I hope you guys like farming.
If you like chemistry, I’d suggest watching this. You get to see Shu-chan and Yuki just berate the hell out of Ayaka.
I actually like Ayaka’s character now, though it sometimes comes off as a little try-hard. The MC I saw of her at the concert was pretty terrible, so she definitely needs to work on her consistency.
For whatever reason, Yuki wanted to do some farming, and Shu wants to ride in a harvester, so they decided to combine their plans and thus we have this program.
And Ayaka hops along for the ride even though she wanted to go to an onsen.
So off we go to a farm to harvest rice.
One thing I liked about Osaka is that people are tacky, but they strut it with attitude! When I saw Ayaka’s towel I laughed on the inside. You see those kinds of in-your-face fashion, whereas Tokyo is more reserved. Unless you go to Harajuku, but that’s another story altogether.
By the way, if you ever go Japan, please try and fit an inaka (country town) into your schedule. I really love the casual laid-back atmosphere there and it’s really unique to Japan. The only problem is, they’re usually hard to get around since it’s spread out, trains aren’t as convenient. Okay, that’s not the only problem, there’s also usually not much to do. But still, I like being there, and it’s worth spending a little bit of time on your vacation to see what it’s like.
It’s actually really cool that these two enjoy farming. At least, I hope they do and they’re not just acting. So much of Japan is centralized into the big cities.
After harvesting by hand, they finally bring out the automatic harvester.
After Shu-chan and Yuki ride, they make Ayaka earn her ride by doing one-shot gags since she techinically didn’t want to go on the trip in the first place (she wanted to go to an onsen).
Her gags were awful.
Let us never speak of them again.
Once they’re done harvesting, it’s off to mill the rice.
I still think it’s really cool that they have rice hullers. Coin operated ones! It’s almost as nutty as the 24-hour rice vending machine/stand thing that I saw.
Apparently there’s a second episode of this, so let’s see if they keep making fun of Ayaka.
