Yeah, I know, I said there will be more updates for the summer season and I still haven’t uploaded a sheet yet.
there is a reason for that:
I finally found it.
After all these years.
My new all-time favorite anime.
Ladies and gentleman: Let me present you, AKB0048, the first anime since years who made it into my top 5 anime list!!!
Now, many of you will probably ask yourself: “What, AKB0048? Never heard of it, and besides, it’s not even popular”
Yeah, I know. I was also very sceptical about AKB0048, which purpose is basically promoting the real life idol group AKB48.
I mean, the basic setting is: entertainment is entirely forbidden in the whole galaxy and some space idols are going to give guerilla concerts on the planets and fight the no-fun-allowed-police with some silly mechs and micsabers? (yes, you heard it right, micsabers). Seriously?
Yes, of course, and it’s fun!
I cannot say enough good things about AKB0048, because it was just that good.
I never have fanboy’d that hard for a series before. I rewatched every episode at least twice, I have collected every fanart available on the internet about AKB0048, I have told everyone of my (otaku) friends, they should watch AKB0048.
AKB0048 was the biggest surprise of the spring anime season 2012, maybe the biggest surprise of the year. My expectation was initially extremely low, but what I got in the end was by far the most exciting, awesome, dramatic and entertaining anime I have watched – for years.
Is this because of the awesome characters? The awesome insert songs? The awesome background arts? The awesome concert scenes? The awesome soundtrack?
Hell, it even converted me to a AKB48 fan, despite the fact, that I have nothing to do with the idol business in japan before. I have downloaded every single of them now, and I even watch those silly AKBingo videos – and I am enjoying every minute of it.
I watched AKB0048 together with Castlevaniapro93, and he even made an awesome fan musicvideo.
I still can’t believe how much I liked this series in the end. Even I can’t fully explain why AKB0048 was so enjoyable, so much fun to watch.
I cannot put into words what I experienced.
But one thing I’m for sure about.
AKB0048 is a masterpiece.
And I will never forget the fun I had while watching AKB0048.
Thank you Kawamori and Satelight for delivering this epic Space Opera Action series!
Because this is a show, I will remember (and cherish) for years.
And the best thing of all is:
SECOND SEASON IS ANNOUNCED FOR 2013!!!1111
Fuck, 2013 can’t come soon enough.
Oh yeah, since AKB0048 last episode aired a few days ago, I can finally concentrate on making some sheets again. So expect an update in the weekend.
So why the hell are you even reading this now, when you should have been watching the first episode of AKB0048 already?
Seriously, go and watch AKB0048. You don’t know how much fun you are missing out, if you neglect this awesome series. Go and watch it – NOW ^_^
