Ainori <3333

Discuss & learn about Ainori, the cutest reality show ever!

Quote
Ainori is a reality program where seven young men and women travel the world riding a pink bus. The program is reminiscent of a travelogue; as of September 2007, the show has followed the bus across 79 countries (now 85) as participants explore both famous tourist attractions and more off-the-beaten-path places. The participants are led across each country by a native who serves as tour guide, bus driver, and friend. Upon reaching the border with another country, the bus stops and participants head out to their next destination country to meet their new tour guide and get into their new bus.

The show's twist is that the participants are each young, single people whose goal is to find love with another participant and return to Japan as a couple. When a participant has decided they like someone else, they ask the driver for a ticket back to Japan. They then declare their love to the object of their affection, and ask that the two return to Japan together. After a night's consideration, the person who received the love declaration can either answer with a kiss, after which both participants leave the bus for Japan. Otherwise, the jilted participant is left to return to Japan alone. Besides the love declaration, participants are forbidden from talking openly about their love interests with other participants, but inform the TV audience of their feelings through diaries and confessions to the camera (shot when no other participants are present).

After people leave the bus, new people are added to the program, to keep the total at 7 members. They are seen on the side of the road with a painted cardboard sign (appearing to be hitchhikers) and brought aboard after a self-introduction.

Ainori is so addictive! I've watched episodes 369-381 so far and I'm loving it. The show's edited so that you can't wait to see the next episode, and all the participants are so cute and seem so genuine. And it's surprising how much emotion there can be on this show, I've laughed and cried while watching it *lol @ me*

Interested but dunno where to find episodes?? You might be able to find them shortly in the Asshole :D

Download thread is up and running here.

...

I watched the show years ago, in 2005 or so when the show had a subber and a blogger covering episodes in english. When the subbers stopped, my interest waned. Just recently, I realized the people were subbing the show again and now I'm hooked once more.

It's a fun reality/romance/travel show with the Japanese twists and cute chicks. So go leech an episode and see what you think. :P

lolz, I always wanted to start a ainori thread ^^

I watch the show for 3 years now (started watching around ep.270), but lately I have this feeling all the made up drama is getting worse and worse, I don't remember it being so artificial in the past, if it goes on like this I don't know how long I'm gonna keep watching.

That reminds me, I still gotta watch the latest episode.


btw for latest episodes check d-addicts, it's uploaded there every week, also someone started uploading old episodes in batches, newest and some old episodes are also available on veoh (though I have no idea why the newest one won't dl for me)

I remember watching my first episode while visiting Japan (I sure wasted a lot of time with the hotel TV).
In that episode one guy and girl had left the group, sat down and were just chatting sweetly. It was a really nice atmosphere.
And then a rainbow suddenly showed up! It was like a small miracle saying they were made for each other. :wub:

I even went to Fuji TV Station and bought the show's stationary to give to a girl I liked at the time (kinda chuckling in my mind, knowing she'd never know what this stuff's origin was from).

The thing I love about the show is how you'll never get lost since it always summaries what happened between who. And the fact that Hisamoto makes it more entertaining with all her hilarious comments in the background.

hey this show. They showed it on tv here for years (don't know if they still do), I tried watching it a few times, but without subs I couldn't get into it, and after I actually learned japanese I forgot all about it.

Maybe I'll give it a try again since lots of people seam to really like it, and I seem to really enjoy reality shows like this.

MMaahhhh Ainori. I need subs for the next episodes xD

My favorite character is so far Momo, even if she's not as beautiful as Remi, or not funny like Kuro, she has that little thing that i like in her.


And btw BON BON NARU WORKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

^ :lol: I have no idea who those people are.

only watched the first two episodes that stryfe upped, but it's turning out pretty good so far, and it looks like the real drama is about to start.

I also find the pro-japan stuff in the ep. 370 hilarious. :lol:

I actually really really like Remi. She's awesome, esp. when she smashed that fly. XD She really seems impossible, but I have a nack for falling for those kind of girls :lol:

This sounded like a really good show, so I watched some episodes. I like how the hosts discuss the happenings between the people that are travelling and was also surprised that the Meringue no Kimochi-woman is also hosting this. I find this show highly enjoyable so I'll keep on watching  :)
