IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls (Final Thoughts EP 17-24+25)

EDIT 31/10/15: I’m a dumbass who thought the series was over in the pre-finale keep reading past the embedded video to read more.

After more than 24 weeks of one of the most intense and regrettable roller coaster rides I’ve ever been on. I still don’t know for sure if i enjoyed Cinderella Girls or loathed it, but the second seasons few episodes were some of the more enjoyable. Idolm@ster is a series I have no regrets getting invested in over time but Cinderella girls has confused me in more ways than one, I’ll try not to talk to much about moments in the series I dislike and send the series off on a positive note.

IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls (EP 14-16)

The return of Cinderella Girls to my watch list isn’t something I can say I was looking forward to or even dreading but after seeing the PV I would be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t ecstatic, which also lead to a severe dread that it would just be a repeat of the up and down roller coaster that the first season was. Where I was expecting some kind of crossover episode between the 765 girls and 364 girls, I should have been looking more towards what they could do to express the individuality of the series apart from the main.

In the absence of Cinderella Girls and a lot of time contemplating on my thoughts towards the series, I now feel as though the first season fell short for not really trying hard enough, though it was enjoyable and had its moments it really could have been MUCH better. Sadly this blog post probably won’t be long enough to fit all my gripes with the first season, as most of these are written in under an hour, but I’m thrilled that every gripe I did have with the first season has been addressed. These first episodes focus on bringing more light to the girls which were shafted in the first season, hopefully this is the continued theme in the future of this series.

Gakkou Gurashi (EP 1-3)

As one of the most promising series airing this season I have high expectations of the adaptation, though this season may not have that much stellar in the works it’s still a decent series. The setting takes place in a typical happy-go-lucky high school where a group of four work from the home stay club and their adventures around the campus and trouble with boys!

Spoiler warning;
