AKBINGO! Air Date: 5/9/2017
Finally, we get to see idols as news presenters again. Unfortunately, this time they did not do much more than just presented themselves. Hopefully they’re saving the main action for next time.
This time, AKB48 members tried out themselves as news presenters. Shibata Aya and Nakamura Mariko are currently working on news programs and other group members also did this in the past, so this time we have more girls trying this interesting role.
Baba Noriko, professional anchor from 日テレ joined the show to rate girl’s performances.
One by one, ten AKB48 members go out in front of the camera. All of them wearing moderate clothes, they tried to mimic that classic Japanese newscaster appeal while introducing themselves.
Of course, it was quite funny and a refreshing theme for the show, but sadly this time no one got blown up by a giant fan or read ridiculous soccer commentary. All they do is just briefly present themselves.
Only Oguri Yui and Taniguchi Megu try to interview a bunch of young soccer fans. Sure it was good but looks like they saved the best stuff for the next show. Guess we’ll have to tune in again next week.
The show also includes PV for “Negaigoto no Mochigusare“, main song from AKB48’s latest single.
