Except that so far there is no attempt to reach the DVD watching audiences. To some of the Aniota, the ticket pieces are a waste of time for them since they don't like AKB48. If they want to get the Aniota crowd, it would have been an excessive fanservice series with panty shots, steam covered nudity and some ambigous white fluid on top.

Akimoto doesn't want his anime associated with the same crowd who waits for the latest LN adaptation.

River is great, that reminds me, I just saw clip from their 2010 秋祭り in Tokyo. They are outdoor and it's pouring and they performing 5 songs medley from including River and it looks great.

I try to see if I can import the DVD Box but can't find it anywhere.

I'll see if I can post the in the AKB thread tomorrow because I need to go to bed now, early day tomorrow morning.

I'll need to start catching up on the spin-off as well, it's got 4-spin-off right? I've only seen one right now.

That's not really the issue though, besides where is this Aniota crowd don't like AKB coming from?

The group's core fanbase and earliest fans are the Akibahara crowd and hardcore otakus, the question is after their booming success in past 2-3 years allows them to keep that crowd or is that crowd moving on to SKE based on the result of the 4th election.

Besides, in case you didn't know they are still the only idols around (who sings and are Japanese) that are releasing swimsuit singles every summer even though with their fame right now they don't really need to use that move anymore. (that and hand-shake events and the daily stages...)

But really, who ever said those people are fan-service chasers? That's the same group that made Idol Master or any other anime including Code Geass or Kaliedo Stars and the likes hits.

In all honesty, I have to admit that the only reason I watched the River PV initially was because I was geeking over the hardware, specifically the Rescue Wing helo the Team B girls were getting into.

Given how the thing was portrayed, I kinda got the impression of Team A and K on an exercise and getting seriously lost, with Team B providing the Rescue Wing pilots and medics to go look for them. Also I'm pretty sure that helo is more oriented towards CSAR than the other Rescue Wing birds that are painted with high visibility white and yellow... sorry.

That said, it's a really catchy song. And encouraging, which is always useful/good.

Exaggerated fanservice and even more on the bds release is a what to sell more bds, but on the sense where "this is a weak show, so we wouldn't sell much anyway, lets sell a bit more with the extra fanservice". If you pay attention to BD sales numbers through the season, the heavy fanservice ones don't tend to do that well.

Anyway, the AKB0048 BDs also have their marketing appeals besides that ticket. There will be some extra 4 mins of so for the episode, which I would guess will likely be longer concert scenes. The first BD has an really low price even for just one episode, and comes with the box for you to put all the volumes, being an incentive for people to buy the rest.

Chieri was too cute this episode. She got little screen time this time around, but what little she had, it highlighted how skilled and cute she is!

Spoiler for ep8:


Anyway, great episode all around. Next one will have the concert I take it. Looking forward to it.

2D lovers who don't like 3D like AKB? :|

anyway AKB isn't the only idol groups that do summer and fun on the beach in bikinis, it seem like the AVEX idol group SUPER☆GiRLS is doing that now as well.


Spoiler for ep 8:


oh and song inserts are all old songs from past ep..
The song 76th trainee was singing was Oogoe Diamond

Spoiler for song:

Now that she has personally sorted out her personal devils with her worst fears she can rest somewhat easy for now.

But it's not like Chieri to "rest easy". She never takes things for granted so you can expect she's going to keep working as hard as she always has, if not even harder.
