Idolm@ster SideM, a spin-off of the idol franchise with male characters, starring in a Cinderella Girls style Mobage social game, tried to launch in March 2014, but that didn't go well and after it couldn't scale to the demand, it was soon taken offline for extended maintenance. It then got going in July 2014, so the game is now celebrating its first anniversary. More after the jump.
