Since we've now got some Okada trivia for it I figure I'd start a thread
- They wanted to remove Okada Mari from the AKB0048 staff because the production is running late on Aquarion EVOL,
and she got really mad
. But it sounds like they gave her the AKB0048 job after making the promise that EVOL wouldn't be running late... and it is. Oh man.
- Sounds like she's been struggling to manage to find a way to make 9 songstresses shine as opposed to 1-2 in a series like Macross.
This makes me wonder what it looks like when Okada gets mad?
Does she go tsun tsun or go on full yandere mode?
Lawl Okada drama.
Considering she created characters like Tsuruko and Hiromi (and to a lesser extent Minko, but she's a complete failure compared to these two), I'd say she's probably the type of person that's nice normally but a roundabout
when angered using sarcastic and snarky words to the recipient.
But really, she should just delegate the scripts if she's that busy. Okada calm down bro, you don't need to write (and pervify) everything
That shit sounds funny. Where do you get info on these?
Found it here in the
Okada will have to play her cards right while juggling multiple projects on a tightrope; either she play ball nicely with the production committee (especially as producer Akimoto holds the purse strings) or lose her contract and get blackballed (the Japanese, I believe, have a very long memory as far as transgressions are concerned and therefore consider reputation as essential to successful employment).
I'm not sure exactly what you have in mind that could go so wrong the someone would want to blackball Okada.
But anyway, I chuckled a bit after reading that Akimoto said "Okada is a genius".
Wonder if Okada is going to top off the amount of tears in BRS,I mean just look at
This week, we have a winner here in 0048's Stage 3, and as frere right here says, Okada resisted the temptation to pull off an Urobuchi.
Frankly killing off a character this week wouldn't have been a urobuchi,it would have just been dumb,you don't send candidates out to a real battle.
Thankfully Okada didn't go that route,that being said it could forshadow things to come.
Oh and damn it now I've got "beginner" stuck in my head....I guess that's the production's goal
About the biggest obstacle for this show to be accepted is the AKB franchise itself: right now some people cynically see it more as an overhyped cash cow than a genuine piece of entertainment. As expected, both Kotaku and Japanator panned it (at least initially) for that very reason.
For those keeping score at home you can note that we had to wait until episode 4 to get our standard Okada crossdresser
Okada really is the best fit for this show. In some weird screwed up way I'm really liking AKB0048
