Hi people~ I'm a 21 year old, currently in army in Singapore(finishing with army soon in around 2 month's time). I'm into Japanese stuff, be it Japanese culture, goods, anime, manga and of course Japanese idols :D

I've been a fan of AKB48 for almost a year now, though it is only recently that I have become obsessed with them. The reason I became an AKB48 fan is actually kind of amusing as idols were never my interest in the first place. I was following this online Japanese lessons taught by a native Japanese speaker, Japancast.net. They posted a video of the now famous DANCEROID, Aikawa Kozue, dancing to RIVER. That was when I first knew of the existence of AKB48. As I've said previously, my obsession only recently due to AKB1/48, I mean come on, a galge featuring real life 3D girls? How good could that get? Soon I found myself engrossed in the game and wishing to find out more about this group AKB48.

Soon enough, I found myself watching all their shows, AKBINGO!, Shukan AKB, even back-dating to when the show just started, and that was when I found my oshimen, Ooshima Yuuko, during the second Gekikarabu when she ate the spicy hamburger ><

This is the first time I'm contributing a news blog, and hopefully, I will be able to provide you guys with timely and accurate news update of this AKB48 group.

Love your favourite idols?  Well then close your eyes and imagine them clad in bikini, like what you saw? Then this is the game for you! If you were a fan of the first game, then you'll definitely get hooked to this game with all the new features and surprises. Don't worry even if you are a first-time player of this game, or any types of galges, the game-play is easy enough for everyone to catch on pretty quickly.

Well, experienced players, you know the drill, reject every girl's advances on you except one who will ultimately confess to you and thus completing one round of the game.

Ok, now for the new features that makes it more interesting than the first game. Special date events, which instantly instantly boost your relationship meter like a best answer does.
Notice the anchor sign beside the DAY 10? That means it'll be special date day! :D I'm sure you'll wonder what happens during special dates, well here's what happens.
A one-on-one date with your bikini-clad idol!!! No one else will interrupt your date. By the way there will be no subtitles during special dates, only audio. Bonus: Guess who is the person in that special date? ><

Taking forever to choose the answer when in real-life it has to happen in a few seconds? They've introduced this special feature as well, according to the scenarios, you'll be given a 5 second time limit to answer certain questions. If you fail to answer within the time limit, the game will help you answer with an answer chosen at random. Better keep your fingers crossed that it'll be the best answer :/

If the idols are interested in me, shouldn't she be sending me randoms texts to catch my attention instead of making every text a request to date? Yeah well, they've improved this as well, and with a Guam-feel to it!
With the animated emoticons, it feels as if they idol is texting you real-life, not just some scripted text :)

Oh, in addition of the girls stalking you at the end of your date, hinting that they like you and sometimes ask you who do you like the most. We have the famous "Dare da?" random after-date event! You'll be given a few choices to choose from after hearing her say, "Da~re da?" A correct choice is equivalent to a best answer.

"Damn, I'm left with only one more photo to complete her collection, but I have to reject her and hope she will become available for me to date again on DAY XX to get it." Troublesome? I know, so do the producers, which is why they introduced the "seed" feature, after completing the game one round, you will get a seed with every completion.
Notice the bottom-right hand corner of the screen has a seed-like icon? That's the number of seed you have. Notice the bottom right hand corner of the photo has a seed-like icon as well? That's the photo you unlocked using the seed. Now THAT saves me a lot of trouble.

Do you have this experience with the first game when you accidentally accepted a girl's request to meet up again the next day, leading to the confession. BUT the girl you are aiming for isn't her. So now you have to start again from scratch. Fret not, in the second game, you still can go out with other girl even when you've reach confession stage with one of the girls.
The girls will also react to where you set your eyes on. Moving the analog stick can allow you to look at different place of the girls body. Try staring at their boob for long enough and they may even call you ecchi! <3 But it differs among the girls, some like it, some are ok with it, and some hate it. Try it at your own risk!

Confused about who's your true oshimen? Leave it to the oshimen calculator!
Well, how accurate it really is, I'll leave that to your own discretion...

Lastly! A game cannot be complete without EASTER EGGS! Enter passwords to unlock super rare photos of your idols! :D (Instructions on how to unlock them here).

Well hope that helped. Enjoy the game!
