Here is the first promotional video for The iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls anime:
The IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls is a mobile social game developed by Mobage and published by Bandai Namco Games. The game involves the player to interact with other players, where they need to perform various tasks. The game features a total of 100 idols to be collected, who are represented as trading cards in the game. The game acts out like other social games where you will need to use a form of stamina to do a task – where it is refilled over time. The game has been reported to earn 1 Billion Yen (~ 10 Million USD) per month from in-game purchases of items and idols, and has over 4 million users as of April this year. A live concert of the game with all the voice actresses, Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls 1st Live Wonderful M@gic!!, was held at the Maihama Amphi Theater in Chiba Prefecture where the anime adaptation was announced.
Here are some stills from the PV:
The iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls anime will be airing in Japan from January 9th at midnight (effectively the 10th) during the Winter 2014/2015 anime season. Further information on the series will release in the near future.
