Do you personally think that the last CG election was rigged?

If by rigged, you mean that the devs cheated votes and gave more to Rin so she’d win, then no. However, the election WAS set up in a way that was set up for, well, UZUKI to win the election.

To better understand the situation of the Cinderella Girls elections, it’s a good idea to first look at Cinderella Girl elections past. It’s best to remember that the majority of votes come from people who BUY votes from buying gacha rolls.

The winner of the first election was Totoki Airi, with the others in the top 5 being Ranko, Rika, Nina, and Akane. As we can see, there is a huge slant towards Passion idols in the top 5. Well, at the time, the current gacha campaign was Rika’s SR. At the time, there weren’t very many powerful SRs for Passion types, the only ones being the Mika one preceding her, a Miki SR from when the Comp gacha system ran rampant, and the Futami SRs. In my view, there was a huge Passion slant because Passion Ps spent the money to get their hands on a Rika SR. Also Rika hadn’t received an SR prior to her CD announcement so all those Rika fans saving their money for an SR now had extra voting leverage. This lead to Rika as well as other Passions placing high, when their positions in future elections are lower. Additionally, as for why Airi won the elction, Airi’s only other SR prior to the election was her ranking card in a Valentine’s Day Event which was dubbed “Bloody Valentine’s” due to people spending so much money get her limited quantity of ranking SRs. I can’t tell you too much as I wasn’t around then. But yes, Airi was a very popular character at the time (for boobvious reasons) and people saw this as their chance to get another SR, leading to her victory as the first Cinderella Girl.

So from the first election, we can gather that type and character popularity can play a huge role in the election. Character featured in the gacha is also an influence.

Moving on to the second election, CG is a little more established with three CD batches and a much broader playerbase. The election comes around and this time, the stakes are not only becoming the Cinderella Girl, but also being guaranteed a spot on the CD that would become Kagayaku Sekai no Mahou. This time, Ranko is the primary gacha SR. Anastasia also was notable for a few days when the election started managing to make it first place in the preliminary results (Shinobu also made it into top 50, which is also notable since she likely would not have made it in there without that push from being featured). At this time as well, there was an event with Yume Narumiya, a Cool idol, as a ranking. In the event that she was featured in, Type plays a major part in getting point multipliers. Having the gacha idols also gave major multipliers as well. So succeeding in the event meant buying the gacha SRs, and consequently, votes. Because of Ranko being prominently featured, as well as pressure Cool type Producers to perform well, Cool got major representation in the final election results with Ranko, Anastasia, Rin, and Kaede (plus Sachiko).

So from the second election, we can confirm suspicions that the type of idols featured in the election gacha can sway the votes IMMENSELY. Being a popular character in the gacha can also practically guarantee you at least top 5, as seen with Ranko and Anastasia.

The third election comes around and circumstances are fairly similar to the last two. Uzuki (and new gen) featured as the gacha SRs, with Chieri as the event for ranking. This time, Cute was the type that was biased and Uzuki was the strongest card in the gacha. There was also a key element that separated this election from the ones preceding it: The WONDERFUL M@GIC gachas. What the WONDERFUL M@GIC gachas essentially did was eliminate other popular idols that could’ve possibly have overtaken Uzuki and keep her from winning the election. Miho, Anastasia, Kanako, Kirari, Anzu, the Jougasakis, and Ranko all missed getting on the CD, while Kaede only made it as the third spot on We’re the friends! rather than top 5. However, ultimately, Rin is much more popular than Uzuki, which led to Rin overtaking her in votes and consumption, thus winning her the Cinderella Girl position. There is still a bias in Cute though. Nana, all of her fans having their money saved from the WONDERFUL M@GIC gacha slaughter would be able to pay for her to be in top 5, and Chieri was an already popular character with her placing exacerbated by her SR being ranking. However, being featured in this popular gacha was enough to get Uzuki AND Mio into the top 5 as well along with Rin.

So from the third election, character popularity and being featured in teh election gacha play a major part in determining who wins the Cinderella Girl title. Additionally, producers of certain idols can be weakened before the election with the release of certain SRs, crippling their spending power and ability to buy votes for the election.

In conclusion, the election was NOT rigged in Rin’s favor. The election was set up in Uzuki’s favor actually, going so far as to make a We’re the friends SR+ campaign card for Uzuki instead of Rin. RIn’s victory and popularity are legitimate, and was only bolstered by being featured along with Uzuki and Mio. I personally do not feel the election was rigged, just that circumstances lead to some idols being favored more than others in certain elections.

"CHARACTERS IN CINDERELLA GIRLS DON’T GET ANY CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT"

Kudo Shinobu’s character development:

the most popular character in tumblr’s iM@S fandom, Shijou Takane’s character development:

trash

children’s television show with defined setting that actually has an overarching story with well defined cast, meshing a school and idol setting really well together and just being everything an idol anime should aspire to be

>

kinda SoL kinda idol anime with good characters adequate plot but overall lack of development with certain characters and too much emphasis being on character specific dramas rather than general idol activities

>

SoL anime with a school setting trying to pretend to be idol anime but only gets by because the characters and music are REALLY fucking good

fight me

anime wise i agree, song wise im putting it as LL > im@s = aikatsu

LL > im@s >= aikatsu

for me too but i am trash and rarely listen to much music

Aikatsu > iDOLM@STER > Love Live

in terms of idol anime tbch

i only just realized that the post meant “liking” in the LIKE LIKE sense and not the “as a decent human being” kind of like

i find it interesting that when it comes to liking girls I’m just like GIRLS ALL GIRLS YES PERFECT GIRLS but with boys i’m like you must fit criteria 1-9 but 9 is optional only if you completely fill criteria 10-13 with a non-optional essay on 21st century sexism due by 5am

I don’t call that interesting. More like “prejudice” “discrimination” or “inherent bias”

could someone please come pick up their crying child
