Hey everyone, I just verified the upcoming KouHaku Utagassen programming, so stay tuned:


KSCI (Ch.18 for where I am living)
12/31 (New Year's Eve, Sunday)

For those who don't know what this is, it is a show that features a variety of JPOP(JROCK, JHIPHOP?, etc.) and ENKA artists performing their hits that made the charts in the past year.

 Buy Dramas Out-of-Print..!

You can order copies of some well-known Japanese dramas here. This is pretty invaluable, especially when they're no longer out for rent or purchase.

 J-Drama VHS Tape Giveaway!
- 0 Reply - [0 Translation]
I will be giving away free tv-recordings of Japanese shows at the next Hanasukai as part of my inventory cleanup. I have official DVD counterparts since I have no need for English subtitles. If you are interested, please come by the next meeting. If there are more people interested in the same drama item, I will have some kind of raffling.

Just like youtube.com, you might find this site handy when you're looking to go get that cd single/album at Kinokuniya!


...just another invaluable tool I would add to my music research!

 Wikipedia for Japanese music..??
- 0 Reply - [0 Translation]

So, the site is claimed to have been around since 2004, yet the information within it is well under development. It is nice to see detailed information on Japanese music culture through a clean, consistent, well-structured information window.

 J-POP info and clips on the web..
- 0 Reply - [0 Translation]
As a gaijin, it is hard to find solid information on mainstream J-POP. The following sites are pretty useful to research Japanese music.

For those who are interested in current J-POP chart, here's a reliable url that I occasionally check:

As for video clips, you can visit the following:

 JPOP single review: hamasaki/fairyland
- 0 Reply - [0 Translation]
Fairyland: must-have, must-listen-to for ayu fans. If you didn't digest the music the first time around, WATCH THE DVD that comes w/ the package.. quite an eye opener.

The C/W, alterna, is also packaged w/ the music video. My first impression: Marilyn Manson is gonna have something to say about this ..

 JPOP album review: globe/globe2
- 0 Reply - [0 Translation]
Recommended album for globe fans. As always, it's different from previous albums. On this one, TK noticably dumbs down on his experimental horse to produce some decent tracks. My favorites are Here I am & Judgement. On expectation, Keiko gets into her high shrieking voice (no joke here) that resembles her vocal performance of FACES PLACES. All around, the album is easy to listen to. Within the credit section, there is a faint hint that Yoshiki has left the band.

Here's the DVD.


This site is generally where I go for my import movies, whether they be from Hong Kong or Japan. If Ken was enterprising, he'd set up an Associate Link and he could earn store credit, and set up a Movie night or something. :)

If you have a region-free DVD player, you should have no problem watching this. Alternately, you can try looking for it on Ebay.
