This anime is based in a popular pop band from Japan known as AKB48. AKB48 is in top chart of girl groups who sell the most singles. This anime starts by showing a universe where entertainment has been banned. Whoever dares to entertain can be send to jail or killed. 48 years later of the existence of AKB48 a new group formed by courageous girls is formed under the tittle of AKB0048. Girls audition to become successor of one of the past members of AKB48. These girls must be able to sing and dance at the level of the original group and also be able to fight for justice. They are trained to hold massive interplanetary concerts with the only purpose of bringing hope to humanity. They are known as heroines by some and as terrorists by others but all they want is to disperse happiness. The story focuses on a group of girls so audition to become understudies of the former AKB0048 and hopefully someday become successors of AKB48. This anime in my opinion is a mixture of pop music and fights and well, I LOVE IT! This anime could be consider girlish? I don't know, all I know is that is very entertaining and the music is good. Check the video clips and enjoy!
My favorite song! (the ending song!)
