NPB secretary general Kunio Shimoda returned to Japan on Sunday after attending an Asia Series steering committee meeting.  His comments to reporters:

We did not talk about ending [the Series] this year or continuing [the Series] next year. ... [If we do have a Series next year,] I do not think Japan will host it because we [probably] will not be able to find any sponsors.
