What is "Idolmaster?"

    What is the Idolmaster

    This is a story about growth, friendship, and young girls' dreams of becoming superstars

    Entertainment Studios, a 765th production. With it we find ourselves enraptured in a story revolving around 13 young girls and their novice producer, who together strive for the title of "top idol." Facing hardships head-on, it is a beautifully depicted story of friendship and growth.

    Under the same name is the original arcade game "Idol Produce Game Experience" that not only inspired this "Idolmaster" story but has a long history dating back to the year 2005. Since its arcade game era, this series has amassed a large fan (producer) base that has since been growing. There's no stopping "Idolmaster." From the home video game, this series has been adapted into a colossal number of things including a radio show, dance performances, and songs being sold on CDs.

    Summer of 2011. During this journey, the "Idolmaster" game was made into an anime TV series. By boiling down the original gaming product to its essence and developing that into a story line, producers brought their staff, cast, and fans (producers) closer together. With the developer's devotion to creating the perfect product and fans' love for the series, this TV program ended on an undeniably high-note.

    January of 2014. "The Idolmaster" finally gets it's silver screen debut. Succeeding the 26-episode long animated TV series, this film is the much-anticipated sequel that many "producers" (fans) have been waiting for. However, this flick will be following a completely different story line centering around young girls, their dreams to become a top star, and personal growth. Staying in theme with the products you'll be fascinated by the group of determined girls in this movie that will stop at nothing to achieve their dreams and drive home the idea of "Kagayaki no Mukogawa" (the light on the other side [of the tunnel]), so please don't miss it!
    Let's introduce you to the 13 main characters from the "Idolmaster" movie!
