That is what I think too, especially with the addition Nagisa plot.

Like you said, they could have Nagisa's family safely rescued this episode and then end the series nest episode with the concert and "liberation', but they didn't.

Y'know, in his own way, Nagisa's dad has balls. He didn't back down from the fact that he was the father of a 0048 kenkyuusei, and he refused to contact her and get her to quit 00, and refused rescue, but intends to face the music, even though he knows it's going to end badly for him.

Also, I sincerely wish to kick Yuuka and Mamoru in the head for their whole can not spit it out, as well as Mamoru acting like a douche because he thinks that's the best thing for Yuuka, and being unwilling to tell her his true feelings. On the other hand Yuuka's also in the same boat... Still, at least he was willing to man up and pick up an AK-48, so that's something.

Still, I wonder how Nagisa's gonna get her voice back. I doubt it would involve all of the other girls and a promise, but you never know...

Yeah, probably not. In her case losing her voice (and getting it back) was integral to her character development. In Nagisa's case it's just a silly plot device to up the drama during the concert. She will probably have it back from the beginning in the next episode.

I'm guessing Nagisa will realize how much she love AKB and when she's on stage, she'll remember her dream of when she's a kid and start singing again along side Chieri or some cheesy stuffs like that :P

Or maybe GodKiP will show himself and then use his mythical and holy lyric power to restore Nagisa's voice..who know..:P
There's alot of things that need to be resolve. Takamina's graduation, Nagisa's voice, Center Nova mystery, Sensei.

The official AKB0048 guide book. Note it includes a long interview with Mayuyu. I hope we'll get some scans when it gets released. I want to know Mayuyu's take on Chieri and the series as a whole.

Long interview with JUST Mayuyu?
I feel like more people are going to be annoy with her aggressive promotion.

I hope she talk about how another seiyuu is voicing her instead of Mayuyu voicing herself lol.
The scene with Mayuyu giving Chieri advice back in ep 3, I think, was kinda a paradox moment

Let me check and run Translate (I dislike machine translation but the S48 forum is down so I'm forced to use this) on it...

Ah, shit.

Spoiler for MT sucks:


This guide is from the publishers of the entertainment magazine Friday, and if true, isn't it a bit too much "favoritism" for the publishers/management to push Mayuyu when Karen Iwata (as a protagonist, she also needs an equally-lengthy interview) and the other girls really deserve equal billing?

First time I felt disappointed. *facepalms*

Vegetables Amina?.....LOLOLOL~ XD
I love Google translate XD

Well..it's AKB related so..Mayuyu as the most popular member clearly will get more attention...as well as being a member who's known for her otaku-ness, I think promoting her would make it more appealing to anime fans? I notice Mayuyu have alot more fanarts of her on Pixiv.
And the anime has been more Chieri focused than Nagisa...........I wonder which one is the real main one here......<___<

Either way this is not new...Warota 7, hello~ Mayuyu has always been favor...more so after Manatsu no Sounds Good.

Anyway, we have to admit that having Mayuyu in the project is probably one of the show's main hooks, so it shouldn't be a surprise she gets preferential treatment. Plus she actually likes anime so her take on the series might be more relevant to anime fans.

Nevertheless, I'm sure 2ch will eventually find this and then there's going to be a shitstorm.

In my country, we call this as "epal", as if to shoehorn or butt in, to be credited for everything. Not that I'm angry at her, for the first time I'm PO'ed at the management.

Isn't Mayuyu releasing her single soon tho?
This might be more extra promotion for her.


meh...I guess I grew jaded to this stuffs after Sashi....Mayuyu and Chieri is the number one winner on that popularity poll too. Obvious she's carrying the series by herself. I think by giving her a big interview, it might draw more attention because people would be more interested in a popular girl instead of some nobodies.

It's not like this is new in AKB....ie Moshidora live action main role was based off Minegishi Minami's image or something like that but since Maeda Atsuko is more popular and from a bigger agency with more pulls, she got the main role and Miichan got another role.

^ I don't really mind either. If this is what they have to do to get more attention for the series, so be it. As long as they give us a second season...

From Sato Amina's (Yuka's VA) blog:
Quote:
I finished watching the shows I recorded whilst I was away at the Fukuoka handshake event

They were:
CDTV
AKB0048 (#12)
Megu-tan tte Mahou Tsukaeru no (#2)

I cried a lot because of the relationship between Yuka and Mamoru.

Both Yuka and I aren’t honest so I can relate strongly to her

I have a lot of stuff I have to say, stuff I shouldn’t say, stuff I want to say but I can’t

Because I like everyone a lot I overthink too much

I’m thankful that I “met” Yuka. (>_<)

The next AKB0048 is the finale.

Everyone please watch!

Well, that's the reality of business, at same time, Mayuyu wasn't in that movie when she herself was the inspiration of both the character that Miichan portrays and the bed-ridden Miyata Yuki as well.

Though, with the result of 4th election out, 0048 cast is surprisingly strong. At first I thought is was Mayuyu + Amina show but both Yagami Kumi and Hata Sawako has been make names themselves from in SKE as well and all four are known otaku and had openly expressed interests in having a VA career.

Beside there's speculation that the only reason Iwata Karen was given Nagisa's role to begin with was because she was the only trainee that made through the audition and least likely to have schedule conflict.

Mayuyu's single is slotted on 25th while No Name is 8/1. I gotta say though, lately she's been letting her hair down or sporting single ponytails more then usual and IMO, looks better than her trademark twin-tails of past 2-3 years.

Spoiler for Mayuyu::

Same here, and I still can't get the weird schedule this show is in. I mean it started mid-season , ends next week. After that is a month of Olympics programming that traditionally destroys all other shows in non-U.S. countries. Then late August is the long awaited Tokyo Dome concert for AKB and release of 27th single, follow by the annual Janken (Rock-paper-scissors) Competition for the 29th single in late Sept.

Well, in any case I'm glad Mayuyu ended up voicing Chieri. I don't think anyone else would fit her image so well. Chieri has this sort of stoic princess vibe to her, and Mayuyu's voice is a perfect match for it.
