I like rhythm games and idol anime, so naturally I picked these up the last time I was in Japan:
BUT, since I’d never actually watched the series, I figured I should watch the first two seasons of it so I’d know the characters and plots, and it took me a little while to get around to that. Fortunately, it was a pretty good show and went well with my recent fitness kick. I still have the movie to watch, and then I understand that there’s at least one more show with a completely different cast of characters.
The rhythm games, well, I haven’t really gotten the hang of the system yet so I’ll reserve judgement. It’s nothing like the Project Diva games or IA/VT – rather, it’s very similar to The Idolmaster iOS games, and I suspect it may have been designed for mobile and ported to Vita. I’m especially having trouble realizing when a note is a hold note, so I drop a TON of combos when one comes along. The music is catchy, though, and it’s got a fair bit of customization as far as outfits and stages go, so I think these were worth the 12 bucks or so each cost me.
