IT'S INTRODUCTION TIME!
This journal contains random fangirl thoughts, fandom updates, pic spams, profiles, and some real life stuff. I rarely post download links here and I don't write fanfics. Pic spams and personal stuff are friend-locked after a day or so. Please remember that this is both my PERSONAL and FANDOM JOURNAL. So, from time to time, I tend to rant about school and random stuff about real life.

Read under the CUT to know more about me and my fandom! :D Collapse )



Drop a comment/ message and LET'S BE FRIENDS! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!!

Hello!

Writing keeps me sane. I've been keeping a handwritten journal to vent out about a lot of things especially self issues. I'm still stressing with my work, I always thinks I'm useless, or a failure. I really wonder why I'm least motivated to do things, but I'm crazily worried I can't get anything done. Whenever I write, my anxiety somewhat reduces. Woah.

[] I'm kind of updated with the fandom, thanks to Twitter, but right now I'm not I'm really into watching movies, like every weekend, I make sure I watch something, and if I have spare time during weekdays. My recent watch includes: Miseinen Dakedo Kodomo Janai, Destiny: The Tale of Kamakura, The Princess and the Matchmaker, Second Summer Never See You Again. Also, I'm currently watching a C-drama called Love O2O. I'm at Episode 6, I'm slow with dramas. If you're interested, you can check out my MDL account.

[] I've been captivated by Shigeoka Daiki's smile. I really want to watch his Netflix drama with Kamichan, but sadly, I don't have an account. I'm not sure about having an account since I don't watch much stuff there. Maybe sometime, I can try the free trial. Ever since I've seen him act in Oboreru Knife, I really want too see Daiki take on romance second lead roles. I haven't really followed Johnny's West that close, but only seeing clips and tweet about him makes me like his personality so much. Oh yes, I've known him since 7WEST, I was so into Kotaki. lol. Shige's smiles makes my heart flutter.

[] I just realized how Spotify can be helpful. Recently, I opened my spotify (I created one to listen to a Murakami Haruki playlist) to follow some Japanese artists and wow, I never thought I could find the songs I have been looking for. I'm still learning how to use it like creating playlists and such.

[] Books! I'm still reading novels. I've finished almost all of my Murakami books. Currently, I've been searching for classics to read. I'm halfway through Love in the Time of Cholera. On my reading list are Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen) and Lord of the Flies (William Golding)

Last December, I talked about getting back into the fandom. I got the chance because of the holiday vacation, but now that it's back to work again, I wonder if I can still keep up with lots of things happening in the fandom everyday. Still, I plan on staying, I may not be posting a lot, but I will try and stay a fangirl. I'm very good at time management when I was in college, I might as well use it now. I'm thinking of focusing on work, well, because I have to and I don't want to be a failure, but all work and no play will make me dumb and stressed. Proper time management is the key. lol.

Stay strong mga kapatid! Hahaha. Gawin silang inspiration, hindi distraction. :) Good luck sa akin sa trabaho ko. Hahahuhu. I need motivation!

Oh, I'm on twitter  @krmejima

I'm doing this to help update myself with the recent stuff in EBiDAN, but this could probably help you too if you are interested in them. A lot of things are going on with their groups/units. I love how Stardust handle their artists and have a one big unit focused on their talents involved in performing (singing, dancing, acting), stage performances, and live events.


Ebidan is a group of young male actors and talents who belong to Stardust Promotion. It is composed of several units including DISH//, Choutokkyuu, and PrizmaX [Can I call them the big 3?]. Recently, many groups have been formed from much younger talents.


EBiDAN 39 & KiDS is a collective term for junior high school students and up (Ebidan 39) and elementary school student (Ebidan Kids). They have several bases in Tokyo, Osaka, Sendai, Ngoya, Fukuoka, and Okinawa. [Probably, we can compare this to juniors in Johnny’s and Associates in training]. Derived units are M!LK, Sakurashimeji, MAGIC BOYZ, SUPER DRAGON, Stamen KiDS, AMEZARI, ZeBRA STAR. Before going on a hiatus, I follow the first 2 groups mentioned, and I am quite informed about the next 2. Not sure if I can post profiles, but I’ll try my best. Two members of M!LK are active in acting right now, so I bet they are getting more attention now.


EBiDAN THE STREET started in July 2015. Their activities include street live. There are few units under this, namely Satori Shonen Association, EDAMAME BEANS, and EBiSSH. Right now, EBiSSH is becoming more popular as a group, I’ve seen their MVs on their YT channel. [Choutokkyuu’s Takuya has a younger brother in this group].


After looking at Wikipedia (lol), they have many past units including CustomiZ and also have many past members.  

I just checked their official website (ebidan.jp). Apparently, they have this classifications (High, Next Hig, New Wave, and Kids). I think they are doing well with building up their units, newer groups have their own sites you can look into if you are interested [They are updated and neat].  DISH// definitely have made their name. Choutokkyuu and PrizmaX are getting there, I believe they are already established, I just want to see more people talking about them and listening to their music. I will look more into the newer groups, sometimes, I find them so awkward.

I think if you are looking for groups where you want to see their growth  and improvement or maybe get aways from Johnny's for a while, Ebidan has it. lol.

Hello!


Recently, I discovered a band called SHE’S. I was wandering in Youtube when their latest song, WHITE, popped up in my feed. I often do this in YT, searching for Japanese pop/alternative/punk rock bands in the recommendation corner. I just click and if I like the sound of it, I share it on my G+ for future reference. I actually have a lot of bands to check out, but apparently, I’m a lazy person, so I seldom get back to the bands I shared on G+. SHE’s kept on appearing on my feed and recently they released their 2nd album “Wandering”, I listened to the album preview, and decided that I download their album. I’m lucky enough to find it and I did not regret because I love their songs. 

I am sharing the lyrics of one of my favorite songs in the album, entitled Blinking Lights. This song got a very nice feel to it. 


Boku e no aizu no youni
Sairen ga narihibii te iru
Kangaeru no wa yame te shiranai furi o tsuzuketa  

Kizuka zu ni kizutsuke te
Wagamama ni wasure taku te
Nakami no nai tate to hokoo furikazashi te ita 

Kitto dare mo
Okubyō kaze ni fukare te wa
Kodoku ni nai te iru 

Soredemo deae ta yorokobi o utau
Boku wa nan do mo nan do demo
Kanashimi dai ta bun dake
Tsugini fuminarasu ippo wa
Okiku natte iru 

Tsugou ga warui koto ni
Me o fuse te i ta toshite mo
Tobira o nokku suru oto wa fue te iku kara
Sabakareru koto no nai
Tsumi o se ni shi ta mama
Kakushou nai gooru e ashi o susume te iru  

Tsugunau koto ga deki naku te mo 

Soredemo shiawase na asu o negau
Boku wa nan do mo nan do demo
Kanashimi nagei ta jikan no bun dake
Mukuwareru nante koto wa nai n da 

Sugata kae nagara
Uke ta kotoba no ya
Kowai nara douzo sokode
Todokoutte oke ba ii 

Soredemo deae ta yorokobi o utau
Bokura wa shiawase na asu o negau 

Anata ni deae ta yorokobi o utau
Boku ni mou tamerai wa nai
Kanashimi dai ta bun dake
Tsugini fuminarasu ippo wa
Okiku natte iru
Tsuyoku natte iru 


I will definitely dig more for their older songs and I’ll look forward to their future releases. I might as well share a list bands I listen to on my later posts.

Hello.

Recently, Sexy Zone had a cameo appearance on a Netflix drama "Fuller House". I'm very clueless about Netflix series, I haven't watched one actually. Though I plan on watching Furukawa Yuki's "Erased" and the one starring Johnny's WEST "Blazing Transfer Students". Okay, so at the 10th episode, Sexy Zone appeared and Marius Yo got a little role, a random Japanese idol roaming around the streets of Tokyo right before their concert. He got to use his English skills and his foreign looks. And we can't deny, that Marius is so kakkoi (puberty did so well). He gave out front row tickets to their concert. And the girl was even invited to the stage and gets to dance with them. And wow, if only it could happen in real life, it will be a fangirl's wish come true. Okay, Marius is so cute, I think it is nice to see him in a series.

Apparently, many were intrigue and questions were asked like "Is Sexy Zone even a real idol group?" I know their group name is a little bit misleading, I mean, they are so cute rather than sexy. Many doubted the name of there group, and thought it was all made up. But yes, SZ is a real group and 5 years and counting. Is this Sexy Zone's time to rise on the international scene? Probably, depends on the audience of the show. It will make them aware of the existence of the group.

Is Johnny's trying to reach out to the international scene? Through netflix? I still don't know what to think about this. But wow? Johnny san actually thought and agreed to all of these? If this will continue, maybe, just maybe, this will be good for J&A, especially for the international fans. Who knows? Hmm, I'm waiting to see what will happen. And will Marius keep appearing on the series?



--
Another news for today, V6's Okada Junichi and Miyazaki Aoi will be getting married.

Last night was Music Station Super Live 2017 and a lot of Johnny's performed. I think I'm really getting back into the fandom.

Sexy Zone will be releasing their 6th album with the title "XYZ=repainting" on February 14, 2018. It will mark their finish line for their 5th year anniversary in the industry. What a weird title, right? On their site, it was stated that they will have a new start and a "new form" for the group. Hmm, I'm totally clueless.

Well, anyway, here are the album covers and tracklist.
