I really need to find a way to speed up my Arashi program review writing. It always ends up taking me like 4 or 5 hours just writing the post… then i have to wait a million years for marsedit to upload the photos for me, then i go on LJ to edit the formatting etc… thank goodness for marsedit. I'd NEVER bother writing any reviews without it… uploading each SS manually is such a pain in the a$$! So now I'm on a quest to speed up my blogging. I guess the most time is spent when i keep rewinding and replaying the videos just so that i can stop it at that exact second to get the nice screenshot. I think i need to improve my reflexes… maybe let more not-so-interesting stuff go by too… I'd rather spend lesser time writing not-so-detailed reviews then getting sick of writing reviews cos they take me way too long...
Ok… back to the main thing now. Its VS Arashi Time!
Video source is from my favourite Hachi.A XD
S: From next week, our tour begins (popcorn!)
Sho starts talking about how Ohno was doing the choreography upstairs, but when he wanted to ask about Ohno, he was told that Ohno had left already. The next day when he asked Ohno why he left so early, Ohno replied "Unnn, i roller skated a 100 rounds and then went home." XD S: So this time are we roller skating? O: Nonono, i couldn’t come up with anything at all (for the choreograph), then i saw a pair of skate there, so i decided to put it on and skated. However after skating a hundred rounds i still couldn’t come up with anything so i put on my shoes and went home.
Today the guest team is Team Chiba! Yes, Aiba's hometown :) Even the governor is here and he thanks Aiba for always promoting the prefecture :P
The green thing they are wearing is made specially for promoting Chiba's speciality product - peanuts!
Gosh the mascot is FREAKING CUTE! The side view of the mascot is just like the shape of the prefecture. What a brilliant idea haha!
Today's plus one guest is Ishihara Satomi-san. Arashi was quite shocked as they thought someone with a hard image would appear since they were all wearing black. J thought GACKT was coming...
They start of with Korokoro Viking!
The governor shouts words of support ^^
Something happened in btw, but sadly i couldn’t understand what the comedian was saying properly so I'm just gonna skip it :P And the game starts!
The 1st ball made it to the orange zone...
But it fell into the hole at the corner… aw what a waste!
While the 2nd ball was still in the orange zone, the 3rd ball fell in the pink zone… that was fast!
The 2nd ball fell off as well!
It scores 10x2 = 20 points!
5 points for the 5th ball...
Aiba winces, kawaii XD
But at least 5 points is better than 0 points like ball no. 6 over here...
It’s the last ball, can they get the 50 their aiming for?
Sadly not… they only got a 10...
45 points in all… not very good eh? :P
I guess the governor's face says it all ^^
But whatever… who cares about him when we have Arashi playing next? XD
S: Hmm, so the Chiba team got 45 points… i hope to beat that. let's aim for 50 points! Audience: Silence J: But look we have minus points as well…! S: I heard that Nino had once gotten 3 minus 50s in a row. N: And so what? (in a cold demeanour) <Video replay of the 3 -50 starts>
Caption: 3 -50, grand total of -95 points, that's the record for the lowest points scored ever!
They asked the guest if she is confident, and she say's that she's bad at this game. Arashi says that the last time she did really well on the game though, but she replies that she left everything to Oguri Shun whom she was paired with on the orange zone at that time… and so...
Aiba say's that he'll become Arashi's Oguri Shun XD
S: Are you confident? A: Yes! I'll show you which is the real Chiba! *Strikes pose*
J looks around in confusion. J: ?!?!?! I don't understand what you said at all! A: *laughs*
Understand or not, the game starts!
With merely 45 points to catch up with, you can be sure there'll be some exciting play… and right off on the 1st ball, we see the ball skating right on top of the hole… it'd have dropped in if not for the speed the ball was going at i swear!
Just look at Aiba's face haha! Close calls like everywhere!
But still, at least the ball made it to the bridge for 5 points!
this time round the ball was in trouble at the green zone. N and J were moving the board rather violently to keep the ball in play… and they succeeded!
Oh-chan laughing at the commotion :P
close… but sadly, 5 points for the 2nd ball as well
I guess they were playing it safe to not get the ball on the moving bridge too early to avoid the minus 50… but as a result they miss the 50 points and ends up with 10 points this time for a total of 20 points in 3 balls.
haha! the 5th ball disappeared in the pink zone! some of the smoke seems to have gotten into leader's eyes :P
Aiba and Ishihara-san moves the golden ball carefully but… after spinning around the hole… the golden ball disappeared right in!
What are they doing here? EDIT: Ok, no idea what happened to this pic... but basically the ball was going from the pink zone to the green zone DIRECTLY into the direction of the hole
J+N gave the board a little jerk and the ball jumped across the hole. Having fun aren't they? :P
LOL! the last golden ball disappeared in the pink zone!
So the 6th ball got 30 points… total of 50 points LOL! Just like Sho aimed for LOL!!!!!! Everyone 'celebrates' but J is not pleased.
J: You didn’t become Oguri Shun did you? A: But Arashi no Oguri Shun is like that… Announcer to guest: How was Arashi's Oguri Shun? Guest: I think he did well.
Delighted Aiba did a little jump and said "Maakino" in a sing song voice XD (Like in HYD, which i've still not watched) Leading to laughter from everyone
A: It'll be big trouble if what i just did was shown on TV. XD Sorry Aiba, when you say stuff like this, all the more they are NOT gonna cut it out :P
The next game is shot gun disk! The problem with this game is that there are so many players in different positions, it’s a headache when writing reviews :P. Guest team goes 1st, and since i don't know the guest team member's names anyway… J and Ishihara-san are wielding the bazookas this time :)
Apparently this two guys used to be in the same soccer team and they did a spontaneous cheer XD
And the game starts!
I spy loads of fallen disks!
Team Chiba gets 210 points!
Next is of course… Arashi team!
Aiba is the passer
Ohno is the receiver! I wonder if fishing helps with this game? Since they also scope up the fish with nets like this don't they? :P
Sho is worried about Aiba in that position, and ask if he's alright. Aiba: daijoubu x4 (while clapping the disks)
S: Have i done this before? <caption: its his 2nd time> O: Really? Sho-chan has not done it before? I've not done this before either, change with me?
J: You have so little confidence? But earlier on you had a very confident face… O: Ah that's about the only thing i can do. Last time i only caught 3, the staff told be to start from here again…
N: He's really complaining a lot! Ohno-san right now you're completed the most worst player (for the Most MDA).
Sho said something about how he got really black in the MMDA, and Ohno was like 'I'll do it x 3' XD funny!
S: daijoubu? O: daijoubu xn Basically they are copying this guy's gag...
"Mou… i might as well give all my gags to arashi!" hahaha
And the game starts!
Lets see if Ohno can do better this time!
Aiba working really hard to pass those disks
A pretty overhead catch!
Leader caught the 30 points throw from N even those the disk got deflected by the bazooka!
270 points! That's a great score :) Nino had to complain about Aiba's constant rate of throwing the disks though. Aiba just kept throwing with no regards as to whether they were free to receive the disks at all. Nino says that the incoming disks actually blocked him from making his throw :P
Next is bound hockey! This game hasn’t made its appearance in a while right?
the 1st puck went all the way from the 2nd passer to...
The goal?!?!?! Like WOAH! LOL! What luck!
The next one went out right at the start though…They hit the pucks really hard, and hit a lot of pucks out… including a blue puck!
No goal here though...
They started playing more carefully, but the blue puck missed the goal
this time they played too careful - the 3rd blue puck stopped in the middle of no where
the very last puck was out as well, so they got a total of 90 points
Next up is arashi team!
They suspect Aiba of purposely helping the Chiba team XD
Once again the governor thanks Aiba for promoting Chiba. Sho teases him by calling Aiba Chiba-kun XD
They pass at a good pace, and Ishihara scores!
Aiba starts getting anxious and careless, 1st a puck that he and sho passed back and forth a few times than eventually stopped out, then the shot above going wide.
Sadly, the blue punk hit the left bar and went out, scoring 10 points
This time its leader who missed the pass :P
tskk tsk leader
and he did it again???
This time round its both Ohno and Aiba's fault? LOL!
A long awaited goal...
they manage to make the last puck a goal! So that's 120 points in all!
As expected, they start asking Aiba about his performance. They said its not a suspicion anymore, but rather, it has already been proven. Then they ask Ohno how much did Aiba pay him… not only did he miss two shots in a row, but he also laughed after missing XD
Next up is bunk bowling! (Gosh, so much left to write, after spending like 4 hours already. instead of speeding up, i think I'm actually slowing down -.-''')
Anyway 1st up is Oshima-san and Momochi for the Chiba team!
32 points… not a good score (momochi's pink ball barely made a dent on the pins :P )
The governor is here to play!
Lets see if he can get the red pin!
Full speed ahead!
Red pin getto!
The front pins were utterly destroyed!
Arashi is next! With the great throws from the Chiba Team, arashi is now behind… let's see if they can get back their lead!
Sho purposely used the same ball the governor used in hopes of getting the good luck… but he didn’t hit a single pin!
28 points LOL
Sho pretends that he hasn’t thrown yet XD
Ohba pairing again XD Of course the duo gets questioned if they are actually helping the Chiba team. Aiba purposes that he'll get the red pin to prove his innocence...
Aiba does some weird ritual in hopes of striking the red pin haha
Random note: I so love leader's shiny jacket
Yappari they are spies for the Chiba team ne?
Aiba kneels over in embarrassment
71 points… but at least it was better than Sho's throw :P
Aiba copying the gag of mooch: Forgive me nyan XD
Last game of the day! (phew at last :P) Kicking Sniper!
At this point in time, arashi team is only leading by 14 points…!
1st target: kicker 1 and 2 miss, 3rd kicker perfects it! Nice!
Target 2: 1st kicker scores 40 points and leaves one can standing, kicker 2 hits down the last can and perfects it!
Target 3: 1st kicker missed, 2nd kicker… PERFECT! Gosh…. if they keep this up arashi will never be able to win! The 2nd and 3rd kickers (former soccer players) sure are showing their strength!
Sadly the 4th target with TONS of points they missed… 1st kicker hit off 1 can, 2nd kicker the ball bounced off w/o upsetting any cans, 3rd kicker (abv) missed.
Last target! 1st kicker hits and score 40 points
2nd kicker misses and 3rd kicker hits but sadly, left 1 can standing… still, Chiba team gets 350 points!
Let's see if arashi team can catch up!
Kickers are Ishihara-san, J and Nino! They need to score 340 points or more to win! Can Arashi team do it? the key point will be the 4th target which team chiba failed to hit.
Ishihara perfects the 1st target! Nice!
2nd target: Ishihara misses, J hits but leaves 1 can standing, Nino sadly misses the last can. 110 points now!
3rd target! 1st two kickers miss, but Nino scores a perfect!
Woah, its nine's day today. Ishihara misses, J hits but the can merely moved a little… But nino smashes right through the cans and perfects it! With that, arashi scores more than 340 points and there's no need to play on!
Next's week's preview: ikuta Toma is coming (opposing team) and falling pipe catch makes a come back after one and a half years! Man i miss that game! Been wondering why they haven played it for soooo long although its still on their website and featured in the VSA theme parks (not sure what's its proper name) and all… Anyway… now for the 10 second challenge! It’s the Find Leader game again! Basically each of the members (expect Ohno of cos) gets to be in charge of a camera, and they have 10 seconds to spot oh-chan who's hiding in the crowd!
Man i so love it when they win XD 10 sec challenge is much more amusing than MDA IMO XD
Aiba is the 1st to spot leader! Nino's got leader as well but he just needs to focus it properly...
J and Sho can't find leader!
Ohno: It’s a pity this too too eh?
