I just hope they'll make better animation this time. Saterlight has a lot of good plot ideas and directors but they cut down expenses for potentially popular shows too much.

I'm crossing my fingers, hoping that Kawamori and Okada have flushed the crazy out of their systems by then so the sequel won't turn into an enraging clusterfuck like Aquarion EVOL take a second half nosedive.

Animation kinda looks like it's worse though.

You kid. IDOLM@STER is the original. Everything else just tries to get to its level. AKB0048 was fortunate to have Okada Mari on its writing staff because she writes some of the most compelling material. IDOLM@STER, on the other hand, has a lot more in terms of being able to develop attachment to the characters.
TL Notes: Some information are worth more than a simple note from the translator.

For me, idolm@ster is better. It was more fun to watch, whereas this show had a plot with mechs and stuff. They honestly felt like distractions.

Rather than just the girls, you had plots between groups, mechs, idols fighting and shooting guns, etc. It just felt like they tried to put too many different genres into the show. I just couldn't enjoy it that much since all I wanted was idols performing, and even that was decent at best since most of the group performances was done in CG which made it awkward.

It's not like this and Idolmaster are terribly similar. The comparison doesn't make a lot of sense. AKB is a sci-fi anime, while Idolmaster is a (sort of) realistic idol-as-career show.

That could be due to the fact that Idolm@ster had 25 episodes while AKB0048 only had 13.

Isn't AKB0048 actually more realistic in terms of dealing with idol problems and having hater appearances?

iDOLM@STER is just plain amazing, whereas AKB0048 was just good.

What I mean is that one has future space idols fighting against evil baddies and whatnot, while the other is about rather normal earthbound idols scheduling gigs and putting on shows. They just both being "about idols" rather oversimplifies the comparison.

In any event, AKB didn't really work for me, even if the CG dancing hadn't killed it.

YES !! AKB and ANIME !! YES !!

But I want to know if Kuumin will still voice Sonata as she announced her decision to graduate from SKE48, a sister group of AKB48, two weeks ago. I would like her to keep the role. It is entirely possible that her actual graduation date may not come soon -- she is a very popular member in SKE48 so I can expect to see a bunch of activities organized for her eventual graduation so she may stay with the group for a while yet.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

The iDOLM@STER is better overall but those anime are quite different, AKB0048 is much more action packed, there's a little more drama too. When both anime have their peak they're on the same level but I find daily life in iM@S more enjoyable.
AKB0048 is still around top5 of 2012 for me. Top10 for sure (out of ~70).

It seems you didn't read anything about the show beforehand. Mood was set right from the beginning as well. Yeah, CG is bothersome and certainly can't compare to iM@S dance sequences which obviously look better and what's more, are more fluent. Difference in budget, skill of staff or allowed production time, I guess. I still loved the concerts, CG isn't painful to watch at all unlike in stuff like Berserk.

@symbv, seeing how she hasn't announced her graduation date yet, I wouldn't worry too much, she should still voice Sonati.

I greatly enjoyed the series since it perfectly blended so many different genres together that I still don't know whether this anime is a shojo or a shounen.

PV is out:


1. The animation seems to be as good or even better than season 1. It seems as funny too.

2. Great that they used the ED of final episode, "Niji no Ressha", as the music in the background.

3. Super-happy that Kumin is still voicing Sonata, despite her graduation announcement!
