180610 Nogizaka Under Construction Highlights (Maiyan vs Toad)

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a Nogichuu hi-lite. Actually I was about to scrap this one because I was getting all distracted by an unstoppable fur ball biting machine and non-stop doing some errands here in my parents’ house. But since I’ve finished timing last time, I think it’s way too wasteful to scrap so here I present you yet another subbed (LQ) video of last night’s Nogichuu’s highlight.

It’s all about picking which one you think is better from two nightmare choices. It was kind of unexpected that they did one game for the whole episode. Also, it was a little confusing when Maaya started to solve the problem of the game so I’ll just skip that part.

The 1st game is,

“Which one you don’t want to put on your hands? A. Scorpion B. Toad”

For me, I definitely don’t want to put on a scorpion on my hands. Toad is waaaaay much easier for me to hold.

Speaking of a toad, this episode is actually reminiscing me of Nogidoko episode 100.

Toad from Nogidoko 100

Toad from last night’s Nogichuu.

They’re equally big, I think. Let’s see the different when Maiyan holds is.

Nogidoko’s one is bigger, isn’t it?

That’s not only the difference. In Nogidoko 100, Maiyan was all brave and did it promptly.

Comparing to last night Nogichuu, she was being all frightened by the toad either before holding and after holding.

But I found that cute so no complains =))

Is she about to go to another dimension?

I personally like this one the most. Her reactions never fail me to laugh and like her more.

I admire you because even though you’re in distress, you’re still being polite.

Well, then. Enjoy the video!

I’m still feeling emo with Ikoma grad con today. But, here we go.

This week Nogichuu is 20th single hit prayer.

Shitara: We didn’t hear details about the hit prayer this time. Looks like Ikoma went for it.

Shitara: Ikoma, how was it?

Ikoma: If you ask me how was it, it was like the usual.

Himura: I see. So it was rough as usual.

Ikoma: For this single hit prayer, I will do it since this is my last single before I graduate.

Ikoma: Why? Because it’s mount climbing again.

Sign: Mountain until the end.

Ikoma: I also want to teach many things to 3r gen members who carry on (Nogizaka’s) future.

Sign: Ikoma’s last teaching.

Ikoma: We are also having a special guest today.

Minami: Minami is also here~ ❤

Minami: Why? Why?

Minami: Why am I here?

Sign: Unable to comprehend the situation

Minami: Just how many times I should try again to give my best until I get forgiven?

Ikoma: It was like all decided since the time of senbatsu announcement of this single that you will also go for this hit prayer.

Minami: Like in handshake event, fans were like, “Nicely done for the hit prayer!” even though I haven’t gone for it yet. And then I guess I couldn’t do anything but go do the prayer.

Minami: Since Ikoma-chan is graduating after this, I think I will also graduate from doing hit prayer!

Minami: Let’s pass the baton to the 3rd gen.

Lol, I thought she was there for her PB hit prayer!

Ikoma: If Minami-chan is graduating from doing hit prayer, then…shall we choose the new captain for Mount Climbing club from them?

Sign: We are not even members of this club anyway…

The climbing starts!

Staff: (To Ikoma) It’s your last mount climbing in Nogizaka46

Minami: It’s my last as well!

Sign: Persistently wants to retire

Ikoma: Do you know the timing we are doing this now? It’s two days right after 46hours TV.

The climbing was going monotone for 30 minutes.

Minami: Everyone are becoming quite…
Ikoma: This isn’t good!

Ikoma: I’m afraid that we can’t fill the duration for one episode if everyone is being quite like this.

Minami: I will talk a lot today.

Ikoma: That certain person who likes to be tripped isn’t here after all.

Sign: ‘That’ girl isn’t here.

5 hours since they started climbing, they finally face the last rough spot. They have to climb a cliff that almost 90 degrees.

First climber is Minami

Minami: Since I’m the first one to climb, I want everyone to rest assure that this isn’t so frightening.

Words: She is calmly climbing so the 3rd gen members won’t be in anxiety.

Minami-chan… You’ve really grown up… I’m so proud of you ; __ ;

Minami: I’m finished!

2nd climber is Momochan. She did it well without any major difficulties.

3rd climber is Yoda.

4th climber is Kubo.

5th climber is Mizuki

Mizuki: I can’t move my legs well… But I’ll do my best!

She did it!

The last is the captain. With all her feelings for both of the club and the group, she climbed up the cliff.

Ikoma: Some members are first timers, but it seems we climbed in joy so I have no regrets!

All: We wish for 20th single; “Synchronicity” will become a big hit!

Minami: Let’s pray for Ikoma-chan’s graduation as well!

Momochan: Also for her activities after graduation…

Ikoma: Huh? What? You girls will pray for me?

Momochan: We wish for your happiness!!
Ikoma: Thank you!

Shakiism all the way! ❤

20th single hit prayer has been done successfully!

Shitara: Now that the captain for Mount Climbing club is about to leave, Hoshino, don’t you want to be her successor?

Minami: Actually I had other job in my schedule that time. But I didn’t know why it turned into mount climbing schedule.

Minami: My manager said, “Mountain is top priority”

Shitara: How about you, Akimoto?
Manatsu: I’m not sure if a captain who likes to get tripped is fit to lead the club…

Shitara: Say what?

Sign: Verbal slip

Shitara: Asuka-chan is also member of the club, right?

Shitara: Why don’t you be the captain?

Ashu: I have been concealing my existence because I really don’t want to be.

Himura: THIS CLUB IS ABOLISHED!

Shitara: How about action club?

Ikuchan: Scuba diving club too.

Shitara: How are you girls doing with the club?

Ikuchan: I really want to go at least do the dive activities.

Ikuchan: If scuba diving is really impossible,

Ikuchan: I just want us to dive into something.

Shitara: Let’s end this club activities temporarily.

Two different reaction from club leaders. Lol.

 

[SUB] 180419 Monitoring (Ikuta Erika & Shiraishi Mai)

6

A total loyalty to my current OTP.

This time, Ikuchan and Maiyan were tricked by ‘Monitoring’ staff with the title: “What if a sudden unnatural phenomenon occurred?”.

They were startled so many times by so many tricks. It’s so cute to see them startled when they heard a little girl saying “Hey…”

This rock salt tho…

And the most important thing to me is…when they’re like this…

*grins widely*

I will upload the hardsub 720p version tomorrow/saturday. For now, please enjoy the 480p from Dailymotion.

Translator Note:

Carnivore (肉食 Nikushoku)
It has double meanings in this context. Literally it means carnivore. And yes, the context here was about Nogi’s members who like to eat meats. But it also has other meaning. Japanese people often use this phrase to point out people who are aggressive in terms of romance. The antonym for this term is Herbivore (草食 sousoku) that means passive in terms of romance.

180415 Nogizaka Under Construction Highlights

This week episode was the continuation from last week’s; 3rd gen members’ good points in their parents view.

First topic in this episode is:

“My daughter is actually a/an xx”

First time came up was Umezawa Minami that she is actually a scaredy cat and a spoiled kid. She is scared of ghosts especially when she is at her grandma’s house. She said it’s because the house is old styled so that’s why.

And then the MC asked if there’s any other scaredy cat members.

Iku: Asuka-chan couldn’t take a bath alone
Ashu: Because I was really scared of ghosts. But that’s when I was in middle school. I’m fine now to enter the bath alone.

Shitara: So you’re now fine to enter abolished hospital’s bath?
Sign: Everyone wouldn’t ever do that

Ashu: That time, Maiyan and Sayurin were singing and dancing Nogizaka’s songs in front of the bathroom
Sign: Kind older sisters

Ashu: Actually Ikuchan was in the same room but she didn’t join us.
Ikuchan: I had to do bunch of homework that time.

Next is Yamashita Mizuki. Her parent said that her half-asleep state is terrible.

Mizuki’s Mama: When I woke her up in the morning, she said, “Mama, don’t forget to feed the giraffe”

Mizuki: My parent said that I often sleep-talking since I was a kid. Also, when I was sleeping, I hit things near me.

Mizuki: I also often get sleep paralysis. When I woke up, I could see my own feet in front of me.

Sign: Reversed exorcist?

Next is Riria

Riria’s parent: She was disguising as a boy and streaming herself on the internet.

Ikoma-sensei reacted to the word ‘Danso’ (disguising as a male)

Riria’s mother: It should be a secret to her, but I watched the stream.

Riria’s mother: When I said to her, “I’m going out for a while” she was so happy to hear that. I was thinking that she was up for something. 

Riria’s mom: When I was out of the house, I knew that she was streaming herself online.

Wow! Ikemen!

Ikoma-sensei likes it as well.

Shitara: I think he (she) looks like Ikuta.

Ikuchan: Is it because of this pose?

Oh, she doesn’t forget about her alter-ego ❤

Riria: I knew that she was watching after I’ve done the streaming.

Riria: She said, “I watched it!” after I finished.

Next is Renka.

Renka’s parent: She always leaves some of her food everyday.

Riria: What is this?! The temperature differences are extreme!

Shitara: Yours was in intense cold after all.
Sign: 30 degrees below freezing point of a story from her mother.

Renka’s mother: She puts wraps on the dish she didn’t finish and writes “I will definitely eat this tomorrow”.

The proof.

Sign: A heartwarming episode from mother and daughter.

Shitara: Itou, what do you think about this?

Riria: Extreme temperature differences!

Next topic is

My daughter strong points

First up is Kuboshi

Kubo’s parent: (Her strong point is) Her yearning to idols

Kubo’s parent: She really likes to dance since in her childhood.

Kubo’s parent: Her request for her birthday present when she was in elementary school was,

Kubo’s parent: A microphone stand.

Kubo: I really wanted a microphone stand that time. But I didn’t need the mic. That time, AKB’s song was so popular.

MC: Heavy Rotation?
Kubo: Yes.

Hebirote was popular when Kubo was in elementary school? …I feel so old already ._.

Shitara: How about Nogizaka’s song? Is there any that has standing mic in the dance?

Kubo: ‘Sekacchina Katatsumuri’

Kubo: It’s one of my dreams to perform that song.

Up next is Tamachan

Tamami’s parent: Her bravery.

Tamami’s parent: She couldn’t play piano but she candidate herself to be accompanist pianist in a chorus.

Ikuchan’s reaction was like, “Wow…”

Next topic is the opposite; their weakness.

Up first is Denchan

Denchan’s parent: She’s bad in speak out.

And then the studio is back with ‘Yahhoo~!’ championship.

Denchan did well in shouting “Yahho~!”

MC pointed to Minami to do next.

As usual, we get a gentle “Yahho~” from her.

Sign: Please give us a serious one.

Minami is tuning her voice.

Still ended up with gentle “Yahho~<3” from her.

Ikoma-kun and Misa-nee are happy with it anyway lol

MC pointed at Naachan to try next.

She did well that makes the MC shocked.

Sign: Nishino’s best ever “Yahho~”

Himura: Your voice was so loud that makes me a little put off.

Sign: We want you to keep it down.

Next is Reno.

Reno’s parent: She is bad at sports. She couldn’t do a dribble.

But when she was challenged to do the lay up, she succeeded.

Reno: I had a basketball practice at school a month ago. I became good in basketball.

Ikoma’s trauma is awaken here. She is still scared by the ball.

And then Manatsu was challenged as well. But her forms and all were calculated (cunning).

Shitara: Seriously!?

Even Naachan shook her head lol

Ashu was challenged as well. It’s her first time to do a lay up. And her starting form was too weird.

Shitara: Hold up!

Shitara: Are you going for a full speed?

Please see the episode. I can’t upload the .gif because as usual, bad internet connection.

Ashu: Huh? It was different with what I imagined…

Ashu: Huh? That was scary…

She tried again and she almost tripped.

Ashu: Scary…

Ashu: Eww, scary…

Next episode is 20th single hit prayer. Ikoma, Minami, and 3rd gen members (in senbatsu: Yamashi, Kuboshi, Yoda, and Momoko maybe?) are going to do the prayer. Another mount climbing perhaps? I think the reason why these members were chosen are:

  1. Ikoma’s last single and also the captain of mount climbing club
  2. Minami is also praying for her PB hit and also a member of mount climbing club
  3. 3rd gen members in the senbatsu is like an obligatory thing to do.

Looking forward to next episode~

I’m sure you’ll get one someday so please do your best!
(If you still can’t, cheer yourself up by keeping a pet)
Also, please don’t waste too much money.
Do your best so you can bring your families for Hawaii vacation!!”

Yoda: This is embarrassing…
