Never seen Hakkenden and AKB0048 is somewhere between terrible, hilarious and downright amazing and I can't quite tell which.

With all of this getting licensed, I sure hope Idolm@ster gets a release soon, I'd totally jump on that. Well, there's been rumours of some of the games being localised for Europe recently, so it's not too impossible...

Hooray for AKB0048! :D I'm glad that they've got it, but they've been obtaining quite a lot of anime recently

Only Quality shows for Sentai...

Not fond of Either series. Only watching Hakkenden because most music Idol shows are terror.

It's time they get the true Idolm@ster as well, the fans here want it but few have the $1000 to import.

Good, they got both seasons of AKB0048.
