I like it, my biggest concern is how they'll have the premise be explained of why they banned entertainment without it seeming incredibly dumb.
>> No. 9546 [Edit]
Totalitarian governments are dumb like that, aren't they?
>> No. 9548 [Edit]
Idols seem to be the new thing apparently.

It seems to be trying to mix in some action with idols to make it "interesting", although the fighting isn't as interesting as it is in that other one with the constant singing.

It's not very good, but I'll watch it to avoid being bored, I guess.

All of this idol stuff is making me not like them
>> No. 9549 [Edit]
I found much of it to be rather strange and confusing.
especially every time she fought with her dad, I mean, it's just a poster, who's gonna see that?
and why would a poster even be that hard to get anyway? does this planet not have printers or something? anyways...
I'm willing to accept the no entertainment thing, they might have their reasons for it, but it seemed odd to that they would specify call out idols like they are in OP's pic, but that might be becuase of the concerts, I dunno.

Also odd is that they allow sports and sports are a form of entertainment right?
the kid had a soccer ball and was talking about joining a team.
but, says he latter says he wouldn't love that girl if she became an idol (I'm guessing becuase of the entertainment law) so wtf?

strangest part of the ep has to be the start of it.
Where in there was a group of like five guys trying to get past a random(?) road block to see the idols, and the solders there seemed to be on the look out for idols.
and what didn't seem to be that far of a walk away for the four little girls, (maybe they teleported) is a ginormous freaking caynon with like 500,000 people and a huge spaceship flying around blasting music that can be heard from far away with spot lights and shit.
and It's boggling the mind, I'm siting here wondering.... for one, how the hell didin't those guards or anyone else notice this large crowd forming? does AKB0048 not care if they draw attention to their underground illegal concerts? they certainly didn't seem to like the fans being endangered once the solders did show up.
and what's up with this solders, they seem offaly eager to beat up and shoot at pretty 13 year old (seemingly defenseless) girls who are just singing and dancing, that's a pretty damn douchebag thing to do.
I wonder what they'd say when they get home and are asked how work was.
"how was work today dear?"
"we rained a concerned and I got in fist fight with some little girls, they got away but I managed to beat up some concert goes"
"boy I feel good about myself! Nothing beats ruining other people's fun!"

one other thing... how is a normal girl able to run as fast as a speeding rocket train?
A girl who I might add has some powerfully weak voice acting.
How did she even get accepted? they made a big deal about it, but do they like accept every single applicant they get or something? the main character can't sing for shit, not that it seems she even submitted anything with her application anyway.

anyways, I'll certainly keep watching.
lots of wtf stuff going on, but it seems best not to dwell on it.

The dad is a high ranking official, he wouldn't take any chances, I mean it's a totalitarian government we are talking here.

>Also odd is that they allow sports and sports are a form of entertainment right?

Well, they haven't shown anymore back stories, maybe sports are just used for propaganda tool.

As for your other complain, maybe we should wait for more. We never know, maybe the soldiers are indoctrinated as fuck.

okay, so maybe the solders are just uncaring douchebags. real solders do fucked up things during war time, so it's possible I guess.
but still, what's up with the excessive use of force?
I thought these guys were pirates or something when they attacked and raided a defenseless civilian luxury transport ship without provocation or giving any warning.
Man, the folks behind the this anime sure do want us to hate these guys bad, like big bullies or something.
But damn, do these guys really need to use such uncalled for overly aggressive force?
What's wrong with just setting up a blockade, and hailing the ship when it approaches, ordering them to surrender any idols they might have onboard, and if not, threaten to use force.
but instead the first thing they do is fire on it?

Oh and yeah, the voice acting for Nagisa kind of blows, as expected of a first time VA.

Why don't they save themselves the trouble of holding auditions, and just select the girls with hearts in their hair/eyes?
>> No. 9665 [Edit]

I was thinking that same thing.

Funny how they didn't test whether they could sing or not before selecting them, instead just threw them directly into the battlefield.

I also find it odd that they claimed it was all a simulation, yet those explosions looked like they had very real effects on those girls getting hit by them, and how none of the girls who were 'eliminated' were shown or heard from again when the battle was all over.

Another thing, Chieri was shot, what makes her any more quailed than the other girls who were also shot?

Maybe, just maybe... they only used the dummy rounds on the girls with the hearts?

Would be an interesting plot twist, but I think they just made a blunder...

I had been wondering during the last few ep, why they haven't attacked the planet.. and well there you go... ignoring that entertainment isn't illegal on all planets.

You know, it seem more like they hate idols and only idols, not so much entertainment itself.
the sports thing from ep 1 aside, does this universe not have any other forms of entertainment? the recent episodes have shown they have television, they must have television programs as well. but I'm not seeing signs that read 'no TV' painted on the ends of missiles, or posted around town.

I like it so far.

It feels like Chieri has pretty much taken over as the main character at this point.
