AKBINGO! Air Date: 5/23/2017
Celebrities visit AKBINGO! to choose a new friend from AKB48 members. This is the fourth show like that, so it starts to feel kinda dull. But might be alright if you haven’t seen previous episodes.
If you haven’t seen it the previous several times, the premise of the show is pretty simple. Some famous guest visit AKBINGO! to meet group members and to choose one girl as a new friend.
To freshen things up a bit, this time they’ve been visited by Kyoko Hamaguchi, a professional wrestler with multiple world champion titles and Olympic medals.
She seems to be very cheerful but also a little shy so no one gets rejected. Plus they reversed the way she chooses a friend for herself. Instead of naming something that she wouldn’t tolerate, she gave just three things she likes: girls with lots of cute things, those who are good at taking photos, and someone with whom she could talk about love and relationships.
Group members did everything right and there are enough funny bits to fill the show with usual positive energy but now they don’t have to justify their bad behavior the tension is not as high.
A mixed, half Kenkyuusei lineup performed Negaigoto no Mochigusare in the studio.
