Episode 3


LOL, that frog outfit. How cute.

An alright episode I guess. That performance near the end pulled it off pretty well :3. Nice to hear the original OP song imo and grats Mimori!

Honestly I had never heard of the idol group until after I saw season 1 and looked it up to see if there were any more episodes. I was hooked IMMEDIATELY from episode 1. The reason I became so enthralled was simple. Freedom. If the only way to entertain was to do so in direct violation to law... if you had to FIGHT to be able to sing... could you do it? Could you possibly throw your life away for some music? If the police were to find a CD on you and throw you in jail, would you still be making mix tapes? What began as something seemingly simple, the more I thought about it, the more it became something completely neccessary.

#First Amendment ftw

@hpulley: I had not thought about it until you mentioned her, but Lynn Minmei's battle singing had quite a prolific effect on me. Thanks for that insight.

Ep 2 continued to follow real events...AKBingo anyone? Murchaburi Dodgeball? Look it up on youtube....

Since crunchyroll is behind, I watch every ep twice, once as soon as it comes out, and again here to support my AKB.

Glad you're watching again to support it! I seem to be the only one who watched it this morning! And the only one who watches it here first... Out nearly an hour and yet I'm the only vote or comment...

Seems to be mirroring most real events like the voting. Will we see some shaved heads soon? I hope not...

Seems like magical girls now!

Ah yes, finally some action the way I remember from season 1. Nice to hear one of the performances as well.

Haha. I hope we don't see any shaved heads either. Miichan had no reason to go that far

I hear she went to a handshake event, so she is safe.

I'm gonna re-watch ep 4 in an hour or so, then go to another website and watch ep 5

I read yesterday in a different forum topic that people dropped this show.First CR was nice to add season one and maybe better if you watched because it wasnt tha easy for the new generation to get there.And othe things get explained too.

It is too bad about the one week delay but I'm very glad that CrunchyRoll picked up this show. I am watching it here.

I enjoy the music of LoveLive! more but AKB0048 is fun with the battles, fighting idols especially in season one. Season two seems actually more like just an idol show without the battles aside from the first episode. Still fun with the elections, fighting to be Center Nova and so on.

Season one is neat though, seeing them come up through the ranks.

I am watching both simultaneously but since it isn't particle physics I can figure it out ;-)

For a lot of you not watching this it has gotten really good.If you dont understand season 2 CR was nice to put up season one which is a must watch because what happened in season one is now showing up in the latter parts of season 2.Due to constraints this is one I am still watvching and glad not to drop.You know people liked Bodacious Space Pirates and reminds me of this.

i still rather finish S1 before continuing on with S2. i liked the first couple episodes of S2 when it began, but it went to the backburner behind Love Live!, Vividred Operation, Pet Girl of Sakurasou, and Kotoura-San.

i keep playing S2E1 over, i like that song that comes up when they're on trial.
