AKS Worth Watching, May 23rd

Another week has come and gone in the world of AKB48 television, let’s see what our favorite girls have been up to!

140517 AKB48 SHOW! ep29

140517 AKB48 SHOW! ep29 – The highlight of this week’s show is the comedy skit where Nakamura Mariko is playing her mother. Team 4, NMB48 and Tani Marika + Nakanishi Chiyori perform.

Monomane-inception occurs when at one point Komari is doing an impression of her mom doing an impression of Kintaro doing an impression of Maeda Atsuko. Wut?

140518 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep134

140518 Nogizaka46 – Nogizakatte Doko ep134 – Matsui Rena sits down with various members of Nogizaka46 as she introduces herself to her new group.

Nothing too exciting here, but if you’re a Rena fan you’ll probably want to check it out.

140518 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 15 ep06

140518 AKB48 Nemousu TV Season 15 ep06 – Shimada Haruka, Takajo Aki, Suzuki Mariya, Yamauchi Suzuran, and Fujie Reina are in Guam and hang out with a couple of local families…including the whitest family I’ve seen in my life.

Awkward English, Mariyannu, surfing and Haruu in a bikini make this worth checking out.

140519 Tentoumu-Chu! no Sekai o Muchu ni Sasemasu Sengen! ep06

140519 Tentoumu-Chu! no Sekai o Muchu ni Sasemasu Sengen! ep06 – Tentoumu-Chu visits a farm and participates in challenges like cow milking and sheep herding.

Rating: rating-four
If you’ve been enjoying this show up until now, you know what to expect…another fun episode!

140520 AKBINGO! ep289

140520 AKBINGO! ep289 – AKB48 members both old and new get together to debate what they do and don’t like about the current state of AKBingo.

Rating: rating-three
This episode is allllll talk but there’s some funny and interesting moments…though it may be best to come back to this one if it gets subtitled if your grasp of Japanese is poor.

140521 HKT48 no Odekake! ep68

140521 HKT48 no Odekake! ep68 – Inspired by a Legend of Zelda quest chain (or rather, a story of a man who started with a red paperclip and eventually traded up to a house), our fearless Hakata girls start with an Odekake pin and try to see how far they can trade up!

Rating: rating-four
One of the more enjoyable episodes of Odekake in awhile…lots of cute moments throughout!
