We have a brand new title sequence for today’s show. It’s round 4 of the Dodgeball Punishment game in this week’s episode and we have 2 teams of six members:
White Team: Yuko, Moeno, Sasshi, Myao, Acchan and Ami Maeda.
Pink Team: Kojima, Akicha, Takamina, Mayu, Kumi Yagami and Ayaka Kikuchi.
The referees on the sidelines are Yukirin and Komori
1st Punishment – Akicha is the first one out after trying to catch a ball but failing to do so. She has to pick up a lizard from it’s tank and hold it close to her whilst Kiyoshi takes a picture of them. She did rather well I thought.
2nd Punishment – Sasshi is out after Komori does a funny turn as one of the referees with her flag. I find Komori to be such an entertaining girl!! Sasshi has to eat a whole peeled lemon. She has some difficulty and is actually gagging whilst eating it!!
3rd Punishment – Takamina is the next to go. Her punishment involves her kneeling on the floor whilst Kiyoshi is wielding a plastic sword above her head. She’s supposed to grab the sword before it hits her head but fails and gets smacked right in the middle of her temple!! Takamina is laughing on the floor after she’s been hit.
4th Punishment – Kojima is gone and she has to eat something that pongs like a stinky pair of socks. What’s the thing she has to eat? Anybody any ideas? She takes a sample and eats it but hates the taste. Yuko looks concerned from the sidelines!
5th Punishment – Mayu is eliminated and she has to have her face painted. She’s not too keen at all and looks like she’s crying! I have no idea the character they painted her face to look like.
6th Punishment – Moeno who hasn’t looked happy at all in this game is made to be even more unhappy after being the next to face the axe. Her punishment is a face imprint. Her face gets painted in ink and then she has to drop her face into a cloth so that the imprint of her face comes out on the cloth.
7th Punishment – SKE member Kumi Yagami has to endure the worst punishment of the day in my opinion after being the next one to be eliminated. She has to eat an omelette which is filled with ant larvae. It looks totally disgusting but fair play to Kuumin she did extremely well. I don’t think I would have eaten the damn thing.
8th Punishment – Electric shock via a vandegraph generator. Acchan is out. Considering that Erepyon yelped like crazy in this punishment the last time, Acchan did much better than her.
At the end of the game the winners with 3 members remaining are the White Team with Mayu taking the overall MVP award.
Next up is Phrasemuseum between Yukirin and Sumire Sato. Sato wins.
There’s a live performance of Ponytail to Shushu before the show gets ready to wrap for another week but not before an announcement about the senbatsu election and a plug on the AKBingo book.
Next week’s show has 2 very special guests – the Kameda brothers who are boxers. I’ve never heard of them!
