Afternoonの昼下がり Started this Month! 今月から配信!

撮影中 Now Filming!

Hey guys, I know it’s been a while.

How have you been doing?

I want to tell you about a special project I have been working on.

About 2 months ago, my friend Micchiy introduced me to his filmmaking friend, ODA.

(If you live in Fukuoka, you might recognize Micchiy as one of the reporters on the late-night TV shows, DUOMO and SLOTTARE!)

We got together and, over drinks, brainstormed ideas for a youtube series.

And that’s how Afternoonの昼下がり (Afternoon no Hirusagari/Afternoon’s Afternoon) was born.

It’s about two characters–myself and Micchiy.

He can only speak Japanese, and I can only speak English.

As they talk, they become friends, and start so spend the afternoons together.

I think it’s going to be interesting for those who are learning either English or Japanese.

In each video, the conversation plays twice.

The first time as is, the second time with subtitles.

The theme song was composed by Micchiy, and we sang it together.

Right now, we are uploading a new episode every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.

All three of us are really busy, but this pace is perfect for us.

Since it’s kind of different from what I usually put on Youtube, I don’t think EVERYONE will like it

But I’m really happy if you DO like it.

Please let me know what you think.

Alright, catch you later!

  1. I really enjoyed the video, so I was shocked at first (I watched it before I read your blog post today) when you spoke English, he answered in Japanese and you kept speaking English! *g*
    Now I finally get the idea behind it! ^-^

  2. I like this format, it’s similar to my experience here in Japan but I do not speak as much Japanese as you do. The rhythm of the conversation may be a little difficult. We expect Micchiy to speak Japanese but we never know what language Mikaera understands or will speak. Maybe that is part of the fun. Ganbatte!

  3. I like it!! ^^ is really entertaining and also really useful🙂 i’m waiting for the next episodes… Wish you~~ success guys❤ ^_^

  4. Did you notice the trash fly on the ground? >.>
    Haha, anyway, I really love this new series. You are doing bigger and better things and I hope it keeps getting better! It was fun watching this. I love how the conversation is in both languages and it already has helped me pick up a few words. Keep at it! I will continue to watch!😀

  8. I LOVE the opening song! It’s catchy and fun. And I actually liked the concept of the show, where you repeat the whole story along with the subtitles. Please don’t stop😀
