idolmastereventheader.pngHeya THE IDOLM@STER fans!

To commemorate the upcoming new movie, THE IDOLM@STER MOVIE: Kagayaki No Mukou He!, Nico Live is promoting THE IDOLM@STER with a week's worth of awesome live streams!

Oh, and be sure to timeshift any past programs you may have missed!



gero.jpgHey utaite fans!

FM radio and Nico Live collide to bring you the weekly live stream
show - "Wktk Window" on Saturday each week! And this week's
guest is utaite extraordinaire Gero!

For those in the dark about Gero, he is a fervent utaite with a
powerful set of lungs and low-pitched, albeit somewhat raspy
voice also capable of reaching high octaves. Gero loves to put
pure emotion into his songs, making him a prominent singer
among the myriad of utaite on Niconico.

television Anime "Tokyo Ravens"!

Greetings Dragon's Crown fans!

As a token of our appreciation for making Dragon's Crown a hit, voice actors

and special guests are going to take on the newest content released in the 5th
major update; including the new randomly generated dungeon--the Tower of Mirages!

The Tower of Mirages can be accessed by playing in Ultimate difficulty, which becomes available after clearing the ninth Labyrinth of Chaos level. Will this new difficulty and dungeon peril prove to be overwhelming for our Let's Players? Watch to find out!
