Shawako’s radio schedule finally released!

See here for the schedule. Basically the show will air every tuesday this month, starting on the 7th at 21:00.

The show is broadcast on the listen radio app. They have updated recently and no longer accept IP addresses outside Japan, so you will need a VPN to use it.

I will be recording and uploading the episodes, so you will be able to see them here as well.

Shawako’s next character. Cute :D

Recordings of the first 2 eps of Shawako’s radio show

it’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally had a proper look for videos of the broadcast (i’m so lazy….). I knew a Japanese fan must have recorded it!

Ep1

Ep2

ahhhh this is so good :D

Shawako’s online radio

There was another broadcast of Shawako’s radio today, which I missed!! (ahhh I’m so annoyed with myself, I didn’t realise.)

Good news is that there will be another broadcast next Friday (the 12th) at 16:00 Japan time. The broadcast can be seen here, same as last time. This is an A&G special broadcast again. According to the radio show website, the show proper will begin in October (presumably on the Listen Radio app)

This time I’ll be properly home from work (i work rotating 9-5 for a week and then 8-4 for a week), so I’m going to do my best to record it and upload it for everyone.

Honestly I’m a bit annoyed because these A&G broadcasts are essentially intended to promote the ListenRadio shows, but they are only advertised on the A&G website. The homepage and twitter for the show don’t mention the A&G broadcast at all!

Translation: Bubka 05.2014 - “Hata Sawako, found.”

**this translation is from Bubka’s series on the history of SKE48. I have translated the section covering Hata Sawako’s rise in popularity in 2011. I actually bought the magazine for Manatsu’s final photoshoot, and was shocked to see Shawako’s name in there.

it’s a great read for any Shawako fans out there, especially those who, like me, feel like her contribution to SKE is somewhat overlooked at times (i know i’m biased). it’s also wonderfully honest about her many flaws (but i’m not that biased).**
