Reviewing 10 years of THE IDOLM@STER history [Translation]

At the very end of 2015, Dengeki released an interview with Ishihara Akihiro, the general director of The IDOLM@STER franchise.

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.

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.
