so recently i've been playing デレステ otherwise known as The iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls ~Starlight Stage~, the super popular, card-based idol collecting rhythm game: brought to you by BANDAI NAMCO. i can't believe it had already been over 7 years since i played the original mobamas on my iphone 3G and how much the franchise has changed since then, but regardless i've been really enjoying my re-introduction to the franchise.
the last time i've been really into cinderella girls was when the anime was airing back in 2015. i got a giant-puchi (i know, some oxymoron right?) kirari dekacchu figure as a result, as well as an anzu keychain from that time period since i really loved ankira at the time, but now it's 2019 and times have changed.
i've grown older, my tastes have matured, and i'm into cinderella girls more than ever; at least more so compared to my teenbro years. i felt a bit of a shock when i realized that, unfortunately, i was not so in love with ankira as i used to be. none of their SSRs (super-duper-rare cards) really appealed to me enough to aim for them and being able to understand japanese at a higher level than i used to now makes me able to bond with the girls more than ever.
at the moment i can't list my top-five of my top idols, so i've decided to name off a few of the ones that have really appealed to me and why instead:

shimamura uzuki: the all-rounder. although her purpose is just to be a plain, average girl– turning that into her charm point was genius. in a game full of quirky and eccentric characters, to me she is one of the few that stands out the most and for that i love her. she also reminds me of someone very dear to me and all her SSRs look really nice.
chieri ogata: the pure clover. as soon as i first heard her signature song 「風色メロディ」 kazeiro melody from the story commyus (story mode), i was instantly enraptured. a girl once very unnoticeable previously to me instantly became a favorite because of her soft, pure voice. her sweet nature and backstory also reminds me of someone very dear to me, and for that i love her as well.
abe nana: the funny bunny. abe is just funny to me. to be honest i liked her before i started playing cinderella girls because of that famous ''Nana Revolution 17" video but after playing cinderella girls my love for her only increased. she's very funny and her interactions with other idols is very hilarious. she's a girl full of gimmicks, but my favorite one has to be her ambiguous age.

totoki airi: the titty monster. my first SR in the game that i stuck with after rerolling a bunch. people tell me that i should have rerolled until i get an SSR, but i don't regret my decision of sticking with the two SRs i decided to stick with. to me, i want my first SSR to be special and a product of patience and hard work /cope. but anyway, i like airi, but maybe that's just because her valentines SR is just so ridiculous.
sunazuka akira: the meme girl. technically not in the starlight stage quite yet, she's one idol that i'm looking forward to her future inclusion. i love her concept of being an epic gamer, digital influencer, and sharp teeth. personally i'll be saving a spark for when her SSR finally comes out. also, if she isn't voice there will be blood.
so those are just a few of my favorite girls from cinderella girls. i hope you enjoyed reading my op and before you continue on with your day, why not share some of your favorite idols? love lives need not apply onegai.

No hits on a search. Looks like OP is the real deal.

You seem to be missing some great idols so I'll fill you in:
Takagaki Kaede: Goddess Queen of idolkind. Dont let her powerful, enchanting voice fool you, she's like every other 25 year old young girl. The only thing more beautiful than her face and her songs is her height, a whopping 171cm! No wonder she always gets first in popularity polls!
Ichinose "sniff sniff" Shiki: Watch out for this kitty cat! I love her long wavy hair lewd costumes. She loves Frederica and together they can be lazy lazy (among other things).
Miyamoto Frederica!: A super fun basket of cute French patisseries. She has the best cards as well.
Nitta Minameme: She looks like any ordinary girl but has a secret lewd side. Venus Syndrome is the best underrated CG song. In fact Minami herself is super underrated. It's time to change that.
ALSO can anyone confirm if the feature to look at close ups of your girl with different backgrounds was taken out? I can't find it…

i’m also interested in frederica and shiki, but i don’t know enough about them to be included in the list. other idols that appeal to me are sachiko, akane, momoka, miria, rin, arisu, nanami, rika, and miku. i have a bit of a bias toward cute idols

Those otateens will never believe I had a girl in my room.

Just a peek…
If she finds out I'll be in for a thrashing.

in this cinderella girls obsession i'm currently in, i decided to rewatch some episodes of the anime. i totally remember how much i love the producer in this series; at least in comparison to p-san in the original anime.
don't get me wrong, 765p-san is cool and all, but 346p-san has so much character than mr. smiley. his gentle giant nature allows him to grow alongside the girls and their problems and i just love that. it makes me excited to see if they'll introduce a new p-san for the inevitable million live anime, or stick to the original one. though shiny colors may come first in that regard in order to promote the game…

He's a l*licon but its ok.

never have i looked at a card and said to myself, "really? this is what you chose to draw?" and i'm not one normally to be bothered by these kinds of things, but usually they're a lot more subtle in im@s

I don't see what the problem is.

for the amount of cards she has, i'm surprised she's unvoiced

70,000 friendels until i have enough for a spark… i want dreamin'☆usamin but apparently that's a perm and people are telling me i should spend my spark on a limited card, so i'm aiming for cosplay uzuki-chan… though she comes around october so i'm most likely going to have enough much before that occurs so i can either decide on a cinderella festival card to aim for or save 150,000 friendels for both uzuki and akira's inevitable SSR… uuuu doushio…
on a side note i'm really happy to be watching cinderella girls for a second time, i forgot at how much of an improvement drama and story wise it was over the first anime (although chihaya's arc got me really emotional too). i just finished nana's episode and was very touched… sasuga skilled female directors and writers like noriko takao. i think this is where many many studios miss the mark when they create shows that feature a large female cast. perhaps in a fantasy setting it can pass, but the issues and problems these girls face and how they react to them feel so genuine and real and that's because it came from the heart of a woman… i love that. something so beautiful like that can only come from the female perspective, which is why men should stick to writing male protagonists.
a bit of a tangent but i had this issue with the latest FLCL in that both new series were being written with a female protagonist in mind but from the male perspective. in that regard the drama and lead characters felt very fabricated and forced– only adding on the pile of garbage the new seasons were.

I liked the CG anime but missed the cute fun antics of 765 pro. It was like idolm@ster: Depression Girls. AND Kaedequeen didn't get a bigger part.
Mishiro director is s*xy beast though.

will rika's gyaru upbringing doom her to a future of being a stuck-up gyaru b*tch?

Mika is so obsessed with her sister's best friend she doesn't even notice Rika going down the wrong path…

something i'm working on for fun… let me know if you think some changes should be made and where other idols not yet added should land
also explain some of the reasoning behind certain choices:
character idols will usually be marked closer to the left than non-character idols
naughty is a broad term that extends to idols who are either rotten, lewd, or partake in adult activities (such as drinking)
the center horizontal line also divides idols who have expressed feelings of wanting to have a relationship beyond producer-idol and those who haven't

Just how pure is
Rika <<< Miria < Mika <<<< Driven snow <<< distilled water <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Arisu

She needs constant surveillance to prevent other idols from defiling her.

Sugoi graphic design skills. Sugar Heart has to be more pure and fake than naughty. Maybe switch Sachikong and Frede. Nothing about kong says genuine to me but that's just me.
ty henrimin! sato’s placement was based on her tragic backstory according to the wiki. as for frederica and sacchi i will move them closer to the center line in the next update, perhaps even placing sacchi directly on the line, as i believe her confidence is genuine but at the same time hides some secrets to herself. as for frederica’s case she is just slightly to the left of the center line due to her speech habit!>>444059
you know as much as i’d like them to be genuine… it just isn’t the case brother
i mentioned it in the post above yours, if u can explain why she would be moved otherwise please do>>444066
ok i will add her the next update

Hmm if only idols weren't meant to create a pure and genuine aura, then that corner wouldn't be so crammed.
