What the fuck happened?

A show needs focus and characters to call "the main characters." It's a shame the CG failed at making two of the three main characters likable.

Weirdly enough, I watched Cinderella girls not for the idols, but for the Producer.

A-1 fucked up like they always do lately. Rin and Mio aren't even that bad in the original games, but current A-1 philosophy has them thinking they need to add pointless often hackneyed melodrama to everything in order to make it "more interesting" hence Mio's whole terrible subplot that didn't even make much sense.

I'm really happy my favorite idol got a good amount of screen time.
>>
>>138654506
>What the fuck happened?
The usual. Being an anime that was commissioned and made mostly to advertise something specific.
Which in this case is the mobile games, where your only guaranteed idols are either Rin, Uzuki, or Mio, whom you pick at the beginning (and tutorial Miku, in the case of the original mobage).
Thus, it was mandated that they would necessarily need to have more relative screen time than the others by the end.

The 2011 anime, similarly, was made to advertise Idolmaster 2, in which you could select any of the 13 idols from the beginning.
Thus it was mandated that each idol necessarily have at least one episode of focus to themselves and a relative balance of screen time.

I use the term "perfect" broadly, she's still got the whole Russian into Japanese thin, and even though she's shown to be able to do anything, A-1 at least shows that she works and trains hard to be able to perform well and speak Japanese better, she puts effort in being perfect.

So much this.
It should have been about Mio and Positive Passion.
>>
>>138654506

I have no idea what you're talking about, at most like 1/3 of the show was focused on them. Every other group got at least two episodes.

>>138657329
The first series still put much more focus on Haruka, Chihaya and Miki.

The [email protected] series just needs to avoid the melodrama and focus on light and fluffy episodes. Having an overarching plot is fine, and some conflict like President Kuro was okay. More slice of life and silly interacting between the various idols. This is a series that could actually pull off cakes doing cake things for an episode would be amazing. Just imagine an episode of Azusa, Kaede, Sanae, and the other cakes all hanging out, having drinks, and doing cake idol things.

The anime still did manage to make me appreciate all the other idols more, with the exception of Rin and Mio. I'd be down for more CG just to have a chance to see all the other girls. Guess it's on to Million Live, though.

You don't tease routines stating how:

>One almost quitting because
>Damn look at them practicing. They might be animating something damn good for the finale for everyone.

THE FUCKING FINALE WAS NOT EVEN WORTH THE WAIT.

Point being two units that took ages to create synergy still managed to develop better than NG did over the course of 3 drama arcs and possibly more than 7 episodes.

>>138661802
I was looking at units that haven't blended well initially, Love Laika were pretty much "the right way", acting as the foil to most of NG's failures, eg NG's mini live vs LL's, Rin's explanation to join Krone vs Anya's, Mio's vision of being a leader vs Minami.

Yes that fucking frame rate as well.

There were no even proper shots of good animation, lots of wide shots of glowing sticks. Lots of time when the camera was swinging the whole stadium and almost can see any animation happening. What the fuck.

That's why even if the Love Live movie had lots of 3d for the dances, at least you can see the fucking routines.

Sasuga A-1.

Don't get me wrong. The first series was fine. Except for the damn movie. Cinderella Girls though, for me was trash.

Except when you have 13 main characters, it feels like there are no main characters. It just doesn't work, you can't share that much screen time between characters and expect a show that flows. Love live did a better job of not trying to focus on every character at the same time and as a result ended up having a better story
