AKS Worth Watching, June 27th

Now that we have a very short break from football, it’s a great time to catch up with our favorite 48G idols. Let’s have a look at what aired this week!

140621 HKT48 no Goboten ep05
140621 HKT48 no Goboten ep05 – Kodama Haruka and Yamada Marina visit a place that makes bubbles and bubble-making toys. Mariri shows off her calligraphy skills and Haruppi shows off her lisp.

Pretty fun and cute episode. I knew calligraphy was one of Mariri’s talents but never got to see it until now.

140622 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep139
140622 Nogizakatte Doko ep139 – It’s show and tell day at the school of Nogizaka46. Members come to the front of the class and talk about something they love and enjoy.

Obviously your enjoyment of talk-heavy segments relies on your knowledge of Japanese. If you’re like me and only know a smattering of Japanese, you’ll probably want to wait until this one gets subtitled somewhere.

140622 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 15 ep09
140622 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 15 ep09 – Our beloved Three Musketeers – Okada Nana, Kojima Mako and Nishino Miki get some soccer practice in to celebrate the World Cup!

I may be biased but I love to watch anything featuring these three. If they were in Japan’s team this year maybe they would have done better in the group stage?

140623 Tentoumu-Chu! no Sekai o Muchu ni Sasemasu Sengen! ep11
140623 Tentoumu-Chu! no Sekai o Muchu ni Sasemasu Sengen! ep11 – Full lineup again this week! The girls of TTMC dress up in animal mascot costumes and compete against each other for the love and attention of a ton of tiny little kids.

This episode had me laughing so much in parts. There’s something about the way they show expressionless mascot heads in the little picture-in-picture in the corner that gets to me.

140624 AKBINGO! ep294
140624 AKBINGO! ep294 – The danso continues! More members dressing up as guys and confessing their love for another member.

Rating: rating-four
Danso isn’t really my cup of tea but this episode is just so ridiculous it shouldn’t be missed.

140625 HKT48 no Odekake! ep73
140625 HKT48 no Odekake! ep73 – It’s Gotou-san’s birthday, so HKT48 splits up into 3 teams to buy him presents!

Rating: rating-four
A very strong, entertaining episode. Yabuki Nako and Tanaka Miku are featured this week and they’re just too cute and fun together!
