The AnimeOfTheGame Anime/TheIdolmaster was mostly based around Videogame/TheIdolmaster2 but it [[AdaptationExplanationExtrication tweaked]] a lot the backstories and storylines, so who watched the anime, isn't spoiled (mostly) to the story of the game, and vice-versa. Several manga were also based on the game; Coloful Days, which is set before the game, and ''Manga/TheWorldIsAllOne'', which explores a possible game scenario if Haruka, Hibiki, and Yukiho were a unit together.

** To elaborate, NaomiW akabayashi (Ritsuko) and Creator/AsamiShimoda (Ami/Mami) were available, but Creator/RieKugimiya (Iori) and Creator/ChiakiTakahashi (Azusa) were already with their schedules packed by the time the game was in production, so as to not outright cut their character from the game (and receive a huge backlash from the fandom) they used this to create the Ryuugu Komachi. That is the reason Ami and Mami are not TagTeamTwins by ''[=iM@S2=]'', and only Mami has a route, otherwise it would double the workload (read paycheck) of their voice actress. Comparatively, Ritsuko interacts much more in practically all the other girls routes, compared to Iori and Asuza.

The iDOLM@STER 2 is the fourth game in the Videogame/TheIdolmaster Franchise, the second in the 2nd Vision line of the franchise, and the most well known worldwide, not because it has an English version (like most others products of the franchise, it's [[NoExportForYou only sold in Japan]]) but since it was ported for the PS3, allowed for more easy access, because, contrary to the {{Xbox360}}, the PS3 version isn't region locked to Japan and Asian consoles.

* CustomUniform - Zigzagged with Ryuugu Komachi's outfits (Palace of Dragon and, in PS3 only, Princess Melody). Iori, Ami, Azusa and Ritsuko have differing appearances for their versions while everyone else's is the same... but the outfits were made for Ryuugu Komachi specifically, so it is technically their uniform and everyone else's would be the Custom.

* StoryOverwrite - Played straight and then subverted. It doesn't matter the amount of ''Danketsu'' your unit has; at the end of week 10 it plummets by the storyline loss in the festival against Ryuuguu Komachi. Then subverted in that if the ''danketsu'' was high enough the next week they'll come as if nothing happened, but only in the PS3 version.

The producer led him to believe he would do just that, but in fact supports Hibiki even more after what Touma said, which leads to some of the most hilarious dialogue between him and the Producer in the entire game.]]

The game actually takes part in an AlternateContinuity from the other games (with the exception of ''Dearly Stars'') where the Idols made their debut six months before the start of the game but are struggling to make their mark on the industry. That was until Ritsuko got permission to produce her own Idol Unit: Ryuugu Komachi, a three-girl idol group where the strengths of each girl cover the weaknesses of their team-mates.
