A man from deepest darkest Wales who’s been totally obsessed about Japan for many years now but which has only got worse since first going there on holiday in August 2006 (returned 7 times since then - March 2007 , December 2007, December 2008, July 2009, March 2010, December 2010 and December 2011). I’ll be returning again in November 2012 for my 9th visit. I love everything about the country – history, people, anime, manga, music, TV and movies. Tokyo is without a shadow of a doubt my all time favorite city in the world! Nakano and Akiba is heaven on Earth for me – spent countless hours there trawling through the shops!! It was way back in 1999 that I first became a fan of Japanese pop/rock music through the mighty X-Japan and L’arc En Ciel. Still love listening to both of them to this day. I then progressed onto the idol scene in 2005.
A big fan of AKB48 and SKE48 especially the members Rino Sashihara, Minami Takahashi, Yuki Kashiwagi, Yuko Oshima, Rena Matsui, Haruka Nakagawa, Mina Oba and Kumi Yagami.
I’m also love listening to these artists:
Southern All Stars
Dreams Come True
Chage & Aska
The Brilliant Green
PS – And if you’re wondering where the title of the blog comes from it’s a phrase from Kamen Rider Kiva when one of the characters transform!
I also have an Asian movie blog called Sadako’s Movie Shack if you have an interest in Japanese, Thai, Korean and Hong Kong movies.
