    Sutou Ririka of idol group NMB48, on the 4th, participated in a press junket as she completed the taping for the first episode of NMB Sutou Ririka no Mahjong Gachi Battle! Riripon no Topme Tottande!, which is scheduled to air August 8th on the CS channel TBS1 (New episodes bi-weekly at midnight). On the creation of her own show she expressed her elation stating, "I am very thankful. I am happy to be able to play Mahjong, which I love", while simultaneously expressing her concern stating, "I feel like I have to make a lasting impression".

    The show features Sutou, who had been studying the rules of Mahjong as a suggestion from Akimoto Yasushi, battling her senpai from the entertainment industry. The philosophically inclined Sutou stated, "Akimoto Sensei said that 'Mahjong is like philosophy' and how it's fun to see how different people play"

    The newly appointed center of NMB's new song Durian Shonen, Sutou states that her own Mahjong style is more offensive stating, "I value coolness and constantly wait to complete. I want to learn defense and defeat Akimoto Sensei in Mahjong. I want to grow and be able to do a hakoten"

    The first episode's guests feature NMB48 Kawakami Rena and Mita Mao, Total Dempos's Oomura Tomohiro, Top Lead's Niizuma Shuta, and Oikawa Nao.

    Kawakami states, "I am happy that my kouhai is able to have a show of her own but at the same time am also sad, and want to work hard so I can one day hold my own show for udon (which she loves)". Gaining an interest as a result of learning Mahjong on the show, Mita states, "I will download an Mahjong app and have Riripon teach me"

    Let's steal Sata for NMB like how HKT stole away Gotou. He's been working with Maokyun so much lately and seems to like her. I'm sure it's much more fun for him than babysitting AKBabies. :shifty:

    That would be funny, Sata is probably an easier person to schedule than others. Gotou also has Galette on his plate too from another show he does. But I think we'll see a more diverse range of talentos swing by on this show as well as some people from Takenaka's (the producer) own stable (like we're already seeing Top Lead from AnDare) so it'll be interesting how it works out. It was in the newspaper and brought up on Akko no Omakase this morning (another show Takenaka runs) so it's getting some more traction that I realized.

    The show is on pay cable/satellite (with a higher hurdle than Genkai Toppa, same level as M-Nee) so its not as big as, say, if she got a midnight slot on the normal channels.

    Good for her (and her fans) that she now has her own show (or at least named after her:^^;:)

    p.s.
    I've been looking for her tv appearances lately, so if anyone know any other of her tv appearances as a guest or even a slight appearance is fine, please tell me! :worthy:

    Good for Riripon! Not just good at that Japanese card game, she's aiming to be good at the Chinese tiles as well. Can't wait to see her progress in this.

    I don't know how many episodes this will end up being but getting her own show is just fantastic. So glad she's getting this push from Aki-P.

    She was recently on KonKurabe, Sanma Goten and will be on Downtown DX soon. She seems to be making rounds at all the TV stations with big NMB connections as part of her center push.
