▪ LOL RANDOM SKIT WHERE SHINGO IS THE LADY'S SON AND YAMAPI IS HIS BROTHER!
▪ omg, Yanagihara Kanako shows up! And she has many different skits throughout the ep
▪ (for those who don't know, she plays Yamapi's love interest in Monsters)
▪ At one point, she (as a store worker) fawns over Yamapi.
▪ THEN IT SWITCHES and Yanagihara acts as a customer and then YAMAPI acts as one of the store workers. They compliment him on being an ikemen and tell him he could be a celeb. LOL
▪ There's this whole workout dance thing. Love that it's all to JE songs!
▪ Yamapi/Shingo teach the others the choreo for the chorus to Monster
▪ SHINGO LOOKS A LITTLE CRAZY WITH HIS MAKEUP; he even goes "With that makeup, it was like I was a monster!"

▪ The random CG in this PV gets kind of creepy--like Ohkura's face as his eyes. UNNECESSARY
▪ Why are the boys dressed up like proper English LITTLE boys?
▪ The song itself is eh. Don't think I'd listen to it of my own doing.
▪ The dance choreo seems to be harder for them as one by one, they mess up.
▪ Best dance mess up is Ryo flinging his arm out so hard that he smacked Yasu in the face.
▪ It startled Ryo so much he couldn't remember his moves for a second.
▪ LOL to Ohkura forcing a wooden spoon down Yasu's mouth. XD so mean

▪ Apparently the staff that was filming that part also cried. T.T That is the cutest thing ever.
▪ Subaru throws a little temper tantrum that ends up just them surprising Yasu for his birthday! SO CUTE.
▪ Matsubara Shinichi presents Sugohachi
▪ Sugohachi ends up being a game where the floor of Kyocera is made into the board in the shape of an 8!
▪ Each member starts at some point and have to move around the 8 until you return to your starting point.
▪ When they get to a point, they have challenges they have to accomplish~
▪ Eg, having to kiss the camera for 8 sec, have the ENTIRE STADIUM do the wave in under 2 mins, etc.
▪ Subaru has to come up with what TWL stands for (he makes up "Terminal wonder long time ago")
▪ Meanwhile Maru makes up for FTO ("Fuji-san tamatama ooki-gatta." (or however that last part is spelled romanized XD))
▪ They get random prizes attached to songs--
▪ Yoko gets his with the song "Eden" and is at first SUPER CONFUSED. It ends up being oden.
▪ THEY PLAY ONIGOKKO!!!! They have to remain uncaught for two minutes and Maru/Hina end up escaping! (Hina cheats though lol)
▪ (Yoko makes a "Boys on the Run" reference in regard to Maru being uncaught.)
▪ On the spot, Ohkura is given a blank letter--which means he has to say honestly what he feels about a random member. (He chooses Yoko.)\
▪ For something so impromptu, it's a rather long LONG letter. Very nice and moving~ ♥
▪ Maru ends up winning! And starts blowing kisses at everyone, lolol.
▪ Maru's prize ends up being the Matsubara Shinichi costume that Subaru usually wears--then has to change right THERE XD
▪ Find out the top 5 most requested songs: 5) Mugendai, 4) BJ, 3) Cool magic city, 2) Heavenly Psycho
▪ K8 are surprised by choice of 'Cool magic city' and some express that they love the song too!
▪ They realize (before revealing #1) that none of #s2-5 are single songs--Ohkura wonders if they've been choosing the wrong A-sides.
▪ They end up performing #1!!!! ♥ Osaka Romanesque~ ♥

▪ If they said no, apparently the only alternative was gals. DYING.
▪ Shintaro and Takaki answer no and Takaki explains that he just wants someone more adult-like which Shintaro says ojou-sama girl are a little stiff.
▪ Another question is if they wanted to talk to the girls more.

▪ Riisa (and then later, they say Massu as well) makes the set really comfortable!
