AKB0048 may have been terribly panned by both critic and fan alike, but these people are all sheeple. Just following along with what others have said or done. But what many of these people have not done is to simply, watch the show for what it is, and then examine what lies underneath its cutesy exterior to come to the unmistakable, undeniable conclusion that the show, AKB0048, is fucking brilliant.
AKB0048 is a Spring 2012 series that, despite being produced by Satelight and written/directed by Shoji Kawamori (every damn Macross you’ve ever watched, Patlabor, Genesis of Aquarion) and Okada Mari (Toradora, Ano Hana) seems to have drawn so much skepticism solely for the reason that it’s based off a pop idol group that everyone forgot who’s behind it. However, because I liked shows like The iDOLM@STER and actually listen to AKB48 and know some of the members (no thanks to one or two fanboys I met in my NS time), I decided to give this show a go.
