The Idolm@ster 2 Guide Book
« on: July 14, 2011, 12:04:13 am »
I just ordered a copy from playasia to go with the game which I'm waiting for in the mail and I was wondering if anyone has the guidebook themselves? I was looking all over for scans or videos of someone showing the contents of the guide book (I'm obsessed with guide books and I like to see the interior - and what info/pictures it contains). And I couldn't find any besides 2 pictures on google. Does anyone have a copy and are willing to maybe film flipping through the book or upload some scans for it? Or even just navigating me to a site with what I'm asking for would be of great help too D:

Thanks in advance!! :)

Lessee, from the front to the back we have the cover, some stickers, pages with stuff nobody cares bout.
Page 6-68, interviews, photos of the cvs, useless in game images, chart on how characters call eachothers.
69-87 useless game info nobody cares about, seriously it's mostly the basics and useless lists
88-97 blatant ads; images of some figs, cds, the 5th live dvd/bd, animu
Back cover.

Awful as a guide but nice to own if you're more interested in the people behind the game.

Haha XD Thanks I appreciate the quick reply and you summing it up for me :) I'm sure I'll still enjoy it despite all the "useless" stuff XD something to constantly flip through while I wait for my games I guess.

I don't know if you still want it, but otaku.com has a few pictures of the inside of the book: http://www.otaku.com/products/31430

I personally could buy this book solely for the fact that it has pictures of the costumes & full accessory sets~

Its not a guide book by any means, more or less a fan book.
It's like the "guide" for the first game, but much more watered down.
A professional amateur.

I did a blog entry about it, taking a few photos of it: http://blog-soth.blogspot.com/2011/07/idolmster-2-official-guide-book.html

Personally I don't think is worth getting, since the only vagely useful thing are the pictures and those are not very good. For me, the best part are the interviews with the cvs, but it's totally useless without Japanese knowledge.

So it fail as an artbook as well?
Very well. I shall take your advise and let that book be on its way...
