Half Assed Janken Live Stream Event!

September 16, 2013 by

Heya you Half Assed fans! I have something nice to announce regarding to the 4th AKB48 Janken Tournament Live event on September 18, 2013 19:00 ~ 20:54 JST! We are going to hold a chat when the event airs and if everything goes as planned, we will also have a live stream of the event! πŸ˜€

Before I continue with further details, we call this the Half Assed Janken Live Stream Event because we can only offer a live stream of Fuji TV. Fuji TV will only be airing the 2nd half of the tournament, which we personally don’t mind because that’s definately the most important part of the event. The first half will only be aired on Hikari TV which we don’t have a stream for, mainly because it’s pay tv.

If you remember from last live stream even during the elections, we used a very nice and handy page with a stream and chat and twitter feed on one page. We are going to use that exact same page again!

If you are curious or just wanna check if the stream works for you beforehand, please go ahead! πŸ˜€ You can find the Live Event Center over here: http://half48.net/apps/half48-live-event-center/

So yeah, I’m inviting you to join us watching the 2nd half of the 2013 AKB48 Janken Tournament Live while you have a nice chat with us. I should mention the date and time again; September 18, 2013 19:00 ~ 20:54 JST. Of course me (Mai) and Half will also be there to join you with the discussion. See you then! πŸ˜€

PS: If you need a good timezone converter, stop looking for it because here is the useful one for you.

I find that there’s no better way to tell people to vote for HKT48 other than doing a fake video so here it is.

Also, introducing the AIDOL staff for my HKT48 army. Our team consists of me, Ale, mahousentai, Momo, KKS Haru and MAIcrosoft at this moment. All of them love HKT48 and would love to see them win. They will also help me with promoting and giving suggestions for my appeal posts. πŸ˜€

To those that haven’t voted or confused on who to vote for, please wait until the end of my appeal period. Give me a chance to change your mind if you’re not planning to vote for HKT48. Remember, your votes can influence the path that AIDOL will take in the next three months.

Voting for HKT48 will not only give them more exposure, but will also create new fans. Who knows? When the three months is up, HKT48 might have a big enough fanbase so that other subbing group will start translating HKT48 as well. For the ones that have voted HKT48 so far, I can’t thank you enough.
