    About
    In what is being billed as a crossover between game, application and market tool, AiKaBu trades handshakes and Sousenkyo votes for stocks and shares, using the free market as a way for fans to support their favourite members. The application simulates the volatile bulls and bears of the stock market in real-time, using the data gathered from players constantly trading, buying and selling stocks in their idols’ “companies” to shape stock prices (read: popularity) and determine who makes it to top of the Exchange. No rich-fan votes or Janken-style luck involved, just good old market forces.

    from the screenshots it shows game start icon, invest your money on your fav idol, if your idol wins in janken, election e.t.c. you get to earn.
    I think need to test it out first, if it requires real assets to invest, it's more like investment rather than game, which is typically dangerous.

    TBH the translation is still vague.
    There is no telling whether this is a game or a mobile app.
    Investment isn't a game, if you're using real money to do these trading activities, it's totally different. People lose money when stock market crashes. It's not something to be joked about.

    If it's a mobile game then, I rest my case, at least I'll be relieved.

    this sounds more like an opinion piece rather than a translation.

    sooooo idk if they are being serious in the video, but apparently they are encouraging people to play this game in order for people to practice their investment skills as a tool to do actual stock market investments in the future looool

    The game system looks legit stock market though.

    If I am an investor for this Aikabu thing, I'll be cautious if I find out Inafune actually involved with this. This guy is infamous as a fraud.

    I tried to play but for me is difficult.
    Can someone do a summary of what we have to do in this game?
    I invested some YL in Komiharu.

    And someone know how to get Komi's photos?

    You can get photos by going to the second-from-right button on the bottom bar (the gold one). There, you can try doing a 写メダス - either with YL or diamonds. There, you will get a random picture. You can do one free YL dasu a day.

    Have the same issue. I think the app uses real jp market time. that means when the market is closed in japan at night for example you can put in an order an it also appears in the last tab on the right in the stocks menu. these are the recent transactions. at when you click on it shows a time in the future , in my case 0:02 (next day after midnight)
    Regarding the word that appears ->

    Original Japanese sentence
    保有

    hoyū kabu
