The iDOLM@STER SideM Episode 3

Eva

My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    the ‘girl’ Tsubasa bump into is actually another Im@s idol from 876pro, Ryo Akizuki.

    ‘she’ had also appeared on iDOLM@STER anime too with ‘her’ unit.

    the bumping scene wasn’t followed up later because it’s serves as a cameo appearance (like the children’s TV show scene on this week’s episode)

    cameos for the idols who didn’t join 315pro yet

      Thanks for the clarification!!!!! Removed that bit.
      I would have never guessed he was a boy crossing-dressing XDDD Man I don’t even remember seeing him in iDOLM@STER!

    Dramatic Stars is the first unit to debut because they are the ‘main’ unit and were the first to get seiyuus and release a CD along with Jupiter. The 5 units featured in the anime are the first 5 to get voices and CD, the order being Dramatic Stars->Beit->HighxJoker->W->SEM. All the songs and dances replicate the real live concerts.

    The ‘girl’ Tsubasa encounters is Ryo Akizuki, he is Ritsuko’s cousin (the girl with glasses who was Ryuu Komachi’s manager in Idolmaster). Ritsuko forced him to crossdress in order to debut as an idol and was in a unit with 2 other girls (voiced by Hanazawa Kana and Tomatsu Haruka). He made a cameo in the first Idolmaster anime, the sports competition episode, Jupiter was in that episode too.
    Ryo has appeared in several Idolmaster games until he was finally allowed to debut as a boy in 2015 in 315Pro. His unit F-lags, is composed of a 14 year old yakuza heir and a 19 year old ex-novelist. Ryo is the only sideM idol voiced by a female seiyuu (his seiyuu also voices Boruto).

    The 3 young boys from the TV show are a unit called Mofumofuen. Kanon, the girliest looking one who loves cute clothes is voiced by Murase Ayumu, popular for being Hinata in Haikyuu.

    In every episode future 315Pro idols have been making cameos. Last week during the typhoon the JSDF military man, the fireman and the policeman are from Frame, a unit very popular in-universe and in real life with male fans. The second episode, when Tsubasa and Teru went to a ramen restaurant the man serving them is Michiru from The Kogadou.

    The Dramatic Stars seiyuu have been in multiple idol series.
    Nakamura Shuugo (Teru) is in Tsukipro the Animation as one of Quell’s twins. Quell is Takeuchi Shunsuke (Cinderella Girls’ Producer), Nishiyama Kotaro (Atsushi in Boueibu) and Nogami Sho (HighxJoker’s Shiki in sideM). They specialize in ballads and calming music. Tsukipro the Animation takes place in real time, this week’s Quell episode happened in October 2017 and the official website has a calendar with the idols’ schedule as seen in the anime. Tsukipro and Tsukiuta follow the flow of time as in real life, every January they make a major update of the setting and character designs. Drama CDs, their twitter account and the recent mobile rhythm game Tsukipara offer more about the story.

    Uchida Yuuma (Kaoru) won the Seiyuu Newcomer Award this year. He has been in multiple titles such as Hayate Immelman in Macross Delta or Ein Dalton in Gundam Orphans. Casted in many idol roles, he was the cinnamon roll Eiji in Uta no Prince-sama Legend Star and praised during the last Utapri concert for his skills while performing with Miyano Mamoru the duet they sing together:

    Yashiro Taku (Tsubasa) has been active during the past few year and helms a big number of idol roles like Subaru in Aikatsu Stars, Hayato in Shonen Maid, Haruhi in B-Project (his group didn’t appear in the anime) or Orion in Show by Rock.

    Sorry for long comment.
