Remon No Toge by Kuroki Nagisa [Album Review] | J-Music Exchange/Rate

Hello, it’s been a while! You know, given that I’ve been stuck at home for the past three months, you’d think I’d have the motivation and will to write more posts with all this free time… yeah. I apologize 😛 Today’s write-up is actually another installment of a recently-revived segment on the blog, J-Music Exchange/Rate! ...

ex Negoto by NEGOTO [Album Review] | J-Music Exchange/Rate

I guess this quarantine has helped me revive some old blog segments lol Waaaaaay back in 2018, fellow blogger/Japanese music fan Leap250 and I started a collaboration where we both gave each other an album from our respective libraries to listen to and review in a blog post. Cleverly named “J-Music Exchange/Rate” by Leap, it ...

My Complicated Thoughts about Tamayomi

Well, the Spring anime season is kind of in shambles right now and for me personally, it’s a bit hard to discuss about. There are some shows that I am very much enjoying such as the second season of Jashin-chan Dropkick and Yesterday to Utatte. But with a lot of anime being postponed and/or my ...

Love Live’s Perfect Dream Project: An Informative Update

A long long time ago, I wrote a post titled Why Love Live Fans Really Shouldn’t Neglect the New Project, where I discussed a little bit about the most recent school idol group in the franchise and my reasons on why μ’s/Aqours admirers should give them a chance. That was in 2018. It’s been about ...

Creating Apple Music ‘Essentials’ Playlists for Some J-Artists

As I’ve mentioned in the past, my preferred music streaming platform is Apple Music. Because I own multiple Apple products (iPhone, Macbook, etc.), their self-made service makes it very convenient to download music and listen to stuff on each of my devices. No hate to Spotify or any other streaming platform, they’re great in their ...

This post isn’t going to be anime or music-related but because I have this space where I can write and express my feelings, I thought the blog would be a good place to do this particular post in. Normal write-ups will be back soon. Alongside my love for anime, seiyuu, idols, music and general otaku ...

i☆Ris 5th Live Tour 2019 ~FEVER~ (Review/Thoughts)

If you’ve been following the blog for a while now, I’ve started to dabble in live concerts (more specifically Japanese-based ones) since they’ve become more available to the foreign public. Whether that be actually going to a theater near me and enjoying it with fans alike or simply just watching one at home (…sometimes in ...

Infrequent J-Music Roundup #16 – iri, ohashiTrio, Itou Miku (and more!)

Hello and welcome to another J-music roundup! In case you don’t know what this is, this segment is essentially just me showcasing some cool Japanese music that I’ve listened to recently and my attempt to talk about them. It’s a very casual and chill thing I do on the blog. During my 1-2 month break, ...

Retiring the “Slice of Alfredo” Name…

Hello, it’s been a while. After a long period of time of being busy and not having much motivation to write, I think now is a good opportunity for me to (slowly) get back into the gist of things. I still love writing about random stuff and interacting with all you lovely people, and I ...
