THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
THE FEELS!!!!
OMFG.....So much drama ;A;

Jedi Chieri is awesome
I feel bad for Nagisa.........her dad...is just...ugh...D:<
What a waste of time trying to rescue the guy...
Surprisingly Kawamori hasn't killed anyone yet since he got a thing for killing off characters...I thought Megu was done for but guess not.

AND THE YUKA X MAMORU THING IS SO DAMN CUTE!!!!!!!!! I was getting emotional toward the end...Oogoe as the song during the scene is pretty fitting. and robot Mayuyu is awesome~ :3

Hoping Nagisa work through her problem. And we kinda find out where Kirara come from, they're born from the spirit of idols, I think. I haven't seen the sub but Miichan said that a new Kirara was born and it look like Yuka.

btw. References.

Indeed too much emoticon in this episode.

Nagisa lose her voice during some shock stressing.
She will work the hardships in the next episode and will become stronger.

Final episode probably be great

A new Kirari reborn!!!

Need 2nd season ASAP. Great drama in this yet again, really going to miss the powerful emotion in this series. I really admire the Yuuka x Mamoru pairing, made me cry a little when he pulled that picture out. :')

Can't wait to see how they end this season in the next episode.

Def a lot of emotions in this ep. & TAKAMINA WANYS TO ANNOUNCE HER GRADUATION :( I like Kanata and all but itl be sad to see Takamina go.

The drama between Cherie and Nagisa was INTENSE!! The scene where Cherie tells Nagisa not to graduate untill she sings behind her& properly loses to her was a powerful scene :)

Hope theirs a 2nd season :D Excited fo rthe last ep :)

This show definitely needs a second season. It's very good overall. Poor Nagisa losing her voice from shock. I can't believe AKB had to retreat, that's not a good sign for the entertainment movement.

I rated episode 11 as "OK."

I guess you could say I'm not satisfied with it; so many things happened!
So many things needs to be resolved within the group, yet thinking it could all be solved in one last episode? Don't think so...

idk, i'm hoping for a 2nd season, but... if they do, i really hope i wont lose interest, since I'm not a huge shoujo and mecha fan (yet so far I've enjoyed watching this anime).

I couldn't believe it either. Lancaster's position on anti-entertainment must be pretty dire for them to retreat. DES is cracking down real hard there.

I don't want to see Takamina graduate yet. D:

A new kirara? So kirara are born out of the idols emotions or something?

Needs season 2, I really don't think they can have a satisfying conclusion in just one episode, fingers crossed we get it, and more Kanata screen time along with it.

Pretty intense episode. Jedi Chieri was awesome, I feel like resubbing SW:ToR and rolling a female JK (pun intended) now.

The concert getting cancelled is definitely a bad sign. But the song (Oogoe Diamond) was pretty strong. This is one of the songs that are special to me since I heard it LIVE in Paris (english version though).

And the scene with Mamoru and Yuka's picture made me tear up. Next week can't come fast enough.

Oh, and this anime def NEEDS a second season.

YAY Nagisa focus!

I laughed really hard at this for some reason:



Man Chieri is a bitch. "Don't graduate until AFTER you've lost to me." All when Nagisa couldn't even fucking talk. She couldn't even speak for herself at any point...

All the feels were great.

What up with the new ED? Makes me feel sad...

Building up drama is the good point of the show, but sadly I just can't igrnore how forced it is and how naive most "battle" elements are. Hell, battle mech missing from point-blank (wait, no, almost aero in fact) range? Things like this drop show much lower in my eyes than it could be.

But yeah, I hope for S2.

Also, what's with new Kirara? Was it from Yuuka's feelings, or from Takamina's promised graduation?

Ofc, Chieri didn't exactly MEAN what she said to Nagisa. It was more like "If I'm going to win, then I want it to be fair and square. Like this, it would be an empty win so GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER. And if you do, I don't expect to win in the first place, which means I DON'T WANT YOU TO GRADUATE NOW STOP MOPING!"

She just has the habit of not saying it straight out. Everyone who paid attention to her character would know that.


Also, seihoukei, welcome to the world of anime and TV series and movies. Don't expect someone wearing plot armor to be stopped by something as silly as gunfire at point-blank range. On the contrary, always expect the mooks to miss, no matter how much dakka they use.
Why? They are all honor graduates from the Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy

The new kirara look like Yuka so I'm guessing it was born from her.

And they're main characters...what do you expect ? :P

Pretty damn intense episode, ridiculous how Orine didn't get shot but it's an anime after all.

I was suprised that they cancelled the concert, I wonder what Tsubasa decides to do for future concerts because I take it the DES is becoming more aggressive.

Wait, what? DES didn't really seem to strike with more force than usual, it wasn't depicted in a good way there. But shit's going down if they actually had to retreat, all the Seaside Cherry drama for nothing.
I hope Chieri got through to Nagisa and she won't decide to quit 00. And Yuka's suffering led to a new Kirara being born (probably), that might mean she's ready to become a successor.

Um... thanks for stating the obvious, bro. That doesn't affect what I said in any way. Nagisa couldn't even speak for herself. Nobody even knew what was going through her mind. It was bitchy no matter WHAT you say. It's like telling someone who's been put in a wheelchair due to a car accident to "hurry and stop moping and get over it" so you could beat them in a race. And she didn't even give half a shit about what happened to reduce Nagisa to that state anyway. All she cared about was that it inconvenienced her in her desire to "beat" Nagisa (whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean; one-sided rivalry = trivial nonsense).

It was very painful to see Nagisa losing her voice, unable to sing, and force to be a backup dancer.

The scene where Mamoru look at the picture of Yuuka and Yuuka saying goodbye and him reaching out to her was very emotional and touching. I felt like crying.

Now I'm a Yuuka fan. That scene was great.I knew Mamoru loved Yuka, but him having her picture, I just went "Oh, hell yeah!!!". This show is great, it does not deserve the hate.

There's hate?
I don't see much, only real hate come from japanese otakus and honestly they never liked AKB so i doubt they actually watch it.....I do think the show is underrated because people are expected it to be typical "moe kira kira idol show" and didn't watch it...too bad~ :|


anyway
If Yuka can give birth to a new Kirara, doesn't that mean that others will too?
So......then......2nd season? ;)

Please let there be a 2nd season..=__='
I'm going to be seriously mad if there's not one..

Oh, Nagisa cares about their rivalry too, don't be mistaken.

But more importantly, Chieri's words succeeded in one thing, they prevented Nagisa from quitting. It doesn't matter if she can't sing in this concert, as long as she doesn't quit she'll have other opportunities and time to get over her depression.

Wordsmith said:

I agree with this except for the "I don't expect to win if you get your act together" bit. Chieri doesn't bluff. She wants Nagisa to get her act together, that's correct, but she also thinks she can to beat Nagisa. Whether she manage to do it at the end is yet to be seen, but she's not giving up anytime soon. In fact, her confrontation with DES at the beginning of the episode and her talk with Orine gave Chieri the courage to confront Nagisa and tell her that she won't give up.

Didn't you see her expression when Chieri asked Tsubasa to let her sing the song. Nagisa tried to protest but couldn't because she had no voice.

Chieri is right about Nagisa. It's not that Nagisa believes there's no competition in akb, rather she's purposely avoiding the issue because she lacks confidence. Chieri almost ended up doing the same after Nagisa was given the song. She was going to except that Nagisa might have something she doesn't and give up, but after seeing Yuuko practicing she began to realize she was running away.

In any case, thanks to Chieri Nagisa didn't quit, and now she has time to deal with things and put her act together. You at least should give Chieri credit for that.

Obviously because she was stripped of her duties without even being able to speak for herself. After all those traumatic things, she couldn't even do what she came to do in the first place. Competing with Chieri was the last thing on her mind.

Doesn't matter. She still did it in her usual Queen Bitch way--without regard to what Nagisa was going through. She only gave a shit about her one-sided rivalry.

But that's the point. You seem to think Chieri has some personal rivalry going on with Nagisa but that's not it. Competition is a natural aspect of being idols and Chieri and Nagisa are aiming for the same position so it's to be expected.

DraconisMarch said:

But it does matter, because if Chieri didn't intervene Nagisa might have quit, which would be worse for her in the long run. Chieri's doing Nagisa a favor here since she doesn't have any obligations to her. All things considering, complaining about how she did it seems stupid to me.

That Kirara stuff is creepy... but it's best not to think too much about what they are :P
still S2 would be nice to get answer to this

all the time everyone has a drama :P this time Nagisa and Yuka... while Chieri went from her emo-drama zone. Good for her.
Yet to go into the prision and just move back from there?! I hope they freed some other prisoners - but since this wasn't said.. it's weird (and it would help the resistance).

I agree that DES actions seemed like those earlier, few robots some tanks and that's all - so where is that seriousness? That suddenly they started to hit their target XD
but even said all of this - I liked this episode, had some bad sides but also nice stuff.

I think she just thought since Nagisa look so depressed and blaming herself, she might consider quitting

I agree that what Chieri said wasn't just being a bitch but subtly telling Nagisa to not leave.
Btw just finally watch the sub and I thought Mamoru was pulling a douche move by saying he only care about the idol Yuka but it seem like he was lying, trying to motivate Yuka to stay in the group and follow her dream..since the memories he thought of at the end was of when they were together in Lancaster and the pic he have was of Yuka before she joined AKB :3

That's so freaking cute~~~~

Oh God the feels ;~; it was so sad to see Nagisa's father refuse to let her help him escape. And then her losing her voice just added salt to the wounds. I was so excited to see her sing Nagisa no Cherry. Chieri was kinda mean but I think she was only being like that because she cares so much for Nagisa.

Mamoru totally needs to come clean about his feelings for Yuuka! He was kinda harsh as well.

Takamina graduating makes a lot of sense. In my eyes she totally cares for Kanata and really wants her to be a successor.

It was really sad to see the concert be cancelled, especially after that awesome performance of Oogoe Diamond. I'm so excited for the last episode, but I'm so desperate for another season.

That makes sense.

After repeating that their conversation a few times, I understand what Chieri really mean. But I still want to know what Nagisa wants to say. I hope she gets her voice back.

Its not Nagisa's day at all.

The scene when Yuuka bid farewell to Mamoru when the concert was cancelled was really emotional. I kept repeating the whole concert multiple times. That ED gave a sad feeling.

...off the top of my head..

ep 1.
- Aitakatta (single) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SB8hk3vRCz4
- Shoujotachi yo (single)- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xp9B4_-DY2w
- Shonichi (sort of/ stage song) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k99t-0QKo6w

ep 2

ep 3
- Ponytail to Shushu (single) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwXtaahxjls
- Beginner (single) http://pann.nate.com/video/218712947
there's an english sub ver that might explain the crazy MV.
http://vid48.com/watch_video.php?v=9H57KYAMR8DO

ep 4
- Lemon no toshigoro (stage) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v4ey42zV9Y
- Heavy Rotation (single) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9lC3P_odns
The official music video is on YT..but..it's kinda a culture shock so look it up yourself.....if you're confuse, look up "The Truth Behind Heavy Rotation Nihongogo" after that..that video brought in more fangirls to AKB than any other song, and the video was directed by a very respected female producer who was trying to appeal to both men and women because AKB was increasingly rising in popularity with girls..)
-Shonichi.

ep 5

-No insert

ep 6
-Manatsu no Sounds Good (single) - http://pann.nate.com/video/220212208
There's an explanation for it. It's suppose to be symbolic about the senior gen and the younger gen. http://vid48.com/watch_video.php?v=B6367447ANS6
-Anti (stage/performed by trainees) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYKo2upA2Ts

ep 7

ep 8

ep 9

ep 10
-no song insert

ep 11
- To Be Continued (stage) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTfzqd2oBIw
Start around 3:00
-Nagisa no Cherry (stage) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fjfvqu6FIZQ
-Iiwake Maybe (single) - It was mentioned but w/e http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ-Drv9tVjI

ep 12
- Oogoe Diamond (single) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F32epua9VQs

And random inserts..
Flying get the ship is actually an AKB song. http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/TcJzIiiembM/

So is the Katyusha (Everyday Kachuusha) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEVq_Bx7_KY
video is a giant parody of all their past PVs.

-------------------

I think that's it....kinda want them to insert some of the rock-ish songs AKB have like Mammoth, Blue Rose, Korogashi since they would sound great in fight scene but w/e...
They have over 400 songs so it's kinda hard to insert them all in I guess...

If some of those links don't work because Japanese videos get remove constantly, just go here. http://vid48.com/
The videos are on there, it's a stream site created by AKB fans.

They seemed to throw in a side character story with Yuuka. I thought it would focus on only Nagisa and Chieri and some of the older generation girls.

I like how Oogoe Diamond's performance was kinda aimed at Mamoru and Yuka.

And Nagisa's sad expression during the concert was cute in my opinion.

It's Akimoto Yasushi, AKB's creator and lyricist and his title is Sensei because he's the VP of Kyoto Art School too.

Tho real life AkiP isn't that...mysterious and..he like trolling members and get troll back by Mariko who like photoshopping him in wedding dresses and post it on G+ :P

I'm going to be seriously mad if there's not one..

Although I would like it, I doubt it'll happen.
This season's budget was very low and there isn't enough love for this show.


I wouldn't say the budget is low..I think it's high average and it's animation isn't that bad compare to other real low budget like Sengoku Collection

And there's love for this show from int. fans. Even if japanese Otakus are being bitches about this show just because it's related to AKB, the sales are only a few hundred below Hyouka and it's over 7000 which is consider a hit in anime fandom. Usually BD with 5000 is good enough for 2nd season.

Like Dalek said..it just depend on if they have time..upcoming August is hell for AKB...

Truly beautiful episode. Just like I thought, Mamoru really likes Yuuka and the scene with her photo was incredibly well done. But the ending was sad. :-( I feel sorry for Nagisa, she's too hard on herself. Chieri is totally getting added to my favourite characters. I really admire how she can always tell how others feel and how she knows what to say to everyone. It's just a pity how she gets misunderstood most of the time.

I wonder why Nagisa is being emo over her father refusing to be rescued when Yuuka's parents told her that DES wanted him to convince her to quit AKB0048, but he refused and decided to be locked up instead. Doesn't that show that he loves and supports her dream? Sure it put her parents in trouble, but they both support her. She should be fighting for both of them, not moping about it.

Well that's my rant on Nagisa. Her first major story since the beginning and she wastes it being the moping character. I hope she recovers the next episode because i really want to see her and Chieri sing "Nagisa no Cherry." On another not i like Yuuka's story. It's very sweet, albeit tragic at the end.

I think she feel responsible for putting him in there in the first place facing whatever punishments. She's 14..it's not like 14 yrs old have that much mental strength in the first place.

I'm still frustrated and hurt seeing Nagisa pressuring herself too much like this...

I was expecting the last PV to come out today, but still nowhere to be found. Or did they just decided not to...

They're pretty inconsistent with the preview..or maybe since it's last ep, they're not going to release one :P

I feel like one more episode isn't enough to solve everything...


I felt so bad for Nagisa in this episode... I still hope she gets to do her solo some other time (Like in a second season...).
