Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken, But Keep Your Gaze Locked on It!

One show I don’t think I’ve talked about in this blog much is Eizouken.   Let’s just get this explanation out of the way first (it’s a question that’s been around all season, so I really want to put it to rest) – eizouken (映像研) is short for eizou kenkyuu doukoukai (映像研究同好会), or the “video...
