Sigh. Get a grip on your tongue, Chieri. If you keep hurting your friends, things aren't going to go well for you.

Well, we don't know the details yet so let's wait and see. I wonder how that beach scene fits in all this though.


Thanks for the TL, Raiga!

Chieri really can't help herself. Otherwise its getting to the point where you almost think that she wants everyone in the group to dislike her.

But yeah best to wait and see how the next episode goes.

We need an antagonist in this show that will create friction and drama in the group and I guess that's going to be Chieri...:|

Maybe it's going to be similar to Kanata where her harsh word helped her release her pent up feeling.

I'm assuming the beach scene have to be them relaxing and taking a break + it is summer over in Japan + AKB just released their summer song....expecting already Ponytail/Kachuusha insert songs, maybe Manatsu to help pimp out their new record breaking 1.6 million in first week single.

Considering what Chieri said in the PV, whatever she told Orine was probably meant to help. But you know, this is Chieri we're talking about, she wants to help, but ends up making everyone cry.

But yeah, it seems her main purpose in the story for now is to introduce conflict and tension. I do hope Okada has more in store for her though, since her bitchy act is getting old fast.

Regarding Chieri I guess it's just a mix of not really knowing what to say plus the fact that she take AKB0048 and becoming a successor as something very serious, and gets annoying when she sees the other girls taking it in a way she thinks it's lightly.

Looking back at episode 1, on the concert on Lancastar 4 years ago, there is a girl that looks a lot like the current Sae, and even pilots a mecha like her, and who I thought it was her, but actually have different hair and eyes color. If she happens to be the previous Sae then at least one of the 8 famous member the story shows more of wasn't there since 4 years ago.

I kinda like Chieri bitch act..:P
All the other girls are too nice.
But I think it's more like Chieri is pretty awkward with handling other people emotions too.

Glossary is also updated now:

http://akb0048.jp/glossary/

The DGTO fleets rely on Dualium to travel across the galaxy and maintain their hold on the galaxy. Planets like Rankastar maintain their neverending need for resources.

Thanks a lot once more for the trans. If you're willing and have the time, could you translate or take a look to see if there is any interesting info on the characters summaries on the main site? Like that bit about Takamina being AKB0048's captain so far don't seem to be anywhere else.

There is a lot of interesting new info on this new batch. So the idol aura is really related with souls. I wonder if it will be related with how the succession system works... will their souls "connect" with the original members souls XD?

Yeah, no... I'm not sure it means "soul" in the literal sense.

Anyway, this line caught my attention:

Quote:
Kirara are attracted to the radiance of human souls, and glow when that radiance flares.
This seems to suggest that all human souls possess this radiance. If so, then I suppose an idol would be a person whose soul can glow even more than the average...

Needless to say I still think this "soul" thing is some sort of symbolism.

"AKB0048 are the idols who sing their love."

That's what Mimori said, right? Maybe that's what having the "soul of an idol" means: being able to sing your love, as corny as that sounds.

That confirms what I was thinking about (along the lines of Macross Frontier, about idols and fold manipulation) when I first watched the Kirara interact with the veterans, and the critters do get excited and light up.

Of course the Dualium also proves my theory right about DGTO, why bother with idols when you can do the same by working people to death in Dualium mines? After they are the Deep Galaxy Trade Organization and profit comes before love and music.

Sure thing. Character profiles are in progress, but it'll take a while before I finish. I'll update every few characters I get done.

EDIT: And two hours later, that's all the character profiles. Slightly exhausting, but they're done.

DGTO = Capitalism pig? Sound like someone who need to be kicked on stage.

The mysterious graduation of the Center Nova is indeed related to the kirara. They probably go transported somewhere else by kirara at the peak of the concert.

The statements about the kirara flocking to the centers and glowing more brightly around them than ever, and that when their glow reachers its peak they "unlock the power to transcend space and time" certainly seems to support the theory I tossed out. If that is what's happening, the conventions of storytelling make it somewhat more likely that the centers are still alive (or, at least, that they were still alive when their journey via kirara ended). It would be unnecessarily tragic and anticlimactic for folks to discover "yeah, they all just got teleported randomly... most of them ended up in deep space and died in a few seconds. Kinda sucks." after all. They likely ended up somewhere (or somewhen) specific.

It's still just a theory at this point, though. It seems to fit the facts, but we can't prove it yet.

Yep, the DGTO are pretty much a combination of the Spacing guild and Big Brother.
