It's not been that long and I still have a lot to catch up with. You might have seen me last night (JST) on "Kazeiro Gakuen" (風色学園) a weekly livestream on NicoNicoDouga run by MachTV in Tokyo. NND has lots of great features, it allows you to make your own livestreams, watch others and upload your own videos. But there are also official livestreams of professional companies like AMUSE, Bandai, and of course MachTV. The site allows you to comment on the livestream in real time as it happens without using any other apps or plug-ins which is what I really loved about it when I started livestreaming there.
Now that I joined a official program, I love it even more - Though I have some troubles reading them on set without my glasses...
From Teacher To Student
This weeks livestream had quite a twist: I entered the show as a guest teacher asking questions about japanese culture in Germany and getting to know the current students.
After a while I got to drop the announcement that I really enjoyed being a teacher on the show, but that I'd like to join as a student if I could.
Of course that was planned out, but still left the other students startled, as they had no clue about it until then.
Though I officially graduated four years back I'm back to studying now, and I actually get to wear a school uniform now which we didn't have back in Germany!
STUDENTS WITH TALENTS
Of course "Kazeiro Gakuen" is no normal school. The students study to become Tarento, Idols and Models.
By gaining points through the weekly challenges and quizzes the students recieve rewards that include photoshootings, CD recordings, etc.
Every now and then the show even has live performances with the students performing and taking their lessons in front of a live audience at a livehouse or concert hall.
I was really nervous at first, but the team behind the show and of course the cast were so nice that my nervousity quickly changed into excitement.
