Name: Jennifer

Location: Bay Area, California

Age (if you want to say it): See above. I don't really want to post my age now, since it would be the highest number. E9016b63bb498b99cde139a855d3294f5539176d_r

Gender: Female (with a perverted-male-brain)

Hobbies: fighting crime, back-alley abortions

Year you got into Japanese music: Late 90s

How/why (the interest in Japanese music): I went to Japan for a couple weeks in high school (sadly, before I was really a J-pop fan), and some friends got me into some anime and J-pop (Hikaru Utada - Automatic, Ayumi Hamasaki - immature, Maaya Sakamoto/Escaflowne soundtrack). Hard for me to explain what draws me to it, but it just does. lol

Favorite Japanese musical artist(s): Ringo Shiina/Tokyo Jihen, the brilliant green/Tommy heavenly6, capsule, YUI... and this list could go on for quite a while. 1aa266c65bbc74da8c3931c8312021a5857fb6f6_r

Yoroshiku!
