Kojima Update

Satoshi Kojima took to Twitter to announce that his rehabilitation is nearing its end. While he still seems to be struggling with his injury, the leader of Bread Club was in good spirits as usual.

(via Twitter translation) Today’s training, the end. It becomes inconvenient for a moment, and though it is not possible to go to the hospital, it is good because it was able to train. My ordeal is still going on, but the event is decided and I’m impatient in a good way σ(^_^;). I would like to practice a lot more and show the energetic appearance in front of all of you.
