It has been a while since my last post. I have been busy with university, and still am to be honest, but have very quickly done a video so that I don't make you wait too long. It's another Shabekuri 007 episode, this time it's one that I chose rather than a request (these seem to be increasing lately). Sorry, but it's easier to be motivated if it's something I want to do. I"m sure you'll understand anyway. If not then too bad I suppose.
Well anyway, this episode features two Japanese national team soccer players (or more correctly "football", unless if you're American or Australian or Japanese that is...). One is Nagatomo Yuto, a side back who now plays for Inter Milan, one of the most famous teams in the world (but also hated for various reasons). The second is Okazaki Shinji, a prolific goalscorer (for the national team anyway) who currently plays regularly for the German club, Stuttgart. He plays as midfielder for Stuttgart however, so that may be a reason for less goals. Maybe.
There has been a sudden rise in the quality of Japanese players after the World Cup 2010, and there seems to be a Golden Team in the making with more and more players being scouted by European clubs. Even the women's team impressively became World Champions last year and the future of Japanese football is looking bright with many promising youngsters also being found one after the other. There's going to be a Japan vs Australia match near where I live in June......not sure who to support. Probably Japan but either way I gotta go!

Shabekuri 007 (2011.07.04) Nagatomo Yuto and... by juxtapose31
Is a world famous striker from Cameroon. He is one of the greatest players ever in the game, and has one the African Player Of The Year Award numerous times. He was playing for Inter Milan at the time but moved to an ultra rich Russian team for an uber-mega-bucks contract.

Is another Japanese person playing in Germany. After being signed as an virtual unknown by Borussia Dortmund for a very small price, he has quickly developed into what most people consider their most important player and also one of the most spotlighted stars around the world.
Has appeared briefly in a few shows that I've subbed, or at least mentioned. He or she, whichever you think he/she deserves to be referred as, is a popular TV personality for his scathing and direct comments regarding various topics and people. Since Japanese TV usually tries to keep everything all rosy and cheery like Sesame Street, people like her are a breath of fresh air at times.
Is a trademark food from the Kansai region, which includes places like Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto etc. It means. お好み焼き's "Konomi" 好み, means "(Things that you/I) Like" while "Yaki" 焼き means 'fried/cooked'. So basically it means "stuff you like, cooked". True to the name, people try putting many things into okonomiyaki, although the outcome is basically the same taste unless if you put in something totally outlandish. Well that's what I think anyway. No, I don't like it that much, although every other Japanese person seems to love it.
