24 Oct

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 to Takamina
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*

Paruru to Sasshi
Paruru: Sashihara san! Thanks for taking on the role to push me!

Paruru to Mariko
Paruru: Shinoda san, it seems like i’ve easily crushed you! Lucky! (Shinoda is like WTH?!)

Paruru to Akip
Paruru: Akimoto san, for my increase in ranking, do increase my salary accordingly!

Kintaro attempts to register for the AKB48 General Elections

5 Apr

The popular comedian Kintaro made her way to the AKB48 theater in Akihabara today to register herself as a candidate for the upcoming elections, in place of Acchan. In an attempt to express her enthusiasm, she even danced her infamous version of “Flying Get” on the spot while streaming the music from a player. Unfortunately, staff had to explain that she was not eligible for the elections and she walked off, saying “Even if you hate me, don’t hate Maeda Atsuko!”.


If you don’t know her, check out her impersonations of Acchan below.

If you don’t know who Kintaro is, she’s a comedian talent who made her mark in Japanese showbiz recently by imitating Maeda Atsuko. One of her trademark performances is a cover of “Flying Get”, which is so funny cos of her size and overly enthusiastic energy.

Now Golden Bomber’s Kiryuin Sho has created his own video of “Flying Get”, complete with costume, explosive energy and even a voiceover for the lyrics. Now we know why he has no time to attend award giving ceremonies heh.

In response to his parody, Kintaro shared a link to the video and tweeted “Everyone, i’ve gotten a sister called Kiri-taro! Her dance is really awesome! Please support! I especially love the NANANA part!”

Fans all over the world are squealing at how cute he is.
