It was.. ok.

The art style and animation are pretty good.

I'm guessing the two other girls at the start died? Too bad :(


omfg..no..the blue hair one moved away and they'll talk about her next and IDK what other girl you're talking about since only 4 of them were there and 3 was on that ship.
i mean seriously you can see all of them in the main pic on the profile page, idk why people think they died?
I guess it was due to the subs I watched or something /shrug

They did show body bags and someone at the hospital though so I assumed they died.

Did you watch Horriblesubs? cuz they were trolling with that one
The person at the hospital was the pink hair girl family. Her whole family died and she was an orphan and working at a factory at 13.

The lack of good music anime (as far as I know, there are a few of them but rare they are) I will give this anime a shot. Even tho I don't like the design of the characters. Too childish for me.

However a good history might make it worth it. So I have my hopes up.

HorribleSubs had some frown-inducing lines, but they didn't alter the story, and the script was pretty clear in saying that it was Pink's family members who had died.

Maybe Yvese watched raws.

Dat Aitakatta indeed...

Also I hope the green haired girl from the beginning is alive somewhere...




Man I guess no one else worries about it it seems. I guess you might call her hair blue but I was referencing their friend who first took them to the concert. I hope she didn't die in some tragic way. Perhaps since she knew about the idol group she was a friend from off-planet and had to move away with her parents or something

Funny. I've seen anime that started so great one feels like rating them a 10, until by the middle or even at the end they become shitty.

Well, I wonder if there was a show that started out so bad, yet in the end could redeem itself completely? Could be this one.
I play, the haters lose.

japanese fans said she moved to a different place. I think they will decide to talk about her next ep. I guess it's said so in some japanese summary.

MTE. I mean, no bias cuz I thought it would turn out shitty but honestly it's not so bad and it got alot of potential.
I think people just decided to pass it off because it look loli or it will be fanservicy with a whole female main cast.....but the show have a lot of appeal with shoujo genre lover and it seem interesting so far.

honestly, when I first heard about this anime,
I think that this is an its wrong,adaptation of the manga "AKB0049'
but,its wrong...

well, my first impression is.. like...

this anime is the combination of "the IDOLM@STER + Code geass + Eureka 7"
the animation is great, at least,,,

well, IMO
perhaps thats make they wanted to become an idol that badly, like they promise something at the time of separation....

Why would anyone have to research a show before they can watch it? Sounds silly.

what fanservice? there's not even one fanservice moment there. And for it to be shoujo ai, the girls need to hint some sexual or romantic connection...THERE'S NOTHING THERE and one of the girl actually had a boyfriend for a short time. please stop. this is shoujo probably, not shoujo ai. I'm pretty sure the target demo is the large fanbase of teen girls that AKB have, tho alot of other people. found it enjoyable too. Anime otakus hate AKB, I even read comments saying "shine" or die on the Japanese stream videos, I didn't even finish the video because otakus were saying really horrible things on their video so plz stop talking about stuffs you don't know. <__<
fine if you dislike it, but differentiate it. thx.

According to the episode 2 teasers, she in fact has stowed herself on board.

The only question now is this: What happened to Acchan since she was not present in the recruitment audition video.

Yeah, I'm not going to bother with this. I managed 10 minutes before I had to fast forward through the rest. A shame really, as I was looking forward to something with music.

And the whole "idol" business is just not appealing to me.

I felt some forced friendship/family drama stuff from this episode >.> , all of this "banning entertainment" thing... isn't it too far from reality? well the genre says sci-fi afterall xD
Anyway, it wasn't bad and I'll be waiting for mayuyu character to appear~.

Wait, so the planet is actually called 'Rankastar'? That wasn't just Horriblesubs trolling???
I thought it was like some kind of joke since this sorta resembles Macross Frontier, so they decided to name the planet after Ranka o.O

What a pile of steaming dookie. When the girls changed into shitty 3D models all of a sudden I knew I wasn't going to last the entire episode, and they looked so stupid flying around on their...idol pyramaids. Idk, I don't get it, and its really shitty qauality.

I'm all for Idols, bands like Buono! and C-cute are awesome, but this show sucks, wow...wow. ugh

I'm a big fan of AKB48, so that really is making me love this anime so far. Though, I feel like if I wasn't a fan of AKB, I would want nothing to do with this anime at all... I'd probably see it as cliche and whatnot.

But, I love AKB48, so my heart was won as soon as "Aitakatta!" started playing. Then, "Shoujotachi yo!"...! <33 And then TakaMina and Mayuyu and Acchan...! /fangirl squee
Just those alone made me think I want to keep watching!

pretty cute, especially when they were kids. I like how round their faces and eyes were. The animation quality is top notch. I think this show has most creative environment animation of the season. Will watch episode 2

I don't follow AKB or any idols and stuff but this was still pretty interesting. Those songs sounds pretty nice and this plot sounds decent. Damn this is just the first episode and it already made me feel just terrible for what was going on with these three girls. Especially Orine with her parents gone. Also that fighting + singing got me sorta pumped.

Wonder what happened with Chieri, the 4th girl from the beginning. Hopefully nothing bad happened to her and she'll reappear again later.

The songs in this concert were "Aitakatta" and "Shoujotachi yo". They can be found either on youtube or other video platforms with the help of google.
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

Aitakatta - this is like a 6 yrs old song...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SB8hk3vRCz4

Shoujotachi yo
http://vimeo.com/22877425

OP is Kibou ni Tsuite
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkK7bCqY3mU

And the song that Yuka was singing during the audition was Team B's Shonichi (the voice actress for Yuka actually came form Team B)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k99t-0QKo6w

Team B isn't really my style because their image is the cutesy group, I like Team K energetic image and Team A diva image but I do like this song.

Hmm, Team B huh? Well, it turned out to be mostly advertisement anyway...

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

They're a music group and it's an anime about music, you can't expect their music to not be play..Who else music would they put in AKB0048? Someone else when the show is about AKB48? It's like Idolmaster advertising their music in their anime too.

Anime companies advertise and squeeze money out of fans all the times, if it's not releasing an Idolmaster single every week to capitalize on their success or box set with only 4 anime eps, or figurines, towels, plushies etc. I feel like people wouldn't be complain about "advertisement" if AKB wasn't a real group..<_<

I'm not saying it's a bad thing. It actually lets it have some real AKB48 music instead of poorly-sung seiyuu theme songs like in Symphogear.

Awesome first episode, I don't like idolm@ster at all (haven't finished it) but I do like the setting of this, and I like the characters.
Now I wonder what happened with the girl with blue hair, she's missing after the flashback.
Will watch next episode in a sec.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Um.. uhh.... idols are an act of terrosim against the government?

This is something you don't see everyday. Plus idols fighting back against the government was rather funny and awkward at the same time.

I'd love to watch more but I just couldn't take this show seriously.

Pretty good.

I'm interested in the world that the main characters live in. A place where entertainment is banned, pollution is rife and it's all brown and bloom everywhere. Technology was cool to see - those bikes were badass!

I've actually never heard much of AKB songs before but they were all good fun.

During the final scene, I felt quite in the moment. Cheering Nagisa to join her friends and chase her dream. Glad it finished on a high note with her mother accepting her interests.

Not sure if its just me or not...having watched a lot of animes, I found this one to be extremely fast paced, kind of seems like the whole episode is about rushing, rushing, and rushing.... not saying it is bad but I was expecting to see more development. The whole idea of the entertainment ban just doesn't make sense at all!! The other thing is about kids confronting their parents...no good no good.

Fighting security and singing the same time = boss.

Enjoying this so far and reminds me of The Idolmaster.
