The accessory name should be Akabara baretta if i'm not wrong
So you think it's just Red Rose Barrette?
That would make sense since that's what it is.

About the outfit menu at ~6 mins...

Does anyone know what the name of the head accessory is? I don't know what the first part of the name says.

By the way, the outfit is called Twinkle Star, the body accessory is Paradise Pochette, the hand accessory is Queen Brace, and the leg accessory is Sunny Day Leg Charm, if anyone wanted to/didn't know.

You know.  You sort of are acting like my buddy, Yukibro.  But, in a good way.

Ah, yes, I've actually met him. Before I had, I thought I knew at least most of everything about Yukiho, but boy, was I wrong. Haha...
I was really impressed when he showed me everything he'd done with her. Needless to say, my longing to talk with someone about her was satiated.

She really is just a nice, sweet character.

Old topic, I know, but I don't think something like this should have an expiration date.

Since I have a hard time conveying my opinion about Yukiho without going full-blown heart-on-sleeve mode, I'll try to contain myself.
Mostly, my attraction to her comes from this feeling I get from her that she's the most promising or definitive, that something will happen with her, that she's going to make herself the way she wants to be. She may need a push every once in a while, but the momentum she gains from it vastly exceeds the effort.

She may not seem that special when one looks at her, but I don't think a flashy appearance is always needed to set a person apart. Anyway, her personality more than makes up for her relatively plain looks.

Quite a few people probably don't like her or even get annoyed with her because she whines a lot, and I can understand that, but if one were to go through her route in 2, they'd be able see that she whines when she talks about things that she cares about. It's just how she expresses her concern and that's okay, because real or not, nobody's perfect.

Besides that, I love how she hides a really caring side and only shows it at specific points which makes it that much more of a reward. To me, she's just the most endearing character, with a metric tonne of potential and she feels like someone you really can count on, whether she would come through sooner or later.

And as a knowledgeable individual, for which I respect greatly, told me and led me to understand, "her route in 2 exists as an excellent counter-point: it never belittles her, never falls for the easy route, and it may dwell a bit on her bad attitude and acting before she gets better only because it shows how much she changes after. One moment that really stood out to me was her talking about having everyone's expectations on her shoulders. Keep in mind, no one was forcing her directly to do things; SHE shouldered the heavy burdens because SHE put them on herself. She was so insecure that she always felt like every mistake was fatal, but she pushed on anyway. And in the end, she did it because she valued others over herself, because she didn't appreciate herself, so her ultimate realization was that she had to learn to appreciate that side of her to really blossom." That, alone, should say it all.

With all that in mind, she honestly seems like a 'paragon' of selflessness and resolve, though it might sound a little misguided. But that's who she is, and nothing could ever take that from her. She may stumble and fall, or even get lost once in a while, but I know she'll always find her way back.

Been meaning to try this for a while.
I was surprised when Kaede and Azusa ranked higher than Karen, Riina, and Nao. I guess I do love their voices.

Not sure if I understood this correctly, but are you trying to look for a specific Store exclusive bonus or are you just trying to buy the limited edition?  Because limited/regular editions can be found on English import sites like amiami.

By that, I meant just the plain game without anything additional. Chances are I may end up just getting a copy of it without anything special, so I was wondering if there was a better site to get it from but you, derezzed, and Setsuna already answered.

So, thanks to the three of you.

Okay, so I guess I am seriously looking at getting a PS4 and importing this.* About the limited edition stuff, it'd be nice naturally, but having seen the page they're being sold on, I don't think I'd know how to navigate it very well. I also don't have a really safe place to store any of it after it would arrive. That's not to say it shouldn't be worth it to anyone, there's definitely some awesome stuff, I'm just not sure if it'd be worth it for me to work out how to scoop some up with the effort.

Please forgive me.

I'm wondering if I should maybe just wait for a couple months after the game comes out and see if a copy gets listed on Ebay? Or do people frown upon that? I've purchased a few other iM@S things from Ebay listings that came just fine. I feel like I should probably get a copy from a Japanese site anyway. :-\

*Though my kanji comprehension is a little embarrassing, I won't let it deter me.

Hey there!

There should be a lot to talk about, I'm sure everyone's fired up about the next game coming out this year, it'd be rightfully so!

Welcome to the fray :D

Shameful feels ahead. I really don't even understand why.

Anyway this happened a while ago, maybe two or three months, so I don't think I remember all the details. Of course though, it was about Yukiho.
All I remember is that her, I, my sister(I don't know lol), and I guess one of my sister's friends were all standing in our yard. I swung something around in her direction, maybe a towel or some type of cloth, without even touching her but she covered her face and ran through our garden that has two gates and into the woods behind our house so my sister and her friend followed her trying to get her to come back, yet I also seem to remember her running around the back of our house into a different yard, so I went that way after her. After a while I got mad cause I couldn't find her anymore and went back in the house.

After that it gets fuzzy, she was inside, she wasn't, I did actually find her... I don't remember.

But I never got to apologize, I remember that.

Am I a terrible person? Sure feels that way.

Through some miracle, mine ended up being the number of Yukiho's birthdate after hers, meaning it's 24 days later.
Not that I'm complaining, I think that's pretty lucky and just awesome.

We're a small, friendly forum.

Hi, nice to meet you. Haha, I gathered that much in the less than 24 hours I've been here. :)

I see you've watched the anime, so that's a start (though not a great adaptation of the games).  As the others suggested, I highly recommend playing the games (I know you mentioned you don't have money).  The newest game, Platinum Stars, is coming out on PS4 this July, so I highly recommend that.  If you own a PS3, then I highly recommend One for All and Idolm@ster 2.  You could watch online videos for these games if you can't play them.  There's Idolm@ster 1, but that's on a region-lock Xbox360, so it maybe more convenient just to watch videos for that.

I would really like to play or even just personally watch someone play any of the games. I guess I wasn't clear, I basically don't have any console to play any of the games with right now. But yes, I have and still do watch a bunch of videos regarding them.

In the mean time, keep exploring other im@s stuff such as the music albums, mangas, dramas, Movie/OVA, etc.  Also, continue reading the wiki as that has a wealth of information about the franchise, and the people here worked hard on it.

I have seen the movie, I know of the radio... thing... iM@S Station, I think it is, or at least was. I'm not sure how to get my hands on any of the manga other than buying them online. I wouldn't be surprised if it was mostly with yen, though.

There are several Yukiho fans here as you probably already seen like Naryoril.  So, I'm sure you'll make some friends here.  One of my buddies is a Yukiho fan and has taught me a lot about her.
Oh, I know. ;D That's basically reason enough for me to visit here because I live in a super small city, and I'm almost convinced that I'm the only person around here that's even heard of Project iM@S.

You mean a 3rd vision?  Well, it was on the table way a few years ago, but I guess it didn't go anywhere.  Platinum Stars is actually sticking with 2nd vision.  (Personally, I don't want a 3rd vision, but that's just my opinion.)

I don't really know, I remember on a different site someone linking a conversation with one of the developers? They talked about general stuff but towards the end when asked about the future of the project, they mentioned essentially starting over because they wanted it to feel like a whole new game. I don't know what that entails, but it was from maybe February of this year. If I looked hard enough, I'm sure I could find it again. This is the first I'm hearing about Platinum Stars, though.

Thank you.

Erm... My first impression is that it's really tragic. I think Yurika(some people may think it strange that I call her that, though she legally changed her name) sort of got cheated, though that could have happened to anyone. After that though, optimistically, I guess I consider Yukiho's seiyuu change to be equivalent to her maturing or changing like she always wanted to, even though they still stuck with that story in the second vision. As far as the tone difference, I don't really prefer one over other because I like them for different reasons. Yurika was the first to voice her and (to me) sounds better in slower or sweeter songs, while Azumin is her newer seiyuu and sounds better(to me, again) for more intense songs like say, Overmaster. I just don't think I'd get as much from it if Yurika were to sing that, as opposed to 思い出をありがとう, for example. There is a video of my song on YouTube in which both of them sing, which I think is really awesome.

Also, similar to how I'm member 1001, you're only two posts away from 765. How bout that? :P

Welcome to the forum

And good joice for your favorite idol ;) You came through the anime to im@s and like Yukiho, that's quite rare afaik. The way she is portrayed is way exaggerated compared to the games, especially her fear of men, which in other media is just a "bad at dealing with men". On top of that, out of all the idols she is the one who grows the most over the course of the story (and frankly, she also needs to grow the most), but the anime gives her an episode really early on and the pretty much ignores her for the rest, and thus never shows her growth.

You said you really want to play the games, what is stopping you? Is it the money or the language? If it's the language you can play the games just fine, even if you you loose out on the story. I played im@s 2 with only minimal Japanese knowledge, but it was the final reason why i picked up serious Japanese studies (after playing the game for over 100 hours...)


Yeah, it kinda bums me out when I think of how few people actually like her. But I'm not sure if I'd want the amount to stay the same because it feels more close-knit I guess, or increase for obvious reasons. And I feel they exaggerated her "disposition" because they'd only have one or two episodes to express it. As you say, though, it doesn't really equate to the game's version of it. Hah, don't even get me started on the episode number. You know there were people that complained about that single episode and said they hoped they never touched on Yukiho's personality through the rest of the show?

Yes, the main thing is money. Basically a few different people want me to buy a bunch of different things, meanwhile I want to get myself a new computer tower and a Japanese Xbox, so I don't know what to do. I can't afford all of them at once since a portion of the money I do earn goes to bills and such. I'm only a little worried about the language part, though. I know how to read hiragana and katakana, and I own a freakin' old Japanese-English dictionary, but I can only recognize(let's be generous here), maybe 20 kanji. I'd prefer not to miss out on story, naturally, but I don't think I'd be that worried about it.
And actually, Idolmaster was the initial reason I started going into relative overdrive learning Japanese, haha... ^^;
