S/mileage’s 3rd Audition Process To Be Streamed Live On Nico Nico

25 07 2011

The 3rd audition process for S/mileage’s audition has been revealed to be streamed live on Nico Nico.

As you might remember, the 2nd round of the auditions also was streamed live on Nico Nico and got a great success since most of the fans tuned in to watch the auditionners perform and check out the talents each one has, so this will definitely please many fans and will give us an amazing chance to check out the selected members for this round.

The participants for the last round were about 50, so after the eliminations and selections for this round, there should be about 10~20 girls left, and even though we don’t know if it’s the last audition process, with the few participants left, I’m guessing it is.

It’ll be really interesting to see which girls got selected since there were some fan favorites such as Miyamoto Karin and Takeuchi Akari from H!P Eggs, or the “purple girl” and “#801”, so I’m waiting impatiently to see who got in and who didn’t, and since the participants are only a few left, it will give us more time to see each one alone and judge her talent and performance.

Hopefully everyone can tune in on time to watch the live process since it seems that the first tentative was a big success, and after it is aired, there will be a post up on the site summarizing the 3rd audition round.

The streaming will be on 7/27 at 14:00 JST.

EDIT: Important info for those who want to watch the Nico Nico stream and don’t know how!

You will need an account to view the stream, you cannot watch the live streaming without an account (this has been verified), but I made a new account on the English version of Nico Nico and I successfully managed to log into the Japanese site without a problem.

I suggest that everyone who wants to watch the stream make an account and log in before the stream begins, that way you are all ready once the doors open to watch the streaming. Here is a short but useful step by step guide on how to log into the Japanese Nico Nico site with a NicoNico.com account:

  1. If you don’t have an account on NicoNico.com go to http://www.niconico.com/ and click Login / Register at the top, then Create new account and follow the steps (they are in English so there shouldn’t be any problem)
  2. After you finish verifying your account go to http://www.nicovideo.jp/ and click ログイン
  3. On the box underneath ログインメールアドレス enter the email address you used to make the account on NicoNico.com
  4. Enter your password in the box underneath パスワード
  5. Click the blue button below after you entered your info
  6. That’s it! At the top of the site you should see something similar to 一般会員 example さん (instead of “example” you should see the nickname for your account)

Doors for the event should open at the time mentioned, so please verify what time it is in Japan by visiting this site and click the silver door with the TV.

The gold door is only for premium members, but normal members can still watch the stream, although there will be times when your kicked out of the stream due to a premium member entering, in that case just refresh the page or visit the page for the stream and click the silver door again, you should enter without any problems.

It’ll be 7 AM here (Central European Summer Time), so: Standing up early, I’ll be so dead afterwards =_=.

Could anyone please tell me in how far we can watch it? Do you have to register on Nico Nico at all and if yes, do you have to take a normal account or a Premium account?

From what I know, you need to sign up to watch videos on the site but you don’t need a premium, just normal account ^^

I plan on watching the broadcast from start to finish and writing my own report so yes there will most likely be another special post for this round if everything goes according to plan, and since there will be about 10 ~ 20 girls only it should be a lot easier to keep track of everyone ^_^

Great! I can stay up late on Tuesday to catch the beginning! -_-
Do you have to have a Nico account to be able to view it? Or is it like YouTube: you can watch stuff but can’t comment or anything?

A Nico Nico account is needed to watch the streaming ^_^
But I just verified that an account on NicoNico.com will work on the Japanese Nico Nico Douga site (nicovideo.jp) as well ^o^

Just register an account on http://www.niconico.com/ then after that is done go to http://www.nicovideo.jp/ and click ログイン on the top, then just enter your email and password and you should be logged in to Nico Nico Douga ^_^
