The World That Began to Change! is the fourteenth episode of THE iDOLM@STER anime. It originally aired on October 7, 2011.


Ever since the concert and an article by Yoshizawa, a famous reporter who is a friend of President Takagi, the idols have become very popular to the point of having to wear disguises in public. After appearing on a TV show and going back to their makeup room, Haruka and Yayoi encounter a member of Jupiter, Touma Amagase, who gives them an ominous warning. Back at 765 Production studio, everyone is waiting for a magazine, expecting to see a photo shoot of the idols on the cover, but as Iori brings it, the magazine shows instead Jupiter on the cover. Wanting to know what's going on, Junjirou and Yoshizawa believe this was the work of the President of 961 Production and Jupiter's manager, Takao Kuroi, who used his connections to have the magazine cover changed. It is later revealed that Kuroi and Junjirou were once friends in the music industry, but they had a falling out because Junjirou disapproved Kuroi's methods. Jealous of the 765PRO idols' recent popularity, Kuroi wants revenge against Junjirou by sabotaging his idols using any means necessary. The girls are irritated and attempt to confront Kuroi, but the Producer, Ritsuko and Junjirou tell them they should not fight dirty nor stoop as low as Kuroi does, and if they wish to beat him, they should do it fair and square. As the idols are still upset over the magazine cover, Haruka helps Kotori arrange their fan letters. Thanks to the encouraging letters from their fans, the idols realize it is their fans that they should be winning over rather than their rivalry with 961 Production and all of them agree to work hard for them.
