If I had to describe the year of 2017, I would describe it as me being a failure. I failed a blogging, writing in general, failed a good couple of my classes during the autumn semester (which was not great.. made me pretty depressed this month). The year has been both physically and mentally exhausting/painful for me. I won't go into to much detail about that, maybe I'll talk about it in my diary blog. I'll have a new year's reflection of myself personally published either later today or tomorrow. But the main point is, I may be a failure but I will not stop blogging. /whacked;
|IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! WHOO~! ♪|
This year, I made it my goal to listen to a lot of J-pop songs as possible. Last year, I was a bit of a frenzy for K-pop and for American pop music. I really wanted to immerse myself more into J-pop this year than I ever did before. At the end of this year, when I looked at the list of J-pop songs I've loved (like blasting it everywhere and out loud, that kind of love) - the initial list was 70 but I narrowed it done to 20 similar to last year~ Maybe next year I will do a Top 50. Maybe~ lol.
I listened a lot of hella great songs and I listened to a lot of songs that are meh. However, what songs came out on top for me? Here's a list of what those songs are!

Welcome back to Kudo Haruka Appreciation Week. Today is Day Three!
Despite the same name as day one, this actually has a different theme/main point. I did not think this through when I created the banners - granted, I was in a rush to get this banners created (made these a whole month ago because my laptop was dying). So previously, I talked about two singles that really screamed 'Kudo Haruka!' However, I also want to take the time to share three more additional songs that really make her shine and that I know for sure she could rock as a solo song.
Like the way I'm thinking of this is that if Haruka were to release a cover album or some sorts, would songs would she cover (assuming they're all from Morning Musume/Hello! Project in general). So three songs that really make her shine and I know for sure that she could rock as a solo song are– /drum roll;
Welcome back to Kudo Haruka Appreciation Week, in which I dedicated an entire week to talking about Kudo Haruka while also trying to hold myself back from crying. /whacked; Yesterday, I talked about the one song that really made me notice Haruka years ago. Today, I'll be talking about two singles. These will be two singles* in which I personally felt that Haruka really shined – two singles that really screamed out 'Kudo Haruka!'
*Note: I'll be talking about the main A-sides, and not the overall single.
Here is day two, in which I'll be talking about two singles today.
And those two singles are going to be– /drum roll;
It's time for the tear fest to begin. I sincerely didn't want to do it because I'm just gonna get super depressed doing this. On this coming December 11, Kudo Haruka will finally graduate from Morning Musume. Oh god, I can feel my heart slowly breaking into more tiny pieces the more I think about it. So, as she is my most favorite member from Morning Musume, I personally wanted to do an appreciation week for her but it's going to be a tiny bit different this time around.
Welcome to Kudo Haruka Appreciation Week, where I'll be talking about things related to Duu and not just reviewing songs and music videos all week long (that gets really tiring after a few days, really). Here is Day One and today I'll be talking about one song which is– /drum roll;
