Let’s see if I can get back in the swing of things. I’ve been playing way too much League of Legends and my Japanese ability has slipped accordingly. I have to get back into this. (Clearing 700+ cards in Anki on the flight back was hell.)
This episode is about plastic surgery. I didn’t watch the previous episodes so I’m not sure if it was a continuation or not, but they invited 3 beauty clinic people to visit.
The first question they asked was if anyone was interested in breast enlargement surgery.The girl on the far left says her clinic specializes in boobs and “down there.” Wait, what? People actually get plastic surgery for that stuff? Man, by the time the guy gets there, it’s already over. I don’t think any guy would be like, “Oh crap, I was gonna have sex with you, but it’s not that cute down there. Sorry.”
We also see one of the most awkward things I’ve ever seen, as they put silicone breasts on one of the dudes and start feeling him up.Following that, we experience a day in the life of the head of one of the clinic. Dude is decked out in all Fendi furniture. I don’t even know what that is. And maybe it’s just me being pragmatic, but if you’re working in Japan you don’t even have time to go home to enjoy your furniture. I think he spends $400+ on an afterparty or something with the nurses. Sounds sooo professional.
A part of me is jealous that they have so much money to spend on girls. The other part thinks its a waste of money. I am so conflicted, lol.
We get into quiz time. Winner of the quiz gets a free coupon for some cosmetic surgery. They have to guess the number 1 guy and girl who are often requested to look like.
I knew #1 girl was Itano Tomomi, but I forgot why. I think I remember hearing that her face was the easiest to replicated. As for the #1 guy…Hyde is so scary. I remember seeing the music video of Devil Side for his other band, Vamps. Two things surprised me: I later found out that the song was in all-English (I honestly could NOT tell) and that the majority of the comments from Japanese and non-Japanese were saying that Hyde was prettier than the half-naked girls in the video. Hmm… Some other stunning facts were revealed. Some kids that are like, 6, 7 years old have gotten cosmetic treatment. (!!!) What the hell is wrong with the parents?! You can interpret that in different ways but I mean… wow. Who would pay for that stuff? It might even screw them up when they’re older. For the last game they had to guess which of the four girls got surgery, and for what. If they got it right, they got a point and a hug. If they got it wrong, they get slapped. The correct answer was #4! I thought something looked strange about her. It was her or #1, I thought, but I went with #4. And what happened to #4? Well, you can tell when she started speaking… And thus concludes a strange episode of Docking 48…
