Kintaro is a comedian who used to impersonate Maeda Atsuko, particularly her famous line “Even if you hate me, don’t hate AKB”. She seems to have moved on to impersonating Shimazaki Haruka now. Below is a funny excerpt from a variety show last night.
Scenario: Shimazaki Haruka in Sousenkyo – A very salty speech
MC: In 9th place, is Team A’s Shimazaki Haruka!
(Kintaro appears as Paruru, complete with troubled-looking eyebrows and hangover makeup.)
Paruru: I’m happy to receive this ranking. That’s all! *pout*
MC: That’s a fabulous speech, thank you.But don’t you have more to say to your fans?
Paruru: Mm…..mm…then please let me say more. Takamina san, you’re graduating soon. You always say hard work will always be rewarded, but i was rewarded without having to work hard! Shimazaki Haruka desu *waves*
