A mother(Hirajima Natsumi) asks the doctor(Iriyama Anna) for her daughter’s diagnosis. The doctor tells the mother that her daughter suffers from Young Comedian Syndrome. The people who suffer from Young Comedian Syndrome take a, “no” as as a, “yes” to create comedy. The doctor then pours habanero sauce all over a hot dog.
The daughter(Ichikawa Miori) comes in asking if they were done yet with their talk. The daughter immediately sees the hot dog. The mother tells her daughter to not eat the hot dog.

The first rule is to show off your muscles while you squeeze a grapefruit for a grapefruit sour drink.
The second rule is that when you are handing out salad for everyone, give all the tomatoes to the girl you’re trying to get.

“Doubtful Minded Warrior: Honmayan 2”
Two girls are being attacked by two monsters. Honmayan(Yokoyama Yui) enters slowly via a underground elevator.
The two girls proceed to tell Honmayan that there are two monsters attacking them. Honmayan does not believe them but then turns around to see the monsters and says her catch phrase, “honmayan”. “Honmayan” is “hontouda” in a kansai-dialect and can be translated to something like, “you’re right”.
The two girls asks Honmayan to call her friend, Honmayan Blue. Honmayan doubts the notion that she has a friend. Honmayan then asks the girls if they are planning on making a mockery of Honmayan as she calls for Honmayan Blue. Honmayan eventually believes them and calls out for Honmayan Blue.
Honmayan Blue(Komori Mika) appears.
Blue suggests that they team up and fight the monsters. Honmayan does not believe Blue and asks if Blue was actually an enemy. Honmayan’s reluctance to join forces gets Blue beaten.
The girls ask Honmayan to use “Honmayan Thunderbolt”, which defeats the monsters.
Honmayan then presses a button on her belt. Honmayan then wonders why her belt was flashing. The girls tell Honmayan that if Honmayan does not return to her home planet, she will die. Honmayan does not believe this and ends up incapacitated. Then the skit ends with Honmayan saying, “honmayan”.
This week’s episode was a little disappointing compared to last week but still overall funny. Akimoto Sayaka, Masuda Yuka, and Yokoyama Yui definitely makes the show watchable with their comedic timing and having a good attitude towards making a fool of yourself from time to time. As I said last week, the biggest concern for me is how they create their comedy. They still seem to take one concept and repeat it to create comedy. I hope the show’s writing improves with the acting. This face that Harugon makes is hilarious.
This picture of Miyazaki Miho is the reason why she needs more screen time on pretty much everything.
