Nagisa's outburst was unprofessional, but let's all remember that she's only fifteen or so.

TakaMina seems to have been thrown into the trash heap in terms of the story development. She got her moment in the spotlight during the elections, but she's been pretty much a nonentity this season so far.

In order to succeed, does Mimori need to take on the identity of someone not currently in the main group? Or will she replace one of the current main girls like, *cough*, TakaMina-san?

I, too, am suspicious about whether camera-girl has a back channel to Zodiac. Of course, it might be the chef! Or Mr. Hat, the dance instructor. The only ones I think we can rule out are the successors, Mariko/Tsubasa-san, her nameless assistants, and probably the front-line girls.

Tsubasa in that crown is really rather hilarious.

Given Kanata's experience, I don't think the fever could have come if Mimori matched up with any of the successors who are currently active. Possibly because the soul of that original member is still somehow bonded with that successor.

Since Chieri's 14 now (we learned that during the trial) Nagisa can't be more than 14, as she's about a month-and-a-half younger than Chieri. Both of them were 13 when the show started. (hurray for the glossary!)

I just happened to check out where AKB stood over on Crunchyroll, and it's pretty far down on the main listing page for a show whose most recently released episode streamed today. Shows move up and down on that page depending on the number of people who watch them. I'm guessing that most of us who watched the first season are still watching fansubs, seeing as the CR "simulcast" is a full week behind. I'd imagine the fact that they started streaming season two before season one has a lot to do with this.

Usually a show pops up the list on the day it airs then falls back down as the week progresses. Space Brothers shows this behavior every week, for instance, as does Chihayafuru season two. That show began streaming on CR last season, and its simulcast is concurrent with the program airing in Japan.

We don't really know whether Kanata had the fever or not when she was chosen as the most fit for Takamina though. So we don't know whether the fever only happens when its an available name or not.

All in all, to answer SeijiSensei, if Mimori was to be chosen as a member who is currently not available, Kanata example show us she wouldn't be able to succeed as long as that girl don't graduate from AKB0048.

I just checked it and the two instance I remember Chieri's age showing, on the trial (EP14 at 14:10) and when Chieri is announced as 9th on the pre-results (EP15 at 21:43), and in both cases it says she is 13 years old.

Hmm... I see my memory is playing tricks on me. Nevermind then.

I agree Nagisa's actions were awkward this episode. Chieri turned a desperate situation into an opportunity to make a powerful speech during her trial. Yuuko earned first place in the elections before making her declaration. And Nagisa... hijacked another performer's part only to interrupt a group performance to get her ambitions across.

I hope we get Nagisa reflecting on her actions and apologizing (at least to Mimori) next week, as that would make things easier to swallow. We might be busy with other developments though.

Ganbare, Mimori~.

I guess what Nagisa did is just stealing the moment. Whatever she did, the fans seems to like it and I guess it is okay.

Chieri as Acchan? I can't see that at all. She is too perfect to inherit Acchan's soul. From what I read in AKB49, Acchan is someone who has doubt about herself and all she got is just her smile. Nagisa is somewhat more like the younger Acchan who just started.

Neither Chieri or Nagisa is really like Acchan personality-wise, but as Uchiyamada said, what matters the most is the soul's purpose, what the soul longs for, its goal. For example, the original Yuuko wanted to beat Acchan the most. That was her main goal at least until Acchan graduated. Likewise, Hikari Kimishima always saw Acchan the 13th as her main rival. It's because Hikari's goal matched the original Yuuko's that she ended up becoming a Yuuko successor.

So it doesn't matter if Chieri and Nagisa are nothing like Acchan (well, Nagisa at least has the looks). What matters is whether their goals and dreams match original Acchan's goals and dreams.

For Cherry fans (is it just me or she looks younger in that pic?):

And well, I can see why some people say Acchan have scary eyes...

Just watched eps 19.
Does the fever the ultimate sign of someone having a succesion?
Why doesnt Kanata have it? (or do i miss the fact somewhere in the serie?)

We don't know whether it happens when a girl is chosen by the Kirara as most fit for a name or only when they will actually be succeeding a name (when the name is free).

Also, Kanata was chosen as most fit for Takamina more than one year ago, so if she had the fever it happened before the 77th girls join in.

I still doubt Kanata got the fever. Takamina has Takahashi Minami's soul at the moment, after all, and from what Tsubasa said it's the soul of the original beginning to merge into the future successor that actually causes the fever.

Just wondering, if the fever is a recurring sympthoms, then by this time, all Senbatsu member would surely know that fever is one of the sign of succession.

Then, i just realize only Tsubasa and the dancer trainer (i always forget his name), and Mii-chan talk about the fever.
Looks like other member doesnt have a clue about this fever.

We need more details to have an exact idea of how it works but so far into the series there seems to be a test for any future successor.

My bet is also that too, I just don't think we have enough information yet to ascertain one over the other.

No idea... the picture I upload wasn't sideways.

The 3rd Galaxy Cinderella is halfway, current standings:

Seems like Chieri is almost certain to get first place, and Mayuyu 2nd. Nagisa and Sonata may have a tough battle for 3rd though.

Fool! Do you want Megu to burst a blood vessel from the sheer moe of a tsundere Sae? She can barely hold it in as of now!

Seeing Mayuyu eat chocolate in a chipmunk like way would make for a heart-throbbing valentines present if you ask me. Not to mention the "eat me instead" factor.

And speaking of heart-throbbing, MIMORIIIIIIII!!!! CHIERIIIIIIII!!!!!!!

P.S: Just when I decide being supportive of Nagisa again, the thread splits opinions on her... go figure. And I stand on the "Kanata wasn't 100% decided as a successor back then" idea. As I said, the succession kiraras are trolls.

I just found this on AKB0048 twitter: http://www.excite.co.jp/News/reviewm...690338326.html

Is anyone able to translate it or at least give a summary of what it is about?

There's a lot of cool interesting stuff in there, but my eyes are way too tired right now. I'll see what I can do tomorrow, unless someone else gets to it before then.
