http://www.freibadbeberrohrsen.de/?dance-your-dissertation dance your dissertation After spending about two months having four teams battle it out by taking on different challenges, Gamushara (ガムシャラ) decided to take the time for a debriefing episode led by Yasui Kentaro-kun.

http://puravidashollow.com/homework-help-ven-diagram/ Actually, it’s more of a deleted scenes episode, as we get to see some stuff that they didn’t include while telling us the story of the challenges the first time around. Probably most of this stuff should have just been included in the first place, but at least we get to see it now.

Shounen Club 2014.09.10 Review

Posted on: September 15th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

go here Shounen Club (ザ少年倶楽部) is a music variety show hosted by Kawai Fumito of A.B.C-Z and Kiriyama Akito of Johnny’s West that showcases the song-and-dance skills of the Johnny’s Entertainment agency’s most recently debuted groups – A.B.C-Z, Sexy Zone, and Johnny’s West – as well as the agency’s trainees (known as juniors).

get The second episode for September begins with A.B.C-Z introducing the theme of the show – 15th anniversary year again, even though I still have no idea how they figure that – and then performing “Legend Story”. Hashimoto-kun’s opening wasn’t quite as striking as before – more muted this time.

source site Moving along, Kawai-kun and Kiriyama-kun introduced the first performers – Hirano Sho, Nagase Ren, and Takahashi Kaito. This is a bit unusual since we’ve normally had one of the other debuted groups out to do the talk at this point even when a junior group was preparing to perform.

Kinkyori Renai Ep 03 Review

Posted on: September 11th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

watch While quiet around others, Haruka (Abe Aran) started Kinkyori Renai (近キョリ恋愛) entirely cheerful around his two friends – Mirei (Ishibashi Anna) and Kanata (Kishi Yuta).

They begin this episode by noting that Ririko seems to have quickly recovered after being dumped by her boyfriend. When Haruka points out that Ririko and Tachibana (Nagayama Takashi) have actually gotten back together, that throws the other two for a loop and they demand answers.

Gamushara 2014.08.17 Review

Posted on: September 7th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

This episode of Gamushara (ガムシャラ) follows the August 10th one more or less directly, and I recommend watching both together. In fact, there are multiple versions of the events depicted being mixed-and-matched, as in the August 16th special and also the September J’s Partys. The one thing the August 16th special lacked that this episode has, though, was the final result – which team won.

We begin with the formidable double dutch team – Matsumura Hokuto, Morohoshi Shoki, Morimoto Shintaro, Tanaka Juri, and Kyomoto Taiga. Unlike some of the other teams, this team went into the challenge with some basic skills in this area, and early on I thought that the main thing they had to learn was how to turn the ropes.

I’m sure they will show us some tremendous skills, but editing has so far hidden most of their attempts to practice those. In the interest of surprise, the editor has made this team’s segments one of the most difficult to appreciate. They focused a long time on the speed-step, and only in this episode do we get to see what they were really up to. We first see then three days before the big day.

And I think they are the only group who we are told (by the commentator) did their entire run perfectly during practice.

Gamushara 2014.08.10 Review

Posted on: September 6th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

If you’ve watched and enjoyed any of the Gamushara (ガムシャラ) episodes in the past month or so, you’ll probably want to tune in to this one and the next one, because we finally get to see the results of all the effort the juniors have been putting in during that time.

It is all in the auspices of the Gamushara Summer Festival, which also got its own special on August 16th. I’m not going to review that special, though, because we will be seeing most of the action in these regular Gamushara episodes anyway.

2014.08.10 Gamushara 000 2014.08.10 Gamushara 001

This episode covers the breakdancing team (Iwahashi Genki, Takahashi Fuu, Takahashi Kaito, Matsuda Genta, and Hayashi Ren) and the basketball trick team (Jesse, Hanzawa Akatsuki, Masuda Ryo, Fukusawa Tatsuya, and Iwamoto Hikaru), while the August 17th installment will deal with the other two groups.

We start with the breakdancing guys, and find out that Iwahashi-kun has been nursing a fever (if you recall the previous episode, Matsukura Kaito was also ill, so apparently something was going around). As a result, he wasn’t able to attend the practice two days before the main event. The staff noted that his temperature was at 39.5 degrees Celsius – 103 Fahrenheit.

Gamushara J’s Party 2014.08.09 Review

Posted on: September 1st, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

This was the second Gamushara J’s Party!! (ガムシャラ J’s Party!!) for August, and it had the same cast as the first – Jesse, Masuda Ryo, Hanzawa Akatsuki, Kyomoto Taiga, Takahashi Fuu, Tajima Shogo, Morohoshi Shoki, Anderson Casey, Morimoto Shintaro, Tanaka Juri, and Matsumura Hokuto.

They started with a . . . a rendition of “Let It Be” from Masuda-kun with assistance from Jesse-kun. This was certainly high on the freshness scale, but as a longtime Beatles fan, this sure lacked any of the impact or depth of the song. Done properly (and a variety of good renditions have been done over the years) this is a very moving song, and while I think Masuda Ryo-kun is capable of singing it closer to that style, this was the polar opposite – it was too light.

It was also an odd way to start the episode, so once again the producers/director don’t seem to plan two episodes when getting the juniors to perform a J’s Party – the juniors just do their songs and the director chops the concert in half, adding filler where necessary.

Masuda Ryo-kun had the stage alone for “Triangle”. Nice to see him getting some solo time, and I had no trouble appreciating this song. I do wish they had turned the volume on the microphones up a bit more – the background music was too loud by comparison.

Kinkyori Renai Ep 02 Review

Posted on: August 29th, 2014 by tylerraiz No Comments

At the conclusion of the first episode of Kinkyori Renai (近キョリ恋愛), Ririko (Adachi Rika) asked stepbrother Haruka (Abe Aran) if she could stay with him after getting into a fight with her boyfriend. Considering Ririko moved all the way from New York back to Japan in order to be with this boyfriend, she is necessarily confused and distraught.

Also at the end of the previous episode, we saw a preview of scenes involving adult Haruka (as played by Yamashita Tomohisa-kun) which I took to be part of this series. Thankfully (since those scenes deal with issues I don’t find entertaining), that’s all going to be part of a movie that I’ll never watch (not my kind of thing). This series is actually the prequel to that movie. That relieves the worry I had about Yamashita-kun’s part in this series – he in fact has no part except in the intro.

So, that leaves us with these three fun-loving characters:

Kinkyori Renai Ep 02 000

This installment begins with Mirei (Ishibashi Anna) and Kanata (Kishi Yuta) being concerned after hearing how Ririko had to seek refuge at Haruka’s place. Even though they just met Ririko, they’re worried about her and the possibility that, after falling out with the boyfriend she had done so much to be with, she might do herself harm.

Kinkyori Renai Ep 02 001 Kinkyori Renai Ep 02 002 Kinkyori Renai Ep 02 003

Kishi-kun was especially brilliant at injecting over-the-top dramatics to this possibility to keep it from being too morbid.
