AKS Worth Watching, October 19th

Back after a bit of a break while I was in New York City to see Morning Musume ’14. We have some new shows to look into this week, let’s see if they’re worth watching!

141011 HKT48 no Goboten ep20
141011 HKT48 no Goboten ep20 – Akiyoshi Yuka and Tomonaga Mio go to a school, and check out various clubs like the fencing club and the music club, but the highlight is when various attractive dudes “kabedon” (see above) Akiyoshi.

Rating: rating-three
Seeing these old guys kabedon a 13 year old sure is…something, alright.

141012 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep155
141012 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep155 – Nogizaka’s senbatsu members split up into 3 teams to take photographs at various tourist spots.

Rating: rating-three
Fun to watch them goof around, and also contains one of my favorite things: idols on roller coasters.

141014 AKBINGO ep310
141014 AKBINGO ep310 – The dodgeball continues! Two teams go head-to-head in dodgeball and when a member gets hit they have to go through a punishment game!

Rating: rating-four
Yet another fun dodgeball episode. There’s some really great Shimazaki Haruka moments this week as well as great Nishino Miki reactions.

141015 HKT48 no Odekake! ep87
141015 HKT48 no Odekake! ep87 – Anai Chihiro leads a team of members as they go bowling. Will Komada Hiroka, who worked in a bowling alley for a day, show off some pro-level skills?

Rating: rating-four
So much drama coming from a simple round of bowling!

141014 AKB de Arubaito ep13
141014 AKB de Arubaito ep13 – Minegishi Minami and Nishino Miki go undercover at a hot springs to find more potential part-time candidates.

Rating: rating-three
If you’re a fan of Nishino Miki and her goofball antics, don’t miss this episode!

141015 AKB Shirabe ep01
141015 AKB Shirabe ep01 – AKB Shirabe is a new show taking the place of Renai Sousenkyou that ended earlier in the month. In this debut episode, various members are asked to rate their favorite boobs in 48G.

Rating: rating-four
30 minutes of boob-talk should be all you need to know to decide if you want to watch this or not.

141011 SKE48 Ebi Calcio ep01
141011 SKE48 Ebi Calcio ep01 – Ebisho may be over, but we have another new show to take its place! To start things off we have quite a show here this week. 5 members dress up as guys, for the most part very convincingly so, and have to go out on the street and try to pick up random women walking by.

Rating: rating-four
The girls look hilarious in their danso clothing and makeup, and the tactics they choose to try to pick up women can be quite interesting to say the least.

141011 AKB48 SHOW! ep45
141011 AKB48 SHOW! ep45 – This week’s episode is pretty diverse. Starting with a performance of “”Party ga Hajimaru yo” by Team 8, we have a skit by some HKT members and then some behind-the-scenes footage from this year’s AKB Natsu Matsuri, including some highlights from the “worst singer” competition.

Rating: rating-three
Being able to see some of the Natsu Matsuri stuff makes this worth tuning in if you’re curious.
