[Subbed] HKT48 Show!

January 4, 2015 by

vlcsnap-2015-01-04-10h25m06s154Does it feel too long since I released something! Well, partly because I’m a lazy bugger and partly because I feel like I’m holding on stuff for too long, I decided to give them to other subbing group so look out for more collaborations with a lot of subbing groups in the future! XD

This episode of AKB48 Show is entirely dedicated to HKT48 so when Nakama48 (a new subbing group that dedicates their time to sub AKB48 Show, check them out!) approached me to help them sub it, I can’t resist. 🙂

So here it is, in it’s 100% Honmayan glory!




Subbed AKBingo Masterlist

November 30, 2014 by

subbedSorry for the long absence. Real life got in the way and I hardly have any time left for subbing.

BUT good news! This is something I have been planning on doing for awhile so I’m glad it’s somewhat done. I had bigger visions for it but for now, I think it’s good enough for a public release. XD

So this is a complete masterlist of all the subbed AKBingo episodes I know. Some of you may have stumbled upon my GDrive masterlist of it, which is actually a reference doc I made for myself, and this site is more of what I envision of it in the first place.

For now, it’s only on my tumblr, hopefully in the near future I can figure out how to implement it on this site as well. Like I said, this is probably around 30% done, I have so much more I would like to do with it that will maybe take a much longer time. So head on to my tumblr and hopefully some of you will find this helpful.

Episode 11 of Tonkotsu Maho Shoujo Gakuin! It’s been taking a long time but thanks to XMS Fansub we’re finally completing this show. Episode 12 will be done by them so keep a lookout on their page. I’ll tweet about it too.

Here’s a list of what has been subbed so far:
Prologue | Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 | Episode 9 | Episode 10

Some of the streaming on tumblewush’s tumblr is down but you can get it at the tracker just search for Tonkotsu.

I think I got mostly right here except for some baseball terms which I wasn’t even sure if I was even using the terms right. XD This subs gets a rating of 90% “Honmayan” and 10% “Zettai uso ya wa”!

[HakataFTW] Hakata Hyakkaten Season 1 Bonus (Akimoto Sayaka)

August 28, 2013 by

Since today is Sayaka’s grad day, here’s something small about Sayaka and HKT48! Even Sayaka who didn’t know a thing about HKT48 has her own oshimen in the group now. And just like Sayaka, I hope maybe some of you would get to know these kids and choose your own HKT oshimen!

HKT has a bunch of shows with their seniors in AKB like AKB to XX!, Mujack, Hakata Hyakkaten, AKBingo and let’s not forget that Sasshi is also part of HKT48 and she’s always on talk shows with other AKB members.

So if there’s any AKB voters who aren’t sure who to vote for, I suggest to give it to HKT48! 😉

Just go message AIDOL on their facebook page here and type HKT48. Till tomorrow!

Here’s episode 3 of Tonkotsu! There’s not much to know about Dewi Fujin / Madame Dewi other than the fact that she’s a former First Lady for Indonesia and she’s filthy rich. Go read up her Wiki page if you’re interested.

Also, since tumblewush-san has kindly subbed episode 4-6, I’ll be skipping those and sub episode 7 next. Don’t worry, we’re in contact with each other to make sure we don’t clash in our subs. 😉

Anyway, I think I got them mostly right so this sub gets a rating of 90% “Honmayan” and 10% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

[Half_Assed] 130709 HKT48 Tonkotsu Maho Shoujo Gakuin ep02

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!)

5. Tomosaka Rie
Well, not exactly Korokke but he said Sasshi looked like her when she did this. You be the judge.

6. Triendl Reina
Honestly, if you ask me the only thing that Murashige and Triendl has in common is that they’re both halfies. XD

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.

9. Kintaro
I don’t have to explain this right?

10.Takeda Tetsuya
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)

11. YOU
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”.

I think I got mostly right so this sub gets a 90% “Honmayan” and 10% “Zettai uso ya wa” rating!

[Half_Assed] 130702 HKT48 Tonkotsu Maho Shoujo Gakuin ep01

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

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 Unders center: Takajo Aki

June 16, 2013 by

For my Half Assed Unders center, Takajo Aki, here is her 3 minute video!

Seems like Akicha really has fate with being center for undergirls, huh? She even won in a half-assed election. XD

Anyway, this is a video of Akicha trying out durian ice cream in Jakarta. And it’s nice to see that both Akicha and Haruka is really popular in Jakarta… or are they?

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 😀 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 (お笑い)

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

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