    the easiest way to get the kojima haruna (or anybody else) 1 star green, is playing special song of the day (shonichi & shoujotachi yo). you'll get the green member as a reward rather than receiving the "Natural Heart Ver". but i dont see nyan anywhere. maybe wait for tomorrow? i only see yukirin in today's shonichi SS reward in Hard mode.

    as for the janken, after you chose between the rock paper scissors and win the janken, you have to choose the stick. and if you lose the janken, you have to choose the pan to guard yourself from the hit.

    I got the golden bottles multiple times before when playing Shoujotachiyo but I dunno why either and I don't think it's because of getting excellent consecutively either. I got 50 excellent's straight in my combo on Shonichi and I still got a blue bottle.

    you can change your unit in the members section( above the lesson icon)
    on the top is where you can change your units
    next is the gallery where you can check the stats of the member you have
    third icon is a place where you lock your members so you won't accidentally delete them
    fourth icon :( is a place where you "retire" members for hearts
    the fifth one is the album where you can check which character you didn't collect, members you didn't have will not have their sounds or chibi avatars included in your album

    I just need Annin to evolve Sumire but I guess I need to wait lol.
    There is no star cap for member. Different outfit has different rarity. At the moment, only KFC and Heavy Rotation outfit have rarity of 4* that can evolve into 5*. Seems that the 4* Iwake Maybe outfit is also in the game but it's probably extremely difficult to get.

    Missing only green Kojiharu to evolve my Yukirin that I got from handing in 10 tickets. My brother has her for some reason so maybe you get different random rewards from the bottles from the stars?

    And I was just lost 5 gems playing janken cuz my phone lagged on me and I couldn't tap the block button for some reason. =.='

    I'm pretty sure you can get green Kojiharu by getting SS grade in Shoujotachi Yo hard difficulty, which is impossible :lol: Green senbatsu members are very hard to find, I wouldn't use them to evolve 3* to be honest.

    Anyone knows if the skill of the members can only be activated once person, or multiple times as long as criteria is met?

    For example my 3 star mayuyu skill is after 15 seconds, can obtain a skill jewel which increase score by 5% for the next 7 second, does the skill activates every 15 sec or only once?

    Also, anyone have the skills of the heavy rotation units?

    What's the best way to utilise unused three star cards? Use them for lesson or trade for golden ticket?

    I don't think they can be activated more than once since my Mayu's one only activates once per song and i only see around 5/6 of the member skills during each song which is the amount of members you have.

    Three one star cards basically give around the same bonus as a three star card so they're just better upgrade material for lessons unless you plan to use them in your unit. I personally used mine to trade in for golden tickets to get a member I like since they have better stats than the usual three star members you get (excluding janken ones). And I'm not sure if the rewards you can get for trading golden tickets in change or not later so I suggest just keeping them for now incase there's better stuff to trade in for later.

    Okay so I think I'm more or less getting the hang of it, but I still don't understand how that training thing works... Like I was trying all the options there were and there was a time where I selected a character and I think I somehow used it on my char and then it disappeared, I wonder if that was the training? Anyway I'm not even sure how I did that anymore, can someone tell the steps for that? Also when I did it, it was on my main char, but since the other girls are the weaker ones how can I opt to train them instead?

    One more thing, there is an option in somewhere else where you can select how many and whichever characters you want and then put a lock on them, do you know what I'm talking about? What is it?

    Sorry for the trouble :p

    Use Ctrl+f to quick search key words to find any questions you may have. The FAQ has been split into two sections; general and event.

    Q. How do I download this game?
    A. iOS: Make a Japanese iTunes account
    Android: Download the latest APK file found at the top of this post.

    Q. Can I play only one side?
    A. Yes, you can choose to not play either side if you wish. There are sometimes login campaigns on which then is advisable for you to login on both sides for the rewards.

    Q. How do you unlock group function?
    A. You must complete a set of quick challenges; send a friend request, play a song, do a lesson, change your unit

    Q. Can I get graduated members e.g. Oshima Yuko?
    A. Any members that are graduated cannot be gotten in the game anymore. However if you have that member from when she was still in the game, you can still use her in your units.

    Q. I keep getting these messages popping up while I'm playing like this or this.
    A. The first messages is a download error message meaning you may not be connected to the internet so check your connection. The second is an error message. Press the clear cache button before the game loading screen if it constantly pops up.

    Q. After I transferred my account to a new device, my old device keeps having an error message popping up. How do I get rid of it?
    A. There is no available method to get rid of it. Delete and re-download the app to play it again on the old device.

    Q. I beat *insert song name here* score challenge but it says it hasn't been completed.
    A. Maeshika Mukanee score challenge is currently bugged. Also, expert mode does not count towards score challenges.

    Q. Should I janken or easy dasu?
    A. If you want a guarantee of a 4 star member or higher, play janken. It also allows you to reroll if you get a member you don't like whereas the other mode doesn't. Easy dasu is entirely luck based on what kind of member you get so play at your own risk. 50 gem dasu on the other hand is a better method in farming costumes for a member/team compared to janken/easy dasu.

    Q. What is this ticket that's not the usual golden colour?
    A. If you have tickets that aren't gold, that means they are special tickets and are usable in the special ticket exchange during the event.

    Q. Where do I find the special ticket exchange?
    A. Special ticket exchange is on the last page of the dasu menu after the regular ticket exchange.

    Q. Can I go for more than one member in an Oshimen Event?
    A. No, you can only go for one member on each side during an Oshimen Event. At the end of the event, your current oshimen is what is counted for the event point rewards.

    Q. How do I get photos for *insert member here*?
    A. Photos are only available as rewards from events. To find out if an event has photo rewards, refer to my event posts linked at the top of this post.

    Q. How do I get Watanabe Mayu/Matsui Rena R .ver?
    A. These are only given out as rewards from events. Check event post for more details.

    Q. Can I check the stats/skills of members from special ticket exchange before I trade for them?
    A. Yes you can. Click and hold onto the picture of the member and the status window will pop up.

    Menu Navigation
    The menu has 5 different options on it. From the front, they are:
    - ライブ (Live) This is where you go to play the game.
    - レッソン (Lesson) This is explained above where you train your members to increase their stats.
    - メンバー (Member) This option is for everything members related from creating units to locking members and trading for tickets.
    - ダス (Dasu) Where you go to play Janken and trade in golden tickets.
    - その他 (Other) Basically the settings for profile, friends etc

    Home Screen

    The home screen has many functions including the following:
    • Intimacy list - Red button in bottom left corner
    • Notices (お知らせ) - Aqua button in middle left area
    • Status bubble - Top left corner
    • Mailbox - Central top area
    • Gem Purchase - Left of mailbox (trolley bubble)
    • Challenges - Right of mailbox (black bubble)
    • Group Change - Top right corner
    • Oshimen Home Screen Customisation - Click on disc
    • Rotating Banners - Under group change button
    • Menu Navigation - The five silver bubbles on the right

    AKB48 & SKE48 Mode
    There is now AKB48 and SKE48 modes, two different modes with two different sets of members, songs etc. It is up to you whether you want to play both, or only one of them.

    If you are playing for the first time, you will be asked to select either AKB48 or SKE48 mode. If you have played the game before, you are free to switch at any time through the Group Change button accessible in upper right corner of home screen.

    The following will stay the same between both modes:
    - Gems, hearts, tickets, rank, LP, invitation codes, special tickets, badges, intimacy and friends​
    The following are separate between the two modes:
    - Dasu costumes, songs, costumes, disc photos, members, inventory capacity and mail.
    If you are playing the game for the first time, you will notice that the group change function is unavailable. To unlock it, you must complete a series of easy challenges:
    - Send a friend request
    - Play a song
    - Do a lesson
    - Change your unit​

    Lessons (レッソン) or training is what you'll be using to increase the stats of your members and evolve them. It's the second button in your options. There's two kind of lessons, the first one is a normal lesson and the second one (yellow one) is the special lesson.

    Normal lessons use hearts and absorbing up to 5 other members at a time to increase a member's stats until they reach 100%. It increases pretty quickly at the start but requires more and more hearts and members absorbed to get through the last dozen percents and the stat increases get less and less.

    Special lessons are used to evolve your members increasing their star by one e.g. your default center going from three stars to four stars. It also resets their training from 100% to 0% so you can upgrade them again for higher stats. Special lessons require specific green members to evolve and they can usually only be found in the special song (Shonichi and Shoujotachiyo so far) and also require them to be at 100% trained else they can't be upgraded through special lessons.

    When training a member in normal lessons it requires more hearts for each 20% of the upgrading process. Refer to the table below for how many hearts is requires to consume one member during training for how star level of members e.g. it requires 100 hearts per member consumed on a 5 star member if it's currently between 60-79%.

    Member (メンバー)
    The members button is the third button options which I believe everyone's figured out but I'll explain each part of the 5 options inside it.

    1. is to edit your units, changing who are the members, center etc. You can have up to 5 units. The middle green button is to automatically change the unit to your strongest possible unit whereas the left one (blue) is to make this your default unit. Press the red tick button at the bottom to save when you're done else it doesn't save which is a mistake I made a few times. The green button on the right is to choose your unit from scratch where you pick 5 members and that's your new unit instead of changing one at a time.

    2. this is to check all your members and to see what stats they have by clicking on them. Pretty basic stuff.

    3. is to lock your members. By clicking on them and locking your members, it means they can't be absorbed in lessons and traded in for hearts and tickets. Basically a failsafe way to protect yourself from accidentally losing members you want to keep. They also protect those member's special lesson partners too.

    4. is to trade in members to gain hearts and golden tickets. The hearts gained are pretty negligible so I don't suggest doing this. To gain tickets, you have to trade in a member that is at least 3 stars.
    3 star members give 1 ticket, 4 star members give 20 tickets and 5 star members give 50 tickets.

    5. is the album where you can look at each card and hear them talk. You can also check what photos you have for each member and what costume is needed to unlock the others. Just some added features in the game.

    ダス (dasu)
    Updated drop rates for dasu as of October 30th here

    First option is Janken which requires 5 gems to play. You choose rock, paper or scissors and it's like the variety show versions where there's a bat and a helmet to choose from after you and the AI reveal your hands. The bat and the helmet left and right of the screen will switch around and are not set in place. When you win a round, you can keep the member you get or pay another gem to continue on to another round for better rewards.

    Winning 1-2 rounds gets you the blue pot whereas winning 3-4 rounds wins you green pot. These always will usually get you a 3 star member. Winning 5+ rounds of janken will get you a gold pot and these guarantee you a 4 star member. There is still a chance of getting a 4 star member when you win first round to fourth round but the chance is extremely rare and increases by a bit as the rounds go by. After you win all 5 rounds, you're allowed to use 3 gems to replay the 5th round and have another go for a different member. 5 star members (UZA etc) are extremely rare and are not guaranteed on any round. Basically a high risk high reward mini-game.

    Second option is easy dasu which is basically a gachapon-esque mini-game where you pay 5 gems for a random member usually 3 star (or if you're extremely lucky a 4 or 5 star) member. There is also a function for a 50 gem dasu that gives you 10 members and you are guaranteed a 4 star member minimum.

    Third option is the ticket exchange where you trade in tickets for members. They used to be the クールタクト. ver (Cool Tact version) but now the Choco Mint and Pajama costumes are available for 20 and 200 tickets respectivly.

    Fourth option is the special ticket exchange that is only available for events. You can trade in special event tickets for the event costume of members of your choice usually 10 tickets per member unless differently specified..

    Intimacy Function
    The intimacy function is a permanent addition to the game where using your members in lives will increase their intimacy and unlock you rewards and bonuses.

    - Your intimacy level/degree of intimacy with each member increases whenever you use them in a live.
    - Your unit center's intimacy level increases at double the rate of your other members.
    - Each costume has a set amount of intimacy it can achieve e.g. 6 star members at 1500, 5 star members max at 1000 intimacy and 4 stars max at 600 intimacy.
    - Intimacy level on a specific costume on a member will stay the same even if you get rid of the member and then obtain the member again.
    - You can check the intimacy level of your members at the bottom left corner of your home screen. It will also automatically pop up after you finish a live.
    - Reaching specific amounts of intimacy will result in a variety of rewards and benefits such as hearts and gems along with mental and performance boosts for that member.
    Intimacy Level Rewards:
    70 - 100x hearts
    140 - 1x gem
    210 - 200x hearts
    280 - 300x hearts

    Profile Page

    On the left of your profile page are your badges which you can access the badges page. The green button under your photo is to change oshimen while the blue round camera button above is to change profile photos of that member.

    Under the display of your main unit, there are five boxes showing the following from left to right:
    - Themes completed (also known as challenges)
    - Costumes obtained (includes all costumes of every member)
    - Photos obtained
    - Voices obtained
    - Motion? (Not sure as of yet)

    The second tab displays your oshimen and her intimacy page.

    To access your badges page, click on the second option in the other (5th option) menu. The first tab shows all badges, the second is the growth type badges (have a green title) and the third tab are for limited type badges. Badges are a new feature that can be obtained by satisfying a condition set in the game. You can display up to 3 badges and they're basically for display for others to see.

    There are two types of badges; growth type and limited type. The growth type badge is a badge where it will continue to upgrade with the more conditions in the game you fulfill like how challenges continue to upgrade and become harder. Limited type badges on the other hand can be earned by achieving certain conditions and are usually event related. Limited type badges are one time only and will also give rewards Some badges may be hidden.

    Growth Type Badges
    - Login 5 times (each has to be on a different day)
    - Play a live 10 times.
    - Achieve full combo 10 times.
    - Achieve rank SS 10 times.
    - Perform a special lesson 10 times.
    - Win 5 rounds in janken (basically one full janken aka 9 gems).

    The third button in the Other menu (その他) is your friend page. The first tab in here shows the friends you have where you can have up to 30 originally and increases up to 60 maximum capacity the higher your rank. You can use your friends as a guest when playing a song once a day. The second tab is pending friend requests that others have sent you which maxes at 20. Click on them to accept (the red button) or decline (blue button).

    The last tab shows has two parts. The top part shows your ID to give to others for them add you and the bottom part is to add others by inputting their ID.

    Hearts are gained through completing songs gaining a set amount depending on difficulty and rank you get. You also get a bonus for getting full combo. You use hearts in lessons to upgrade your members from 0% to 100% in the first lesson and it requires more and more hearts to upgrade as you progress towards 100%.

    Gems (also known as sound stones) can be used for the following things:

    -Dasu (4th option in the menu)
    -Janken (requires 5 gems and then 1 more for each round you continue in)
    -Refilling your LP to full when you don't have enough for a song (requires 1 gem)
    -Refilling mental to max when you run out of mental in a song (requires 1 gem)
    - Increasing your maximum member capacity by 10 members after reaching the cap of 70 (requires 1 gem). Maximum capacity of 700. After 300, a gem only increases by 5 capacity at a time.

    To gain gems, you can complete challenges viewable in the top right corner of the screen where there's usually a notification bubble outlined in pink. Only some give gems as rewards so click on them to check. Other methods including compensation from updates and maintenance and rewards from events. Otherwise you press the green trolley bubble to pay real money for gems.

    LP - Live Points
    You start off with 50 LP at rank 1 and for every rank, you gain 2 LP until rank 10 where it only increases by 1 LP. So for example at rank 15, you'll have 74 LP. After rank 50, you gain 1 LP per every 2 rank instead so at rank 60, you'll have 114 LP. You regain 1 LP every 4 minutes so 15 LP every hour.

    LP needed for each difficulty:
    Easy - 10
    Normal - 20
    Hard - 30
    High Speed - 35
    Expert - 45

    Wednesday - Shonichi
    Thursday - Love Shugyou

    Namida Surprise - Appears when it's someone's birthday and all rewards are of that member. (Song appears in red at the end of song list).

    This is the blue bubble with an envelope on it in your home screen at the top next to your gems. Your messages consist of two things:

    Challenges completed: You get a message giving you gems for completing challenges, usually getting a higher rank you haven't gotten yet (A, S, SS) or ranking up.

    Getting a higher rank in a song that you haven't gotten yet e.g. you finally get B rank on HebiRote on hard difficulty whereas before your highest was a C rank. You'll receive a member as a reward usually three star members or a bronze Takamina (always the B rank reward for all songs that aren't the special ones). To check what rewards there are for the song, press and hold the difficulty of the song and it'll show them.

    Messages also expire from your message box after 14 days so if the members/rewards aren't taken out by then, they will disappear.

    You can also open all messages on that page at once by clicking the green button (全部開ける) at the bottom of the screen.

    To delete all opened messages, click the blue button at the bottom.

    Challenges (else known as themes in Japanese) can be accessed by clicking on the bubble in the top right corner of the home screen between the mailbox and Group change buttons. There are four kinds of challenges:
    1. Reaching xx rank (5, 10, 15, 20, ..., 35, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80)
    2. Collect xx costumes (50, 100, 150, ..., 950, 1000)
    3. Complete a song on easy with full combo xx times.
    - Every time you complete this challenge, your full combo count will reset.
    - After completing up to 10 full combos on easy, it will proceed to normal and then finally hard.​
    4. Complete xx song with xx score or higher
    - The songs will be set but you can play any difficulty to complete this challenge.
    - The score requirement increases by 10,000 for each challenge and starts at 100,000.​
    Check the full list of rewards here: http://akb48game.jp/news/detail/136
    Note: For any reward that is an event ticket, it has been changed to a normal reward e.g. hearts, Takaminas and tickets ever since the end of the Natsu Matsuri event.

    Songs give the following the amounts of EXP.
    Easy difficulty - 30 EXP
    Normal difficulty - 65 EXP
    Hard difficulty - 110 EXP
    High Speed - 135
    Expert difficulty - 190 EXP

    For songs that are 15/25/35 LP (daily songs and Namida Surprise), they instead give the following amounts of EXP.
    Easy difficulty - 30
    Normal difficulty - 50
    Hard difficulty - 120

    To check how much EXP needed to rank up, look at the top left corner of your screen under your rank.

    Guests are needed each time you play a song. They join your unit for one song and give you a boost to your performance and mental stats so it's usually a smart idea to find a guest with high stats. Whenever you play a song with a guest, that guest gets 5 hearts. If the guest was a friend, they'll gain 10 instead. You can only use a guest that is on your friend's list once every 24 hours however.

    General Gameplay
    By racking up combos, you can get bubbles with a star in them that gets you a pot that are either blue, green or gold (in increasing order of worth) that rewards you with a member at the end. To rack up a combo, get greats and above only. Anything less will end your combo. However only bad and miss will reduce your mental whereas good will not.

    You also get a bonus multiplier to your points when you play depending on the colour of your members. This is why the bubbles in the song are purple, yellow, red, blue or green. For example when you start off, you have one blue and 4 red members. Every time you tap a blue bubble during the song, you will see a bonus x1.10 and a bonus of x1.40 for a red bubble. At the top right corner of each song's difficulty, there's a colour e.g. HebiRote is red. That determines which colour of bubbles appears most in that song.

    Center bonuses occur when you have a four star member or higher as your center. With a four star member, you will get perfect instead of excellent on the bubbles that match the colour of the song. This gives you a tiny boost in score compared to the normal excellents. Likewise with a five star member where you will get unbelievable instead.

    Ranks are from C to SS. At the start, your performance stat is only high enough to get you to a B even if you were to get excellent for the whole song. By raising your performance stat through lessons, you can reach the higher ranks easier. To view how close you are to the next rank during a song, look at the bar in the top right corner.

    There are three kinds of pots, blue, green and gold increasing in rarity in this order. The chance of getting a gold pot is extremely rare and is up to luck (getting excellents does not change anything). Only gold pots can drop the surprise pot reward which is not a certain drop but only a chance to drop within a gold pot.

    To change the colour of your pot (blue -> green -> gold), you increase your rank in the song (B -> A -> S -> SS) to have a chance of the pot changing colour. Your pot can only change colour once so a blue pot can't reach a gold pot during the duration of a song.

    The higher the difficulty of the song, the better the drops e.g. easy will usually always give one star for blue pots whereas expert will usually give a two star member. Only hard and expert songs will have a chance to drop a 4 star member. The following 4 star outfits drop from the following songs unlocked at these ranks.
    Iiwake Maybe - Songs unlocked at ranks 1-16
    Flying Get - Songs unlocked at ranks 17-30
    Heart Ereki - Songs unlocked at ranks 31+

    Skills can be seen by pressing and holding a member to open up their status page. Skills can only activate once per song via different requirements and have varying effects.
