You know there's a difference between suggesting it might happen based on the staff's track record and wishing for it to happen

ahaha I knew it Mimori >>> Mariko
also it seems Kanata did have the fever of succession earlier, oh well wonder how they will resolve that since current Takamina is still around. Maybe it will tie in to what Tsubasa said " though Shinoda Mariko the 8th has appeared, I'm the same as always..."

is it just me LOLling when S4 said Mimori...Mariko...Sadistic... so funny not sure if its in a good or bad way though.

"the reason she was given the name Shinoda Mariko the 8th..." wooh foreshadowing, i guess it's to pave the way for the return of Acchan and center-nova, like bringing in all the major players/names of AKB.
so if Chieri or Nagisa becomes Acchan who will the other one be?

looks like Miichan really is the spy, wonder what her reason is....enough to betray AKB0048 like that.

I know how you feel, that heart talk between Takamina & Kanata was really hard & painful. But unfortunately like some others I also had that foreboding feeling that someone on the cast might die. Oh well it might not be anything , it's Kawamori after all.

Guys, when sub is out for an episode, then we can already stop using the spoiler tags.

Anyway, Akibastar is an underground city because it's surface was destroyed after many DGTO attacks, so it's not like they never had to face an attack before. They may have good defense mechanisms, and not be so easily beaten just because the enemy was able to reach there.

Back from a fan meetup. Scored Karen's pic for about the equivalent of 4 US dollars, but won an genuine Ue Kara Mariko single CD in an impromptu raffle.

What a coincidence.

Naw, it was a local fan swap meet. That is, trading/buying/selling merch and photos between wota. The chances of me meeting Iwata in person will be very, very remote. Unless AKS (the management) decrees that they should perform in Jessica Sanchez/K-pop-obsessed Philippines, and that's once in a blue moon.

Agreed... and what's an AKS anyway?

It's a shame that the Philippines are not hooked on AKB48 fever, just like Japan not being hooked on PSY's Gangnam Style!

Well, blame K-POP.

Anyway, watched the ep. Woah, is it just me, or Mariko!Mimori really DID change? I mean, like....possibly "sadistic" sort of way?

Wait, from Takamina's part of the "Successors talking about their succession", does it means Acchan 13th given name also was Hikari?

I thought the juxtaposition of the "sadistic" moniker was connected to Mimori/Mariko bringing Kanata out on stage. Her very public challenge could also be seen as an act of sadism. There was a certain "I'm a successor, and you're not" feeling to that conversation.

So will the current TakaMina die in the upcoming attack and create the opening needed for Kanata to succeed? For the ultimate effect, TakaMina will end up saving Kanata's life in the process, and many tears will flow.

AKB0048 20 - Freaky-Deaky Ritual Thing

Again, the combination of a sci-fi-ish world setting with the more traditional Japanese mysticism (and idols) is making for a combination that is at times very mesmerizing. Across the two seasons, succession has always seemed like this unknowable, seemingly unobtainable thing, despite evidence of it being there. Now that it actually happens... it ended up feeling even more otherworldly than I had guessed. I'm not going to stop calling Mimori Mimori even if she is Mariko, though that haircut is pretty jarring. Like with the election episode, lots of high-running emotions here. The back half's been doing a great job following up from the first half, and this week is no exception. But the fight coming to Akibastar... we're gonna need a lot of those Machine Itasshars.

Huh. According to the in-universe fan poll around 18:30, even the 0048 fans thought Mimori was going to succeed Kasai Tomomi.

I'm not sure I like the implications of what happened this episode; that Akimoto is calling the shots and telling Kawamori to avoid giving free publicity to graduated members. Worse still, as in the case of Minegishi Minami, to run disgraced members further in the dirt even in animated form.

Hmmm. :/

Chieri is voiced by the real life Mayuyu, so they can't kill her. That's the strongest plot armor a character can have in this anime. You may not believe it, but I think they would kill Nagisa instead of Chieri if they had to kill one of them, even though she's the protagonist. Such is the strength of Chieri's plot armor.

As for Mayuyu mk3, she could die, but she probably won't since she's the most popular character in the all the official polls.


Really guys, you should be worry about Yuuko. She has tons of death flags. And Takamina, of course.

There is no way in hell that this isn't just an unfortunate coincidence, the delay between the events and the airing of the episode is too short for it to more than that.

According to a character art sheet (I dunno what's it's really called) that's going around it's been decided since probably the beginning of production for this season that she would become Mariko, so I don't think it has anything to do with any of the recent things involving Kasai or her graduation since it wasn't announced until a bit after the date listed on this image:



So also with anything else I wouldn't go assuming that anything is being messed with by Akimoto. Animation takes a while to get done and these scenes we're seeing now were probably produced a month or more ago, well before Minegishi's scandal.

All in all it seems like they were baiting people into assuming one thing on purpose, and with that in mind I'm just going to give up on any of my thoughts for this series because now everything that seemed obvious just seems -too- obvious and is probably going to turn out the complete opposite (or so I fear anyway).

^ well as i've said it is Kawamori ....

BTW I do like this Mimori as Mariko 8th look, she seems to have more personality, and ....pizass? Anyway before I always had trouble distinguishing Mimori & Orine especially on stage, their looks and aura seems to overlap a bit, but this version stands out more. so all is well for me.
