Introducing NSK Research Student: Malcolm


What up guys! I’m Malcolm Harris aka SleepyOta! I’m the new NSK research student. You may remember me from my community articles.

Let me introduce myself for those who don’t know me. First off, I’m 18 years old and I’m half-African-American and half-Malay guy who spent the last two years of high school living in Malaysia. I recently moved to Virginia to live with a family friend and to attend community college because well, living internationally meant I can’t really afford a 4-year university quite yet considering the tuition I would have to pay.

I’ve been a casual Japanese music fan for several years now but had only become a true idol fan when I found this site back before its name change to NSK. I had originally liked Japanese groups such as Halcali, Puffy, Perfume, and several H!P groups but I was never really invested until I found AKB and started learning the members. I absolutely love idols now and besides the 48’s and H!P, I love smaller groups such as Momoiro Clover, BiS, Tokyo Girls’ Style, and IDOLING!!!  as well. My oshimen is HKT’s Sashihara Rino but I also like many other members.

Besides idols, I’m an electronic music fan, an occasional gamer and an avid reader. I’m extremely active on Twitter so give me a Tweet Tweet Follow Follow. I want to thank you all for reading this and supporting me on my community articles. I never liked writing in school but I thank you all for the opportunity to enjoy writing about something I’m passionate about. I look forward to writing more and I hope you’ll keep supporting me.
