The new and true iM@S anime by A-1 Pictures has broadcast its first episode, featuring the entire cast of idols (including the ill-fated ones dumped from the latest game), though stopping short of full Ryochin inclusion and also leaving out the controversial male idols.

More interestingly, the obscure and generally ignored protagonist and idol exploiter “P-san,” or Producer, finally comes out of the shadows and reveals his identity…

    "We'll get right on that.

    Oh, no, we won't..."

    That's right because no one here is doing the drawing. Someone's feeling more important than they are.

    The eyes are completely different! Imo it doesn't really look too much like K-ON!, if anything, K-ON looks too much like it!
    But what do you expect from this kind of show anyway? Not like it's going to have much substance to it.

    Well, Idolmaster fans have always thought of the producer as themselves and this guy looks, well... Japanese enough I think.

    One of the biggest issue in the manga/anime industry atm is that everybody loves to draw girls, but there's not many people that are actually capable of drawing a good looking male character because... well... they're too busy working on girls..

    Not exactly watching this for the male protagonist. But I'd definitely agree with you. The industry needs a new Hokuto no Ken. something manly. With shock.

    LOVE the character designer's work. I'm so glad he's being featured in such a high profile project as Idolmaster.

    The most of the comments on 2chan was about "P shouldn't show the face and voice because the player are the producer.
    The anime should even cut Producer's existence and maintain Ritsuko as the producer and cease her life as a idol.
    Or should put an Female producer.".

    My reaction was a FACEPALM...
    Go to youtube or whathever and watch a gameplay of another player!
    Who want to see an anime version of a GAMEPLAY!?
    And...The original game was SO lesbian enought to make the anime entirely yuri?
    Did a kind of Kuroneko or Flower-read of Railgun-Index show at this game?
    I remember one of the ending of Idolm@ster was coupling with the P what is male and haven't a ending what the idols become an girlfriend of another idol.

    btw, the entire episode turned good one when I knew the producer is a original character, like the Ash of Pokémon.
    And will be better if someone like Azusa or Kotori became Producer's girlfriend.

    Yes, I'm not an Yuri lover, BL lover or loli lover.

    Looks like a pretty standard male protagonist. The kind that you see in just about every harem anime.

    Though, added points for the glasses being "cool" instead of the more "nerdy" variant. Or maybe it's just the way they're drawn.

    Mr. P-San makes me think of Aoki-sensei from Kodomo No Jikan as far as his appearance goes from the screenshot here. I may have a different impression after I get around to seeing an episode of Idolm@ster.

    Thank you SanChan/Artefact for letting me know of such good news! I'm actually surprised how many bases it covered in the first episode and how delightfully they introduced the majority of the characters.

    Also I nearly jumped out of my screen when nearly nineteen minutes into it when the screen went black and the question arose. I could have sworn it was addressing the viewers, but that would have been wishful thinking.

    So many people already facepalming about this anime when it just started and some are saying it's a K-On clone when Idolm@ster garnered more rage and fanbase then K-On did since ITS A GAME. K-ON IS A MANGA. AND IDOLMASTER IS MADE BY NAMCO BANDAI: THE THIRD LARGEST TOY AND GAME MAKER IN THE WORLD. Unless your a shallow anime fan, I should have heard of this game two years ago.
