That's a nice fact. (:
I've recently started to become a fan of Mayuyu (RL) and AKB48 in general, thanks to the anime.
I find almost all of the songs used thus far were really catchy, especially the OP.
Just like with THE [email protected], I think my music collection is gonna grow a lot by the end of this series.
It is. Yukari Tamura is one my favorites.

Combat Idols ep 5Show
Normal routine, and they choose to practice on their 'day off'
Hair 'Stamp'Show
The 'producer'(?) has a Diamond figure in her hair instead of a heart like the others, and the other non-idols (the Tomomi family) they meet have different diamond shapes in their hair, and it sounds like it's only females who get it.
Maybe it's a mark of their career path, but then it being applied at such an early age seems a little odd for a society that seems as free-form as what we're led to believe, and the AKB girls would probably get it removed..

I still do think the hearts and diamond in the hair are just supposed to be an art design thing, even though they have a pattern regarding what those girls are. I don't think they matter in story, as in for people in the story they likely don't even exist. You can even see the hearts moving their position in a girl head when she turns around for instance (check ep5 17:42-17:44). If it was important for the story, how would they move XD?

In the same way that they're still there even though the hair grows, I highly doubt Nagisa (I think that's the name) has it in the same place in the flashback vs in the present. It might be a holo-injection thing, IRL people get their hair colored, in the future they get it 'stamped'? Might also explain why all the idols have hearts, while other professions have other 'stamps' and guys don't have them..
Though the dance instructer should have one with that possibility, and I didn't notice it if he does.

Maybe that could be an explination for why the idols have them at all, it's their way of standing out in a crowd, while still being able to pass for normal people when they're on an entertainment-supressed planet.

I get a feeling of this anime trying too hard to portray itself as something important. This, coupled with poor voice acting and rather bland story progression is making me feel bored about this series.

Well, that's because half of them are inexperienced since they're only AKB48 members and not professional seiyuu.

Someone is translating the glossary that appears in the show main site. It does cover many interesting info about the universe.
Although the glossary updates are usually up to date with what we saw on the series, so it may contain spoilers from latest episodes. So if you don't want to be spoiled, don't read it if you're not up to date.

Link is here.

Ep. 6Show
This applies even in real life: Being an idol means having fans and antis. Maybe untrue in real, but this anti gives advice of being closer to perfect.
Orine becomes the first one to have handshake with fans, and first to meet anti.
And armed otakus help them... with their own machine. Wow.
It seems that Chieri knows some of the enemies...

AKB0048 - Episode 6Show
Haters gonna hate!
On the more serious side of things, this episode seemed to have created a lot of Orine fans. Seeing as how it seems each of the seven girls will get their own episode in a sense, I'll definitely be looking forward to finding out more about Chieri since, to me, she's the most interesting and mysterious character of the group (not only because she's voiced by Mayuyu).
Also, the wota kinda freaked me out. o_o

Man, I'm really enjoying this to be honest. And so Chieri's family situation is revealed. And poor Takamina D: And looks like Kanata can't become a successor until Takamina graduates. :/ What a tough situation.

Ep. 7Show
Under = Successor in training, sorta.
Chieri has pressure of related to enemy.
Current Takamina has pressure of standing in her pigeonhole while Kanata cannot take over unless she's gone.
Even the 76th generations are not happy, too bad.

Ep. 8Show
TAKAMIINNNAAAAAAAA D: D: D: D:

Man, the moment she got hit and I saw the blood, I immediately freaked out. I mean seriously :( And it's sad to see Takamina trying to maintain her face when meeting up with Kanata and whatnot. And I want to hug Yuko for saying that to Takamina<3 I don't think I could've said it better than her. Hopefully Takamina won't give up her dream because of Kanata. (But I really love them both ><)

Ep. 8Show
The next stage is guarded by more enemies.
Status:
- Takamina 5th is confused between her own dream and Kanata's predicted future. This causes her to lose focus during combat, and get injured.
- Another few moments on the 76th generations.

Question: did Acchan ever speak a line in the anime? I just realized that I can't recall any... According to ANN, Acchan does have a seiyuu assigned (Miyuki Sawashiro)

No, so far we only saw her moving her mouth during a concert to sing along with the music, which i believe is sung by AKB members and not the successors seiyuu. The reason she was given one is likely because there is more to the Center Nova girls disappearance than we know so far. We also may get some flashbacks in the future where she is actually talking.
