Sorry for bumping this thread but I just finished watching the second season and was interested... Personally, I loved the first season and thought it really could have gone somewhere awesome - like it was building up to this hugely dark story for season 2, each character was certainly set up well enough to have their own arc... and yet it just didn't really deliver. Added to that was the change of focus - It's like: season 1 = World War 1 and season 2 = The Dark Side of Pop Idol.

The last 3 eps of the second season felt really rushed as well, despite the series having filler episodes - it just makes no sense to do that when we could have seen more of the Akibastar freedom fighters, for example. If there was a season 3, I'd honestly be surprised, and I say that as a fan. There are definitely some great bits in Next Stage, but almost everything I loved about the series (the characters, the music, the mystery etc) was carried over from season 1.

AKB0048 is definitely one of my favorites, it's probably the most tear-jerking anime I've watched that definitely left a mark on me, but I doubt there'll be a season 3.

I really am hopeing for a third season. I was left with so many questions! Does Kanata finally become a successor? What about the 76th and 77th generation trainees? How does Nagisa cope with succeeding Acchan? How intense will the battle for Center Nova be? And many more questions! I really really hope that they make a third season. I literally cried during the last episode of season two!

This is a series I keep watching over and over. A 3rd series would be welcome.

I dont follow the real life group, but I loved the anime, so it would be nice to have a 3rd season.

I hate to bump an old thread but I really would love to see a Season 3 as well.
I just finished Next tonight and I really need so more Chieri and Nagisa in my life. lol
I guess the only real way to so that the fans want more it to help push the sales of the show.
I just got Season one on blu ray at Fry's for $14.99. And will try to get the second season as soon as I get paid.

That last one would be interesting. The trainees will likely have graduated or become succesors. So we could see a new akb while watching a new generation struggle.

It would be very interesting to have a season 3! It would be great to see who the 76th generation succeeds as I am still curious about a couple of them. (Chieri - Jurina, Sonata - NyanNyan, etc) and would there be different successor names to succeed to promote the current members?

I think each center nova brings her own unique power. Acchan 13th had the power to shine and bring hope to the people. Chieri had more of a fighting/action power. I wonder what other center nova power there is.

im just more curious to see who succeeds who!!!

any news of a season 3 yet. it needs a new season to fill in some of the holes that are left.


There's practically nothing *but* holes - the 'plot' is about as threadbare as it gets, serving mostly to give the excuse for musical performances. (The idol genre equivalent of the beach episode in a fanservice dominated show.)

Reel it in! Sorry for bumping this, but the director of the 2nd season, I need you to make a 3rd season. If you don't have the right voice actors, then get someone that sounds the same but older and make the time like 2 or 3 years from now.

I'm not gonna say I'm sorry to bump this up, even if I should.

As much as I absolutely loved the anime (both seasons, for different reasons) I don't think they will ever have another season. Just a gut feeling about it. Most of the No Name crew have graduated from AKB48 (last to do so was Iwata Karen, I think), and most of the members involved have as well (Actually, of the 9 main successors that appears on episode 1 of the first season... 6 of them have graduated, 1 is about to (Nyan-nyan), and only two remains (Mayuyu and Yukirin)

I would love to have a third season, even a fourth one, though.

Talking about plot holes, there's a shit load of them :

- When is Kanata succeeding ? That was like the big thing at the end of season 1, then season 2 comes around, Kanata doesn't even seem to care anymore !
- Who will all the understudies suceeding, btw ?

Most importantly because, eh, it was the only actual death of the anime... WHO KILLED CHIERI'S FATHER ?!

(And please, find a goddamn voice actor for her, I want more Kitarie in upcoming seasons (if there's even one). I mean, don't tell me that, of all successors that could have ranked early on their General Elections thing, they choose her... for fun ?)
