[Half Assed] HKT48 130322 H LOD (MC + Ending)

July 31, 2013 by

First of all, watch this first:

And here is the MC part and also the ending comment from the same stage. It’s nice when we can see another side of Murashige, isn’t it? She’s cool in the Seifuku Resistance unit and here’s a cute story on how Murashige has a hard time making friends. And at the end, she became the wild Russian Monkey that we all know. XD

I wanted to posted this on Murashige’s birthday but that didn’t happen so here’s a belated birthday release from me. 😀

Also, it’s probably 50% “Honmayan” and 50% “Zettai uso ya wa” cause they talk too damn fast. :p

[Half Assed] Russian Gags (AKB48 Eizo Center)

July 23, 2013 by

Links: Download | Original Video

Murashige was impersonating Japanese comedians and doing their gags in Russian. Some parts when she speaks Russian there was no subtitle but I’m quite familiar with the comedians she’s impersonating so I just assume those parts.

Here are the comedians she impersonate.

1. Sugi-chan (スギちゃん)

His famous catchphrase, “Wild, right?” (ワイルドだろ~?) is usually said after he gives a statement that makes him appear wild. Like in this video, he said, “I threw away the bottle cap even though this is a 1.5 litre drink, wild right?”. Something along that line, hahahaha.

2. Tetsu and Tomo (テツandトモ)

They would do that thing with their hand and say “Nandedarou” over and over again. “Nandedarou” basically means “I wonder why” and you give a statement that puzzles you. In Murashige’s case, she said the painting on the smallest Matryoshka doll is sloppy which is actually quite true, hahaha.


3. Oonishi Lion (大西ライオン)

Clearly Murashige couldn’t wear like that, hence the skin-colored tights. Oonishi Lion’s gag is basically saying that one line from The Lion King’s Hakuna Matata song. The English version is the “It means no worries~!” line but the Japanese version “Shinpai nai sa~!” (心配ないさー!) literally means “Don’t worry~!” but I stayed with the English version so that people would get that it’s a line from The Lion King.

4. Kintaro (キンタロー。)


I don’t have to explain Kintaro, right?

Anyway, I rate this sub 99% “Honmayan” and 1% “Zettai uso ya wa” I guess? Since I’m assuming I translated the gag right and I just can’t hear what Murashige said to the make up lady so I made that line up.

[Half_Assed] 130702 HKT48 Tonkotsu Maho Shoujo Gakuin ep01

July 20, 2013 by

Every week there’s new comedian guest so every week I’ll try to do research about them to know more about what they say and what are their gags. I think the number of research I did on Dachou Club just made me an expert on them. XD

Anyway, it was too long to explain in the video so here are a compilation of gags they did on the show (they have lots more gags).

Dachou Club’s gags

  1. Monsieur Horny (Musshu muramura)
    Usually this gag is done in front girls who wear swimsuits as a sign of worship or something.
  2. Jump gag
    Ueshima will get angry, snap, and stomp his feet resulting in everyone to slightly jump up. He did it in AKB’s 2011 Kouhaku during the MC segment between HKT and JKT if I remember correctly.
  3. Go ahead gag (Douzo! Douzo!)
    Considerably one of their famous gags and has been impersonate by many members (HKT even did it in Hyakkaten episode where Milky was guest). It will start by a situation (usually volunteering to eat hot oden) with Ueshima refusing to do it, then other people will start raising their hand to do it. When Ueshima finally raises his hand, everyone will go “Douzo! Douzo!” making him do it. Douzo can also mean something like “Please, by all means” but I decided with “Go ahead!” which go smoothly with the scene.
  4. Sorry~ Cha Cha Cha Cha Chinese! (Gome~n Chai Chai Chai Chai Chainiisu)
    Usually a gag that is used to apologize for something.
  5. Barricade! Wasshoi! Wasshoi! (Barikeedo~! Wasshoi! Wasshoi!)
    Can’t seem to find any info on this since they rarely use this gag.
  6. Point getter
    The only info I can find about this one is that it was used in this show. I seriously don’t know how to use this gag. I’m assuming Ueshima just asked Mio to do one of his old gags or he just created it on the fly. XD
  7. Hot bath
    Arguably their most famous gag (Aside from Douzo! Douzo!).

The pattern is almost the same which is:

  • Testing the water’s temperature by splashing it to other people
  • Climb it while telling people not to push
  • When he shouts “DEFINITELY DO NOT PUSH”, he gets pushed
  • Gets out of the water, and say a funny one-liner

For this episode, he did their “Happy turn” gag after he gets out of the water.
“Happy turn” is actually a rice cracker snack in Japan, and it was sold when Japan had economically made a comeback for itself. Hence, the name “Happy turn” (A happy turn/comeback)

Phew. That took me awhile. Why can’t they come up with simple shows like Nogibingo. ^^;

Anyway, the first part of this show is the talk segment and there are some parts I really didn’t know what they are talking about so anytime you see a mention of Sasshi’s scandal that part is not true. XD

This video gets a rating of 70% “Honmayan” and 30% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

[Half_Assed] 130702 Nogizaka46 x HKT48 Kanmuri Bangumi Battle! – Prologue

July 20, 2013 by

Links: Softsubs | RAW

Because you guys are relentless. XD

I hesitated to sub this show because there was too much talking part but it seems that everywhere I go (tumblr, twitter, facebook, half48) there’s a “Sub that Tonkotsu show!” message so here I am. ^^

This is the prologue before the show started, a tiny battle between Nogizaka46 and HKT48 to see who gets the first slot for the first week.

There was only one line I wasn’t sure so this sub gets a 99% “Honmayan” and 1% “Zettai uso ya wa” from me. ^^

[Half Assed] Suberanai Hanashi (Crush the turtle)

July 15, 2013 by


A sudden non-idol video from me. Unless you consider Chihara Junior your idol. :p

I had fun watching the recent Suberanai Hanashi, I decided to sub one of the stories. Initially I wanted to sub Kintaro’s story but this was funnier. Plus, Crush from Finding Nemo is one of my favorite characters of all time. XD

Also, if you don’t know what Chihara was talking about, here is a video of Turtle Talk:

There were a few lines I wasn’t sure but so this one gets a rating of 90% “Honmayan” and 10% “Zettai uso ya wa”!

[Half Assed] 130702 Odoru! Sanma Goten!! (Sasshi)

July 8, 2013 by


I thought this translated 2ch article was really interesting so I decided to sub the part with Sasshi in it.

Also, it’s Shuukan Bunshun. I typed it as Shunkan and got lazy to change it after realizing it. Haha.

There was only one line I wasn’t sure so this sub gets a rating of 99% “Honmayan” and 1% “Zettai uso ya wa”!

[Half Assed] AKB Curry Kitchen CM

July 4, 2013 by

Since I’m so obsessed with Mayuyu’s Poop and I still have yet to sub my first video, I present you the AKB Curry Kitchen CM! It’s not very long but a nice training for me. It’s also kind of a late introduction to myself for the people who don’t know me yet because it’s my first remote attempt to subbing after all 🙂 I have never used Aegisub before this, so this is kinda my first attempt. Seriously, if you start using it you will get more respect for other subbers who do things perfectly D: I had a hard time making this but I’m kinda satisfied with it after all XD

Anyways, as for the rating I could rate this sub a 0% Honmayan because I made everything up 8-D


Still hope you will enjoy this very short sub LOL!

[Half Assed] 130701 HEY! HEY HEY! SP

Download: RAW | SOFTSUBS

I know Bilingual48 already subbed the talk part but I was already 80% done with subbing so might as well finish it. XD

So I subbed the whole thing: The talk segment, the musical chair game and also you guys get a bonus half-assed version of “Heavy Rotation”!

The musical chair game is mostly correct but there’s a lot of parts I wasn’t sure about in the talk segment so this subs get a 80% “Honmayan” and 20% “Zettai uso ya wa”!

Half48 Image Manipulation Club!

July 2, 2013 by

Heya everyone! We have something new again! 😀 I have this tumblr account laying around and I figured that it would just be a waste to leave this laying around! Since we are doing a lot of image manipulation lately I thought heck why not use it for all of those? XD It’s a much better place to post them than on facebook, twitter or on the main site. All the manipulations I have done before are on the tumblr account and all new ones are to follow there! If you are not a fan of tumblr, do not fear! Tumblr supports auto posting to Facebook and Twitter, so I will make use of that form now on! 😀 Anyways, have fun browsing our current image manipulation collection and expect much more to come in the future! 😀
