Very exciting news here, folks! About a week ago I submitted a new music video for an NHK contest featuring my character “Haruka Matsumoto”. I came home tonight and found out it’s been accepted! Haruka’s song “Kanashii Uta” (A Sad Song) is competing in NHK’s “We Love Japanese Songs!” Haruka was the winner of The Jogovision Song Contest 2011.

You may view the video and vote HERE!

Please also share with your friends and followers!

BONUS! A behind-the-scenes look at how Haruka’s new costume was made!

ANOTHER BONUS! Haruka’s new webpage!

Needless to say, I am just bursting with excitement! Thanks, everyone for your support, and to Randall E. for his assistance in the making of the video.

Great big Jogoland hugs,

Joseph Thornburg (^_^)
