Title: Idolm@ster 10th Anthology Comic
Post by: mariokirby on January 04, 2016, 06:10:01 am
Sorry, for asking a dumb question, but what is this?

Yes, the price looks "interesting".

The Wiki mentions an old Anthology Comic that came out way back during the arcade era, and I think it was just a collection of short manga skits.


So, I'm assuming this is going to be the same thing? 

Just curious, will this anthology manga just show 765pro, or will the spin-offs be included? (I guess it might be hard to tell)


It looks appealing because I like the cover art, so I hope the actual manga art will be just as good.

Yeah, anthology comics are usually a bunch of random guys doing one-shots, though you'll see some more notable names pop up from time to time. Since it's a bunch of random people, art quality and art style will... keep changing every couple of pages, but will hopefully all be good.

Yumehito Ueda did a one-shot for said Arcadem@s era anthology comic, and he eventually did relations. I think I saw some of the DS mangaka pop up in some of the Cinderella Girls anthologies too.

Ah, I see.  Thanks, for the help.

I guess you sort of answered my other question that I quickly added in my post.  There were Anthologies to both CG and ML.  So, I'm assuming this anthology will be for 765pro although the spin-offs might make cameo appearance.


Off Topic:

Oh, and I appreciate you and the older fans for sticking around to help us inexperience fans to learn more about im@s.

It might be an Anthology comic for 765 to celebrate the (now late) 10th Anniversary.

The cover art hooked me because it's done by the same artist as the Million Live manga (something I heavily recommend).

Also, that price. .-.

So, my copy finally came.  I did a quick skim through to see how it is.

The manga is divided into three parts.  About 85% is dedicated to 765 part while the other 15% rest is for ML and CG parts.

I was a little disappointed with the multiple art styles for the 765 part.  I mean the different art styles for each manga skit is okay (some better than others), but I liked the art style found on the cover.  So, I was hoping they used the same artist for one 765 chapter or something.

Actually, the ML part got to have that art style found on the cover.  Someone mentioned that it's the same artist that did this cover and the ML manga, so I guess it isn't a surprise that they used the same artist for the ML part.

Hell yeah! Freaking love Moji's Million Live manga!
