Quote from: amateur on November 24, 2021, 04:50:49 PMFinished season five and really loved it by the end. The props mentioned above were all time classics and I thought the ending was superb
QuoteSeason six! Yes!
Quote from: Minami Minegishi on November 24, 2021, 09:50:52 AMIt is going to be a while before that gets subbed so I would simply just enjoy the subbed Joshimental episode.
Quote from: ProvanFan on November 24, 2021, 05:03:28 PMThat's exactly what I did last night. Those final few minutes!
Quote from: Jerzy Bondov on November 28, 2021, 09:36:55 AMSeason 4 fucking BANGS. Everyone in there is really funny. Episode 4 is the best I've seen. Spoiler alertFujimoto dancing in a gold leotard to Kurosawa singing gibberish into an echoing mic backed by a dictaphone that makes weird clicking sounds is good enough, but then Nishizawa comes back in with that stupid wig on looking for his fucking Puma wallet, and then the triumphant return of Teddy Bear? That's extremely unfair. Then you've got Miyasako's bonk on, and then Itoda pissing all over the floor. Plus Iio's sumo soup thing. Painfully funny.[close]
Quote from: kidney on November 28, 2021, 12:01:47 PMYeah the Puma wallet stuff cracks me up. I love the Teddy Bear-chan song too, and sometimes sing it to myself when pottering around the house.
Quote from: Minami Minegishi on November 28, 2021, 10:13:35 AMI never really noticed Nishizawa much the first time around and ganged him in with some of the more passive, useless contestants. But that Puma wallet bit is pretty lethal and brilliant the second time around.

Quote from: amateur on November 29, 2021, 09:34:33 PMSometimes the deadpan reactions are funnier than the gags. Usually they make the gag funnier.
Quote from: Minami Minegishi on November 24, 2021, 04:58:34 PMSome adore it, and others don't take to it at all. For me it is the best, and certainly funniest and most tactical, and the third episode is probably my favourite episode ever. Enjoy it and START-O!
Quote from: madhair60 on October 29, 2021, 11:34:28 AMHad to join in, avatar-wise. If anyone has a better Fujimoto face, hook me up
Quote from: amateur on December 02, 2021, 09:25:52 AMSeason six DONE and I loved it.Spoiler alertThe tactics were superb - the blokes didn't know what to do with the women, who were incredible. So much creativity, good bits, great ripostes - they wiped the floor with them. Half of them were hiding out the back! Wonderful stuff.[close]
QuoteMuch as I love Fujimon, I can see why some people aren't huge fans - I didn't think he was creative at all in this one. Maybe he was overawed?[/spoiler]
Quote from: Minami Minegishi on December 02, 2021, 11:50:04 AMIt's so great the way that the Spoiler alertwomen understand that combining their forces is utterly lethal. The disintegration of Jimmy after he puts his head in the fridge and literally drops to the floor defeated is amazing. They are so talented and seem to avoid the men's tendency towards Manzai comedy (using a boke like Jimmy, or a tsukkomi like Fujiomon or Goto) or monologue Rakugo, going instead for complex 'bits' influenced by kabuki, or those scenes in a brothel. It's so great! [close]
QuoteI think that because Fujimon is a boke (straight man) his bits lack a certain amount of bizarre imagination. Spoiler alertThe noodle-hair face-mask bit is crap and the women quickly find a way to use it against him. I think Fujimon's powers come from his boke status, by undermining others with little put-downs and quips. His presence always seems to increase the feeling of tension because he is always so close to laughing, and tends to fuck himself up with his own gags.[close]

Quote from: amateur on December 02, 2021, 12:55:18 PMThank you for this analysis - I know nothing about Japanese comedy so your insight and the fansubs are making this a real education. I didn't expect nearly as much wordplay and it's really interesting to see what wordplay is funny and which is :rolls eyes:
QuoteWhen heSpoiler alertwhipped out the guitar and started singing that song, killing himself by singing "blue jeans",[close]there was a real sense if he could have just held on for three more seconds he would have taken someone out. But he didn't. He killed himself and it was magnificent.
Quote from: kidney on December 02, 2021, 03:03:40 PMNot sure he's been mentioned yet but I absolutely LOVED Shoji in S6; the little quips he comes out with, constantly getting things wrong and playing dumb, and the others (well, mostly Fujimon) mocking his poor timing. One of the stars of that season, for me.
Quote from: Jerzy Bondov on December 02, 2021, 03:56:25 PMSeason 4 was fucking magic. I really thought Kurosawa was great. I loved how she was constantly wearing a gormless expression; she obviously worked out she could stifle her laughs that way early on. Hitting Kuro-chan in the bare cock with a foam sword was a highlight. In fact she nearly broke him right near the end when she was grilling him about his sex lube.
Quote from: amateur on December 02, 2021, 06:25:21 PMOne thing I've wondered on the fansubs - the translations "interesting" and "scary" come up a lot. Do we reckon those are literal translations? It's a direct way of expressing your opinion, which I find very endearing, but wonder how accurate it is.
Quote from: Ja'moke on December 02, 2021, 06:57:58 PMI can make GIFS if there is anything in particular you are looking for. Just let me know.
Quote from: Jerzy Bondov on December 02, 2021, 10:03:17 PMJoshimental is great, although I definitely prefer the slower pace of normal Documental. The right person won, but I really liked Uika, she went right into the Fujimoto role of keeping things moving with little comments and quips, and had a similarly funny 'trying not to laugh' face.
Quote from: Minami Minegishi on December 04, 2021, 12:07:10 PMAh thanks - I really want to learn it myself as there are so many little moments I would like to grab on a rewatch. Do you use VLC or a proper video editing soft5ware suite?
Quote from: Ja'moke on December 04, 2021, 02:31:12 PMI use a free software called HandBrake to cut out the exact part I want (it lets you put in timestamps) and then just use giphy.com to turn it into a GIF.
Quote from: Swoz_MK on December 06, 2021, 09:26:21 AMNice! Have resisted watching eps 1&2 until I have them all. How many eps in S8?
