Title: Unpopular opinion
Post by: Producerchan on May 13, 2017, 04:28:20 PM
... I prefer Hibiki's, Ritsuko's, and (M)ami's versions of "I Want" to Haruka's.

Anybody else have any other unpopular opinions of the series?

Why is that an unpopular opinion?

Personally I love using Yayoi as a backup singer for I Want. She's THE best back up singer for that song.

I also love using Yayoi in the second slot for trio versions of Meisou Mind. She hits the notes perfectly. Which is very odd considering it is Yayoi after all.


Also I have the very unpopular opinion that Takane's version of DREAM is horrible and that her version of Tonari ni... isn't that good. I honestly don't like Miki or Takane much in the m@ster version of Overmaster either; their game version sounds a bit better. I rather use Hibiki, Yukiho, Iori in Overmaster - in those exact positions. And I love Chihaya's 9:02pm.

I also have the EXTREMELY unpopular opinion that Takane tends to sound bad in most of her m@ster versions of songs. She always sounds better in the game version or when Yumi Hara performs live.

I believe that the imas fandom can do without the 2011 anime.
To this day I still hate how that anime pigeonholed every idols' personalities and only put 3 of them onto spotlight.
I would've preferred the anime if they made it in Omnibus style like Amagami; 4 episodes centered on each heroine, that which I call fairness.

I feel you there. XD The anime helped me like im@s more because I couldn't play the games. :( But I would watch playthroughs and stuff....... ;_;

(Speaking of the anime I'm super hyped for the Side M anime *u* Even if the majority of the fanbase is cringing. >_>)

I should really stop being so edgy.

I didn't mean to drive potential fans out, by the way, but it sort of disappointing to find out that many fans' understanding of the idols do not go beyond the anime. As that is the case then the anime should've been a verbatim adaptation of the games.

It's also worth mentioning that the franchise have lasted for at least 6 years since the arcades (9 if you count the beta) before the anime, and that there were plethora of ways for people to be introduced into the franchise. Hell, Home Haruka brought me into the fandom, out of all available options.

(Speaking of the anime I'm super hyped for the Side M anime *u* Even if the majority of the fanbase is cringing. >_>)

And here's another unpopular opinion; I'd welcome that anime too. The anime will be less likely to mess up with the personalities, even expanding on them, just like it did with CG, as they're pretty shallow compared to 765/876pro.

Well, I did become a fan before the anime came out. As I said, I'd watch cutscenes and playthroughs via youtube of the games. :3 I actually really wish I could play them. ;n; But sadly I don't know enough Japanese to do so. :(

I really hate Haruka. She's just annoying to me. Too much optimism is irritating! >.>

Second unpopular opinion, despite me being introduced Im@s via cute songs on YouTube, the anime could've fleshed out more time on the other idols. It might as well have been called "Haruka-Miki-Chihaya" M@ster.

Third unpopular opinion, I don't get the point of Xenoglossia. :-/

I agree with the disappointment but I wouldn't want the original anime to be a "verbatim adaption" of the game.  If I wanted that, I'd just play the game in the first place.  I think the anime, while it could have focused more on the other characters, stands out as good as it is because it doesn't try to follow the game to the exact detail but still ensures the characters' identities are incorporated.

@Sylphony

You bring up a very good point here.
But have you seen the manga adaption of IdolM@ster? It expands the characters' beautifully. (in my opinion it does) If they had of incorporated the manga chapters into the anime, it would've tied up many loose ends and linked stories together so well!

Not really an unpopular opinion if that's the majority opinion.

If you want an unpopular opinion, I'll give mine.

I think main 765 is getting stale at this point in terms of their personalities and especially their overall storylines. They really need either a game that advances their stories by taking place after they've become famous or have a game where they're either retired or so famous that they're not in need of a Producer like that anymore and thus are having to produce a new group of girls while the OGs are around to help you out as mentors.

Post by: Chihayaa on June 22, 2017, 09:55:55 PM
I think main 765 is getting stale at this point in terms of their personalities and especially their overall storylines.

I definitely agree with the point about their personalities and storylines, there's only so much they can do with Chihaya and her little brother. Hopefully we get event stories in Theater Days like in Starlight Stage and we can see more unique stories for main 765. I always wondered why there wasn't a real true story in Platinum Stars; I guess they just ran out of ideas?

My unpopular opinion: I think the 2011 anime did extremely well in what all anime adaptations are supposed to do; advertise the original source. In the end, all adaptations are simply ads for the source work (really well done adaptations don't feel commercialized, however) and I think A-1 Pictures chose the best character stories to represent iM@S: Haruka and Chihaya (and Miki to an extent). Of course, you have the typical viewer who isn't going to check out what iM@S has to offer and it kinda ruins the whole point, but I dunno, I actually love it when anime adaptations pull off their own little exclusive storyline. It treats the people who know the source work, prevents spoilers from those who know the source work, and if it's well done, it's a plus for everybody. 2011's take on Chihaya's route was perfectly executed and it was definitely a highlight for idol anime for me.

In fact I'd go so far as to say the second cour is one of the most well-done idol anime out there and that's actually me thinking really hard about it, too. It feels way less commercialized and "ok now that the anime is done go check out the games and music" like a couple of idol shows. To me I can feel the passion that A-1 put into the anime and idk it just feels like they really wanted to pull off an amazing show.

Kinda disappointing they dropped the ball on the movie, though :/ Cinderella Girls was pretty good so here's hoping they pull off a good SideM.

I hate it too! It doesn't make any sense to me...like I get the opposites attract thing, but it just doesn't appeal to me, especially since Touma came across as kind of a jerk in iM@S 2 & the anime...if you need an opposites attract ship for Haruka, then why not ship her with the cool, calm Chihaya? I never really understood Hokuto/Makoto or Shouta/Yayoi either. The characters have nothing in common, plus Hokuto is 20...I'd say 3 years is a bit much...this could just be my preference for some of the girlxgirl ships in iM@S, but those three make no sense!

You gotta be kidding me... a 3 years age gap, too much for a relationship? LMFAO! Not trying to be mean, but that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve read. I’d say a big percentage of relationships (especially on seniors) have that age gap or even bigger. Ffs, there’s even a lot of couples today who have 20 and even 30 years of difference! How can you say a 3 year gap is too much compared to that?

What I mean is, 20 is legally an adult in Japan. There is no way a 20-year-old and a 17-year-old can have a healthy relationship. If it was 23 and 20, then maybe. I guess I worded it a bit weird...I have no problem with age gaps in relationships, but when one is an adult and the other is a kid, then in the words of a very wise hedgehog, that's no good.

Oh, now I understood you and you’re right, I honestly think relationships till both persons aren’t in their 20s won’t work well, even though I think that if a 17 y/o wants to have a relationship with a person that is starting his 20s then there’s no problem, as the minor is just one year a way of being an adult (when talking about non-Japanese relationships ofc). The problem would start if the person is already on their half 20s and the other one is still a minor... so maybe that’s why I don’t see Hokuto and Makoto’s relationship weird (even though I myself don’t like this pairing), as Hokuto just became an adult and Makoto is almost an adult too in my point of view. Also, Japan is changing the legal adult age to 18 in 2021 iirc???

Anyways, like I said before, sorry if I came out as mean, that wasn’t my intention! I interpreted your words like you thought age gaps were bad in any age and I didn’t have in consideration Japan’s legal age, so in my head Makoto was just one year away of being an adult.

Other unpopular opinions: I'm not a huge fan of 9:02 pm. I just think that Tonari Ni is a much better song. Plus nearly every idol does it well, whereas there are so few decent versions of 9:02 pm. I especially dislike Chihaya's, it just sounds so...squawky? IDK the word I'm looking for...as opposed to her version of Tonari Ni, which is flawless. Like even Yayoi has a great Tonari Ni, which is saying something.
Despite Xenoglpossia's shortcomings, it did at least have a really cute design for Iori. I liked the purple hair. It was cool on her. I also liked her voice actress in that series, it fit her personality better. Rie Kugimiya is a fantastic Iori, but she's very high-pitched...

^Seconding that. I love Deresute and CG but I kind of don't like how the english-speaking fanbase became now.

Well....my unpopular opinion.
Not sure if "unpopular" but I must say it's something that lowkey bothers me. I don't like it when Deresute-only fans calls Deresute/Cinderella Girls as "Idolmaster", as in "I play/love Idolmaster!" "Idolmaster girls" "I want Idolmaster to be localized" but they *only* meant Deresute, not Idolmaster in general, or even the core 765pro Imas. As if Deresute is the main and only Imas game. Hahah- Probably just me though. I'm trying to get used to it but it still bothers me at times.

(Also I've seen a person who literally called Deresute as "Idolmaster" but Mirishita as only "Theater Days" and really don't know how to feel about that...)

Yeah agreeing with this, they should call deresute as it is or cgss but  they keep calling it as idolmaster like it is the main branch of the series. Before deresute was release the fanbase was quite okay but now it became a cancerous fanbase.

Should also noted that the current CG popularity have destroyed the value of the original console game a.k.a PS making it a rhythm game with gacha and no communication with the idol  like deresute.

Same goes for me. It may sound petty, but it honestly gets on my nerves. And apart to being called “imas” as a whole, it also gets pretty annoying when they call Deresute as a whole “Cinderella Girls” and ignore (or directly don’t get informed about the existence of) the original game. As a Producer that has spend a lot of time in the original CG, it is pretty saddening for me to see that the Mobage gets ignored just because its not “muh rhythm game”, thing that tbh was what made Deresute & CG as a whole relevant, because I remember Love Live! players in Twitter criticizing the Mobage back when the anime aired & Deresute didn’t exist yet because “it wasn’t a rhythm game”. I get not everyone likes this types of “tap & wait” games (I myself don’t play other Mobages & GREE games outside of CG, SideM and ML!), but ignoring them is pretty saddening especially considering Deresute exists because of the original CG (obviously lol). I didn’t see this happen with Msute/SideM and Millitheater/ML! that much (just two or three times?), but with CG/Deresute it has arrived to a point that it has become so annoying for me. And like I said, it may sound petty, but that’s exactly how I feel.

Yeah agreeing with this, they should call deresute as it is or cgss but  they keep calling it as idolmaster like it is the main branch of the series. Before deresute was release the fanbase was quite okay but now it became a cancerous fanbase.

Indeed. The fanbase was small compared to now, but it was nice and not toxic (basically like SideM’s and ML!’s fanbases for now), but now it has become a mess. And the part about the original games being destroyed is totally true. Platinum Stars seemed too much like it was trying to be your usual idol phone game but in console, and that’s exactly why it got the bad rep it has. Hopefully Stella Stage will change that.
But hey! Not only did the CG popularity destroyed the games themselves, they also destroyed 765. I’ve seen Cinderella Girls fans (probably DeresutePs, as I have yet to encounter a pre-Deresute CG fan who hates 765) in game websites like Gematsu complaining about Stella Stage just because its “yet another 765 game, where’s my CG console game?!”. I honestly can’t believe they complain about CG not getting a console game when Deresute gets updated weekly, while for 765 games we need to wait months and even year(s) for them to release a new entry. Besides, Cinderella Girls’ cast is half unvoiced, if they want a CG game then why would they want the unvoiced girls to NOT be on it? They are also part of CG!

I really don't want a CG console game. As much as I love Syoko, CG has too many characters, and as my dad always says, a bigger cast is not a better cast. If people are so sick of the 765 Pro girls, then I'd like to see a game with some new idols...like for example I once had a dream that there was a game where you could produce Leon, Shiika, and 11 new female idols at 961 Production, however I doubt that would happen. Mostly because Leon's VA is super expensive and 961 is the antagonist of the franchise...it'd be like a Mario game where you play as Bowser (then again Wario DOES have his own spinoff series).

Looking at CG, they shouldn't make a console game out of this. Since the console game have always been 765 Pro, how much backlash will they get from 765 Pro fan. Sakagami won't just run from the stage at this development but out of Japan.

Large cast makes it harder to handle even the anime doesn't really show their relationship with each other but focusing their relationship with their own unit. The producer doesn't really play his role like it should be. Wondering how some of the CG anime watchers can said that CG anime is better than 765 Pro anime when the true aspect of idolmaster is not even there in CG anime. And it's also funny since this CG fans don't even play CG mobage but play dersute because mobage is card game but they went and buy CG viewing revolution that have no gameplay.

On another note Bamco should make a 961 Production game with a few new idol and producer that failed to produce the idol. After failing they all started fresh at a new company to get revenge on Kuroi.

IKR? 765's Producer had such a good relationship with all the girls and was a fleshed-out character. We call him Broducer for a reason. I loved how he would always go out of his way to help the girls with whatever they needed, and he's one of my favorite characters in the anime. CG Producer just feels so...detached.

Now another (not sure if unpopular opinion or not, but eh) opinion:

If anything iDOLM@STER that gets officially localized in English/the west (more than Shiny festa's iOS port or the CG VR)...I hope it's not the mobile games, ahah. Sooo many people wanting Deresute to be localized solely to compete with Love Live... but to me, iDOLM@STER's (as a whole) true appeal is not their mobile games. That's why I want the console games to get localized first, if anything.

That's why I want the console games to get localized first, if anything.

I would also love a main game to get localized but if we will only get another mobile one, I'm sure
The risk of money loss is to high for them to make a main console game I think
also deresute and mirishita (and Live on Stage) are not that bad of games, sure, they don't have a big story mode like the main games, but those small commus are not that bad and I#M sure they would make more money with the sales of gacha currency
