[Review] AKB0048

The popular all-female music group AKB48 (and its sub-groups) has its own anime.

If had followed a manga called AKB49〜恋愛禁止条例〜 (Ren’ai kinshi jōrei), which is about the behind the scenes of the group (present-day) through the eye of a crossdresser who somehow made it past their auditions, prepare to be disappointed as it’s completely different.

Even if you didn’t read that, or not really a fan of AKB48 in general, you might find this anime to be different. Approach this anime different from what you would do with most other anime, and you would actually enjoy this.

To those who are curious about the voice cast and the music in it, they are voiced by inexperienced (read: new) seiyuus and actual members from AKB (and its sub-groups like SKE). Not much of the usual seiyuus are involved.

Note: This anime is still ongoing, and I have not dropped this anime yet. I’m saying this as I usually write reviews when either two situations has happened.
