This episode was semi-interesting. The theme was for guys to improve their dating skills.
I say it’s interesting because I’ve read a pretty cool book (and more) on the whole thing. Of course one of the problems with that book is that people used it more for techniques without understanding the theory. For example, the “neg” is kind of a diss when you make fun of a girl for something. Like, “Nice nails, are they fake?” And what it’s supposed to do is that it’s supposed to make you unintimidated and decrease their value.
The problem is, guys and girls were like “Hurhur just insult the girl awkwardly,” and the girls were like “WTF don’t talk shit about me” and it became a blazing hot topic.
Honestly, all it is is being playful and showing that you’re not so uptight. Just like how guys joke around. But people didn’t do it right and it was all messed up.
“Did you know there’s a school where guys train to be cool?”
…not what I had in mind.
More importantly, they had some Yoshimoto comedian go on a date and they would rank him. I’m not sure if he was serious though. Some of the stuff he was doing just absolutely blew my mind.
Don’t ask too many questions. What you should do is make guesses in the form of statements. Or talk about what they responded to. This ain’t an interview.
Look how legit happy they are. Surely some of the stuff he was doing has to be a joke.
The dude actually tried to eat her ice cream cone in a really disgusting way. Also when the date ended, he gave her a coupon for some Yoshimoto goods and asked for a kiss. Like… I don’t even know. It was so weird. The guy seemed like a legit nice and funny guy too.
Oh yeah. Remember NMB48? Hey look here’s some 3rd gens, Shuu and Uuka. I feel like it sounds like baby talk.
There was also a small quiz where they had to guess a few things. I think the first one is, “What’s the best reaction when the girl says she’s late?” I forget what the right answer was.
Remember how I was talking about Milky’s aura in the last entry? Well, the girl giving the interview also had this really sexy aura even though she looked a bit plain. It was hot. That’s probably why I don’t remember the answer.
We also get sidetracked because some dudes go out to eat. And man. Why does Japanese TV make everything look so appetizing?!
Like this ramen. It’s called Mt. Fuji ramen and it was like mega thick and fatty. My favorite kind of ramen. Man, I want ramen.
They also made this marshmallow monjayaki. It basically looked like smores made on a griddle. Looked insanely good.
Give it to the new kids! And hey, Kinoshita Haruna is back!
We conclude the quiz with some strange questions… and even stranger reactions.
I don’t know what he was doing and how it even related to the question. Kanakichi with the II REACTION.
Uh… when I think about it, this episode was pretty sparse on everything. I can’t even sidetrack well with The Game. And NMB was pretty low-key this time. Hmm…
