Oh thx for the explaination

And I'm not surprise they brought up Seibu Dome when talking about AKB's battle..

Spoiler for seibu:


Because there wasn't proper AC and the summer heat was horrendous, most of the girls were in seriously bad states. Acchan had heat stroke, hyperventilated, was carried out on stretchers, and even need oxygen tank so she can breath but she even insisted on coming back to finish Flying Get performance. Most of the girls dropped behind the scene...
That's not even considering the 10 or something girls that went to the hospital for overwork because they refuse to rest, for fear of dropping in popularity...

So that's why Okada was casted...well she is an AKB fan herself so she would know how to present the girls to evoke empathy from watchers.

The point about music probably explain why there's alot of music related anime show lately lol.

So is this a hint that Chieri is going to end up channeling Takamina?

idk if it have to do with the pay grade.... since being the underdog is their thing so the management is not really that concern about high standard.
I think Kotaku did a feature on this before. Brian Ashcraft is their Japanese correspondent who actually does some good research. I can't find the article any more for some reason.

He claims that Kashiwagi yuki was making somewhere in the range of 100,000 - 200,000 USD a year as salary for being an idol. If you compare it to any solo act or even acts overseas, this is actually kind of pitiful .

To put it into some sort of context, each member of Arashi earns something like 4 million USD a year as just their salary.

But I guess that's not really a fair comparison. Anything that comes of Johnny's is just ridiculous.

Also, maybe it's just me, but isn't 500,000 USD a really REALLY cheap royalty for what is supposedly one of the most famous acts in Japan?

DAMNIT DAMNIT... I wish EvaTaku didn't have to sub sooo long (actually it's just around 6 to 7 hours) for this....

I swear... Ep 3 syndrome has been rampaging animes like crazy.....

Actually they're top 10 even with making 500k. And since they have alot of CMs, it does add up. Last year, top 5 of highest amount of CM contracts are all AKB members with the highest is Yuko at 19 CMs. Their rate increased for this year too so they're earning more than before.

OMFG THIS EP HAS A LOT OF ACTION!!!
But what's best....THEY PLAYED BEGINNER DURING THE FIGHT SCENE!!! <3




Why is the queen MIA?!!! D:
Oh and Kanata and Mimori is apparently the 75th(?) gen KKS so they joined AKB already, meaning we'll probably meet them at Akibastar later
Shinoda Mariko have a different name in this anime, she's Tsubasa..IDK why...
but her role as the producer obviously is because she's consider the mother of AKB members so the task of taking care of the young one fall on her.

With this episode I'm beginning to understand why kirara followed Chieri but didn't shine. It's not that she doesn't have what it takes to make it shine. In fact, she probably has more AKB spirit than anyone else. It's just that she doesn't know to express that.... but that's starting to change in this episode.

Needless to say, this was a good episode, and Chieri is already my favorite character.

Is anyone else getting these huge Minmay vibes from Acchan illustrations?

Don't remind me!! :O Now my imagination is doing this terrible thing. Can't wait to see the ep, hoping that nothing like that went down.


Btw, can I just add that the whole "Unfinished product" concept is what makes these girls so attractive as entertainers? It's quite boring to watch our western finished product entertainers and singers at times, because all they are is an unreachable goal. The whole "anyone can make it if they work their butts off" concept is quite inspiring, which is obviously what they were going for. I wonder if a similar concept over here would inspire more people to go after what they want to be instead of accepting who they are right now because society says so. I live in a society that's really restricted in that regard (UK), so I wonder..
That said, Morning Musume actually does this to a much greater extend than AKB, who does take people with some background, whereas the former purposefully takes girls who have literally zero experience like Suzuki Kanon.
I get the impression that most AKB members have some experience or at least know what they want to do in the future/ what they want to get from this and are thus a bit more focussed than a pure "idol made from scratch" concept.
Which is good, since they're actually in this to build a future for themselves.

Well Acchan is seemingly becoming that, a mysterious idol who has disappeared for some reason...

And don't worry, laws of shoujo still in effect here. Just watch for anything with Aoi Yuuki and we are fine
