Current Obsession: Love Live!

Have you ever wanted to manage an idol group or are interested in idols? Are you a big fan of groups like Morning Musume, BABYMETAL or AKB48? Then this post is for you! Let’s talk about one of the most addicting and arguably cutest franchise around. I’m talking Love Live! School Idol Project. I got into the anime and game earlier this year, however, I’ve listened to the music since mid 2014. Since I spend a significant amount of time playing the game, I thought why not sharing this amazing franchise with my readers?

Through this post, I hope to introduce everyone to the wonderful world of Love Live! School Idol Festival. Maybe after this post, you’ll become interested in the franchise like I did and we can be Love Live! buddies.

Hey guys, I was kind of stuck on what to write about last week. So this week I wanted to start off with a semi-pop culture post. As such, I decided to focus on the CYBERJAPAN DANCERS. Because I know a lot of girls who are interested in gyaru seem to really like them. But there’s like little to no information about them in english.

Be One With The Forest: Mori Girl

The Mori Girl is a girl who looks like she lives in the forest. A very whimsical style. I was thinking, it was a while since I last wrote about a Japanese fashion subculture. As some of you know, the last post I made, was last year with B-girl. This time I wanted to go the opposite route to a more delicate style. And I’m not talking lolita, haha. I’m talking Mori Girl or forest girl.
