According to Musicman-net, Tsunku will start a new entertainment show titled TsunTube♂ which will air on MXTV and will focus on music, games, anime, idols, software, and manga.

Here are more details about the show from TokyoHive:

The show’s content will shine a spotlight on Japan’s core entertainment that has recently been gathering attention worldwide, and in keeping with the late night show tradition, will also feature appearances from many beautiful girls.

As the main personality, each week Tsunku♂ will touch upon different themes and focus on connecting to them along with the viewers. The show will also be organized into various mini corners introducing core information.

Moreover, keeping in line with the show’s title, a number of the back episodes will be uploaded to YouTube, and in accordance with today’s evolving lifestyles, fans will be able to watch a large number of the shows in their free time, outside of the normal broadcast.

The show will also have two mascots that will serve as the image of the show, the first of them being Otaku-shi who is a symbol “capturing the feel of today’s cool otaku“:

As well as Tsunkuma who, as the name suggests, is a bear made to resemble Tsunku:

Tsunku surprises me each day since he manages to do things that not many of us would expect to see, and I have to admit that I am really surprised since I never expected him to have his own late night show and while we have no clear idea about how the show will be presented I am looking forward to finding out since the theme of the show is really interesting.

It’s not clear whether Tsunku himself will appear as host of the show or whether there will be other hosts, such as animated versions of the two mascots or one of the many “beautiful girls” who will be appearing but the idea of airing the show then adding the episodes on Youtube for fans to see them anytime they like is a really good idea since it gives fans a chance to sleep throughout the night knowing that they didn’t miss a show, not to mention that it makes it easier for fans who usually upload shows to Youtube.

As far the mascots go they are unique since I didn’t expect to see Tsunku represented by a cute white bear with a punk look, and while the bear might not exactly look like Tsunku (apart from the different colored bandana and hairstyle) he will probably be fairly popular among female viewers of the show since the bear is pretty cool and cute.

There aren’t that many details about how the episodes will look but we will most likely find out once the first episode is released (in about 16 hours or so), and while the articles don’t mention the Youtube account where the episodes will be uploaded it seems that they will use the official TNX Youtube channel since the site features a link to that channel.

I look forward to seeing the show when it is released so hopefully many fans can check out the first episode when it airs.

The show will air every Friday starting 7/1 on MXTV at 26:00 ~ 26:30 (2:00~2:30 AM).

^ I agree. oAo; Nightmaressss.

How does Tsunku stay sane? I honestly worry because of how busy he must be. Constantly composing/writing songs for 4 groups and deciding all of the things that go along with music and PVs & etc. PLUS all the concert stuff… And then this?
