Time for this weeks AKB49 raw thread
A color page this chapter, and a lot of things really did go down this time. Those build up chapters really do make the pay off chapters worth it.
I just post the highlights typically to get things going
They've had time to process it already, so it seems like everyone silently agreed to treat this like it was no big deal. In contrast to Minori who's breaking down, they're all just acting like its another work day from the sound of things, to show him that this doesn't change anything between them. Though I'm partially basing that off google translate.
They already knew for a few chapters now, shits been going down for some time.
They're finally all in the same place now after running around for a few chapters. They know, he knows they know, so he's putting it all on the table and revealing it as soon as he can and trying to apologize. Its about the gesture in a way, Its no use hiding it anymore. Not everyone knows, but the staff and main members all know. Before the end of the night probably everyone will know as well.
Sounds like you've missed like a dozen chapters, since this shit has been the focus of the entire final arc.
