    There's a picture of Yuzu in last year Yukata on this blog, page 5, he's alone on that one. I can't figure how to get the direct link to the picture, could you help, please? I haven't seen this one, it seems.

    @Sorrento
    I like that one, too
    (in that light it kinda looks like he chose the outfit to hide in the wallpaper, doesn't it?)

    if you're interested, for future reference: you just have to put your cursor over the entry on page 5 and the number 88 will appear in the bottom left corner of those pictures. click on that number and you'll get to the individual post. then you just have to right click the picture and can copy the individual url :-)

    Mao looks stunning in traditional Japanese clothing!! Now I wish some company would sponsor Yuzuru for a specific line of yukatas!! (or any clothing brand sponsor would do)

    Its an incredibly difficult school to get into. So congrats to Yuzuru for making it in.

    How exactly are admissions into colleges determined in Japan? Here in the U.S we have a huge application process with personal statements etc..

    is it the same for colleges in Japan?

    do you have a link to that All Japan 2008 SP? It would be awesome if you could share it!
    Thanks in advance!

    Wikipedia is your friend: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higher_education_in_Japan

    About Waseda


    Waseda is a popular university in Japan. The number of applicants per place was 20.5(115515/5630) in the 2011 undergraduate admissions.[50] This number of applicants was 2nd largest in Japan.[51] its entrance difficulty is usually considered as top with Keio among 730 private universities.[52][53][54]

    Nikkei BP has been publishing a ranking system called "Brand rankings of Japanese universities" every year, composed by the various indications related to the power of brand, and Waseda was top in 2010 and 3rd in 2009 in Greater Tokyo Area.[18]
    Private institutions accounted for nearly 80% of all university enrollments in 1991, but with a few exceptions such as Waseda University and Keio University, the public national universities are more highly regarded. Especially, National Seven Universities are the most prestigious. This distinction had its origins in historical factors—the long years of dominance of the select imperial universities, such as Tokyo and Kyoto universities, which trained Japan's leaders before the war—and also in differences in quality, particularly in facilities and faculty ratios.

    ^ Thanks for the info! Judging by the acceptance rate in 2013 (which is a low number of 16%), it must've been quite hard to get into!

    Really? He can't hide like that.

    Thanks for the hint on those pictures links, perhaps I've been too tired to figure it last night.
