Obviously the art is great,but i'm not really sure about that gender bender thing.Especially when i think of what will come in future chapter
http://scans.nihongogo.com/index.php? The AKB 48 fans have finally come together and started releases better english scans with mediafire d/l.
I find the series so far very funny and unique. Minoru is surviving every challenge he faces even beating the girls at time. You don't have to know AKB 48 theater group since it teaches you along the way who the characters are.
Just discovered the series and read all 49 available chapters consecutively. I just couldn't stop...
I'm still a bit worried about the whole "cross-dressing" deal and how it will be resolved eventually, but it was incredible to see the feelings behind this manga, the story and the characters. Reminded me just a little of Bakuman, too.
Definitely going to follow that series.
Just a short question because I didn't cosplay yet: Do wigs really stick that tight?
