Wait... what? They're streaming the second season but not the first one? But that's not going to make ANY sense to anyone coming in there.

It's not the first time something like this has happened. DOG DAYS' and Nogizaka Haruka Purezza were also streamed despite CR not having their first seasons - though they did add them later. If they can draw in people who are already familiar with these series towards their site, everyone wins.

...Maybe so. But I also have a poor opinion of Crunchyroll's quality control, and their latest fiasco with cutting chunks out of Girls und Panzer has not endeared me to them. If the folks who have been translating this series will be kind enough to keep doing so, I'm going to stick with them.

That one wasn't really their fault, since it involved a complex series of external circumstances that, as a site that officially licenses things, they had to deal with in a way that fansubs never do. And their subtitle quality is generally really good - and if there's a mistake, you can report it and they'll look into fixing it. That's what the button is there for.

It doesn't really matter from my perspective whose fault it is. When I watch the episode coming through them, part of it's missing. When I watch it coming through someone else, that part of it's not missing. Simply put, no matter what the reason behind it, they can't be trusted. That is all there is to it.

I thought the winner of the General Elections and the appointment of Center Nova are different? General Elections generally just ranks the girls by popularity, with the X most popular being part of the single. Being the #1 in the GE doesn't mean you get to be Center Nova, especially in this world where Center Nova position is to be held by someone who can induce the phenomenon.

Well that's surprising. Mostly because of the AKB48 connection; I'd have thought that would introduce so much licensing red tape that CR would be unable to pick it up (as is, that might be the reason it was a week delayed).

I'm certainly curious how they'll do the terminology, and if they'll eventually pick up season 1 as a catalogue title.

Crunchyroll picked up some AKB48 documentary from 2010 as a catalog title a little while ago so I guess they had some interest. I was curious why they might have had something like that lying around the site if they didn't have the actual anime.

I wonder if they can do a good job on translating terms well. They usually need a good amount of AKB knowledge the translator for the series may not have. Also I wonder if they will trans songs on it, as there tend to be a good amount of each ep that have AKB songs

Worse, they even miss the opportunity to escalate the popularity of AKB48 in the Philippines!

What a very strange face from Chieri dad on a SS there...

sa547, that trans sounds like machine translation.

Giving it a try (someone else correct me if I trans anything wrong):
Spoiler for ep 15 pv:

Watched episode 14:

Wow, a great start. They played Shonichi! It's one of my most favorite AKB songs.
So Ayako Kuroki is the real name of the current Yuki Kashiwagi. Looks like they intend to reveal the real names of the successors in this sesond season.

Ayako, Sonata and Chieri get taken to DES. And as expected, it's a kangaroo court. Good thing Yuuko and the others managed to rescue them.

Looking forward to the next episode!


The real Mayuyu and Yukirin performing Shonichi.

Team B 3rd stage song. #01 Shonichi

Just keep getting it the same way you have been, I'd say.

Views of the girls doing weird stuff, a few shots of Chieri being pretty, and one more image of The Face of Evil. Should be interesting.

...you do realise that Cruchyroll's version of that ep, minus Katyusha, was provided to them by the Japanese production team. They didn't cut anything out, the source did.
