Meanwhile, in Nippon

Rate this Entry
So I'm an Otaku. I love Japanese culture until it's like, wtf. I'm fucking obsessed with Japanese singers/Japanese music in general, I've watched literally COUNTLESS anime (in equally countless genres), Japanese movies, and I can speak Japanese almost fluidly (although I don't understand more than 30% of the language).

Over the years, my love of Japanese pop music took over my love of metal. I found it incredibly ironic that Megadeth was my favorite metal band and Nanase Aikawa was (for a long time) my favorite JPop/JRock singer. OVER A YEAR after I found Nanase Aikawa, I learned that Marty Friedman (the lead guitarist of Megadeth from 1990 to 1999) was a co-lead guitar player (along with Pata of X Japan, arguably the greatest Japanese metal band ever) for her touring supergroup.


I love Mikuni Shimokawa so much that I think I cried when I came to the realization I'd never have the opportunity to have her have my babies.

When I hear some of Ayumi Hamasaki's songs, I get legitimate feels.

Every Little Thing is one of my favorite bands of all time, and Kaori Mochida is one of my favorite singers, honestly.

I could list hundreds of Japanese artists and acts that have moved me over the years.

In all honesty, I posted that just to post this:

Japanese culture FTFW.
