AKS Worth Watching, July 4th

No “AKB48 Show” or “Tentoumu-Chu! no Sekai o Muchu ni Sasemasu Sengen” this week, but we have two new shows debuting to look into. So let’s take a break from celebrating freedom to watch cute Japanese girls!

140628 HKT48 no Goboten ep06
140628 HKT48 no Goboten ep06 – Goto Izumi and Tomiyoshi Asuka visit a school and meet some hilarious athletic dudes. Back in the studio, the HKT48 girls turn into Mythbusters.

Rating:rating-three
Some of the students at this school are pretty funny to watch, and the studio segment is pretty fun and interesting.

 
140629 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep140
140629 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep140 – Nogizaka46 members take a test and we rank the top 17 smartest girls.

Rating:rating-four
It’s a Nogizaka Baka test! Gotta find out who the smartest girl is. Though we all know Ikuta Erika would have won if she participated.

 
140629 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 15 ep10
140629 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 15 ep10 – We’re back with the Three Musketeers as they continue their World Cup practice. This week: use your head!

Rating:rating-three
Three cute girls playing football! It’s always fun to watch these three goof around.

 
140701 AKB de Arubaito ep01
140701 AKB de Arubaito ep01 – In “AKB de Arubaito”, the concept is that AKB48 members work part time jobs; however in this first episode they spend the entire time recruiting cute girls to work with them.

Rating: rating-two
Nothing really happens in this episode. It’s a setup for what I’m hoping will be some crazy shenanigans as the girls have to work REAL jobs.

 
140701 AKBINGO! ep295
140701 AKBINGO! ep295 – Burger Shop time! Members play guessing games with the possibility of being blasted in the face with a fire extinguisher. Everyone’s favorite mom, Tsukamoto Mariko, is still here too!

Rating: rating-four
A great classic segment, and the kusogaki members are out in full force.

 
140702 HKT48 no Odekake! ep74
140702 HKT48 no Odekake! ep74 – HKT members herd cows and take care of horses on a farm.

Rating: rating-three
Yet another variety show with 48G members on a farm. Nothing really new to see here but hey, there’s some pretty funny moments with the girls though.

 
140701 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep01
140701 French Kiss no Kiss-tabi ep01 – “French Kiss no Kiss-tabi” is a new show starring the sub-group French Kiss: Kuromochi Asuka, Kashiwagi Yuki, and Takajo Aki. In this first episode, they go to Singapore and sightsee.

Rating: rating-three
Pretty fun seeing three members that aren’t on variety shows very often just being themselves. I’m interested to see where this show is going.
