Sorry, I was internetless for awhile. (hence my absence during the HKT KKS livestream a few days ago).
But I’m back with a new subbed episode of Tonkotsu! Our magical teacher this time is Korokke. He’s a famous impersonator in Japan and because it was too long to explain in the video, here is a list of impersonations he and the members did in the episode (he has waaaaay more impersonations btw).
1. Mikawa Kenichi
One of his popular imitation. He was doing this since the 70s! Here is a video of him impersonating Mikawa and the real Mikawa himself appear.
I don’t why he was licking his glasses at the beginning but maybe it has to do with the fact that Mikawa was arrested for drugs? I don’t know, I’m just guessing here.
Anyway, Mikawa has a really effiminate nature and a clear soft voice which is the point that Korokke makes when impersonating him.
2. Iwasaki Hiromi
Korokke often impersonate her singing one of her popular song, “Cinderella Honeymoon”. It got to the point that whenever the song starts playing at her concerts, the fans would start laughing. She has now dedicated that song to Korokke. XD
She kinda has a long jaw hence the long jaw face Korokke makes when impersonating her.
3. Noguchi Goro
This was the song that he sang: Shitetsu Ensen.
4. Kitajima Saburo
An Enka singer with prominent cheek & jaw lines and huge nostrils (Sorry Kitajima-san, I’m just telling the truth!)
Also, Murashige looks like Chucky? LOL WHAT. HAHAHAHHAHA NO.
7. Yashiro Yuu / Ashida Mana
Kinda like how Mikitty (SKE48) and Murashige impersonates Kintaro who impersonates Acchan, Lovetan was impersonating Yashiro Yuu who was impersonating Ashida Mana. Confusing, I know. So here’s a video:
If you’re wondering where you’ve seen Ashida Mana from, it’s probably Pacific Rim. Yup, that little Japanese kid who cries all the time.
8. Inoue Yosui
If you watch Hyakkaten or Chiyori videos you should know who Inoue Yosui is by now. They sang one of his songs together: Shonen Jidai.
I don’t have to explain this right?
A singer and actor but is more widely known for his role as Kimpachi sensei in the drama “Sannen B Gumi Kimpachi Sensei”. One of the more popular impersonation choice in Japan. Chori even impersonate him during her round in R-1 (A competition among comedians in Japan where Chori reached 3rd round, which is considered quite a feat)
She kinda has this nasally voice and if you watch Terrace House, she’s that old weird lady that comments and narrates everything.
12. Mori Shinichi
Korokke really exaggerates his expressions hahahahha. This is the real person singing “Ofukuro-san”.
