New NSK Feature: Idol Digests

2011 has brought upon us idol fans an avalanche of weekly shows and appearances. While in years past it was fairly easy to consume everything that came out, nowadays we often times found ourselves recommending episodes and shows to each other because it was practically impossible to follow everything.

So for the past two weeks or so, you may have seen a number of posts in NSK labeled “Idol Digest”, talking about a variety of different television shows. These posts serve to specifically highlight episodes that we found particularly entertaining throughout the week. So if you see a digest, see it as an episode that has our high recommendation, and check it out if you haven’t seen it yet!

  1. I have a question regarding this feature. Will you also be linking to subtitles as well? These shows are quite entertaining without them but I’d like to know what these girls are saying. I have been having a hard time finding subs to even really old episodes and I wonder if I am just looking in the wrong places.

    • The majority of episodes covered probably won’t have subtitles, at least not for a while. The subbing group SUB48 has the most accessible subs for AKB related episodes, and Nihongogo has the first 100 episodes of AKBINGO if you sign up and participate in the forum. If subs are for the episodes covered, they’ll be linked on the post for sure.

  2. Indeed, the amount of content is overwhelming. I would have never known about naruhodo high school or itte koi 48 if I hadn’t seen these posts or watched the broadcasts.

  3. Thanks for doing this guys, it’a a really good idea!
