Morning Musume DVD Magazine Vol.53

I haven’t reviewed anything like this in aaaaaages so here we go. Momusu on a daytrip…

The members are split up into three teams lottery style…


Team A is…


…Clearly the best. Team B meanwhile is…


…yeah not so interesting. Team C has Eripon and Kanon which could be interesting. Unfortunately there is a third member…


Yeah hashtag “GraduateMasaki2013”.

Anyway off they go in their teams…


Err…go away Masaki that’s not your team!

And once they reach their destinations team B fool around in some gift shop…


While in team C Eripon grabs something to eat…


Hopefuly like her shirt says it will be full of sweet flavour.

Then there’s a dice throw involved. #GraduateMasaki2013 throws the dice and…


Yep. As I thought. Failure.

Meanwhile team A otherwise known as Team WIN are looking at some monkeys and taking lots of pics…


Sadly then there’s an awful screeching sound. Is it one of the monkeys? No. Then what is it? What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a monster? Is it a monster?


Pretty much yeah. It’s #GraduateMasaki2013 come to be annoying.

B team meanwhile are feeding fruit to a big fat creature. Shut up! It’s not Kanon. And you are mean to think that.

While team B have fun with two frankly miserable looking elephants team C are getting the horn…


A picture there of an ugly creature alongside three cute idols. Yes the idols Eripon, Zukki and Horny gamely carry on despite the presence of #GraduateMasaki2013.

Then Eripon snaps a pic of #GraduateMasaki2013 for some reason…


While Eripon checks her pics #GraduateMasaki2013 attempts to climb over the railings to rejoin her relatives…


While all this is going on the A team have a few problems of their own. They are now holed up in a garage with just an old vehicle and lots of metal sheets. The enemy will be there soon so they have to hurry and make an armoured style vehicle out of what parts they can lay their hands on. I’m quite impressed with the results…


I’m sure they had more parts than I was led to believe. I think they Cheetahd. AHAHAHA BOOM BOOM! No I’m not apologising no matter what you say.

The team of Win do seem happy though…


Until Sayu tells them what her own personal task for them is…


Oh don’t worry…


…I’m lion. >.>

Oh don’t look at me like that…


…There’s nothing wrong with the odd white lion! 😀

Can I just take this opportunity…no not to apologise but to say Sayu and Haruna…


Team B have spotted an endangered species. Kept in captivity for it’s continued survival here we have the Androgynouskudouharuka to give it it’s latin name…


Now for an advertisement break…


Heroo. I am a racist voiced east European. You hav come heres lookingz for odd looking furry creaturez hazn’t you? But yod do not want meercatz. You meant to type in “” didn’t youz? How many more times I say.

And now back to the scheduled program. Sayumi posing!


Then surely a world first. A shark riding a horse!


Did I mention Haruna’s cute yet? Well she is. ^^


Back to the horse riding and it’s quite clear that the horse is a bit spooked at having a shark on it’s back. So much so that it immediately wees with fright…


Team B are having a playful kangaroo fight. I’m sure lots of wotas would like to swap places with one member or the other…


It’s always been my ambition to see Sayumi go cowgirl. What? WHAT?


See? Cowgirl! Also HNNNNNNNG!

After BiggerBoat Aida Sakurahashi has a go too…


Followed by Haruna who doesn’t look in the slightest bit weird wearing a cowboy hat over her other hat…


By the way if you are wondering if you can buy this dvd somewhere you can but you can’t afford it…


…It’s two deer.

So what spooked #GraduateMasaki2013 then?


Was it scary arachnids? Snakes? Ugly insects? No…


It was cute baby chicks. Obviously she is allergic to cute things. I mean OBVIOUSLY!

She comes back though and eventually tries to hold one…and they all leg it…


By the way we are 20 minutes in and there have been no other dice yet. However 3 points to team B for what I have no idea…


Haruka feeds some geese…


You can caption this next pic yourself…


I could only come up with “urgh I’ve got some AKB all over my hand”.

This isn’t a bad impression…


Well to most wotas Riho rarely leaves a bad impression anyway.

Team A are looking at penguins. Err…do sharks eat penguins?


Perhaps they were okay. Yes there was probably no cause for…


…a llama.

Meanwhile Kanon attempts a cute pose next to an evil looking creature…


I bet you were expecting a pic of #GraduateMasaki2013 there weren’t you? Well I’d love to have obliged but…


…she’s behind bars.

Back at team A and Sayu is feeding ice cream to the others…

Someone is enjoying themselves!

As are team B who are at the fairground…


Eventually all the teams meet up. Shark attack!


After which it’s time for something that never gets boring. Idols on a rollercoaster!

After that Team A head off to the range…


Syu’s loli army have got themselves armed.

By the way Oda even sounds like a young Ai-chan at times. She is definitley my favourite 11th gen. :p


Elsewhere Mizuki has got herself a boyfriend…

vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h17m20s235 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h17m28s53

If I was going to go on any ride I’d like it to be in the same car as these four…


Perfect group!

Afterwards everyone goes on a wooden rollercoaster ride…

vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h25m25s190 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h25m55s232 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h26m31s78 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h27m01s132 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h27m08s211 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h27m18s69

After which Mizuki needs helping up like an old age pensioner…

vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h29m19s169 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h29m25s58 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h29m32s132 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h29m40s197

Then Sayu and Haruna try swinging. Fancy a threesome? >.>

vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h30m30s162 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h30m45s84vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h31m22s184 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h32m04s108 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h32m27s68 vlcsnap-2013-09-24-08h33m12s8

Hey look who made a cameo…



Anyway at the end there’s some more dice action…


And then it’s winning team announcement time. If you don’t want to know the result look away now…

In third place…


And so the winners are…ooh feel the tension…Who is it?




No that’s not right.



…Friday. It’s five to five. It’s Crackerjack…wait no.





…that’s better.


Which means presents!


Aww you shouldn’t have bothered. No really. You shouldn’t.

So that’s it. An hour in the company of Momusu. An hour of cute idols (and the other one) and since I’ve been watching a lot of image dvd’s recently it’s also refreshingly an hour of idols who can talk! That makes it more than worth it. Really this brings back memories of previous dvd magazines I reviewed such as this one. The group back then was a lot of fun and everyone seemed so close. Now…it’s great to see that not much has changed even though everyone in the line-up except Sayu has changed. That’s the beauty of Morning Musume though. Always continuing. Always reinventing. Always a great group of girls to spend time with. Worth a watch then!
