beside their fanbase is really diverse. They're not supported just by otakus bro. right now it's the teens and the adults who are supporting them and I doubt the majority of these adults are otakus.
Beside wtf is with people mis using the word otaku? Otakus aren't interested in 3D girls. the term of idol fans are wotas but not every fans are hardcore enough to be consider wotas. just like how not every anime nerd is hardcore enough to be consider otakus. stop misusing the term~
Bobjones said: I never liked this group, seems like they're just taking advantage of desperate lonely otakus or desperate lonely men. As a fellow otaku, I feel enraged. Such is the nature of idol groups I suppose.
That's what the main male character in the official manga AKB49: Rules Against Love had in mind initially, until him following his crush to an AKB concert changed his mind.
Read that manga first, as it's clear you have little idea how the system works.
OP and ED have been announced. Both songs will be performed by the new sub-unit NO NAME, which consists of the 9 members chosen for the lead roles: Watanabe Mayu, Nakaya Sayaka, Sato Amina, Ishida Haruka, Sato Sumire, Iwata Karen, Yagami Kumi, Sawako Hata, and Mita Mao. The opening theme is "Kibou ni Tsuite" and ending theme is "Yume wa Nandomo Umarekawaru".
I'm not impressed with the character designs. I think Idolmaster and LoveLive have better character designs than this one. I was actually expecting a somewhat realistic proportion for the characters(kinda like Amagami characters) since this show is somewhat based on real people. And what's with the story? Sci-fi+Idols? Wouldn't it be better if its set in the modern world so people can easily relate to the characters? And I was hoping they would tackle the issue about gross handshaking practices of some idol otakus during meet and greet events that the real AKB48 idols experienced.
