Animesuki polls are well policed with rules, so almost no campaigning for votes occurs in them. It may not be official, but it will determine which AKB anime character is popular here in Animesuki.

Results would probably be similar to the one I've seen sometime ago, Chieri getting higher than the others (just my speculation).

If we don't get a proper season 2, I'll be dissapointed and seriously shocked, because this episode left the stage ready for a direct continuation, even with some new questions too.

About the episode itself, everything went way better than expected, though that's not too hard considering I was expecting a bunch of drama, goodbyes and feels back in akibastar. Honestly, I thought the whole concert had been totally ditched so seeing it actually happen was pure joy, and you can be sure I went HELL YEAH when they did it in the middle of the detention center. There were quite a few out of nowhere things (don't give things away so easily, Chieri), but nothing notoriously dumb (Yes, I expected worse than Acchan saving the day from beyond), and I'm sure not complaining about having Takamina around a little longer.

Anyway, some quick highlights
- Orine's old friends being there was the sweetest moment, never thought I'd end up liking a soft spoken pink haired girl so much.
- Butt kicking moment of the episode: Yuuko slicing that mech like nobody's business. Of course, Mayuyu deserves props too. Hell, even Mamoru got a cool moment.
- Nagisa's dad is a great example of a strict but understanding figure. Did not see it coming.
- Mimori not getting enough attention? Give her a Kirara! I wonder if it's full of pheromones too.
- Takamina's bow shaped kirara is adorable.
- From the moment Nagisa and Chieri flew together to finish up kibou no tsuite till the music stopped it was all fist raising glory. Anyone watching that should've at least tried to sing along (or maybe it's just me...?)

Really, really hoping we get a proper second season and not another crappy anime movie. For one reason or another, this series is something else.

It can't be helped. I wonder if Chieri will get the same attention in the animated one though.

Every time I've watched the episode thus far, at that moment I find myself singing along.

I was not thrilled with the concept of this series at first but grew to like it, also they didn't focus too much on combat which helped. I am glad I stuck around, this was an enjoyable series and I cant wait for a season two of it. Is it wrong that I like the No Name songs better than the AKB songs?

They're all written by the same man: Yasushi Akimoto.

So moved by the final episode that I came up with this:

Depend on what AKB songs you heard. Beginner, River, Kaze as fuiteiru, Sakura no shiori, Sakura no ki ni narou are good even if you're not into idols, or Give me five big band sound and not as sugar overdose. Keibetsu is very un-idol like because it's about suicide because of bullying or Mokugekisha which is about witnesses not stopping crimes. There's rockish songs like Korogaru ishi ni nare, Blue Rose, Mammoth, ALIVE (also the prison break PV was super cool) or the sword swinging Itoshisa no Accel, the totally emo I'm crying and flawless Mushi no ballad which is about live on even if you're reduce to a bug, and Nakeru Bashou, Kurumi to Dialogue
There's over 400 songs and from what I seen, people who don't like AKB mainstream releases tend to like stage/team songs more.
But yeah...Kibou ni Tsuite >>>>>> Akb boring new single, Gingham Checks, that do not do justice to queen Yuko....

I'm actually surpirsed by this series - when I heard of the premise, I was highly skeptical and wasn't sure it wpuld be my cuppa tea, but it's grown on me and I like hiw this season ends.

Also, I'm amused by the BGM as Miichan sees the light of the Kirara - it's an instrumental remix of Korogaru Isshi ni Nare, Team K's song. Also liked the soft instrumental Aitakatta when Nagisa reubited with her parents, and her dad accepted her chosen path.

All in all, it's an enjoyable series, one that told its story through the lives of its characters. Definetely gonna rewatch from the beginning.

Also, Season 2 is practically all but confirmed with mentions of Acchan the 14th.

Also, Mayuyu Mk3 pulling out a belt of grenades outta her ass is something I find amusing, and reminds me of Nanoha spamming cartridges. ;p

Apparently she goes into concerts with the hem of her skirt lined with those stasis-field rockets. It's ridiculous and should be cheesy, yet somehow they made it awesome.

I like that pairing too. But currently unable to find any pics.
Feel a little bad for Mamoru's current girlfriend though, because it's tough to compete with an idol.

Finally back after a 2 week without internet...

Great show all in all. Sad we need at least half a yeah for the next season.

Even Takamina who was the most likely one to graduate from all that happened was able to "take her place back" as the most fitting Takamina soul. I think we aren't seeing any of the 8 graduating after that. I still think the 9 main research students will all get to succeed new names. Considering the concert they were able to give on final episode, I wouldn't be surprised if the next season starts with they all becoming successors (which can be connected with the general election part, with all girls on the same ground now, the next rival theme would be the elections).

My mostly random guess: Nagisa as Acchan, Chieri as Mii-chan, Kanata as Yui-han

For anyone confused, that's a joke on Makoto's nickname. Sonata came up with "Butsuzou" from "butsu-butsu" (to grumble) + "zou" (a nickname ending), but "butsuzou" also means "Buddha statue".

Ah, thank you for the clarification.
