I don't think so. The only thing that seems to be on a timer are the weekly(?) picture unlocks that give you new pictures of the girls to use on the home screen.

I hope we haven't forgotten the next wave of CINDERELLA M@STER CDs? 21-25 is out, and it's hit and miss as usual. Some good, some not as much.

Always always always love the album art though.

Spoiler for Cinderella-Singles-to-date:

Just downloaded the iM@S Channel. My German isn't that good, so I have no idea what I'm navigating through; but I still love it.

Ok, here's a short walkthrough:

On the main iM@S Channel menu the icons are, left to right:
  • Shiny @ TV
  • Gravure 4 U
  • Gallery (pictures unlock over time as long as you login regularly. New pictures seem to show up on a biweekly basis apparently)
  • News
  • ??? but related to the upcoming iDOLM@STER All for one game
  • ???

When you go into the Shiny @ TV or Gravure 4 U menus you get two options: Open game, View DLC.

In adition to that the Start button opens the im@s homepage on the PS3 browser and the triangle changes the idol that greats you every time you open the app (unlocking pictures unlocks them in bikinis as well, you use the Square button to change between bikini and regular clothes).

That about covers it for the main menu.

The Shiny @ TV game is pretty self explanatory: you have stage mode where you can freely play any song (you have to clear them once on debut/regular to unlock pro and the special version of the video to use in VTR Room mode). Clear pro to unlock the master dificulty.

The VTR Room mode, as you might have guessed, allows you to view the songs without playing and set up playlists of videos to watch in one go.

Shiny @ TV is the "story mode". Each of the DLC packs brings a TV Show by one of the girls split into 4 levels (debut, regular, pro, master) with 5+1 challenges each. Clearing 3 challenges unlocks you the next level, clearing the 5 challenges unlocks the 6th and final one with a special gravure 4 u based video. The 5th challenge is always a "guest challenge" where you need to outscore a girl from Million Live. Clearing that will give you a "Name Card" and some hearts (I have no idea what the hearts are used for in the Shiny @ TV version though). Clearing a complete level gives you a special video message from the girl in question.

Backstage is also rather important. As soon as you open the menu the first option allows you to choose a "power up" that might help you get through the songs. You seem to unlock these doing the Shiny @ TV levels so I guess they are behind a paywall as well.

If you want to know what they do you can get a translation for the PSP game here: Shiny Festa Items. I personally can't live without the Target Supporter item. The game just becomes brutal with the timings at high levels

As for Record it just gives you game stats (like play time, how many songs you got full combo in, etc).

When it comes to the Gravure 4 U mode I can't really help you there. I haven't touched it yet and my Japanese isn't anywhere near good enough to try and figure out what's going on

For more information check out the imas wiki on Shiny TV including the list of songs in each 1500 yen (approximately 15 USD/11EUR) DLC pack.

EDIT: btw the free Arcadia song they threw in as a bonus for those who bought the six packs is kind of lame. It only has one version of the song done with a montage of clips from the tv show. To be fair it is from some of the most awesome scenes in the show: the movie trailers with Mecha-Chihaya, Samurai-Chihaya, et all. :P

Another idol who shares her Japanese voice with an Idolm@ster regular (this time, Iori) will be heading to the PS Vita next year:

Spoiler for P4D:


It would be interesting if yet another IM@S alum ended up voicing the rival character.

Thanks for sharing. The song may not be new, but it's great seeing the Cinderella cast get their own little animation.

CG has been around longer than Million Live, which means they've been well known for longer.
