Hi!  I just thought it would be fun to do a music review blog of my favorite Japanese artists.  I want this blog to be more personal than others so I’ll probably throw in some other things…

The reason I decided to start a blog was because of Brett over at Kurayami Monogatari, which is also an amazing Nami Tamaki song and for some reason, I agreed.  What I do when I review is usually listen to the single or album around ten times then start typing away while listening to said album or single.  I mostly just write what ever comes to mind and I like to get off on weird tangents… frequently.  I hope all of you can put up with my crazy ideas and sporadic updating!

Random J-Pop Facts

Artist and Song That Introduced me to J-Pop: BoA – Every Heart -Minna no Kimochi- (yes, through InuYasha sadly…) and Dream – My will (again from InuYasha) + why

Artist Who I have been Listining to the Longest: Ayumi Hamasaki

Favorite Artist and Song: Ayumi Hamasaki – Duty and JEWEL

Song That Describes Me: talkin’ 2 myself – Ayumi Hamasaki

My Favorite Genres: Anything catchy, but as of now it has to be oriental sounding ballads (ie: Ayu’s theme of a-nation ’03 or alan’s Ashita e no Sanka) and rock music (ie: Ayu’s GUILTY album)

  10. hi! I read your comment, and sure, we can exchange links! ^^.

  11. Hi love your blog and would be happy to exchange links. Sorry for the late reply! Keep up the great work~

  12. I’m adding you. You are very funny and witty and have loads of potential. My biggest thing would be to run your reviews through spellcheck. Escpecially since it’s a music blog, spelling violin wrong is a big no-no. But you will be great. I enjoyed your TRICK review very much.

    Good luck and keep up the hard work,
    Who’s Afraid of Music?

    • lol Ya… that would be a good thing to check. My BAD!

      Thanks for the support!

  13. Hi there! Your reviews are so funny and interesting. I really enjoy reading them. Want to exchange links?
    Great job on your blog and good luck!

    P.S. By the way, your tagline is incorrect – I LOVE Ayumi Hamasaki :]

  14. Ok! Added ya to my list! Please return to the favor!

  15. Hey~ Sorry I didn’t answer earlier; your comment ended up in our spam pile ^^;. Added your link in return~~.

  16. I’m soooo sorry for the really really really late reply! I totally forgot to tell you that I’ve added your link up! (a long time ago!)

    You’re tagline is so cute! Go Ayu fans!

  17. Just out of plain curiosity, what’s your blog named after?
    (if it’s an Ayu song I’ve never heard of it XD)

    • Oh actually it’s my Xbox 360 username. I was going to use Moon Shadow which was already taken as a blog name and Ashen Twilight I thought always sounded cool and mysterious. I also named it after Lady Ashe from Final Fantasy XII. Oh and it has no relation to the Twilight books. All of the girls in my class are obsessed with those books and I CAN’T STAND IT!!!.

      So to sum things up, I just made it up. =)

  18. hee hee i love ur new About me page!!! how u describe urself with Ayu’s songs!

    btw, I’m sorry I don’t know much JPOP girl groups..i rarely listen to those H!P projects..

    KPop is the king of girl groups!!!!

    • Oh thanks! I have wanted to make it more personal for a while but I just didn’t know what to talk about. I also changed my favorite artist list a bit and Hikki is number 6!!! and depending what she releases next she could move up and replace Kuu since she has been sucking it up lately.

      Ahhh really? I was looking at SCANDAL and they seem pretty interesting. I think maybe they do pop-rock or something which I like but idk.

      I don’t really want to get into K-Pop though…

  19. just added you =)

  20. lol, I like the ‘yes, your album sucked that much’ header up above, that made my day ;] ^

  21. Hey! Thanks for adding me! ❤ I'll add you too!~

    lovely header btw

    • Thanks! Hopefully we can be good blog buddies! XD

  22. Hi hi!

    I just wanted to let you know that I’ve added your site to my Blogroll n.n

  23. Very interesting posts you have! Been reading your reviews for awhile now =]

    Btw, was just wondering do you have an email or something? I wanted to contact you about something but don’t know how…

    • Thanks for reading my very few reviews and random nonsense!

      By the way, my e-mail is: ninjaayu22@aol.com

      … such an Ayu fan….

  24. So… I realize I read your blog and we are not yet affiliated. This needs to change I think.

    Added you to blog roll =]
