Wondering about Ainori #288?

Friday, October 7th, 2005

Ainori #288Ok, thanks to a comment from Emily, one of my faithful readers, I realized that many of you non-Japanese Ainori fans out there might not be aware that I didn’t make a post about this week’s episode, simply because there wasn’t one. The next episode of Ainori will be aired on October 17th (that’s what it says on the picture). So no, I haven’t skipped an episode, nor would I dream of doing so. Writing about Ainori brought me more readers than I could ever have imagined, and I’d like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all of you who visited my blog, whether it was for Ainori or not. I really appreciate the feedback, and the power rush when I check my stats everyday (hey, I told you I was vain!). But seriously, translating Ainori is also very good to improve my Japanese, so don’t worry, I’m not about to give it up. Cheers, everyone, and keep watching the passengers of the pink van…

Ainori is a popular reality show in Japan (and obviously elsewhere), aired on Fuji TV on Monday nights at 23:00.
