Bakushow Mondai After School King – 12-1996

Time for another look at a Satellaview radio piece that has been uploaded on NicoNicoDouga!
This was uploaded a few weeks back, chalk me not posting about it earlier to working on Sega Pico research for Team-Europe.

Well, speak of the Shirikon Chounaikai!

So, merely a day after this post is the upload date of a NicoNicoDouga upload;

爆笑問題のシリコン町内会・96年6月末くらい?

Yeah, so I posted about a week later. I tend to like taking a bit of time on pad out my postings. ^^;

I’m gonna assume once again that folks at NND are posting things in response to the blog again. Which is always a good thing.
I really appreciate this stuff. :)
I owe a lot to the Satellaview fans that browse and upload to NicoNicoDouga; without them, this blog may not have come to exist.
I hope that, sometime (particularly after I learn some Japanese better), I’ll be able to give back to them in a more direct manner.
For now, though, hopefully this simple message will work:
ありがとうございます。

Bakusho Mondai no Shirikon Chounaikai is a radio program, it’s format being pretty similar to the various other ones I’ve obtained so far.
シリコン町内会 translates to “Silicon Neighborhood Association”, and the show seems to cover various Nintendo news and games.
The title of the NND up suggests that no one is certain exactly when this particular episode broadcasted. It’s tentatively marked on the June 1996 date because… well, about mid-way in, a Nintendo 64 radio ad is prominently featured. It’s kinda eerie to think about, actually… that ad may have marked a moment when the Satellaview’s days were numbered.

BTW, the audio doesn’t quite match up with what the ROM shows. There’s likely more episodes yet to be heard.

Embed after the “more” link.

Bakusho Mondai’s own “After School King”… and something else?

So, before getting into the meat of the article, I’ll note that I’ve attempted to change the “cake” icon on the address bar of the page to something more appropriate. Hope it works well!

*coughcough*

Anyway! A bit ago, NicoNicoDouga, you know how this typically goes, right? Based on what I could get out from the audio clips, this is essentially the “complete” episode of the radio show where they talked about Tactics Ogre a lot.

“After School King” went through a lot of different hosts. I wonder why that is?
I still haven’t gotten any archives of the “Shirikon Chounaikai” show that the 2nd ROM down here is based off of.

There was also another radio program uploaded under the “Satellaview” search, but I don’t think it’s related to the Satellaview specifically… it’s dated 2005. Well, I only have myself to blame for not being able to read Japanese enough. If anyone can help me figure this little tidbit out, that’d be nice. Regardless of it’s relevance, it’s got the “St.GIGA” branding, so it should be useful regardless. The title Google-Translates out as “Analog Waves”.

Satellaview Profiles – Hikaru Ijuin (伊集院光)

For a while, I’ve been trying to look up some of the personalities associated with the Satellaview – mostly for the programs they were associated with in the service itself, as well as a sampling of some of their other contents.

This article should have some nice bits about the Comedian Hikaru Ijuin. Proper Japanese spelling 伊集院光.

You’ve probably seen that name on this blog already. That’s because Hikaru Ijuin is the host of
伊集院光の放課後の王様 (“Hikaru Ijuin’s After School King”)
as well as
伊集院光の怪電波発信基地 (Was never quite sure, but I think now it’s meant to be “Hikaru Ijuin’s Bizarre Radio Signals”)
Of which I put some of the episodes up on here. In fact, it seems I may have indeed put up all of “After School King” – according to the Japanese Wikipedia that program aired from 95-96, while the latter show aired from 96-97.

He’s had a long history of other programming, sandiwching his two Satellaview programs like giant-size buns that make you ask where the beef is.

In both of the programs, Ijuin and his guests, Laughing Group (笑組) – would voice out ongoing serial comic skits during set time intervals, each consisting of a thematic “gag”, like the Reverse Funny Aneuryism “Dragon Quest IX” skits, or skits involving sexy girl voices.

Rather certain now that that kind of stuff, Nintendo would no longer let fly.

Hikaru Ijuin has quite a lot of his content uploaded on NicoNicoDouga – in fact, for all the Satellaview radio I’ve got, there’s nearly double in terms of unrelated radio shows. Most of the stuff is more his recent works than his past works, however.

Radio – The last of “After-School King?”

These next three embeds are the last episodes of “The After School King” put up on NicoNicoDouga. The very last on, in particular, looks like it may have been a finale episode. :(
I kinda wish I could have some of this translated, so I can figure out the context. Read the rest of this entry »

Looking more into St. Giga.

As a Satellaview researcher I’ve wondered about the nature of St. Giga – and how they got involved in an ambitous Nintendo project – for a while. Even as I’ve looked up Satellaview content, I’ve also looked into researching St. Giga as a whole.

For a while I’ve tried entering search terms with their title on NicoNicoDouga – and recently I’ve been getting results. You can check some of them after the snip.

More importantly though, the English Wikipedia has been doing articles based on translations of the Japanese Wikipedia.
I’d like to thank anyone who helped on that. :)
It’s very helpful, and it gives me context into some of my search results, too.

Whether it be the experimental New-Age music, or the just-as-experimental yet radically different Satellaview, St. Giga’s history was innovation in the music business – which may have been why Nintendo sought them out for this project.

Apparently Nintendo invested stock in them in 93? Funny, wasn’t that around the year the Super Famicom CD projects fell under?
