Administrative Matters 1

Hey everyone, ithebigc here.

I have a couple of changes to announce regarding this blog now that I've returned from Japan and graduated from college.

Since I have relatively more free time now while I'm job hunting and not in school, I've decided to pick up translations of Meru's and Mikurin's G+ in addition to Sakura's G+ for the time being. I'll refrain from making any promises about how long I'll be doing this because that never turns out well for me (and who knows, I might find a job tomorrow...haha, eh T_T) but it's something that I've been thinking of doing since meeting them in Japan. Of course, if someone else already does this, please tell me so I don't need to waste my time.

Meru's special - she's one of the girls I'd say I even disliked before studying abroad in Fukuoka, but after seeing her perform live and meeting and talking to her multiple times, I'd say that she would be the girl I recommend everyone meet, even over Sakura who's my oshimen. She really goes above and beyond for her fans, and while I won't go into it here on a blog meant for translations (that's for another time on Stage48) I want more people to get a sense of how she thinks and what's behind that bubbly exterior.

Miku is also someone else that caught my attention. Not nearly as fun to meet as Meru, but she's clever beyond her age and surprisingly interesting enough to talk to. Nako's cuter, but you're not going to be getting much out of her while Miku can actually hold a decent conversation. So, I hope this also shows through in her G+ for you all.

As for Sakura, of course I'm continuing with her translations. I oshihened after all =P

Sakura's G+ - Posts starting from June 7, 2014 (Day of the Sousenkyo)

Meru's G+ - Posts starting from June 7, 2014 (Day of the Sousenkyo)

Mikurin's G+ - All posts

There might be more changes, but those will be announced as/if they come.
