Majisuka Gakuen 5 Announcement

vlcsnap-2015-07-20-13h38m48s154

We’re doing this.

Seriously.

Yo Era here.

Majisuka Gakuen is a particularly memorable adornment of AKB48 to me. It was one of the earliest AKB-related things I watched, and as like many of you, I was fascinated by the gratuitously bloody sight of girls punching the shit out of each other, despite shaky plotholes and bad acting at times.

Over the years I’ve grown disdainful of it, unfortunately. Majisuka Gakuen 2 was acceptable despite multiple plotholes big enough to fit a city in it, and I did enjoy the captivating characters involved. Majisuka Gakuen 3’s change of setting was a no-no for me, though the improved action scenes and quite some awesome footage of Miyu was its silver lining.

And then came Majisuka Gakuen 4, a step back to the old formula that worked. I was so hyped.

But ultimately disappointed; the fact that Sakura could plow through so many opponents with relatively little character development, the lackluster character design of the 4 Heavenly Queens, a plot revolving on Zombie and Kamisori always getting kidnapped or put down- not unlike Boy Hostage Robin. And then there were the cameos, which while a breath of life, had so absolutely little to do with the plot that it was obvious they were worked in for the sake of simply being worked in.

But credits where credits are due; Salt is plain bloody friggin’ awesome.

Well now, after a cut-short episode 10 thingy where the season went unresolved, where do we go from here?

*checks trailer*. Guns… yakuza… and guns.

Huh.

Definitely dangerous territory here. These introductions into new grounds could either make it or break it. Once again, I hope the series prove me wrong and produce an ultimately stunning piece of art.

And c’mon. Acchan. Yuuko. The original ‘Maji da yo’!

We realise Aidol haven’t been on top of our game lately, but we’d rather not see this fall into bad sub territory. Yankee talk isn’t exactly easy to translate- and considering the number of subpar translators there are out there these days, I’d rather see this in the right hands.

So. In conclusion. Aidol already has galvanized a team together in anticipation of Majisuka Gakuen 5, and is ready to take it on.

Remember: Ain’t no other way to live but seriously. Climb those stairs.

    150105 AKB48 Konya wa Kaeranai

    Konya Kaeranai

     

    Yeah, half (no pun intended) of Aidol have been set loose in Japan. Someone call the relevant authorities.

     

    But fear not, even with them abandoning work I’m sure you’ll get your beloved subbers back in time. At least, until they have this little Visa that I have… *cough*

     

    But anyway!

     

    Even in this dire time we’ve managed to come up with something to release- this something being a specific episode of Konya wa Kaeranai, which the trio of Muto Tomu, Iwata Karen and Takeuchi Miyu hosts. …Even if it’s about 6 months late, it’s still an extremely memorable episode worth subbing- watch (or listen :/ ) on as Muto Tomu makes a dastardly mistake upon her dear senpai Miyu, causing her to leave the studio and Karen having to carry to majority of Radio program on her solo self! Super credits to Michael Soares for whom without all this pretty text would not have been possible!

     

    …And normally I’d take this time to say ‘Vote for Miyu!’… but yeah, she’s not participating this year… so why not go for Karen instead? The sweet, beloved and downright crazy girl has never made it into the Sousenkyo, let’s give her a sporting chance!

     

    Signing out, Era-AKB49Musicalisstillnotdone-Memory.
