Advice from ‘Akimoto-sensei’ + Twin Tower Clip (Mujack 2010.10.29)
(*Before I start, know that what I’m not fluent in Japanese so what I’ve written down here is only what I think they might’ve said. So if there’s any mistakes I apologize!)
Some funny part I like from this Mujack episode featuring AKB members as the guest. For the first topic, a VTR is shown. From what I’m looking at the staff of Mujack actually had trouble coming up for what they should do for this AKB guest starring episode. Then someone like suggested “Why not ask someone who knows about AKB48 for advice?” That someone in mind turned out to be Akimoto-sensei.
And with that, one member from Mujack’s staff goes to visit and get advice from Akimoto-sensei.
The members watching expected to see the one and only producer of AKB being shown…but it turns out…the ‘Akimoto-sensei’ they were talking about was in fact none other than Sayaka.
Haha what a surprise for the members. They’re going “Eh? That’s not Akimoto-sensei!”
But of course they should’ve expected this. After all, Sayaka also does have the name Akimoto right? And of course I guess Mujack wanted to ask advice from a friendly face who happened to be a former Mujack assistant.
Some of Sayaka’s comments about the members that were chosen to appear in the AKB special episode were funny. Like how I think the staff asks Sayaka which of the members appearing she sees as someone she doesn’t like and Sayaka answers Sasshi. The narrator then says “Poor Sashihara.”
Then Sayaka asks the Mujack staff member something like “Right now Takamina’s the assistant right? Does she fail a lot?”. Then when the staff didn’t respond she goes “Ah so she does fail…” Sayaka knows her fellow AKB members well doesn’t she?
Luv how they’re addressing Sayaka as ‘sensei’ the whole time. She sounds much like a professional now. Also that weird funny face Sayaka makes is so hilarious XD
To finish, Sayaka says a message for the show’s host in the imitation of Maya Miki (one of Sayaka’s best imitations). For the rest of that episode, the show and the members then did segments that Sayaka herself specifically suggested they use for the special.
Also, for Twin Tower fans, near the end, the Mujack staff wants to thank Sayaka for the advice earlier and actually sent a staff to see Sayaka with a surprise announcement for her while she and Sae are I think recording for an Ukkari Channel episode. This probably was when the staff told Sayaka that she was chosen to be a new regular of Waratte Iitomo.
Then when the staff noticed Sae, she thought she was a friend of Sayaka’s from outside AKB, to which Sayaka corrected “No she’s a member” and Sae introduced herself properly.
And when the staff asked Sayaka to say something related to Mujack, Sayaka goes “Eh? What is this?” to Sae then Sae answers back.
Then to end it, we hear Sayaka say her new soon to be used alot word…”Iitomo!”
Ah how I wish I can understand Japanese fluently.
