This past Sunday, the popular music and variety show Utawara, hosted by Matsumoto Jun and Matsuura Aya, had a two hour summer special that featured Arashi, KAT-TUN, and Koda Kumi. What I’m writing about today is the segment that featured Koda Kumi: it was called the 「チビっ子エロかわダンス選手権」 (Chibikko Erokawa Dance Senshuken). Apparently, the show announced that they were holding such a competition and they got 1,419 applications. They eventually narrowed the field down to nine teams and those teams are the ones who performed in this roughly half-hour segment. Basically, each group does a dance to a Koda Kumi song, and they get judged by Wada Akiko, Tomochika Tsuyako, and Machamacha.
What’s so wrong about this is that the girls they get are aged 2-12. Yes that’s right, they even had a two year old. Basically, this segment qualifies for every loli-pedo fetish, particularly since Koda Kumi dances aren’t exactly known to be chaste. Keep in mind, the title of the competition includes the word erokawa, which means cute but sexy. In the end, a group called “Princess Barbie” (all six year olds) won for their dance to the Butterfly song. Koda Kumi handed them a large trophy and then proceeded to sing I’ll be there, a song from her newest single 「4 hot wave」.
And now for the part I’m sure many of you have been waiting for (this would be the NSFW part). The webmaster over at Japan Probe uploaded all nine performances to YouTube.
