** The fact that it is a Ryuuguu Komachi concert is besides the point and pretty irrelevant to begin with. The issues here are, one, making sure the "opening act" runs for as long as possible to buy time, and two, making sure the idols all get adequate amounts of rest so they don't collapse or burn out from fatigue. The question was why Miki was allowed to do those two songs in a row and strain herself, and why the Producer even contemplated cutting a song, when a viable option (namely switching the order of Chihaya's performance with Miki's second song) exists to give Miki some rest and ''still'' allow the "opening act" to run for as long as it would have run in the canon episode. If the aim was to buy time, then surely, cutting a song is counterproductive, when it could simply be postponed. So long as ''Heart of the Marionette'' was sung at ''some point'' before ''Jibun Rest@rt'', the absolute last song the idols had, there shouldn't have been any issue with postponing it down ''at least one space'' on the setlist to give Miki that time to rest between performances they wanted to give her in the first place. It's not a "last option" to make Miki sing those two songs consecutively, when Chihaya's performance could have been placed between them. This, as mentioned, gives Miki time to rest, so she wouldn't have suffered as severe a burnout, and it doesn't actually affect Chihaya's fatigue level, since she had some time to rest already at the point in time when the ''Day of the Future'' was completed.

* Japanese idols usually have ContractualPurity, right? Yet one of Makoto's image songs, ''Agent Yoru wo Yuku'', is about paying a callboy to, well, fuck her brains out and is not even being particularly subtle about it. Wouldn't that cause problems or are the actual subjects of the song irrelevant as long as the image of purity is sustained in action?


* In the last episode of the anime, Ritsuko go on stage with the girls to sing the song [[HardWorkMontage "Itsumade mo,]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7CVqPRF3c4 Dokomade mo"]], wich is nice and all, but it doesn't explain why was she ''wearing'' a stage outfit identical to the one of the girls are wearing in that moment? Early in the episode, she's clearly wearing her suit. One could say that she wore when she was proofing it, but she wouldn't be wearing it ''after'' the girls were already on stage. Of course, the Producer or the President, or even Kotori could have delayed her or something, but since nothing is shown onscreen, or even implied, it just comes as a little too convenient to not break the SuspensionOfDisbelief.

** There's actually a bit of FridgeBrilliance behind this. In the first console ''iM@S'', when Azusa first meets the Producer, she immediately wonders aloud if he's the Destined One. From that moment on she sticks by the Producer for her idol career. Yet while being under his care, she's rather flirtatious, schemes up situations where he's posing as her fiancé (or subtlety dating), and gets ''REALLY'' angry at people who insult him. She never minds if he's a bit perverted and quickly accepts he stole her SacredFirstKiss. In short, Azusa had LoveAtFirstSight for the Producer: becoming an idol was only a pretext for being with him on a constant basis. Even putting that aside, in the other renditions of ''iM@S'', Azusa has indicated she might quit being an idol upon finding her Destined One. The career is a means to an end, rather than the actual end itself. Given that by canon the Producer is her Destined One, the game simply handles the situation by having their relationship being a secret.

* Regarding SideM.... Why the hell would some of these men with very high paying, important, respectable jobs quit their current job and become idols? For instance, Kaoru Sakuraba is a former surgeon. He went through medical school, likely saved countless lives... And decided to leave that in favor of becoming an idol?

* In the Nemuri Hime trailer in the movie: How could Iori do all those stunts during the fight with Yayoi? I mean, she isn't even very athletic and according to trick-turorial pages those are in advanced level and it takes you a lot to learn basic stunts, in fact what she did is what only a professional gymnastic does, not even Makoto can do a fight scene like that.

* One would think that a multibillion dollar global corporation like BandaiNamcoEntertainment, wouldn't have GratuitousEnglish and BlindIdiotTranslation, as seen in song titles or advertising posters. Corporate interviews have proven they have professional English translators on staff, and the company has localization offices in the USA and UK. A quick email or phone call gets access to these resources with minimal cost and a one day turn around. Then again, maybe they just don't care about it...

* While Miki performing two songs with strenuous choreography in succession in episode 13 was meant to show her maturity and desire to challenge herself in light of having been rejected for Ryuuguu Komachi, one can't help but think that scene was just there for drama and to create a false predicament. Since Chihaya would sing ''Me ga Au Toki'' after ''Heart of the Marionette'', what exactly is stopping the idols from subbing that performance from Chihaya in between ''Day of the Future'' and ''Heart of the Marionette'' so Miki can have that bit of rest in between, without having to cut any songs? Saying they can't alter the setlist anymore seems like a weak explanation, given that the setlist itself was flimsily put together at the last minute. Thus, it seems unlikely the audience would even have any knowledge of the setlist coming into the concert, and likely won't miss a thing if a last minute down to the wire change was implemented. As Chihaya wasn't performing in ''Day of the Future'' as a singer or backup dancer, she would still get ''at least'' one songs' worth of rest before having to perform if her ''Me ga Au Toki'' performance ''was'' placed in between Miki's two songs. If, hypothetically, there were any other songs between ''Me ga Au Toki'' and ''Jibun Rest@rt'', what was stopping the idols from postponing ''Heart of the Marionette'' to an ''even later'' point in the concert before ''Jibun Rest@rt'' to give Miki even more rest?

If, hypothetically, there were any other songs between ''Me ga Au Toki'' and ''Jibun Rest@rt'', what was stopping the idols from postponing ''Heart of the Marionette'' to an ''even later'' point in the concert before ''Jibun Rest@rt'' to give Miki even more rest?


* While Miki performing two songs with strenuous choreography in succession in episode 13 was meant to show her maturity and desire to challenge herself in light of having been rejected for Ryuuguu Komachi, one can't help but think that scene was just there for drama and to create a false predicament. Since Chihaya would sing ''Me ga Au Toki'' after ''Heart of the Marionette'', what exactly is stopping the idols from subbing that performance from Chihaya in between ''Day of the Future'' and ''Heart of the Marionette'' so Miki can have that bit of rest in between, wihtout having to cut any songs? Saying they can't alter the setlist anymore seems like a weak explanation, given that the setlist itself was flimsily put together at the last minute. Thus, it seems unlikely the audience would even have any knowledge of the setlist coming into the concert, and likely won't miss a thing if a last minute down to the wire change was implemented. As Chihaya wasn't performing in ''Day of the Future'' as a singer or backup dancer, she would still get at least one songs' worth of rest before having to perform if her ''Me ga Au Toki'' performance ''was'' placed in between Miki's two songs. If, hypothetically, there were any other songs between ''Me ga Au Toki'' and ''Jibun Rest@rt'', what was stopping the idols from postponing ''Heart of the Marionette'' to an ''even later'' point in the concert before ''Jibun Rest@rt'' to give Miki even more rest?

** As far as I know (and my knowledge only comes from anime, so take it with a grain of salt) it's not strictly forbidden, it's just impolite and discouraged since you might upset the other patrons. There were only the 765 Pro girls in the water and they didn't mind, and there was also no staff to call the twins out on it, so they just did (and it's VERY in-character for them).
