Same old shit in disgusting bikini’s or no?
Are the bikini’s too flowery and cover the goods of the more endowed members?
Where’s my fucking melon pans man? Where my fucking melon pans?

Favorite/least favorite/all meh?
Quick comments about any of the videos


WTF is this show? Is it a trainwreck or misunderstood creative genius?
Does Ponkotsu really suck that much at arts and crafts?
Should they just let the dude in the bear suit make the crafts?
What’s the deal with Paru & scissors?
How about the producers give Paru power tools? It can’t be any worse than giving her scissors, scotch tape and construction paper can it?
Does AKS have the insurance to cover the potential damages by giving Paru power tools?

Best/worst skit so far?

Do you even care about what Kashiwagi is reading during the sexy time stories or is your hand down your pants the entire time?
Unko man – It’s the shit right?


According to a recent 2ch translation on Wota In Translation Morning Musume have a high percentage of gay male fans.

Here are a few gems from the discussion in case you don’t feel like reading the entire thing. Although you should, it’s actually interesting.

“… AKB doesn’t have many gay fans. Instead they have plenty of young offenders.”

“H!P members have an exceptional quality about them that tickles the fancy of gay people.

They’re good at picking all the irresistible uglies.”

“… what’s best about H!P are the ugly supporting members who can never become center. That’s one thing that’s different from AKB and such.”

“Tsunku’s lyrics feel like they’re from the point of view of a middle-aged man who’s turned into a 13-year-old girl.”

“Akimoto’s lyrics feel like they’re from the point of view of a middle-aged man who’s looking at a 15-year-old girl as a sex object.”

Based on what you have read do you think that Momusu and Hello! Project in general appeal more to the gay and lesbian community and AKS is more for straight people?

Do you think Tsunku is really a menopausal woman in disguise?
Is Aki-P really a horny middle-aged man playing up fantasies of dating underage girls in his lyrics?
Does it really matter if you are gay or straight when it comes to liking certain or any idol music?
