I just hope this will be great, and I'm curious which studio is going to make it.
Also I noticed the hype on twitter. It was even trending!

Normal Idols like in the games and the Live for You OVA.

Finally. I always enjoyed the Idolmaster songs and I didn't like the idea of the spin-off, so I'm glad that it will be based on the games.

I hope Nishigori's involved in some of the animation, too. Maybe he'll get some of his buddies to work on some scenes...

Wish I could've played the game before this, but I'm excited to finally understand what all the hype is about! As long as it has nothing to do with Xenosaga, I'm in!

This is good. Xenoglossia was crap.
This is why you dont make a dance rhythm game into a moe-y mecha anime.

She always voiced Iori, ever played the games.

Not a spinoff like Xenoglossia? *thumbs up*
He has journeyed where none have been before. Now he returns to ensure that none follow.

Eh. If there's Makoto/Chihaya, then sure, why not. I'm into iDOLM@STER for the characters more than anything else, so I hope they'll at least be true to them.

...And keep the designs from the first game. I'm not happy with Azusa's new haircut, nor Makoto's.

EDIT: Just watched the trailer. Darn.

Who are those little girls in pain, just trapped in a castle in the dark side of the moon?
Twelve of them shining brightly in vain, like flowers that blossom just once in years.
They're dancing in the shadow like whispers of love, dreaming of a place where they're free as doves.
They've never been allowed to love in this cursed cage; it's only the fairy tale they believe.

They took out Ritsuko's pigtails, that's a shock (she doesn't look the same without them), however Ami and Mami having different ponytail lengths is probably a good idea especially since this is present in Idolm@ster 2 due to the twins being discovered adds some continuity between this anime and the games and to get viewers who aren't on the gaming bandwagon a chance to differentiate between the twin sisters.

Ami and Mami were more adorable when they were in twin-sync. It sort of annoys me when twins that were that close just look different for no reason.

And yeah; Ritsuko Palin does not amuse.

Aw man, Ritsuko Palin. That's funny. Missing the old design though.
I'm excited for this. Damn good music and characters. That's what iM@s is all about. As long as I get Chihaya and Yukiho (and Miki), I'll be satisfied.

Seems like its gonna be an all female cast show whose plot is gonna be really different from the game. I'm not really a fan of these kinds of show at all but I hope at least the music is good. God I want to play the game though.

The music will be good since the cast of the anime is the same as the games.
