    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 ...

    meh okay but not what I'm looking for
    I think that this is a great anime but it lacks one thing! Dudes, if they want more people to be interested add men. Beside the fact that this is just a stereo type of all idols and there jobs I think this anime has some life maybe the girls can find a guy and boom you got a harem. Well i guess that would take all the fun out of it but still it doesn't make sense to fill a show with all girls I ...

    Anime with huge cast
    When I'm watching anime I can be really picky. It has to have a variety of characters. These Characters are all magnificent. Theres a whole bunch of characters you can relate to. I would highly recommend this for people who are looking for humor, characters to relate to, with good music.The only problem I have with this anime is it has a slow pace to it.

  • Just ignore the weak characters
    -----When reading the synopsis and viewing the picture for this show it leaves an implication that it isn’t trying to be anything ambitious and merely be another cash-in on the moé franchise of the anime industry. The aim to make the viewer feel adoration toward its characters is not the problem in and of itself so much as the sheer volume of the cast creating issues with screen time. And with the ...

    GLORIOUS!! another on the list of Faves.
    The person who told me about this series did NOT do it justice. I'll deal with him later, though, LOL.

    This has a wonder story. Though the plot is simple, it has TONS more backing it.

    12 girls strive to become idols. With a new manager, and a LOOONG road ahead of them., they face rejection, heart break (on AND off set), drama, but also have fun along the way.

    Deffinitely a good watch for ...

    Going into my re-watch list.
    Overall: I extremely enjoyed this anime and I am really getting into all of the actual singers and even have myself an idolm@ster playlist, cellphone background, and desktop wallpapers. I'm addicted to these girls they are so much fun and talented.

    Storyline: The storyline, while still good, was extremely predictable. There wasn't a single thing I didn't see coming and nothing truly surprised ...

    Very very good, with a few average episodes
    So... the first episode is not that great. In fact, after I watched the first episode I decided to not watch anymore of this anime! And... that was a mistake, a big one! A week or so ago I decided to give it another try. I watched the first episode again, and again I wasn't very impressed. But I chose to keep on watching. The second episode was quite better though it still wasn't tops. See, it's ...

    Top of the Charts!!!
    The first time I heard of this anime was last year 2011 when it was being simulcasted by CR. When I read the basic premise "Idol group trying to be the best in Japan", I'll be honest, I wasn't interested. But since the artwork seemed good enough, I put it in my to watch list. I've only recently come back and started watching this and finished last week.
    I'll have to say, this has been ...
