AKS Worth Watching, Apr 4th

140330 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep128

Ben Quick is back after a bit of a hiatus, so here’s what’s going on in the world of 48-group TV currently.

140328 AKB Kousagi Dojo ep66 (final)
140328 AKB Kousagi Dojo ep66 (final) – It’s the very last episode of Kousagi Doko, so what do we get? A bunch of small clips from past episodes!

Rating: rating-one
Clip shows! Zzzzzzzzzzzz

140328 NOGIBINGO!2 ep12
140328 NOGIBINGO!2 ep12 – Various members read a heartfelt letter they wrote to another member, and then sing a song to them. Lots of tears follow.

Rating: rating-two
Slow-paced and…awkward. I felt like I was intruding on a private moment between two people.

140329 AKB48 SHOW! ep23
140329 AKB48 SHOW! ep23 – This 45 minute special was broadcast live right after their live concert at the National Olympic Stadium. 9th gen introduces various clips from the concert, and give their thoughts. Partway through the episode, midnight strikes and Paruru turns 20!

Rating: rating-three
The first clips of the concert can be found here. Plus, sleepy Paruru is really cute to watch.

140330 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep128
140330 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep128 – Nishino Nanase special! Interviews and some behind-the-scenes clips of the newest Nogizaka center, Nishino Nanase!

Rating: rating-two
If you’re a huge Nanase fan you may be interested, otherwise its a bunch of long boring talk.

140330 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 14 ep11 (final)
140330 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 14 ep11 (final) – Our hand senbatsu that was picked over the last couple of episodes (Lemon, Tano, Wasamin, Izurina, Wakanyan, and Hirari) participate in a couple of photoshoots to determine who has the best hands in AKB48 in the season finale of Nemousu.

Rating: rating-two
If you like hands, you don’t wanna miss this episode?

140401 AKBINGO! ep282
140401 AKBINGO! ep282 – Oh boy, another clip show! This one has an interview with Oshima Yuko and features clips of classic AKBingo moments featuring the soon-to-be-graduated member.

Rating: rating-two
It’s a clip show…but at least it features more interesting clips than Kousagi Dojo did.

140402 HKT48 no Odekake! ep61
140402 HKT48 no Odekake! ep61 – Our favorite Hakata girls go apartment hunting for some reason. Nothing too exciting.

Rating: rating-two
Even my love for all things HKT can’t save this one.
