J-League Mascot Election

In advance of Fuji Xerox Super Cup 2013, an official J-League supporting site J's GOAL conducted a general election of 37 J-League mascots.

Just like AKB's, one who is voted the most can secure the center position in the photo at the game day.

Here are the top 5.

No.1 Vegatta from Vegalta Sendai

No.2 Ven-kun from Ventforet Kofu

No.3 Dole-kun from Consadole Sapporo

No.4 Dio from Montedio Yamagata

No.5 Ganzu-kun from Matsumoto Yamaga

Fuji Xerox Super Cup 2013 will start soon, but Kashiwa Reysol may be advantage over Sanfrecce Hiroshima because Reysol's Rey-kun placed in 14th while Hiroshima's Sancce placed in 32nd in mascots election.

Anyway, our Urawa Reds' Schale-kun took the 20th place.

Urawa would place higher if the candidate had been Radia...

Season Ticket 2013

A season ticket has arrived!!

We'll watch Urawa Reds home games at the same seat as last year.

A small bag, which is given as the privilege inhering in the membership, seems to be so convenient.

There will be a lot of difficulties Urawa Reds faces in this season because of their congested schedule.

Let's get them over together and become champions!!

Tsukutte Asobo Makes What?

"つくってあそぼ (Tsukutte Asobo = Fun With Crafts)", which is NHK's long-running program for children and is still popular now, has been decided to put an end next month.

The program started in 1990.

Mr. Wakuwaku (left) is fond of making something from daily stuff like wasted paper and aluminum foil.

Having a chat with his friend Gorori (right), he tells young viewers how interesting making things is.

Actually I don't remember what he had made, but there's no doubt that Mr. Wakuwaku has made best memories and dreams for us through the program.

Animal Crossing

Here is the surprising photo I took after taking a bath around midnight.

You know my brother fell asleep unawares while playing a game called "Animal Crossing" ("Doubutu no Mori" in Japanese), but please take a closer look at the screen.

A character he assumed was also sleeping on his bed!!

He was too exhausted to play the game after studying hard for the tests all night along.

One of the elements that "Animal Crossing" has been popular recently is that a player can assume the character freely in the village and design what they like to do in the world by communicating with anthropomorphic animals.

In other words, a player can make the second himself in the world.

Looking at my brother, I supposed that such social simulation games may have a bad influence on players' personality when they are addicted...
