AKS Worth Watching, August 13th

Every week we take a look at some of the many shows the 48 groups have to offer, and we pick out what’s worth watching. There’s some must-watch episodes this week so take a look after the cut!

140906 HKT48 no Goboten ep15
140906 HKT48 no Goboten ep15 – Akiyoshi Yuka and Tanaka Natsumi go to an amusement park and have to ride a roller-coaster.

Rating: rating-three
Idols and roller-coasters tells you all you need to know, right? Natsumikan’s reaction is priceless.
140907 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep150
140907 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep150 – Part two from last week’s episode where we check in with how the members are doing with learning a new skill. Hoshino Minami is tested on her speed-addition, Wakatsuki Yumi shows off her beatboxing skills and Matsumura Sayuri sumo wrestles.

Rating: rating-three
Impressive and funny at the same time, a fun episode this week.
140909 AKBINGO ep305
140909 AKBINGO ep305 – Girls from all across the 48 groups undergo a dance audition for a chance to be a part of the Japanese production of The Wiz.

Rating: rating-four
Seeing different members having to do these dance routines is not only fun, but gives you an excuse to rewatch this episode. Also, Tano Yuka’s abs.
140910 HKT48 no Odekake! ep84
140910 HKT48 no Odekake! ep84 – Ueki Nao and her crew go to a gaijin dorm and test their English skills.

Rating: rating-five
Quite honestly the best Odekake in a long time. Such a funny episode filled with bad English, sex posters and Motomura Aoi’s tears. Watch this!
140909 AKB de Arubaito ep11
140909 AKB de Arubaito ep11 – Kobayashi Marina is still recruiting fine-looking girls to do a gravure shoot with AKB48.

Rating: rating-three
Basically if you like boobs you’ll like this episode. Because its boobs…and more boobs.
140909 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep11
140909 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep11 – The gang is back together and this week they visit Hong Kong for a round of expensive food and shopping.

Rating: rating-two
Unfortunately, getting everyone back together doesn’t do much to change up the “eat food, go shopping” routine of the last few episodes of this show.
140908 SKE48 Ebisho! ep09
140908 SKE48 Ebisho! ep09 – It’s an NMB48 invasion! And the only way SKE can fight them off is by getting in giant inflatable bubble suits and playing soccer, of course!

Rating: rating-four
They did something like this on the Tentoumu-Chu show, but this time we have more girls and it becomes crazy and hilarious.
140905 HKT Shakariki 48 ep10
140905 HKT Shakariki 48 ep10 – Komada Hiroka spends the day working in a bowling alley.

Rating: rating-three
As enjoyable as 20 minutes of P-chan being cute is, there’s nothing special about the work itself. Certainly check it out if you like P-chan though.
140907 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 16 ep07
140907 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 16 ep07 – More of last week’s less-than-exciting flower arranging competition.

Rating: rating-two
Like last week, just as boring. Its hard to make flower arrangement interesting to watch.
