THE iDOLM@STER: Gravure For You! (アイドルマスター グラビアフォーユー!) is a sub-series of games in the Second Vision continuity. In the games, the player can take pictures of idols wearing different outfits while posed. The original release of the game totaled 9 individual volumes released in bundles with episodes of THE iDOLM@STER anime, containing the idols from 765 Production and guest idols from 876 Production. Another set of nine volumes in currently being released for characters from the Cinderella Girls anime.

THE iDOLM@STER Gravure For You!

When the series was originally released, volumes were bundled with episodes of THE iDOLM@STER anime and THE IDOLM@STER PERFECT IDOL series. Featuring all 13 765 Production characters, the player was able to take pictures of the idols in various poses and outfits on different sets. In addition, the last three volumes included Ai Hidaka, Eri Mizutani, and Ryo Akizuki for players to take pictures of. In every volume, a "Meet Your Idol" option allows for a short dialogue with the idol depicted on the cover of the volume. Every idol (including special idols) has a specific pose only they can do, and certain costumes can either limit movement or have different pose sets. All of the idol specific mixes were produced by Akitaka Tohyama.

On October 2, 2013, the series was re-released on the PS3 for iM@S CHANNEL. All nine volumes cost 1500 yen (with the exception of the first), and pictures can be saved into a gallery. Certain features were added to these volumes to make the photos more customizable including:

  • Camera Tilt via controller motion sensor tilt
  • The ability to add a black frame around the photos
  • Different photo sizes
  • The ability to display a guide grid
  • A vignetting effect
  • A button to change BGM playlists
  • 150% angle swing of the camera
  • An option to hide the menu

Interestingly, some of the sets from Gravure For You! were used in other games. The "Seaside" sets used in Volumes 1, 4, 6, and 8 were later reused as the "Tropical on the Beach" stage for THE iDOLM@STER ONE FOR ALL. The "Seaside" sets used in Volumes 3 and 9 were slightly edited versions of THE iDOLM@STER 2's "Beach Live" stage, and the "Live House" stage was a direct copy of the version from the same game. The "Classroom", "Winter Street Corner", "House Studio", "Studio Set", "Church", and "Fireworks" sets would all also appear in THE iDOLM@STER SHINY FESTA series. Despite being named differently, there seems to be no difference between the "Horizontal Line and Sand" and "Horizontal Line and Sailors" sets.
