Any Hey! Hey! Hey! Music Champ fans in here?

Is there a site devoted to keeping up with the show? I have gone looking for streamed/torrented shows, but they seem to exist more for specific bands/artists, i.e., Arashi appearances hosted and/or subbed by Arashi groups, Ayu appearances by Ayu groups, etc.

I used to watch the show on a cable station (here in America) that would randomly play different Asian TV shows at different times during the week. It's how I first learned about Gackt (anyone catch or remember the episodes where he plays pool with one of the hosts?), Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, etc. I watched it when I was studying abroad, but now I can't see it on TV here or there, and I keep missing it when I try to tune in via Keyhole.

In that vein, I wished to share this with all of you.



Thank you for your time.

So I was bored, and decided to dig back up about the news on Johnny molestation charges, so here's some snippets on it.

In July 15th of 2003, the Tokyo high court handed down a verdict that shocked the news media. Or rather, it should have shocked them.

The case was a lawsuit brought by Johnny Kitagawa (the plaintiff) against Bunshun Weekly Magazine (the defendant). In 1999, Bunshun had published a series of articles titled "The monster of Show Business," which aggressively pursued accounts of Johnny Kitagawa's sexual harassment of the underage boys in his employ. In the articles, Shunbun wrote that, "We have factual evidence to back up these very serious allegations."

For a long time, suspicions of Johnny Kitagawa's sexual predation and mistreatment of boys had been circulating, making this a "public secret" of Japanese entertainment. But thanks to the trial, for the first time, these rumors were investigated by the legal system, the evidence was weighed objectively by judges, and the verdict was: the rumors were true.

Bunshun Weekly printed the following controversial statements:

Today was my first day of classes. I'm not really looking forward to the next few months of endless papers/tests/presentations/etc.

So Arama, when do you start school? How long until it ENDS? What do you hate about school? What do you love? Taking any interesting/boring classes this year?

Let out all of your school related feelings here!

I'm staying at my Hippie Aunt's house (yes, for some reason I feel the need to capitalize that) with her sheltered but curious 12 and under kids, and they want to see this 'Asian music' I'm always listening to on my laptop.

So can you guys link me to non offensive/sexual etc, jpop/kpop/cpop pvs? Happy, contagious, catchy ones that will make people smile/laugh etc~ AT least some of them should be subbed, for my aunt <3 Thank you! The first one I thought of is Ai Otsuka, then Orange Caramel, any other recommendations?

I wanted to show her Hurricane Venus, but the pelvic thrusting might turn her off >.0

Some cuteness for your time.

Hello all! I’ve recently completed my project of making a pimp post for all the members of the current lineup of Morning Musume. Because some of them got a bit long I separated them into different posts, also just in case you want to read up on just one member, its easier.

These posts aren’t meant to tell you everything about a particular girl, so if I didn’t put in that your favorite is really good at playing hula hoop, don’t have an aneurysm. These posts are just made so that new fans will more easily be able to see the different personalities so they know who they want to discover more about.

That said, please comment, discuss, pimp out, enjoy.

Also, as some of you know, I recently made a pimp post for AKB48’s singles, not the girls. I do, however, provide some helpful links at the bottom of the post if you want to learn more about specific girls.

That being said,please comment, discuss, pimp out, enjoy.
