The first episode will feature a surprise segment with Sashihara Rino and AKB48's face Maeda Atsuko. Sashihara's challenge is to show disrespect to Maeda, her sempai in the group.
I'm not sure what to think of this honestly. On one hand, I'm really excited for it because it's Sasshi and I know she can make things interesting. On the other hand, I feel that they are pushing her way too much with this. She has been pushed alot recently, first there was that Sashiko 2.5 seconds thingy, then the whole 100 blog post in a day, and now she gets her own TV show featuring her. Ok I get it, you want to push Sasshi. But giving her a full 30 min TV show is just too much. Let me just make this clear though, I don't hate Sasshi for this, I just dislike the management's choices sometimes.
