Who's the number one member? The AKVegas! [Note: In Japanese there is no 'V', so they replace it with 'B'] Welcome. This segment tests knowledge and strength. I'm the manager, Sato Masaki. And I'm your dealer Oshima Yuko. Good evening! "AKVegas: A prediction game based on the members knowledge of each other." During various games, the players will predict the winning member by betting. And our players for this evening? First up. Shinoda Mariko and Yagami Kumi duo!
And what does this duo call themselves? Reeeady... Team "Nice to meet you!" Is this your first time you've talked with each other? I think so. Really? You're never in the same dressing room? Backstage... there are two dressing rooms, and we're in opposite rooms. You don't call out to Shinoda, Yagami? - I would have liked to, but I refrain... - You hold yourself back? That's her fault... the big star she is. No time for the small fries anymore, huh? [ Sign: Big Star-aura!? ] That's her fault... the big star she is. No time for the small fries anymore, huh? Next we have the Oshima Mai and Takajou Aki duo! Let's have your team name then! Reeady.... "Team 17"! That's wrong! [Sign: Oshima Mai, 21-years-old] She's not 17! Definitely not! [Sign: Oshima Mai, 21-years-old] - Here we go! - She's right in there! Can I point out something? She's not seventeen! That's obvious! Why do you keep telling us that? [Sign: We know that] - We know that already. - Was that a joke, Oshima? It wasn't. I mean that I FEEL like a 17-year-old. You feel? - Is she allowed to feel that way, Ms. Shinoda? - That's perfectly fine. OK, let's take the next one, then! [Sign: That's settled] Maeda Atsuko and Kiyoto duo!
What name does this duo have? - "Kiyoto-team"? Your name doesn't appear in there. - Yeah, that's... fine. You drew back there for a second. Sitting next to Kiyoto, you start to feel... pretty gloomy. She's dissing you, Kiyoto! [Sign: The source of darkness] Let's not dwell on those kind of things but start the show bright and cheery! Who's the number one Balance Queen? Fight to survive! The Pokaboto Bubble! [Note: We believe it's just an onomatopoeia] What was that just now? - Pokadobo Battle, of course! - Alrighty, then. This game tests the idols necessary sense of balance and also the fighting spirit necessary in showbusiness. It's Pokadobo Battle! To put it simply, "Pokadobo Battle" is a game where the first one to drop from the top of the log, loses! Let's bring on the fighters! First up is the 17-year-old model, Itano Tomomi! She hasn't got a sense of taste, but her reflexes are still quick. She'll prove that in our battle today! Her opponent is also a highschool girl, the 18-year-old, Tomomi Kasai! She's the quiet type, but her speciality is japanese drums!
She'll be aiming for a quick win by pushing back! - It's a 'Tomomi-battle', then. - It is indeed. Now I'd like to ask how they're feeling. Um... God damnit, Kasai! You... [Sign: Tongue rolling!] Didn't you say you "just LOVED Disney"? Then who showed up at half past five in the evening when we were suppose to meet there at noon! If that was your plan, we could have bought the 'after 6' tickets in advance! That was a waste of a one-day passport!! That's really trivial! [Sign: Real complaint explosion!] Didn't you tell me "Don't be late! The movie starts at four!" At four o'clock you were nowhere near the place yourself! The movie had already started! Since YOU'RE the one always late for things, don't act so high and mighty, would you, please? [Sign: They're both guilty] You've got WAY more missed appointments than me, dumbass! - Gimme that mic! -Yuko, stop them! - Yuko, break it up! - Easy, easy, EASY...! Sorry, but I think I got some boobie-action in there... Let's take a look at what everyone answered!
Place your bets! Kasai, Kasai, and Red Yoshida... - Kiyoto? - He's an AKB member. He's in TIM. I need a while to pick up steam, right? The final predictions show Kasai as the favorite! What's the reason for that? When it comes to the crunch, Kasai's arm strenght ranks up with a man's strength. If she can show us some of that that strength tonight, [Sign: Hidden strong arm!?] we think she'll win this. So those were the member's predictions, but what about Itano herself? I don't think I'm going to lose to Kasai. Let's see what fate the Pokadobo Battle will bring us! - They're closing in... - Here we go! They're surprisingly serious! [Sign: Hand-to-hand combat!] That was fast! [Sign: Quick finish!] The whole match took only 17 seconds! Kasai pays dearly for her treachery by being late and makes new friends with the mat! Are you alright? She's HELLA strong!
Kasai was a breeze! The winner of the first match was Itano! Next: match number two! Bring on the fighters! First up. The fresh high school student, Ono Erena! The power with which she swings the stick that is held in her soft hands is a sight to see! She's a menacingly flexible fighter! She looks serious! Her opponent is the Nagoya born SKE member, Matsui Jurina! She'll show Ono Erena her fierce anger! She aims to be an idol like Nobunaga! [note: Oda Nobunaga, one of Japan's famous historical figures] How is this matchup going to end up? Let's find out what they think about right now... There's some real hostility going on! Oy, Jurina! You've made yourself known to the world as the cool 12-year-old. But isn't it true that you STILL can't sleep on your own? If there's no manager or a member around, you can't sleep on your own. You can't even wake up on you own. THAT CRAP DOESN'T SUIT YOU AT ALL! [Sign: That's the truth] Aren't you growing up now... Would you mind acting a little more of your age?
[Sign: A middle schooler in 4 months time] How the hell did you find all that out? What about you, huh? Even though you're OLDER than me, whenever you can't decide your own hairstyle, you are sobbing your little eyes out... Stop crying like a little WUSS!! [Sign: Beaten at her own game!] She sure said it! Your eyes! Your eyes are pretty red, Ono! [Sign: Quite a shock] - Looks like they both were serious with their stuff! - Don't cry! Don't cry! So let's take a look at what the players have answered! Place your bets! Matsui, Mats... Oh, it's Ono and Ono. Ono seems to be popular. You answered Ono? During that last mic performance, she seems to have lost, but with the regret, she probably will change into another person once she gets the stick in her hand. Let's get the tense Pokadobo Battle on the way! Jurina, do you best! How's it going to turn out? No way...! She caught her head! [Sign: Direct faceshot!]
Matsui, keep going! This is Matsui's chance! Go for it! Drop her! Matsui! [Sign: Novice] Matsui, take her out! She's clinging on the log, now! The scared stiff novice Ono was knocked out by the younger Matsui! It's Matsui's win! The team who answered correctly was team "Nice to meet you"! Was Matsui too strong? I guess nothing has changed from before... I'm sorry... You don't have to apologize like that! The winner Matsui... is taking it easy, it seems! [Sign: Strength to spare] - How was it? - At school there's the play equipment, right? It's like I got to pick from them, and then swinging this stick... It was just like back in school. Dunno what the hell you're on about, but keep it up! Well, in any case, it's Matsui's victory! And our next game is this! Who's the number one Speed Queen? One-on-one Quickest Sneeze Battle! In this game we test for the explosive power and the gutsiness an artist needs to overcome your shyness in front of a larger audience.
In this match, twisted paper, pepper, and brushes are used to produce the fastest sneeze to win the match. Bring on the fighters! In the red corner, we have the Kagoshima-born Reaction Idol, Kashiwagi Yuki! Can her big reactions bring her a big victory today? Her challenger in the blue corner is the Nagoya born "Dreamlike 17", Kitahara Rie! Today she's going to entice your heart with her nose! - There we go. - I'd like to ask for your thoughts... Oy, Eel Dog! [note: This is a character from "Tensai Bakabon"] You're publicly so diligent, aren't you? So does your personality change whenever you get hungry? During a lesson on which everyone was trying their best, TUTTING your lips, staying in bed out of SPITE, this SELF OBSESSED woman! Now it's the deeply offended peer's turn to speak! [Sign: Peers wicked battle!] Oy! Damn you and your cutesy little neat image! And still behind my back you're going: "Kitahara or Sashihara, huh? Well, in overall, Sashihara's the clearly better one, right?
DIDN'T YOU SAY THAT!? [Sign: BIG counterattack] You better stop with that sort of malicious crap, Black Marimokkori! [ Note: A character whose name is a pun ] [ Note: marimo are green algae clusters, and mokkori is slang for an erection ] Black Marimokkori!? [ Note: marimo are green algae clusters, and mokkori is slang for an erection ] That was amazing! It's another dead heat! Eel Dog VS Black Marimokkori! I'm not sure we should be laughing at a time like this... Let's take a peek what everyone answered! [Sign: Don't worry, they're good friends] Place your bets! Okay, we'll leave this one for last... From the middle: "Black Marimokkori", "Eel Dog" and lastly, "Gold Marimokkori". Didn't we just decide to call her 'BLACK Marimokkori'? But the thing is... When she eventually sneezes, she might turn to a golden color, right? What the HELL are you on about? Which one of these girls can bring forth a quicker sneeze!? Kitahara's gone with the twisted paper. Kashiwagi has chosen the pepper. That doesn't work at ALL... Kitahara already looks like she's about to sneeze! - A little more vigorously... - That's right. Try jamming it way back. She's adding pepper to the tissue, now! Is she putting... she put it in her nose!
This is something else. Idol's are cramming tissue up their noses... Kitahara's got double action! It's coming, it's coming, Kitahara! Keep going, Kitahara! You're doing it! Is it coming? It looks like it! [Sign: It's coming!?] It's itching, it's itching... JUST A LITTLE MORE! Just a little more... [Sign: Feint!?] Just a little more and that would have been it! It's not even close to coming! - Black Marimokkori is in too deep! - She is, isn't she!? Just push it harder! THERE IT IS! Kitahara is the winner! Relying entirely on her twisted paper, Kitahara grabs a magnificent win! Our next game is this! Who is the most popular member. Survey Battle Royale! We surveyed 30 of Kabukicho's 'Elder sisters'! [ Note: Kabukicho is a sex district ] And the question? "Who amongst these four looks the most wicked?" Who will end up as number one? You'd HATE to get chosen as number one here, right? These 'elder sisters' have brutally honest opinions, right? So let's take a look at what everyone has answered!
Place your bets! Shinoda, Matsui and Shinoda. - You wrote your own name, Ms. Shinoda. - I did. From those photos, you might get a pretty dark picture of me... How does it really look like? - Ash-colored? - She wasn't expecting that... - So, Kiyoto-team... - Maeda told me that Shinoda would win it hands down. But I never said that. - Kiyoto, why did you claim that? - I thought it would make things interesting. Asked of 30 Kabukicho's 'Elder sisters'! "Who looks the most wicked of the bunch?" Probably Akimoto Sayaka. She pretty much the kind who'd be after money. Shinoda Mariko. She might take advantage of her cutesy image. She looks wicked. Shinoda. She gives off this flirtatious look from that photo. Matsui Rena. She looks like a respectful young lady, but I bet she used to spit in other's indoor shoes back at highschool. I think Shinoda Mariko looks the most... wicked.
Maybe Rena. Probably Kana. I wonder why... maybe because she looks like she would trick rich men from their money. Kobayashi Kana. Akimoto Sayaka. She looks like she's after a sugar daddy. Shinoda Mariko. From these girls, probably Shinoda Mariko. Kobayashi Kana. Akimoto Sayaka. The shape of her mouth makes her look really cheeky. Matsui, probably. Akimoto Sayaka. I was thinking of Kobayashi. Rena. Akimoto. Shinoda Mariko. Maybe Sayaka. Rena. Kana, it's got to be her! Kobayashi Kana. Akimoto Sayaka. Kobayashi Kana. Absolutely Kobayashi Kana. Akimoto Sayaka. Maybe Sayaka. It's Sayaka. We're determined on Sayaka.
That means that Akimoto Sayaka ended up as number one! All my photos look like this, though! Look like what? We didn't use those kind of photos! Why? WHY did they pick me!? WHY!? [Sign: She broke down!] That gave the Kiyoto and Maeda pair the overall victory for this week! On the 21st of February... I'd like to inform you at this time, that I, Oshima Mai, will be graduating from AKB48! The central member way back from the initial line up, Oshima Mai, will graduate during the concert on 25th and 26th this month. For the occasion, Oshima Mai has prepared a final message for all the show's viewers. I'd like to take this opportunity to announce my graduation after three and a half years in AKB48. So for the members, who are always doing their best, and the staff, who were always supporting me, and to all the cheering fans, I'd like to express my thanks form the bottom of my heart.
Nice working with you, Oshima! Thank you so much... - Fujie is like a little sister to Oshima, isn't that right? - That's right. During our performances, I felt really poor with my MC-ing. So whenever Maimai had her turn at it, she would give me her place. Little by little... I became better at it... and I have only Maimai to thank for that. - That was nice of her. - Yeah... We go to eat together, and things like that... because we're so close. If Oshima has any parting words for Fujie, you now have the opportunity to say them... Well, Fujie... You were so dependant on others at first that I was really worried about you for that. But just keep depending on others from now on, and do your very best in the future. I will. Thank you, Oshima Mai! Everyone here at AKBingo will keep supporting you. But Sata had something to add!
For Oshima, who has contributed so much to the show, we have planned something emotional as your leaving present! I'm happy! We've prepared you this! Oshima Mai! Graduation Marathon! The people at NiTelevision thought a marathon would surely be an emotional last project for you. - A marathon is an emotional project, now? - When NiTelevision talks about emotion, it means marathon! - A logical segueway, then. - That's perfectly logical! That means Oshima Mai will get a very own graduation project! The last run of tears. Half Marathon Challenge! And furthermore! We'd like some other members to run with you, too. The first one we'd like to ask... is Ohori! We'd like Ohori to graduate too. Yeah, by running. No, actually... [Sign: That's a lie.] - You'd be there to run along Oshima... - But I haven't got any physical strength, I'm already 25. - But we've already got an OK from your manager! Isn't that right? - Thank you for this opportunity! Don't go "Thank you for this opportunity!", you!
We've already worked out the schedule for you, so don't worry about that. Also, there's one more person. Who'd we'd like to run. And that one person is.... Akimoto! Ohori and Akimoto will join the ranks too! Can the trio actually finish the race!? AKBingo! advances to Fuji Television! An urgent plan to join forces will be unveiled! Thanks for waiting! Here's Watariroka Hashiritai's brand new song! Motivation fireworks are being set off in my heart I feel like I'm going to shoot off into space I'm 100% motivated I'm going to try giving it everything I've got Nothing will happen if you're always comparing yourself with others If you do your very best
right up until the end, I'll praise you I was blue until recently I'm OK now Motivation fireworks They blow away any worries and make a smile bloom I'm 100% motivated It's magic that makes being up in the clouds more fun Motivation fireworks I'm waiting for them to be lit That's how we'll face our hearts towards each other I'm 100% motivated The sparkling, beautiful fireworks are better than any tears
