The iDOLM@STER Weekly Character Rankings (2011/08/11)

1. Miki Hoshii
2. Ritsuko Akizuki
3. Haruka Amami

This post is delayed brought to us by Mass Effect 2. Sorry!

This episode is a step down from the previous weeks, I’m afraid. The drama with the Producer is very contrived, and I found myself rolling my eyes halfway through. He’s perfectly fine if he stays in the background, but otherwise he’s just going to steal screentime from the girls.

What redeems this episode, however, is Miki (again). Miki does whatever she pleases, and this time it pleases her to step up and take some jobs by her own hands, and that’s exactly what she does. It would be a welcome change from her.

Ritsuko makes it into the list, owing to a positive portrayal of a career woman. Her enthusiasm is infectious! She’s on a roll right now, and I can see myself cheering her on (since this is all her initiative) in the weeks to come.

Finally, Haruka gets a spot in the rankings. I liked how she was the most thoughtful with the Producer’s plight, and the candy bit was a nice touch. Her bright outlook in life is definitely put into good use here. But really, the Producer took too much precious screentime from everyone. Even Takane is not amused.

Nothing much to say about Ryuguu Komachi, despite one of the members having had a haircut. It seems that Iori is the leader of the group? Now that’s something!

    Ryuguu Komachi’s member composition seems nothing short of bizarre to me. Azuza sticks out like a sore thumb prancing about on stage with 2 girls HALF her size. Ritsuko seems to have a rather dubious definition of the word “balance”.

    Oooo, Mass Effect 2! Male or female? Paragon or Renegade?

    Well, Producer got a lot of screentime this episode because this was Producer’s episode. I mean, they used his song as the ending; “The Idolm@ster” is supposed to be “the player/Producer”, after all. My guess is that we will see at least one episode for every single named member of the cast, which is kinda expected from a 25 episode show.

    Miki-Miki continues to be Love <3. Disappointing lack of Chihaya this episode and not a huge fan of Azusa's hair cut. I will say it makes her look "cuter and younger", but thats not what i want/had my image of her as.
