Due to AKB0048's recent announcement that auditions were open for people who had been unable to reach the second round of auditions for various reasons, the management had recieved multiple messages from people wanting to take the audition. Possible auditioners were weeded through (a surprising amount seemed to think they could simply get past the first round if they messaged the management, telling them they couldn't make it - too bad 00 did have a list of the people that passed the first round), and those that approached 00, and were actually eligible, recieved - if needed be - a ticket (on randomly selected flights to prevent DES from intercepting) and paid for stay at Akibastar.
While the limited audition would be open until the next actual chance to audition, the management had decided to do the second round at several different dates, to make it easier for the auditioners.
And now, the first date had been decided and arrived, and nervousness was definitely high as they waited for Hikari-san to arrive with their objective for the second round.
