Everything Wrong With AKB0048 (Season 1)

Now, don't get me wrong. I, LOVE, this show. I watch it every day, I listen to all the songs and learn the lyrics. But even I can point out some flaws in it, whether minor or major. And this anime still has yet to be roasted, too. I hate to admit it, but this anime isn't perfect. Nothing is. So I'm going to be pointing out the flaws... and gods help me, roasting this anime. So, here we go, time for me to suffer.

Episode 1 [Part 1 - Sins 1-40]

1) "In a future where mankind has moved to space..."
How the hell can humans live in space? There's no oxygen, we wouldn't last 5 minutes.
*DING*

2) "AKB0048..."
Roll credits!
*DING*

3) "Stop, you hobos!"
Well that's uncalled for.
*DING*

4) Also, do you have any proof they live on the streets? No? Thought so.
*DING*

5) "Now, let me see those ID's!"
Hold up, did you ask them this before? I don't remember you asking this... or did you before this anime started?
Either way, I'm still sinning it.
*DING*

6) One of these things is not like the others... It's you, frill-lace girl!
Vanellope: You're not from here, are you?
*DING*

7) Yeah, no, those guards would have definitely seen Nagisa and Chieri. God, this Government is stupid.
*DING*

8) "Nothing, I heard a rat or two."
Comparing a 9 year old to a rat. Just because she has a high-pitched voice does not make her a rat.
*DING*

9) "That was close."
'That was close' cliché.
*DING*

10) "Here." *Yuka tosses Nagisa a juice carton*
Where did you get that carton, Yuka? You don't have a bag of some sort on you, and you weren't carrying it before.
*DING*

11) "So, Chieri, what's live entertainment like?"
"You'll know when you see it."
Is this just to make it more magical? It seems to be working.
*DING*

12) "A!K!B!0048! WOO!"
"They really came!"
... All the dirty people will be looking at their screens in cringiness.
*DING*

13) *Two of the girls jump over the barrier, while the other two just squat underneath it*
*The view shows an empty area*
Well it makes sense that there's no stadium, since entertainment is banned and all, but, really? Out in the open like that? Don't you think anyone policing from above will notice the suspicious large crowd there? Idiots!
*DING*

14) *Aitakatta starts playing*
This song will be sticking in everyone's heads. No sin because it's awesome, but I will be giving a sin to the fact that it's very loud. But then again, the guards outside are dumb as hell, so... screw it, sin it anyway!
*DING*

15) *Chieri starts singing along*
And yet we don't get a story of how she knew about the band until season 2.
*DING*

16) *DES starts interfering*
Well about time you slowpokes!
*DING*

17) "Takamina, can you hear me?"
*Takamina's outfit changes colour* "Mariko-sama?"
Okay, two things. One, how did Takamina's outfit just change colours on the spot like that? Is there some technology they have in there?
*DING*

18) And two, Mariko, if you're a Successor, why the hell are you not on stage too? You're even DRESSED in a stage outfit!
*DING*

19) Anyone else notice there's still singing while they talk and fight?
Proof they lip-sing from the originals!
*DING*

20) Yuko pulls a peace sign at them... I guess for plot convenience that urges them to want to join AKB because they were noticed by YUKO?
*DING*

21) Also, not a sin, but I'm jealous of the four. Yuko smiled at them and held up a peace sign at them. Why can't I?! Oh yeah, the real Yuko graduated... Damn it all!

22) So now it's four years later... Have people forgotten about that concert?
*The concert is being taught in Nagisa and Yuka's class*
Wow. It made history.
Convenient event makes history cliché.
*DING*

23) That's a large ass scream, Nagisa.
*DING*

24) This teacher is so crap at his job. He can SEE that Yuka has her phone out! And he's not reprimanding her for it?!
*DING*

25) We interrupt your normal school life anime to bring you Orine working in a factory.
*DING*

26) Also, Orine is 13. Shouldn't education be mandatory for her, whether she has parents or not?
*DING*

27) Not a sin, but I love how those ladies are taking care of Orine like she was family to them. Bless those ladies.

28) "Oh, sorry! My rice ball is ringing!"
THAT is what you call your phone?! Why?!
*Orine takes out her phone*
Ohhh, that's why... I'm still sinning it.
*DING*

29) Also, how did Orine end up with a phone anyway? She's 13, lost her parents within the last four years, and if I recall correctly, she wouldn't have a lot of money, barely enough to afford a phone!
*DING*

30) Yuka's scrolling through her phone and Nagisa's trying to look in, but Yuka won't let her...
She sounds like a Tsundere when she says it though.
I'm calling her Tsunda-Yuka!
*DING*

31) Holographic phones in the future? Does this mean it's going to happen?
And should I sin this... I will just in case these holographic phones aren't invented. Then we can say that this show lied to us.
*DING*

32) Suddenly, Takamina.
*DING*

33) Takamina looks like she hasn't changed from the 4 years. Have any of the others changed?
*Yuko appears*
Well, Yuko's still cheery, but she's bigger in height at least!
She better not get on my nerves though...
*DING*

34) "Yuko's chest has gotten bigger..."
PERVERTED NAGISA CONFIRMED!
*DING*

35) Just to clarify, when all the members appear, you get a different translation depending on your supplier. When I watched this on Crunchyroll, Yuko said, "We want to see your smiles!"
And then when I watched it on the DVD, she said this: "We want to see how gay (happy) you are!"
XD Oh Yuko...
*DING*

36) "Yuko said she's waiting for us!"
Uh, no, Takamina says that, not Yuko.
*DING*

37) And what did that water drop represent exactly?
*DING*

38) Oh look, they're doing their auditions where their dreams started! How f*cking convenient!
*DING*

39) "Yuka, you were amazing!"
"You sounded just like Mayuyu!"
Does this mean she'll succeed Mayuyu in this anime?
*DING*

40) "Shy main character" cliché.
*DING*
