Uh.......  So we're going to get a mobage under the iDOLM@STER label about producing male idols.

When people searched it again...It was taken down for no reason. (Is this some sort of joke? 'Cause it's not funny.)

I'm a little concerned honestly, I don't really like the fact that we're having a third mobile game under the iM@S label out there (I already didn't like having two), and I wonder if Namco is doing this only because they feel threatened by Ameba's "Boyfriend" and need to take a slice of that market.

That's my beef with it as well... But as long as the mainstream iM@S is still receiving content, I'm not too worried. I'll get iffy around the mobile adaptions when they start meaning less console and handheld releases.

I'm on the same fence, but I'm not too worried about that since Namco Bandai have been doing a good job of balancing out their priorities. Cinderella Girls and Million Live are updated regularly (once every two to three weeks, I believe), but at the same time, the main series is still getting its attention with the recent movie, One for All coming out in a few months, and that PS4 game that's currently in development. When it comes to SideM, I'm more worried about a few of the game's details, like:

-What agency is gonna be represented? Is it gonna be 765Pro again or a brand new agency? Can't be 961Pro, since Jupiter defected from that agency back in 2 and the anime. I say this because Touma is right there as the sort of poster boy for the game.
-Will it be like Million Live where the game's roster is static or will there be constant new characters added like in Cinderella Girls? Also, will every character have a voice by default or will they have to earn a voice through sheer popularity?
-Will Ryo be in this game in any way, shape, or form!?

Won't be surprised if it's like CG in the sense that the idols aren't affiliated to a canonical production, but instead belong to the player-owned studios who then join up to form player-made productions.

...Really? If that's true, it makes me feel a lot better... The reception Jupiter got originally made me worry about this attempt...

And I swear if there are "over 100 idols to produce", I'm going to pass out from sheer number of wiki pages.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: SideM (mobage)
Post by: MetalPredat0r on February 20, 2014, 07:34:46 PM
I honestly thought it was 765Pro, since the original 13 idols from 2 are in the game as obtainable cards in Cinderella Girls that are updated once in a blue moon.

...Really? If that's true, it makes me feel a lot better... The reception Jupiter got originally made me worry about this attempt...

And I swear if there are "over 100 idols to produce", I'm going to pass out from sheer number of wiki pages.

I heard of requests back when around the first game and Live For You were out. i think people wanted a completely separate game where you produce boys, not a group of a**holes who stomp on your self-esteem every chance they get.

Disclaimer: I like Jupiter, but even I call out when characters are being dicks.

OK, honestly, I'm really excited for this. I think I'm gonna try to get my hands on it once I get an iPad.

Because, seriously. Producing male idols. Does that mean you get to produce Hokuto? Because I want to produce Hokuto.

Also Ryo.

Well, they're the only male idols, period. And I really want to see post-good ending Ryo so bad. I want to see a happy, confident Ryo.

I am very curious about the new idols, though!

I hope this idea goes beyond just a card game eventually. I love seeing those rare otome games with fun gameplay.

Post by: RisingStar on February 21, 2014, 06:23:48 AM
YES!! Please we get an official announcement soon. I wanted more male idols since Ryou! Hopefully they don't overload us like CG. 20 more guys seems good enough, plus Jupiter and Ryou.

Think of the inevitable shippings and CDs... Yes, it will be glorious.

Now here's the big question: Will Ryo be in this?

I hope so. It'll prove that Namco somewhat still cares about 876 and hasn't reduced them to DLC idols.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: SideM (mobage)
Post by: Daverost on February 21, 2014, 02:08:24 PM
So... apparently this is a thing now. Neat. Almost certainly won't play it, though. Even if we got comics and stuff like CG, it would probably be just like CG and we wouldn't ever see Jupiter.

In any case, I'm interested in seeing where this goes. Hopefully, Namco doesn't give too much effort on this and let it grow on its own. Let it take the sleeper hit route that Cinderella Girls did.

Post by: MetalPredat0r on February 23, 2014, 04:45:00 PM
Well, this is now a thing. So i take it that its a brand new production company called 351Pro with Jupiter stopping by to say "Yo". I can live with that. Its world building without over-saturating 765Pro's idol count. (50 is enough!) However, it does bug me that its a card game AGAIN. I'm also not digging the character designs too much. Maybe I have to give it time, but none of these boys (besides Jupiter) really stuck out to me. Though judging by the group shot at the end of the trailer, we COULD be getting some trap idols ala Ryo, which are always welcome in my book.

Speaking of Ryo, not a single sign of him! Namco Bandai, PLEASE do something about this!
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: SideM (mobage)
Post by: Maka on February 23, 2014, 05:04:34 PM
It looks like there's more of a focus on their lives before coming idols, like the famitsu article talked about "from a pilot/pro soccer player/part timer/etc. to an idol!" The designs are a little bland, but they're rather cute.

Translated a few of the descriptions, by the way. Looks like these three are the Yukiho/Chihaya/Yayoi or Miki/Haruka/Chihaya that you start with... Or so I thought, but Tsubasa is an Normal-type while the two others are Rare.

Teru Tendo: The red-haired one.
From an attorney to an idol!
~With hard work and guts, he's the hot-blooded lawyer hero!~
"My name's Teru Tendo, and I'll become the idol world's brightest star!"

Kaoru Sakuraba: The one with black hair and glasses.
From a surgeon to an idol!
~Commencing the most supreme operation!~
"There's no value in putting us in a team."

Tsubasa Kashiwagi: The one with brown hair and blue eyes.
From a pilot to an idol!
~A beautiful liftoff on stage!~
"I... Want to stand there as well."

So I translated the quotes on the cards:

http://www.famitsu.com/images/000/048/353/l_53021bb86920c.jpg
"I am actually a fan of tokusatsu... Wait, you already knew? Sometimes I make poses like that? I see, I never noticed..."

http://www.famitsu.com/images/000/048/353/l_53021bb8b9319.jpg
"...Ah, we meet again. Sorry about my large build. I stand out pretty suspiciously because of it..."

http://www.famitsu.com/images/000/048/353/l_53021bb81db14.jpg
"...I'm getting along just fine. Guess I really didn't need your help after all."

This is a dude?
Looks like half of the regular Cinderella girls..

Umm...

961PRO website = "Touma Amagase"
SideM PV = "Toma Amagase"

Why did they drop the "u"?

I'm guessing this is because that is how it is pronounced.
The "u" in Touma extends the sound of the "o" in "To".
Sometimes people use Toma (usually with a bar over the 'o') to be a romaji version of とうま (touma).

tl;dr still the same pronunciation

Oh god, I see the male Takane. I was worried that they would have characters that are expies of the original idols and unfortunately there are some here.

Post by: ninjamitsuki on February 24, 2014, 05:16:40 AM
Well, if it's anything like Cinderella Girls, they'll add new characters, and maybe Ryo will be one of them!

...I'm going to remain hopeful that Ryo is in this somehow.

And also those people saying Jupiter will be just as important as 765 are in Cinderella Girls... They might be right, as they don't have casual outfits. I imagine Hokuto, Touma and Shouta are starters.


Also looky here, 765 makes a cameo!:

I read a google translated version of the Famitsu article and under Jupiter what I could make out of the garbled translation was something along the lines of "we are starting fresh". So I guess they quit 961.

...And yet Ryo isn't one of them. They went ahead and made a new trap pads and wig and all instead of using one they already had. One with a lot of fans.

Now that I think of it, the 876 idols weren't in Cinderella Girls or Million Live, right? So Dearly Stars is basically being ignored...

Also, Haruna Wakazato reminds me of Gaius from Fire Emblem. Sweet tooth and all. Definitely an expy...

Didn't I just said that they work for Different Idol Production companies? (Where did they say that they joined 315Pro?)

As in "freelance idols", since they are following the iM@S Anime plot. Gold Pro could've been one of their many short term idol jobs that they have.

On the side note: Has anyone confirmed the gender of the Producer of this game yet? Because people have been chatting about whether it's a Male P or Female P.

It's a common issue with the mobile card games. All the well-established idols (765Pro and Jupiter) are always mixed up when it comes to what types they are. The worst, imo, are placing Yukiho and Iori in the Passion Category and Makoto and Hibiki in the Cute Category in Cinderella Girls, when it really should be the other way around. Million Live had a similar issue with the Futami Twins being considered Visual and Iori being considered Vocal, when the Twins were usually Dance and Iori was usually Visual. It's something that always bothered me with the mobile games and here its at its weirdest. The little boy who can do backflips and cartwheels on stage is Visual and the Handsome (no homo) young man who's specialty is being charming is Dance? Sure, Namco Bandai. Sure.  ???

I could have sworn the twins were Dance...

In any case, not a lot of people catch that the CG placement was because of the PSP games. Wandering Star was Passion with the exception of Takane being switched for Miki, Perfect Sun was Cute, and Missing Moon was Cool.

These games always have some weird placements, though...

The Twins are with other Visual Idols here.

It's like the developers just picked names and categories out of a hat, shipped the game out and realized "Oh crap, we made a boo-boo" for three games. :p

The typing works if you think of them as Cinderella Girl types rather than ViDaVo. Hokuto being the cool guy and Shouta as passion

In the brief time I was able to play the game, I noticed my starter Teru's highest stat was actually Dance during the boss round with Shiki, so the Red/Blue/Yellow structure isn't necessarily classifying them by best vocalist/dancer/charisma

If that's the case, then it makes a whole lot of sense. Though that means Touma would be Cute and I refuse to say that at all for the sake of my man card. :p

The typing works if you think of them as Cinderella Girl types rather than ViDaVo. Hokuto being the cool guy and Shouta as passion

In the brief time I was able to play the game, I noticed my starter Teru's highest stat was actually Dance during the boss round with Shiki, so the Red/Blue/Yellow structure isn't necessarily classifying them by best vocalist/dancer/charisma

I was under the impression that the symbols indicated what kind of idol they were. For example, red cards have a fire symbol, so I took it as those under red are the hot-blooded, passionate idols.

But if we split Jupiter up in the categories in ML and CG, I think Touma would be Vocal and Passion, Hokuto would be Visual and Cool, Shouta would be Dance and Cute.

Hokuto is dance while Shouta is image? -_-...
With his corner-cut dancing in his role of the trio in IM@S 2, I always assumed he was image.
SideM Category is different from ML and CG.

Red: Physical (Passionate and Hot-Blooded)
Yellow: Mental (Cute and Energetic)
Blue: Intelligence (Mature and Cool)

The worst, imo, are placing Yukiho and Iori in the Passion Category and Makoto and Hibiki in the Cute Category in Cinderella Girls, when it really should be the other way around.

IMO, Iori should have been Cute, Yukiho is fine where she is, Makoto should have been Cool, and Hibiki's fine where she is.

I still like Makoto being in the Cute section, either out of irony or at least her hellbent effort to be cute.  It's kinda like Riina not fitting the cool rocker image at all but she's still in the Cool section.

According to the website and several online articles, the game is currently down and shall continue to be until summer. It's rather depressing, especially since Ken is mostly to blame.

The only problem with those VAs getting involved in SM is that they're pretty old. I have a strong feeling people are going to want the male idols around for a good while, so Namco will most likely look for up-and-coming male VAs, with female VAs for Arisu's brother and the other shotas.

I believe the game is still down. Actually, there are still some that care for the game because the SMs still get birthday art. There's supposed to be an event for them, but there isn't much info for it.

If I had to take a guess, I'd say they're finding VAs for all the male idols. It's a stretch, but the reason they gave for the game being down is that there was a problem with the servers. I highly doubt it would take it this long for a server problem and adding VAs seems to be the only thing I could think of that would cause the game to be still be down.

Well if they're getting VAs, then that's great! I'd like to see the SideM boys get some more characterization since they have started to grow on me as of late. Could also give me an excuse to start drawing males again. :P

They're just doing a major overhaul on the game's structure is all.  I'm not exactly too sure I'd say this game's high on Namco's priority list anyway.  I think they built this game from scratch, seeing as they didn't outsource its development to another company like how Cinderella Girls was (and consequently became a reskinned version of Rage of Bahamut).

Yeah, I'd also like to think the game itself is just getting a massive update if its taking this long. You could say that the game was rushed for the February release and they took the servers down just to rework the game into what it was intended to be. At least, that's what I get from all of this.

So I can't read Japanese, I have an iPad, and I have a mobage account for Rage of Bahamut.

Next step is figuring out how to register for SideM because even though I won't understand ANYTHING, I want to produce a Hokuto really badly.

So.
Can anyone just kinda...tell me what to do? Is it even playable on an iPad? A better question is, is it playable in AMERICA?

Preregister here (https://ssl.sp.mbga.jp/_game_pre_register?gid=12017647) on a mobile device while signed into your Japanese mobage account (which is probably going to be different assuming you're playing on American Rage of Bahamut).

It wouldn't surprise me if it is like that.  Who knows though, SideM was made by a different developer from CG (BNGI in-house studio as opposed to Cygames) so it may run slightly differently.

Great, thanks.
Then my next question:
Yes, I'm playing on American RoB. So then, to make a Japanese Mobage account, do you just need to...change the region when you register, or is it more complicated then that?

Loving the conversations on the main page if you have certain idol combinations in your unit. Favorite so far has been Hokuto telling Touma he wants curry for dinner and Touma responds with, "I'm not your mom!"

Edit: One Japanese wiki says it's better to max out both base cards before changing for optimal stats, but I'm not sure how reliable that is seeing as how most wikis have almost no information on the game.

(The people on NicoNico are already making calls for the new songs. Can't wait for 315Pro's first live!)

Lyrics for "DRIVE A LIVE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML0KnKma0QE)" up and ready to view!

It'll be on the iM@S wiki shortly...
(Thanks to ChocoCats for translation!)

EDIT: Touma (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Touma_Amagase), Hokuto (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Hokuto_Ijuuin) and Shouta's (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Shouta_Mitarai) profiles ave been updated. (Shouta's background story from SideM hasn't been added yet. I'll keep that in mind.)

As expected, Pixiv has posted information regarding the SideM idols (http://dic.pixiv.net/a/%E3%82%A2%E3%82%A4%E3%83%89%E3%83%AB%E3%83%9E%E3%82%B9%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BCSideM). The reason for this post is that I'm planning to add information for these idols on the wiki now that the CDs for them are coming out (and so people get to know them, too). My Japanese is still poor enough to accurately translate words, so this project needs to get the support it needs. I want to start with the main star unit of the game DRAMATIC STARS (http://dic.pixiv.net/a/DRAMATICSTARS) and its members Teru (http://dic.pixiv.net/a/%E5%A4%A9%E9%81%93%E8%BC%9D), Kaoru (http://dic.pixiv.net/a/%E6%A1%9C%E5%BA%AD%E8%96%AB), and Tsubasa (http://dic.pixiv.net/a/%E6%9F%8F%E6%9C%A8%E7%BF%BC).
Also, Kizakis on Tumblr has uploaded manga scans with some translations on Google Drive (https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B00YHkEWO-mXX25aN19GczBrZlk&usp=drive_web), so check it out.

I wish I could help, but I just plain cannot speak or read Japanese period. However, I wish you the best of luck with this because I wanna know more about the SideM idols now just like I wanted to know more about Million Live about a few months ago.

If the info isn't in there, I would have to search it from the official web or anywhere that might have a proper translation.

I'll probably buy a better CD player (unless Sony comes out with some CD player upgrade for PS4) and buy the ST@RTING LINE CDs as they come out. I was really impressed with BRAND NEW FIELD and STARLIGHT CELEBRATE!, and the second set of "unique" songs (Planet scape and DRAMATIC NONFICTION) were OK; I wasn't a big fan of them (for some reason the chorus just happens to be way better than the other parts of the song lol). But this really makes SideM look great, an anime or even a home-to-video (OVA but with 13 episodes, if there aren't better words to choose lol) release doesn't seem that unlikely right now.
DRIVE A LIVE and 夕映えプレセント seem really similar in the way that each album a song featured for each unit. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the final album of both series features all of the idols singing altogether.

Three CDs each for the SR codes, correct? Nice! I also translated all of the SideM songs except for DRAMATIC NONFICTION and it's going to be "fun". I wonder who's going to be on the next wave. I'm predicting for Beit and Altessimo.

I personally have a strong feeling HighxJoker is gonna be in Batch Two since they are one of the most popular SideM units, if every single member ranking in the Top 10 of the elections is anything to go by. Or at least, HighxJoker is gonna be one of the best-sellers.

I have been wondering, what song types do you guys think are gonna be applied to each unit? While some are rather obvious, like Altessimo of course getting something classical, it's kinda difficult determining what kinda songs are gonna be given to some units such as S.E.M. or FRAME.

Whoo, done with DRAMATIC STARS... for now. There's nothing much new about them (well except for Kaoru's case, though it's really more of an extension of his past) but there are some new little facts, especially regarding Teru's name and birthday. Let's see if the Drama parts in their CD debut has anything new about them.

EDIT: Nope. Nothing new. 1st part is basically making catchphrases for an interview and the 2nd part is Jupiter giving them helpful advice. Let me check out the other units to see what to write about.
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: SideM (mobage)
Post by: Clear Blue on April 21, 2015, 07:11:28 AM
The Jupiter's side of the drama might has some interesting info there.

It starts off with Jupiter talking about how they felt after they left 961Pro, then bumping into Dramatic Stars. Both groups were asked to meet at the same location by the Producer and s/he was running late. Next, there's this awkward silence. Teru tries to start up a conversation (by talking about the weather), Tsubasa wanted to make tea for everyone, but Kaoru killed the mood instantly and it went back to this awkward silence.

Then, they introduced themselves to Jupiter and vice versa. They commented about each other. Tsubasa mentioned having an un-named little brother and Kaoru believes Jupiter is their senpai. (Now that you mention it, a lot of the SideM idols look up to Jupiter; for example, Nao wanting to be like Hokuto in the Pajamas Event, there were several of them who were influenced by Jupiter's performance on stage.)

It ends with Touma and Teru were getting worked up over something (I think it was a curry contest) and Tsubasa was like "Producer, please come back!"

The unit, New Wave, in terms of physical appearance, is based on Dearly Stars.

http://imassidem.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-192.html

So that makes 14 units and 43 idols total. A nice even number, but I hope that this the last of these new characters because I'm getting a bit sick of the new characters from CGs and SideM has enough roster as it is (not a fan that a lot of them are expies, design wise =/). Though that means that we're to get 2 CDs per wave if it's only just those three added.

Oh yeah, interesting backstory for Beit.

Minori: The idol fanboy. His uncle (I believe, got that from jpwikipedia) was murdered by a gang of men which all of them were turned out to be idols. After that, Minori puts his uncle's idol magazines featuring him in boxes and look at the picture of said uncle, wondering what he thinks of idols and wants to find out the answer by becoming an idol.
Kyoji: His father called him a failure when he saw the rejection letter. He ran to his bedroom, packing up his belongings and his brother showed up, calling him a loser for running away from his well-established family as he blocked Kyoji's punch with his hand. Afterwards, Kyoji swores that he'll succeed without his family's name.

Agreed. I honestly hate the concept of Cinderella Girls constantly adding new characters, as it doesn't give them the opportunity to flesh out the ones they already have. This is why I largely prefer Million Live's cast as a whole because its static and it gives everyone a chance to become more fleshed out. I do hope these are the only new additions and after that, they focus on fleshing out the boys we have because Side M has potential and the boys are certainly growing on me as characters.

Holy crap, that's depressing! It actually helps Pierre stick out as the light at the end of the tunnel for the unit. Makes their dynamic work better as a whole, imo.

Post by: Johnrevenge on April 24, 2015, 05:28:43 PM
Yeah I also hope that they don't add more idols after these ones. And luckily Cinderlla Girls stopped making new characters a long while ago. I have to say that I like the three games (I have to confess that I haven't played none of them because I don't know Japanese and I doubt that my mobile would have enough space for them xddd), mainly for the characters (many of them are pretty interesting for me). But yeah Cinderella Girls had the issue of having too many characters, that's why I always try to focus on the ones that are voiced for the moment, or I would turn crazy :P

But the new unit looked nice (at least for what I saw from that shadow image xddd)

I wonder which two units will be the next ones to have their CD Debut (crossing fingers for FRAME, I wanna hear Seiji ^^)

Minori: The idol fanboy. His uncle (I believe, got that from jpwikipedia) was murdered by a gang of men which all of them were turned out to be idols. After that, Minori puts his uncle's idol magazines featuring him in boxes and look at the picture of said uncle, wondering what he thinks of idols and wants to find out the answer by becoming an idol.
Kyoji: His father called him a failure when he saw the rejection letter. He ran to his bedroom, packing up his belongings and his brother showed up, calling him a loser for running away from his well-established family as he blocked Kyoji's punch with his hand. Afterwards, Kyoji swores that he'll succeed without his family's name.
Holy carp, iM@S! Since when did you become so violent and depressing?

What did Minori's uncle do to them? Exposing scandals?

Looks like SideM is getting some new characters.

People are spreading interesting rumors that they could be the SideM siblings jumping the bandwagon.

(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l591/Jennifer_Au/sideM%20siblings.png)
According to this Japanese twitter post I found, this is a list of all the siblings the SideM idols had. (Tsubasa's little brother aside...)

Kaoru -> an elder sister
Hideo -> 2 elder sisters, 2 little brothers, and a younger sister
Seiji -> (seldom mentions his siblings?) At least, we know he has a niece.
Shiki -> an elder sister
Hayato -> an older brother
Rei -> an elder sister
Shouta -> 2 elder sisters
Hokuto -> a little sister
Yusuke -> a younger brother (That would be Kyosuke)
Kyosuke -> an elder brother (That would be Yusuke)
Shiro -> an older brother
Kanon -> a younger sister

I don't know what to think of this mysterious trio idol unit. But from what I know and my Japanese friend who has been leaking this info, they plan to reveal who they are next week.

Now that you look at it, I think it is Ryo. But what become of Dearly Stars?

The third profile was revealed and now more people are thinking that the silhouette is Ryo.

Likes: Fan letters, leisurely walks
Dislikes: Ghosts, Heights/High Places
Hobbies: Cleaning, Cooking

Ryo also has the hobbies of cleaing and cooking... and Ryo also dislikes ghosts and high places...

More profile gets revealed as the Twitter campaign progresses
Incidentally the Twitter campaign tweet is "one of the new unit's idols is that idol!?"

Profile of the first guy

Initials: D.K
Likes: Hanamaru Egao (A Hardworking Smile)
Dislikes: Rats
Hobbies: Playing Fighting games
Special Skills: Iaido (art of drawing the Japanese sword) & Katsuramuki (A knife technique when Japanese chefs do a rotary cutting or thinly slicing into a long strip foods like daikon, carrots, and other vegetables. It's one of the most difficult, yet essential techniques for professional Japanese chefs. Katsuramuki is a technique that young chefs take pains to master. They purchase vegetables with their own money and often practice at home in their free time. During apprenticeships, young chefs must master this and other knife techniques on vegetables before ever touching a fish.)
The reason you aim to become an idol: Because it was somewhat interesting to meet with (my partners).

The blue is definitely another expy =/ sigh
The hairstyle on the yellow guy matched with Ryou's but the idol form makes it hard to confirm it.

The rest of the yellow idol's prof has been revealed

Special Skills: Dance, Disguise
Reason for being Idol: Because not giving up on their own dream gives strength to someone else's dream.

Initials: R.A.

It doesn't seem like it could be anyone else. And that 'someone'...

Umi and Hanayo?! :o

Personally, I don't really wanna see Ryo in Side M even if he is the original male idol.

Why? I understand he isn't the best singer but not the worst either! If Ryo is in SideM, he may get new songs and development unlike Ai and Eri.

It's not really the song and development (he actually got some pretty good development from what I've read of the manga and I LOVED Dazzling World), the problem I have is "for what reason did he defect from 876 to 315?". Every defect, all two of them, three if you consider first and second vision connected, had a reason behind it. Miki's was, as petty as it is, because Takagi ate her lunch. Jupiter defected from 961 to 315 because......would you wanna work for Kuroi? The only possible reason I can think of is that Ryo wants a proper male idol debut and doesn't feel he'll get that at 876.

There's no other person in iM@S that would have the same name initials as R.A. (Besides Ritsuko).

President Ishikawa of 876Pro did say that if Ryo can reach "Top Idol/S Rank" then she will let him debut as a male idol. Perhaps this follows the story after Dearly Stars and the iM@S anime?

The second question is...what became of Dearly Stars? Now that Ryo switched agencies, would Ai and Eri continue to debut as "Dearly Stars" or would they disband and create a new idol unit?
Title: Re: The iDOLM@STER: SideM (mobage)
Post by: Tengu B on April 27, 2015, 02:58:12 PM
There is the weird possibility that Ryo works for 876 and 315 at the same time, which considering Ryo's luck isn't out of the question.
Also there was the recent Million Live cameo...

I should have written "more development". As developed as Ai and Eri are, they probably won't get new songs and Ryo may.

The only possible reason I can think of is that Ryo wants a proper male idol debut and doesn't feel he'll get that at 876.

I think so too.

Look in the topic "Future of im@s DS" for the information.

Then again, Million Live and SideM are separate from each other, unless Namco completely supervises SM like they do ML, in which case its safe to assume they're in the same universe. I know Namco doesn't fully own CG at least.

And if that's the case, holy crap Ryo's paycheck must be MASSIVE.

This is quite interesting. It means SideM still has a female VA if they need one for live performances. I'm hoping Ai and Eri get to appear in ML and CG respectively.
Storywise, it could just be that DS is being outsourced to a different company like how AKB48 members are signed onto different agencies but published under the AKB name.

The more I think about it, the more open I am to Ryo being in SM, since at the very least DS is ginna be somewhat relevant. Also, I'd finally get my dang wish for the character after so long: Ryo treated as a male idol.

I know people are speculating that Ai and/or Eri would be in either Cinderella Girls or Million Live. Granted, if this even IS Ryo. I am 99% confident this is Ryo, but a part of me is thinking this is some guy who is exactly like Ryo, but with a different name and is a separate character. I've seen it happen before.

If Tomato appeared at SSA instead of just Sanpei, and KanaHana apparently (according to Twitter) mentioned Eri on a radio show I can't find the name of, in addition to DS receiving the ML cards together, I doubt we're losing Ai and Eri anytime soon.

Now that Ryo is confirmed, We might get to hear Sanpei do a deeper voice? But if they were going to put Ai and Eri in anything it'd be million live, it just makes more sense since ml is 765, they've had cameos in ml cards, and 876 is closer to the main series. They could also maybe bring Yumeko or Cineria (that'd be interesting) back to fill in a spot for Ryo.

Got in the event at about 1400, then a while later I dropped till I was at 6000 or so...but once I used the Premium ticket, I bounced back up to 1500.

The first day of the event is easy as you can get to higher ranking easier. The problem is getting through the rest of the event and maintaining your position, all the while trying to not waste your energy bars and energy drinks. And immense tapping.

Never knew SideM had an Android app! I can't wait for the iOS app so I can stop using laggy Safari and the translating trash that is Google Chrome.

It's already out on the Japanese app market.  If you think Safari is laggy, I'm not sure how you'd feel about using the app then lol..  Fastest experience would be to use your computer and a client-switcher like cTouch r4

I wanted to download it from Google Play but but it says not available in my region. Since the app is Japan only, I tried different ways to change my region and download it but nothing works.

Announcement of the SideM anime plz! (ST@RTING LINE 03 & 04 also!)
 

I would love a Side M anime, but I can't see it happening that early. You know, Cinderella Girls also has been around some years till the anime came out.

But if there would be an anime, I would totally watch it!

Any predictions for the new staring line CDs?
I think one of them will be High x Joker!

Announcement of the SideM anime plz! (ST@RTING LINE 03 & 04 also!)

An anime seems a bit too soon right now, considering that Cinderella Girls still isn't finished until fall of this year. And even then, Million Live is probably gonna get an anime before SideM. Though I would love to watch a SideM anime once that comes out.

ST@RTING LINE 03 & 04 is pretty much inevitable, since it has been a suitable amount of time since 01 and 02 have been out. I also agree that HighXJoker is gonna be next. They're so popular, it'd be a shocker NOT to do theirs early to rack in the sales earlier. Either way, I'll be happy since ST@RTING LINE so far has had an INCREDIBLE start with it's music, imo.

EDIT: Somethin's up!

Ren's profile needs to get translated & updated.

Yeah I also think that ST@RTING LINE 03 & 04 will be announced this Saturday, probably HighXJoker (yeah they are really popular), and I really wish for FRAME (they are my favourite unit of all the Game and although individually they weren't that popular, as an unit they were one of the most populars)

And I also agree that an anime is too early, Million Live would come before (many of the girls appeared in the movie)

Just got around to checking out what Side M is about; skimmed through the characters, and just listened to some of the first 2 CDs.(I even went as far as to watch some vids of their seiyuus)  I'm liking this so far, a lot more than I thought I would.  Some of the guys look really cool(those traps got me so bad lol), I felt a brief moment of confusion after seeing the Side M Ryo...  :o  And I like their songs as well(I can still feel that familiar im@s spirit within), especially their main theme, Drive A Live.

Overall, I'm happy they're treating this with the same kind of love as the other members of the franchise and not as some cheap, half-a$$ed cash grab of a side series.

I wouldn't mind seeing an anime made out of this either.(after ML gets their share of the spotlight of course XD)

So it took me a couple tries to actually figure out where the song previews were posted; I guess I checked too early AND viewed the wrong pages =P
I am definitely loving Beit's first song, especially their DRIVE A LIVE. I could immediately tell whose voice when to whom and I enjoyed both songs to the end.
I was curious to hear HighxJoker's DRIVE A LIVE considering the arrangement would be different due to the first unit CD release with 5 idols, but it was still good. It was hard to tell between the characters though so it looks like I'll have to get their cards in-game to hear what each sounds like. Their first song was amazing nonetheless, it definitely sounded like iM@S.

Now that the the CDs are out (still haven't heard the full versions), I will say that I like the personal touches the songs give for Beit and HighxJoker. The 2nd songs surprised me in a good way, which is great because while the 1st songs aren't that bad, they didn't stick to me that much. Still, I like DRAMATIC STARS' "DRIVE A LIVE" the best. CD sales wise, it's not surprising that HighxJoker sold better of the two.


And as a bonus, here's the lines for HighxJoker's songs because telling which one sings is a pain. (mostly between Hayato's and Haruna's)
HIGH JUMP NO LIMIT & DRIVE A LIVE (http://nico.ayakaze.com/player/sm/sm26617659)
JOKER➚オールマイティ (JOKER➚Almighty) (http://=http://nico.ayakaze.com/player/sm/sm26736472J) (Note that the CC lyrics are a bit inaccurate)

Who on earth composed Beit's second song? That was all types of awesome, seriously. So much better than SMILE ENGAGE, and I got a slight psychological horror vibe listening to that song. HighxJoker's second song was awesome too. I'm almost being driven to buy the CDs now. Saving up for Love Live! singlws though =P

Miki Watanabe is the one who composed Omoi wa ETERNITY. He also did Kumi Koda's "Butterfly", AAA's "BLOOD on FIRE" and "Let it beat!", Ayumi Hamasaki's "Rule", Kou Shibasaki's "Kage", etc.

Here's the rest (https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B8%A1%E8%BE%BA%E6%9C%AA%E6%9D%A5).

It'll start on Sunday, August 30 at 10 P.M JST (9 A.M EST).
The DRAMATIC STARS seiyuus will be there of course and “other people” as well. I expect to see FRAME but I'm not sure who'll be the other unit. Probably either S.E.M or Cafe Parade.

And for entertainment purposes...

Jiro and Michio sounds too young for their age but whatever.

W and S.E.M for this wave isn't super surprising since they just happen to be one of the first 6 units (http://denyansu.tumblr.com/post/116269635893/t-shirts) to get merchandise (http://denyansu.tumblr.com/post/127205870038/ok-so-neowingcdjapan-posted-new-merch-which).

OMG! You guys! I just came back Japan and you won't believe how much things I've experienced there!

My friend got an extra Sun Side ticket for SideM 1st Live and she asked me if I wanted it, I obviously said yes! Later she helped me get my Moon Side ticket from TicketCamp. (Japan is very strict about selling iM@S live tickets for money and if you get caught or own one of those tickets in their blacklist, they cancel your ticket and kick you out right before the live even started. However, some Japs have a 'special' way to get by this rule.)
(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l591/Jennifer_Au/12299339_10201099129717922_6768522696417921332_n.jpg)

I woke up early to buy SideM 1st Live goods. Of course, you gotta support your unit with your tee!
(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l591/Jennifer_Au/12342688_10201096368528894_1674387313039869914_n.jpg)

Queuing for goods was the hard part...It was cold. Like REALLY cold.
(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l591/Jennifer_Au/12295271_10201096566693848_3575331254834680009_n.jpg)

While waiting in line I decided to exchange my Producer card with other people...(I noticed that a lot of them only printed one side.)
(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l591/Jennifer_Au/12347944_10201100465831324_7175312874403597845_n.jpg)

And if they don't have a Producer card, they gave me candy or snacks. (Omiya, Arigatou!)
(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l591/Jennifer_Au/12295425_10201097059586170_2820240877579664192_n.jpg)

The moment I got to the counter. Parkas and T-shirts were sold out, then glowstick set...

Luckily, I had some money to buy what I wanted. (That's just a small part of it. I also bought a bag and a poster.)
(http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l591/Jennifer_Au/12313822_10201099130877951_8890701207476114162_n.jpg)

Before the live even started, when we watched the SideM CD CMs. A lot of people were turned on their penlights/glowsticks and started cheering at the screen. Changing their colors as each unit flashed through the screen. Some of them practiced their calls while the karaoke versions of the song played in the background.

Sun Side (I cried the moment it started, it was just too much for me. I waited so long for this and finally it happened...):

Planet scape: The audience had the strongest reaction during this song and the whole area turned into a sea of green. (Jupiter fans have been waiting for 5 years and finally!!! QAQ) The song started off with a night sky and the moon and then there they are...Jupiter sitting there, surrounded by a neon green light lit by the fans, slowly singing their first verse of the lyrics and then standing up, and then at the middle of the song, the mic stand came from the bottom of the stage, the moment they grabbed onto the mic stand, a projection of the moon was shown below them while standing in a upside-down triangle formation. Terashima singing his solo verse....Oh, the feels.

Joker Almighty: It was insane. Before I went to Japan, me and my friends practiced our calls and when this song played, it happened to involve twirling our glowsticks and our towels and a whole load of cheering. It got everyone hyped and heated up!

Study Equal Magic: S.E.M doing the Do-Dai dance during the chorus was awesome! Nuff said.

Victory Believer: THEY HAD INFLATABLE SOCCER BALLS THAT WERE GIFTS FOR THE FANS! AAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!

The President of 315Pro got voiced! (And is really into the "Passion" thing.)

During the Live, they revealed the faces of the new idol candidates (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32pzGZKHmBc) during the SideM 1st Live.
Sanjo Goro looks like Luke Fon Fabre (http://aselia.wikia.com/wiki/Luke_fon_Fabre).

Here's the tracklist.

01. 喝彩!~花鳥風月~ (Kassai! ~Kachoufuugetsu~/Applause! ~Beauties of Nature~)*
Lyricist: Youhei Matsui Composer: Luca Arranger: Naoya Endou
02. Drama part 1 ~Sai~
03. 和風堂々!~WAnderful NIPPON!~ (Wafuu Doudou! ~WAnderful NIPPON!~/Japanesque Magnificent! ~WAnderful NIPPON!~)
Lyricist: Youhei Matsui Composer: Tetsushi Enami Arranger: Takao Kawada
04. Drama part 2 ~Sai & FRAME~
05. DRIVE A LIVE (Sai ver.)
Lyricist/Composer: BNSI (Kanako Kakino) Arranger: Shunsuke Takizawa [TRYTONELABO]

* 喝彩 (kassai) is a wordplay on 喝采 (kassai, meaning applause), replacing 采 with 彩, which is this unit's name (and 彩 also has 采 in it. Go figures).
* 花鳥風月 is a Japanese proverb that literally means "Flower, Bird, Wind, Moon" but commonly translates to "experience the beauty of nature, learn about yourself". It's a pretty common theme in most of Takane's image songs.

Anyways, Sai doesn't disappoint. They're pretty fun to listen and I'm looking forward to the full version.

AWESOME!

The male fans were totally super prepared with call books (I didn't get them :'( ) Then, during the live they helped the beginner female fans/fans that haven't been to a iM@S live before with the calls.
While most of us followed whatever the audience was doing, amongst the group were some guys who were yelling signals to us. Telling us when to do this call or the other, it was really thoughtful of them.

Most of the male fans I saw were wearing their CG Tee or SideM's mini live Tee or 10th iM@S Tee or M@sters of the Idol World 2015 Tee, it was like joining a big family when I was there. That togetherness when doing the calls and cheering for their seiyuus (and mine!) was really heartwarming.

Hm...I suppose about an hour and a half. In between songs, there were segments of them appearing at different parts of the stage and around the audience speaking their quotes in character and revealing of the new idol candidates and speaking to the audience.

Most of us were expecting Jupiter singing "Alice or Guilty" and "Koi wo Hajimeyou", however it seems like it was only limited to 315Pro songs only. Guess they really want to cut all ties from 961Pro.

As you may obviously know, Ishihara, one of the general directors of idolmaster left Bandai Namco (http://forum.project-imas.com/index.php/topic,2444.0.html).

I took the time to do a little research about him, what I found was rather intriguing. It's true that Ishihara was only scenario writer for iM@S2. But there was a lot more than that...

Everyone may assume that SideM is simply a branch from the iM@S series, and Ishinara is in charge of the Main iM@S series, Cinderella Girls and Million Live. It's like he has no tie-ins with SideM. But, that's where you're wrong.

Recall back to the very beginning, the very starting point of SideM...When iM@S2 was introduced (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Tokyo_Game_Show_2010) to the new male idol unit - Jupiter.

"THE iDOLM@STER" series has always been marketed toward men. From the original iM@S arcade, XBOX360 and PSP, it has rather good results. But when it went to iM@S2, when they decided that a part of the characters were unproducible and included a new male idol unit into the mix. It caused caused a gigantic uproar amongst the fans. And thus, dubbed the very incident, the '9.18 Incident' by the fans.

This very decision was made by none other than, Akihiro Ishihara himself.

Quote
"Anyway, it wasn't a secret that I was hated for this. I should have taken into account the atmosphere we created before we "kidnapped" some of the idols. This misuse of information and the accidental reversal of the meaning makes me feel guilty."


It was said the rival unit that was originally going to be in iM@S2 was supposed to be the characters from Million Live (https://twitter.com/ayucoNL/status/693964503902322688) (At the time Million Live wasn't announced yet); Julia (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Julia), Momoko Suou (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Momoko_Suou), and Reika Kitakami (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/Reika_Kitakami).

However, Ishihara thought that the male players wouldn't feel the sense of rivalry against a female rival unit. Therefore, he decided to use male characters.

Although Jupiter plays an antagonist role in iM@S2, the character setting was very complete. After the game and official radio broadcasts, fans began to acknowledge Jupiter. Their fanbase increased and with that released their first CD (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/THE_IDOLM@STER_2_%22JUPITER%22), 3 manga releases based on them, until 5 years later under the title 'SideM' held their first live.

The path may be long, but without Ishihara's decision. Jupiter wouldn't exist, SideM wouldn't even be a thing.

I didn’t get into Im@s until a few weeks after Im@2 Xbox 360 came out (so about 6 months after 9/18).  I really liked Jupiter when I saw them.  They were cool, talented guys.  (I recognize that the producer is like a generic visual novel protagonist, so kind of a lame character.  So, it was awesome, at least for me, to have some cool guys in a game like this).  Besides, they redeem themselves when they quit 961, and when they physically stopped Kuroi from ruining Chihaya’s concert any further in the anime.

They may have moved on to Side M.  But, on the inside I feel they’re still a part of the 765 universe kind of like Leon from OFA. 

SideM wouldn't even be a thing.[/i]

Hmm…I was thinking because of things like Uta no Prince-sama that companies wanted to grab a share of the male idol market.

Very interesting insight.

I also didn't know about Julia, Reika, and Momoko being the "original Project Jupiter" for iM@S 2. I knew the latter two were planned, but I wasn't sure to what extent.

You're welcome.

Jupiter never had a part in Kuroi's dirty schemes, they only wanted a fair battle. You can also see them make an appearance in Shiny Festa (Honey Sound/Harmonic Score).

I wonder if they'll ever continue with Leon as rival now...Hmm...

UtaPri has always been a major Otome/male idol producing game brand in Japan. Ever since SideM started, I've began to notice other male idol games like; iDOLISH7, Ai☆chu and Ensemble Stars! start arising from the surface. I don't know when it started, though it's gotten a lot more apparent over time.

However, Ishihara thought that the male players wouldn't feel the sense of rivalry against a female rival unit. Therefore, he decided to use male characters.

Although Jupiter plays an antagonist role in iM@S2, but the character setting was very complete. After the game and official radio broadcasts, fans began to acknowledge Jupiter.

I believed in this from the start. Simply adding more female rivals would've simply made all fans just want them to join 765. Though, Leon, I guess, is an exception because she is canonically too popular to pull a Project Fairy.

I was thinking because Leon wouldn't fit in 765 since she's has much more experience.  I mean, she's already a top idol (from America) who's "over ranked" when the game begins.  Thus, she served not only as a rival, but also as a mentor by helping the idols out with their problems.  Even Chihaya call her Sensei at the ending of her EX episodes, which shows Leon's status (and helpfulness) even though the 765 have become top idols in the end.

So, it would seem kind of strange to see Leon's status lowered to the same level as the 765 idols (rookie status) if she were to join 765.

That I don't know, I hope it's voiced by the OLD seiyuu but the whole cast so far is all male. So, will Ryo be an exception or not? We'll just have to wait and see.

This is a cross unit CD, which means two units will pair up for a song. We won't know who pairs with whom until further notice.
That would also mean in the upcoming SideM concerts, some of the seiyuus won't be able to attend. (And that's bad because Jupiter only has one person that will attend the concert now and that's Kanbara Daichi, Hokuto's Seiyuu.)

EDIT: To clarify, this cross unit CD is only limited to the units that attended the First Live.

Wouldn't bet too much on it, but yeah that'll be an interesting mix! I also kinda want the SideM world to meet the main series' world and also the CG world. Like maybe the idols randomly meet or idk maybe a new female idol in 315 or a male idol in 765/346. THAT will be interesting. (pls dont kill me)

You probably already know this, but I guess this sort of happened (before 315 existed).  Team Jupiter were once part of 961 and were the main rival unit in Idolm@ster 2 and the anime.  They were also rank up rivals (no story/dialogue) in One for All.  In one episode of the CG anime, there was a game show where a question was asked about a picture (silhouette), who is this male idol unit?  The answer was Jupiter.

But, there's likely not going to be any interactions between genders in the im@s world (im@s fans know about the incident that took place back in 2010).  At the very most, there probably will be cameo appearances.

Still, your idea would be interesting to see.

I have just red the wiki page on the 9.18 incident. That's really horrible and bamco can be partly blamed in this situation. Taking a pioneer member of the storyline off the sequel is just really bad, and the way they clean up the damage is really bad. I know this feeling since i'm in the LLSIP fandom for quite long and how veterans' acted when Aqours was announced is pretty close to what happened. But how they attacked the seiyuus are quite unacceptable. But still, i do hope 2nd Vision can fix the mistakes made in the early days in the future, but completely cutting off SideM from the main world just to please the male dating sim fans audience is not fair for new fans like me that came from SideM.

Yes, that's what I was referring to in my last post.  Sorry, for not clarifying.

But still, i do hope 2nd Vision can fix the mistakes made in the early days in the future,

They pretty much already did by having those 4 idols (Ritsuko, Ami, Azusa, Iori) to be producible again in One for All and the newest game Platinum Stars.

but completely cutting off SideM from the main world just to please the male dating sim fans audience is not fair for new fans like me that came from SideM.

I think Cinderella Girls is also pretty much cut off from the main series except for cameo appearances and a few song collaboration.  (765pro were initially in the old mobage CG game but were taken out real quick).  But, yes, Side M will likely be separate.

Side M connections with 765pro is through Jupiter and Ryo (he is Ritsuko's cousin who initially was part of Dearly Stars before moving to Side M).

Beit's with S.E.M on the last day of August.

Aww, Beit x Jupiter would've been awesome tho, cause of the juxtaposition between the 2.(bad boys and princes)  And I wanted to hear Shouta + Pierre sing together! XD

I'm trying to understand the song "MOON NIGHTのせいにして"  because It's currently trending in the JP SideM community.

So far from the help of the JP fans, the lyrics mention a phantom thief that goes in the night and there's a...'sexual reference' to it...? (I'm getting an "Agent Yoru wo Yuku" feeling...)

EDIT: Found the lyrics!

Excited about this song! :)

And are you talking about this line? 誰にも見せたらダメだよ二人きり秘密のファンタムシーフ
That line that mentions the phantom thief is something like this, I think, "Don't show anyone, the secret of the phantom thief is only between the two of us" (sorry for awkward translation ;; tired rn)

Now you can watch it too! :D (If you see my penlight near the bottom right corner, it's one penlight. Really, I only brought one and didn't have enough money to buy the whole set. That's me! You don't have to worry where I sit on both Sun and Moon side, because it's the same seat. ;D )

Ryo kept Sanpei as his VA and I cannot be any more pleasantly surprised.

Did not expect Legenders to get voiced so soon. That pretty much means every single character in SideM has a voice now. Except Ken. :p

Also, the Mofus being voiced by males is something I didn't expect, but they still pull it off rather well, so it's fine. Kanon especially sounds dead on.

...i smell upcoming 2nd anniversary event... i really hope it was a bingo typed---- (since i kinda unfamiliar with the rest of the events.) and i hope they got some new SR for Kyosuke as the reward or something. (I also don't mind for another SR Touma but... he already have a new one added in recent event so....)

but i must agree tho... DS and HxJ one totally worth it. (even though i kinda slightly disappointed by HxJ's Our song because it kinda slow compared to their song on st@rting line.)

I don't think there'll be another 2nd Anniv event, they already wrapped those up during the first Anniv Disc and the next event is a Kogadou + W event soooo yeahh. But it might be possible after the next event tho.

This link includes Complete Side (Sun, Moon and the backstage scenes.) The quality is good and well...mind the flying comments here and there. Oh, there's Chinese subtitles now! Great, I'll go watch again and relive those moments at the first live. Also, if you like a challenge, see if you can find me! I'm only holding one penlight, that wouldn't be hard to find...Heh.

Yo! Thanks for the link, Clear Blue! XD
I was planning to just wait till people post clips on youtube lol.



That was an amazing first live!  I just wanted to see my Smile Engage tbh, but I ended up sitting thru the whole thing lol.  The feels... It felt like I was rediscovering im@s lives all over again.

Damn, I actually cried for Jupiter.  You could tell that they've been wanting this for a long time, Shouta's VA in particular.  He was on the verge on tears the whole time, I wanted to give him a (bro) hug lol.  They also gave the best performances overall imo.  They really deserved this chance to be on stage.(this was their first time right?  ???)

I always enjoy watching Dramatic Stars perform; they always look like they're having a great time, especially Yuuma(Kaoru) and they're so damn sauve!  Their blend of voices is just perfect. XD

I like W's songs a lot better live.  They're like the Futamis of SideM lol and even their image color is yellow.

Not ashamed to admit that I broke down at Smile Engage lol.  Beit's vocals were great too, especially on ETERNITY.
Disney killed princes.

Holy crap, that was so good.  2 hours well spent. XD


Also, I've been wondering this for a while, but what's that chant thing I always see the fans do at the end of every live?  I see it at the end of non-im@s lives as well.


Also, if you like a challenge, see if you can find me! I'm only holding one penlight, that wouldn't be hard to find...Heh.
Can we get another hint, like which side you were on? XD  I may have saw you but idk lol.

So, the mobage devs posted this which talked about how a voice is chosen. In case you're wondering, one person out of 400 people is selected to voice said character by voice quality, acting, singing, and individuality.

First of all, you're welcome.

That chant you mentioned it's "アイマス最高!" (or iM@S Saiko!).
The routine goes like this:

Quote from: The iM@S chant
アイマス最高!
Clap, clap, clap!
Clap, clap!
Clap! x6
It's a tradition whenever an iM@S live or an iM@S segment of a live has ended. I kinda forgot what it meant though.

I'm in both sides and in the same seat.

Say Clear Blue. Are you going to buy a bunch of CDs for the next concerts tickets lottery too? If so, I am once again wiling to buy some spares from you ^^
Sure! I'm always buying the CDs simply for the in game codes and for the SideM 2nd lottery codes. I've got a whole stack of CDs at home.

Also for anyone who's interested in the lottery draw for SideM 2nd (as in how it works), the codes in each CD can be drawn twice. So, you can choose to either draw for Day 1 (Brilliant Side) x2, Day 2 (Shining Side) x2 or both days each.

I managed to find a friend who's interested in going to SideM 2nd, so I gave all my codes for him to draw. But alas, E-plus is a jerk, all of my codes turned into scraps of paper. My only chances to get a ticket again is either "315Pro Night!" radio broadcast for NicoNico Premium members only, In-game purchase packs which I won't pay for, or wait for round 2 of CD lottery codes.

In other news, a little while ago in SideM. There was a voting event called "Exploding Passion! 315CD battle!" about which event gets a sequel or prequel to the original story.
More detailed info right here (http://denyansu.tumblr.com/post/149408101028/315cd-battle)!

The results were out a while ago and it's...
Group A (http://denyansu.tumblr.com/post/150345577148/were-getting-a-cybernetics-wars-prequel=)! With Jun as Protagonist and Touma as Rival!
I don't mind what role Touma gets as long as his group wins and I'm really glad that it happened!

The summary of Cybernetics Wars ~機械仕掛けの反逆者~ (”Cybernetics Wars: Mechanical Rebels”) is it took place when androids started rebelling against humanity and how K.G.D. took them down and Group A's story is a prequel to Cybernetics Wars, it takes place around the time androids were first built (and possibly how it leads to the androids' rebellion).

Cybernetic Wars is a really well-known event in the SideM community. A lot of fans were really into the story and how the members of THE Kogadou and Beit develop into their roles, how did they understand their role and getting over some of their personal hardships. And because of its rich story, it got a lot of fan theories and artworks that raised a lot of attention that made fans wanting for more. It even became in actual doujin event in Japan simply for this event!

I can't wait to see how the CD will come out and how the story will progress from here!

Oh my! As expected.... i'm very happy to see CW got it's prequel! I love both the event and the story so much!
I'm looking forward to see the CD and how they did on this ;v; (Especially Touma. ahahah- i dunno why but he fits that rival role pretty much.)

Unfortunately, it was sold out the moment it was on sale and now P's everywhere are asking to exchange their curry packages for other curry packages.

I wish I could try them too.
Jupiter's Sweet Chicken Curry, I want this. I missed out on the Jupiter Curry and Hokuto's Angels drink at Animate Cafe during July and August. (I wonder if it's still in stock when I go to SideM 2nd.)
S.E.M.'s Indian curry is somewhat spicy.
FRAME's European Curry is spicy. (I can't say on what level of spicy, but it's spicy.)

Each box comes with a Clear File of the Idol from that unit, but it's random.

Yep, LegenderS' cards are going to be voiced with the recent (http://kizakis.tumblr.com/post/151138259119/checkmate-%E7%9B%A4%E4%B8%8A%E3%81%AE%E6%94%AF%E9%85%8D%E8%80%85-event-cards) event (http://kizakis.tumblr.com/post/151138261009/%E5%A4%A7%E5%B1%80%E3%81%AE%E6%8E%83%E9%99%A4%E5%B1%8B%E3%82%AC%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A3-gasha-cards).

Heh, thx. :D

I also just wanted a complete collection of SideM St@rting Line CDs and 2nd Anniversary CDs. But all the in-game stuff that SideM has to offer makes it hard to ignore. (Like SR+ cards and 3-part dramas.)

Oh, speaking of cards; I did a little background check on Koron Chris, because of this one particular card (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nDavzTDa8iSSn3bMQcMrFMNgU8P2ivl6Og/view?usp=sharing)...
I got curious because of his "Periclimenes Venustus (a.k.a Graceful Anemone Shrimp)" pronunciation, it sounded so accurate (with a little Japanese accent sprinkled in it).
Turns out that he (http://www.81produce.co.jp/list.cgi?man+1561319131830) actually lived in Germany for 9 years! His English is more fluent than his German! (Click 'Other' of his profile.)

I'm planning to write an English fan letter to him, if I ever have the chance to go to SideM 2nd. (Him and Balletta Yukata (http://www.power-rise.jp/balletta_yutaka.html), perhaps.)

I already knew that sanpei could sound really manly if she wans to and she did her best in the songs to differ that ryo from dearly stars. you can feel that he is finally free to let it all out as a male idol!
the songs are all great, can't wait for the full versions

legenders

after the preview I can safely say, I like thos guys even more now that I have heared their voices!

I'm not really into male idols, but I'll say opinion about the songs I listened.

Mofumofuen's song was adorable and energetic. I love it.
Ryo's voice on new F-Lags songs was different. I expected the usual, kinda-girly voice. But, it doesn't matter to me. I still love the songs.

With this CD series coming to an end, I thought I'd be sentimental and say that this entire ST@RTING LINE series has just cemented SideM as my favorite male idol series.

I'm super picky about anisongs, and that's coming from someone with a passion for music. And coming from someone who also loves male idols... I'll admit that the songs are not as good as female anisong idols. There's something about iDOLM@STER and Love Live! songs and their production value that blows male anisongs out of the water. I don't know if it's a stigma, the voices themselves, the characters... but I've definitely felt it for a long time.

But after each SideM CD release, I'm always being pleasantly surprised by the vocals, composition, etc. You can tell Bandai, Lantis, and the seiyuu themselves have put so much heart into SideM and that's what I appreciate so much. The seiyuu shows and live appearances; these are new and growing seiyuu that we get to learn more and more about.

With that being said, I'm really excited for the future of SideM and, even with its faults, I'm glad I get to see the male anisong industry grow.

tl;dr: mixed feelings towards male anisong franchises, but sidem stands above them and alongside female anisong franchises

SideM is real

Ahem. Nice to know that last batch is ending in a nice note minus the weird falsetto used in DRIVE A LIVE.

Anyways, THE IDOLM@STER SideM ORIGIN@L PIECES 01 will have solo songs for Teru Tendo, Jiro Yamashita, Kirio Nekoyanagi, Asselin BB II, and Shiro Tachibana on November 16th.
Likewise, THE IDOLM@STER SideM ORIGIN@L PIECES 02 will have Kyoji Takajo, Shoma Hanamura, Ryu Kimura, Rei Kagura, and Ryo Akizuki this December.

Hope Lantis will put better effort in these solo songs because they tend to be hit-or-miss in their ML solo songs IMO.

Even though I am Rei P, I did not notice that he is a member of Original Pieces 02. How did I missed that?
Thanks for the Info ChocoCats.

Also, I can agree that Lantis does have poor songs now and then.
I really don't like it when they have conversations or the song itself is a character song rather than Idle song.

I take it that you don't like A la Carte Freedom, then? That's probably my favorite coupling track out of the entire ST@RTING LINE series since it's always introducing new melodies (usually most anisongs repeat the exact same melody but with different lyrics and instrumentation). The entire song makes me think of Café Parade cleaning up a café and closing for the day lmao

But you're right, Lantis definitely has their own lows. The Million Live solo songs haven't been all too great but I can see how composing five unique solo songs can get difficult sometimes.

I apologize if I offend you or anyone who likes songs with conversations in it. It's just my personal preference. 

However, I really find A la Carte Freedom, a fun song. I would like to see it on musical stage whether it is done by the voice actors, or in anime (wish they will make one in the future).

They did improve over the years. Hokuto's and Shouta's vocals have improved.

Gloria Moment (http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/GLORIA_MOMENT) is a really good song that sprinkled bits of 'Alice or Guilty' in the lyrics along with mentions of 961 Pro days.

//listened to the preview of the 3 upcoming starting line already...

surprisingly enough,
Mofumofu's songs were more... less-kiddie like than i was expected... which is awesome!
And--- Ryo's voice completely manly compared to the times when i listened to Dazzling World and his other songs on Dearly Stars... i really admire how the voice actress voiced him really well....  the rest of them did a well job too!
Legenders songs was really beautiful! I'm not really a fan of them myself (not hating them either.), but really this is amazing!

can't wait for all 3 of them to be released... and the original pieces series as well.

and, yeah, compared to the 916 times, i did see improvements of the Jupiter boys. and was glad that they finally able to be positively accepted now.
also, we need more song like that Gloria moment huehuehue- and yes, it does kind of like Alice or Guilty...

I'm loving Asselin's solo, but Teru's solo sounds a lot like Yumeiro VOYAGER, doesn't it? I was trying so hard not to notice especially when they're composed by different people lol.

I'm super excited for the 2nd album since it has more of my favorites! I'm glad we're getting solo songs like the Cinderella Girls and Million Live girls are getting. I'm a bit upset that we aren't getting actual solo albums (with each idol getting a CD) but I guess SideM just isn't popular enough (or Lantis isn't as daring as Columbia to release that many CDs) for that. I was also hoping for solo mixes of their unit songs too! (Asselin solo of Cafe Parade omg)

It has nothing to do with it being not that popular. it is quit popular  (not as much as cg and main 765) but it is really popular.
Million Live also has no solo albums, all the solo songs were on compilation albums of a bunch of idols.
This is just what lantis does with their idols it seems.

I'd also like to add that a new song named "Beyond the Dream" sung by all of 315PRO and will be released on the same day as OP3! It'll have a 315PRO mix as well as three other versions for each of the three attributes. EFFY (iirc EFFY has done quite a bit of idol songs, including MIRAI TICKET from Love Live! Sunshine!!, Birth of Color from Million Live, and Yumeiro Voyager from SideM) will be the composer for Beyond the Dream so I'm hoping we'll get a "bright and sunny" song.

I wonder how Lantis will put the three-sided album artwork on the CD itself, though? Could we be getting special trifold packaging or something? iirc the special edition SideM concert BDs had a trifold package so maybe we'll get something similar for BtD!

With almost a month away from the SideM 2nd Live, anyone wanna place their bets on what are they gonna announce during the live?

Here's some of the predictions I thought up at the moment:
SideM Anime
Yamamura Ken gets voiced
SideM gets a rhythm game
About the 6 idols from the Idol Discovery campaign
About the 3rd Idol Election
About Cybernetics Wars prologue event
Origin@l Pieces 04
A Crossover event with 765/ML/346 with new songs
(I wish tho)

I think an anime or rhythm game is pretty likely tbh! The idols are getting voiced and are even getting solos (just like the Cinderella Masters and whatnot) so the discography is quickly catching up with Deresute's song list. I think a rhythm game would be perfect for getting SideM's name out there (especially since Deresute made so much money during 2016) and an anime would be the cherry on top. I have a feeling Million Live will get an anime first though since it came out before SideM but we'll see! tbh I'm curious as to how a SideM anime would play out. Would all the idols have a part, or would it only be a select few like the Cinderella Girls anime? I guess that's why I want an anime so bad; to see how it'll all play out. (also I heard one of Million Live's seiyuu is on hiatus? Forgot where I read that or if it's even true but idk)

I'd love to see a Million Live x SideM collaboration or crossover! I think it would be really interesting to hear male idols and female idols sing together or at least interact. We got to see Jupiter cameos in the Cinderella Girls anime but iirc no Million Live or any non-Jupiter male idol? I would've thought A-1 Pictures would've pushed the Million Live cameos ever since they did the Dreaming! PV but I guess not. If Bandai Namco decides to go with a Million Live anime before the SideM one, I really hope we get to see more non-Jupiter cameos.

Looks like they'll be hosting a livestream on Niconico (Jan. 25, 8pm JST / Jan. 25, 3am PST) to preview Beyond the Dream, talk about some new in-game system, and hopefully more! I think they're gonna go over a Tales of collab as well but I can't remember which game specifically.

I really love all the English phrases! I can't wait to hear the attribute mixes so as to hopefully hear everyone individually; EFFY's never let me down with his songs. You can tell the song was written with a concert audience in mind with all the little cheers (like "Start!" "Flash!" "Red!" "Blue!") I can tell "315!" will be really epic to hear during the 2nd live.

I think this song would've been perfect with an animated PV just like Dreaming!.

Just re-watched the NicoNicoBroadcast (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47KumUc1ESw) today and it was awesome!

SideM Greeting Tour 2017 (http://lantis.jp/sidem/tour2017/) was unexpected to me as I thought they would wait until they had a little more experience on stage before an actual tour around Japan. Sadly, I don't think I'm gonna attend to their tour after SideM 2nd. My wallet needs to recover for a while.

New P-card function, I've been having fun with it last night and it was fun, I really liked that you get to choose your own background and matching it up with different idols, the only downside I had was to buy backgrounds via points which I had to gain them from events.

Yes, I didn't get a ticket for the live itself. But at least I got a ticket for the Live Viewing which is easier and available in theaters everywhere in Japan. I'm glad they got to broadcast it.

I'll be at the venue to buy the Live Goods then I have to run over to the nearest theater. If they sell it over there, I'll keep a look out for it.

Oh gosh, I'm gonna scream if they announced a M@STERS OF THE IDOL WORLD with SideM. That's what I really wanted for a very long time, a giant iM@S concert with every fan from every iM@S series in one concert venue.
It'll also be the first time to see male and female "idols" sing together, this has never happened in any idol game before.

Even though they hardly got off the ground, I mean right after 2nd; it's straight for the Greeting Tour, I'm amazed. Million Live didn't start their tour until the 3rd.

Oh gosh, I'm gonna scream if they announced a M@STERS OF THE IDOL WORLD with SideM. That's what I really wanted for a very long time, a giant iM@S concert with every fan from every iM@S series in one concert venue.
It'll also be the first time to see male and female "idols" sing together, this has never happened in any idol game before.

AI MUST GO would've been awesome with DRAMATIC STARS singing oh my god just thinking about it gives me chills

Fortunately we've been getting a lot of promo art and advertisements with all four "poster characters" (Haruka / Mirai / Uzuki / Teru) lately so I feel like there's hope for 315PRO at the next IDOL WORLD! If not this year, it will definitely come soon :)

ORIGIN@L PIECES 04 is Kaoru, Hokuto, Kei, Kuro, and Saki. You can preview "Because" by Kaoru, "   流るゝ風の如く ~和敬清寂~" by Kuro, and "フェイバリットに踊らせて" by Saki in-game right now! The other tracks are "ROMANTIC SHAKER" by Hokuto and "Sanctuary World" by Kei.

This is definitely my favorite PIECES album so far! "Because" is giving me "Venus Syndrome" vibes and I'm gonna bet "ROMANTIC SHAKER" is a jazz song.

Here's the official website, it just links to the trailer and there's nothing special about it unfortunately ^^; Maybe one 3D model would've been nice to see, Scamco...

Kinda surprised we're not getting a Million Live rhythm game or even a ML anime before this, tbh. They were kinda building up to it with ML idols being in the iM@S movie, that one interview where they said "An ML anime is being considered," and then the animated Dreaming! PV. I'm wondering if they'll announce something at the next live concert, perhaps?

Either way, this is great news for the franchise. Scamco also said the game has been downloaded over a million times so I think LIVE ON ST@GE is the perfect way to bring in more money players, especially since Deresute is so popular.

It kinda makes sense since male idols won't be directly competing with Deresute, but yeah really surprised ML wasn't next.

Honestly, I'm super exited for the game. Only if we ever get the 765pro or Million Live! rhythm game...

Somebody better grab that phone 'cause I called it!

After 3 days of waiting in line to buy Live goods in close to sub zero temperatures and meeting all the different P's, I can say that I had a wonderful time here.

Once I head back home, I'll start loading up the pictures and afterthoughts of the 2nd Live. I have a lot to tell you guys and it was awesome!

So excited for all the news! Can't believe SideM is growing so fast, to think that it all started with a slow game without a voice cast and now they're all a big family ayyy

For the ppl who went to the live, does some of you have the magazine that you could get at it? I'm interested in the pages with the cast's pictures, so if someone owns it and can upload the scans somewhere I'd be very glad ;; (I'm talking about this (https://twitter.com/aihidakas/status/830797914423300097) pages)

That's the official pamphlet that was sold at the live venue.
I bought it, unfortunately my computer broke and it might take a while to fix. I can take photos, if you like.

We're getting studio and staff information on 315 so hopefully we can expect some anime screenshots, maybe a PV, and maybe the main twelve ~ fifteen they'll focus on like in Cinderella Girls? I'm mostly really excited about LIVE ON ST@GE since I have no doubts the anime will be great.

I'm a bit skeptical because its A-1 (pierrot would've been nice but oh well, its the im@s routine) but the staffs seem like new-but-experienced and even the director has drew a Jupiter fanart before so they seem to actually love SideM and I am not doubting the quality.

Every Anim@s by a1 will be better than what Xenoglossia was....
I am actually excited for a1 pictures, they did well with the otehr two animes
the only thing I am concerned about it that there will be a lot of drama as seen in anim@s und dereani... I can't see the male Idols crying or quitting or anything like that...

I really hope ryo will be seen often xD

OMG! After this event with Altessimo and F-LAGS, it's gonna be the long awaited event that I've been waiting for...Cybernetics Wars ZERO!!!

Here's the details from the last event's story:
Quote from: Me!
The summary of Cybernetics Wars ~機械仕掛けの反逆者~ (”Cybernetics Wars: Mechanical Rebels”) is it took place when androids started rebelling against humanity and how K.G.D. took them down and Group A's story is a prequel to Cybernetics Wars, it takes place around the time androids were first built (and possibly how it leads to the androids' rebellion).

This prequel story takes place when they invented the world's first androids with sentiment and how people began to bond between them forming friendships. Then starts the Ominc Crisis and then Overwatch...I mean...The first members of K.G.D were formed!

(I thought it was better to make a separate thread for this but then I thought I could as well also post it in the game's thread too)
I kinda want a Brazilian idol in Side M, but different from Naty and Elena (though as a Brazilian I love them both, for as stereotypical as they are). He has to be a Caucasian of European descent. Not all Brazilians are brown-skinned, I'm a brown-skinned Brazilian and even I hate that stereotype. We're one of the most diverse countries in the world and brown-skinned Brazilian stereotypes really don't show that.
Not all Brazilians like soccer and carnival either, that's a stereotype we hate in fact. I used to like soccer, though I mostly lost interest, but I never liked carnival outside of having no school in carnival week.
With that said, I'd really like to see a Caucasian Brazilian character in Idolmaster who hates soccer and carnival. I kinda want a black idol in Idolmaster too but I don't want it to be this guy, because again that'd reinforce the stereotype. I want it to be a girl in Cinderella Girls.

Edit: I also want a female idol who is officially lolicon. Judge me. lol
