    A little cross-promotion...

    My good friend DLJ and I had a nice little discussion, which was recorded for the New School Kaidan YouTube Channel.



    We talk about living in Japan, Wasamin events, Minyo Girls, and "The State of AKB." Oh, and a clarification. The SKE member who I asked if I was scary was Sugawara Maya.

    Thank you for reading. Yes, sometimes it is hard for me to believe that some of these experiences I have posted about happened 10 years ago. In fact, it was almost 9 years ago to the day that I first encountered Wasamin. She and I have been friends for a long time. Even Kaotan, at a recent event, mentioned that we have known each other for a long time.

    Sometimes I read some of those old posts, and I can't believe what an insufferable noob I was back then. :p

    I'm enjoying your old posts! I've been reading through them recently and I appreciate the insight into past AKB (and your current write ups are great as well).
