What's up everyone? I've got a couple of videos for you today. The first one is another episode of Shabekuri 007, this time featuring the actress, Aragaki Yui. She is very popular at the moment in Japan, and is probably one of the most well known young stars these days. I hear that she's also quite popular in other Asian countries too. Well anyway, you'll get to know a little bit about her in the video so I'll stop writing about her now. But as I said, it's only a little bit, as the Shabekuri guys go kind of crazy in this one. Well, they always do, but more than usual probably.

24 HOUR TV
The 24 Hour TV that Ueda was talking about at the start of the show is a day that happens once a year, when the TV channel, Nihon TV, play their programs live for 24r hours. During this time they all wear yellow shirts.
GIRI GIRI 007
GIRI GIRI 007 is a corner of the show where the members ask the guest risky questions such as what celebrity they hate or what celebrity they had/would like to have sex with etc... Although they don't HAVE to answer it, generally the members will try to pressure them into giving an answer. Because their answers may affect other people, they usually put a beeping noise over the name so you can't hear what they say. However there have been instances of the audience letting it slip over the internet or being able to tell what the person is saying from the movement of their mouth. Sometimes they just accidentally slip it out themselves as on live versions, they must manually switch on the beeping noise.
They write all the questions on a piece of paper first and then
decide which ones are 'Giri Giri Yes' or 'Giri Giri No'. Giri Giri means 'on the verge'/risky
Matsuoke Deluxe is a popular TV personality and gossip columnist. She is a cross dressing homosexual male and has become famous for his/her scathing comments on other people and quick come backs. Oh, and probably because of her/his extreme body size (Deluxe size lol).
The members gave themselves new nicknames in this episode.
Arietty: Is the name of the main character from the Ghibli film 'The Borrower Arrietty'.
Tokki~: Tokki~ is actually the name of Tokui's alter-ego character, a gay fashion columinst. He often appears on Shabekuri 007.
Fuki~na: Fukuda's nickname was copied the style of Minami Akina aka Aki~na. She is a popular model/ gravure idol.
Reset Generation...? Was the reaction of everyone when Ueda called them that. The 'Reset Generation', refers to the people that have become so used to playing video games where you can just reset if you lose to start over again, that they think that applies to real life too.
