I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of all this not-quite-winter-not-quite-spring crap. Frankly, I’m almost looking forward to the sweltering nonsense that is Canadian summer. No more grey skies and rain and snow and then ice and wind and BLEH!
Let’s watch Morning Musume be all weird and adorable and awesome (in swimsuits)!
Alo-Hello6 isn’t as exciting as some of their past ventures. It’s got exactly three “events” one of which is just them drawing. They don’t get to play around in the pool at all this time and half the dvd is just them posing by themselves.
Which is all well and good (they are beautiful, after all), but if what you really love are the activities then you might be underwhelmed.
Fortunately, our fresh, young members leap into everything with gusto and gave me not much to say on the dvd as a whole, but some spectacular caps.
Let’s close the blinds and pretend summer is here!
First, let’s begin with the more exciting event: the water-gun battle.
The team has to protect a clothesline with several strips of paper hanging off of it, while the other team attacks them with water guns trying to knock the papers down for points. The attacking team can’t move forward too much and the defending team…well, they just have to endure it.
And no, Shige and Winky do NOT participate except for the punishment game.
There is the Winky team, with Ace, Miss Derp, Masaki-kins and BOSS clearly anxious to get the prize.
And there is the Shige team, Ayumin, Fuku-hime and Zukki, who are more interested in Eri-pon’s… um, prize(-?).
Clearly Shige has taught them priorities.
The first battle rages and takes out Eri-pon’s target, so she does the only thing she can think of to draw their fire-
And sure enough, that’s where they aim.
Masaki-kins WON! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!
Notice the team doesn’t even try to control her (cause GOOD LUCK!).
Nevermind that. Shige’s team is ready to rock.
E: “I don’t know how to work this gator…”
F: “I’m gonna throw this!”
A: “YEAH! Go big or go HOME muthafu-”
Z: “Got TWO guns. Fo yo FAYCE!!!”
Um…Derpie? You forgot a target!!!
Ayumin: I don’t think she’s even aiming at this point.
D: “Doh, you guys wait, I forgot to guard that target…”
D: “Heh, heh, heh, whoopsies.”
R (whispering): “Just stay still and pretend you don’t see her.”
Even with all that, Shige’s team still loses and Winky takes great pleasure in telling them that the punishment is blasting Captain Shige with water-guns.
Loving the identical expressions of kawaii-uh-oh on Fuku-Shige there…
Poor brave Shige gets ready.
But never fear! The Shige team won’t let their captain suffer alone.
Punishment game dissolves quickly into this. And check out Zukki just straight up blocking the gun with her HANDS.
There is a section after some posing where the younger gens try to get Shige and Winky to say or do certain things without them realizing that something is going on, but it’s sort of awkward and dull so there isn’t much to say.
There are some nice expressions though.
Derpie…there are just no words for this one.
Masaki-kins scrunchy-nose smile!!!
Shige and Winky slowly realizing there’s a reason the kouhai were acting so awkward.
W: “I think we won.”
S: “Was BOSS hitting on me?”
B: “Who me? No, that wasn’t me pinching your-”
W: “Woooa, so not cool.”
B: “Well, you just had them sitting out there like that. What am I supposed to do?”
S: “I really am that cute, aren’t I?”
Let’s move along.
The longest portion of the dvd aside from posing is devoted to the (for lack of a better term) broken telephone drawing game.
Started by Eri-pon.
Who clearly has had a few too many.
Masaki-kins makes adorable “wtf” faces.
M: “Ok, so I think, like, the cliff is sort of…like a line of, um…and then the people…um, mermaids…”
M: “Wait, what did I draw again?”
B: “The frack is this??”
B: “Yeah, this is all you’re getting from me, guys.”
F: “When I get confused I just think, ‘what would Shige do’? Then I think about bunnies!”
F: “I don’t think I was supposed to draw bunnies though…”
W: “Look, I’m not drawing anything until I get my cosmopolitan!”
W: “Hey! GRADUATE IS GETTIN THIRSTY OVER HERE!”
W: “Right and make sure it has that little umbrella – wait, do I have to draw something now, or-?”
W: (several drinks later) *burp* “There! I drew-s-s-that.”
S: (thinking) “Bunnies, bunnies, bunnies, bunnies, meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, bunnies, bunnies. bunnies-”
S: “All done!”
Z: “Ahhh, riida was thinking about bunnies, wasn’t she?”
Z: “Wait, what- why is the stick person naked?”
Z: “There we go! May as well go with it.”
A: “Oooh, the sun is saying hellooooo…”
A: “So I drew the sun saying hello to a naked stick figure with a sun-”
Ayumin – so awkward and so proud.
However, Derpie does not want.
She actually scribbles for so long that a dis-embodied hand grabs the paper away from her.
Even when indignant, Miss Iikubo still manages to maintain her derp face.
I’m really not sure where she got this from…but she seems pretty happy.
How is she so pretty and so strange looking at the same time??
This is the last drawing before Riho has to finish it off and guess what the original topic was. Based on that.
Ace: “Awww, come ON!”
D: “Heh, heh, heh. Whoopsies.”
Ace doesn’t guess correctly (at least I don’t think she does; I THINK the answer was tanning, but who knows) and the girls try to figure out where they went wrong exactly.
W: “How is this not clear!? She’s got a FREAKIN’ bow!!!” *burp*
Eri-pon is still proud of her drawing. Masaki-kins looks adorably disgusted though.
Did I mention these two are so adorable it’s not even fair?
And now, to finish us off – some awesome pretty posing photos (because that was half of this whole thing).
Getting Winky out of the way.
Just a few more months!! XD
I know I kept calling her Derpie in this post, but still. Iikubo is really pretty.
I love the girls in these white dresses.
Zukki is beautiful.
And adorable. HIGH FIVE everybody!
Fukuhime = lovely.
I like that she seems to know how pretty she is, but it makes her shy. Part of me wants her to embrace it and part of me feel charmed that she’s (or at least she acts) so bashful about it.
Looking pretty (like a BOSS)!
Ayumin seemed a bit uncomfortable with the camera but she has a very sweet smile and her hair looks really pretty in these shots.
Shige has the most beautiful neck…
Eri-pon is a joy to cap.
So is Masaki-kins.
Nothing to say here, except Ace is pretty.
More Alo-Hello fun is on the way!!
