AKS Worth Watching, November 30th

It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you (left you), without dope idol shows to step to. After a bit of a break, we’re back, rounding up the week in 48 group TV!

HKT48 no Goboten ! #26 (2014-11-22)
141122 HKT48 no Goboten! ep26 – Miyawaki Sakura and Yamamoto Mao visit some cool high-tech clubs at a school, and in the studio, the “Gobozon” segment returns where we look at weird and wacky products from America.

Rating: rating-four
There’s some really fun moments at the school, but the “Gobozon” segment here is great. Lots of really funny moments.

141123 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep161
141123 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep161 – Nogizaka members share some interesting facts we may not know about other members.

Rating: rating-three
Pretty talk-heavy, but Ikuta Erika’s segment is hilarious no matter how much Japanese you know.

141125 AKBINGO ep316
141125 AKBINGO ep316 – Several members are split into two teams and answer trivia questions. A member on the losing team has to undergo a penalty game.

Rating: rating-four
Basically an excuse for penalty games, which is fine by me. Nothing provokes great idol reactions like a good penalty game.

141126 HKT48 no Odekake! ep93
141126 HKT48 no Odekake! ep93 – 3rd generation member Yamashita Emili makes her Odekake debut as we visit a farm.

Rating: rating-three
I really enjoyed this episode, despite being a bit tired of idols on farms. But that may be because I’m biased towards this lineup.

HKT Shakariki48 ! #21 (2014-11-21)
141121 HKT Shakariki48! ep21 – Matsuoka Natsumi spends the day working as a tour bus guide, pointing out landmarks to tourists in Fukuoka.

Rating: rating-four
One of the best episodes of Shakariki in quite awhile. There’s quite a bit of drama and tears as Natsumi struggles with her job.

141122 AKB48 SHOW! ep51
141122 AKB48 SHOW! ep51 – This week’s show is a recap clip-show of the best moments of SKE48 on AKB48 Show.

Rating: rating-two
If you’ve been watching AKB48 Show then you have no real reason to watch this as its all old material, but if you’re an SKE fan and haven’t been following this show, it’s a chance to catch up on some old performances at least.

141123 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 17 ep03
141123 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 17 ep03 – Team 8 members compete in various challenges, including bungee jumping and mental tests, to try to earn having LINE stamps made of them.

Rating: rating-three
This is a pretty fun episode, even if you don’t follow Team 8 at all. The test they go through is fun, and idols bungee jumping is good for a laugh.

141124 NOGIBINGO!3 ep08
141124 NOGIBINGO!3 ep08 – Several members confess their love to imaginary boys in cute romantic skits.

Rating: rating-four
If you want to have your heart stolen by cute idols, then you can’t miss this episode!

141126 AKB Shirabe ep07
141126 AKB Shirabe ep07 – Miyamae Ami, the member who ranked 3rd in the earlier “best boobs” poll who’d never done gravure before, is now SKE’s co-center, so this week Shirabe documents her first bikini gravure shoot.

Rating: rating-three
Watch a young girl lose her innocence as she sacrifices her own personal morals for the success of her group.
