I had a really awesome time yesterday while broadcasting my first Jamaipanese live show via ustream. I topped out at a whopping 12 viewers with a few people missing out on the show time. The main feature of the first live show was to draw the winners for the kanji poster and audio tours giveaway. The poster was easily the most popular of the prizes. It was a moderately smooth show as I was fortunate enough to have an experienced ustreamer (@SanMan_ish) logging on and helping me. I practiced a few times trying to ensure I understood the interface and settings but on the day I had to drop kick a bug or two.
Astraea was supposed to be the main co-host but he brought his friends to the party
Other than the giveaway I showed off a few of my anime figures mainly Astraea, Double O Gundam, Seravee, Nendoroid L and the scrumptious Yoko Littner. Also chatted about Operation Visit Japan, the second episode of the All Hail Japan podcast and answered a few questions. A few peeps have asked afterward why I did not record the episode and why I will not record future ones and its simple – you only get one time to tune in and a recording would just spoil the vibe – thats why its a “live show” afterall ^_^. HUGE thank you to the sponsor of the prizes White Rabbit Press – check out their website NAOW!
