Now that I saw the preview, I'm more worried, I think that this new character will behave like Kuroi and she will probably bully the Cinderella Project...

Although it's good to see Kaede again, I think that she'll have a bigger role in this season.

As long as she isn't a Kuroi copypasta, I'm okay...Nothing against Kuroi, he's cool and all, but still...

She seems more Lawful Evil than him, tbh. Also you can actually see her face lol.

The way I see it, both Kuroi and Mishiro are the main antagonists of their respective stories and are absolute jerks, but for different reasons.

Kuroi was more of a direct villain in 2011. His main goal was to ruin 765 no matter what it takes, thus making him a more direct threat to the idols. His actions and motives were more of a cartoon or comic book villain with schemes that'll sabotage 765 and only because he wants to see them crumble and suffer. Kuroi's overall theme being revenge.

Mishiro, on the other hand, is an indirect villain in this situation. Like Maka said, she's more of a Lawful Evil character. Her actions and goals are still selfish, but instead of a cartoon villain, it's more of a malicious boss.  Judging from the end of EP14, she wants to restructure 346's idol division into a way she sees fit, no matter what opposition she has. She knows she can do this because "I am the head of this division, thus you will all follow me without question". Mishiro's overall theme being control.

So while they do have their similarities, such as being head figures in a company and having a heavy motif with the color black, they each have their own motivational differences. Due to this, I wouldn't worry about Mishrio being a retread of Kuroi.

Loved episode 14. Loved it, loved it, loved it. Sure... it wasn't super exciting, but it really put down the ground work for some great potential.

The handling of Mayu was awesome. Her entire shtick of being a yandere makes her somewhat one-dimensional and very predictable as far general characterization goes, but it was great to see how utterly oblivious the other idols were to how unhealthy that kind of obsession is, stays on key with CG lore. Overall her cameo was enough to make you want more, but not so much you'd tire of it. Also the things we visually saw her capable of, made her much more creepier than the CD drama tracks could do with just sound.  8)

I also felt great when the series cemented that other Producers are responsible for the various girls. Keeps things more "realistic" -- and the twist helps explain why Mayu isn't trying to kill any of the Cinderella Project members.

While Mishiro's actions in the after credits are troubling, it doesn't make her a bad person. We don't know her intentions yet. She may very well believe her plan is for the company's interests, and just because it could turn out to be a mistake, does not mean it was evil or selfish. She was mentioned to be returning from the American branch, which she may have made super successful (and a reason for being transferred back to the Japanese branch).

Also... that scene with Mishiro fixing P-kun's tie seems to be setting a ship on sail for some fans.  If she proves popular enough, mayhaps she will appear in the 4-koma/game settings?

***EDIT***
Still crossing my fingers that Staff-san makes an appearance (or gets mentioned) in the anime. The man needs more idol love.  :D

I can't get myself to pass any judgement on Miss Mishiro as of now, despite that shocking turn of events she proposed.

The new episode just hit -- and one's adoration of Kaede is justified. That's all I can say about this one.
Suddenly, bow-wow-wow~. :3

Yes, Koi Kaze is an insert, and it isn't just some 5 second backdrop either :3
