Joint with Underwater.
We’re finally done with the IDOLM@STER movie! We’ve spent a lot of time making sure this release is as good as it can possibly be. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this release (mainly for our lovely typesetter, Hdr), so we hope you all fully enjoy the beauty of all our work. We went with “To the Other Side of the Light” for the translation over the other options because they all suck. Sorry.
I want to thank RDF for joining us to provide karaoke effects for the last two big songs, and Hdr for taking care of all the typesetting himself. Trust me when I say there were a lot of signs, and Hdr managed to handle them all himself.
Unfortunately, the original translator for the series wasn’t able to work on the movie, but we’ve made sure to include his original style as much as possible throughout the script. We also made sure to match a lot of stylistic things with the series, and with what FFF released.
Without further ado, here’s the staff list, along with member comments:
shark0week0 (Translation)
fotc (Translation/Editing/Quality Check)
Kuroneko = mai❤waifu
TruePsyche (Original Song Translation)
archdeco (Timing)
archdeco can’t provide us with his comment because he is too busy with fapping to every girl in the movie
Hdr (Typesetting)
no comment
RDF (Karaoke Styling/Quality Check)
First of all, I will like to thanks fotc to allow me participate in this project. It’s a pleasure to be able to work with UTW even if what I did seems unnecessary for most people in the scene. However, my work for some parts was not alone. Therefore, here is a few shout-out to my comrades in Hoshizora. Special thanks to kstng and Minoru for the k-timing of the songs, Shujin0 for advice in the ending and Effector for the shape effects used in M@sterpiece. I couldn’t be able to do that awesome M@sterpiece KFX without you guys.
There is nothing else for me to talk about besides I am hoping that you, the leechers, enjoy the release as much as (most of) the team made by Producer{-san} fotc did.

__ar (Encoding)
ryuu_zer0 (Quality Check)
I originally joined the channel to provide moral support after Kusion pasted the password in the FFF staff chan. Next thing I knew, I’d been roped in to QC this movie. Unfortunately, I failed to live up to my reputation by only stalling it for two days. Thanks to fotcfor giving me the opportunity to work on this release. Working with these guys was a blast, and hopefully I managed to help make this release better for all you Idolm@ster fans. Now, I should probably poke people so we can release that last BD volume…
Daiz (Quality Check)
Initially, I was supposed to be encoding this but my computer decided that it hated the BDMV for the movie and raised a real nasty ruckus about it, so I left the encoding duties to __ar instead. As such, I didn’t expect to do a whole lot of work on this, but the final QC phase ended up being surprisingly involved on all counts. It was definitely worth the time it took to go through it all, though. It was really fun to come back to IM@S after such a long time, though I would’ve preferred the movie to have been somewhat less HARUKA HARUKA HARUKA and HARUKA 2.0 HARUKA 2.0 HARUKA 2.0 in the form of Kana… but oh well, fun times were had regardless. Also, gonna join the chorus with __ar and end this on the note that MAKOTO STILL BEST IDOL
Let’s not forget the people who were forced to join the channel, but didn’t help out whatsoever, and just provided moral support: KmE, Juular, euronymous. Let’s also not forget Futsuu, who refused to join the channel, but helped look over songs.
We hope you all enjoy this release. We’re sorry for taking so long. This is our M@STERPIECE.

  14. Thanks:) any plans doing The IDOLM@STER Shiny Festa OVA?

  15. BeerWench on October 27, 2014 at 10:27 am said:

    I’ve heard A LOT of things regarding Idolm@ster,(mostly good), however never bothered to watch it.
    Can I start with the movie, or should I go by proper chronological?
    And thanks for the nice pre-movie ride. Been a long time since I saw a fansub group pull a troll as good as yours was. Can’t help but wonder if it had something to do with Commander’A un-deding on Nyaa O.o
    I miss that comfag, he was classy act 🙂
    Wasn’t even going to watch this…but your “troll” sparked my interest. Good job! and Thanks for the movie.

  16. Welp, as the saying goes, better late than never I guess. My body has been l@dying so much these past 2 weeks I probably won’t survive past the first few minutes due to idol sense overload lol.
    Been rewatching my favorite episodes from the TV series just to reacquaint myself with all the girls. And as usual, episode 20 never fails to activate those sweat glands in my eyes. Also reaffirmed my belief that Haruka is BEST IDORU, Chihaya X Haruka is OTP, Miki is a ‘dorobou neko nano’, and Kotori is Broducer’s OTP.
    P.S. – I wish we could have more story on Kotori’s past as a former idol as hinted in anime episode 21. Her seiyuu has a good voice and I quite liked her songs.

  17. Yumi-chan on October 27, 2014 at 11:54 am said:

    Wow. Kusion is doing stuff!

  18. Damn, I watched the TOKYO version yesterday, time for a rewatch
    @BeerWench: No, watch the series first, then the ova, then shiny festa and then the movie

    Thanks wef you’re a bro 🙂

  20. Thanks!

  21. Thank you so much, UTW and Underwater!

  22. The intro is so good (☆▽☆)
    Just an other confirmation of the well established fact that Chihaya is the best aidoru (☆▽☆)

    Now, if you can catch up on UBW, I might consider coming back to you guys.

  30. Thank you UTW!
    Anyone mind uploading the .ass file?

  31. I’ve heard this “I’m lady” song over at yggdrasilradio before, and got curious as to where it was from.
    Now that you guys released the movie, I’m now seriously considering watching this, just because you guys worked on it.
    What can I say, UTW releases are always top notch, and makes people watch things they wouldn’t normally watch 😀

    Kana a shit. Bitch ruined second half of the movie. I want anime about idols, not one main character solving mental issues of its clone. And to think it was absolutely perfect in the first half…

    Thanks for your impressive, incredible work subbing this movie. I’ve enjoyed every second of it (except the last part of the concert, the subs effects ended up freezing the player so I had to restart it XD)

  39. Thanks for getting it delivered. I’m totally looking forward to the night I tackle this movie~ Also, i hope you will do IM@S CG if/when it comes out

  40. IdolFan on October 28, 2014 at 3:55 am said:

    Watched the movie immediately after it finished downloading
    Movie deserves a M@STERPIECE/10
    Idolm@ster Best Idoru Franchise.
    Will always be L@dy.
    M@STERPIECE concert is a brilliant masterpiece.
    All other idols can go eat dust.

  41. Zerorush on October 28, 2014 at 3:58 am said:

    Is anyone else having trouble trying to stream this movie to a TV?
    Tried just plugging in my laptop to my TV, got constant pausing and skipping
    Tried plugging it into the Xbox one to try their new .MKV video player and it couldn’t read it at all.
    Tried streaming it to my Chromecast from my PC and it was back to the constant pausing/lag issues.

  42. @Zerorush
    1) What are you using to play it back on your laptop?
    2) Console.
    3) What are you using to stream to chromecast? (could be a slow network/computer cant transcode fast enough)
    I use pc > ps3. Looks great in 1080p (ps3 media server) =D

  43. If you cant handle 1080p try 720p instead.

  44. ichigo on October 28, 2014 at 4:15 am said:

    Hey, Unlimited Translation Works, I have not watched The iDOLM@STER series, but judging from this post alone, you guys are dedicated to quality. Thank you for every release that has been put out or will be out (maybe?), it is always appreciated.

  45. Yeah, so for the 1080p release everything is hunky dory until 01:54:18.463 where everything lags with the subs on and I’m using a monster rig to play this. It’s fine if I turn off the subs, but it’s still annoying regardless. Just pointing it out.

  46. Forgot to mention my player is MPC-HD with all the latest codecs.

  47. Do you have xy-VSFilter? Made a HUGE difference for me with karaoke subs. I do not have a total monster rig, and the subs in the 1080p version are silky smooth, both in the opening sequence and during that final song you have problems with.

  48. Ok, I give up, I know Ive seen those girls before but cant for the love of god remember where they are from.
    At 1:02:14, the poster between Chihaya and Miki, can someone pint me where are those 3 girls from?

  49. Aaaand Im retarded, the wiki did point out where they are from. FML.
    Sorry for double post, and thank you very much for bringing this cheap LL! imitation.

  50. Cat Shit One on October 28, 2014 at 7:35 am said:

    can you do 480p mp4? 🙂

  51. mortalkombat95 on October 28, 2014 at 8:44 am said:

    @2who >Sorry for double post, and thank you very much for bringing this cheap LL! imitation
    In truth LL! is more of an imitation of Idolm@ster after all, Idolm@ster came before LL!

  52. funtimesayshi on October 28, 2014 at 1:02 pm said:

    I rewatched the movie with your subs. Superior typesetting as always. Thank you everyone in this project for making this happen.
    …oh and with that, rest in peace UTW. ;~;

  53. Thanks for the release as always.

  54. art248 on October 28, 2014 at 5:42 pm said:

    thanks for subbing this 😀

  55. @2who >Sorry for double post, and thank you very much for bringing this cheap LL! imitation
    Not sure if troll or stupid. Check the wiki again and see which one is an imitation.

  56. AzuMiura on October 29, 2014 at 6:38 am said:

    They’re idols. Yes, iM@S has been around longer, but I doubt Love Live! is a rip-off. Japan just likes idols, so it’s going to be common.
    By the way, to that guy who didn’t like Kana, and said he wanted a movie about idols: that’s a common idol mindset. So you got what you asked for.

  57. mortalkombat95 on October 29, 2014 at 12:56 pm said:

    I don’t think “what” and I meant to say the Love Live! was an Idolm@ster rip off by our comments. It’s just that 2who was saying that Idolm@ster was an imitation of Love Live! so my comment was simply stating that if any of the two was a rip off of the other it would have to be Love Live! not that it actually is. “what” probably meant the same thing as me.
    In my opinion it’s impossible for them to be an imitation or rip off of each other because while their both Idol themed, their take on it is different. Love Live! turning it into some sort of school club type thing and Idolm@ster with the “normal” and “stereotypical” form of an Idol which in my opinion is more appealing.

  58. PuchimasuTL on October 29, 2014 at 1:35 pm said:

    Official subtitle is ‘Beyond the Brilliant Future’. Just wanted to put it out there http://puu.sh/ctZCp/afee9a8fd1.JPG

  59. FRNZLove on October 29, 2014 at 1:36 pm said:

    I would like to make an addendum to my first comment here.
    Thank you to every single one of you who worked on this. Except Hdr, who is the sole reason why good Yama no Susume subs are nonexistent from episode 9 onward.

  61. # mortalkombat95
    appealiang to Pedohil maybe..
    btw the show n song is decent
    they too focus to Haruka bt the way
    yea imas is almost ten years n literaly this generation alredy dead
    in the future i doubt everyone watching voice actress sing song and dance in age of 35-40 seiyuu in the real Concert
    if the series push to continued *_*

  62. Thanks, Kusion, TruePsyche and all the rest 🙂

  63. suprise on October 29, 2014 at 11:27 pm said:

    Surprise! Some of the voice actresses are already in their 30s, some even on 35, but lookie, many still watch the live concerts.

  64. nandeyanen on October 30, 2014 at 3:35 am said:

    Love Live is better

  65. Thanks. Good to see high quality fansubs. Hope to see more from you, though I can see how rl stuff can fuck up your life and reduce the time you have for fun stuff. Oh yes, i can relate to that. So much stuff i’d like to do (like finally go out and spend some hours trying out my new DSLR), but when I get home from work, I just want to relax 🙂

  66. Can I ask ? what video codec and sound codec you use for 1080P.
    I want to play on my MKV player with 6.1 sound but my player not support 10bit file and not support AAC and FLAC
    PS. I buy original BD already but still not unbox it.

  67. astro69 on October 30, 2014 at 5:38 am said:

    thanks utw and underwater friends, this is the greatest gift you can do for us, the Idol-lovers xD
    reading previous comments, i say: the unique bad idol series (that I remember) is wake up girls, LL and Idolmaster are great.
    my native language is spanish, but I prefer a thousand times to see your version to wait for a retranslated.
    thanks again.

  68. Harurun on October 30, 2014 at 5:54 pm said:

    No wonder this movie won the newtype awards as the best movie,the story,animation(especially on the concert scene),music etc. this movie is really awesome in many ways.

  69. # suprise
    for now Of course yea..
    but now its time to Cinderella genneration
    no beginning no end

  70. I wonder how many toasters M@sterpiece killed. I have a decent machine and xy-VSFilter, but still got some stutters in the second part of the song with the 1080p version.

  71. rdf2050 on October 31, 2014 at 3:57 am said:

    As many as possible. I want them all to burn! You will be unable to enjoy Full HD content with toasters nor watch amazing typesetting.

  72. leo@uhw on October 31, 2014 at 8:01 pm said:

    OC’d FX-6300 (@4.4ghz) & OC’d HD7870 (1135/1260) and it made me drop 40 frames. Oh well, can’t have everything.

  75. Arashi_Leonhart on October 31, 2014 at 10:27 pm said:

    Only complaint would be that during the performance you flipped the solo lines so Chihaya wants to dance and Miki wants to sing. Otherwise, it looks a lot nicer than other subs out there.

  76. addityo on November 1, 2014 at 2:45 am said:

    what is love live?

  77. @what @ mortalkombat95 was gonna let it pass with only one not understanding sarcasm, but 2… Yes idiots, I know LL! came after, I know its an imitation, heck, Im@s had a full franchise before LL! existed. But it’s wonderful how people assume an obvious troll/sarcastic post can be as retarded as Youtube comments section.
    For the sake of not making only an offtopic post, I had to deactivate subs to watch the M@sterpiece choreography without lag, damn you RDF.
    Now I know there isn’t much to expand in the main series, but I hope 765 at least appears in CG, because I’ll miss them. Till I learn moonrunes and can play the games.

    I downloaded the 1080p torrent but when I open it it’s green and the video is multiplied by 3 and displayed side-by-side. I’m using the default Windows Media Player and I’ve downloaded the torrent twice. Help??? :<

  80. rdf2050 on November 2, 2014 at 3:41 am said:

  81. darklaser72 on November 2, 2014 at 5:38 am said:

    Thank you very much. I was almost sure it was a codec problem, but didn’t know how to solve it. Again, thanks a million.
    (I guess you could say, thanks a MILLION LIVE huehuehue)

  82. darklaser72 on November 2, 2014 at 5:51 am said:

    Another quick question: how do I get it so that I see a video thumbnail on my files instead of the MPC icon? I can’t seem to find a setting for it…

  83. darklaser72 on November 2, 2014 at 5:55 am said:

    Nevermind, a quick restart was all that needed. Sorry for the spam.

  84. Artemis on November 2, 2014 at 3:39 pm said:

    I’ve never heard of codec packs or even thought of changing my media player, but I downloaded what you told darklaser72 to do. Now most of my .mkv anime downloads don’t have subtitles or video thumbnails (when I’m looking at the file). I haven’t been able to find anything through Google or the MPC website, could someone help me out?

  85. Artemis on November 2, 2014 at 4:23 pm said:

    Sorry for double-post of not including more information, but your iDOLM@STER movie won’t load properly either. It is green and glitchy-looking, kind of what @darklaser72 said he’s experiencing. The video is displayed in the top half of the player, multiplied by three (side-by-side), while the bottom half displays a ghostly but very faint version of the top half. No subtitles present.
    I’m using Windows 8.1, NVIDIA graphics drivers, and a kickass laptop that shouldn’t have any problems running this.
    I’m frustrated with how complicated MPC is (and the fact that I can’t find out how to make it work) and I’m just about ready to switch back to using Windows Media Player (which looks a million times nicer, aesthetically) and the Shark007 Codec Pack.

    only Vigins watch this shiTTTTTT…………….

  87. Haidaraaaaa on November 2, 2014 at 11:33 pm said:

    Artemis, that sounds like a 10bit issue. I believe nvidia recently fixed the issue with 10bit drivers so I would recommend updating your drivers first. If you are on the latest drivers then I would personally suggest madvr and xysubfilter. it’s not as stable as xy-vs but the performance is much better imo.
    Windows Media Player is going to choke hard on the kfx in this movie. Things like kfx and typesetting can usually make high end computers choke if overdone. It won’t really matter how good your computer is if your setup is bad.

  88. anonanon on November 3, 2014 at 9:28 am said:

    Just finished this, after all that effort they put into the drama and issues surrounding the backstage dancers, you end up only really seeing them clappy – pretty ironic..

    I think it’s trying to say something. I’ll translate.

    Can confirm shit movie. Not enough Makoto. Or Hibiki. Or any goddamn iDOL except for Haruka.

  97. Will you sub the new Suisei no Gargantia OVA which runs for 50 minutes? :3

  98. そに子 on November 4, 2014 at 9:16 pm said:

    Very nice… Thank you so much for subbing…!

  99. FRNZLove on November 4, 2014 at 10:42 pm said:

    ar already confirmed that UTW will NOT be doing the Gargantia OVA.
    Rest assured though, Vivid has already started work on it.

  100. Gargantia has official english subs, they come out on the 21st, Vivid releasing before that would be nice though.

  101. Fukuyasu on November 6, 2014 at 5:15 pm said:

    Another great job for the UTW team! Love your works, guys.
    I had a small problem with the subtitle for this release though . Maybe someone here can help ?
    I got the 1080 version and it plays fine until near the end of the Arena Concert where the confettis(?) are flying around the screen. At that scene, my fps dropped to about 4-5 only. After the scene ends , it plays normally again.
    At first, I thought my comp was not good enough for that (I have an old comp), but the thing is if i disabled the subtitle, that scene plays just fine.
    I tried installing the latest CCCP and using xy-vsfilter but the problem remains. Another peculiar thing is , if i use the built-in internal subtlitle renderer , the subtitle on that particular scene will not appear at all.
    Can someone offer a solution for this ?

  102. Just wanted to express my thanks. You guys have slowed down your output considerably but I’m so thankful that your team can still get together to bring us releases like this that we would never see other wise. Thank you so much UTW.

  103. Thank you so much for the beautiful job on this. I wouldn’t have gotten a chance to watch the movie if it weren’t for this, and beyond that, the subtitles really are beautifully done. Thank you so much!
    Also, when are they going to make the movie they showed the preview for in the intro? That would be a sweet movie.

  104. Chihaya a flat.

  105. Oddmoonlight on December 5, 2014 at 7:52 am said:

    Can anyone point me to the full version of the songs that are present in the movie? I was only able to get the short versions.

  106. the translation and subbing is fantastic! however the karaoke subtitles are messed up on the “m@sterpiece” performance
