There's a new post on Ayako Miyake's blog dated October 8th mentioning KUNOICHI (link: aya-miyake.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/2009/10/o-o-e07c.html ). Presumably she's just saying she watched it and enjoyed it or something, but I thought it was interesting and quite nice that she'd give it a mention
“I watched kunoichi Challenging figure It was really fantastic.”
I can't work out if the challenging thing is like "the competitors challenged and tried their best" or if it is about the course being challenging and a struggle. My japanese friend couldn't really make sense of it in english as it doesn't translate well.
As for her other blog she says she hasnt been able to go for walks because of the rain (i know how she feels) and that LATTE has been helping her, and I think shes made LATTE the head of the household so don't worry kids, shes not got a secret husband.
Check with Ube as my colloqial japanese is terrible.
