I do feel as though the ending was a bit underwhelming. It was kinda nice to hear that quote from Mishiro, though. "I just thought it'd be nice to come out of the palace to look at the stars tonight." I also really enjoyed the choreography, but found the random cut-outs to the roof of the stadium with lights to be disappointing.
With that said, I much prefer S1 because it felt a lot more fun. S2 had some good episodes, but the main conflict between mishiro and takeP i didn't really enjoy.

Certainly was the
Sentences were only half
And not to mention,
Watch it legally instead of pirating and you won't experience any problems.
I'd gladly do that if there actually WAS A LEGAL WAY TO DO IT. But no, I'm not from America, nor do I own an American credit card, and using a US-based service that is region-blocking me by circumventing it with VPNs is not exactly legal either. So unless Crunchyroll, Funimation or whoever actually provides a service where I can watch ALL the shows I want to watch, well, it's still down to fansubs and occasionally YouTube.
But thanks for playing the moral apostle, I certainly feel soooo bad now.

Unbelievably how bad this was... never expected this anime to make me hate the characters so much that i almost stopped watching this to the end.
Rin--->Biggest bitch of the bunch practicaly betraying her group to go with the antigonist plans SOME EGOISTICAL BITCH!
Mio--> second to her just running away instead of trying to keep Newgen together you are the leader FFS
Uzuki--> one dimensional yes but she seriously didnt deserve what those two did to her
And at the end there was no acceptable conclusion why these three made up anyway.....

Underwhelming. I think I can see how it tried to be like the original, but failed. Towards the end of the show it missed what made the original show good (at least for me): a heart-warming, soft-but-clear character and relationship development. Watching Haruka's and Chihaya's arcs again made me see the difference in impact each of them gives, compared to Uzuki's arc which is good, but not as much.
Also, while there may seem to be a bond as a whole group or as a unit, but if you look at their interactions carefully you'll see the distance between them, compared to those of 765PRO. I don't know if it's just me but it's quite a large distance in my point of view. It kinda like "the idols and their individual maturity and work improvement", not "the idols and their group development" kinda show that the original is.
At the show's final, I was wondering, is this a happy ending? This question is something that does not need to be asked if you're satisfied with its conclusion.
Still, the drama build-up at the beginning was good and I like how the antagonist isn't really an antagonist like in the original. Before the outside-job arc, the story was pretty great, even better than the original. But the problem is the part that's supposed to strike the impact to the viewers the most, is somewhat lacking, as mentioned above.
I want to separate my rating to two parts for the original: 7/10 for the pre-Triad part, and 5.5/10 post-Triad part..

It'a good show. When i have been watching the original Idolmaster, I really do want more Idolmaster. But, I felt pretty unsatisfied when I finished the final episode since i have too much expectations to this series.
It's very difficult not to compare the original Idolmaster and the Idolmaster Cinderella Girls. Personally, I prefer the original Idolmaster series or other idol anime such as Love Live than Idolmaster Cinderella Girls. The reason is I'm pretty satisfied to see a strong relationship between the characters. But i got nothing for this series when i finished the final episode.
The difference between Idolmaster and Idolmaster Cinderella Girls is the idols divided into several units in the first season. So the story becomes focused on the unit. I think that's good because it makes the story to be balanced with a lot of main characters. And the second season becomes better with a lot of drama when Mishima came and ruined the situation.
I really love when every idol unit faces a problem that befell them. I can feel emotionally more intense and it's build a feeling about strong relationship between them. I also love the final arc about New Generations unit. But, what the hell with the conclution? Rin joined Triad Primus but she is still part of New Generation with a selfish reason that she felt something when singing with Triad Primus member?
Yeah, i admit it, it's a good drama but I dont know, It's like..."killed" my feelings about strong relationship that built on the previous episode by other idol units. When i finished the final episode, i relized, "Aaah, It's just a relationship between colleagues only."
I agree with @me-me-me
- This last episode confirmed for me what the writers thought the relationship of the characters are: friendly colleagues, but colleagues nonetheless. What seals the deal is how each of the 14 main characters branched out of their subgroups, showing that the group wasn't supposed to be a coherent group, but more of an avenue of common interests, i.e. what AKB48 and other idol groups seem to be in real life.

I watched CG animu blindy last year, but now after I played Starlight Stage and knowing most of the idols, I decided to rewatch it again and..
damn, it becomes 3x more enjoyable than before
I began to paying attention at the background, like the idols I used to think they're not important
it feels good when you alrd familiar with the idols & see them animated
the only problem with Cinderella Girls animu compared to the 765pro Im@s is that
CG have wayyyy so many idols, it's like 65(voiced) idols, while 765pro only 13idols(didnt count the movie one)
you can't enjoy it 100% if you not familiar with CG idols(didn't play the game), like, you kinda think that they're just background chara, even tho each of them have different charm
you can enjoy this animu adaptation the most if you alrd familiar of the idols from the game
It's time for me to learn Japanese then lol
