THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls 13: Syoko is buried in the avalanche of complacent confirmity

Pon. I’d be excited for the second season if it was about these people. If this season focused on the B-list, compared to the first show, then a show about these weird assholes would be a show about the F-list. I like that, though. I like heroes who aren’t cut out to be heroes.

Oto. This show needed a Miki. Someone who is slightly more interesting than everyone else and fucks the producer.

Pon. You know, I see a lot of hate for Miki. I guess she wasn’t my favorite in the usual sense, but by the end of the show, she starts to look like the only adult in a room full of … I dunno, forget it. I don’t want to fight about it. I’m not invested enough in any of the im@s characters to fight over who’s the best. Go and like who you like, friends.

Oto. This show was alright. It focused more on the job than the first season, the end of the first season at least, right up til the end where all their hard work culminates into one big live show. Which is one of those things we were asking for, so that’s cool.

Pon. It’s that thing I mistakenly decided the first show was about. This one’s more consistent so far–its best episodes aren’t as good, but goddamn are its worst episodes better than the ones from im@s vanilla. You know, bearing in mind that this is the opinion of someone who isn’t invested in the IP beyond the TV shows and never will be because the music gets on my nerves and there aren’t enough wizards.

Oto. Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. Minus the music stuff, ‘cause, ya know, I kinda like it. It’s no Love Live, but I digress. Cinderella Girls is consistently average the whole way through. I never got too excited about any characters or arcs, but nothing made me hate any part of it. Okay, there was that part where I was momentarily mad at Mio, but I got over it.

Pon. “Average” sounds kind of bad, but I know what you mean. It just … works. The gears turn. It doesn’t blow my mind, but it’s a perfectly serviceable story.
