* {{Defictionalization}}: Or at least something between this and FakeRealTurn, regarding the live concerts. Though seiyuu idols, in the form of voice actors doubling as singers, have pretty much been around as long as the anime industry itself, only recently has the idolization of the industry ramped up. When iM@S began, its earliest concert was [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm18238389 a small concert done to promote the game]]. Creator/YumiHara had mentioned [[http://www.afachan.asia/2015/04/seiyuu-invterview-cast-idolmster/ in an interview]] that even when she started out as a seiyuu (in 2008), seiyuu idols were still a rarity. Since then, iM@S has continually focused its efforts on giving better live performances each year. Especially with ''Cinderella Girls'', ''Million Live'', and ''[=SideM=]'' coming on board, the line continues to blur between idols and seiyuu. From a live performance that numbered in a few dozen, to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFI4_HQoyx0 a concert of 30,000 fans]], not bad for an arcade game.

Added DiffLines:

* DuelingGames: Played straight, it would be DreamCClub. However within the franchise itself ''Cinderella Girls'' and ''Million Live'' are fueling a small rivalry. Some gamers are greater fans of one over the other, and upset NamcoBandai divides attention between the two properties for equal exposure... it is claimed both lack a dedicated anime or console game because of this. Those who enjoy the original ''765 Pro'' characters and care nothing for the spinoffs, make the same claim for ''CG'' and ''ML'' taking away attention from the original series. On the brightside all three properties are massive successes and the NamcoBandai attention division only delays things.''Cinderella Girls'' has its own anime, and several ''Million Live'' idols are in the ''iM@S'' movie as guest characters.

* BadExportForYou: The American release of the Shiny Festa games are practically oozing with this trope. For starters, the original release price was $55, which may be acceptable if you were importing the original PSP versions, but compared to other iOS games or even American releases of standard handheld games, it's a steep asking price (especially for those wanting to buy all three versions, which would total to $165). On top of this, the games themselves were badly localized, featuring song names that were left untranslated unless they were already Romanized, [[TooLongDidntDub jokes that make absolutely no sense in English]], [[TheyJustDidntCare dialogue text that goes beyond the confines of the dialogue box]], and several obvious typos such as "[[MemeticMutation Hoobies]]" instead of "Hobbies". Oh, and as of March 2016, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes the games are no longer available on the iOS App Store]].
