THE iDOLM@STER SP Producer's Guide

Today is April Fools' but I'm not going to do any joke, because is not a tradition in the Spanish speaking countries (our "prank day" is December 28).

Yesterday I bought THE iDOLM@STER SP Producer's Guide (Enterbrain, 1995 yen).

Since this is my first iM@S guidebook, I can't compare with the previously released ones, but I feel that the contents are a bit lacking...

The first part consist in character profiles, with a nice pic of each girl.

Lovely Takane.

After the description of the game mechanics, the book is divided into each idol.

"Idol upbringing" and "Tension management" sections are only a brief advice for each.

And each girl have a complete list of the Communication events. It doesn't give the correct answers but an explanation of the event. Includes if the event gives an e-mail or not.

For each girl is included a photo with every costume, and includes an accesory list:

At the end there's a couple of interviews, one with iM@S staff and the other with the voice actresses Imai Asami (Chihaya), Nakamura Eriko (Haruka), Shimoda Asami (Ami-Mami), Numakura Manami (Hibiki), Hara Yumi (Takane) and Hasegawa Akiko (Miki).
