SASUKE MANIAC June 9, 2008 Sort of liveblog! サスケマニア

This week! I have no idea! Something about a race to Tokyo Tower. Who? What? Where? When? Why? How? Hopefully all these questions will be answered tonight!

Here we go!

Um. OK. Cherry Pie is there. Is that Momomi Yoshino? Moeyan? Who?

Megazone 23! Wait. OK, so a bunch of comediennes have to race through Tokyo's 23 wards and be the first to reach Tokyo Tower. They can spend 10000 yen (about a hundred dollars).

Ippai oppai Cherry pie! I'll let you figure that out for yourself.

The other team is. Um. Well, one of them lost the other. I have no idea who they are. Wait, what the hell are the doing? OK. They need proof of each ward. I have NO IDEA what is going on.

OK. That is Momomi Yoshino. She is part of an owarai idol combi called 相方不在 (Aikatafuzai). Her partner is Sana. OK.

Cherry Pie and Aikatafuzai both have 1 ward each. Cherry Pie decide to ask the police for some help.

On to our third team. Moeyan! They were full body -- update! All three teams have taken pictures in Chiyoda! -- anyway, they wear full body suits (one red and one blue) with the breast area colored "flesh." They've just spend 1500 yen!

Aikatafuzai also ask the police for help. Tokyo Station is in Chiyoda but it's right next to the next ward over, so they don't have to spend any money getting there. Moeyan have realized something! They're off and running! Wait. Aren't they back at the station? Didn't they leave the station? Moeyan have spent 260 yen but they are first to get 2 wards! They are back inside the station now. And they are going to buy all day passes? No idea.

Aikatafuzai is still running through the station (the station is pretty big and confusing.) They find the same map as Moeyan and get their 2nd! But they haven't spent any money yet! Now what? They are going to buy a map? Or are they just going to look at it? OK, they bought it. It cost them 630 yen.

Cherry Pie have also bought a map. It cost them 1089 yen. But they are (unknowingly) still one ward behind. They janken! For what?

All three teams are going in different directions. Cherry Pie (who generally are only wearing bikini tops wear tops in the train) go into Shinagawa. But they are in the wrong place! Is there an order? Ah. Shinagawa Station is in Minato. Not Shinagawa. Is there an order?

Aikatafuzai are on the move! They've got another one!

Moeyan entertain some people! And they've got their third! And their fourth! They are in the lead!

Aikatafuzai have an idea! Certain stations straddle several wards so they can spend money going to one station but get more than one ward each time. They're calling it "the switch back."


Indiana Jones! I just finished watching the series on DVD but I have no idea if I'm actually going to see the new movie in the theater or not. It's soo expensive to go to the movies in Japan.

Aikatafuzai are at Akihabara Station! But their original map wasn't doing them any good. So they have to buy a new one! More money spent!

Our current count is Moeyan has four, Aikatafuzai three and Cherry Pie one.



Next week! More of the Tokyo race! How long will they be able to stretch this out? Find out next week!

For the record, here are our teams:

相方不在 Aikatafuzai (Momomi Yoshino 吉野ももみ and Sana さな)

モエヤン Moeyan (池辺愛 Ikeba Ai and 久保いろは Kubo Iroha)

チェリー☆パイ Cherry Pie (かっすん Kassun and みほ Miho)
