Did Yamakan conquer the idol industry yet?
Hibiki a slut
GeroGero Kitchen was great
Previously, on iDOLM@STER Thread...
Oh girls you so silly
Nu and Harami a dorable
I want to burn the Rankonomicon.
It feeds on flames. Good job.
Don't burn the Rancononomicon.
Every thread has Hibiki shitposting.
Can I see what's in it?
>not Chie OP
When will they do a Gero Gero Kitchen with the ML VAs?
I want to douse it in water and have the pages stick together and the ink to run.
I want to fuck Yayoi.
I want to critique Ranko's drawings and tell her she should quit while she's ahead.
Are the Million Live Talk Tracks actually good for setting a better character for the ML's or are they kinda forced like the CG ones?
I want to rape Hibiki
god damn it Putin, let me get the 1st place the last day
Why is Haruka annoyed?
What did I do?
Maybe it's about something you didn't do.
Hugs for Ai, Eri, and Ryou.
They are pretty good to get to know the characters.
And then Makoto would try to takes off her clothes to prove she's a girl and still fails
Headpats for sad Haruka.
I'd say they are a pretty damn enjoyable representation of the characters.
It's interesting though, because people have mentioned that Kana on the CDs seems drama-proof, yet she's dramatic in the anime.
How are the CG ones forced?
The talk tracks are kind of dull on the first two LTPs, but they get really fun after that.
Oh shit Eriko and Mingosu what are you doing
Run Lo run
That's not chocolate.
Stay dorable Emily
Is Rio keeping the chocolate in her cleavage? I love that woman.
I want to fuck Emily.
How did Emily get so high in the ML rankings anyway?
Maybe forced isn't quite the right word
In the Puchi tracks everything feels like i'm just listening in on the characters, they flow and feel like natural conversations and establish personality through smaller lines and such
In the CG ones it feels less natural and more like they are trying to just push me into liking them, I understand that the CG ones actually take place in a situation where the idols are supposed to do that, but I just don't enjoy it as much personally
I'm not saying this is 100% true though, Ranko's and Kaede's are both quite good
Basically, "Do the ML's feel like characters in the talk tracks or do they feel like dull gimmicks Namco is trying to make you fall in love with?" would be a better way of wording it
She wasn't very interesting on the CDs. Her strength, in that she's a sheltered girl, should've been exploited by putting her up against an idol who is more wild, but they didn't do so because they didn't know what the hell they were doing with the first two albums.
She loves Japan. japan loves to be loved.
The first two are like that sort of, because the majority of the albums have the character apart and not conflicting or interacting in interesting ways, when you get to Chihaya's it gets a lot better
I love you Hibiki
Koume is an idol!
A very cute idol!!
They kind of pushed her hard at the start, with her being in promotional material, having an early SR, and her VA appearing at events.
And she looks like a younger Eriko that's not evil.
I thought it was because Japan has a thing for blonde lolis
Fuck off you piece of shit, go back to working on ML.
new card when? Cool type deserves SR new cards
Is Emily even loli?
What? Hell no.
I found Mika's talk track to be pretty amusing, especially the part where she tries waaaay too hard to be "sexy". It tastes like ham, and it makes you want to facepalm yourself in embarrassment...and then use that same hand to headpat Mika in payment of her troubles.
Stop saying mean things about the idols.
She clearly wants it.
Fuck off melan.
Wanting to engage another person in consensual heterosexual monoamorous intercourse is a perfectly normal part of human nature, and doesn't make you a slut.
So please stop bullying the Biki. It's not nice.
But I'm not Melan!
I feel like MLs are a little less "gimmicky" than CGs. Maybe because they have less idols so they can afford to give more than a single trait to them, and the idols aren't only noticed for that single trait (for the most part).
The LTP albums didn't feel like they were pushing their traits, it just felt like the idols were interacting with each other while doing those silly challenges.
If we get more ML albums after they are done with the LTP series I hope we can see them interacting more naturally, without the challenges and without a crowd watching them. Like a daily life thing with the MLs.
That same sort of "casual interaction" happens on the Jewelries CDs for CG.
Yes you are.
Wouldn't Miki be better since that completes the Missing Moon?
Not that I'm complaining
The dressing room talk before the stage performances really help that. Oddly enough they were introduced in Chihaya's album.
Stop eating the bowel you dumb animal
Hey the guy that wanted to do a 720p version of the cinematic events, are you still working on that?
I'm still smarter than the thing eating the crockery
there's 3 types of interactions, the talk tracks for the fans that were on the CDs, the daily kife interactions that happened in jewelries and in some episodes and finally the producer-idol interaction that gets covered on most of the episodes.
She is evaluating the food before consuming it.
You're not as cute as Chihya though.
I've been wondering /@/, would you be comfortable with ML and CG continuing the franchise after the 765PRO veterans leave?
I wouldn't mind it much. I can't say I dislike a majority of the MLs or voiced CGs. They're nice girls.
CG could do with some polishing, though. A little less fanmade work made official. They also need to stop making more girls.
poor guy, at least he'll meet karen in the other world
I don't dislike the MLs or CGs, but I'm not okay with 765pro leaving.
So no, I wouldn't be comfortable with that.
Being smart is the only thing that really matters
>I've been wondering /@/, would you be comfortable with ML and CG continuing the franchise after the 765PRO veterans leave?
No, that's the point when I'm calling it quits.
There is a prophecy that foretells of a great war that resulted if the Great Ones leave
Making the RK girls unproduceable was bad enough, if they remove the rest of the idols it would be way over the line.
>CG vs ML thread
When does that ever happen?
No puchi fans?
the guy behind SCAMCO should be Chihiro
CG is insanely popular for a mobile phone game but it's a completely different franchise it's not about some group of girls being top idols it's about idol groups competing to be the cinderella girl,in the other hand MLs are pretty weak right now to be 765PRO succesors, Namco will have to use their forcing abilities until they are strong enough to continue the franchise(if they can).
But the VAs will have to leave eventually, time waits for no one.
>thing that really matters
There's no TWIAO or Jupiter fans either.
I remember something like that happening in the mobage threads when ML was just starting. I don't remember seeing it after that though.
never, there's no onlycg/onlymls fans in the west.
there's a lot of japs that are cgfans that don't know nothing baout idolmaster in japan though
I may be in the minority, but if the VAs have to leave, I'd rather the characters get new VAs, and stay.
After all, the whole point of drawing/cartooning/games is that we can ignore real life if we want.
Okay, that already happened with Yukiho. It can happen again.
It just takes some time to get used to it.
>no jupiter fans
and all of those kuroifaggots?
I like the CGs and I don't have nothing against the MLs and I have Precure, Aikatsu and Kancolle to fill their place
I wouldn't mind Makoto voiced by Kitamura Eri at all.
since Jupiter betrayed Kuroi
Jupiter != Kuroi
I want this melan person to leave the threads so people will finally stop shitposting about my waifu.
Hah, you think that would stop? Don't make me break that illusion of yours.
I'm pretty sure it will.
It won't, YOU would become the next target. Your ignorance is hilarious.
It might just be easier if you leave.
I would be ok with all of the Xeno VAs, to be honest.
>There's CGfans in Japan who don't know anything about iM@S
I think the same also applies to where I live. Everyone have a boner for Rin. Even my friend who have never touched anything iM@S related
>The concept of submitting to Ricchan
I'd like that ... wait, is Chihaya holding a knife?
Come back when you can actually contribute releases and then we might talk.
I'm not a tripfag so that won't happen.
Are you really this ignorant of how these threads are?
Ah so naive.
I like Kuroi yet I don't really care about Jupiter. What now?
Because of him there is shitposting he doesn't deserve a girl like Hibikin.
It hapenns her too.
namco finds a way
Because of you, there is meta right now you don't deserve Hibiki.
Is this the Chihya thread?
You do realize you are doing the exact same thing?
it is not hard to tell people apart sometimes, even without trips.
I deserve her more than some tripfaggot.
I can't imagine Yayoi with her Xeno VA at all. Unless they did a 10 years timeskip only for Yayoi.
No! This is the Ranko thread! Get lost!
No not really. You're both tremendous faggots. The difference is that the faggot that's been with us for a year and a half isn't useless whereas you're completely useless.
He's not a tripfag
I'm not a faggot, I want people to stop shitposting about my waifu because of some faggot.
People say his name all the time.
Because he's a contributor and that's his name on IRC. If you keep this up people are just going to shitpost more
People say his name all the time because back when he first showed up he had a trip, which he dropped after people started to tell him to fuck off. And yes, you're a faggot. I don't like Melan and think he should fuck off, but in all honesty at least he's useful to get new shit.
Wrong! It's a Uzuki thread.
Do you know what a tripfag is?
Don't you all ever get tired of complaining about the same thing?
Of course not.
Azusa is so smart.
Just because he is a contributor doesn't make him worthy to love her. It's because of him people are shitposting about such a lovely girl.
Azusa is beautiful and always smart.
It's statements like these that make me sometimes wonder if people in this thread have ever been on the internet before.,
Those fucking subs. I still have nightmares about them.
And I believe the DVD specials were not even subbed.
Azusa, why didn't you save him from wizardhood?
More importantly, what are you doing to prevent your impending witch-hood?
Keep talking and people will start the bestiality talk again.
Yes and soon it will be because of you. How do you propose we stop people shitposting about her?
Think again pleb, this is a Kanako thread.
Eat cake bitches!
I want to eat Kanako's cake.
I mean I want to fuck her really.
I'm sure people will stop when melan is gone.
No they won't because they'll know you will get mad at it.
They won't. They really won't and if you honestly believe that then you're deluding yourself.
It would help if you left.
XenoAzusa is a nice lady
yippe poe poe motherfucker
I can't be the only one who really misses long hair Azusa.
How could you mistake Kanako with Kaede? Clearly this is the Alcoholics Anonymous thread.
They won't know if I don't reply.
It would still be less because they know melan is gone and they can't make him mad anymore.
Long hair is still remembered though, I mean all her recent figs include the long hair accessories
You obviously don't understand how these threads work. Your new is showing.
And the picture and link disappeared.
>They won't know if I don't reply.
You are replying right now.
The shitposting is his fault no matter what.
He doesnt deserve a girl like Hibiki.
more like hibiki is a shit no matter what
Shitposting existed before he came along, it's always been a natural part of /@/
I got into Idolm@ster because of her.
Why are Hibikifags always so shit? I don't think I've met a single one that isn't a drama queen.
Estimate on time till the next ML frameless pack is compiled?
We are not, only Melan is a drama queen.
Kaede be my bunny honey.
Wasn't it compiled just a few days ago with the space idols cards?
Why not both?
I feel she'll be upset if I take her cake and eat it too.
He caused more shitposting to happen.
You're turning out to be a bigger one going by this thread.
I want tiny Hibiki to ride my dick all night long.
How tiny is Hibiki?
Airplane seats aren't that roomy
Hopefully they'll include a long hair piece with her figma.
152cm tall, and maybe they booked in business class or something.
I'm probably slow for only noticing it now, but all of the MLs on this event are also on the movie.
Hibiki is such a tiny slut
Makes my dick rock-hard.
>Afford business class flights
Hamzou is taking up the arm rest
Hibiki isn't wearing shoes
3 hours in the air, 3 hours left
I want to sit with Iori
I want to pleasure myself in the bathroom with Mami but Ami is distracting her
Yayoi should be sitting in coach but is sitting in first class, why?
I'll never fly again
And they are also making a movie there.
I think it was kind of the point.
It surprises me Broducer didn't just ravage Hibiki right there on the spot.I wouldn't be able to resist if I was him.
5 feet even for you Americans and Olde school British.
Actually I just now noticed it too now that you pointed it out.
She is such a tiny little baby.
So she can't even ride all the rides at the amusement park. How tragic.
she can still ride stuff
What are Iori and Mami doing in the toilet?
She can ride my dick, that should be good enough for her.
Imagine her making that face and her hair going up and down like that while she rides your dick in cowgirl position.
Thinking about that makes my dick rock hard.
I'm 1 foot taller than her and most of the other idols
I agree with Hibiki, those sky-drop rides are fucking terrifying. They're literally the only things at the amusement park I refuse to ride.
Poor Baba, she must never go to Manitoba:
> For your child’s safety, provincial law requires children to remain in booster seats until they are at least 145 cm (4’9”) tall
Where's it at on Yukipo?
I don't want my imus VA's to be replaced ;_;
This is the first one I ever went on.
Take her bunny pen?
>being a pussy
Sky drop rides are fun as fuck.
GIVE IT BACK!
I'd like the to see the Live Theater teams out on trips like the ones in the SF OVAs
You can never get it back.
>thinking there'll be an Azusa figma
By the time the entire CG and ML cast all have figmas, we might have a 3rd mainline girl figma, maybe.
Yes I mad, still extremely ass ravaged from last WonFes.
Nao puchi I love you
Mayu puchi please hurt me
well Chihaya sales can be reason enough to eventually get the other 765's
I honestly see the CG figmas as precursors so that the 765 figmas arent bad
I gave it some thought and I decided I will protect Hibiki from people like melan.
Never you little sl-Pffttt AHAHAHAHA, who am I kidding, Haruka can't be sexual, she just can't, I'm sorry Haruka.
are chihaya figs still on sale?
This is hilarious considering what he said in /mod/ that one time.
I'm still going to be bum blistered because we get our girls in ugly as shit luxury outfits meant to advertise million live while everyone else gets superior casual outfits with accessories relating to their personalities rather than generic mics and other stage related stuff.
I'd like to see some 5 minute short series with various MLs in it- an OVA with various short skits, effectively.
We'll probably see a new 765 main cast figure out this February. The upcoming Wonfes is almost here.
This, it also makes me angry because they dropped the ball with Chihaya, now the rest will have to match with her, which irritates me because I know GSC is just doing it this way so they can reuse molds and pump them out all quickly and cheaply where-as the ML and CG figmas all get custom molds...
It'll probably be Haruka to go with Chihaya.
then again look at all the variant figmas of sabers, haruhi characters, megucas
>an OVA with various short skits,
That'd be fun
Look in ghost.
I can only hope, since iirc they are officially referred to as "brilliant stage ver.", which means there will be variants.
Haruka wouldn't be so bad, as long as they give her a panicked tripping face. Anything for the fun factor.
There's a lot that can be done in a short piece- I mean, all the old Warner Bros cartoons were like that. We've got established characters, no need to take time out to set the scene. Just some action/fun and we're good to go.
For example, how about an animated version of the ML Pirate cards?
>an animated version of the ML Pirate cards
Brilliant! Make it a musical while you're at it
>as long as they give her a panicked tripping face. Anything for the fun factor.
I already plan to use Chihayas open mouth face to pose her with a little figma scale pistol in her mouth.
And the 765Pro casual clothes versions will be exclusives. GSC and SCAMCO can probably smell the despair while counting their money in their office
But they sell the exclusives at the GSC webshop now. That's how I got my Figma Rin and Mika
Guns are not food.
Unless they're made of chocolate.
I know, but knowing GSC most of the exclusives would probably be
- Casual clothes
- Special EXTENDED outfits
- Recolors upon recolors of the same outfits
We (along with crazy completionists) will despair while they count their money
He doesn't deserve her.
Neither do you.
Why? I deserve her way more then him.
Prove it then.
You're shitposting and derailing the thread.
Well, of the lot I'd only want the casual clothes, so it's not too bad for me. It just costs a bit more than the regular shops.
I'm not shitposting, I am not saying mean things about my waifu.
And he does?
I'm sure he does or is causing it to happen.
Then you're retarded.
She belongs to me, not to him.
Waifufags in a nutshell, gentlemen.
CG won't succeed 765, it is pretty much a completely separate product at this stage, more akin to Fate and Tsukihime, than say, Tsukihime and Melty Blood
Aren't they lovely.
What about ML?
Will they remain or go the way of DS?
They will probably just remain on their own mobage and might appear on the anime if it gets a new season.
I'm a bit surprised at how separate CG has become. I thought they'd use it as an "incubator" for new characters to add onto the main cast.
ML, on the other hand, seems to be so tightly integrated that I'd be surprised if we didn't see a couple MLs in Imas3.
But as noted, I've been wrong before.
Sometimes separate is good. it gives fans alternatives without over exposing the main characters.
>I'd be surprised if we didn't see a couple MLs in Imas3
Preferably not the ones from the movie
Fuck you, Kana a best
True enough. If anything, a "full" CG game would be nice, especially if it used different mechanics than the main series.
My guess is that Emily is a given. I don't know the popularity of the other MLs other than Pixiv rankings.
What're the pixiv rankings?
At least Emily would be a nice addition since she is pretty different from the other 765pro idols.
If they really do include some MLs on iM@s 3, I hope they get some of the most "unique" ones, and not just the popular MLs.
Maybe a CG and ML games for PS4 or Xbox1. I wouldn't be surprised if they made them for PSVita either or integrated them into iM@S Channel.
Considering the failure that was iM@s 2 on the 360 I won't be surprised if they never release another game for the Xbox.
More Theater translations when?
pixiv- a Japanese art site. It's a rough measure of popularity for a character among artists. You can see how many pics of a character have been made.
Well, I'm cheering for Baba and Rio.
I said ARE, not IS. I asked what are the rankings for the MLs on pixiv.
True, Xbox really messed that up. I was almost an Xbox player had it not been for Im@s2
KUROI PLAZA DOWN
Baba would be nice.
I'm not sure about Rio, the only thing I know about her is that she is really lewd.
Oh, my apologies. From an older thread:
Just looking at Pixiv, it's pretty dire so far. Here's the Pixiv art counts for every ML from two threads ago:
Toyokawa Fuuka - 129
Mochizuki Anna - 95
Suou Momoko - 90
Nagayoshi Subaru - 86
Tokugawa Matsuri - 85
Baba Konomi - 83
Yokoyama Nao - 78
Hakozaki Serika - 75
Nakatani Iku - 65
Handa Roco - 64
Makabe Mizuki - 56
Ibuki Tsubasa - 51
Tokoro Megumi - 50
Momose Rio - 48
Nanao Yuriko - 47
Matsuda Arisa - 44
Kasuga Mirai - 44
Maihama Ayumu - 42
Tenkuubashi Tomoka - 41
Shinomiya Karen - 39
Nonohara Akane - 37
Oogami Tamaki - 35
Takayama Sayoko - 34
Kousaka Umi - 33
Emily Stewart - 32
Fukuda Noriko - 31
Tanaka Kotoha - 30
Kitazawa Shiho - 30
Mogami Shizuka - 29
Julia - 29
Kinoshita Hinata - 25
Shimabara Elena - 25
Satake Minako - 25
Nikaidou Chizuru - 24
Kitakami Reika - 23
Yabuki Kana - 20
Miyao Miya - 11
Now here's the Pixiv art counts for a few random CGs:
Futaba Anzu - 5298
Takagaki Kaede - 2495
Mio Honda - 781
Yes, even Mio is more popular than ML.
Sachi has 4500, fakeNEET has her days counted
As expected of the cutest
Considering how old CG is, it is not that surprising though ... who am I kidding, ML failed so A-1 needs to deal with it
Also, which CG has the most in terms of Pixiv art count?
CG Pixiv ranking?
who the fuck puts the seaweed on the top?
Why is Anzu so high up there? Is she the ideal Japanese idol or something? We should have our own poll, Japan is a small representation. I'm curious what other idols different countries like.
>the city of ML
A..at least Julia's not on the bottom, r...right?
Miya... Mio... ;_;
It's a shame the separation though. Kinda like high school friends when they split up to do their own life things for and after college; Unless there's an opportunity to bring them together, you'll never get to see CG interact with 765, or even ML for that matter.
I don't have a problem with the camps being separate. 765 will always come first, and I've grown into quite the CG-lover, even with it's own independence. But at the same time, I feel like I've been missing out on the good in ML because of the separation. And I'm sure there are some that are heavily-invested in ML that feel somewhat left out of the CG fun for the same reason. But it's all still under the iM@S community; No need to feel like we're not family here.
It doesn't have to be an integration with the games or anything. Just something fun, like maybe some talk tracks or some songs, or even official artwork to acknowledge the collective iM@S universe. A continuity nod, if you will. Because who wouldn't want to see things like Julia and Natsuki getting together for a jam session. Or Uzuki and Haruka being normal with each other. Kaede and Chihaya doing a duet. Kanako and Yayoi cooking a buffet. Nana seeing what a real alien like Takane looks like. Kate and Emily being weeabos. Yuki, Minami, Subaru, Elena, and Akane all doing sports stuff.
...but you know...it'll never happen because SCAMCO.
Well, other than the ones listed above, here's a brief selection:
Rin has 3111
Koume has 2718
Ranko has 2654
Nana has 1619
Mika has 1347
Anya is hard to tell, because the tag is pretty common, and if you also include the CG tag, it misses some where that tag wasn't included.
>Kinda like high school friends when they split up
Except CG and 765pro were nothing like friends. Even before this supposed "split" they barely interacted (IF they interacted at all) and the 765pro idols were treated like shit in CG.
well done cute nerd
765 idols have 20 minutes of voiced lines in the game, after ML they stopped though.
Since that thread, Baba is up to 94 now.
Browpattin' on Nao
And a bunch of reused art for the cards because they can't go through the trouble of drawing new art for non-CG idols.
very cute design
Small steps at a time,
I see it as preserving the 765 crowd. With CG and ML they can take the pressure off 765pro, now the original idols won't go stale and risk going out of style.
They had to do something like this because everything that came out before was just a reinvention of the wheel with an introduction to the characters, wash, rinse, repeat. It started out with 765pro then they introduced 961 or Project Fairy then the new series was 765+961 and the introduction of 876pro where they tried to make a new generation replace the older one, that didn't fly well.
2nd Vision came along and just redid everything AGAIN, but this was their last chance. Some poor shmo down in the dungeon of Scamco gave them CG as a small project to find a new idol and look what happened. Now we have ML and CG plus Im@s3 (which is just another retelling of the original).
Nao will get a voice. She will pull through.
OrI'll dress up like a giant P and haunt the night forever.
>Mio Honda - 781
Mio is good girl.
curly deko, messi and akkey!
Too good for the filthy japanese taste.
MIO ALLIANCE ASSEMBLE
Well...yeah, that's a bad metaphor now that I think about it. 765's inclusion into the CG game was just to let people transition with something familiar, and were used more as an excuse plot than anything, since I think CG was always meant to be it's own separate thing since the beginning, idols shooting for the title of "Cinderella Girl" in some sort of competition instead of just being top idol and all. But it's still has existence in the overall iM@S universe, if you focus less on CG as a game and CG just being a collective group of characters.
The separation would like if Metallica and Megadeth no longer did anything with each other despite sharing one common thing. Although that's not a perfect metaphor since they really DIDN'T, egos got better and they later toured again. Scamco could do the same and put the families back together again. Maybe just not in the CG game.
But at the same time, CG's independence from 765 still gives it character. While ML has it's own thing going on, I feel like Scamco isn't letting them run their own show, what with them putting them next to 765 in EVERYTHING, as if they feel ML can't operate without 765 in the picture. It's rough shit all around.
japan likes mitsuboshi a lot, she'll get stronger with time

To mess with your OCD
kaze obviously does not suffer from OC or autism if the pattern is broken like that. Granted I can turn mine off at will, that just isn't even mathematically balanced.
Please don't bump the thread if you have nothing to discuss.
Someone please take Miki home.
Miki wants the P
I want the P too.
They still can't believe that a small idol search project would be successful, let alone multiply itself. The two guys who came up with the idea are probably rolling in money right now.
God I love Puchis.
Season 2 is gonna be so fucking good.
Mika wants P's P
Watcha reading Chibiki?
Huh, I got the Feb issue of Newtype (which had an im@s movie booklet) and I found an interview to an actual idol inside the booklet itself. I seriously didn't expect that.
Here they come, the imagedump fagots.
Crime and punishment.
everyone wants the P
Since we're talking about how things have shot off, I'm always quite surprised how known the CGs are with among Western anime fandom. I mean, most of them are likely to be secondaries and nothing more, but if you look at the comments on places like MFC or other such communities and people seem to have some vague idea or where they're from.
There's even a CG >tumblr which gets a lot of "reblogs" or whatever.
Could the phenomenom of idols in Japan be studied from a sociological perspective? what methodology would be more appropiate, what sources could we use and what conclusions are we most likely to reach?
Economics of the 20th Century: A Brief History
Chibiki's gonna get a job at Bamco in their accounting division.
Which CGs are the most popular on tumblr?
No idea, I don't care for that site. I've just noticed when I've been searching Google for pictures and whatever.
Huh. I wonder if there's any differences with the Idols popular here and the Idols popular elsewhere?
this is the last version of the pasta?
I want to know if Kaede has an episode
Let me learn you something.
Let me guess... the ones who fight for social justice?
Celsius or Farenheit?
Are there any?
So none of them?
Probably Anzu and Rin.
chiri and ako
What a lucky girl to be able to smell Odekobutt.
I want to grope all idols, all of them.
Her face was in there deep, taking a huge whiff of the Deko. I bet the smell was on her face for days.
why I shouldn't¡
YAY FOR RANDOM HIROKO
You're a cutie Chihya
Better watch it, Xenoglossia Haruka is a freak.
Robots, idols, the enemy, Chihaya, Desks, keychains, etc...
I bet if she were in 765pro P-san would have been run dry and the idols would be too embarrassed to even get on stage.
Guys please, this is serious, I want to know.
shut up and play the drums sammypoo
>what conclusions are we most likely to reach?
Yes, the first thing you need is a question to the problem.
Here is what I noticed, IRL Japan has problems with under population and sexuality in general. Idols are Japan's way of either coping with the problem by getting guys to interact easier with IRL girls OR driving the wedge further by making guys standards of a woman too high therefore giving up on them IRL.
Do your homework on your own.
You are showing lack of appreciation for
GREATEST LOVE STORY EVER TOLD
>stealing Natalia's banana
over the line
How are idols viewed by the population?
In our case 2D vs 3D, which are preferred?
How many people in your sample?
From where did you gather the sample from?
Socioeconomic factors play a part?
Culture of Shame a factor?
Is this a popular trend or fad that will eventually die out?
How many years has this been going on for?
When did it get noticed by larger society?
Why (to all questions answered)?
>Idols are Japan's way of either coping with the problem by getting guys to interact easier with IRL girls OR driving the wedge further by making guys standards of a woman too high therefore giving up on them IRL.
Seems like a made up correlation, unless that's what you want to prove, how are you going to support it? You shouldn't go on a research trying to prove your own hypothesis as true.
Idols can't love robots.
>Idols can't love robots.
Sure they can. And the robots can love them back.
Did you learn nothing from Xenoglossia?
Idols can love iDOLs.
Numbers don't lie.
When P fell into the hole and severely injured himself, Haruka used her earnings as an idol to save his life. Haruka didn't have enough money so got help from the military. She had the doctors and scientist put P's conscious and mind into a machine of war. She can now have her precious Producer live on forever but in exchange she sold her soul to the military-industrial complex.
It was really creepy when Imber started recording Haruka undressing on that scene.
I blushed when I first saw it, I think we had a two part thread on it. Chihaya was also batshit insane for Imber too and Yukiho was yandere for Chihaya.
You still have lot to learn, young one.
And an overdose of TRAITORS AND WHORES
Not that guy, but I think there is some sort of correlation. It may have to do with the obsession some otaku have for their idols to remain pure because they themselves have no experience to speak of.
im@s is good
Im@s is life
Major in anthropology and go live in Japan.
So is Makoto.
The problem with that theory is that many of those men never get near enough to a woman for "high standards" to act as a barrier.
If anything, it's more about the women. If they earn okay money, and their parents help out (many still live at home), then why bother getting married now, especially to some semi-nerdy guy (and become a housewife)? Why not enjoy life, and later on settle down?
And on the negative trend, it's hard for many men in Japan to get the high-earning jobs they need to support a decent married lifestyle.
Idols are more a symptom than anything else. Whole bunch of desperate guys with no chances- standards irrelevant.
I am majoring in Economics but I don't think a minor in the subject and foreign exchange time would be bad.
Love you and your fists of fury Makoto
Delicious Eri Kitamura voice too, don't forget that.
Love you and your fists of fury Makoto
fucking moot and kill la kill
I demand more of these Idols from the East!
I am your King and I gave you an order!
you gonna get hugged
It sure shows, Ryuuko.
I hope the other guy is enjoing his new Makorin.
someone took space idol wars too seriously
So how many of you have listened to all the Idolmaster songs
Satomi has big ______________
I've listened to pretty much every song at least a handful of times each. I don't remember most of the song names though.
So are Kana and Shiho the main heroine and villain of Space Idol Wars?
I didn't even know Roco and Matsuri were on this event.
Not even close, I have about 50 or so, and I know I am nowhere near all.
Shiho is Darth Vader; Kana is Luke. Hibiki is Obi Han.
>Nao on my team
Dammit, I'm screwed
Miku plays with her huge ______________
Green is the best side.
Why is Karen outside of both teams?
I didn't listen to all CG songs, but other than that yes.
collection of board games
"Oh, My" indeed.
Iori wants to _________ and __________ with you while _________ing you all day long.
Holy shit I want to fuck Ryou.
Well I want to do the same.
Iori displays poor situational awareness. Yes, someone is in fact in there and can see you.
Yeah, Yayoi's Xeno VA was way too different.
I have 76 songs + the ML albums to go, I also haven't heard the movie song yet but that is because I am saving it for the movie
So are any of the non-765 girls for heart yet or are they still all for fap
Or Shirley, Aika, Nina, Hibiki (Precure), Tenma
I keep several in my heart.
I'm due for a coronary any day now.
I never fap to anything im@s
Well they better get on it cause you know what they stay. A stagnant harem is a dead harem.
You forgot "for teasing".
"for teasing" is basically the same as 'for fap'
The daughterus are all for heart.
Baba adults are talking now
about fapping to you
Teasing, not bullying. There's a difference.
Haha look it the little kid! Are you mad, little girl? You gonna cry?
You don't really want to live without knowing the wonders of soiling Chihaya's perflat chest, do you?
Baba come over here. It's time for you to get some loving.
Baba pls go back to Moria
Of course, it's always teasing.
I want to be that kid.
Speaking of people who need to learn the difference between teasing and bullying...
Would you a drunk Baba?
I feel uncomfortable just thinking about Chihaya's delicious perflat being near me
I just don't fap generally, no insult to the im@s girls
Mika a slut
Nope, kids shouldn't be drinking and messing about
I would take care of her, then carry her to bed and watch over her until she falls asleep.
Put your trip back on, Mika.
Oh, you're one of THOSE creeps.
I'd let her take advantage of me.
Would I put her in a climbing harness and run her up a flagpole or an hour or two?
Kids shouldn't drink.
Holy shit! Hey kid, where the fuck are your parents?
I'm her father. Sorry for the disruption, I'll be sure to take her home and punish her immediately.
She is a pro. She will disrobe you, cuff you, and then you will be taken away by FBI
I wanna hang Baba up on a coat hanger and leave her there.
I could duct tape you to a wall too. You're small enough.
And will you see who salutes
but no-one ever does
megumi make me happy
A great prank to pull on Baba would be to wrap her body in cellophane. Then you can put her wherever you want.
Put her in the closet.
Lay her down in an expty bathtub.
Hang her up somewhere.
Leave her outside for the local dogs to pee on. The pee won't touch her, but she'll still get to feel the warmth down her leg.
That's not really a prank anymore, is it?
AmiMami, put your trip back on.
I bet you fools don't even have clue how you ended up here.
Yea it is. No physical was done.
If I let those dogs hump her cellophane wrapped body then yes that's pretty mean.
Hey guys, is the Im@s anime any good?
Nope. Go read Bre@k instead.
Give it at least 6 eps.
It's good as an introduction to the franchise.
Something about you Baba just brings out my desire to tease and bully the fuck out of you.
Have fun in brig.
Something about Baba makes me want to hug her.
Prime editing material.
Oh, I want to hug her. But I also want to tease and harass her.
I'm not being really mean. Mean would be Super Gluing her hand to a wall in a main area, then throwing a party in her honor.
So you're the one!
I want to superglue Haruka's butt cheeks together.
>Bulge covered by skirt
That's meaningless then
A butt is still a butt
Witches =/= Female Wizards
A female Witch is a Warlock. A female Wizard is a Wizard.
>rhymes with 'warlock' : acock
not again, 4chan.
>Iori being cute and sweet for once
That's more of a shock then a finger up your butthole.
I stared at that image for 15 minutes last night.
Nothing can be more perfect than that image and that scenario.
Kissin' on Megumi
And when I read it, I hear it in her voice.
You could be feeding her.
What does it say!
Something along the lines of "here, I'll give this to you, blah blah I dipped it in chocolate, hurry up and say "ahh" already!"
Yes it can. For starters, there could be an actual good idol in place of Iori.
God dammit, Verty.
Oh she's not that terrible. Even if you don't like her personality, she's still a arrogant, dfc ojou. That's good for at least something.
No it isn't. And flat chest is disgusting.
DFC is perfection.
Oh. I guess you're just a terrible person.
So then Chihaya is perfection?
u r a faget
She's not flat, she has a perfect perky pair of 77's. See.
Chihaya is flat.
I have listened to all CG and most of 765 songs.
chihaya is not DFC, just disgusting
Too small. She's disgusting.
At least Chihaya is cuter than Iori.
arisu voice/song/episode when
Hopefully never. She's gross.
Not me, but I've fapped to all of the good ones.
She so flat, she looks like a trap.
Your opinion is gross
Traps and DFC have different body proportions.
please don't insult traps
What if in another reality Chihaya dies instead and Yuu becomes a trap idol in her place?
Actually, that got me wondering. Seeing as Producer is shown returning from Hollywood at the end of the movie, that might mean TIMESKIP and MORE MLs JOINING 765pro!
SECOND SEASON AHOY!
Second season of Im@s written and directed by Gen Urobuchi
good, he always makes the boring bitches suffer.
Is Hibiki dead is every time line now?
Please. Second season written and directed by Sad Tomino
Her dog gets rabies and goes full Cujo.
Yukipo a ware
Urobochi can do nice, light-hearted stuff too. He's currently writing Kamen Rider Gaim, and there's only been like... 80 people killed within the first 15 episodes or so.
Mika please walk my way
Puchimasu season 2 written and directed by Gen Urobuchi and coproduced by Quentin Tarantino
Get a real hobby.
Nao watch out, your earphones are falling out of your pocket.
I wish I was Nao's hubby.
Nao, I am detecting a background reading of 1.43 microderes in your vicinity, spiking rapidly to 4.56 microderes.
>puchis are demons from hell
>P-san is some sort of slave trader
>Yukipo dies horribly so Gen can continue his quest to make all the girls who draw really cute shit cry
Kissin' on Nao
Don't touch me until you shave those disgusting eyebrows.
Good thing you don't exist so she can't touch you.
I know. I wouldn't want those disgusting eyebrow caterpillars anywhere near me.
Wait, how can you type if you're not real?
Cute Takane is cute. It's nice when she isn't be a Japanese Hungry Hungry Hippo for once.
Such mystery. Must buy.
Sure they do buddy, sure they do.
>from now, every time you fap to Chihaya
>you will see her as a trap
Love the midriff on that one.
Here's hoping OFA works out for her.
Ryou is more of a girl than Makoto.
CG now in korea
> - Copy
You must be new
I've fapped to oneof these girls more than you ever can
