Apart from my 30 min TV show Culture Japan, I'm on another weekly TV show in Japan called "Check Time" . This time its one of those morning news shows - I have a weekly Culture Japan corner where I choose a topic in the Japanese Pop Culture field thats popular with foreigners.
This time round however, I'm only directing the show and am leaving the production entirely to one of my comrades at Tokyo MX TV - this helps me free up my schedule to do other stuff but means that the final editing style is not necessarily to my tastes ^^;
I've committed to do the corner for the next 3 months but Tokyo MX want me to do it for a year! @.@ As with Culture Japan, I'll be involving those of you who fancy being on Japanese TV - something for you to stick down on your resume or profile. Folks who are in Tokyo who end up on the show will also get to network with folks in the industry - I however only show you the door - its up to you to walk through it.
Anyway, the first episode was broadcast a few weeks ago and was a Nendoroid Ranking based on AmiAmi sales. Here I'm at the AmiAmi offices with Yumi-chan who you have already seen in Episode 12 when we toured Asakusa together.
Check Time is on every Tuesday morning on Tokyo MX TV and my corner is usually on around 7:30 AM. Tokyo MX also upload my slot to YouTube too - check out the first broadcast below!
