Idolmaster Puts Every Girl In A Mizugi

Mar 13, 2012 @ 9:48 CST


Seventh Blu-ray volume of The iDOLM@STER decides to take a less fashion spread themed and character specific approach to instead give otaku each one of the attractive idols underwater in their mizugi.

Leave it to The iDOLM@STER however to make a harem’s worth of females in their bikinis more artistic than anything else. While the girls do each wear a different mizugi, every swimsuit has been made the same hue – there’s a blue filter over the entire artwork, and this is made justified through the fact that they’re underwater. The idols are spaced out in an asymmetrical manner which proves exceptional when the jacket is viewed in full as seen below, or if folded in halves.

When viewing the art piece without taking into account the half-way cutoff, the balance is incredibly fascinating as it’s hard to say what or who exactly is the focal point – however, our eyes happen to be ensnared by Yukiho who sits arms flailed outward in her usual clumsy demeanor.

Cutting the image in half, visual interest respectively goes to the two on the far sides – Azusa and Haruka. The technique known as the “rule of thirds” is utilized on both of them – they’re each set off to the side, covering only a fragment of the overall artwork. As one will have noticed, even if not realizing of its cause prior, this gives off quite a good vibe as, take Haruka for example, she comes forward in a manner which wins over attention through informal balance – directing the onlooker’s eyes to not the center, but a specific section of the art.

And as a comical final touch to the image, one can see that there’s some amusing activities going on in the background of the cover – take for instance, our Hibiki and her spear. We’ve mentioned this before, yet indeed we must say it again – The iDOLM@STER is a series with artwork like no other as it always, without fail, achieves something true to both itself, as well as the basic principles of art and design.
