* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: At least two episodes imply that you need to be selfish/greedy in order to accomplish your dreams. Indeed, episode 20 has Mimori [[spoiler:after becoming Mariko Shinoda the 8th]] being portrayed as "sadistic" ([[spoiler:supposedly as sadistic as the "real" Mariko Shinoda]]) by telling Kanata that if she want's to become a successor, she has to be "greedier".
** The next episode seems to imply that you can only accomplish your dreams alone (i.e., without other people backing you up). At least, that was the conclusion Yuko came to when trying to figure out how to become the Center Nova, which was all brough on when the former Minami Minegishi the 5th told her about [[spoiler:"Position Zero"]].

* OlderThanTheyThink: A group of singers leading a revolution against a government bent to destroy all entertaiment. Does that's sound like the plot of ''VideoGame/RevolutionX'', except replacing Music/{{Aerosmith}} with Music/AKB48?

* CastingGag:
** EVERY single one of the Understudies is voice acted, at least in the Japanese version, by active and former members of the REAL Music/AKB48 group.
** Also semi-averted in one way. They didn't have Chieri Sono or Mimori Kishida voiced by the same person as they become in ''Anime/AKB0048''.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: One popular theory is that instead of a freedom fighting group, AKB0048 is actually unknowingly trying to awaken an EldritchAbomination. The DGTO and DES forces are merely {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s taking measures to prevent said abomination from awakening.

* TearJerker: Any dedicated Music/AKB48 fan probably choked up a little bit when Yuko told the girls that [[TheAce Acchan the 13th]] was the final center nova, and that no one would ever replace her--the RealLife Acchan had announced her graduation from Music/AKB48 only a month or so prior to the premiere of the anime.

** However, this is subverted later on when it's discovered that [[spoiler:Yuko wasn't actually a true Center Nova, due to her refusal to recognize others.]]
