In response to the ridiculous popularity and successful sales of The iDOLM@STER’s first five Cinderella Girls’ albums, its been decided that a new CD will release every week – goth loli Ranko Kanzaki leading the way.
Five albums were released for The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls’ top five most popular idols, and all five CDs effortlessly took five of ten available slots on Oricon’s top 10 singles chart – the lazy loli Anzu Futuba ranking at fourth, and the rest of the idols taking spot six through nine. As result, more albums are to come, one every week for five total weeks, making another batch of five – and the first idol to be part of this new initiative is Ranko Kanzaki, a cute occultist with quite an impressive chest considering her age of only 14 years.
At this rate, it is likely that after this set of five, another five will follow, and so on – so long as sales thrive.
There’s some obvious pocket stuffing intent behind this – the profits to be made here, given that The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls has several hundreds of idols, and millions of fans, is unimaginable. However at least it shows that when done right, CDs will sell – and the many iDOLM@STER loving otaku out there are definitely more than happy at the news of more merchandise to throw money at. Even if one isn’t intending to purchase a single of these albums however, they surely should still feel excited at this news as it means more tasteful CD cover artwork to enjoy.
The sheer expanse of The iDOLM@STER is becoming more so unbelievable with every venture to stem from it – a multitude of various game series, an anime, CDs, and all sorts of miscellaneous avenues one will simply get a headache attempting to fully list out.
It probably was already impossible, although now it’s clearer than ever – there’s no stopping these idols.
