Happy Aloha~♥ Friday ヾ(^∇^)!!!

Soon perhaps we may be going back to idol magazine nostalgia as this series first featured from its opening volume when it began or perhaps more concerts?….or photo books? Of course your voice and input means a lot so if you have any preferences please do let me know otherwise your Friday nights spent here are solely in the ‘hands’ of my hyperactive, spontaneous and unpredictable brain =O. For now though I’m continuing on my Utaban nostalgia~high and for tonight we’ll be revisiting one of Hello! Project’s literally one hit-wonders, that being the short lived unit Romans whom released just one single titled “Sexy Night Wasurerarenai Kare”, on August 20, 2003 and as Hello! Project was deeply intertwined with much of the origins of success with Utaban and likewise for their frequently visiting guests…..just about a week after their sole single was released, Romans would make an appearance on the legendarily comedic show. And it’s interesting to note that although Saito Hitomi was a member (actually the leader) of Melon Kinenbi which was active from the very origins of Hello! Project/Momusu she wasn’t yet a regular on Utaban and so…….well you can probably imagine the dire ‘fruitions’ of her presence on this episode =D. Also Kimura Ayaka for me personally has always been a favorite as her Hawaii ties run deep as although she was born in Japan she spent much of her teen years here growing up, going to school and even worked in a popular curry eatery in our world famous Ala Moana Shopping Center as she would later be recruited into H!P becoming a member of the group Coconuts Musume whom also featured Mika Todd who also has deep Hawaii ties (sorry going a bit off track here xD) as she’s a native and I can actually remember seeing first hand how her father had helped to promote Coconuts Musume here on Oahu as he had gone grass roots so to speak in promoting them through his distribution of their posters which were displayed in local record stores here such as Tower Records as well as Borders Music just to name a couple way back then!..it was really so cool just to witness so closely a Hello! Project group in Coconuts Musume being promoted and home grown right from our soils to the big time overseas in Japan and it’s such a fond memory of mine =)…and there were even audition promotional posters posted at out local Borders which is amazing!  Still what’s in a sense equally momentous about this particular episode is how the legendary and ever growing by the episode hilarious creepiness joke of assistant producer Kagaku-kun has his day/night in the sun/moonlight on this particular episode….sure there were others but I’m betting that Kagaku-kun never washed that coat of his or cleaned his glasses after this episode =P! And in hindsight if you consider the individual origins of each member of Romans and how each grew into their idol careers it really was one of Hello! Project’s most diverse groupings all time and so with all of that in mind it’s now time for this deliciously amusing episode which includes ‘inadvertently’ a little bit of WWE, The Scent of a Woman and a bit that’s Too Close for Comfort (・д・`*)!!

    Excellent entertainment as always with Ishibashi on excellent form. He’s quite tall, isn’t he? He towers over Yaguchi! He’s even the tallest member of the outrageous Yazima Beauty Salon (unless it’s the afro…)

    • I do believe he is quite tall….Mm.he’s 5′ 10″! Funny how Tsunku at times created these one hit wonders who looked to have potential and Yes! Taka-san’s always so quick with the humor, it’s like a natural funny~bone gift he has and just a knack to make any situation or verbal exchange hilarious in an instant ~*.
