IdolMaster fans have been stunned to learn that IdolMaster 2 will be adding a trio of hot bishonen to its traditional line-up of pubescent girls, even as a number of traditional fan favourites have been dumped from the game.

“Alice or Guilty”:

The three boy idol unit (including, appropriately enough, a 14-year-old called “Shota”) is known as “Jupiter”:

Presumably their inclusion is intended as a gambit to broaden the game’s appeal to include the as yet untapped yaoi-doujinshi consuming fujoshi market.

The changes are likely to provoke a creepy IdolMaster otaku reaction (if not a rebellion) – announced before the surprise addition of “Jupiter” was the removal of of four of the girls (Iori, Ami, Azusa and Ritsuko) from the playable roster, infuriating their fans, as well as a change in seiyuu for another of the girls.
