Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

Happy New Year's Eve, everyone! Wow, another year just past by so fast.. In all truth, I really want the year to be over and for the new year to start already /whacked; I personally feel this year has been pretty eventful for all of us. So many things has happened and now I just want 2017 to come already and give us – including me – all a fresh start. The New Year is right next door~ It's tomorrow and I feel so ready for it!

Airi's Top 20 Most Loved J-pop Songs of 2016!

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAAAAAAAIN. WOOO~♪

I've been really bad at blogging this past year, but if there's one thing that I would never not blog – it would be this! My entry for my top most loved songs of the year! Last year, I did forty and well- that was quite something. It was really long and originally, earlier this year, I wanted to top 50 but I knew there was no way I can write that much in time. /whacked;

I listened to a lot of songs this year from a variety of genres. I love J-pop but recently I've been listening to a lot of Korean pop music too and some American pop music. I've been all over the place. So to make things simple- this entry will have my top 20 most loved J-pop songs. And if you're curious about K-pop, it will be on my diary blog (cuz I can post whatever I want in it, hehe).

I listened a lot of good J-pop songs and a lot of bad J-pop songs. But what came as my most favorite, most loved songs of the year? Here's my list of what those songs are!

(Late) Happy Holidays from Genki Pika Pika!

This is pretty late, but I just want to say happy holidays! I hope everyone had a good Hanukkah or Christmas or Kwanzaa.. or if you don't celebrate anything, I just hope you had a good day! I originally intended to post this exactly on Christmas day but I really wanted to spend time with my family – I barely touched my social media at all.

I want to briefly apologize for not posting anything as of recently. I finished finals, and been preoccupied with other stuff. I wanted to do a Christmas review, but I had no time. /whacked; However, it's not too late for me to not post anything. Just letting everyone know right now, there's still my New Year's Eve annual entries such as my top songs for the year. I've been working on that and it'll be posted on time as always!

Again, I just want to wish everyone a Happy Holidays!

Until my next post, jyaa ne~

Loverin as the Center! A Review of Morning Musume's "Sou Janai" MV and Song!

Fans of Makino Maria, this may be your lucky day. Makino Maria (also known as Loverin to her most dedicated fans) has been chosen to be the center of one of Morning Musume's A-sides known as Sou Janai. It has been awhile since the last time I actually done a review on Morning Musume. To be exact, it's been two years.. two years. What the heck. What has gotten into me? For my 'comeback' (not rlly) review, I'll be taking a look at this song. Do I like it? Do I hate it? You'll have to read the entry to see!

(Belated) Happy Five Years of 10ki! ♥

 I honestly think September 29th is a pretty good day, for me personally. It's the day when I started blogging back in 2012 and when one of my favorite male groups Sexy Zone (still not over the name 'til this day. Like why?) has debuted. But do you know what day it is also? This is the day, when the 10th generation of Morning Musume debuted. This is the day they joined the group. I usually don't do many entries like this. (Heck, I didn't really do a post for Sexy Zone. Sorry, guys) But it's been five years. And who would've thought that they would become my most favorite generation?

Yes, I know this is late. Yeah, a whole week late! Whoops.
I had tests to do, okay? I don't wanna fail my classes! I really want a 4.0 gpa ;3;

Houkago Princess sets out on a Roman Holiday! An Initial Thoughts Review


The last time we heard from Houkago Princess, they were mermaids under the sea with their third major debut single Seishun Mermaid along with the graduation of 2.5 generation member Miyashita Mayuka. Although I will not go into details about my thoughts on their single (a review of that is coming soon!), I will say that I deemed the single to be so-so. Now, the members of Houkago Princess are back with their twist on Princess Ann from Roman Holiday!

The End of an Era– My Thoughts on ºC-ute's Impending Disbandment in 2017

To those who may not have heard the news yet, it has been announced that the idol group ºC-ute from Hello! Project will be disbanding after their 2017 concert in Saitama Super Arena. There are lots of articles and blog entries about it so I feel like it's probably unnecessary for me to link them all. I originally wanted to write this entry after learning about the news last night. However, it's probably best for me to do it the day after– so that I can collect my thoughts and perhaps find the right words to say.

Please do pardon me if I ramble a lot in this entry.
