Ainori #287

  • ja

Ainori is a popular reality show in Japan, aired on Fuji TV on Monday nights at 23:00.

In early August, upon checking my statistics, I noticed my referrers included a message board I had never been to. To my surprise, some non-Japanese fan of Ainori had posted a link to my blog indicating I was talking about each episode in English. Realizing that there must be many fans out there unable to understand Japanese, I decided to write a more detailed account of each episode, not to mention a translation of the weekly photo captions. Enjoy, and don’t hesitate to post any comments or questions you may have.





Hide was so funny this week, I swear he was like a kid. Hide who is usually so good at talking to others and help them solve their problems, couldn’t keep the conversation going with Aya. He was as nervous as when he joined the group months ago, and he even went back to his old habits, i.e. he kept saying long “aanoooo” (Japanese version of “eeerrr”), and he was going “ahem” all the time. He’s walking on a pink cloud of love, way above the reach of all mortals. So things are looking good, or so it seemed. Arashi started talking with Aya on the Bus, and he discovered they had some “affinities”. They like the same TV programs, have the same favorite movie, both have an idea to climb Mount Fuji one day, and Aya’s college apparently was in Arashi’s neighborhood. Trivial you say? Not in Japan. It’s enough to get a guy start thinking, and especially our national spaceman, Arashi. Ahhhhh, the plot is thickening…


In other news, it seems Takano will be on a variety show call “Sui 10″ this Wednesday night. Is she starting a new career? Naaaaah!

    Oh, thigns might not be that easy for Hide then. Hmm… I’d feel glad about it, but, since Arashi’s his rival-to-be, believe it or not, even though Hide was so mean to sweet Omami, I preffer him over Arashi. I mean, let’s face it, the man shouldn’t even be there to begin with!! He looks like an alien, has a dull personality, and lacks of any entertaining value for the show. Man, he wasn’t interesting even when Mikarin seemed to have a crush on him. I may dislike him… but at least Hide wins, hands down, when it comes to entertaining value. I’ll even admit he’s good looking a thousand times… compared to uchuujin Arashi, that is. But seriously, this doesen’t mean I think Hide’s bad looking at all. Kouji was the handsome one. Pity, he took that charm with him when he left. Oh, I guess I still can’t get over the fact that Nacchi chose that thing called Arshi over Kouji. Why, indeed? Beats me. And… Takano’s Show? Hmm, if so, wonder if we’ll be able to fin a torrent out there. Hope someone uploads it someday. Find more about it, Bouchard san. Tanomu ze! ^ ^
