AKB48 will get their first anime in Spring 2012.
"The anime will center around nine idol candidates who aspire to be "legendary idols," in the motif of AKB48's real-life general election Top 8. 
The idol group members will "battle" each other in auditions to be voice actresses in this project, and the newspaper reports that the members' standings in "sōsenkyō" (general elections) popularity contests will not be a factor. Out of 200 candidates from AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, and its other spinoffs, 30 will be selected and announced on a dedicated website in November. In the final round of auditions held in Tokyo, nine will be chosen to perform the theme song."
