The official Twitter account of The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls revealed that a second season of the anime will air this Summer. The first season is currently airing and will finish at 13 episodes on April 11.

The iDOLM@STER, which originally aired for two cours in 2011, will also be re-broadcast this year. The first cours will air during Spring and the second during Fall. This results in a full year of iM@S anime broadcasts which is part of the franchise's "Excellent Year" announcements. 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the series, originally released as an arcade game in July 2005.

As long as it's good then I'm fine with it, obviously there's no way to properly give everyone a fair amount of screentime in just 13 episodes of season 1.

Pleasantly surprised but can understand that extra episodes are needed for such a large cast.

with this being said, it might be a good to marathon the earlier seasons.

I was hoping it'll be straight 2-cour, but this is fine.

Might as well add a 3rd season. :D

The way people roll over for this company


What company exactly are you referring to A-1 or Aniplex??

If you ask other peolle though everything A-1 animates is absolutely stunningly beautiful and they're forever blown away so again amazing how this fanbade has anything but a clear standard.


And have you asked these people and gotten that reaction??? cuz last time I checked, A-1 is actually one of the more hated studios behind only the likes of TOEI and DEEN

But really, who am I kidding here, well thought-out and backed-up arguments have also been your Forte and not just repetetive shit you continue to pull out of your Hipster ass, Am I right???

Idol anime again... One less anime to watch on that season. I wish they would spend more time on other genres instead.

It's better they take their time and split it than air some rushed work with mediocre quality. At least I prefer it this way and don't mind waiting one or two seasons for it especially since this isn't a show where you end on a giant cliffhanger where you can't wait for the continuation.
Even if it was planned as 2 cour from the start it's nice to have a confirmation. They could have simply cancelled it for any reasons (like their busy schedule for example...).


If you ask some fans its already too little too late and its not to maintain or boost the quality but too keep it from falling even lower. If you ask other peolle though everything A-1 animates is absolutely stunningly beautiful and they're forever blown away so again amazing how this fanbade has anything but a clear standard. Everything is always so polarizing and then you get people that me that just find most stuff mediocre or something I'm indifferent too. I think I'd relate a lot more to people if everything wasn't always treated like a tremendously big deal one way or another cause usually its not, its just business as usual in every sense of the word.

I'm loving the PR spin here, Aniplex always getting the instant news and softball spin as always. Since I know nobody is going to any actual research I think its worth mentioning that the show was always planned as 2 cour but it was planned to be continuous. A-1 is just so overloaded with crap to try to animate that they're way behind schedule and not even a week off was good enough to help so they are now splitting it up and doing reruns of the original.

The way people roll over for this company no doubt they'll see it as they are doing them some kind of favor, but nope its just bad scheduling. After all isn't all news great and cause for celebration. Everything is equally great and everything is perfectly okay with this industry. No problems anywhere to be seen no sir. Lets all cheer on this great industry that totally cares about us and our satisfaction.

Its not aniplex is reporting this on western news sites, you know.[/quote]

No just people that follow their misleading PR spins
