140408 AKBINGO! ep283

With so many shows ending last week, 48group TV content is a bit on the lighter side. Let’s check out the highlights, shall we?

140405 AKB48 SHOW! ep24
140405 AKB48 SHOW! ep24 – In honor of almost-graduate Oshima Yuko, AKB48 Show this week is a Team K special; with a couple of skits and performances featuring Oshima Team K. Yuko also has a heart-to-heart with Suda Akari, and there’s some heartbreaking behind-the-scenes footage from when they cancelled Yuko’s graduation concert.

Rating: rating-three
Not a whole lot to write home about in this episode, though it’s interesting to see some of the behind-the-scenes footage. I’m sure we’ll get a lot more of that with the upcoming documentary.

140405 Kanjani no Shiwake 8
140405 Kanjani no Shiwake 8 – Speaking of Suda Akari, if we take a look at Johnny’s Entertainment group Kanjani8’s show, we see that reigning limbo queen Akarin is being challenged by AKB48’s own Minegishi Minami and Hirata Rina. How low can they go?

Rating: rating-four
Easily the best Akarin limbo challenge to date!

140406 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep129
140406 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep129 – NogiDoko this week is a bit of a hidden camera segment. Nothing too exciting except for Hori Miona being cute and Hoshino Minami being a terrible liar.

Rating: rating-two
If you’re not a hardcore Nogizaka fan you can skip this one.

140408 AKBINGO! ep283
140408 AKBINGO! ep283 – AKBingo’s announcer needs a new oshimen now that Oshima Yuko is leaving, so the newer generations of members are going to appeal to him. 15th generation makes their AKBingo debut as they play a musical chairs/quiz game hybrid.

Rating: rating-three
I love 15th gen and it’s great seeing them on AKBingo, but its not the most exciting game they’re playing. The winners get to do 10 second appeals, which are fun. If you like 15th gen or you’re interested in checking them out, you should watch AKBingo this week.

140409 HKT48 no Odekake! ep62
140409 HKT48 no Odekake! ep62 – The girls go visit a theater and do some acting and improv exercises. Even Sasshi and Goto-san get in on the fun!

Rating: rating-three
Any time they make Haruppi do tongue twisters, its gold. Some pretty funny moments this week.
