THE IDOLM@STER STATION!!!~Zenzen Aitakatta~


Last week, on March 1st, through two miraculous strokes of lottery luck, I and fellow HPT’er Omo were lucky enough to attend THE IDOLM@STER STATION!! ~Zenzen aitakatta~ public recording at Kawasaki Club CITTA.

This event marked the first time the Aisute radio series (including past incarnations) has held a public recording event, and the 2nd time for an Aisute live event (see the amazing HEART AND SOUL event in 2012).

Since I neglected to write-up C3HK in any formal way, I figured I should at least do one here. Everything described below is pretty much dumped from my memory, so apologies in advance if there are any mistakes.

Started with the iDOLM@STER Radio with Imai Asami and Takahashi Chiaki as the personalities in the year 2006, the radio side of this behemoth hasn’t stopped growing. With 5 weekly radios covering the three different franchises (765 Pro, Cinderella Girls & Million Live) and a monthly radio focusing on the crane game and Ichiban Kuji, following the radios is a great way to get up to date with The iDOLM@STER.
