Going On Road Trip For 2 Weeks.

July 15, 2016

I will be leaving for a 2 week road trip to the USA (very soon), I’ll be in San Francisco next weekend to attend J-Pop summit. I’ll write about my experience there, when I get back. Maybe also about my road trip. I’m not as excited about the guest as I was 2 years ago, the 1st time I went. I’ll still have fun, I’m actually looking forward to seeing ” Tokyo Performance Doll”.

I probably won’t be posting anything the next 2 weeks.

I would like to thank everyone who check out this blog, hope you like it. You’re welcome to come back anytime you want.

Thanks, For a Great Year.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 170,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 7 days for that many people to see it.

Back from Vacation.

September 20, 2015

I’m back from a 2 week vacation in China, Shanghai & Nanjing to name a couple of cities in that 1st week. Yunnan in the 2nd week. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to catch an SNH48 show while in Shanghai, maybe next time. I really enjoyed my time in China  I’m definitely going back, maybe some time next year. Hopefully  I can learn abit of mandarin by then, just get by.


Off To China for 2 weeks.

September 4, 2015

I’m leaving for China later on today, will be back on September 18th or 19th. Will be in Shanghai and surrounding area for the 1st week, 2nd week I can’t remember the places. I think it’s a long ways North.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to or have time to post anything during that time.


J-Pop Stuff I’ve Ordered March, 2015.

April 5, 2015

I ordered these in 1st day of March, I received it just over a week ago. I didn’t order anything in February.

AKB48 “Green Flash”, I got all 4 Regular Editions. Didn’t get the Limited Edition, the tracklist is the same as the Regular Edition. The only difference is the cover and the Limited Edition comes with an event ticket, unless you lived in Japan it’s useless. Whereas the Regular Edition comes with a photo.

Although more times than not their covers are very ugly, this one is not to bad I kinda like it. The overall content or packaging of their CD’s is very good as usual, they try give you your moneys worth.

Type A & Type S. I got a Haruka Shimazaki (Top) photo with Type A and Sayaka Yamamoto (Bottom) Type S.

Type N & Type H. For Type N I got a Miyuki Watanabe (Top), seems like I always get a Milky picture. I like her so that's not bad. For Type H I got member who I don't know, I could guess. If I guess and I'm wrong I will look like a fool.  If anyone can tell me I would appreciated it, Thanks.

Since 2012 Momoiro Clover Z and AKB48 are the only J-Pop artist, where I would buy atleast one version of any single or album they release. Anyways I got the Limited Edition A & B of Momoiro Colver Z single “Seishunfu”, as usual like all their other singles. Packaging is excellent, second to none. The only thing I don’t like about buying a Momoiro Clover Z single, is they don’t really give any incentive to buy it. If you do get anything it’s just a little picture card of Shiori Tamai.IMG_0485 (1380x918)___________________________________________________________________

Me being a really big Haruna Kojima fan, I just had to get her latest Photo Book. Just like all her other Photo Books or photobooks (There is a difference) that I have of hers, she doesn’t disappoint.IMG_0502 (1117x1360)

This came with the photobook, it's a Post Card.

My last couple of orders, I’ve been buying too many magazines. I have to cut that down to 1 each order.

Weekly Playboy No. 11 2015, I just got this cause it had nice cover of Yuki Kashiwagi.IMG_0488 (960x1440)______________________________________________________________

BOMB April 2015, BOMB is a great J-Pop magazine. Nice cover of Hauka Shimzaki and nice article on her. Also it includes a very nice poster of her, only if they didn’t fold it up. They also have a nice one on Rina Kawaei, and Ayami Muto. Ooooh, she’s so cute. Alot more but too many to mention, they even got something on Erina Mano. Wow, she looks really nice.IMG_0490 (1168x1440)

GirlPop Spring 2015, probably my favorite J-Pop Idol magazine. They have something pretty good here about Sakura Gakuin. It includes a nice poster and picture of Nogizaka46.

I actually order thses 3 CD’s in late January, which I received in Mid February. I should have posted this earlier, January 2015 orders Part 2.

Just before the Momoiro Clover Z vs. KISS “Yume no Ukiyo ni Saite Mina” single, was about to be released. I just remembered I haven’t order this yet, for some reason I just completely forgot about this single. After looking forward to ordering it for a long time, I meant to order this along with my AKB48 and Berryz Koubou orders back in January. I decided to orders these at “yesasia”, it would have been the cheapest. It’s free shipping if you spent this much, I bought both versions of the single. The cost of the 2 CD’s didn’t amount to the cost were I would be eligible for free shipping, so I needed to get something else that was cheap. I was looking for a magazine, couldn’t find one I like. So I started to look for a cheap CD the best one I could fine was nanoCUNE “Higeki no Macho Man.
