Mature grade school student Arisu Tachibana is an aspiring idol who receives an invitation from her company president to participate in the Third Entertainment Section—a new idol project. Arisu and eight other young girls soon meet their producer before beginning idol-related activities.

To the girls' surprise, their producer appears to be a childlike adult and nothing like what they had imagined. The producer, who is taking on the position for the first time, also had no idea that he would be meeting a group of short, young idols. The awkward situation leaves Arisu disappointed, and she wishes for a producer change.

However, the producer, with his genuine love for idols and his desire to see them shine, will not let this opportunity pass and expresses that he is serious about working with the girls. Thankfully, the young idols accept the producer after seeing his unwavering passion for idols, serving as the start of their journey to the stage of dreams.

Idolmaster is a goddamned masterpiece and you can see it right from the very start. As someone who up to this point has been completely oblivious to the franchise and gotten into it on a whim, I can tell you that this show converted me into a fan. As episode 1 opens, the sheer creativity of the framing and cinematic angles shows the team behind this are clearly passionate on their craft. I did not expect a Slice of Life to wow me visually, but U149 exceeds my expectations episode after episode, making each week an event I truly look forward to.

Indeed, even without any ...

In a season so clearly divided between great anime and complete garbage, The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls: U149 stands out as the definition of mid.

This anime does feel like a bit of a yikes-burger, especially when one of the girls comments on wanting to look "sexy" during a photoshoot, but the show leans towards a wholesome vibe even if it feels a bit forced. I've read comments online by fans suggesting that ...

The IdolM@ster series needs no introduction...if you live in Japan. Basically, for the uninitiated, it's a series of video games where you raise and train idols to become famous. It's now a multimedia franchise that continues to rake in money to this very day. If you want for information on the franchise as a whole, I recommend the Project Im@s wiki, as it pretty much has everything you could ever need, from game info to translations of all the songs and their lyrics. I haven't seen any of the anime that were made for it...except for this one, The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls U149, which was ...
