Movie's coming out soon.
Sincerely, Berserk fanbase
That's Miura's problem, not ours.
>Miura favorite idol in the game is Azusa
It's Chihaya you dumbfuck.
idolmaster is an anime you know and it has an upcoming movie as well.
Tell that to the TL Lobby.
subs fucking when
Whoa calm down.
I won't bother with you guys again. Sheesh
No thanks. Video game boards in 4chan are reddit-tier shithole to me.
It's not open in Japan yet.
what does yayoi smell like?
iDOLM@STER isn't coming to America, right? I was all over going to Madoka but not with the anime club, and I feel that iDOLM@STER would be worse
No, it's an all country road show, not global.
I hope Iori gets the most screentime, and Chihaya dies.
I hope you fuck off and die.
All roads lead to Rome...as long as you're on the Eurasian continent, and Japan is removed from both that clusterfuck of a landmass and the Americas.
So no, that roadshow is will not be making it outside of Japan, unless we get engineers to built super-duper-long, cross-continent, Pacific-length bridges.
Fuck off >>>/vg/
How about No.
Fuck off with your general, we finally got rid of you fags and can finally have independent iM@S threads without your shitposting. If you're just going to shitpost then go there with the rest of your shitposting friends.
>we finally got rid of you fags
You actually believed that?
fuck of /vg/shitters
>finally got rid of you fags
Dude. Verty's a wart on /a/ in general, let alone everyone else who still goes in that shithole. You might as well say we're finally rid of all trolls.
where is my Puchimas movie
You get a season 2 instead, even better.
Where is my CG OVA?
Where is my CG anime?
>puchimas gets S2
>no S2 for idolmaster anime
They could make five more seasons of Puchi with 100 yen at that quality, so no wonder.
Just wait until the movie screens.
iDOLM@STER the anime S2 featuring ML.
And now the CG cancer is here.
Let's get this movie out of the way first before we start floodgating "S2 when".
If you are like iM@S and you don't post on /@/ then you are cancer.
So if I'm like iM@S, then I'm cancer? So transitive property means that iM@S is cancer. Thanks.
>i'm gonna use fancy english words look at me hurr
I imagine this is what a CG OVA would be like.
DS needs an anime first
That shit is top class
Are we gonna get more 876PRO?
Hopefully we get more in OFA, it'd be a shame to waste the models they made for them. Especially with 3rd Vision around the corner.
Tomato and HanaKana are too expensive now for that ...
They even got a cameo in the anime. I don't know what's stopping them from going further than that.
Do I even want to know what's normal for you?
Namco hates acknowledging them at present
That's mere theory at best as to why they're being used, and it's not even that legitimate of a theory considering most of the people working on voices there. Truth be told there are better reasons to be found.
In the movie, they'll get TWO cameos.
They should make a movie only with the TWIAO characters.
Hey, let's come up with reasons they aren't appearing. I'll start.
With everything that comes with being in iM@S (i.e. concerts, events, etc.), could they not be interest in being that invested in the franchise?
That's a bit plausible since they aren't under the same sort of contract
Sometimes I feel that what we get is all we may get when it comes to Scamco giving us more iM@S. 876 gets an anime cameo and that's all they get. There probably won't be a CG or ML anime, with a movie role all they seem to get getting any time soon. A second season for the anime could be plausible, but we won't see that for another year or two, if any. Localization of any media? Forget that forever.
Pipedreams can be a depressing letdown when you remember what company controls your realities. Best to sleep on those things until eternity. Just remember to wake up just in case Scamco does the impossible...which is impossible in itself.
What happened to the generals? Did that autisticfuck OP die or something?
He moved the threads to /vg/ without telling anyone because he thinks it will stop the shitposting. He's wrong though, once weekend hits the shitposting will surely go back to how it was. I doubt 90 second timer can stop meta and shitposters. It's not like they can't use proxies.
Given recent circumstances, I kind of feel like some people here (and there) wish that actually was the case.
I certainly do think it'd be for the better. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not so edgy that I actively wish for it. If he could becomes less autistic, I'd be okay with that too.
The shitposting in the last general on /a/ was definitely targeted at a contributor instead of OP.
He moved the thread to /vg/ for reasons that were explained to no one, and people went along with it.
There's too much people going "Man I hate that ___ guy" rather than talking about idols anyway, but I don't moving the thread will really fix that so much. I don't know what would really fix just in general lousy posting and scapegoating for literally no reason, aside from maybe just stopping for awhile and some people just walking away as they realize they don't have to be here. No one is actually forcing anyone to post. Who the hell cares about ___ who isn't even named in the threads as that's their alias from another site, no one cares, talk about the series itself already. There's a reason people chose to be anon in that thread in the first place to avoid that shit.
Hard to say if that kind of thinking once started will ever go away, but maybe once something actually related to the series starts airing again people will watch it together once more and forget the petty shit.
When puchi started airing it was also the period with the most Melan meta.
They should make an anime adaptation of BRE@K
Fuck off Panzer
Because people pissed off Melan by shitposting about Hibiki causing him to say fuck it and delete his mediafire account as some sort of ragequit.
Which was pretty stupid in the first place. Non of the other contributors ever did something like that, he's the only one who decided to act like an immature whiny little bitch.
Honestly, who cares about the past this much?
It just prevents us from having a future.
I just want to talk about cute girls.
You should report shitposting instead of being complacent with it. It's not difficult to report. If you have 4chan X installed, turn on the "Menu" and "Report Link" options and you can easily report posts.
If you do that, things will improve. Remember, janitors and mods can't get rid of problematic posts if they don't know they exist.
And the shitposting was immature as well, you can't except everyone to deal with it like they are some sort of robot without emotions.
They should have dealt with it in a mature manner.
I want to be excited, but I can't. The movie will just shove more Miki, Haruka and Chihaya in my face while ignoring the other girls. Yukiho will have like 5 lines the entire film.
Oh shut up, stop acting like people don't know how to report. They just don't want to.
If he had said something about it in the general it would have caused an equal kind of meta. It was /@/ who blew everything up causing things to be worse then they actually were.
>Non of the other contributors ever did something like that
Yeah they did. The guy who used to make the MKV versions of the drama CDs quit and deleted his MediaFire. Since then, a typesetter has done the same.
And honestly, I can't blame him for being upset. He was attacked for no reason other than people disliking him because he had a waifu. He hadn't done anything whatsoever to warrant the attacks he got. Same with all the other contributors and named people who have been attacked. Even the attacks on kai don't make sense. He doesn't even post that often.
That's why I'm telling you to stop being complacent with it. Report shitposting when you see it, instead of just thinking to yourself "It's fine, someone else will report it". The problem is, EVERYONE thinks that someone else will do it, and then no one ends up doing it.
Verty is also in big part to blame for posting this. He should have known what this would lead to.
>I hope Chihaya dies.
I just hope they announce S2 for Summer because there's no way that movie will be very satisfying when it comes to ensuring the girls get a satisfying amount of screen time.
Have you even researched anything on the movie, we already have some basic parts worked out, good director and Haruka, seems like a good deal to me.
>Since then, a typesetter has done the same.
Sup homie, I just did it because I was bored and not enough meta was going on. Can't use me for an example now, can you?
He's even saying he "reuploaded" them, If Verty had acted less like an asshole by posting that the outcome would most likely have been completely different.
>"It's fine, someone else will report it"
That's not what I think at all, I just don't give enough of a fuck so long as there's no spam.
>He was attacked for no reason other than people disliking him because he had a waifu.
They attacked him because his waifu is his weak point.
But it's also the fault of the people who kept reposting that and wouldn't let it go. Sometimes people make mistakes. Rational people move on, forgive and forget. And yet instead, even now, you get people saying "WHY WOULD HE EVER TRUST HIM AGAIN". Sane people don't break up friendships over a single mistake.
Then you're a really, really stupid person. You destroyed all your own work because you were bored? Why not just go ahead and burn your house down for the fun of it then?
Then you're just as bad as the shitposters. Like someone who watches someone drowning and just stands there doing nothing because it's "not my problem".
>Then you're just as bad as the shitposters. Like someone who watches someone drowning and just stands there doing nothing because it's "not my problem".
A lot of people are like this in society.
>Then you're a really, really stupid person.
I don't see how boredom can be transformed into stupi-
>You destroyed all your own work because you were bored?
Oh, that's why you think that. Come on now, deleting the files from MF wouldn't matter at all because someone would just reupload them.
>Why not just go ahead and burn your house down for the fun of it then?
Because that'd be stupid and I wouldn't have somewhere to sleep every night? Not to mention that I only have an apartment. You're pulling straws here, you can't compare something as insignificant as a few files on the internet that other people already have to a roof over your head.
Which is why you should strive to be better. In this case, there is something very simple yet effective that you can do about shitposting. So do it, for the benefit of everyone.
See, if everyone else is happy, it'll make them more likely to discuss things in a happy and nice manner, rather than getting in a big fight about things.
>Report shitposting when you see it
I've been doing this for months. And you know what? It's changed absolutely fucking nothing.
That's because unless we have a big ass shitstorm the mods and janitors rarely pay attention to us.
Destroying something "just for fun" is stupid. You might be a sociopath. Regardless, you're certainly a bad person. But since you're probably a sociopath, there's really no point in talking about this with you further, as you are incapable of comprehending what I'm saying. So yeah, you're stupid.
I report shitposting too. You gotta have lots of people reporting it on a really fast board like /a/ to get noticed though.
/vg/ seems to have janitors who are more sensitive compared to here because the board is slower and easier for them to manage, which is one thing to be said in favor of moving to there.
Seriously guys, that was over a year ago now, Melan and I are still friends, I expressed shame for posting that image in the very same thread it was first posted in. Let it go.
I'll be taking my trip back off now.
I didn't destroy anything, I deleted some files that I still have in my hard drive. Hell, I keep all my PSDs on dropbox so I still have those too.
Too late, your shitposting already ruined this thread. Congrats, another victory for the TL Lobby.
Drama aside the thread seems pretty pleasant.
Yeah, but you denied the work you'd done for others, to the very people who you'd done it for. Not only that, you deleted your upload in the very same thread you posted it in, preventing people who actually wanted to read it from reading it.
If you honestly can't see the problem with that, you're stupid. Allow me to give you another metaphor. It's like making a cake for someone and then dumping it on the ground in front of them "just for fun" and "hey, it's ok, I still have all the ingredients".
He didn't shitpost though. It was you guys overreacting to his presence that caused the derailment. You need to stop victim-blaming and stop overreacting to stuff that's not even remotely worth getting upset about.
None of that is any reassurance. The basic parts make it seem like the movie is a rehash of the last episodes, and Nishigori directing was a problem in the first place.
That doesn't really help the character focus issue brought up.
This meta is fucking retarded.
It's more like dropping the cake and it turns out you still have another cake behind your back to give them later.
>Yeah, but you denied the work you'd done for others
It was reuploaded less than half an hour after, and I knew it was going to be reuploaded almost as soon as people found out. I didn't deny anyone anything, it was also already more than a week after my last release so most of the people that were going to download it had already download it. Most of the downloads happen in the first two days.
Except you didn't have another cake to give. You're now pretending that you had another cake all along. But you didn't.
That's not me, kiddo.
It's still retarded, more so then when melan deleted his mediafire.
Actually no, you deleted it in literally the same thread that you uploaded the last page in.
And you're still stupid for doing that. Nothing you say will ever change that. You still cannot justify throwing out a perfectly good cake "just for fun". And it was a good cake. I enjoyed that cake. And you got rid of it because you were bored. The fact that someone else rescued the cake afterwards doesn't change what you did.
Stop it with the cake metaphor, I'm getting hungry.
Yeah yeah, keep complaining. It doesn't change the fact that it succeeded in that small time. Also, you made me hungry with all the silly cake metaphors, so I'm gonna go make one.
I'm not going to keep complaining. I'm just explaining that you're stupid, and what you did was stupid. And nothing will ever change that.
Sure thing, buddy.
>He didn't shitpost though.
This >>100394673 is shitposting.
It's pretty damn mild on the scale-of-shitposting, and certainly didn't warrant the response it got. Or, let me put it another way: If it had been anyone else posting that, it wouldn't have gotten that response. That's how you know the response was unjustified.
Disliking your waifu = shitposting.
It doesn't matter if it's mild or not, it's still shitposting.
I'm more bothered by the fact that we just had a 'contributor' literally admit that he will gladly derail /@/ back into meta when he's "bored and not enough meta was going on" (actual quote).
This thread needs more puchi shitposting
My waifu isn't even from im@s you dumbfuck.
My point is though, that this response: >>100399265 is a much more reasonable reaction, and furthermore, one that tried to spin the discussion in a more interesting direction. It's not who's posting it, but what is posted, that matters.
Fun fact, scanlators are predominantly giant dicks.
And then you people get pissed when melan talks about Hibiki or says he loves her.
Then you have shit taste, and your opinion is discarded.
Yeah, that guy is a dick.
And this is a VERY good point. I find people get waaaay too upset over stuff like "Thread's asleep, post puchis" or "AMI ZONE", yet don't seem to give a shit about genuinely hurtful, hateful, or derail-inducing posts. It's completely ass-backwards.
Honestly the community's beyond saving at this point. The hivemind has already been formed and anyone outside of that hivemind is attacked accordingly.
No, it's gotten this bad in the past and then turned around and gotten SUPER HAPPY afterwards for some time.
Downhill is easy, but uphill it not impossible. Things can change, for the better, even now. That, I believe.
I know that being optimistic can seem crazy, but I'd rather be crazy and happy instead of sober and sad. I'm sorry if you disagree with me about that.
This is what you sound like. Also stop talking like a broken record.
So basically, you're saying "Don't even try".
Sorry, but I still have faith in other people. There are good people here. They have been shunned and insulted and made to feel very small. But I haven't given up on them.
I have no faith in them because they continue to make the same mistakes over and over with no sign of improving or wanting to improve and most people with sense have moved on already.
Some people stick around/keep contributing not for us but for their waifu or whatever.
That doesn't make them better than anyone else.
Yes it does.
No it doesn't. They're doing it to feed their own ego.
You sound like the kind of person who has never being in love before or who can't into love.
Regardless of the reason they help out, they still help out.
You're acting just as bad as the people you claim to dislike.
I've been in love and that's how I know they're doing it for ego. Protip if you feel something you don't have to keep stating it to yourself.
So in other words you value contributors above other posters.
Then don't treat them as if they're special. As we've seen from this thread, it doesn't matter if someone is a contributor or not, they can still be big assholes in the end.
I'm hoping to see some
2. More Iori being tsun-tsun with Yayoi
3. More Takane and Hibiki moments.
4. More YukiMako fantasies
5. HaruChiha sleeping together with Yuri Child
6. HibiTaka taking Serika under their wings.
7. All couples take a Million Live home.
I'm sorry, I think you misunderstand.
I don't treat them special. I am thankful to them for the stuff they contribute. Are you saying I shouldn't be thankful? I'm not >>100401911
>if you feel something you don't have to keep stating it to yourself.
And some people want to tell the world they are in love. So what if they contribute to show the world they love an idol? It's a valid reason to contribute in my opinion.
You can be thankful, but there's no need to have double standards. Don't let contributors get away with something just because they're contributors and treat all of them and other posters fairly. Also don't bring up their names in the thread if they aren't using one.
It's still feeding ego if they have to keep saying "I'm that guy who loves this idol" over and over.
Is it considered entry-level to like Miki the most?
I think she is the cutest and would marry her in a hearbeat
It's a popular choice, but there's nothing wrong with that.
>You can be thankful, but there's no need to have double standards. Don't let contributors get away with something just because they're contributors and treat all of them and other posters fairly. Also don't bring up their names in the thread if they aren't using one.
I do neither of the things you are suggesting. I don't pick fights, I react the same to everyone the same way. And I don't bring up names.
Also, "I'm that guy who loves this idol"? This doesn't happen. What happens is, someone posts that they love an idol. The fact that they are contributing as well isn't a factor. It's certainly not something to get upset over in any way.
>It's still feeding ego if they have to keep saying "I'm that guy who loves this idol" over and over.
Perhaps, but so what? If they like to express their love that way then so be it.
The Japanese likes her the most with the polls I see, but like who you like despite that.
That's great and all, but that's not the majority of posters right now. You can claim all you want, but if you don't post enough people won't see there's good posters. People got too obsessed with hating on people and anything remotely off topic to the point they expect this is how it has always been and continue doing so.
Yes, it does happen with that 俺の嫁 and 響愛してる naming even when it doesn't apply. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you have to, other people have enough respect to keep their waifu out of it if it's not imas related.
Again, because double standards. If person you don't like posts it then it's not okay, but if you like posts it then it's perfectly fine.
>You can claim all you want, but if you don't post enough people won't see there's good posters.
I post all the time. So do lots of other good people.
You don't need many people to cause trouble, that's the problem. But I remain optimistic and encourage on-topic discussion as much as I possibly can, and there are times when people completely ignore those trying to start shit. Those are good times. I strive for those times.
>Yes, it does happen with that 俺の嫁 and 響愛してる naming even when it doesn't apply
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, people are free to name things how they want to name it.
Shouldn't you be in the /vg/ thread, OP.
And he should take anonp with him as well.
Why get so upset at someone having a fictional character as their waifu anyway, if all they do is post "I love you" and pictures of that character?
Again you only have claims. We don't know how many good or bad posters there are and sometimes people do both. Reporting can only do so much in terms of quality. Besides how rare is a good conversation now? I remember asking when was the last time we discussed Yayoi legit and it couldn't be remembered. When it comes down to meta people claim they're good posters, but we can never know for sure as people can lie and we're all Anonymous. The thing is that entry on the 8th live posted in the thread was something completely different from anything I've seen here. It's like people don't give off that fan talking about things vibe anymore. People don't like playing the games or rewatching the anime and so on, which brings the question, what do they like? Very often the response is "the characters", but you learn about the characters mostly from the games.
Probably because they think it's a 'bad thing" to do. You know, you can't show your love for an idol at all.
This is exactly what >>100402527
was talking about.
You can show your love for an idol, but usually you'll get hated for it.
I think love is a great thing.
What exactly do you want us to do, then? Because giving up is not an option.
Shut up and go back to /vg/. We don't want you back here. You already derailed this thread into meta because it was starting on that thread and you didn't like that. So then you dumped it here. If you're going to fuck off then stay fucked off.
It usually doesnt devolve into meta bickering until someone goes "Oh hey theres no meta bickering right now"
Who are you even talking to? If you want to discuss go and discuss.
I haven't seen verty or melan getting hate directed at their post whenever they post a "I love you" and whenever melan posts a contribution with "I love Hibiki.jpg" or whatever nobody says shit about it either. It's pretty much you making a deal out of it right now.
You mean giving up is not an option for you.
Yeah, that happens. A lack of self-control, is how I'd describe that.
No, that used to happen all the goddamn time, and it still happens even now sometimes.
Well, then it's their choice isn't it? Honestly, melan is probably used to getting "Fuck off melan" replies at this point.
People generally are just throwing that around. I don't think I've ever seen anyone guess OP correctly.
I guess it right whenever he gets defensive about thread politics.
That's because of generalizing. Hibiki posts = melan, Iori posts = Verty, Chihaya posts = anonp. Defending the thread = OP.
So? It's still not an option.
I'm sorry, but that's straight up victim blaming. Saying you love an idol is NOT a valid reason to be attacked. So saying that it's their fault is crazy. He got attacked despite not having done anything that warranted being attacked.
And besides, it's rude and not nice. You shouldn't be rude. You should be nice to people.
Sometimes it makes me wish they would post with a trip.
>Saying you love an idol is NOT a valid reason to be attacked.
They are still provoking it, even if only slightly. If they want it to stop they could just not attach a "I love you X" to every contribution they post.
I don't think that would do any good.
That's what happens when each idol doesn't have as many posters as they used to.
Why would I want to post with a trip when this is an anonymous image board? You'd just complain every time I posted.
So that I can filter you like I already filtered kai and Verty.
That's still victim blaming. They aren't doing anything wrong.
I don't even post that often, it's just you claiming other people are me.
Of course they aren't. Yet most people rather see bestiality or rape then a "I love you Hibiki"
Hi OP, still mad that our bestiality discussion didn't get deleted?
Yeah. That's why you gotta report people saying horrible things like that.
To be fair I post about Miki pretty much every day. I'm pretty horrible.
How come you only defend Melan?
Do you post nice things about Miki or mean things? If it's nice things, then you are a good person and I want to see you post more.
Reporting has proven to do nothing, and they will just continue it somewhere else if any.
I've yet to be banned in the past 2 years for shitposting on /@/, so this is true.
Because I'm talking about the last general we had on /a/.
That was a fun thread.
Actually, I'm pretty sure the reason why reporting seems to do nothing is because the board is super-active around news years. The average time a thread lasts from bump-to-death right now is under an hour during daylight hours. That's waaaay faster than normal. They are swamped with reports, so they aren't as effective.
Why do you shitpost though?
Only nice things. She's awesome.
I, for one, am proud to have finally made OP see that the threads should move to /vg/. It took a year and a half of hard work, but it finally paid off.
It totally was.
Yeah, no. They're exactly the same, just in a different place.
Why not if the opportunity arises? It's not like it takes much effort, just follow the wave.
Why do you enjoy seeing everything be horrible though?
It's not horrible to them.
Because it's hilarious how easily /@/ can destroy itself or fall into silly fights. It's free prime time entertainment.
Because it upsets people? And that's bad. You should be nice to people. Being nice to people makes them happy. And when people are happy, nice things happen, like discussion and stuff. Why come to the iDOLM@STER generals if you don't want discussion?
Oh shush with your stupid "be nice". You're like those stupid moms crying over cyber bullying. Pro tip: you can turn off your computer or close the page when you don't like something.
lel lets go invade /vg@/
Are you serious?
I can pick OP out like a needle in a haystack.
>Why come to the iDOLM@STER generals if you don't want discussion?
They do, just a different kind then you like.
I hate to break this to you, but iDOLM@STER threads are not yours. They are iDOM@STER threads for iDOLM@STER discussion, not your own personal shitbox to play in.
It's /v@g/ you faggot.
They're your threads, we know. Why not just make another thread if you don't like it? One for shitposting and one for discussion.
You're right, it's not my personal shitbox. It's everyone's personal shitbox, I'm sorry if I acted as if I owned the thread. Sorry guys!
Well this one is for meta.
They are not my threads.
They are iDOLM@STER threads, for iDOLM@STER discussion. Not for only the things you wanna talk about, and not for off-topic stuff you wanna talk about. They are for on-topic iDOLM@STER discussion. If you can't handle that, get out. They are not for anyone to use as they wish. They are for iDOLM@STER.
He says you guys always get it wrong.
Go back to /vg/ with your broken record already, I already read this same post there like 3 hours ago.
iDOLM@STER > Hibiki > Hibiki's pets > Bestiality
It's only meta because the posters wanted it to be.
Of course he'd say that.
>Not for only the things you wanna talk about, and not for off-topic stuff you wanna talk about.
No wonder the threads were no fun allowed once you came in. Nice job destroying a community around two years ago to this date. I pity the people who came after you did.
You guys seem to be getting a little at upset at discovering that the whole world doesn't revolve around you.
That first year really was the best. Many contributors, a lot of work getting done, everyone having fun. And then the no fun police came along.
And contributors started taking names.
You're the one that sounds pretty upset, mate. I'm just sitting here watching you act like an overprotective mamma while I watch Golden Time.
I think there's only like 3 that hasn't taken a name at this point.
And people started calling contributors by names in the threads. I blame mobage for making us use names in those threads to trade with each other.
And so it comes back to this. Now that I think about mobage brought along a lot more trouble than the general could handle.
Did you check out White Album 2 last season as well?
You are what happens when a pussy discovers irl he gets punched in the face when trying to start shit.
Are you serious? That's how been from the start. Off-topic discussion like "What tea are you drinking" or "What other anime are you watching" were shunned. iDOLM@STER threads are for iDOLM@STER, not for you. Not for your personal vendettas. Not for your sexual fantasies. They are for iDOLM@STER.
That first year was filled with endless Break dumps and bitching about every single topic imaginable. Don't try and pretend that keeping things on-topic is what led the threads to how they are today. What led the thread to how they are today were people attacking others for fun, or shitposting because they were bored. Because they believed they had the right to use the thread for anything and everything they wanted. But the threads were never for them. They were always for iDOLM@STER.
No, people started giving them names.
No, the problem was MediaFire. It didn't used to identify who uploaded something. Now it does. Had we known what the effect would be, we would've mandated that people set their MediaFire name to Anonymous.
Yes, I loved it and discussing it with /a/ every week was pretty fun.
>Had we known what the effect would be, we would've mandated that people set their MediaFire name to Anonymous.
It's funny because one contributor did just that.
To be fair the threads were okay when it was separate, it only got really bad when the anti gaijin thing happened and the mobage threads started to die.
>No, people started giving them names.
There have been contributors who posted their contributions with a trip.
>That first year was filled with endless Break dumps
Dude that only lasted through August.
That's good to hear. I had almost passed it myself for thinking it was a sequel at first but I really hope it gets another season to adapt the rest.
And we'd agreed early on that tripping when contributing was okay.
Honestly, I don't know what exactly it was that kicked everything into shitposting overdrive. It was late 2012 and I'm not sure what caused it.
>No, the problem was MediaFire. It didn't used to identify who uploaded something.
What are you talking about, yes it fucking did. The thing was that people didn't link folders back then so names didn't actually show up. That's how you can see names on MF, by linking folders or files from the same account in one single link.
Filtering people shows just how much of a coward you are. kai doesn't say anything wrong, Verty(me) funs around a bit, but if you look at his posts he mostly just discusses anime.
It's like you're shielding your eyes from a monster that doesn't exist, huddled in your bed in your pajamas, the type of pajamas that have footsies.
Around the time melan came to the threads.
So multiple can have Anonymous, neat.
When Melan starting acting like a faggot it got everyone riled up over names.
Bitch, I've had my MF account since before I started contributing to /a/, I wouldn't change the username just because of your whiny asses.
It was thanks to him this hating contributors thing really started. Not directly at first but we really should have never dragged him here.
It didn't used to display names on folders, actually. The only way you'd get a name from a folder was by hitting "Add to my MediaFire" or whatever.
No, Melan was the victim, and he didn't do anything wrong. I still cannot figure out what it was that got him attacked.
He was the victim at first but he was just as bad at one point. He seems to have improved since and that's good for him.
>ignoring shit you don't like the mods always recommend you to is being a coward
Please tell you're not this retarded. Oh wait, you're Verty, of course you are.
Yeah we turned him into whatever he is now.
And suddenly, alpacas.
He didn't do anything wrong though. It's easy to blame the victim, but it wasn't his fault.
Actually, I'd say it's mostly the fault of that guy who started that "Paperfag" bitching. He riled up attacks against contributors for seemingly no reason. Why hate someone for working on manga and doujins, for gods sake?
To this day I still think that whichever retard told him about these threads made a mistake punishable only by being shot.
fuck off. This is a met@ thread
People don't like contributors because they bring drama and they think they attention whore too much.
Oh god fuck you for reminding me of him. That guy was mentally ill.
The paperfag thing came after Melan.
Is this WUG rip-off?
They sure look very similar.
I like you
Wasn't that Lazorgunn?
But niether of them do anything wrong. There's literally no reason to dislike kai other than he uses a trip and has shit taste. Verty just posts normal shit like everyone else.
You sound like a big dweeb.
It's the other way around buddy. I like both series. Looking forward to the new episode in a few hours.
Well, then lazorgunn fucked up big time. I swear, our contributors make some of the stupidest decisions sometimes. How could you not see how stupid of an idea was to bring someone who was not familiar with 4chan into one of the most elitist threads on /a/?
The 1-bit whore dude?
You can bet he's still around and starts shit whenever he can.
Is it even possible to bring the generals back to a similar state or will people just agree it's far too gone and it's easier to shitpost all day?
I think melan once said he used to browse /jp/ before coming to /@/. But yes some of our contributors make the stupidest mistakes.
You know I don't get all this hate and arguing on each other.
Isn't everyone who comes to Idolm@ster threads somehow interested in Idolm@ster?
Why do people have to hate so much on each other?
Aren't we all interested and here for the same thing?
I'm pretty sure he's also the one who labeled all the contributors as the "TL Lobby", which ended up being a banner used to decry all contributors and start insane conspiracies.
Well, then I don't know what the fuck. although I just found a mention of him referring to "tlshit" as if translating things is a bad idea. Now I suspect that he was a coherent japanese speaker, upset that his precious franchise was becoming accessible by "non-japanese speakers". Dear christ...
Again, victim blaming. Also, he wasn't an outsider. He'd been on 4chan for years, he just hadn't been in the iDOLM@STER threads.
Fuck I wanted Azusa to have her long hair again.
>Isn't everyone who comes to Idolm@ster threads somehow interested in Idolm@ster?
You'd think so, but that doesn't seem to be the case. If you're wondering about the hate thing it wasn't always this way but naturally things tend to decline over time no matter what people do.
MIKI A SHIT
It was pretty obvious when he came to the threads that he was a newfag. Any experience he had before was not enough to keep up with how /a/ is.
Because of people like these >>100403435 >>100403469 >>100403518
Who are selfish and act purely for their own entertainment, rather than for the sake of the whole.
Yeah, iM@S is a huge WUG ripoff, I don't even know how they get away with it.
I honestly think it was because you guys dragged out that shit too long and let the shit fester. IM@S general should be the poster child of why generals for anything that's not currently running is a bad idea.
We have a share of loveless, bullied kids with pent up anger and stuff.
Again can only do so much with reporting them, but when something outnumbers you there's nothing you can do.
I agree completely, but our current OP is dead set on having these things all the time.
His biggest mistake was trying to reason with the haters/shitposters instead of just ignoring them.
Well, see >>100403476
I think the /a/ janitors are just really busy these days.
>act purely for their own entertainment
Yeah, that's the entire point of posting on 4chan, OP, we're not here for the sole purpose of keeping your threads that you decided to make, alive.
Same problem OP has. Some people just can't be reasoned with.
Which idiom@ster to fap too?
At least OP's posts are entertaining to read. Seriously, some of the shit that comes out of him would be great to watch live spoken.
4chan doesn't exist for you though. It exists for everyone. The world doesn't spin around you.
And stop randomly accusing people of being OP.
Again? But I've done her 3 times
melan has had his moments as well.
I wouldn't say they're entertaining to read after the first time. When you've seen it once you've seen it all with him.
Yukiho needs a man.
You might try with Yayoi or something.
Go for that color collection if you haven't before, that one's great.
/a/ does whatever the fuck /a/ wants, and I am /a/, and so are all of us.
There doesn't exist a good or fapworthy im@s doujins
Therefore I have never done so at least not outside my dreams
Which one? ASGO?
I think that was the artist name, yeah.
The one where Ryou gets hard after getting his face shoved in Ritsuko's hairy armpit is pretty good
Literally no redeeming fetish feature on her
>There doesn't exist a good or fapworthy im@s doujins
No for real, what?
She has a nice dress.
>sexualizing taking over meta
I don't enjoy it, but you guys always say yukiho, so it's always yukiho. Why come its never miki?
I'd link you some doujins but you're some retard from /v/ and posts /v/shit so you're not worth the trouble.
Miki's too easy to go for.
Well, look at it this way. We like soiling pure girls. Yukiho's image color is white, because she's supposed to be pure as snow. There's an appeal to that. I myself have fapped to Yukiho doujins hundreds of times each year, I'm just sharing the love. If you want something different and don't mind loli, go to sad panda and use the tags kaniya idolm@ster yayoi
At least it's on topic.
If you need top be told to do Miki, you won't be doing Miki.
Where's your fucking initiative?
Because Miki is a generic blonde who only nips like because they've never seen a blonde hair in their shitty life.
I don't even like yukiho.
It's not about that. It might just be masturbation to you, but to me it's a way of doing an activity and spending time with everyone here
But Miki only dyes her hair.
Is that so, nano
Brilliant image fuckup.
You could still do Miki, in lieu of that shared love.
Yeah and after she stops dying it, giving her a shred of possibility of maybe being attractive, she cuts her hair off, removing any possibility of being attractive for at least 2 years.
It takes me only 4 months to grow Miki-length hair.
But you can't do someone with their dress on, in which case you're more interested in a set of sewn clothing rather than the undeveloped, pure body wearing it
That is a pretty Miki.
But she fucked it up.
Funny thing is originally they were planning that.
You don't grow 2 feet of hair in 4 months dude what are you smoking, you grow like 4 inches.
I haven't watched this show yet, only came here occasionally since the past year to see kawaii stuff
Is this something that I'll end up regretting on my deathbed?
Despite having downsides like Hibiki being majorly shafted, the anime is pretty good. Though, you'd be doing yourself a bigger favor if you played IM@S, but IM@S 2 is easier to get ahold of since IM@S released on Xbox. You could also try the PSP games. They're pretty good.
>there will never be an episode about Hibiki's fierce and competitive side or her troubles with her brother at home or her obsession with Yayoi, only her forever looking for animals
The games are boring
Go watch it and then play the translated PSP games. Chihaya a cute.
Depends on your perspective, but I thought they were pretty good. My only complaint would be how hard Bamco jews out DLC.
You gotta work for what you desire. Once you go through story mode once then you can play free mode and that's where you get the bulk of the idols' stories.
I like the music the best.
Oh right and here's some story intros for each idol besides Miki Takane and Hibiki.
That's great and all, but the games are the main source filled with info. Also the anime and manga should never be ranked above the games, they just can't compare.
>anime and manga should never be ranked above the games
They're not better. The anime has various problems which would be too long to list here, and the manga are mostly spinoffs and or based off the game. The anime manga was one of the most dull things I've read.
>only her forever looking for animals
And yet it's a big part of whom Hibiki is. Her pets are part of her family, and she cares about her family a lot. Which is bit of a common Okinawan culture.
And her "obsession" for Yayoi is because she looked like a hamster to her, and that was pretty much only in Yayoi's route in SP.
As for her troubles at home with her brother, that was already dealt with back in SP. She called him up after she lost the awards and they cleared things up between them, she then decided to not give up and show everyone back at home what she's capable off. Funnily enough in 2 she still has that "I'm not going back to home until I've become an top idol", though she does call/text with her friend Arisu and she writes letters to her mother.
And in her true end she decides to go back home and help out at her family inn. She then doesn't want to return back to Tokyo because she is waiting for the guy next doors to come back from a business trip so she can properly thank him. She then sort of forces Producer to stay with her in Okinawa and help out at the inn as well, one of the things he has to do is pick up costumers because he has a drivers license. I think that reason for staying is kind of stupid, but that's Hibiki for ya. But there is a deeper meaning behind it. Hibiki also says she wants to be more sexy, because in that year time she has grown.
That doesn't work anymore with image prefetching.
>Once you go through story mode once then you can play free mode and that's where you get the bulk of the idols' stories.
Wait what? I quit after finishing story mode. I didn't think there was actual stuff in free mode.
Works fine on my side
Better get on that. SP's story is really short, the idols also have their own solo stories which was ported from the arcade game to the xbox to SP. There's a few xbox 360 only ones, mostly day off ones. There's also a few SP only commus.
>mentioning one manga out of a dozen
TWIAO is more enjoyable than the games. CD USED to be before Chihaya and Haruka ruined it. Puchi is great.
All better than the games.
But we'll have to agree to disagree.
I'm secretly hoping that the last spot in imas channel is for a idolmaster twin pack port with Hibiki and Takane added, but I know it won't happen. Someone had talked about wasting the DS models earlier, but at least those showed up in the game unlike Takane and Hibiki.
Then you don't have image prefetching turned on.
spoilered for being not safe for humanity
>not liking Awakened Miki
You are worst kind of scum.
I like summer Afu better
Why would you want to waste bandwidth?
Alright, I'll mention my thoughts on all of the ones I've read even though we'll agree to disagree.
Did a pretty good job with the idol pairings and it's a shame the art couldn't match the writing quality.
Had to mess around with the characters a bit but if you could put that aside it was a pretty good story otherwise.
Too slow, too loosely based on Chihaya's route but I enjoyed some parts. It might have been different had they been able to tell their whole story.
From what I've heard it was a straight adapation of the game route and I enjoyed it. Was waiting on NG and SR to be finished to read those two.
It had an interesting premise but I'm not up to date with it.
The first two volumes were okay. Seemed the author didn't know what to do after that.
It's enjoyable but there's only so much you can do with it and the jokes can get old.
I had expected better from the writer, the manga looks like it was straight from anime story boards but at least the art is better than most. The story is very dull and predictable and doesn't go into very interesting things since it's limited by the anime time line.
In terms of favorite spinoff material that would have to go to talk tracks and drama CDs.
Wouldn't that be SP but ported to the PS3? That could be possible, the PS3 can run PSP games. Or maybe IM@S1 with Takane and Hibiki having their own routes, or L4U with Takane and Hibiki. That would be fucking awesome.
For one thing, I don't have a bandwith cap, second, you see how your thumbnails all look like complete shit?
You probably don't because you're used to it.
But with the prefetching, the entire thread looks 1000X better than without it. And you just mouse over an image and it instantly pops up. Yeah why would I not do that.
I was referring to
>Or maybe IM@S1 with Takane and Hibiki having their own routes, or L4U with Takane and Hibiki.
As the twin pack before had included both.
Yeah, that would be nice.
I wonder why they went through the effort of making Takane and Hibiki models, designing their vision 1 costumes, but then never using them?
>not liking Miki
Worse than Hitler,
I like Miki although it wasn't always that way thanks to the anime version.
Because they were prototypes, they probably designed them and didn't include them. Things like that happen a lot.
I'm glad they did decided to put them into existence though, cuz they are both fantastic characters.
I am glad they included them since they were designed from the beginning, but I think the difference between them and Miki and the mobage girls is they felt like they belonged with 765 pro. As for Miki even though they hadn't planned her from the beginning they made sure to give her extra focus with that special Awakened route and all. I had seen those vision 1 images before and forgot that they weren't supposed to be with the other idols because they blended in so well. That's not to say that couldn't change, but that's just my thoughts on it. I understand that adding more idols appeals to more people, but I think that in these kind of series it's better to focus on a few a lot than many a bit.
That's why I see CG and ML as a separate thing, and just enjoy whatever material of 765pro they spew out. Hibiki and Takane only missed out one game and are one-two years younger then the rest of 765pro. I also feel that their 961pro back story was pretty nice, and they really feel as part from 765pro since the beginning.
I'd say Station has also increased their popularity quite a lot. Especially since it happened around the SP era, kind of gluing things together. That's what I like a lot about iDOLM@STER, there are different "universes" yet they all come together in a way or another.
I agree, that's also what I think. Technically three games, but one was a port. I think what they did as having them as rivals was good as it made people want to produce them, but I think they should have been more like you unlocked their free routes after beating story mode for each of them. Like with RK and Ritsuko in S4U kind of.
Yeah Station was pretty great and showed that even though they were rivals they could still act as close friends. Well most of the universes anyways. I wish the material was a bit more balanced in focus, but at least each idol has their own routes.
I waited for her to pop in my face, shivers ran up my spine, but she didn't.
Yeah, I would have loved to Produce the more sassy 15 year old Hibiki.
More so since the end of the SP stories seemed to have them joining 765 anyways. We still have OFA, but I have a feeling SP era Takane and Hibiki won't come back.
Why would I lie to you? Personal differences obviously.
I grow a full Russian beard in a week and a half, too.
I think she has the fattest and cutest hands.
Seriously, those hands are SO cute.
It was still the wrong thread 2 years ago.
Yeah, they won't come back. Although Hibiki is still comparative, like she goes pretty 15-year-old-sp-Hibiki against Touma in her route.
I wasn't implying that puchis aren't allowed here just that post was meant for the general going by the post number.
You just replied to a 2 year old post nigger, I wasn't implying that you were say-
So why do you think Hibiki's at an art museum in this image?
Yeah the joke went over my head, sorry. Have a Takanya.
Well going by her speech she's probably there for a job she has to do. Unless she took a sudden interest in art, or just passed by and went to take a look inside.
Yeah I'm not really sure if these are supposed to be work scenes or day off scenes. I think it's supposed to be the latter as they mentioned wanting to focus more on the idols' personal lives. Really hope we'll get a new song set, it'll be fun to listen to all of those new versions.
THE IDOLM@STER WEEK starts in about a day. Rev up your JP proxy, you just need it to login.
Real 765 (What)
New songs would be really nice too, I personally can't wait for the person life stuff.
I'll probably end up using a proxy for the events if they don't end up restreamed. Someone suggested streaming the episodes subbed instead.
The day off commus were some of my favorites so I'm glad they've decided to go in this direction.
is it digital to home movie or just in theaters?
It'll be in theaters with a BD release later, probably around 6 months or so. Supposedly an anon was going to cam rip it for us, but we'll have to wait and see if they deliver.
okay, is camrip 100 times better than bdrip?
No, it'll be much worse depending on how it's done but it'll help with the waiting gap that is waiting for BDs.
Yeah some of my favorite chapters had both of them in it, like the one in your gif. I'm looking forward to season 2. A lot of people seem to use Takanya images around other places.
ok, so camrip is definitely the superiror quality choice for anime fans.
Because Takanya speaks the truth
Camrip is like speed subs for rips. It's much quicker, but lower quality.
I want to prefetch Mikimiki.
I miss Clammy and Haato.
Clammy is in /kuku/ last I heard and Haato is still around although I'm not sure if they post outside of contributions still.
I think Nanami's personality is closer to Iori.
old and busted
No wonder she's least favorite then.
Minami a best
This is an idolmaster thread.
There's also an im@s named Minami
CG a shit.
But still im@s
Implying anyone cares, when theres just 4 hours left until WUG episode. Its not even Love Live for fucks sake..
It's had a general for years, I'd say that counts for something. I like WUG too, but you can enjoy both you know.
Here, I care.
Dream Club gets anime. Its over, IM@S is finished.
What does dream club have with imas?
IM@S clone that beat it in popularity and sales.
You mean the original iM@S ripoff?
Clammy isn't in /kuku/ anymore.
Custom Maid Online more popular than IM@S games anyway.
I kind of... don't care about it.
>I kind of... don't care about it.
Welcome to last year's "idol wars". General went on without caring. They've been trying harder this year to force the "idol wars" I admit but it helps some people actually like the opposing series as well this time.
just like in the good old days
There is no.. Idol Wars.
LL is just better than IM@S, it was undisputed fact, so there were not much "warring". AKB was shit no one but Kawamori fags caread bout , least of all AKB fags. Aikatsu is always in background.
To each his own, I suppose.
CG went from something almost everyone played until the anti gaijin days, then to hated once the mobage threads started dieing, then the haters got pushed out until only people who liked it were left and then they merged and took over the general, the end.
Those are a lot of words to say that CG saved /@/
If by saved you mean ruined then you are correct.
hon hon hon
lel, so fucking delusional and ignorant of the last few years.
Whatever you say, verty.
Guess it's morning time /a/ now. I'll miss you night time /a/.
Love you every time, Harukasan.
These are puchis, worm.
Property of Her Excellency.
>Dream Club gets anime.
Got me excited for a minute there.
