THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A big performance and thank you from the male idol group for the finale. Pretty predictable but fitting. It seems they have a huge fanbase now since their premiere and it's probably going to grow more and more.

Eh, the show was okay but I couldn't get invested into most of the characters. Wish this was 2-cour.

It was a bit fan service'y. I kinda liked this series more than I thought I would because it had some nice little short arcs for the characters (most of them anyway) in addition to the slice of life/comedy stuff. But those were all wrapped up by the end, so it mostly just felt like an episode of fan service and reiterating all the character motivations and stuff from before.

But it wasn't terrible. Didn't really "ruin" the series for me and I still had a nice time with it.

I'm kind of mad that this series completely lacked performances for an idol show. But it delivered on the finale. And it actually looked nice compared to CGI performances from other shows.. cough cough.

Don't worry! Of course they'll be a second season of SideM in 2018 or 2019 with the new idols that President Saito and KaitoP scouted them to join 315Pro , especially Saki-kun and Ryo-kun that will definitely join the 315 Production! I'm sure of it!

Finale was okay. Not much happened outside of just a whole lot of concerting. Would've liked 26 episodes since there was essentially no plot outside of the looming concert and Kaoru being a bitch, so it never really hit the same emotional highs as Animas and CG. Still the most consistent of the three, tho.

It was an amazing finale to me. As a person who has grown to love the cast as the show went on, I felt really proud seeing everyone's hardwork in all aspects such as practicing for the concert, building friendships & awesome relationships with fellow idols as well as changing themselves for the better, come to fruition. PLUS! I got to hear new songs from the different units that were so catchy I'd wanna download them asap! It was an enjoyable episode indeed. I have definitely fallen in love with SideM & I'm hoping for a season 2 soon!!! :)

Not a perfect conclusion, but a satisfying one nonetheless.

A1 probably aware that SideM's popularity isn't as big as SideG.

BTW, does CG being two cour from the start..?

Really loved the finale! Wish this was 2 cour, so we could have seen more character development.

As someone who can't stand the regular The iDOLM@STER anime, Side M was a step in the right direction for people like me. Hope we get to see more Side M in the future!

Overall 8/10!
So glad that I'm not a huge manga reader, because the manga readers WHINE WAY TOO MUCH and have to RUIN every adapted anime for the ANIME ONLY WATCHERS!

I WANT MORE!! I loved the art, character design and the boys. It was awesome. Second season please.

I just want a second season with best boi Saki all the 315 pro idols, but overall this was a pretty nice closing episode, last performances were nice and seeing that this is merely the first stepping stone for 315 pro gives me high hopes that I will see more of them in the future, now we just wait for a season 2 or some OVA with all the 315 pro idols to be announced :>

Woah both Love Live Sunshine and Idolm@ster decided to make EFFY's composed OP songs as the main attraction for both! Surprisingly enjoyed this season than expected. They did surprisingly well despite the high number of characters, the songs were awesome as well. I hope we get a second season sooner and everyone's so likeable yes, even sakuraba in a way (atleast I didn't really hate his character nor did I find him annoying) 7/10

It was always planned to be two cours, but the second half was delayed a season.

A good ending!

I really liked SideM but I guess, throughout the series, I lost a bit of interest. At first, I was sure this would end up as a 9/10 in my list but I ended up finishing with a high 7/10. It's great. I feel generous so I will leave it off as a 8/10 since there are many good episodes. This show isn't bad at all but the whole "I wanna be an idol to make others have a happy smile!" idea felt a bit recycled and overused as time went on. I don't really understand why anyone would quit a high-end job like teacher, pilot, or surgeon to be an idol. Their reasoning isn't strong enough in my opinion... But everyone has this dreamy idea that they're gonna be a top idol and make millions of people happy which is a bit farfetched. I wanted to see a bit more, I guess.

Nevertheless, it was a fun tale. I guess I got a bit bored at some episodes since the ideas get rehashed and some groups are simply not as interesting as others. I'm too biased towards S.E.M. and they are one of the groups that got barely any screen time.

The animation/art was excellent, just like original IM@S and Cinderella Girls. Great stuff. Songs were great too!
