June 7, 2013 by

It’s finally done! Our Live Event Center should now work as it should and because the streaming links are already up on Youtube I could complete the page and launch it now πŸ˜€ As we have announced before we will have a (Offical) 5th AKB48 Election Live streaming event on June 8, 2013 18:30 ~ 23:10 JST

In case you don’t know yet, the Live Event Center is a page with a live stream, a chat and a relevant twitter stream in the sidebar. This way you don’t have to miss anything! πŸ™‚ In case you have not noticed yet, here is a link to the event center


For the 5th Elections tomorrow we will have 3 streams where you can choose from. The ‘official’ English and Japanese stream from Youtube and also Fuji TV where the event will also be aired. This way we also have a backup stream in case the Youtube ones get overloaded or something XD


That’s all I have to say about it for now! Remember again, the event is on June 8, 2013 18:30 ~ 23:10 JST and in case you missed it, here is a link to the Live Event Center! See you tomorrow!~ πŸ˜€

Idols of the Past I: Onyanko Club (1985~1987)

May 21, 2013 by

This is the very first installment of a series of articles dedicated to idols from the past. I am not only writing this because it is interesting to know but it will also help you enjoy certain shows you watch even more! Many current shows involve idols of the past, segments like where an idol of today has to do something with an idol of yesterday are very popular! It’s pretty interesting to know from which corner of entertainment they came from. Ok, enough intro, this wont be there anymore in the future articles but I have to introduce this section somehow XD

For the very first edition of Idols of the Past, there’s no one better to start off with than Onyanko Club (γŠγƒ‹γƒ£γƒ³ε­γ‚―γƒ©γƒ–)! Onyanko Club translates into something like Cats Club/Kitten Club. It is is one of the first popular large idol groups and it’s from the 80’s. I think many of us probably know this but if you don’t know it yet; You think AKB48 is Aki-P’s first ever group? BUBBUUU! Onyanko Club was in fact the very first large idol group by Aki-P! Yes you read that right, it was not your imagination LOL! XD So yeah, nice! Let’s get to know this Onyanko Club better! πŸ˜€

Important terms used in Geinin explained

May 20, 2013 by

This is the first actual post on this site and my very first ‘real’ article that has nothing to do with site development or other tech stuff! XD I hope you are going to enjoy it πŸ˜€ Also it was written as half assed as half assed subs is, so there could be some errors here and there XD

Since you cannot really find something like this elsewhere to my knowlegde, I decided to write you guys an article about Owarai terms, which are used throughout NMB48 Geinin! That’s right! This can be really helpful if you are watching a show like Geinin! Even if you have subs, there are a lot of owarai terms used in the show that you may not know what they are talking about.

Let’s start with Owarai!

Owarai (γŠη¬‘γ„)

This is the general term for (stand-up) comedy. Yeah that’s it! Easy start isn’t it? XD

120703 NMB48 Geinin! ep01.mp4_snapshot_02.23_[2013.05.20_01.09.12]

From now on I’ll try to go alphabetically just for my own convenience :p

Tutorial: How configure mIRC to chat on #half48

May 18, 2013 by

It seems like you guys are loving the chat and because of that I felt like writing this tutorial. The chat is actually an “IRC channel”, which is a type of chat room that is commonly used.

If you just want to share a few words the fancy chat widget works fine on our chat page, but if you want to idle, stay on the chat longer, get general chat notifications or notifications if someone types your name? You are better off with an “IRC client” for that, such as “mIRC” which is the most popular IRC client ever!

This article is a step by step tutorial on how to install and setup mIRC for the #half48 chat. Happy chatting and idling with us and all of the Half Assed fans around the world! πŸ˜€

1. Get the latest verison of mIRC from this link:

2. Install it and make sure you also mark the “Scripts” checkbox at the Choose Components screen during mIRC Setup.

Half Assed Senbatsu Sousenkyo 2013

May 12, 2013 by

Heya everyone and welcome to the first Half Assed Senbatsu Sousenkyo ever! This is an event for everyone around the world and everybody can participate for free! Who will be the first ever Half Assed Senbatsu? The top 20 girls with the highest vote count will rank into Half Assed Sembatsu 2013!


Check out the Half Assed election videos which are all listed on the Half Assed Senbatsu page (If you are already on the page just scroll down a bit for the first participant). These are all the participants you can vote for.

How to vote

1. Share via this site
You will find a series of social sharing buttons above all videos. If you share one of the videos, that will count as a vote. So basically the share count is the vote count.

2. Like via Facebook
If you have a Facebook account, head over to our Facebook page. On our Facebook page are the exact same videos as on this site. Every Like will count as a vote.

3. Notes on Tumblr
Even all the Tumblr fans can participate! It’s the place where Half Assed Subs started after all! πŸ™‚ If you head over to our Tumblr page you will also find the same election videos. Every “Note” will count as a vote, so if you either like the post or reblog it or comment on it, the number of notes is the vote count.

Ranking & Titles

These are the titles for the girls that will rank in that certain position

01-09: Half Assed Senbatsu (01-07: Half Assed 7)
10-15: Half Assed Unders
16-19: Half Assed Nexties
20-20: Half Assed Lastie


None, also you can vote as many times you want if you have the possibility to. Infact, if you can do tricks with proxies and all that wizz stuff, be my guest! It’s the same as people who buy hundreds of CD’s to vote for the real elections :p

Voting Period

We will stop accepting new votes at the end of the day when the real Senbatsu is over which is on Saturday the 8th of June. The time that we will stop accepting votes is 23:59 JST. After that the votes will be counted and we will post the results the next day (or maybe a day later if we are really lazy LOL!).

Happy voting!

That’s it. We hope that you will enjoy this little event of ours and I don’t really know what we are going to do with the results but the most important for us is that you, all the Half Assed fans have fun on our place! πŸ™‚
