All I can say is, FUCK YEAH!

Now just waiting for subs. BTW, thanks to EveTaku for picking this up. Quality subs within 24 hours of airing is no small feat. Hope you guys consider more of the same for the future *hint*hint*nudge*nudge*

AKB0048 General Election sounds interesting. I'm little worried about the character development though. Most of these characters are already pretty well developed so the psychological drama might not be as interesting as in the first series. We'll see.



On another note, when Chieri called Kanata captain I was grinning like an idiot. Chieri and Kanata for next Yuuko and Takamina!!

Well, I think the development in the series works for what they're going for. The election isn't going to be about which girl is #1, but rather who takes over as the 14th generation Atsuko Maeda. It could be very interesting! (Or really stupid!) Lol.

If it's about the next Acchan they can end the series in episode 1 since it's painfully obvious it's Nagisa.

I really hope they have a little more (or a lot more) than this in store for us.

I agree, it's pretty obvious (unless they want to have some lame SHOCK plot twist for the sake of it), and they should get it over with. I'm more interested in the Sensei-Sensei mystery and how it ties with the original AKB48 members.

As long as there's a season 2, it's all good. I won't know what happens in this episode until a translated version comes out (and I have time to watch it), but there's no way at all they could have wrapped up everything and still managed a good episode. Since folks say the episode was good, that means there are still some mysteries left to uncover.

More than mysteries, I'd like the second season to bring Chieri's parents into the picture. To begin with I find it hard to believe her dad wouldn't send a direct attack on Akibastar to retrieve his daughter. I want Chieri to confront her parents like Nagisa did hers.

And yeah, the Center Nova and all that... honestly I don't really care that much about this anymore.

Chieri meet with her dad would be great..but it might be in a middle of a serious gun fight between mechs at an AKB concert.

I want to see AkiP's face :|
Oh and I want to see DES's capital/HQ/Whatever too.

Best episode and season 2 by 2013!

I am happy with everyone getting what they deserved. Nagisa reunites with her parents, Yuka meeting Mamoru again and Orine saying goddbye to her mech. Takamina finally get to retain her position.

About Center Nova, all the understudies are Center Nova. I understand why Miichan freak out when she is a Center Nova, you basically get send to I dol Heaven and meet the original members.

Lastly, a Kirara's glow produce dualium. Nowonder the idols is DGTO's enemy.

I think the dualium was already there, and that's why everyone besides Chieri and Nagisa managed to glow like a center nova.

So there is two ways to get it. One way is to strip mine planets for the resource while the other way is through song and music. Guess that is why they want entertainment banned.

If fans don't like them, they wouldn't be willing to support them :P
Beside I consider their marketing genius to actually turn an underground group no one know, with only 8 people in the audience at their first show into a money printing machine.
Beside, that management donated over 15 million USD and 30 buses for tsunami victims, and AKB girls still do visits every month to perform concerts, their recent single sales was partly donated to charity too. At least they gave back

Kinda lame to be an idol just to disappear like that tho.......
I guess it's for the better goods or w/e.

But for some reason the new trainees nullified the effect of being center...maybe this is like related to team works? lol.

Perhaps, but Kawamori decided the series shouldn't try to follow more recent "Action Idol" series' footsteps. Its better that way, the whole "Crying Trainees scene" made me thought something bad was going to happen. But this series is pretty by the numbers. Very simple and a heartfelt letter to AKB48 above all else.

On the greedy marketing thing, that was more of Anti-talk than anything. AKB's way of selling CD, is now pretty much the standard. Besides, looking from an subjective view, while you can way taht having different C/W songs in different edition is under-handed tactic to get fans buy multiple copies. It is also a fact that for the same amount of money, an AKB or 48-group singles CD gives you more value for the money than other artist's single.

For an AKB CD, you not only get the CD, but a DVD with MV on them as well as various bonus footage like behind-the-scene, comedy sketches, etc. In addition, there are tickets for handshake event, 3.5x5 member photo, votes for election and AX100 concerts. That's not counting the shop specific goodies you get. They also discounted regular edition have just the CD, thus makes it cheaper then other artist's single.

In essence, all they did was taking the Limited Edition concept that you often see in videogames and manga and applied it to music industry. It's hardly anything new, but probably helped due to it's Akihabara root. I mean, really, a lot of its current marketing direction were the result of the meetings the management had with its core fans (mostly otakus at time) during the earliest stage of AKB's existence.

As for there music, the win Japan Music Record, and runner up before that is acknowledgement enough even if I personally think the group have many other songs that were better and Fly Get or even Beginner.



I'm just happy that there is going to be a 2nd season.
