Wasamin Internet Cheki Event, Plus New Goods!

For the first time this year, and the first time since she recovered from COVID-19, Wasamin held an internet cheki signing event.  I haven’t had any contact with her, virtually or otherwise since late last year, so this was a “must-participate” event as far as I was concerned.  Moreover, I decided to go for 5 chekis to get the bonus pic for the first time.  Fans had a choice to participate in the afternoon or evening event.  I chose the evening so I could watch it live.  Here are both event videos, which are archived on YouTube…


Here’s the matinee event as well, which per usual was a bit shorter…


The first question was when my turn in the 2-3 hour event would come.  I applied early, so I was hopeful I wouldn’t have to wait too long.  My turn came at around 34:15. My first comment at that point was whether I could flirt with her during this event (a reference to her concert watching event coming up on the 20th, where they are advertising a chance to flirt with Wasamin) I followed it up with “Hey Baby!” which she thought was funny, as well as the comment I sent in, which said I was happy because she is healthy, and that I’m looking forward to her rescheduled birthday event. That was why she responded with the comment about May 8th.  I sorta half-paid attention for the rest of the event.  I anticipated my package arriving on Friday or Saturday…

The chekis arrived Saturday afternoon, during a particularly heavy rainstorm. I quickly opened the package to get the chekis out of the sopping wet envelope. It was my first time seeing the photos closeup since she flashed them across the screen so quickly during the event…

As I mentioned in the post on the day of the event, she spent two minutes a) telling me I can’t flirt with her in the event (in response to my query) b) laughing at my “Hey baby!” comment, c) laughing at all the he fans congratulating me, and d) saying how cute my pre-written message was. All in all a successful encounter, and I especially like the “Stay home” cheki with her laying on a couch…

I also received my new goods package last month. There were a few new items, including a 12-color penlight, photos, and the two items I bought. I would love to get the penlight, and may still get it later, but the 4000 yen price tag was a bit steep, so I skipped it for now…

So yeah, the Wasa-calendar and the Wasa-mask. The mask is a little small for my face, but it works perfectly if I want to “double-up” and wear it on top of a regular mask. In fact, that’s what I’ve been doing. It has made for some fun reactions with my junior high school students. The calendar, is cute, but to be honest I prefer the cheaper CD-version, which you can sit on a table. I have the new version hanging randomly above my back window over my computer desk.

Up next for Wasamin is her online live first concert, where she is going to do a live commentary on the show from 2016. She also announced a joint-concert in May, as well as a summer play with Mizumori Kaori. The play is probably #1 on my priority list, but I might splurge for the online commentary show as well. We’ll see.

  1. The photographs are very nice.

    She should also do the “Home Alone” pose with hands on cheeks like Macaulay Culkin.
