Your weekly analysis of AKS programming, brought to you by Ben Quick.
140426 AKB48 SHOW! ep27 – This week, we have an SKE sketch that is basically a rehash of a previous sketch and the return of the English AKB professor segment. The highlights of this episode are the performances: NMB opens up with “Seishun no Lap Time”, HKT48’s Matsuoka Natsumi and Moriyasu Madoka with “Temodemo no Namida” and then SKE’s Kitagawa Ryoha and Orito Aisa doing “Ookami to Pride”.
The variety of performances save this week’s episode.
140427 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep132 – Everyone’s favorite creep, Iijiri-san invades Nogizaka’s hotel rooms and pokes around before waking them up in the middle of the night.
I’m a fan of the neoki dokkiri and Iijri-san in general, so I enjoyed watching him mess with the girls.
140427 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 15 ep03 – This week we get introduced to 6 of AKB48’s draft members, and boy are they loud, full of energy and SUPER CUTE. 2 draft girls from each team introduce themselves to Iijiri-san in what is his second appearance this week. It is the objective opinion of this reviewer that Team K certainly has the cutest draftees, but don’t take my word for it, watch it yourself!
If you’re curious about the new draft members, don’t miss this week’s Nemousu!
140428 Tentoumu-Chu! no Sekai o Muchu ni Sasemasu Sengen! ep03 – In the latest episode of everyone’s new favorite idol show, our favorite new girls have to undergo certain athletic challenges…with a bit of extra “motivation” to help them break their personal records.
I haven’t laughed this hard in a looooong time, don’t miss it!
140429 AKBINGO! ep286 – AKB48’s best-selling sister group, Nogizaka46 invades AKBingo this week to compete with Team K in various challenges! Iijiri-san shows up for a THIRD time this week!
Nogizaka46? Team K? Heck yeah, I’m there!
140430 HKT48 no Odekake! ep65 – The girls go to an anime studio and take part in the creation of a CG show.
Nothing too exciting here, to be honest.
