Hi and welcome to the first Ohatsuu summary of 2013.
What is Ohatsuu?
First of all: for those of you who do not know, 2ch is a huge, anonymous Japanese discussion board that also has its own section for Hello! Project. Following the H!P board of 2ch can be a tedious task: it’s massive, and it’s notorious for its “anything goes” atmosphere that comes along with the anonymity. It can be a tiring read.
However, because of that anonymity, you can sometimes get really interesting, candid sneak peeks at how the Japanese fans think about things in this fandom we share with them. I think it’d be quite a shame to miss out on that, and luckily there’s a site that can help. Ohayou! Project Tsuushinkyoku (or just Ohatsuu) is a blog that compiles some of the highlights of the 2ch H!P board.
So what I’m doing with this feature is translating select threads presented on Ohatsuu. Only partially, though — don’t expect me to kill myself by translating several hundred comments per each post. Basically, it’ll be just the threads I care about and just the comments I care about (or have enough motivation to translate).
