Last week’s Docking and
Kagai Jugyou Teens Hakusho were slow to get uploaded so I had nothing to write about. But they had an MJ appearance that was uploaded so I can write about something! Hurrah!
This episode is kinda cool because they go to the NMB theatre and do random gourmet reports. And by they, I mean Fuuchan and Kimoshita. Great for them to get on TV. I love the Team N Top 5 but I also like seeing good people get some time.
First we have Kimoshita showing us around the theatre. For being the weirdest and nuttiest person ever on G+ and on her blog, she’s surprisingly mature and calm for soloing this.
She’s still disappointed that her grafitti on the wall is tiny.
Pointing out the wetspot on the theatre because of the sweat. Yuck.
We then head on a trip to some takoyaki place in what I think is Shinsaibashi, the famous shopping arcade of Osaka near Namba. I think. Of course, saying “some takoyaki place” is like saying “some hamburger place” in LA. Fuuchan likes it so much that she said she just went there for lunch and is still coming back. Apparently they have a version that is without sauce and uses salt? That’s pretty crazy, I’d love to try it. I really need to go check out Osaka again. Preferably without the food poisoning that I had the first time I visited.
He flips the Takoyaki right quick. So skilled. Not like me, mine come out funny.
Fuuchan warns Kimoshita not to burn her tongue. After she burned her tongue.
I thought Fuuchan was really……. cliched, I guess. She kept screaming (purring?) “Oishii!” “Umai!” after like everything that happened. They put some mayo on. “Oishii!” She takes a bite “Oishii!” She asks for her Takoyaki without nori, “Oishii!” It actually underscores the need for those Yoshimoto pros on Docking to really bring out their personalities.
After Takoyaki is some place that had like a beef soup.
This place is apparently famous with Yoshimoto entertainers. I even found some random Japanese guy’s blog on it!
Anyway, they order the beef soup. Kimoshita also gets some TMK,
TaMura Kenji tamago kakete, rice with raw egg and soy sauce. Man. Eggs in Japan are amazing. They must raise their chickens properly because raw egg is eaten a lot with no fear of salmonella. They’re also noticeably darker and probably more fresh.
You might die if you ate this in the US.
“Eggs are justice.” This is a bit different from the 2ch crowd after Nagiichi was released. They said “Boobs are justice.”
They go to Yoshimoto and they find Jinnai and ask him about it. He says it’s so famous that all the Yoshimoto guys will go right quick if someone calls them from the lobby. Jinnai also asks them about the new single and how they like it but they’re like… “We’re in the back.”
They might be in the back but I really can’t get that image of Fuuchan’s ripped abs out of my head. Looks much better than the usual super skinny Japanese woman that looks like they’re starving.
I *think* Jinnai was suggesting that they just rotate the center. Yeah, how about that? I usually don’t really care about the center position but I forgot to think of it in terms of the performers, because they were saying “It’s nice to see everyone smile from the front.”
Damn you Dictionary of Japanese Grammar! You failed to help me here!
Since they’re in the back the announcer reminds us before the performance to look out for them. There were two subs (Aya-nyan and Keila, I think they subbed for Ainyan and Nana.)
They even got little call outs on screen!
Fuuchan has to carry Milky’s legs. A thankless job.
It was a pretty cool performance. In particular that one move where they bend over and walk their fingers down their legs, that move is SUPER hot. I also think Milky is looking better and better. Maybe because they gave her the skimpiest swimsuit in Nagiichi.
I’m also slightly bummed because I got the NMB48 version only of Music Japan. Apparently the segment before this was an AAA (Attack All Around) segment. They’re one of my favorite groups, if only because they were the first group I decided to listen to when I decided to go Japanese-only when it comes to music. Also Uno Misako is SUPER HOT.
