Ainori #303

  • ja

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

In August 2005, I discovered that Ainori was not only popular in Japan, but also all over the world thanks to Bit Torrent technology. I decided to write a summary of each episode, and do a translation of the weekly photo captions from the official site. What do I get out of this? I get to improve my Japanese, I get more traffic to my blog, but above all, I get the satisfaction of knowing many non-Japanese speakers all over the world can appreciate a truly unique reality show. Enjoy, and don’t hesitate to post any comments or questions you may have.

Ainori #303

This week’s Ainori was not inlvolving the participants. It was a special dedicated to a school the Ainori fund raiser help built in Kenya. One of the hosts, Haruhiko Katou, went there to meet some of the new kids attending the school.

    I wasn’t able to watch this episode… It still hasn’t aired where I live so I’ll get to see it eventually, but the download is a gigabyte, and no one is sharing it, probably because of the size and because it doesn’t deal with the usual cast members’ stories. I’m glad I at least got to read the synopsis & translation. Merci messeur Bouchard.

    I finally got to see it… so sad, so moving. It makes you realize the most tearful ainori rejection means nothing at all, in comparison.

    Hello Sylvain!!
    I come from Taiwan~
    Because the show time of “Ainori” in Taiwan is slower than Japen about 5 months ,i saw the chapter #303 until now.
    In this chapter,i saw that the children in Kenya use very very short pencil to write, my heart ached for them.
    Because of thie reason, i decided to hold a activity about collecting pencilsv in school.
    Therefore i really need #303 but i cannot download it.
    I need ur help!!!
