The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Theater is a five-panel gag manga series, which began publication in The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls mobile game app. The series, which is irregularly serialized, is described as a “cute, comical” manga that followed the idols’ daily lives outside of the games.
Kadokawa currently publishes collected volumes of the title under their ASCII Media Works imprint. The sixth compiled volume hit Japanese bookstores on March 27.
In addition to the anime series, the manga has inspired a mini audio drama that plays on the franchise’s official radio show.
Daisuki streamed the first season of The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Theater in North America.
