Yeah, there have been three manga-bundled CDs of cover songs. That was from the first, which had a "battle heroines" theme (Sailor Moon, Cutie Honey, GITS, Negima OPs). The second was all the OP themes from Bakemonogatari (hence the infamous Kugimiya version of Ren'ai Circulation. All those Bake OPs were composed by longtime [email protected] composers, so...). Then, way more recently, they did a CD covering the OP/ED from the first season of YuruYuri and the OP/ED of Kannagi. All pretty good stuff.

Woah, missed those. I'm also not really fond of the Rise cover myself, but I guess that's what happens when you make a Japanese singer sing a song in combined English/Russian.
On the other hand, the Bakemonogatari CD is pretty cool. And since we're talking covers, Miki's "Namida no Hurricane" and Takane's "Tsuki no Waltz" were great, too. Since we already mentioned "Whiskey ga, Osuki Desho"...

Awesome thread, OP! I was only introduced to the franchise about a week ago, but the latest game looks pretty neat and I hope to play it myself sometime soon. The music is catchy and the art is beautiful. Anyways, since I don't have much to contribute, I may as well just leave this here:

Close, but her OTP Azusa is da best!

Yukiho is pretty awesome too, it's unfortunate that her episode early on in the series was kinda rough as she doesn't deserve the 'meh' attitude she gets from fans. :(

There's the [email protected] Master albums if you want songs that appeared in the anime. You'll still be buying quite a few of them though. Not all the songs are vocal songs since the OST is scattered in them too.

I feel like it's just a GAF thing. A lot of people I come across don't really hate any of them.

She's still one of my favorites, mostly for Awakened Miki. Too bad she wasn't that in One for All : /

The anime's entertaining. It's different and worth checking out. Still no idolmaster for me though regarding songs and characters.

It's been explained many times, it's mostly the animation iteration of Miki that people hate.

Something doesn't go her way because she miscommunicated and then she strops off almost ruining a concert for everyone else.
She belittles fellow idols.
And especially her awful attitude towards Haruka.

Oh, and my top 3 from what I can remember of the anime are Takane, Hibiki, and Miki. The twins have an honorable mention

I would suggest checking out the THE [email protected] 765PRO ALLSTARS [email protected] BEST! series. They have the most popular songs from the 10 years of the franchise on it. It are 1 single cd called the Idolmaster history with the most famous songs. Then there are 3 double cds in the series spanning different themes like the more serious songs to the more peppy happy songs. so check it out. Here is a link to the cd music tracklist.

The main OSTs for the TV series are the seven (yes, SEVEN) [email protected] Master CDs. Not, I should point out, the [email protected] Master Mamassuka CDs, which were a combination of [email protected] DLC song releases and character songs, as opposed to anything from the TV show.

You'd still need the CDs singles as well for the full-length OPs, though.

Well it depends on your fluency in Japanese. The easiest thing to get into would be watching the anime since that has english subs. This will also give you a good introduction to all the main characters.

No idol culture here so they probably don't think there's much of a market for it. Though I heard something about licencing costs but I wouldn't know because I'd assume Namco has the rights to their own stuff.

Really you'd need someone to ask but interest in Japanese games like this is basically non existent in the Western press.

Bring it to Wii U, tie the DLC to Amiibos and watch the money roll in.

Then put Haruka in Smash to advertise the series.

I'd assume that the licensing issue is more due to the amount of voice actors present in the game and Namco would have to negotiate licensing for their work again for international distribution. This could end up being prohibitively expensive.

While this could be a problem for the current games is there anything stopping them from including international distribution for the contracts of a new game?

If there is a clause or a separate contract for international distribution, then of course that wouldn't be a obstacle for a localization as long as Bandai-Namco is willing to pay. The other costs of localization would still be the main issue as localization isn't cheap. There aren't enough people interested in the franchise to justify the costs. It's the same issue with Sega's Yakuza series which has a small and vocal fanbase that buys the localized titles, but the games don't sell enough.

I do hope that the eventual Idolmaster game for PS4 would get localized, but even if it would get released I wouldn't trust Bandai-Namco after the mess that was the localized version of Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment.
