I started watching this drama because it had an interesting title, and it turned it out to be a very pleasant surprise. While the incessant fanservice shots put me off a bit, the story is really very amazing. The drama manages to communicate the power of the 3 main characters' dreams, and so much so that after watching this drama, I looked up the 3 leads and am now a firmly established fan of AKB48, the idol group they belong to. XD
I think that a good portion of the feelings that they manage to convey has to do with their real-life struggles as idols, and it really shows. This show is definitely worth watching (even if fan service makes you go like ugggghhhh XDD).

At first I found this dorama annoying, full of overacting and fanservice, with a stupid story and boring plot. But good point was the episode duration (28min) and that you get to sympathize with the three girls and to smile with the bizarre details of the story. But I imagine this is one dorama for all the AKB48 fans out there (so watch it if you like them). It was entertaining and really, really simple. Hirota Leona was very good as shachou!

Well, first half was way better. The idea is very good but there are still lots of undone things. I don't even talk about the very end which I couldn't understand. What was the meaning of it? Second season? SP? Movie? Anyways, I'm happy that my faves from AKB48 were here. Especially Minegishi Minami, whose always so cute.

I thought it was cute... it was a little too perverted, but it was a late-night drama (that's the style...). I like idols and the girls are cute, so I found it interesting. It's about three girls who hiding from a killer by disguising themselves as a boyband. It could be a lot better, but it was decent.

I watched this one strictly as a guilty pleasure, much fan service for fans of AKB48...

I'm waiting for the sequel too....

Very cheesy and ridiculous but it still managed to always put a smile on my face and make me laugh :)

Really motivating and inspirational (if you don't take the fan service into account)
