I am a fan of "The Idolmster
" anime series which was based on the video game that I never played. The game play had the player acting as "The Producer" who manages one of twelve aspiring idol singers and controls the idol's dance movements on stage...The Producer's decisions and computer audience approval during the song performances determine if the idol will progress to the next level or if the idol's career ends before achieving top stardom. The anime had a "Get Along Gang" type ensemble cast with the 12 idol girls and the Producer trying to make it as top idols together.
The success of the game has created a recent spin-off game/anime series titled "The Idolmster
: Cinderella Girls" in which the player as the Producer, selects one girl from a group of 12 to 15 characters in each of the three personality categories ("Cute", "Cool", "Passion") to sing together as a team on stage...again, computer audience approval and how each idol gets along with the others determine if the team reaches the top of stardom.
Here, since the Get Along Gang follows the "idolmster
" theme of "friendship and group unity", I split the gang kids into the Idolmster
The "Cool" group- They don't exactly display their emotions for everyone to see all too much but they are quietly determined to see things through.
