Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

AKB48 is an idol group consisting of, you guessed it, 48 members. However, currently the group holds more than 48 members, with even more members scattered in sister groups. They are probably best known in the West for the song "Sugar Rush" from the Wreck-It Ralph soundtrack.

AKB0048 is the Anime based on the group.

AKB48 provides examples of the following tropes:

Just before your very eyes
A river is flowing
Broadly, such a great river
Darkly, deeply, even so
The current is fast, even so
Do not be scared, OK?
Do not wander off
That’s right, the opposite side is there
So more, believe in yourself.

    • Also, the lyrics for "Beginner".

I can't do anything
I can't do it well
And so?
We're still young
I can't do anything
I can't do it right away
That's why we have possibilities
