I wonder if the name is titled in such a way but the crew or Akimoto Yasashi, such that it pays homage to one of the most well know Mecha franchise in the industry. But it’s quite an intriguing thought. Other than the title, it seems 4 manga series based on the original manga will also be released (and none on the magazine that I am already buying…), they are, based on ANN,
- Nakayoshi, February issue (on sale December 28)
- Bessatsu Friend, February issue (on sale January 13)
- Magazine Special No. 2 issue (on sale January 20)
- Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine, March issue (on sale February 9)
And thank god… it’s a monthly thing… or I’ll really go broke… The first to be release is on Nakayoshi, a Shojo manga Magazine~ and this should set the tone of the anime series itself as well as an overall expectation.
In addition to the title and manga plans, the site of the AKB0048 is also up along with news that the final names of the 30 finalist to be in the Voice Senbatsu will be announce on the 2ndof December, and a public audition to select the 9 seiyuus for the anime will be held on the 13th of December.
Will we be congratulating any NMB48 members on the 4th of December, on them being the Finalist of the Voice Senbatsu?
Well, we can only guess.
For now if you want to participate as an audience in the Voice Senbatsu on the 13th, the only way is thru an online lottery on the AKB0048 Website.
For the record, I don’t like the character design as it is… please let it be something else!!!
