A yearly event at this point in time, The iDOLM@STER is back at Choukaigi, and this time, SideM is also joining! This year, the Nico Choukaigi will happen on April 29-30th in Makuhari Messe as usual. Unlike previous years where it was held over the weekend, this year’s Choukaigi actually starts on a Friday (although it is a public holiday in Japan). Do read up on Chuck’s previous post on the event if you’re not sure what Choukaigi is.

A few things of note:
- This marks the first The iDOLM@STER event appearance of the new mothers: Wakabayashi Naomi since the 8th live, and for Hasegawa Akiko and Nigo Mayako, this is their first appearance in a live event since the M@STERS OF IDOL WORLD live in 2014.
- In the past years they’ve also done the Live Viewing stage, and it has never been streamed, so we can expect them to not stream it.
