iDOLM@STER Character Profiles

With our upcoming joint project, THE iDOLM@STER, only a few weeks away, we figured it would be nice if we gave our followers some background information on the characters. We found these magazine scans lying around, and got them translated for you.

Keep in mind that this is only a small number compared to what there may be out there. We’re trying to update with as many as we find, and if you have some scans that we don’t, we’d appreciate it if you’d link us!

We hope to see you all in a few weeks!

(Note: these are read from right to left… if you couldn’t tell)

The excitement builds more and more with the release of the promotional videos!

An unbalanced combo of the same age, Iori & Miki are also growing with each passing day? The TV anime, ?iDOLM@STER? paints a portrait of these girls struggling to become nationally recognized idols. From the PVs released before July’s ON AIR date, let’s investigate their everyday lives!

Hoshii Miki
With a fantastic body and hidden talent seemingly bestowed by heaven, she’s nothing if not a diamond in the rough. While her leisurely attitude is fine with us, her completely my-pace approach to things could be the diamond’s flaw…

Minase Iori
Her body may be small, but her spirit and determination are huge! An “ojou-sama” kind of idol. Hidden onstage behind an adorable smile, to her companions she’s a little bit of a harsh tsundere (?!) girl.

Mind and body currently growing however they want! ?

Are you ready? Let’s Go!!

Following the 2/24 game release, the anime’s stage finally raises curtain? With the broadcasting stations announced, the TV anime adaptation to ?IM@S? feels more and more real. Make sure to check this month’s TV anime edition for the idols’ visuals!

Shijou Takane
Like a refined princess, she’s a beautiful girl with real class. Her silver hair has led to her nickname, “Silver Princess.” Polite and old-fashioned, she has something of a mysterious side to her.

Hagiwara Yukiho
A kindhearted girl who gives off a peaceful aura. Reserved and timid, she may not have a very idol-like personality, but she’s working hard in hopes of one day becoming Top Idol!

Takatsuki Yayoi
Never to be found without a full-throttle smile! An active girl whose innocence is her charm. As the oldest child of a big family, she’s working hard to support her family’s finances ? a real working-class idol.
Planned to air on TBS, BS-TBS, and others!

From cute twins to a soothing onee-san character… 765 Pro covers the full variety of idols

The talent office set to be ?iDOLM@STER?’s stage, ?765 Pro? contains your choice of fresh idols from their early teens to their twenties. Though each has their own personality and qualities as an idol, every one of them spends their days chasing the dream of becoming Top Idol…… Expect a lot out of the future the TV anime staff is putting their energy into rendering for these girls ?

All sorts of up-and-coming idols!

Amami Haruka
Hoshii Miki
Ganaha Hibiki

Futami Mami
Futami Ami’s elder twin sister, with a face and personality to match. Enjoys playing pranks with Ami, and still maintains a childish side.

Miura Azusa
Possessor of a dynamite body, she’s the office’s oldest idol. Her all-accepting atmosphere leaves male fans like butter ?

Futami Ami
Futami Mami’s younger twin sister and 765 Pro’s youngest member. Seems to exist solely to liven things up alongside her sister Mami.

In response to your support, we’ll do our very best! ?

Psy note: Mami is listed as the elder sister and Ami as the younger, while the reverse is true in the story told in the game universe. Additionally, Azusa’s eyes are here portrayed as blue, whereas they have been previously depicted as a deep red/brown (as seen here). Whether these are errors or alterations is yet unknown.

A handsome girl invincible at all things sports

Kikuchi Makoto
With an androgynous appearance and a husky voice, she’s makes for a chivalrous, boyish idol. She shows us sharp dance moves thanks to her great athleticism. Though her charm is like that of a prince, her maidenly heart carries a love for all things cute. In order to look more feminine, she’s been growing out her hair.

An enthusiastic girl from the southern islands

Ganaha Hibiki
Traveling all the way from Okinawa to Tokyo, she’s a girl with boundless energy. With a good feeling for rhythm, her dance sense contends for first or second best within all the thirteen girls, which leaves her full of confidence? As fits an Okinawan, she carries a “nankuru naisa?” (“don’t worry about it!” from the native Okinawan language) kind of attitude, captivating everyone with her optimism ?

Making their appeal to you through passionate dance ?

New fans must see!

Check out the characteristics of the 765 Pro idols!

Driving towards the July debut in your living rooms, Hibiki & Makoto are warming up the dance steps in which they have so much confidence!?  With roughly one month until the broadcasting of the TV anime ?iDOLM@STER?, we once more present to you the thirteen heroines’ charms! In preparation for the coming workout, you’ll need to start warming up your heart, too ?


765 Pro’s trademark

?(??´) Nice!
Rather than an idol, an artist!?

Aiming to become a successful vocalist, Chihaya states with certainty ?Even if I were to lose everything except my voice, it wouldn’t bother me in the least?. Though it hasn’t been long since her debut, her bearing is already that of a diva!?

Kisaragi Chihaya (Voice/Imai Asami)
Possessor of such a vocal talent that nobody can deny it. Her personality is both diligent and stoic, and she’s equally as strict with others as she is with herself. However, she’s unexpectedly sensitive and easily hurt.
Birthday: Feb 25, Pisces
Height/Weight: 162cm/41kg
B-W-H: 72-55-78
Hobbies: Appreciation of music (classical), training

I want you to look only at me
My-Pace Girl

?(??´) Nice!
She’ll show us a different side of her when she’s in love!?

Making statements such as ?I want to take the easy road to being an idol?, Miki seems to take everything casually. However, she seems to take matters of the heart in earnest… Could she transform into the devoted type when standing in front of the one she loves!?

Hoshii Miki (Voice/Hasegawa Akiko)
Particularly striking in her appearance, but also a genius of song and dance. On top of that, she has phenomenal proportions despite still being in middle school! Still, getting bored easily and taking things at her own pace occasionally calls calamity, so maybe it’ll take time to make her talent bloom?
Birthday: Nov 23, Sagittarius
Height/Weight: 161cm, 45kg
B-W-H: 86-55-83
Hobbies: Chatting with friends, nail art.

The nation’s very own
Clumsy Girl

?(??´) Nice!
Haruka’s strong point is her NG scenes!?

Tripping over herself on perfectly flat ground several times a day is the day-dreamy Haruka. Due to that clumsiness, a terrible mistake during a live! …is the kind of scene we’d very much like to see! (Sorry, Haruka!)

Amami Haruka (Voice/Nakamura Eriko)
Has loved singing since she was little, and dreams of one day becoming Top Idol. Though she’s fairly clumsy, she’s working hard every day thanks to her characteristic upbeat attitude and positive thinking.
Birthday: Apr 3, Aries
Height/Weight: 158cm/46kg
B-W-H: 83-56-82
Hobbies: Making sweets, long phone calls.

    So, no mecha in this series lol ^_^

  3. kryminal on June 23, 2011 at 12:51 am said:

    so no trap? if so im not watching.

  4. LordOmnit on June 23, 2011 at 12:52 am said:

    You guys seem almost seem a little excited about this series but I’m not quite convinced yet.
    I wanna see the blurbs Chihaya and Makoto myself.

  5. LordOmnit on June 23, 2011 at 12:53 am said:

    *blurbs for
    Goddamn my indecisiveness about wording!

  6. Is this a visual novel or something you guys are translating?
    I’ve heard of this but I still don’t know what it is exactly 😛

  7. Advance on June 23, 2011 at 1:03 am said:

    Its a game by Bandai Namco, “the player manages the careers of 10 aspiring Japanese idol singers as a producer.”
    And an anime adaptation is coming for the Summer season.

  9. JoetheArachnid on June 23, 2011 at 2:08 am said:

    I’ve still never quite understood how the whole older/younger ‘twins’ thing works. Surely if they’re twins they’re the same age?

  10. Annoymous on June 23, 2011 at 2:22 am said:

    Oh you are doing idolmaster

  11. LordOmnit on June 23, 2011 at 2:25 am said:

    Older is just the one born first. The problem I see with twins is that unless they brand the kids when they are born or otherwise keep them labeled at all times I don’t know how anyone could keep up with that until they are old enough to know their own names and then be able to tell which one was born first. Or they lie.

  12. IZEROII on June 23, 2011 at 2:54 am said:

    What can I say…you guys are awesome.

  13. jeff nick on June 23, 2011 at 3:33 am said:

    If it doesn’t have any romance and its just a bunch of girls singing then I’ll definitely pass on this… Are you guys doing anything else?

  14. Julio on June 23, 2011 at 4:10 am said:

    What? No yuri?

  15. Eben on June 23, 2011 at 4:53 am said:

    Hagiwara Yukiho wooooooo!

  16. SelecaoIX on June 23, 2011 at 5:40 am said:

    So, have you guys decided on what other series you’re doing next season?

  17. Afro on June 23, 2011 at 6:20 am said:

    sports girls <3

  18. Sumatori-kun on June 23, 2011 at 6:45 am said:

    LOL, this game is the only reason to get a X360 atm.

  19. Sammy on June 23, 2011 at 6:48 am said:

    How’re the work gonna be divided up with Underwater? Just curious

  20. Sumatori-kun on June 23, 2011 at 6:50 am said:

    If they are not going to hire Rie Kugimiya (she’s the original voice actress in both games) for Iori’s voice actress I will be seriously fucking pissed.

  21. bouille on June 23, 2011 at 7:54 am said:

    Too much characters in that. Someone should take any 3 of them and drop everyone else !

  22. Against all my expectations, I’m looking forward to this show. Thanks for sharing and translating the scans you’ve found.

  23. ukato on June 23, 2011 at 8:02 am said:

    what the… no Harukakka? O.o

  24. arsonal on June 23, 2011 at 10:02 am said:

    missing Haruka, Chihaya, and Ritsuko… come on Dengeki G’s!

  25. Wow, even translating the magazine promotional pages. That’s some dedication.

  26. Leon-Gun on June 23, 2011 at 11:19 am said:

    Parents usually seem to treat the more dominating, active or mature twin as the older. In the end it’s less about who popped out first and more about which one acts the part. It’s not like it matters but siblings can get hung up on pointless details like that, especially twins who obviously have a smaller sense of individuality.

  27. Schezza on June 23, 2011 at 12:33 pm said:

    holy shit.. too long to read 😛

  28. LordOmnit on June 23, 2011 at 12:43 pm said:

    Ah, so that’s how it is. Interesting, although I must say that method would never occur to me.
    Also, yay for Makot- blue hair?

  29. Souther on June 23, 2011 at 1:25 pm said:

    Pedobear is pleased

  30. Anon on June 23, 2011 at 2:06 pm said:

    why no Chihaya Kisaragi D:

  31. My body and soul are prepared. Bring it on.

  32. IzumiTaka on June 23, 2011 at 3:45 pm said:

    this anime gonna be fucking awesome

  33. Kuchibiru on June 23, 2011 at 4:08 pm said:

    Thaaaaaaank youuuuu. I really appreciate this post, it helps a lot. Especially for someone like me who has not played the iDOLM@STER games and would like to jump into the world with the anime this summer.
    I’m ready with my yuri goggles for this one.

  34. Tysonblast on June 23, 2011 at 4:28 pm said:

    It seems this one also airs on Thursday.
    isn’t that grand?

  35. Meme on June 23, 2011 at 4:42 pm said:


  36. I like the last pair the best.
    And yuri would be awesome but I’m sure it’s not gonna be there. D:

  37. leo@uhw on June 23, 2011 at 5:26 pm said:

    Underwater+UTW? I don’t care what it is, I’d watch it.

  38. phdchristmas on June 23, 2011 at 6:55 pm said:

    damn Shijou Takane looking classy.

  39. mossad on June 23, 2011 at 6:56 pm said:

    ano hi mada shiranai pls! 🙁

  40. ahegao on June 23, 2011 at 7:14 pm said:

    My girl Miki finally getting the spotlight she deserves. That is all.

  41. Anonymous on June 23, 2011 at 11:28 pm said:

    ? Loading! Loading! ?

  42. dicks on June 24, 2011 at 4:59 am said:

    Groups confirmed for iDOLM@STER:
    I’ll be going with you guys, there’s no way that combo could go wrong. EveTaku are great but inexperienced, and Doki are just faggots.

  43. jmaeshawn on June 24, 2011 at 5:20 am said:

    You’re doing this series? 🙁
    I was hoping you’d be doing Usagi Drop and Ikoku Meiro no Croisee.
    Well, I guess since Underwater is being listed first in the joint, they’ll be doing most of the work on Idolpl@ster, leaving you to possibly pick up Usagi Drop and Ikoku Meiro no Croisee as solo projects? 😉

  44. Rizaria on June 25, 2011 at 1:22 am said:

    wtf is this shit. 😮
    Why is it most of the characters have designs I’ve seen in several other anime? It’s confusing.
    Oh well, if the next season is slow I guess I’ll check it out.

  45. Rizal on June 25, 2011 at 2:16 am said:

    Hmmm…character designs look familiar.
    So, how many animes will you UTW guys doing this summer?
    I hope you subs Carnival Phantasm when it comes out.

  46. phdchristmas on June 25, 2011 at 2:49 am said:

    oh shift. Miki’s in middle school!? baaiitt

  47. Gazelle on June 25, 2011 at 8:45 am said:

    OH. MY. G*D. . . I’ve been a big fan of Idolm@ster ever since the very first game. . .so effin’ excited! You guys are my heroes. xD

  48. Replica on June 25, 2011 at 9:10 am said:

    Yayoi. Forever and always.

  49. Posted this on Underwater’s blog, but didn’t get any replies, so I’m reposting here. What should we be expecting for the translation (for things like honorifics and name order)?

  50. This shiznit looks so moe.
    Might watch then. :3

  51. anon: No real decisions made in regards to those, except that name order will most definitely be Eastern since both groups have always used that. Or well, used the order they say their names in, whichever it might be.

  52. AnimeLord on June 25, 2011 at 1:44 pm said:

    Ano Hana … I spent all night pressing the refresh button. 😀

    Lol 😛 Take your time UTW, you guys are doing great. <3

  54. Jin-Tan on June 26, 2011 at 7:09 am said:

    But that’s fine since UTW subs the best for ano hana.
    I am tempted to get the one from horrible subs but theirs are too horrible. So I’ll wait even if it takes centuries.

  55. 20% Alcohol on June 26, 2011 at 10:42 am said:

    Imagine my lack of surprise when I come home and see Ano Hana still isn’t up.

  56. Progeusz on June 26, 2011 at 10:55 am said:

    Ano Hana… come here… I wanna see you… *drools*
    Okay, take your time if you have to, quality is what’s the most important for us!
    Am I imagining things or is deleting the news about Ano Hana delay a sign that it will be released soon?

  57. I have a dream. And I have to give up.

  58. i love iori!!!
