On August 29th, 2011 the top 12 AKB48 media senbatsu girls paid a most anticipated visit to the SmapxSmap Bistro set and even having devoured hundreds of hours of Smap Bistro over the years I can honestly say that this episode was certainly one of the most entertaining I’ve ever watched!!

~SMAPxSMAP Bistro August 29th, 2011 (guest: AKB48♥)~

Smap’s Bistro format follows a dining experience where there’s no set menu to limit guests so they may order as they wish~* to their hearts delight :). Nakai~kun acts as host and main personality driving the conversations and overall flow of the show while the remaining four are paired up in varying combinations. The AKB48 girls decide on ‘sweets’ with the teams of Kimutaku & Tsuyoshi vs. Shingo~kun & Goro~kun for this episode taking on the task of creating the most yummy desserts in hopes of winning the tummies and hearts of AKB48. It’s often customary for the guest(s) to visit the kitchen area and meet and greet with their preparers in an early part of the segment where the conversations often take on lives of their very own ranging from past meetings to working with one another often in television and drama to current interests and issues (it’s like you could realistically do a six degrees of SMAP as they seem to connect to every guest with personal/ professional experiences)….however on this episode we are treated to a most unique revelation in the spirit~* of AKB48 themselves as an official Smap Sousenkyo (General election) takes place with a large board display containing the hidden rankings of the guys right on cue!

SmapxSmap Bistro (AKB48 2011 media senbatsu members) (27)The girls votes have already been tallied and Nakai~kun goes on to reveal the general election ranking results on the large board which plays out with a hypothetical format asking each of the twelve girls to cast votes in four distinctly different categories. It’s most amusing and also insightful as the girls react to the guys’ rankings with their personal reasons for voting for a particular Smap member after a show of hands of whom voted for each stage of the results and the inevitable following questions with which often humorous revelations are made.

~SMAP Sousenkyo results!!~

The hypothetical categories are:

1. “Isshou ni umi ni iku nara” (If you go to the beach together ‘which SMAP guy would you choose?’)

Rank 1- Kimutaku

Rank 2- Shingo~kun

Rank 3- Goro~kun

Rank 4- Tsuyoshi & Nakai (tie)

You could totally see that one coming as Kimutaku is well known to love the beach and surfing in particular plus perhaps he and Shingo~kun are seen as the more fun type here.

2. “Koibito ni suru nara” (If one were to be your lover ‘which SMAP guy would you choose?’)

Rank 1- Tsuyoshi

Rank 2-Shingo~kun

Rank 3- Goro~kun

Rank 4- Kimutaku & Nakai (tie)

This one was soooooo funny and in some ways surprising!!! Poor Nakai~kun points out a trend now developing with he being at the bottom for the first two =O and even Kimutaku takes a heavy blow here ranking at the bottom as well =O!! Tsuyoshi on the other hand relishes in the moment after an initial shock and wait till you see whom comments on his kind personality as the reason for their vote and agreeing with the outcome! And see nice guys don’t always finish last!! =D.

3. “Sensei ni suru nara” (If one were to be you teacher ‘which SMAP guy would you choose?’)

Rank 1- Nakai~kun, Tsuyoshi & Shingo (tie)

It’s soooooo funny as Nakai~kun NOW ranks #1 but not necessarily for what he wanted to rank highly in!! Again poor Nakai~kun, although amidst his pain the girls try to raise his spirits with their reasoning for this and Tsuyoshi and Shingo are right there with him =D.

Rank 2- Goro~kun

Rank 3- Kimutaku

In some ways a blow also to Kimutaku as I think most men would like to think of themselves as a figure of sense and intelligence.

4. “Jibun wo produce shite hoshii” (If one were to produce on their own ‘which SMAP guy would they choose?’)

Rank 1- Nakai~kun

So he’s sensei and producer =D.

Rank 2- Kimutaku & Goro~kun (tie)

Rank 3- Tsuyoshi & Shingo~kun (tie)

And now the Bistro~eating portion begins with team Kimutaku & Tsuyoshi vying for the votes of the girls versus team Goro~kun & Shingo~kun also vying to capture their stomachs and hearts.

Each pairing presents their various dishes in succession and after all dishes have been savored…eaten…or loved♥!! along with a running commentary from each of the chefs it’s then time for the decision which most of the time is a most difficult one to imagine or predict as I always love to guess along with the program to see if I could correctly read the guest(s)’s reactions to each dish presented as I watch them. Host Nakai~kun calls for the decision and with a showing of hands the winning pairing is revealed!!

~The SMAP Bistro ‘Oishii desu♥’ phenomenon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~

In each and every episode Shingo~kun reacts to a declaration of “oishii~!!!” by the guest(s) as they’re enjoying the opposing team’s dishes and he then appears in a playful statement which usually involves dressing as the guest in present or past form via cosplay and whether they’re male or female….it doesn’t matter any with most funny results always…(^q^)!

However.

In this episode the voicing of “oishii!!” instead triggers a surprise cosplay from Tsuyoshi instead which was the biggest shock to begin with until he then charms the girls going from production to famous producer Tsuyoshi then being nicknamed “Na~P” on the spot by the girls of AKB48♥!! So funny and I guess Tsuyoshi although ranking low on the earlier ‘producer’ category does just fine here channeling his inner AkiP~* =D.

~The “true” meaning of ‘AKB’ revealed by Na~P himself…..=P~

Now that Tsuyoshi has become Na~P why not uncovering the “truth” behind the AKB name and brand…(^q^)! So instead of “Akihabara” the A~K~B now stands for albeit in Tsuyoshi’s world =P….

~The SMAP Bistro winner \(^o^)/ ☆!!!!~

SmapxSmap Bistro (AKB48 2011 media senbatsu members) (75)

At the end of each episode Nakai~kun calls for the decision to be made and here the pairing of Kimutaku and Tsuyoshi (red team) are triumphant \(^o^)/~!!!!

Guests usually give a brief commentary on the reason(s) and/or the particular dish which swayed them towards a pairing and then male guests traditionally present the winning pair (member) with a special gift conveying their thank~you while female guests award the winning team (member) with a kiss~♥ (*´∀`)ー♥♥♥!

~The congratulatory kiss♥!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~

So to the victors come the many kisses in this case….twelve of them!!!!

Interestingly though Kimutaku on his very own accord suggests that Tsuyoshi alone receive their congratulatory kisses~♥….I thought for a minute on why he may have truly suggested this as he’s never before as far as I know not received his congratulatory kiss~♥ from a guest(s) and I came up with a couple of theories such as perhaps his being married?..but he’s been married for quiet a long time now so that doesn’t make any sense of it or perhaps their previous General Election’s results had something to do with it I can imagine although even that I think would be a stretch….? In any case lucky Tsuyoshi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!……!

And watch for Takamina….she’s so tiny it’s cute how she needs to tippy~toe just to reach Tsuyoshi’s cheek although for Yuko it’s very much the same although she has an easier going about it here ^^♥。

    HI. Thank you for linking me here. Oh, I wish I couldn’t understand everything that’s being said! Nevertheless, I really enjoyed seeing the ‘classic’ line-up (two oshi present!) and the cooking, and your summary really helped. It’s weird, but this was just 3 years ago, but it feels like 10. Maybe so much happens with the 48 groups that time runs differently.

    • U~n AKB’s lineup here may be even fuzzier than the post itself intended =D! The idol world keeps turning away and at times much too quickly as countless have graduated well way too soon I’ve thought over the years. I thought it was brilliant how Smap managed to mesh together their own style of these types of reveals on guests as they pertain to themselves along with the ideals of AKB’s General Election (。ーωー。)笑。And the questions as always are set up perfectly to jilt the guys of SMAP and their reactions face to face with their guests whom have to answer these put-you-on-the-spot questions is always hilarious and I may add even shocking at times as typically everyone expects Kimutaku and Shingo to rate highly with the ladies but that so isn’t the case on many occasions which is funny to see! I laughed so much when it was revealed that Tsuyoshi out of all of the guys was voted the most to be a hypothetical lover for the girls and poor Nakai-kun couldn’t catch a break here as he was always at the bottom until when it wasn’t pertaining to anything romantic…(^q^)! Interestingly though, Nakai~kun is absolutely the personality of the group, the guy you’d probably most want to converse with and likewise he’s always the host of Bistro =D. And then alas, the ultimate spoils of the show went to Tsuyoshi…I imagine the other boys were so jealous even more so than they showed and I just remembered one of the most extreme reactions to losing on Bistro ever!! It was a long time ago and Matsu Takako was the guest of honor on Bistro and when Shingo~kun’s team had lost he actually accidentally fell of the stage during his shock and freaking out moment!!!…you know where they always stand at the very end of each Bistro episode when it’s their standard set with the fence atop and the produce just below….but anyway he actually fell and that so couldn’t have been scripted =O!
