Alo-Hello! – Ishikawa Rika

June 26, 2013

Dear Readers,

OMFG!!! After what… over 5 years of in the making, this project is finally completed!!!!

Description by Henkka:
Ah, the good old days of Hello! Project when you knew the slow-motion bikini scenes would only occupy 5% of the DVD’s length!

Wait, what? There were still unsubbed Alo-Hello! DVD’s around?! Yep, it’s true, and the fact that this DVD was never subbed until now is a huge mystery to me. It definitely ranks up there as one of the best in the series for me.

I’ll be honest though: it felt weird translating this at times. I’m a twentysomething Finnish metalhead whose hobbies include growing a beard and drinking too much — imagine someone like me spending an hour on Google researching women’s nail art just so I could properly translate this thing for you guys. It was a wild ride to say the least.

Speaking of drinking, if you’re anything like me and you live for video moments of H!P members drinking alcohol, then let’s just say you’re in for a treat!

Aside from nail art and getting drunk on camera, Rika’s Alo-Hello! also features:

– Rika flirting with a hot guy on the pretense of buying jewelry
– An almost philosophical monologue about black tapioca shakes
– Embarrassing attempts at tennis with a Hawaiian tennis champion
– Scenes of Rika drinking salt water (and occasionally surfing)
– Lei making and hula dancing with a hint of sexual harassment
– The staple of idol DVD’s: Rika stuffing her face with food
– Okay, fine, there’s bikinis as well.
…and more!

So what are you waiting for? It’s Rika Ishikawa and Alo-Hello!
