I liked how they started off things with the interview style introduction of the characters. I like the premise and think it will be quite interesting as the girls are almost every genre you can have in harems. I thought it was pretty obvious who the cameraman would be once they said they had hired a new producer.

So let everyone else know what you think of the show.

I like the way they presented the introduction arc and this anime rely more on character depth; the more you know the girl the more you want to root for her.

I hated the first person approach. It was really boring. 2nd episode seems normal though, I'll watch it. Is KyoAni handling this?

Actually it's through A-1 Pictures which have done a couple series I really like like AnoHana, Blue Exorcist, and Working!!.

Well it doesn't really matter what we think of it, or what we think of other shows this season... Since this'll sell bucket loads more than anything else whether we like it or not.

That said, I still think this is getting far too much hate, I don't think I've ever seen such a large cast introduced so well in a short period of time, as well as the fact that that it kept in line with the idol agency setting. Most of the characters are alright (about 3 can probably die in a fire for all I care), and the animation quality kinda shows that money is being poured in left right and centre.

The character designs are pretty faithful to the original game, and look somewhat similar to those in other A-1 pictures Kannagi, Sora no woto and Working!!,
But what I initially thought when I saw them was Gurren Lagann.... (Is that wierd?)

Turns out, no. Nishigori Atsushi Who worked on the character design and Is co-directing the series was a character designer for Gurren Lagann and more recently Panty & Stocking. He's also worked on the Evangelion Rebuilds and FLCL as well as other GAINAXY projects. There is also a large amount of other Gainax veterans working on this - and judging by the fact that the first episode revealed the face of the faceless producer in the games, this could be interesting...

They've also announced that the story will be following a mesh of all the games into one show, but they've got two cours to attempt this so there's no problem there, the problem is that iDOLM@STER 2 in particular has some pretty mean (DEEPer than you think) backstory. I won't jump to the conclusion and call this a HUGE TROLLFEST, but i'm going to say that if you're thinking "oh look something like K-On Boooooooring" then chances are you're going to have to eat those words eventually.

It's going to sell amazingly whether any of us like it or not - might aswell see what it's got to offer.

Idolmaster has the biggest budget of the season, and a lot of experienced people working on it. Its also based on any incredibly popular franchise as anyone who looks at h-doujins most likely knows.

Its going to be the next K-On, I think. It should sell 30-35k at least.

The show has - Hell I don't know, I watch it after Penguindrum now and the animation is godly and I don't have to stress my brain too much while watching it.

The only game of this series I played is IdolM@ster 2 on PS3. The game is a simple management game in which you decide as producer in what the idols will do. Yes, this is boring, especially since I cannot read my responses. I have difficulty reading Kanji. But you need to do this to unlock other songs and earn money to purchase costumes for S4Y (Stage for You).

In S4Y you can mix and match what girls will sing, and what stage to perform, and costumes to wear. S4U is what I consider the fun part. I love all the songs.

As far as the anime goes, it is alright. I just use the anime as a backgound to know the personality of all the girls.

Only 1 more episode to air. 24 was really good. Better than Chihaya's arc, imo.
