Other iM@S games / Re: THE iDOLM@STER SideM: LIVE ON ST@GE!

I guess it's safe to say that this isn't a pure rhythm game. There's a rhythm game mode in it for Lives, but that's not what the entire game is built around.

it is a terrible idea to go into this expecting the exact same experience as SS or TD.

You're setting yourself up to hate this game because if you're going into it for the rhythm game, you're looking at a shallow game with no challenge.
The game is all about the entire package rather than just one mode. Idol Training, interacting, etc. are what make the game whole, not the rhythm game.

The lack of an MV mode and no voices in commus are the most baffling things and show the game was rushed to compete with UtaPri. I don't even mind the lack of a Master difficulty because you can't even lose in this game anyway, so the mere concept of having multiple difficulty levels is entirely moot if there's no challenge or stakes if you fail.

Overall, it's okay. I'd still play Deresute or Mirishita over this, but this is on the back burner for when I'm bored.

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

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

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

There's little reason to believe that this won't be a rhythm game due to the success of Starlight Stage and how Theater Days is shaping up to be. It's only fair that all three iM@S Productions get a rhythm game. Plus how the 3D Lives are executed look very similar to SS and TD.

In other news, the game is officially coming out this year.

Wanted to clarify a few things.

I can't believe THEATER DAYS and LIVE ON ST@GE (and the SideM anime!) are happening in the same year.

This is unconfirmed. Theater Days is coming out this year, but Live on St@ge has no release schedule planned out at all. Perhaps it'll come out to coincide with the anime?

Unlike Theater Days, LIVE ON ST@GE is made by the same developer that made Deresute iirc

Actually, Live on St@ge is being handled by a separate developer from Starlight Stage and Theater Days entirely. Cygames has nothing to do with the SideM franchise, let alone Live on St@ge.

which might explain why Million Live has yet to get a crossover event with Granblue Fantasy (iirc Cygames owns Deresute, Raibuste and GBF)!

It has nothing to do with developer. It has to do with platform, though. Cinderella Girls and SideM are both part of the Mobage platform while Million Live is part of the GREE platform.

And even when taking developers into consideration, Cygames did not make SideM. They did develop Cinderella Girls, hence the large number of crossovers between Cinderella Girls and Granblue.

Seems that some gameplay footage had been leaked:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEuPYxr4dtU - Sentimental Venus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSWXLt0byDQ - Koi no Lesson Shokyuuhen

This isn't a leak. This was officially shown on stream, so this is official gameplay footage.

I feel like the biggest reason is because the game was very divisive in terms of reception, mostly negative. Even the Japanese weren't very find of the game cuz of the DL Live system and how grindy the gameplay is.

I feel like Namco wants to kill this game and just work on a new console game.

Gami- P said  that he was glad that he found a studio that wanted to handle a side M anime. So I would say it is safe to assume that A1 will not be doing it. Of course there is no official source but I'm pretty sure it will be confirmed sooner than later


A producer and staff could still be A-1, but at the very least new info will be coming out soon.

Not sure if Million Live takes up the assets of an entire studio but judging by the card's art style and comparing it to the iM@S anime, I think A-1 Pictures are the people behind ML's art and they probably have their hands full with them as well as the many anime they put out each year. Not to mention they're finding plenty of success with the four seasons of UtaPri that they animated; they probably have no reason to work on a SideM anime. (Let's not forget the time A-1 worked one of their animators to death)

Keeping SideM to whatever-studio and Million Live to A-1 Pictures lets both franchises have quality content AND have content going on at the same time, so here's hoping SideM goes to another studio! Judging by the promo artwork, I'm not too worried about the quality of the anime (the story's a whole other rant haha)



Honestly, I feel like that's the best-case scenario. SideM and Million Live running at the same time under different studios would be an interesting experiment. If anything, I'd actually have more than one anime to watch during a season.

It does not necessary mean that Million Live anime get's delayed, since Side M anime will not be produced by a1 pictures

Is that confirmed and is there a source for that?

9
At first, I was aggressively against the idea of SideM getting an anime before Million Live. In fact, the mere idea made me furious.

However, over time, I came to accept the fact and realized that all it would do was delay a Million Live anime rather than outright cancel it.

Plus, this gives me a better opportunity to get introduced to SideM alongside the new Live on St@ge game.

So bring on the era of male idols, I say!

My only big issues with ML are the often horrible fanservice and that the main trio hardly does anything new compared to... any other main trio in the franchise.

Okay, I don't mind the fanservice too much since they are idols and a part of the job is gravure shoots and making yourself alluring to the audience. However, I will admit sometimes it's a bit absurd.

As for the main trio not getting too much attention, I think that actually plays to ML's benefit. A big issue I have with CG sometimes is that for such a big cast, they have a very unnatural bias towards their main trio, which after a while gets sickening. The very first election CD and the One for All DLC are the absolute worst offenders of this. ML's main trio not getting as much attention as others actually helps them not be shilled and overshadow the rest of the cast, so my opinion on them is much higher than New Generations as a group. They feel as more a part of the bigger picture rather than what everyone should only be paying attention to.

5th Anniversary Livestream happened.

- Cinderella Master Batch 10 is Yuuki Otokura, Ryo Matsunaga, and Yoshino Yorita.
- A collaboration between Cinderella Girls and Dearly Stars is happening soon
- 5th Live will be a nationwide tour across Japan
- (not mentioned here) Yui and Haruna alongside Snow Wings will be the next DLC pack for Vieweing Revolution.

I chose ML cuz ML has my favorite cast in iM@S. CG is too numerous and I'm getting a little bored of 765.

13
Wait, why would your mother have an issue with Deresute?

I totally hope you're right, she's my second favorite girl and I'm praying that she'll be the Cute CD from the next CINDERELLA MASTER batch (even though I think they'll go with 2 Passion and 1 Cool CD this time for Shin, Nono and Yoshino lmao).

B-B-But muh Takumi and Mifune. ;-;

General chatter / Re: What Anime Are You Watching Now?
« on: October 30, 2016, 11:50:32 PM »
I've been watching Jojo's Bizarre Adventure  after putting it off for so long. And I absolutely believe the hype. I finished Part 3 not too long ago and it is amazing. Consider me a fan.

It's not the most complex anime in the world, in fact it feels basic. But the sheer insanity of it all and how much the series revels in it helps me come back for more. Now I'm just  waiting on Part 4 to finish so I can bunge watch that.
