  • Perfect from beginning to end. Would rewatch.
    This anime as a whole is just, perfect. Each character is unique and many of the songs (especially Beginner) leave you with goosebumps with how perfectly it matches the atmosphere of a scene. The little kirara are adorable, each character that gains major screen time goes through some sort of character development one way or the other, and just everything in this anime screams cute but badass at ...

  • Creative and Inspiring!
    This anime has a bit of everything, but it is definitely more of a 'girly' anime I think. (Although kudos to all the guys out there that like it!)
    I really really enjoyed this show. There are funny moments, exciting moments where you are just cheering the characters on, and very emotional moments. There is more noticeable character growth that is in this anime, than I have seen in most others. I ...

  • amazing soundtrack and feels
    Great soundtrack the songs will stay in your head for weeks after you finish it. and there are so many feels with these girls as they change and grow. (also gotta give it points for a unique setting) overall this anime is a must watch for anyone that likes music anime or just a good story about cute girls growing thru hard experiences

  • This is my all time favorite anime!
    Okay, I have always been a fan of AKB48 but when my friend showed me the first episode of this series I was hooked. This is first show in general that I was so moved by that every episode made we cry for joy or for sadness. I love this show forever and always <3

  • Went into this blind with a random scroll on alphabetical and was not disappointed!
    I picked this completely at random and found a gem. i was at first thinking " great a cutesy series with idols" and then the tone of an oppressed people hits you. so i start thinking "ok its darker than i thought it would be maybe it won't be all happy rainbows." next thing i know i'm enjoying the music and getting into the songs. and i thinking "what the hell!?! i'm a metal head! i don't enjoy ...

    Great Mix of Music/Action, Overall a great show.
    I enjoyed this anime more than I taught I would, I can't believe this isn't more popular. There is a good mix of action, adventure, singing, dancing, drama, etc. I would definitely recommend this show and I hope there will be more episodes in the future as I am definitely still interested in this show. Also don't forget to skip out on the first season, it makes the 2nd season all that much better( ...

    AKB0048 is a good anime. The Music is very catchy and will get stuck in your head and you will love it. the Characters are very developed in the first season and in the second season is just gets better and better with a very nice ending.

  • It's based on a real group but AKB0048 stands well on its own.
    I suspect a lot of people are avoiding this show because they think it's just AKB48 animated. They couldn't be more wrong if that's so. While most of the songs, dance moves and idol culture come directly from the popular J-Pop group, the story is totally original.

    There's a lot more as this show combines elements from sci-fi and a little political intrigue(entertainment bans aren't that ...

  • A MUST WATCH! BEST ANIME EVER!
    I've seen many magical girl and idol animes...heck i've seen alot of animes in general and this is by far my FAVOURITE. I dearly hope theres a third season. It makes you laugh, smile and cry and inspires you. Truely a work of art. Not to mention you get to listen to amazing AKB48 songs. woot!

    Average good show to pick up in passing
    I started watching this show only a month ago when CR finally started to release season 1, its cute and most of the characters are likable. I'm not a AKB fan normally, not like I hate them or like them they are just there to me so I didn't go into this with a fan girl mentality.
    Its not "deep" by any means and I wouldn't call it a work of art but it isn't a bad way to spend 20-30minutes. I ...
