HAPPY 5TH ANNIVERSARY!!! May 16, 2013

Filed under: ~Announcements~ — solarblade @ 8:13 am

Wow, I never thought that I’d make it to 5 years, usually review blogs like mine never really last this long, so I feel like I’m really setting a milestone here and I couldn’t continue without the comments and support of my readers ^_^!

It’s really sad that this year, the J-pop review podcast, Gaijin Kanpai ended because they were the voice of what we do as reviewers and critics.

Hopefully there’ll be a surge of reviewers once again, I love reading reviews and while I don’t comment too much, it really gives me a fun look into what people love (and hate) about Japanese music.

I can’t promise another 5 years, but I’ll try to take this road a bit longer!!!

(if you readers have some interesting idea, let me know…I’ll think about it!!)

THANK YOU, READERS OF KURAYAMI MONOGATARI

(btw this post is two days before the 5 year, but I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow soooo… doing this early ^^)

 

So I return BUT… April 13, 2013

Filed under: ~Announcements~ — solarblade @ 7:54 am

Yes, I am back from a nice lengthy break, but I’ve given thought and I can’t keep up with everyone I’ve added anymore so I’ve decided to review what I want when I want…So music reviews have mostly been axed haha, but I will review things that really impressed me or by groups that I’ve REALLY came to love.  It’ll be hard to catch up with various things…but I wanna review video games more as well…even it out….

 

What do you guys think, yay or nay? 😄

 

Yeah, I’m going to take a break for a while March 28, 2013

Filed under: ~Announcements~ — solarblade @ 1:06 am

If you haven’t noticed, I’m so far behind releases now….my interest has started to dwindle a bit, so Im going to go on a break for a while…..I know releases are going to pile up but I do need time off since I’ve been doing this nearly 5 years straight so it’s not bad if I take a break right?

 

Yup, I decided it was time to close shop…..JUST KIDDING! April 20, 2012

Filed under: ~Announcements~ — solarblade @ 2:08 am

So, in recent times I’ve become quite enamored over H!P and the entire selection of songs that are present ^_^  So I made a blog so I can well gush over said company with Iroppoi Twilgiht Game.  Hopefully I can get some of my readers to check it out too…even though there really isn’t much cept my introduction there but hey support it ^_^  I wanna share my excitement, my disappointments…and futures with you all ^_^

 

SOOOO… March 13, 2012

Since wordpress decided to be lame and change formats on my Future Review page and there’s no way to bring it back, I’m going to delete the two pages. (EDIT: I got it working correctly again, ignore this hot mess) BUT….

Also because of the recent shutdowns of tons of sites, I’ve also decided to cut back on reviews on tons of artists…

Now the current reviews will stay put be there’s certain artists whose full discographys I still have planned to do like Hitomi Shimatani and Ayumi Hamasaki which I’ll still keep up with but some of them like metronome and RENTRER EN SOI I’m going to leave behind because the downloads are mostly kapoot.

Also, for the second time…I’m having to cut down some artists.

  • aNNina (but Annabel stays)
  • Kazusa
  • mochA
  • JYONGRI

I might have to do a page of stuff I have to review from other stuff not listed in the list of reviews

 

Couple of things are happening! February 15, 2012

Filed under: ~Announcements~ — solarblade @ 1:25 pm

So yeah, I’m actually wanting to kickstart Fated Light up again so be on the lookout for new posts…here’s the link!!!  If you want to join comment here and I’ll see if you’d be a good part of the family (as I like to call it).  So there you have with that!

 

 

 

Also, if you haven’t joined Kurayami’s facebook fanpage do so! It’ll be worth your while to see me write on completely different stuff! here’s the link to that site!

 

 

 

Also I’ve sent an e-mail to a fellow site, Hello! Sayunii…maybe to join their group and help out in places so it means it’ll get busy but this site will still be my pride and joy!
