I usually avoid idol-based types of shows/movies (may they be live-action, anime, or whatever) like the plague, but I saw people talking about this so I watched it...

And, honestly? It's not bad. In SOME ways it's so bad that it's good (or so bad that it's hilarious, and thus amusing me JUST enough for me to let things slide), but overall it has potential.

It's been said by several others, but it gives me vibes of Symphogear, Macross F, and Idolmaster all rolled up into one. It's like if the bad parts of Macross F and the good parts of Symphogear had a baby, while taking what I hate about Idolmaster and doing it in a more tolerable manner (awkward CGI is still awkward, tho).

Long story short, the little girl in me likes all the purdy sparklies and hearts everywhere along with the catchy jpop music and cool space/action elements. :3

Will continue to watch this. XD

Spoiler for hearts...................:

It make sense. First one are cheaper and make it more appealing for people to buy it.
I can't wait for the PV for Kibou no Tsuite.

The first Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume of the idol science-fiction anime AKB0048 will include a director’s cut of the first episode when it ships on June 27. The first volume will also include a box for all the anime’s volumes, bonus video extras, a 16-page booklet featuring interviews with voice actresses Karen Iwata (Nagisa) and Akema Kanda (Yūko), an outer sleeve illustrated by character designer Risa Ebata, and packaging illustrated by Ebata.

The first volume will have one episode, while the remaining four monthly volumes will have three episodes each. Every volume will have a 16-page booklet and an event ticket application form. (Buyers must collect the forms all from five volumes and mail them away to get a ticket for the event.) The fifth volume will also bundle a soundtrack CD.
LOLOLOL...way to encourage sales.
What event is this tho? I doubt it will be Handshake event so probably Q&A stuffs?

This actually came into my mind while I was brainstorming an idea of sorts for fanart ocs.

Spoiler for Text incoming:


Sorry if I accidentally hijacked the topic, but AKB0048 is damn interesting. It will not have the true appeal of something say Idolmaster or LoveLive but it is still interesting to see where tehy will go.

Very interesting concepts.

The one movie that kept popping in my mind as I watched was Swing Kids, in which the Nazis went about trying to crush the youth culture circled around swing and jazz, called Swingjugend.

There was also the Edelweiss Pirates, who were most aggressive in rebelling against Hitler, but even after WWII, the Allies had a hard time with them as they weren't much of a "true" resistance movement.

Another movement that was remotely associated with the Swing Kids was the White Rose, who tried to defy the Nazi regime, and despite the deaths of its members, they became Germany's favorite heroes.

BTW, it would be appropriate to call the DES squads as Stormtroopers.

I just saw the most recent episode.

YUKIRIN actually has a line lol.

But tell me it ain't true. Did they just leave Mayuyu behind in that ship?

So Flying Get is now the name of a ship? I nearly laughed out loud when the lady said she was going to dispatch the Flying Get. This show straddles the line between incredulity, cheesiness, and suspension of disbelief.

Also... Heavy Rotation gives you super strength now? Because the word "HEAVY" is in the title?

AKB power rangers? omg.

But nonetheless, it was a fun romp. It's good how they touched on the harsh reality of AKB. The majority of people who pass an audition end up a "research student" that never actually sees the light of day. And even if you make it, you may end up turning into a porn star .

Mayuyu is on one of the transformable platforms (which also serve as light fighters), so she was able to exfiltrate with the rest of the team.

Hehe, Flying Get's gonna be the name, and it'll be stuck onto the mothership, just like Macross (the name that was chosen for Alien Starship One that was rebuilt on South Ataria Island).

The Kirara seem to be able to obtain positive energy from a full-fledged member, and thus able to perform unique functions such as spacefolding (does the Vajra's Fold Crystals ring a bell?), as well as boosting a member's physical strength.

As for the last bit, that was sad but true: mirroring Perfect Blue's Mima Kirigoe, that graduated 1st-gen member made it her unfortunate decision to turn to AV possibly due to some money problems (she shouldn't been in the troupe in the first place because she apparently lacked the pluses -- including charisma and stage presence -- and the necessary skills which would've extended her career). But those were the rare exceptions, as most graduates (as I have said earlier) moved on to other things that didn't involve anything indecent.

First thing I thought after ep1: What the heck did I just watch?

Utterly bizarre, with a weird plot where idol singers are considered terrorists and entertainment is seen as worse than murder. And worse is the way all the girls have hearts in their hair and eyes. That's rarely a good sign in my experience.

However, it's not bad, and might be able to pull it off. Only time will tell whether this becomes a great show or, as someone else put it, so bad it's good.

Think of it as Revolution X (that old arcade shooter with Aerosmith songs) or Swing Kids the Animation, but with idols.

Shock and Awe... Redefined.

Makes me think of Musashi Gundoh or Dragonaut if it's like that.

Oh dear! Yuuko is such a Pimp

This going to be more epic than Idolmaster, that's my bet

I was heavily amused by that whole scene.

If this show keeps up this brand of the patently ludicrous, I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot. I've enjoyed the first two episodes, anyway.

But am I the only one getting Kuragehime flashbacks from the little glowing jellyfish creatures?

AKB0048 02 - A Journey To the Stars(☆)

"We heard there were people on this ship going to AKB0048 auditions. Come out with your hands up."

Anime is probably the only place one could hear a sentence like that and have it make perfect sense in context. I laughed a bit, but I'm enjoying this show in an unironic way. It's a soft sci-fi that relies on the strength of its characters, and those characters are already proving to be lovable. Sonata made the strongest impression, though I'll enjoy seeing Makoto's melodramatic posturing in the future, too. Chieri and Nagisa have that kind of NanoFate tension that people (like me) will probably read too much into, but that is the nature of being a fan. Spending an episode entirely on the journey was a nice breather (mostly), though I look forward to the actual idol stuff.

The previous generations, voiced by girls I actually am familiar with, were really awesome. Those floating stage performance things/miniature ships are some of the coolest technology I've seen. And cyborg Yukari Tamura... can't say I was expecting that. I'm finding myself with a lot to say about this show, which bodes well for the future.

The third episode will be, I'm sure, very breathtaking for the newcomers: I can see them arrive at Akibastar, a well-protected yet very vibrant refuge of a city, clean and beautiful, the only citadel where music and art comes alive and free.

Spoiler for A few more things I would be expecting... based on my readings of the spin-off manga:

How many episodes will this be? Is it really going to have only 13 episodes?

They can't possibly do anything good with something that short and so many characters, I though it was going to be 2 cours.

It's split 2 cours (confirmed by some of the staff), though there's yet no indication as to when the second part will be broadcast.

Even in anime, she's still sexual harassing other girls like a boss
I can't wait for Kojiyuu pairing in the anime tbh.

I can't wait for rivalry of Chieri and Nagisa.
I think the reason why Kirara followed Chieri but didn't glow and why it glow for Nagisa but none followed her was because they need each others to be at their full "idol aura" or w/e that mean.

Second round begins.
The girls were all getting along quite well for rivals ^^
Who knew they would be saved in such a flashy & unexpected way.
It was pretty cool though.
