301,001 Japanese yen is the exact price the winner with the final bid at the special IDOLM@STER charity auction will give. The end of the auctioning process came after the 447 bids and quite a long time. At the end, the successful bidder will have the incredible opportunity to own a personalized, customized and very special drama CD with voice actors by choice and a story by choice. Isn’t that just awesome?!
The special drama CD will be a 15-minutes long story voiced by three of the main characters in the IDOLM@STER anime TV series that tell the story of 13 prospective girls from 765 Production talent studio who are trying to make a name for themselves in the local (and why not even international) show business field and fight the incredibly harsh competition in Japan. The full list of available seyuu for the unique IDOLM@STER drama CD is:
Eriko Nakamura as Haruki Amami
Akiko Hasegawa as Miki Hoshii
Asami Imai as Chihaya Kisaragi
Mayako Nigo as Yayoi Takatsuki
Azumi Asakura as Yukiho Hagiwara
Hiromi Hirata as Makoto Kikuchi
Asami Shimoda as Ami or Mami Futami
Rie Kugimiya as Iori Minase
Chiaki Takahashi as Azusa Miura
Yumi Hara as Takane Shijou
Manami Numakura as Hibiki Ganaha
Naomi Wakabayashi as Ritsuko Akizuki
Naturally, there are also rules for the story that would be made: there should not be any romantic relationships between the idols and male characters and also, the studio keeps the right to decline or change the script if it considers it inappropriate for the show.
All funds raised from the auction will go to the Japanese Red Cross in order to help the reconstruction and reform in the areas affected by the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake (Higashi Nihon Daishinsai).
