A Certain Magical Index Idol Master Cameo

20081123index01

The recent eighth episode of A Certain Magical Index, in addition to a naked Index, brings with it what is said to be a Idol Master cameo with three of the Idols appearing as not so non-descript extras in a cafeteria reaction shot.

The characters featured are said to be 天海春香 / Haruka Amami, 如月千早 / Chihaya Kisaragi and 三浦あずさ / Azusa Miura. Haruka’s Xenoglossia seiyuu and that of Index are in fact one and the same person, 井口裕香 / Yuka Iguchi.

However, not all are fully convinced, so some closer examination is in order:

Let us pool our scrutiny:

Poll unavailable.

We seem to be seeing plenty of cameos of late, with Kannagi, Toradora, Hayate no Gotoku, and of course Zettai Karen Children, all getting many subtle and not so subtle guest appearances…

    There was a bad attempt at faking one, though.

    I'd wager it is meant to be one, but when I saw the episode the thought that it was a cameo took a long while to materialize, it wasn't an obvious one at all.

    That IS an idolm@ster cameo considering same VAs. Also, cameos don't always have to have the same palette colors (just look at other anime like SZS, Lucky Star or Hayate). It is undeniably them, however, some may be led astray since the designs more closely resemble the game artwork as opposed to Xenoglossia artwork.

    After 30 minutes of thinking about this I came to the realization that there can be only one straight answer, one that leaves no questions unanswered. ...maybe...~

    IMO that's a little too far fetched. Only thing I see is that those ribbons look a bit like Harukas', and that isn't enough to convince me :P

    I think people are just seeing things. Nowadays, just how do you design Extras without looking like someone else? I know if I were to make a cameo scene, I'd make it as obvious as possible, not "OMG it looks like Haruhi".

    Kinda like with the ZKC and the Hayate cameos.

    Oh, the fact that Index And Xenoglossia Haruka's seiyuu is the same, there might be a possibility that they made this cameo. Since the theme of the series was comedy, cameo appearances materialization is possible. :D

    I said yes, but it seems really subtle; like their hairstyles could be closer to the idols and have the right colours. Not really a cameo.

    If so, it's not enough... too generic to be considered a cameo.
