Mariya Nishiuchi – Love Evolution

She is releasing her latest double A-side ChuChu/Hello there days, but here her debut song “Love Evolution”!
I admit I have a certain bias for her 😀 Since when she was being Nozomi Sasaki’s back dancer in Lotte Fit’s commercial 😀 She is definitely pretty uh?

When we got lost after parting from everyone
your impatient face ended up smiling
Since the very beginning I noticed that
you were looking at me as if you had some kind of feeling

To you who are off guard The Kiss is the Love Potion
the 2 of us in the city on the weekend Love Evolution

what’s the future of j-pop and k-pop?

I don’t listen only to J-Pop/J-Rock but also to Kpop. I think it offers something that japanese music doesn’t offer and its sounds reminds me of the music that I was used to listen to when I was young, that is basically my fav genre of music. Depending on my mood, there are periods where I listen mostly to J-Pop/J-Rock and periods where I mostly listen to Kpop. but I had the feeling that the level of music dropped in the last pair of years.
J-Pop often sounds the same. It’s not so strange that new songs are very similar to songs 7-8 years older. That’s one of the reason that pushed me toward Kpop. Kpop is usually more innovative but lately it seems like they wanna copy american music a bit too much.. Maybe some of you like it, but I don’t 🙂 Read the rest of this entry

My New Blog is Up!!

Hello everyone!

This is the first time I am gonna write a blog so I feel kinda lost ^_^

Why did I take this decision?!? Well, simply cause no one of my friends or any other person around me has the least interest for the things I like the most 😦  Not even the girl I am dating cares 😦  She is more like embarrassed by.. hmmm.. my being different.

So what I am gonna talk about?? I am gonna post about my biggest passion in life: Japan!

I will focus in particular in learning japanese language! I will post “lessons”, articles and stuff to help who is out there and is learning this beautiful language! I’m not a teacher, my japanese is not that great, but I hope to be helpful to everyone is just getting started!

Japanese language is cool, but there will be space for other stuff related to Japan, especially music. I almost only listen to J-Pop/J-Rock, but maybe I will also talk about K-Pop. Not directly related to Japan.. but oei, it’s cool music 🙂

I can’t promise to do not talk about stuff happening in my life or other random things. Sometimes I need to vent, sometimes thoughts randomly comes out of my mind and I don’t know how to stop them 😀

I hope to meet many other persons interested in Japan like me and many many many persons who are learning japanese! We can surely help each other 🙂

I think I am done with my first entry, I wanted to make it short but ok, I don’t like to stick to plans 😀
