^ My poor attempt at Japanese xD
Meh it has been a while, I've been visiting various members of my family for the past few weeks. My 4 year old cousin is so cute, I barely see him because he lives in Wales and I live in England. But I live near the border so it's ok xD.
I can't believe it's almost 2009, 2008 went so fast T_T
Christmas was cool. My family got a wii so I've been addicted to that. I got a new phone, My Japanese Coach (to help me with Hiragana and Kanji xD) and money so I can buy KAT-TUN's new DVD off YesAsia!
I'm going shopping to Manchester on Saturday hopefully. I've only been twice to visit my half-sister at Uni but it's where I want to go to Uni too since they have a good business and economics course there. I've been inspired by too much "The Apprentice".
Since it's almost new year, I feel like making 2008 lists. So here's number one! xDBEST ARTISTS OF 2008
|Rank||Male Artist||Reason||Female Artist||Reason|
|1||KAT-TUN||DuES was epic. And Cartoon KAT-TUN is entertaining as always. Plus it's KAT-TUN <33|
|Buono!||Great releases this year and their FC live was great to watch!|
|2||Big Bang||Number 1 was a great album and my friend likes Haru Haru so it must be good xD||Berryz Koubou||Less good songs this year but they proved themselves with winning awards and Yorosen.|
|3||Arashi||truth was awesome and the members roles in dramas this year really pushed them up this list.||Wonder Girls||So Hot refused to leave my head for months and Yoo Bin is just too cool for words. Looking forward to their releases next year!|
|4||NEWS||2008 was a good year for my NEWS fandom. I liked their singles this year a lot and color was a great album. More Yamapi engrish in 2009 please :3||Morning Musume||Resonant Blue was a great comeback song after Mikan. Cinderella the Musical was great. Pepper Keibu had me doing the dance for weeks and now Ai is in a primetime drama. 2009 will be great for Momusu.|
|5||Tohoshinki||Ah so many great songs by them this year. I loved MIROTIC and Wrong Number and I'm so glad they made it onto Kouhaku. Good luck for 2009 DBSK!||Namie Amuro||BEST FICTION was epic and reignited my Namie fandom. I loved DO ME MORE and 60s70s80s was a great single that got the recognition it deserved. Especially WHAT A FEELING. The Queen of Hip-Pop is back.|
|6||Kanjani8||I must admit I never liked them until this year but they've grown on me so much. Hopefully they'll get more releases next year!||MiChi||She reminds me of Leona Lewis which is a good thing and PROMiSE was a strong single. She'll be one I'm looking out for next year.|
|7||EXILE||Their cover of LAST CHRISTMAS was great as were all their songs this year and Japan seems to agree with me. Hope they keep doing well!||Kumi Koda||TABOO was a great song and I loved watching her most recent tour. Hopefully she'll keep growing strong next year.|
|8||UVERWORLD||takuya has such a nice voice! And he can beatbox like Maru :D|
I loved their songs this year and next year should be good too.
|GIRL NEXT DOOR||I know there's guys in this group but the main member is female. I was impressed by their debut and Jounetsu no Daishou was a great song with a great PV.|
|9||AAA||I loved ZERO especially the PV but I've yet to watch their tour this year. I started following them less after Mirage but if 2009 produces a great song for them then I'll be happy :D||Aya Matsuura||Although I'm not really a fan of her ballads I loved Kizuna and Egao. I hope she has a great comeback next year with an upbeat song.|
|10||flumpool||New artist but one I'm definitely going to be following. Their vocalist is so cute and I love his voice. Plus the cover of Unreal is so funny.||AKB48||I lost interest in AKB after Romance, Irane and the fact that they decided to graduated a whole lot of my favorite members. If it wasn't for Haruna, Atsuko, SaeYaka and Natsumi Hirajima I'm not sure I'd be a fan anymore. Mendol was strange but made me like Minami x 2.|
Wow so many new artists xD I never realised before I reread it.
