First Episode Review for: iDOLM@STER
Summary : A fictional documentary about idols, 1st person from the reporters view point, thought you don’t hear the reporter talk (the rest of the characters do)
Animation : very nice, that kind of animation where the backgrounds are actually more detailed than the characters
Plot Potential: good, very much along the line of a reality TV show done with anime;
Characters: The first episode was all character introductions, so they are going for that angle and they have really tired with them , full marks.
Music: Strangly enough, not up to much, felt very ‘stock’
Overall: not quite my cup of tea (not a fan of reality TV or soaps) , but if you do like them then give it a shot
Disclaimer: These are mini reviews of anime that are fresh out in Japan and are not licensed in the UK, buy them once they have been licensed or at the very least buy the merchandise, remember if the anime makers make a loss, THEY WILL STOP MAKING ANIME!!
