THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well that was cute. They introduced more girls and it looks like Rin is getting used to her life now. The photo shoot was cute as well and I think they are having a lot of fun.

I'm proud of what Producer-san is doing now. He's assembled quite a lot of talent this episode. Got good hopes for these rising superstars. The ED song is alright.

The main 14 have been assembled

Anzu is still not likable, the sleepyhead needs to put a lot more pep in her step and pride in her stride (or basically get some motivation, despite being a NEET she's an idol and needs to act like one). It's embarrassing, I also wouldn't mind a decent song from her as she even failed to do that (she failed to even give it a meaningful name).

I have the feeling Anya will be better in the anime, she definitely sings better than Rin for starters.

Miku with no cat ears and tail is disappointing and needs rectification now.

Chieri needs a big warm hug, Kanako too.

Chihiro is super youthful looking and adorable, I want to hug her.

The cameo with Sae and Chie were nice,A-1 has finally delivered a top 5 and 10 favorite of nmine as the supporting cast and aren't just relegated to a magazine cover. Nana is still funny with her alien shtick. Hopefully Mika's more shy side will be revealed in the anime if she shows up again.

Biggest infodump this season. Not sure how well 14 semi-main characters can be handled.
That goth-loli is probably the most blatant (and only) Aikatsu ripoff I've ever seen. Cute episode, though.

Sadly for you, Ranko appeared in 2011 (the start of the CG game) and Aikatsu started in 2012.
So.... Yurika IS the Ranko ripoff.
But hey, both are great!

Good episode!! Was really nice to see that their chosen pics in the anime were their normal card in the game <3
Op is really well animated, wish I saw Airi though! (And not only her twintails ;.;)
Hope the ending will all be different each episode (great chance for that!)
Want to see more Minamiiiiii *-*

Oh, I see. Wikipedia listed Aikatsu as 2011, but I guess that was wrong. Fair enough, then.

I checked again and the Aikatsu game came out in October 2011, so I guess it was 1 month before CG. I don't know if Yurika was there at the start of the game though.
Anyway who cares, Aoi best gi-... I mean, both Ranko and Yurika are great!

Having fun in the company grounds and meeting rest of the members, there really are diverse!

Already with a photo shoot and it was nice the three being relaxed afterwards. A concert already too, though the number seems a bit odd. Looking forward to the coming choreography and songs!

Pretty good episode. So many girls and names to remember again with this new iDOLM@STER.

Love Anzu purely on her shirt. Hopefully she gets a good episode revolving around her later on.

Can't wait for the next episode!

From now on I'm going to call Anzu as immersion breaking machine for me. Come on, there is no way she can stay in this group as a idol, I know The Idolm@ster is not exactly a realistic imagination of the lives of real life idols, but loli + neet? That's just too far when almost every other idols have rather believable personality and traits.

I kind of wish J.K. Simmons would be P right now after the movie Whiplash, I might enjoy the show a lot more if he was constantly yelling at the idols and occasionally throwing stuff at them. I'm so evil.

Anzuchang is here, finally. And Kiririn is almost as tall as producer. I like her interacting with Anzu. Kanako seemed more fat than usual, not surprise there. Overall, all girls are super interesting. What I didn't like was the ending it seemed shady. I guess Mika is up to something. I hope she will not turn out to be evil final boss. No bully my idorus pls.

Rank reminds me of Yukari from Aikatsu.

Out of all the 14 idols, Rin and Uzuki is the most interesting.

She's just too lazy for the idol business, she needs to be more like Anna Mochizuki. I like my idols to be lively and try their hardest regardless of obstacles or personality.

Damn, IDK if I can remember all the characters in here on the Cinderella Project, but guess I have to start memorizing them in later episodes. Well I think I knew a couple of them, but still have to get it through my head.

I love the start and forming the project already. Can't wait to see them in the concert :D.

A few of the others will also be shown to be less hyper once they get sufficient screen time - that's a common trait in the "cool" category.

And Miku minus ears and tail, as another said, is a travesty. At least she ended most (but not all!) of her sentences properly. +1 For Miho's interview. +1 for the Kaede display. And is that Shizuku('s oppai) I spy deep in the background at 9:50? Loving all the cameos and references.

Mio and Uzuki continue to be a bit too upbeat though. More focus on some of the other girls will be very good.

A lot of new characters introduced here, no way I'll remember them all by name.
Whatever Anzu did with her 2 lines of dialogue sure has made a few people here upset.

That's the hearsay I've heard as well.

I really hope they don't expect us to remember all of those names after an info-dump that enormous. Honda has barely even been introduced properly.

I'm not sure what to think of the main trio suddenly being snatched up as backup dancers. Couldn't that potentially harm their careers in the long run? It would be easy to get stuck in a supporting role and never get a chance to shine, like I assume the other girls will get a chance to. It's too bad Producer didn't get to voice his thoughts. He seemed hesitant to let them go.

Decent episode overall.

Done on introducing some characters and now they are complete maybe it need more episode before I start liking it. Hope it can meet up my expectation since the original one is very good.
