IDOLM@STER Blu-ray & Gravure For You! Vol. 3

With a delay of only two weeks, this is the review of the third Blu-ray of iDOLM@STER and Gravure For You! Vol. 3 for PS3.

The episodes included are 6, 7 and 8. Includes the usual features; creditless endings and the extended episode previews from the website.
The extra audio commentary track this time is by Wakabayashi Naomi (Ritsuko), Nigo Mayako (Yayoi) and Kugiyama Rie (Iori) for episodes 6 and 7 and Takahashi Chiaki (Azusa), Hirata Hiromi (Makoto) and Hasegawa Akiko (Miki) for episode 8.

This time the extras included (besides the usual postcards with the images from the endings and the I-Gra!! magazine) are the bonus cd Perfect Idol 02 and the booklet Key Art Collection Volume 1.

I-Gra!! this month covers Yukiho and Ritsuko. In the picture, a short manga by Kurose Kousuke

Perfect Idol 02, that contains four tracks: "Coffee Ippai no Image" (sung by Ami-Mami, Makoto and Hibiki), "Positive! -TRANCE Rearrange Mix-" (Ami-Mami), "Jitensha -HOUSE Rearrange Mix-" (Makoto) and "GO MY WAY!! -HOUSE Rearrange Mix- " (Hibiki). I don't know why they bother with remixes, since most of them are awful.

Key Art Collection Volume 1 is a 62 pages booklet that contains selected genga illustrations from the first 6 episodes. Sorry for the quality of the photos, my camera is very temperamental when taking photos of black lines in not-so-white backgrounds.

Gravure For You! Vol. 3 setting this time is at the beach with the "Vivid bikini" and in the street with their personal winter outfits.
