Just a heads up, the director isn't actually changed, it's just previously he's using a pen name.

Honestly...to add to this... saying that the Opening is done by the in-game idol group Yumenosaki Dream Stars... is a little weird.

That is to say, Yumenosaki Dream Stars is compromised of all the different idol units that are in-game.

Real life seiyuu units being credited to the in-universe group is not too uncommon for idol franchises, and is officially what the CD single will be credited to. You even see this for non-idol shows where they make units based on the seiyuu groups. Some may even go on to do music for other shows. (Such as Earphones or Wake Up, Girls)

In this case it's also simpler than listing 37 names individually.

Well, I guess so. It just struck to me as weird. I guess playing the game for 4 years has made me too literal in a sense. At least they could have mentioned that Yumenosaki Dream Stars is compromised of all the in-game units.
