AKBINGO! Air Date: 5/16/2017
The AKB48 news presenter challenge, part two. Some bits were better than the others, but the whole show is quite good.
Once again, idols had to find out who could be the best newscaster. Last time the girls presented themselves, now it’s time for actual challenges. Their target is simply to maintain that professional, composed look during some unusual situations.
Kojima Mako, Izuta Rina, Iriyama Anna and Oguri Yui read news line and had a short exchange with Matsumoto who acted as their co-host.
And later, they had a remote broadcast from outside. Okada Nana, Ota Nao, Komiyama Haruka, Takahashi Juri and Kojima Mako were interviewing various people.
Those characters were trying to make it really challenging for the girls, so they were mostly failing at the job, by making some silly lines on the go. Naturally, this mess makes for a good show.
You can also get a first look at several short PV previews of the songs from latest AKB48 single “Negaigoto no Mochigusare” at the end of the show.
