So I have been draggging with the reading of books in japanese because. I’ve been indulging in English books. However the other reason is I steered off the path of AJATT which encourages people to skip pages of the book. Yes I should give books a chance but sometimes  you don’t need to read that many pages to figure out you don’t loek it and thus start skipping to the end etc. the past few books have been on the shitty side unfortunately and for some reason I’m being way too nice and actually reading every sentence and page and only start skipping when its too late. Reading should be fun and automatic… Not all books are equal. Btw here’s are some amazing words you can use to describe your reading experience

括弧の中の文章

地の文

Well at least I find them useful.

Anyways i I wanted to share a finding. I wrote my thoughts about my book on dokusho and thought shit I wrote shizen to… Shouldn’t it be shizen ni but then I thought maybe I’m doing this cause I heard it somewhere. Lo and behold both exist with different to nuances and I happened to choose the correct one!! I feel proud of myself and it really drives the point home that immersion and AJATT is amazing. It’s amazing the stuff I pick up without even trying. I would never notice or bother to put shizen ni in my deck

 

heres my kansou.. Btw I have not posted on Lang-8 in ages and I certainly don’t feel like usig it

途中で飛ばし読みを敢行したら自然と最後の数ページのミステリーの種明かしというか物語が綺麗に纏めて終わらせようとする文章を読みました。やっぱり全ページ読んでも読まなくても大して変わらない気がします。観光の本を読んでるぎがしてならなくて非常に読み甲斐を感じませんでした。私にとって観光本って辞書と似ていて読みたくないです。辞書で知らない単語を調べることは好きですけど本みたいに読むわけないです。

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

most boring episde of kinsuma ever?????????

Posted in akb48, Japanese, japanese tv by choronghi on January 6, 2013

https://i2.wp.com/imageshack.us/a/img69/7362/120717.png

so i can’t list all the eps of kinsumma i’ve seeeeeen but here’s a couple: tanoshingo’s akb48’s, the ex-av star now actress who was predicted to die 3years later by the fortune teller and died 3 years later, and the gotou maki episdoe.

so out of this i found eitherht e akb48 peiosde or the tanoshingo episode the most interesting., the thing with tanoshingo is he tells the same stories over and over on different shows so i knew a lot of what he said/was reenacted alrealdy 😦 but the part about the bullying i had no idea about so i was surprised bc of his “character” for TV. but for akb48 i heard a lot of stuff i didn’t know about. the kinsuma episode is worth watching for akb fans while that dodcumentrary is really boring so maybe that’s for hard-care fans? i’m curious abtout the new one. the one that includes sashihara’s transfe rto hkt48 as well as that girl who did it with ISSA.  so I recently watched gotou maki’s episode which was one of the most boring kinsuma eps i’ve ever seen out of the ones i recalled up there. kinsuma is good because we get to learn about  person and their hardships in their debut days. it’s sad and moving and interesting and all that stuff. sure gotou maki’s thing is sad with her mother father and brother but i saw no point with the episode. i would get the same thing out from reading wikipedia. the same emotions and whatnot. it was bc gotou maki’s interview or whateve rwas just… nothing. emptiness. all i was thinking as she was talking was wow she looks so pretty after plastic surgery but i personally prefer the natural lloooooook instead of the huge eyes. like in the akb episode, everyone’s comments during the intereviews was interesting and people were sometimes crying while they were talking or whatever but it was bc of what they were saying during the interview that made it interesting. but gotou maki just doesn’t say anything….. deep or inteeresting or anything. she’s like sniffling and crying and being in silence. i understand it’s sad that she went through that and whatever but it was just so boring… when i saw the episode with tanoshingo and akb48, i got something out of it but with her ep i got nothing.  if anyting, it just seems overdramatic since she doesn’t really articulate/speak very well about how she felt and how she is now and whtaever whatever. i’m just not impressed with her/interested in her as a person. I was googlingn her plastic surgery as i watching cause it was  boring and i just felikt like she was being fake.  bc the episode could’ve been interesting if she was being more real……….
http://face5.blog.fc2.com/blog-category-316.html

yes what happened to her is sad but you know what i was thinking the thing with her mom is so DUMB. it’s like if your mom is on the window with a weird gaze on her face, you dont’ answer your phone, you IGNORE IT, throw it on the floor, turn the ringing off… you don’t PICK UP say hello. i’m busy right now i’ll cal lyou back. hear a thud of a body hitting the ground and go   OMG she committed suiciide/it was an accident. i hated the reenactment a lot bc it just shows how dumb she is (she suspected her mom was going to commit suicide before the phone rang… she said something/acted worried) and then ansers the phone.
that’s one of the reaons i was like I don’t like THIS GIRL this episode sucks etc etc.

I don’t remember what she said in the interiew after that reenanctment ended but it wasn’t anything that she should’ve said like” i’m asuch a dumb bitch, i shouldn’t have don’e that. i regret that “: bc if she did, i wouldn’t be as pissed.

actually, now that i think about it maybe she made up some of the detials or exaggerated her story and that’s why i only got anger and frustration from the episode instead of being moved like from the other eps..

I reocmmend reading the comments by
anengageman
chapriyama_santaro
makosortchika
the other peple are sheeeeeeeps.

even if she asnswerd the phone, why you gotta look away from yo mom who is about to fall out the damn window. whether it was a suicide or an accident, her mom didn’t have to die right then.
– hm yeah people are listing contradictions and whatnot from the episode and reality.

i’ve seen interviews where after watching it change smy mind about that preson like oh there’s more to that perosn or against my predictions they’re acutally __ or they endured hardships in the beginning of their career or with something that i had no idea about etc etc. that’s why i like that kind of stuff, you learn about people… well in this case famous people and how they worked hard etc. so what i’m saying if you’re going to try to watch kinsuma, don’t decide on the show by the gotou maki ep lol.

that’s why i recommend reading the wiki if you care about this girl? it’s  alot faster and same emotional impact. but i personally don’t like/care about haro puro hello pro people? i like akb better… one is that i like akimoto yasushi’s song composition and lyrics better. there’s something special and catchy about the songs he makes ( I don’t like manatsu no summer sounds good WHATSOEVER THOUGH). though i’m not going to say it’s a classic or it’s in my top whatever or anything lol. i just like them.

Recommendation for Japanese talk/variety

Posted in akb48, Japanese, japanese tv, language learning, review by choronghi on January 3, 2013

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I decided to write this post bc of a bunch of comments that were made on my post about ariyoshi’s show with the tokyo university guy and the AV star by me and another person lol. i just remember him saying yeah i know about the ame talk and the honma dekka…. i highly RECOMMEND BOTH.  (  so sad about kaneko 😦 ) what else! I know that not a lot of people are into talk/variety shows or have a really warped/prejudiced/narrow-view on talk/variety shows because there is a lot of variety in variety/talk shows as well as among the episodes of one talk/varietiy show. also there is the availability with vids getting removed off the streaming sites and ordering it is probably really pricey plus who wants to order something they never seen. so anyways i’m writing this for my limited audience. niche is good 🙂 though in japan  it’s hardly niche..

so first i’m gonna reiterate some information about japanese talk/variety shows JUST SO you don’t miss out on good stuff but you know at the same time don’t waste your time trying to like something you don’t like or trying to find something you find utterly boring/pointless as interesting because of x reason.

What I LOVE about it is…the interesting talk, the deep talk, hilarious talk etc etc. basically intersting talking! hence TALK/variety show!  ALSO like i said before withthe previous post, i hate how korean talk/variety shows are so noisy or poorly edited (compared to japaense), really obnoxious and just … just not think of the viewers. IT’S LIKE NO I DON’T GIVE A SHIT THAT B-LIST CELEBS ARE PLAYING SOME GAME THAT  I CAN PLAY WITH MY FRIENDS… hence i hate 1 night 2 days/running man etc etc (it’s not funnny at all to me… it’s just one of those things like i find big bang theory stupid and not funny as well asmodern family as well as new girl. i don’t care how many damn awards you throw at it. it does’nt change its suckiness) . but like i said in my previous post, my…. relatives find it fun to watch and that it doesn’t require much thinking. i can understand the second part but i will nevr comprehend the first part just bc of my love towards japaense shows.

so that is why I am recommending these shows and for the record I do not like recommending anything that’s embarrassing. in other words, people who go crazy over __ and like recommends it and then you watch it and your response either ends up being zzz…. wtf, this crap is average/mediocre/below-average/complete shit or…. it’s good but not that good. Like recently I read the book  children (chirudoren) by isakarou something something and that book has…. REALLY high reviews amazon like 4.5 starss high… from what I could tell from his writing style from my brief reading in bookoff… his writing style is compatible with me so i gave him a shot. and to give a shot with an author, i usually choose an award-winnning book. sothis was did win an award. but for me this book is like 3/5 or 2.5/5 … it’s just nichijou-kei. I like certain aspects/parts about it but overall i do not see why it’s 4/5 or 5/5. for tanpenshuu … hana no manma and natsu no anthology were more enjoyable and interesting for me (those are like 4/5 or 4.5/5… hana no manma is AWESOME) so that’s why i have to rate his book lower bc all i can do is compare to books i’ve read thus far. BUT from the amazon reviews, some people said they loved his other book ___ and was disappointed with this one b.c. of the popularity/hype so i will try to chceck out his other books as well  in the future provided book-off puts his books in the dollar section lol.

So basically I personally don’t like recommending anything unless i really find it totally awesomely fun and i have some amount of confidence that the person who  i recommend it to won’t respond back with uh… it’s nothing special.. I feel like just the word recommendation sorta holds the nuance that out of all the __ I watched I felt ___ is the most entertaining/worth watching. OF COURSE there’s also personal taste differences but you know i just described in this post what I love about japanese talk/variety show. so i tihnk you should know whether or not there’s a chance in hell if you find what I find interesting/awesome also interesting/awesome. however, with this post i will probably end up doing the opposite of what i just said because the nature of variety/talk shows/tv is just is what it is.  lol.

so the thing with talk/vaerity shows, at lesat for me, is let’s say i find one i really like but then there’s some parts of the show I REALLY find boring no matter what or some of the kikaku (it could span the whole ep or half the ep, who knows) is just really crappy and uninteresting but there’s also episodes that make me laugh out loud from beginning to end. So if I GAVE UP on haneru no tobira after seeing the 100en shop bit I would hav eNEVER watched the episode with the bakuro (where the cast tell their biggest secret.  of course the cast are all geinin so it’s hilarious shit). I’m not saying I sat through the 100 en shop big. what i did was fsat-forward the show to see if tehre’s any part worth wathcing and i found out there is.

just a tip … i find idol shows easier to understand and to be more everyday conversation if reinforcing common/japanese vocabulary is important to you. ie arahsi, akb48. but the thing is even though it’s  easy to understand and reinforcing in that way it’s still funny and enjoyable to watch.   but by all means don’t limit yourself to idol shows just bc they’re easier because those geinin are frickin’ hilarious.

So I’m just going to talk about  a bunch of japnaese talk/variety shows that i like. plesae take into consideration what i said before about duddy episodes, segments, etcc. don’t scream bullshit till you fast-forward lol.

竹山のやりたい100のこと ~ザキヤマ&河本のイジリ旅~ – wow I caught this on youtube and I love it. koumoto’s laugh is to die for and zakiyama is awesome. it was so funny in ep 4 when zakiyama was like if you just say yaritai yaritari w.o. the yaritakunai it becomes realllllllly vulgar. I’m definitely gonna check out other eps. i don’t know if i want to recommend this show but I personalllly LOVE It. the takeyama ijiri on london hearts is so funny too the yakusha thing… lol. I wonder if the show was filmed before the whole mess with koumoto’s mom or if the show ended after that ended. but anyways i hope there’s many eps. I would recommend checking it out if you’re in the loop with geinin and you love the takeyama ijiri on london hearts.

ブラマヨとゆかいな仲間たち アツアツっ! – so I’ve been loving this show ever since it aired. it completely is what I love about japanese talk/vairety show with the geinin. so the show is called blahblahblah atsuatsu bc they gotta talk PASSIONATELY about whatever. and geinin are really good at speaking/telling stories. it’s hosted by black mayonnaise which is definitely one of the top tier conbis in japanese now. I like both of them but yoshida is pretty twisted….  so there’s a lot of interesting stories  and both parties are good at talking so it’s enjoyable and fun to watch . So the host are like A+ tier as far as geinin are concerned.  it’s a shinya show (airs at midnight?) so they don’t have limits… you know how  if a  gets the prized golden hour for its airing they have to keep it g or pg which might sorta limit/hamper the people who are on the show with their creativity. that is not to say that this show is only full of shimo-neta stuff…. what ‘m saying is they don’t have to deal with those kind of restrictions or pressure to please the broad audience as opposed to whatever audience. so i’m finally catching up with this show and watching eps i havnet seen yet.  so one i saw recently was with jarujaru (I love this conbi) and they talked about the whole m-1 granpri (guranpuri… what is this word in english lol) grandpre?  debacle (I personally liked their manzai but now i get why everyone was so pissed at them) and why did what they did… it was awesome finding out the back story. i actually watched that m-1 grnpuri bc jarujaru wasin it and i wanted to see who was most funy. ps. i found the winner not FUNNY but at least they didn’t become popular after winning. I prefer punk bubu over owarai meshi ( the winners) that year. the winners talked about a bird-person or something.. basically it was dumb and not funny. I’ve seen the m-granpri before and i don’t find all the people funny and i don’t agree with the judges but there are funny ones in there.

for watching download off clubbox or search with name of show and douga or name of show on youku or on tudou.

ひみつの嵐ちゃん!– i like it a lot. the older eps anyway from 2009 and back? The easy to understand  ( compared to others ) but still funny. Not sure if it’s as fun for guys… i dont think it is. the ones airing now a days with the share house is boring..

はねるのトびら  – 暴露 – that ep was awesome 🙂 that episode you should definitely watch. i loved the bakuro one about suzuki because it was so harash and real. i hate suzuki too man…

ゴットダン - there’s sorashi tai and a whole other kikaku but this show can be crude lol. so yeah… thre’a lot of kikaku so see if any interest you.  I love this shwo somtimes ie マジ歌選手権…. omg i love some of the songs for reals. and it’s so funnnnnnny!! I laugh out loud while i watch that. If I had milk in my mouth like the judges i would have to clean up my house. i thought the title was GODDAMN b.c. the show is crude sometimes.. turns out it’s GOD TONGUE . i found out from clubbox lol. so sorry it’s ゴッドタン, my miss lol. バカヤロウ徒競走 IS INTERESTING too.

有田とマツコと男と女  – some of it is interesting and hilarious but some of it is okay. artita and matsuko is an interesting combination i thought and it does work…. I like the part with the gaikokujin of course. i would skip the part about ippatsu ya because they were famous for a brief amount of time in the 80s or 70s or some shit.

speaking of matsuko + someome. matsuko and ariyoshi’s ikari shintou is okay. at first i had mad expecatations bc it was matsuko and ariyoshi. the funny thing is even they talked about it on the show… i know that people expect both of us to be all pissed and be yelling and spitting poison out of our mouths but we’re just normal people lol. it’s just okay….. I don’t know if it got better or anything. BUT I do have eps on my que for certain eps because it came up on the news (entertainment news) that they talked something that seemed really interesitng.
akbingo  – i only watch interesting kikaku episodes ie i do not watch the episode the burger shop, flour, stupid games that have no meaningful conversation etc. i like interesting talk. I also like let’s DANSO lol.

くだまき八兵衛X  –  I lovethis show. they talk about interesting stuff  and there’s also shimo-neta lol ie ep with the av joyuu.  the ep about goukon was pretty funny.

さしこのくせに – i loved this show. i don’t know why but i jjust loved it. they had an episode with kaidan which was awesome. i am a fan of sashihara so if you aren’t a fan of her i don’ tknow how fun it’ll be.
red theater – there are some awesome konto on this show. this show as well as three theater features konto with a set and props and costumes. some kontos arent as funny but once you find one that’s hilarious, you can also anticipate that they’ll do variations of that konto with different settings etc. I think the show was really popular?
平和昭和時間空間バトル – this was one of my first shows/introductions to talk variety shows. they had some fun games. they compare showa and heisei. there were idol boys that were 13/14 so i was hoping it would be easier lol but they sitll have 14 years on me with the japanese. there was a geinnnin here i realllllly liked on this show he’s the one that’s in his 30s.
有吉AKB共和国  – the editing on this show is good. i find this show pretty funny/entertaining/awesome. I am a little bit of a fan of akb48 but not that huge. i first watched bc of ariyoshi of course. i don’t want to strongly recommend ittttt but i personally really enjoyed watching some of the eps.  the country song that kojiharu sang will always be in my heart lol  国歌. they have a lot of kikaku too so choose the one that looks interesting if you want to check it out.

ame talk  アメトーーク!  – only geinin come on the show for talking so it’s awesome (one of the reasons why i’m just likein LOVE with japanese tv and i just have to compare this show to korean tv sometimes because it’s so much better). find a themed ep that interests you and try it out. i loved hitomishiri geinin, evangelion geinin. sometimes, they’ll do it on sometihng i have no idea what it is like some anime i’ve never seen but it’ll still be hliairous.
やりすぎ都市伝説 – i found this really interesting at first … this kikaku for this show but then for some other eps, i didn’t find it that interesting. i know this show has other kikaku too
<img src=Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
matsumoto hitoshi! he has like an empire of talk shows. I like yurusenai hanashi and zotto suru hanashi the most. i do like suberanashi hanashi but for some of them i don’t find it that suberanai actually lol. but some suberanai hanashi are awesome and i laugh out loud together.  As far as i can tell his shows are mainstream? or at lesat popular? at leas tmore popular than current anime lol.

人志松本の許せない話 2011.06.03
人志松本のゾっとする話 2011.06.10
人志松本の好きな話
ホンマでっか!?  – educational? maybe. there was drama with kadokura and his blog and leaving the show which was hilarious. they also have nayami soudan corner which might be useful if you have the same problem.

arashi no shukudai-kun  – this show is pretty gooooooood. it ended a couple years ago but i wish they didnt’ end it bc arashi ni shiyagare just sucksssssssss. they keep saying gouka gouka or have all this crap going on to make it all gouka gouka (fancy ‘smancy) but it is boring. i’ve been meaning to watch the ep with chutoriaru just bc they’re interesting but it could end up being boring 😦 FUN TALK/VARIETY. find the guests you like and watch.
リンカーン 持病でガッテン – I wrote about this before i beleive. i don’t like lincoln in general. i don’t find the the thing wit hthe quiet library funnyy . but there are eps /kikakus that are interesting ie jibyou de gatten  so   iguess i do like the show. THE Nuigurumi ep was so cute and funny too. maybe it was the cuteness and the contrast with scary hamada

akb48 bimyo-  I like this show it’s funny. there’s some konto that don’t work but most of them work imo and there’s parts that are subbed with the konto (which is rare since they usually don’t for konto) so in that way i l ove it.. there’s a lot of i can’t catch it but if i did i would’ve understand it with konto/manzai/etc. not sure if i would recommend to non-akb fan but i like it. I would recommend to anyone who likes conto bangumi!!

HANSEIKAI 反省会 with ariyoshi -sensei! –  I like this show. the b-kyuu. the b-movie quality about it is just hilarious. they do have big people on it too. it’s just silly and serious and all this stuff at the same time. it’s an awesome  show. i love the stuff ariyoshi confesses in the beginning of the show.

情熱大陸 – jounetsu tairiku – i’d say watch an example with a celebrity that you like or are interested in. It’s a documentary or documentary-like program! i definitely gotta watch danimitsu’s, kuriyama chiaki, whoever else that’s been on this show that i like/interested in.

TABIZARU 旅猿 – this show I really like. I personally HATE 1 night 2 days and other shows like that on korean tv  since they are boring as HELL and the editing or post-editing/effects are so obnoxious and lame  but I love this show. I don’t know why. so far i saw the one in tsukiji with kasuga and tko. It’s just funny and the ordinariness is what’s funny about it…. i can’t explain it too well. I personallyy really enjoyed it. I was caught by the tittle which was kai gai dorama mimakuri. that caught me and i’m glad I watched it.  maybe it’s the geinin.

新堂本兄弟 – this show rocks. I don’t like the new set-up as much as the old set-up? I would recommend it to beginners because you can find a guest who you really like/care about and watch and laugh. it’s subed a lot so you can definitely learn from it and most of the time it’s everyday/common japanese  but it’s still hilarious!  people don’t have to use difficult/obscure words or whatever to be funny. simple is funny too.

gachigase – this show i wouldn’t really recommend. i mean if you’re a japaenese talk/variety show virgin lol then you might find it rather intetrseting or you really like akb48. it’s just a quiz show and like i said i love interesting talking and that’s not relaly this show’s focus.  i saw some eps that interested me like the ep about the korean women and plastic surgery.

pikaru no teiri – this is the new “red theater”. not really. it was interesting how on london hearts they were treating it like the new red theater. i haven’t seen enough pikaru no teiri to really give all the deets. but iLOVE LOVE LOVE bibaru and rui. it’s basically very homosexual and very funny. i think their acting is pretty goood. the casting is just perfection lol. there’s other conto on this show that i like but some are just fail….. (that dried up desert grass thing rolling across the desert) ビバリルイ nm. bibari and rui. but it’s so funny. go watch it.  they also have  part where they talk with the guest which is interesting. oh and i forgot to mention shiratori. sometimes it’s hilarious, hsometimes ifeel bad for watanabe naomi. i think the funniest part about the shiratori konto is the part (I don’t know if they shoot it multiple times or just once ) where they show a cast member that is unable to hold in their laughter (is that on purpose that they showed us that? but ANYWAYS it makes it more funny)

nakayoshi terebi  – some of the eps are intersting. so 3 groups of people from 3 diff countries just debate about stuff. i think out of the combinations korean/chinese/japanesae is most interesting. some of the eps are not. you can tell whether or not the topic they talk about will interest you or not.  it has a variety touch so it’s not just serious debating/talking with the facts the whole time through. i like other shows better than this one

arashi ni shiyagare — no…. just no. arashi shows aren’t THIS BORING.

ザ!世界仰天ニュース – exactly as the title says.I was thinking since the footage shows white people did the production made the reenactment themselves or if they took the footage from another tv show (america or uerope somewhere) …

FOR SOME this show’s enjoyment sorta goes down b.c. of the reenactment because they take longer  to tell the story than they need to. I enjoy the reenactment but that aspect kills it forme so i gotta be doing something while i watch the show otherwise i don’t watch this show. I like the talking aspect of talk/variety shows more so this show doesn’t do much for me? yeah the mysteries are interesting it’s just… they could tell more if they cut down on the reenactment… plus they hvae a part where the people do their talk which may or may not be intersting and honestly geinin are like the BEST when it comes to interesting tlaking. if you find it interesting, watch. i presonally would rather watch something else.

it’s like the strange stories they show on TLC. love how there’a  show where they only show interesitng stories . there’s probably a show like this in korean but i wouldn’t know what it’s called and i don’t like watching these kinds of shows without my kanji soo eh. lol.

ほこxたて hmm this show is average to me?i would have to fast-forward or do something while  watching to watch it.  by all means the concept is interesting and i love taka and toshi. it’s just other shows have more to offer me than this show fo rme. it’s totally recommendable to beginners of japanese and beginners of talk/variety shows.

TBS「イチハチ」 – I loved this show! so sad it got cancelled b.c. somebody lied on the show lol.

basically they have crazy people on this show and they discuss HILARIOUS episodes of their craziness (most people don’t… really have their preferences etc etc) like people that are obessed with being clean, who are really lazy, have very unbalanced diets, etc etc. they have top -class geinin on the side so the enjoyment level is high high high. really funny. !!

ある特殊なテーマに当てはまる1億分の8人(8組)をスタジオに招き、“彼らならでは”のメリ ットや問題、悩みを、クイズを通して掘り起こしていくトークバラエティ。

 testsuko no heya – i don’t find ithis show interesting. she has the guiness world record. great for her but the show is eh.  oshare rizumu, merenge on kimochi more interesting…. the clips they showed on ame talk wwere hilarious as well as those eps but tetsuko’s room ain’t that intetersein.

ブラマヨの世紀の和解SHOW – i don’t know if this show has a lot of eps. the ep with ariyoshi was hilarious. he was brilliant as always . i saw another ep which wasn’t as good but  the concept is interesting.

fukaii hanashi– deep… Stuff 🙂 I wonder who they replaced the mc with. so they tell a DEEP MEANINGFul story in one  minute. it usually is. you learn stuff… there’s different themes so DEFINITELy check it out an ep with the theme that interests. highly recommend!

ジャック10 – I liked this show but like the vids on youku need passwords? wtf. but anyways there’s eps on clubbo!! it’s like doyagao as far as i remember. people teach really USEFUL/handy information. junior is on the show.

コレってアリですか? –  i loved the show in the begining.. towards the mid it felt like they ran out and the re-enactments got too ridiculous/unrealistic but then I saw a later ep that is good. I think you can tell whether or not the episode (segments of th eshow)  holds something of interest to you depending on what situations they cover. O-DO-RI- is in this and so is bananman….  I like those 2 conbis. especially shitara-san! if you don’t know what korette aridesuka MEANS then go watch the show and find out.

shabekuri – this is why i love geinin. just check out an ep with a celebrity you care about or know. if that ep ends up being boring, then watch another one lol. i like ita lot and i didn’t know how amazing this show could get till i watched a really amazing episode.  + highly recommend.

london hearts – i don’t like some of the kikaku like when they rank geinin i want to sleep with or i want to go out etc etc. i love the ariyoshi shinro soudan and the   ura de konna koto yattemashita and some of the kakeduke au. i notice the kakedukeau got boring. if you want to watch agood with the kakedukau watch the one with michishige and ariyoshi the one when ariyoshi crashes their kakuduke. + highly recommend.

also they have dokkiri shows (IE うわ! 騙された大賞, 爆問パニックフェイス!, etc etc ) , kae-uta shows (替え歌 they change the lyrics and sing it regarding their problem/ etc etc and it’s funnyt), monomane shows ( omg the new monomane with maeda atsuko is so funnnnnnnnnny… 私のことが嫌いでもAKBのことは嫌いにならないでください) she’s got the annoying nasally voice down!、 怪談 – these are awesomeeeee very scary sometimes.

Posted in akb48, Japanese by choronghi on November 4, 2012
Firstly, a Japanese phrase that stood out to me a couple months ago…
次のナンバー・ワンを見つけてもらうしかないです! (from gingham check MUSIC VIDEO by AKB48)
When I heard it I thought I would never output that in Japanese because of the morau part. I know what it means and I know what nuance it imparts on the sentence as opposed to if she just said 次のナンバー・ワンを見つけるしかないです!
Now that i think about it the first one sounds more natural but I don’t know if it’s because i know that’s what she used or i just really do feel that way.
JAPANESE BLOGS
So Japan is known for blogs. I believe they’re number 1 with the number of blogs.
Most of them are boring, whether the person is famous or not. the entries are like 3 sentences max and it’s about food or some mundane crap. I mean it’s not surprising that blogs are mundane since it’s like a diary. i guess if you read japanese blogs nonstop you’ll have no problem speaking boring japanese about boring everyday mundane crap…. you still gotta learn that but i wouldn’t learn it like that.
So in this entry I’m going to recommend some interesting blogs that I came across on the interwebs as well as interesting incidents involving blogs. As for the boring blogs, you don’t need anyone’s help to find that. People say oh i’m leraning japanese i guess reading blogs would be helpful since it’s every day language and blahblah but the problem is some of their boring, they tend to be short, they lack vocabulary, it’s just the same boring sentences about everyday life situations over and over (but obviously you do want to learn this and you mimic to the point where you’re not mimicking but it’s just ingrained in you so in that way i guess it’s good but it’s such a boring way lol. I think you’re better off with talk/variety shows). I just notice on blogs written in english tend to be written well… or at least in an interesting manner with all the works but most japanese blogs do not have that going on whatsoever.
So first I’ll mention all the interesting incidents involving blogs that I remember off my head right now. NEXT I will recommend blogs in japanese that I ACTUALLY find interesting ( it’s like a miracle)
One of the plans on the show shuukan AKB which means weekly AKB was for sashihara to update her blog a lot to show that she cares about her fan and she’s like “頑張ってる”. So the first time they did it, she updated 100 times in one day and then the second time they did it, she updated the blog 200 times.  I think she only used her cellphone to write her blog. actually that is probably the reason why blogs are so popular in japanese because anyone can write from their phone. it’s also another reason why keitai shousetsu exist. I remember seeing them mention keitai shousetsu (clelphone novels) on the tv in america and I was like oh that sounds so cool. At that time I didn’t know japanese and I just assumed the people writing the keitai shousetsu were smart for some reason. I think it’s just because japan is known for high math/science scores or whatever on an international level . I’m always curious how it is among china/japan/korea since we obssessed with education. ANYWAYS now-a-days I know about Japan and it doesn’t faze me at all and I know that japan is like any country there are dumb people and smart people. and let me just say probably all or majority of the keitai shousetsi authors are not very smart nor very good writers nor are they good at japanese/japanes grammar but maybe they are smart since they made money $$… hell some of them even led to jdramas and jmovies  (though I do not know of any that are actually good. I actualyly watched one of them which was tenshi no koi starring sasaki  nozomi who i like because she’s pretty but she can’t act AND tanihara shousuke whos’ like awesome with the acting. the movie was sorta entertaining, terrible in many ways and of course it had way too many plots going on… it’s almost like who can actually act that out… it’s too much crap going on) . BTW the amazon reviews on keitai shousetsu are rather hilarious so check that out INSTEAD OF cellphone novels! some are sarcastic, some are really ,mean, they’re just awesome.
Anyways since japansese blogs are like 3 sentences per entry, it wasnt that terribly difficult for sashi … if it was for an english blog that’s impossible because usually those are at least a couple paragraphs per entry.  So she just spent the 24 hours searching for blog entry topics and taking pictures with her phone etc etc
so they were saying beause of her hardwork with updating the blog maybe she won over fans and got their votes for the akb election. I was like eh… recently i was so disappointed with kasai so disappointed yet it’s so akb-like. the ichiman setsuyaku seikatsu crap with ougon densetsu . btw one of the people that was on that show committed suicide. i could tell when she wasn’t on that show that she wasn’t very mentally strong. the scene was like omg what if kasuga is spying on me. it’s like wtf? everyone was like rolling her eyes at her with that scene. omg maybe rolling your eyes at someone is sorta similar to the word donbiki in japanese. eh similar, not equivalent.
but there have been hilarious incidents because of blogs. by hilarious I mostly mean ブログ炎上。 i wonder if the word was created because of the english interenet phrase flaming or they just came to that wording themselves.
Hilarious incidents ” 
a lot of the geinin/idols especially etc have blogs but sometimes they don’t but the people who are watching the TV still want to flame so…… here’s  an example
gekidan hitori ( love him and his name is mad strange) put a k-on doll/figure in his mouth for laughs on TV. but…. the k-on fans were pissssssssssed so they wanted to flame him on his blog but he doesn’t have one. so what they did was flame his wife’s blog lol… who is oozawa akane (she’s learning korean.. .they both love kpop btw)
Debu fujin:  speaking of ijime I loved what koriki said about it…
First of, I was shocked by that bullying story in ootushi town. I headed over to her blog because it was ranked on girlsreader.com …. she wrote about it and I loved what she wrote. It was engaging to read just because she expressed everything I felt but can’t express bc my japaense isn’t as good as hers… it’s like a catharsis that she gives me. what she wrote is so true and we all feel angry and sad. glad to know thre’s people that care. what the issue was that she put up the photos of the people involved  and their real names.
KY incident. ky means kuuki yomenai and kamiji yuusuke’s initials are KY and he had this whole incident with holding event and having people faint from heat exhaustion and how the stuff really f-ed up.   people probably flamed his blog lol . but anyways the reason he surged on the internet was because his apology over that incident on his blog was crappy. people criticized his apology. BTW some shit/scandal ALWAYS happens in geinoukai and the good that comes out it is that us japanese learners can learn some keigo …. the formal japaense they use while they apologize. after a while it’s like omg they saying the same shit for apologizing, i don’t think they mean it lol….  after you hear a bunch of apologies they all sound sorta the same since they all speak formally… there is variety with apologies but i don’t think there’s that many lol.
I remember feeling sad that this happened at this event because he seems like such a nice, good-natured guy. Just reading people’s apologizes after something horrible happens make me feel sad.
AKB48’s Miyazawa Sae’s blog. Well I didn’t know she had a blog but I went to check if she had one once i found that she’s going to shanghai.  so at these kind of times i’m glad blogs are popular in japan just because i can find out from the person themselves. so I was able to read her thoughts about going shanghai…. and it’s so meaningful bc i know it’s from her directly.  also i think maeda atsuko apologized about the butt incident on her blog and i think she closed her blog.
INTERESTING JAPANESE BLOGS  I LIKE
BEFORE I was thinking, i was never going to find interesting japanese blogs bc they’re so boring. but i’ve found some interesting ones! YAY!!
http://ameblo.jp/kayotanp262/ < – intersting stuff, gotta read all of it one of these days
 also there’s more links on the side of my blog.
And apparently these blogs are interesting. I haven’t had tie to take a deeper look.
http://manshukits.exblog.jp/  < – so people were saying that it’s so funny that her blog is so interesting. so she’s a mangaka so she includes pictures . I haven’t chcked it out yet just bc time restraints

北川 景子’s blog I was hmmm i don’t know if iwas surprised by her blog or not. i know in some interview she mentioned authors she really liked so i know she likes to read and i know she goes to or went to college.  her blog is just written properly instead of those blogs with 3 senences and picture of food. not only are those boring, but there’s way too many of those. i don’t think those are blogs going by MY definition of blogs that are written in english.  she writes in pretty/refined/proper japanese as far as i can tell which is more interesting to read than これを食べたよ~~ (insert ugly emoji lol). I’ve gotta check out her blog to see if

her blog became a topic on the internet because she writes so refined unlike usual blogs that are shit . lol.  no seriously, it sounds like somebody wrote it after they got out of japanese 101 but it’s actually a japanese person… there’s just no vocabulary and just not enough to make a paragraph. i understand you can do whatever you want with your blog, that you can write short or long but there’s just so many shit blogs that are written in japanese so i’m just annoyed at that. yeah they’re writing for free or for themselves but why it gotta be so boring.

>>>

wow this vid awakened the fujoshi in me. lol. love both these bands. this is hilarious. I love how in the beginning he’s smiling as he sings 10cm’s song… like you could tell that they’re really close or friendly. i feel like the “choregraphy” was spontaneous.

i watched it 10 times so far. i hope to reach 1000 by the end of the year lol. so addictive. also it’s alove song and i haven’t looked at the lyrics to see if it also makes sense with them singing together but that’s also another reason why they’re doing this lol.  I wish there was a higher quality video for obvious reasons but i’m just glad i was able to even see it  since it was taken by a fan at one of their conerts or lives or whatever. should i download it in case the video gets removed? lol.

KOREAN-wise I LOVE THE WAY he says musuhwuh-yo since korean people never say it like that in speech nor sing it like that in song. it’s the opposite intonation or something. little things like that really pleases me. p.s. if you can’t tell the difference then you should  listen to more korean. AKATT all the way!

10cm reminds me of warai conbi ie fruits punch, hannya (I do not find their shit funny whatsoever), shizuru ( I mean these were the ones that were popular like 2 or 3 years ago ? lol…) . i don’t know if there’s 3 members or 2 memebers but it looks like 2. and basically only one of them gets all the attention and the other doens’t. when i think of 10 cm , i think of the lead singer. i don’t even think about the otehr guy that’s always next to him lol.

sashihara :( akb48 hkt48

Posted in akb48, Japanese, ugh by choronghi on June 30, 2012

EDIT: a fera picture came out. lol what’s the word in english.? that fancy word for giving head …. i only see it in japanese. it’s like feraara or something lol. i’m sure it’s fake. for god’s sake they have av’s with av actresses that look like tarento people.  i’m sure a sashihara-ni prono already came out or it will come out lol. i won’t watch but just sayin.. it’s a common thing apparently.

So yesterday a kiss picture finally came out. I was reading somewhere where somebody asked is what happened true blahblahalah. they’re like oh it probably is. if it was false she would definitely deny it (they’re saying she’s not denying because if she does and then more pictures and textx or whatever comes out.. it’s gonna make her look even worse). since her apology is so vague and just oh some parts are true and some parts are not and i’m sorry my actions lead to this situation where it can lead to misunderstanding…

At first I didn’t really mind that she posssibly daetd a guy and is possibly not a virgin (at one point akimoto-sensei was like oh sashihara and some other girl will definitely see that through and i agreeed with him b.c. it seemed like it. this news is so shocking ) BECAUSE i’m not a guy and it doesn’t really make a difference for me. it is a rule in akbso it looks really bad.. it’s like you’re sacrificing love during your teeengae/20s while you’re in akb48.  i read the artiacle, i read the texts… the texts sound like sashihara and the picturse look real and i’m just like….

what pisses me off is the fact that she’s lying… like I came across this

http://www.news30over.com/archives/6320981.html

and in the first video.. if it doesn’t get removed you can so tell she’s lying. her face totally says it. she’s not a good liar. she’s  a hetare character for god’s sakes.

ths second video which i’ve seen before which is removed … she says i cant’ date good -looking people and i’m too negative/self-conscious to go out with someone etc etc.

I became fan of sashihara with her unique personality with akb kyouwakoku with the sashihara pride corner as well as her own show sashihara no kuseni and i was glad she got her debut and the way the song matched her … so the reason i’m a fan of her is because of her hetare character so that doesn’t change so i’m still her fan it’s just not as strongly.. this stuff is disheartening. i’m so sure if they have the election next year she won’t go up unless osmething happens from here to now because at the end of the day you need crazy/rich fans to buy thousands of cds to vote you into the top lol. no for reals. i will never vote for an akb48 eelctrion since i dont’ live there and i dont’ want to spend my money that day and it’s only one vote… hmmm.
