We describe a set consisting of tuples of integer sequences and provide certain explicit maps on it. We show that this defines a semiregular crystal for and , respectively. Furthermore, we define for any dominant integral weight a connected subcrystal in , such that this crystal is isomorphic to the crystal graph . Finally, we provide an explicit description of these connected crystals .
