AKS Worth Watching, December 8th

There’s some amazing idol television to watch this week, so make sure to read on to see what to see what was worth watching!

Garry: This should have gone up days ago but I’ve been sick. Hopefully that’s enough of an excuse for people not to get mad at me.

HKT48 no Goboten ! #27 (2014-11-29)
141129 HKT48 no Goboten! ep27 – Motomura Aoi and Moriyasu Madoka visit a school, visit an art class, talk with pretty baseball players, and cook some interesting food. Back in the studio, it’s quiz time!

Rating: rating-three
There’s some fun moments with Aoi and Madoka when they’re cooking but otherwise nothing too special here.

141130 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep162
141130 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep162 – Continuing from last week where members shared interesting facts about each other.

Rating: rating-three
Pretty much the same as last week, but check it out if you wanna see Saito Chiharu goofing off.

141202 AKBINGO ep317
141202 AKBINGO ep317 – A new segment this week! Okada Nana, Iwata Karen, Hirata Rina, and Nakanishi Chiyori team up with comedians to write songs about themselves.

Rating: rating-five
My favorite episode of AKBingo this year, if just for Karen’s song alone. Do yourself a favor and watch this, and if your Japanese is poor, well, check out a translation such as this one.

141203 HKT48 no Odekake! ep94
141203 HKT48 no Odekake! ep94 – We’re back on the farm as our girls process the rice they harvested and turn it into delicious treats.

Rating: rating-three
Actually a fairly fun episode, it’s great to see Murashige Anna back in action and acting like…well…Murashige.

141201 NOGIBINGO!3 ep09
141201 NOGIBINGO!3 ep09 – Cooking battle! Three teams of three members each duke it out to make the best meal with AKB veteran and new mom Ohori Megumi as a special guest judge!

Rating: rating-five
Ikuta Erika is well-known for her terrible cooking skills, and she’s on a team here so that alone is worth watching. Best episode of the season so far.

141129 SKE48 Ebi Calcio ep08
141129 SKE48 Ebi Calcio ep08 – This week’s challenge is based on endurance! 5 members compete in a series of non-stop exercise routines to see who can keep going the longest.

Rating: rating-four
Watching these cheerful, energetic girls slowly succumb to exhaustion while getting frustrated and angry at each new person that comes in to give them a new workout makes for quite an entertaining episode.

141203 AKB Shirabe ep08
141203 AKB Shirabe ep08 – This week, we see who has the best legs in the 48 group as voted on by the members themselves.

Rating: rating-three
Well, if you wanna see legs and hear girls talk about legs you’ve come to the right place! This episode is exactly what it seems like.

HKT Shakariki48 ! #22 (2014-11-28)
141128 HKT Shakariki48! ep22 – This week, Tomiyoshi Asuka spends the day working for the Japanese postal service.

Rating: rating-three
Asuka’s struggles and her interactions with others are quite entertaining, despite being fairly similar work to what Imada Mina did a few weeks ago.

141129 AKB48 SHOW! ep52
141129 AKB48 SHOW! ep52 – We open this week’s episode with a performance of “Kibouteki Refrain”, which is then followed by a great comedy skit featuring Kinoshita Momoka as a sentai fighter, and we get to see behind the scenes of shooting the Kibouteki Refrain music video.

Rating: rating-two
If you’re a fan of Momoka, you’ll get a kick out of the skit, but otherwise, just more performances and behind-the-scenes stuff.

141130 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 17 ep04
141130 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 17 ep04 – The competition for Team 8’s line stamp continues! This week, we have fitness challenges as well as a popularity contest involving very small children.

Rating: rating-three
Team 8 fans won’t want to miss this for sure, but if you’re not interested in Team 8, you can skip this one.
