Well the obvious SSK work that comes to mind is the bikini magazine or the music video shooting. It could also be other work - all she said was that it was work she got because of the fans, which made me think it was SSK-related due to the time. Idols love to promote their areas, especially the ones who are from other areas than most of the rest. Practically everyone gets work in their regions - Oshirin in Yaizu, Macchi in Gifu, Yukichan in Kyoto, Hatagon in Kagawa, etc. Maya has been on some TV shows in Miyagi and of course did the first pitch for the Rakuten Eagles. But compared to Donchan (Tochigi prefecture) or Hatagon/Macchi she really isn't getting much, despite being the #1 seller for CDs at Tsutaya. OK, I realize this is a very... "whatever" stat and rather inconsequential but when you couple that with how quickly she sells out five slots in Sendai (and the large number of people who go to those handshakes) it reinforces her claim that she has a lot of support there. http://tsutaya.tsite.jp/feature/music/idol/sousenkyo/2018 Maya News Vol. 2 General news -Maya had a handshake event in Coach & Four in Sapporo with Egochan and Izurin. The event is like a national handshake event. Coach & Four is actually kind of special for Maya - they're the ones who sell a special photocard of Maya if you buy the single from their shop. Every senbatsu member is affiliated with a store, so Maya is affiliated with Coach & Four, which is based in Hokkaido. It's thanks to that affiliation that Maya went to Hokkaido last year as well (I think). I went to the Coach & Four in Tokyo (Wakabadai) in January when Maya was there with Miyo and Renahyuu. It's a really nice store. Looks like someone brought their kid. After the event they flew (I doubt they took a train) back to Tokyo and from there Maya went back to Nagoya. She thinks it's a big trip and kind of exhausting to do a round-trip in a day. But according to her it's great to have such events precisely because of that distance. She ate some kaisendon (she's unsure about that), some kind of Hokkaido cuisine. Of course she was glad to be there since it was much cooler than the rest of Japan where it's boiling. -I mentioned handshakes last time, so here's a chart for her handshake slots (made on July 25th). It's sold out if it's got the red characters over the number. Mobame -Maya thanked the fans who came for the event in Hokkaido. A lot of the people who came were from Hokkaido but there were also some fans who came just for the event. The event was full of people she hadn't met before, which was nice. -She ate some shaved ice with some beans... it looked more like a cake with chocolate and some beans to me, and not very tasty, but she wanted to eat another one. This was before heading off to Hokkaido by the way. I wish I could share the pictures - if you really want to see them you can get the SKE48 Mail app on your phone and pay the monthly fee. Unfortunately the app doesn't let you save the photos, so they are small.
