Bye Bye Akihabara News, I’m Resigning My Post as CEO

Today is April 1st and in Japan the beginning of a new fiscal year, and today I made it official, I’m stepping down from my CEO post at HIC Publications.

The main assets of HIC Publications will now be owned and controlled by a Japanese company, while I’m going to work on other websites. I’m keeping and will focus on working closely with Japanese cable TV for some test driveing and start a new Website centered around Japanese fashion and models…

Rest assured that during this transition I’ll keep on working a bit on Akihabara News and make sure they don’t screw things up, so you’ll still see me around for the next three more months or so… Meanwhile, Komagawa LLC, the company who bought HIC Publications, allowed me to show you a piece of video that will be hosted on my new fashion Website… Enjoy! And welcome to my new website ShibuyaNews!
