Nogizaka46’s Matsumura Sayuri and Nakada Kana host a regular live show on Japanese internet streaming site called NikoNikoDouga. The show, called “Nama no aidoru ga suki” (roughly, “I love real idols”), aired their 16th episode on July 8th, and featured a somewhat… interesting segment.
The second segment of the show featured two guest members of idol group SUPER☆GiRLS Miyazaki Rina and Watanae Hikaru, and was announced by Matsumura as “Sayuringo Touching Fortune Telling”. For all intents and purposes, it seems to be merely your run-of-the-mill “fortune telling,” with an added extra bit of bodily groping. While the two subjects of Matsumura’s fortune telling react positively to their fortune’s accuracy by cutely screaming out “That’s so true!” (“当たってる！”), many viewers of the show point out that Matsumura’s fortune telling prowess probably came by way of reading the SUPER☆GiRLS blog and Twitter accounts.
Apparently, Matsumura’s fortune telling victims also include guest members from idol group Afilia Saga.
Pictures are worth a thousand words. Here’s the first with Afilia Saga’s Maho Sotto Voce:

Legitimate fortune telling, or a ploy for ratings?! Who’s to say.
Sometimes editor. Sometimes translator. Mostly a proofreader. I like Japan and things.
