Default AKB0048

AKB0048


Synopsis, screenshots, recommendations


Discuss individual episodes and first impressions of this anime here; reviews and final impressions should be posted in the Anime Reviews Forum. Post format and full rules can be found here.
__________________________________________


Initial thoughts:
I enjoyed the first episode more than I thought I would, the show appears pretty dark grapically with the main girls really not fitting in with the grey and brown world they are in, which is kind of what they were going for I can see. Also; all characters have hearts in their eyes and some have heartshaped highlights on their hair, that's just overkill.

I doubt this anime will be a popular anime to pick up, but at least the first episode showed promise of a very interesting show.

This show was like a commercial for the real idol group it's based on. I lasted 3 minutes before I stopped the feed.

Maybe if they based an anime on Baby Metal I would watch it.

Wow...that was complete and utter CRAP. Stupid premise, horrible music, bland and annoying characters, Vocaloid grade CG dancing, characters that have hearts drawn in their hair and on their eyes...no. Hell no. 1 and done.

So we'll see you next week?

Anyway, I need back story to this show. I don't understand an entertainment ban outside of the government trying to take complete control of the people.



I'll give it a couple of episodes I guess. Everyone needs some moe in my life, right?

The concept of this is horrible and the only reason I tuned in the first episode was simply because it's related to AKB48.

That being said, I did tune in and was very surprised about a couple things.



Also, I really freaked out at "Shoujotachi yo" being used in the show. There are very few AKB48 song s I'd say I love, but damn they sold me the show with that.

It's not really that "good," but it's still entertaining and I'll definitely be catching it every week.

That's exactly what it's supposed to be.

Just like how Tiger & Bunny was made as a commercial for the various brands the Heroes were advertising.

Oddly enough, episode two is far more action packed than I expected.

Episode 2


Sonata might be the only character in this episode interesting enough to bother with learning her name.
