AKS Worth Watching, August 29th

With a three-day weekend on the horizon (at least for the American folks out there), what better way to pass the time with some idol TV? Let’s see what’s Worth Watching this weekend!

140823 HKT48 no Goboten ep13
140823 HKT48 no Goboten ep13 – Anai Chihiro and Tomiyoshi Asuka visit a zoo and play with the animals.

Rating: rating-four
I may be biased being a Chihiro oshi, but this certainly was one of the more entertaining episodes of Goboten in quite some time.

140824 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep148
140824 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep148 – More romance from last week as the girls perform romantic skits with each other.

Rating: rating-three
Pretty much more of the same as last week. If you like girls dressing like dudes and confessing their love for other girls, look no further.

140826 AKBINGO ep303
140826 AKBINGO ep303 – Our girls watch a series of VTR skits based on real experiences members have had and answer quizzes based on them.

Rating: rating-three
A lot is lost here if you don’t know Japanese but there’s enough cute moments to keep you interested even if you don’t fully understand it.

140827 HKT48 no Odekake! ep82
140827 HKT48 no Odekake! ep82 – The group is split into two teams to work on a magazine. One team sets out to a park to interview people and the others go to a restaurant to photograph some delicious-looking pasta.

Rating: rating-two
Save for an emotional moment midway through, there’s really not much going on here.

140826 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep09
140826 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep09 – Kashiwagi Yuki visits Hawaii! Food, bikinis, and Jet Skis!

Rating: rating-two
Pretty much the same as the last 4 episodes. Yuki wanders around Hawaii and fails at English in cute ways.

140825 SKE48 Ebisho! ep07
140825 SKE48 Ebisho! ep07 – Members pair up to try to sell products at a Japanese equivalent to a Wal-Mart.

Rating: rating-four
Really fun and cute as all these idols try their best fishing techniques to lure in customers.

140822 HKT Shakariki 48 ep08
140822 HKT Shakariki 48 ep08 – Wakatabe Harukua goes to the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks baseball stadium to work as a tour guide. Her father, Wakatabe Kenichi, played for the team for many years.

Rating: rating-three
Really cute to see her work hard, and I love how she has a family connection to the place too, gives it a lot of meaning. Plus, you don’t get to see Wakaharu on TV much so this is a treat.

140824 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 16 ep05
140824 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 16 ep05 – Representatives from each AKB48 team practice for an upcoming darts competition.

Rating: rating-two
Nothing really special here, but if you want to see idols play darts, you’ve found your show I guess.
