Hello! Station Ep58

It’s Hello! Station time again. This week it starts off with Airi talking rather than with a pv. It’s a slower start than usual but I love Airi’s outfit. Especially the arms.

Then it’s time for a C-ute promotional piece. They are presumably promoting their BS-TBS tv programme “C-ute no Challenge TV” which will start airing on 24th April and will be on the final Thursday of each month for six months. Which is great but a bit boring here. No performance just talking on stage from a distance and then a to camera promotional piece at the end.

JimaJima!

Promo chat.

After C-ute we finally get to some music. Here is Morning Musume with Iroppoi Jirettai…

It’s the first single for Koharu so it’s interesting to see what she is like. The ace is clearly Takahashi Karin though.

Notice your what? Where? Should you even be talking like that? And who said you could go out dressed like that anyway? GO TO YOUR ROOM!

That’s it you’re grounded. For a month young lady. A MONTH!

vlcsnap-2014-03-12-21h14m15s176vlcsnap-2014-03-12-21h16m10s52

Go on. Just keep talking. A year. You are now grounded for a year!

Following Juice=Juice is err…Juice=Juice with the Sushi and a live performace of one half of their latest single (V). Apparently they want to be your girl. Ayano and Tanapon – permission granted. The others,…well I’ll get back to you.

Ayano and Nanami: KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!

To be honest the performance is just so damn energetic that VLC Media Player struggles to take a screenshot that isn’t blurry. Especially when Ayano is on screen. Her energy is adorable.

After the youngsters comes the old guard. Well not really old I guess. It’s a bit weird to see Momusu as the experienced group when most of them have only been there a fraction of the time Berryz or C-ute have. Yet the name just brings that feeling of experience. The top group in the majority of H!P wotas view. Anyway they perform a live version of “Egao no Kimi wa Taiyou sa” to an all female audience. It’s great to hear all the usual calling of members names during the quiet bits. Female wota are just as committed as their male counterparts.

It’s a good song and the dance is well done as always. Momusu have become a really strong group for dance routines in recent years. It’s also good to see them back in this program again after an absence of a few weeks.

Before the final section it’s time for Airi to say bye bye bye. Therefore it’s time for me to post a few random Airi caps…

Cute huh?

Finally it’s the behind the scenes section. Yet again it’s S/mileage. That’s three weeks running now. The members get get given drinking glasses…

Either Meimi’s is red at the bottom or she’s just been feasting on the flesh of some poor unfortunate.

vlcsnap-2014-03-12-22h42m45s35

“Look. Bloodstains. Yay!”

Takeuchi continues to get more attractive. She’s growing up…

vlcsnap-2014-03-12-22h44m50s254

Then we get a quick look at Wada’s attire. Her outfit is really nice actually…

vlcsnap-2014-03-12-22h46m46s147 vlcsnap-2014-03-12-22h46m52s204 vlcsnap-2014-03-12-22h46m57s10

Then Thingy or Whatserface does not very much…

vlcsnap-2014-03-12-22h47m57s55

Before Meimi shocks everyone by going out in daylight without combusting. That’s factor 200,000 sun cream for you…

vlcsnap-2014-03-12-22h48m08s193

I think she’s prowling for victims. She obviously fancies a mid-afternoon snack…

And that’s about it really. It’s another slightly boring show overall. Then again there’s not too much upcoming right now other than J=J’s single so that obviously plays a part. This is the first week there’s been no Berryz and I’ve missed taking the piss out of them. It’s easy I know. A bit like mock the weak. But I can’t help it. It’s fun. I’m a bad wota. >.> Still it’s nice to see the sushi get some more attention, Momusu were good and of course Airi is a very good host. I’m hoping next week the behind the scenes footage will be another group. It’s a decent sized chunk of the show and S/mileage are not my favourite group. Someone else might hold my interest more. Even so the good points outweigh the bad. With H!P idols they always do really. I mean it’s worth sitting through 10 songs from groups you don’t like just to see that one group you do. This isn’t that bad. All the songs were decent and S/mileage didn’t get to sing. Result! So yes it’s still worth a watch!
