Everyone wants Makoto as their husbando, but there can only be one waifu.
Talent agency sports festivals can only really happen in Japan and Korea where girl bands are aplenty, and god bless the genius who came up with the concept. There is nothing like seeing your favourite idols all hot and sweaty, since it also gives useless ones like Chihaya a chance to shine; Not that she did anyway. And to keep it to the theme of the this week's episode, here are highlights of my favourite moments:
I'm the loneliest
It's Kotori's 40th birthday today, have you wished her yet?
I heard there was a Gainax animator onboard for this episode, which probably explains this travesty. It's pretty funny considering Takane's bust size is virtually identical to Azusa's and they were kept firm and intact throughout the former's sprint. I'm guessing old people's disease got to Azusa again and she forgot to wear a sports bra. Not to be confused with Chihaya who didn't even bother putting one on.
Does Miura have to choke a bitch?
Only three things in this world is able to rile me up to no end:
1) True Tears
2) Rinko NTR
3) Making Yayoi cry
It is one thing to make fun of Yayoi, but to actually get her to weep is overtheline.jpg I was so mad I was on the brinks of tears myself.
Girls meet boys
I'll be honest - I actually do like boy bands of the Johnny's Entertainment ilk. Jupiter is no different and they remind me of the time when Miki, Takane and Hibiki were your rivals. So it is no surprise that both Jupiter and Project Fairy are from the same agency, and personalities aside, their songs are pretty nice to listen to; that is of course, if you like boy band fluff like me
THANK YOU BASED PRODUCER GOD OF THIS EPISODE FOR GIVING RYOU A CAMEO ROLE
Isn't it sad, Chihaya?
Even while Makoto and Iori has never interacted with Ms Gloomy, they are aware of their internet memes and the role she plays in the group.
I am a firm believer in heterosexual relationships, which is why I do not usually advocate behaviour like this. I'll let this one slide, since it was pretty funny, and if I were in her shoes, I would have been gay for Makoto too.
Like a Minase
To know what the rules are, I highly recommend reading this article - talent agencies are big business, and knowing someone at the top can get you things done. While she would rather not use her family's influence, the ever pragmatic Iori will play her cards when necessary. Week after week, she continues to steal the show for me. Best Kugyuu character or bestest Kuyguu character?
So this is what a show with unlimited budget looks like eh? THE iDOLM@STER keeps getting better with every episode, and remains the sole example that a game to anime adaptation can be done right.
