On the first day of Christmas, my true love for anime gave to me…
A charming idol.
When I first heard of The iDOLM@STER, my first thought was, “This looks interesting and entertaining. I wonder if there’s any idol who I’ll like…” Needless to say, I have found my charming idol amongst the thirteen idols of the series, in the form of Miura Azusa!
Miura Azusa is the oldest of all the idols, and as a result, has an “onee-san” atmosphere to her. She has a very carefree, gentle, clumpy personality, and her lack of direction often leads her to distant places getting lost. Her dream and motivation for becoming an idol is but a modest one; to find and fall in true love with her own special one. How nice and romantic!
In the eighth episode of The iDOLM@STER, Miura Azusa truly outshined all the other idols, when her ditsy personality led her on a merry fun trip around the city winning the hearts of many people alike in an attempt to get back to where she belongs. It goes without saying that her wedding dress attracted quite a bit of attention. I can certainly say that this was one of the most enjoyable episodes I’ve watched this year so far, with Azusa’s charming antics and some nice action scenes from Kikuchi Makoto. Also, that amazing dance and song, “Smoky Thrill,” in episode 5.
I am so hopelessly endeared to Azusa’s charming personality, and I just can’t resist adoring her!
