What are Ensemble Stars Music cards and how do they work?

Ensemble Stars Music cards represent the idols that you recruit throughout the game. When you obtain a card you unlock the corresponding version of an idol, allowing you to level them up, choose them for live performances, put them in your Idol Room, unlock their Idol Roads and stories, and equip them with outfits.

While there are certainly some cards that perform better than others, due to the nature of the game, we recommend simply picking and upgrading the cards of the idols you like the most rather than worrying about meta.

Cards come in five levels of rarity, from one-star to five-star, with one-star cards being the most common and five-star cards being the rarest. The rarer the card, the greater its max level, ability values, and max number of fans.

You begin the game with a copy of every one-star card to start you off, and you can choose one team to pull a random five-star idol from. After that, you can gain more cards through ‘scouting’. Scouting is Ensemble Stars Music’s gacha system, where you redeem specific currencies or tokens in exchange for new cards, which are randomised on each pull. Different banners offer increased drop rates on specific cards. You can click on a banner’s ‘card list’ to see the drop rate for each card.

Every card has its own unique details, which you can view by tapping the card button on the home screen, then selecting the card you want to inspect. Here are all the different details and what they mean.

SPP – five-star and four-star cards have an ‘SPP’ button at the top-left corner. This is their special performance, which you can unlock through their Idol Road. Each SPP corresponds to a specific song unique to the character, and this button allows you to check which song this card’s special performance is for

Change CG – upon reaching the end of a card’s Idol Road, you can ‘bloom’ a card. Bloomed cards receive different art, as well as an overall stat increase. The change CG button allows you to switch between the default and bloomed card artwork

Attributes – next to the title of a card, for example ‘(Practice)’ or ‘(An Idol)’, there’s a small, coloured icon that represents an attribute. There are four attributes in total – blue is brilliant, yellow is flash, red is sparkle, and green is glitter. Every card and song in Ensemble Stars Music aligns with one of these four attributes, with the exception of songs marked with a rainbow triangle which aligns with all attributes. When you have a card in your unit with an attribute that matches the song you’re playing, the card receives a bonus to all ability values

Fans – the number next to the heart at the top-right corner of the card represents how many fans the card has, and the max number of fans the card can acquire. The max number of fans a card can acquire depends on the rarity of the card, and if you’ve pulled any duplicates of that card. You gain more fans for a card by using it in live performances, and the number of fans you gain per performance increases based on how much BP you use. You also gain an increased amount of fans per live performance on the card’s featured character’s birthday. Reaching a certain number of total fans for a card is one of the conditions required for you to increase an idol’s rank. You can view this in the idol room. When you increase the rank of an idol, you unlock unique stories and voice clips for them

Level – below the name of the card, you can see the card’s current level, max level cap, how much experience is required before the card reaches the next level, and the level up button. Hit the level up button to use EXP tickets and level up the card. There are three types of EXP tickets – gold (L), silver (m), and bronze (s) – each of which offer different levels of EXP. You can acquire these through completing missions and performances. Leveling up a card increases its ability values, and unlocks different milestones in the Idol Road

Abilities – abilities are the different stats the card possesses. There are three different types of ability, each with their own scores unique to the card – Dance (Da), Vocal (Vo), and Performance (Pf) – all of which add up to the card’s overall ability level. Abilities dictate how well the idol performs in Lives, and increasing a card’s ability levels by purchasing upgrades on the Idol Road allows you to earn higher scores when using that card during Lives

Idol Road – to the right of the card is a yellow button where you can access the card’s Idol Road. Each card has its own Idol Road, where you can purchase boosts for skills and abilities, outfits, stories, voice clips, and backgrounds specific to the card. In order to purchase these items and upgrades, you need materials called ‘Pieces’ which come in multiple sizes and types. Next to the Idol Road button on the card’s page, you can see how far you’ve progressed through the Idol Road, and the icons below indicate how many outfits and backgrounds are available for purchase

Live Skills – below the Idol Road section of a card’s page, you can see the Live Skills the card possesses. There are three different kinds of Live Skills available in the game – Center, Live, and Support – which dictate the role the idol excels at during live performances. In order to activate a card’s Live Skills during a performance, you must hit a Live Skill note (a larger blue note with a white star at the centre), with good accuracy or better. Flaunting skills on stage earns you higher scores

And there we have it, a crash course in Ensemble Stars Music cards, including every card you can get in-game at the moment, and what all of their details and skills mean. We hope this helps you on your way to becoming a top music producer! If you’re looking to switch up the beat, check out our list of the best mobile games and try something new today.
