Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!
« on: June 10, 2012, 03:01:58 PM »
Gaki no Tsukai is a Japanese variety show that has been running since 1989 and as such, has made it over the magical 1000 episodes mark already. It\'s hosted by a very well known owarai duo Downtown (Hitoshi Matsumoto, Masatoshi Hamada), and co-hosted by a comedian Hosei Yamasaki and another owarai duo, Cocorico (Naoki Tanaka, Shozo Endo).

In western world, they\'re most well known by their now annual no-laughing batsu game special which is shown as a lengthy new year celebration episode. These can run as long as 5 hours long even with the commercial breaks cut off.

Their weekly running show has many different styles and segments ranging from funny \"stalking\" episodes where they make it look as if the rest of the cast is stalking one member and he does something stupid, to cooking shows such as Absolutely Tasty where each cast member come up with a new recipe for whatever they\'re making - and then they taste it - such as cotton candy pizza.

My favourite episodes are, of course, the batsu games, everything from Kiki Series and Absolutely Tasty, and also the random games they come up with. There\'s been a lot of those. Tongue twisters where if you fail, you get your balls slapped by a machine. Or a new way to play dodge ball, which I won\'t even talk about because it was so awesome everyone needs to check it out.

Links and stuff:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downtown_no_Gaki_no_Tsukai_ya_Arahende!! - Because.
https://gakifiles.blogspot.com/ - a certain subber\'s blog. Check out \"watch videos\" for quite a few great episodes to start out with. Also, the batsu games. Watch them, laugh, love them. They subbed the latest batsu game too, just finished recently (yes, took about 5 months - all worth the wait though).
https://d-addicts.com/forum/torrents.php?search=gaki+no+tsukai - Probably the best/easiest resource for the RAWs. They\'re pretty much up to date.
https://www.shibatabread.com/ - One of the most well known Gaki no Tsukai subber. Subbed whole batsu games, but also some good manzai clips by Downtown. Those are also worth checking out.
https://gaki-no-tsukai.com/ - English fan forums for everything about the show. Probably the best resource for Gaki everything. Though many of the episodes I\'ve found over there, I haven\'t been able to watch due to certain file sharing sites not working anymore and files deleted etc.. but still.

Just watched this one :D
