THE iDOLM@STER: SideM (アイドルマスター サイドエム Aidorumasutaa Saido Emu) is the all-male spinoff of the THE iDOLM@STER franchise. It focuses on 46 voiced idols in 15 units and is a multimedia project spanning two mobile games, several live performances, manga, a 13-episode TV anime, and more.

It was initially released as a mobile game on Mobage on February 7, 2014, but was quickly shut down due to server issues. The game reopened on July 17, 2014. Voices for idols had begun to be implemented into the game on March 15, 2015.

SideM title screen

SideM's first game is run on Mobage, a mobile gaming platform. It has similar gameplay to Cinderella Girls and Million Live! in that the basics of the game revolves around regenerating stamina and social elements. Idols in SideM are represented by trading cards of three different rarities—Normal (N), Rare (R), and Super Rare (SR), each with an Unchanged and Changed (+) version.

The Mobage can be played in both the mobile browser, on a mobile app, or on a computer through AndApp.

LIVE ON ST@GE!—often shorted to LOS, MSute, or MStage—was announced at the THE iDOLM@STER SideM 2nd STAGE: ~ORIGIN@L STARS~ concert as another mobile game for the series. It was later released on August 30th, 2017. Like the SideM Mobage game, it revolves around collecting cards. However, there are less social elements in that players cannot contact other players or trade cards. It has an additional rhythm game and MV section where the player can watch the idols perform in the songs.

LOS can be played on most mobile devices.

On May 16, 2015, Lantis released a PV promoting SideM's 1st concert, 1st STAGE ~ST@RTING!~, for December 6 of the same year. The PV promotes the four units that were voiced at the time (Jupiter, DRAMATIC STARS, Beit, and High×Joker) and hints at additional guests to be later revealed. Since then, SideM has held annual lives, each with their own unique theme.

SideM has also numerous live-esque events, such as Five-St@r Party!!, which intended to further promote the anime series through games, short dramas, and performances. Similarly to SideM's sister franchise, events under the PRODUCER MEETING title focus on skits and cross-unit performances with greater encouragement for fan participation.


On a much smaller scale, SideM has also held various promotional events for CD releases, specifically for the ST@RTING LINE series and WORLD TRE@SURE series, as well as a mini live during the early years of LIVE ON ST@GE's release.
