Welcome to Issue #9 of Good Morning Aomori, where we pride ourselves for being slightly more dependable than the Aomori weather!

We welcome three new members to GMA this issue: Jade Bonus, Chris Orr and Essa Wiseman.

  • Chris, a CIR in Aomori City will be giving us music info in MediaBug.
  • Jade, an ALT in Towada, will be Chris’s Movie/TV-based counterpart for MediaBug. but will also occasionally be doing special features for GMA.
  • Essa, an ALT in Kuroishi, will be GMA’s new publishing manager, working behind the scenes to make sure you get your bi-monthly fix.
