This weekend, iDOLM@STER Million Live will be having their
second twond live at the Makuhari Messe Event Hall (previously the venue for 765 Pro’s 5th and 8th live) over two days. With a total of 21 performers over both days, this is Million Live’s biggest live yet.
We’re gonna use this opportunity to introduce some of the Million Live girls (and maybe help the guys who are going prepare a bit better). The girls’ names and nicknames will be linked to their twitter/blog and official agency profile when available. First up are the girls appearing in both days!

Pyonkichi (along with Koroazu and Mocho) appeared in most, if not all of the Live Theater Performance release events, giving her a lot of training. She started recognising seiyuu as a profession thanks to Fullmetal Alchemist (which she got into due to her mother not wanting to watch the first movie alone.) Pyonkichi, along with Mocho and Koroazu, acts as the personality of Million Live’s own Million Radio. Once when Akky guested in Million Radio, she went on and rambled about why Miki is her favourite.

In high school, she was the captain of her school’s tennis team. She admires Mizuki Nana, and has been listening to her Smile Gang radio since the first episode.

A Mocho fan, Stefuji got introduced to the world of acting after getting invited by her friend to join the theater club in middle school. She lacked the courage to go forward with acting, but loved the world so she ended up working as a lighting crew for a while, before working up the courage to try acting. She actually ended up joining a modeling focused agency for a while due to lack of research (she actually ended up as a Miss International finalist.) After that, she joined another agency and ended up doing voicing for shows like Fairy Tail and Precure. One summer, she ended up going to a Precure Musical show and got touched by the kids shouting their support for Precure and ended up taking the audition for her current agency.
The remaining girls who are only going to appear for one day will get their own article, coming up soon!
