Iguchi Yuka, Hanazawa Kana and Hikasa Yoko have a little too much fun in front of the camera (especially Pikasha) while doing a mini-live of the RO-KYU-BU! song “Free Throw na LOVE Shite Kure.” HanaKana’s hand gesture toward the camera @0:18 マジ天使！

I need one of these in my life
The collision between the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy.
the grand showdown
Andromeda is a bit bigger than us. So when that happens, Andromeda’s black hole is gonna consume our black hole in a vicious act of galactic canabalism.
Which is an actual term used in astronomy apparently.
“Galactic Cannabalism” sounds like an electro/death metal fusion band.
Galactic cannibalism is one of my favourite astronomical terms, but it doesn’t beat the term used for the stretching out into a long thin tube that occurs when something falls into a black hole (spaghettification) or the term used for a rock thought to be a meteorite but which later turns out to be an ordinary terrestrial rock (meteowrong).
fuck astronomy remains to be my favorite thing
apparently we’ll survive this
Saito Chiwa channels her inner fujoshi in this excerpt from episode 117 of the Sayonara Zetsubou Housou radio show. Usually, it’s Kamiya Hiroshi who plays the role of the kimo-otaku. However, in this episode, the roles are reversed and he’s on the receiving end.
Some background to fully enjoy the clip:
1. The term “moge” used throughout has the same meaning as “moe” and is a term that was coined in the SZBH radio show (see definition here).
2. Hiroshi’s nickname is HiroC.
Chiwachiwa: A special program starts now! “Mo-moge! Kamiya HiroC’s so moge!”
Sayonara everyone! I’ll be the representative for all HiroC fans. My nickname is Chiwachiwa and I’m 17 years old! Oi oi! *giggles* [Reference to Inoue Kikuko’s tsukkomi]
Hiroshi’s radio show that I like the most has got to be… GS, I guess? Like y’know?! OH NOES!! HIROC’S MANNERISMS ARE RUBBING OFF ON ME!! It’s like, so interesting!
This program is to present everyone’s favorite HiroC mogemoge moments! Nowadays, it’s no longer about moe, or tore [reference to Hiroshi’s character, Aragaki Koyomi, in Bakemonogatari], it’s about moge now!
Well then… our guest this time is…
Hiroshi: Sayonara everyone! I’m Kamiya Hiroshi.
Chiwachiwa: MOOOGEEEE!! Moge! HiroC’s so moge! So cute, so cute, he’s so cute!! HiroC is C-U-T-E!!! No way, he’s so hot! He’s so handsome! Like a model! *screams* No way! That’s so interesting! *giggles*
Hiroshi: Um, I haven’t said anything yet…
Chiwachiwa: *screams* OMG, he looked this way! Our eyes met! What should I do? What should I do?! Woohoo!!
Hiroshi: Shouldn’t you be introducing the fan letters?
Chiwachiwa: Ummm, can I call you “HiroC”?
Hiroshi: Can I suggest something?
Chiwachiwa: *screams* Moge! HiroC’s moge! Well then, I’ll introduce our first fan letter.
Hiroshi: Thank you very much.
Chiwachiwa: From Koryogi-san(?). Zetsubou Sensei and Bakemonogatari are great shows. How come Kamiya-san always gets these types of roles? When I watch those anime, I’m always so excited!
Being excited is moge! *giggles* Exciting moge! Exciting moge! It’s really exciting moge isn’t it?
Hiroshi: Um, not really. You know, I’m really grateful-
Chiwachiwa: You know, um… I like Zetsubou Sensei and I’ve seen Bakemonogatari as well… I really, REALLY like Araragi-kun…
Hiroshi: Oh really? Well thanks…
Chiwachiwa: It’s like, as expected from HiroC, you know, like really!
Hiroshi: No, no…
Chiwachiwa: No wai! That’s so interesting! What are you saying?! I totally dig that! Like no way… *giggles*
Okay, here’s the next fan letter. “Mo-moge! During the Zessubou live, in the gleenloom-” Oh noes, I’m mogeing so much right now that I stumbled on my words… Here I go again! “Mo-moge! During the Zetsubou live, you neatly folded someone’s clothing-” HIROC MOGEEE!!!
You folded something? No way! Wait, really? You folded something!! For real? That’s so interesting!
Hiroshi: Um… Uh… *tries to get a word in, but is overwhelmed by Chiwachiwa*
Chiwachiwa: How did you fold it? Did you start from the right or left side?! Which was it?
Hiroshi: Um, it depends on… *starts speaking but is totally overrun by Chiwachiwa*
Chiwachiwa: *screams* From the right side?! Huh? Which side, which side? No way, that’s so moge!! Really moge! Why did you fold the clothes? So why did you? So thoughtful! So kind! Kind! HiroC’s so kind! So moge!
Chiwachiwa: OMG! How kind can you get?
Hiroshi: Ah, you know…
Chiwachiwa: No way! *giggles* You gotta be kidding me! You are just too kind! So um, why are you wearing gray clothes today?
Hiroshi: Well you know…
Chiwachiwa: No way! So manly! Moge! HiroC’s so manly! Moge! Kyaah! Moge!
Well then, that’s all for the “Mo-moge! Kamiya HiroC’s so moge!” program today!
Hiroshi: Well, we’ll never do this again. Sayonara!
Chiwachiwa: *back to normal* Was that alright?
