Aired On: October 2, 2006
Well, I said that I will use this blog mostly for flailing, and although I don't mean to restrict it to Arashi it seems like it will be that for the most part, at least for now. I watch Shukudai-kun every now and then, but there are still more episodes I haven't seen than ones I have seen, and since it's my favourite Arashi show and I love Tor.com's re-watch posts (for shows like Firefly, Avatar: the Last Airbender, etc) I thought I'd do my own Arashi no Shukudai-kun re-watch. Not that I'd have a lot to comment on - I'd probably have nothing but "kyaaa!" to say most of the time, haha.
One of the other reasons for the re-watch is so that I watch all the episodes in chronological order, which I've never done before. It'll be like seeing them/the show grow before my eyes, maybe?
This first episode has actress Iijima Naoko as a guest. I like that before Ogura-san went in he was wondering if he'd be able to work with Arashi. (^_^) And that he said the only reason he accepted the job because he heard Iijima Naoko was going to be the first guest, haha. The food-related homework they received was to research on thick yakiniku. Back then things were done a little differently - they actually went out and tried the food before choosing the winner to present to the guest. Even the image segment was done differently - it's funny this way, but since the image thing is one of the parts that I'm least interested in in Shukudai-kun I'm glad they changed it!
