~One night at the bowling alley….
What’s better than idol♥ bowling? Getting idols to dish the dirt on one another in pressure moments while they bowl =P. In all there are 12 video clips here covering the wild to wacky to downright painful encounters which occurred throughout this batsu laden event which only the mischievous minds of upper management and staff could render to be the equivalent of a night~out~of~fun =D!! And to think these select 24 girls thought they were just going plain bowling and it’s quite surprising how many reveal this to be their very first time throwing that oversized gumball with three holes down a slippery lane in search of pins =O…I mean I can remember bowling memories~* going waaaaay back to when I could barely find a ball light enough for me to lift up let alone toss with any force and it took me years to finally realize the true meaning behind those awfully painted shoes deemed safe for lane use, it’s simply so that we don’t think even twice or once about sneaking them out of there…and it’s a good thing as you know how much us girls do love shoes o(*´∀｀)o゛♥！！！Once I went too far past the line and ended up slipping and going airborne for a second before landing right on my behind and luckily there were plenty of co~workers present that night watching, well how else am I supposed to not forget about that like ever since it’s brought up from time to time and reminisce with laughter aplentyっo(*´∀｀)o！
Always love the suspense of the photo extras which AKB includes with just about all of their releases from magazines to DVDs as you’ll usually get three out of a set of many and add that to the Neowing extra photo to the right here.
So today you’ll learn not only who bowls well or badly but also who bowls cutely♥..wait till you see Shiorin’s ending pose as it’s not anything like you’d see on today’s PBA or local league but I think more people should try her pose as it never hurts to pray for strikes and spares and even more so to pray for staying out of the gutter while you sit and wait =D.
So let’s get the bowling party started and we begin with…
~Sasshi & Rabutan~
This goes to Sasshi~♥ I mean it’s right out of those ‘not top 10 plays’ and who else could drop the ball behind her with such grace and beauty, also watch out for Rabutan’s gutter dance as it seems to be most infectious on this evening…lots and lots of gutter balls everywhere from start to finish =O. And with Sasshi~♥ I think I could pretty much be watching her do just about anything and it’d be awesome..she’s just so ultra~cool and with lots of wota in herself that makes her that much more endearing for me =).
My current AKB48 top 12:
Who knew that Yukirin could one day be wearing tour sponsorship by Alka-Seltzer Plus? I don’t think even Yukirin knew until all the pins went flying ＼(^o^)／ ☆！！！
But also Kasai~♥ receives mvp honors and not just for her extreme strike or gutter technique =P but also for her being so wonderfully yum~beautiful all the time…it surprises me that she’s not the shashinshuu princess of AKB48 at times and add in her 100% natural anime~cute voice and she’s completely flawless.
~The best and cutest of the rest~
~Matsui Rena & Matsui Jurina~
~Akicha & A~amin~
~Sae & Ayarin~
~Kitarie & Suuchan~
~Kuwabara Mizuki & Shiorin~
~The Batsu Games~
If you’ve ever tried noni then you’ve already self~inflicted a great deal of batsu upon yourself (;゜□゜)！！！ I mean I’m not sure whom first thought it drinkable in the first place but it’s actually sold here in Hawaii and it’s quite expensive and it’s absolutely gross…it basically tastes like barf so imagine pouring yourself a small glass of barf and that you not only paid for this but you’re also doing this to yourself of free will (・д・`*)！I even tried mixing it with orange juice thinking that would help but to no avail…it then only tasted like barf with a hint of orangey citrus （´∩｀*)。I’ve no idea of how people keep that stuff down (。ｐ_ｑ) 。I bet you’re now wondering why do I know the taste of barf…?? Well I’ve created it myself on occasion but not for years now as creating barf was a younger hobby of mine…mind you not that often though =P!! Rule of thumb: If you go to a party with one friend stop drinking before there are three of them! If you go with more than one friend then just multiply the friend and imaginary friend count accordingly and you’ll be okay =D.
Batsu games in Japan however aren’t self inflicted events well unless you consider failing a particular challenge or task to be self inflicted =P…and here the teams are challenged to complete a frame by strike or spare at all costs or else face the batsu penalty beverage…or let’s just call it a liquid as by their reactions it’s not really looking like a “beverage”so much. Each team sends their very best to go up for the challenge with everything counting on their success or else the entire team faces certain bitter~tasting~doom!! The coupled teammates are Kasai & Harukyan, Matsui Rena & Matsui Jurina, Akicha & A~amin and Sae & Ayarin…the clip below includes all four teams in succession..enjoy the Batsu Games and especially their reactions to the gross~out stuff in those glasses…(^q^)!
Kasai’s~♥ immediate reaction and body language to the sudden narration is the most adorable too! and watch for a most unusual bowling style here…two hands anyone?
~The Batsu Games~
~Masked bowling..what the??~
And if you thought this event couldn’t get any stranger…it does =P! Now numbers are drawn and each coordinates with a mystery mask straight out of horror movies and Hollywood~*. The pig one was cute and got a beloved reaction from all but I think the horse drawn by Sasshi~♥ by far was the best here =D!!
~Sasshi & Rabutan masked bowling~
~A most revealing game~
Curious to know which AKB/SKE girl is least idol~like behind the scenes?, who’s most stingy?, who has some apologizing to do?…who dresses the most uncool? Who’s bothersome habit needs fixing? Which girls don’t see eye~to~eye? and more?
As the hits just keep coming for the girls here they’re drawing envelopes once again but this time they’re required to answer some pretty tough and at times touchy questions in regards to their fellow group~mates in attendance and they must do it in an added pressure situation just as the ball is leaving their hands heading down the lane =O! It’s hilarity at times though as Sae takes a double blow and when the truth comes out like this and on such impromptu circumstances you’ll be hearing things you’d never usually hear revealed so out in the open. At other times the harsh questions hit quite personally and you’ll see it in everyone’s reactions…a few witty moments too occur during the latter explanations made by each girl for why they chose that particular member.
~Kitarie, Suuchan, Mizuki & Shiorin~
Kitarie’s question: “Ichiban atama no warusou ni mieru member wa?”
A most harsh question to begin with and Kitarie’s explanation to a shell shocked Harugon is most witty in handling a trait you’d never lay upon another and especially a friend =).
Satou Sumire’s question/statement: “Kono member no koko ga kirai”
Here Suuchan is being asked to name a fellow member present whom she doesn’t like =O….and this really affected the girl named and rightfully so….it also involves a charm~* point of said member.
Kuwabara Mizuki’s question: “Uragawa de wa idolrashisa ga kanjirarenai member wa?”
Mizuku is being asked to name a member whom behind the scenes doesn’t give the feeling or impression of an idol. This is hilarious…I nearly fell out of my seat and especially when an explanation was warranted and asked for…let’s just say that it involves someone’s yellow shorts and how they’ve done her in and apparently not just this once…(^q^)!
Ogiso Shiori’s question: “Shifuku ga dasai to omou member wa?”
It’s even funnier that this question be pulled next as it’s very much been set~up so perfectly by the previous one!….Shiorin’s being asked to name a member who’s plain clothing (everyday attire) is rather uncool/nerdy omg this gets to pee~in~your~pants funny…not that I did that but even if I did I wouldn’t tell you…(^q^)!
~Sasshi, Rabutan, Moeno & Umechan~
Sasshi’s question/statement: “Member ni gomen nasai”
Sasshi is simply being asked to name a fellow member whom she owes an apology to =)…it’s a case of the unreturned eyelash curler….awww Sasshi~♥.
Oota Aika’s question: “Naoshita houga ii member no kuse wa?”
Rabutan is being asked to name which member she deems has a most bad habit which needs to be corrected or stopped. It’s so funny how Sasshi~♥ and I mean immediately acknowledges this habit of this member too and it doesn’t take long even after a few denials from the guilty party to do just what is being spoken of lol…(^q^)!
Nito Moeno’s question: “Ichiban kechi na member wa?”
Here Moeno’s being asked to name who’s most stingy in the group(s)…I never would have guessed really, it’s endearing how the named party handles this revelation too after specific accounts are given as evidence exhibits.
Umeda Ayaka’s question: “Jibun to wa hanashi no kami awanai member wa?”
Umechan’s question asks which member are you not agreeable with in (conversations) like someone you don’t see eye to eye in general with…the reaction was really taken hard here and I could feel some hurt. This one made me sad for her and especially since she’s one of my most favorite members in the group =(.
In addition there was a playoff between the two top scoring teams after lessons from professional bowlers were given, a special with Sae who goes one~on~one with obstacles set upon her lane with additional coaching, the losing teams had to clean up the bowling alley and I mean everything from the lanes to shoes to even the restrooms =O…oh and the winning team ate~cake! Literally! =D
