News flash! I'm going to be appearing on NHK regularly this summer as a yokai commentator! I've joined the ranks of the show Topics Eikaiwa, an educational series for students of English as a second language.
Every episode of Topics Eikaiwa contains an English-dubbed episode of the anime series Little Charo. This season is set in Tohoku, where Charo runs into all sorts of yokai, like Tengu, Kappa, Tanuki, and more. (You can see weekly previews of the Japanese version here.)
After every English episode comes my own little segment, called "Wonder Tohoku," where I describe the yokai and the associated folklore in English. I keep things short and simple because the targets are intermediate-level English students. If you live in Japan, starting on July 4, you can see Topics Eikawa every Wednesday at 6:00am and 10:00pm, all summer long. So sit tight... and don't let the yokai bite!
