GSC, Max Factory and Phat Company…


Are all moving offices to the Tokyo Skytree 17th Floor from the 3rd July! (Tues)

Ooh, I can’t believe I’m going to be working inside that building! I still haven’t had a single chance to go there myself, but according to the rumors around the current offices…

 ・ The closest station is Oshiage Station.
 ・ You can get to the offices without ever going outside of the station.
 ・ You need to switch elevators half way up.
 ・ You need to keep a security card for access.
 ・ You seem to be surrounded by glass inside.
 ・ The company president’s room has glass walls.
 ・ The Skytree is big.
 ・ People are worried about getting to work late.
 ・ Nighttime is scary.
 ・ The company president is already looking into the next move.

That about sums up all the rumors – but they really are just things I’ve heard, so I look forward to seeing them for myself in a few days! I am so worried that I’m going to end up loosing my security card…


Back at the old office everything is being packed away!

It’s been around two years that we have been using this building for the offices, and I had a lot less junk to sift through than I expected – I managed to pack everything up quite quickly.

The move before this one was much worse – you can take a look at the previous Japanese blog posts about that move if you’re interested. :P

Anyway, today I’d like to ask for help with this once again…

I’m looking for a new blog title!

At the start the title was:
3 minute walk from Matsudo Station.

Afterwards it changed as follows…
2 minute jog from Matsudo Station.
1 minute run from Matsudo Station.

After that I started to ask for title ideas from readers:
5 minutes by panda from Matsudo Station (nobuno-san)
4 minutes by dog sled from Matsudo Station (Pupu-san)
0 minutes by Google from Matsudo Station (Futagoneko-san)
Move Forward 10 Blocks from Matsudo Station (Haruaki-san)

Seen we’ve moved quite far from Matsudo station now, the title needs to take on a new theme!

The only requirement is that the title must…

have a sense of distance!

I’m looking for something that gives an idea as to where GSC is! I know it’s not that simple to work with, but something along the lines of the previous titles. I really don’t have much of an idea of where the Skytree is, so it’s really hard for me to think of much at the moment either! :P

“I’ve come up with a new title!”


Send me an an email with the title “I’ve come up with a new title!”, along with the title you’ve though of –  I’ll pick the best one which will be placed on the header of the top page of the blog along with your username – you can enter as many times as you like! (Please note that the entries do need to be in Japanese – the translations here are just for understanding purposes!)

The deadline is the 9th July!

However, I’ve also decided to add some forbidden words this time around! These words kept coming up in previous entries, and I’d rather not have them this time!

The Forbidden Words are…
  ・ Matsudo Station
  ・ Crawling
  ・ Moonwalk
  ・ Handstand

As much as I’d love to keep ‘Matsudo Station’ to keep the pattern of the blog, I feel like its a time for a change now, so I’ve decided to block that word out as well… Don’t get me wrong though, I still love Matsudo and I’ll still be going there sometimes – my house is close and Indotei is still there!!

The entrant whose title I select will be getting a little prize along with ten entries selected at random!

    ____   /      \  /   ─    ─\  "Oshiage... Solamachi..." /    (●)  (●)\ |      (__人__)   | ________ \      |r┬-|   ,/ | |        | ノ      `ー'´  \  | |        | /´              | |        | |    l           | |        | ヽ    -一ー_~、⌒)^),-、 | |_________| ヽ ____,ノγ⌒ヽ)ニニ- ̄   | |  |

I’ll be making the final selection for the blog title, so if you have an interesting idea then please send them through!

I’ll looking forward to everyone’s entries!!


But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week!!  (・∀・)ノ゛
