Gakkou e ikou! MAX 2007.02.20

学校へ行こう!MAX ~ 2007.02.20

Everyone's favorite show tiiiiime :D
Download it
here! (Thanks as always, Nermal!)

This week, we have.... MORE gymnastics! Only this time it's Rhythmic Gymnastics!
Now, I'm not all that well versed in gymnastics, but let me say:

To really enjoy this segment, you MUST download this episode and
see for yourself!
I'm going to work on putting some video in here
so that maybe you all can see it in action ;]

This week we have Sakamoto and Morita visiting the school.
Well-established fact: V6 + girl's school = screaming all around.
"Girl's schools are great!" XD

They greet the rhythmic gymnastics club!
Who pretty much resume their practice right after saying hello XD

The teacher than explains what exactly Rhythmic Gymnastics is!
A sport relying heavily on flexibility and beauty that is performed
set to music using 5 different items (pictured here)

First, the girls demonstrate what they do for stretches!
Commence girls twisting their bodies into freakishly abnormal positions!

Go asks this one girl: How old are you?
17, she says!
"17?! You shouldn't be doing these kinds of things!" XDD
EH?! lol.

Watching the amazing things that these girls can do, Go mentions
that their flexibility
is, after all, the result of YEARS worthing of training.
So of course, the next thing he says?


So of course, they try and do some stretches. Emphasis on try.

Leaderrrrrrr don't hurt yourself XD

The next girl does an *amazing* trick with the hoola hoop, which of course
a screenshot can't show. How amazing? amazing that Leader suggests they try doing it at their next concert, LOL
Next the girls show off their group performance (must! watch!),
which gets V6 all fired up to try :D

Here's another, uh, highlight (?) of their performance:
Yeah, Go pretty much rolled all the way over onto Sakamoto's leg. LOL. XDDD

And Go's dramatic ENDING POSE!
They pretty much rocked it, including the extra-hard trick of having
both of them jump through connected hoola-hoops at the same time.

Next up is a summary of the FANMAIL CORNER in full!
Only, it's not exactly fanmail. These are letters that come in to the show that request that V6 come visit them for whatever reason (we need your help&support with this/that/whatever!)

Here we have our boys sorting them into three piles:
Will Go Visit, Might Go Visit, Will Not Visit
First up is a letter from a 5th grader in Fukuoka!
Okada reads: "When my best friend Mei-chan was reading manga, my friend
made fun of her and said some pretty mean things. Mei-chan looked really sad,
so we want to apologize to her, but we also have a dream".

LOL what?! Ensue confusion, and Ken goes: "She totally changed the subject!"

Okada continues: "Our dream is to explore Tokyo and visit Tokyo Disneyland.
So, we'd like to apologize at Tokyo Disneyland".

Ken: "What the heck?!" XD Go: "Ahh, clever.."

Okada reads on: "Then, we were thinking, If someone from V6 were to come,
who would we want it to be? Firstly, we'd definitely want Morita-san to come.
After that we weren't sure who to choose between Inohara-san and Miyake-san, so....
Inohara-san, please come with us!"

Morita: She should apologize on her own! *drops into the Will Not Visit box*

The next letter is from a mother who writes about her elementary school daughter!
Inohara reads: "I'm writing for the first time. I'm writing because I'd like you to read these poems written by my daughter who's in second grade. She wrote a lot of poems, saying she'd like to make her debut. I thought, Could my daughter be a genius? and sent you her poems for you to see. She wrote these without the guidance of me or any other adult."

The poems are apparently pretty impressive, considering an elementary student wrote them. However, there was one that caught Inocchi's eye...
♪ Bye bye, thank you, good bye~ my dear lover~ you were a good girl~ but still a sly woman♪
Ken: Where have I heard this before?!

Inocchi: Let's read it all together now!
*V6 starts singing*

Sakamoto drops it into the Might Go Visit box, saying,
"Well, it's possible that we might go and tell her" XD

Not going to go into the Hadaka Matsuri this time since this is far too long as it is!


Comments are loved ♡

V6 reading the mail=Thank you VERY much for translating! I'm surprised how well I guessed on the context. I knew Inocchi was chosen over Miyake for something and Miyake felt rejected. XD XD

Great commentary as always. Thank you!
