~Favorite Season of



Winter =)!!!!!

And I bet right about now you’re wondering to yourself what in the world does this image above here have to do with winter?? Well I have no idea what this has to do with Winter either, but when I Googled ‘winter images’ back in 2009 I pinky-promise this image back then came up~ (・o・) Sadly this bizarre phenomenon of image searches doesn’t occur anymore as I tried it just now =(.

And who knew that figures could be so sukebe? (^-^*)

He’s creepy!! (*>ω<) and yet mysterious….

~Favorite Newly

Discovered  Television

show of 2015~

Fresh Off The Boat DVD The Complete First Season

There was a time back in elementary and then into intermediate and then into high school when I was initially regarded as being “fresh off the boat” albeit it was mostly to do with my name as it wasn’t of the ‘norm’ to most other kids back then and when our teachers would inevitably do roll call when it came to me there was often times a giggle or two and then interested looks and I vividly remember one classmate nonchalantly asking “why did your parents name you that?….” LOL =). But the second I spoke aloud all of that went out the window as I was no longer “fresh” =)! I just then just had an “odd” name is all =D.

So I just LOOOOOOOOOVE this show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~! The first season is a bit brief but oh so adorably written and FUNNY! I like how it’s all narrated in hindsight just as The Wonder Years was! Constance Wu is a gem~*! as is the entire talented cast. This one’s a keeper!

AKB48 best of 2015

~AKB48 “Bokutachi wa tatakawanai” (mv)~

Hmm….? So the synopsis here goes something like: A long time ago in a galaxy far far away AKB’s Secret Angelic~Fashion Runway show goes under a shocking attack by the dark dark forces of ATOW whom wield fierce weaponry including explosive projectiles and deadly light sabers alike =O! (BTW place wings on the Girls48 and it instantly transforms any party into a heavenly and yet sexy eye- O-O -candy bliss filled time…(^q^)!) Now in the deadly aftermath we witness a ransacked Tatooine where Paruru Skywalker suddenly awakens to the voice of her master and best girlfriend Mayu Wan Kenobi in her mind whom induces in Paruru a lemon-peel scowl and rage like never seen before (・д・`*)!!!

Mano Erina ESCALATION shashinshuu (39)

Manoeri best of 2015

And while this isn’t Manoeri’s~♡ first photographic-rodeo shot here in the Hawaiian islands, did you notice something’s a bit different about her here? No it isn’t that she’s more adora~cute than ever here as Manoeri’s already been to that idol~ly~mountain-summit many a times in both her H!P days as well as her post-H!P career. It’s the Mano♡Heat index as for the first time Manoeri’s truly unleashing her Mano♡Sensuality upon us as in sensual-themes galore (・д・`*)!!

~Favorite J-

movie release of 2015~

Rurouni Kenshin....

Rurouni KenshinRurouni Kenshin Kyoto InfernoRurouni Kenshin The Legend Ends

Rurouni Kenshin trilogy!!!!

Sure this trilogy was released over a three year period preceding 2015, however the complete and gorgeous Blu-ray didn’t hit store shelves until 2015 and so with that I’m saying it qualifies as a best of 2015 =).

And Satou Takeru♥!~! is perfectly cast as the wandering swordsman legend “Himura Kenshin” whose bloody past as an assassin now hides a dark secret, one which has rebirthed himself as a wanderer whom swears to never kill again and while most darkened pasts likely come back to haunt oneself, this inevitable reality is met with deathly circumstances which progress and twist throughout the three movies. The story of “Rurouni Kenshin” takes place during the Meiji period of Japan, a time of the country’s industrial revolution where Japan’s economic, military and social relations saw major movements and changes as the country transcended from an isolated feudal society into its modern state. Much of the films underlying storylines are reflected in this very sense as the growing Western influences are set to make a stronghold all the while the ways of the samurai are ever nearing its extinction.

~Favorite Non-J Movie

release of


Star Wars The Force Awakens movie artwork

Predictable I’m sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But oh so correct!!!!!!!!!!

And that’s all I’m allowed to say as this is a Star Wars spoiler-free zone =).


~Cutest & possibly


figure of 2015~ =P

Asuna mizugi ver. figure

“Someone” naughty opened up her Christmas present a wee bit early this year =P ….and discovered an Asuna figure hidden under all of that wrapping paper!~!

And had it not been for the SAO extra I would be so confused as to why oh why is Asuna here dressed in nothing but a bikini =O. And yet her pose is highly questionable putting it rather lightly …I mean Asuna doggie* style really?? Well psssst I’ll let you in on a little secret! You see all girls assume this position whenever @ a beach dressed in something so skimpy and revealing …..NOT!!!!!!! …(^q^)!

Nana is suspicious....

Asuna mizugi version figure

In any case it’s absolutely Asuna~cute don’t you think!!

Well, after you get past all of your dirty thoughts that is. Wait, I’m the only one typing here ….may be just my dirty* thoughts after all ….huh =).


“Asuna” 1/7 scale PVC figure by Griffon Enterprises: Blue skies and beach, each sold separately. Dirty* thoughts are free =P.





~Favorite J-

Single release of 2015

(solo artist)~

So it’s a tie! Or rather I cheated here and included two singles just because =P!~!

Ohara Sakurako Hitomi single

~Ohara Sakurako “Hitomi” (mv)~

Sakurako~chan~♡ herself co-wrote the lyrics alongside producer/music composer Kameda Seiji whom was also the mastermind for her debut single and while the original version of “Hitomi” is a perfect meeting between pop/rock and folk you so have to also check out the coupling with version of this song as it’s an all acoustic piano performance!!~! When heard in this additional light you really feel the song’s lullaby aura which flows so soothingly from each lovely verse to its immaculate chorus and how the bridge section soars…with the acoustic version you can even further appreciate Sakurako~chan’s~♡ vocal control as she sings with such a textured tone, just perfect~*.

Watanabe Mayu best of 2015

Mayuyu best of 2015...

~Watanabe Mayu “Deai no tsuzuki” (mv)~

And while Mayuyu’s solo works of the past have all been most awesome each in their own right (many of a loving Mayuyu musical posts can be found herein with a simple search =) ) “Deai no tsuzuki” really marks a much more mainstream Mayuyu both musically and vocally I think you’d agree? Now getting back to this music video here, while there is a theme of much running here with “gifts?” both which will be further documented during the upcoming “making” of clip you’ll liken to notice a bit of audience misguiding followed by an abrupt twist at music video’s end…. no we’re not talkin’ “Mulholland Drive” level of confuse the crap out of you (・c_・;)?but happily some a bit of adora~mischief instead ^^.

~Favorite J-single release

of 2015 (group)~

C-ute's best of 2015!!

~C-ute “Tsugi no Kado wo Magare” (mv)~

And if Airiin’s constant allure/camera flirting throughout this mv doesn’t mesmerize… then I cannot help you =).

~Favorite J-album of


Mr.Children best of 2015

Mr.Children REFLECTION Naked LE box set

~Mr.Children “Melody” (mp3)~

Nope there was never any question!!!!!

And with a single listen I was absolutely in love~♥! To be sure “Melody” hails from a wintery theme of Christmastime with a full-bodied ensemble of brass, strings, piano & band with a loveliest of melodies upon which Sakurai-san projects with his trademark emotional drive as his vocals have always had a profound conviction within them. And as this joining of melody and lyrical meaning engulfs you building up to its ultimately euphoric chorus, I have to imagine that one’s heart cannot resist but to flutter with happiness and passion as music just doesn’t get any better than this ………(゜∀゜)………~♡!!!

OH and the remainder of this album ABSOLUTELY without question ROCKS! TOO!~!~!~! My perfect album of 2015!!!!

A no-brainer says my forbidden desires which we won’t speak of here (*´艸`)。。。also this category is not to be confused with “favorite band of 2015” as that definitely still goes to Mr.Children!

And I won’t bother to link any specific post as there’s an abundance of ARASHI♥ posts all over this site!~! ^^

    The L figure picture was funny. I need to see Agents of Shield and I seen the new Star Wars movie. The movie was great.

  2. ASUUUUNA! I’m half Asian (not that it matters) and I watched Fresh off the Boat with my mom because she wanted to. We laughed a lot :3 The Star Wars movie on another note was pretty awesome! I’m not even a huge Star Wars buff like most and I enjoyed it a ton.

    • Ah! that’s cool….you’re like hapa =). For awhile there while standing in line I totally though I’d end up sitting next to either Obi-Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca or a Stormtrooper LOL…fans go all out during the early showings and they make it a show onto themselves ^^. Yay! another fan of Fresh Off The Boat!! It is such a cute and funny show! Love it!

    If you have seen the movie “Being John Malkovich” the actor plays himself.

    There is a running joke where people tell him that they LOVE his movies. When he asks which one, they stall for a moment because they cannot name one. They say “the one where you played the jewel thief”.

    He always replies but I NEVER PLAYED a jewel thief.

    Now he can add “You must be thinking of Mayu Watanabe!”

    (long way to go for a joke – but Merry Christmas)

    PS: Loving the song Ohara Sakurako “Hitomi”. BTW

    • Hahah that is hilarious that not one of his movie lovers can name a single movie of his xD! I’d not seen this movie before, it does sound quite interesting…a comedy I have to imagine?

      Love LOVE that song and music video!! Mayuyu’s so great in it and YES she’s surprisingly a jewel thief at video’s end =P.

      Ohhhhhhh I’m so happy that you like Ohara Sakurako’s “Hitomi” single!!!!!!!!!! It’s such a lovely and very catchy ballad! And her voice is just perfect!~~!

    bet you never had Fukumura Mizuki and Juice=Juice’s Uemura Akari PB(btw,i think it’s sold out in some online shops and it took me weeks of searching) yet which is hard to judge if compared to ManoEri’s.
