Shortly after Osada Eikichi (長田英吉) had passed away in September of 2001, SM Sniper paid us a visit for a major write-up. “Us” in this case is yours truly and three of sensei’s previous show partners, including the legendary Saotome Hiromi (早乙女宏美).
For posterity I am dropping in the entire article. To my dismay the English translation hasn’t survived multiple computer and OS upgrades. I am not sure which is to blame more for losing this text, my computer illiteracy or my general stupidity. Technically speaking, I am not as stupid as I used to be. In fact, if politically correct language is applied, I am not stupid at all. I am just intellectually impaired.
Now, if you can’t read the scanned text because of all those strange characters, I recommend to check out the various language courses offered by “Japanese In 15 Seconds” that are specially designed for busy people and quick studies. The good news: You can sit back and listen to the entire interview in English here: http://kinbakunomicon.libsyn.com/07-the-wind-beneath-my-rings
Alert readers will note that the photos in the article are by Dr D Vice (unless mentioned otherwise) but that the words put into ink are coming from Osada Steve (長田スティーブ). The former used to be my kink reporter/photographer nom de plume, while the latter is my nawashi name that identifies me as the designated successor of Osada Eikichi sensei.
