Arashi no Shukudai-kun #010

Aired On: December 4th, 2006

The guest in this episode is Sugita Kaoru, who've worked with Arashi on 24hr TV before. Jun had cried during that time, and she said that her opinion of him became more favourable after that. Her homework to Arashi/the audience is to research on various foods that uses collagen (according to my sister it doesn't really work, but from what I've seen in variety shows Japanese women really love food with collagen?). Aiba became the presenter, while he and Sho went around testing food with three women. There was a really funny scene when Aiba smeared collagen sashimi over one of the women's faces, lol.

During the image section of the show, like in the previous couple of episodes, the conversation gets interesting. Sugita-san admitted to having a bad image, and said that she was called the King of Love Hotels when she was younger. This led to them talking about love hotels, and when Ohno seemed a little too interested, Nino joked that he (Ohno) was aiming to be the 2nd generation King of Love Hotels. ^^ Ogura-san asked Sugita-san to give advice to Arashi as a veteran and older woman, and she said that she hoped they don't get trapped by a bad woman. She even gave advice on romance, Sugita Kaoru Style - catch their attention with your eyes, attack when they're weak, and aim for people who seem like they've broken down. In order words, the timing has to be perfect? XP

 In the experiments corner (or, like Shi-chan says, the continuation of A no Arashi), Sho and Aiba try to find out if it would be faster to travel on ice by foot or by bicycle. They were supposed to complete one lap on a skating rink, with Sho walking on foot and Aiba riding a bicycle. Aiba kept falling down, so Sho won the race. Conclusion: please walk over ice instead of riding bicycles.

This is another one of those episodes that I can't play on my Mac, so there're no screen caps. :/

Maybe I was spoiled by the previous two episodes, but this ep didn't stand out as much. I'm not sure if this ep is the start of them not going on field trips for their investigation reports, or if it's just that they didn't do it in this episode, since the guest's (Yasu Megumi) request was for them to find out different ways to serve natto. Maybe it's the subject matter that made this less interesting than the last two episodes, since I really am not too keen on the idea of natto, haha. Anyway, even though it's not a memorable episode, it was still funny and good to watch.

I love the experiment at the end where Ohno makes those - uhm, I'm not sure what they're called, the subs said "interior decorating colliding balls" (one bad thing about me is that if an ep has subs, I stop listening and just read the words - even if I'm watching an English show. I read everything that can be read, but am a bad listener.) Anyway, back to the topic... Ohno makes those, er, "interior decorating colliding balls", and they experiment on how many balls they could add before it stops working. They reached up til a hundred balls when Ohno announced that he only made up to that much. Anyway, technically if made with the right kind of balls it could have an indefinite number of balls and still work, but Ohno's should work til up to 200 balls. I find these experiments a little on the bizarre side (who would think of researching the kind of stuff they did?) but a lot more fun than some of the interview/eating parts.

Aired On: November 20th, 2006

I swear, this particular episode had me LOL-ing like crazy. It just gets better and better. I can't take any screencaps for this ep, unfortunately, because I can't play it on my computer (but can play it on my DVD player, so I watched it there instead). The guest is actress Muroi Shigeru, and her homework for Arashi is for them to find out about underground places and shelters, etc. I've always found shelters interesting (okay, I find way too many things interesting so it doesn't really count) and the idea of underground temples/churches is just so cool - plus the temple talked about in this show is by Tadao Ando (♥!).

Usually I'm not really interested in the image part of Shukudai-kun, but the conversation following this particular episode's image submissions is just too precious. While talking about growing spurts during puberty, Nino claimed that there were times when he would suddenly feel pain when he was out with friends, and when they asked what was wrong, he'd say "I'm just growing." (>_<) And then everyone (especially Aiba) started asking Muroi-san about girl's puberty and asking questions like "do breasts grow together at the same time?" (what, instead of growing one by one?) and other silly stuff that had me rolling on the floor laughing. *wipes tears* I swear, this particular conversation reminds me of K because we've actually had this conversation before, which only made me laugh even more while watching this episode.

For the experiments corner, they try to find out if paper would be soaked in different speeds if dipped in different types of liquid. Conclusion: paper dipped in hot water gets soaked quicker than that soaked in normal water, soda water, milk, or oil. See, who says that television doesn't teach you anything? Haha.

Aired On: November 13th, 2006

Before I realise it, this show is becoming more and more entertaining. (^_^) The guest in this episode is actress Matsui Kazuyo, whose homework for Arashi is for them to find vegetables that are good for you. When asked what this meant exactly (aren't all vegetables supposed to be good for you?) she explained that she meant vegetables that are grown with love, and without the use of chemicals. The first two places Nino introduced, she already knew about, which was funny. She seems quite fussy when it comes to her vegetables, but judging from the reaction of Arashi when they tried "normal" vegetables and "good" vegetables, I guess there is a difference in taste? Well, I remember the first time I ate strawberries in Japan; I had the distinct impression that I was eating "real" strawberries and that the ones I had in Malaysia only looked like strawberries but didn't taste like them at all. Maybe it's something like that?

In the weird experiments corner, they divide into two teams (Arashi vs. Matsui Kazuyo + Ogura-san) and stacked different kinds of tofu on top of each other in order to see which kind could be stacked higher. Arashi were on the silk tofu team, while Matsui Kazuyo & Ogura-san were on the cotton tofu team. I think it's pretty obvious from the start that the cotton tofu would win? :p

Episode 6! Only 172 episodes to go, hahaha...

The guest in this ep is actress/singer Suzuki Sarina, whom I really loved in Kimi wa Petto. Of course, she had played Koyuki's rational best friend and I liked that, so I was surprised to find out that she has this image of being a little on the idiotic side. Since she's known for not being bad at maths, Arashi lets her show her intellectual side, and she impresses them with her English.

Instead of doing the food experiments, in this episode the binocular-glasses return - this time they roped Ogura-san along and they tried playing kickball wearing the glasses. Hilarity ensues, as usual XP

It's time for another episode of Shukudai-kun! By the way, even though I'm posting these episode re-watch entries in a row, actually I watched them during the weekend of my Raya holidays, but need to hold my posts until I'm back home and could take screencaps. :/

The guest is singer Wada Akiko. I seem to remember seeing her in a lot of variety shows when I was in Japan, although I don't know if it's really true or it's just the impression I get, since she's a memorable sort of person. Her homework for Arashi is for them to find different ways to serve blowfish, which Sho and Aiba investigates. I have to say that despite my dislike for seafood, I wouldn't mind trying any of the food introduced in this episode because they look like they taste good. All in all, this has been a fun episode to watch (^_^)

Liquid nitrogen makes its first appearance in Shukudai-kun in this ep XD

Arashi no Shukudai-kun #004

Aired On: October 23rd, 2006

The guest in this episode is Otoha, who had acted with Sho in Yoiko no Mikata and with Jun (kind of?) in Kimi wa Petto. I first saw her in Gokusen 2, and thought that she was annoyingly cute. Now I think she's just cute. I guess I have a soft spot for tennen characters. XD

This is the first episode where the guest's homework for Arashi is not to research on food. Instead, Jun and Ohno researched on unusual beauty salons. Jun tried a gold leaf massage - yeah, my first reaction was (0_o) - while Ohno went for a freezing gas therapy, to which I don't even know how to comment. :p It's cute how Jun asked Ohno "am I beautiful?" after his massage was done, and how he kept asking Ohno if it hurts. Juntoshi FTW! Haha... anyway, the therapy they brought back with them was completely different - "doctor fish therapy" where small fish pick off layers of old skin from people's feet. This therapy was actually very popular here a few years back. My brother went for it, and said it really tickles. :p But Otoha was scared of fish and couldn't put her feet in the tank! In the end it was Sho who demonstrated for her.

In the food experimentsLet's Torture Ogura-san section, Aiba invents various new types of jam, which, frankly speaking, are things I would never want on my bread - including natto-jam and kimchi-jam.
