imas10th: Pamphlet Interview Series

10thKVTHE IDOLM@STER Live events generally involve the sales of pamphlets, and the one that was sold in the 10th live is definitely the most packed one yet. They’re actually selling it through Lalabit at the moment, so if you’re interested in and was not able to obtain it during the live because of whatever reason, go ahead and get it!

As I read through the pamphlet during my flight back, I can’t help but started wanting to translate the interviews as they’re wonderfully done. I’ll do this in several articles, with each article containing around 3 or 4 interviews from the performers of THE IDOLM@STER M@STERS OF IDOL WORLD 2015. I’m going to try and do at least one per team, but I won’t be doing it in any particular order!

Disclaimer, the translations may not be 100% accurate, so take it as you will.

What is the most memorable impression you have during your THE IDOLM@STER related activities?
There are so many of them that its difficult. I still remember about the audition, spending a long time in a small studio while looking at a picture of a smiling Hibiki. That was how everything started.

What would you like to do in the future as a part of THE IDOLM@STER?
Continue expressing “This is imas!” in an IDOLM@STER-like way. As a part of IDOLM@STER, I would like to at least be able to support this a little.

What would you give Ganaha Hibiki as present for her hard work?
Food for the animals. As someone who is surprisingly family oriented, practical things should make her the happiest (probably)!

Other than combined live events, what would you like to do with the other IDOLM@STER series cast?
Having all the idols appear in a short anime like “Puchimasu!” seems interesting (*^^*)

What kind of party would you throw for the hardworking Producer(s)?
Singing the song Producers want to hear there and then.

Please give your message to the producers in the venue!
I can’t help but look forward to the scenery the Producers will show me today. Once again, congratulations for the 10th anniversary! And thank you! Let’s enjoy this everyone!

Other works include Cross Ange (Naomi), Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio Ars Nova (Osakabe Makie)

What is the most memorable impression you have during your THE IDOLM@STER related activities?
Right now it has to be the anime…! During the recordings, having attention paid even to the smallest details is very memorable. Not only related to breathing and lines, we even got directions related to the adlibbed parts. I can feel the staff’s passion and will in wanting to make something good.

What would you like to do in the future as a part of THE IDOLM@STER?
Right now there is the G4U Pack that comes with the Cinderella Girls BD, but if Cinderella Girls can get an actual console game… It’d be great! Up until now, I’ve always answered this type of questions with “I’d like to get an anime!” but that came into being very quickly.

What would you give Honda Mio as present for her hard work?
I wonder what… Mio’s hobby is shopping so I’d like to go shopping together with her.

Other than combined live events, what would you like to do with the other IDOLM@STER series cast?
Right now the idols haven’t met up with 765 Pro and Million Live, so I’d like to see some sort of alternate universe story and see how the idols from different franchises talk to each other.

What kind of party would you throw for the hardworking Producer(s)?
Cinderella Part-

Please give your message to the producers in the venue!
It’ll be a very very hot (x2) day. Take care of yourself while having fun with all you got!

Reina

Hobbies and skills include thinking about colours for school grades, drawing with a ballpoint pen, dream diary and being Machico’s girlfriend
Other works include Hanayamata (Sekiya Naru), Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Akemi Mikan)

What is the most memorable impression you have during your THE IDOLM@STER related activities?
The first stage I appeared in was the release event for THE IDOLM@STER LIVE THE@TER PERFORMANCE 10 is the most memorable one. I can still vividly remember my nervousness and excitement when appearing as Umi in front of the Producers.

What would you like to do in the future as a part of THE IDOLM@STER?
I feel like what I must do the most is to be able to properly face Umi. To be able to draw out Umi’s cuteness I want to work hard aggressively and sincerely in every line, song and live performances.

What would you give Kousaka Umi as present for her hard work?
I’d hang out with Umi and do whatever she wants to do and go to all kinds of places.

Other than combined live events, what would you like to do with the other IDOLM@STER series cast?
I’d like to eat with everyone relaxedly and travel to places. I guess this is closer to playing and hanging out rather than appearing together (lol).

What kind of party would you throw for the hardworking Producer(s)?
First up I’d get Zekky’s (Oozeki Eri) Satake Minako-chan to cook the food. This is a must! And then just have a blast and have fun with everyone.

Please give your message to the producers in the venue!
In the 10 years of THE IDOLM@STER’s history, the time I’ve been spending together with Umi has only been 2 years. I’ve learned a lot of things from my seniors, and will work hard to make this live a fun one and make a time where our hearts will dance!

That wraps up the first part of this series, look forward to more of these in the future!
