THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well, that was amusing, especially involving Ranko. It's funny how she responds to Producer-san with her signature laughs and lines. It looks like has some insight of her though as one of the more mature members of the idols.

Now I'm a bit hungry for some steak
I'm also somewhat interested in that book she was holding as it has some of her neat ideas.

Whoa, actual character development? Really?! I was ready to give up hope, but it looks like Cinderella Girls managed to pick itself back up. Definitely my favourite episode thusfar, but it's a shame it took me this long to care so deeply about one of the characters.

What a nice ending with Rosenburg Engel, another CD is going to be announced for purchase soon like with Memories as it's not in her discography unlike with Mika's.

Ranko is very easily embarrassed like close to Koume-tier especially when her chunni shtick weakens understandable since that book is not just filled with drawings but with chunni things and other personal thoughts in it that may or may not need to come out.

This anime may rise from the ashes after all, this episode was more enjoyable than many of the others.

Edit: It just got announced

Producer-san gets cuter and nicer with every episode ^^
I like how he cares about the girls and tries everything to help them. The conversation between the two was really nice. And the song was greatl; I love metal and anime, so I'm quite satisfied wth that :D

Aaahh, I like these types of episodes much better than the previous situation. :D Ranko making her CD debut. ^^ Her chuuni is so strong, I love it~ She doesn't like horror stuff. x3

Producer-san is again being the best girl caring and understanding Producer that he is, And the Fallen Angel theme fits Ranko real nicely. That ED song was great!

Can't wait to see which girl/s will make their debut next!

I just found it hilarious that Producer-san had notes in his book to translate what Ranko was saying.

Also, what is this? We have character development for someone outside the "main three"? It's a miracle.

A really fun episode indeed with Ranko getting her CD debut.

Ranko's roundabout way of talking and Producer-san trying to decipher it.

It was quite entertaining seeing how Ranko wanted to say Producer-san and how normally the other words came out then too not so normal ones. Able to convey her feelings on how she wants her music to be to Producer-san was great.

Seeing her CD like that, really need more episodes like these with a focus on one character!

Hooray for Ranran's debut. She's actually pretty cute in her own way. I really liked how the producer had a notebook to translate whatever she said, lmao.

Anzu has such a shit eating grin avoiding Kirari. I swear. Never gets old.

I am bouncing that around in my head. I couldn't stop laughing at that image of the two of them sitting by the fountain with him holding her umbrella...such a mis-matched pair would be perfect :D

I do believe this is a first. I've never met an anime character that talked to her pet mushrooms...

So, we start with Mio pampering Anya. My opinion of Mio is improving slightly. Anya's reactions were just so wonderful. I almost thought the episode could only go downhill from there.

Ranko being the focus allows for good and bad. Good in that she's a better than average target for this type of episode. Bad because, well, her antics can get old rather quickly. Still, with that in mind, they handled it well enough.

The episode was, however, predictable. Straightforward and obvious even with the cameos and humor. I saw the Koume and Shoko cameos coming as soon as the horror theme was introduced for Ranko, and it should have been patently obvious that someone would understand her perfectly. That's just too obvious to pass up.


Overall, a good episode.

Loved ranko even before this show but I still can't get over how ridiculously thick they made her eyebrows. It is actually ridiculous if you compare it with her card artworks.

Poor Ranko, she's completely indecipherable.
She never did come off as being as scary as she'd like to let on.
She's no different than Ruri or Kobato except she's she jumpy that she never drops character.
Though apparently the loli speaks fluent Ranko.
"Oh...you're going to be home late again tonight because of work."

Nice to see Koume and Shoko, some new girls to the anime.
I'm going to have to work on the latter's name lest I slip and call her Shroom-chan.
Koume I know only because she's apparently popular with /a/...for some reason.
I go by many names, some call me Hoshimaru, others call me Jiro or Aosou-Kun.
I believe myself a force for good, a papercrafter by trade, and one who seeks love and beauty animesque.

Such heartwarming episode. This is how you do a single-character focused episode. Melodrama is not necessary.

Like it isn't obvious that we're shipping Producer X Whole main cast as the episodes move along. Ranko is the focus this time around eh. She's plenty cute here.
I wonder who's next. I hope it's Rika, Minami and Miku next (in that order!)

YES !!! My wish finally come true(about focusing on other characters).

after wait for 2 weeks,this truly worth for it.

Overall, I really enjoy this episode from beginning till the end.
Very refreshing after 7 episodes earlier.
Ranko was Cute and sweet,while I LoL at the Producer when he try not to be too polite and have a notebook to understand what Ranko saying,also when he nicknamed P-chan by Miku,truly best character indeed.
Miria being troll at the end,even make P-chan facepalm in his own style.

Well time for wait for the next episode,but i wonder,will it feature either Kanako or Anzu since the preview card says about "Sweet" or something?
well the actual preview will out in 2 or 3 days anyway,let's just see.

Excellent and entertaining episode! I laugh so much on this episode XD
Ranko also really cute and funny at the same time, really like her so much.
We also learn that ranko actually scared of horror genre while being Gothic.
Overall great episode, one of the best episode to date.
5/5

It would be a good way to liven up the place. I want that hamburger plush too.

A sticker? Lol.

Congratz Ranko. I'm guessing the PV idea was too scary, for me too. Actually I don't know.

AHHHH ANASTASIA IS SO ADORABLE!

Producer is trying his best.

Lol funny cycle.

Activate Mommy Rin.

Flowers maybe? "Pure" things in general? Ha, I'm totally off.

Nice song.

Ranko is slowly getting rid of the bad taste Rikka left in Chuunibyou. Only iDOLM@STER can do something so impossible.

Also, I'm starting to like Anya more and more. She's just so fuckin precious.

Really? All I could think of in this episode was Rikka finally getting her debut and ditching Yuta for the manly producer. It's not like they were trying really hard to differentiate Rikka and Ranran considering they went out of their way to choose the same seiyuu.

The plot moves forward and finally made a dash down a bit by the three protagonists, going to investigate further, featuring the character of Ranran.
Not bad storytelling that probe the difficulty that there is in relating to a soul so sensitive as you.
Ultimately, this show is based more on the playful moments and is ill-suited to melodrama.
The contribution of P-san is not bad, but the real strength of the story is to show the spirit of will that put all the girls in their own way.
Drawings in the media, entertainment enough.
Overall it's nice watching the episode.

An actual good episode. Not gonna lie. A breath of fresh air after all the recent...drama.

I just came to the conclusion that Anastasia is best girl. She's so damn cute and her seiyuu is wonderful, especially when she speaks Russian and rolls her Rs.

Well, she has the same singing role as Ami/Mami/Yayoi. Sing happy/silly songs with not much focus on the actual singing.

Heck her theme song is called "Anzu no Uta" (Anzu's song) and is mainly about Anzu complaining about doing work.

yehey! Ranko! I really like her and I'm glad to watch an episode involving her. It's amusing how she can't talk to P-chan, I mean producer-san the concept she likes for her debut and lol.

Chuunibyou gothic lolita queen Uchida Maaya strikes again on this episode.
Ranko afraid of Horror but is a gothic lolita is a bit strange.
LOLed and the end because someone could really understand Ranko (I think its Miria Akagi) and producer said "you could've told us sooner"...hahah!

Focusing on anyone but the main 3 feels like filler, but this was one of the best episodes so far, very silly, made me smile. Ranko stole the show. I liked her song too.

Because that's what makes Idolmaster Great. The original Idolmaster was also mostly episodic and focused on a different girl every other episode, the only plot it got was it's rivalry with Jupiter.

Yessss, best episode yet! Ranko is easily my favorite character so far, her cryptic fantasy persona is hilarious especially with the gap between that and her real personality. This was definitely in the spirit of the iM@S that I love. That ending was gold, Miria will now be their translator of the darkness!

Pro-Pro-Producer is changing bit by bit as well and that's always welcome. "Do you like Salisbury steak? So do I."

I love the fact that Producer-san has a Ranko translator in his handy-dandy notebook.

And it took this episode to confirm it, but Ranko is definitely within my top five right now.. Hopefully as the episodes pass, I can solidify the others...

I also feel kind of mean for being amused by Producer-san's awkward speaking.

And when mushroom girl popped up, I instantaneously voiced out 'The fuck?' by accident... I guess it was just that strange of a sight to me...
