    Brutally Honest: Biased & Unbiased (First 4 episodes)
    Only four episodes has aired in Japan at the time of this writing so take this with a grain of salt.

    My unbiased impression - had I not been a huge fan of this franchise - is that this series is moving a bit slow. Plot wise, there is nothing engaging or motivating. Okay, I'll be blunt-- it's a bit dull and dry. It's strength, at least for now, are the huge cast (14 to be exact-- counting ...

  • It Was Okay But Slow
    I felt like this anime moved at a snail's pace! In the idolm@ster every member got her own special episode which was good in one sense but also a bit boring for me. Especially since some characters had generic episodes while others had some real drama going on like Chihaya and her tragic past. Basically I liked all the quirky and crazy side characters (twins, Iori, Azusa, Hibiki) but found the ...

  • Great series, Great cast, Great everything
    I started Idolm@ster about a week or so ago and couldn't put it down, it had been recommended to me before but I never really gave it much thought until i saw that crunchyroll had it available, needless to say i fell in love with it and the amazing cast/songs that is has. Every character is unique and have some sort of backstory to go with.(Especially Chihaya) I'd really like to see another season ...

    Wow, this is not harem
    As you can see, there are only few male character, the female characters easily outnumbers the males. Sounds familiar right? You probably be thinking, this is going to be harem. You won't be able to find anything deep like Evangelion did, something that makes you think. Yeah, this anime was a straight up fast food, eat it and proceed what you were doing before. But here is the inevitable part ...

  • Fun and Light Hearted, Hard to Hate!
    The Idolm@ster is an interesting mess of an anime. And, by mess, I mean a big jumbled pile of cuteness, moe and fun. I find myself surprised that I enjoyed this series so much, but that's probably due to the fact that I've been watching alot of serious anime at the moment. Sometimes it's nice to sit down and watch something that's upbeat and fun. But, with that said, the series does have it's own ...

  • A Lovable Series ~ !
    After watching the first episode, I wanted to quit watching right then and there. However, I pushed through and decided to watch the second episode. After that, I started to fall in love with the series.

    The thing is, that there are real-life experiences within this anime. Everyone is different and lovable in their own way, and have grown to become better friends, people, and idols. ...

  • An Anime Filled With Idols , Problems & Friendship
    I have only seen six episodes of this anime but , I ♥ this anime so far because I have seen the all characters try their best to make it as a idol but , the other reason is that even when a person like Iori , Yayo , Chihaya , Yukiho or Hibiki has a problem or situation , someone is always there to help them through it all . And another reason is because they all enjoy each other company and ...

  • Rewatchable enjoyment
    This show gives an enjoyable face to what was already a strong multimedia franchise. I'm watching it all over again, months after it originally appeared, and enjoying it all over again. The anime fills out the back-story that those of us who didn't play the Japanese games can't directly appreciate. I like anime idols performances, in general, but this has made me like Idolmaster in particular.
