Starting Intermediate Japanese

chikyuu-ha-dou-naru

For those who have been reading Lyrical Spark! for a while now, you know that it originally started as my blog for elementary Japanese. This year however I decided to keep my class blog separate but at the end of the year, Lyrical Spark will probably end up cannibalizing it so that I don’t have …

Happy Birthday Miku!

miku-love

YAY! It’s been a whole year since our virtual singing idol made her debut and started one of the coolest otaku crazes in recent memory. I’ve tried playing with the Vocaloid 2 software but my lack of musical composition training means I can’t participate in the fun of making new songs for Miku. Still I …

日本語を勉強している理由

子供の時日本に住んでいたので、昔から日本文化にきょうみがあって、日本語を学びたかったです。でもアメリカ人のアパートに住んでいましたから、日本語をぜんぜんならいませんでした。あまり分からなかったけど、あそこで子供のアニメを見たり、日本のおんがくを聞いたりしましたから、日本文化が大好きになりました。

Reiuzi Utsuho vs. Airman

iDOLM@STER Fraulein Revoltechs

iM@S Fraulein Haruka, Ami & Mami 2

Time for my first real figure post ever! Today i will be presenting my three Snow Strawberry iDOLM@STER Frauleins. Everyone seems to be familiar with Max Factory’s line of articulate Figmas yet I rarely hear about Kaiyodo’s posable alternatives. Since I own three Fraulein‘s and have had experience with Figmas, I’ll be making comparison’s between …

Lyrics: I Want to Shout Out “I Love Yuri” Yamai ver.

[Nico Nico Link][DDL] Since I’m still on my yuri high after watching Marimite, I felt like romanizing the lyrics to the very relevant song Yuri ga Suki da to Sakebitai. Unfortunately my rusty Japanese sucks so I can’t provide a decent translation for the song at this time. Enjoy this wonderful song anyways:

Maria-sama ga Miteru: 3 Series, 3 Days

Gokigenyou~ After four and a half years I have finally jumped onto the Marimite bandwagon and watched the entire anime within the span of a few days. My conclusion: Pure Awesome. Marimite is quite possibly my favorite shoujo series ever; it is heavily character-based and lacks the sexual aspects that many seinen yuri series tend …
