so i was thinking of starting this anyway, and then linzey suggested it too so i was like hey, why not.. i know we aren't the only two on the board who would get something out of this thread *waits for ceryna to come running*
basically, it's just a place for us enthusiasts of anything japanese -- anime/manga, dorama, ongaku (music), nihongo (japanese language), etc... whee! (if this is in the wrong place, then move it -- this was the best place i could think of)
so, i'm really big on a lot of japanese bands. my favorite being kuroyume, followed by sads (same vocalist, kiyoharu, who i adore -- he's also put out some solo stuff which is also amazing.. from the one song i've heard
). also, in no particular order, dir en grey, plastic tree, l'arc~en~ciel (ugh, i've got to admit it...), aliene ma'riage, noir fleurir, missalina rei, and loads more (including some cheesy pop groups/singers that have made special places in my heart
). i like a lot of anime/manga -- angel sanctuary, juvenile orion, escaflowne, fushigi yuugi, bishoujo senshi sailormoon, gravitation, to name a few (a few?!).
and, as might follow naturally, i'm studying the language as well -- class starts up in a couple weeks!
it'll be nice to be in a class setting instead of just learning it on my own.
so.. anyone else? just say what you want, even if it's just 'mayuko no baka'
