Derived products, CD albums & anime / ANIM@TION MASTER albums
« on: December 28, 2011, 04:45:07 am »
These are the albums for the anime - ANIMATION MASTER - featuring BGM tracks from the show as well as insert songs, TV version and full version.  I'm super excited about #06 coming out because it has Chihaya's "Yakusoku."  #05 was great for having "Marionette no Kokoro" among others.

So, the end of the anime comes with the announcement of the iM@S 7th Anniversary live concert in June 2012.

After watching a lot of videos of the previous years' concerts, maybe it would be fun to try and to go one in person.  It should be even grander now that the anime has been produced, along with lots of new songs since the last concert.

But then I take a look at the airfare, and from USA it's about $2000 USD for a ticket to Tokyo.  >___>  Well....

(And then I don't know how much concert tickets would be -- and good ones, too, so I don't end up all the way in the back, lol.)

Has anyone else gone or tried to go?  Maybe if you lived a lot closer to Japan than I do, it's probably cheaper.

THE iDOLM@STER 2 / Doing the dances in real life?

Trying to spawn a new topic off the huge one.  :)

Have you ever tried to do imas dances (or any similar anime/game dance) in real life?

I haven't done any imas ones, but in college I had a group of friends do dances from Suzumiya Haruhi and Lucky Star.  Sadly those college days are over, and I won't find anyone from my workplace who's willing, lol.  But they're fun to do, even if you're a guy.  :P  It's a great workout anyhow, which is never a bad thing.

Anyway, plenty of these videos online.  Here's a great one for THE IDOLM@STER 2nd Mix.

There's also a SMOKY THRILL that's kind of scary looking; I'll let you find that one on your own.  ^^;;

Hello!  I had known about Idolmaster for a while as "that idol simulator with the dance videos I keep seeing on YouTube" but never really paid it any real attention until the anime started airing this year.  (I totally ignored Xenoglossia.)  I've been following the anime every week and reading and learning more about the iM@S universe.  And my most recent commitment is purchasing the PS3 special box (This is my filmstrip!).  I completed my first playthrough this weekend and still have plenty more to do to get all those trophies.  ;)


Real Name: Harry
Sex: M
Country of Origin: USA
Age (upon joining): 26
Hobbies: programming, web design, puzzles

Q: How did you come across this site?
A: Google search.

Q: Why did you join this site?
A: Finally decided I want to try to get more involved and learn more about iM@S.  Also make contacts so I can ask questions if I get stuck in the game or wonder about a certain character.  :P

Q: Who is your fave idol?
A: Chihaya > Haruka > Yayoi > Miki > Hibiki > Makoto > Takane > Iori > Ritsuko > Azusa > Ami > Mami > Yukiho
(This ranking is not final; it will probably change often as I play more, watch more, and learn more.)

Q: Why is your username Crisu?
A: I made it up one day in 7th grade trying to figure out an AOL screen name.  It was an old roleplaying name but has since stuck anyway as an Internet handle.

Q: What are you into right now?
A: Assassin's Creed Revelations and Battlefield 3 are bought but still shrinkwrapped on my shelf.  ^^;;  Still playing my Imas2 until I can get around to those.  Maybe when I need a break from all this Japanese and want to play something in a language I'm fluent in, hah.

Q: Who's your favorite singer(s) right now?
A: Mizuki Nana, Perfume, Imai Asami

Q: Do you have any expectations from this site?
A: This should be the place for all English-language iDOLM@STER knowledge.


Someday, someday I will learn enough Japanese to enjoy this game to the fullest.   So far I've (sadly) been avoiding most of the promotion/commu events, which are the bulk of the character development.  I want to at least save up in-game money to get the best amulets and equips, so the technical aspect in later playthroughs will be less of an issue, and I can go back to playing the promo events with a kanji dictionary by my side and not worry about making it into Idol Academy.

I don't know what my outlook is for purchasing additional Blu-Ray volumes or G4U! games.  Maybe a Chihaya figure if they release a new one...

I just found the Japanese wiki for the game.  The English one on Wikia is a bit lacking (though it already has a lot for first-time gamers), so maybe I can muster the energy to help update it soon...
