It's time they get the true Idolm@ster as well, the fans here want it but few have the $1000 to import.

Good, they got both seasons of AKB0048.

Only Quality shows for Sentai...

Not fond of Either series. Only watching Hakkenden because most music Idol shows are terror.

Hooray for AKB0048! :D I'm glad that they've got it, but they've been obtaining quite a lot of anime recently

Looks like they got their hands on another hot one.
Well most of the best do get taken. And i'm not really surprise they got it.
Will be look forward to it. Tho won't get my hopes up because it's not my cup of tea
The Art of Shipping is no mere game. It can be small skirmishes to huge nation size wars.
Of course some will claim their ship is the BATTLESHIP but they all do. This is why battles occur because of factions fighting each other to justify their favourite ship.
And thus SHIP to SHIP combat occurs almost anytime even now.
Beware, Threading into the Shipping battlefield will be bloody.... What are you waiting for?

Agree lol :D
I desire money. Not because I am poor or because I am greedy. It is because with money I will gain power and with that power I will be able to change the world.

Never seen Hakkenden and AKB0048 is somewhere between terrible, hilarious and downright amazing and I can't quite tell which.

With all of this getting licensed, I sure hope Idolm@ster gets a release soon, I'd totally jump on that. Well, there's been rumours of some of the games being localised for Europe recently, so it's not too impossible...
