About Me

I was first introduced to Morning Musume in 2001, but didn't really become a fan until 2002. My obsession peaked around 2003, when I really started buying albums and singles instead of just watching the videos online.

I spent the 2007-2008 school year in Japan and was lucky enough to see concerts with Maki Goto (twice!), Aya Matsuura, Natsumi Abe, and v-u-den. I also attended an Ongaku Gatas event and saw two plays, one a musical, starring Hitomi Yoshizawa. The two plays I saw also included the likes of Ayumi Shibata, Mai Satoda, Ayaka, Atsuko Inaba, and Yuki Maeda, so I certainly got quite the fill of H!P while in Japan! I even got to meet and shake hands with the under appreciated Yuki Maeda. My favorite memories, however, would have been when Hitomi Yoshizawa caught my eyes twice during that Ongaku Gatas event, and her sweet smile when she waved back at me is something I'll never forget! I got to see her again in 2009 when Hangry & Angry came to the U.S., but it just wasn't the same as that special time.

Today's H!P doesn't do much for me, sadly! I like a lot of the stuff Berryz puts out and Morning Musume still catches my attention every now and then, but the flame has fizzled out. It doesn't help that with the graduation of all the OG members, current H!P all became younger than me!
Instead, I follow Maki Goto's new career under avex, look around for snippets of what Hitomi Yoshizawa's up to, and watch old videos. Sigh!

Outside of all that, well...! I'm mostly a big video game fan, have been studying Japanese for years with the hopes of becoming a translator, and like listening to all sorts of music and going to the movies. ^^; Other Japanese artists I enjoy include T.M.Revolution, Mika Nakashima, L'arc~en~Ciel, and GLAY.
