Now, damn, with that possibility, the story becomes all the more compelling, possibly a step ahead of its contemporaries.

Suddenly, the show is no longer just an average idol story, as Okada is giving it more substance, the spice of intrigue, and even a backbone.

While the idea about Chieri would be interesting and is a possibility, I think you guys may be exaggerating things. There isn't much evidence for it yet. Getting hopes too high for it with just what we have now may just end up in disappointment later.

We know that Acchan was able to contact them on the last episode and all, but I think the question about what exactly happened with them and where they would be right now isn't that simple, considering Tsubasa and camera-mii-chan at the end of episode 13 still are looking for that answer.

It's just an idea. Besides, I did say I'd like to be wrong, since I'd feel pretty bad for Chieri if she has to go through something like that.

At the very least, it seems pretty obvious what happened to them is a natural phenomenon involving the kirara, so Chieri's father most likely has nothing to do with that.

This forum's posting requirements leave me unable to express my disbelief with the single-word reply that is most suitable. So allow me to say it outright: I think you're completely nuts.

Maybe Papa Sono really wanna harness the power of Kirara, and Chieri is like you say, the genetically engineered idol. And the mystery disapperance of idol, it all done by Papa Sono...

Suddenly the plot thickens...
Maybe I have a hunch that Mr. Sono and Sensei-sensei are the same person... Shocker!

...i'm pretty sure that was just trolling. Or just ignorance and an inablility to look at the larger picture...

The only problem with that ep is that now, I have fanfic ideas of a split in WOTA perspectives, between those who protest and support the idols, and those who manifest their support in a slightly different manner:

Spoiler for What crack hath wrought from Goose's mind:


... apologies to sa547. That banner sig inspired me.

Edit: Also, listening to Sono, maybe it's just me, but his voice sounds a lot like Taxi Nakata.

What maririn wrote is more on a fanfic format than theory. Here is an idea of what happens:

The successors in a fierce battle against the DES that was obstructing the general elections would end up awaking the nova phenomenon disappearing together with the main DES army bringing peace to the galaxy. One month later the former kenkyusei would have succeed names of those who disappeared, and in their first live since becoming successors they would say words in memorial of the lost when they would listen to their voices. Later on that live they would also make the center nova phenomenon occur and travel to the "other side of the radiance". Tsubasa who is left there would wonder what she could do to reach Acchan.

Well, I don't think many things on this are likely to happen.

Yes, I agree with that part. With the last few episodes of season 1, I already gave up on my theory that the DES may have something to do with it.

Quick and dirty.

...or so the fanfic goes. Well, still an amusing thought, and there's no doubt in my mind that the ending theme will be playing a plot role again. Start analyzing those lyrics, folks.

I never got around to finishing this the first season of this series so I went back and marathoned it and I must say I ended up liking it. Now I kind of regret not keeping up with the show I probably missed out on so much interesting speculation.

That's what I'd do too.


Anyway,

Chieri's father is totally having that end boss vibe going for him at the end of this episode.

Uncanny resemblance. No wonder she was destined to be Mark 3.

I'm pretty sure that's what people would have said if you told them aquarion evol's ending, never underestimate the craziness of the KawamoriXOkada combo

I just find it funny that of all the election footage they show, it was when Mariko beat Acchan to the point of tears. Someone in the production crew is biased, wouldn't you say, Tsubasa-san?

Actually, if we look closely, at first it appears that Tsubasa/Mariko won, but the next brief scene (around 3 seconds) presents us with Acchan onscreen and making a speech, which possibly means that Tsubasa was second (and therefore Acchan is still designated as Center Nova).

In the real-life *48 elections, the total number of votes (the voting tickets come from single CDs purchased by fans -- but some of these fans power-vote by buying dozens of singles in bulk -- this practice is even acknowledged unofficially as acceptable -- see the AKB49 manga) are first mentioned, and then the name of the girl. There are 64 spots for which the girls could take should they get voted, as the spots divided into several subgroups and sorted according to final rank (Senbatsu -- also the top 16, Undergirls, Next Girls, and Future Girls).

But in this case, the 76th and 77th generations, and possibly including the current successors, will have to duke it out for the Center Nova position, by putting themselves through the wringer and public scrutiny of galaxy-wide TV. How well they perform (and by extension, appeal to voters) would determine their ranking and possible promotion in the near future.

-----------
Merchandise: Precious Memories [AKB0048] Starter Deck (Anime Toy) -- I wonder how does it work.

-----------
Watching Nekomonogatari, I couldn't get my mind off imagining next-gen Yukirin as Tsubasa Hanekawa (cause it's Hocchan).

It's kinda funny because that not only Mayuyu slightly resembles Yukarin (or the other way around), but her relationship with Hocchan carried over to this anime!
