Misshitsu Nazotoki Variety Dashutsu Game DERO! (or for short, Dero) is now my favorite show. First of all, Kanjani8 are semi-regulars so that makes it awesome by default, but believe it or not it gets even better.

A team of Japanese comedians and idols are blindfolded and led into a mysterious room. As soon as they're in, the door locks behind them and the floor gradually retreats from beneath their feet. All they're left with are 3 wooden planks to stand on and 3 "plungers of life" to suction onto the wall and hang on to.

Sorry, but the pretty red bow isn't fooling anyone.

The planks begin to disappear into the wall and if you don't successfully answer the riddles/puzzles thrown at you before time's up, you have no choice but to fall into the bottomless pit of doom below.*

*Note: No comedians or idols were hurt in the making of this program.

Haruna Ai is one smart girl. She makes the best out of the situation.

Though resistant at first, Hina doesn't seem to mind too much either. XD

Mourning the loss of a fellow comrade.

Leader was a guest a couple weeks ago:

He spent most of the time clinging onto his plunger for dear life and making ridiculous faces.

There are other rooms beside this one, like the "Quicksand of Doom" Room:

Maru-chan's eyes plead to the voice from above as his body gradually sinks in what looks like a pool full of corn pops.

No particular point to this shot. Just filling my quota for "Maru butt." <3

"Nice T-zone!"

Precious Maru hitting his head on the ramp on his way out. XD <3

The "Falling Ceiling of Doom" Room:

Hina being a nice adult and protecting little Maya-chan. '3'

The "Bomb of Doom" Room:

Just an excuse to gets lots of close-ups of Yoko's pretty face.

The "Wall Monster of Doom" Room:

A man watches in horror as his elderly mother is gobbled up by the monster before his very eyes.

And of course, one of my favorites, the "Fish Tank of Doom" Room:

Unfortunately, Leader is a natural floater so Yoko has to do all the work.

Nagase cameo <3

I was amused at Nagase creepily watching on as Yoko solved a puzzle.

Some highlights from past episodes:

Yoko's polka-dotted shirt <3

Crying AKB members.

Kanjani making funny faces.


2 seconds into the game:
Baru: "I pass."
Hina: "Already!?"

Someone falls with grace and loses a shoe in the process while the others calmly watch.

Kobayashi Kendo a.k.a. awesome Iwai from BOSS.

He happens to be deathly afraid of heights and refuses to let go of his plunger handle even to high-five a school girl.

Later on KenKoba is like, "Why are you guys alive? I just saw you fall to your deaths!"

Anpanman feels your pain, Hina.

Cobweb Yoko.

The "Overseer" doesn't like Hina looking cool so he lets the viewers know, "Murakami kicked a starving puppy on his way here today."

See, it's not all tears and pleading for your life. :D

Oh and there's no such thing as too much Kanjani <333

Hina is smart and crazy good at solving puzzles. (Maybe it's the nerdy checkered shirt and grandpa sweater combo at work.)

Mmmm neck porn.

Yoko puts those big lips to use. XD

Wet Yoko and a wet ossan. <3

One last request to Leader: "Please send Yamaguchi instead next time." LOLOLOL

I'm in need for something amusing, too. Please tell me, where did you get the show?

It's seriously the perfect thing for lots of laughs. XD

Unfortunately, Anpanman was only in one special episode to promote his new movie, but it was still great seeing him. :D

Episodes are available on d-addicts: http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/torrents.php?search=dero and also at kanjani8 but you have to join the community for those.

Yesss <3 Laughing with them is like my hobby.

You're welcome! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did~ Kanjani8 are only on every other week, but apparently Koichi from KinKi Kids will be on with them next week so it's something to look forward to. :Db

Well, I see there are also Tokio members in some and I read Daigo from Breakerz is also in one *rubbing hands in anticipation and letting out evil laugh*

Can't wait to watch them hihi

Ehh, Daigo is on one? OMG that has just gone to the top of my find and watch list. Any idea which ep/date he appeared? I started watching this show because Takki and Tsubasa were on it, but now its just too much fun...i need to find more =)
Dec. 20th, 2010 09:57 am (UTC)
I think he's been in some eps of that show. The one I've seen is from 29 Sept. 2010. I found it in LJ but don't remember the journal since it wasn't about Breakerz or Daigo but about AKB48. However you may find something in the Breakerz comm too? If you can't find it... I'll try to find the link for you ;)

love your icon LOL!
Dec. 20th, 2010 10:22 am (UTC)
Thanks =) I found the 29th Sept. one so that'll keep me happy for now. I'll search to see if he's in anymore. Ah I can't wait to watch it...download faster internet! Thanks for your help =)

Yay for the MatsuJun icons XD
