AKB0048 Ep. 7: Mimori Revolution

Well, the show of shockers, AKB0048 returns to shock us once more, this time with who Mimori inherits. Wait… why are you walking towards me with that taser? *zap*

I always find that outfit hilarious.

Seeing that the title of the episode is “Mimori Revolution” it’s not hard to guess who will be at the center of attraction. In fact, the spotlight seems so focused onto her, it’s surprising she hasn’t burst into flames yet.

Said the male/female.

But wait! A certain other member of the cursed 75th generation has some action too. With the whole confrontation with Takamina, it seems like she seems to be on her way to understanding the whole logic behind 0048’s way of choosing successors.

The startling revelation like 2 ice cold canned drinks on the cheeks.

But other than that, the whole episode is all Mimori. With a brand new look and a brand new outfit, she seems ready to rock the stage. And seeing she lost quite a bit of hair, she seems to be even more energetic from the lack of weight.

Hmm... she does resemble the original Mariko to some extent.

So all in all, this episode did shock me as I have no idea who Mariko is hence I did not even expect her to be the next Mariko. The fact that Mariko has a song about her is hilarious, that and she’s a sadist makes things so, so much more fun to watch. I cannot wait for her to go full S mode. But one thing I don’t like about this whole succeeding the former members is how they seem to lose their identities after they succeed. It’s like all the hard work Mimori put in is forgotten as she becomes Mariko, and is not important anymore.

S is for Sadist

Sadiistiiiiiiiiiiic

Then there’s plot progression. Apparently Mr Creepy-I-Have-Eyes-Of-A-Moe-Girl aka Chieri’s father has something planned for the whole Center Nova thing. Plus the pervy ex-Center Nova photographer is a betrayer and something big is going to happen.

never did like her

AKB0048 has been a series with a lot of surprises so you could say I’m not going to be surprised at the fact I get surprised by the twist they pull out. But before all that action happens, I really want to see the rest of the girls have their succession. Highly unlikely but one can hope.
