AKBingo 19th May Summary

21 05 2010

This week’s episode is the AKBingo staff pulling pranks and targeting 2 of the members to film their reactions!

In the studio, Sata and Kiyoshi preside over 3 teams of 3 members who have to guess what each of the two girls will do when confronted with the situation they’re about to encounter.

The 3 teams are:

Miichan, Acchan, Tomochin

Sae, Mariko, Mayuyu

Sayaka, Kojima, Kiyoshi

Prank 1 – Yukirin is the girl that’s being targeted for this prank which is great seeing as she’s the Reaction Queen. It’ll be interesting what she does in this situation. A dressing room backstage at the AKBingo studios has been set up with various hidden cameras placed strategically to capture all angles. Yuko Oshima is in on the prank when she enters with Yukirin and Kitarie. Yuko is making it rather obvious she’s aware of the cameras as she starts pulling some funny faces!! The AD comes into the room to explain something to the 3 girls. As I didn’t fully understand what was going on maybe somebody can fill me in. There’s a farting noise heard which gets no reaction from Yukirin. She’s keeping it really professional here. As she’s explaining something to everybody, the AD pretends to yawn and fall asleep – looking bored listening to Yukirin. She cottons on that he’s sleeping and says something to wake him up. He gets up to leave the room and Yukirin I thinks complains a little bit. Sata then enters the room to tell Yukirin it was a set-up. Yukirin looks shocked but I think she did rather well in the situation.

Prank 2 – The target this time is Takamina. Same dressing room, different situation involving a guitar. Yuko is back again to help pull this prank. Takamina and Akicha enter the room. I think the situation was that Takamina gets to play a guitar in a fake scenario. The AD and his assistant bring in a white guitar on a stand and then leave the room. Curious Yuko then decides to take a further look at the guitar and plays about with it but she drops it on a table in which the neck of the guitar breaks!! Takamina and Akicha’s reaction are priceless. At first Takamina laughs off the damage especially when Yuko starts to fix the guitar by sellotaping the neck onto the rest of the guitar and placing it back on the stand. You can see the stress is starting to take it’s toll on Takamina and she’s beginning to crumble. The AD and his assistant come back into the room with the girls acting all innocent and sitting down. Then the AD goes to pick the guitar up and the neck breaks. The girls are asked to explain with Yuko putting the blame squarely on Takamina!! Fair play to Takamina for not saying anything back. What a star!! You can see tears start to form in her eyes, her face is beginning to contort and it’s only a matter of time before she starts to cry which she does. Sata then comes in the room and breaks the news that it’s a joke which only makes Takamina cry some more……and Akicha is crying too!!

This was an awesome segment. Yuko was superb and is a great actress. Both girls that were set-up were pretty cool especially Takamina for taking a hit for the team. Respect to her!

After the main segment, we get to see a small clip of the Kagome vegetable CM and then it’s a fantastic live performance of their new single Ponytail to Shushu in the studio. I love the white uniform they’ve got. And that about wraps up this episode!

Next week: Dodgeball Punishment Round 4 – Acchan gets shocked!!!

I actually saw it on Youtube. Each week’s episode is usually posted a day or two after it airs in Japan but is then taken down by Youtube so you have to be quick in catching it. Last week’s episode been deleted. Sorry.
