AKB0048 - Next Generation by Shei99 AKB0048 - Next Generation by Shei99
Fanart for AKB0048 anime. The anime is airing right now and it's based on the real AKB48 group, Japan's National Idol who's extremely popular right now with fans from kids, girls, teen, men...even older ladies know them.

I decided to do fanart of the fictional AKB0048 trainees with the real AKB48 members and the theme is AKB48 songs.
---------------
Center -
Maeda Atsuko/Nagisa Motomiya - Give me five [link]
I based the art from the actual cover of the single. [link]

Right -
Takahashi Minami/Kanata Shinonome - Beginner [link]

Left -
Oshima Yuko/Sonata Shinonome - Heavy Rotation [link]
Here's the explanation of the video. [link]
Since most westerners don't get it and think the video is fanservice when in Japan. This video actually brought in more fangirls to AKB48, [link] and many kids and girls have no problem with this. The female producer created this video from the perspective of a Japanese woman. Don't force your own culture on another.
-------------

Overall, if you like crazy storyline with musical space terrorist idol groups spreading happiness through the universe with the power of music, you should watch it :P
It's directed by Kawamori who created Macross franchise too. Macross fans should see alot of resemblances.

Since I'm a Yuko fan, the real person, Sonata remind me so much of Yuko. 

Sonata wear rabbit ears 

Sonata is super energetic and happy and so is Yuko 24.media.tumblr.com/c1e9d00009… 31.media.tumblr.com/b02c1b16c5…

Sonata grabbed one of the girl boobs and butt once and Yuko always grab members' butts and touch their bodies lol nsae01.casimages.net/img/2013/…

Man, what was I doing? I thought the Sonata just as Jurina because of some evidence of the anime, but Yuuko is a great possibility ! o3o
And honestly, if I were not such evidence would not have compared with Jurina, the aura of them are different :iconmochinomplz:
Thank you for opening my eyes, now I hope to Sonata become the 10th Yuuko !

Sonata is too cute to be Jurina. Jurina is cute but she have more of a cool vibe too <3
