As you all may or may not know, this show is based on an arcade game by Sega that incorporates physical trading cards. However, besides giving players trading cards for dressing up (or rather "Princess Changing" as the both the game and the show call it) the three girls in the game, there is also a rhythm game segment where they sing various songs. Besides "Little Princess" (which is also used as this show's theme song), the game features five other songs:

-Happy Go Lucky
-Prospect
-Usagi no Dance ("The Rabbit Dance"; a traditional Japanese nursery rhyme)
-Moonlight Serenade
-Hoshi no Curtain Call ("Curtain Call of the Stars")

Now, in the show, whenever the girls transform into Lilpri, the only song we ever see (and hear) them perform is the theme song, whereas in the game they also sing the other songs I mentioned. This has been going on for 11 episodes now, and it gets kind of tedious hearing the same song over and over. Now, I personally won't ask for the ending theme since it's performed by S/Mileage as themselves (i.e., and not as "Lilpri"), but I would like to see this show feature at least these five other songs at some point. IMHO, it's silly to portray them as "one hit wonders" in the show, whereas in the game they have five other "hits". In any case, I think that if "TV Tokyo, Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions, and TMS Entertainment" want to keep some people watching the show, they're going to need to have them sing other songs then just the opening, or people are going to get bored. Personally, I'll keep watching no matter what, since the show is still interesting if nothing else, but still. However, what do all of you think?

Incidentally, I should mention the "S/Mileage as Lilpri" version of "Little Princess" is a cover version created just for the show. The version heard in the game is sung by a different group of people.

The people that sing in the game are different from the anime. And if you mean game like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2myAjS61XM (fast foward to 1:51 to hear them sing), then yes they aren't the original voices. S/mileage (or Lilpri) just provide the voices for the show as well as "covers" of the song.

IMO, it does get boring. But if you look at Kirarin☆Revolution, they use the same song for about 26 (more or less) episodes until the new song preview gets released. Which also might happen with this anime.

Unfortuntally, we're going to have to wait since Lilpri just released their first single about 4 days ago.

Single Tracklist for those who are curious~:

Apparently around episodes 25-26 Li'lPri will be getting a new song. It's gonna be called "Idolulu", and seeing the list of songs in the game provided by RayLRhodes, it'll be all-new. ;)

I don't know, we're already in episode 24 so far. I think it'll last around 50-52 episodes.

Idolulu? I haven't seen that one. I've seen until ep 29(since that's the last one that got out) and I saw so far the songs are: Lilpri, Happy go Lucky and Prospect.

Idolulu could be the name of Lilpri's next new song. Otherwise, its the opening song.
