We’re celebrating 20 years of Seo Taiji~~~
Holy mother of… Cartoon Network in 20 years old, and they’re celebrating big with this video reuniting 20-years-worth of CN characters. I recognize most of them (even if it’s not by name), but I wish there was more variety of characters shown (I know, I know… not really practical), but there should have been more of the older characters in Cartoon Cartoon’s old day past.
The Cartoon Network YouTube Channel is not available to me :(

Harper’s Bazaar China loves to celebrate with Faye Wong and photographer Chen Man, this is why both of them grace the cover of this year’s anniversary Harper’s Bazaar edition celebrating their 26th year. They celebrated their 25th year the same way.
So being the lover of photography that I am, I went around and look them all up — including last years photos. You can also check this Faye/HB photoshoot.
And as you can see, I have instantly fallen deeply in love with photographer Chen Man’s work. And I’ve already ordered her book Chen Man: Works 2003-2010, and added her tag xD so you can maybe expect more Chen Man postings in the future.
I haven’t really been properly following Okaasan to Issho — this means I haven’t been practicing my Japanese much — so I was really REALLY surprised: first, when they changed the weather mascots so soon. I suspect it didn’t suit well with the whole Tohoku Earthquake. They seemed to have lasted just a couple of years compared to some of the others…
Anyway, the second thing that surprised me was… Itou Mayu is no longer there! Apparently she did her last show by the end of March. Sadly, I haven’t found any clip of that online.
It’s around that time of the year again — a few days, give or take — it’s been 4 years since I’ve been in Yu Aoi’s fandom! Admittedly, less diligently than before… but surprisingly, still going at it.
You know FOUR is my bad luck number. Bad things happen with that number, so I’m extra crossing my fingers this year. In the meantime… here’s Yu-chan! Being Yu-chan! With some pastries~~~
