Haromoni@ 27 July 2008

Better late than never. Well I guess that’s a matter of opinion but anyhoo on with the show…

Today’s theme is yukata…

Oh Lovely is growing her hair long again. Be still my beating heart.

Onto the show proper and first up is another GakiKam segment. This time it’s Niigaki throwing some hangers. In the past few shows Niigaki has looked gorgeous. In this clip her hair has a new look that really suits her (down boy). Anyway can she get the hangers to both land on the hook simultaneously in under 100 takes? Just about. It took 82. Must be like water torture having to do it…

Takahashi Lovely will be required to do a forfeit later as she chose ‘big’. Up next however it’s Reina & Sayumi hijacking someone’s mobile. Frankly they could be watching paint dry and I wouldn’t mind. They both look amazing. As it is the Cellphone Investigation Team have a lengthy discussion with Japanese rocker Diamond Yukai. This is definitely one of those times speaking the language would be of benefit. Through watching the subbed episode it seems they are mainly discussing melon bread…

Following this Sayumi gets a second helping of the spotlight through another of her Princess WaiWai magic segments. This one centres around turning a red liquid into clear liquid. So a reverse Jesus with Y finish then in gymnastics terms that I’ve just made up. It causes some fun back in the studio as Junjun refuses to give it a star claiming that she’s seen it done back in China. The special effect between her & Sayumi is quite funny. Oh and Reina looks exceptionally bored during the whole thing…

Anyway next up run for the hills it’s the memory test. This time Koharu is eating and then memorising desserts. With the members taste buds salivating she gets as close to 3 left before failing. No desserts for them. Most give stars though, except for a still bored looking Reina. When it’s pointed out that Mitsui doesn’t usually bother giving a star unless the participant has failed she replied with a playful ‘it’s for sarcasm’…

Then there’s just time to explain Sayumi’s trick (I won’t) and then it’s Lovely’s forfeit of a one-line gag. This seems to be no more than shouting “no, no,no” while looking scared. No idea why. It seems nobody in the studio quite understands why either but It goes down well, especially with the GakiKam…

Onto the next week preview and it shows some Mitsui tears (probably memory test connected) and Eri struggling in another GakiKam clip…

My thoughts this week are as ever focussed on the girls beauty. Especially Lovely, Niigaki, Reina and Sayumi who all look especially hot this week. As for the actual content, the memory test is boring no matter what but the other sections can be a bit better if you actually understand what is being said. Still not a patch on Hello! Morning though. At least we have a regular Morning Musume programme however. I’ve heard rumours Haromoni@ isn’t going to continue past September. If the show is cancelled I really hope they get another vehicle. One that makes better use of them. I think after years of Hello! Morning and then Haromoni@ it will feel strangely ominous if they are suddenly left without a show. Of course the girls are very busy with tours and the Cinderella musical so maybe they will be needing a break. Perhaps that’s an explanation. I haven’t seen definite proof that the show is ending yet either so who knows. Keep ’em peeled I guess.

  1. I will definitely be disappointed if the show is canceled. Unless they bring us a bigger and better show in return, of course! Still, time to worry about that later, I guess…

    Risa looks gorgeous in this episode…very housewifey. I’m in love!🙂

  2. The last couple of weeks Risa has looked really something I have to admit. I really like her due to her energetic personality back when she joined. There’s a brilliant Matthew’s Best Hit Television episode with her and Konkon where she is just so funny and lively. She’s definitely the happy girl. I’d never really seen her in any attractive light physically though until recently. I always knew she was pretty but my attentions were always elsewhere. The last couple of weeks though she has really shined. Her new look suits her. With Takahashi now growing her hair long again this would be the perfect time for a group Alo-Hello. They are way too busy I guess what with the musical and everything but it’s about time the pandas had a chance to shine in a dvd!
