Here’s a really cute song by Sakurakko Club which Mochida Maki was a member of, whom I posted about yesterday. The always funny and outrageous “Crayon Shinchan” anime t.v. series features a number of opening and closing themes…this being my absolute favorite closing theme which the show used awhile back. “Crayon Shinchan” can sort of be described as the “Dennis the Menace” of Japanese animation only a bit more on the wild side! We used to get this show regularly here in Hawaii on a local station awhile ago but sadly they’ve stopped broadcasting this really amusing series and I wish they’d bring it back!
This song embodies everything that is fun about anime theme songs as the lyrics are playful and the music’s really upbeat. The choruses in particular are my favorite parts as they’re really wonderfully written with a great hook and I can still picture the ending animation which accompanies it on the show. ^-^ I found this song on a TV anime compilation CD…”Hits TV Animation 1″ and I’ve uploaded it directly to VOX…still having that browser freezing up issue which is really strange when I upload directly here and if anyone’s interested in the mp3 just ask and I’ll send you a link…it’s really really cute and extremely catchy! ^-^

And here’s just a few more photos that were originally going to be in yesterday’s Mochida Maki post but couldn’t be added due to Photobucket’s site maintenance and I’ve decided to just add them here instead as she has a Sakurakko Club connection too.
And this photo is from the same album’s first press “Pandora…” photo booklet.
Mochida Maki was also featured on the cover of the November 1995 issue of UTB which included a poster pin up as well as a 6 page article on her.
