Another week rolls around.. and I’ve got more music to share! This week, I am going with Anime movie songs because they seem to be popping up and creeping into good memories this week!
Yesterday, me and my neighbours were invited to perform at our local community center as part of a matsuri! We were asked to sing, and we performed a short dance where we made a mash-up of popular dances from the West with current dance trends in Japan. That was really good fun and a big success. So today, I’ll share the two Japanese songs that were performed as part of our set!
Oops. I was supposed to post this on Monday, but lots of things caught up with me (like it being a day off so we watched a stage-play and generally goro’d about)
Here are my 2 songs for the week!
In my quest to improve my Japanese listening ability, I previously wrote that I was only going to listen to Japanese music on my iPod from then on to see if it would help me learn to pick up more.
I can honestly actually say that coupled with the other things I have been doing (grammar study, intensive vocab and kanji input and generally conversing as much as I can!) – my listening has improved ten-fold! I have recently found that while listening to new music, I can pick up on what they are saying more clearly while listening to familiar songs I can start to understand meanings. So, hurrah for music!
So I’m going to share some of my favourite music, old and new, every Monday. Besides getting me back on to the blog-train, it’ll also push me to keep on seeking out new music which is always good fun.

(Hey everyone, long time no see!
Are you well? Recently I have been really, really busy but happy every day! This month I took the JLPT N4. This time, I understood most of it so maybe I will pass. So up until this post I have been studying and working hard every day. From now I have more free time! I want to write some interesting posts again.
Oh! Do you use Twitter? Please follow me! I’m rebelriotori.
Righty, I’m going to write a new post! See you!)
