The original Im@s is the only good one. The rest is just soulless garbage.
>>225817648Idols are soulless garbage by definition.
Only CG is soulless, churning out more characters as gacha fodder without even giving them voices.
>>225817648Is Azusa married yet
>>225817648>three DLC idols in the pic>"original" im@s
>>225817648The problem with this is when people say "original" they still mean 2nd Vision, which was a shitty watered down version of the actual original. Half the cast had their arcs trimmed down to nothing, and it's reflected in the anime, where they had no idea what to do with girls like Hibiki or Miki. The only thing it improved was the character designs.
>>225817761Anime is soulless garbage by definition. A mass consumed product for virgins.
CG is not Im@s
As far as the series goes, sure. There are however quite a few CG that are really nice individually speaking.
ML is also soulless garbage, riding off of the backs of AS just to remain relevant.
Here is the (you) you craved so much for making this thread to link it on /@/. I will post some CG now.
>The original Im@sAnd what is this? For /a/ the "original" is the 2nd vision/anime which is not true at all.
>>225817648whoa whoa CG is from 2011 so it's old and has soul now!
>>225817876>>225820692and SC isn't real im@s since dire1 wasn't involved.
>>225820712CG = cute girls
I like the Cinderella Girls anime. It was cute and (most) characters were likeable and it makes me happy and fuwa fuwa
>>225821347I rewatched it and even the ones that were kind of bitchy had good enough motivations I don't like chieri or mio though
>>225821347CG anime is only watchable if you skip every scene with the main trio.
>>225821438Mio was insufferable during that whole "boo hoo no one came to my first live" fiasco but other than that, what's wrong with them?
What's /a/'s opinion on the 3DPD raibus?
>>225821842That they're neither anime nor manga.
>>225821438what about that time they were thinking of unit names and uzuki just wouldn't stop eating -- but it looked like rin was the one gaining the weight from all her eating and uzuki kept getting smaller>>225821778YOU LOOK A LITTLE STIFF, GIRLS
Where the fuck is my Shiny Colors anime?
>>225821938cute small crotch
>>225821237Bloom Journey is my favorite literal whonit. Yume a cute.
>>225821778She was not insufferable, she just misjudged the whole situation, and acted like an 15yo teenager.
>>225821926Seiyuu are just as anime as directors and other staff members
I love you Iori.I love you.
>>225822082She thinks youre a fat loser!
>>225822052Expecting fame on your first live show when you're a literal who and then getting moody about it (when you're supposed to be determined enough to be an idol) is being insufferable. Especially when Rin and Uzuki were just fine
>>225822052no she was still insufferable even when she was trying to redeem herself

>>225822118She blamed herself for falling the audience, for not catching their attention. It was the anime that failed to explain the situation. After all, staff had to explain it themselves afterwards, but the damage was already done.
>>225821438The starter pokemon in every gen of im@s have always been mediocre.
imas has had pathos in every iteration and the only people who think otherwise are the ones who've lost the Soul themselves.

>>225823714if you haven't already, she has a whole manga to herself that takes place before she became office lady

>>225823985CG does have stuff coming up, but it's been a little quiet lately due to MLTD's big anniversary event, their re-worked UI, and even alternate hairstyles. "they're giving a lot of attention into MLTD" is what i'm trying to say
>>225824069She’s so cute!
>>225823108Elementary schoolers are the best!
>>225824139>spoiler>implying an idol show needs itbut I can't fully disagree with you either. The current cloverworks would make an absolute shitshow out of it and tank at least three girls' popularities
>>225824452>The current cloverworks would make an absolute shitshow out of it and tank at least three girls' popularitiesPlus cloverworks would've delayed the final few eps for at least 3-6 months and it would've been meme'd in anime blogs
>>225823231>CGI765 anime was great because it didn't use CG at all. Even though there was QUALITY from time to time (ranging from random subpar cuts to the infamous awkward rotoscoped scene), being traditionally animated makes it truly timeless. The trailer and that CM looks like the usual crap where stills look good but the actual animation is extremely stiff and robotic because they just limit the framerate without spending any effort to eliminate the uncanniness.
>>225825001M@sterpiece used CG, anon...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAIx8aNlpXU
>>225825001>infamous awkward rotoscoped sceneThe guy redeemed himself afterwards
Old hag idols are the worst.
>>225817648The only good characters weren't even in the original, they were only added later.
>>225825724I only watched the movie this year and pretty much forgot about it because it wasn't good (while I watched the series back when it aired and rewatched it again this year). The only reason I ended up watching it was because the cast did 10-year anniversary commentary streams for the original anime and they finished it with the movie. I was never really interested in it because /a/ had made so much fun out of the snack fumbling scene and nobody ever talked anything positive about the whole thing. It was about as subpar as I expected so I forget about the CGI.
>>225817648>no ohimechin SUGOI DEKAIfucking bullshit
>>225821347GG producer looks like the type of guy who keeps a gun in his drawer. He had a certain charm to his awkwardness unlike the 765 producer.

>>225828886>>225817648>>225817714>>225817876>>225818923That's because you're an uninformed anime shitter who doesn't know anything else about the series other than the anime.
>>225828841theater > puchimas
>>225823231just like every other series since the original there are too many characters so my favorite one gets skipped over
>>225823231I genuinely think the CGI looks rather decent. There are some obvious issues when you pause on each video, but with good camera direction, it might not be that noticeable.
M@sterpiece is the only memorable song

>>225833617 just for the record I wasn't the person you were talking to, in terms of liking the IP I guess I like the songs and character designs enough to at least check out where they originally came from. the patch helps too in regards to SC, just haven't gotten my head around all the mechanics just yet.

Unbearable thread full of retards.
This is Megumi. She has a cute seiyuu and her anime is coming soon.
>>225840186The original Im@s and the current im@s are completely different things, so it's completely natural for fans of the original not to care about the phone games. In japan if you meet a person that's into any kind of otaku stuff, they more likely than not know the OGs.Only insecure mobilefags have to pretend they're the same because the brandname is the same and start spamming threads that are made to appreciate the originals.
>>225841640It's OPs fault for making a bait thread trying to pit the different factions against each other. I make Iori threads farely regularly and they don't bother me too often.
>>225841850Fair enough, though usually non-bait threads for AS also get taken over.
For me, it's Shiny Colors.
>>225841640This is the same as SJW/liberal gaslighting.
>>225841889Looks like soulless trash with no hot girls.
>>225840722Not much to expect from an OP with "soulless" in it.
>>225841889I've only ever played the PS3 game out of all the mainline ones but man people weren't kidding when they said SC went back to its roots, either it's stupidly unorthodox for a gacha game or I haven't played enough gachas
>>225842424>it's stupidly unorthodox for a gacha gameI'd say it is, and some might argue it's the closest thing to the actual arcade cabinet experience in these modern times
>>225842463it's funny you mention that because I've been wondering how the fuck that shit worked when it was an arcade game, guess I have the answer now
>>225842500Really the more you think about it the more confusing it getsLike who in their right mind would go to an arcade to play what more or less is a VN
>>225842500The arcade game was really cool for its time. Giant touch screen, face off online against other players along with a ranking system, cards to keep track of your "career" long progress and the idols you produce, and you could receive messages from the idols on your phone when you weren't playing (hence the @ in Idolm@ster).
>>225843122That sounds like a fuck of a lot more fun than playing some retarded fighting game and dying after 2 rounds.
>>225822898Why doesnt the iguana idol have her cute iguana?
>>225844549346Pro has fallen on hard times due to people realizing it is a cashgrab, and poor Hyou-kun had to be eaten by the girls for nourishment. (She had already sold her voice, and this was the only way for the starving group of D-list idols to survive another day).
>>225817648iori and big boobed girls were my favorite.androphobic girl made me drop it.
>>225817648Re:Stage and Lapis were pretty enjoyable.Idoly pride's performances were 3dcg but they were some of the best I've seen.Budoukan was a great show.
>>225843210sure but the common thing with arcade cabs (and fighting games) is that they're kind of designed to be stupid hard to get coins out players, while being satisfying enough to make them to keep wanting to play and if you're not willing to shell out more than you have to relinquish the cab and let others play. I'm not going to claim to know what the original arcade imas was like but there's that aspect to consider if you think about arcades.imagine if there's like only one arcademas cab in your local arcade and some shmuck hogs it for like the whole of your break time and you miss your daily date with chihaya
I like all loliM@S equally

>>225844909>every day, Chi-chan waits for her handsome, well-dressed and successful anon boyfriend to come to the arcade>but he's too busy making big bucks at work, barely having enough time to finish his lunch in between making millions in profit>more often than not, anon is busy after work, too, having to solve some financial crisis at his workplace (for which his boss thanks him profusely, offering bonuses as reward), or helping some newcomer at the gym, spreading the simple joy of self-improvement to his fellow men>Chihaya's forced to spend they day with some smelly fat NEET otaku loser who only thinks of idols as onanie material, and loudly promises to masturbate to her when he gets back home>unable to espace from her dimension, she can only blush and nod submissively as everyone in the arcade stares with disgusted faces at the fat fuck smearing grease all over screen and recounting how many times he's fapped to which teenage idol this month>Chi-chan begins another dance routine in a skimpy dress, unable to resist the game's controls, and from the corner of her eye can see the foul beast lecherously ogling at her legs and panting>will tomorrow be the same?
>>225845512We all know the average anon is much more likely to be the latter person in that story than the former.
I like CG the best.
