Ainori
Posted 2/27/08
Ainori is a reality program where seven young men and women travel the world riding a pink bus. The program is reminiscent of a travelogue; as of September 2007, the show has followed the bus across 79 countries as participants explore both famous tourist attractions and more off-the-beaten-path places. The participants are led across each country by a native who serves as tour guide, bus driver, and friend. Upon reaching the border with another country, the bus stops and participants head out to their next destination country to meet their new tour guide and get into their new bus.

The show's twist is that the participants are each young, single people whose goal is to find love with another participant and return to Japan as a couple. When a participant has decided they like someone else, they ask the driver for a ticket back to Japan. They then declare their love to the object of their affection, and ask that the two return to Japan together. After a night's consideration, the person who received the love declaration can either answer with a kiss, after which both participants leave the bus for Japan. Otherwise, the jilted participant is left to return to Japan alone. Besides the love declaration, participants are forbidden from talking openly about their love interests with other participants, but inform the TV audience of their feelings through diaries and confessions to the camera (shot when no other participants are present).

After people leave the bus, new people are added to the program, to keep the total at 7 members. They are seen on the side of the road with a painted cardboard sign (appearing to be hitchhikers) and brought aboard after a self-introduction.

I still watch it, it has gotten COMPLETELY interesting. I watch it on Veoh since I don't have the AZN channel anymore, I wish someone would upload videos of Japonica Logos Y.Y
One of the female members likes the driver only to find out he have a gf. Now she likes the new guy in which he got injured by a horse that was attacking, cut his hand. Then she came over to wash his hair (so kawaii!) & he gave her one of his high-cut boxers that he sells at his(? I think he owns it) store. Then met a family who harvests cacao beans for the chocolate that we eat. At their house/hut, its very small & for fun they kick around a gourg(? can't spell obviously) as a soccer ball. So the Ainori cast gave them a soccer ball (in which one of the members is a soccer player so the kids are lucky to have one) & chocolate (cuz the kids have never tasted chocolate before).
So many couples are in the making right now. can't wait for #401, something freaky happens O.O
