You're missing my point. If the episodes I get from them aren't complete, no matter the reason, then I'm not going to watch episodes from them. From the perspective of a viewer, I can't trust their releases. It doesn't matter why. It doesn't matter whose fault it is. All that matters is that what they're putting out is missing content. I can see that content by watching someone else's releases. CR's therefore hold no attraction.

However, extrapolating Girls und Panzer's exceptional issues with foreign, unlicense-able historical music to the rest of Crunchyroll's lineup is completely ridiculous. Insisting that this kind of incident makes Crunchyroll somehow "untrustworthy" is simply wilfull ignorance. There are plenty of series for which Crunchyroll is a perfectly legitimate "best option" for subtitles.

The better arguments for whether its worth switching over for this series are 1. whether Crunchyroll will bother providing subtitles for AKB0048's numerous insert songs and 2. subtitling speed. Though there are a number of series for which Crunchy's subs come out nearly instantaneously (a mere 30 minutes after the first Japanese airing), Crunchyroll disappointed me last season by having most of the series I was interested in come out several days late. If the present group still manages to beat out Crunchy with its current quality, I will likely not switch over.

sa547, those comments that makes us look even more forward to the next ep...

Was able to check only the new opening so far. Liked it, although to give it a better judgment, will need to check the HD version.

Something on the OP that imo is very interesting, at the very end they show the 9 kenkyusei, the 8 current successors we know, plus 10 more girls. They don't seems to be the 76th girls, nor a graduated we know. My guess they're all the other current successors we tend to see only here and there on the background. Which may mean the current total of successors AKB0048 have would be 18. I wonder what are their names and numbers.

Watched the episode now...
Spoiler for Ep 15 / S2 Ep 2:

So they are gonna have more appearance time? I thought they were just random characters that suddenly popped up for this one occasion.

Unlikely. The other understudies need to do a lot more work to catch up to Chieri in terms of popularity. They will do so at some point, specially Nagisa, but right now they're still far behind.

Like Kazu-kun said, no other Kenkyusei should enter the top at this point. The remaining 8 are likely the 8 successors the story focus on. Nagisa need a boom of some kind to enter the run for senbatsu, and my guess she may get it with succession. If she does indeed become the next Acchan, that may be a big step for her to get there. Chieri is another one I think my succeed before the results of the elections putting her almost on the top. Btw the final 10 girls may be those 8 plus Nagisa and Chieri.

Interesting that from the "top 30 AKB Girls" rank I made based on the mean results their average result in the 4 general elections, only 9 names are left after I marked those 10 names as full (I'm also not count9ing girls that graduated long ago or are from sister group, not even temporary on AKB). The 9 remaining names are:
Maeda Atsuko, Shinoda Mariko, Kasai Tomomi, Matsui Jurina, Sashihara Rino, Minegishi Minami, Satou Amina, Watanabe Miyuki, Miyazaki Miho.
The more experienced AKB fans can see the 77th and 75th girls fill up those spots?

It appears that this episode could be one part of a small arc focused on the general elections.

Spoiler for on a particular scene:

So those are the names available, right? Let me give it a try:

Chieri = Matsui Jurina

Nagisa = Maeda Atsuko

Mimori = Kasai Tomomi

Suzuko = Shinoda Mariko

Makoto = Sashihara Rino

Yuka = Satou Amina ()

Orine = Minegishi Minami (This one doesn't fit, to be honest)


I'm not familiarized with the other girls so that's it from my part.

Hmm, not really sure I like where it's going right now. I predict another angst/drama period for Nagisa, something I hoped they'd avoid after the first season.

That may be more than those names available, and I'm not sure whether all of those "exists" in AKB0048 universe. From them, the ones we heard in the anime so far, so it means they exist, are Sasshi, Tomo-mi, Mariko, Acchan, Mii-chan. I listed those 9 because I think the main girls are succeeding more popular members, and those seems to be the ones left (but them I don't know nowhere as much as the actual AKB48 fans, so my guess may be wrong).

Also we had a whole episode about Orine wanting to become Sasshi, and trying to improve herself to be able to. So even if she doesn't fit the position much now she will likely become that name.

Yuuka then, more than once said she was set in becoming Mariko. I would also expect her to be able to fulfill that ambition. Just because previous Mariko became a manager, doesn't means Linda that is aiming for staff would need to become Mariko for later getting that role.

Well, ultimately the kirara decides based on the soul. Makoto is a too similar to Sasshi not to happen. As for Linda, her personality fits Mariko better than Yuka imo but it's debatable.

I'm so glad I watched some of the subbed episodes of AKBingo between seasons so I could understand the show they were doing. I just wish they'd done the game where the girls have to answer questions about each other and get a cream pie in the face if they're wrong -- just imagine the hilarity of Sonata being the one asking and no one being able to guess her insane answers.

Given how Kanata's relationship with Takamina developed last season, I think she's the most likely candidate for Minegishi. Seeing the two of them kicking ass side by side would be awesome.
