Mayuyu’s 2shot guide!

2014-05-24-08.13.11

What’s up guys, Mayuyu here!

I’m sure a lot of you have already seen people talking about it somewhere… what with the up-coming, 6th AKB album due to be released on the 21st of January 2015!
That’s right, we’re talking about the 2shot event!
People are already asking me “How do I get tickets?” and “How can a foreign fan go to the 2shot event?”. Well, I’ll definitely write a detailed guide and include screenshots for the application process. The problem is, I can’t get screenshots until the application process opens up, now there are posts around on various forums and Tumblr etc where you can find information for such events if you really need to know right now. You don’t have to worry about not being able to get a ticket though, as it’s not “First-come First-served” – just like all other AKB events they hold a lottery. So everyone has a chance, regardless of what point they apply.

AIDOL STAFF BATTLE RESULT

AIDOL staff battle result

The vote counting is finally over.

It has been a great and busy week and I am sure everyone is anxious of the result.

ARE YOU READY FOR THE RESULT?! 

 

Without further ado, please watch the following awesome VTR done by Kiyoko-chan for the result!

I also want to take this opportunity to announce our AIDOL youtube channel!

http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWiElm5ImWtqgOqejSuY3Sg?feature=watch

There had been questions brewing whether how much a translator should sub if they lose and

whether any of the staffs here are unhappy with the translation. I think everyone agreed that we will leave it to trust and everyone including the other translators would do their best to help spread the love the winning group.

I want everyone to know that here in AIDOL, having fun comes first. In this campaign, everyone had!

Everyone agreed to this campaign before it was started and inside we discussed and agreed that whatever the result is, everyone will accept it as they have oshi’s in whatever group that won as well.

I hope everyone enjoyed this event as much as us!

AIDOL Staffs vs YOU! GACHINKO BATTLE!

aidol event

Hello Everyone,

Following up the post on our facebook page, we will have an event. Here are the details.

AIDOL would like to experiment with a new system that we are working on and we need your help!

It is a chat system like IRC – http://oshimen.de/aidol/

We have made it such that you can watch Request Hour 2013 and chat along with fans shouting out and commenting.

This is similar like nico nico douga just that the comments does not appear on the screen.  Shout out to the other fans and show how much you love

your oshimen or group!

During the request hour 2013, Bochan will pop up a question randomly.

“What shall the next song be?!”

Please kindly reply in our chat system set up for this temporary event.

For each correct answer our fans reply, you all will receive 1 point.

For each correct answer our staff reply ( we have an estimate of  4 admin joining ) , We will receive 20 points.

If we have more staffs or lesser public members joining, the points will be balanced out. HOWEVER if there are more fans joining, we will cap our points at 20 points MAX.

ADMINS CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THEIR SPEECH. THEY EACH HAVE A COLOR ON IT!  

Meaning, if you all hit a certain number, we will never win.

Points will be updated on the title bar to see how we are doing.

Now. If you feel bored, you can ask our staffs some random questions as well. I am sure they will be kind enough to answer as long as they

are not too focus on the show itself LOL. We thank you for participating in this event and helping us beta test this new system.

Let’s enjoy Request Hour 2013 along with all the fans! You can start joining the server now already at  http://oshimen.de/aidol/

This chat system to sponsored by Moonflow.tv
