Yorosen! Week 14 subbed

So H!F have once again subbed Yorosen. It’s a bit strange this time as show one is a continuation of the previous week’s theme. Niigaki is still talking about coming of age ceremonies. I reckon last week they just couldn’t edit out any of the letters from the members so carried the end bit over to this week. However they should just have dropped it as the rest of the week is far more entertaining.

So moving on to show two and who is the sensei?

Excuse me for asking but when did Mitsui become so cute?

snapshot20090119222636

Yes so cute?

Anyway Mitsui’s been at Koharu’s secret stash and is as hyper as a child that’s been reared on nothing but blue Smarties. This leads to some banter with the others commenting on her high-pitched voice which is fun to watch.

So what’s the theme for this (four fifth’s of a) week?

Me?

Oh. Well I can be a pet. Tickle my stomach and get a surprise.

The black and white one looks bizarre.

snapshot200901192234181

He does? He still looks bizarre. He looks somewhat…permanently dazed. Have you been giving him some of your secret stash? Actually he looks like he’s probably been dealing you the stash in the first place. What’s his name? Huggy Bear?

He starts flushing things down the toilet? Anyway what does the sexily straight-haired Reina think of Mitsui’s dog?

snapshot20090119223914

Hmm…I can kind of see what she means. It’s the perm.

snapshot20090119223849

Now Mitsui don’t look like that. Reina’s kind of right. By the way when did you get so cute?

So episode two (or one of four) ends after a whirlwind of dog breeds from Mitsui. It’s the kind of energy previously only seen from those celebrated anarchists Koharu and Momoko. In fact I think all three should have their own sitcom. The Seishun Ones maybe?

Episode three (two of four) starts…

Is that screen virtually the same size as Mitsui? I want one.

snapshot20090119224639

Is Sayumi singing? Is Kusumi? Oh wait she’s talking about a dog on the screen. So cute. Really adorable. I want one. I’m not talking about the dog. Five foot of lovely is what I want. No that’s not the size of the monitor either.

snapshot20090119224957

That is so cute. I’m not talking about the dog either.

Next dog?

snapshot20090119225115

Are all these dogs on drugs? That dog is stoned maaaaaaaaaaaaan.

Anyway the show goes on and the pictures become more about Mitsui than the pets which is funny to see.

snapshot20090119225331

They agree.

snapshot20090119225426

That dog’s been at the wacky backy. Actually isn’t that Brian from Family Guy?

snapshot20090119225546

Don’t do drugs kids. Don’t. Do. Drugs. Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

snapshot20090119225734

Oh it’s a dog puppet. Look Aika’s opening the mouth from the back.

snapshot20090119225828

Kawaii (yes I’m not talking about the dog).

So that’s show three out the way. Except Mano’s bit which is filmed separately now. 😦 It’s just not the same.

Show four (or Mitsui’s guide to animals on drugs show three) starts…

Well that would put me off meddling for life. But which is your favourite drug-addled animal?

snapshot20090119230840snapshot20090119230719

Really? My favourite is…

animal

snapshot20090119231316snapshot20090119231130

Very true both of you. So onto show five (well four. Well you know what I mean).

snapshot20090119231502

Yes that’s because the animal protection charities are good at spotting drug abuse.

But wait. Do you want a pet? Yes? But you’re not allowed one? How about a cat cafe?

snapshot20090119231611

Hmm they are cute but I don’t want one. I want a sexy cat.

snapshot200901192318321

There are other sexy cats? I want that one. Now that’s a sexy cat. I wonder if I can adopt her?

snapshot20090119232003

I know I shouldn’t but…legs. 😀

snapshot20090119232116

A really nice picture?

snapshot20090119232152

And so is that. Someone give this idol a photobook now! Yes I said idol. Mitsui’s been a great sensei. Full of energy and humour. Very much the idol. You know between last week’s shows and this week’s I’ve really come to adore Mitsui. I liked her on Haromoni@ during her sushi segments but at other times she wasn’t served so well. The memory tests brought out a slight smugness more than anything else. It’s been this past two week’s shows that have shown us the Mitsui of 2009. The 16 year old Mitsui. She has an idol’s personality. Full of humour, energy and cute moments. It’s a pity the only show to showcase that in is shown at about 2 in the morning. Anyway I digress. Back to the final episode.

snapshot20090119232624

PHOTOBOOK. NOW!

snapshot20090119232735

Niigaki’s leaving? I was wondering when the next graduation would be.

snapshot20090119232913

*cough* Photobook *cough*

And that’s it. Except…

snapshot20090119233045snapshot20090119233103

It’s Mano! With people behind her! And look Eri is taking the opportunity to mimic her! Total joy. Ah now that’s a proper Mano section.

So that’s it then. A great four episodes. I’ve said it before but Yorosen works better with fluffier topics (pardon the pun).

snapshot20090119233617

Shush! Anyway as I was saying Yorosen works better with light-hearted subjects. It also helps when the sensei injects some energy into it. Mitsui’s shows had all the energy and humour that was required to make the shows fun. You know…fun? A concept that often seems to be overlooked by tv producers on H!P shows these days. So this week the shows were entertaining and what’s more as I said earlier Mitsui came across with so much energy and cuteness that she did actually seem like an idol. I’ve really warmed to her these past few weeks. Yorosen has at least achieved something then. It’s showcased one of the often overlooked eighth generation. Now when do Junjun and Linlin get their turn?
