Synopsis

In the year since the 77th generation understudies joined AKB0048, the Deep Galactic Trade Organization [DGTO] and DES have stepped up their attacks on entertainment. In response, AKB0048 brings back the general elections and the center nova position. The understudies are now thrusted into a new competition directly against the successors. But as AKB0048 brings back policies not seen since Acchan's disappearance, a new more powerful enemy is quietly moving behind the scenes.

What would you do to turn your dreams into reality?

It is our names which we cherish the most. They are titles; testaments to who we are and what we have accomplished. Would you be willing to sacrifice your name, along with your home, lover, or family in order to achieve your dreams? AKB0048 is a story of growth. A tale of naive youth struggling to fulfill their ambitions and spread happiness in a dystopian universe weighted under a ban on entertainment. Directed by Kawamori Shoji (Aquarion EVOL, Macross), AKB0048 proves that even an anime about space idols can be enriching and enjoyable.

The story also takes some really bizarre read more

While watching this, I quite enjoyed watched this (second) season and the previous season before this. This anime has exceeded my expectations, as I had believed that this anime would only be 'alright' 'average' 'something to kill time with. ' Being an anime based upon the idol genre or should I more accurately state that an anime based upon the actual idol group AKB48; music was definitely one of the vital aspects of this anime. Through that utilization of music in the opening, ending songs and insert songs during the anime; the moods of each scenario could be captured well. This was not an read more
