~Dear visitors♥ and Friends♥, please read~ ^ ^。

Shortly after posting last night I had a sudden worry and couldn't get to sleep (;_;)….just wondering if I had written enough in the intended context and worrying that maybe there now may be a dislike for me with my new~found fandom which would overwhelm me with sadness (´⌒`。)。 I recently mentioned a shift in my idol experience and the following is an day later~edit~in which is now taken from the previous post =).

My H!P love is no way wavering o(*´∀`)o゛♥♥♥ as I'm by no means leaving my fandom♥…it's just a shift at the very peak of my interest and I actually have a lot more H!P releases~* on pre~order at the moment than AKB =). I have adored H!P from their very debut single "Morning Coffee" in real time when I purchased their single~* in February of 1998 when there wasn't a "H!P" just yet and there was only Momusu where the most dynamic of members and awesome songwriting attracted me so much….my love of H!P can never go away it's just too much a part of me (*´∀`)。

As far as any H!P vs. anyone it just doesn't exist for me as I don't see how feeling like you're aren't able to embrace any new found love because of any current one should affect oneself…(of course with marriage and my one and only special love it's definitely another case as it's my one~and~only for me always (人∀`*)♥♥♥!) I've actually touched upon these sentiments and how I feel anyone should be able to listen to anything because variety is the spice~* of life and what makes one happy one should enjoy without feeling any inner clash within or otherwise ^ ^。 If one loves Harry Potter surely they can also love Narnia…what touches and moves you which is what music and entertainment is is most personal~* and I just don't see the need for any vs. sentiments about fandoms.

In the case of the members of a group I read often times about fans disliking members of another group because they're seemingly overshadowing or taking away from another group or artist and what saddens me is that these girls/guys aren't responsible in any way for this….I mean each individual member is going to their job (ie: idol♥) and trying their very best to be the best that they can. So to dislike of them for this reason seems unfair as if you were to put yourself into any one of their shoes I think you'd certainly be hurt reading about or hearing how fans are disliking you based on your group being popular and it having nothing to do with your character, values or upbringing. If an idol commits a crime I can totally understand fans turning on them or losing interest and questioning their morals but these girls/guys are simply living a dream~* of theirs to be idols and hopefully achieve success. I think any fan having the chance to be in their shoes would love to do the same and not feel any backlash or dislike for simply being ourselves and striving for success each and every day~.

I hope all visitors♥ can find it in their hearts to be happy for my joy of discovering a "new" group in AKB which makes me smile while their music moves me and while I'm still learning each of their member's individual personalities 😛 and matching faces to names, it's just another facet of my fandom♥ in J~Pop and I really hope that no animosity or dislike of me arises as since I've been in my mid teens I've loved, listened to and supported by purchasing many different groups and artists' releases~* and will continue to far into the future…..anywhere which my heart and ears leads me to. And for all fellow fans of J~Pop or any other genre of music who may be reading, I hope you can also listen without prejudice and like or love whatever attracts or moves you without any pretenses or restraints from within or otherwise ^ ^。

Please always listen♪ without prejudice o(*´∀`)o゛

    Ah, don't worry, nobody could ever dislike you for that. You're the most optimist fan I've ever found. In fact, I can't remember you ever saying something bad about a release. I do remember you reviewed even Haromoni@ up to when it started those MouTube videos, and if that doesn't show commitment, and if that didn't make you give up H!P, well, I must conclude nothing ever will ^_^ Truth is, back then I was pretty much watching those only to read the posts and comment, seeing how you would take those and still find something to write about and screencap was always interesting.It is kind of a dead topic though. In general, most people are ignorant, and in particular, most fans in any given fandom are ignorant (have I said I'm more of a pessimist?), so yeah, there will be haters. But they don't have a tenth of your history with H!P, and you'll probably surpass them on AKB in a year or two.

    I for one am glad you talk about other artists on your blog. I am a huge HP fan and my love for the girls in HP and the music writers who make their music is second to none, but i also like other artists and im glad you are the same way it allows me to add a little more variety to my music collection besides HP music. I for one support you and your other interests in other artists and I can never fault you for that either. I hope you keep on turning me on to new artists in the future and i hope people will see the value in your blog as a source and place to not only find new artists to listen to but to also introduce people to the artist they listen to. Please keep up the good work and i thank you deeply for working so hard to make your blog a fun place to visit for all lovers of J-Music and music in general thank you ♥♥♥ (^_^)V ♥♥♥

    I'm sorry if my comment on your last entry sounded harsh or mean. I don't mean to put down the AKB girls at all!! I mean, I can't even count the number of times I've listened to River, or how many times I've posted Namida Surprise on my friends' facebook walls whenever their birthday comes along. I guess the response I posted to the last entry of yours was too emotionally-charged and uncalled for. I apologize if my words upset you or prompted you to clarify yourself where it wasn't required; I didn't mean to start any arguments! I'm sorry.

    ah, you're so sweet for getting worried about those kind of so very little things. And THANKS, you gave me just a good boost. For a long time I've been thinking about writing a blog post for my kakko-ii blog about my musical roots. Could be something like "Music is life – Life is music". Could be another surprise for you all. Hope I get it done before next month.
    By the way: I guess I'm happy because on your AKB girls ranking list there is my most favorite AKB girl at shared 3rd position. Let me just say that Tomomi is not an ordinary idol girl.

    Yeah so apparently there are some people who feel AKB fans shouldn't be H!P fans and vice-versa. Not saying your apologetic commenter up there is one, but just a little forewarning I guess for whatever else may be to come comments-wise in your future posts about AKB. I personally think this is silly, since while they are so similar they're still so different and also because, well, there should be room for everybody to shine!
    Have fun getting to know AKB; you're already passing me up in your growing knowledge, so I'll be coming back more often to learn what you've learned!

  8. W~ah! HarimaKenji you remember going so far back….those were really fun days to write reviews of a weekly program and I sometimes get teased for being so positive seemingly no matter what it is (*≧▽≦)♪ Your kind words mean so much to me truly and I want to say thank you~* so much…it's just so exciting to be discovering a group so amazing and even though I'm getting into them so late I hope to do my very best in embracing this new fandom♥ ^ ^。

  9. O~h Rebear o(*´∀`)o゛。。。please please don't apologize or feel badly any tiny bit at all. Those thoughts were lingering way before I received your comment and I don't feel you said anything mean or wrong at all. Everyone has their right to voice and keep the thoughts and opinions surely and nothing you wrote I know were not to hurt my feelings…I sincerely love when you read and leave comments as I think you're a very insightful and sincere person~*. I was worried rather that fellow fans of H!P may think that I've moved on which is so not the case at all, in fact that could never happen as they're way too much a part of me and my endearment is forever♥. You feeling even an ounce of bad would make me feel so awful so please don't don't think any of that ever and you're so sweet~* to write to me….thank you~* for being such a wonderful friend always o(*´∀`)o゛♥。

  10. Hi J~pyon~ I'm always so happy to have conversations with you and I always makes my day to read what thoughts you have to share~* ^ ^。I feel so unworthy of such words…..but I will continue to share as much music love as I can. And what's so fun is that they're so so many more artists which I haven't even gotten close to reaching just yet and just browsing the CD shelves I just hope I have time to get to much more in time~. There are a lot of J~Pop artists from yesteryear in which I'd love to share and these I tend to keep a bit spread out so that this site doesn't begin to appear to be too much retro XD not that there's anything wrong with that of course…(^q^)!

  18. A~h! chocobliss I'm such a newbie with AKB and I imagine I should be learning from you ne~ ^ ^!。。I was anticipating a bit and most worried that I may be stepping on a mine with this……just so many arguments I've seen in forums which sadden me as like you say there's surely enough room for all idols♥ to shine~*. I think if something makes you happy and entertains or makes you love♥ then more the merrier as things can be much more fun this way~. I haven't had quite this feeling~* of excitement I don't know how to explain it but AKB's music reminds me so much of why I at first came to love J~Pop♥. Thank you~* so much for your encouragement and I hope our AKB fandoms can grow together ne~ o(*´∀`)o゛
