I apologize, it would be really tragic if you had to learn something.

I know that after reading this, I just hate the entire damn thing, and want to burn down all of Japan because of it, UGH. Probably the people who like it, too.

Didn’t you know? Everyone who reads and comments on this blog is olllllllllllldddddddddd as fuckkkkkkkkkkk, so that’s why they sound so old. They were probably all born before 1990, sheesh! They should just be put on chunks of ice and floated out to sea like the Inuits do, right?

The anime is actually great and fun. And whats up with the comments above? They sound so old(don’t like school things on holiday…). AKB0048 is an Anime, ANYTHING can happen in it. As long as it interesting it would be great.

My country was occupied by both at different times, so I’ve heard many ridiculous stories about those times from my mother and grandmother. Since I was born when country had already gained independence, it was hard for me to believe that my grandmother had to hide from Germans just because she was a teacher. Her friends got sent to concentration camps just for being musicians. Later she had to hide her being Christian from soviets. When my mother was young, listening to foreign bands were banned. Her collection of Beatles tapes were illegal and she always feared that no one found out. There spies in schools, history and English teachers were kept under strict surveillance. There were curfews – people weren’t allowed to go out after certain hour. My father once told me that on breaks at school they weren’t allowed to do anything – they had to go around school building in circles until the next lesson. Those stories now seem ridiculous to me. Just how the first episode of AKB0048 had been when I first watched it. But when I think about it: if entertainment were banned, what would people do? Of course, there would be movements to rebel that ban. And it actually made lots of sense to me. The AKB0048 movement seems no different that what Lithuanian book smugglers did. (wikipedia link) I mean, smuggling books? Foreigners still don’t believe that our countrymen risked their lives and died just so they could bring books to people.

Entertainment in all its forms has always been getting banned for some reason or another by governments, moral, or religious authorities. Swing music was banned in Nazi Germany. Many places in the USA banned Jazz and Rock & Roll. Theatre. Art. Books. Music. Many of these are currently banned in Islamic nations under religious law. There will always be some busybody trying to ban something that you enjoy because they ‘know’ what is best for you. This seems to me no different. It doesn’t have to make sense. Kadian hits on a very valid point that can be expanded to real totalitarian governments. It doesn’t have to make sense. Governments have done weird things than ban Idols.

Of all the things they could choose, they chose idols as the basis for a resistance. Might as well have picked evil care bears. Oh wait, I believe that idea has already been taken…twice. But it worked because it was a comedy. From what I’ve read this show seems to be taking itself seriously. Which will be it’s downfall. I am not going to watch this.
