As we all recover from this year’s election results, let’s unwind with some idol TV! It’s time for AKS Worth Watching, where we run down the week’s best television offerings from Japan’s biggest idol empire!
140607 HKT48 no Goboten ep03 – Ueki Nao and Sakaguchi Riko visit a school, hang out with the students and study English.
Pretty fun and funny, especially the unintentional love confession.
140608 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep137 – Various members’ mothers write in to talk about their daughters and their talents, which are then demonstrated on camera.
Pretty cute and fun. A really cute concept for showing off the girls.
140609 Tentoumu-Chu! no Sekai o Muchu ni Sasemasu Sengen! ep09 – In this week’s episode, TTMC perform various comedic stage tricks for an audience of older folks.
Typical great episode of this show. Really funny, great reactions, really cute moments…if you’re not watching this show every week I don’t know what’s wrong with you!
140610 AKBINGO! ep292 – A great lineup that includes new-gen girls, senbatsu girls and the Otona AKB48 mom is there too. The entire episode is basically several rounds of punishment games.
Now THIS is the AKBingo I remember watching when I first became an AKB48 fan, they’ve returned to their crazy variety roots. The best AKBingo episode in a very long time! Why are you still reading this? Go watch it!
140611 HKT48 no Odekake! ep71 – Two teams of girls ride roller-coasters with a GoPro camera. There’s a competition involved but really we’re here for the screaming idols, right?
“Idols on rollercoaster” really should tell you all you need to know, right?
