Japanese Net Users mMarvel at the Evolution of The Idolmaster’s Graphics Over the Past 10 Years

Longtime fans of video game franchise The Idolmaster celebrate over 10 years of musical idol-rearing fun with comparison pictures of the series’ graphics over time.

The Idolmaster, stylized as THE iDOLM@STER, is a series of rearing/rhythm video games originally released as an arcade game in 2005.
