Yes, it'll be focused on 765.

Came for more info about the game... instead I get an anime announcement...

WTF, NBGI?

... ...

TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH TO ANNOUNCE THIS!

This was what that Xenoglossia crap should have been in the first place. It makes perfect sense, really. Anime with a focus on music have been quite the hit lately (Macross Frontier, K-On!), and even though the 765 Productions have done so many live concerts and released so many new singles every year, you gotta admit they've never really gotten any sort of mainstream attention for it.

This anime is just what they need. Songs that debut in the anime could carry over to iM@S2 as well.

They better not screw it up this time. Or else... Yayoi will suffer!

Iori, Ami and Azusa dont have their RK outfits.
No Touma and Hokuto.
Maybe this could happen in a pre im@s 2 time?
like before RK is born and Azusa cuts her hair. All leading to the start of the game

I feel a pre-im@s 2ish feeling to this.  Like how everyone debuted by themselves, how Ritsuko became a Producer, and how Ryuuguu Komachi came around and all that.  (basically what Salem said)

I hope someone subs it D: The English-speaking iM@S community is pretty small, comparatively (it's like...this forum XD) but I really want to watch it~

I'm sure someone will sub it; I mean people subbed Xenoglossia and the OVA -- so I don't see why not the new anime.

Yes! I mean, no not Yayoi!

When I first saw this thread, I was like "Hmm...? Really?" But then I clicked in and was like, "No way!"

Well, it's not about mecha and actually about the game so that's something and......

.......*headslap* Oh my god. What am I saying!? I've been asking for this all year last year!

Finally, Namco! You're doing the wise thing here! And you better not screw this up! The fate of the franchise rests in this anime's hands! Plus the chance of a western release for other people here...

Off the current flow of the topic, since there's gonna be an actual anime now, wouldn't that mean that they might think of giving the Producer a voiced role now, right? And if so, then that poll back then that involves giving the Producer a voice could've been foreshadowing?

Doesn't someone voice the producer in the Drama CD's

Oh and as for animation my gut tells me its gonna be A-1 Pictures. Since Namco and Sony are both investing in some company called Cellius making an anime with one of Sony's studios would be a great way to strengthen their relationship.

I'm so excited there is going to be an IDOLM@STER anime based off of the actualgames.

I like Xenoglossia too, but...I know I'm going to love this. I wonder how Kuroi, Takagi, and the Producer will be represented? If they use the shadows and the "P" on the Producer's face, I'd laugh. XD


...Also, I wonder if Jupiter will be in this? I'm excited to see all the idols in anime form, but as for them...well, it might make the non-Jupiter lovers angry, so I'm not sure if they'll tread that path. But I hope they will! It'll make it more...dramatic. XD

Also it says "comming soon", what is it with im@s and typos lately?

I figured that they were going to do "background"-ish characters, as well. We have 12 idols (13 if Asapon gets 2 spaces. I doubt it). Then characters like the Producer, Kotori, Takagi, the young-Takagi-replacement-whatever-guy, etc.

-3 more if they actually intend to put Jupiter in the anime. I doubt it XDD Even so, there are quite a few spaces left over...

And, I'm quite disappointed in all these iM@S typos. It seemed like their English was actually English up to iM@S2. Now it's typo-tastic.

(I'm no editor, but I catch typos pretty well...I really hope they fix that Love "Muisic" typo in the game XD)

Take note that iM@S2's storyline takes place in a separate storyline from the rest of the games, including SP (Like every single game after L4U). They may have never been involved w/ 961 in the first place.

Yayoi's siblings? Azusa's mom?

Oh yeah. If I ask nicely, will they put them in?

I know, Jupiter isn't bad. And I look forward to seeing the girls beating on the guys XD But some fans responded pretty negatively when they learned that there would be guys in the series...there's always  extreme people like that. But obviously, they're here to stay and I'm sure they'll become important characters in the future. But again, considering the majority of IM@S fans are guys, of course the girls will always be more focused on. (I'm a female fan myself. ^^)
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime

They probably really cut back on the Jupiter-related stuff because of the crazy negative fan reaction. Even though they had said that Jupiter is staying in the game no matter what, I guess they don't want any more fans going "BAWW MEN IN MY IM@S *break everything*".

Though, using the same screenshot we've -been- seeing on the back of the case is a little disappointing (though, they did the same thing with RK, didn't they...)

But there's a possibility that they will not follow the game's storyline completely and combine both of SP and iM@S 2's timelines together.

Possibly. But I don't wanna people to get their hopes too high (Plus why waste money for the writers to merge two storylines, rather than making one brand new).

As much as that is the likely reaction (lol), I actually like to see them in the anime. I mean, sure they may gain character development later in the end (with their heel face turn), but I wanna see some info about them in the anime, like why did they choose to become idols, background, potential shipping points.....

Post by: Raestloz on January 18, 2011, 12:15:36 PM
Jupiter might not get their share of attention, at least in the first season (if there ever is the second season). This anime could be one of those "introductory" anime, where character backgrounds need to be explained, unlike many other animes where they have light novel and manga featuring the same story backing them up with reputation (like TWGOK or Ore no Imouto)

Explaining 13 people is long enough (if Kotori is to be counted, 14 if Ami and Mami are separated), let alone explaining more than that, and squeezing in filler stories.

Random post:
I'd like to have the producer as a human-shaped black shadow like usual. Moving and talking, but nothing more than a solid shadow, with a letter 'P' on his face, just like portrayed in 4-komas. LoL it will be very amusing, and unique too. Wonder if they ever thought of that?

Heh. Actually, I presented this idea to someone while I was on MSN. My catch line that time was, as I remember, "That way, they can make an anime about iM@S, not give away anything in the game, and advertise it at the same time!"

The P-faced portrayal? Probably, but might deem too hilarious to be taken seriously. The black shadow works too, or maybe an actual figure wearing a suit, with the camera refusing to focus nor capture his head.

Yeah it would probably be hard to explain 13-14 different characters. As much as I like Haruka, I hope the anime won't end up just focusing mainly on her, even if she is the "main heroine." I'd like to see more of other characters, too, because they're all unique. (I hope for some Yukiho, Makoto, Ami & Mami, and Azusa. They're my favorites. Also, some Project Fairy-961 days flashbacks.) ^^

And I sure do hope they have the Producer as his typical black silhouette. It will be funny, but I'm used to him that way. XD
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime
Post by: TweenDoriru on January 19, 2011, 03:43:43 AM
It should play out like an anime where each character "has" an episode (i.e. One episode is about Haruka baking a cake, next is about Azusa getting lost, etc. etc. except with better plots) so everything is evenly spread. Despite me liking Haruka, as well as her being the "main" character, I want everyone to have fair show-time. Even the idols I don't favor as much XD

Like, I wouldn't be surprised if they did something like Haruka showing up in every epsiode (K-ON keeps coming to mind; in the second season some of the epsiodes seemed more geared toward individual characters getting show-time, but everyone showed up nonetheless). The anime seems to have promise, though :D I have faith that they can do it right...

They better hope they can pull this off correctly. This is possibly the fans' gift for the disappointments (per their standards) already seen in iDOLM@STER 2.
And if they can't pull it off...I see more broken things in our future. Quite near actually, I just broke my Haruka revoltech on accident. I shall blame it on Jupiter for the time being.

Post by: Raestloz on January 19, 2011, 04:51:02 AM
I hope they don't spend too much time explaining the characters. After all, an anime that explains new character for the entire season might not has much appeal (13 episodes at most a season, unless they make it twice a week, at which point it's a win either way).

I'd rather have filler episodes (like iM@S have any canon), their work or/and everyday life. Maybe some audition or rival stuff once or twice, but we have the game to cover that.
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime
Post by: ikuto-sama on January 19, 2011, 05:06:55 AM
It should play out like an anime where each character "has" an episode (i.e. One episode is about Haruka baking a cake, next is about Azusa getting lost, etc. etc. except with better plots) so everything is evenly spread. Despite me liking Haruka, as well as her being the "main" character, I want everyone to have fair show-time. Even the idols I don't favor as much XD


Yeah, that sounds like the best idea. Roughly 13-14 episodes if it focuses on a character each episode, maybe? And maybe a few filler (auditions, Jupiter, flashback episodes, etc.), and then the rest following a plot. I'd like to get a full 26-episode season, but even if we get only 13 episodes there better be a second season or I will BREAK MY IM@S MERCHANDISE IN ANGER.

Not really. :3

But I do have faith that they can do a good job with this. Some fans were slightly disappointed with the IDOLM@STER2, with RK not being playable and BAWW MEN IN MY IM@S D':, but I look forward to the anime and no matter what. It may not be perfect because nothing is, but I'll love it because it's IM@S and IM@S = life. <s>and not like Xenoglossia.</s> Though Xenoglossia had its good points, I've always wanted an anime based off of the game.
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime
Post by: Cael K. on January 19, 2011, 05:19:38 AM
I predict one 13-episode season, as unbased as said prediction is.

... But when you get down to it, all we know is the rough sketches. It could be a prequel, or there could be more mecha for all we know.

However, if they had the game's idol aspect + mechas (Xenoglossia on steroids? XD) that would actually make for a pretty kickazz anime.

I have to disagree because in the OVA the animation was pretty choppy.

Anyway, I don't really care how many episodes they have as long as they don't mess it up. Plus I would like all the idols to get a fair amount of TV time. Especially Yukiho


I was thinking about it and there is a chance we might get to see what the producer looks like.

I have Infinite Stratos to cover girls + mecha area for now, so I really prefer less composite casings and more everyday life.

Also, as much as I'd hate to admit it, that sole OVA looks bad. Kinda crushed my hope when I finally watched it.

I hope it's out this year. I really could use some Refresher Orb

I have to say, production values would be pretty low if it didn't...

Don't worry about the animation quality of the above, though. It's an extra bonus for a game, so I'm honestly not expecting jaw-dropping animation. Otherwise, the thing would cost as much as a DVD and a game, and that's not cheap in Japan.

Anyway, when does this thing start airing? You're all coming to way too many conclusions already for something that barely any information has been released about.
1. Watch them use "THE IDOLM@STER" for the theme song
2. Watch Haruka be the main character
3. Watch Producer be some kind of 20-something-year-old-loser-with-no-potential

This is my basic thinking when I hear about "iM@S anime," and see a crappy PV with a few concept arts. Don't get me wrong though, I'll be happy if it isn't what I expect it to be.

I also find it amusing that you guys expect Japanese people to know how to spell English words.

Yeah, I kind of thought so too, that the anime would be a few months from now since all they showed us was sketches, and then maybe later on an actual anime trailer.

That's what I thought originally too. I thought the countdown meant that there would be new information on the anime, including a release date, on January 29th. Because it seems pretty quick for an anime to be announced and a month later it already comes out.

This is awesome there's going to be an anime. I've already been talking to every sub group I know about it and I know at least one good and quick group will be doing it. I was also considering setting up a project with people from other groups to do it, so if anyone's interested in being a part of subbing it hang out on rizon more and let me know. I can also confirm I *will* be intending on hosting every subbed episode for ddl on my site, no way I could miss it. I have the OVA and Xenoglossia already. I wont link as thats spammy unless a mod says its ok, but googleing my nick usually works.

I'm wondering if its going to be more general, not so much on IM@S 2 deal, start early so more story area to cover, initially be 13 episodes to see if it sells well on dvd, if its a hit, then run it for like ever, like Love Hina, YUA or Bleach and just keep on going over the whole franchise for as long as it keeps selling, unfortunately milking it for every penny and meaning it never gets anywhere or ever has a proper end and just one day stops lol. I know thats bad but...I'd be in heaven lol.... And just think of all the 'cosplay' excuses? Infinite costumes, infinite excuses for fan-service, figurines, add-ons, cds..... $$$$ Namco.

That is correct, japanese magazines usually come out 5 or so weeks earlier than the supposed month it represents.

I thought most JP branch stores in the US stopped stocking that "tastless child-porn promoting animu magazine".
That aside, there's no info about the magazine having the anime or a DVD whatsoever.
However it will have the official announcement, various images and a double sided B2 poster though.

Ooh, that cover looks nice! Though Yukiho definitely has a case of Off-Modelness there. Not awesome. Or she held that pose for so long that her left eye drooped down three inches.

By the way, dunno if this was said before, but any information what studio will be animating this?

That is correct, japanese magazines usually come out 5 or so weeks earlier than the supposed month it represents.

J-List will be stocking the March issue I'm sure, they have the reserve subscription at the moment which is cheaper here (http://moe.jlist.com/click/3266?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jbox.com%2FPRODUCT%2FRESERVE51).

Also this months Dengeki G's (http://moe.jlist.com/click/3266?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jbox.com%2FPRODUCT%2FAPB811). They deliver to US, UK and Europe and other places I think from Japan.

Well, I do know J-list has 'em, it's just...me being stubborn and not wanting to pay $10 for the slow untrackable shipping that you can get for $3-$4 everywhere else.

I wouldn't even mind paying $15 for the magazine, but when the shipping is over half of the cost of what you're buying...

I hate to make it sound like $25 is a lot in comparison to everything else iM@S wise, but c'mon! I'm unemployed and broke XD One finds the cheapest methods when in this situation.

I mean, this one is a true official story. My guess is this will explain how Ryuugukomachi got formed

It would be nice to see how RK was formed, and Ritsuko becoming a Producer. Also, some Project Fairy flashbacks.

I used to do that, and that's why now that I have a card I'm always broke OTZ *internet shopping addict*
My card isn't linked to my savings, though. I'm not willing to take money out of that to go shopping (plus it involves going to the bank, anyway)

J-List sold out of Feb's G's Magazine right after I posted that lol. Nm, I went and found another shop 'hobby search' and got it from there, but meh, shipping from Japan is crazy. I paid for SAL as I couldn't bear to pay almost double the cost of the magazine. Not sure if I'll bother getting Megami from them. I wish I was back in Singapore where I could just walk into the shop and buy it :(

i may have mistranslated the titles, but heres the people involved

leaked info:
Director and Character design: Atsushi Nishigori
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=12568
worked on Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking, etc.

Animation Studio: A-1 pictures
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A-1_Pictures
did Kannagi, Working!!, Occult Academy

Series Organizer: Touko Machida
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=75184
worked on Lucky Star, Allison and Lillia

Series Director: Touko Takao
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=38647
worked on pretty much everything Kyoto Animation has ever made

Art Director: Iizuka Haruko and Takata Akira
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=30827
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=8052
worked on ookami-san and railgun
worked on durarara

Producer: Toba Hironori
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=57616
worked on angel beats

Comments have been relatively positive, with high expectations from Atsushi Nishigori and Touko Takao (who was behind many of Kyoto Animation's successful series). I think A-1 is a good choice too, since their quality is fairly nice and consistent. There will probably be more info/pics in the next few days.

That's not a bad idea. Heck, I kinda like the sound of that. We should let the world know who we are and maybe get Namco's attention to prove of a non-Japanese fanbase to milk out of! Though we'll have to change the part where some members RP as known members of the cast.

We should talk about this a bit more before we make it official. We should find people who're willing to translate (since they're kinda the heart of this operation) first.
That's not a bad idea. The RP thing is. But the Pro-iM@S group fansub thing isn't so bad. I'd be willing to help with it, even.

I guess it would be a bit disappointing, but I thought it would be The iDOLM@STER like in the preview.

Then again, that may be a bit too predictable.

Also, I don't think Scotty ever said he disliked the idea of the Project-iM@S fansubs. But he brought up that, by all technicality, doing something like that would be against forum rules iirc.

You know, since fansubs aren't -exactly- legal.

Which is why I brought it up to the admins some time ago. (Though if we do look back, this is the first time he disallowed something like this). Plus, given his attitude, you can mistake it for a flat "I hate it". Again, we did allow posting of iM@S doujinshi, R18 or not.

Yes, it's a go! We just need a translator. Sev started a topic for us already. I confirmed it with Yuna and Kami, and I only need to confirm on where I'll be getting our resources.

I'd actually like that. As much as I like "THE IDOLM@STER," if they use that song for the anime OP it'll end up getting worn out. And it would be cool to see the anime OP up for game use as well. Although we'll all end up broke from more and more DLC

here's an on-topic toss:

Does anyone else actually think that if they make new music for the anime, it shouldn't necessarily go up as DLC? Like...you want to give people a good reason that the anime can stand on its own, not that it's just content-fodder for the game...

Though, if the anime songs / (costumes?) are really good, I'd probably want them as DLC, too even though I have no money and Japanese MSP come in smaller point increments yet cost more *ramble*. But it all depends...maybe at the end of the catalog-life of iM@S2, when they start taking content from things we've already seen?

Well, this is my opinion, but the anime should be just that: A stand-alone anime that doubles as an advertisement for the game it was based of. If anything, that six months of open time before the game starts will be known to us mainly via the anime. They show us a lot of plot, and not spoil us for what's to come in-game. Namco making the anime like this is something I am not sure of, but hopefully, they'll do it like this.

I believe that they'll use some music from the game, but toss in some new ones exclusive to the anime (and the game can have music exclusive to itself). As for songs, that's a possibility. Though I might still see them end up as DLC in the not-so-far future.

Thus not only are we to pay for DLC, but official anime merchandises as well. Namco made a win-win situation for themselves. XD

That is an obvious plot Namco would pull. XD They put new stuff in it and we happen to like it, they have it up for DLC.

I think this is the definition of how NBGI functions. oAo

Your idea for the anime plot is a good one, though I can't see the ending of that one not being a little...weird. After all, the anime would end where you pick up the game, and so that leaves a lot of possibility for an open, unfinished ending.

Where the idols suddenly get a new mystery producer XD and can only wait to see if he'll do a good job training them or not.

Well, that's sorta how people would've looked at .hack//Roots, an anime meant to be a prequel to .hack//GU. What was told there was either 1) not really crucial to GU's plot; or; 2) only given in great detail, the game could've mentioned it in like 10-20 minutes total, hence making it a total filler for the game, but plot point for the anime. And in the end, people would want to play the game just to be 'satisfied', though the anime itself is satisfactory enough.

Oh, and no bonus points for guessing which company publishes the .hack// series.

You have a good point there. I think it'd be a better idea if the anime was able to stand on its own, not just exactly tied to the game. I wouldn't mind waiting till the end of the catalog-life of IM@S2 if there are some anime songs/costumes that I like, because hey, we want people to like the anime for the anime itself, not just like the anime because you get new stuff for the game.

Another running gag in the anime: Kotori's age will sometimes be the topic of discussion of the cast. Whenever one of them tells about her age, we will hear "she's twenty-<insert random noise from random event here>". And the worse part? Only the audience couldn't understand what that person said.

That's what I'm hoping, but the only reason I remain a bit skeptical is because that drawing isn't in Atsushi Nishigori's style. It's this guy's --> 田宮清高 (anyone who's good with name kanji, feel free to decipher), who appears to be the replacement for Annindoufu, who previously illustrated the iM@S stuff.

(and please, anyone who speaks Japanese, feel free to correct me. This is all the conclusion I can come to from looking at that article with my limited knowledge, but that paragraph looks like a profile and stuff for [insert Annindoufu replacement] as a character designer).

But it doesn't look to be a guarantee that Kotori is in the anime; because if it was, Atsushi Nishigori should've drawn it. Plus Juri Takita is preggers. I don't know how much seiyuu stuff she'll be doing right now...

Dictionary lookup comes up with Kiyotaka or Sumitaka as the first name, Tamiya as the family. Thankfully that's all it comes up with, he does not have a Wikipedia Japan page. My vote is with the first, though I couldn't say why.

Really, he's just saying that he drew this in celebration of Im@s turning anime, with associated supporting words (yayz and looking forward to it).

Bottom says he does models, character design, and box art for DS and 2. You more or less got it.

It's still his work on master artist 2 jackets so it's unlikely that he's been replaced.

If it's true though then it's a shame. I have that brilliant idol artbook of his & i really like his art.

I'm not entirely sure on everything he did, I just know him as the illustrator for iM@S (at least up to this point). I know that, in his artbook, there are the designs for the SP DLC (prior to the fan-costume contests), so I had assumed he had done the in-game content for iM@S360 as well.

I don't know if the company ever really says anything about replacing their illustrator. And I know for sure that Mr. Tamiya Kiyotaka emulates Annindoufu's style, because it's the "iM@S" style.

It's really noticeable for the 2010 birthday banners and that Kotori sketch from the anime page that there's a different illustrator. To me, the art on the MA2 covers looks similar, but different than Annindoufu's style (the closest one, to me, is Mami's cover). Nonetheless, whether it's obviously Tamiya Kiyotaka drawing or not, it's still got that same iM@S style to it (the eyes and mouth, noticeably)

Artists' styles change over time, though as a professional illustrator, the ability to consistently draw the same is key, which is why I think that Annindoufu isn't the main illustrator anymore.

If someone is THE illustrator for iM@S, that's is Toshiyuki Kubooka, that is still listed as the copyright holder (along with Namco Bandai) in every official image released even if is not drawn by him. He did the game covers for iM@S, L4Y and SP, and the official portraits are his work. Both Annindoufu and Tamiya emulate Kubooka style.

Annindoufu joined the iM@S project when she did the pictures for an arcade iM@S guidebook called Platinum Album, and since then she became the main illustrator for printed matter, cd covers and the mobile phone contents. None of her works appeared in-game (well, except the wallpapers in the SP games).

Kiyotaka Tamiya began as the character designer for Dearly Stars, doing all the new characters mimicking Kubooka's style. He is doing the birthday banners and is now the main illustrator for iM@S2 (i.e. the game cover and the official portraits).

Wow, I feel bad. 1: I thought Annindoufu was it and 2: I didn't know Annindoufu was a 'she' XD

I guess it would be an easy mistake, though, as Annindoufu was the one who got the iM@S artbook. Thanks for shedding light on the illustrator confusion, Soth! ;D

So THAT's what the kanji characters mean. I always thought it's either the game producer or someone who hatched the original concept

Well, I like Tamiya's style better. Or at least, his DS style. The ones for iM@S 2 seem so different I can't believe it comes from one person

That's too bad, but I guess it's no surprise, Americans are a bit touchy when it comes to bishojo magazines. Because Americans like to file lawsuits, the typical stereotype. I swear, I saw Megami at Kinokuniya once, but that was a few years back, so I guess things have changed.

Yeah that's the guy i'm referring to when i say annindoufu didn't illustrate the game, forgot to write his name.
I'd be bummed if they replace her (i just found out too  ;D) as merchandise illustrator.
I even like her drawings more then the original because annindoufu's girls are usually chubbier & cuter.  :D

My ability to read/speak Japanese is probably that of a 6-year-old, so maybe that won't work out then (has been studying Japanese for 2 years). They should just hire all of us to be their promoters in the West or something and we all get free stuff. In a perfect world... 8D

Though, we'll split the proofreading job, fair? I'll even sacrifice a few months' DLC so they'll give you the Xbox (I already have it and all the 360 games, so I'm covered in that department XD)

edit: by the by, Takane might've looked so foxy-eyed for the same reason Yukiho had that face-sliding issue -- where the artist seemingly drew it in a hurried manner and didn't fix those sorts of details? I like the way Takane looks in this picture, though~

On-topic: Yeah. I guess Takane does look better now. And Makoto looked cuter this time. O: Though still not moe moe to take me down, I blame the fact that her boyishness is still applied. D:

Haruka, Miki, and Hibiki's concept arts are so cute too.
Especially Miki...she's adorable in every single drawing!

Forgive me, but... 1st Vision Chihaya? I thought they're doing iM@S2 characters?

And I can't help but think that I've seen this style of drawing somewhere. Just.... somewhere, but where? And when? And how?

Or is it the pose?

Eh... Right Click > Save Image

And "comming"?
At a glance I can't help but replace "o" with "u", but that's just me being a nasty guy

Well, the artist is Atsushi Nishigori...did art for Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, as well as (...iirc) Panty & Stocking, if you watched it. Probably some other stuff, but I don't know any.

I think the style itself is very nice when faceslide is not present and I was having a very strong "where have I seen this style before" feeling when they first started releasing anime images, as well...

I never watched TTGL but I did watch one music-video-esque thing from it, and I think from that is where my mind made the connection...*stuffs art-geekiness back into closet* I mean, wasn't TTGL pretty popular? You might've made the connection in a similar way...or you watched it...XD

Well, the artist is Atsushi Nishigori
Atsushi Nishigori is the character designer but he isn't drawing all these pictures.
There's more than one artist for the promo art, that's why one of the old pictures looks just like sora no woto, and one has foxy eyes Takane and this one looks actually good.

Oh, really? *no clue how behind-the-scenes-of-animation work*

So, please forgive the crazy questions, but he didn't literally design the characters, because someone in NBGI did that, right?...so is he getting the credit for the animator emulating his style or what? ???

If I find a flat scan of that Ami/Azusa/Mami picture, it will be my new wallpaper (I never liked the cheer outfits much, but that picture is cute XD). Ditto goes for the Iori/Yayoi one...Too bad the Meruhen Maid one was taller than it was wide. XD I love that costume.

Also, Clear Blue, you're very right. Azusa's eyes are red. Seems odd for that kind of slip-up to be made...

blue-eyed, long-hair Azusa is a doppleganger? :<

Given I'm not a professional artist, I know things are a bit different, but...when you're drawing preexisting characters, wouldn't you make extra sure you've got it right? XD Or at very least use a reference?

Especially if your work is being published? XD

I know whenever I draw iM@S characters, I usually try to get two or three different references (just for the sake of color consistency and stuff).

Considering it's happened before (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:MA05FrontCover.JPG), maybe it's some kind of conspiracy to change the blunettes' eye colors. oAo

Hibiki did a backflip over everyone, Takane tried from the other side but ran into everybody.

Either that, or Hibiki's hanging off Azusa's arm (who's also supporting the weight of Ami and Mami).

But uhh... is it just me, or do I see something like another skirt behind Hibiki, and some arm above her head? Oh wait, that's Mami.

A-1's got a pretty good reputation under their belt. And keep in mind they've got Sony and Aniplex to back them up. I can guarantee it'll be much better than Sunrise's attempt back in '07. Here's a list of some of there previous stuff not including some other shows they have planned to come out later this year:

    * Zenmai Zamurai (co-production with No Side; 2006–2010)
    * Ōkiku Furikabutte (2007)
    * Robby & Kerobby (2007)
    * El Cazador de la Bruja (original production: Bee Train; finish animation, 2007)
    * Persona -trinity soul- (2008)

Well, whenever it comes, I just hope we (the fansub) are ready for it. D: Also, if this is a taste of what to look forward to, then I'll have no problems liking it.

I hope that when this comes out for real someone makes a gif out of Iori chopping onions.

Only did it in fear of being punished by Ricchan. D:

That scene from the PV ain't looping animation material, so yeah. Sue me.

EDIT: I can try to aim for a smaller version. BRB

A-1's got a pretty good reputation under their belt. And keep in mind they've got Sony and Aniplex to back them up. I can guarantee it'll be much better than Sunrise's attempt back in '07. Here's a list of some of there previous stuff not including some other shows they have planned to come out later this year:

    * Zenmai Zamurai (co-production with No Side; 2006–2010)
    * Ōkiku Furikabutte (2007)
    * Robby & Kerobby (2007)
    * El Cazador de la Bruja (original production: Bee Train; finish animation, 2007)
    * Persona -trinity soul- (2008)
    * Tetsuwan Birdy: Decode (2008)
    * Kannagi (2008)
    * Kuroshitsuji (2008)
    * Valkyria Chronicles (2009)
    * Fairy Tail (Co-production with Satelight; 2009–present)
    * Working!! (2010)
    * So Ra No Wo To (2010)[6]
    * Ōkiku Furikabutte ~Natsu no Taikai-hen~ (2010)
    * Senkou no Night Raid (2010)[6]
    * Togainu no Chi (2010)
    * Kuroshitsuji II (2010)
    * Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin (2010) [6]
    * Fractale (2011)
    * Ao no Exorcist (2011)
    * Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (2011)

I know that not A-1's productions are horrible (hell, I love their adaption of Kuroshitsuji), but I became pretty distrusting after watching Togainu no Chi. That was a travesty. So yeah, more of a personal issue with the studio for me. I apologize for sounding so negative and jumping to conclusions.

As long as the story makes sense, the animation should be fine.

Kuroshitsuji was well done animation-wise though. The second season had some poorly drawn parts but animation was the absolute smallest part of that season's problems... Same with TnC, the animu would've been awful no matter who did it imho

But TnC and Kuroshitsuji are TOTALLY different genres so comparing them to the slice-of-life/comedy anime I'm expecting is sort of dumb lol

I'm expecting an overall good-looking anime with its moments of QUALITY, given a-1's track record.

Seeing the list, most of us are probably keeping a low expectation for IM@S anime. Granted A-1 has a few notable animes such as Kannagi, So Ra No Wo To, and Working!! (naming a few notable ones).

To me A-1 never really caught my attention with story lines; however, hopefully with IM@S, it'll be something.

Too bad there isn't a way to get an all-forum trip package. Then we can show the world that there are PLENTY of English-speaking iM@S fans! And being able to go would be like a dream come true. :D

I was in Japan around the same time as the beginning of the tour last year...too bad. :P

No surprise Jupiter's CVs aren't there, though. I don't know how they'd be taken, but Jupiter only has two songs anyways. -3-

This. I doubt these concerts have many girls at them and while a CD might sell okay somehow I don't think they'd get a roaring crowd at a concert. It would be a nice thing, but it isn't worth the potential trouble it would cause.

It would be cool to see them, but there aren't as many women you see going to the concert anyways. Although opinion of Jupiter has improved since the game was released (luckily :)), I don't know how much of a roaring crowd they'd get. Although really, it's not the CVs' fault about the Jupiter thing at all, and it would be unfair to treat them unequally as the female CVs. I wouldn't mind seeing them.  :D

unless they are homosexual, there are not many guys who will go crazy over bishounen type characters. iMAS was built on a mostly straight male fanbase (let's be honest here), there is a reason Jupiter isn't too popular within the majority of the fanbase. Not to mention they are your rival so that doesn't help them either.

XD I don't see a problem with guys liking Jupiter at all, really...I just wouldn't expect to see them like "kyaaaa~~! Jupiter!! *insert other fangirl cliches*".

One of the guys I know IRL started showing more interest in iM@S because Jupiter showed up, in fact...

Given that the fanbase can be a little extreme (Yurishii got death threats from fans, didn't she?) I wouldn't risk putting the CVs of Jupiter on stage...not with the Japanese fanbase's potential reaction :s

That's true. I mean, some guys respect Jupiter and think they're decent, but they're not necessarily "fans." There are straight guys that like Jupiter too--but it's not like how a girl would like them because they're cute. Anyone can like characters just for their demeanor or the music. And usually the rival characters are meant to be disliked (at least a little) anyways because they're your rivals after all.

Well, Jupiter is a part of the iM@S series now, whether the fans want it or not. They get birthday acknowledgement, at least...

Jupiter is kind of a step or a few beneath the female idols in popularity, but, of course (and NBGI probably knows this), giving people that don't like Jupiter a bunch of in-your-face Jupiter stuff isn't going to make them change their mind and like them D: I guess worst-case scenario is that they get 876Pro treatment in the future.

That quote is perfect to describe Jupiter. Fangirls love them, some guys hate them (I've yet to meet a girl that deeply dislikes Jupiter), and some guys and girls think they're okay.

876pro...what 876pro? Who's that? ...JK. But yeah, sadly, it's likely Jupiter will get the same treatment as our friends in 876pro a few years later. Unless they decide to make an iM@S: Boys Side. >:D But that likely won't happen either.

876pro...what 876pro? Who's that? ...JK. But yeah, sadly, it's likely Jupiter will get the same treatment as our friends in 876pro a few years later. Unless they decide to make an iM@S: Boys Side. >:D But that likely won't happen either.
They should assign a separate team to work on an iM@S where you're a female producer and you produce male idols (I think that makes it "Girls' Side"). I'm 99.9% positive they'd end up with the fate of the DS crew, but we'd have the game, at least...untranslated OTZ

I was thinking "Boys Side" as in because the idols are guys, but yeah. It would be pretty interesting to see what they'd end up with, and it would be nice because iM@S would gain more female fans. And take over the world.

It's nice that Jupiter will be in the anime, but since Ritsuko is a producer yet Azusa still has long hair, does that mean it's right before Ryuuguu Komachi was formed?

And admittedly, I don't like Touma with shorter hair...he looks...funny. First Yukiho's face, now his hair D:

I'm just thinking a la Tokimeki Memorial (where the Girls' Side version is the one where you date guys...but really, that's the only female-oriented dating sim I can think of XD) but yes, world domination is inevitable. Never doubt the power of a fangirls, NBGI.

I wonder how much of the anime is going to tie into the game...after all, if too much of the game's storyline is in the anime, like how Chihaya has some fatal throat disease for the entire span of the game until supaa purodusaa rabu cures her after 55 weeks, I think it might be a bit of a hassle XD

I bet if Ricchan/Iori/Ami/Azusa ≠ Ryuuguu Komachi in the anime, it's just because the animators didn't want to draw the Palace of Dragon outfits.

I think the most I want to know about the anime at this point is why Azusa's hair is long again...

I love this, it makes me think of Mitch Hedberg; "They either loved us or they hated us...or they thought we were okay."

Well, Jupiter is a part of the iM@S series now, whether the fans want it or not. They get birthday acknowledgement, at least...

Jupiter is kind of a step or a few beneath the female idols in popularity, but, of course (and NBGI probably knows this), giving people that don't like Jupiter a bunch of in-your-face Jupiter stuff isn't going to make them change their mind and like them D: I guess worst-case scenario is that they get 876Pro treatment in the future.
It's a good quote.

I understand...It's just that they were used to having Jupiter in their iM@S and I thought "Hey! People stopped hating them now, why not put in the anime and let's see if they accept them?" But....Noooo...Jupiter raeg starts yet again... *sigh*

That quote is perfect to describe Jupiter. Fangirls love them, some guys hate them (I've yet to meet a girl that deeply dislikes Jupiter), and some guys and girls think they're okay.

Why are you calling it "Boy's side"? If it's "Boy's side", then it's yaoi.

They should assign a separate team to work on an iM@S where you're a female producer and you produce male idols (I think that makes it "Girls' Side"). I'm 99.9% positive they'd end up with the fate of the DS crew, but we'd have the game, at least...untranslated OTZ
Yes, PSP ver. of Jupiter... (I want to produce them...so badly!)

If Jupiter was produce-able in an iM@S game in which you were a female producer, then the yaoi could be avoided. Although hey, a Y@OIM@S could be a pot of gold for NBGI. XD

e game until supaa purodusaa rabu cures her after 55 weeks[/spoiler], I think it might be a bit of a hassle XD

The Palace of the Dragon outfits would look so cute in the anime though! :( But since the game has so many different endings for all of the characters, they might not have it following too closely to the game. Unless they did something like have a special episode from each character's perspective, but that would take awhile.

Maybe the animators just preferred long-haired Azusa? And a lot of fans miss Azusa's long hair too. I do, although I think her short hair is also cute. :3

I think it was stated earlier that the anime would cover events up to the beginning of the game? This could be fan speculation, but I'm certain Ishihara was asked this in an interview. Check old magazine articles, I'm sure one was posted here...

... maybe with a partial translation by me, I seem to remember doing something like that. That means it's probably in the main Im@s2 thread, which is Godzilla large.

If it covers events up to the beginning of the game, I guess it makes sense that Azusa still has long hair. As to why she cut it...I hope we get to learn that in the anime as well.

The idea of an American release doesn't really appeal to me either. I don't want an iM@S dub, and I think even Bamco has said that they couldn't find quality-enough American CVs to undertake such a huge project. And just the idea of an iM@S dub...I'm so attached to the Japanese CVs, so the only way I'd accept an American release is if Bamco just subbed it and kept everything else. Let alone the genre isn't that popular (and even looked down upon) in the U.S. :P

Maybe the MA2 albums were just released since iM@S 2 was released, and considering Yukiho being voiced by Azumin and Mami getting her own album, so they're more iM@S2-verse oriented. I think Smile Taiso would make an adorable anime OP, though...especially if it happened to be a Yayoi-centered anime. :D

Huh.  This is the first I have read on it, and I am excited about it too.  From what I gather, the genre is purely music.  Since I've never watched any anime with said genre, I can't even imagine how the narrative is going to work out, which is one of the elements that hold my interest.

Subjectively, I expect the illustrations will look better than what was displayed by The Idolmaster spin-off, since this is full-fledged (...This is not always the case).  Not that those illustrations are not good, per se.

Anyways, I am definitely looking forward to watching the anime.

So it is in July huh?

For those of us in America, it'll probably be around the morning or afternoon. But I'm hoping a fansub group can translate the first episode really fast.

If there's one thing about iM@S I don't like, it's that the wait for anything feels like forever XD Why can't they give us the title -AND- the song? XD

Too bad it says "REDAY!!" instead of "READY!!"? Please re-hire your English speaker, NBGI.

Maybe it's supposed to be like that like...re-day. JK.
It's a shame...Seems like Japanese people never seem to check their English when it comes to this type of thing. I saw recently where there was a website with a theme from a game and they spelled information wrong even though on the game's offical website information was spelled right there!

 Honestly, it kind of surprises me that she doesn't have a fang by default. (For reasons why, check: Tsuruya and Misao, who both are similar to her character type. Just without Hibiki's extensive list of pets. Which should make her more likely to have one.)

 Also, at first I thought the shirts were just flying up because they were jumping, but looking at it again... They are a lot smaller. Maybe it was just artistic licence? Author appeal? Just because? *Shrug*

Quote from: Neko-P
Author appeal?

Though they do appear slightly too amorous for author appeal, and something of that magnitude wouldn't be put forward otherwise, in my opinion.  Which can lead one to conjecture a vogue voyeurism.  With this kind of denoted subliminal connotation comes a sense of identification, and then you have a birthed fan identity.  It is a perfect marketing strategy that plays on unconscious desires.

I still think it's crooked teeth.  :D After all, Japanese men some how find that attractive in real idols.

With the shirts, I think it is a good translation from the 3D version to the 2D version. It's an innocent kind of sex appeal!

I think I'd rather see the same 3 second clips over 3 PVs like some other anime rather than see the expression sheets, random art and static screenshots (though I'm not going to complain about all the art...)

I get the suspicion there's going to be a few massive cases of quality, what with Yukiho's face melting off and one of Kotori's expressions having an eye melting off the side of her face.

I don't care how long it'll be, as long as it doesn't just feel like they're milking it for all its worth by the end~

There's nothing wrong with a short anime if the quality is good. Kinda better to have people thinking "ohh, that was great. I wish there was more" than "oh God please make it stop, no more, no more!!"

over. Unless they have a sequel it doesn't feel right.

I don't think the promotional art has been bad-looking outside of the infamous fox-face Takane (http://oreno.imouto.org/post/show/174438/hagiwara_yukiho-shijou_takane-takatsuki_yayoi-the_). As for the TV show, I'm expecting it to be a good-looking show; the animation staff they've assembled is pretty solid and director Nishigori has his friends/connections in the business. I'm more worried about what the show is going to be about and if the writers are going to be able to properly manage 13 main characters without neglecting anyone.

I can't wait for all the melting face quality shots, but that's part of the fun of watching anime these days~

I'm tellin' ya, man. Takuan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takuan).

Slap two of those on your eyebrows, you'll never melt again.

I'm more worried about what the show is going to be about and if the writers are going to be able to properly manage 13 main characters without neglecting anyone.

For some reason, I'm half expecting Azumanga-style 5/10 minute shorts, as if it were made from some 4-koma or something. But that's just me. Maybe they can string together in some loosely related over-arching way.

I have some money on this as well. Maybe I'm still fresh from the aftereffects of Lucky Star and K-On!, but seeing as that sells well in animation, Namco could take that route.

On another side of the table, I bet that it could actually have a stable plot, with various character focus from time to time, all leading up to the start of the game. I dunno, maybe part of me expects the same thing with Roots (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.hack//Roots) here.

I wouldn't mind if it were one of those animes that takes it a bit slow and are slice-of-life, like K-ON! or Lucky Star. I enjoyed them because of their relaxed aspect. Maybe it will follow just the idols' daily lives? Or it could focus on a certain character each episode.

I wanted to see a black silhouette-P but if that won't happen, at least Ritsuko is there. XD

I haven't seen anything wrong with the promo art besides fox-face Takane, and then once in awhile Yukiho's face looks like it's melting, but everything I'm sure will look fine once it's animated. Let's keep positive. :)

Well, they'd be pronounced the same, at least XD I think it's odd that they wouldn't romanize it the 'official' way, though...but then again, they couldn't keep Azusa's eyecolor straight either /nitpick I actually like that illustration at the top of the scan a lot.

Haven't we run into some weird "engrish" before with the anime team? Maybe they're using the animation people instead of the actual game where it is romanized the 'official' way.

Come to think of it, I wonder if there will be trios or groups in the anime. It isn't possible to divide them equally
unless Ritsuko becomes an idol.

I think there have been considerably worse pictures. I honestly don't think this is bad at all XD
It's like seeing Ai and long-haired Eri instead of Haruka and Chihaya
Then again, I don't see Ai and Eri, either...I see Haruka and Chihaya XD Ai and Haruka do look similar at first glance, but Haruka's bangs are totally different...and her hair flips outward instead of inward like Ai's does.

I know Harurun's hair is going all over the place in this picture, but I don't think I've ever seen Ai's go out like that...at all... XD

I don't get an Eri vibe from Chihaya at all. Then again, I'm no Eri expert. Nor a Chihaya expert.

It's true, Miki's eyes look a bit derpy during Makoto's segment. XD
I don't think they ever announced that P would be in the anime at all, so it looks like it'll be Ritsuko's role this time.

I don't know if this has been discussed before, but has it occurred to anyone that the Idolm@ster anime actually has a decent chance at having an English release of some kind? I can understand releasing a game like Idolm@ster in America would be far-fetched, but an anime of it isn't so crazy. There have been animes with crazier concepts and premises than Idolm@ster released in English (Hetalia and FLCL come to mind). Heck, even K-ON!, another musical-ish anime, is being localized.

So what do you guys think? Considering most anime are fair game for localization these days (at least from what I've observed), do you think the Idolm@ster anime, at the very least, will be released in English?

Before anyone brings it up, I know English dubbing and linguistic liberties are an issue to some (the quality of voices, quality of acting, how the songs are handled, translation, etc.), but that's not what I'm asking here.

I totally agree. The anime getting localized isn't such a big jump like the game getting localized so theres always a chance of it to be dubbed. And who knows, if it gets popular here, it could open the path for a bunch of other stuf. Please god, please.

Post by: Rihsa on July 05, 2011, 06:24:15 PM
^ Ha ha, yeah, that was another thought I pondered. XD If the Idolm@ster anime is localized/released in America, that definitely increases the chances for the games to be released. Is the increased chance dramatic? Ehhh, probably not, but it's much much much better than before at least!

Now I'm really getting ahead of myself here, but, hypothetically, if they were to release an Idolm@ster game, I imagine it'd be IM@S 2 with the 2 dropped from the name, as it'd be most relevant to the anime and it's the most recent and polished Idolm@ster game. It wouldn't be too bad if that were the case, right? All the Idolm@ster games are disconnected story wise, correct? And one Idolm@ster game would be better than none (on top of that, IM@S 2 isn't a bad choice out of all the games, imo).

I only want subs. I don't want to hear horrible voice acting or crap translations coming from their mouths. >.<

To be honest though, the translation is crap. I mean the subs allow you to make sense of it...but they don't even give you footnotes for super confusing parts like puns and stuff so unless you know Japanese (which I only know a little bit which helps) most of the funny parts go over your head.

Hopefully if this happens to idolm@ster the translators are good. I want to know exactly what they're saying!

I love dubs.

As long as the dubbing never gets as bad Chaos Wars or old school dubbing, then I'm fine. Or whatever company does the dubbing for Kaleido Star.

The dubs for the Tales series, Catherine, Persona, Code Geass, etc. etc. Basically any recenty dub for an anime game or anime I LOVE.

Whatever the case, Namco's games released in English usually have fine dubs to me. I dunno about translations since I don't speak Japanese, nor do I read fansubs.

^ This. This right here.

Not all dubs are bad. Maybe they'll get GOOD voice actresses for the characters. (Final Fantasy 10 anyone?) Why not give them a chance rather than assume it's going to be bad?

And, maybe they'll let you change the option to Japanese if you don't want to hear the English Dub.

To be honest, I want to hear a dub of this game.

But I don't want to hear...the songs dubbed.
For example, Haruhi Suzumiya is a great dub. The translators put some thought into it. But the concert scene in Live Alive sounded awful to me....bad song translations, bad singing. If they keep the songs it would be okay.

K-ON's dubbed songs sounded fine (from what I heard from the K-ON panel with Sheh and Vee). And yeah, I do have to admit Wendee Lee's God Knows was iffy. Her Lost My Music was fine though. :P And that's only one example. I'm sure good singers for the songs can be found (Cristina Vee and Laura Bailey come to mind~). Who knows how many liberties they'll take with the songs though. :/ Even I'm slightly worried about that. Either way, nothing's happened yet though so. XD

My (brief) personal experience with translation is that it involves rewriting a scene as if the characters were native speakers in whatever language you're translating to... and even then it's colored by your own interpretation of the characters and what they would say.

Then, for a dub, you've got mouth motions to match, which kinda aren't made for your language... but they're still a bit transferable and you can make do...

And finally you've got a song, the lyrics specifically made for one language and thus the entire song built around that (or vice versa) or in concert with that (meaning one matches line-for-line with the other). If the song were made in English to start with, would it have even kept the same melody? Probably not. If the melody changed, would the harmony change to match? Probably so.

Thus do I believe that songs can't really be translated well in a way that makes them singable. Really, you'd have to make the song again, or at least modify it, but let's not even get into that...

I disagree. I know I'm just a random chick doing fandubs on the internet, but a way around that is simply by taking the translation and rewriting/adapting it to the syllables and melody to the song.

For example, in the song HELLO!! the first lyric is: "Ima Mezashiteku watashi dake no SUTOORII." This translates to "Today we aim for our very own Story!" and the Japanese line has 15 syllables total (despite how "story" is written as SUTOORII, in the song they pronounce correctly with just two syllables). In my fandub lyrics, I rewrote it as "Today We will aim to make what we can call our own Story!" The fandub line is basically true to the original meaning and it's singable because it has the same number of syllables.

Matching the mouth flaps is certainly another issue. It's only REALLY a problem if the mouth flaps were already tailored to the words being sung. In the game the songs were lip synced to the Japanese words, but that can be fixed if the developers or whatever bother to change the mouthing. As for the anime, I dunno if they'll lip sync the animation for the songs or simply have their mouths move up in down in typical anime speaking fashion. If that's the case, as long as the "syllable" rule is followed, it shouldn't be a problem. This is why God Knows English lyrics in Haruhi may have had issues, because they had to account for the lip sync (which followed the Japanese words).

And wow, those ads are nifty. Region specific? Very unique ha ha.

Come to think of it, can anyone confirm if either Atsushi Nishigori, Youzou Sakagami, or Akihiro Ishihara have ever made it to Otakon? The latter two I doubt, but...

... For that matter, Toshiyuki Kubooka, but I don't think that's very applicable here...

I disagree. I know I'm just a random chick doing fandubs on the internet, but a way around that is simply by taking the translation and rewriting/adapting it to the syllables and melody to the song.

But even then, it's an up-hill battle I think, but this might come for the fact that I've never heard a singable translation that wasn't awkward to me, or the fact that I'm not good at it myself. Syllables ain't even the most of it, there's song flow to consider as well.

The deck's stacked against you, really... though maybe I was exaggerating a bit when I said it's never possible... just that it's such a hard task, and that I've never really seen it pulled off well.
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime
Post by: Rihsa on July 07, 2011, 07:03:03 AM
A singable translation isn't technically possible. You have to adapt the translation to the song if you want to preserve its exact melody and syllables. You can't have a song adapted into another language AND have lyrics that are an exact word for word translation.

And care to elaborate on what you mean by song flow? As long as the lyrics fit the syllables or progression of notes in the song, I always felt songs written with that goal in mind flowed well. The only thing that ruined that was awkward wording or clumsy placement of specific words/lyrics in my experiences.

I agree. Not all anime dubs are bad (OHSHC and Baccano! have pretty good English dubs), but then it'll mean they also have to translate whatever songs end up appearing in the series, and they always end up sounding awkward and the lip synch is off. Also, even with some of the good female English CVs out there, such as Cristina Vee and Wendee Lee; it gets a bit redundant when you hear their voices in a lot of animes.

iM@S has more of a shot making it into the U.S. as an anime than a game, but I'd rather just get a subbed release in the U.S.

The only thing that ruined that was awkward wording or clumsy placement of specific words/lyrics in my experiences.

I think I'm talking about what you're talking about, but let me clarify. Sometimes, you can get the syllable count right, and you can stop your English phrases when they stop... but then, well I noticed a few things at least.

(Disclaimer: Not a literal translation. I think and I think you think it's best not to even attempt one.)

(Tonari ni...)
待ち続けたあの場所に君は -> And in this same old place, I watch and wait and cry for you

At "old place," I feel the song stops a bit in English (at "old"), where it doesn't in Japanese. There's a small hiccup, and given how I think the song flows, my voice doesn't want there to be one there.

And even when I was staring at a rough draft of this translation, I thought about singing it. Even if they were well enough made that I didn't get the "What am I singing?!? This doesn't even make sense!" feeling, I think at one point I realized that the emotion that I thought should be in the song... I, personally, could not deliver with the English lyrics I was thinking of. To adapt a famous quote, it was like, "Cael, you can write this stuff down, but you can't sing it!"

Which means, of course, I had to find other lyrics... and what I think up of sometimes makes me question if I'm really doing this right.

Magic TV show, make my fan thread grooooooooow!!!!

There's a stream of this, though? News to me.

Personally, I thought that lyric you made was good. It's singable with no issues in my opinion. It seems your issues with English adaptations are very subtle and something I can't relate to or understand that well. I suppose that's that then, but I really saw nothing wrong with that line adaptation you made! (:

Honestly that was one of the lines I was more happy with, but I thought it would illustrate what I meant. I think it's otherwise fine (I think), and I'm not embarrassed to sing it, it's just I think it could be stand to be more fluid there. Some parts of that translation, though... I know why I did what I did, but again, things still bug me. Thanks for the compliment, though.

So, once again, I think I'll ask... Atsushi Nishigori. Has he gone to Otakon like, ever?

OT: Kurisu's "Kyouki no Mad Scientist" impression in this week's episode of Steins;Gate was incredible.

@ikuto-sama: according to a leak, Jupiter won't be featured in the anime. Instead we get a lil' bit of 876.

That's too bad. Although it'll be nice to see 876pro again, since they didn't make it into iM@S 2.


Edit: If there's no Jupiter...would that mean no Ryuuguu Komachi?


I guess not, also considering that Ritsuko's 765's P. Which means no Azusa-cutting-her-hair scene? *puts away tissues*

Ufufu,  I guess they're going with the Producer from the relations manga huh? I wonder if I can pinpoint the voice actor without looking at the ANN page. Though that's assuming a voice actor I've heard before. I wonder why it started out as just text first, before adding the voice in? Ah well, looking forward to next week.

Alright, I was like...-officially- the last person to watch the first episode (everywhere people were linking me gave my computer viruses. Whyyyy) and I eventually just gave in and watched it raw.

Seeing the idols in anime form was nice, and I'm kinda sad Producer isn't a silhouette, but I vastly prefer megane-Producer to invisible-Producer-whose-only-lines-are-text-on-the-screen-for-almost-the-entire-episode :>

I also like how Yukiho and Makoto are together for most of the episode XD I look forward to the next episode if my computer does indeed let me watch it (泣) orz

This has to be the best thing I've seen all day. I loved Tower Records! =D

Anyway, I saw the first episode just now and so far, I'm liking it. the animation seems a bit choppy to me, but that's just my opinion.

One thing that really made me laugh was actually during the Ritsuko interview when Ami waved at the cameraman. I was watching with a friend and as I joke I waved back. We both broke out laughing when she seems to react with the grin she gave! XD

I actually don't really care for the Producer...he's just like the one in the relations manga pretty much. I guess because you can't really relate to him since you can see him. It would be funny to see a black blob that only spoke the whole show. XD

Yeah, visible producer is kinda bland but they had to do it I suppose to avoid making the anime like a Japanese Dora the Explorer.  Although I hope on the last episode of the anime, it ends with Ritsuko breaking the 4th wall and saying something like "You can be our next producer."  Just like episode one, it would imply that throughout the series you've actually been behind the camera getting ready to join 765pro.  The anime could actually then be a prelude to the second game, showing what went on before you joined.  I'd be cool with that idea, and it seems obvious, but who knows what direction the anime will go.

8/10, release date's been known for months now. CD has 3 songs( ready!!, otona no hajimari and omoide no hajimari) and the LE version has a video of the opening, textless supposedly.

And from the looks of the opening, long-haired Azusa is here to stay perhaps? Awesome either way.
I'm pretty sure they left her hair like that so they could give Azusa an ep where she'll feel down for some reason, her friends cheer her up and eventually end up cutting her hair.

If you girls wanna keep 'ranting' about how much you don't like Jupiter. Then, so be it. But, I'll tell you this...

They're your (or actually 765Pro's) rivals, you can't just kicked them off the anime. Because without them, where's the competition in the whole anime? Besides, Jupiter is part of iM@S now and you can't doing anything about it.

Wow. That was unnecessary.

All they said was they're not fans of Jupiter. What's wrong with that? Not once did they say that they wanted off the anime, nor did they rant. In fact, one of them said that they could live with it.

Hibiki is programmed with a mechanism and algorithm that makes her act and move in a precise way in response to stimuli when Hamuzou isn't in control. It must be done to keep up the act that Hamuzou is but a mere pet and hamster.

Post by: KodeShikou on July 18, 2011, 12:44:36 AM
I think it's another symptom of a modern society that just can't wait at all for instant gratification. If the show doesn't have you hooked immediately, why then it just might not be worth watching.

...or so some people probably think. People are just spoiled and are waiting for the next big epic thing, and when it doesn't come along, they get disappointed, hence lists like that pop up. Not every show is going to show up like a Gurren Lagann, that will dote you along for the first ten or so minutes, then blow your face off with intensity and awesomeness, and continue to do so more or less unabated until the series' end. Sometimes, a good story just takes some time to develop, and some patience to experience and be appreciated for what it is.

...and then, here I am ranting on like a madman about this, so I guess this just means I'm either someone who can appreciate a good story, or just likes reading the words of my own typing a bit more than I should. *2 cents deposited*

Every time someone posts a link to sankaku I'm reminded of why I hate it so much.

ON TOPIC: My best friend watched idolmaster, knowing nothing about it [I didn't even know she watched it until she texted me about it], and totally loved it. She says she wants to cosplay as Takane now.

Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime

Sankaku's always just a hot bubbling pot of rage. Ingredients: Rabid fangirls, fappers, and weeaboos, with the occasional rational people. That's why I try to avoid going on there. But seriously, judging an anime on its first two episodes isn't necessarily fair. It's one thing if they list it after the series is finished, but it just came out 2 weeks ago. People nowadays are just impatient and only pay attention to whatever series that comes out as the "Next Big Thing." There have been a few series that their first few episodes didn't impress me or went by slow, but I gave them a chance and they became some of my favorite anime (K-ON! and FLCL, I'm looking at you.) Of course, not everyone is going to love iM@S, and for those who aren't familiar with the series, the anime may appear cheesy, confusing, boring, or a combination of those. Or they may love it. But I like what I like, and that's all I'm going to say on that topic.

Thankfully, I missed the earlier Sankaku-Jupiter-rage (the benefits of being out of town with no Internet!) As for that, Sankaku blows everything out of proportion. XD

I don't think the anime is bad but I think people thought it was going to be some moeblob anime like K-ON.

I look forward to listening to "Kosmos, Cosmos" or "First Stage" on tomorrow's anime.

Hey! What do ya' know? It's a live preview of the next episode starring Makoto's and Yukiho's seiyuus!

Seeing as it is Yukiho's episode i'm pretty excited for the next episode. I get the feeling that her ending might be something like Kosmos Cosmos. Even though I prefered her old VA version of it. Azumi's version is alright as well.

If you're worried about her, then maybe I should worry about Hokuto then.

Now, now. Azusa fanboys aren't going to like this.

Besides, I'm starting to become fond of her. Also, her birthday just passed a few days ago.

Same goes to Hokuto. (Just because someone is in the 20's, doesn't mean the person is considered 'old'.)

Even 30 is not old. Old is like gray hair, wrinkles, or in a nursing home. That's when you're old.

01 - xxx
preview color - haruka
preview voice - azusa

02 - iori
preview color - azusa
preview voice - yayoi

03 - yukiho
preview color - yayoi
preview voice - takane

04 - chihaya
preview color - takane
preview voice - chihaya

Basically, the only thing I can figure out is that the color of the kanji "next" in the preview section of the episode is always the color of the girl who voiced the PREVIOUS episode's preview. How random is that?

Anyways...

I loved this 4th episode! (Even though that puppet's voice...UGH)
I never really cared about Chihaya before, and I saw her as the "serious" character, but I didn't know she was so...Lonely?
It made me like her, a little bit, because there's just something touching about her, that I never noticed before. Yep, I think she's gonna be the 2nd Idol I will produce, right after Miki. (Sorry, Yukiho...)
And that ending! ;A;

Oh and, dear Takane.
Stealing is bad...But don't change.

Looking forward to the next episode!
(I wanted to comment on the previous post, but...To tell the truth, I didn't really understand anything...at all xD)

I like how the animators know the yuri couplings down.
YukihoxMakoto
and in episode 4 they really showed off HarukaxChihaya.

But what the heck? I thought each episode was gonna seal that character's emotional deal. How many eps is Chihaya gonna get? I like Chihaya, but still.
Haruka isn't gonna get an ep is she? Unless the whole episode is the producer yelling at her for faking clumsiness and falling down all the time

Regardless of what the director said about making IM@S an ensemble cast anime, Haruka, Miki and Chihaya are the main, MAIN characters.

A full Azumin version of ALRIGHT*...I'm excited to hear it and at the same time, I don't want to XD I really love Yurishii's version of that song. I thought they'd never fully re-record it since that was her last CD solo.

I haven't watched episode 4 onward, but I love the title of that song XD KamiSummer.

If we forget about 72-chan (flat chested, but not a loli), Miki, Takane, Azusa, Haru~run (who I think has a pretty fair bust size for her age), Ritsuko, Kotori and the men....I suppose....
But I'm pretty sure the game is just for men who love one of the traditional moe stereotypes and these types of strategy/simulation/VN type game.


I like how in the latest ep of the anime...I nearly forgot I was watching idolm@ster there for a second. Nothing flashy or idolish and Producer~san didn't show up til later.

Make that 'Jupiter fangirls' and well, there's not a lot of Jupiter fans here (commonly, 3)

The reason why we, Jupiter fangirls are here, is because this place barely hates/doesn't care about Jupiter at all. Therefore, we are free to like Jupiter. (You know, this isn't really 'lolicon'. Only a few are but not all of them and there are only 3 idols with flat chests. (Unless you count P, Takagi and Kuroi.) (Possibly Chihaya, but I wouldn't blame her.)

They're just the most vocal, that's all...

(the fans)
In short, Jupiter is here to impress the fangirls.

EDIT: I think I know what iLoveLolis is referring to...just give me a moment...(It's not the best quality.)

This article says here is a poll about which idol is their favorite, apparently Yayoi and Makoto are in the head lead while the Futami's don't get much attention. :(

That's interesting, I thought the Futamis were more popular. But Yayoi and Makoto are my top two favorite idols, so can't complain...

Yayoi and Makoto?

Do men not watch the anime? ... *shot*

I thought Miki, Azusa, or Haruka would be way more popular. On Danny Choo's poll on his personal blog, Miki was everyone's favorite character.

I saw that a while ago actually. Was kind of sad that ami/Mami were so low until I realized something.

I think the problem with Ami/Mami is that they're split in the poll, so you'd have to pick one of them to vote for as your favorite, not both. Thus their combined fans which could outnumber the others are split between the two.

Looks like, just like Kugimiya teased in the live preview, the episode will feature a lot of Iori/Makoto banter, with them being forced to team-up in the sports event. I really like how Iori and Makoto tease each other, so I'm specially looking forward to that.

That's cute, I like this floral outfit!
Thing is...Something looks wrong about Yayoi's face.
It looks like she has the face of a little boy more than a little girl, but that might just be me.
I think it's in the eyebrows...Or the lenght of her front hair.

The Bluray/DVD comes with a vocal CD with a new song, and jazz arrangements of Tonari ni, Relations, and Kimi wa Melody. I'm really excited for this, since these are three of my favorite idols and I love jazz <3

Dengeki G's also has an Idolm@ster feature; details for the story in the second cour have been revealed:

-The first cour was very episodic, but the second cour will have a well-defined on-going story clearly progressing with every episode.
-Starting episode 14, 961 Pro, along with other rival production companies, will play a much bigger part in the story.
-The second half will be more focused on the difficulties the girls will encounter as their popularity grows; "becoming a top idol means sacrifices". The conversation Haruka, Chihaya, Makoto and Iori had in episode 5 is very important to the development of the story.

So my friend said that there was these 2 guys who broke away from Gainax to create their own studio and they're producing this week's ep of idolm@ster.

So it is going to get dark and edgy afterall?

From the looks of it Yukiho along with Hibiki will be playing some sort of role in Takane's episode considering that VA being in live previews is usually an indication that a certain idol will be playing some role in the episode. It would be nice to have my favorite pairing and top 2 idols Yukiho and Takane in display! XD

I find it a bit interesting that this time for RK's outfits, they didn't do much variation between them, while with the Palace of the Dragon outfits, each one was unique. I kind of wish they had also done that this time around.

The crying and tears are drawn in such an interesting way in this anime...

is it a symbol/illusion to the fact that our idols can now cry actual tears in idolm@ster 2?
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime
Post by: Crisu on December 13, 2011, 06:54:25 PM
The tears don't seem too uncommon to me.  ^^;  Episode 20's director was the same guy who did some of the more emotional CLANNAD episodes, and everyone in that show cried gobs of tears that are strangely thick, lol.  I'm not sure who directed ep23, but the tears in that one seemed a bit more natural looking -- though still kind of heavy.

But I would expect anime tears to be heavy anyway, since if their eyes are that huge, their tearducts should be just as big to accomodate.  :P  Plus it makes us, the viewers, a lot sadder if there are more and more visible tears.  :3

Ep 24's director is the same as Ep 20, so I am expecting the same amount of waterworks as Chihaya had.

Something I do find rather "pretty" is how Haruka's face looks in the 24 preview.  The skin around the corners of her eyes are red, and her expression in general tells you she's been crying for a very long time and has finally run out of tears.  Other people have noted, too, that the quality in ep23 was better than recent episodes, so I hope 24 continues this trend.  I'd say they're starting to use up the remaining budget they've been saving up.  :x  Or the staff themselves feel pumped about doing these last few episodes because of the story.

READY!! is a pretty easy song, relatively speaking. Kiramekirari is a difficult song (constant switching between blue and red notes; hard to do without lots of practice with those types of patterns) that I'll probably never 100% for a long time. I'm also thinking of doing a video for The world is all one!! later.

Somebody would probably know it down to the model number, but looking at it reminds me of those Nokia phones from circa 2003.  They're shaped like handsets of cordless phones and still have a nub of an antenna sticking out the top.  And look at those buttons, lol.

I think the flip-phone style is very popular in Japan, still, while most of America has gone onto smartphones with large screens (and no flipping feature) like Iori's.

Yeah, this image is missing Haruka's phone, but hers is a flip model like most of the other girls'.  In ep24 she had like 900-some mails stored on her phone, lol.  Very social, she is.

I am not sure how old her phone is, I think her phone's like the Nokia cellphones in the 90's that is popular in my home country (ever since I was 14 or 15 I had this cellphone). And I wish I want that smartphone like Iori's!

I'd call between 10~13 years. My second phone was a cheap replacement and looked very similar to her's. It was mildly outdated at the time and I was probably between 10 and 13 years old, I'm 20 now.

She probably either got it young and kept it or got it cheap second hand because she needed it for work or something. More likely the latter?

(Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.  ^^;)

Super loose translation: "Let's work together to give everyone an amazing concert!"

More literal: "Together with everyone, I believe I want to produce a wonderful stage."

Super literal: "Precious everyone together, a wonderful stage I want to create and give, I think."

大切なみんなさんと一緒に、素敵なステージを作りあがたいと思います。
taisetsu na minna-san to issho ni, suteki na stage wo tsukuri agatai to omoimasu

This is me getting too serious about a line that's rather simple.  :P  I'm still a super novice translator, and there really are a lot of small nitpicky things that can be lost in translation between Japanese and English.  In English something could sound very presumptuous or self-centered when I think that is not the case at all in Japanese.

Anyway, it's a positive message from Broducer wishing that everyone work together to have a wonderful concert.

Two of my favorite in-game costume colors! I feel an OVA announcement coming.
I would like to see an anim@s S2. Perhaps with the return of 876pro to the spotlight, they might have more appearances in the next season. Or Shinkan Shoujo returns as much bigger rivals.

As for a Xenoglossia S2...no thanks. Not that I hate it. I would have liked Xenoglossia a lot more if they didn't change the VAs, then it would have been a cool AU-story.

Lol, from the thumbnail Yukiho looked like Yui from K-On there for a moment. Actually Im getting K-On vibes from the Pic. Though I'd pick Im@s over K-ON anyday  ;)

Though I have to admit the anime Did pretty much make me put Haruka as one of my favorite Idols.

Im really skeptical about a season 2 Im@s but Imo how bout a spin-off instead focusing on the 876 idols whiles in the same timeline as with the original anime? :P Neeedd moar Ryooo :33

From what I can see:
-Haruka, Yukiho, and Chihaya are doing some karaoke. Chihaya looks depressed for some reason (or maybe's she's thinking really hard about which song to sing).
-Yayoi and Iori sleeping in the same bed? Well...
-Hibiki on a boat, Takane eating more ramen, looks like some more Namassuka stuff is coming?

I'm guessing this is sometime after the final episode.

I've commented on this elsewhere- it is strange to see idols doing karaoke.  Normally, the point of putting in a karaoke scene is to watch the characters screw up and make the viewer guess as to who can sing and who can't.  Or to show people singing against character type- I could dig that, actually.  Hell, maybe we'll get a new song out of it.

Iori is smiling... does that mean she took the initiative?

edit: that brief shot of Haruka confused me for a bit... for a moment I thought she flipped into Dark Haruka mode.

And Iori x Yayoi fans will freak out for this scene.

Post by: Neko-P on May 02, 2012, 04:44:49 AM
So, karaoke? I really hope we get one of a few scenarios, though all of them are equally unlikely:

1) World of Pain or Living Dead(Whose game release would coincide with a Cineria release)
2) a Shinkan Shoujo song (So that we hear a bit of their song before those voice bank designations of theirs are used, if they get used at least)
3) the/an idol(')s(') version(s) of Sora (So that we know that they have at least thought of the girls singing it, if not releasing it with Kotori)
4) one of Jupiter's songs (We've heard some of the girls do Koi wo Hajimeyou in a radio thing before, so I think it'd be funny)
5) one of the 876pro songs (With all the 876pro references in the anime, it'd be nice to hear the idols sing their image songs)
6) one of the Radio songs (They're just so forgotten: FO(U)R? Aishita Aishiteru? 1, 2, 3?)
7) songs from the new Cinderella Girls CD's (To reference it as still being a part of the iM@S universe. And so we can hear Chihaya sing Koi Kaze or Never Say Never)

Notice that only one scenario uses songs the idols originally sang. A few would mean new or original songs, and the rest would be covers of existing songs. Why do I want one of these? Because it's Karaoke. The girls shouldn't be singing songs they sing normally, since that would just defeat the purpose. I included the Radio ones because I want them somewhere in the series, but it's the most doubtful one of all. Mix and match scenarios to taste, since Chihaya, Haruka, and Yayoi aren't likely to pick the same song, though using scenario 7 would allow for a good mix as far as explanations go.
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime
Post by: JNiles on May 02, 2012, 05:13:37 AM
Excellent scenarios, all of them.  Though judging by the screenshot selection, we'll get a few minutes of singing at most.  Considering the Namco Bandai strategy is to use bits and pieces of songs to sell the CDs that follow, perhaps the song layout can be predicted from that?  That means one brand new song (to lure in the fans that have everything else), and a bunch of rehashed Idolmaster songs and covers.  Ugh.

I do agree that singing their own songs at karaoke would be weird and a waste.  Cover songs are more likely- almost all of the existing CDs have them.

I can only imagine licensing fees were through the roof.

Either that it they were aiming for both and couldn't finish negotiations for the new series on time. Or maybe they will put it out later since the last blu-ray just came out and Japan is being such a collective baby about reverse importing that they have to space out the release.

There's really no way to know why they did it.

The biggest problem I have with Xenoglossia is that the voices are different from the rest of the series. If they dub it and somehow expand the iM@S franchise outside of Japan, that could allow for Xenoglossia to be consistent... In English, anyway.

Seems interesting, though. It could be a kickstarter to more iM@S in the English-speaking world, but I still have many doubts about iM@S being localized.

I realized after that someone might get the wrong impression, but I don't mean that website where you fund things with money.

And you're right about Xenoglossia not catching on. From a (pretty bad) show about mechs to a game about pushing buttons in time to music and dressing up teenage girls... Kind of a big difference there.

Except Xenoglossia's graphics and art aren't really up to par with 2012 standards... Even 5 years is a big difference.

Imagine a totally american IM@S with different characters doing concerts and lives around america.

That would be interesting, but I find it hard to imagine that sort of franchise in North America, especially from a video game with almost no reputation over here. But you never know...

Post by: Julio on July 04, 2012, 04:21:26 AM
I have yet to watch Xenoglossia all the way through, but once I watched it and like it, I will buy it to support the franchise in hope that they bring the main anime here. I just hope that the whole series is on a complete set though. It still is an iM@S anime.
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime
Post by: ikuto-sama on July 04, 2012, 08:52:53 AM
I'm disappointed that they aren't bringing the main anime to the U.S., but I don't see it being impossible in the future. The only problem would be what they would do about the songs if they decided to dub it, so it would likely be a sub-only release, which I'd still find worth it. I don't hate Xenoglossia, but it does have the issues of using different voice actresses and being completely different from the actual series. However, I do know some iM@S fans who discovered the iDOLM@STER games and music through watching Xenoglossia first and they enjoyed them, so it might finally shed some more light on iM@S in the States.
Title: Re: New idolm@ster anime

More often than not, songs aren't dubbed even when the show is. The songs don't necessarily force it to sub-only.
