Hell yeah.

Season 2 and season 3 where?

I can't wait to see my favorite girl.
Miki, Makoto, Ami, Mami, Takane, Azusa, Hibiki, Iori, Yayoi, Chihaya, Ritsuko, Kotori, Yukiho, Haruka, come to me!


Ehr...

Well, just ended to watch these OVAs, and as i thought, in terms of animation, resuming, is equal to Flash.

Order of OVAs: don't mind.
Plot: what plot? fuck that plot.

それ以上だ。




Now, back to the game, because is important.

I will never have enough iDOLM@STER until each character gets their own season.

If people think this is milking the franchise, they've obviously aren't aware the high cost of the game's DLC. Or the slot machine. Or how much money people have spent on the gachas for the Cinderella Girls. Or the amount of CDs being put out related to the franchise. Or the size of the live concerts. There is a VERY HIGH DEMAND for iDOLM@STER, so naturally, Scamco, as a business, will provide and profit from it. An announcement like this is probably just Tuesday for the hardcore iM@S fans.

Pointless milking

If it makes money, it's not pointless. In fact that is the point. And in the process I get more iM@S. Works for me.

Plus, this in no way precludes a second season. If anything it makes it more likely because more money = more output.

Plus Idolmaster is making a bunch of new manga, so the franchise isn't going anywhere. I'd be surprised if there ISN'T a 2nd anime season.

Well this is awesome because more iDOLM@STER = fuck yeah.

But I won't be able to buy it, because no matter how much I like the show I'm not buying three separate video games for a system I do not own just to get it. =/


Plus I'd imagine these would be on the PSP UMD themselves, instead of a separate disc.


Ew, that isn't good, those are region locked and while it's easy to mod to or grab a region 0 DVD player, few these days would want to buy a JP PSP for this game only.

hmm i should start on this series one of these days.

Pointless milking. I bet these episodes won't even be good.

Just make a season 2.

This.

More Idolmaster is always good!

JUST GIVE ME MORE HIBIKI! >_<


More Hibiki is nice also more Miki, Haruka, Ami, Mami, Iori, Yayoi, Takane, Azusa, Yukiho, Ritsuko, Makoto, but most of all, much, much, much more Chihaya.
