Ok! Let’s continue. I’ll just split my posts into two in the middle I guess, rather than wait for the post failure because post is too large notification to appear at the end...
If you have not read it yet, part one is here.
So now it’s the guest team’s turn at bunk bowling! (Strictly speaking the romanji for this game is bank bowling, but they pronounce it as bunk instead of bank so I just prefer to type that since I’m constantly hearing bunk, bunk, bunk… ah what? I’m the only person who calls it bunk bowling instead of bank bowling? opps! >< )
They will be doing the first throw!
The guy loves bowling a lot, today too, he’s brought his own bowling ball.
He brought two balls too.
Off they go!
AH! The balls collide midway!
Now the balls are completely off course!
Nakayama’s ball skimmed off a mere three pins
While Imori san’s ball rolls back ever so slowly
It hits the side, bounce back… and hits off a single blue pin!
They score 22 points! :P
Next up is this two!
From this angle is looks almost like it’s only the first throw :P So many pins left!
Akiyama does a gag, but since i dont know who he’s imitating… ><
They ask if he’s going to bowl like this.
Yup! He is!
He still took off the mask at the very end though.
He finally makes the throw!
Oh! Right in the middle!
Akiyama got the red pin, good work!
They score 157 points!
The next game is cliff climb!
First up is Arashi team, J and Chinen are climbing!
It’s the second last game, and my, a mere 4 points gap between the two teams!
J: (in a serious tone) Up till now Chinen-kun has tried his best, at least that’s what I feel. but Ohno-san hasn’t acknowledged that yet. I think that Chinen can do well in this though
J: I hope to see his (good) performance later.
C: I will do it well and make everyone surprised! They reenact the trapeze act Chinen did during a concert last time… The pro was hanging upside down from the swing, and the guy caught him by the legs and then he lets go...
J tries to flip upside down but just ends up swinging towards the wall :P
Its gotta do with the wiring of their safety harness as well after all :P
Aiba requests that they try once more.
This time the staff lifts J up XD
But he still fails XD
J: What’s this! What’s this!
They show the relevant clip from HSJ’s 2010 concert.
Anyway Chinen believes that he’s got the strength and will be able to climb the wall. S encourages him and asks him to show Ohno his good performance.
Of course, he’ll be climbing the chin of the wall.
C: I think I can do it.
N: Sa, Matsumoto-san, leave 100 seconds? (for Chinen) J: 100 seconds?
O: *laughs* 100 seconds?
A totally serious J starts the climb!
He asks for the first grip!
WOW! Right on the dot! Its exactly 100 seconds left when he presses the button. He’s gotta make his way down though...
Baton pass and now its Chinen’s turn!
Chinen makes his way with swiftly.
He climbs up and reaches the 30 points green button without asking for a grip! He’s really trying very hard ne?
And then he loses his grip and falls! Haha… just as I thought would happen… he was looking pretty unstable on the way up already ><
Its game over for arashi!
I bet J’s thinking “I climbed so fast for nothing!” haha!
Sometimes you can’t try too hard ne? ><
And Ohno was all prepared to pass Chinen the grip...
O: Look at me!
O: Rely on the grip!
Chinen said something about being unable to use all his strength in the actual filming.
Next is the guest team!
Somehow… it became narration based. Lol… the first time cliff climb became narration based? The guest released the grip when Joy was totally not asking for the grip...
NO WAIT! The grip was not in the basket at all, its being held by the supporter!
They couldn’t pass the grip properly...
And it happened later with the 2nd climber too… the grip was delivered properly this time… but the climber didn’t grab it.
In the end they score 180 points. Not much better than arashi lol!
Sho commented that both of the cliff climbs were terrible (arashi and the guest team’s) They talk about the first grip. The girl said only the basket went off, without the grip. Joy corrected her: No, I haven’t even call for the grip yet!
The last game is Korokoro viking!
The guest team is going first!
There’s only a 29 point score difference!
Akiyama does another gag...
Apparently the guy appeared in a commercial as seen in the cut.
Sho thinks that the combination of Joy and the guy in green won’t work out well. Guy in green: Sakurai-kun you think so? I think so too!
30 points for the first ball!
the 2nd ball gets 50 points!
And 50 points for the 3rd ball as well!
Aw, the golden ball only made it into the 20 point zone though
And another 50 points!
10 points this time round
Last golden ball now...
Sadly the no 50 points for the last ball. If it did make it into the 50 points zone, arashi would be in big trouble!
They finish up with 240 points!
Its Arashi’s turn now! Can the Chinen Ohno combo perform?
They need to get 270 points and above to win! Seems kinda hard considering their performance lately… last week was what… 25 points?
Of course, the MC has to remind everyone that as regular players Arashi has to deal with the -30 points block.
Sho has a confession to make! He is kind of from Gunma. During the summer and winter holidays, he’ll return to Gunma.
He talks about appearing in the card game competition or something that one of the guest had took part in… and he knows about the food there as well… he doesn’t know all the sentences in the card game, but he has it at home.
J and N: Souka…*looking disappointed*
J: Honestly I’m completely at a loss now
S: Sorry i didn’t say it. I thought of it during the bowling though
S: I though of it when i was doing the “za seto kai ten shiyagare"
And now that the confession is over, Sho shifts back into the MC mode. S: I think at the end the most important thing is for the two of you to patch up your relationship. N: I think Chinen was quite sad you know? A: I think so too... throughout this whole day...
O: Ja, lets combine our strength together. (Chinen) don’t have to do so much, I’ll do it.
Everyone: OHHHHhhhh! Can the two of them really work together and achieve victory?
They start to show the erm… series of unfortunate events that happened to Chinen all day… first was scoring 0 points in kicking sniper...
And then making the tower collapse in rolling coin tower...
And then failing to hit the red pin...
And finally falling off the cliff climb wall… not a single good performance all day!
Can he do well with Ohno at the very end?
50 points for the first ball! Lets hope they can keep this up! The -30 point zone is worrying ne? ><
10 points for the 2nd ball… so far so good...
50 points for the 3rd ball, nice!
The golden ball is here! If they can nail this the chances of a win is pretty high...
And they did! Wow! Its been ages since we last saw Arashi play so well! (or so seriously, or both)
Just avoid the negative zone...
10 points this time round. Ohno isn’t trying too hard for the 50 points zone, they hardly stop and wait for the bridge’s movement, but rather just go with the flow… I think that’s why they’ve not gotten a single negative points so far…
50 points! Last golden ball left… anything but the negative zone...
10 points zone for the last ball!
Ohno’s like *opps* we missed the 50 points zone :P
They wait for the MC to announce their score...
290 Points! They’ve won!
They did it! Chinen finally had a good performance XD
He looks absolutely delighted.
The MC asks Chinen how was it. C: Yappa Ohno-kun sugoi! All I did was really… I just supported the handles! Ohno-kun did all the work!
J: Indeed that’s what a sempai is to do
O: I have always admired you
Kakkoii leader XD
And so arashi won today’s VSA!
Sho asked Chinen was he felt about today. C: A lot of things happened, but really, Ohno-kun is the best in the world!
Oh-chan is pleased XD
10 second challenge time!
All 5 of them bowl together, can they get a strike?
It looks really cramped up thereGame start!
Ohmiya balls collide...
Sakumoto collides too...
J’s ball that came after rthe 10 sec is over didn’t hit any pins either… aw...
Challenge failed! Too many cooks spoil a broth… too many bowling balls and they can’t even get the red pin! :P
MC: A last word from Ohno-kun please
O: My knee hurts! N: Gomen!
And so it ends with Ohno rubbing his knees and Nino bowing continuously to apologise… XD
