I am watching both simultaneously as well! Both are good. Cliffhanger on the last one in next stage!


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.


You have very good taste in anime. I am watching all of those too :D

And yes, the song in the trial was great!!! I love how she requested it by reciting the lyrics as her testimony. It is way out there, idols who are also mecha piloting terrorists fighting for idol freedom but I really like it!

When I first heard about this series, I thought to myself “This series' plot sounds like a load of crap.” Fast forward five months later, I checked out the first season, and I smiled, laughed & cried. Going into the second second, I had some of the same emotions hitting me especially towards the end. The series makes me wonder why I didn't learn about AKB48 and the idol industry earlier in my life.

Series Grade
A+
For anyone reading, please at least check out the first episode of the series and I hope it hooked you before you drop it. If you do, I thank you for at least trying

I really loved both series overall! There is some weird 3DCG dancing that put me off from buying it (the times when they switch to a view where you can't see their faces and their limbs look like tubs) but overall the series is great, very emotional for a fighting idols series. The series finales of both seasons were really great. Loved the music, the seiyuu did a great job. I love how they included versions of actual AKB0048 happenings as well.

There was a thread that was created a week ago about if there was any news about another stage. Honestly, I really hope there will be a new stage so we can see the NO NAME unit again even now that Amina Sato has graduated this past week. Before I die, I hope there would be at least a third or final stage in the future as of writing this. There's so much to still tell in my opinion, but if Second stage really the end of the series. I guess I just have to hope that the Kenkyuusei were all promoted using their names and they revived the Teams (I don't recall there ever being through the series, so if some one would like to correct me on that; cool (Unlikely though). On that note, I'll just leave you with this screenshot of three members of the unit NO NAME

If you haven't check this series out yet, please look at my post from august on this page.

Thank you
