Can anyone please take a picture of their schedule screen and point out how many fans are in the area? I am trying to get to 100k but I have no idea how many I have at the current moment...

Ripped from my iDOLM@STER 2 Let's Play (To actually begin in January):

With badly drawn arrows to indicate where the fan counts are. I don't see why it's so hard to find them.

Edit: Missed an arrow. How stupid of me.

For a mini Japanese lesson, the 人 character is a counter for people.  So 6131人 means 6,131 people in that area are fans.

万 represents 10,000.  In the West, we separate numbers every 3 places.  For example, one million is written as 1,000,000.  In Japan, numbers are separated every 4 places.  If you look in the southernmost region in TheTanStar's image, the fan count is 1万0884人.  This means 10,884 fans.

So you want to get 10万0000人 in a region for 100k fans.

(Towards the top of the image is 3万3727人 which is the total fans you have across the nation.)

Or if you want really basic (this is how I always did it because I didn't know what the kanji were orz), you can just ignore the symbols and you have the number of fans you need anyway XD

Thank a lot for that really! I always wondered about that front number. I thought I had only 8k fans in one area thinking I would never reach 100k fans haha!

I'm wondering, there's some text with a paper and a number next to where a reporter's name would be. Is that anything significant?

Looking at the source footage, I think that's just the number of things that can performed in that region.

Oh man, that makes total sense.  I thought it was some sort of event level indicator. -.-

Level 9 on week 8? I'd be in some serious trouble with that sort of rating!

I couldn't read the last character for that, I knew the first part read as Oshigoto(Job/Work). I had reason to believe it meant number, though.

Ah, okay. Thought it was some sort of thing where you have to an event with this number in order to acquire a reporter...now it's just a matter of luck.

Ok so something really weird happened to me yesterday as I was playing Im@s.

I was about to do a Prom with Takane (I can't remember the exact name but it had ''TV CM'' in it) and just when Takane started to talk, Producer-san blinked two times (Well the screen became black as if he was closing his eyes), the Prom ended and I got a Perfect Communication...But I didn't even have to choose any answers, and it lasted something like 10 sec!

Did that ever happen to any of you?
I'd doubt that this is specific to this this Prom, because the answers were there on the Communication Guide...

There are two paid promotions with no answers required. They are "ファンイベントのお仕事" and "地方TVCMのお仕事". Just select the correct region, and you get a free Perfect Communication. However, these don't show up until late game to balance it out.

Oh, I see!
Thank you, it's nice for people like me who can't read Japanese xD
