VIDEO: Battle Between Idols and Fascism Returns in "AKB0048 next stage" Preview

Sadly, no lightsaber microphones show up in promo

Love idol music juggernaut AKB48 or hate them, you have to respect the complete craziness of Macross co-creator Shoji Kawamori and prolific anime writer Mari Okada's sci-fi version, AKB0048. Following galactic war and ecological disaster, the remnants of humanity live under a regime that has banned art and music. 48 years later, a new idol group undertakes a terrorist campaign to free the humans.

 

The second part of the anime tv series, AKB0048 next stage, debuts January 5th.
