Hatsumi has a day job that involves accounting and human resources for a small local business. She is also working on getting her MBA and is studying for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, which she plans on taking at the end of 2018. As a very passionate person, she can be extremely opinionated, but while she may disagree with you, she’ll never disrespect you because of that. If you’re an asshole, on the other hand, all bets are off! Her other interests include Star Trek, reading, and plushies, among other things, and she LOVES wine, so you will always see her with a glass of something or another. Currently, her favorite grape is the cabernet franc. Her preferred game genres are JRPG (Japanese Role Playing Game), RPG (Role Playing Game), and MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game), but she enjoys Action and FPS (First Person Shooter) games if she can play them without getting motion sickness.

Nico is a fairly recent college graduate. He received his BFA in Art Video and is currently pursuing more projects in video editing. He’s far more easy-going than his mom, but like mother, like son, he can get pretty riled up! His list of games varies. From the mind-bending puzzler, The Talos Principle, to big name popular PvP games like PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, he’ll play just about anything. He also has a big fondness for horror games. Can’t forget those exhilarating experiences of The Evil Within or Amnesia: The Dark Descent! Even as a young child, he was fascinated with the horror genre. He would walk around the movie section of store and look at the covers of ALL the horror movies. He was way too scared (and too young) to watch them, but he LOVED just looking at the DVD cases and scaring himself.

Naito is Hatsumi’s husband and Nico’s step-dad. He works in customer service. He’ll pretty much never make an appearance on camera, but he’s always behind the scenes and you’ll hear him in chat. His preferred game genres are MMORPG and Strategy (both real time and turn based). He’s been playing video games since the original Atari 2600 in the 1970’s. (More to come…)
