(Hotel pt 18) Let's get some Enka on

One of the black and white photos that keeps showing up to bust the Gaki members is Shirou Kishibe who has appeared in the "Hospital" series as a pregnant woman(?)
More about him here:

Another photo is of Eisaku Ohkawa. He's a famous Enka singer in Japan. Enka is a popular Japanese music genre started more than 150 years ago. Allow me to recite a paragraph from Wiki:
The term "enka" was first used to refer to political texts set to music which were sung and distributed by opposition activists belonging to the Freedom and People's Rights Movement during the Meiji period (1868–1912) as a means of bypassing government curbs on speeches of political dissent – and in this sense the word is derived from "enzetsu no uta" (演説の歌?), meaning "speech song".

Personally, Enka will always going to remind me of older people since Enka is mostly appreciated by older generations.
But of course, the time has changed. I understand there's been a waves of younger Enka singers these days. And more surprisingly, there's a first American-born Enka singer in Japan named Jero. You can listen to some of his Enka songs here:

Thank you, Alex for another awesome job.

  2. Has Endō ever been Thai-kicked in the 24-hour batsu games before? I don't remember. I think he is the only person who hasn't received one yet.

    Anyways, thanks for the subs!

    ReplyDelete
  11. If you cant wait, stop waiting and go learn Japanese yourself... High quality subbing is hard work...

    Some people are just idoits... They do nothing and expect everything...

    Fuck off you whiny ingrate douchebag. Stop acting like you're entitled to this mans hard work. Go fuck a cow.

  13. Nah, only Matsumoto and Tanaka got a Thai kick in the first No-Laughing spa. I'm expecting Endō to get his kick in next year's batsu game, lol.

    Oh, forgot to thank Alex in my last comment, so thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh man, the tambourine bit had me rofl. XD

    Thanks again Alex!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Did Endo just made the Sign of the Cross when Tanaka was hit or was it something else? LMAO.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks so much for doing such a complete job on the subs and explaining cultural tidbits and who celebrities are here. Much appreciated! Ignore the people who demand stuff from you and don't understand that you guys do this in your spare time. Keep up the good work shibatabread and Alex.

  18. W00t another uplaod. I swear every time I come onto this site and check your clog it feels a little like christmas. I'm having a hard time in college and watching these vids allows me to smile even if only for 10 minutes :) Like others have said before ignore the fucktards that post such rude and ignorant comments. You and Alex are the best and all of us appreciate it.

    these kind of people are still waiting to have their diapers changed. If you have poo coming out, then do it yourself :)

    Actually, Endou got thai kicked in the 24h tag batsu game. It's a different type of batsu game, but it was a thai kick nonetheless (he got hit three times in a row!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I believe that Endo was Thai-kicked during the 24-hour tag series. He got 3 Thai-kicks in a row after being caught.

  22. loved the Thai kick received by Tanaka. I laughed so hard when i saw Claudia, i could still remember her as princess Lea in no laughing @ hospital.

    The tambourine thing was awesome. Can't wait for the next one. Thanks Shibata and Alex! =) (vonKyle)

  23. For the British and Australians, Shiro Kishibe is famous as Sandy of Monkey.

  24. why i cudn't view the video in youtube....it said it was an error and try it again later...but still the video won't play...shibata...cud u help me~~ onegaishimasu

  25. "Claudia, i could still remember her as princess Lea in no laughing @ hospital."

    That was the No Laughing Newspaper Man one, not the No Laughing Hospital.

    ReplyDelete
  26. ohnuma is great!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Claudia did have a small part in the hospital one (as in "Claudia!!!!!"), but yeah, not as Lea.

    By my reckoning Jimmy should be coming up soon, man I can't wait. Mr Onishi is the highlight of any batsu for me.

    BTW, I too noticed Endos sign of the cross. Is that just a Japanism or something?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Was it Tanaka who got Thai-kicked in the School Batsu game?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Matsumoto got kicked in the High School library, don't remember if Tanaka did too.

  30. Internet is full of trolls, the best way is to just ignore their filth that comes out of their silly mouths. Stay positive! :)

    Saying that, thanks again for yet another awesome upload Alex and Shibatabread! :D

You´re subs are good and you´re level is high. Keep it that way and let us see more translations from you! Greetings from Estonia.

  35. Thanks Shibata and Alex!

    This one was just freaking too funny. I can't wait for 19, if it's anything like the newspaper one then I know I'm going to be watching it over and over again :P

    ReplyDelete

  40. The song at the end was "Friends" by Rebecca.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REosPdibowI

    Another song from 80's. I guess there are so many songs from 80's in this show because the director, the producer and other staffs grew up on these songs when they were young.
