Assuming Dearly Stars takes place after Im@s 2 everything would add up.

Be it not for the fact that DS still uses the pre-iM@S2 ages and Ricchan still being an idol..

Ami'd be useless for my current lineup so someone else should give her a warm, cozy home.

Do I have to rely on the gacha to get rare idols, or are they just really rare findable girls during work and I'm not finding them?
You can't get rares from jobs. Gatcha, collecting costume pieces, participating in promotions, events etc can give you rares.
765Pro characters can currently only be obtained by gatcha, by leeching one from a dummy account or by participating in promotions, though most of those are unavailable to silly foreigners.

So what do the grey ones mean? Random?
Costume pieces, collect all 6 of them and you get a rare card. Don't let people steal those :|

Sigh, again, different iM@S worlds don't mix; The events and backstories don't add up.

In DS Chihaya is already an international superstar and we have other overly exaggerated stuff. Takane and Hibiki were always part of 765Pro.
DS relation to SP story, boxM@S and 2 broken.

In SP story mode we have Miki calling P "honey" from the start, already being very very clingy. Miki doesn't start out calling P that in either boxM@S or iM@S2 nor is she that close to P.
SP story mode relation to boxM@S and SP broken.

In iM@S2 765pro is in a dip because the idols were producing themselves, thus reaching a wall in their growth and popularity. There's where P comes in. In boxM@S and SP story we have a P and he was there 6 months-1 year earlier than the one in iM@S2 appeared. In DS it's hinted that the 765Pro idols have a person very close to them, that watched over their growth and supported their work from the back.
2 relation to box, SP and DS broken

Let's not even start about the various mangas and cds.

TL of main screen with horribad editing. Can't be bothered cleaning it up or doing more (sub) menus.

Didn't bother downloading that file but you didn't happen to link to the naming scheme charts per idol now did you?
I.e. Chihaya--> Yayoi= Takatsuki-san

Also the guest artist is the mangaka of a certain DS based manga revolving about a trap.

People still discussing timelines?

Every iM@S world and timeline is a seperate, standalone one.
None of any of the iM@S games, mangas, animes etc are canon and shouldn't be tried put together with any of the other ones.

Drama CD's are a grey area. Most of them are timeless and nonsensical but some of them are related to a game and might be part of a certain iM@S world.

Just in case people'll be whinning, arcadeM@S, boxM@S and free produce SP are technically the same game so don't try mentoning those.

You know, I never once saw anything about back members popping up in Defense. I assume they appear when defending, but if they do, I don't know if the game tells you who helped out, and how much they contributed.

Anyone have confirmation on this?

Seeing as how defending happens behind your back, there's no way to see who's joining in. If you go to your deck builder you can see your defense plus some extra stats if you have spare def though.

Also, on upgrading idols: I think I read on the wiki that each upgrade version of an idol has her own base stats, and a bonus is given based on the two idols you combine.
Bonus is 5% of each idol's stats normally. An extra 5% is awarded for Max Level! (Actually haven't gotten anyone to max level myself, so I can't confirm yet.)
So, if I'm combining Rin A (ATK 400), and Rin B (ATK 800, Max Level), Rin+ will get 20 + 80 = 100 on top of her base Lv. 1 stats.
Hearts will combine, so if Rin A was at 10 Hearts and Rin B at 20, then Rin+ will have 30 Hearts.

Hearts do get added and you get a tiny bit of extra stats as well if you have max affection before fusing. Don't know about the level part because I don't really like wasting money on non plus version of idols.

Sadly most of you missed the christmas event by a day.
The X-mas Road work line gave out relatively much money per stamina cost, the chance of getting good, higher cost cards was also rediculously high, giving you tons of lesson fodder and a good line up of idols who will improve your unit.

Selling idols is a waste of money imo because money is practically useless.

Random tips and comments

!!!Join a production!!! The stat points you get are extremely useful.

Pick up a 7 cost rare Iori for joining the iM@S CG circle. Not sure how long the promotion stays. It only takes a few clicks and you get a killer card. Not only does she have good stats, her power is useful for any attacking unit; Raise attack for all types, medium.

See those awesome rewards from promotions, events and beating stages?
You can't get those without a verified account. For silly gaijins like most of us it'd be pretty much impossible to verify, so ignore those.

Don't forget to pick up your daily free gatcha.

Maxing affection increases stats of an idol and it'll be marked on your album. You can obtain cards by maxing idols a lot of idols.

Early on it's a waste of points to invest in stamina, heck I still wonder what's the use of investing points in that later on.
Having more attack allows you to use higher cost cards., duh.
Having more def allows you to use higher costs cards in your defense team, also works as a bluff to scare potential opponents away if you have a high def.

The way you basically play a live battle is by beating up your opponent's defense team, you take their money and a costume piece.
The same happens for you so if you're collecting pieces, keep your defense up or people will steal your stuff a lot.

Only attack values are used when you attack, def astats is useless when attacking. Every point you currently have will be used.

A couple of def points will be used up when you're attacked.
Nb. You get money if you succesfully defended.

If you have tons of fodder cards, it's better leveling pure attackers and pure defenders instead of allrounders.
Sure, allrounders get more stats than pures but it'll weaken yor team in the long run. Imagine a decent cost attacker getting 80-100 atk points per level and an insignificant amount of def. The inverse for a decent defense idol.
An allrounder would get 50-75 for both stats

Higher quality images and multiple levels per idol.

Figuring out the url for most images was easy enough; they're stored on the server as ABCCCDD.jpg
A= Type; 1= Cute, 2= Cool, 3= Passion
B= Rarity; 0= normal, 1= normal+, 2= rare, 3= rare+, 4= s.rare, 5= s.rare+
C= Number, just keep adding one and hope you get an image
D= Level; 0= regular rarity, 1= + form

Sadly there are a lot of holes in the s.rare and s.rare+ part of the gallery because the rules changed for some cards for some reason; The s.rare Haruka for example is numbered 1400110 and the s.rare+ one 1500111 meaning it's ABCCCCD.jpg for those two. I couldn't find anything when adding or substracting the values nor did I find more s.rare(+) for Cool or Passion this way, but the cards should (probably) exist but are numbered differently.

Also couldn't find the rare version of Aihara Yukino this way.

Note. Event special versions of idols are placed at the end of a rarity set instead of next to the actual idol.
