|} THE IDOLM@STER Live For You! is an OVA based on THE iDOLM@STER Live for You!. It was originally packaged with the limited edition release of Live for You! and was eventually officially posted on Namco's Nico Nico Douga channel.

Storyline

This OVA takes place the night before an iDOLM@STER Fan Concert is to be put on by 765 Production.

The idols Haruka Amami, Iori Minase, Miki Hoshi, Chihaya Kisaragi, Makoto Kikuchi, Yukiho Hagiwara, Yayoi Takatsuki, Ritsuko Akizuki and Ami and Mami Futami bid each other farewell the night before the concert, but on the way home Haruka, Miki and Chihaya get lost and end up staying overnight at a mansion in the middle of nowhere (complete with a hotspring).

They end up fleeing in the middle of the night when it appears that they have stumbled on a mafia ring’s secret money laundering plans, but it is later revealed that Miki set this up all along in cooperation with the producer to create a realistic live video of an idols trouble before the important concert for entertainment purposes.

They continue to be hopefully lost when their truck back turns out to be the wrong one, making them realize they've been wandering the entire time completely lost. When all seems lost, Iori uses her family's GPS and helicopter to locate and fly them back just in time for the concert.

Once there, the idols reunite and head in to perform the show.
