Each time this show has a special subject of the year and this year’s is “Thank You”(/「ありがとう」).  A lot of people in the show  expressed their gratitude and talked about thanking someoneand mutual help.  Some athletes and TV personalities tried a challenging sport activities and some of them surpringly bested the world records of those sport activities,such as  trying to make ten-strikes as many as possible withen one minute, and  trampoline-dunks.

Every year the show appoints one runner who is a TV personality as a runner to try a long and tough  the double distance marathon of  85 km to encourage suffering people spending the term of the show about 26 hours with breaks.    Sometimes  the runner  is able to reach the goal at Nippon Budokan, the main venue of the show in Tokyo in time, and sometimes the runner can’t make it by the end of the airingterm of the show.  Last year the runner couldn’t reach Nippon Budokan withen the term of  the airing time.

This year the “chosen runner” was  Ai Haruna(/はるな愛) a shemale Tvpersonality who is rapidly becoming popular and selected as “the best shemale of the world”. “She” (or “he”?) is the first shemale runner in the all the history of the  “24HTV”.   Actually, she had made it to reaching the goal about 10 minutes before the show was over so dramatically, and  energetically and zealously  welcomed by so many audiences of  MCs, other performers, staff, and even passers-by. The grand finale of the show with her arrivial at the goal was quite impressive.
