** On the other hand, other viewers found the series boring and too safe, since avoiding the dramatic angles of previous series consequently left ''SideM'' without much of a plot to go forwards with.

* EvenBetterSequel: Although more game-centric than other adaptations, ''Side M'' is met with positive press all around due to having a likable and competent Producer, resolving issues that other adaptations reused maturely[[note]]the photoshoot was a non-issue due to rescheduling and the typhoon plot fell back in favor of 315 assisting a Jupiter concert; the drama with the "yellow" character didn't [[BrokenBase break any bases]] because of its subject matter and was resolved by the end of the episode[[/note]], and giving small but noticeable winks to the playerbase.

* BaseBreaker: Kaoru is liked, but he has his critics for his abrasive personality and his overwhelming similarities to the main series' Chihaya.

* {{Shipping}}: Just like its sister series, there is a lot of it. It either goes by the person they're closest to in their group (Teru/Tsubasa, Taiga/Ren), idols with a previous history (Rui/Hokuto), or anything inbetween.

Added DiffLines:

* UglyCute: The [=SideMini=] chibis have been known as somewhat creepy with their vacant stares and flat coloring. That said, there's still a lot of fanart of them, and fans find them strangely endearing.

* ContinuityLockout: Even by some game fans, admittion, the series seems very much geared towards fans of the original game, having convos and references to it that alienate some newcomers.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: It's a male idol franchise where the player can produce... guys in their mid-twenties to early thirties? Where more than half the obtainable cast is made up of full-grown adults in a genre that prizes youth? Where very few of them are considered {{Bishonen}}? Small wonder that the series isn't as popular as its [[VideoGame/EnsembleStars mobile]] [[VideoGame/IDOLiSH7 competitors]].
** The boys also get some flack for being "too masculine" for some female audiences, driving away potential franchise fans.

* ObviousBeta: ''Live on St@ge!'' is usually accused of this, with 3D models that look cheap (especially compared to the more detailed models found in ''Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage'' and ''Million Live! Theater Days'') and a rhythm system that's easy and repetitive to play.
