Worst case is probably some sort of big evil DES officer who will serve as the turning point that the DGTO/Reapers aren't satisfied with jailing idols but outright killing anyone who is trying to endorse entertainment. He will shoot Chieri's father to set a clear example of hiding sympathizers.

Spoiler for DES Commander Idea:

Chieri's father doesn't endorse entertainment. His company sells weapons to DES, so you could said that he basically "owns" DES.

Chieri's biggest enemy is ultimately her own father. And that's a very tragic thing in and of itself.

I wouldn't consider those two things to be the same at all. The military gets weapons from contractors and such, but one could hardly say they own the military.

I doubt he would approve of his daughter becoming an idol, however. I suppose the biggest question about him is how strongly he'll react when he finds out.

If Chieri father find out...or he probably know already, he might turn around and support AKB0048 since a parent can't support a side that might harm his own daughter.
But on one hand that's kinda interesting....since Chieri's father give DES the weapons that killed Kanata and Sonata's dad...

Oh wow..this anime can potentially go a dark route..... if Okada can make it go that direction.

it will end up being some Kdrama storyline tho lol XD

What I mean is that his company seems to be the main military contractor so DES is pretty much dependent on them.

In any case, the main issue concerning Chieri's character is that realizing that her family is part of all that is wrong in her world must be a pretty big blow for her. She wants to be an idol more than anyone else, and her own family is making money out of the people who want to destroy them.... that's like, pretty ugly stuff to cope with, for a little girl like her.

Well I think if she had to sneak off to do this then her father isn't the type to be easily turned. Depending on the type of guy he is might just outright disown her and act like he doesn't have a daughter.

From the OP I'm not going to be surprised at how dark this series might get. Though how dark it gets will be up to the series to decide.

She knows this from the get-go unlike Nagisa, she knows once she becomes an idol. She is committed for a long time and is preparing for the worst.

Or worse, have her daughter taken in alive so she would be sold to slavery or to be married in a loveless relationship a DES officer.

The reason of the execution is to show how heartless the DES commander would be, showing that not even the most loyal can expect to be spared. A case of collective punishment to show what happens when little girls run away to become idols. Even if the father is completely against it, they must die as well.

Also on a not serious note, from rough kanji translations: Favorite Foods of the Trainees

Nagisa: Tomatos and Mother's cooking
Orine: Tofu and Scallop
Yuka: Deep Fried Food
Suzuko: Potato Chips
Mimori: Cherries
Kanata: Celery and ???
Makoto: Lobster, Cake, Hamburgers
Chieri: Chocolate and Russian Tea Time.
Sonata: Meatballs, Spaghetti and at least 2 litres of Soy milk! (Makes her body grow nice and curvy)

She may be prepared now, but it wasn't always like this. I mean, when she was a child she was obviously unaware of what her family was doing, and she was a lovely and lively little girl, as shown in the first episode. But at some point along the way she must have realized what her family was involved with, and that must have been a pretty big blow for her. I expect her personality changed so much due to something like this.

Anyway, we need Chieri's backstoy, to see what really happened with her that made her change so much.

Chieri backstory probably will happen soon when they start working out Chieri issues.

A little late in watching the second episode.

Really liked this one. In personal preference.. Chieri, Sonata and Nagisa are the more interesting characters for now. So, Chieri grown up to be a serious person, who is slightly a tsundere? Sonata is funny, I do wonder why she failed the first test.

And lastly, Nagisa seems to be the overall good girl of the series. The only thing I didn't like about her is that her voice acting seems forced and unnatural at certain situations - but that's ok.

By the comment in episode 4, it seems she didn't pass the first test because she was under the minimum age.

10 seems about right for Sonata. That's the age I would have put her at, with the others around 13, or so. Well, Kanata and whatshername have been there for two years already, so they're probably two years older than the average for the rest of the group, but I think most of the new kids are probably around 13.
