I realized something as I began part 4 of “The Trials and Tribulations of Teaching English in Japan.”
Unlike other series I’ve written in which the story had concluded before I began writing them, this series is, essentially, Live (give or take a few hours…it’s not video after all) and continuing…
So, I have decided to rename it. From this post on it will be known as Live from Locohama, and it will not be broken up into parts, but rather into episodes. Season 1 will run from now through the end of the school year in March. Season 2 will start in April at the beginning of the new school year (assuming I’ll still be working here.) Maybe I’ll even do updates on Twitter and what-not, if people really dig it…
This ought to be interesting: A Reality Show via a blog. (-:
Cast of Characters (so far):
Loco Sensei- Narrator / central figure
Kawaguchi-sensei- Loco’s partner in crime / trusted co-worker
Takahashi-sensei- Big breasted, dime-dropping, back-stabbing colleague
Yoshida-Sensei- Cowardly co-worker
Matsui-Kun – Future Yakuza, former nemesis, burgeoning partnership?
Satou-Kun – Matsui’s side kick, future yakuza, sneaky little shifty eyed bastard who would probably kill at Matsui’s behest.
Tarou-kun / Yuuji-Kun- The Onani Brothers, future manzai (comedy) team and current pranksters
Hideki-kun – Returnee with a vocabulary that includes words like nigger, etc…
Risa-chan – Haafu (half black / half Japanese) and recipient of Hideki’s profanities
BOE Lady- The big boss from the Board of Education
Silky Tony- Smooth-talking silky-tongued prick from the COMPANY
And I’ll be introducing new characters as they move into and out of relevance.
Today I’ll be introducing: Mika-chan
Stay tuned for Season 1 / Episode 1 entitled: Mika’s got a knife!
This is gonna be good….
