Here’s my theory: AKB0048 is a post-Macross galactic story, wherein Sensei Sensei is none other than Lord Gepelnitch himself, who’s succeeded in creating an Anima Spiritia farm in the form of the AKB idol franchise. This is what prevents the Protodevlin from devouring the whole galaxy.
When the hunger is too much, the Kirara deliver him the most concentrated form of Anima Spiritia, usually an idol performing the Center Nova role. This is what happened to poor Acchan the 5th. The Protodevlin have bred Kirara to replace their scouters. It’s a biologically efficient mechanism. As the Vajra have shown us, biotechnology is very, very powerful.
There’s a false conflict going on: no one really wants to reinstate the Center Nova position precisely because of what happened to Acchan. If anything, it’s only Yuuko who’s hell bent on being the Protodevlin’s lunch because that’s her dream.
In other news, the creep factor of the show went up exponentially this week with the combination of Suzuko’s positivity with Makoto’s terrible body image. IT’S OK TO BE YOURSELF, YOUR BODY PANDERS TO PEDOS. Now you fanboys needn’t rage in reaction, I’m sure your hearts are PURE as you watch this show. I don’t think anyone is surprised by this kind of content from this show.
Remember, PURITY is the BIGGEST THING. It trumps talent, hard work, and guts. It’s that thing that has Kanata beat Takamina V; it’s that thing that has Nagisa freak out Chieri. I want to see Chieri crush Nagisa, even just for half an episode. I’m sure they’ll be perfectly together by the end anyway.
THIS SHOW IS ABOUT PURITY AND VIEWERS WHO PURELY WATCH THE IDOLS FOR PURE REASONS DESHOU? So let’s not have a shitstorm in the comments ok?
