It's hard to believe that the girls of THE iDOLM@STER have aged little, if not at all, since the first time they appeared in Japanese arcades two years ago. This is a reasonable facsimile of what might have been two years since its arcade release.
Clockwise, from the top center:
Haruka would still be striving to become what she's always dreamed of, a starlet.
Makoto would still retain her feminine side--she's grown her hair out--but she still loves sports.
Azusa would be living a peaceful life with her betrothed.
Chihaya would be studying to become a choral teacher.
Yayoi, with all her charm, would have filled out nicely and soon attend high school.
Iori would become more ladylike, and take up dollmaking--a hobby inspired by the Usa-chan doll she once had.
Ami and Mami would look cooler, but still have their differences.
Yukiho would still be learning how to like boys, and to get along with her father.
Miki would be living with her "Honey," just like in the alternate ending.
And Ritsuko would do away with her glasses and have her hair tied into one braid. But suddenly, she would be studying at an American university.
So there's my opinion of what could have happened between theArcade release and now. But you can feel free to have your own say in this matter.
THE iDOLM@STER and Ms. Pac-Man belong to Namco Bandai. Characters were designed by the man who worked on Gunbuster.
