There was a clip from a recent Mecha Mecha Iketeru special pitting various idol groups against each other in various athletic, sports festival-like challenges and it compiles the so-called “abuse” that Tsugunaga Momoko (from Berryz Koubou) takes during the episode.

Many over sensitive fans are crying foul at what is obviously staged stunt comedy based on Momoko’s super cute character.

Just a side point. Mmmmmmm…. Miya legs.

Anyway, all the scenarios are based on her going into that mode and enraging Kato to the point that he does stuff like drop kick her, push her into powder and drag her off stage.

Come on. Do you really think she would even stay on program after the first shove or drop kick? In the past this has been done during the Mechaike field trip special with Tsuji Nozomi & Kato where Kato made Tsuji cry. Although considering how young Tsuji was at the time there was a bit of realism since Kato is kind of a scary dude when he’s mad. But still…

Anyway, I thought this was hilarious and Momoko is a good sport for participating in some of the stunts. I don’t think this really deserves to be blown out of proportion as you figure UFA would put a stop to the abuse if it indeed was real.
