140307 NOGIBINGO!2 ep09

Ben Quick gives you his rundown of all of the AKS shows that aired in the past week.

140307 AKB Kousagi Dojo ep63
140307 AKB Kousagi Dojo ep63 – “Road of the Dance Idol: SKE edition” continues with Kinoshita Yukiko, Saito Makiko, Kizaki Yuria, Ishida Anna, and Takeuchi Mai. Unlike last week however, the entire episode is dedicated to our SKE dancing queens showing off their freestyle dance moves.

Rating: rating-three
Certainly check it out if you’ve been following this segment, or have a favorite in the lineup.

140307 NOGIBINGO!2 ep09
140307 NOGIBINGO!2 ep09 – Another fun munekyun episode, where Nogi members confess their love to the anonymous cameraman. Very cute!

Rating: rating-four
Nogi fans don’t wanna miss watching their favorite members flirting with them.

140308 AKB48 SHOW! ep20
140308 AKB48 SHOW! ep20 – Some really fun behind-the-scenes footage from SKE48’s Nagoya Dome concert, provided by Team 4 member Takashima Yurina, and some footage from their current earthquake relief concerts.

Rating: rating-three
Behind-the-scenes stuff can be quite enjoyable, its fun seeing the girls goof around.

140309 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep125
140309 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep125 – Nogizaka’s still in Macau, and this week they eat some even stranger foods. Followed by a segment where they’re surprised early in the morning by hidden cameras.

Rating: rating-three
A bit similar to last week in the first half, but the second half has some pretty cute and funny moments. I nearly peed myself laughing at one point when Nishino Nanase’s eating her food though.

140309 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 14 ep08
140309 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 14 ep08 – After last week’s boring shopping episode, we get Oya Shizuka and Shimada Haruka taking part in an Iron Chef-like cooking battle.

Rating: rating-two
More interesting than last week, but this week’s episode is still pretty poorly paced and filled with too much fish gutting for my tastes.

140311 AKBINGO! ep279
140311 AKBINGO! ep279 – Before, we had majime Okada Nana, now its time for hetare Nishino Miki! Miki, Nana, Mako, Ryoka, Karen and Tano have to sing karaoke while riding on a roller-coaster. Hilarity ensues. A lot of it.

Rating: rating-five
Great episode showcasing some of the newer members. Lots of laughs, and great reactions from Miki as well. Hopefully this will be a series like they had with majime Okada Nana.

140312 HKT48 no Odekake! ep58
140312 HKT48 no Odekake! ep58 – There’s a new single out, and you know what that means? It’s time for the senbatsu to go around town promoting it! These episodes are always my favorite Odekake episodes because it focuses on the girls and not on some location or activity.

Rating: rating-four
It’s HKT48 being HKT48, and that should be enough to get you to watch, right?
