've only rarely had trouble with CGirl names. I only remembered a handful-ish of ML names, and then only of the idols I liked. And Mirai, but then I just remember her as the "generic everygirl" of ML. And an unneccessary one at that, since ML has Haruka still, but whatever...

37 new idols divided by 12 old idols (counting Futamis as one) = 3 new idols per old idol with one remainder.
Basically, they added that one remainder to Haruka's album, which has 4 new idols. The other 33 are split between the remaining 11 albums. Due to this, I think it's likely that the Futamis will only have one album.

Summary:
4 ML idols for Haruka's album
3 ML idols for every other album (Futamis have the same album)

Basically, they added that one remainder to Haruka's album, which has 4 new idols. The other 33 are split between the remaining 11 albums. Due to this, I think it's likely that the Futamis will only have one album.

Summary:
4 ML idols for Haruka's album
3 ML idols for every other album (Futamis have the same album)

Oh, I see. But wouldn't that mean the twins will only have 2 MLs on their CD?

Also, Ritsuko, Hinata, Arisa and Minako for LIVE THE@TER 09

Hibiki's album had 4 ML girls too, you know. Subtract the 8 ML girls from the first two CDs, you're left with 29 girls to split into groups of three. That makes 9 trios and 2 left over. If AmiMami share a CD, the two leftovers can go with them and make another clean group. So:

2 groups of 4 ML girls
9 groups of 3 ML girls
1 group of 2 ML girls

So 12 CDs, which is how many would be needed if AmiMami shared. Right?

I think it's pretty cute! I was surprised, actually anticipating something a little more on the lines of Kiramekirari (in terms of high genki level), but I think Lantis was shooting for a more loli feel here, considering the other ML characters in the album.

THE iDOLM@STER LIVE THEATER 12 Group song "ココロがかえる場所", or "Place where the heart changed"? I used Google translate, so another translation would be appreciated.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcsHvTXlQbc

かえる is written here in full hiragana. It can mean to change, or to return (to home). Without kanji, you really can't tell, but I think the double meaning is kinda the point.

... Also, that word can mean frog, but I don't think the song is about a magical place where green woodland creatures start pumping your blood.

I don't think so. At least I never had those problems when I was level 40+ as I had no trouble beating level 30 Idol groups and finishing a level 35 fest in 5BP. If leveling up your idols doesn't help then perhaps you need to invest in better cards? XP

I have a question. Since Cinderella Girls is getting an anime for 2015, do you think that Million Live will get an anime in the next few years? If so, how would you imagine it? Would it be a sequel to the 2011 anime/2014 movie, or would it be its own separate thing?

Hello...I just started playing the game a week or so ago and I have a game mechanics question.

I read that the best way to awaken a card is to combine it with a copy of the same card. Do they both have to be at max lvl, or does one have to be at max lvl and the other doesn't matter?

Thanks all.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: animagic4u on April 13, 2014, 06:44:20 PM
I think only one has to be max level.
Don't make the same mistake as me! I combined my Alisas just to find out that her awakened power level isn't as strong as having both of them maxed.

New produce mode and units unveiled... from what I can tell, it's a mode where new stories are added every week, and you play through them?

The first unit is Legend Days, and composed of Iori, Ami, Yayoi, and Ritsuko with Hibiki as the center. Their song is "Aikotoba wa Start". The second unit, Otome Storm, is led by Mirai and includes Tsubasa, Mizuki, Yuriko, and Anna, with the theme song "Growing Storm".

I don't play ML but this seems interesting enough, and I hope it leads to more CD releases!

Iori, Ami, Yayoi, and Hibiki, huh? Why must they be so afraid to go against the norm? And by stories, are they going to be akin to routes, like in the console games?

I mostly follow the solos for each character. There were some that I thought were great (Shiho, Chizuru, Matsuri, and Konomi) while others were rather........eh... (Noriko and Tsubasa), so I hope these new CDs show some improvement.

CG has the better characters and music IMO but it's essentially impossible to play as a gaijin (and getting harder to play without paying to get SRs) at this point. ML is more forgiving.

There isn't English support at the moment, and this game has even less of a gaijin user base than CG as far as I can tell. HOWEVER a lot of the stuff is pretty average phone card game fare, so if you've played one like that you should be able to somehow find your way around...

I gotta say, some of these unit selections are WEEEEIRD. Crescendo Blue having Shizuka, Shiho, and Reika sounds perfect but I don't think Serika and Akane were the best choices. They seem to clash way too much. Eternal Harmony's selection feels.....random. I dunno, it just does.

YES! More Shiho songs! Liar Rouge was also one of my favorites and I can't wait to hear more of Sora Amamiya singing!

The second unit seems like it could work pretty well because with the exception of Julia it's all easygoing idols, then the leader is Chihaya... *shrugs*

What is awakened SR card ? and how can i get it ?

Awakened SR card means it is a card that has that musical note icon in the bottom corner. In order to get the next step you have to fuse the original SR (at max level) to a copy of itself (at any level). Then you get the next step.

Rinse and repeat for the following 'steps'.

Awakened SR cards can come from events, gasha, etc.

Reeeally late to jump in on this topic, hehe.

I think you guys are, or were rather, thinking in terms of vocal ability, maybe? If so, yeah, Akane and Serika are a bit out of place. But on a character aspect, I think Shizuka and Serika are most likely best friends and Shizuka and Shiho do tend to clash and have some sort of rivalry, as depicted in that nice, over-the-top trailer. I have no idea what Shizuka, Shiho, or Serika's relation to Akane or Reika, though.

As for Eternal Harmony... Yeah, I dunno. But so far the unit episodes are turning out to be fun. Emily's English does things to my heart.

Can you please give basic summaries of how the 37 new girls are like in terms of personality and characteristics? It may seem like a big task, but I've always been curious. Sorry if this is too demanding.

I can give it a try, but I've to say that my English are not that good though, so expect a lot of bad grammar.


This summaries come from nicopedia,pxivpedia,milion live radio,the on-going manga,Live performance CD ,and my own experience. If anyone spot a mistake please tell me so I can fix it


Kasuga mirai (春日未來)


Age:14
hieght: 156 cm
weight: 42 kg
B-W-H : 78.0cm / 54.0cm / 77.0cm
birthday : 28 June (Cancer)
Blood type : O
Handedness : Right
Hobby : Collect cute hairpin
Special skill : Singing
Like : Live


The center of million stars. She is basically what Haruka is to the original cast, though in term of personality she is what you get if you mix Hidaka Ai with Haruka, friendly, cheerful and full of energy.
Her last name is a mixed of Haruka and Hidaga Ai (Kasuga(春日)=春香(haruka)+日高(Hidaga))while her name is come from the name of the game itself (Million Live pronouns in Japanese as mirion raibu) 
She is not a smart Girl, tend to forgot to do her home work, don’t know who Oda Nogunaka (one of the most, if not the most famous warlord in war period Japan) was. And she always speaks before thinking. She also seem to be a terrible cook since her homemade special drink cause the producer to make a really scary face.
Her path to become idol started when her friend take her to an idol live (in manga it is Mogami Shizuka who she just meet and the live in question is 765pro’s theater live which Shizuka is part of)  and she became so impressive that she instantly quiet her club to become an idol.
She is also quite an innocent girl, embraced to be in swimsuit, don’t sure whether her feeling for   producer is love or just respect.
Mirai, along with Mogami Shizuka and Ibuki Tsubasa often refer by Japanese fan as “The traffic light trio” due to their image color.


Mogami shizuka (最上静香)


Age:14
hieght: 162 cm
weight: 44 kg
B-W-H : 76.0cm / 53.0cm / 77.0cm
birthday : 14 September (Virgo)
Blood type : A
Handedness : Right
Hobby : Tennis
Special skill : Piano
Like : Udon


The blue of The traffic light trio. By first impression one might take her as a stoic and a loner (like Chihaya before character development) because of her harsh word toward producer (“I don’t have a time!”, ”A producer like this is better than none I guess”). But in truth she is still childish, somewhat hot-blooded and really cares for her friends.
The reason she is act harsh toward producer is because her distrust of adult (which she seen as selfish and always look down on children). Which might cause by her really strict parent (as hint in the game and in theater section of million live radio). but if you can prove that you are trustworthy she'll start to open up to you (in a "tsun" manner)
Nicknamed “pity” by fan, because in million radios she always gets the short end of the stick. Also nicknamed “Udon mania” because of her love for the food.


Ibuki Tsubasa (伊吹翼)
Age:14
hieght: 158 cm
weight: 43kg
B-W-H : 85.0cm / 52.0cm / 82.0cm
birthday : 30 July (Leo)
Blood type : B
Handedness : Right
Hobby : Making plans to play
Special skill : Rock-paper-scissors
Like : Beef Steak


The yellow of the traffic light trio. She is quiet similar to Miki, both have quite a glamorous body for their age, have  my pace personality, and have a lot of talent. But she is a lot more active than Miki.
Though she love to popular among the boys and often invite producer to a date , her vision for romance is still childish. Her ideal for perfect man is “The one who gentle enough to share an umbrella with me when it’s rain, smart ,always take me to a date every Sunday, but act cold sometime, yet loved me the most”
She is quite good at get other to spoiled her. And with her sweet voice many producer find themselves unable to refuse her request.
Her reason to become idol is because it looked fun.


I'll start with theses three and will continued with other later if anyone still interested to read. and if you have any character you want to read about first don't hesitated to tell me I'll write about them as soon as I can.

Finish Reika

Kitakami reika (北上麗花)
Age:20
hieght: 164 cm
weight: 47kg
B-W-H : 83.0cm / 58.0cm / 84.0cm
birthday : 17 May (Taurus)
Blood type : A
Handedness : Right
Hobby : Mountaineering
Special skill : Large lung captivity
Like : Driving

Her personality can only described as freedom and quiet childish. She often come up with weird ideal (like give producer a dried fish flavor chocolate in valentine day because it is also a dried fish day in japan) , praise producer i a way that hard to take as compliment (call producer a normal person that looked a bit unreliable though she meant it as compliment since it make her feel comfortable around him), and speak or take unexpected action that surprised other (choose a plastic trumpet as Christmas gift for her parent, mistake a deer for a bird, use a dishwash gel to clean bathroom) but she always meant well.
In short she is a kind-heart person who loves to see people smile but posses a unique way to view the world that can be hard to understand for other.
Nicknamed puppuka-san (ぷっぷかさん (Onomatopoeia for trumpet) by fan. it comes from one of her card where she said she will blow a puppukapu (mean that she’ll blow a trumpet) and tell the producer to do a jajan (don’t sure what instrument she mean)
Reika, along with Suou Momoko are identical to a portrait of character found   in unused data for iDOLM@STER 2 which led fan to believed that she start as an unused character for iDOLM@STER 2

(http://i.imgur.com/63iNxPF.jpg)
The Portrait in question

She also grouped with Mogami  Shizuka, Nonohara  Akane, Kitasawa shiho, and Hakozaki Serika. As a unit named “Crescendo Blue” for season 2 of platinum star live.

Will probably do Karen or Shiho next

Post by: MetalPredat0r on August 31, 2014, 04:58:34 PM
I always saw Reika as the "Goofy Cloudcuckoo Lander Womanchild" character, so my assumptions were right about that!  ;D

I knew about that prototype image. Reika and Momoko are similar to Hibiki and Takane who were considered for iM@S Arcade, but were scrapped and eventually made their proper debut in SP.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Maka on August 31, 2014, 05:58:07 PM
I'll do Megumi, she's one of my faves.

Hibiki was actually in the data of 360, as an unused silhouette ala the president... Well, we don't know if it's her, but the ponytail with a pointy bow is pretty recognizable.

Great translations everyone!
I'm more into the game play aspect myself, but some of the personalities of the girls have really charmed me!

Here's a little bit about one of my favorite girls, Arisa!

Her personality is a bit childish and energetic and has a 'cutsie' kind of way of speaking. She's really obsessed with idols and has a notebook where she keeps notes about other idols and stuff. She likes studying them and is creating something like a 'database' of them. Even when she is doing her idol work, it seems she is preoccupied with thoughts about other idols.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: chaos176 on August 31, 2014, 07:57:45 PM
Finished lovely cowardly lion Karen and The lone wolf Shiho.

Shinomiya Karen (篠宮可憐)
Age:16
hieght: 159 cm
weight: 48kg
B-W-H : 90.0cm / 59.0cm / 90.0cm
birthday : 27 August (Virgo)
Blood type : AB
Handedness : Right
Hobby : Aroma Therapy
Special skill : Poker Face
Like : Bathing

Though she  might give an aura of someone who've confident in themselves. Karen is actually a shy and reserved girl (like Yukiho may be even more) the reason she dress in a flashy way because she think if she dress in such a way she’ll become less shy which evidently don’t work so far.

She also has a low self-esteem, always refer herself as simple and have nothing that standout (which very wrong just look at her three size)

The reason she become an idol is also similar to Yukiho in that she want to change herself, but Karen also want to become a hope for every girl that have a  similar problem, a proof that however low self-esteem their might have they can change themselves for better. In short a cowardly lion (which also actually a role she had in event “Idol school culture festival”)

(http://i.imgur.com/fNpqgr9.jpg)
A̶ ̶l̶o̶v̶e̶l̶y̶ ̶a̶n̶g̶l̶e̶ Haruka Dorothy and cowardly lion Karen

She rumored to have a smell fetish because of her hobby and the fact that after producer become close to her she’ll said that his smell calm her down.

As of lately she often paired with Haruka. Because in event “idolmaster cup 4” she form a duo with Haruka, and in both of their card for the event depict Haruka help Karen clam down and tried to sheer her up after they lose to Oogami Tamaki and Kousaka Umi.





Kitazawa Shiho (北沢志保)
Age:14
hieght: 161 cm
weight: 46kg
B-W-H : 83.0cm / 56.0cm / 84.0cm
birthday : 18 January (Capricorn)
Blood type : A
Handedness : Right
Hobby : finding picture book that suite her taste
Special skill : Good memory and concentration
Like : Doll

The lone wolf of the million stars. Shiho is in many way similar to Mogami Shizuka, from their cold and stoic look, to their harsh treatment toward producer, and down to their family problem.

Yet the two could be said to be an opposite polar, in that Shiho actually want to work alone or at least don’t want to rely on other if she can help it. And similar to Shizuka, This personality most likely clause by family problem, but in Shiho case it came from a lack of father presence since early childhood (While Shizuka come from having a protective and strict one). It’s unclear what happen to her father but His absent force Shiho to help her busy mother take care of her little brother, which made her used to do thing by herself.

But even though she act like that, she does have a sweet side , although she mostly show it to her little brother, but if producer managed to gain her trust she’ll show a little of it to him too. also if you look at her hobby and her favorite thing you can clearly see that she still a child in her heart

Her lack of father presence in life also made Shiho yarn for a substitute, reflect in her comment that she want producer to act in a more dandy way like president Takagi. and her interested in older man.

Shiho popularity start to raised when The movie come out, in which to celebrate the occasion Bandai namco had released a voice drama for all character that appeared in the movie as back dancer. And in Shiho case it depict her take a acting lesson from producer Which from among them include act like Shibuya Gal, A cat, CIA’s agent, big sis, An elementary grade maid. And that change her image from a stoic no-nonsense type to become something softer.

In fandom Shiho mostly paired with Yabuki Kana. Most likely because what happen in the movie, and in the event “idol space war” (which start roughly that same time as the movie come out) depict them have their little moment of friendship (in which Kana hug Shiho after finished shooting her scene, and Shiho don't hate it) the paring become popular with the fandom and after that they often refer to if not show to be with each other  via event dialouge.

She also grouped with Mogami  Shizuka, Nonohara  Akane, Kitakami Reika, and Hakozaki Serika. As a unit named “Crescendo Blue” for season 2 of platinum star live.

Post by: Maka on August 31, 2014, 08:01:33 PM
Here's Megumi! This was surprisingly really fun to type up, so I even did a bonus character... (I stole the format used for the other ones)

(http://www.project-imas.com/w/images/4/4a/MegumiML2.jpg)
Megumi Tokoro (所恵美)
Age: 16
Height: 159 cm (5'2", roughly)
weight: 47kg (103 pounds)
B-W-H : 88-56-85
Birthday: April 15th
Blood type (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_types_in_Japanese_culture): O
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Karaoke
Special skill: Remembering people's birthdays
Likes: Her friends
Image Color: Black/Dark Gray

At first glance, Megumi may seem like she'd be a sporty character, but her interests, like makeup, fashion, and accessories, say otherwise; she has a better sense of style than most people do. She's a huge "people person" with lots of friends (and someone who can make friends easily), and hanging out with them (especially at family restaurants (http://www.jnto.go.jp/eng/indepth/cultural/feeljapanesque/family_restaurants.html)) is her favorite thing to do. She also has at least one big brother.

She's a pretty normal high school girl, and uses lots of ~ and music notes in her speech. But she's not the kind of person that's irresponsible or does things halfway; she has a strong sense of duty. She can consider her situations and read the atmosphere well, as shown in her drama track. Matsuri apparently worries that she worries about her surroundings too much. There's kind of a gap between her responsibility and her outer appearance. Megumi also has a mindset of "if it's for work, I'll do it", and doesn't really tend to gripe about having to do embarrassing stuff as an idol, even though her tolerance levels can be tested. 

She'll probably get another song in the new LIVE THE@TER HARMONY series, but for now all we can do is wait. You can download her drama track in English here (https://www.mediafire.com/?xr74o8x3bjfvr)!

(http://www.project-imas.com/w/images/f/fa/Serika2.jpg)
Serika Hakozaki (箱崎星梨花)
Age: 13
Height: 146 cm (4'7")
weight: 37kg (81 pounds)
B-W-H : 74-54-76
Birthday: February
Blood type (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_types_in_Japanese_culture): O
Hobby: Violin
Special skill: Agility Handling (basically training a dog to run a course)
Likes: Black tea and cookies
Image Color: Pink

Serika is a good girl. Well, there aren't any characters in the series that are really "evil" and bad just to be bad, save for Kuroi and CG's Reina, but Serika probably couldn't be mean even if she wanted to. She's lead a sheltered life, and doesn't know what a family restaurant is, that you can drink juice from a can (she wondered where the glass to pour it into was), how to cook, or why men like women with bigger chests. This kind of implies that her parents are the protective type, and her father does worry about her participating in idol activities, but he's happy that she has so much fun singing and dancing. I couldn't find anything about it on her wiki pages, but I think it's safe to say that she comes from a rich family, given her sheltered upbringing, hobbies and likes, and princess-like outlook.

But Serika is aware that she doesn't know much about the world, and asks the Producer to teach her lots of things! She has a very friendly, positive demeanor. It's not a surprise that she was picked to be the first ML representative for OFA!

She has a black border collie named Junior.

Post by: MetalPredat0r on August 31, 2014, 09:23:57 PM
Thank you, all of you so far! These bios are making me love the ML girls more than ever! I always feared that Shizuka and Megumi would be "Chihaya 2" and "Miki 2" respectively, but I can safely put those fears to rest! ^_^!

Shiho..........man, I could write a LOT about her now. She seems like such a tragic character to me because I know PLENTY of people who grew up in separated families and could EASILY sympathize with her. I just wanna go out and just give the poor girl a hug. Easily one of my Top 5 iM@S characters now.

I can't wait to see translations for Noriko, Sayoko, Kana, Umi, Fuka, and Nao but I'd like to assume a lot of you are tired today from so much translating, so I won't bother you guys about it for today. :P

Finished Sayoko

Takayama Sayoko (高山紗代子)
Age: 17
Height: 156 cm
Weight: 52kg
B-W-H: 82.0cm / 55.0cm / 80.0cm
Birthday: 29 December (Capricorn)
Blood type: A
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Breeding hedgehogs
Special skill : Become energetic after sleep for one night.
Like: Friend, fellow idol

At one glace, Sayoko might look like an honor student, which not wrongs but she actually more of a hot-blooded type. Since childhood if she determined to do something she’ll put her whole heart into it and never give up until the last second.

But Sayoko also, though not as much as Karen, lack self-confident, believe that herself don’t have any outstanding talents but also believed that if she put as much effort as she can, she can do anything. which might be the reason she'll do her best at everything.

Sayoko always take her glass off when she work, which she said that by doing so she leave her weaker self along with the glasses. It’s seemed that to Sayoko her glasses are a symbol of weakness. But there a downside to this, since she didn't actually wear any contact lens when take her glasses off, and with her poor eyesight she can’t tell a different between person and a tree even at close range.

She also seem to made a promise to become a famous idol to someone she refer to as “that child” but there no any information about him or her yet. Though they seem to know each other since childhood since in summer festival event Sayoko made a comment that “that child” always invites her to one, but gave no further detail other than that it a thing of a past.

(http://i.imgur.com/jMhu1rn.jpg)
"I won't rest even if it the holy night or a holiday. I've made a promise to that child that I'll become a famous idol no matter what!"

Sayoko also, even though belong to vocal categories, seem have a talent in acting. She can almost really become the role she acts. Though this talent seems to shine the most in anything horror-related. She can even suppressed her own reason when the role call for it, fandom depict this as she can remove light from her eyes anytime she want.

(http://i.imgur.com/2Gxnxq3.jpg)
This card have caught many producer off guard at night.

(http://i.imgur.com/XLo5gpK.jpg)
""I am destrudo...I...Thy all are my enemies. I am dark sailor there nothing that my destrudo sword can't cut though" I'll act while forgot all reason"

Her families consist of her parents and her little brother. And unlike always diligent Sayoko, her parent is a carefree and quite goofed.

Special iDOLM@STER edition of bi-monthly magazine “Febri” which contain interview with staff of iDOLM@STER OFA, Cinderella girls, million live. Reveled  that Sayoko actually intended to be an classic idol but since they already have Haruka for that role, Sayoko become hot-blooded determiner instead.

will probably do one more girl later

Anyways, I was wondering if I if it would be okay to add some of these summaries to the wiki. I would have to make some minor changes to make room for grammar, but these would be great under the personality section of their pages.

I didn't think they had official ones. Their pages on the Million Live site only give their profile information.
Really, even 765 or 876 don't have official profiles other than what's on their profile cards or in DLC summaries.
Fan summaries are probably the closest we're going to get...

Feel free to do so. And sorry about the grammar, English is not my first language.

Are these summaries official ones?

apart from the basic info, Most of these come from what fan stitch together from card's text and event's dialogue. So there might some error in it.

and here Kana.

Yabuki Kana (矢吹可奈)

Age: 14
Height: 155 cm
Weight: 43kg
B-W-H: 77.0cm / 54.0cm / 76.0cm
Birthday: 18 August  (Leo)
Blood type: A
Handedness: Right
Hobby: made lyric about anything
Special skill: Chorus
Like: Sining at the rooftop

Kana is a 14 year old girl who love for music, especially singing, might rival even Chihaya, as long as she can sing she is happy, yet there one problem, namely she is a tone deaf.  Whenever she starts singing any animal in the vicinity will start running and other people will cover their ears. Kana herself are aware of this problem and always try her hardest to improve her skill day and night . (and it seem to work since in THE IDOLM@STER LIVE THE@TER PERFORMANCE 08 she give quite a good performance)

(http://i.imgur.com/Sazst5U.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/O0nXB4q.jpg)
An example of her singing skill.

Kana has a bright and positive personality suite a girl her ages but had a complex toward her own signing’s skill and will express her own insecurity from time to time. She also can be very clumsy, put a salt into coffee instead of sugar, or wear her coat outside-out.

And while her singing skill are… still underdevelopment. Her talent in playing clarinet are on par with a professional. She even been scouted once. She also good with sport, always play soccer with the boys in her elementary year, could kick the ball out of stadium, and in baseball she could outrun the ball itself.

There used to be some argument between fan about whose Kana actually admired between Haruka and Chihaya.  In the game she called Chihaya “The singing princess of my heart” , while in the movie it’s Haruka she show admiration to. though most fan just accepted the "all version of iDOLM@STER are a parallel world to each other" explanation.

Since the movie come out and the The “Idol Space War” event had started she almost always be seen together with Kitazawa Shiho in event. Part of it might because this paring has become popular within fandom after that. (although her first interaction with Shiho are in "Idol unit tournament" event in July 2013)

She has one parrot name keru-chang. Also quiet a crybaby (Mochizuki Anna once scare her into crying in a test of courage event, she cry when imaging her parting with producer) and dislike natto (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natt%C5%8D)

Today (September 2) is Toyokawa Fuuka birthday. so I'm gonna write her's next

Kana's so cute, you really want her to succeed. I kinda think she's a better "main ML girl" than Mirai, tbh.

I have to agree. In fact, I think Million Live has a more interesting cast of secondary characters than lead characters. Mirai and Tsubasa seem a bit....flat compared to Shiho, Karen, Kana, or even their friend Shizuka. Its a common issue with some forms of media where the leads tend to be the least interesting of the cast and the secondary characters tend to steal the spotlight in fans' eyes in comparison. Not saying Mirai and Tsubasa are bad, but they just don't have as much going for them.

I think that because a character like Shiho, Kana, karen and Shizuka had personal problem that made you want to cheer them and care about them. which Mirai and Tsubasa lack.

and by the way I spot a mistake in Sayoko's section on Tvtrope. She don't wear any contact lens on stage or any time at all.

After do a bit more research into game's archive I can say with confident that she definitely not wear any contact lenses on stage . It a wonder she can perform so well without accident. Must be some sort of hot-blooded power.

And I'm forgot to add that her favorite food is taiyaki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taiyaki)

also the fact that Kana consider herself a sommelier for Throat lozenge.

Finally finished Fuuka.

Toyokawa Fuuka (豊川風花)
Age: 22
Height: 162 cm
Weight: 51kg

Birthday: 2 September  (Virgo)
Blood type: O
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Donating blood
Special skill: hold breath
Like: Cat
The bustiest of the million stars, Fuuka is an ex-nurse turn idol with the hope that she’ll be able to give hope and courage to peoples, as well as to make them stop looking only at her breast.

Fuuka has a gentle and kind personality. Always tried to look after other idol and producer. but that also made her unable to refuse a request from people, even if it embarrassed her.

While many other busty idols are either don’t realize their own sexiness or use it as their own weapon, Fuuka consider her breast a source of embarrassment, given that people only look at her breasts wherever she goes. Thus its make her wish for a more classic idol image, but to her disappointment and Frustration, most of the work producer finds for her are a sexy ones.  And with her gentle and quite easy to persuade personality, Fuuka often find herself unable to refuse those work and end up doing it while complain about how embarrassed she are, and how she really want to do a more normal work. Though, as of lately her definition of what is sexy seem to start to change. some producer perceived this as the "training" has progressed nicely.

(http://i.imgur.com/nu8M7ob.jpg)
She consider this costume innocent.

Nicknamed “muchipoyo-san” (むちぽよさん/mean something along the line of chubby and sexy body) it comes from one of her card name.

(http://i.imgur.com/ENZPBzW.jpg)
The card that give her nickname. It's should explain what muchipoyo mean better than I can.

She has an older sister, know a lot about soccer since she used to watch a match with patient when she stills a nurse. Also, her breasts are still growing ever year, much to her chagrin.

Sorry for not made it clear. it's a joke that said the reason producer find nothing but sexy work for Fuuka is because he want to "train" her to stop being embarrassed and do sexy work without complain.

 I'll do Yuriko next.

The slot for next event's card just being revealed, by the way. It's as following

Vocal: 2 SR slot for Arisa
Dance: 2 HR slot for Yayoi
Visual: 2 SR 2 HR for Fuuka and Karen not sure which one is SR. but I would bet on Fuuka since she one of the Eternal Harmony unit

Wonder what event it'll be

Finnshed Yuriko!

Nanao Yuriko (七尾百合子)
Age: 15
Height: 154 cm

B-W-H: 78.0cm / 56.0cm / 80.0cm
Birthday: 18 March  (Pisces)
Blood type: B
Handedness: Right

Special skill: Pen spinning
Like: Ohagi (A Japanese sweet)

The book worm of the million stars. Yuriko is a girl who love book very much, she can read any genre of book as long as it’s interested her (she read Bradbury, Dazai, Tolkien, Poe, for example), though her most favorite genre seem to be fantasy and mysterious. And like most book worm, She not good at sport and dancing.

Yuriko can be shy around stranger but when among her friends, or any book-related (or just something that stimulated her quite wild imagination) topic comes up, her energetic and cheerful side will come out and often talking about book non-stop. She once wrote over 100 pages review of a book as homework. And feared at library as the “Wild express train of the library”.

Similar to Otonashi Kotori, Yuriko had a habit to lost in her daydream sometime, except that while Kotori daydream are all about shipping people around her, Yuriko are more of “what if something from a fantasy novel happen to me” kind of daydream. This lead her friends call her an old-type Chuunibyou (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Chuunibyou).

Once become close to producer, she’ll be very attach to him. Even unconsciousnessly replace the protagonists of every book she read with producer.

(http://i.imgur.com/Y72i2P8.jpg)
Surround by book and with producer in front of her, Yuriko is in her Paradise.

(http://i.imgur.com/Pbo3Rph.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/1m4s5qw.jpg)
Yuriko can be very lively on stage, or while acting.


Yuriko’s producer sometime called themselves “Warrior of the wind”. Which come from one of her daydream quote.


She also a gamer, which lead to her friendship with another quiet gamer Mochizuki Anna. They often play MMORPG together, in which she seem to play a more supportive role while Anna was either Tanker or Damage-dealer. Her in game name is lillyknight.

Her goal for becoming idol is to become an idol who, like a great book, continued to moved people even hundred year after the author had gone.

Nicknamed “Yuriyuri” by her friends.

She did have a nice leg and definitely not a tomboy

She is a terrible cook, once she tired to make Christmas cake; it turns out to have elasticity like a Gummi candy.

Post by: chaos176 on September 04, 2014, 06:15:21 PM
Finished Tomoka. It's longer than I think.

Tenkuubashi Tomoka (天空橋朋花)
Age: 14
Height: 156 cm
Weight: 41kg
B-W-H: 80.0cm / 56.0cm / 79.0cm
Birthday: 11 November (Scorpio)
Blood type: AB
Handedness: Left
Hobby: make fan happy
Special skill: quarrel
Like: Cute folding fan
Tomoka is a young girl who acts and speaks in polite and refined way. She called her fan a piglet because “it’s cuter than call them a lost sheep”, and regard herself as they Virgin Mary.

To explain what Tomoka really like can be quite a complicate task. At first glance she looks like a refined young lady, but when she opens her mouth, what comes out is a word of polite but insulting world. And couple with the fact that Tomoka called her fan “piglets” and talked about how happy they are to be dominated by her, it’s easy to assume that she is a sadistic girl. Which might not be entirely wrong but I don’t think that it entirely true either.

First of all, sadistic person is someone who inflicting pain,psychically or mentally, on other for the sake of they own pleasure, but look at her hobby; make her fan happy. And there many moments in the game that show Tomoko really loved her fan and work hard to please them. That not something a sadistic person would do. So one could say that the way she treat her fan is just a way she show her love, strange and twist it might be, but love nonetheless. and because she really believed that they happy to be dominated by her.

Couple that with the fact that she always kind to fellow idol and help them whenever she can. It showed that she not just a sadistic girl who looked down on other, but really what she claims herself to be, a holy mother who give love and hope to the lost and the pitied. It’s just that she gives those love by become someone who they can worship and served. And in return she’ll give them unconditioned love, like The Virgin Mary.

(http://i.imgur.com/DIrLwLO.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/Q9YUtIP.jpg)
the card that show her kind side

In short, Tomoko is a kind girl who love all people equally like a holy mother, she would like nothing more than the world that everyone can get along happily with each other, but also believed that the only way the world can become such a happy place is by her domination over everyone as the holy mother who give love equally to all but also demanding worship and total loyalty from all.

Her image song “Maria Trap” also shows what she really is quite nicely (though this song is quite hard to interpret, so I might be wrong here). The song is about the two sides of “Maria”, the kind and lovely “Maria” and the twisted and dominatrix “Maria”. And the madness that comes from conflicted between those two sides.

Her personality might come from the fact that she is loved by everyone she meet since her childhood, and it hinted in the game that she might be Christian( her house own a chapel, said thing like “the lost sheep”, “the voice that cried out for (her) salvation”). With might or might not influenced her ideal.

Despite her personality, Tomoko still had a more normal and childish side, which she sometime show to the producer if they become close.

(http://i.imgur.com/SCWzO45.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/IOGcynE.jpg)
the rare moment of her childishness.

There are actually two group of her fan, one is “the piglet”, and other is “the sky knight’s brigade”. There no information about how different the two groups are, fandom assumes that piglet is a normal fan, while the sky knight is a selected elite fan who takes direct order from her.

(http://i.imgur.com/faQgq8w.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/dTM4F6D.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/TaKrd8i.jpg)
The sky knight brigade

Tomoko seem to be interested in Haruka, she called her cute on and looked happy when Haruka called her Tomoka-chan THE IDOLM@STER LIVE THE@TER PERFORMANCE 02 CD. also hinted in various event's dialouge.

I can't find any source that Tomoka called her female fan a puppy. Nor can I find any part of Marie trap mentioned how men are inferior. And I don't think the all about me trope belong there, her affection to her fans seem to be a real thing as implied through a few event dialogue.

I'm also found translation of Marie trap lyric on this site wiki to be inaccurate as well, though I don't think my English is good enough to translated a song lyric.

Well, most of it actually. I can only give you a very rough and literally translation though, someone that better at English will have to polish it.

囚われのマリア様
崇められるほどに自由を失った

should be something along the line of

 the imprisoned Marie who has been worship to the point of losing her freedom

やめて 惑わせて
来ないで 抱きしめて
聞かせて 言わせて
終わらせて 動かして
愛してる

this part should be

stop, let's me deceive you
don't come, embrace me
let's me hear it, let's me said it
let's end it, please made it move (as in to made it continue, opposite of her previous line)
I love you

綺麗でしょう 強いでしょう
さぁ汚してみせて
貴方にとって唯のマリアで善いわ
幻を 永遠を 抱くように求めてよ
罠と知らずに

should be

are't I beautiful? are't I strong?
try to defiled me
I'll gladly be your's only Maria
(you) yearn for the illusion and eternity
without knowing that it's a trap

「退屈な疑いは 未来を産まないよ」と
貴方は優しいのに 側にはいてくれない

should be

[A boring skepticism won't give birth to the future]
you are kind, yet you won't stay at my side.

完璧とは終わりのことよ
完成とは絶望のことよ
眩しさの裏は冥界の様
月に見下されている様
凍った心のまま貴方が欲しい
美しいままで乱れてみたい
嘘を愛して貰いたい
嘘を見抜いて貰いたい
信じないで

should be

A perfection is the end
a completion is the despair
what lie behind the brightness is like the underworld
The moon look down on us
I want you while my heart stay frozen
I want to become (disarray? disturbances? don't sure which one is more appropriate, crazy or mad might work too) while stay beautiful 
I want you to love my lie
I want you to see through my lie
Please don't believe (in my lie)

叫ぶ胸は 貴方の背で震えた
嫌よ どこにも行かないで

my heart (that cried out? shouting?) is tremble at you back
Please don't go anywhere

傷ついて 傷つけた
理性は雲の向こう
硝子の仮面は割れ マリアも泣いた
欺かれ 欺いて 二人は闇で気付く
「罠だった…」

hurt and be hurt
the reason (as in the ability to reasoning) is lie hidden behind the could
the mask of glass had shattered. even Maria is crying
deceived and deceiving we noticed in the dark
[it's a trap...]

兎の歌 蝶が躍る
夢に溶けてく
これは醒めない レクイエム

should be

The butterfly dance to the rabbit's song
melted into the dream
this is a requiem that (you? us?) won't awake  from

表裏の濁りさえもマリアは許す
裏切りも 愛してく 茨の鎖を背負う
もう戻れない愛の罠に
狂わせて…

should be

Marie shall forgive even the impurity of both side
She'll love even a betray and will bear the chain of thorn.
drive me mad at the trap of love (that it's impossible to returned from)

and that all part that I'm sure it wrong.  if anyone noticed error in my translation. please noticed me.

I'm on the same boat. I want ML to get some attention around here, especially after a year passed and people have gotten over it by now.

As for Tomoka, I have found some translations here (http://millionlive.wikia.com/wiki/Tenkubashi_Tomoka) that refer to puppies, so that's fine. I can edit All About Me to be a subversion as its assumed at first but ultimately she does care for others. I'll do that once I get home as well as add in more info that comes up throughout the day.

I'm just take a look around that wiki and found so much mistake, for example that quote about puppies, what she really mean is that if producer don't work seriously she will set a dog on him (alternately, she could mean that she will persuade him to do it seriously, but knowing Tomoka it's would most likely be the former).

Finally finished Matsuri-hime.

Tokugawa Matsuri (徳川まつり)
Age: 19
Height: 163 cm
Weight: 44kg
B-W-H: 85.0cm / 59.0cm / 85.0cm
Birthday: 4 February (Aquarius)
Blood type: AB
Handedness: Right
Hobby: collecting manga
Special skill: acting
Like: grilled marshmallow, Nudibranch
An 19 year old girl who like to called herself a hime(princess).

Matsuri is another complex case. She had a rather…colorful personality. She always talked in a fancy way. Refer herself in third person (Matsuri, Matsuri-hime, or just Hime). Act like a cheerful and innocent princess, oblivious to the way of the world. But she also had talent in…pretty much everything she tries her hand on. For example, in soccer event she do a hat trick with a knuckle shot, in baseball she do a homerun and triple play while claiming that she didn’t anything about baseball. In cycling race event she takes the lead while humming and don’t even drop a sweat.

What she normally talk like.

Yet, there is some hint that not what she really is, that she had much more deep than just an innocent princess image she always act like.

(http://i.imgur.com/ywvkCjb.jpg)
"Producer-san When Hime let's the lantern float away, It's feel like Hime's wish will reach the sea. ...Ho? what did...Hime wish for? ...The happiness of my important friends and you...I guess"

Firstly, while she always acts oblivious, she actually always observed her surrounding, and always takes care of her fellow idol. Like how she worried about Megumi who always prefers to let’s her friend shine while she support them form shadow, and advice her that it’s possible to take more spotlight while still helping her friends. She also directs producer attention to an idol that needs it.

And about how she doing great at everything while calming that she just does it normally, there are some hints that she actually trains herself very hard beforehand (though, that don’t make her achievement any less amazing). And she might be force herself to act fine while she actually very tired.

(http://i.imgur.com/GsTFZI6.jpg)
"It was such a fun festival right? producer-san. Ho? It's very fun? that a bravo! then ... my effort didn't go to waste then."

Finally, about her princess image, that most likely to be just an act. when producer get close to her and she start to open her heart to him, she’ll drop that act sometime. When that happens, her way of talking will become more normal and mature (from “Matsuri-hime” to just “I”). It can be assumed that Matsuri is a very wise, matured and caring girl who for whatever reason decides to act like an innocent princess. (Though with her special skill: acting some fan thinks that it might actually be the other way around)

(http://i.imgur.com/dlbODxA.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/MgqSCQ9.jpg)
A glimpse of what she really is

Matsuri also don’t like to talk about her family name (Tokugawa, which is the same as the family that rule Japan as the shogun from the end of sengoku era to the end of edo era (almost 300 years), which made fan think that she might be a descendant of this family) said that it not important.

(http://i.imgur.com/ZJANKOQ.jpg)
her saying her full name might be a sight that she start to open her heart to producer.

(http://i.imgur.com/nRXfzSo.jpg)
"Producer-san, the last song is a quiet and heartfelt song. it's for my important fan and  to the gentle you who melt the snow in my heart...."

Matsuri also had one little sister, who she seem to love very much, as reveled in summer festival event dialogue that she catch all goldfish in catch the goldfish stand for her sister.

According to her in game conversation with Emily, Matsuri currently live in “foreign land 30-mintue away from the office by train”. And her room is full of manga which she regard as a bravo! textbook.

Matsuri regard Tenkubashi Tomoka as her equal and rival.

In fandom Matsu, with her almost superhuman talent at everything, is regarded as god-tired character (or a final boss) that can be used in both serious and comedy situation.

Matsuri along with Tanaka Kotoha, Toyokawa Fuuka and Emily Stewart made a cameo at the end of The movie.
(http://i.imgur.com/eai15eK.jpg)
(I'm also heard that Shibuya Rin made a cameo somewhere too, but can't find any pic)

It's take me quite a long time to write about her. since she is a complex character. and I want to get everything as right as I can. I'm hope that I just accomplished that. but if anyone notice any error, please notice me.

on an unrelated note about current event (Idol game festival) : Karen seem to really have a smell fetish, she ask producer to let's her smell his scent since it clam her down, the lingering smell in his handkerchief can rise her tension to the max anytime. also, the developer give more fuel to HarukaxKaren shipper with Karen keep a ribbon that Haruka gave to her as a lucky charm, and want to show Haruka that she can do very well in a dance game.

Making me love Matsuri more than I already do! I'll get onto editing her section as soon as I get home because errands.

As for Rin's cameo, I can probably find a good picture online.

Maybe Nao and Minako could be next to finish off the movie crew and Kotoha and Elena to round off their unit with Megumi. Sorry if this is too much.

Post by: chaos176 on September 07, 2014, 11:32:59 AM
Finished Minako and Nao.

Satake Minako (佐竹美奈子)
Age: 18
Height: 158 cm
Weight: 45kg
B-W-H: 86.0cm / 54.0cm / 82.0cm
Birthday: 22 March (Aries)
Blood type: O
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Fighting game
Special skill: Cooking
Like: Long telephone with friends

Minako is a cheerful girl who loves to take care of other.  She is what most producer regard as a perfect wife material; she a great cook since her home is a Chinese restaurant, she can do all  housework, and she also quite open about her affection toward producer (like give him a right to name their child as a Christmas gift, speak and act like it's already been decide that they'll marry each other in the future). Couple with the fact that she really love to take care of those she like, to an extend that to said it’s her happiness in life might not be an exaggeration. Any man that marry her is pretty much guarantee a happy marry life…..If he fine with become fat, that it.

Minako prefer her man fat, like really fat. Reasoning that a man must be strong to protect his family, and what is a strong man? A man with a large body! And how can a man become large? By eating a lot of her food! Thus, she always plans to increases producer weight for the sake of her happy family plan, by what she do best, cook high calories food (especially a Chinese food) in great quantity. And by great quantity I mean enough to feed dozen people in one meal. She also try to made producer avoid any physical activity, said that the calories will run away. Her love for fat man might be the reason why she good with character with Grappler style in fighting game.

(http://i.imgur.com/bulCLmm.jpg)
While other bride might settle for a smaller first bite, for Minako it can only be "first gigabite"
   
Her personality made many fan regard Minako as one of the character that most likely to turn into a yandere (the other notable character is Tanaka Kotoha. Though Minako is more regard as the type that will kidnapped and imprison her love interest just to be the one that can took care of him. While Kotoha is regard as the type that will commit suicide or murder if producer love someone else).

(http://i.imgur.com/aDWyvKM.jpg)
Minako most likely didn't consider that to be a large bowl of rice.

All in all, apart from the fact that she love to feed anyone she like, be its producer or fellow idol, great quantity of high calories food. And try her best to turn producer into her ideal man for her happy family plan. Minako is a normal, cheerful and kind heart girl who absolutely love to take care of other.

She had a little brother, and had a tendencies to said “wasshoi” when happy or excited.


Yokoyama Nao (横山奈緒)
Age: 17

Like: talking with friends

A cheerful and energetic girl from Osaka who speak in Kansai dialect. Nao is what considered to be a stereotype Osaka people, like always keep some candy on herself, though she not good with tsukomi in boke&tsukomi routine. Nao is not a very bright girl, prefer to take action than thinking, and had great confident in her own stamina. She also very forgetful, often forgot that she had a lesson, sometime she forgot even what she just said a few minute ago.

(http://i.imgur.com/Cl7dX68.jpg)
Sometime Nao even forgot that she in a middle of work.

Nao also a harapeko (a character who can eat a lot and eat often, like Takane). Evident by the fact that she wears a shirt that had harapeko write on it, a few of her card depict her eating something, and she often complains that she hungry.

(http://i.imgur.com/mRJV06I.jpg)

She had one older brother who is a soccer athlete, as reveled in soccer event that she asks some advice from her brother, unfortunately, in that event she end up playing a goalkeeper, render his advice useless.

About Matsuri's the ace trope, It's more like "secretly train yourself very hard till you can do well, and act oblivious when you just do what consider a miracle even by pro" than a sheer accident.(though that still mean that she had a great talent at almost everything)

also Tomoka din't call her female fan a puppies, that translation you found on ML wiki is wrong. she just said that if producer don't work seriously she will set a dog on him. (「プロデューサーさんったら、真面目にやらないとワンコをけしかけちゃいますよ~♪」)

Well, many translation on the ML wiki are, as far as I can tell, wrong. some even have the opposite meaning of what really said.

maybe after I done with these summaries I might tried to correct all of that.

Finished Kotoha and Elena

Tanaka Kotoha (田中琴葉)
Age: 18
Height: 157 cm
Weight: 44kg
B-W-H: 79.0cm / 55.0cm / 78.0cm
Birthday: 5 October (Libra)
Blood type: A
Handedness: Right
Hobby: take a bath
Special skill: Fencing
Like: Ice-cream
Kotoha is a very diligent girl with passion for acting.

(http://i.imgur.com/lSojU7n.jpg)
Kotoha often forgot herself when acting

If one had to describe what kotoha like in one word it would be “an honor student”; diligent, take everything serious, give all work her absolute best, and just seem to perfect at everything. Yet, she actually had low self-confident, often said that she had no any real talent (may be except for acting), and somewhat fragile mentality. This made Kotoha easily pressures by her work and accumulating a lot of emotion stress. Which made her broke in to tear from time to time. Like in event “Idol Symphony” which Kotoha had been made leader of wind instrument group, the responsibility and lack of self-confident lead her to broke into tear in front of Megumi, feeling that Megumi is more suited to be a leader than her.

(http://i.imgur.com/HLBCyQm.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/8kOAHBk.jpg)
Few of Kotoha card depict her crying.

Fortunately, in those times, her two best friends, Megumi an Elena (and producer), are often there to comforting her.

(http://i.imgur.com/JLgvJyJ.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/rywORfg.jpg)
Kotoha hang out with her friends

But work is not the only thing that gives her stress, her feeling for producer also cause her so much stress. Because her lack of self-esteem made Kotoho unable to confess her feeling but also made her stress herself to look good in producer eyes. This lead to made many of her dialogue with producer sound like she gonna broke down anytime soon. Like in Christmas event when producer lean her his coat she asked him whether he only kind to her because she is an idol. Or in event “Idol Symphony” which when producer praise her that she so good at her job and that she’ll be fine even if he not there, it made her feel down and later confess that she actually tried her best because she want producer to recognize and praise her and said that he need Kotoha by his side. This lead many producer to regard Kotoha as the idol who most likely turn into yandere if producer love someone else.

(http://i.imgur.com/HDQowhz.jpg)
According to Megumi, this is Kotoha face when she really angry with you.

Kotoho also a leader of acting club at her school. And quite a tomboy when she is little which is the reason she practice fencing

Shimabara Elena

Birthday: 26 October (Scorpio)
Blood type: B
Handedness: Right
Hobby: party
Special skill: samba dance
Like: have fun with everyone

Elena is a half Japanese-Brazilian girl. She live in Rio de Janeiro until the ages of 6 before moved to Japan, which not only made her can speak only a little bit of Brazilian-Portuguese, but made her also somewhat not fluent in Japanese too.

Elene is very energetic and friendly, which made she not good with any formality. She also had a kind heart and care for her friends, part of the reason she always act energetic is because she want to made her friends smile.

And although she lives in Brazil for only 6 year, Elene has a great love for football and carnival, she also wants to do a samba dance regardless of place and time.

Elena just love carnival and samba dance

Elene is a close friend with Megumi and Kotoha, the three of them often be seen hang out together.

So Elena being Brazilian IS true. Why do the Japanese make Brazilians so likable? Elena, Natalia, Blanka, Eddy, they're all so damn cool!

As for Kotoha......... I can say she's another favorite of mine. Like Shiho, I can definitely sympathize with her given how many times I've fallen under stress. Makes you wanna root for her in the end. Very nice.

With all these bios, I might actually like ML's cast over CG's even though I like CG's cast, ML's cast feels more three-dimensional to me. They have back-stories, personalities, things that define them as people, and neither of them need some sort of gimmick to stand out. Chaos, I know your goal is to help win people over with Million Live, and with that in mind, consider it a success on my end. You've opened me up to these characters and I cannot thank you enough. I also like to thank Maka and animagic for their translations and contributions too. You guys all rock!

As for who's next: Konomi, Rio, and Chizuru, please.

I'm glade that I can made you feel that way.

Thank you, truly.

and here Chizuru
NIkaidou Chizuru (二階堂千鶴)
Age: 21
Height: 165 cm
Weight: 50kg
B-W-H: 85.0cm / 58.0cm / 86.0cm
Birthday: 21 October (Libra)
Blood type: B
Handedness: Right
Hobby: checking fashion magazine at cafe
Special skill: never forgot people names and faces
Like: being looked at with eyes full of admiration.

Chizuru is a 21-years old woman who likes to act like a celebrity, and not doing a good job at it.

While Chizuru tried her best to speak and act like a celebrity, she often slips out at someplace, every time. Like laugh in a high pitch voice but end up coughing, or speak and/or act in some uncelecrity-like manner and panicky said some excuse ("A crowded train is sure a pain… t…that what I heard!"). And what her goal to become an idol? To become top idol then hold a lavishing party at a karaoke in front of train station. Needless to say, only more innocent idols like Yayoi or Hinata believes her.

(http://i.imgur.com/AVprxea.jpg)
"Ohohoho! I already know Paris very well...but since we are here, let's go sightseeing together. let's hurry! I said Hurry!" if you look into her bag you'll see a France guide book with so many post it.

Although Chizuru like to act like a celebrity, that doesn’t mean she haughty or act in a “holier than thou “way. She actually a generous person, always kind to everyone and often look after her fellow idol especially a younger ones (while act like a celebrity, of course), often give out a Breaded cutlet made by her fami….I mean a High quality Breaded cutlet from a restaurant near her house to her co-worker. Chizuru also very diligent, never miss out a lesson and give all work her best effort, even if it only a back-dancer work. And she always show gratitude to everyone who help her.

(http://i.imgur.com/fgnatl3.jpg)
”u..ufufu... look like my charisma had capture every heart in this shopping district.I don't really know what they mean about a thank for Korokke" her house seem to be in a shopping district.

(http://i.imgur.com/uFtKpFz.jpg)
"The shining raindrop! an elegant and refined coat! look like the heaven had bless my stage! I also had to show gratitude for all of the audience" Chizuru always grateful for all her fan.

Fan speculated that her family runs a meat shop business. This comes from this card.

(http://i.imgur.com/rDvVYrO.jpg)

If you looked closely at the camera man on the right, you’ll saw that he wear a shirt with a”Nik??? Senik???” print on it. This lead fan to believe that it actually is “Nikaidou Seinikuya(Nikaidou fine meat shop)” and that camera man is someone in her family or at least know her house. Couple that with a fact that she often gives out meat-related good to her co-worker and that she the one who handle dismantling all captured animal in survival island event, this is most likely that case. But there is no absolute proof on this.

(http://i.imgur.com/xGw3gRp.jpg)
"Today I(here Chizuru use"watashiku" which mean "I" and it's mostly used by a high-class people)... the people that like a family to me (here she switch to just a normal "watashi") are come to watch this stage. I dedicate this song to everyone who always support me" Chizuru seem to be well-loved at her neighborhood. (and if you looked to the right you'll see the same camera man from previous card)

(http://i.imgur.com/YV3piNJ.jpg)
"Thank you for your hard work, producer. ...I had made you a chocolate today. It's not of a high quality or grandly...but it's a special chocolate made only for you" When Chizuru not tired to act like a celebrity, she actually quite humble.

Nicknamed 'Niseleb" by fan. It's a combined of nise(fake) and celebrity.

Chizuru also seem to still study in a university. as evident by this card where she tired to gather a vote for her in miss campus contest.

Finished Konomi and Rio.

Baba Konomi (馬場このみ)
Age: 24
Height: 143 cm
Weight: 37kg
B-W-H: 75.0cm / 55.0cm / 79.0cm
Birthday: 12 June (Gemini)
Blood type: A
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Watch north American drama.
Special skill: mahjong
Like: Japanese’s sake

The oldest among the million stars, also the third shortest idol. who always tried to appeal that she is an sexy adult.

While Konomi always tried to act like an adult her age, her height and youthful look made most people never take her serious. Which always frustrate Konomi to no end. And to made matter worse, although she want to go for a more sexy and adult image, most of the work producer find for her are for kid, like dress in a grade school uniform.

(http://i.imgur.com/TNH7rqG.jpg)
and it's really fit her.

Aside from her look and her habit of saying that she is a sexy lady, Konimi is very reliable adult, often seen take care of younger idol (which is every one of the million stars), like in “Idol Symphony” event where Konomi give advice to Suou Momoko who had been appointed leader of percussion team to talk with her teammate about what she want to do. She also very professional, will do her work to the best of her abilities even she don’t like it. Konomi also good at office work and offer to lean a hand when the production needs it.

(http://i.imgur.com/JED5Qit.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/o0LPvAL.jpg)
She also can look sexy sometime
   
Konomi is close to Momose Rio who called her “Konomi-nee”. Also Makoto seem to respect her as a master of cuteness and called her “Master Konomi” although Azusa seems to think that Konomi is younger than her.

Konomi has one little sister who unlike her, growth normally.

(http://i.imgur.com/hmy9nT3.jpg)
"Ehー!? even though I bring a sexy girl as request, It's an NG? Why?....Do you know why, Knomi-san?" why, indeed.

Momose Rio(百瀬莉緒)
Age: 23
Height: 168 cm
Weight: 46kg
B-W-H: 84.0cm / 57.0cm / 84.0cm
Birthday: 21 November (Scorpio)
Blood type: A
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Yoga exercise
Special skill: Make up
Like: cute and sexy costume

The second oldest among the million stars. Rio is a woman with sexy body and she knows it. And while she likes to use it as her weapon, the results are…. Not as good as she hopes.

According to her own word, Rio never popular among the boy. And she doesn’t know why. But that most likely because, while had a very attractive body, Rio don’t know how to charm men at all, thus her tactic are all always too straightforward that it’s drive men away instead.

(http://i.imgur.com/Cx3TZmo.jpg)
“Here, a chocolate take it ♪ … you don’t have to be so shy…what? Its turn you off? Why! Doesn’t thing like this made man happy!?” most of her charming tactic are always like this.

And although she has a carefree personality, like most adult idol, Rio can often be seen help take care of younger idol.

Rio also close with Baba Konomi, Rio seem to be very respect Konomi, even called her “Konomi-neesan”, that might because they have what other don’t have. Konomi , despite have a childish body, is a reliable adult. While Rio, though have an adult body, lack in maturity.

(http://i.imgur.com/O32H1hY.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/7CYdv69.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/FLN8ghF.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/QF1U81k.jpg)
Rio is much more sexy and attractive when she don't tried too hard.

Probably had zero experience in love.

So Rio is a gender-flipped Johnny Bravo. That is brilliant. X)!

I guess my speculation on Konomi being diagnosed with Dwarfism is false because of her little sister. Oh well!  ::)

For the reverse, how about the youngest next? Iku, Momoko, and Tamaki.

The second youngest of the million stars. Momoko is former child star turn idols who, while call producer “onii-chan”, act in a high and mighty way. Often said that since she is a senior in industry and producer should just follow her order. and that lead to some producer called her 'sempai" or 'Momoko-sempai"

(http://i.imgur.com/Raiz328.jpg)
All of that are the scripts of show she had a part when she was a child star.

Momoko, while one of the youngest idol, probably had more experience in entertainment industry than any of her fellow idol. And that made her know about the less than beautiful part of the industry. It’s no surprise that Momoko always act in such a bitter and arrogant way toward everyone as she believes that everyone is tried to use her for their own end. Thus, Momoko always tried to put a distance between herself and her co-worker, said that they only had business-like relationship with each other.

And to made matter worse, Momoko doesn't have a happy family either, since her parents seem to be fighting each other all the time, it’s no wonder that Momoko hate family event like Christmas, and in event “Idol Symphony” when producer said that he’ll invite her parent to come watch her, Momoko replied that it’s unnecessary since they will only fight each other.  It’s also hinted that Momoko’s family is just a normal happy family before she debut.

(http://i.imgur.com/ErhvaGn.jpg)
"um...Momoko...won't...lose...Will tired again with onii-chan...and together with mom and dad...again..." 

(http://i.imgur.com/sriEZgc.jpg)
"「How can I fille the hole in my heart? please tell me...」please tell me onii-chan.... silly Momoko, there no onii-chan in this script"

But despite her attitude, Momoko stills just a child, and a kind one she is. She often show concern over her fellow idol and act in a way that suite a child her age from time to time. Future more, Momoko also want to have fun with other kids, but since she busy with being child star Momoko never had much opportunity to play with other kids her age, and that made her never learn how to make a friends. and when she open her heart to producer she'll really trust and attract to him, she'll also show her childish side more often, though never completely ditch her high and mighty attitude.

(http://i.imgur.com/mf4di1B.jpg)
That not something a child her age should said

(http://i.imgur.com/GWit9JA.jpg)
This is the first time she ever play fireworks

(http://i.imgur.com/dUyuYvn.jpg)
"mo...Momoko already graduate from kiddie cloth, alright? Momoko only wear this because it's a work!...and didn't happy at all!"

(http://i.imgur.com/7ChfxCV.jpg)
Momoko ask to sleep together with producer because everyone already sleep, and no she didn't feel lonely at all. just want to talk with onii-chan for a while , really.

Though her life until now was less than happy, after become an idol Momoko life seem to take a turn for a better. As she managed to become friend with Nakatani Iku, and as she start to trust producer and her fellow idol, a smile of happiness start to return to her face and she start to become more open toward other. As evident in “summer festival” event where Momoko told producer that she had talk to one of the girl that come to the festival and found out that the girl also like to collect decal so she trade her decal with that girls. They also promise to dance a bonfire dance with each other. Megumi and Konomi also comment that Momoko smile when she dance with other kids are really an innocent smile that suite a child her age, Konomi also add that Momoko had that smile too when she with producer.

(http://i.imgur.com/gKhoS69.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/HVdpdOH.jpg)
Momoko have fun with her friends.

Momoko also have a great pride in her acting skill, boast that she can become any character if she feel like it.

Momoko keep a small step ladder with her at all time, said that It’s an item for speak with adult as an equal and because she don’t like being look down from above. and she will become panic if she can't find it. it's also what Momoko's producer somtime called themselves(踏み台/Fumidai)


Also, the preview for Julia's (Praline) and Serika's (dream color train) song are out.

http://youtu.be/pBxjzK-DkWs (http://youtu.be/pBxjzK-DkWs)

Julia's song is so good Serika's song is as cute as ever. I can't wait for the CD to come out.

Finished Iku and Tamaki

Nakatani Iku (中谷育)
Age: 10
Height: 142 cm
Weight: 37kg
B-W-H: 72.0cm / 52.0cm /73.0cm
Birthday: 16 December (Sagittarius)
Blood type: B
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Watch anime
Special skill: wake up early
Like: Mom

The youngest of the million stars, don’t say that to her though. Since Iku hate to be treat like a kid.

Iku is quite a precocious child, she has confident that she could do any work without any help from producer, and she want to decide the detail of her lesson.  But she still a child nonetheless, as she still show to be happy when she do a work she like, and cry when she frustrating. Or how she becomes so happy when her mother praises her. And lot of her dialogue also shows that Iku is still very much childish, no matter how much mature she tried to act.

(http://i.imgur.com/WNhwngx.jpg)
Iku hate it when she cannot play outside because of rain.

(http://i.imgur.com/SIPN4dS.jpg)
Iku want to prove that she can do a cooking show.

(http://i.imgur.com/2jAGQ6O.jpg)
She love that costume, proof that she still a child after all.

Iku is a close friend to Suou Momoko, their often refer to each other in event’s dialogue, and Momoko once stay a night at Iku’s house to practice their role in “Idol high school” drama. she also showed to get along well with other young idol.

(http://i.imgur.com/TBQ3zqB.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/lNKLlyr.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/qaZIyAn.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/iOlfykb.jpg)
Iku and her freinds

(http://i.imgur.com/leVUv4X.jpg)
She also very diligent.
   
On a side note: her voice actress (Harashima akari) is just like real life Konomi; her height is only 139c.m despite already 24 year old. IkuP also normally regard as the most pervert of all producer, their convention center (in game forum) is regard as the den of the wicked. And by the way, despite being the youngest idol Iku has the same burst size as certain high school idol.


Oogami Tamaki (大神環)
Age: 12
Height: 147 cm
Weight: 39kg
B-W-H: 76.0cm / 51.0cm /77.0cm
Birthday: 29 April (Taurus)
Blood type: B
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Exploration
Special skill: Throwing stones
Like: Athletic Land (doesn’t sure what it is, seem to be some kind of game though)

The wild child of the million stars. Tamaki seem to come from some backwater place, as she is seem to be growth with nature, like often swim in the river and capture lizard and insect. There also no other kids her ages near her neighbor, which made her interest to become an idol because she heard that she can make many friends.

It wouldn’t be too far fetch to called Tamaki the most child-like child among the younger idol; she is innocent, energetic and full of curiosity. And since she growth up in a backwater place, Tamaki is quite a wild child as she like to play outdoor, like sentai show and want to be the red, and she also love all kind animals (include frog and insect). This made her get along especially well with Kousaka Umi and Ganaha Hibiki.

(http://i.imgur.com/zEiVVww.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/qImTnzw.jpg)
Tamaki also love sport

(http://i.imgur.com/RwBj0Te.jpg)

Tamaki is quite attaching to producer; called him Oyabun (親分 roughly mean boss), often request him to play with her, and show him animals she captured.

(http://i.imgur.com/BkbNljE.jpg)
Tamaki show producer the cat she win a fight against to producer.

Tamaki also show to (slowly) start to hit puberty, as she show to feel embarrass to be seen in a dress but also show interest to become more girly, and she seem to start to become aware that her feeling for producer might be something more than just an innocent feeling. Though she still just a child for the most part.

I'm regret doing a research on the perversion of IkuP. I could feel my sanity point drop like a stone, someone please give me brain bleach, a lot of its.

Also, Happy birthday to Mogami Shizuka, May you butt monkey image become weaker and may you have a lot of udon to eat.

I was wondering if you're doing the CGs (the ones with voice acting first though) too after you're done with this. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to the rest.
Oh yeah, I'm curious about that IkuP stuff. Though I probably don't want to go deeper either.

That's the camera(wo)man. the one who take picture of idol during work (and probably when producer play gacha as well) and give it to producer as a card. used to be seen as an annoyance since she used to appear during work with so much frequently, but that had been toned down since.

I did feel that she was one of the multitude of nameless or faceless characters in the series that only serve one purpose. Tis a shame for Camerawoman here, though. She seems like she could be a bit more as a character and potentially be friends with the staff at the office.

Well, in this card you can see cameraman sit with Kotori and president at the front row. So I think it safe to assump that she also friend with staff, if not 765pro own cameraman

The returnee from America. Ayumu is a girl with great skill in dancing, but not so good with anything else.

(http://i.imgur.com/lHfibUq.jpg)
Dancing her greatest skill.

(http://i.imgur.com/DxeSfml.jpg)
She achieved this over head by utilized the power of dance step, don't ask how.

As opposite to her dancing skill, Ayumu skill in other area is quite incompetent. She can’t swim, she afraid of height, embarrassed when she has to do something sexy, and if there a pool of water nearby, you can almost sure that she will fell into it. But she always put great effort into improve herself. She also has quite a simple mind, easy to feel down but also easy to feel better.

(http://i.imgur.com/I5xfWmr.jpg)
Can't swim.

(http://i.imgur.com/XnPJgGN.jpg)
Afraid of height.

(http://i.imgur.com/XDT7bH2.jpg)
tend to fell into a water, whether by her clumsiness or bad luck.

Although, Ayumu had study aboard in America when she was in high school and said something like “Oh my god” when she surprised, Ayumu actually can’t speak English, body gesture was an the only mean of commutation back when she was in America. Ayumu also don’t want to talk about her time in America.

She also showed to get along well with Makoto, they are in the same unit in “iDOLM@STER cup 2”, show up to dance a congratulation dace on Makoto birthday. Ayumu also on the receiving end of Makoto’s “prince charm” at the end of LTP11.

Birthday: 4  July (Cancer)
Blood type: O
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Gardening
Special skill: rightly predict weather
Like: Granma

The girl who speak in northern dialect. Hinata is a kind soul whose pureness could rival even Yayoi.

Though her specific birthplace still remains unrevealed, Hinata most likely come from Hokkaido, one of the most northern islands in Japan, where people still mostly live with nature. And that might what shape Hinata personality; she is kind, honest, simple, pure and innocent and quite mature. She show kindness to everyone, don’t mind if she lost as long as she do her best and everyone had fun, never doubt any one. In short she is a saint.

(http://i.imgur.com/VokgAg6.jpg)
Hinata really a honest soul, try her best to find a customer who forgot his chance among the crowd.

(http://i.imgur.com/GHSgxfm.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/1hLFr4z.jpg)
And she has a beautiful smile too
(http://i.imgur.com/mJ0WTv5.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/XIdvjQf.jpg)
 
Hinata also one of the few idols that believe Chizuru lies and called her Chizuru-ojousama, and she is the only idol that called Momoko a “sempai”. Hinata also called ami and mami “master” and “teacher” too.

Since Hinata come from Hokkaido, she still not used to the city life, thousand upon thousands of people cramp together in one area and how their seem to be in constant hurry, also the fact that city has so much building made her feel like if she ever lost among them she couldn’t find a way out ever again, so sometime she ask producer to hold her hand so that she won’t get lose.

Anna Mochizuki (望月杏奈)
Seiyuu: Shiina Natsukawa (http://myanimelist.net/people/23405/Shiina_Natsukawa), who had a few bit roles in Aikatsu. So far, her most prominent roles seem to be Kanna in Witch Craft Works, and Nonoka in the upcoming Sora no Method.
Age: 14
Height: 152 cm
Weight: 41 kg
B-W-H: 78-53-79
Birthday: May 31
Blood type: AB
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Online games
Special skill: Typing
Likes: Cute things

Anna is a seemingly-always-tired 14-year-old girl. In normal speech, she uses a lot of "..." and acts very withdrawn and on the mature side, with her only interests seeming to be games and singing. She's friends with Yuriko both online and irl, and games under the name "vivid_rabbit". Even when she's not near a computer, she's sure to be playing games on her cellphone. You'd expect her to be the kind of idol (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Anzu_Futaba) who complains about working and being pulled away from her lifestyle, but...

When she gets into her idol activities or changes into her idol outfit, she changes spectacularly!

(http://i.imgur.com/Q8orbpH.jpg)

She turns into a super-energetic, passionate idol who gives it every ounce of strength she has, often saying "bibi~" to fire herself and others up. I said it earlier, but she's really kind of the opposite of CG's Anzu, who has a similar love of games and a hikkikomori-ish side (and even a similar name). She's a hard worker and doesn't ever give up.  For example, during the outdoor music festival event, she practiced really hard to learn bass so she could be on even the rocker Julia's level. Her only real weakness is that she's kind of a bad actress and can't really do anything other than the "energetic type".

(http://www.project-imas.com/w/images/3/3a/AnnaR4.jpg)
"...Nn... Huh... My turn... Already...? No good, I gotta get going! Yahoo~, it's Anna! The pink team is making a bibi-tastic entrance! Advance, one, two~♪"

(In more recent cards, like this one, she seems to be able to switch her idol mode off and on.)

You could almost say Happy Darling is about her idol side, and VIVID Imagination fits her more withdrawn NEET personality more.

(She also made an appearance in the imas movie, so maybe we'll be seeing her as DLC soon...)

a bit more info on Anna.

Her changing from shy girl to energetic is normally refer to as "switch". which normally on when she work, but can become on when she excited rise too. and she didn't really become energetic, she just force her self to act like that, she still just the same shy girl on the inside. she also work hard on researcher on how she should act as an energetic idol to become as close to her ideal of great idol as much as possible.

her love for game is also second to none, in voice drama where she offer a job to help develop a game, Anna wrote 1 GB worth of text file about her ideal for game in just one night (that like, a billion word I guess)

Anna also not good with study as show in her invitation card where she struggle with English class in one card and sleeping while in class on the other.

(http://i.imgur.com/y1DGmFJ.jpg)
"A...Ann has to read this? e...err...page 39.... ai, wanto, s...somuting?...eh, something? something, t..to... teacher..can I... give up?" remind me of myself in math class, also this card skill is named "he...help me!" in katakana.

(http://i.imgur.com/paxl8F2.jpg)
"Yay...ai, wanto...to, b..be, top idol... my beloved producer is watching...so...Today, Anna will do vividly best too,...zzzzz" This card name is escape from real, and Anna really has gut to sleep in the class like that.

she also can't swim.

(http://i.imgur.com/LPc1yvJ.jpg)

On a side note: take a look at this card

(http://i.imgur.com/O1vZMfv.jpg)

You'll see that Anna is wearing a stealth cloth.  that not just a stage prop. as can see in this pic

(http://i.imgur.com/BfhR3AK.jpg)
You can clearly see though Anna cloth into the paper that Yuriko hold on her right hand. I wonder where she get that cloth from.

No joke, that's pretty badass! Kinda reminds me of how Nitori from Touhou has an invisibility cloak........in a setting that's supposed to resemble Feudal Japan. X)! I always enjoyed when iM@S shows some more fantastic elements in an otherwise mundane setting.

Special skill: slow ball
Like: Idol
The handsome girl among the million stars. Subaru is a girl who love baseball and refer to herself as “ore (俺the manly way to say “I”)”

While Subaru might share many traits with Makoto, they are quite different from each other. Firstly, Subaru don’t have any problem with being boyish (though she admit that she do want to become girly enough to talk about love with other girl) and unlike Makoto, it’s her parent that ask Subaru to become more girly. Subaru also love baseball, often invite producer and other idol to play catch ball with her.

(http://i.imgur.com/PqE6UA2.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/fhcnyla.jpg)
Subaru love playing baseball

Although Subaru still not used to do girly thing. She will give her best to become more girly, like wear cute dress, try to talk in feminine way. though not as extreme as Makoto

Blood type: O
Handedness: Left
Hobby: none
Special skill: guitar
Like: Punk rock
The rocker among the million stars. Julia is a girl who wants to become punk rocker, but sign contract with 765Pro by accident. And since she hates doing thing halfway, and what she really wants is to made people moved by her song, Julia decide to give her best at being idol, she still want to become punk rocker one day though.

Julia really love singing, she always singing when she have free time, and although she like punk rock the most, if request, Julia will sing any genre, be it pop, rap, or even anime song.  And she tends to lost herself into the music she listens to, made her oblivious to her surroundings.

Julia is of course not her real name, for some reason Julia really don’t want to tell her real name. And although Ami and Mami called her Pu-chan, it’s not clear whether that is part of her real name or just come from Punk rock.

Her cooking skill is so horrible that the result is inedible. But in “Survival island” event where Julia had been made a lead chef, Julia had improved her cooking skill vastly.

From this

(http://i.imgur.com/lQiulWD.jpg)
To this

Julia is show to be close with Subaru, often refer to each other in event’s dialogue. Perhaps that because both have problem become more girly as their work require.

Julia also likes to shorten her fellow idol name, like Chihaya to Chiha, Shizuka to shizu, or Hibiki to to Bikky. She also has a good knowledge on astronomy since it quite easy to write lyric about constellation. And she also had her own band outside of her idol work.

On a side note: even though Julia is a left-handed she use guitar that design for right-handed that because she want to used the same model as guitarist she respect. Also, on the first day of SSA concert her voice actress (Aimi) actually play guitar while singing “Ryuseigun” and that made Julia become more famous.

Updated Julia and finished Subaru. It's a massive coincidence that I requested Julia and Subaru together and they ended up being best friends. Next, could you please do Roco, Emily, and expand on Arisa a bit? Very much appreciate it. Also.........

Miya!

Miya Miyao (宮尾美也)
Seiyuu: Choucho Kiritani, who... Hasn't been in a lot.
Age: 17
Height: 156 cm
Weight: 46 kg
B-W-H: 84-58-83
Birthday: April 24th
Blood type: O
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Go, Shogi
Special skill: Strong eyesight
Likes: Sandwiches

"Nice to meet you...! I'm Miya Miyao, 17 years old~! Are you aiming to become an idol too...? Ehe, if I have rivals, I'll have to put in an effort...! Rivals really are an amazing thing~ But, I'm going to be the top idol, so... Eh? You're my Producer? Please don't surprise me like that...!"

"Hmm~ These clothes are so small, I can't fit my head through them~ ...Oh, these aren't mine~?"

For better or for worse, Miya has a very easygoing, my-pace type of personality. Her speech is full of ~ and elongations. She's really spacy, to the point of mistaking a soccer ball for a volleyball... In the Namco Idol Soccer FES 2014 event... While wearing a soccer uniform... What an enigma. If she closes her eyes for more than three seconds, she'll most likely fall asleep. That was in an official profile... Is it a joke or not? We just don't know.

She's pretty much a natural-born boke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossary_of_owarai_terms#boke). Because of her airheaded personality, she would make a great duo with Reika, but the two have yet to appear together. She was put in a "my pace" unit with Tomoka and Matsuri for the new year red vs. white event, however.

(http://i.imgur.com/9NG2yL7.jpg)

Sandwiches are her favorite food, and she seems to be pretty good at making them. She likes to offer the producer them once in a while. I wouldn't say she's a prankster, but she does seem to have a tiiiiny bit of a mischievous side. She's pretty good-hearted, though.

(http://i.imgur.com/KhYmITF.jpg)
"It's a good day for sandwiches~ I made a portion for Producer-san as well, so eat until you're full, okay~?"
(http://i.imgur.com/gdErZ1S.jpg)
"Ufufufu~ Ghost Miya's almost complete~. I wanna hurry up and see everyone's shocked faces~. Yup, I think I did pretty well~."

Fans like to call her Myaomya, which is basically slurring her name together. Also, in her original idol version art (http://i.imgur.com/lgFrFrM.jpg), her hair was the wrong color, but it's been fixed.

Unfortunately, she's in the bottom tier of how many cards she has, with 24: she's tied with Iku there. Makoto has the least at 22, but I don't think Makoto is lacking in popularity. She doesn't seem to be too popular... She needs more love, she's really cute and funny.

(http://i.imgur.com/bEajVeKl.jpg)
"Ah, Producer-san, you can see our theater from here~. You can see it better from right here, so go ahead and sit next to me. ...Huh, I got nervous~."

Three month ago actually, It's come out at 1 chapter per month.

Well, they sort of appeared together in 2014 soccer event, in event dialogue Reika mention that she come up with a plan for this match with Miya, they called it "Reimya plan".

She also very popular with old men, especially those who in the same Go and Shogi club with her.

 on an unrelated note: Iku will got another SR in the next Gacha (a reprint one, most likely Christmas gacha). Miya also has the same birthday, age, Bloodgroup, and Handedness with Shimamura Utsugi from CG.

Finished Emily and Roco

Emily Stewart (エミリー)
Age: 13
Height: 156 cm
Weight: 41kg
B-W-H: 74.0cm / 54.0cm /76.0cm
Birthday: 1 August (Capricorn)
Blood type: A
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Karuta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karuta)
Special skill: Japanese classical dance
Like: Green tea
The Yamato Nadeshiko (http://www.sljfaq.org/afaq/yamatonadeshiko.html) among the million starts. Emily is a (most likely) British girl with great love for Japanese’s culture.

(http://i.imgur.com/RSYqCtC.jpg)
Emily do a classical Japanese dance.

To say that Emily has great love for Japanese’s culture might actually be understatement, Emily is really serious about truly become the Yamato Nadeshiko and tried her best  to act as one, but perhaps because she just moved to Japan recently, her standard of what is consider Yamato Nadeshiko and what not are somewhat strange, like how she consider idols a Yamato Nadeshiko, or how she tried her best  to not used any foreign word (except when she excited or surprised) like called producer “shikakenin-sama (仕掛け人様/instigator) or called a pom pom “sukedachitamafusa (助太刀玉房/ mean something along the line of “a ball that used to assist/cheer”) , and she used to think that she had take off her shoe and do a seiza (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seiza) on the opening of concert.  but since she actually had a cheerful and energetic personality, from time to time, especially when she surprised or Happy, Emily will become excited and slipped out a English word or two (like ”Wow!” or “excellent!”). She will feel embarrassed when she comes to herself though.

Emily couldn't contain excited when wearing traditional Japanese wedding dress

But she also look good in western wedding dress.

Emily’s Japanese is taught by her parents and her Japanese dance teacher.

(http://i.imgur.com/SL2NydV.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/tLjfFQX.jpg)
Emily really like green tea.



Roco (伴田路子)
 Age: 15
Height: 154 cm
Weight: 42kg
B-W-H: 78.0cm / 57.0cm /77.0cm
Birthday: 1 March (Pisces)
Blood type: AB
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Create thing
Special skill: can walk with eyes closed.
Like: Pigeon
The artist among the million starts. Roco is a girl who dream of become great artist with her own genre of art.

Like many artist, Roco has a weird habit that hard to understand for other. The most apparent one would be her way of speaking; Roco is like to fill her sentence with English word, some time to the point of almost impossible to understand. Though her English skill is not that good and still require dictionary from time to time. And the fact that when she really concentrate or surprised, she’ll speak in normal way, suggest that she doing this on purpose.

(http://i.imgur.com/0l8PFLe.jpg)
Roco need dictionary for a word like "very tried" even though she can use word like "actualization"

Roco’s artist skill cover really wide range, she can draw, sculpture, design and create her own cloth, even build the stage set by herself.  But like many artist, her creative sense is hard to understand for normal people, in fact, most of the time they don’t even have any idea what she just create. She also like to act the moment she has inspiration, regardless of place and time, or object that she want to remodeling (or in her own word roconizing), whether it’s a borrowed costume, Drama’s set, or the office itself. Roco also like to keep up with fashion, often change her accessory from card to card. Though, she always keep her yellow headphone with her all the time and when she has to take it off, she give it to producer while tell him not to lose it since it very important to her.

(http://i.imgur.com/wfmd4HD.jpg)
Roco design and made that dress herself.

(http://i.imgur.com/UNmlubU.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/ZshKWM5.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/etYCEoK.jpg)
Roco roconizing the office to suite her dress or her artist vision.

(http://i.imgur.com/eiXEeM9.jpg)
Roco can also speed ice sculpting

Although Roco always act confidently, Deep down Roco actually feel lonely, since her weird quirk and her hard to understand artistic sense often alienate her from the crowd. That made Roco very happy when someone praised her art. She also shows her weak side to producer from time to time.

(http://i.imgur.com/0B05nQ0.jpg)
Roco actually not used to have her art praised.

Roco often paired with Subaru, most likely because Subaru like to drag Roco to play outside despite her protest.

On a side note: while Roco always refer to herself as ”Roco” and it’s also write on her card name and profile, some fan like to think that her name actually is Handa Michiko. This come from the “spring music festival” event where Takane called Roco with her full name (伴田路子) and Roco replied with “Please don’t call Roco by real name”. Real name, not full name, real name. Couple that with the fact that her name kanji can be read as Michiko, fan theory was born.

Roco also the only idol beside Akane to appeared in a background of non-awakened card of a whole set of Gacha (snow festival gacha, while Akane is in idol camp gacha)

Also this is most likely a model for her headphone.

Birthday: 7 June (Gemini)
Blood type: AB
Handedness: Right
Hobby: Collect idol data.
Special skill: look though idol disguise.
Like: Family restaurant’s dessert
The idol otaku idol. Arisa is a energetic girl with obsession to idol.

Arisa is…love idol very much, may be too much. She often paparazzi them, her computer is fill with data about idol, even one of the reason she want to become idol is to be able to meet with a lot of other idol.

(http://i.imgur.com/PWNqKMd.jpg)
"s...himsuite! so much idol in shimsuite...! Arisa want record everything she see today, made it in to video and save it on computer!" her love for idol can look a bit... dangerous sometime.

(http://i.imgur.com/fhgj6kI.jpg)
Arisa update her idol data.

(http://i.imgur.com/wCdRxoM.jpg)
Arisa stal.... I mean observe idol in her day off.

But she also really serious about become as close to the idol she admire so much as possible, all of the data she gather is use for that purpose (and her own enjoyment) and she always give all work her best effort. Arisa also lack self confident, often think that she is nothing when compare to other idol. but since she love idol and really enjoy her work, Arisa continue to give her best effort at being idol.

(http://i.imgur.com/8DutqsU.jpg)
Arisa applies the result of her research on this card.

(http://i.imgur.com/WWsSXgF.jpg)
Arisa had give so much effort to become as close to the character she had to cosplay as possible, include clear the game the character appear in, eat her favorite food, study her body langue.

In the recent event (game festival). It’s reveled that her mother can programming a simple game. She also seem to quite close to Ritsuko, most likely because they like to planning they action by the data they have at hand. and if producer become close to her, Arisa will also star to "observe" him too.

(http://i.imgur.com/2Ymn8UC.jpg)
Arisa very afraid of ghost.

Arisa might think that she not as cute as other idol, I beg to differ.

Blood type: AB
Handedness: Left
Hobby: skipping
Special Rollerblade
Like: Pudding
 The annoyingly cute idol among the million stars. Akane is the girl who always said that she the cutest girl on earth.

 Akane is…well, annoyingly confident. Often talk about how she cute and how she great at everything nonstop, encourage “pro-chan” to praise “akane-chan” at least one time a day. And she seems to never read the atmosphere at all. Though, it’s seem that she actually can read atmosphere well, but decide to act this way so that she can stand out and to make people around her laugh.

(http://i.imgur.com/lc0JfUH.jpg)
"hey hey, pass it to me! pass all of it to me! To Akane-chan! and only to Akane-chan! pass pass! papapapapass! I said pass it to me!" an example of how annoying she can be. she play defend, by the way.

(http://i.imgur.com/tCjPXLc.jpg)
She also often request Producer to pet her head.

(http://i.imgur.com/XcnsIos.jpg)
""Well, I only solve 4 case today. 4 big case! in only! one day! ..it's not enough right?"  ...how about a character like this?' she still annoyingly even when acting cool character.

Akane also one of two idol who once appeared in a background of non awakening card of the whole set of gacha, the other is Roco. In Akane case it’s the “idol summer camp” gacha, while Roco is the “snow festival” gacha. She also has a mascot made in her likeness.

Well, she can be really cute some time.

Makabe Mizuki (真壁瑞希)

Birthday: 27 January (Aquarius)
Blood type: B
Handedness: Right
Hobby: magic trick
Special: Baton Twirling
Like: Crossword
   
The kuudere amon the million stars. Mizuki is a girl who rarely shows emotion on her face and she always wears school uniform when she not works.

Although Mizuki rarely show emotion, it’s don’t mean she is emotionless or a cold person, Mizuki has every emotion like other people and definitely not a cold person, in fact, she actually has a kind heart, it’s just she don’t know how to express her emotion, especially smiling, well. And Mizuki herself is really want to improve that.

Mizuki is also a well mannered, very serious and diligent girl, although her seriousness can be quite comical at time. She also good at puzzle and poker, can do magic trick, and quite handiness. And like Akane, she has a mascot made in her likeness called “Little Mizuki”. But unlike Akane mascot which is only a doll, Little Mizuki has her own dialogue in card, it’s not clear that this is just Mizuki doing Ventriloquism or Little Mizuki is actually capable of speaking (whether by magic or technology).

(http://i.imgur.com/HcZDOa0.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/aS0SAKs.jpg)
She made all of that by herself

shuffle like a pro.

That doll is "Little Mizuki" as you can see she look more expression-able than Mizuki her self

(http://i.imgur.com/ORf8zUI.jpg)
”...soldier like us might just be expendables thing, but even the expendables have their own pride....bring it on, baby" she like in this style most of the time.

(http://i.imgur.com/GHrM3sQ.jpg)
"enemy carries down, mission accomplished. 765th unit, all member survival. mass destruction weapon "Trinity" had been completely destroy. Tonight I'll drink delicious milk....Yay" that yay is of course in deadpan voice.

Mizuki has similar three sizes to certain high school idol, and like that high school idol, Mizuki want to have a glamorous body. She also seems to still believe in Santa claus.

(http://i.imgur.com/Zn2kP87.jpg)
That her letter to Santa.

and here a bonus character (This mostly intend as a joke, don't take it seriously)

Camera(wo)man (カメラマン)

Cameraman is a woman who takes picture of idol and gives that picture to producer as a in game card.

(http://diarynote.jp/data/blogs/l/20130320/100089_201303201614226452_1.jpg)
"That is a nice expression. Please let me take a picture" her only line and character spite in game. and you'll see it a lot.

Nothing is know about her, from her ages to hobbies, some producer don’t even sure that she is woman or man, and since she has only one line of dialogue and one expression in the game,   we can’t tell anything about her personality either.

(http://i.imgur.com/zla2mew.jpg)
rare moment that card dialogue spoke to cameraman.

And as stated above, all of the card in games is most likely a picture she take in universe. And while many of the cards depict idol at work, which is normal and nothing out of ordinary. There are some cards that either should be impossible to take or depict idol at their private time at they own house or alone with producer and they don’t even seem to notice her. That made many producers wonder who the hell she really is, or is she even human at all.
(http://i.imgur.com/DQi1XSo.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/YpYwRDU.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/BdUdTCG.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/shgqesX.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/u3uDsF4.jpg)
How does she take these picture?

Although her relationship with 765pro are not clear, producer speculate that she either a freelance cameraman or 765pro own cameraman.

(http://i.imgur.com/01D7HLC.jpg)
Cameraman sit in a front row with Kotori and President suggest that she at lest know 765pro staff well.. But if she there who take this picture?

On a side note: cameraman used to be seen as an annoyance, since used to appeared at an annoying frequency, and when she appeared producer had to gone though a short flash screen  before they can process, which might not be so bad if producer not in time limit area or used a short time score booster in event. Couple that with the fact that in early day producer can’t automatic sold card that he gain from cameraman if it exceed the amount he can hold, and had to manually sold it or use it in lesson by himself. It’s no wonder that many producer who start early outright hated her. But all of that had been toned down ever since, with her appear rate gone down and producer now can automatic sold any exceeded card.

and with these I complete all of ML character summaries. if anyone spot a mistake please tell me.

I'm wonder what should I do next? translated voice drama? Manga chapter summary? is there anything you like to see translated?

Thanks so much for your help, chaos! I'm definitely more interested in ML now. And there are some idols that I went from "boring" to "cute!" on, like Minako and Sayoko haha

I guess one thing I'm curious about now is character relationships. Like, what characters are friends/rivals/enemies with who?

Hmm, that would take some research, and not all idol have screen time with every other idol. but I'll see what I can find. but for now, what I can remember from top of my head.

Haruka : admired by Karen and Tomoka
Julia : friend with Subaru, get along well with Chihaya since they share a passion for music.
Emily get along well Fuuka in story of Eternal Blue.
Kotoha, Megumi, Elena are best friend.
Rio is respect Konomi, called her Konomi-nee.
Shiho and Shizuka didin't get along very well. well, Shiho didn't get along with anyone. maybe except Kana.
Anna and Yuriko is game buddies.
Subaru often drag Roco around, despite Roco protest. Kotoha (or maybe other idol) comment that "It's take someone like Subaru to make Roco listen to other people reason" (not exact quote)
Mirai, Shizuka, Serika is close friend, part of it because these three are personality of million live radio.
and there the  traffic light trio, Mirai, Shizuka, and Tsubasa. though lately I feel that Tsubasa got less screen time with the other two.
Makoto and Hinata seem to regard each other as sister.

That what i can remember right now. I'll post more later.

Makoto and Hinata refer to each other as sisters? Interesting.

Also, I wanna know more on Mirai and Tsubasa. Their info feels a bit........lacking. Just asking.

and with these I complete all of ML character summaries. if anyone spot a mistake please tell me.

And with THAT, I have finished editing the TvTropes page. Now it's actually presentable! ^-^! Well, okay, I still need to add image songs, but at least its better than the barren wasteland it was these past few months. chaos176, Maka, I thank you guys for uploading these bios, letting me fill in the Tropes page, and all in all learning so much about these girls. I can safely say that the ML girls fit well at 765Pro and I cannot wait to see the seven girls featured in the movie. Thank you so much for your time and I hope for future translations as well as other info on a game I probably won't get to play, but it IS nice to know about. :)!

A demo for Shiho (Ehon) and Matsuri (Carnival Japanesque)song had been post on youtube.

http://youtu.be/FMl9sfvqfjM

I'm  really like Ehon. can't wait to hear the full version.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: MetalPredat0r on September 18, 2014, 04:17:35 PM
Ehon feels more mellow than Liar Rouge. I take ot this is showing that Shiho is calming down and warming up to others?

I feel a bait-and-switch element to Carnival Japanesque. It sounded like it was JUST gonna be a Festa Illumination remix, which would have been SO lazy btw, but it eventually changed into something different. Its actually kinda funny. X)!

The Million Live! characters are so interesting. I kind of wish that there was an ML anime now, haha. Also, I've edited the grammar and sentence structure of a few of the ML girls pages so that they're less choppy. I'll probably do that for all of them, if everyone is alright with that.

How do you change the IP address (proxy server) on your phone so that it's Japanese? (btw I'm using android)  I'm trying to download the Million Live! game but I'm not quite sure how to do that part. I've managed to get GREE to work otherwise (and I've gotten to the Japanese site), but I still can't find the Million Live! game, so I was thinking that could be the problem.

Well, Million Lives! isn't an app game, It's a web browser social game. and you don't need to use proxy on your phone. If you follow these step first.

http://millionlive.wikia.com/wiki/Signing_Up

But I've to warned you. If you don't understand Japanese You'll most likely not enjoy the game. Since in my own opinion, The most enjoyable part of ML lies in its text; card's flavor text, event's dialogue, character interaction, ETC.
and if you can't understand any of that and the game will become just a click-feast.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: millefeuille on September 19, 2014, 09:37:48 PM
Ah thank you! I've followed the instructions on that page, so now ML works for me. I wanted to try it out because there seems to be much debate in the fandom about how good the mobile games are, so I figured that I should cement my opinion on this matter. However, given what you've said, it'll be difficult to have a full opinion since I don't understand most of it, haha. I've managed to translate some bits with google translate so it's a bit easier for me, but it still is a little bit confusing.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: animagic4u on September 19, 2014, 11:09:23 PM
I agree that not knowing Japanese will make the game less enjoyable. However if you like collecting cute art I'm sure you'll still get enjoyment.

while the main focus is on ML girls, I wouldn't said that the original member are just a cameos. sub character would be more appropriate in my opinion. since the two (Haruka and Chihaya) that appeared so far had some impact on the story.

Kotoha and Megumi but no Elena. Who comes up with these?

Haruka's seems more appropriate given she can have connections to everyone in that unit..........except Noriko. That feels out of nowhere.

Hm. The announcer sounds like the host from the Kero Kitchen episode. Anyways, Ricotta's song is HOME,SWEET FRIENDSHIP and Burning Girl's song is ジレるハートに火をつけて (Jireru Heart ni Hi o Tsukete, meaning something like Ignite Into My/Our Impatient Heart.) So, we have unit named after cheese and Miya is the odd fit with the rest of the Burning Girl unit.

EDIT: Platinum Star Live dramas (courtesy of jigglypuff8)
Legenddays - "Something feels off… Let’s have lots of fun together and find out what!"
Otome storm! - "Why the **** is Mirai leader?"
CRESCENDO BLUE - Shizuka: “Let’s work together everyone!” Shiho: “No.”
ETERNAL HERMONY - Chihaya: "I don’t wanna be leader"
Ricotta - Momoka is pissed off.
Burning Girl - Megumi: "Don’t feel like it, bye."

and I kinda like the plot summary of the new event (School beauty contest survival)

 "Peace finally come to idol school after days and nights of harsh battle.

 one year ago, after the Armageddon, also know as the culture festival riot that cause by "Virgin Mary " Tenkuubashi Tomoka and "Green Demon" Tokugawa Matsuri had ended. all bitterness between the two was resolved, and true peace come into Idol school.

 Yet, in the middle of never changing daily life someones start to ask a question.

  Do we really wish for this conclusion? wasn't this peace only made us drown in our own depravity? are those days that we suffering as if we're in hell really meaningless?

 No more peace! no more unchanging daily life!

 What this school really need is blood and sweat and a scorching battle. after received order from the "Virgin Mary". The new leader of festival committee "Buddha" Miya made a silent decision.

 October, the month of calamity that everyone waiting for.

 the new "final decisive", School Beauty Contest Survival has began!"

Miya is the top ranking SR

Finally found some time to finished half of chapter one of Million Live! Manga

       Mogami Shizuka is furious. She is a new idol who due to have a live with her fellow newbie idol soon. Yet today just after the school just end, her producer has called to told her that today lesson has been cancel. Displeased with the producer Shizuka decide to train on her own. But the question is where should she do the training? In the class room? Impossible. Outside the building? Out of the question. And there only one place left, the rooftop.
   
(http://i.imgur.com/Lwqxm2Fl.jpg)

       At the rooftop, Shizuka starts her dance training. But couldn’t get a satisfying result even when she covered in sweat. She’ll have her first solo part in the coming live, thus she can’t afford to fail. But just as Shizuka start her training once more a gust of wind has blow and pull apart the cloths that had been hanged on a nearby washing line, revealed a girl in a school uniform singing and do a little dance while doing a laundry.

(http://i.imgur.com/7NVUG9Il.jpg)   (http://i.imgur.com/Hil6Hqwl.jpg)   (http://i.imgur.com/j8Pbrzfl.jpg)
   
       Just as Shizuka start to turn red from discovered that she not alone on the rooftop, the another girl rush to grab her shoulder and ask excitedly.

The girl: That so cool! What that!? Dancing club!? I want to join too!

Shizuka: n…No! you’re wrong!

The girl: then what? Pom Pom! Are you in a Pom Pom club?

Shizuka: that the cheerleader club and I’m not in it. And what are you doing here!?  Laundry!? That must be tiring!
   
        After both of them has clam down the girl introduce herself as Kasuga Mirai from class A and a member of tennis club, track and field club, soft ball club, and Biology club. Shizuka introduces herself back before said that she understand now why Mirai still had to do miscellaneous job despite being 2 year student because Mirai is in a four club at once. She then start preaching that middle school last only three year and thus one has to span it while aiming constantly to a definite goal.

(http://i.imgur.com/Y7eZLzVl.jpg)
   
        Mirai, although surprise that she had been preached all of sudden, explain that she think that if she try her hand at everything she’ll find the one that she like the most, but all of them are so fun that one year had passed before she noticed.

Shizuka: Fun? That your only reason?

Mirai: Yup, what about you? Do you have fun at dance club?

Shizuka: I’m….
   
        Just as Shizuka hesitated about what she should said, another gush of wind has blow and made the hanged cloth around them fluttered.

(http://i.imgur.com/ORsRmFbl.jpg)

Mirai: When all of those cloths moved like an opening curtain I’m feels so excited. Is that weird?

Shizuka: I…. want to become an idol.

Shizuka decide to speak about her dream

Shizuka: I just think it not fair that I won’t tell about myself after all of that parching. I’m only just a newbie, and still can’t sing and dance well, you might thought that it an impossible dream…
   
       But Shizuka sentence has been cut off by excited Mirai.

Mirai: you mean idol as in that idol!? so that dance is for idol!! You’ll dance, right!?

Shizuka: y..yes…

Mirai: and sing too, right! Oh!! I have to ask for autograph!

Shizuka: stop making a fuss already! That why I don’t want to talk about it.

Mirai: s..Sorry.

        After that both of them leave school together. And Shizuka give Mirai a pair of tickets to her live “START” at 765 pro live theater. Those are tickets for her family but they won’t come so Mirai can have it.

Shizuka: but…

Mirai: Ah, Saki-chan, do you want to go to a live together this weekend!?

Shizuka: Listen to me!

Shizuka quickly stop Mirai before told her not to tell anyone at school about this.

Sadly, no. According to her idol episode in the recent TGS event she not good with game at all. but there still a hope since in that event Fuka and Karen had start to discover the enjoyment of video game, so we might seen more idol play video game in the future.

Sadly, no. According to her idol episode in the recent TGS event she not good with game at all. but there still a hope since in that event Fuka and Karen had start to discover the enjoyment of video game, so we might seen more idol play video game in the future.

Good. We could use more idols who play video games. I dunno, its an adorable little aspect, imo.

So there was a poll for a new CD called LIVE THE@TER SELECTION. It was something like the CG popularity poll, and the top 5 MLs would appear on the LTS.

*Corrected* top 5 (in order):
1. Anna Mochizuki
2. Yuriko Nanao
3. Shiho Kitazawa
4. Konomi Baba
5. Emily Stewart

I don't have much info on the CD itself. If anyone could find the details for the CD, that'd be great.

At the lower right you can see HaradaP, director of Tekken series and a fan of Iori. according to his twitter post and in game dialogue he is the one who request Iori to be in Lili costume.

So does this mean Iori should be in Tekken 7? X)!

Also, a useless fun fact: This makes Kotoha the only girl to have cosplayed as two Tekken characters. Here, she's cosplaying Asuka Kazama in the background. She previously cosplayed as, ironically enough, Lili.

it's not confirmed. It's only say that Shiho's family lack father. It's could mean either her parents had divorced, her father has disappear , or like you say dead. though it did give weight to that theory a lot more.

and where did you read about that? I never know that there're place that translated PSL's story.

I asked around on a message board and somebody told me this about Shizuka and Shiho's relationship:

"Serika's dad didn't want Serika out of house after 8 pm every day. Shizuka talked with Serika's dad and managed to make it 8:30 as long as Serika never, ever came late. Shizuka decided to make the training shorter so Serika would get home in time. Shiho was a bit already out of it, she got a bit angry at Shizuka for cutting rehearsals short. Akane and Reika try to keep team unity and make some silly jokes, Shiho thinks nobody is taking it seriously but she actually feels she is the one that should quit. Shizuka gets ready to apologize and tell Shiho everything but before she has a chance P has a private conversation with Shiho and he tells her everything and they reveal for the very first time that Shiho's dad is dead. Shiho apologizes to Shizuka first and she does it with a dumb joke about being AMIGOS because she remembered Rei and Akane's jokes. They make up but Shiho says she still going to win so they're friendly rivals. Shiho prepares an intensive training so that Serika can get home but they still get everything done."

most of that is right, though there a few place that is wrong. first of all Serika's curfew is sometime after 6PM not 8PM and Shizuka didn't talked with Serika's dad. and Akane and Reika make silly joke because Shizuka request them to, hope that it'll made Shiho laugh and open her heart to other member. and P didn't just tell Shiho everything, he take Shiho to a place other members has lesson and let her eavesdrop on conversation between Shizuka and Serika about the curfew.  and finally Shiho didn't "says she still going to win so they're friendly rivals. Shiho prepares an intensive training so that Serika can get home but they still get everything done.".

his fate is unknown. like I say above maybe her parent divorced, may be Mr.Kitazawa is disappearing, or leaved his family for some reason or another, or may be he is really dead. all we know is that for whatever reason he not with his fmaily since Shiho is young.
and that the major reason that made Shiho into what she is right now.
And about Kana's drawing, that what she want to look liked in the future when she become top idol, and Kana really respect Chihaya so I guess it's nature that she want to be like Chihaya.

Speaking of parents, what's the deal with Shizuka's "time limit"? I see no mention of it in this thread or the Wiki yet it seems to come up frequently in her dialogue. From what I understood, she also mentioned it in chapter 3 of the manga. I read in Pixivpedia that people think she made a deal with her dad to become "top idol" in certain time and if she fails she has to quit?

They don't outright say it, but many of Shizuka's dialogue seem to hinted that is most likely the case. She also has to keep a good grade too.

I did, and I can play without any problem. I can't access the game url directly though, but I can still access the game via My Games page. but that year ago so thing might change now.

and there not much point in verified your account, unless you want to trade directly with other producer via the trade menu. but if you want to verified it anyway try follow these step just to be safe.

Well, It's kinda impossible to collect enough stamps for SR ticket just by playing Million Live!. especially, with only 16 hours left now. you'll most likely have to do mission in other game as well.

Another way to get powerful SRs is the friend recommendation events. Those are typically really great.

Momoko sounds so much more mature than your usual 11-year old girl and it shows here better than her LTP song.

Megumi's is surprising in that you don't expect her singing a song like that. It's actually pretty cool! Like Roswell kinda said, her song reminds me of when Miki sings a more serious song, like in Marionette no Kokoro or Tsuioku no Sand Glass.

"HOME, SWEET FRIENDSHIP" is a pop, lively number with the unit's sense of unity that focuses on Haruka. Let's have fun together with everyone!
"Jireru Heart ni Hi o Tsukete" ("Ignite Onto Our Impatient Hearts") is an exciting song with a popularish melody. Let's leave our bodies with burning, boiling impulses...!
"MY STYLE! OUR STYLE!!!!" is a strong, cute song that lives at home, just like Momoko! Let's upsurge in Girl power together!!
"Frozen Word" is a song of Megumi's passionate glimpse. Please listen to my feelings, my chest is tightened.
"Up!10sion♪Pleeeeeeeeease!" is an universal song that feels more of an extension than the previous song. Call & Response the parallel world together!!
"Renai Roadrunner" ("Romantic Roadrunner")  is a straight, rock number. Please try... to catch up with Umi's speed!

In case you were wondering, the idols without Live Theater Harmony units:

765 Idols:
Miki
Yukiho
Makoto
Mami
Azusa
Takane

Million Live Idols:
Hinata
Minako
Karen
Elena
Sayoko
Tomoka
Iku
Subaru
Chizuru
Konomi
Roco
Rio
Kana

Any predictions? It's worth noting that, up until now, no idols who shared a LTP CD have been paired for a LTH CD (so Iku probably won't be in a unit with Kana, for example).

I have no predictions, but I want Roco and Subaru to be together. :X
Oh, that slipped my mind. Duh.

I would love a Karen and Takane group.

In case you were wondering, the idols without Live Theater Harmony units:

765 Idols:
Miki
Yukiho
Makoto
Mami
Azusa
Takane

Million Live Idols:
Hinata
Minako
Karen
Elena
Sayoko
Tomoka
Iku
Subaru
Chizuru
Konomi
Roco
Rio
Kana

Any predictions? It's worth noting that, up until now, no idols who shared a LTP CD have been paired for a LTH CD (so Iku probably won't be in a unit with Kana, for example).

Am I missing something? (like I'm genuinely wondering if I somehow missed something, since I only have one source for listening to million live songs) I'm pretty sure Kotoha, Tamaki, Ayumu, Megumi, and Miya aren't in a harmony group yet either? Also its not really a prediction, but I'd love it if Rio, Tomoka, and Karen ended up together since I like all three of them and they seem like they'd just fit together well. Also, of course, Subaru and Roco need to be together.

Kotoha, Megumi, Tamaki, and Miya are in Live The@ter Harmony groups. Ironically, the SAME group. (Burning Girls). Though Ayumu hasn't been in one yet, so you're right about her.

It's inevitable that Miki's gonna lead a unit. She's part of the main Namassuka trio. As for anyone else, just as AkuAkane said, Rio, Karen, and Tomoka in one unit as well as Subaru and Roco being together.

What's Reika's relationship with her parents? I got a card the other day where her skill was "mother-inherited singing voice", are her parents musicians or something?

Also I knew I was missing someone... Thanks for catching that.

Nothing is know about her parents, except that her mother has a great voice which she inherited from (Why she is in dance category not vocal category  is any one guess) though we could be sure that she has good relationship with them since her christmas show her choose a present for her parents (a plastic trumpet).

Miya's song is really nice. Gives me a somewhat calm island feel for some reason.

Noriko's, I loved. Like, I absolutely adored it. But that might have to do with the fact that I found her LTP song to be pretty terrible, not for the singing, but for the fact that it didn't fit Noriko at all to me. This one at least sounds like something she would actually get on stage and perform.

Plus My Pace My Way didn't fit the feeling of that LTP album at all. Like, two ballads, a soft love song, Nageki no Fraction (which really feels like an autumn song to me for some reason), then this peppy cute song. I mean, variety is nice, but it's out of nowhere.

Motomu sounds like an early 2000s anime opening to me too, so I like it for that reason, heh.

According to chaos176, it's a gift for 700 players only in the top 500 in the "Miss Con survival" event and the lucky 200 who used a set A lottery ticket via playing the Gacha. This most likely means no CD cover which I'm waiting for.

I'm kind of lost on the theater songs.

 When using songs for lives in theater mode, the popularity/music note goes down after 5? rounds, with the exception of Thank You, it seems like. Less popular songs net you less fans when you use them. Is there a way to get it back up? I have songs that I haven't used in ages that haven't rebounded in popularity.

Also is there a boost for using an idol's image song? I've been saving songs from idols who don't have a LTH song yet (like Roco and Azusa) in hopes that it does.

Do you unlock a group song like Legend Girls by unlocking all the solos from an album? EDIT: Never mind, just unlocked Marionette wa Nemuranai that way.

Popularity will reset at the start of new season (around this Thursday for this season, I think). and it's not only Thank You that goes down at a slower rate, all unit songs does (in case you don't know you can unlock unit song after you unlock all of that unit member's song)

I don't sure about whether image song has a boost effect or not, but unless you have a really good card for each idol, I doubt it'll matter much. beside, you can reach 1 million fans by just run a little bit of each event in the season anyway, and 2 million is for those who willing to pay for event's item.

and by the way now we know which idols will be in the 5th season (Takane, Miki, Karen, Elena, Sayoko, Tomoka, Subaru, Chizuru, Rio, Roco) how do you think they will grouped these idols together? Personally, I hope that it's will be like this

Takane, Karen, Chizuru, Rio, Elena (The mature and sexy unit)

Miki, Sayoko, Tomoka, Subaru, Roco (The middle school unit)

How did you get to trade???

I would link you to the million live  wiki page that had.... that information. But I can't seem to find that page in the new version of it.

I'm pretty sure I remember the steps correctly though.

1. Change your Gree region back to US.
2. Confirm your account using your normal phone number.
3. Enter the code sent by Gree.
3. Connect to a JP VPN to change your region back to Japan
4. You're done!

If you're the spending type, I think confirming makes it harder to buy points, but I'm not honestly sure. (because I don't spend)

Let me know if it works... I might add that to the wiki page

Alright, I'll give it a try later. I tried inputting a experimental number on a side account, but since it was a US number it didn't work.

I'm not verified, but I've already spent money on the game. You can do it through paypal, among some other payment options (but paypal will probably be the easiest for foreign users).
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Tafira on January 27, 2015, 01:35:57 AM
Did you change back to the U.S. region?

Gree has a different center for sending out confirmation voicemails.

If you do it correctly, you'll get a message from Gree in Los Angeles (I think)

I did this ~3 months ago so it should still work.

(I got lucky in a plat draw and traded the card off for ~270 spark drinks)
Now I'm trying to make them get me as many decent SR's as I can.
Which is why I'm debating on getting the card I posted.

Miki being leader is more predictable than John Cena winning a match.

Karen being leader is fantastic. I thought it would be either Takane or Tomoka, but Karen being one is great to help her character development.

Also, our friendly neighborhood Kuroi reminding us that Roco/Subaru will never happen and you 765 loving plebs should stop your worthless dreaming. Seriously, largely missed opportunity from Namco, but hey at least I get a new Karen song soon.

I just got done listening to the LTHs, and... They're really pushing the feeder angle with Minako, aren't they...

But it's really awesome how much the seiyuu have improved, and how the songs themselves have gotten a lot better. Like, LTP had some of my fave songs, but it also had some real clunkers.

- Fuka used to work in a hospital; it was later revealed that she was a nurse.
- The reason she quit her previous job is unknown and she doesn't like to talk about it.
- Her motivation for becoming an idol is giving people strength and courage.

Honestly, WHY, Fantasista Carnival, and maybe Fake Self are the only ones I've been disappointed with this batch. LTH has some eh songs, but they're almost all a huge improvement on the LTP songs.

Also, little question... I haven't read the ML manga yet, but why is Mirai wearing Kana's outfit instead of her own in almost every panel I've seen of it?

Because Mirai was brought into the live concert as a last-minute substitute for a passed out Shizuka and they didn't have enough time to give her her own outfit, so she's borrowing Kana's.

 I got a 3 bp once... in like at least 1500 draws. (CENTERPIECE PRIZE MY BUTTOCKS)

I just started playing and this game is seriously addicting. I personally like it more than CG to be honest in terms of character design and art style.

I was kind of like that. I tried out CG and didn't really like it because it didn't really have much of the original cast, same with the art style. (touhous anyone?)
Do you know the round-about method of verification? It allows you to use the bazaar, which even for free members, is of some use you can get 1 tradable spark drink a week, and you can get easily get 1 from each event with a little bit of work. A lot of event cards sell during the same event period, as people want to finish the event theater missions. Afterwards they don't usually sell that much and usually devalue.
Sorry if I rambled a little bit.

That sounds kind of strange honestly XD.
During the PSL events there's always a huge crowd... at least from what the animations show.

No, 765 pro didn't go bankrupt. They merely use all the money they collect in the past 2 month to prepared PSL finale. Nothing indicate bankruptcy, in fact this screen is a comedy at Takagi expense. 

You should check whether the information is true or not before post it, as it can spread unnecessary rumor and misunderstanding, doubly so if said information come from 4chan.

876pro are cameoing in an upcoming event. (in cards, not their own cards)

My current deck composition makes it really convenient to take on another Mirai card (and she is my favorite after all)
so I'm ready to go heavy on this event and use all my candies if necessary.

Ha ha... these commus are going to make caravan an interesting experience to say the least.
OH GOD WHICH ONE DO I CHOOSE N-


more impetus to learn Japanese I suppose

The new unit also made me realize what a lack of diversity I have in my cards. Literally no Reika or Iori cards. haha ^^;...

Hahah! This is great. And I can't help but notice we can't tell if Ryou is dressed like a guy or not.

Mirai looks like she's gonna ram into the bottom of the basket with the ball. ^_^;;

Yumeko cameo when?

I wish for more of these to happen in ML. Gives it connection to the main series. I'd love to see cameos for Leon or Jupiter at some point.

Also, Ryo, you're WAY too close to Tsubasa. Like, WAY yoo close.

./inb4 rant about how ML rehashes original character archetypes?

Like any series that's introduced a new cast hasn't done that too. It's like if they didn't do that, people'd be all like, "Azusa brought me in with her ufufufu and her ara ara ara and there's no one like that anymore so dropped!"

... So I guess you got a rant about people ranting about rehashing character archetypes. ^_^;

./inb4 rant about how ML rehashes original character archetypes?

I wouldn't got that far since Chihaya and Shizuka (if that's what's being implied) became idols and have issues at home for different reasons.

Chihaya became an idol due to her passion to sing and in memory of her brother, Shizuka became an idol because she's always been a fan of idols and wanted to prove her father wrong.

As for their family issues, Chihaya's parents have been fighting since Yuu's death and Chihaya couldn't handle it, thus moving away. Shizuka has a massive schism with her overprotective dad wanting to take too much control over her life and Shizuka outright despising that.

Certain archetypes are similar, but the characters aren't outright the exact same.

Exactly! Shizuka may have family issues like Chihaya and seem distant like Chihaya, but her version of "Aoi tori" not even close to Chihaya's! ;)

Shizuka has also picked up a reputation as an Udon junkie and ends up with the punchline a lot.
I think Shizuka has a softer personality than Chihaya anyway, aside from when talking to Shiho.
Are they really that similar, I wonder.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Johnrevenge on April 27, 2015, 04:48:40 PM
Also Shizuka likes to be closer and protective towards her fellow idols, and she only shows distance and distruts towards adults, because of the bad relationship she has with her father. Chihaya at first was distant towards everybody, as the only thing she wanted to do was singing when she joined the agency (later Chihaya opened more towards everybody of course ^^)

The only reason for comparison is because main Blues of their respective trios. Any main Blues are gonna be compared to Chihaya, although, imo, the only main blue that's really close to being Chihaya is Kaoru from SideM, and that's mainly due to similar backstories.

Speaking of colors, Miyao's Image Color was changed.

Until recently she had the exact same orange Image Color as Chizuru but it was changed to a light brown.

I think it was supposed to be this in the first place?

That gave me a good chuckle! Archetypes aren't a bad thing in that sense. It'd be hard to follow a character that has a really disjointed and not relatable personality.

ML really does do some unique card sets. There's awesome mecha, heaven vs. hell (where Makoto is Satan for some reason), cop drama, a bike race, Hell's Kitchen, and a lot more.

Meanwhile CG is doing the same staples... Serafuku, swimsuits, maids, athletic stuff, animals...

I love CG but ML's card selection is nothing to scoff at.

I imagine the electric hooks sink into your shoulders or head and the stake finishes the job (if you are lucky enough to just die).

Agreed. The Cinderella Girls card sets today were nice little athletic meet cards, meanwhile Million Live went ham with freaking MECHS! I adore how Million Live just does whatever the hell it wants with its card sets and it not only leaves you guessing what they'll do next, but when it happens it leaves an impact. I STILL get goosebumps and overjoyed when looking at the Idol Fight card set. They just go so crazy that it leaves a great impression, at least for me they do.

There's also the thing where Matsuri might...not...actually like marshmallows.

There's a lot of dialog where she's trying to change the type of marshmallow to something specific served only to be shocked when they actually have said specific marshmallow, and Rio telling Matsuri not to force herself...

There has never been any actual card depicting her eating marshmallows either.

I feel like this is probably MORE expensive since it probably cost them a LOT of money to get all that cardboard when you don't get that enormous cost with actual humans.

At this point, ML 765 is probably 961 levels of wealthy.

There's a card that's giving me question marks. It's this card:

(http://www.project-imas.com/w/images/2/27/Shizuka_SR18.jpg)
Noticed that her front strands is missing?

And here's the fixed version.
(http://www.project-imas.com/w/images/archive/2/27/20150608192530%21Shizuka_SR18.jpg)
The problem is that it's up-scaled, meaning that the quality isn't the best because it was originally 512 × 640 pixels.

So which one? Quality or Fixed?
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: MetalPredat0r on June 09, 2015, 03:36:30 AM
I'd go with fixed, tbh. Mainly because Shizuka without the locks is weird. However, maybe you can use an image editor to increase the quality.

ML has a few corrected cards; which I guess it's both good and bad? Good because the staff is more than willing to listen to fans and fix mistakes, bad because they need to be corrected in the first place. To be fair, one of the corrections is very interesting because it was done months after the card was released and it's a good overall indicator of the way in which ML's general artwork improved/changed:

I bought a few draws back in like January using the free coins that you get from trying out their list of recommended games every week.
Got lucky and traded in my draw for like 280 drinks and slowly built a budget deck...

The result depend on the rarity and stat of the card your choose for each idol, the better the card the better chance to get good result.

Just use HR or SR cards for all three idols and you will pretty much guarantee to get good result.

It should be fine if you're only using the browser to log in.
The thing is, the GREE application has your user name and password stored so that when you click on the link to go into Million Live it passes it as authorization so that it can let you into the game.

Since GREE is no longer supporting customers outside of Japan, you won't be able to use the app (if you're using the non-JP version) to authorize your session. You can still use the browser outside of Japan though.

Have you tried using VPN or proxy to bypass the region lock? maybe that will solve this problem.

I'm not sure if this would work, but good luck! I hope you can get back in.

edit: As a quick heads-up, GREE logged me out this morning, but I still have my browser version of the game up.
However, my GREE UI is in Japanese, so I'm going to try logging on later today and see if it still works for one of my other games.

edit2: Yeah, I just logged in and my account appears to be just fine because everything is in JP. Guessing VPN would fix it!

The Million Live manga is having a special election for the next characters to have a special arc/chapter/something dedicated to them in the manga.

http://natalie.mu/comic/news/156751

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Duu4PzMyND0

Two things to take out of this:
- The Top Three will be the ones to get the special arc.
- You CANNOT vote for either Mirai, Shizuka, or Tsubasa. They are not in the election at all and votes for them will not count. Cinderella Girls take note of this.

Osaka is the one I'm thinking about going to as well.
The very last live looks kind of good too.

Does anyone know what are lesson pts used for in million live?
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Maka on September 14, 2015, 05:33:43 AM
Does anyone know what are lesson pts used for in million live?
They're basically HN or R cards turned into tokens you can use towards their respective idols. So if you've got a Momoko lesson point it equals a Momoko HN you can use to train your Momoko. Momoko.

When doing a lesson, you can tab over to レッスンpt on the right of カード, click on that, and it should give you option to use them. The trouble is making sure to hit the dot next to HN or R to actually use the lesson points. If you hit レッスンする without actually selecting anything it won't work lol

Lesson points are good for powerleveling skills and using as fodder towards the 覚醒 gauge. Ten R points is equivalent to about 10% towards awakening.

You can use other idols, too. For example if you've got a Mirai card you want to awaken and like 150 Chihaya Rare lesson points, hit the アイドル変更 button and select Chihaya and use as many points as you want. However if you use another idol from the same category I think it goes down to 8% on the awakening gauge. Ten HNs seems to always be equivalent to 1% regardless if the lesson points match.

How do you verify one's Gree account/Million Live if they live outside of Japan, without a phone number within the Japanese area codes?
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Tafira on September 20, 2015, 01:16:27 AM
I'm not entirely sure it works still- since I did this roughly 10 months ago.

I'm pretty sure I remember the steps correctly though.

1. Change your Gree region back to US.
2. Confirm your account using your normal phone number.
3. Enter the code sent by Gree.
3. Connect to a JP VPN to change your region back to Japan
4. You're done!

If you're the spending type, I think confirming makes it harder to buy points, but I'm not honestly sure. (because I don't spend)

Will it still work if I am in Canada? And where do you go to confirm your phone number on the gree website? O.O

It doesn't actually matter if you live in the U.S.
All that matters is that you can receive the phone call.

I'd test it out right now, but I don't have much time at the moment.
It also seems that I can't seem to access my settings or my page on gree site,
which you need to in order to change your country- not sure if vpn bypasses this.

It seems like it's gotten a bit harder, I'll dig in a little later to see.

After doing a bit of digging I found a problem-there isn't a way to switch your country anymore (it only has japan as the country)
I believe this coincides with the English version of the gree site and app being shut down a few months ago.

Gree also blocks accessing your profile and settings if you don't have a Japanese IP.

So I believe my former method is invalid now- I don't think it's possible to confirm your account anymore.
Sorry about that ^^;

I used an app called tunnelbear, though it limits your usage to 2gb per month. (you shouldn't need to use a vpn constantly though)

Do you use the ML app or the gree app?
I use the ML app and it works perfectly fine.
Or use the vpn and log onto ML from your mobile browser and bookmark the home page. Should work.

01.Overture
02.Dreaming!
03.765PRO LIVE THE@TER 仙台公演開演!
04.ハルカナミライ by Haruka and Mirai
05.成長Chu→LOVER!!  by Anna and Yuriko
06.エスケープ   by Julia and Megumi

Post by: Maka on October 08, 2015, 02:30:42 PM
Haruka na Mirai:
Compose + Arrange: Ken Masutani (Summer Trip, Yumeiro Train, Unmei Live, others)

Seichouchu LOVER!!:
Compose: Satoru/Sei/Kiyoshi Kuwabara (whose name is translated like 3 different ways on the wiki) (Frozen Word, Vivid Imagination, believe my change!)
Arrange: Takuya Sakai (Torikago Scripture, most of Kuwabara's stuff)

Escape:
Compose + Arrange: Astronotes (In the name of love, UP10SION, WOW I NEED!)

Eternal Spiral:
Done by AstronoteS. See above.

Piece of cake:
See above!

I thought they would never announce these lol. Anyways, Escape is awkward solely because Julia and Megumi don't harmonize that well? The song's cute, it's just like... They're both kind of shouty singers...

Meanwhile piece of cake is amazing and all I wanted from this duet.

I like "Eternal spiral". The song is surprisingly good and Kana sings it surprisingly well (I've expected Yayoi to be the better singer of the two).
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: MetalPredat0r on October 15, 2015, 04:51:36 PM
Didn't expect a duo like Kana/Yayoi to get a song like that. Huh...

As for LTD04, Ritsuko/Karen and Tomoka/Iku are weird duos and you should feel weird.

Also, I assume Miki REALLY didn't want a duet with Tsubasa so she forced Hibiki unto her. Or at least, that's what my headcanon says. :p
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Maka on October 15, 2015, 05:29:25 PM
Ritsuko/Karen isn't as weird as the token loli with... Whatever archetype Tomoka is.

Emily/Iori is really good though. I loved sentimental venus!!

Oh yeah, here's the unassigned girls:

Takane
Azusa
Hinata
Kotoha
Arisa
Makoto
Tamaki
Umi
Elena
Subaru
Akane
Noriko
Ayumu
Rio
Nao
Ami
Mami
Miki
Fuka
Roco

I'd put money on either Azusa/Fuka or Azusa/Rio, plus Makoto/Ayumu. Nao/A Futami is plausible too...

Iori and Emily as a duo is absolutely adorable!

If I'm remember this correctly (it's been a while since I've listened to it) in the drama parts for their Live Theater Performance album, Emily took Iori's usual "I'm better than you" attitude way too seriously with Emily's extremely formal way of addressing Iori to cause her to get really flustered lol

Honesty, looking at the unpicked duets, I have no idea who they could put Takane with and not have it be really awkward... Other than Kotoha, but that means no Kotoha/Elena. :L

And dreams  Hibiki x Nao(Kansaix2)

Hold on, this can still be fixed!
Miki x Nao, and their song can be an energetic version of Suimin Busoku, but instead of lack of sleep, it'll be about lack of food
and onigiris. XD


Oh well, I'm kinda curious how the 2 will sound like together anyways...

Emily/Iori is really good though. I loved sentimental venus!!

Finally got around to listening to more of the LTHs and LTPs(haha... I haven't even finished with this one yet >.>).  Or more like I was starting to, but after I few songs in, I stumbled into Dear... and haven't been making much progress since.  I think I may have replayed that song more times than any of the other MLs combined lol, been stuck in my head for a few days now.  So crazy addicting! x. x

Post by: Alex on November 04, 2015, 06:58:33 PM
^^^Yes, I love Dear... and Konomi's voice also!

I was wondering what you guys thought about ML's music actually. I either completely love it or I don't find it that interesting haha. However, one thing I do really like about Million Live music is the group songs - they always seem to be really strong, especially most of the LTH ones. I was actually also wondering what you guys thought of the LTH units in general too. Are there any you really like or dislike? I think my favourites are definitely Milky Way and Eternal Harmony though they're all pretty cool.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: MetalPredat0r on November 04, 2015, 07:07:42 PM
Favorite LTH unit is difficult between Crescendo Blue and ARRIVE, but I can easily say Legend Days is the worst LTH unit, imo.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Maka on November 04, 2015, 07:18:08 PM
Sound-wise, I like Crescendo Blue the best, but their story was really underwhelming... Shiho is emo but Shizuka wants to make friends and everyone else is a background character! Fun!!!!

I liked Milky Way's story because it has Tomoka's group throwing Kuroi in the ocean lol
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Alex on November 04, 2015, 07:22:35 PM
LMAO, when reading that story I literally thought too!? (And made to be even worse by the fact that Reika's one of my favs too haha) Shooting Stars is such a good song tho. Milky Way's song is amazing and their voices blended greatly together too!

I love ARRIVE too! I was actually pleasantly surprised by Mixnuts as well as i really like their unit song! Yeah I kinda feel that about Legend Days but I can't describe why. It's almost like it's... lazy? I guess I feel like the characters could have been put into more interesting units.. but their song is decent at least right?

That's ML's music in a nutshell =v.

Never cared too much on the units themselves, but I'll agree that Legend Days is the worst because it's the third time we seen this group minus Ritsuko of course and I never cared for any of their songs except two.

I liked Milky Way's story because it has Tomoka's group throwing Kuroi in the ocean lol

Now I'm curious lol
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Maka on November 04, 2015, 09:06:15 PM
A lot of the orginal ML music was really bland (i literally can't remember anything off the Yayoi or Ritsuko cds and Roco's first song is like aggressively bad) but it got a lot better with LTH.

Milky Way's route is basically Kuroi trying to harass 765 but he doesn't have any idols under his wing like Jupiter or Leon so he just pops out of random places and screws stuff up for the evulz. It's hilarious because Kuroi is already almost a cartoon villain at times and he fully turns into one in the story.

I agree with LD being the worst because part of ML's charm to me is seeing the canon girls interact with the new idols, and seeing a 765-only group is completely uninteresting. The solo songs are amazing tho.

Haha, yeah... them just going with an old tried-and-true formula, but with Ritsuko added in to babysit. XD  Only explanation I could think of is to provide some fan service to main 765 fans or lure them in. >.>  I'm a bit happy that Hibiki gets to lead a unit though. <3  And I've only listened to smiley days atm(which was pretty good) so I can't say anything yet.

A lot of the orginal ML music was really bland...but it got a lot better with LTH.
Wow, that sums it up it perfectly. XD

Lol for me it got to point where I just found a playlist and just went thru a lot of the songs(for LTP), not even giving them a proper listen.(something you should never have to do for im@s songs x. x)  They're mostly all hit or miss, and just all over the place.  Even some of the album art just seems like not a lot of effort was put into them. :/  Gah, so painful having to say all this.  I'm still about halfway thru the LTP albums, but I'm giving up on them for now lol. 

LTH though, so far has been a completely different story.(thank goodness T.T)  I've only listened to one full album(and bits from others) and was just blown away.  I just picked the unit that stood out to me the most on the ML's main wiki page and just listened to that one first.
And this is prolly gonna be long fanboy post, and it's late and I'm tired right now so I'll elaborate more on this tomorrow so I don't pass out again from tiredness.

I'm so excited for Konomi/Matsuri and Mizuki/Momoko's song. I hope they're good. The last cd was pretty bland except for piece of cake.

Cut is impressive! They harmonize really well, I didn't expect them to sound so good together :0

Persona Voice and Alive Factor both give me total "90s anime opening" vibes, but that's not a bad thing.

I'm eh on Smiling Crescent. It's cute but there's not much there.

As for the matchups, all of them seem pretty ok. Like StarSeeker I was expecting Nao/Ami, but Ami/Hinata will be an interesting matchup... I was expecting Azusa/Rio though.

I'm dreading Akane/Roco because I really dislike their voices,,,

Looks like this set is a much improvement compared to the last set.

Not much to say about the 05 pair-ups though I'm fearing for their songs... particularly Akane x Roco's & Arisa x Nao's...

Been wondering this for a while now but in the song, ...In The Name of. ...LOVE?, what's that voice saying at the end of the countdown before the interlude? I'm hearing "Moe is spreading. Good job!" Lol, I don't think that's right, is it? XDD

I re-listened to it like five times, and I hear "moe is spreading, liftoff!"

It could be "power spreading", but it's hard not to hear moe...

Sooooo pumped for LTD 3. Honestly, the only song I'm not in love with is smiling crescent and that's pretty generic.

Why does ML keep disappointing me with no Kotoha/Elena/Megumi songs. Whyyyy. Oh well, Miki/Elena seems good enough.

Anyways, the composers and lyricists for each song:

Shinsoku Mermaid:
Lyrics: Miho Karasawa (Unison Beat, Hatsukoi Butterfly, WORLD WIDE DANCE)
Arrange + Compose: Shuhei Mutsuki (Cut Cut Cut, some other works)

Hello, Your Angel:
Lyrics: Erika Masaki (Shooting Stars, Frozen Word, Vivid Imagination)
Compose: Hiroaki Suzuki. No Idolmaster works, but he did Mahoutsukai Hajimemashita! from Love Live, and lots of Ika Musume and Baka to Test image songs.

I don't even like Pripara so idk why I'm thinking this but I can't see this song as sounding anything but this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6eg6mL-yt4) lol

GF:
All by KOH, who's done some of the strongest ML songs (Suichuu Candy, dear... Vivid Color, Addicted)

little trip:
Lyrics: Youhei Matsui (Precious Grain, POKER POKER, lots of ML songs)
Compose: Yuxuki Waga (a popular vocaloid composer (http://vocaloid.wikia.com/wiki/Yuxuki_(Futaeno-P)))

Melody in scape:
Lyrics: Erika Masaki
Compose: Hajime Mitsumasu (HIGH JUMP NO LIMIT from SideM, Kimi no Kokoro Kagayaiteru kai? from Love Live Sunshine)

Went for the obvious duo of Makoto/Ayumu (who already had two albums together prior) and yet Kotoha/Elena is still MIA. Nope, makes perfect sense.

Hellz yes!  Omg, Hibiki and Tsubasa harmonized so perfectly, turned out better than I imagined.  Major props to the arranger/composer.  This was exactly the type of song I was hoping for with these 2.(sounds like it would make a good UBW OP XD)

Iori and Emily's was great too!  I luv all those cute back and forth exchanges during the verse!  It built up a nice momentum leading into the chorus too.  Really fun song and so HNGNGNGNGGGG!!

After being able to listen LTD 03 properly for about a week or so now, I can safely say I love it! In my opinion a lot stronger than the previous album by far (although piece of cake is amazing)!I genuinely like and enjoy every song on the album but by far Decided is my favourite! I'm so glad that two of my favourites had a duet together especially in a style that is different for both of them.

Have any of you guys  listened to it yet? Can't wait for the next album now! :)

I'm know that 星屑のシンフォニア had been performed at the Million live! 2nd live and at the 10th live.

It might had been performed at some event that I don't aware of though.

Sounds like the Million Live tour is going really well, wish I could go! :(

As we've only got 1 LTD album left, what do you guys think of the other albums so far? Are there any duets or songs that surprised you? Any you didn't like? Currently my favourite song is Konomi's/Matsuri's (Decided) because it's two of my top 5 characters and it's song that's completely different to anything else the two have done but works and sounds so good! I thought the first album was honestly quite boring except for piece of cake which I LOVE and Escape is ok but that's it lol.

I think currently, my fav is 03 but it's closely followed by 05 - it really took me by surprise tbh I didn't think it'd be so good! I think the idea of duets was a really good one which surprised me but I like it? I have absolutely no idea what they'll do for the next album series lmao..

I'm gonna go inverse and say I think Beat the World sounds better than Emergence Vibe so far, but both are kinda eh, tbh.

I mostly say this about Emergence Vibe because Miki's been singing the same kind of cool song since 2011 and ML is especially guilty of it, imo. I would have much rather Miki gotten a cuter song this time around kinda like Tomoka did with Iku. I dunno, I'd just like more variety.

With Elena, I agree. That's mostly because she has a balance between song variety throughout ML. Miki, on the other hand, has had nothing but cool songs and after having that for a while, I kinda get sick of it.

Not to say the song is bad, it's fine. It's just that when Miki's involved, I want something a little different, but I guess I'm getting my hopes up too high at this point. :P

You make it to Characro this time around? They're ending the Im@s collaboration in a few months, apparently.

... And if you're anything like me, it'll take you ages to go through your pictures. I take so many of them, I have to tell myself to stop. I literally have a four digit number of pictures I've been too lazy to go through from the last time I was there. (^_^);; I don't suppose you went sightseeing, did you?

Ended up hanging around the kansai area for the entire trip so didn't get to make it to Characro. Not too likely I will get there before they stop the im@s collab sadly.

There are character summaries on the wiki, but they're a bit outdated and in need of proofreading. You also might be able to find links for the manga translated, but there's very very few chapters typeset and translated.

I really want to get around to translating/posting the translated manga some day, but I've never worked on a translation before and I'm not confident in my skills. (Like, I understand the manga, but I'm not sure I can convey it in English that makes sense)
I also have no idea how to put the text on the pages or obtain scans.

If there's any characters you want to know more about though, feel free to ask here. A lot of members are quite knowledgeable.

It's taking longer than I would have hoped, but thanks, I'll work hard. No new announcements, but thinking there might be one at Makuhari. AND NANSU WAS AWESOME! She was so cute. She even had pigtails on day 2.

But Aimi stood out the most. She performed both Praline and Ryuuseigun live. It was amazing.

This is a super long post and it's only about Day 1. Sorry my descriptions are boring and repetitive, I'm getting tired. haha
(Famitsu: http://www.famitsu.com/news/201603/12101285.html)
On Saturday, we got to Orix Theater a couple hours early. It was only a short walk away from our hotel so we got to enjoy the nice weather and explore a bit.
We met up with some other overseas producers and hung out a while before the live.
Our seats were on the first floor on day 1. They were in the second section back and one row back, so we felt really close to the stage. Really amazing seats.
The live opened up with an instrumental jazzy version of Dreaming and then all the seiyuu went straight into singing Dreaming!

   Dreaming! is easily one of my favorite ML songs, but it’s a great way to start off a live with a lot of energy.
   Before Dreaming! came on, a jazzy instrumental version of Dreaming! was playing in the background while the performers’ names flashed on the screen. This really set the mood as all the girls came on to the stage and posed in their characters’ poses. I broke many UOs for this song and it was just too fun to do calls to.
02. エスケープ 愛美/藤井ゆきよ
   Aimi and Stefuji are really high up in my seiyuu ranking and their voices work together really well. This was a nice way to start off the live after Dreaming!
05. Happy Darling 夏川椎菜
   Happy Darling has always been a favorite of mine, and I’ve loved watching Nansu grow more and more as she sings this song. Broke some UVs and used my Anna penlight. I felt like Nansu looked a little more tired than normal during this live, but none the less, she put on a great performance.
06. Sentimental Venus 山崎はるか/Machico/野村香菜子/愛美
   Sentimental Venus is another song I really love and the four of them together were really great. Many UOs were broken for this song, it’s just too good.
07. PRETTY DREAMER 渡部優衣/山口立花子/夏川椎菜/上田麗奈
   Pretty Dreamer is another song with really fun calls, so I broke more UOs for this song. Of course I was admiring Nansu the whole time.
10. 成長Chu→LOVER!! 夏川椎菜/山崎はるか
   It caught me off guard that this was included in the setlist, but I was pleasantly surprised to see two of my favorite ML seiyuu singing together.  In the middle, the two of them drew a heart in the air with their fingers (which showed up as an animation on the video screen). However, I couldn’t take my eyes off Nansu for a second, so I only caught a glimpse of it. Pictures are in the Famitsu article linked.
12. トキメキの音符になって 麻倉もも
   This song is one of my favorite Serika songs and made me really fall in love with Mocho. I was so happy to see this performed live. Mocho’s dancing and singing is so perfect and sweet.
13. アフタースクールパーリータイム 藤井ゆきよ
   This song is my brother’s favorite song and he really wanted to see it live. Unfortunately he attended only day 2 of the live so he missed out on seeing it. However we broke UOs as soon as the song started and many people actually did the same. The crowd around us started getting really excited for this song. As usual Stefuji’s stage presence is really great. She is awesome at putting on a sexy show.

765 cover corner:
14. おとなのはじまり 夏川椎菜/麻倉もも/山崎はるか
   This trio was perfect for this song, their voices really suited it. Ottoman no hajimari has such fun calls and is such an energetic song. It was perfect for the cover corner.
15. 自転車 田所あずさ/愛美/角元明日香
   Jitensha! Definitely a feel good idolm@ster song for me. I was with my boyfriend who is a MakotoP so it was especially meaningful for both of us. On Day 2, my brother started a UO cyclone for this song. They were another perfect trio.
16. MEGARE! 大関英里/藤井ゆきよ/上田麗奈
   Fun and upbeat! MEGARE has such good calls and as I mentioned above Stefuji really works it on the stage.
17. 風花 Machico/駒形友梨
   This one and the following song were somewhat unexpected for me. They’re a little more serious than the first few songs in the cover list. However, Machico’s voice actually really suited it well and was beautiful. (Watch out, Harami! w)
18. またね 山口立花子/渡部優衣/野村香菜子
   A beautiful and relaxing end to the covers. Really brought the energy down a bit as they began to transition back into the ML songs.

22. Blue Symphony 麻倉もも/駒形友梨/田所あずさ
   I don’t know how Mocho does it, but she somehow can keep up a perfectly cool attitude during Blue Symphony. Blue Symphony is another one of those idolm@ster songs that just clicks with me. The dance was awesome with the performers on each of the stairs.
25. Be My Boy 山口立花子
   Be My Boy is such a sweet song, I feel bad for not noticing Rikako more until now. She looked absolutely stunning on the stage and such an angelic voice.
26. プラリネ 愛美
   Yuiton and Stefuji gave Aimi a special introduction right before she came out to perform Praline. Praline was more amazing than I could have ever imagined. Aimi's singing voice was gorgeous and she adds so much more feeling in the live version. She also did a little bit of the guitar solo which everyone stayed quiet for so they could admire her skills. She noted later she was so happy she was able to do it.
32. ココロがかえる場所 渡部優衣/藤井ゆきよ
   This song really cooled down the mood of the live as it came toward the end. Yuiton and Stefuji really surprised me with this. I’m not used to the two of them singing such soft and sweet songs. They really nailed it.
33. Welcome!! THE IDOLM@STER MILLIONSTARS
34. Thank You! THE IDOLM@STER MILLIONSTARS
   The last two songs were hype and many UOs were broken. It was a wonderful way to end the live.

No one cried during Day 1, but some of the seiyuu got a tiny bit emotional. I was really feeling it with them.

Thanks for all your help earlier :)

Do any of you can make a translation script of the manga chapter 9 & 10 ( or if possible alongside 7 & 8 )? Those chapter looks interesting, but sadly I don't know what's going on aside making some interpretation on the picture alone.....

If somehow you couldn't, a summary will do :)

Or at least, do any of you know who is ML idol that have close friendship with Iori?

EDIT: Adding question....

To your first, you mean the Gessan one?

Then ML idols that have a close friendship with Iori... there's a few stories in the comic anthologies that feature Iori's interactions with some of the ML idols, but I'm not sure those go into enough detail to show a relationship. I only just got past the first book of the gessan comics, so I'm going to have to see if Iori comes in more later.

Iirc, the closest ML Iori has a relationship with is Reika, but that isn't exactly what I'd call a friendship.

I have no idea which "version" of the manga that I read.... :( . As far as I know, in chapter 5 & 6 Mirai attempt to (and successfully) replace sick Shizuka in the concert

Even in mobage version, it's hard to get Iori's info, isn't it? :-\

Ah okay, this is the version I am reading. I just got the second and third books while I was in JP.
I can write up a quick summary of what happens in each of the manga if there isn't a translation currently available. Are people interested in something like that?

Okay, might take me a while to get through it, but I can go on a chapter by chapter basis.
Since I think the entire first book is probably already uploaded somewhere, I can just post a little summary of what happens there before posting what happens in the second one.

Also there's a new drama CD/song series. Copypasting this from tumblr.

Quote
A new and very interesting project was announced at the latest ML concert! Ever want to see your fave ML girl play a hero or villain in a canon AU? Yes? No? Well, either way, it’s happening.

So basically the way that this works is that there are 3 dramas you can “cast” each girl in. You pick who you want to be casted thru voting and the votes for each role determine who will play each part.

Each drama has five roles, each with their own description. Voting is done similarly to CG’s General Election.

Each will have an associated new CD that contains a theme song for the drama (probably starring all 5 elected girls?)

Drama 1: Yakuza Film
Role 1: Wanderer
Description: Becomes a guest of the Million (spelled with kanji that sounds like Mirion) Gang by chance.
Role 2: Heiress
The only daughter of the late head of the Million Gang.
Role 3: Gang Member
A member of the Gang loyal to the Heiress.
Role 4: Evil Gang Leader
The head of an evil gang terrorizing the masses.
Role 5: Bodyguard
The muscle of the the evil gang.

Drama 2: School Horror (think Corpse Party)
Role 1: Ordinary Girl
A girl who seemed ordinary in all aspects… Until… One day…
Role 2: Childhood Friend
The main girl’s best friend… By her side… Always and forever…
Role 3: Transfer Student
A transfer student that suddenly and mysteriously arrived…
Role 4: President
President of the Occult Research Club.
Role 5: Spirit
Fufufu…

Drama 3: Swords and Magic Fantasy
Role 1: Hero
A hero who will decide the fate of the world!
Role 2: Demon Lord
A terrifying demon lord threatening the world!
Role 3: Fairy
A cute fairy helping our hero~
Role 4: Sub-boss (basically The Dragon if you’re familiar w tvtropes terms lol)
The demon lord’s right-hand-lady, standing in the hero’s way!
Role 5: Villager
A villager.

Kotoha's 1, Megumi's 2, Elena's 3. I don't remember who's 4 but 5 is looking neck and neck between Sayoko and Reika.

My votes, with who's winning in parantheses

Wanderer: No preference (Julia, who I can see)
Heiress: Chizuru (Momoko)
Gang Member: Eh (Tamaki)
Evil leader: Matsuri (Matsuri, neck and neck with Hinata)
Bodyguard: Ayumu (Noriko)

I really want the BFF trio for the school horror film, but if not:
Girl: Kotoha (Kotoha)
Friend: Subaru or Minako (Megumi, neck and neck with Minako)
Transfer Student: Shizuka (Karen JUST snagged it from Elena)
Club Prez: Mizuki or Sayoko (Mizuki)
Spirit: Reika or Emily (Sayoko)

Hero: Kana (Anna or Yuriko)
Demon Lord: Tomoka (Tomoka)
Fairy: Akane or Tsubasa (Serika)
Sub-boss: Rio (between Nao and Arisa)
Villager: no preference (Roco)

Post by: Tengu B on April 23, 2016, 04:32:58 AM
I find it amusing they went for Four Lords as the name of the sub boss. Like, they could have given us three more roles right there...

Someone made a twitter bot that posts the current votes every hour: https://twitter.com/ml_castvote

Anyway what's going on with the voting

Wanderer: Julia in the lead with Tsubasa somewhat coming up second  Iku third with a quite bit
Heiress: Momoko leading with Chizuru and Emily having a fair showing
Gang Member: Tamaki in the lead because she calls Producer Oyabun a lot and the roll's name is Kobun (Mirai in second)
Evil leader: Matsuri and Hinata swapping first all the time, even though Hinata Ps came up with the idea after a while
Bodyguard: Noriko leading, with Shiho in second and Umi in third.

Oridinary Girl: Kotoha due to perceived normalness, trailed by Kana
Childhood Friend: Megumi and Minako swapping first, Megumi because Tristar and friendliness, Minako because cooking/personality
Transfer Student: Elena and Karen vying for first, Elena Ps want new roles for Elena and also Tristar, Karen for timidness
Club President: Mizuki leading with competition from Konomi
Spirit: Reika and Sayoko from the start with almost the same amount of votes

Hero: Yuriko and Anna going for top because they're gamers, although Anna Ps were initially so split they weren't winning anything
Demon Lord: Tomoka in first, because it's Tomoka (Matsuri's trailing in second)
Fairy: Serika ran away with it
Sub-boss: Nao and Arisa going for first, both on the assumption that they will be comically defeated
Villager: Roco ran away with it from the start when Roco Ps figured out what to do early, also Roco can stand out even as Villager A.


Reika ghost would hilarious to see, but I'm hoping for Kotoha-Megumi-Elena ultimately.

Post by: DeviantProtagonist on April 23, 2016, 08:36:54 PM
The casting's either going to be a Godsend or the heartbreaker in my eyes.

Call me late, but I've also now just dug into the Million Live manga. It's a fine read, made more pleasant by the surprising Kotoha relevance. To my knowledge there's at least three volumes so far, but I was only able to find the first one. Halp pls? :3

Thinking of it now, I'm certain they've bundled dramas. That'd be nice, too.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: Cael K. on April 24, 2016, 12:29:21 AM
The dramas were bundled with the limited edition of each manga, so they could be a little hard to get outside of Japan right now. Looks like Amazon.co.jp has some Vol. 2 limiteds right now, so you could spring for those. The drama CDs do have songs on them though, so that's kinda cool.

The regular editions should be much easier to get your hands on, though.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!

Thanks for the heads up, Cael. I'll get around and then some.

Shame the manga's apparently in translation drought, though.

Did you try CDJapan?
Not sure if they have it.

Somehow I ended up buying all my copies in person (vol 1 in California, and vol 2 and 3 in the Namco Store Osaka).

I really want to attempt translating the manga as I feel like I have a decent understanding of it, but as said before still a little foggy on some parts and unable to get scans. I do however have some of those summaries as I said I would do earlier in the works. Sorry it's taking forever, keep revising them so they'll be nice.

Well, for Elena with either of them:

There's this card with Megumi (the awakened version is them singing a duet):
http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/File:Elena_SR16.png

And for Elena/Kotoha, Elena appears in the background of a few of Kotoha's cards.

Kotoha/Megumi gets the most screen time since they were in Burning Girl together, but there's still interaction with the others. I'm not super familiar with the girls as much as I'm familiar with other MLs, so maybe someone else could say more about them?

Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: Million Live!
Post by: MetalPredat0r on May 03, 2016, 06:18:32 AM
I know the earlier chapters of the ML manga were more Kotoha/Elena based since Megumi doesn't show up at all until around Chapter 16.

What's notable is that all three have never had a sing together. Kotoha and Megumi have two group songs to their names together yet Elena is never with them. Even in LTD 06 which features Kotoha and Elena in the same album, they're not singing a duet together.

There's also this, because yay fanservice:

(http://i.imgur.com/Ytk1Vvl.jpg)

But really, you know Tristar's a sad state of affairs when people have to vote in Megumi's manga appearance. My only real hope at this point is an actual Million Live anime, mostly because in Cinderella Girls you saw unconventional trios have an actual presence. A tease more than anything.

Barring that? God continues to weep for these girls.

Post by: chaos176 on May 03, 2016, 10:05:22 AM
First of all, this isn't the final result, it's taken 1 minute before the voting end, so the winner is not certain yet.

As for Elena and Kotoha, they refer to each other as their best friend in the event long time ago, in fact, I'm pretty sure Megumi is a later addition to the group. beside the three refer to each other often in event dialogue.

About Megumi appearance in the manga, Monji or Gessan-P (the editor for the manga) said on twitter that they plan to debut Megumi a chapter after the special episode but the voting result change that.

So some pretty big news.

The original Million Live GREE app is shutting down.

(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/286273091808657408/374396709964349442/1509332582044.png)

Do note that this does not mean Million Live as a whole is being shut down/cancelled. Theater Days will remain active.

But the original GREE app for Million Live is shutting down and will terminate by the end of 2017. Theater Days will be ML's main form of new content.
