Ok, thank you for telling me that. I didn't realize Ritsuko became a producer by IM@S 2.

I guess, in a way, Xenoglossia ruined the series for me then. I'll probably watch this to "correct" my views of the girls (and for the twins lol). The various Youtube videos did make me interested in the game and wished it was released in the US. My lack of understanding a good chunk of the Japanese language prevents me from playing it. ><

Yes, definitely agree we need a higher resolution of that picture above.

I really liked how they approached the first episode, the way it was done was a nice touch though I'm interested in how it will handle itself from now on. Don't really know much about the franchise (I did watch a few episodes of Xenoglossia back in the day and found it pretty poor..) but I liked what I saw. Listening to a lot of random Idolmaster songs on youtube now... Also are we expecting this to be one cour or two?

I really love the first episode!

Forget the mecha spinoff anime Xenoglossia cause the new Idolmaster anime looks much better!

My exposition to the Idolm@ster franchise is limited to nicovideo and pictures from pixiv. But I know for sure I like three characters, Miki Hoshii, Azusa Miura and Takane Shijou.

However after watching this episode, I'll add Chihaya. It must be because of her voice actress (Kurisu).

That was a watchable episode, I was afraid to be turned off but I have stuck around and enjoyed it. The POV treatment was rather a nice idea but I am aware they may not keep it through the whole series.

So, I'll keep it going for three more episodes and decide to keep or drop.

I really enjoyed the first episode for some reason. It just had a fun atmosphere and I wasn't really bothered by anything during the episode.

Looking forward to more.

It'd make sense that this would be a two cour series. What with there being a primary cast this large.

It was a nice episode, but I'd be lying if I say I wasn't disappointed. It feels more IM@S than Xenoglossia, but less than the L4U OVA. It's almost like an outsider took creative control of the anime and is just showcasing the character's superficial aspects. Though when we all heard there would be no The Producer, many feared the character-d would get shot up pretty badly.

Kudos to the first scene with Makoto. At first I was all, "A man?!" but then I was like gg A-1.

Well to be fair, a reason for all that might be because they were trying to at least get some minor introductions to all of the cast. That doesn't give them all that much time to work with.

I enjoyed the documentary format. I think if they were going to do the whole series in kind of a sub-Spinal Tap format I'd definitely enjoy it more! I suspect this is not the case, though.

I like the way they did the first episode. The documentary style was a neat touch and it did a good job of introducing all the girls. I think I'll be following this.

When I first heard about Idolm@aster it was from Ace Combat 6, there was a multiplayer addon which gave certain skins to some of the planes and made the smoke colorful, alot of players were actually confused and a bit mad on how "OP" it was. But it peaked my interest and looked up some of the games, it looked great and now seeing it as an anime thats not about robots singers is what's gonna keep me from missing Gosick! I'm just curious what kind of producer will the anime go for (sweet and considerate or perverted etc.)

Is the entire anime going to be just like the first episode? Or is this weird silent narration style going to continue throughout?

If it is, I'm gonna save myself some time and just drop it now. I kid you not when I say that I fell asleep while watching it.

If it's going to be different, please tell me.... I'll watch the second episode and give it another chance, because as it is currently, there's no way in hell I can watch an entire season like this.
