The Nova Bankruptcy Revisited

Not that you need more reminders about the fall of Nova and the chaos over the past year, but Jordan Pearson offers an excellent account of the collapse.

It would have sucked to be Jason Cornish:

The Return of the Bunny

Things are apparently looking good at G.communication. Its president, Masaki Inayoshi, sat down with the Chunichi Shimbun to talk about the past year.

For Rent

The luxury “office” that former Nova president Nozomu Sahashi claimed was actually a showroom is no more. We're Sorry, Please Come Back

The General Union has posted details of an agreement between G.communication/ on their website. As you are aware, ever since NOVA went bankrupt, the General Union has been busy trying to get G.communication to rehire all of the instructors that were fired when took over. It appears that they have succeeded.


How NOVA Lost in the Courts

From Gendai net comes a story about...wait for it...students having trouble booking lessons! It's deja vu all over again. (I'm sure I've used that cliche already. Is there an echo in here?)

Teachers Still Out of Work and Students Not Returning

If you've been following the developments of neo-Nova since its collapse, then The Japan Times story about Nova instructors and staff who are still out of a job six months after G.communication took over is old news.

G.communication's craptacular rebirth of Nova continues.
