Meh, translation hasn't really picked up as of now.

Will wait for the manga to be completely translated

So, for the last two weeks I was reading im@s manga that I got back in July. I understand that I’m behind the schedule and everyone is more interested in DS manga but still I wanted to share my impressions.
The first book to read was the second volume of ‘relations’. Surely I found it to be very nice. The story and design are both great. I liked the ending, too.
I made some photos along the way. I’m sorry, I didn’t quite feel like putting the books into the scanner.
(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/th_relations2_lastbutonetpage.jpg) (http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/?action=view&current=relations2_lastbutonetpage.jpg)
ミキ
「負けないよ」
千早
「手加減…しないわよ?」
Miki
“I won’t lose (him to you)”.
Chihaya
“I won’t go easy on you (=expect no allowances from me)”.

The bonus consists of the report of im@s great party in 2008. I’m sure that those who attended the show enjoyed it a lot. It’s pretty much like the one you could see on the bonus DVD for Live for You! but further improved. You can notice the jokes like asking Kotori to come up to the stage, the producer choosing to pass, the problem with Chihaya’s breast size and calling Haruka “Your Excellency” in the end. Ah, also Juri was crying again and Chiaki (Miura) appeared out of nowhere saying she’d just arrived from Osaka.
The next manga was im@s break. I promised earlier to confirm if it was a complete trash or not. Now I can say no, it’s not. Of course it becomes obvious that the plot lacks consistency and there are problems with character design, too. I don’t think that it’s a problem of Fujima-san’s skill but rather I can think of a lack of time to draw all that. Say, the art on the front cover is very cute and you can also find very nice sketches at the back of the book but what is in the chapters is not very convincing. The situation improves in chapter 2 and on but the problem with crooked or wry faces remains throughout the whole volume. I mean that the author is best at drawing people full and half face but everything else is off the mark.
What is good is that Miki is back to being blond. Her fir-like hairstyle is definitely a thing.
In the bonus section the author is kind of saying sorry for the problems I indicated above. He didn’t find a place for Makoto, Miura, Ritsuko, Ami and Mami. And then, the producer is missing, too. Instead we get a 16 years old guy who looks 10 on the 3rd page.
A huge problem of this book is a very small font used to fit tons of text on the pages. At times it’s so small that it becomes hardly readable. Of course I now have my eyes fixed but reading small text is one of the things that brings you closer to blurry image, as Suki Daisuki says.
The plot could also be better but I should say that the episode with the gang changing places was very laughable.
In the beginning of this scene everyone’s in shock, especially Iorin. According to the author, 765 pro originally occupied a skyscraper but then was moved to a very small office on the 3rd floor due to a huge debt. Who was fired in the process and how many people retained their jobs is not specified. How this debt was accumulated remains a mystery, too.
765 Pro in the anime:
(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/th_765_office.jpg) (http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/?action=view&current=765_office.jpg)
And in the manga:
(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/th_imas_break11.jpg) (http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/?action=view&current=imas_break11.jpg)
Yukiho is digging holes again. This time she dug so many that Kotori was forced to bring a sign saying “Digging holes is strictly prohibited”. The idols are now supposed to live in the dorms together with Yuutaro, much to Yukiho’s terror.
(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/th_imas_break12.jpg) (http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/imas_manga/?action=view&current=imas_break12.jpg)
Perhaps it’s wry humor but still. Other than that the humor tends to be slapstick. I should say that I missed Negima completely but I can assume that the jokes and plot devices are partially borrowed from there.
Except for in the end, when Yuutaro and Haruka got lost in the mountains there was a suggestive line like
「裕太郎くん 痛っ!」
「あっごめん 
ちょっと太すぎたかなぁ」
「ううん
なれれば大丈夫だと思う」
“Yuutarou-kun. Ouch, it hurts!”
“Ah, sorry.  It’s probably too fat (big)”.
“No, it’s OK. I think that I should be fine if I get used to it”.

You can guess that in truth Yuutarou was trying to fix a blister on Haruka’s foot which she got from wearing geta shoes.

So I should say that on the whole I actually enjoyed reading this manga. I’ll make sure to get volume 2 once I have a chance.

this thing is gonna be a haruka end for sure.
im pretty sure a lot of people who play the actual games will be pretty raged to know a 16 year old kid illegally working as a producer is stealing your idols hearts. actually i know quite a lot of people who do.
and i bet the illustrator did some crazy excuse to explain why hes a producer aside the fact albert wesker is in the hospital cause he forgot to take his daily G virus injection and got a heart attack, and since when was takagi working like a 'producer' for the idols?

also lovin how all the characters are not their game counterparts.

relations is diamonds compared to break.
infact relations was awesome

yes, excuse me, i do hate break. i'd rather buy dearly stars than break
bought the first volume, did not like it at all. sold it to my friend
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER BREAK!
Post by: Pizzaman on August 31, 2009, 12:07:46 pm
Word. My copy of Break is currently sitting inside a shelf at my manga circle's club room.

Relations was nice. I didn't really appreciate the Chiha-Miki focus of it, but at least it had a storyline.

Well, at least Break vol.2 will probably be coming with some new DLC. Not all is wasted.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER BREAK!
Post by: h4ataraxia on August 31, 2009, 07:30:14 pm
i bet people only buy it for the dlc

this reminds me of a commu in im@s, were you're trying to sell cd's but people only buy it because it comes with a cellphone strap

Judging by the way things are progressing, this definetly reeks of a HarukaXproducer ending.

BTW
Negi only actively got ONE confession so far. moe moe jouchan~
I guess that kind of doesn't matter though.. Since basically all his class is filled with middle schoolers that want to rape him

yes he has, it was already a flag when he tripped over haruka and suprisingly landed perfectly ontop of her in a sexual position. also how iori bought him coffe... FLAGS EVERYWHERE have you read the whole first volume sir? I'm sure you'll atleast say "...lol haruka end"

the reason why takagi is in the hospital is cause albert wesker forgot to took his daily G-virus injection.

no kuroi will be chris redfield.

Hello!

I'm glad to announce that I've placed an order with amazon.jp, so I'm getting vol.2 of Im@s Break! But unfortunately they don't have the limited edition so I had to order the cheap one. Well, I don't think it's a big loss because the manga itself is not the best in the world to begin with.

What interests me now is "THE IDOLM@STER 4th ANNIVERSARY PARTY SPECIAL DREAM TOUR’S!!". Too bad I don't have a blu-ray player. The HD version costs just a thousand yen more but you get it in decent quality.
I was about to get it along the way. But then I had to put it aside because here I face big problems with the customs agency every time I make big orders. Perhaps I'll try to get it next time.

Well, I agree that the manga is trash. We discussed it back when I was reading the first volume.  But I just though it would be convenient to get the second volume now that I'm placing an order anyway. 400 yen is actually pretty cheap if you ask me.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER BREAK!
Post by: h4ataraxia on October 02, 2009, 11:13:55 pm
all manga are 400 - 600 yen.
look at the back of the japanese mangas you have
it will show the price
looking @ my negima series right now, all of them are 390 yen each, and my prisma illya is 450

loving the extra cd songs right now, hibiki's happy material and takane's cutey honey. chihaya's is pretty dissapointing and haruka is pretty good.
didnt bother to listen to the drama. the moment i heard 'yuutarou' i closed that thing.

A typical H-manga costs 1000 yen. The "light" H-mangas, like Aki-sora, cost the same as regular manga (500-600).

Yeah.

Ah, great comment.
それに加えて、彼は Der変態、The Hentai、変態大人.
(note. 大人=大人=adult)

Speaking of manga price. Sometimes there are limited editions which are really worth buying. For example, I’ve been reading Tsubasa Chronicle since 2005. When I first learned about it there had already been 10 volumes available. So, I started with the normal edition but then the next volume was only available in “luxury” version. It costs around 1200 yen. When I got it I understood that it was a great purchase. It’s like heaven and earth compared to the ordinary book. The book is larger and the comic is printed on a thick, snow-white paper. Awesome edition. So I now have 12 such books (vol 11 to 23).
Ps. My package with manga has just been dispatched from the amazon warehouse in Chiba. I can get it in a week if I’m lucky enough to avoid delays at the customs office.

Not really. Since I do the same to preview before buying or to obtain hard-to-find comics/doujins, I'm in no position to judge. Although I can say that your attempt at sarcasm sucks. Hard.

We all know the events portrayed in Im@s Break is actually a new TV series being filmed, with every character making an appearance (sans Takagi, who is played by the special guest, Albert Wesker.)

i dont think they'res gonna be more translations.
but let me summerize it for you briefly.
later he wont stop dreaming or thinking about the idols either naked or in bikini(especially haruka), then he dreams about miki in bed next to him talking about her bust size. then the haruka intro begins where haruka sings in the park and the producer meets haruka, EXCEPT the author made it so that haruka trips and falls ontop of yuutarou.
then they go to some hot spring, haruka injures her foot and yuutarou uhh somehow fixes it by wrapping his ripped clothes around it then haruka is all happy and lovey and then the 961 idols come in. bam end.
and the author made it so that iori says "HENTAI HENTAI" like every 2 seconds even if yuutarou isnt even doing anything.
the lack of azusa, ritsuko, makoto, and twins is bad enough. they introduce the DS character without them... wonder how the story's gonna go :K

well based on the 2 chapters i did read and the information you've all given me i'm not making any final judgment calls until someone finishes translating the first break manga and i can read it myself (im stubborn like that) but i have a feeling the translator's really busy. I can see why the artist feels this is the best way to go with the manga. they assume that yuutarou is someone im@s fans can relate to and that the reader will be able to put themselves in his shoes and in this way enjoy the idols through him since direct interaction is impossible in a manga. this is just my assumption at what the artist was trying  to do and its something we can probably find in some IM@S fanfics somewhere.

im@s break is popular among people who never played the games or new to the im@s series, because of one of few sole reasons. because of how the game is portrayed as first person and you are directly interacting with the character.

- Way to go, Sev. Really.

I'm actually worried now, since there really isn't much good to be said about Break in terms of story. I got onto this manga bewcause the art was cute--but as noted, the artwork is way inconsistent in the course of the manga. And the mangaka is working on how many different works at this time? I was looking into Lyrical Nanoha Vivid for a time and--yeah, it's starting to happen there too (art and story going whoopee all over the place)...

The mangaka also likes to render the more ecchi-harem pages, while paying no attention to the story or stage performances during the manga. I can't tell whether they are intent on making a statement like "Im@s is more commonly known for its harem!" or not.

i have to say i found the artwork to be fairly well drawn.

read jojo's bizzare adventure and then tell me about fairly well drawn.

the author doesnt exactly have a good art style imo, makes the character faces look completely flat in all angles or like a dogs face on the portrait angle.
and even for bishoujo art, i'd rather prefer something more negima (with the awesome backgrounds that is)
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER BREAK!
Post by: Harrason on October 09, 2009, 07:41:39 pm
I think its the shading, pretty non-existent which is probably the reason why its flat. Anyway everyone looks the same to me too, now that i looked at it. As if every single person had the same facial features/cheek bone structures.

Negima and Break are pretty different when it comes to certain facial features too. In Negima i can see the insides of the mouths, and in Break its as if the entire insides of their mouths are white. But once again i guess its because they omitted a lot of the shading.

Hello! I’m happy to announce that I received my package from Japan yesterday. I wanted to tell you right away but was busy scanning the covers of the manga I got.
Anyways, I’m very glad that this time I didn’t have problems with the customs office and the packaged was delivered without any delays.
It looks this way –
(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/th_imas_break_vol2.jpg) (http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/?action=view&current=imas_break_vol2.jpg)(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/th_imas_break2_front.jpg) (http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/?action=view&current=imas_break2_front.jpg)(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/th_imas_break2_back.jpg) (http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh307/nikorai/?action=view&current=imas_break2_back.jpg)

And if you’re interested in other items that I got, here’s the link
http://nikorai1.narod.ru/m1.html

I’m going to start reading it soon.
Meanwhile I was reading im@s master book, the communication guide. It all looks very interesting but I have to admit that I donno like half (or a bit less) of the kanji there. That means I need to work harder on my Japanese.


h4ataraxia
Thanks for the link saying the manga was no. 1 in Japan. I guess you don’t know when the trash can be more successful than some creative work.

Thanks for the link saying the manga was no. 1 in Japan. I guess you don’t know when the trash can be more successful than some creative work.

the manga is trash
it sold a lot because people only wanted it for the extra CD. if was even considered that the CD wasnt the extra anymore, the manga was the extra content.

Didn't volume 1 (limited edition) become top seller of the week as well?

It's either the problem with my English or Japanese.
But I actually understand what she meant.

If you're fond of literal translations then she says 'cd is making a set'.

You look like a strict teacher.
とろこで、この場合に「highschool」ということはどういう意味ですか。それは高校ですか、それとも大学ですか? もしかしたら、あなたは博士?。アメリカのhighschool なら、「高校」の意味があると思います。

I did mix up the phrases ‘come along with (smb)’ and ‘come with (something)’. Those things sort of look alike to me. In this case it’s not even the problem of Japanese. I did study English thoroughly at the uni (graduated with distinction) but I guess we all can make mistakes at some points, so you’ll have excuse me this time.
Also, I’m sorry that this talk moves us off topic. The main idea was that the bonus CD turned out to be better than the manga itself and I remembered a quote that somehow fits in this context.

OK, I finished reading the 2nd volume. For me it was quite OK. And honestly I didn’t expect a continuation. But it looks like it’s only the beginning. The first volume was funnier and the second volume is more story-oriented.
Beside im@s break I also received 4 volumes of “Marirowa” and 3 volumes of Tsubasa, so I’ll turn to reading them next.

He wants her to cover the song, not the screen.

And yes, Eri would have done a great job with Renai Circulation. Sadly, fanmade characters don't get cds.

Anyways, I'm pumped for this. Love all of Bakemonogatari's OPs and all the idols match up with the songs. I just adore iM@S covers~

Haramis version of staple stable and Nunu's ambivalent world are pretty good, Akki's sugar sweet nightmare reminds me of her first single and is quite interesting,
Kaerimichi's meh and I don't really like Kugyuu's version of Renai circulation.

That happened to me too, I could only read the 1st chapter but it looked pretty interesting.

My guess is that the DS manga will only have 2 tankobon, like relations manga.

Rant.

Nobody likes Fujima Takuya, we all know his "best-selling works" only sell because they're spin-offs based on well-known series and because of the limited edition extras.

Flat art, generic copypasta faces, messy storylines with characters with mangled personalities and settings, awful panel lay-out, inconsistent pacing and generic predictable usage of needless fan-service at random moments don't exactly make his works attractive in my opinion.

I like everything iM@S, but only two eluded my brain: Xenoglossia and Break!

Former because it's spin-off mecha and messy story, latter because it's spin-off harem and Fujima Takuya

The last time I heard of "Fujima Takuya", "Negima!?" ruined "Negima!" 's fans' mood, and that was the time when I'm a Negima! fan

Hell, my friend offered me the chance to help me translate Break! to English (the whole vol 01) but despite everything, I resisted; the prospect of harem is too uninteresting for me, since I know what iM@S is about from the beginning

Still, might be a good read for others. I dropped it after second chapter though :shrug:
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER BREAK!
Post by: TweenDoriru on January 24, 2011, 06:33:44 pm
You know, as infamous as he is, I wonder why they even had Fujima Takuya make an iM@S manga...

reading it off of the mangafox link isn't really catching my attention particularly...and, well, I think that having the main character live with all the idols is a storyline hook in itself. Maybe I think weird but if I was a male producer, I don't think I'd like the idea of some other guy living with all of my idols XDD
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER BREAK!
Post by: Raestloz on January 24, 2011, 06:54:01 pm
Since iM@S is all about girls, harem-based (and hentai-based) doujin will appear eventually, it's just that I never expected a doujin to become an official merchandise, as spin-off as it can be, an official is an official

To tell you the truth, as far as I can remember, the storyline is generic and bland. Nothing interesting that makes you as someone who has never heard of iM@S want to know "What next?"

I mean, look, I know there really is no new ideas you can use in Japan. Every idea has been used at least once, only variations of it.

But reading this reminds me a lot of Love Hina. Live alone with everyone, in a dorm, main hero inherited something from his grandpa,then everyone will begin to like him, and so on. Now, Love Hina got some interesting stuff but... well...

This doesn't do the original game justice is what I'm saying.

I think I shouldn't bash others' works like this, so I'm outta here

Hahaha, I agree fully with this. Even if it's another one of those harem mangas and I don't really care for those and I don't feel it does the original game justice, I'm still going to keep reading it. And hey, it could be worse... It could have mechas in it.

Also, I think Yukiho is really adorable in Break as well. <3
