AKS Worth Watching, August 22nd

Every week we take a look at a bunch of 48 Group TV shows and give a brief run-down of what’s going on, because who has the time to watch all of these shows? Let’s see what was Worth Watching this week!

140816 HKT48 no Goboten ep12

140816 HKT48 no Goboten ep12 – Another school episode, with Ota Aika and Tomonaga Mio hanging out with some girls. Back in the studio, we test if singing karaoke at a faster tempo makes you better or not.

The school stuff isn’t anything special, but if you want to listen to “Let It Go” about 10 times, you’ll like this episode.

140817 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep147
140817 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep147 – This week our girls pair up in boy/girl roles and perform skits where one confesses her love for the other.

Kind of like the AKBingo danso episodes with less extreme crossdressing, and the girls are confessing to the “boys.” Pretty cute stuff.

140819 AKBINGO ep302

140819 AKBINGO ep302 – We continue last week’s karaoke battle, and a winner is crowned!

Rating: rating-four
More fun competitive singing from our favorite idols. If you liked last week you’ll like this week’s too.

140820 HKT48 no Odekake! ep81

140820 HKT48 no Odekake! ep81 – We return to the beach as our girls wait tables and sell shaved ice.

Rating: rating-three
Not too different from last week, but really cute and funny. Is it just me or is Ueno Haruka staring a bit too low when they’re talking to the dude in the tight speedo?

140819 AKB de Arubaito ep08

140819 AKB de Arubaito ep08 – Watanabe Mayu goes undercover as a fortune teller to find one last candidate before picking someone to be a guest on the AKB show “Renai Sousenkyou”.

Rating: rating-three
Again, the best parts here are Mayu goofing off being undercover.

140819 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep08
140819 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep08 – Takajo Aki is still in Vancouver, and she checks out some ziplines and experiments with more food.

Rating: rating-two
More of the same but nothing really too entertaining here unless you’re a fan of Akicha.

140818 SKE48 Ebisho! ep06

140818 SKE48 Ebisho! ep06 – This week we see how fat Oba Mina is, idols have some orgasmic ear-cleaning experiences, and Nakanishi Yuka pervs over Kitagawa Ryoha.

Rating: rating-three
Lots of weird random stuff going on this week, but pretty silly overall.

140815 HKT Shakariki 48 ep07

140815 HKT Shakariki 48 ep07 – Some poor parents decide it would be a great idea to leave their kids alone with Ueki Nao, and it’s adorable.

Rating: rating-four
Ueki is absolutely cute in this episode, she turns into a kid working this job.

140817 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 16 ep04
140817 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 16 ep04 – Part 3 of our Team 8 training series, this time with an hour-long episode. Vocal training continues, as well as something new: MC training.

Rating: rating-four
Even if you’re not interested in Team 8, seeing these fresh new idols go through a crash-course on performing on stage has been quite exciting these last few weeks.
